American Legion to honor graves of Veterans May 23

Join us for the fifth year as the American Legion family of organizations flags the graves of veterans at Shelby City cemeteries on Thursday, May 23, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Sunset and Webb Memorial Cemeteries.

Over the years, over 1,390 veterans’ graves have been identified in the two cemeteries honoring veterans who served from the American Revolutionary War to the present day. Memorial Day is a national day to honor those veterans who have died by placing a flag on their graves.

This tradition started in America after the Civil War. Sunset Cemetery has nine grave markers for Civil War unknown soldiers, four Confederate soldiers, and five Union soldiers. They will be honored during the ceremonies.

Jean Lankford, Shelby American Legion Auxiliary member, stands beside the grave marker of Warren F. Hoyle, a Marine in WWI, who the Shelby American Legion Post 82 is named in his

The community has supported the Sons of the American (SAL) Legion Squadron #82 and the other American Legion organizations each year. Boy Scout troops, student-athletes from Shelby High School, Masonic Lodge members, Shelby Rotary, American

Legion Baseball team players, and community volunteers help flag the graves and learn about those who served our nation.

Zach Parker, SAL Squadron #82 Commander, explained that this was the first project the Squadron adopted when it was formed in November 2019. “In April 2020, members of the American Legion Post, the Auxiliary, and SAL Squadron walked the two cemeteries to identify where veterans were buried, since then we have had families approach us and tell us that there was a veteran in their family, and they would like us to place a flag on their relatives grave.”

For families whose veteran’s grave is not

marked with a military service plaque, extra flags are placed at the entrance at Sunset and Webb Cemeteries for the family to place on their loved one’s grave. A few days before flagging

the graves, members of SAL Squadron 82 divide the flags into groups so that each section of the two cemeteries will have flags for volunteers to place on the graves. See LEGION, Page 3

Volunteers may join the American Legion groups at Sunset Cemetery, Sumter St., Shelby on Thursday, May 23 at 5:30 pm. There will be a brief ceremony, a rifle salute, and taps played by the Post #82 Color Guard and Rifle Squad. Following the ceremony, volunteers will be divided into nine teams who will place flags on the graves of over 850 veterans at Sunset Cemetery.

Jimmy Sherman, Commander of Warren F. Hoyle American Legion Post 82, Shelby, shared, “Placing the flag on a veteran’s grave is an act of respect and honor for one who served their country.”

As part of the ceremony, participants are asked to step back from the marker when they place the flag on the veteran’s grave, read the individual’s name, branch of service, and years of service, and then say a prayer of thank you for your service.

Volunteers will be divided into three groups at Webb Memorial Cemetery, Eaves Road to place flags on over 340 veterans’ graves. At 6:30 p.m., the

ceremony honoring our veterans will be repeated at Webb Memorial with the rifle salute and playing of taps.

If you are interested in helping to flag veterans’ graves on Thursday, May 23, come to either Sunset or Webb Cemetery at 5:30 p.m. You will be assigned

to a group to place flags on the graves. If you have questions, please contact Dr. Jack Weller, SAL Squadron 82 Adjutant, at 704-473-5282.

Help the American Legion family of organizations remember and honor all who served their countr y this Memorial Day

Meatballs: In bowl, combine the ground beef and oats. Pour in milk and then add the onions, salt

and pepper. Stir to combine. Roll the mixture into tablespoon-sized balls and refrigerate for 30-35 minutes to firm. Preheat oven to 350º. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dredge the meatballs in flour, then brown in batches until lightly browned. Place meatballs into a rectangular baking dish as they brown. Sauce: Stir together ketchup, onions, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Drizzle over meatballs and bake until hot and bubbly, about 45 minutes.

Creating a magical garden in the southeastern United States, where the vibrant colors of hummingbirds dancing among the flowers is delightful to watch. Here are some native plants from the southeastern region that are known to attract these beautiful and industrious creatures:

• Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans): This vine produces bright orange or red trumpet-shaped flowers that hummingbirds love. It’s a vigorous grower, so ensure it has enough space to spread out.

