That phrase has special meaning to folks who have achieved their dream of home ownership via help from Habitat for Humanity Cleveland County whose motto is “We provide a Hand UP, not a handout”.

Habitat for Humanity Cleveland County executive director Amy Allen stated the organization’s core philosophy.

“Our mission is seeking to put God’s love into action,” Allen said. “Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”

A perfect example of that credo was manifested recently with the dedication of two new homes in the Young Oak Square neighborhood of Shelby. The first dedication was June 9 and the second on June 22, 2024.

The story began in July, 2023 when five Cleveland County congregations partnered to help build a Habitat House in Young Oak Square. The home was dedicated a little less than one year later.

The five congregations that entered this partnership were

Eastside Baptist Church, New Creation Christian Center, Ryburn Memorial Presbyterian Church, St. Mary’s Help of Christians Catholic Church, and Shelby Presbyterian Church.

electrical installation, added all siding on the outside of the house, installed windows and doors, painted the entire inside

ing, put in interior doors, trim, and baseboards, hung cabinets


Additional workdays with regular volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday provided the time needed to complete the project. In addition to the contribution of volunteer labor, the churches raised $115,000 to assist the local Habitat Affiliate with the building of several homes.

Former Eastside Baptist pastor Rev. Dale Byrd talked about the church’s involvement.

“It has been awesome to see how God coordinated this Church Partnership Build,” Byrd said. “God sparked the idea from a simple informational meeting about the mission of Habitat where He gave a couple of pastors the idea of partnering together to build a home. Then before long five churches had committed to the partnership and soon the work began. Now, less than a year later, the home is complete. Go God!”

The two partner families of the Young Oak Square houses are Ashley Clark and Tachika Poston,” Allen said. “They were selected in June of 2022. During the last two years they have put in over 200 hours of ‘sweat equity’ in their new home. There is a third house at Young Oak Square that is in the dry and we hope to have completed by the beginning of 2025. We named this project Young Oak Square as we are building three houses at the corner of Young and Oak Streets. In April of this year, four new partner families were selected. One of those families will build at the third location at Young Oak Square while the other three will be at our next location on East Warren Street, Shelby.”

Poston expressed gratitude at being a new Habitat homeowner.

“This opportunity of homeownership has been a slow

City of Shelby Fire and Rescue Department

Earns ISO Class 1 Rating

The City of Shelby’s Fire and Rescue Department has earned the distinction of an ISO Class 1 rating. This is the highest rating a fire and rescue department can achieve and represents years of continuous improvement in fire and rescue services as well as the City’s water system. The City has made significant financial investments to better serve the community.

Davie Summey, Division Chief of Inspection and Ratings for the North Carolina Office of the State Fire Marshal made the presentation on behalf of Brian Taylor, the North Carolina state Fire Marshal, at the Shelby City Council meeting held on Monday, June 17, 2024.

An ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating is given to cities and towns across the country indicating how prepared they are for fires, and is graded on a scale of 1-10, with 1 representing communities with the most effective fire service capabilities, and 10 representing communities with the least effective fire service capabilities.

“The ISO inspection is not just about the fire department; this is the City of Shelby’s rating and includes the fire department as well as our water system, and our communication system” said Shelby Fire and Rescue Department Fire Chief, William Hunt. “This is a tremendous achievement for our city, and one in which we can all take pride.”

Of the 1,217 fire departments across North Carolina, only 30 have achieved the designation of an ISO 1 rating, and there are only 373 departments in the country that have obtained an ISO 1 class rating.

“We are thrilled to have obtained ISO class 1 rating” stated Shelby Mayor Stan Anthony. “It is a testament to the ongoing efforts of City Council to invest in the Shelby Fire and Rescue Department and the Water Resources Department. The City of Shelby to constantly stiving for excellence in these services for our community.”

Through these kinds of contributions, Habitat is able to sell the houses built to homeowners at an affordable price. Through no-interest financing homeowners pay a mortgage that is typically less than monthly rent for a typical apartment in Cleveland County. Beginning with favorable initial equity, the homeowner then builds additional equity as they pay their mortgage. In addition, Habitat homeowners are tax-paying residents of Cleveland County.

