Brock O’Brien making strides thanks to faith and family By Loretta Cozart On September 5, Brock O’Brien was on his way home to Grover from his job at Tryon Distributor’s in Charlotte. As he turned left with the light onto I-485 at Arrowood Road, a driver t-boned his car at high speed. Brock’s vehicle was reduced to half its width from the impact, and he was trapped inside. EMTs used the Jaws of Life to extract him; he was unresponsive and was taken by ambulance to Atrium Main. “I was supposed to be in the car that day,” said Brock’s younger brother Damien. “My brother and I are best friends and do everything together. We have jobs at the same company in Charlotte and commute. That day I had a photo shoot, so I wasn’t with him. If I had been, I would have been killed.” Damien was hours away when he got the call from his family, parents Cindy and Ben O’Brien, and younger brother Thor, that Brock had been in a serious car accident in Charlotte. He jumped in his car and drove directly to the hospital. Brock was in a coma on a ventilator. Damien recalls his family meeting with the doctors in a Boardroom at the hos-

Damien and Brock O'Brien before the accident. Photos provided pital days later. “They gave us no hope of recovery. We respect their training and expertise and heard their advice, but we decided to put our faith in God to heal Brock.” The day of the accident, Cindy and Damien quit their jobs to support Brock at the hospital. They stayed in a nearby hotel and Ben joined them on weekends. The family spent their time in the Panera at the hospital and took one-and-half-hour shifts sitting with Brock.

Only one person was allowed to be with him. “Two weeks after the accident, I was with Brock when physical therapy came in. They told me they were going to sit him up on the side of the bed, so I decided to record it for the family to see. I was looking at Brocks feet. As a tilted up, I could see that Brock’s eyes were open and he blinked his eyes.” When Damien ended his shift, he ran to the elevator See O’BRIEN, Page 8A

By Loretta Cozart During the Cleveland County School Board Meeting on October 11, members voted unanimously to place Central School in Kings Mountain on their surplus property list. This is the first step in selling the property. A home and land behind Grover School are also being sold. According to a report by school board member Danny Blanton, “The Operations Committee met on Friday, September 24 at 9 a.m. and reaffirmed the decision to move forward with the potential sale of the house and property at Grover School and the Central School property. A formal motion to declare these properties as surplus will come at tonight’s board meeting and information about the sale of the property will be included on the district’s website,” he said. “Regarding the Central School property, the district will include a 12-month window to allow the district time to relocate the Plant Opera-

tions Division.” Later in the meeting, when the topic of surplus property was discussed, Blanton spoke again saying, “I don’t remember us talking about the 12-months. You say we did. I must not have too good a memory. But it wouldn’t take me 12-months to go over there and take a truck, pack that up, and move them over to Plant Operations in Shelby,” he said. “I just can’t see if we got somebody wanting to buy the place that we take 12-months to move out, because that might cut the price of what somebody wants to give for it. But it shouldn’t take our maintenance crew 12-months to move out,” he concluded. Dr. Fisher explained that the idea behind the 12-month window was to allow ample time to plan and get things out of the facility. The school system also stores things in the gym. “We’ll need ample time to get things out,” he explained. School policy is to then See CENTRAL, Page 2A

From Page 1A afford the board of county commissioners the first opportunity to obtain any real property at the fair market price or a price negotiated between the two boards. The Cleveland County GIS lists the tax value of the 5.25acre property as $1,626,504. County Commissioners met last night (October 19). According to Cleveland County Schools, they utilize the upset bid process as outlined in Policy 6560 and Article 12 of Chapter 160A of the enacted legislation of the NC General Statutes. That statue reads, “The sale of property by advertisement for sealed bids shall be done in the manner prescribed by law for the purchase of property, except that in the case of real property the advertisement for bids shall be begun not less than 30 days before the date fixed for opening bids.” On Cleveland County Schools’ Bids and Proposals webpage, the property was listed by Friday, October 15, and directed that all bids for the Central School property should be sealed and sent to Dan Karpinski at 400 West Marion Street, Shelby, NC by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, November 3, 2021. The 5% deposit will be required from the highest bidder by 4 p.m. on Friday, November 5, 2021. Contingent upon the receipt of bids and the action of the Cleveland County Board of Commissioners, the Cleveland County Board of Education will consider bids at the November 8th business meeting. Representatives at Gannett Classifieds, for The Star, and Kings Mountain Herald confirmed that no advertisement for bids for Central School have run in their respective papers as of Friday, October 15. Depending upon the date the advertisement is published, 30-days is required before the bid process can begin according to state statutes. Because the recommendation came from committee, a second to Mr. Blanton’s motion was not required. There was no discussion and the board voted unanimously (9-0) to place Central School in Kings Mountain and the house and property behind Grover School on the surplus property list.