• Coral Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens): This native vine produces tubular red or orange flower clusters that hummingbirds adore. It’s a great choice for trellises or fences.

• Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis): The cardinal flower, with its striking red blooms, is a favorite among hummingbirds. It thrives in moist, partly shaded areas, making it perfect for gardens with those conditions.

• Bee Balm (Monarda): Bee balm, also known as bergamot, produces clusters of tubular flowers in shades of red, pink, purple, or white. It’s a hardy perennial that attracts both hummingbirds and bees.

• Scarlet Sage (Salvia coccinea): This native wildflower features bright red tubular flowers that hummingbirds find irresistible. It’s easy to grow and thrives in full sun to partial shade.

• Red Buckeye (Aesculus pavia): The red buckeye produces showy red flowers that hummingbirds love. It’s a small tree or large shrub well-suited for woodland gardens.

• Firebush (Hamelia patens): Firebush produces clusters of red-orange tubular flowers that hummingbirds flock to. It’s a versatile plant that can be grown as a shrub or pruned into a small tree.

• Columbine (Aquilegia): Columbines produce delicate, bell-shaped flowers in various colors, including shades of red, pink, purple, and yellow. They attract hummingbirds with their nectar-rich blooms.

• Crossvine (Bignonia capreolata): Crossvine is a native vine that produces clusters of trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of red, orange, or yellow. It’s a vigorous grower that hummingbirds love to visit.

• Salvia (Salvia officinalis): Salvia can be planted in the center or back of your garden, growing 3 to 4 feet tall. The shorter red Sylvia is good for beds or flowerpots.

• Spiderwort (Tradescantia): Spiderwort produces clusters of small, vibrant flowers in shades of blue, purple, pink, or white. It’s a low-maintenance plant that attracts hummingbirds with its nectar.

By incorporating these plants into your garden, you not only create a haven for hummingbirds in the southeastern United States but also take on the responsibility of providing a water source. Remember, a birdbath is a perfect complement to the nectarrich flowers, making your garden even more inviting to these beautiful birds. These are but a few

means “help me.” Isn’t it wonderful to know that we can call on our Heavenly Father when we are in danger and count on him to deliver us?

Psalm 18:6 (NLT) says, “But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.”

Call Him

He will hear your prayer and provide the strength and guidance you need to overcome any trial or difficulty. Remember, God is always with you, ready to help you in your time of need.


“I’ve got to declare an emergency. My pilot’s deceased. I need help,” White said over the radio. “I need to get this on the ground. I’m flyin’ a King Air and my pilot is deceased,” he told the air traffic controllers. This is a statement from a man named Doug White who miraculously survived a traumatic situation with his wife Terri and two daughters. This incident was turned into a movie called “On A Wing And A Prayer.” I couldn’t imagine being in White’s situation, but I am glad they survived and lived to share this powerful testimony. The family shared how they could have died, but they prayed fervently, and God answered their prayers.

Psalm 50:15 (AMP)

“Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you shall honor and glorify Me.” Mayday is derived from the French phrase “m’aidez” which

The Bible is full of stories of individuals who cried out to God in their distress and were met with His mercy and grace. In the book of Psalms, King David often called out to God in his times of trouble.

Psalm 120:1 (NLT) says, “I took my troubles to the LORD; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.” So the next time you find yourself in a difficult situation, don’t hesitate to cry to God and say, “Mayday! Mayday! Lord, help me! Trust that

I praise you Lord, whose name is above all names. Father, thank you for hearing and answering my prayers. You are my refuge, my strength, a present help in the time of trouble. You see all of the things I am going through. Help Lord! I need you and I can’t make it through life without you. Uphold me, keep me, hide me in the shadow of your wings. Walk with me through the valley, river, and fire. You are the God of the impossible. I put my trust in you.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.”


I encourage you to open your heart to God’s love and grace. Seek forgiveness for past wrongs, and invite Jesus into your

heart as your Savior and Lord. Find a supportive community in a local church where you can grow and serve others. By dedicating time each day to reading the Bible and praying, you can cultivate a meaningful relationship with God.

