Herring a good catch
for Braves squad
With a last name like Herring and
playing for a junior college named
Chowan, one would expect this basket-'
ball player to be at home around nets.
Basketball nets that is.
Zach Herring, who will wear the blue
and white for Giowan College the next
two years, has already proved to be a
good catch for the school’s program.
For Herring, being caught up in the
net of a successful and nationally
recognized program should tip the
scales in his favor when it comes time
to put his player on the market for four
year colleges to consider.
Herring is in safe waters at Chowan,
whose total athletic program has
spawned several successes. The
basketball program’s most famous pro
duct, so far, is NCSU’s Nate McMillan.
Herring, a product of Wilmington’s
Laney High School, served notice Tues
day night that he will be a force to con
tend with during his college career.
Herring was named MVP of the 37th an
nual East-West All-Star game in
Greensboro, scoring 25 points and grab
bing eight rebounds in leading the East
squad to an 89-87 win over the taller
Coming from Laney High School,
home of the NBA’s Air (Michael) Jor
dan, Herring is constantly facing peo
ple casting comparisons between him
and the former UNC standout.
Herring, who stands somewhat bet
ween 6-foot 3 and 6-foot 4, will find
himself being compared to former

North Carolina’s Piedmont region is
known worldwide as a commercial fur
niture center. Twice each year retailers
come from aU over the world to look at
and order furniture in High Point and
the surrounding area.
But far fewer people know the same
area is also an arts center. In fact,
within a 20- or 30-minute drive from the
furniture market buildings are a
number of unique museums, galleries
and decorative arts centers. Together
they help make an impressive case for
North Carolina as one of the major arts-
producing states in the country.
In Winston-Salem, for example, are
found the Museum of Early Southern
Decorative Arts, Reynolds House and
Old Salem, which are devoted to
historic arts, as well as the
Southeastern Center for the Arts, Pied
mont Craftsman, Inc., and the
Sawtooth Arts Center, which concen
trate on the comtemporary area.
In nearby Greensboro, there is a the
Green Hill Center for North Carolina
Art, a non-profit gallery which devotes
itself entirely to nurturing and ex
hibiting the work of North Carolina ar
Besides these organizations in the
Piedmont area, organizations within a
few hours distance include Penland
Craft School in Penland, the John C.

No one is quite sure why the state sup
ports so many artists and arts groups
but Phyllis Lang, editor of “The Arts
Journal,” says the state is believed to
have witfiin its borders the largest
number of artists, outside of New York
According to Ms. Lang, the state’s
long history of support for the arts is
partly responsible for the current fever
of activity. She noted tfiat the tradi
tional arts, especially pottery, weaving
and music, have always been impor
tant. Furthermore, the large number
of visitors who come for vacations
bring with them both interest and
The appeal of the state as a place to
live has attracted artists and craftsmen
from other areas as permanent
residents. Besides the Penland area in
the Blue Ridge Mountains, where about
100 craftsmen live and work, other ar
tists’ colonies are found in Winston-
Salem, Durham and Chapel Hill and in
the Southern Pines region, she added.

Chowan greats. For the new kid to
make his mark at Chowan, he’s going to
have to at least play up the standards
set by McMillan, Greg Hollingsworth,
Jim Dillard, and Jerome Cooper. The
fast three names on the list have signed
with successful four year schools, with
last year’s leader Hollingsworth going
to the University of South Florida.

Herring can do it all on the court —

come out of the Chowan spawning

himself in waters teeming with talent.
Tfu-ee new faces will be found walk

at Chowan College this school year.
A new wrestling coach, assistant foot
ball coach and a director of the pre

named to the Chowan faculty.
Robert Casmus is the college’s head

Krautheim replaces Mike Bradley.
Bradley left Chowan to accept the assi-

some of the best young men in their

Chowan College athletics and add their
own mark to Chowan sports.

A very strange statement for a world torn by strife, hunger,
loneliness, and hardship. Can it be that God over states His
love. No! What God has declared is tremendously true as seen
in Holy Scripture.
In Genesis God speaks and creation is born. Order, Light,
Life, and opportunity come from God s actions and God says,
“It is Good”. However, man sins by disobedience to God. So,
how can it be good? The key is in the scripture which states that
before the foundation of the world God gave His son. God had
created so that he could Love and redeem. It is only in our
failure that we realize the need and love of God. It is in our
hardships that we can come to know His redeeming love. So it
works for Good to those that love the Lord.
In the story of Abraham and Sarah we see them longing for a
son. God assures them of a son. Years sUp by without the birth
of a son and their faith begins to waver. They decide to help God
out and arrange for Abraham to give Hagar a servant woman a
child. From the birth of the child comes bitterness in the home.
The child, Ishmael, and its mother are cast out after Abraham
and Sarah have a child, Isaac. Good out of it! The lack of faith
of Abraham and Sarah led to hate, jealousy, and problems; but
from it God brings goodness. God didn’t hate Ishmael. God lov
ed Ishmael and blessed Ishmael. It was Ishmael’s descendants
later in the mountains that harbors Moses who fled from Egypt
for murder. It is there that Moses learns of God and is conunis-
sioned of God to deliver the Family of Abraham from Egypt.
After the Exodus it is the descendant of Ishmael, the father-in-
law of Moses that leads the Children of Abraham through the
wilderness. So all things do work together for good for those
that love the Lord.
In the story of Jacob and Esau we see the life of the two
brothers torn by jealousy. Each fears that the other will be the
head of the family. Deception and anger causes the family to
break up. However, in separation they come to know the love of
God and his Guidance over the years. Years go by and reunion
takes place with neither brother desiring to be the head of the
family or to possess the material goods. Each has learned to de
pend upon God and they seek new relationships. Not just obe
dience to customs was the result but heart loving relationships
to each other and to God.
In the story of Joseph we see as a boy he was a brat. His
brothers hated him. Because of their jealousy and hate they sell
him into slavery. The whole family suffers in regret for years.
Years later Joseph has an opportunity to help his brothers and
the family. All having grown in spirit Joseph said to them, “You
thought to do me evil, but God meant it for Good.”
“God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that
whosoeverbelieved in Him Should not perish but have
everlasting life.” The Christmas story shares the gift of God’s
love in Christ. We see Christ heal, feed, forgive, and bless in
dividuals of all ages and races. For his love he is hated, ciu’sed,
betrayed, and placed on the crosrf. Biit it is through this that we
hear Him saying to the father, “forgive them they know not
what they do.” It is then that we realize that we can’t really kill
the Word of God, Christ. We hear him saying: “I have come
that you might have life”; “Go therefore and make disciples,
baptize them in the spirit of God, teach them all things and I am
with you.”; “Love the Lord Thou God with all thy heart, mind,
soul, and body; and Love your neighbor as you Love yourself”;
“If you believe in me you shall never die.” All things do work
together for good to those who love the Lord.