Kings Mountain Family YMCA has started an innovative learning program locally called A2i. READ Cleveland County is a campaign aligning community organizations and schools with a common mission: to bring all students to grade level reading by the end of 3rd grade. Learning Ovations is an outcome delivery company that partners with school districts, charter, and private networks to accomplish this goal. “Together, rigorous research shows, we can achieve over 90%+

Photo by CCYMCA of children reading at grade level by the end of third grade,” they share. Community engagement the key to student success according to a study conducted by Learning Innovations. At their website, they share that “research on more than 21,000 students in districts across the country shows that by the end of 3rd grade, students' Growth Rates (what's happening in school) accounts for 60% of their reading ability. Community Impact (what's happening outside of

school) accounts for 38%. The combined effort of schools and communities accounts for a total of 98% of students' success. By aligning these efforts, student’s literacy outcomes are maximized.” “The A2i program will work to help local Cleveland County school children to close the reading loss gap due to the pandemic,” said Cleveland County Family YMCA VP of Operations/Senior Exec. Director Kevin Osborne. “The program is designed for students in pre-k to 3rd

grade.” “In our YMCA After School program, we are happy to offer a reading program that helps advance children’s learning even after the school bell rings,” staff lead Ranata Wingo added. “We believe that when children have good reading skills, they gain more confidence and when kids have more confidence they thrive. Children are the key to our future, and we must invest in them with positivity and love.”

TODAY’S QUOTE:

OPINION

Courage is fear holding on a minute longer. –George S. Patton

Pieces of Kings Mountain History Last week, I learned that Cleveland County School Board voted to place Central School on LORETTA the surplus property list. COZART When I heard this news, my heart sank. I never thought I would see this property let go by the school system or our city. Central School was the community’s gathering place for almost a century until the Community Center was built in the 1970s. Discussions to sell the property have probably gone on for decades; obviously a facility of this size is expensive to maintain. Nonetheless, Central School has been the heart of Kings Mountain since the city’s founding. To lose it would be a terrible loss for the history of our community. In my days matriculating through Kings Mountain City Schools, Central School was the Grand Dame of all the schools. Situated on 5-plus acres of land in one of the most picturesque neighborhoods of the city, the property is surrounded by beautiful homes, neatly manicured. The school was well kept and used by the community to celebrate both the good and sad events in our history. When William Jennings Bryan ran for President, he visited Kings Mountain near the time of the anniversary of the Battle of Kings Mountain. He ran for office three times, the last in 1908. He arrived by train and was being taken to Central School in a carriage. During WWI, the very first casualty from Cleveland County was Otis. D. Green, a resident of the Burlington Mill Hill area. When the war began, Green was one of the first to register. A short time later he was killed in battle and later brought home to be buried in Mountain Rest Cemetery. Clyde R. Hoey delivered his eulogy in the auditorium of Central School and 2,000 people came to the funeral. Those who couldn’t fit into the auditorium waited outside in the rain until the eulogy was complete. At the time, Kings Mountain had a little more than 2,000 residents and they lined the streets along the way to the cemetery to pay their final respects to Green. Hoey later become the fifty-ninth governor of North Carolina