Allen explained how homeowners are picked.

“Our selection process is based on need for housing, willingness to partner, and ability to pay. Income must be 30% to 80% of HUD area median income, credit reliability, and debtto-income ratio. The selection process is rigorous. We had 62 applications this year and they competed for four spots.”

Habitat for Humanity Cleveland County has a strong tradition. It was affiliated in 1987 and built its first house in 1988. Before becoming dormant, the organization built four houses. Since its founding Habitat was reorganized in 2002 and increased its building capacity with 36 completed houses to date. That is 36 completed houses since 1987. Habitat has built and refurbished individual homes and has been involved in community development in the Ezra Bridges Neighborhood and Vermont Village and various other single homes throughout the county.

“The projects in our county exemplify the impactHabitatwantstocon-

tinue as we grow,” Allen said. “Working with faith, corporate, and community partners, Habitat has consistently built strong homes to improve the lives of families in our county.”

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I apply for a Habitat for Humanity house? Habitat for Humanity in Cleveland County accepts applications at the ReStore. Visit our website www.habitat to print an application or pick one up at the Office/ ReStore, located at 323 W.Grover St., Shelby.

How does Habitat select applicants for the Homeownership Program? Applicants are selected using three criteria: Need for affordable housing, ability to pay an affordable mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat. Are Habitat houses free? No. Habitat for Humanity is not a giveaway program. Instead, homeowners make an initial escrow payment of $1,800, work hundreds of “sweat equity” hours, attend homeowner education, and pay an affordable mortgage.

What is Sweat Equity? Sweat equity is the time and effort you contribute to constructing your house and other Habitat houses. Sweat equity is the hours you work building homes, at the ReStore, Office, or other Habitat activities. Future homeowners invest a minimum of 200 hours for a single applicant or 400 hours for two applicants. Additional adults living in the home may be subject to sweat equity requirements. Friends and family may help you with some of your sweat equity by volunteering with Habitat and pledging their time to you. The donated hours may not total more than 25% of your total 200 required volunteer hours.

What days can I work? Construction workdays are Thursdaysandthesec-

ond and fourth Saturdays each month, usually from 8:00 am until midday. ReStore and Office hours are available on an as-needed basis. Our construction manager sends a weekly email with information regarding construction.

What days are the homeowner education classes? Homeowner education classes are required and are scheduled with our volunteer counselor.

How long will it take for the construction of my house? It generally takes approximately 18 months from the beginning of the program to the completion of your home. During this time, you will work on completing your sweat equity requirement, attending homeowner education classes, and making installments on your initial escrow payment.

Do I have to have perfect credit? You do not have to have perfect credit. Your credit must display your ability and willingness to repay the Habitat mortgage. You must maintain creditworthiness throughout the process.

Are Habitat houses quality built? Habitat houses are well-constructed, energy-efficient homes. In addition, Habitat houses meet or exceed all the same building codes as houses built by any other builder.

Do I need to have any building skills before I apply? No, Habitat has a qualified Construction Manager who works with you, other families, and volunteers to teach you home construction. You will be amazed at how much you learn!

Key components of a fun picnic

Dining al fresco is often associated with securing outdoor seating at a local restaurant. However, anyone can enjoy al fresco dining at home, in a park or even on the beach.

Picnics make it easy to enjoy a meal in an idyllic setting. Though there’s no rules governing picnics other than those posted by local park officials, the following are some essential components of a fun picnic.


The menu for a picnic need not be elaborate, but there’s also room for foods that are a little more fancy than sandwiches. Sandwiches are still acceptable picnic fare, but those who want to expand their horizons can prepare cheeseboards, salads, fresh fruit, and other items that are easily prepared and packed in a picnic basket. It’s best to avoid hot foods, as they can be difficult to keep warm. Small grills might be allowed in certain parks, but it’s best to keep in mind that others may not want to deal with smoke from burning coals. So individuals who plan to grill during a picnic should choose a remote

spot that won’t affect those around them.


