Keep that stormwater flowing To help keep the city’s stormwater from having a negative effect on the quality of water flowing to downstream neighbors, and to help meet the mandates of the Federal Clean Water Act, the City of Kings Mountain Stormwater Department asks that all yard waste (grass, weeds, flowers, limbs, and leaves) be placed behind

the curb and out of gutters, ditches, or roadway for collection. Leaves and grass must be bagged and placed behind curb, except during Leaf Season which runs from Mid-October until Mid-February. They also ask that when cutting your grass, you do not blow grass onto street or in ditch

lines. If you use a lawn service, please advise them of these rules so that we can keep the stormwater system clear and prevent flooding conditions which can occur when catch basins and ditch lines are covered by debris. If violations are found, a door hanger will be placed at the resident’s home to make them aware of these rules. The city thanks you in advance for your cooperation in keeping the stormwater system clean.

OPINION

Wednesday, April 20, 2022

TODAY’S QUOTE:

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. –Abraham Lincoln

Pieces of Kings Mountain History Capt. W.T.R. Bell was an interesting resident of Kings Mountain during LORETTA the formative COZART years of our city. Capt. Bell founded a military academy on the site of Central School on Ridge Street. Other than that, I did not know much more about him, so I did more research. In a Google search, docsouth.unc.edu shared more information about the good captain, “Although a Virginia native who served as an officer in the Army of Northern Virginia, Bell moved to North Carolina shortly after the Civil War ended. He became well known across the state as an educator, newspaper man, member of the General Assembly and speaker at reunions of Confederate Veterans. “As an educator he served from one end of the state to the other, first in Carteret County, later as Principal of Kings Mountain High School and founded the military institute located at different times in Kings Mountain, Shelby and Rutherfordton. As a newspaper man he worked at papers in Kinston, Winston Salem and as editor of the Rutherford Sun.” From historical records, we know that Capt. Bell lived in Kings Mountain by May 1879. This is evidenced in a pamphlet at the Library of Congress online entitled “Battle at King’s Mountain, Proposed Centennial Celebration, October 7, 1880”. In it, I found the following passage. I have taken the liberty

of using the gentlemen’s full names when I knew them. “A meeting of the citizens of Kings Mountain and vicinity, on Saturday May 24th, 1879, to take the initiatory steps towards the celebration of the centennial of the battle of Kings Mountain. Dr. James Wright Tracy, was called to the chair; Isaac Walton Garrett and William Andrew Mauney were appointed secretaries.” Others noted in the meeting were Capt. William T. Reilley Bell, Dr. Benjamin Franklin Dixon, P.S. Baker, Dr. T.J. Walker, F.S. McGinnis, and R. S. Sugg.” Students in Capt. Bell’s Kings Mountain Military Academy wore gray uniforms with a black stripe down the trouser leg, according to KM Historian Bonnie Mauney Summers. During those early celebrations of the Battle of Kings Mountain, Dr. Bell’s students paraded throughout the day near Mountain and Tracy Streets. They were featured in subsequent celebrations until the military school closed. As best as I can determine, Kings Mountain Military Academy was in existence from 1876 until 1886. Shelby Military Institute opened its doors on September 12, 1887, under the joint management of principals W.T.R. Bell and Sidney Gidney, according to “Brief sketch of Shelby: a thriving town in the Piedmont section of North Carolina.” The description of the military academy noted, “Captain Bell was the founder of Kings Mountain High School and its principal for eleven years.” In an online history of Shelby High School,

it notes that by 1892, Shelby Graded School was housed in the former building of Shelby Military Institute, which Capt. Bell founded. Since Bell began another school in 1890, it is likely Shelby Military Institute closed prior to that date. In 1890, Capt. Bell opened his third school, according to “Chivalry and Honor: Rutherfordton Military Institute and Captain W.T.R. Bell,” written by Robin Spencer Lattimore. The book notes that Capt. Bell took a sabbatical from his work at the institute in the summer of 1893 to visit his son and namesake, William Terrill Reilley Bell, Jr. who lived in Waco, Texas, who was sick. His son died in his father’s arms on May 18, 1894, after accidentally taking morphine instead of Sulphonyl during a bronchial attack. Lattimore speculates that Bell, Jr. may have suffered from tuberculosis, and might have been the reason he was living in the warmer climate of Texas. After his son’s death, Capt. Bell continued to serve his country in the Spanish American War during 1898. At the website docsouth.unc.edu, it notes, “Although past the age limit, he (Capt. Bell) was still elected as Captain of Company B, 2nd NC Regiment, a volunteer company formed during the Spanish American War.” Captain W.T.R. Bell was born September 1, 1843, and he died May 31, 1917. His wife, Nannie Hill Bell survived him by eleven months. They are buried together in Rutherfordton Cemetery, in Rutherfordton, NC.

Rutherfordton Military Institute has a similar floor plan to Kings Mountain Military Academy, with longer wings and additional exits.

Moderation, balance and rigid flexibility Most doctors will encourage their patients to not overdrink alcohol. Glenn Mollette Too Guest Editorial much might cause you to fall and impairs an individual’s ability to make good decisions or drive an automobile. Going on a binge of anything may not be a positive decision. Giving up food for a day will make you sluggish and probably irritable. Eating a buffet usually brings regret. Going to the gym to work out for three hours will just zap you for the rest of the day. Working 29 days out of the month will make you more money but when will you be able to enjoy what you’ve earned? We need fruit and vegetables every day but you can overdo fiber.

