The meeting will be held in the Administrative Building Boardroom. CSD2 Breakfast Program All schools in Clarendon District 2 will offer a free, nutritious breakfast for all students in the coming school year. For parents with busy schedules, it can be hard to make sure that kids are eating a healthy breakfast before they go to school in the morning. Sometimes children aren't hungry right after waking up, and it's hard to find food they like to eat that is also healthy. Also, some kids refuse breakfast at home but are hungry when they arrive at school. For more information, contact Mary Graham, Director of Food Services, at 435-4435. By k.

VeNGeroWsky Clarendon County Archivist Nancy Cave was recently appointed to the county's Election Commission, a nonpartisan organization that monitors voting countywide. Cave has served as a pollster in county elections in the last five years and will be replacing Diane McCord, who retired before her four-year term was up. There are five county election commissioners who are in charge of holding the primaries and the general election for county positions, as well as the elections for the Town of Summerton, and Clarendon School District 3. The commission also helps out with city and town elections as needed. Cave was recommended for the position by Clarendon County Republican Party Chairman Moye Graham and affirmed by Rep. Murrell Smith, Rep. Kevin Johnson and Senator John Land. "Mrs. Cave was selected because of her willingness to work so hard as poll manager in the past and her expressed willingness to work for the election commission," Football & Cheerleading Registration for the Clarendon County Recreation Department Youth Football/Cheerleading Program will be held now through Aug. 12, at the Recreation office, located at 3057 Raccoon Road in Manning.

Stokes Craven Owner Dennis Craven and the Carolina's Ford Regional Manager Donna Buss presented a check for $4,960 for the school and Association's participation Ford's recent "Drive One 4UR School" promotion. Stokes Craven Controller John Flack and General Sales Manager Mike Mazell presented a check on behalf of the employees for $1,040 to bring the total contribution to $6,000. The donation will be used to furnish two classrooms in the new St. Paul Elementary School, scheduled to open this fall. "When I heard about the St. Paul project and then saw that Ford had this promotion I knew it would be a perfect match," Craven said. Craven contacted CSD1 Superintendant Dr. Rose Wilder, who discussed the opportunity with SBAA South Carolina Chapter President Bea Rivers and the project took off. "I talked to Ms. Rivers about the proposal at (Summerton) Rotary one morning," Wilder said. "Ms. Rivers said, `I'll take care of it' and that was all it took.'" Rivers contacted the Alumni Association and the project took flight. Ford agreed to donate $20, up to $6,000, for each qualified test drive of a vehicle. There could only be one driver per household and a brief survey must be filled out. Craven donated food, test cars and employees to help with the project. The school district and the Alumni Association recruited volunteers and drivers and an entire Saturday in May was devoted to the cause. More than 300 drivers came out to support the endeavor. And the SBHS Band entertained the crowd. When the day was done and the results tallied, 248 of the test drives qualified. "That left us short of our goal," Craven said. "John (Flack), Mike (Mazell) and the employees got together and made up the difference so we could donate the entire $6,000." "This is a perfect example of how public and private partnerships should work," S.C. Representative Kevin Johnson said. "My wife and I were one of the `one per household' rule breakers, but we both wanted to test drive a new car!" "When we decided we needed to build the new elementary school, our board and the administration decided that we wanted to relieve the taxpayers of some of the burden (of paying for furnishings)," Wilder said. "The Alumni Association's furniture project was a great way to do that." The Alumni Association is about halfway to their goal and still needs your help. Contributions can be made through pledges or donations and are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to: Scott's Branch Alumni Association (SBAA), P.O. Box 1374, Summerton, S.C. 29148. CitizenNews The Stokes Craven Ford family, members of the Scott's Branch Alumni Association and Clarendon School District 1 along with community leaders celebrate a successful fundraiser for St. Paul Elementary School. Two classrooms will be furnished as an end result. ChuCk Waters/ClarendonCitizen Water was made possible through grants and loans from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Residents living along Hwy. 260 are still eligible to sign up, with a $950 connection fee, plus the cost of a service pipe that will run from the home to the main line, according to Dennis. Once construction is complete, the cost would be $2,000 to connect, plus the cost of the service line. In 10 phases, the county intends to take public water south on Hwy. 260 and to nearby communities including Bloomville, Davis Station and Potato Creek. Dennis said that the average household on the system would pay about $38$40 a month for water. This is based on a household of 3.4 people using 5,500 gallons per month according to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. The county has set their minimum water rates at $25.75 for 0-3,000 gallons per month and $6.25 per additional 1,000 gallons per month. Dennis said that the benefit of people signing up for this water is consistent quality and quantity of water. "There are spots in the county where wells are really shallow, about 80-100 feet," he said. "There is also organic contamination in some of these areas which frompage1 can make the water smell." Dennis said that 