A Laughing Matter....Deputies On Donkeys
The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department held their “Deputies on Donkeys” Part 2, a donkey basketball game, on Thursday, March 20th at Crest High School. The “Slick Sleeve Slammers” took on the “Blazing Brass”. A valiant effort was made by all the deputies who contributed their time to raise funds for the North Carolina Special OIympics. To the constant laughter and amazement of the crowd, this year’s winning team was the “Slick Sleeve Slammers”. As an honorary gesture, the game could only begin after Mayor Stan Anthony and Sheriff Alan Norman “kissed a donkey”. The program netted a total of $5924.00 for the Special Olympics, but money is still coming in and the final amount should be well over $6000. 
Special guests, Cleveland County Sheriff, Alan Norman and Shelby Mayor, Stan Anthony give a traditional “kiss of thanks” to begin the “Deputies On Donkeys” basketball game. Major Gary Gold was entrusted to hold the donkey at bay as the two got a smooch.