There are lots of scenarios of too much. You can play too much, work too much, party too much, spend too much and even save too much. You can spend your life searching for love and being in and out of love. In the end, you are exhausted and drained. You can spend too much time in church and doing religious kinds of things. What good are you to the world and others if all you ever do is sit in church? Faith must be fleshed out and put into practice. The basketball team wants to do more than just practice seven days a week. The exhilaration comes in playing the game. You don’t want to spend your life reading about the ocean. You want to go and see and swim in the ocean. You don’t want to spend your life cooking in the kitchen. You would like to sit and savor some of the delicious food from the kitchen. Life is about participating as much as you can, when you can, and as you are able. We all have limitations but we hope and dream. The hopes and

dreams keep us going and trying. When we lose these it’s easy to give up. The cancer patient hopes for a cure and hangs on. Moderation is the key to most of life. Work some, play some, love some, help others some, cultivate your faith, friends, family and diversify your diet. Yes, include fruit and vegetables and some exercise. Watch some television and news but don’t live in front of the television. Most of the news is bad. The cable news channels and evening news are filled with the bad things of the day. Obviously bad news is what makes money. If you work 50 hours a week, then take stock of your blessing to have a job. Consider how you might do your work better and more effectively to help your employer and fulfill yourself. Give some thought to aiming for balance in your life. A balanced tire always rides better. When possible, practice moderation in all things and try to utilize rigid flexibility. An inflexible life will eventually break.

Composting: great way to prepare for spring planting Introduction to Home Composting Composting is an excellent way to recycle organic household and yard materials. The following information from the NC Cooperative Extension shows how easy and efficient composting can be. More than 25% of the typical household’s waste is yard trimmings and food scraps that can be composted. Composting is the controlled decomposition of organic materials into a soillike substance called compost. Organic materials, such as grass clippings, leaves, yard trimmings, food scraps, and non-recyclable paper products, can be composted at home in compost bins, piles, or worm bins. Home composting is an easy and economical way for individuals to convert their organic waste into a soil amendment that they can use to mulch landscaping, enhance plant growth, enrich topsoils, and provide other benefits to plants and soil. Compost benefits include: improves soil health & fertility, increases the nutrient content of soils, promotes higher yields of crops, brings & feeds diverse life in soils, makes soil easier to work with, increases soil porosity & moisture retention, suppresses plant diseases & pests, can reduce the need for fertilizers & pesticides,

encourages healthy root systems, helps regenerate poor soils, can prevent & manage soil erosion problems, reduces water demands of plants & trees. 4 Great Reasons to Compost Yard Waste It saves money – Converting your food scraps and yard trimmings to compost saves on buying soil amendments and fertilizers. Homeowners who discard yard waste are giving away their yards’ potential soil nutrients Saves time – Discarding to a compost pile is often faster than bagging and bundling sticks for streetside yard disposal. Reduces trash disposal – Your community will need less landfill space and incinerator capacity. Less pollution will be emitted by landfills and waste-hauling trucks It’s educational – Learning about composting and natural processes is interesting for people young or old. Children can learn to conserve natural resources through composting activities. It’s a great way to teach natural sciences. Simple tools to get you started… You can compost in a pile or in a bin that you have constructed or purchased. On the internet, you can find plans for making compost bins or sites that sell manufactured bins. Some communities sell composting bins at a subsi-

dized rate. Place your compost bin in a flat, open space that is easily accessible but not right next to your house. Keep areas in front of and above the bin clear so you can get to it easily. Placing it in a shady area is best so it won’t dry out as quickly. Siting your bin near gardens where you will use the compost is also a good idea. Composting tools list (suggested, not necessary) Thick work or gardening gloves, Digging fork with metal tines and reinforced handle, Aerator (resembles screw or butterfly clips), Watering can or hose, Containers or buckets, Screener, Flat shovel or tapered spade. Questions and Answers How do I compost? Two basic styles: Single Batch (materials are added only

once to form a pile) and Continuous Pile (add materials as they become available). When is compost ready to use? It takes about 3 to 6 months to produce finished compost using the Hot Pile Method. The Cold Pile Method will take about a year or longer. Compost is ready to use when it is dark brown, has a light and crumbly texture similar to potting soil, and has a pleasant, earthy scent. Are animals attracted to compost piles? Not if you manage the pile correctly. Don’t put meat, fish, dairy products, grease, oil, bloodmeal or bones in your compost bin. Cover kitchen scraps or vegetable garden trimmings with brown leaves or other carbon materials.

Spring is a season of rejuvenation, and that spirit of renewal can take hold inside a home. Warm weather and longer hours of daylight make spring a perfect time to imagine a home’s interior design in a new light. The following are a handful of decor ideas that may inspire homeowners to give their homes an entirely new look this spring. • Wallpaper: Wallpaper fell out of favor years ago, but new styles that aren’t so heavily patterned can make for wonderful additions to any room. Large-scale prints can give a room a whole new feel without giving homeowners or their guests the impression that they have stepped back in time. A simple, mural-style floral wallpaper on the walls surrounding a table in a breakfast nook can bring nature inside. • Pastel colors: Nothing embodies the spring quite like pastel colors. If colorful, bright flowers dot the garden in the backyard, homeowners can bring those uplifting pastels inside by painting an accent wall or even adding some brightly colored accent furniture to rooms that could use a lift. • Declutter: Clutter is often conquered during spring clean-

produce fewer flowers or may look sickly when the time has passed to divide them. Early spring often is a good time to divide perennials, advises The Farmer’s Almanac. A thick layer of mulch

can help perennials to overwinter successfully. Perennials planted in containers will need to be transplanted into the garden before it gets cold because most containers cannot thoroughly insulate pe-

