Let’s Talk Turkey By Georgene Mortimer, Island Winery

Aside from being less filling than beer, wine is going to bring out the best flavors... Cooking wine is what takes the edge off a house full of people and a demanding bird in the oven. Make sure this wine is your personal favorite and reserved for you only. Indulge a little bit. After all, aren’t you thankful for a good grape harvest? Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving Dinner or you’re traveling, wine can play a major role in your holiday. If you’re hosting a house full of family, in-laws and friends, your Thanksgiving Day wine experience likely begins with the Macy’s Parade and ends with the last man standing. If you’re on somebody’s Thanksgiving guest list, chances are you’re on the hook for a covered dish or a bottle of wine. Even if you’re “that guy” who shows up empty-handed, think about stepping up and contributing a bottle of wine to the party. It’s not just the “classy” thing to do, it also ensures you’ll have the perfect companion beverage to your turkey and cranberry sauce. The Thanksgiving Day hosts extend their hospitality to you on Thanksgiving Day, so when you’re invited, ask them if they have a favorite type of wine they would like you to bring. If they answer definitively with a varietal or appellation, you have your Thanksgiving Day marching orders. If you’re not sure what type of wine they’re talking about, just ask your local wine merchant; they will point you in the right direction. What if your host keeps things open-ended or does not like wine? This is your excuse to go out and buy a bottle of your favorite. So what if it is a bit self-serving, in the end you are a better houseguest for it. If you happen to be hosting Thanksgiving, make sure you’re pairing the ideal wine with your picture-perfect turkey. The most important rule of Thanksgiving wine pairing, for the host, is finding your ideal “cooking wine.” 18 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2011

At turkey time, make sure you have a bottle of red wine and a bottle of white wine on the table. Even if you have a house full of beer drinkers, consider urging everyone over 21 to pair a glass of wine with their dinner. Aside from being less filling than beer, wine is going to bring out the best flavors (or strategically hide flaws) in your home cooking. If you’ve prepared a savory Better Homes and Garden-worthy turkey, pair a dry Pinot Grigio to showcase your white meat. Its crisp texture and light tropical fruit notes will compliment your perfectly seasoned breast meat. For dark meat lovers, nothing short of a vintage Cabernet’s tart notes will compliment the rich texture of wings and drumsticks. For those of us whose turkeys are hit-or-miss (let’s be honest here), a big, bold Merlot and an oaked Chardonnay are the perfect partners in crime. Not only will their robust flavors aid in the intake of dry turkey meat, they will add a nice compliment to the generous amounts of gravy needed to mask any kitchen nightmares. As always, the great staff at Island Winery is always willing to help you pick out your holiday wine. Of course, our Cranberry wine is a musthave on all Thanksgiving tables. It has been known to convert even the most die-hard beer drinker into a wine lover! Store/Tasting hours at Island Winery are Monday-Saturday, 12:30-5:30 p.m. with Wine Flights & Cheese available from 12:30-2:30 p.m. A Wine & Cheese Happy Hour is offered Monday-Thursday starting at 4 p.m. 12A Cardinal Road.

The Gift of Wellness By Kim Busby, Powerhouse Gym

... the gift of a gym membership can be great motivation...

Trying to find the right gift for a loved one or a cherished employee can be challenging and stressful at this time of year. Wellness is always in style and membership to a gym or fitness classes can make a great gift. The aftermath of the holidays and less daylight makes many people feel lethargic and blue. Daily exercise pumps you full of endorphins, which fuels a great outlook and sense of wellbeing. Sure, exercise makes you tired at first, but within a couple of weeks it leads to fewer colds, less fatigue and fitting into your favorite jeans. A gym membership can be a greatly appreciated gift, if you know of someone who has mentioned getting in better shape or being more active and you would like to help them get started on that resolution. If you are thinking about or have recently joined a gym yourself, the gift of a gym membership can be great motivation for both you and the recipient. Having a workout buddy to encourage and motivate you towards fitness goals, as well as the opportunity to spend quality time with your friend or relative makes the gift even more special. If you are the owner or manager of a company, the task of coming up with holiday gift ideas for your employees can be very difficult. A gym membership is also a great corporate holiday gift for many reasons. First, a fit employee will be better equipped to handle on the job stress and be more productive. Second, the gift will last for an entire year, reminding the employee over and over 26 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2011

