Konstantin VengerowsKy/Clarendon Citizen Aerial herbicide on Lake Marion I-95 north down to one lane By s harron haley Patience will be needed for travelers along Interstate 95 north over Lake Marion for the next two months while repairs to the bridge are completed. The southbound lanes of the interstate will not be impacted. During a routine inspection, bridge inspectors with the South Carolina Department of Transportation detected deterioration in the concrete decking of the northbound bridge. Travelers don't have to worry about the safety of the bridge at the present time; Santee Cooper will conduct helicopter applications of EPA-approved herbicides in Lake Marion, Sept. 1223. Lake users are asked to avoid these areas during the period to allow for unrestricted applications. On Lake Marion, areas to be treated are near or around the Santee National Wildlife Refuge, including the Bluff, Cuddo and Pine Island Units; and areas north and west of Persanti Island near Jack's Creek. The herbicide applications seek to reduce the spread of invasive weeds hydrilla and crested floating heart, and will improve public and residential shoreline access.

VengerowsKy The Clarendon County Archives and History Center has reopened for normal business hours, although one part of the construction is yet to be complete. The nearly 102-year-old building had been closed since March of 2010 for much needed renovations, according to Nancy Cave, archives director. Some of the key parts of the renovation have included the inside of the roof that had been reframed, and a new gutter system. Plywood and new sheet metal was added to the original dome. All rotten exterior has been replaced, and a new heating and air system was installed. The only part remaining to be installed is a new skylight. The original skylight was built in 1909, and needed to be replaced because it was beyond repair, Cave said. Meadors Construction of Charleston has been in charge of the renovations. The archives is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The archives is open on Saturdays by appointment only.

The money was "real" good. He was 28 years old. He didn't worry about tomorrow. He was living for today. Now, 15 years later, he can't walk across the room without resting. He relies on his ex-wife, who is now his caregiver, to cook, clean and drive him everywhere he needs to go. For a former coast-tocoast truck driver, who was accustomed to driving for hours on end, that was a hard pill to swallow. How did he get here? It started at the age of 4. "James," � it's not his real name � grew up in a dysfunctional home. His mother, 61, was an alcoholic, and still is. Along with drinking, his mother smoked a little crack from time to time. "As children, there was beer always around," he said. "I was happy just lying on the floor wasted." And that was at the tender age of 4. When most toddlers were getting the handle on drinking from cups, James was drinking beer and whatever else his mother had on hand. By the age of 20, James was using crack on a regular basis. "I had a good job," he said. "I got paid good. I owned my own rig and I drove coast to coast." While he was behind the wheel of his rig, James didn't drink or shoot up or snort. But, when that load was over and he pulled into the truck stop, that's when the drinking and partying started. "Memphis. Now Memphis had this truck stop where they'd deliver anything you wanted. If it was beer, they'd bring you beer. Anything you wanted." In 1994, James made the worst mistake of his life and he's been paying for it ever since. James and his then-wife, who is now his ex-wife and only caregiver, had fought and he moved out for a while. "The woman I was staying with was using meth. She told me the needle was clean. It wasn't. I was just being stupid. Stupid." Six years later, James was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. "One stupid decision and I have Hep C." "Me being where I was at, it was a bad life decision, a really bad decision." By late 2007, James was back living with his mother, drinking and smoking almost every night. Then one night, drunk and out of control, he took his mother's car. After three bottles of vodka, his driving ability was greatly impaired. He got into a chase with two police officers and ended up demolishing his mother's car. "My life was on the decline. I was sliding fast." "I had a Jekyll and Hyde personality." "I drank. I snorted. I smoked." "Drugs change you. They make you think you're Superman." "And, here I was in jail with no one to bail me out." "My liver started failing and fluid began building up in my chest." "I had a $100,000 bail. That was impossible to do." "I got sicker and sicker and sicker." "Then one day, they released me. They didn't want the financial responsibility of my medical bills." By this time, James, who was once a robust fellow, who enjoyed cutting his own grass, doing jobs outside and washing his own car, couldn't walk across a room without stopping to rest. It was his ex-wife, who he turned to for help. "When we got married, I was older than he was," she said with a laugh. "People said he'll have to take care of you when you get old. It's so ironic. I'm the one taking care of him." "Jane" � not her real name either � said it's so sad to see James as he is today. "He's lost some of his IQ. It's like he has Alzheimer's at times." Jane described her exhusband as energetic, a hard worker who had a good future. "He was so talented mechanically," she said. "He could build anything." "Now I'm taking care of a 43-year-old invalid." For the past three years, James has been clean. No booze. No crack. No meth. No illegal