Perennials can add color and vibrancy to any garden. One of the more desirable components of perennials is that they come back year after year, meaning homeowners do not have to invest in a gardenful of new flowers every year. That can add up to considerable savings. Perennials often form the foundation of beautiful gardens. Annuals only grow for one season, produce seeds and then die. However, perennials die back to the ground every autumn and their roots survive the winter. So the plants reemerge in the spring, according to The Farmer’s Almanac. Some perennials are short-lived, meaning they will come back a few consecutive years; others will last for decades. Though planted perennials require less maintenance than annuals, they are not

completely maintenance-free. Certain care is needed to help perennials thrive, and that starts with the soil. In fact, soil is the single most important factor for growing healthy plants. Penn State Extension says most perennials grow ideally in well drained, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0. In addition, organic matter can improve soil texture and water-holding ability. When including perennials in the garden, make sure you wait for the right time to plant them. The ideal time is during the spring or fall. Perennials come as container-grown pe-

rennials, which already have been established in the soil. Bare-root perennials are just roots that are often packed in peat moss. In order to plant bare-root perennials, soak the roots in water for several minutes before gently planting in the ground, indicates the how-to resource Tip Bulletin. Perennials should be watered deeply, especially during the first growing season. However, the soil should never be overly dry or wet. Most perennials do not need to be fertilized heavily. A single application in the spring typically is all that’s needed. Care along the way can include deadheading spent flowers so that plants can use their energy on seed production and reblooming. Perennials should be divided when they grow large, every three to four years when the plants are not in bloom. Perennials

ing sessions, but homeowners who want to create more free-flowing interior spaces can downsize their furniture and/or look for multipurpose features that make it hard for clutter to take over a room. Create more open space in entertaining areas by mounting the television and getting rid of a bulky entertainment center. Create even more space by replacing rarely used end tables with a storage ottoman where books and magazines can be stored to give a room a fresh, clean look. • Accent features: Sometimes the smallest changes to an interior space make the biggest impression. Replace dated accents like vases and table lamps with newer items that reflect the latest styles and trends. Such adjustments won’t break the bank, and they can give rooms a whole new feel. Spring is a great time to reconsider home interiors. This spring homeowners can embrace various strategies, both big and small, to give their homes a whole new feel. rennial roots. Apart from these strategies, perennials pretty much take care of themselves. As long as sunlight requirements match plant needs, the perennials should thrive.

Spring

Budget-friendly ways to upgrade a landscape An inviting, well-tended landscape can add significant curb appeal to a home. Such a landscape also can serve as a point of pride and welcome homeowners each evening as they arrive home from work. Landscaping projects run the gamut from simple changes that can be accomplished on a weekend afternoon to more significant and costly undertakings that require the work of a professional. Budget-conscious homeowners may be looking for simpler projects, and the following are some less costly ways to upgrade a landscape. • Add a pop of color with planters. Awe-inspiring colors can make a landscape stand out from surrounding properties. Flowers, bushes and plants may be the first thing homeowners consider when trying to add color to their lawns, but planters can provide a more immediate way to give exterior grounds some color. Bold planters won’t lose their color in a matter of weeks like many

flowers do, and homeowners can switch planters so the colors align with the season. For example, some pastel planters can evoke the spirit of spring, while orange planters can be filled with mums to give a landscape an autumnal feel. • Plant perennials around the property. Well-maintained perennials grow back each year, making them ideal for homeowners who don’t have the time or desire to map out new gardening arrangements each spring. Planting perennials also is a great way to add color

around the property without breaking the bank. • Upgrade walkways. Though it’s more expensive than adding planters and planting perennials, upgrading old and cracked walkways is a great way to give a property a whole new look. According to the renovation experts at HomeAdvisor, homeowners typically pay between $6 and $12 per square foot for new concrete walkway installation. Homeowners working on a budget can target spots where walkways have already cracked and fix those areas first be-

fore continuing the project piecemeal until all the old walkways have been replaced. • Plant to create privacy. Homeowners spent more time at home than ever before during the pandemic, and some might have grown tired of seeing what their neighbors are up to. Fencing might be the first solution homeowners consider when looking to make their landscapes more private. But new fencing installation can be expensive, costing homeowners between $1,667 and $4,075 on average, according to BobVila.com. A more costly and natural solution is to plant trees around the perimeter. Speak with a local landscaping professional, who can survey the property to see which trees might thrive and provide the privacy homeowners want. Creating an inviting landscape doesn’t have to break the bank. Various small and relatively inexpensive projects can change the look and feel of a home’s exterior.

Are backyard chickens right for you?

formula. Chickens also can help control bugs around the yard, offers the experts at Tractor Supply Company. Before investing in backyard chickens, people should determine if chickens will fit with their lifestyle. Costs and care are a big consideration. Each chick will cost anywhere between $3 to $5 a bird. Then there’s feed to consider.

The most expensive item will likely be the coop. The experts at The Happy Chicken Coop, a resource for raising chickens and starting coops, says handy men and women can build homemade coops, but ready-made ones will cost a few hundred dollars. The coop will need to offer around four square feet of space per chicken (or what’s recommended for the breed). Despite being seemingly independent birds, chickens need people to be active caregivers. They require feed and water daily. The chickens will need a caregiver while you vacation. People who are frequently away from home should reconsider chickens. Chickens also are prone to worms, parasites and lice. They need to have rear feathers trimmed to stay clean and sanitary, and they will require an area where they can “dust” and

self-groom. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises not to cuddle and kiss chickens like pets because they can carry salmonella. Not every coop is completely varmint-proof, and some chickens may succumb to predators. Squeamish or sentimental folks may find chickens aren’t the right fit. Chickens require commitment and care that many people can provide. It is essential to do one’s homework to ensure that backyard chickens are a sound investment.