148 fire hydrants are going to be installed in Phase I and the availability of hydrants could bring a potential reduction in home insurance rates, one year after the phase is completed. Promoted Jonathan Jones was promoted to Deputy Chief, Michael Johnson Jr. was promoted to Captain and Lee Mahoney was promoted to Lieutenant. Clarendon County Fire Chief Frances Richbourg is very happy with the exceptional work the firefighters have done and said they each deserve high praises. She said they all displayed great leadership traits and qualities that will lead the department into a brighter future. "(Great leaders) are frequently hard to come by," she said. "It became necessary to have officers oversee all ends of the county and make sure that we were consistent across the board." Two of the biggest promotions were Jones and Johnson. Jones was promoted to Deputy Chief which is almost at the top of the totem poll. He appreciates the new honor bestowed upon him and is eager to help take charge of the department. "I'm happy Chief Richbourg has that kind of faith and trust in me," he said. "I'm proud of the recognition given thus far." Johnson was promoted to Captain and he said it is a dream that is now a reality. He said it is just a single step of many in a journey to being part of a great firefighting family. He brings a Firefighter of the Year award along with an Officer of the Year. "It means your training and experience are paying off," Johnson said. "It earns respect. I have furthered my career with training and experience with getting to the next level." Johnson said experience is a great tool; however, following the examples of others has allowed him to learn so much more and gain an understanding of what it takes to be a leader. One man he has followed for a long time is friend, fellow firefighter and promotee Jonathan Jones. "Jonathan is my right hand," he said. "I try to mirror a lot of his actions. He is very caring, devoted and has great integrity. He's the kind of person I strive to be like." Johnson said working with new Lieutenants Ward and Mahoney is something he is really excited about. Their knowledge and eagerness is something that will only benefit the department for the good, said Johnson. "I want to take this department to its next level," he said. "I want to help the department grow in a positive way. I know we have top notch training here. We go outside of our area to always bring in better training for our people and ourselves. If I keep training to a high standard, it will help everybody. I want to be the safest department we can be frompage1 and the most efficient." Johnson said the most important aspect of his success is not just his work ethic, but the family that supports him at the station and home. He said their continuous, never ending encouragement has given him the strength to fight the flames. "We've got a great family here," he said. "Without a great family, this would have never happened. I thank God every day for what He's blessed me with." Cave said Senator John Land, who signed off on her nomination, which was also approved by Governor Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mark Hammond. The county commission prepares ballots and voting machines, compiles and certifies results, and sends the final tallies to the state election commission, said Clarendon County Election Commission Chair Bobbie Reaves. The county election committee hires pollsters to monitor voting booths, and also hires a "rover," a person who is on call to go to a polling station if there is a glitch, such as a dead battery in a voting machine. "Our goal is to put on a good fair election," said Reaves. Reaves said that all commissioners are required to get certified within 18 months of appointment. Cave said that she is planning to attend training soon. Cave previously served as director of the Animal Shelter of Clarendon County (now A Second Chance Animal Shelter). She also worked for the frompage1 Department of the Navy as a manager analyst and human resource specialist in Moncks Corner, before moving to the county 20 years ago. Reaves says that the election commission office has another vacancy that needs to be filled soon with the retirement of Manning City Administrator Pat Goodwin from the commission.

Rotary Stewart said, "We were looking for another project since our Gala venue was no longer available. As program chairman, Alfred took charge and challenged club members. He worked with the Lake Marion group to coordinate the magic show at Weldon and it became our most successful fund raiser." Kelley said he was very humbled. "I was very surprised and feel very honored," he said. "I don't think I've ever been more surprised." Kelley has been a Rotarian for about four years. Stewart said that the magic show brought about 900 people to Weldon Auditorium and that the club received excellent reviews of the event. "Thanks to the project, we will have the funds to put back into the community on various Rotary projects, and we owe the success to Alfred who is a true example of the Rotary motto, `Service before Self.'" frompage1 Rotarian since 2008. "This is a great group of people and I really enjoy working with them." Amy Land will assume the helm for the 2011-2012 year in the Manning Rotary. She has been a member since 2006. Land said that she was looking forward to the opportunity to carry on the Manning Rotary's long tradition of service to the community. "I plan on continuing existing projects such as the Dictionary Project and the literacy night event at the Manning Early Childhood Center," she said. "I also hope to increase our club's impact on our international project of eradicating polio worldwide." Land said another important goal for her and every club president is to increase the club's membership. "More manpower means more service," she said. "And that's what Rotary is all about."