In 1923, the front lawn of Central School hosted the annual commemoration of the Battle of Kings Mountain. In 1923, a huge gathering for the anniversary of the Battle of Kings Mountain took place on the front lawn of the school grounds. A sea of bodies as far as the eye could see filled the space, as a special stage beneath the huge columns of Central School was constructed to seat dignitaries and provide an area for orators. During the Great Depression, the Works Progress Administration funded construction of the gymnasium at Central School. This project that was completed in 1938, a few years after Central School was rebuilt due to coal stove fire. Until then, students played basketball on the stage of the auditorium. The front columns of the school were not replaced in the reconstruction. Annual events took place at the school marking milestones for generations of tight knit classmates as they made their way to life after high school. I think my grief for the loss of this important part the community’s history is because things have begun to change so quickly now due to recent development in the city. Within the next five years, 5,000 new homes will be built and our population of 10,000 residents for the last 60 years will double in size. New residents won’t know, or necessarily appreciate the town’s history, let alone work to preserve it. And the things we appreciate, like Central School or Mauney Memorial Library, will be considered dinosaurs of a bygone era. In days before community centers, YMCAs, and the internet, Central School was the heart of Kings Mountain. I love the architecture of Central School. The threestory structure was quite

intimidating for a 12-year-old student who had to make her way in a new place in 7th grade. Could I remember my locker number or even open the lock? What started out as intimidating became quite familiar in two short years. Central was also special because it combined all the students in my class together under one roof for the very first time and we finished school together as friends six years later. Today, I am still friends with most of my classmates. I worry if the proper precautions are being taken to protect Central School? If covenants on the deed aren’t put into place, the property won’t be protected from demolition. That is a real concern that is likely to occur. We also want to protect the Central School Historic District, along with other historic areas of town. It is likely the school could be converted to apartments or condos, much like Loray Mill or the Ashley in Gastonia. Would that be so terrible? The new owner’s HOA would be responsible to maintain the property and grounds. Perhaps it is better to repurpose than to destroy, especially if the building and surrounding neighborhood is preserved. Whatever happens to Central, the outcome depends upon us. If you worked or attended school there, you understand this special place. The steps we take today will impact this section of Kings Mountain for decades to come. Take time now to learn what is going on here and share your issues and concerns with elected officials at the local, county, and state levels. Your participation today could likely save this piece of Kings Mountain’s history.

Looking Back On Tuesday, December 13, 1938, Kings Mountain dedicated their new gymnasium. According to an article in the Herald, Superintendent B.N. Barnes invited the community for a presentation by Dr. Oliver K. Cornwell at 7:30 p.m. in the Central School Auditorium. Dr. Cornwell was the head of the physical education department at the University of North Carolina. According to the article, Dr. Cornwell was mainly responsible for the experimental work in physical education in Kings Mountain. During his presentation, Dr. Cornwell said he thought, “the duty of public education to teach more than what can be learned in books.” wCharles Thomasson, a member of the Kings Mountain School Board, explained the building program that took place in the local system. Dr. L.P. Baker dedicated the building and tours of the facility followed. Photos of the facility show the building is little changed from the facility that exists today. When the cornerstone of the gymnasium was placed on December 2, 1937, the following items were placed in it: History of the Kings Mountain Schools 1874 – 1937, Commencement program May 1937, article concerning the rating of Kings Mountain Schools from the Kings Mountain Herald, Annual School edition of the Kings Mountain Herald, Charlotte Observer dated Tuesday, November 28, 1937, Picture of Board members, Superintendent, Coach of Athletics, picture of the Commercial department from 1936, facts concerning the cost of the building, school directory of Kings Mountain teachers 1937-1938, a new 1937 penny, a new 1937 dime, picture of 1937 monitors who were influential in the working of the new physical education building.

Freedom to enjoy life’s passions Steady cash flow comes from steady work. If you want money you have Glenn Mollette to do Guest Editorial something that produces money. Much of what we want to do in life does not always produce cash. We may experience fun, enjoyment, fulfillment and entertainment but it may not render dollars. Often, much of what we enjoy in life typically costs us money and usually a lot of money. You may love to play golf and even aspire to make a professional tour. You could spend most of your life and tens of thousands of dollars on green fees, memberships, lessons, travel and more and still never make a dime from playing golf. You may love movies, theatre and plays and spend years in drama schools and Hollywood and never get a job that pays any money. This story is true for those who dream of making it big in music. I’ve talked to numbers of singers in Nashville, Tennessee, who have spent years singing for tips and often for free. They pursued their dream relentlessly and some ended up homeless because while they pursued their dream, dollars were not coming in to support them. Writers have spent their