that they are a valued part of the company. Also, if the company enrolls a group in a corporate membership plan, the cost may be less. Membership at the right gym offers a variety of ways to get in shape and is a fun and healthy social outlet. Group fitness classes such as Zumba or kickboxing are a good option for those who enjoy a more social approach to exercise. State-ofthe-art cardio equipment will suit those who prefer to put on earphones and listen to music. Most weight machines are a safe way to make sure the person has correct form and they usually have pre-set weight, so as not to overdo it right away. Personal training sessions are another option to jump start the New Year’s resolutions of those new to exercising or to take the workout program of people who do exercise to another level. Whether your gym gift is a year membership, a series of group fitness classes or some personal training sessions, you want to be sure the gym provides a positive and encouraging environment. Located in The Bridge Center, Powerhouse Family Gym features a 1,800-square-foot aerobics room with six classes per day, 50+ pieces of cardio equipment, cycling, tanning, personal training, nutrition counseling, Cardio Cinema, group classes and more. To inquire about gift certificates, membership options and the new Powerhouse Kids Club, please call (843) 706-9700 or visit the gym at 1530 Fording Island Road. hiltonhead.com

Horoscope

November 2011

Aries An unusual letter may intrigue you and set you off on a course of action which could change the rest of your life. Be cautious in business affairs and do not sign important papers without having them checked over by your attorney. In romance, maintain your lighthearted mood and do not become deeply involved with someone whose domestic problems are apparent. Taurus Your standing in the community could get a big nudge forward as the result of your activities in a hobby or voluntary organization. Keep up with old friends and don’t let relationships wither because of unimportant social obligations. An old sweetheart may call to revive banked fires. This could prove a pleasant interlude, but is not likely to develop into anything permanent. Pay an old debt.

Gemini A compelling physical attraction could lead to uncomfortable moments at a later date, if you give in to it. If you find it cannot be avoided, lay all your cards on the table and do not deceive yourself or others with romantic doubletalk. In business, keep turning out superior work and you will be rewarded much more handsomely than you expected. Make yourself accessible. Cancer Now is the time to make a big, if dangerous, business move. Care should be taken to keep your activities away from general knowledge, but a little show of power to the proper people could prove profitable. In romantic activities, the opposite would be more advisable. Do not attempt to keep meetings with a loved one secret or you could stir up trouble. Leo Romantic problems could result if you let an attractive, intelligent acquaintance get too big a hold on your imagination. Keep business separate from romance and steer clear of office gossip. Creative assignments could go awry if you lean too heavily on the work of others. Be especially receptive to advice from an older person who has your best interests at heart. Avoid heavy drinking.

Libra A business or personal trip could prove invigorating and bring you into contact with some highly interesting people. Romance could even bud as a result of the above activities, but if it does, older alliances may suffer deeply. In office activities, refuse to be drawn in on arguments that do not concern you. A promotion or new job offer could be in the wings and a low profile is needed.

Scorpio An old friend may come to you with a financial problem. If this happens, do not be too quick to refuse, as the tables could be turned in short order and you may need help yourself. On the other hand, do not throw good money after bad, when expert advice could solve the problem easier than a checkbook. Be sure to attend a social function involving a business superior. Sagittarius A glib-talking person may try to maneuver you into making some unwise choices concerning your present job. Be cautious without becoming negative and check out every supposed opportunity from all directions. In your love life, stay close to home if you do not want your present situation changed radically. Alternatives to your lifestyle may be soon apparent.

Capricorn Try to be less vociferous over a loved one’s activities which may seem utterly foolish to you. You could also give some thought towards being less demanding when it comes to money matters. Talk serious matters over with a professional before making a major move. In business, you may receive longdelayed recognition for your talents.

Aquarius You could be entering a period of dynamic achievement in many areas. This could bring about improvements in your work situation and in your romantic life. If unattached, this could be an excellent time to begin a new relationship, as both opportunity and drive will be going for you. Health problems could occur, however, if you prove unable to say no to some temptations.

Virgo Be cautious in dealing with news

Pisces A working colleague could be in

media acquaintances, remembering that anything of news value cannot be kept quiet because of past friendship. You could find yourself attracted to a new love interest, despite warm feelings for your present relationship. A decision will have to be made shortly concerning this matter. A wrong move could make things difficult.

a position to give you some excellent advice on domestic matters, but be cautious in telling too many tales out of school. Business affairs should prosper now, if you deal fairly with those upon whose effort your success depends. Anchor yourself with a stalwart friend by coming to his defense in a minor matter.

Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins are abundant in local waters... In the wintertime, the Bottlenose population averages from 200 to 400 animals. Early spring through late fall, we are inundated with dolphins as females from all over the Southeastern coast make an annual trek to the area to give birth. Other females act as midwives and nannies, often taking turns watching over the young as the mother feeds. Males tag along, following the females wherever they go – yet another human trait! From a boat, you will often see the young calves swimming and playing with the other dolphins in the pod. Providing abundant food for the mothers, Lowcountry waters also give the young dolphins a fairly safe environment to practice swimming and hunting before moving on to other parts of the coast. Although they lack the gracefulness of an adult dolphin, the calves’ playfulness and energy tends to remind one of their own youth. Courtesy of Dolphin Discoveries, a division of Kayak Hilton Head.