The right tool for the job is essential to working safely and efficiently. This is as true in the workplace as it is in the garden. Novice gardeners may not know where to begin in regards to which tools they need. The following are eight items that can serve as a solid foundation for beginning gardeners. 1. Gloves: Your hands will be working hard, so it pays to protect them from calluses, blisters, splinters, insects, and dirt. Look for water-resistant gloves that are also breathable. 2. Hand pruners: Hand pruners are essential for cutting branches, cleaning up shrubs, dead-heading flowers, and various other tasks. Choose ergonomic, no-slip handles that will make work easier. Rust-resistant, nonstick blades also are handy. 3. Wheelbarrow: A wheelbarrow can transport gear to garden beds or tote dirt, leaves, rocks, and other materials around the landscape. A good wheelbarrow is strong but light enough to maneuver when full. 4. Loppers: Long-handled loppers will fit the bill for thick branches. The long handles provide leverage to cut through branches an inch or more in diameter. 5. Hand trowel: A hand trowel is a handy tool that lets you dig holes or unearth weeds. While shop-

ping for a trowel, consider getting a hand-held garden fork, which can aerate soil and cut through roots. 6. Hose/watering can: Keeping gardens hydrated is part of ensuring their health. That makes a hose and a watering can two invaluable tools to have around. Invest in a lightweight, expandable hose if storage space is at a premium. An adjustable nozzle will enable you to customize the water flow as needed. A watering can is an easy way to tote water to hard-to-reach pots and containers. 7. Garden kneeler: Gardeners often bend and kneel while working in the soil. That puts pressure on the back and knees. A comfortable garden kneeler with memory foam or one made from shock-absorbing material can reduce aches and pains. 8. Garden hoe: Garden hoes till soil, remove weeds and perform many other tasks. A garden hoe can be used along with a full-sized shovel, trowel and garden rake. This list is just the tip of the garden tool iceberg. Visit a garden center and speak with a professional about other tools that can be added to the mix.

Raising backyard chickens has been a growing phenomenon for several years. Many cities have passed laws legalizing backyard chickens, encouraging many to raise chickens as a rewarding hobby. One of the biggest benefits to raising backyard chickens is that their eggs are fresher and often tastier than store-bought varieties. Hens can lay one egg per day. Multiply that egg per hen, and breakfast is always available. Another benefit to chickens is they produce a natural fertilizer that can be used in gardens. “The Old Farmer’s Almanac” says chicken manure can be composted, aged and eventually added to the garden. In about six months, a person will accumulate about one cubic foot of manure per chicken. Egg shells and other compostable material can be added to create an even richer

Consider these reathe historical fact that God sons: raised up Jesus. Peter deFirst, God declared clared on Pentecost—“This Jesus to be His Son. The

Jews sought to kill Jesus for “calling God His own Father” (Jn 5:18). But Jesus “was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead” (Rom 1:4). Second, God vanquished death and granted life forever to His Son. Speaking of Christ, Paul says, “Christ, having been

raised from the dead, is never to die again” (Rom 6:9). In the Revelation, John saw Jesus and heard Him say, “I am . . . the living One; and I was dead and behold, I am alive forevermore” (Rev 1:17–18). David had prophesied years earlier: “You will not allow Your Holy One to undergo decay” (Ps 16:10). Third, Jesus now gives life to whomever He wishes. Jesus said, “For just as the Father raises the dead and give them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom He wishes” (Jn 5:21). Jesus now gives life to whoever believes. For Jesus also said, “I am

the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies” (Jn 11:25). Every true Christian believes in the resurrection of Christ. Every true Christian not only confesses “Jesus is Lord,” but also believes “God raised Him from the dead.” And every true Christian holds dear this promise for all who confess and believe—“you will be saved” (Rom 10:9). Have you been saved? Have you confessed that Jesus is Lord? Have you believed in this One who died for sins and whom God raised to life? Call on His name and

1950 National Census released pressed his own excitement and personal interest in this records release. “While the Decennial Census is constitutionally used to determine congressional apportionment to states, the completed forms can give us a unique peek into our nation's past to the delight of historians, genealogists and to all of us—the public. So, thanks to all those people who participated in the 1950 Census, we can follow the movement of people across the country and gain a glimpse into how they lived through the National Archives release,” remarked Santos. “As for me, I'm looking to see the form submitted at the house where my abuelita, my grandmother, lived on Parsons Street in San Antonio with my parents, my aunts, and my uncles. I'd love to compare the 1940 and the 1950 Census forms for that address to see how the family finally dispersed.” The 1950 population census is the 17th decennial census of the United States.

For the online release of the 1950 census, the National Archives digitized more than 6.4 million pages of census schedules for U.S. states and territories, enumeration district maps, and enumeration district descriptions. By law, the information on individuals in the decennial censuses, which are mandated by the U.S. Constitution, is restricted from public release for 72 years. The National Archives maintains and provides access to the permanently valuable records of our government, including census records. Outlined as mandated by Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution, and taken every 10 years since 1790, the census helps define “We the People" by providing a snapshot of the nation’s population. It is a once-a-decade population and housing count of

everyone living in the United States. These records provide genealogists, historians, researchers, demographers, sociologists, political scientists, and the public an opportunity to research family and community histories alongside our nation’s history. While the original intent of the census was to determine how many representatives each state was entitled to send to the U.S. Congress, it has become a vital tool for federal agencies in determining allocation of federal funds and resources. Access to the digitized records, along with many helpful contextual documents, frequently asked questions, articles, blog posts, and a video celebration featuring notable guest speakers, are found on the National Archives 1950 Census page.

