Molly's Kids: Huntersville teenager Grace Haynes dies after 22-month battle with bone cancer
Grace’s mom and stepfather – Yvonne and Sean – live in Huntersville with her 5-year-old brother Colin. Grace’s dad, Lee, is in Lincolnton.
I spoke with Lee last night after our 11pm news. He said the whole family is hurting, but they’re appreciative of the support people are sending. He said they are all grateful so many people care.
In lieu of flowers, the family wants everyone to know they'll soon establish the “Amazing Grace Foundation” – which Grace wanted – to help local kids fighting pediatric cancer AND to raise money for pediatric cancer research. That was really important to this young girl who said not enough was being done for the type of cancer that attacked her own body. She often talked about awareness for osteosarcoma.
In honor of Grace, here’s a quick link chock-full of information on this bone cancer >> http://www.cancer.net/cancer-types/osteosarcoma-childhood

Empty Stocking Fund reaches $108376 as giving continues
That’s what Jim who died unexpectedly in early December would have wanted.
His obituary captures the milestones of a life well-lived: Born in Lincolnton, raised in Asheboro, educated at N.C. State University, worked as a textile executive and served his country in the Army. Father, grandfather, friend and colleague.
But it goes beyond that with details only a family can provide: With nicknames like “Too-Tall” and “Charming,” Jim loved to play tennis and joke with friends.
“In what is the final review, listing the vitals that familiar people already know, or ticking off accomplishments friends can recite, seems to ignore the qualities that deem on memorable – the reasons we count someone a friend,” the obituary reads. “Always gracious to others, always socially pleasing, but the most important quality was that everyone was glad to see him come in the door.”
On Monday, a $100 contribution was made to The Gazette Empty Stocking Fund in Jim’s memory. Other donations also came in on Monday, pushing the total to $108,276, another amazing year for a campaign that helps the Salvation Army provide Christmas assistance to people who have hit hard times.
Donations Monday were made:
* In honor of my grandkids – Ragan and Camryn, $50
* In memory of Dr. Gerald Arney and Dr. Marty D’Amore, from CRMC-MRI Department, $100
* In loving memory of our s... (Gaston Gazette)Dec 30, 2015
Year in Review: 2015
In January, county commissioners voted to move forward with plans to create an office complex at the site of the empty Gamble Hospital in Lincolnton.
That decision, which is expected to cost upward of $15 million, drew vocal criticism from City of Lincolnton officials, downtown Lincolnton merchants and this newspaper. Critics argued that moving county offices out of the downtown Lincolnton area would have a negative impact on other businesses because of decreased foot traffic. County officials said consolidating the location of county offices would provide a better experience for taxpayers using county services and would be more cost efficient in the long term.
Several county departments are occupying space at the facility now, and more work at the site is expected in 2016.
SBI investigates former Lincolnton Fire Department assistant chief for embezzlement
The Lincoln Times-News learned in September that the State Bureau of Investigation had opened an embezzlement investigation into allegations that Lincolnton Fire Department Assistant Chief Bill Fortenberry had stolen around $30,000 from the Lincoln County Chapter of the North Carolina Firefighters Burned Children Fund. He served as treasurer for the organization.
Fortenberry resigned from his position with the city a day after the Times-News broke the story about the investigation. In November, the SBI confirmed that it had expanded its investigation to include Fortenberry’s church, Pisgah United Methodist.
The state’s investigation into the thefts from the Burned Children Fund ended in early December and its findings were turned over to the Lincoln County district attorney’s office. Charges could be filed as early as January.
Former Lincolnton Fire Department Assistant Chief Bill Fortenberry was the subject of an SBI investigation into allegations of embezzlement from the local chapter of the Burned Children Fund.