drugs. James said he's fought to be classified as disabled so he could qualify for medical assistance. Not only is his liver failing, the doctors have found he has a hole in his heart. He had to have surgery before the doctors would even consider putting him on a transplant list. He's slowly recovering from heart surgery and awaits the day he'll be put on the transplant list. "You know it's really hard mentally knowing that I'm CitizenNews "James" is growing weaker every day as he waits to be placed on a liver transplant list. The recovering 43-year-old drug addict and alcoholic said no high he ever had was worth the agony he's living today. waiting on someone to die so that I can live," he said. "The doctors told me that with the holidays coming up I might get my transplant." "When you're on drugs, you don't think about the consequences of your actions," he said. "Here I am today, waiting on someone to die, so that I can live. It's so sad." James said he hopes he has the strength to live long enough for a transplant. "It's so frustrating. I was a hands-on type of person and now I have to have someone do everything for me." "I'm 43 years old and I'm in a hospital bed." "The best time of my life was when I was a teenager," he said. "I was innocent back then." "I know I drank at 4, but I always wanted to be a normal kid." "When I was growing up, if we didn't have food in the house, we'd eat dog biscuits." Their dysfunctional family scarred James' brother as well. "He has mental problems," James said. "He has lots of mental issues today." Living as an invalid at the young age of 43, James said he can only hope that the transplant, if he lives to have it, will give him half the strength he used to have. "I know I'll never be my old self." "If I could teach young people one thing today, I'd tell them to look at me. This is what you could be like. Drinking, smoking, meth may seem like fun, but you could be me 10 years, 20 years, 30 years from now. "You could be like me � waiting on someone to die, so that you can live." Eitor's Note: September is National Recovery Month. "We are excited to celebrate on a local level the recovery of so many people in Clarendon County who are now leading productive lives and who are back together with their families as a result of their treatment," said Ann Kirven, Chief Executive Officer of Clarendon Behavioral Health Services. "We saw 443 clients in 2011. Each dollar invested in treatment services saves taxpayers $7.46 in costs associated with incarceration, hospitalization, drug-related crimes and other societal problems. Treatment works, and Clarendon Behavioral Health Services is proud to have played a part in the recovery of so many of our local citizens." Sharron haley/ClarendonCitizen 9/11 Chairman Dwight Stewart, Rep. Kevin Johnson, Sen. John C. Land. Burgess Sprott sang "God Bless America" and Karen Hilton sang the national anthem. The Rev. Dr. George P. Windley Sr. offered a prayer, and the Rev. Paul Hutchinson gave the benediction. A special ceremony was also held at St. Matthias Episcopal Church in Summerton. St. Matthias holds a special ceremony every year, on the anniversary of 9/11, honoring local fire fighters, law enforcement officers, emergency medical personnel and dispatchers. Father David Thurlow gave a sermon on the importance of never forgetting the tragedy of 9/11. The folks of New Zion remembered 9/11 Sunday afternoon with dozens of American flags proudly waving in the afternoon breeze. On Salem Road, New Zion Methodist Church hosted a 9/11 Community Service with individuals from New Zion and its surrounding communities in attendance. Music played a big role in the service with the New Zion Children's Choir and Trinity and New UMC Choirs participating. Jay Johnson ended the service with Alan Jackson's heart wrenching "Where Were You (The Day The World Stopped Turning)." Five pastors participated in the program. New Zion's pastor, the Rev. Gregg Scott Varner gave the evening's message. The Rev. Richard Blank led those in attendance in singing "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God." The Rev. Carl Lavendar read Scripture from Matthew and Acts. The Rev. Todd Parrish delivered a prayer. The Rev. Murray Gibbons gave special recognition to those in the audience who served in the military, fire departments, law enforcement, emergency personnel and public service and the Rev. Pat Goodwin assisted with a special video presentation. Varner, with his voice breaking with emotion at times, recounted his experi- frompage1 ences on 9/11. "The acts of heroism that day will likely never be equaled," he said. "The heroes in the towers, the firefighters, law enforcement ... the images of that day I am sure will haunt us the rest of our lives. "Sometimes bad things happen to good people." I-95 ginning Monday, Sept. 12, and lasting until around Nov. 16. A concrete barrier wall will be in place and speeds along that two-mile stretch will be reduced from 70 mph to 45 mph. Troopers with the South Carolina Highway Patrol will be strictly enforcing the speed limit inside the two-mile work zone. The troopers will also be heavily patrolling the interstate after the work zone to make sure motorists are driving responsibly. Oversized and overweight loads will need to find an alternative route over the lake. SCDOT suggests using Interstate 26 West to Interstate 77 North then Interstate 20 East back to I-95 outside Florence. Loads wider than 8.5 feet will need to detour around the construction. Those trucks will have a marked detour route from I-95 exit 86A to I-26 East to U.S. 78 exit 205B to frompage1 U.S. 52 to S.C. 375 to U.S. 521 and I-95 in Alcolu.