Amy Land Bea Rivers will wield the gavel as she becomes the sixth president of the Summerton service organization. Rivers is a charter member of the club. "We want, of course, to maintain and grow our membership base," she said. "We want to keep our focus on our literacy and education projects." Rivers said the club's strongest asset is its membership. "We have so many outstanding members in our club and I hope to find a way to honor them and their service to Clarendon County." Bea Rivers At the Manning Club's banquet outgoing president Tod Graham presented the Rotarian of the Year award to Badge Baker. "We have had a great Rotary year," Graham said at the event held at the Wyboo Meeting Center. "Every time I needed something done or handled, Badge was right there, ready and eager to help out," Graham added. "Whether it was the lobster feast, a truck pull, or literacy night, Badge was faithful in his service." "I was quite surprised and very honored," said Baker, who has been a Manning HospitalBoardMeetings Clarendon Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees meets at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month in the hospital's Board Room, 10 Hospital St., Manning.

Originally from Ukraine, I had already lived in the U.S. for four years (in Philadelphia) and I thought that I knew real American culture. As it turned out, I was in for a lesson � a lesson of tradition, hospitality and natural beauty. I had to learn fast to say "yes sir" and "yes ma'am," in school at Laurence Manning Academy and Manning High School, where even the teachers would address the students by those titles. I very quickly became accustomed to these titles of respect as well as the commonly used (and very convenient) word "y'all," which I now find myself repeatedly using. I also became spoiled. Spoiled by the hospitality of the people from this county, where everyone is always willing to give you a hand. Even if you are a complete stranger. I fell in love with the natural beauty of Clarendon County. The lake, the tall pine trees, the endless fields of farmland all reminded me of my uncle's town in Ukraine where I would go to visit every summer. It very quickly began to feel as though I was home here, surrounded by a large famI had also always been shy in school. That all changed with Mrs. Walker's Speech and Drama class. Having a starring role in her play was something that made me come out of my shell and made me fall in love with theater. And I was sure then that that is what I wanted to do. Everything changed, though, on that one day after school when my dad suggested stopping by the local paper to ask about a summer job. I remember that day six years ago when I walked into the paper and said "I think I'm interested in being a journalist; do you have any summer jobs available?" I left my name and number with reporter Mike Gellatly, and that same afternoon Managing Editor Cathy Gilbert (or Ms. Cathy as I call her) called me and asked me to come in for an interview. I remember her asking me "What grade do you have in English?" "A B plus," I said nervously. She and Publisher Cleve Dowell (Mr. Cleve) gave me an opportunity to see if I had the reporting blood in me. I started doing a weekly questionnaire column, called Voice of the People, where we would ask five people questions on a controversial topic and publish their response along with their name and photo. When I was given the opportunity to write my first article, I knew that this is what I wanted to do as a career. Every summer after my studies at the College of Charleston (where I majored in media studies communication), I came back to the paper to gain more experience as a parttime reporter. Last summer I came back as a full-time reporter and learned how to manage writing half a dozen articles per week. Citizen viewpoint Citizen Quote "AppreciAtion is A wonderful thing: it mAkes whAt is excellent in others belong to us As well" � Voltaire This past year, while working on my graduate degree in print journalism at American University in Washington, D.C., I was given the opportunity to write news articles as an intern for USA TODAY. However, as much as I enjoyed writing for a national newspaper, I realized that I really love community reporting. I really believe that our newspaper can make a difference in Clarendon County, and I am hoping to make the citizens of this community informed on things that are most important to them ... one article at a time. If you have a story idea or an issue that you would like to have addressed in our newspaper please contact me at kv@ clarendoncitizen.com. Or stop by 8 North Brooks St. some time, and we can chat in person. Thank you and happy reading. K. Vengerowsky KV@ClarendonCitizen.com News Editor ily of 35,000 citizens that had accepted my family and me. My love of writing started in school. My English teachers at LMA, Mrs. Dinah Swygert, Mrs. Lisa Patrick, Mrs. Carolyn Coffey and Mrs. Inger Walker, always encouraged my passion and were there to offer help when I most needed it. I remember my first writing accomplishment in Mrs. Patrick's eighth grade class. Our major project for the year was to write a research paper on a famous Confederate general, which would be judged by the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. I received third place. Looking back on it now does not seem like a major accomplishment, but at the time, it was something that propelled me to write further. Knowledge Power...

