But, whether I’m ready or not, you’ll be coming oti dow ti iti a couple

An Orange Bowl victory for Clemson’s Tigers, and Player of the
Game honors for the Tigers’ fullback from Kings Mountain, Kevin
A Gator Bowl win for the North Carolina Tar Heels, and a national
championship for the UNC basketball team. You might as well throw

A state 3-A basketball championship for Kings Mountain’s Moun

Carl Smith, Demetrius Goode and Terrence Blalock. Stale Coach of
the Year honors for John Blalock would be nice iiw...
An after-Christmas turnaround for Kings Mountain’s girls basket
ball team, which is struggling at the present. But, Santa, we remember
last year at this time. The girls were having their problems then, too,
but they came on strong to finish second in both the Southwestern
Conference regular season and tournament. You can do it, Santa...
A Southwestern Conference wrestling title for the young, but com

Rocking chairs for Muhammad Ali (I still prefer to call him Cassius
Clay, though) and Smokin’ Joe Tra/ier, two former heavyweight
champions who have been wa.shed up for years, but continue to em

To The Editor;
An open letter to the Kings Mountain Herald concerning Donald
J. Deal and Christopner H. Cole:
Please allow me this opportunity to express to you my sincere ap
preciation for the tremendous work that you both are doing in the
developing of the musical talents«nd abilities of our young people in
Kings Mountain. Our school system is most fortunate to have two
people with such expertise.
The musical talent as expressed in your “Winter Concert” presented
by the Kings Mounta»1t»Junior High School 8th. GrcKle Band; the
Jumor’High' 9th. Grade Band; and the Kings Mountain Senior High
School Blazer Band at the High School on December 17, 1981 was
superb. 1 cannot remember ever attending a concert more enjoyable.
Keep up the good work. 1 know that it is rewarding to see such
musical talent growing to fruition. Both of you, and the young people
in your bands, are to be commended for such a job well done.
Looking forward to your Spring concert, 1 remain
