    Abstract:
    Shelby, the county seat of Cleveland County, is OUR STATE magazine's featured Tar Heel town of the month. The town incorporated in 1843 and was named for Colonel Isaac Shelby, a Revolutionary War soldier. The town's current population is 20,000, and in 1980, it became one of the first places to be designated a national and North Carolina Main Street Community. The town supports historic preservation. Among the structures in the historic district are a 1919 Herschell-Spillman carousel, the 1907 Cleveland County Courthouse, the 1924 Masonic Temple, and the 1916 U.S. Post Office. Other attractions include the Shelby City Park, The Cleveland County Fair, and the Rogers Theatre.

  • 4. A Whistling Work by Thompson, Neal
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    Most people whistle from time to time, but for Phyllis Heil of Hickory, whistling is a lifelong hobby. When she was four, one of her brothers gave her a whistling lesson, she has been perfecting her art ever since. She began performing publicly when someone overheard her whistling in the church basement. She has performed at funerals, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living centers, and the church choir. In 2003, she took some classes at the International Whistlers Convention in Louisburg and watched the competitions. She returned in 2004 to compete and placed third in the women's division. In 2005, she again placed third in the women's grand championship and won the Entertainer of the Year Award. She has appeared on the Jay Leno Tonight Show and has recorded two CDs of her music.