Cold beverages, including water, can ensure no one is overcome by heat. Individuals who want to bring alcohol should only do so on private property, as many local laws do not allow consumption of alcoholic beverages in public spaces like parks and beaches. A cooler with cold beverages stored in ice can be a good idea if a lot of people will be attending the picnic.

Reusable containers

Reusable containers decrease the chances of creating litter. All it takes is one stiff wind for single-use, resealable plastic bags to blow away, and it’s not always easy to track those bags down. Picnickers should aspire to take out everything that they take in, and reusable containers make that easier to accomplish.

Basket and tablecloth

A tablecloth does more than just set the scene for a picnic. Tablecloths collect crumbs and keep them off the ground, which can decrease the likelihood that uninvited guests like ants will join the festivities. Table-

cloths also ensure utensils can be set out and put down without getting dirty.

Comfortable seating

Though it’s entirely possible some guests will want to sit on the ground throughout the picnic, some comfortable seating can provide the perfect respite when the hard ground begins to feel a little less accommodating. Instruct guests to bring their own foldable lounge chairs, and don’t forget to bring a picnic blanket or two so anyone who wants to nap can catch a few winks. When hosting a beach picnic, look for blankets that dry quickly. Some are even made of fabric that filters out sand to keep it off of food. Miscellaneous items Bug spray, sunscreen, a bluetooth speaker, biodegradable waste bags, some sports equipment and other items to keep adults and kids occupied, and even a portable fan to keep guests cool and repel mosquitoes are some additional musthaves for a fun picnic.

A picnic in the park or on the beach can be a great way to dine outside and relax in the summer sun.

Prescription opioids can be addictive and dangerous. It only takes a little to lose a lot.

Despite their diminutive size, blueberries pack quite a powerful, healthy punch. Blueberries contain a compound known as anthocyanin, which gives them their blue hue but also contributes to their nutritious properties. For example, the Mayo Clinic notes that studies have found consumption of foods that are high in anthocyanins can help individuals lower their risk of developing coronary heart disease. In addition, blueberries are a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber, making them worthy of addition to anyone’s diet.

My first visit to the Davis Ranch in the Dallas Texas area was in 2013. There I met several men including John Davis, the owner. We hit it off almost immediately. It was not too long after that, I began flying there a couple times a year to do hunting and speaking events with a small group of men. That place holds a lot of great memories. It was there I took my first Rio turkey. It was there I harvested several pigs. And it was there where I met the most amazing men, many who have become lifelong friends. The first Circle Event was held there. It was nothing more than what we had been doing, but with a greater emphasis on making sure we encouraged men in their faith. But these events were more than me teaching. They were special in that we just hung out, ate well, laughed, competed, hunted, and just learned about the life of each person who was there. I know it sounds like we’re putting these events to rest. We’re not. We’re just putting them to rest at the Davis Ranch. After 19 years, John decided to sell the ranch. The children are grown and have their own family and interests that don’t include this special place. Even though it will always be special to them. While they have so many mixed emotions about “dad” selling, they understand that things change as we each get older. While all of this sounds a bit sad (and it is) there is so much good that continues to come from this place. And it was all because years ago, John felt like the Davis Ranch ought not only be used for his own pleasure, but for a Godly purpose. So, he did that, and while the Davis Ranch will change hands, Circle Events and ministry continue to happen, and even grow. Isn’t that neat?! Isn’t that tremendous how we can plant a seed that continues to produce fruit when we think God is done? All we have to do is be willing to give God permission to use what we have. I’m getting ready to go to my 5th Circle Event in a couple of weeks. And there are more scheduled this year. Thanks John, for being willing.

But here’s the rest of the story. Not only was there a special beginning between the Davis Ranch and Outdoor Truths, but there was a special ending as well. At our last event, one man, Lee, who had lived most of his life as an atheist, was baptized – at the ranch- in the tank (pond), by his good friend Barry who had influenced him toward Christ. It was the first time each had attended a Circle Event. So, there we were, in the same water the cows enjoy, in the heat of Texas, celebrating new beginnings. Lee’s and John’s.

