Deborah Hayes Hits The Big Time
Kings Mountain Model |
Lands Job In Europe
BY GARY STEWART
Since getting into modeling five years ago, Kings Mountain’s
Deborah Hayes has dreamed of hitting the big time.
In an interview with this reporter several months ago in Charlotte,
where she was working as director of the Barbizon(now Powell)
Modeling Agency, Ms.Hayes said she hoped to someday land a model-
ing job in either Europe or New Y ork.
She flew to New Y ork several times last fall to try to land a job there
for herself and a number ofher students, but nothing panned out. She
was surprised last week when Unlimited Glamour of Milano, Italy, call-
ed her and offered her a job.
Deborah had not even attempted to land a job in Italy, but learned
the the Milano Agency had heard about her from a former acquain-
tance in Charlotte, who showed the agency some pictures of Deborah.
So, on May 8, Deborah will leave her Charlotte home and her fami-
ly and friends here, and fly to Milan to model in Italy, Paris, Germany
and possibly London. She plans to stay there at least six months and
hopefully move to bigger and better things in New Y ork. She will be
doing fashion modeling for some of Europe’s leading magazines and
working some live fashion shows.
“I'm kind of nervous going that far from home, but I'm excited
but doesn’t know a word of Italian. |
“I bought an Italian phrase book that can get my luggage to airport
and get me my food,” she says. “I don’t think it will realy be a problem.
Most people in the large cities there can speak English. They take
~ English as a second language from the third grade on, so I should be
able to meet a lot of people that I can talk to.”
“Since I started modeling, I always knew that someday I would get
to go to Europe,” she said. “I never really thought of how it would
come about. When they called me it was a shock. It still hasn’t sunk in. |
It’s something you read about happening to other people but never
think it could happen to you.”
Many of her friends are throwing her a “ Bon Voyage” party at 2001
in Charlotte from 6:30 until 9 p.m. next Wednesday. I've sort of lost i
touch with many of my friends in Kings Mountain,” she says.
“Anyone who would like to attend may call Tamara Dutton at
892-3399 in Charlotte to be placed on the guest list.”
Meanwhile, Deborah is busy clearing out her apartment in
Charlotte and packing furniture for storage, and spending as much
time as she can with her parents and friends. 4
Her parents, who have supported her 100 percent through her first
five years of modeling, are about as excited as she is about her going to
GOING TO ITALY - Kings Mountain model Deborah Hayes
will be moving to Milan, Italy, May 8 to model for one of
Europe's leading modeling agencies. She will work in fashion
photography and runway modeling. She is the daughter of
about it,‘she says. ‘It’s an opportunity not many people get. Even if I
get over there and don’t model, at least I will be able to see Europe. It
will be a learning experience.”
“The only bad thing about it is that I won’t be home on Mother’s
Day,” she said. “Theyre really excited about it. They plan to go to Ita-
ly on vacation. They've been very supportive of me and I'm lucky that

A not so subtle change had come over the small
group of people. The crowded city had every spare
room jammed with out of town visitors. Second and
third cousins knocked on their city dwelling king’s
door, hoping for a free corner to unroll their
blanket. In that mob, this group of people clung
together, their common bond being the worry of a
world fallen apart.
It’s not so different from any survival scene, is it?
The close followers, in their hidden away rooms
wondering what their next step will be; wondering
who their new leader will be; wondering if maybe
they should disband; wondering what would replace
the shattered dreams, the sudden emptiness.
Wondering if life makes any sense anymore...
Several years ago the movie “Hitler” portrayed
the infamy of a man who as much as any man was
the personalization of evil. As the end of the Third
Reich drew near, their hideaway in the bowels of
Berlin, saw their resolutions. The band of followers
were making their plans; suicide, murder, flight to
the most kindly of enemies, drunkenness to blot out
the inevitable capture. The answers for the shat-
tered dream were hopeless, dark, foreboding.
The group of followers gathered in the crowded
city, had a similar shattering of dream and hope, but
a very different, in fact an amazing resolution was
There was a resurrection!
There was resurrection of the one who had been
taken from them: and there was a resurrection of
hope, faith, life among these followers.
The transformation was one from the
hopelessness in their darkest most cowardly mo-
ment, to a presence of the Person who had given up
every right to the power of God that was his. This
m an had emptied himself of that power and had
become a carpenter’s son from the backwoods town
of Nazareth. His name was Jesus son of Joseph, or
so everyone thought. He was Son of God.
The transformation was seen when this man

Jesus defeated the dark onerous, malevolent power
of death. His tombtave was empty. Rumors spread
through the city faster than wildfire The soldiers
had been powerless, angels in dazzling array had
moved the gigantic stone covering the mouth of the
cave, the heartsick women who had been devoted
to Jesus had breathlessly burst in on the sleep weary
disciples with the words that shocked, amazed,
erupted in new and unquenchable hope. HE IS
Yes, a not so subtle change was taking placg
again. The hopeless were filled with hope. The power
of merciless death had been defeated by one who
could sey, “I am the resurrection and the life.”
Easter articles are written to reinforce the joyful
faith of the people of God. They are those who
share the transforming power of Jesus death and
Easter articles are written more importantly to
tell a suffering people who are ruled ruthlessly by
tyrannts of hopelessness and oppression, that there
is a resurrection from the darkness that imprisons
us. The sufferer feels his/her pain most keenly when
they believe themselves to be alone. Here is the
Good News. Jesus walked the same road; rejection,
mockery, shallow loyalty, betrayal; the whole world
at one moment for him, now against Him; then
death. You see , He has been in our footsteps. He
has conquered. He has risen. He rules now in power
so that we might believe and live.!
He would say to us that this same power and life
is for us today! “I am the resurrection and the life.”