They were facing an 0-2 record against Conway Post 111 in the first round of the playoffs. They played Friday night in what could have been an elimination game but battled back and routed Post 111, 15-3. Following was an 8-3 victory Saturday night and a 14-6 win Sunday evening. They corrected the ship and despite facing an elimi- Post 68 wins over Conway; advances to 2nd round nation game, they battled back and won the series 3-2. In these last three games, they played some of their best ball of the year, according to Head Coach G.G. Cutter. "We wanted to get by the first round and hopefully play again," Cutter said. "We said `Relax and play your game. Don't wait for somebody else to do it, you do it.' I think things began to gel." Manning opened the series with a loss in a 16-14 slugfest, July 5. Cutter said they lost the game on the defensive side while committing 10 errors. "It was probably the worst defensive game we've played all year long," said Cutter. "It was just one of those game where we hit the ball well, but defensively we gave them too many easy scores." The loss put them at 0-1 to start the series. On July 7, Manning-Santee returned to their home field and again lost to Post 111, 8-7 in 10 innings. Manning had its chance to win with men on base. They had men on second and third base with no outs, but groundouts and easy defensive plays for Conway shut the door on Manning's hopes. "We just didn't know how to win," said Cutter. "Unless you know how to win the ballgame, you'll do just what we did." On Friday, July 8, Manning traveled to Conway in the series' third game. Despite the 0-2 mark, they pounded out 19 hits and three homeruns en route to a 15-3 blowout. The win was ManningSantee's first of the post season and it forced a game four. On Saturday, July 9, Manning came away with an 8-3 win. Zan Beasley started on the mound and threw seven quality innings allowing two runs, eight hits, three strikeouts and two walks. Shuler Ward came in to relieve and also threw three effective innings allowing one run, two hits, one strikeout and one walk. Jamal Keels led in hitting as he went two-for-five with a homerun and three RBIs. Corey Brown followed going two-for-three; Zach Graham went one-for-three with a double and two RBIs while Heath Smith and Douglas Ard each had doubles. On Sunday, July 10, Manning traveled to Conway for a winner-take-all deciding game. The game was all Manning as they won 14-6 in decisive fashion. "I believe Conway was over confident after the first two," Cutter said. Kevin Cox started on the mound but was pulled after three innings. He allowed five runs, five hits, two strikeouts and two walks. Austin Smith came in and Citizen Sports threw the final six innings allowing just one run, four hits, one strikeout and three walks. Jack Martin was the leading batter as he went threefor-six with two RBIs. Mike Keels went two-forsix with three RBIs, Corey Brown went two-for-five with a homerun and two RBIs. Heath Smith hit a homerun, Shuler Ward went twofor-five with three RBIs and Zach Graham went three-forfive also with a homerun. In the entire series, Manning accumulated seven homeruns. "We hit the ball extremely well on Sunday," Cutter said. Manning-Santee moved into the second round of the playoffs. They are facing the Sumter P-15s in another best-offive series that began Tuesday. If they win the series, they will enter the third round. However if they lose, they can still advance. If Goose Creek wins out, Manning will battle three other losers for a spot in a loser's bracket.

There simply seems to be more flounder available when searching the shallows with spotlights at night. On past trips this has proven to be the case. But one thing is for certain ... anytime I can go flounder gigging, it's a good time, especially when we can load up on these great eating fish. Recently we had such an opportunity, and it was on the recent dark moon. I had the opportunity to go with my buddy, Mike Cox. Not only was it a dark moon, but the low tide was at 2:30 a.m. which meant fewer other giggers would be out late trying to gig, especially on a weekday night. "You don't have to be crazy to be a flounder gigger, but it helps get you through the long night," Cox said. The dark moon and late low tide apparently did keep most others off the water; we saw a couple but they were in the distance and not really a factor in our gigging success. Fortunately, Mike knows the waters well and had some shallow banks that others seldom work and we started seeing and gigging flounder on a regular basis as soon as we began. Flounder gigging is sometimes passed over or not considered as a potential method of catching fish for saltwater anglers. It is actually an extremely effective way to load up on some of the best tasting seafood along the South Carolina coast. Flounder are shallow water feeders, especially at night. During the nocturnal hours the fish will move very shallow near the waters edge, often in mere inches of water and settle in on the bottom to ambush their forage as it swims by. Simply described, all you do is rig lights on your boat and pole along and gig the flounder when you spot them. Perhaps a bit oversimplified, but the process is not difficult. In addition to being fun and a great way to beat the summer heat by fishing at night, you really get to enjoy the bounty of our natural resources along our coast. Flounder are among my favorite tasting fish and are great any way you want to prepare them. Big ones can even be cooked on the grill for a really special treat. The keys to flounder gigging success are easy, but crucial. First, you must have a good lighting system. Mike