"Leroy followed his sister into the bedroom and came out with one stab wound to the chest. He col- frompage1 lapsed at the front door."

Since I first moved here, 19 years ago, the renovation of Weldon Auditorium and the development of a cultural complex has been on the radar of many of Clarendon leaders. Hospital CEO Ed Frye used to complain about a "lack of a social infrastructure." He worried, and rightly so, that the lack of cultural events, fine dining and other social venues was causing people to take their hard earned money to other locales, bolstering those tax bases instead of our own. That lack, he noted, made it difficult to attract the best and the brightest of medical professionals. So a little more than a year ago, Clarendon County inaugurated Weldon Auditorium with a packed schedule of everything from national touring acts to gospel concerts, from dance recitals to graduation ceremonies. If you build a cultural venue and nobody comes, do we really have culture? to see and do. I'm sure they would still be happy to hear if you had a unique request for something. They tried movie nights for families and no one showed up. Can you believe that? And they were cheap. Not first run, but not that old either. And you didn't have to haul the family to Sumter or Florence to enjoy a great night out. But nobody came. A nationally known magic act will be here on Sept. 16, and when I last checked, they had only sold 70 tickets. And these people, The Spencer's, are giving two complete days to the community as part of the outreach program that has been designed to give added value to every appearance. The Spencers will be working with local physical and occupational therapists to teach their magic as a way of building confidence and improving motor skills with their patients. Then they will make a special appearance for the consumers of the Disabilities and Special Needs board. This is in addition to their Friday night performance. Local merchants at the Baymont Inn and Donna's House have donated lodging and gift baskets for all the touring acts that come here. Their support is invalu- Citizen Informed Citizen Quote "Culture doesn't know boundaries. art is the one thing that Crosses every boundary, every border, baCk and forth." ing opportunity? We are blessed to have such a facility. Let it be a blessing to you as well. Cathy Gilbert News@ClarendonCitizen.com Contributing Editor That remains to be seen, but the citizens of Clarendon County are not supporting this treasure we have erected in the way it should be. I don't know what the problem is. The ticket prices certainly aren't free, but compared to many other venues, they are extremely affordable. The acts that are appearing at Weldon certainly afford something for everyone. Not everything on this year's roster appeals to me, nor do I expect it to. But there are certainly more than half a dozen acts that really, really do. We are always hearing about there not being enough to do around here. How can that be? What seems to be missing in your mind? The staff at Weldon did extensive surveying to discern what people wanted �Ariel Dorfman able and saves the county a bucket of money.