WHITE IBIS – White ibis live in the wetlands of the interior and coastal marshes and swamps. They eat crabs and crayfish, and they feed in very large groups. To find their food, they probe with their long bills into the mud as they slowly walk along. They can pick insects off the dry ground as well. White Ibis nest in huge, dense colonies. When they move from the feeding site back to the colony, they typically fly together as a flock.

Freshwater forested wetlands occur in the interior portions of Hilton Head Island. Once abundant, these wetlands have been fragmented and destroyed by rapid development. Because they provide the only source of fresh water for many animals, these wetlands are vital to the long term health of Hilton Head Island's ecosystems. Forested wetlands are comprised mainly of red maple, sweet gum, black gum, and pine trees, with a diverse understory of wax myrtle, fetterbush, ferns, and other water-loving plants. Many wildlife species can be seen in Hilton Head Island's forested wetlands. Songbirds find shelter and food among the trees and understory vegetation. Many mammals such as rabbits, deer and otter depend on the wetland for their survival. Reptiles and amphibians are also common wetland residents. Good examples of forested wetlands on Hilton Head Island include the Cypress Conservancy in Hilton Head Plantation, and Boggy Gut located off Pope Avenue.

Tidal Water, Pluff Mud, Cordgrass & Oysters By Capt. Patte Ranney, SC Master Naturalist, Outside Hilton Head

... salt marshes play an amazingly important role in our world.

There are basically four naturally occurring components of a salt marsh: The tidal water, the pluff mud, the cordgrass and oysters. Each of these plays a crucial role and each is reliant on the stability of the others for the salt marsh environment to succeed. The tides push the salty waters into the far reaches of the salt marsh and then suck the water out. This constant filling and flushing of the marshes allows for the dynamic exchange of nutrients to and from the ocean. The salinity of the water in the marsh is nearly the same as the ocean. The cordgrass helps keep the pluff mud in place, the mud accumulates and supports the root system of the grasses and from it emerges the vast oyster beds. Should any single component be compromised or removed from the system, the salt marsh would be dramatically different. While we have the most salt marsh in the county, and South Carolina has the most salt marsh of any state, salt marshes can be found throughout the world. They occur wherever there is a flow of salt water between the mainland and outer islands. And salt marshes play an amazingly important role in our world. I like to say that our salt marsh affects everyone, whether you live in the Lowcountry, Ohio, Kansas City, Seattle or Hong Kong. Here are just a few examples: If you enjoy oysters, shrimp and crab… you are affected by our salt marsh. Oysters are a permanent fixture of a salt marsh. In fact, the health of the specific system in which the oysters grow determines the quality and 58 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2011

availability for consumption. A pristine habitat is required. Shrimp and Blue Crab come and go from the salt marsh depending on the stage of their development. Fry shrimp depend on the food and protection provided by the narrow and shallow creeks. If you enjoy whale-watching or birding, you are affected by our salt marsh. The dolphin that ply our waterways throughout the year are, indeed, members of the whale family. Birders can observe a wide variety of species, from the resident Brown Pelican and the unusual Wood Stork to the migrant loons and mergansers, just to name a few! Last, but not least, my favorite example: The incredible Horseshoe Crab! But I’m out of space. Pick up next month’s issue of Island Events to read about how your life is – or may be – impacted by the very cool Horseshoe Crab. For now, get outside and enjoy the cool temperatures. The salt marsh is an awesome environment, rich with unique flora and fauna. Since this is a month with “R,” watch for watermen plying the abundant oyster rakes harvesting this Lowcountry winter specialty. If you eat oysters, be sure to ask for the local, hand-picked variety.

Rejuvenating Eastern Oysters By Kathleen McMenamin, Master Naturalist, H2O Sports

Photo By Diane Murphy, CCCE

... oyster reefs provide habitat to a number of different organisms...

Oyster populations are declining all along the Atlantic Coast.