has a big generator and uses two powerful 500 watt lights. You can get by with batteries and 100 watt, 12-volt bulbs, but it is more difficult to see the fish. Light is measured in lumens and the more you've got working for you, the better you can see. In fact, we used to get by with smaller lights, but more light is far superior if you are serious about the sport. It allows you to see the bottom more clearly and further out. The gigs can be bought or homemade. Most are usually about 10-foot long and can be made simply from a closet rod, although both aluminum and fiberglass poles are good, too. One commercial gig is the B&M model which is carbon steel. The advantage is it stays very sharp and has very aggressive barbs, which help hold the fish. The downside is that it will rust in continued saltwater use. Sea Striker makes a stainless gig and while it won't rust, it has less aggressive barbs. Plus, with continued use of poling the boat in the sand and shells, the stainless steel points will become blunted. Cox makes his own gigs and they're the best I've seen or used. He suggests looking for flounder on shell banks and sand, mud or mixed sand and shell bottoms. The fish will sometimes, especially on a rising tide, get into inches of water and they will generally face into the current. If it's deep enough to float your boat it is probably deep enough to gig a flounder. Key your efforts on seeing fish of course, but if there are fresh flounder beds, simple imprints in the sand or bottom that have the form of a flounder, work that particular area hard. Also, forage is crucial; flounder will not be there unless they have something to eat. Cox recommends you gig the fish in the head because that's the only real skeletal structure in the fish and the best place to hold the fish on the gig while you lift it out of the water. A key is to not touch them with the gig. They will likely stay right there while you position the boat. Sometimes we see one just as we've gone past it and if we don't make too much Citizen Wildlife Mike Cox with flounder that he and the author gigged recently near McCleallanville. noise, we can move the boat back and still gig the fish. The size limit on flounder is 14 inches minimum length. All that's required to gig flounder is a saltwater license. Terry Madewell/Clarendon Citizen Fishing still good for catfish, bream By Terry Madewell The overall fishing success in lakes Marion and Moultrie has been very good recently despite the hot, dry weather. The hardest part for most anglers is beating the heat so several anglers have been successful fishing early and late in the day and some have also been fishing at night. These tactics are paying off with good catches of several varieties of fish being taken. The early and late in the day largemouth bass fishing has been productive with a few really big fish being caught. The bream fishing remains good and some very good catches have been made recently. While the fish are not on the beds, they are still catchable if you spend a bit of time hunting them down. Plus, the catfishing news is still very good and some good nighttime action has been reported recently. In addition, some good fishing has occurred in some of the local rivers such as the Black and Lynches Rivers. The Santee River from below the Wilson Dam all the way down to the Hwy. 41 Bridge near Jamestown is also producing good bass, catfish and bream action. Deeper water, and current in the rivers, are key factors in fishing success for some of the species, particularly largemouth bass and catfish. Good topwater and shallow water worm fishing exists for largemouth bass early and late in the day in shallow water. Buzz baits, floating minnow imitators, floating plastic worms and popping plugs have all been effective. Once the sun begins beating down, most of the action seems to be found by The time to get flounder is here and a good nighttime trip can help you beat the summer heat and load the freezer with some of the best tasting saltwater fish in the ocean. Best Selection Best Service Best Quality DINKINS www.diNkiNsaucTioNs.coM fishing heavy cover such as brush piles or deeper water along the ledges. Some hefty fish continue to be caught in these areas on plastic worms and 3/8-ounce chartreuse spinner baits, according to most reports received. The action on catfish is still good and more anglers are now fishing at night. This method is generally very effective from now throughout the rest of the summer. Very good results with good catches of big blue catfish have been made on cut bait, both herring and shad. The big flatheads are being taken on live herring as well as other forms of live bait such as bream, perch and shiners. Good catches are also being made on the smaller channel catfish in the 2-10 pound class using night crawlers and stink baits such as Doc's Catfish Getter Dip Bait. Some anglers are drifting whole shad or herring and if the bait is fresh, they are catching both big blues and flatheads in this manner. Bream fishing is still very good using crickets or worms around some form of cover such as trees, brush, weeds or docks. Some good action is being enjoyed along the mayfly hatches as well using fly rods and popping bugs. Beetle spin spinners and other tiny lures have been effective when fished around cover. Flounder fishing is very good at the coast by rolling, as is flounder gigging. These tasty flatfish are in the shallows in good numbers right now all along the coast based on recent reports. Good action is also reported on sheepshead as well as redfish. Insurance Isn't One Size Fits All... So We Offer More! We Affordable SR22's Call today for Finance!