The National Archives and Records Administration released the population records of the 1950 Census on April 1. Anyone, anywhere, can now freely access these records online as well as contribute updates to the draft name index, which will be forever associated with the archival record of these documents. “I am grateful to the staff of the National Archives for their dedication in preserving and providing access to this important set of records,” said Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero. “Because of their years of efforts, you can now research the 1950 Census. I personally can’t wait to look up my own family in Beverly, Massachusetts. This is the first census in which I am recorded. The census is full of family stories, and we know you are eager to look for yours. We hope you have a wonderful time researching in the 1950 Census records.” Robert Santos, Director of the U.S. Census Bureau, ex-

BGCCC to expand programs across county The Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County (BGCCC) is expanding once again, offering programs at Springmore Elementary, Fallston Elementary, the renamed Shelby Elementary and at a new site in the Kings Mountain school zone, beginning in fall 2022. “When we heard earlier this year that Graham and Marion Elementary schools were going to be closed and that schoolsponsored after-school programming would end on June 3, 2022, we immediately started working with school administrators to ensure that every child will continue to have options for after-school enrichment activities,” says Joshua Propst, BGCCC executive director. School officials and local organizations came together in an agreement that the school system would work through existing community partnerships – such as BGCCC, Communities in Schools, YMCA, churches, and other nonprofits – to offer these services. “After determining the zones with the most need, Boys & Girls Clubs agreed to expand operations by opening those additional program sites to absorb as many students as possible who will be affected by these changes,” says Propst. As a preferred community partner, the BGCCC already shares program space at four school sites: Turning Point Academy, Graham Elementary, Casar Elementary and North Elementary.

“Students from Township #3 Elementary and Boiling Springs Elementary will be bused to nearby program sites,” says Propst. “A small teen center in Lawndale is also planned through a partnership with Hope Community Church.” BGCCC provides all students in its programs with a daily healthy meal or snack, homework assistance, and the chance to participate in structured activities such as STEM, art, music, sports, nutrition and computers, according to Propst. The staff-to-student ratio is maintained at 1/15 or better. “Safety is our number one priority, and all staff and volunteers undergo a rigorous criminal background check prior to working with children,” he says. The fee for students to attend any new BGCCC program will be set at $15 per week during the school year and $30 per week in the summer. “Our goal is providing an affordable afterschool option for all students in the county, regardless of where they live or go to school,” says Propst. Pre-registration for upcoming programs is scheduled to begin soon. “This is an exciting time of growth and opportunity for the Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland County that produces ‘wins’ for practically everyone involved, especially the children. Our programs produce the results we all want to see in our kids,” says Propst. Dr. Kim Greene, principal at Fallston Elementary School, agrees: “I am thrilled to have the Boys & Girls Club come to Fallston

Elementary for our afterschool program. This provides much-needed support for our families in the area of safe and affordable after-school care on our school campus,” she says. “I am excited for our students who will have opportunities to complete homework with support and experience a variety of enrichment activities while waiting for their families to pick them up after work.” For more information about the after-school programs or about the BGCCC in general, visit www.bgccleveco.org, search for “bgccleveco” on Facebook or call (704) 4712582.

tawba Two Kings Casino,” said Melodie McSwain, executive director for the Mental Health Association of Cleveland County. “As a small organization, this donation will go a long way toward helping us accomplish our mission of helping individuals and families facing mental health challenges in Cleveland County.” Children’s Homes of Cleveland County is a human services agency that began in 1969 as a shelter home serving homeless youth. It has evolved to include two group homes, an outpatient therapy clinic, adoption services,

parenting and coparenting classes, supervised family and sibling visitation, and independent living readiness. It also offers residential options for youth aging out of the foster care system. All programs and services are trauma-informed and evidence-based and are available to the community at large. “We are so grateful for the support of Catawba Two Kings Casino and their patrons,” said Peter Bagley, executive director of Children’s Homes of Cleveland County. “The generosity is helping to meet the daily needs of abused and neglected

children, in addition to supporting and restoring families, to helping kids find new forever homes, to helping people of all ages with their mental health needs. It will help young people successfully transition from foster care to full independence and is the kind of collaboration that makes Cleveland County such a great place to be.” The casino launched the Share Change program several weeks after its July opening, and new charitable recipients are designated every three months. The program has now raised $27,000 for local organizations.

KM sweeps Cramer, alone in first in BSC Kings Mountain High’s baseball team went into spring break in first place in the Big South Conference after sweeping Stuart Cramer 6-2 Tuesday in Cramerton and 7-0 Wednesday in Kings Mountain. The Mountaineers, now 9-1 in the conference, went into their final pre-Easter game tied with Crest for first place but the Chargers fell to Forestview 2-1 to drop into second place with an 8-2 mark. Both teams are playing in the annual Shelby Easter

tournament this week and will end the regular season this week and next. Kings Mountain was scheduled to go to Ashbrook last night and will host the Green Wave Friday at 7 p.m. The regular season championship could go down to the final two games of the season when the Mountaineers travel to Crest on May 3 and host the Chargers on May 6. State playoffs will begin on May 10. Kings Mountain got good pitching performances from

aces Zane Brockman and Charlie Melton in last week’s victories over Stuart Cramer. Brockman went six strong innings and had the 7-0 lead before reaching the pitch limit and leaving the mound in Tuesday’s road win. He gave up only one hit and struck out 11. Hunter Ellis had a big night at the plate for the Mountaineers, going 3-for-4 with a double and RBI. Kenyon Moore had a single and RBI, Maddox Brown a single and RBI and Jackson Toney