Dear Editor: I stopped at a convenience store in Manning to buy gas and used my Exxon Mobile card and was charged more than the posted price. I am very disappointed with the policy to charge more than the advertised price! I also have another gas company card and I will now use that station as they are located across the road from this business and do NOT charge more per gallon when using a credit card. This is not a good business practice and I hope this business will honor and charge the posted price per gallon when someone uses their branded gas credit card. Sincerely, John Mathis Manning, S.C. A lot of parents are not able to afford these things due to other incurred expenses, the economy, unemployment, etc. The organization helped to defray some of the parents' expenses. When my family attended the event, we did not know what to expect other than a few school items to be administered. We received far more in return. Families received encouragement through words and song, students picked up their school supplies in a book bag followed by selecting a meal and beverage in a short time span before proceeding outdoors. As I observed people coming out of the building, I saw smiles on both students and parents as they observed the book bags and the school supplies within them. Their comments were words of appreciation. My heart was full. The organization's act of kindness shows that they care for the community and that they are willing to invest in our kids, our future leaders. Sincerely, Jackie F. Wilson Manning, S.C. Caring hearts serve the kids ... Dear Editor: On Aug. 12, the National Council of Negro Women provided a "Back to School Bash," and a Flu Shot Clinic.

DuBose Career and Technology Center for assistance. Tscharner Lord, curriculum coach at MPS, needed the bright yellow signs to let students know they were entering a "Quiet Zone." There was one problem. The signs couldn't be permanent. They needed to be mobile. F.E. DuBose came to the rescue. The center's Carpentry 2 students under the guidance of instructor Mike Griffin crafted the much needed signs for MPS. Measuring twice, cutting once, pounding in a few nails, brushing on some black and yellow paint and MPS had signs they could move around as needed. "Mike Griffin loves seeing his students involved and F.E. DuBose students come to the aid of MPS using skills that have been taught," said F.E. DuBose director, Susan Anderson. "Students need to be proud of their work no matter how big or small the task may be." Travis Bodenheimer, Trenton Durrence and Roger Shelton from Phoenix High School teamed with Michael Pearson from East Clarendon High School to get the job done. "These young men had fun with this small project," Anderson said, "and look forward to delivering them in person." FED's Carpentry 1 and 2 classes are offered to all 11th grade students in Clarendon County. For more information on the carpentry classes or other classes offered at the F.E.

She was just thankful to be alive. Brown, a SBHS alumnus, had factor-VIII deficiency, also known as classic hemophilia, a deficiency in which one of the proteins needed to form blood clots is missing or reduced. Doctors told her family members that she might not be able to survive. Her body could not stop bleeding after she got a minor bruise on her leg, blood clots in both her arm and leg that resulted in their amputation. But "Mrs. Brown" did make it, and 11 years later she is healthy, has four children, a loving husband, and several hundred students who have studied under her tutelage. "Mrs. Brown is smart, very competent, and one of the best teachers I've Brown is an inspiration for students, community ever had in my time here," said Matthew Ellsworth, an eighth grader in her English class. After coming out of the hospital, Brown went through 30 days of intense therapy at a rehabilitation facility. Today, besides being a teacher, she still does all of the regular household chores, drives her sons to football practice and lives her life as before. "I went through therapy where they retaught me to do everything without an arm and a leg," Brown said. "The only thing I can't do that I could do before is walk." Brown said that the hardest part for her was learning how to write with her left hand. But even that she has done beautifully and now teaches her English students the perfection of writing in cursive. "I was hired here after having lost an arm and a leg, but no one has treated me differently because of my situation," she said. "I am treated as a professional, not someone with a disability." Brown was named Clarendon School District 1 teacher of the year several years ago, and was also a WLTX Columbia teacher of the week in 2007. She received her degree from Benedict College in Columbia, and has been teaching at SBHS since 2003. As for sharing her story with others, Brown said that she has only done so on several occasions. She said that she is just thankful to be alive, to have a loving husband, and her children. "I like to look at it this way � it could always be worse," she said. Brown said that she tells her students to not worry about yesterday, but live the day according to what they can accomplish in the present moment. "To me it's a choice; everything is a choice," she said. "I choose to look at the positive things in life. I have a family that loves me, students who respect me, and Citizen News Detrice Brown answers a question for Matthew Ellsworth, an eighth grader in her English class at Scott's Branch Middle and High School. Brown has overcome physical obstacles to become an award-winning teacher. I'm still better off than some other people." Brown said that everyone has a purpose in life, and she has found hers � teaching. Brown is happily married to husband Desmond, and they have four children, Deidre, Desmond Jr., Devin and Abraham.

