Carly C. Bostic, Executive Director of the Uptown Shelby Association, noted recently that Uptown Shelby’s new Social District started as of July 1. Bostic said this is a “first” for Uptown Shelby, adding, “(and) a big thanks is owed to our elected officials and the employees of the City of Shelby for recognizing the impact that a social district has on the vitality of local businesses.”

She continued, “The start of social districts was made possible when the NC General Assembly passed a law (HB890) in September of 2021 that allowed local city and county governments to create social districts. This change in law allows cities, like Shelby, to go beyond their sidewalk ordinances permitting alcohol out-

patrons to fully explore the city and participating businesses.”

Bostic noted also “…The Uptown Shelby Social District is an ordinance that was voted on and approved by the City of Shelby City Council on April 15, 2024, and took effect on July 1, 2024.

The Uptown Social District will be available seven days a week, Monday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.”

The City of Shelby Police Department and Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) have been educated on the social district program and policies and are available when or if needed.

Ms. Bostic said, regarding anyone not adhering to the set rules for the program/ordinance, or breaking said/stated rules of the ordinance, and that since the Uptown Shelby Social District is part of the City of Shelby and encompasses both public and private sections of the city, that “…patrons that participate are encouraged to walk and enjoy Historic Uptown Shelby and the various businesses while enjoying an alcoholic drink within the specified boundaries and hours of the district. However, if a patron does violate the city ordinance, then violators may face civil or criminal punishment as specified within the ordinance.”

Patrons, said Bostic, must note that the cups are not reusable and must be disposed of before leaving the social district, and that failure to do so would be a violation of the ordinance.

“To help ensure compliance,” she noted, “the back of every social district cup will contain the establishment’s name, day, and time.”

She continued, “If you were to go into ‘Business A’ and purchase a beverage it will have that specific business name and logo as well as the day and

time it was ordered. A major goal of the social district is to assist with economic vitality and foot traffic in Uptown. For example, someone could order a beverage from a restaurant while waiting for their table and walk around Uptown Shelby and shop, but only in the businesses that have the ‘Welcomed Here,’ or ‘Sold Here’ decal on their window front.”

She stressed also that no one may bring their own alcoholic beverage into the social district at any time ever.

On the City of Shelby’s web-

single patron may purchase any combination of the following at one time: 1.) two beers, or 2.) two wines, or 3.) one wine and one beer, or 4.) one mixed drink, as per N.C. Gen. Stat. 18B-300.1 (e)(3) and 18B1010.”

Bostic also stated that in authorizing municipalities to create social districts, the N.C. General Assembly “…also created specific requirements to be followed in creating and

She added, “While every town may have different designs or setups, many of the programs, policies, and standards are the same throughout North Carolina. In researching this program to see if it would be a good fit for Uptown Shelby, I have spoken with representatives at the City of Lenoir, the City of Hickory, and the City of Kannapolis.”

By way of giving additional information on the Shelby

Social District, Ms. Bostic said any businesses in the Uptown Shelby Municipal Service District boundaries are eligible to go to the City of Shelby Social District web page and fill out an application.

She continued, “They have four choices to choose from that best serves their business – Sold Here: Drinks are available for purchase at this establishment; Welcomed Here: Drinks are welcome in this non-ABC permitted establishment; Not Permitted Here: Drinks are prohibited and unavailable for purchase; Sold Here +

NO Outside Beverages: this ABC-permitted establishment participates but does not allow outside drinks in their business. There is signage placed within the Uptown Shelby Social District. This signage includes guidelines of the Social District, as well as when you are leaving the district.”

Bostic noted a person, or persons, may report anyone breaking the regulations of the social district by calling the Shelby Police Department’s non-emergency number at (704) 484-6845, or, in case of a true emergency and when an immediate response

is needed, they can call 911 to report the details of the crime you witness, she said.

As per the City of Shelby’s website, all businesses located within the social district have the option to “opt out” of the district, and don’t have to allow alcohol within their place of business. Signage will be provided to all businesses to clearly indicate their status within the district, noted the City’s website.

finally made my trip to the river. I had been longing for this day for a few weeks now. It had been over a year since I had made this solitary float down the Clinch River. There are so many beautiful areas to put and take out. But I picked one of my favorites. I like it because it has enough shoals to congregate the fish during the summer heat. And since the water is low, there are plenty of places to park the kayak and get out and cast into several hidden holes. I spent the first hour only a few yards from the place I launched. I didn’t want to bypass some of the best fishing spots just because they were so close. And since I had arrived a few minutes before daylight, I knew I would be fishing at a key time. And I was right. It only took a few casts to land my first smallmouth. But that was just a part of what made it a perfect day to be there.

As I said earlier, I had planned to go a few weeks before. Even though I didn’t have a certain day in mind, this particular Monday ended up being the best day for me to go. My son followed me to the place where I would leave my truck, and then took me to my launch. He left, and I loaded the kayak for my 5-hour float. I couldn’t have picked a better day. The weather was perfect. The water was perfect. The scenery was perfect. And the smallmouth were eager enough to give me a productive day. But it wasn’t just the fishing that soothed my soul. It was the whole experience. It was the bald eagle and the beaver. It was the river otter and the crane. It was the solitude of the current and the shout of creation. I was enamored by the beauty of what only God could put together. It was a harmony that natural selection could never replicate. But I plan on trying to replicate it again very soon by taking another trip. Because once you experience the rush of God bombarding you with his first language, you can’t help but find a way to sit at his feet once again.

Anywhere, Anytime

(Part 2 of the “REST” series)

declares the Lord.” God is present everywhere, waiting for us to seek Him out. Moses and God’s Presence

fidence that He will give us rest - rest from our labors, rest from our worries, and rest from our fears.

The Helper

Rest is not just a physical state, but a spiritual one. It’s the ability to quiet our minds, be still, and recover our strength. We often associate rest with a specific time or place, but God’s rest is available to us at any moment and location because he is omnipresent. The omnipresence of God means that He is always with us, regardless of our circumstances. God is there, whether we’re experiencing joy, sorrow, energy, or fatigue. Jeremiah 23:24 (ESV) reminds us “Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth?

The story of Moses in Exodus 33:15 (ESV) illustrates this truth. When Moses asked God to reveal His presence, God replied, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” This promise assured Moses that God would always be with him. Just as Moses knew God’s presence was with him, leading him through the wilderness to the Promised Land, we too can know and experience God’s presence. In those moments of uncertainty and darkness when we can’t feel His presence, we must remember the promise from Psalm 16:8 (NLT), “I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” We can have con-

crumbs, butter and sugar. Press onto bottom and 1 to 2 in. up the inside of a greased 10-in. springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

The Holy Spirit is a constant and permanent resident in our hearts and minds, empowering us to live as children of God. Jesus promised this divine helper in John 14:16 (AMP): “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever.” However, just as we need to tune into the right frequency to receive a radio broadcast, we must intentionally seek God’s presence to experience His peace and rest. This can be achieved by cultivating habits that draw us closer to Him, such as listening to uplifting worship music that praises God’s goodness or taking time for quiet reflection and journaling.

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided

3 cups cold whole milk

2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant lemon pudding mix

“Father, I will exalt and praise your holy name. Your omnipresence is just another aspect of your majesty and nature. I will glorify your name. My heart rejoices that I can come into your presence and find rest for my soul. Thank you, Lord, for peace, strength and comfort. I love you. In Jesus’ nameAmen.”

CONNECTING TO GOD: 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. You can cultivate a meaningful relationship with God by dedicating daily time to reading the Bible and praying.