lives trying to write one great book that someone would notice. Painters often paint their entire lives without much fanfare or few sales. Would-be entertainers and ‘artsy’ folks from all walks of life know that the road to success is filled with disappointments, constant rejection, little to no support, and poverty. I was a weird guy in high school as I aspired to be a full-time minister. Sixteen years old was an odd time in life to start shunning my electric guitar, lose my passion for basketball and aspire to be a minister. It also didn’t do a lot for my dating life either. My dad thought I was crazy but never said a whole lot. Once he did say, “Why don’t you get a good job and preach on the side?” I thought that was a crazy idea because I knew of too many ministers who had full-time careers and seemed to do okay. Thus, I went to school until I was 29 years old to be a full-time minister. The post-college degrees I received for attending college fulltime for seven years were enough as if it was time spent for medical school, law school, or whatever. But I pursued my calling and followed my heart. I don’t regret pursuing my dream. I had about 35 years of being an average wage earner as a minister and sometimes did better than average. However, my dad had respectable advice as parent’s usually do. Today I give the same

advice. Follow your dream but you need a sawmill on the side for stable cash flow. Church has changed. Many churches are small and can’t afford a full-time minister. Sadly, often ministers and congregations can’t survive in harmony for more than a couple of years so this makes for a very unstable life. When I say, “You need a sawmill on the side,” I mean you need something in your life you can count on. You need a plumber’s license, a teaching certificate, carpentry skills or a business of some kind that renders dollars. Why? You can’t always depend on what you love doing to produce income. It may be what you love to do and you may be terrific at what you do but often you can’t count on it financially. Find a skill that people must have or want very badly. If you are in a job that someone must have then there will be financial rewards. If they want very badly want you have to offer there will be financial rewards. If they want and need it both you are ‘golden’. It may not be your passion but you will generally make enough money from your “sawmill” so you can sing, dance, paint, entertain, write, act or even preach on the side. When you do what you love to do without the constant pressure of needing money then you are free to do it enjoyably without the stress of wondering from where your next meal will come.

An Eternal Legacy Multiple Generations In the Old Testament, I love the phrase the “God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”. This is grandfather, father, and son. Each had a personal relationship with God. Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel by God, transmitted a great spiritual legacy to his family which brought about major blessings for them. In Genesis 35:2 (NIV), Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you and purify yourselves and change your clothes.” Timothy, from the New Testament, was a youth who had been brought up to believe the Old Testament scriptures and then believed in Jesus. As a result of his

Names like Rockefeller and Rothschild come to mind when we mention generational wealth and influence. However, I believe God DANYALE PATTERSON also wants us to leave a spiritual inheritance that impacts our posterity. Parents and Grandparents alike, can introduce Christ and disciple their family members. Nurturing one’s lineage to love and serve God wholeheartedly and reflect his character would change the world!

upbringing, he was mentored by Apostle Paul and helped to establish several churches to equip believers. In 2 Timothy 1:5 (NASB) Paul states, “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.” God Notices You Not only is the legacy that we leave our families important, but God observes every aspect of our lives. Jeremiah 17:10 (NLT) states, “But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.” Here are a few scriptures that reveal a portion of what will count in eternity: Malachi 3:16 (NIV) “Then

those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name.” Matthew 25:34-36 (ESV) “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food…. I was a stranger and you welcomed me. I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison, and you came to me.” James 1:12 (ESV) “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to

those who love him.” PRAY THIS PRAYER: ” Lord you are good, and your mercy endures forever. Forgive me in the areas where I have failed to glorify you in thoughts, words, and actions. Help me to be mindful that what I do in this life will follow me in eternity. Give me wisdom to leave a legacy not only for my family, but also through acts of kindness to those around me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.” Danyale Patterson is co-founder of Enlighten Ministries, a 501c3 organization with her husband Brandon Patterson.

Auxiliary hosts district meetings at the Legion By Loretta Cozart American Legion Auxiliary Unit 155 hosted the Department of North Carolina District 12 and District 13 meetings at the Otis D. Green American Legion on October 16 at 10 a.m. Forty-five women attended, many making reports and sharing information about initiatives within their own communities. District 13 President

Kings Mountain Little Theater’s Gala drew lots of guests to Liberty Mountain Garden. Photos by Bryan Hallman Brock was off the ventilator but remained unresponsive for two weeks. (Photos provided)

Reenactors set the stage for the evening’s festivities.