Gardens Are a Work of Art

Cleveland County Arts Council’s 2024 Garden and Outdoor Living Tour

Like a painter, a gardener experiments with colors. Should a plant with bright orange blossoms go behind a dark purple bush? Like a sculptor, a gardener will look for plants with interesting shapes. Like a photographer, a gardener considers the changing light during the day.

Join us on Saturday, June 1, 9 am – 4 pm, as our self-guided tour of seven lovely outdoor living spaces returns and see the outside “artistry” that has been created.

Tickets ($20) may be purchased at the Arts Council, 111 S. Washington St., Shelby, Mon. – Fri. 9am – 4pm, Saturday 10am – 2pm in person or by calling 704-484-2787 and here: https://www.facebook. com/events/461311829679262. You can also purchase them at the individual homes the day of the event (cash/check only).

Also, that day, Paradise Garden Center, a sponsor of the event, invites you to stop in to see their selection of indoor, outdoor, annual, and perennial plants, many grown on site. While there, enjoy a slice of wood-fired pizza in their outdoor kitchen from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Paradise Garden Center is located at 460 Cherryville Rd Shelby, 704-480-1012, and is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The locations on the tour include:

others. We have a small vegetable garden with tomatoes, peppers, squash, and other kitchen veggies and herbs. There is a small “orchard” consisting of apple, cherry and peach trees, grapes and blueberries. Other trees include elm, maple, pecan, willow, oak, red twig dogwoods, pines, Japanese maples, birch and crepe myrtle trees. Most of the 3-4 acre or so yard has been in place for 35-40 years and some of the larger conifers are 30 plus feet tall. Everything on the property was planted by us after construction as we started with a totally bare landscape.

• Beth and Steve Gerhart 51 Heritage Lane, Shelby

Beth and Steve Gerhart retired to Shelby in 2012. Landscaping, including flower gardens and arbors, was the first improvement planned for Beth’s hobby at this home on Moss Lake. She is a member of the American Camellia Society and the local Herb Society. Varieties of camellias moved in pots from Louisiana now form a row planted on the east side of the front yard. You will find camellias also tucked into other parts of the gardens along with a mature holly tree, a magnolia and jasmine arbor, hydrangeas, azaleas and roses. Past the garage, on the kitchen deck is an assortment of culinary herbs.

Roses. The outdoor patio area is replete with a large variety of potted plants, herbs, a Plum Tree and even a Lemon tree! Be mesmerized by the sounds of water falling from the fountain situated in the center of the reclaimed 50-year-old farm pond. The pond is home to over 20 mature Hi Utsuri Koi that share the beauty and serenity of our wooded paradise.

• Bryan and Beth Shull 501 Williamsfield Dr., Shelby

Our traditional craftsmanstyle home, yard, and garden in the Johnsfield neighborhood of Shelby is 10 years old. Loving the mountains, we feel like we are there with the large evergreen trees that are a focal point of our yard. Over the last few years, we have been adding annuals and perennials to our landscape. Bryan loves working outside and keeping it well maintained. We welcome your visit, please feel free to rest and enjoy the scenery on our porches or at the fire pit.

• Joe and Janet Bothel 1114 Bethlehem Ch. Rd., Grover

• Billy and Catherine Lovelace

4021 Harris Creek Rd., Lawndale

We built our home on a little piece of paradise with a wonderful mountain view from sunrise to sunset. We began our yard and garden with a clean slate and an abundance of full sun and little shade on what used to be farmland with rooting, sprouting, and plants that had been started at our previous home. We set out to create a garden walk similar to the walking bridge in Lake Lure and initially planted it somewhat randomly. We are entering our third year and the garden is establishing its own character. Plants here have to be able to survive the harsh winds and brutal sun. We have Crepe Myrtle, Maples, Curly Willow, Nandina, Lillies, Iris, Sedum, Gardenia, Oak Leaf Hydrangea, Azalia, and much more. Flocks of Blue Birds, Yellow Finches, Hummingbirds, Martins, and Geese all add music to our day. We are closest to God when we are in the garden. Come and enjoy a little piece of paradise with us!

