High school honors two for Cougar service

Mountain Heritage High School honored a long-time teacher and a former administrator during Senior Night activities last week. Robert Buckner is the last remaining member of the original faculty that first opened Mountain Heritage High School. He has been a math teacher with the school for over 37 years. “Mr. Buckner has touched Cougar students for generations, including myself,” said Principal Kevin Huskins. “It is hard to imagine Mountain

Heritage without him; he will be greatly missed. The two things I will remember most about him is his ability to reach and care for every student and, of course, his love for Carolina basketball.” Stuart Jolley, the principal at Claremont Elementary and a former assistant principal at Mountain Heritage, was honored for the years he has spent as the announcer for MHHS athletics. “Anyone who has been to a Cougar

football or basketball game knows ‘the voice,’” Huskins said. Jolley has been announcing Heritage athletics since the 1990s but he started out as a student announcer at Mars Hill High School. “We are so blessed to enjoy the gift that Mr. Jolly has been given. He brings emotion and energy to Cougar fans in any atmosphere. He deserves this great honor, as he is without a doubt the best.”

Hoilman signs ETSU letter of intent Mountain Heritage’s Drew Hoilman has committed to play football at East Te n n e s s e e S t a t e University. A two-year starter who is 6 foot, 4 inches and 260 lbs., Hoilman is a tight end and defensive end. Hoilman played varsity basketball for two years before switching to football. “Coach Robinson had asked me to play football since my freshman year and … I really loved the game.” He said “strength training has been one of the biggest parts of my success. The transition from my junior to my senior year I lived in the weightroom, and it made a huge impact on the field.” Hoilman said he expects to play defensive end at ETSU “because I like defense better, but I’m versatile and will play where I’m needed. Coming from a long line of accomplished athletes in my family only helped me, because of their knowledge about the game … and their knowledge about

recruiting.” Hoilman said what he learned as a Cougar is a stepping stone to his college career. “I’ve learned that football is a tough sport and not going hard is not an option. I’ve learned that Coach Robinson is more like a father figure to me; he has helped me and pushed me to my potential and

I couldn’t thank him more.” Hoilman said he is undecided about a major at ETSU. “What I’ll miss most … is Friday nights and being with all my friends and getting to represent our home county.” Follow us @ welcomtothepit on Twitter

Three arrested; face felony charges

A Burnsville man has been arrested and jailed on felony charges of statutory rape. Chad Michael Allen, 20, of 1548 Scronce Creek Road, was charged with two felonies on a warrant issued by Magistrate B.G. Hensley Jr. on a complaint by B.J. Shuford of the Yancey County Sheriff’s Office. The warrant, dated Feb. 7, says there is probable cause to believe that Allen “willfully and feloniously did engage in a sexual act” with a 15year old child. The second charge accuses Allen of having intercourse with the child. Allen was in jail Tuesday under $100,000 secured bond. His probable cause hearing is set for Feb. 20. In an unrelated case, a Green Mountain man has been charged on felony warrants for possession with intent to sell prescription drugs. Nicholas Guy Robinson Jr., 25, of 232 Four Seasons Road, was charged on warrants dated Feb. 7 and issued by Magistrate B.G. Hensley Jr. on a complaint by Daniel Hughes of the Yancey County Sheriff’s

There’s an ‘odd duck’ child in every family Q: My 5-year-old is the youngest of my three children. Her older boy/girl twin siblings clearly outshine her athletically. They’re already very skilled at wakeboarding and snow skiing, for example. I think my youngest has decided that because she doesn’t measure up to her siblings, she will simply give up. All she wants to do is hang out with me. (I’m not athletic either, but everyone in the family except this one child is physically active.) Furthermore, she is disrespectful to anyone who tries to interest her in trying something new. She ignores the person, acting as if they weren’t even there. When I suggest activities, she becomes whiny and makes everyone miserable. I don’t know where to begin to start with helping her but something has to change before we all go crazy! A: You’re obviously “psychologizing” your daughter’s behavior and responding more to your interpretation than to what she is actually doing - actually, a common tendency in today’s parent culture. From my ironically non-psychological perspective, the problem is not that because she can’t keep up with her older siblings your daughter has “just decided

children

to give up;” the problem is that she’s often rude and disrespectful. She completely tunes out people who are talking to her, for example. You think you need to “help” her. I think you need to discipline her. However unwittingly and with good intentions, you’re making excuses for and therefore enabling her misbehavior. Her rehabilitation begins with treating people with respect. I recommend that you put her on my celebrated “Three Strikes You’re Out!” program. She receives a strike whenever she is disrespectful or whines. When she is disrespectful toward others or whines disruptively, she receives a strike. Each of the first two strikes of the day result in 15 minutes

of time-out. The third strike of the day results in her spending the remainder of the day in her room and going to bed immediately after supper. The second phase of her rehabilitation involves a change in your behavior. Stop “suggesting” activities to her. Find something you would like to do with her, and tell her, declaratively, “This is what I’ve decided you and I are doing today.” If she objects, tell her she has no choice in the matter. The activities in question should not involve her siblings and should not be things they already excel at. That will prevent unfavorable comparisons. I’m talking about mother-daughter things. Start slow. Take walks through parks or on nature trails, for example. Graduate from there to leisurely bike rides. The key is finding activities she can enjoy without having to compete. By the way, there’s an “odd duck” child in nearly every family. The challenge, always, is helping the child find a pond she feels comfortable swimming in.

make sure you check your vehicle’s tire pressures and fluid levels. If you are making a 2,000 mile round trip and your oil change is due in 1,000 miles, get it serviced early. When planning your trip do an online check of gas prices in the different states you pass through. For instance, filling up in South Carolina when you still have a quarter of a tank of gas can save nearly 50 cents per gallon over fill-ups in North Carolina or Georgia. Take periodic stops, not frequent breaks

It is important to take breaks, but not too many. Usually a stop every two to three hours allows the body to stretch and stay alert. People with ailments such as diabetes may need those stops closer to the two hour mark to prevent swollen feet and legs and help with blood circulation. A hunting trip to North Dakota with my father included stops at nearly every Bass Pro Shop, Cabela’s and Gander Mountain along the way, which was conveniently spaced about every two hours of drive time. Another trip involved us stopping at each state line rest stop we passed and getting photos next to the welcome signs. Ride comfortably and pack smart You have to be comfortable on a long road trip or it will wear you down quickly. Wear slip on shoes while driving so you can remove and put them on easily. Do not keep your wallet in your back pocket in order to prevent a tired and hurting tush. Keep items you can use on the trip near hand while packing clothes and beauty items in the trunk or storage compartments. Keep

a small cooler with drinks and snacks nearby. Change the return route Make it a true adventure. If you can alter the return route without losing too much time or miles, it will keep things fresh for the whole trip. New places to stop and explore and diff er ent scener y will make everyone happier. One trip we planned carried us through mountains and Amish country on a weekday while heading towards our destination, while the return trip was along the East coast passing through New York City, Baltimore and Washington D.C. during the weekend, avoiding traffic woes. And if the crosscountry trip doesn’t work out for a Valentine’s surprise for her, just make sure you don’t buy her a toaster or new ironing board. That probably will not work out very well. In fact, you may receive a gift from her afterwards that resembles a to-do list that will last you through next year’s Valentine’s day.