With the humidity lowering and the cool breezes of fall blowing in, down South we are ready for oyster season. There is nothing better than sharing an Oyster Roast with friends and family, but in order to keep this Southern tradition alive, oyster populations must be maintained. We can all help out! South Carolina’s coast is home to Eastern Oysters (crassostrea virginica). These creatures are a keystone species for our estuary systems. The oyster reefs provide habitat to a number of different organisms, such as fish, shrimps, crabs and other mollusks. The oyster reefs also act as natural breakwater, absorbing wave energy that could potentially be harmful to our shores. They are also the number one water filter we have in South Carolina. One oyster can filter 2.5 gallons of water every hour – that’s 50 gallons of water a day! Eastern Oysters can be found in our intertidal zone and thus are very tolerant creatures. They can withstand great variations in temperature and salinity. They eat by filter feeding phytoplankton out of the water column. Reproduction takes place in the summer months when the water temperature is greater than 68 degrees. During reproduction, oysters release free-swimming larvae called Spat. This spat is carried through our waterways by tides and currents looking for hard substrate to attach itself to, called Clutch. The best thing for spat is to attach to another oyster shell, but it can also fasten to wood, concrete or other forms of shells. Once the spat has found a suitable clutch, it will develop a full shell within 12 to 24 hours. 60 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2011

Over-harvesting, the destruction of oyster habitat, water pollution, coastal development and wake from recreational boats are all contributing factors. Tens of thousands of bushels are harvested off of the U.S. Atlantic coast each year, but less than 10% percent of the harvested shells return to our waterways. Without these shells being placed back into the water, the oyster spat are finding less clutch to grow on. South Carolina Oyster Restoration and Enhancement (SCORE) is a program started by the Department of Natural Resources of South Carolina to increase our Eastern Oysters. Volunteers work together to plant clutch material in order to recruit more juvenile oysters. They have also established Oyster Recycling facilities, where both commercial companies and individuals can deposit used shells, to be placed back into our waterways. Since May of 2001, SCORE volunteers using 500 tons of shells have built 188 reefs on our coast. Old shells are quarantined for up to 6 months and then are placed into plastic mesh bags. These bags stop the shells from breaking down and become a part of the reef. The bags are placed in designated areas, usually in tidal creeks and adjacent to salt marshes, during the oyster spawning season. For more information on SCORE, visit score.dnr.sc.gov. Focusing on the wildlife and habitats of the South Carolina Lowcountry, the H2O Nature Center features live reptile and amphibian exhibits, hands-on displays and more. Apparel, gifts, books and bicycle/fishing gear rentals are also available.

Two-Plane vs. One-Plane Swing By I.J. Schecter with Doug Weaver

Photos by Rob Tipton/Boomkin Productions

OnePlane Swing

Two types of swings are in fashion today – the two-plane and the one-plane. Until recently, almost all professionals used a two-plane swing, involving a fairly erect posture, narrow stance, a level turn and a swing that brings the arms up almost vertically, on a steeper plane than that of the shoulders. Over the last 15 years or so, swing scholar Jim Hardy has introduced the increasingly popular one-plane swing, which is distinguished from the two-plane by its physical ease and mechanical simplicity. While both types of swings end up at essentially the same spot – square to the ball at impact – they get there in different ways. Let’s talk about the path your club should be taking to the ball and the three crucial stops it should make along the way. Stop No. 1 The position of your hands and wrists halfway through your backswing should provide clear evidence whether you’re using a two- or oneplane swing. Since the two-plane backswing is intended to be pulled straight back up over your shoulder, halfway through the backswing (at the 9 o’clock position), your arms will be moving on an upright plane, your clubhead slightly outside or aligned with your hands and your wrists hinged. Here’s a good test: If you’re on-plane and you allow your palms to open while in this position, the clubshaft should slide down through them. 62 ISLAND EVENTS NOVEMBER 2011

... the angle of the front arm matches the angle of an imaginary line... If you’re using a one-plane swing, which is flatter by nature than the two-plane swing, the clubshaft will not slide through your palms so easily, if at all. Stop No. 2 At the top of the more traditional two-plane backswing, the front arm is more upright (between the ear and shoulder), and the shaft of the club is parallel to the target line. By contrast, the one-plane swing arrives at the top of the backswing with the front arm on the same plane as the shoulders, at an angle closer to 45 degrees. This in turn keeps the clubshaft parallel to the target line and maintains an unchanged spine angle from the initial address position. It is called a “one-plane” because the angle of the front arm matches the angle of an imaginary line drawn between the shoulders. Stop No. 3 It is on the way back toward the ball that, for most golfers, the one-plane swing will begin to feel odd. Most likely, you’ve grown up learning a two-plane swing, so the one-plane route will feel counterintuitive to your muscles. After all, you’ve spent hours trying to perfect a swing in which the club is brought straight back up and over your shoulders before your hips start to release, pulling the rest of your body along with them. In the one-plane swing, your upper body releases first and your lower body second. The swing is designed this way in order to help you avoid getting “stuck” partway through the downswing, a circumstance that leads to perilous adjustments as a result of flawed timing.
