KINGS MOUNTAIN - When Chester the deer showed up on Lincoln County Property Valuation Administrator David Gambrel's property a few weeks ago, Gambrel knew immediately something wasn't right about his behavior. "I see deer everywhere," Gambrel said. "But I've never had one come up to you like this. " Chester, given the name by Gambrel's neighbor because he limps like Chester on the TV show "Gunsmoke," appeared to be tame. He allowed anyone to approach and pet him and welcomed the attention, Gambrel said.

Dear Editor, This letter is written in support of Mike Orberson for City Commission. We have known Mike for several years and because of his loyalty to his family, friends and the community, we know that he will bring heightened trust back to city government when he is elected as city commissioner. Mike is a very hard working businessman and because he truly understands the ups and downs of the economy, he will do extensive research before spending taxpayers' dollars.
