Downtown Beaufort: Where The Locals Go! Luther’s Rare & Well Done, established in 2001, upholds the long tradition of Beaufort’s Bay Street watering holes, welcoming locals, tourists and military personnel alike. Owned and operated by the Stavac family, Luther’s menu features hearty fare like steaks, ribs, pork chops, local seafood, burgers, sandwiches, pizzas and salads. Kick back and enjoy trivia contests, karaoke night, wide-screen TVs and live music along with nightly specials. This summer’s lineup includes: Monday Trivia with Chris Drury from 8 to 10 p.m.; Tuesday Karaoke with Billy “The Human Jukebox”; half-price burgers from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday; Thirsty Thursday with Chris Jones; and live entertainment on Friday and Saturday. Luther’s is located in the heart of historic downtown Beaufort along with Bay Street’s retail shops and art galleries. Luther ’s decor celebrates local history and culture and the back deck

opens onto the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park, with its expansive view of the Beaufort River. In the early part of the 20th century the building at 910 Bay St. housed a pharmacy run by Charles “Doc” Luther. The pharmacy business lasted for many decades but gave way in the mid-80s to a Tropics-inspired tavern and bar called Bananas. Today, Luther’s has more of a “Cheers” vibe, laid back and comfortable, a great place for a good meal and some cold brew. Owners Ron and Bev Stavac handle the dayside operation while their son Michael “Stretch” Stavac manages the bar from happy hour through closing time. For more information call (843) 521-1888.

The Lowcountry’s Devin Taylor of The Detroit Lions #92 By Dante Juanito The Lowcountry

is celebrating one of its own and wishing him the best of luck. After a very successful collegiate career at The University of South Carolina, Beaufort’s Devin Taylor is making his transition into the Nation Football League. The Detroit Lions drafted the 6-foot7 266 pound defensive end earlier this year. Taylor joins a list of NFL players from Beaufort County that include names like Boyce Green, James Saxon, Wayne Simmons, Donnell Washington, Ron Parker and current Jacksonville Jaguars fullback Greg Jones just to name a few. Back on June 22nd friends and family put on Devin Taylor appreciation day. The event was held at the Beaufort Town Center. It featured music, food and drinks along with children activities. Everything was free. People also had the chance to get autographs and take pictures with the new NFL player. Taylor had just completed mini camp and was looking forward to getting into summer practice. He stood head and shoulders over most people that he took pictures with him but was friendly to all. He says he is appreciative of his hometown being supportive. “I thank everyone for coming out. I like coming home and I want to do more stuff like this in the future for my community.”

Devin and Mom Sylvia

His hometown is proud of him as well. Beaufort Mayor Billy Keyserling addressed the crowd and told them that it is great to have young people putting Beaufort on the national map in a positive way. He also referenced American Idol winner Candice Glover. Of course Taylor has some proud parents, Maybe that’s why football players always love to say hi mom when the get some television face time. Sylvia Cuyler is Taylor’s mother. She says he always loved playing the game of football and she has watched him from pee-wee leagues up through college. She says she doesn’t plan to stop now. “We will be making some trips. It may be a little colder but we will be there.” Cuyler also helped to plan the festivities for her son. She says it was a way to give back to the community. “We just wanted to say thank-you to the community for the support.” Cuyler was a New England Patriots Fan but she says now her team is The Detroit Lions.

Catch of the day is dinner tonight at Fiddlers Seafood By Ruth Ragland Associate Editor

It’s no surprise that family-owned and operated Fiddlers Seafood Restaurant in Ridgeland offers family-friendly dining as well. Donna Rowell and her husband Billy are lifetime residents of Ridgeland. They’ve been in the restaurant business for 14 years and it’s the freshness of the seafood on their menu that sets their place apart. Billy Rowell has been a commercial fisherman for more than 30 years and it’s his catch of the day that’s served up in the restaurant. “It started out with just takeout, we had the fish market and the restaurant and together,” Donna explained. They sold that operation and have had a restaurant and separate seafood market for the last seven years. All of the Rowells’ children have helped in the business through high school and college and now their younger son Jordan runs the seafood market at 572 S. Green St. Their daughter T’Lene works for the city of Ridgeland. Their oldest son Joey is a firefighter and there’s an array of hand-pattied specialty burgers on the menu named for members of the Ridgeland department featuring their favorite fixings. The range of seafood offerings runs the gamut from homemade soups and salads to Lowcountry boil, crab legs and platters with 16 sides like fried okra, summer squash and green tomatoes to choose from. They try to buy produce locally and

10 • www.Ediblesmag.com

even pick some fresh from their home garden. Donna recommends the grilled shrimp or tilapia for the health conscious. On Fridays and Saturdays Fiddlers serves bone-in fish for the seniors who grew up loving it that way. Shrimping season is here and the Rowells are hoping for a better year than last year for their customers who crave peel-and-eat shrimp. The easy-going atmosphere creates camaraderie among diners, Donna says. “Mostly it’s a local hang out, casual and kid friendly with no alcohol,” Donna said. “If I get real busy my regulars will get up and talk to everybody to make sure everybody’s comfortable,” she said. And if she runs out of prepped fish Rowell can clean some on the fly — you can’t get fresher than that. Fiddlers Seafood Restaurant is open year round from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 7738 W. Main St. in Ridgeland. For more information call (843) 726-6991.

Carolina Southern Chicken Bog!