A sidewalk and steps, beside the small goldfish pond end at the lower-level patio. Another arbor in the back yard bears climbing roses and wisteria surrounded by a cottage garden. From there, lawn and oaks spread north to a sandy cove.

Family reunions bring about 75 relatives to enjoy the setting, and we invite you to enjoy it also.

• Bill and Jan Murray

412 Johnsfield Rd.

We moved to our property on Bethlehem Church Road in 1995 after having relocated from western Pennsylvania to western New York and then to Charleston, West Virginia. When we arrived here, there were only a few trees and a swimming pool. The landscape was stark and bordered mostly idle farmland. Today our property boasts many more trees and the pool became a garden. Ten years ago, we acquired six suri alpacas from a farm that was downsizing in eastern Ohio. That is how we became Out of the Blue Farm. We strive to provide sanctuary to as much wildlife as we can by planting keystone trees, including oaks and black cherry (which are host to at least 450 insects) and by providing ample pollinator plants. We use no chemicals in our gardens, and we have at least two healthy compost bins. We are always learning and experimenting and are open to new ideas.

• Boyd and Barbara Anthony

• Steve Leatherwood 121 Carriage Run, Shelby

Our yard/garden consists of several major groupings of plants. The largest group is conifers, hollies, and other evergreens. In addition, we have several flowering plants, including daylilies, petunias, peonies, hydrangeas, roses, and

Welcome to our verdant oasis and botanical wonderland. A symphony of colors, scents and textures to soothe, and relax, in a literal plant paradise. Our French Country style home is situated on 2.5 acres of professionally designed landscapes with a reclaimed quarter acre farm pond as the centerpiece of the property. We have lived here four years and have spent considerable time and effort to reclaim, refurbish, and expand upon the flora that was in place. The past owner spared no effort or expense in their initial landscaping efforts and our efforts are certainly a work in progress. Come and experience the botanical treasures which include an eclectic mix of flowering flora, towering Cryptomeria standing sentinel over Japanese Maples, Ferns, Heuchera, Rhododendron and numerous varieties of Azaleas. The tapestry continues featuring Day Lilies, Iris, Peonies, Ornamental Grasses, Roses and our personal favorite--the subtle charm of Lenten

Built on family farmland by the First Broad River, our dream home, inspired by unique coastal architecture, is our oasis. Landscaping and outdoor living areas feature unusual plantings accented with bronze sculptures, among peaceful areas to rest and enjoy our gardens, which we have created over the past 15 years. We hope that you will enjoy the tour.

History of the park: When exploratory drilling and excavation began in 1970, the threat that Crowders Mountain would be mined led local citizens to seek its preservation. The Gaston Conservation Society was organized to block mining operations and encourage the state to acquire and protect the mountain. Based upon the group’s proposal and local support, the state approved Crowders Mountain as a potential state park. A year later funds were appropriated for land acquisition. The park was created in 1973 but did not open to the public until 1974. It was not until 1978 that the summit of Crowders Mountain was included within the park boundary. The Pinnacle and additional acreage were acquired in 1988. In 2000, an additional 2,000 acres was purchased connecting the park to Kings Mountain State Park and Kings Mountain National Military Park in South Carolina.

I’ve always heard that writing is more about perspiration than inspiration. It’s true. Even though it is very fulfilling to write about the outdoors, it is also difficult at times to continue to find worthy subjects and stories. Sometimes my mind soars with information faster than my fingers can type. Other times those same fingers seem like they’re waiting impatiently for the next command. During the times of inspiration I can’t wait to get to the computer. During other times I dread its call. Every writer loves moments of inspiration.

I’ve discovered over the years there is a catalyst that induces inspiration. That catalyst is presence. Here’s what I mean. I find when I’ve been too busy to be outside, the inspirational juices dry up. But when I am in the presence of the water or woods, those same juices begin to flow. I can remember one year, being in a hotel in the middle of a large city. My view from the fourth floor was of pavement and people. This weekly article had to be written but after a week within those confines, my mind was empty of ideas. I still don’t remember what I wrote about, but I remember how barren I felt and how I longed for a room where my bed was an oak flat and my blanket were the trees that covered it. The lack of presence drained any creativity and inspiration. Sometimes we all must work under the master of perspiration. But unless there are moments of inspiration, we will eventually lay down the task.