Gary Miller has written Outdoor Truths articles for 21 years. He also speaks at wildgame dinners and men’s events for churches and associations.

With the July 4th holiday approaching, Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman asks all citizens to join him in making this Fourth of July holiday happy, enjoyable, and safe for everyone.

The U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission (2022) found in their annual report a significant increase in fireworks-related injuries in recent years. Between 2006 and 2021, injuries caused by fireworks increased by 25%. Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman urges families to stay safe during their holiday celebrations by following these safety tips:

5 fun facts about the month of July

July is synonymous with fun in the sun. In the northern hemisphere, July is typically characterized by sunny days, warm weather and long hours of daylight, making it an ideal month to enjoy a little rest and relaxation. Though it might be a great time for some R&R, July also boasts an interesting history. As revelers soak up some sun this summer, they can ponder these fun facts about the month of July.

1. July is named after a person whose been famous for thousands of years. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, Roman dictator Julis Caesar developed the precursor to the Gregorian calendar used today. Though that made him worthy of a month named in his honor, it didn’t do much to protect him during his life, as Caesar was famously assassinated in 44 B.C.

2. July is a celebratory month for fans of revolution. American Independence Day (July 4) and Bastille Day (July 14), which commemorates the storming of the Bastille and the dawn of the French Revolution in 1789, are among the notable revolutionary moments celebrated in July.

3. Baseball historians know that many significant events in the game have taken place in July, and some records set in the month have withstood longer than others. On July 12, 1931, Mel Ott of the New York Giants hit his 100th career homerun, becoming the youngest player to reach that milestone. Ott was 22 years and 132 days old when he set the mark, which still stands today.

4. One of the more famous statements in United States history was uttered in July, though it wasn’t within American borders or even on the planet Earth.

On July 20, 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong, after stepping onto the surface of the moon, declared, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

5. Two men who played integral roles in the American colonies gaining their independence from Great Britain both passed away on July 4th, the day that celebrates that very independence. On July 4th, 1826, former presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who were once friends, then political rivals and, finally, friends again, passed away within hours of each other.

2023-2024 BASS Junior and High School Fishing Team Year in ReviewYear in Review

What a tremendous year the CCBA fishing team has had during the 20232024 fishing season. We’ve seen growth, we’ve competed at a high level, and we’ve seen first(s) happen this year for the CCBA team.

team for CCBA to win a State Championship title!

Interesting facts related to Independence Day

Americans celebrate Independence Day every July 4. The holiday has become synonymous with summer fun, as grand fireworks displays and backyard barbecues are integral components of many people’s July 4 celebrations.

As Americans and residents of the United States prepare for some festive Fourth of July celebrations, they can keep these interesting facts related to Independence Day in mind.

• There have been many iterations of the American flag. The American flag has become an iconic symbol of freedom recognized across the globe since the United States declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776. But few July 4 celebrants may know that the current version is the 27th iteration of the American flag. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the current version of the flag officially became the flag on July 4, 1960.

• More than half of all Americans own an American flag. A 2023 poll from WalletHub found that 57 percent of

Americans own an American flag. And that’s not the only way Americans show their national pride, as the same poll found that roughly one in three Americans intended to purchase patriotic merchandise for July 4.

• The United States is not the only place to celebrate American independence. Such celebrations occur in various countries, including Australia, Denmark, Ireland, and Norway. The festivities in Rebild National Park in Denmark is believed to be the largest celebration of American independence outside the United States.

• The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council estimates that 150 million hot dogs are consumed on July 4. Though there’s no corresponding estimate related to how many hamburgers Americans eat on July 4, various reports suggest Americans eat roughly

50 billion burgers annually, so it’s fair to conclude many a burger will be consumed this Independence Day.