By The Chef

Southern chicken bog is one of the most-loved comfort dishes in the Carolinas. We produced rice and of course many chickens ran around on our properties. This hearty dish fed big families and many workers at one time. Big iron kettles with lids were used in its preparation. Many variations exist but it was rather easy to make. Just chicken, rice, seasonings, and maybe a couple other additions if you like. 5 to 6 lb. fat hen 1 large onion 1 stick of butter 2 lbs of long grain rice, (not instant or par-boiled)

maybe-- a green pepper 8 ounces of bacon salt and pepper. Put your chicken in a good pot, cover with water (8 cups plus) cook for two hours, lightly boiling and let cool. Take 4 cups of rice, put in a bowl and cover with cool water from your sink spigot. Pull your chicken and debone, discard the skin, pour about a cup from the top of the chicken stock off, rid the fat! Clean your pot, brown the bacon, onion and diced-up pepper, now add 6 cups of chicken broth, drain water from the rice, pour into pot, add seasoning (here pepper is important) and butter. Bring to a boil, then finish on low, stir (very little) about an hour; crumble bacon on top and serve.

Visit South Carolina & Georgia Beaches by Andrey Berry

Beaches are tourist magnets, attracting families and thrill seekers in their droves each year, who come to sunbathe, to take part in watersports such as surfing and bodyboarding, or sometimes to simply stroll along the shore. Beaches vary dramatically in their size and use; while some beaches are tourist meccas, others are unspoiled wildernesses, meaning beaches are often as interesting as other types of terrain. Hunting Island (SC) Hunting Island Beach is located near historic Beaufort, Hunting Island State Park is a natural paradise where visitors come to enjoy the serenity of nature. Fripp Island (SC) The most seaward of the Sea Islands in South Carolina, Fripp Island is a wildlife sanctuary known for its relatively uncrowded feel. Edisto Island (SC) Edisto Beach is the choice for guests who want to get back to nature. Kiawah Island (SC) Kiawah Island is a coastal island off South Carolina, with 10 miles of pristine beaches, approximately 10,000 acres of natural woodlands and every amenity to meet the needs of the entire family. Myrtle Beach (SC) As the largest resort along South Carolina’s 60-mile Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach is the East Coast’s ultimate vacation hub. Isle of Palms (SC) The Isle of Palms is as Lowcountry hideaway outside of the busy city of Charleston.

Folly Beach (SC) Known to locals as the Edge of America, Folly Beach has a charming Southern small-town surf vibe just 15 minutes from downtown Charleston. Hilton Head (SC) One of the largest islands on the East Coast, Hilton Head is perfect for families and individuals who are looking for a large resort area with an array of activities to enjoy. Tybee Island (GA) Often making a great day trip from Savannah, this island can stand alone as a destination as well, beckoning you to enjoy a Tybee Island vacation. St. Simons Island (GA) St. Simons Island features two white-sand public beaches, two of the loveliest beaches in Georgia. Jekyll Island (GA) Jekyll Island is a larger island, with three public beaches and a host of Georgia beach rentals available throughout the summer. Callaway Gardens (GA) Callaway Gardens is a popular spot for Georgia beach vacations, actually features the largest inland man-made white sand beach anywhere in the world.

10 Health Benefits Of Watermelon By Thresia Paulose

1.

Summer and watermelon are inseparable. Watermelons are found almost everywhere in the world. Although we can find watermelons in our markets throughout the year, the season for watermelon is the summer when they are sweet and of the best quality. No other fruit can we find so crunchy and thirst quenching like watermelon.

The health benefits of watermelon are really great. No matter how it is sliced, it is packed with some of the most important antioxidants found in nature.

2

. It is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of vitamin A, particularly through its concentration of beta-carotene.

3.

The beautiful red watermelon is also a source of the potent carotene antioxidant which is called lycopene. These antioxidants travel throughout the body neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are substances in the body that can cause much damage to us. They are able to oxidize cholesterol, making it stick to blood vessel walls and thicken them which can lead to hearty attack or stroke. The lycopene which gives fruits the attractive red color that we find in watermelon can help reduce the risks of prostate cancer.

4. It is a surprising fact that watermelon is the only fruit that contains higher concentrations of lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable.

5.

Watermelon is a fruit that is rich in electrolytes sodium and potassium that we lose through our perspiration.

6. Watermelon is rich in the B vitamins necessary for energy production. Food experts recommend watermelon as

20 • www.Ediblesmag.com

a very good source of vitamin B6 and a good source of vitamin B1 and magnesium. Because of its higher water content approximately ninety percent and calorie value it is ranked more valuable than other fruits.

7. Watermelon

has a special cooling effect and is exceptionally high in citrulline, an amino acid that our bodies use to make another amino acid, arginine, which is used in the urea cycle to remove ammonia from the body.

8.

The antioxidants help reducing the severity of asthma. It also reduces the risk of colon cancer, asthma, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and prostate cancer.

9. Watermelon is a good source of thiamin, potassium and magnesium which protect our body from so many diseases.

10. Watermelon is fat free but helps energy production. It protects against macular degeneration. When the heat of summer tires us with thirst, eating watermelon is a safe alternative to taking energy drinks. Since it contains high water quantity it can hydrates us whereas other drinks are caffeine filled energy drinks which can easily dehydrate us. Nothing can be more satisfactory on a hot, dusty day than a crisp, juicy slice of watermelon!