"Our guys played hard," said ECHS varsity head football coach Dwayne Howell after Friday's loss to Lakewood in Sumter. "I'm proud of our guys. They kept coming back." Howell said execution hurt the Wolverines. In one of the called back touchdowns, Howell said his team didn't get set on time. In the other called back touchdown, ECHS quarterback Carlos Hickson was over the line of scrimmage when he threw for the score. "It's a game of inches," Howell said. "He lost tonight by inches." Howell praised Lakewood's quarterback, who had EC loses to Lakewood, MHS/LMA/SB/CH win more than 400 yards and 7 touchdowns to his credit Friday night. "We couldn't stop him," he said. "We had him in the backfield and he got away." Howell said his team ran well in the first half and turned to the passing game in the second half. "We had a good game plan," Howell said. "We didn't execute very well." Next week, EC takes on Camden Military in Turbeville. "We were able to beat them last year," Howell said. "But they're a prep school and have fifth year starters." In last year's matchup, Hickson had a great game against Camden Military, the coach said. On the practice field this coming week, Howell said he's going to focus on fundamentals. "Fundamentals hurt us this week," he said. "Execution hurt us. We're going to get back to basics." "Our players have got to be set before the ball is snapped," Howell said. "They have got to remember to get ready and get set. It hurt us against Lakewood."

William Dingle took the ball on the first place from scrimmage in the second half and ran 80 yards for a touchdown to put Manning up 20-7 following the extra point. "We played really well," said Manning varsity head football coach Robbie Briggs. "I'm really pleased with our efforts tonight." Briggs said Manning ran a "toss, throw back" play in the first half. Manning quarterback Jason Baxter tossed the ball to halfback Daniel Pendergrass who then threw the ball back to Baxter for a touchdown. "We didn't complete that play all week in practice," Briggs said, "and we completed it during a game." Although Crestwood led in almost all the stats Friday night, the Monarchs came away with the win. The Monarchs' rushing statistics totaled 31 carries for 145 yards to the Knights 62 carries for 229 yards.

Page Ten SePTeMBer 14, 2011 It's in-between time for Clarendon's bucks By Terry Madewell One thing was abundantly clear on the opening day of deer hunting gun season ... deer were on the move. Even before I saw my first deer that afternoon (I could not hunt that morning), I heard several shots in the distance. In fact, a good friend of mine hunting on our leased property saw 28 deer that afternoon, with several "shooter" bucks in the total, but the bucks were all out of his comfortable gun range. Fortunately for me, he could not hunt the next day and I happened to be in a stand about 200 yards closer to where the bucks hit the bean field and did manage get a nice 8-pointer. The point of this story is not about that deer, but about the several other deer I saw in the back of pickups that were simply huge deer. Big 8- and 10-point racks, heavy beams, wide and huge bodies. One deer, an 8-point, weighed in at 213 pounds with about a 20-inch spread and tall tines. It might make the state book. It is a tremendous early season deer. After the flurry of activity those first few days, a lot of hunters get into a short-lived lull until the rut begins to kick in. By hunting hard the first week, some of the deer hunters get a bit discouraged when the buck action slows. There does seem to be a void in time when the season opens and everyone hunts and then things slack off a bit. For sure, the deer have been alerted and are a bit wiser for the experience. But they can still be had. The key now is to get into those wellhidden deer stands early, sit quietly and for long periods and you will often be rewarded. That was the case last year when after the first week or so of hunting, pressure slacked off from midSeptember to early October. I know of several big bucks that were taken, during a time when not as many hunters were in the woods. As most hunters know, it becomes legal to shoot doe deer if you have tags beginning Sept. 15, so a few more hunters will be chasing meat. But if you're buck hunting you're still in business. For a few weeks, until the pre-rut mode begins, you can enjoy some very good hunting with relatively light pressure. The heavier hunting for doe deer takes place in areas away from where the bucks are hanging out ... until the rut begins and then it's a free for all again. The primary key to success right now is to not let the deer know you are in the woods. They have been alerted by the heavy pressure of opening week. They are wary and somewhat spooked, but as the human intrusion pace slows for this period, they will feed cautiously, but they will feed. Get to your stand early and with the cooling weather we're having, not stinking up the place with human odor is becoming less of a problem. Wear scent proof clothing if you can and also change up and hunt the mornings