Brock opened his eyes for the first time since his accident two weeks before.

Guests mingle with reenactors. While cannons were not used during the Battle of Kings Mountain, they are a key feature in the Liberty Mountain Drama.

With the tracheotomy out, Brock is getting better.

O’BRIEN From Page 1A and took it to the lobby. He then sprinted to the Panera. “I busted into the Panera yelling for my family to watch the video. As I played it for them, they saw Brock open his eyes. The screams of joy could be heard throughout the lobby. We were all so happy and thankful to God.” In the six weeks that have followed, Brock has made great strides. He went off the vent and moved to rehab. The first time he rode the exercise bike, he rode more than a mile. And the family

got housing provided by the hospital so they could be there to support him. “The Lord has blessed our family with so many people. People that we don’t know have contacted us saying they have seen our videos on Facebook and read your story. One person told us they hadn’t prayed in six or seven years because God took his father away from him and he didn’t want that connection with God anymore. After reading Brock’s story, he shared, ‘I prayed for the first time in years for you, your family, and Brock. Now I want to regain my relationship with God again because of your story.’ Through our posts, we are

making the most out of a negative situation.’” Damien said, “Brock can talk now. Sometimes his words are inaudible and sometimes he sounds flat out normal. The other day, Brock waved me over to come to him and I did. He had me lean in toward his mouth and he whispered in my ear, ‘I’m thankful for you, love you so much’. And then he proceeded to give me a kiss on the forehead and a tight hug. I could run through walls.” Brock’s check out date is scheduled for October 26. That could change, but for now that is the date the family hopes to bring him home. Brock has made tre-

mendous strides toward recovery in the last six-weeks. He is getting excellent care, but the love and devotion of his family, and their faith in God, have given this young man exactly what he needs to get better every day. The family hasn’t setup a GoFundMe page, because they don’t want to solicit money; that isn’t their way. But their churches have established opportunities to help if it falls upon your heart to do so. Cindy, Ben, and Thor O’Brien attend Chestnut Ridge Baptist. https://crbc4him.churchcenter.com/giving. Damian attends his girlfriend’s father’s church: Christian Freedom Baptist in Kings Mountain.

Part of the celebration included celebratory musket fire.

KM spikers clinch Big South, await playoff pairings Kings Mountain High’s volleyball team went into yesterday’s final game at Crest with a perfect 13-0 record and at least a co-championship in the Big South Conference wrapped up. A victory over the Lady Chargers would give the KM ladies their second straight undefeated conference season and outright championship. The Lady Mountaineers will not learn their first round playoff opponent until after the playoff seedings are announced by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Thursday in Chapel Hill, but they will definitely be at home for their first game. In Big South action last week, the Lady Mountain-

eers defeated Stuart Cramer 25-19, 25-20, 25-10 and Gastonia Ashbrook 25-7, 25-10, 25-3. That gave them a 17-2 overall record heading into the Crest match. During the past week, KM senior Aaliyah Byers recorded her 1,000th kill for her four-year varsity career. Against Stuart Cramer, Byers registered 20 kills, six digs, three service points, two blocks and six serve receptions. Paige Bagwell continued her outstanding play up front with 30 assists, six digs and eight service points. Meile Songaila had nine kills, three digs, three service points and 12 serve receptions.