• July is a popular month for nations to celebrate their independence. In addition to the United States, various countries, including Algeria (July 5), Argentina (July 9), The Bahamas (July 10), Belarus (July 3), Burundi (July 1), Canada (July 1), Cape Verde (July 1), Colombia (July 20), Kiribati (July 12), and Liberia (July 26), celebrate their Independence Day in July.

• John Adams, a Founding Father of the United States and the second president in the country’s history, felt Americans should celebrate their independence from Great Britain on July 2. That’s because the Continential Congress voted for independence on July 2, 1776. However, the Declaration of Independence was not approved for two more days, thus making July 4 the day to celebrate America’s independence from Great Britain.

Sparklers are not child’s play

Did you know that the average primary flame blowtorch burns at around 2,000 F? USFS National Technology and Development says wildland fires typically burn between 1,600 and 2,000 F. Aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, and cast iron also can reach melting points at or slightly below 2,000 F.

materials should not hold sparklers, warn health experts. Older children should be carefully supervised around sparklers and other fireworks.

Those who want to avoid any possible injuries on July 4 and during other summer celebrations would be wise to avoid sparklers in favor of safer forms of entertainment. Here are some ideas.

from a distance.

It’s likely safe to say that parents would never let their children handle a blowtorch, wander into a forest fire nor touch molten metals, yet many seemingly have no concerns about children playing with sparklers during July 4 celebrations. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia says people often treat sparklers much too casually, even though they can burn at temperatures of about 2,000 F. Children are allowed to hold and wave these red-hot metal rods like toys. Sparkler sticks pose a serious burn risk, and the sparks can cause additional burns and eye injuries, warns the CHOP. Young children who would not be trusted with other hot

• Glow sticks light up in the dark and can be worn or waved around safely.

• Fill water balloons with a mixture of glitter and water. When the balloons pop, it is a festive display.

• Send children around with canned string products that they can spray on one another. If making a mess isn’t an issue, shaving cream “fights” also can be fun diversions for children.

• Adults can lead by example and leave the fireworks displays to the professionals. Take a ride over to the seaside or where a town is hosting a fireworks display and enjoy the sights

• Purchase battery-powered blinking lights, such as those sold at circuses or concerts. Kids can spend hours running around with them in hand. Less expensive flashlights purchased at a dollar store can create the same effect.

• Let children play with confetti cannons.

• “Snappers” or “poppers” could be an option if they are sold nearby. These are small noisemakers that explode and pop when they are thrown at a hard ground surface.

Sparklers may be festive and beautiful to behold, but they are not designed to be handled by children. Alternatives to sparklers are equally fun and much safer.

Rest is a Necessity

Rest. It’s a word that sounds simple but has become almost foreign in our modern world. In our pursuit of productivity, success, and constant connection, we’ve lost touch with the rhythm of rest that God designed for us. As we step into the seventh month of July, let’s take a moment to reclaim the sacred gift of rest, a gift that God Himself demonstrated and commanded us to embrace. He didn’t need to rest, but He did. He set an example for us, showing that rest is not just a pause from work but a divine principle woven into the fabric of creation. Genesis 2:2 (NLT) tells us, “On the seventh day God had finished his work of

Make the Exchange

We’ve drifted far from this divine rhythm in our overstimulated society, where busyness is often worn as a badge of honor. We’re constantly bombarded with notifications, deadlines, and demands. The noise of our lives drowns out God’s still, small voice calling us to rest. But Jesus, in His gentle and compassionate way, invites us back to this place of rest.

Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT) offers us this beautiful promise from Jesus: “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I

So, how do we reclaim this sacred rest? Unplug from technology, step away from work, and create space for stillness. Engage in activities that bring you joy and draw you closer to God. Spend time in prayer, read Scripture, and let your soul breathe. Remember, rest is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. It’s a divine invitation to step out of the relentless pace of life and into the embrace of our loving Father. As we honor the principle of rest, we align ourselves with God’s perfect design and find the peace and restoration our souls crave. In this seventh month, let’s commit to rediscovering the beauty of rest. Let’s follow God’s example and command, trusting that we are made whole when we rest.
