football games, but we handled them the best we know
"We had good cooperation from the school system
and local fire departments and the city. We extracted a
couple out for drinking and had one small fight, but
anytime you go tc a ballgame you're going to have a
couple of fights. The crowd was extremely controlled.
Their temperament was very good and it was just one
of the best ballgames I've seen in many, many years."
KMHS Principal Jackie Lavender praised the police
department, saying the officers "really went all out to
make everybody feel safe and secure."
Mrs. Lavender said all the rumors leading up to the
game were unfortunate, but if anything good came
from it it was that it made school officials take a look
at the lighting situation at the ball field.

"We (school officials) talked about it at the game
Friday night and again at the soccer game last night,"
she said. "The more lights we have the better and we're
going to leave the baseball stadium lights on at future
home games. It costs a pile of money but it really
lights up the whole back side of the stadium and that's
where our problems always are."
Mrs. Lavender said the school probably will install
some additional security lights also.
Although she heard all the rumors, Mrs. Lavender
said she never received any threatening phone calls
and, to her knowledge, no one else associated with the
football program did either, including the player who
reportedly had a threatening note attached to his car. In
fact, Mrs. Lavender and other school and law enforce-
ment officials met with the player and he assured them
he had not received such a threat and did not expect
Nonetheless, school and police officials were wise
to take the extra precautions. As for threats and ru-
mors, we'd hope that those responsible would let all

knowing that much about it and had to pay them to set it up for me. It's
cost $10,000 so far and they're not through yet."
The tent is 140 feet wide and 220 feet long. Reynolds bought 2,800
chairs and Pike gave him 300.
"We can seat 3,000 people comfortably but he said they've had as many
as 5,000 in the tent with people standing up," Reynolds said. "The tent is
10 years old but the life of it is 100 years. It's inflammable and I don't in-
tend to move it."
Next weekend's revival will bring a lot of people and business to Kings
Mountain, Reynolds said. The evangelistic team has already booked 10
rooms at a local hotel.
Right now, Reynolds said, he's in the "thinking" stages of what to book
at the tent.
"I would think it would be ideal for gospel singings and I'm sure some
evangelists would want to use it," he said. "That would be my first choice
because the man (Pike) would want to see it continued used for that.
"He sold it to me reasonably,” Reynolds added. "We could have some
bluegrass festivals and maybe bring some talent down from Nashville. I
have some name quartets in mind and we have a lot of good local talent

ere that could use it."
Reynolds said he recently returned from a real estate convention in
Myrtle Beach and is considering bringing the comedy act that performed
there to Kings Mountain.
Reynolds said he believes he can book some good entertainment groups
and "make some money" with the property, as well as making it available
for religious activities.
“In Charlotte you'll pay $20 for a ticket and $3 for parking" for similar
events, he said. "I figure I can charge $5 for the ticket and $1 for parking
and seat 3,000 people and still make money."
Reynolds said he won't allow alcoholic beverages on the premises and
has hired security guards to look after the property at night.
"We're going to start it off right and keep it right," he said. "If we have
activities that young people are involved in, if they are not 18 years old
their parents will have to be with them." :
Admission to next week's crusade is free.
"People tell me that Rev. Pike does not take up a collection,” Reynolds
said. "People that know him and have heard him in person and on TV do-
nate money to him. He used to go overseas and had two ships of his own
that he sailed in. He has his own plane, his own bank and has a school that
goes to the ninth grade." :