Kings Mountain knew going into Friday night’s game with Stuart Cramer at John Gamble Stadium that the Purple Storm’s outstanding junior quarterback, Justin Rocquemore, would be filling the air with passes. He did. In fact, just 17 seconds into the game he hit senior wide receiver Dameian Bentley for a 73-yard touchdown and a quick 7-0 lead. The Mountaineers rebounded and went on to claim their seventh straight victory, 41-28. Kings Mountain hopes to keep its winning streak intact Friday at Gastonia Ashbrook to set up a conference championship showdown with head coach Greg Lloyd’s alma mater, Crest, in the regular season finale Friday, Oct. 29 at Gamble Stadium. “They were a good team,” Lloyd said of the Storm. “They’ve played everybody tough. It was the competitive game we thought it would be. “I thought we did a good job coming back and scoring after they went up on us. It was a good team victory. We gave up some coverage plays but people stepped it up.” Rocquemore would go on to account for 314 (249 passing and 65 rushing) of the Storm’s 351 total yards. KM finished with 396 total yards (225 rushing and 171 passing) with reserve running back Micah Ward rushing for 105 on 16 carries and Peyton Fisher catching three passes for 59 yards and D’Andre Hoyle two for 59. Rocquemore’s outstanding play kept the visitors in the game for a while, but the Mountaineers would build a 35-14 lead before the Storm rallied for a couple late scores. The Mountaineers shook off that early TD to drive the ensuing kickoff 55 yards in seven plays to tie the game at 7-all, and they would not trail again. Robert Kendrick carried

Big AJ Richardson bulled his way into the end zone and Jaden Ellis kicked the point-after to tie the score. The Mountaineers surprised everyone in the sta-

dium with an onside kick, which Ellis recovered at the 49 yard line. A 17-yard reception by London Brown gave KM a first down at the nine yard line. Two straight penalties pushed them back to the 43. Facing a fourth and two at the 26, Zay Smith went around end for 14 yards and a first down at

the 12. In two straight carries, Richardson bulled his way into the end zone for a 14-7 KM lead. Aided by a pass interference penalty on KM, the Storm was able to drive 74 yards for a four-yard TD run by Rocquemore to tie it again with 11:46 left in the first half.

From Page 1 B The Storm had an opportunity to take the lead moments later when KM lost a fumble at its own 35. But a holding penalty backed them up to the 43 and a fourth and 17 punt attempt was partially blocked. KM took over at the 31. With receptions by Sel Randolph and Fisher along with the running of Smith and Micah Ward, who had entered the game in place of the injured Robert Kendrick and finished with 105 yards rushing on 16 carries, the Mountaineers drove to the Cramer 18 where they faced third and 15. Again, the Mountaineers reached into their bag of tricks. Quarterback Lamont Littlejohn threw a lateral to Sel Randolph who hit Peyton Fisher wide open behind the Storm defense and KM led 21-14 with 5:06 on the second quarter clock. The Mountaineers tacked on two touchdowns in the final 1:26 of the first half to basically clinch the victory. Ward went over from two yards out to cap a 65-yard, five play drive to make it 28-14. On the Storm’s next possession, AJ Richardson registered one of his four sacks on the night to force and third and 21 at the Cramer 38. On the next play, sophomore defensive back Jaqualyn Sanders intercepted a pass and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown and a 35-14 halftime lead. Cramer rallied midway of the third quarter and

cut the margin to 35-21 on a 33-yard pass reception by Bentley. It capped a five play, 57 yard drive on which Rocquemore ran twice for 10 yards and passed three times for 47. A fumble recovery by Fisher on the last play of the third quarter set up a 60-yard, nine-play drive that ended with Richardson’s seven yard burst up the middle and a 41-21 lead. Along the way, Hoyle caught a 29-yard pass and Jake Lloyd added four carries for 24 yards. KM also benefitted from a personal foul call on Cramer for targeting. Cramer was able to tack its final TD with 6:50 remaining on a 28-yard reception by Marcus Nelson. Cramer got the ball back one last time late in the game when they stopped KM at their own 37 on a fake punt. The Storm couldn’t take advantage though, as two sacks by Richardson for minus 17 yards put the win in the bag. Looking to this week’s game at Ashbrook, Lloyd sees a vastly improved team since the beginning of the season. “They’ve gotten a lot better as the year’s gone on,” he said. “Now they’re really getting cranked up. They run a spread offense and pass the ball a lot. Just like last week, their quarterback can run and pass. “And, it will be their senior night so they will be fired up,” he said. “We have to be ready to play.”