a hit. The Storm was in trouble from the beginning Wednesday at Lancaster Field. With runners on first and second with just one out in the bottom of the first, the visitors were able to pull an inning-ending double play. But with Charlie Melton fanning the side in the top of the first two innings, the Mountaineers got going on offense and scored twice in the bottom of the second to nail down the victory early. Ellis ripped a single to left to get

things going. After a walk and wild pitch got him to third, he scored on a grounder by Ethan Guy and Irby later came home on a wild pitch. The offense kept things going in the third, scoring three more runs to go up 5-0. Moore’s single to left got things going. After Brockman walked Moore scored on a wild pitch to make it 3-0. Brown walked and Ellis singled to right to make it 4-0. After Cramer made a pitching change, Irby hit a sacrifice fly to left to make it 5-0.

The Mountaineers added their final two runs in the fourth. Toney walked, Moore singled to center and Hamrick walked to load the bases. Brockman’s sacrifice fly to left brought home the sixth run, and Brown’s groundout to second produced the final tally. Melton and relief ace Wyatt Davis finished with 16 strikeouts. Melton fanned 13 and gave up just three hits over the first six innings. Davis didn’t give up a hit and struck out three in the seventh.

KM men’s track county champs

Mountaineers 13-4 winners at Blacksburg

Kings Mountain High’s men’s track team won the annual Cleveland County championship Wednesday at John Gamble Stadium. The Mountaineers compiled 104 points to defeat Burns with 84, Shelby 65 and Crest 18. The Mountaineers had two triple medalists and two double medalists. Parker Key’s triple included a 4.56 in the mile, 11.32 in the two-mile and the anchor leg of the winning 4x800 relay team which included Hunter Cruise, Max Thompson and Isiah Watts. Andre Willis was also a triple medalist with a 15.83 in the 110 high hurdles, 43.29 in the 300 hurdles and part of the winning 4x200 relay team. Dwayne Black was a double medalist with a 22.85 in the 200 meter run and a part of the 4x200 relay with Jeramaine Thurman and Zavion Smith. See TRACK, Page 3B

Kings Mountain sent 13 batters to the plate in the top of the sixth inning to score seven runs and break open a 4-4 tie and defeat Blacksburg 13-4 in a non-conference game last week in Blacksburg, SC. The Mountaineers had five of their 11 hits during that inning and also took advantage of two walks, two Blacksburg errors and a hit batsman. Jacob Hamrick got the rally going when he reached on an error by the Blacksburg shortstop. Zane Brockman followed with the first of his two sharp singles to right during the rally and the Wildcats called Kolby Capps to the mound. He issued a walk to Brayden Patrick to load the sacks and Maddox Brown ripped a two-run single to center for a 6-4 lead that would turn out to be the winning runs. After Charlie Melton was hit by a

KMMS tennis beats RS, finishes with 4-2 record Kings Mountain Middle School’s tennis team shutout RS Central 9-0 last week to end its first season under new head coach Ed Guy with a 4-2 record. The Patriots had good singles play from Katherine Frye, Seanna Simon, Elizabeth Bolt, Kayla McSwain, Jasmyn Adams and Jacob Baker as they clinched the victory early. The Patriots finished third in the Tri-County Conference.

“We had a great group of young people who worked hard to improve,” said Guy. “I see continued growth for next year from our beginning players. We will miss our eighth grade players including Katherine Frye, Elizabeth Bolt, Kayla McSwain, Jacob Baker, Jasmyn Accor, Olivia Deloera, Raylee Clark, Caroline Pyne and Sadie Mauney. These players will give the Kings Mountain High teams additional help

for next year. “I would like to thank the parents of all of our student athletes for their support this year,” Guy said. “They all pitched in to give the team and families a great end of the season cookout. I would like to give our thanks to the administration, staff and Jason Bridges of KMMS and KMIS for their help and support. Thanks to the Kings Mountain Touchdown Club for their support.

pitched ball the sacks were full again, and Hunter Ellis drew a walk to make it 7-4. After another pitching change, Moore ripped a double which was booted in center field and Hamrick singled to left and all of a sudden it was 11-4. The Mountaineers added their final two runs in the top of the seventh. With one out, Wyatt Davis drew a base on balls, Ellis got an infield hit and they moved to second and third on a wild pitch and scored on a single to left by Ethan Guy. Blacksburg used six pitchers who combined for 12 walks. Their starter, Lucas Earls, pitched three strong innings giving up just one run and two hits and left with a 4-1 lead.

Dixon’s homer sparks KM over Forestview Austyn Dixon’s twostrike, two-run homer on a 3-2 count in the top of the fifth inning erased a 4-3 deficit and gave the Kings Mountain High’s women’s softball team the lead for good in an 8-4 victory over Forestview Wednesday. Dixon went 4-for-4 to lead the KM plate attack. She singled in the first and third innings, and after her fifth inning home run she singled again in the sixth.