as wells the afternoons. A lot of hunters do prefer the afternoons, especially early in the season. But there is a short window of time in the mornings when opportunities can be very good. First the deer will feed early in the morning, and that is good but they will usually not feed for long. They will come by or through open areas, cross roads or lanes as they travel from feeding areas to bedding areas. A perfect example just happened to a buddy of mine. He positioned himself between the food source which was a bean field, and the bedding area. He did not have a corn pile or food plot, he just got high in a longleaf pine using a climbing stand so he had good vision for a long distance. He saw several deer moving toward the bedding area, three were bucks and one was a nice 8-point which went home in the back of his truck. He had to slip in early and get positioned quietly before dawn, but you don't have to even think about if it was worth it or not. Certainly it was worth it. He will be doing that same thing this next week and I suspect he'll have even more success. He changes the areas he sets up so the deer cannot pattern him. Late evening is also a prime time for a nice buck to move out to feed where you can get a good shot. This is where a quality scope is worth every cent you paid for it. Often even a couple of extra minutes which can be gleaned from a quality scope will make the difference between seeing an unidentifiable image, or being able to see the rack clearly and count the antlers. Regardless of what scope Citizen Wildlife Lance Tilton with a 213-pound, Williamsburg County buck taken opening weekend. you buy, purchase the best you can afford. The payback potential is one of those truisms in that you get what you pay for most of the time. dan KiBler/Clarendon Citizen Don't let the next few weeks pass you by without getting into the deer woods. It's the short but sweet in-between time and the last one we'll get for quite a while. By Terry Madewell Fishing on the Santee Cooper lakes has improved considerably over the past week to 10 days. Most likely the cooler weather has had a direct and indirect impact. Direct in that slightly cooler water temperatures may be good for the fish. Indirect in that it likely led to more anglers on the water looking for fish. Despite the fact that deer season has opened and the hunting is very good right now, the fishing news has perked up for several species of fish recently. First of all, the largemouth bass are biting well and are being taken on a variety of lures. The catfish action, which had been good, has improved which is typical of September. Actually as the month progresses into October, the fishing for catfish peaks again with many fishermen liking the fall fishing as much as the spring action. In addition, good catches of crappie are being made from sunken brush and some bream and shellcracker are also being caught. The largemouth bass are being taken from shallow cover and on shallow flats early and late in the day. Plastic worms, spinner baits and crank baits are all productive. When the sun gets high, the fish retreat to heavier cover for a while, but with accurate casting, good catches are still being made throughout the day. Plus the weather is getting comfortable where angers can fish longer and more effectively. Fishing improves with cool weather Carolina Tree Care Home & Mobile Home Owners Sales & Service on all Brands Lower your Power Bill with an Energy Efficient Westinghouse Heat Pump We have the right equipment and experience to get the job done. Tree removal � Pruning � Forestry Mowing � Stump Grinding Fertilization Plant Health Care � Arborist Assessment Pre-construction Consults The best fishing for catfish has been to anchor and fan cast cut bait around the boat on Lake Marion. On Lake Moultrie, drift fishing has produced the best results for most anglers. The depth the fish are found has varied quite a bit, but the one constant has been the close proximity to forage fish. Find the baitfish and the catfish will likely be nearby. Cut shad or herring have been best for the blues and live bream and perch best for flatheads. Stink baits are producing big numbers of smallish channel catfish right now on the humps and points in 10-20 feet of water. Crappie action continues to be very good fishing live minnows or small jigs over sunken brush as well as around the trees and logs in 10-20 feet of water. One of the keys to success has been to stay on the move until you locate fish in a general area. You may fish several areas with few fish and then find the mother lode of crappie. The bream fishing has slowed but good catches of fish can still be made. Most anglers are casting small beetle spin spinners or using crickets around weeds, brush or trees to catch bream. Most of the fish are scattered, but you'll usually find several in the same general vicinity. In saltwater, the shrimp season is open and there should be a lot of activity all along the coast for that. In addition, the redfish, flounder and trout are all biting fair-to-well throughout the inshore areas.