State Hwy. Patrol Operation Stop Arm GCPD charges Dallas man with sex crimes In support of Operation Stop Arm week, the State Highway Patrol will be aggressively enforcing stop arm and other traffic violations in and around school zones and school bus stops. The operation will run daily from 6:00 a.m. on Monday Oct. 18 through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22 and runs in conjunction with National School Bus Safety Week. The Patrol expects Operation Stop Arm will decrease violations and reduce school bus incidents involving children. “The ultimate goal of this week is to help educate, spread

awareness and work to prevent needless tragedies involving our children,” said Colonel Freddy L. Johnson, Jr., commander of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol. “All roadway users can join our commitment to putting an end to stopped school bus violations. By adhering to speed limits and avoiding distractions we can make great strides in reaching this attainable goal.” Passing a stopped school bus is a Class 1 misdemeanor. If convicted, a person will receive five driving points on their driver’s license and is sub-

ject to fines up to $500. Passing a stopped school bus is a Class I felony if the driver strikes an individual and a Class H felony should the violation result in a death. For further information concerning school bus safety and illegal passing please visit the Department of Public Instruction’s school bus safety web site at http://www.ncbussafety.org/. For more information about this campaign, please contact F/Sgt. Chris Knox at (984)3496577 or email at Christopher. Knox@ncdps.gov

Gaston County Police have charged Matthew Kia Ponder, 27, of 1397 Alexis-High Shoals Rd. Dallas, with two felony counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child, one felony count of Statutory Rape of a Child, one felony count of 1st Degree Statutory Sex Offense with a Child, one felony count of Incest with a Child under the age of 13, and one felony count of Sex Act on a Minor by Substitute Parent/Custodian. The investigation and resulting charges stem from a

The BBB warns that the pandemic and potential supply chain shortage isn't stopping consumers from celebrating Halloween. The National Retail Federation expects people will spend $10.14 billion, up from $8.05 billion in 2020. Among Halloween celebrants, 66 percent plan to buy candy, 52 percent plan to purchase decorations, and 46 percent will get costumes. Those numbers can seem daunting for a single day, especially when watching the family budget, however, there are ways to keep the fun stylish and on budget. Better Business Bureau recommends the following tips this Halloween: Look around your home. Check your closet. There are hidden surprises to throw together a killer costume! Doing this will not only help save money but save space too. Rent a costume. If the idea of spending money on buying a costume isn't quite appealing because it will only be worn once, consider renting. Renting a costume leaves room in the budget, and it truly is only temporary. Research rental companies on BBB. org, check the store policy regarding trying on costumes, inspect the condition of the costume, and read the rental agreement

carefully before signing anything. Buy in bulk. It may seem counter-intuitive but buying more can save you money! Buying in bulk lessens the cost per item and per ounce. This can be especially handy on a night like Halloween when there might be more trickor-treaters out this year. Factory-wrapped candy will last even if not all of it is handed out. And let's be honest, leftovers are tasty even after Halloween. Always check the return policy. Seasonal shops carry unique items for a short period of time in a temporary location or online. When shopping this type of vendor, understand the store’s return policy before making a purchase. Find out how long the receipt must be kept, or what happens if the receipt is misplaced. This will help avoid mishaps like unwanted, broken, or faulty items being non-refundable. Remember: Buying a bunch of stuff with the intent of simply returning it after October 31 is considered fraud. Shop smart online. When shopping from an online website, the first step is to make sure the

URL starts with “https” and includes a lock symbol. The S in “https” stands for secure. Look up the website’s privacy policy and contact information. If it is not clearly listed, or they only have an email as the point of contact, take that as a big red flag and shop elsewhere. Also, be sure to use your credit card instead of your debit card, as credit cards not only provide additional protection, but it’s also easier to dispute a fraudulent charge. Seasonal stores. If you decide to shop from a seasonal store, ask whether they will be open after the holiday, how long they plan to stay open, and if they will accept returns after Halloween is over. If they plan to close shop November 1, or refuse returns after, either consider shopping elsewhere, or take more time to be sure that item is exactly what you want before making the purchase. More tips for seasonal “pop-up” stores: • Ask the owner if there is a website in case you must contact them later. • Save every receipt. • Use a credit card to dispute problem charges with the card’s issuer. • Make sure you are clear on what items are FINAL SALE. Attending a special event or visiting a

haunted house Before purchasing tickets, research the group offering the experience and make sure that there are no complaints about the company hosting the event. • Check out the company at BBB.org. Read what previous customers have to say and see how the business responds to complaints. • Check BBB Scam Tracker and see if other consumers have filed a report about the event host.