She went seven innings, allowing five hits while striking out six and walking none. Upton was in the circle for Forestview. She went the distance and registered eight strikeouts. Andrea Melton also homered for the KM ladies,

Cleveland Community College Brings Big Return on Investment for Regional Economy

College represents $210.3M Annual Economic Impact on local area

Hunter Griffin - 3rd Place - 1st Grade Male - 1/2 mile

A new, in-depth economic impact analysis found Cleveland Community College has a $210.3 million annual impact on the regional economy - supporting more than 2,922 jobs. Perhaps the greatest impact shown by the study is that of CCC’s alumni. The thousands of graduates trained at CCC, who are now working within the region

generated $184.3 million. “Cleveland Community College plays an important role in the economic health of our county and region,” said Dr. Jason Hurst, CCC president. “There are some big numbers in this study, but it’s much more than that. These numbers represent people;

people whose lives the College has helped change. We are committed to strengthening our community by helping our students create better futures for themselves and their families.” The report also assesses the economic impact of five CCC programs on the area economy, the return on investment for students, and the benefits generated for N.C.

The high-demand career pathways quantified in the report include jobs and programs related to Electrical Lineworker Academy, Associate Degree Nursing, Basic Law Enforcement Training, Welding and Medical Assisting. Copies of CCC’s economic impact studies, fact sheets, and summaries can be found online at https://bigroifornc.org/cleveland/. With support from the North Carolina General Assembly, leaders from the N.C. Association of Community College Presidents, the N.C. Community College System Office, the Center for Applied Research, N.C. State’s Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research, and the John M. Belk Endowment formed to collaborate with national research leader Emsi Burning Glass to produce a regional Economic Impact Study for each of the state’s 58 community colleges, as well as an overall statewide report. The studies found that each of North Carolina’s community colleges pump millions of dollars into the regions they serve - creating jobs, wealth, and opportunities for local residents. North Carolina’s 58 community colleges represent a combined $19 billion in annual impact on the state’s economy and support one out of every 19 jobs in the state. “The return on investment in our community colleges is unmatched - not only for students and parents, but taxpayers and our entire state economy,” said N.C. Community College System President Thomas Stith. “We are proud of the contributions of our graduates and employees to enhance and strengthen our North Carolina communities.” The economic impact study found for every dollar the state invests in North Carolina’s Community Colleges, the state gains $7.50 in added See CCC, Page 6B

Spring Carnival draws a huge crowd to YMCA By Loretta Cozart Planners feared the weather was not going to cooperate for the city’s annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 16 in Kings Mountain. But where there is a will, God makes a way. King City Church and Big Red’s Cafe partnered with City of Kings Mountain to sponsor a Spring Carnival filled with Special Needs accessible activities in the YMCA gym. The event included inflatables, music, food, sensory activities, pony rides, and free food and treats for children and their families. Wendell the Easter Bunny was also on hand for hugs and photos. Around 11 a.m., the rain stopped, the skies cleared, and outdoor activities began. Activities included a petting zoo, compliments of Son Ridge Farms, pony rides, along with vendors offering free snow cones, popcorn, and cotton candy. Battleground Commu-

nity Church provided free hotdogs and local businesses like, Child Care Connections, Cleveland County Partnership for Children, Kings Mountain YMCA, and Scoop Kings Mountain offered activities for participants. Mayor Neisler said, “I give Nakisha Wenzel so much credit for all she did pulling this together. This was just such a great event; the kids had a fun time. And everything was free! I cannot thank her enough for all she did for the children of Kings Mountain!” Nakisha kept the event rolling, announcing that the Easter Egg Hunt was about to begin and counting the children down. Easter eggs filled the gym, on the floor, on the tables, and in bins around the room. Children rushed around, gathering as many eggs as their little hands and baskets could hold. Older children helped the younger ones to make sure everyone got eggs filled with candy.

CCC From Page 3B incomes and social savings. The colleges generate nearly double the revenue from what they take in from the taxpayers. For every $1 the state invests, taxpayers get $1.90 back in added tax revenues and public sector savings. “We’re pleased the reports so clearly quantify and demonstrate the major economic impact North Caroli-

na’s 58 community colleges, faculty, students, and alumni have in each of their respective areas,“ said Dr. Mark Poarch, president of Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, and the current President of the N.C. Association of Community College Presidents. “Our colleges offer a big return on investment for students and employers, policymakers and taxpayers. We are grateful for the continued confidence in what we do and for continued commitment to making smart investments in our

state.” “It’s been a privilege to have worked and supported our education partners on this study from the beginning as I was confident the results would blow us away. And it did. I think it’s fair to say not many government funded programs generate more revenue than they take in from taxpayers,” said State Senator Deanna Ballard, chair of the Senate Education Committee. “It’s critical that our high school graduates and adults looking to gain new skills take advantage of the

incredible opportunities that their local community college provides.” Community college graduates have higher incomes that contribute to a larger tax base and a growing state. Students who graduate with an associate degree from a N.C. community college will see an increase in earnings of up to $7,000 or more each year compared to a person with a high school diploma or equivalent. If the student builds upon their associate degree to then earn a bachelor’s degree, their annual

Wednesday, April 20, 2022 income also doubles on average. “Our community colleges are among the state’s most critical assets to leverage and accelerate the education and upskilling of our State’s homegrown talent,” said MC Belk Pilon, president and board chair of the John M. Belk Endowment. “As we look ahead, we must continue and accelerate investments in our 58 community colleges to ensure we increase access to economic

mobility, prepare North Carolinians for the jobs of today and tomorrow, and further grow local and state economies.” More information about the statewide economic impact studies can be found at BigROIforNC.org including the state report, as well as reports, fact sheets, and summaries for each of North Carolina’s 58 community colleges.

The CDC also recommends a third dose of Pfizer for children 5 to 11 who have compromised immune systems. Children and teens ages 12 and up can only receive the Pfizer booster, and parental consent is required.