In our spiritual life it is the same as well. Our spiritual inspiration must also come from presence. It comes from the presence of other believers, from the presence of the Word, and the presence of the very Spirit of God within us. And when we can enjoy all of these at one time, it is even better. And that’s why it’s so important to find the places where these come together. When we do, our spiritual effort will turn into spiritual rest. Has your passion for the Lord waned? Does your connection with God more feel like an effort instead of the relationship it is meant to be? Perhaps it’s because you have neglected the places where all your spiritual inspiration will be renewed. King David looked up into the rafters of the tabernacle and was inspired to write: “How lovely is your tabernacle, O LORD of hosts! Even the sparrow has found a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young.” If the birds can find refreshment in the places that we gather around God, I’m sure we can too.

Atrium Health Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

Atrium Health Cleveland and Atrium Health Kings Mountain volunteers were recently honored at a luncheon in Shelby during National Volunteer Week April 21-27, 2024.

Coordinated by Ginger Dover, Volunteer Services Manager, and Administrative Director Brandon Rayle, sixteen hospital volunteers were treated to a delicious sit-down meal at Shelby’s Pfeiffer’s Café. Ms. Dover and Mr. Rayle used the occasion to thank volunteers for their care and compassion to Atrium Health patients, families, visitors, and teammates.

Thousands of hours are donated annually by several dozen volunteers at the two hospitals. Among attendees at the event were several members of the Crisis Response Canine Team and their certified therapy dogs. Robin Ledford spoke on the role and responsibilities that they, and their calm-natured dogs, provide during times of crises. Other volunteers provide a wide variety of services such as helping as Intensive Care Unit liaisons, creating tray favors for patients at holidays throughout the year, performing administrative duties in several departments, and assisting in the Cleveland Gift Shop.

During the appreciation program, attendees were awarded service pins for their hours, and several received recognition for over 1,000 hours. Linda Ross was recognized as a member of the hospital’s core group of volunteers, having

donated many hours during the past 22 years. All those attending received a volunteer appreciation tote bag filled with Atrium Health swag items, in addition to plenty of door prizes. (And the well-behaved canine attendees received a special bag filled with delectable dog treats!)

Atrium Health deeply values the volunteers who unselfishly donate their time on behalf of others.

Mr. Rayle stated “Volunteers are the heartbeat of any community, serving from the depths of their hearts to make a difference in the lives of others. We at Atrium Health Cleveland and Kings Mountain are for-

tunate to have some of the best, serving alongside our teammates, as we aim to provide the very best care to our patients.”

Ms. Dover and Mr. Rayle would both love to welcome additional volunteers to the Atrium Health team. There are opportunities to develop and enhance valuable skills such as communication, empathy, problem-solving, and teamwork. There are


many different areas in which volunteers can offer their care, compassion, life skills and develop new friendships. They make a difference!

May Gardening Tips

As we step into May, the air is filled with the promise of spring and the vibrant colors of our perennial gardens. The earth's aroma is a sweet reminder of the season's awakening. This is the month when our outdoor planting efforts come to fruition, whether it's flowers, shrubs, or vegetables.

Remember, allowing spring bulbs to die back naturally ensures they can store food for next year’s blooms. It may be a tough decision, but pinching back annuals now will reward you with more blooms later. And after the spring flowering shrubs and vines have bloomed, timely fertilization will prepare them for the summer blooms to come.

mertime – get them planted. They need plenty of room to grow, a good airflow, and they love the sun. After planting, mulch tomatoes to hold moisture and keep the soil-borne fungus spores from splashing on the leaves when watering. Overhead sprinklers are not recommended; water is at the base of the plant. Check plants frequently for unwanted pests; you don’t want them to eat your sweet treasures.

There is something special about growing tomato plants and enjoying the benefits of eating a fresh, home-grown tomato! It’s always time to WEED, WEED, and WEED!! Stay ahead of those notorious tasks, and don’t let the insects bug you!