Adults 18 or older can get any brand. You can now get a second booster if: • You are 50 or older and got your first booster shot at least FOUR months ago, or • You are 12 or older and have a compromised im-

mune system, and got your first booster at least FOUR months ago, or • You received a total of two shots of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least four months ago. Getting a second booster may be especially important

for people over the age of 65 and those older than 50 with underlying health conditions that put them at high risk of severe disease. Get a booster anywhere COVID-19 vaccines are available. Booster doses See BOOSTER, Page 9B

BBB Scam Alert: Home Improvement scammers take money, don’t complete work Use caution when hiring a home improvement contractor, especially following a major storm, flood, or other weather event when many homeowners are trying to repair their homes. However, contractor scams can happen any time, so be wary of high-pressure sales tactics, upfront fees, and fly-by-night businesses. Con artists will take homeowners’ money and deliver (or not deliver) less than quality work. How the Scam Works: Home improvement scams can start with a knock on the door, a flyer, or an ad. The contractor may offer a low price or a short timeframe. One common hook is when the scammer claims to be working in your neighborhood on another project and has leftover supplies. Once started, a rogue contractor may “find” issues that significantly raise the price. If you object, they threaten to walk away and leave a half-finished project. Or they may accept your upfront deposit and then never return to do the job. Following a natural disaster, scammers persuade homeowners to sign over their insurance payment. Tips to Spot This Scam:

• Watch out for “red flags.” Say no to cash-only deals, high-pressure sales tactics, high upfront payments, handshake deals without a contract, and on-site inspections. Not all “storm chasers” are con artists, but enough are that you should be cautious any time a home contractor contacts you first … especially after a natural disaster. • Ask for references and check them out. Bad contractors will be reluctant to share this information and scammers won’t wait for you to do your homework. If you can, get references from past customers, both older references to check on the quality of the work and newer references to make sure current employees are up to the task. Check them out at BBB. org to see what other customers have experienced. And always be sure to get a written contract with the price, materials, and timeline. The more detail, the better. • Know the law. Work with local businesses that have proper identification, licensing, and insurance. Confirm that your vendor will get related permits and make sure you know who is responsible for what according to your local laws and that your vendor is ready to comply.

North Elementary raises $6,519.36 in Kids Heart Challenge By Anna Hughes North Elementary School students raised money for the Kids Heart Challenge. PE Teacher Tyler McDaniel challenged the students to pass their goal of $3,000. To sweeten the pot, he promised the kids he would shave his beard if they passed their goal. They raised $6,519.36! Students chanted, "Shave it Off" as the school mascot, Paws started shaving off the beard. Teachers and Principal Amy Allen also got in on the action. The top three students that raised money were: Levi Desha, $1,322.96. Harmony Tucker, $1,166.00. John, $607.54. We are very proud of our North Tigers and their willingness to help others! Levi was absent for the beard shave.

A Common Heart Problem That’s Often Ignored Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about atrial fibrillation? Every so often, I’ve noticed my heart starts beating rapidly for no particular reason. Is this something I should be worried about? Anxious Annie

Dear Annie, Heart palpitations can be harmless if they are brief and infrequent. But if you’re experiencing an erratic heart rhythm, you need to get checked out by a doctor for atrial fibrillation, or AFib. AFib – which is marked by rapid, fluttering beats – can lead to serious complications such as stroke and heart failure, when the weakened heart can’t pump enough blood to the rest of the body. Normally, your heartbeat follows a steady rhythm as your heart contracts and relaxes. But when you have AFib, the upper chambers of your heart (atria) beat rapidly and irregularly, sending blood to the lower chambers (ventricles) less efficiently. These episodes can last for minutes to hours

or longer, and can cause palpitations, lightheadedness, fatigue, and/or shortness of breath. Over time, AFib tends to become chronic. Age is a common risk factor for AFib, which affects roughly 10 percent of people older than 75. Other factors include genetics, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and alcohol and tobacco use. The condition has also been linked to viral infections, including COVID-19.

decade as the population ages and risk factors like obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure become even more common. The lifetime risk of developing AFib is greater than 20 percent, yet many people don’t even know they have it.

Treatment Options A growing body of research underscores the importance of lifestyle steps such as exercise, a healthy diet, and limiting alcohol for treating AFib.

Diagnosing AFib If you’re experiencing AFib-like symptoms you need to see your doctor who will listen to your heart and likely recommend an electrocardiogram (EKG) or a treadmill heart test, or you may wear a portable monitor for several weeks to look for abnormal heart rhythms to confirm a diagnosis of AFib. Such tests can help distinguish AFib from less serious conditions that may cause the heart to flutter, like anxiety and stress.

Depending on your age and symptoms, your doctor may prescribe drugs to help control your heart rate, like beta blockers such as metoprolol (Toprol XL); and/or rhythm, such as antiarrhythmics like flecainide (Tambocor).

AFib affects some three million adults in the United States, a number that is expected to quadruple in the coming

Catheter ablation is another outpatient treatment for AFib that scars a small area of heart tissue that causes

You may also need an electrical cardioversion, an outpatient procedure that delivers an electrical shock to the heart to restore a normal rhythm. You will be sedated for this brief procedure and not feel the shocks.

irregular heartbeats. This procedure is becoming more common based on evidence of its safety and ability to normalize the heart rhythm and ease symptoms. Ablations can be effective in people 75 and older, but medication may still be required afterward. If you’re at higher risk for stroke, you may be prescribed a blood thinner, too. In the past, Coumadin (warfarin) was the only such drug widely available, but it requires monitoring with regular blood tests. Newer anticoagulants, like apixaban (Eliquis) and rivaroxaban (Xarelto), don’t have that requirement and have been shown to be just as effective at preventing strokes.
