Springtime in Beaufort

First Friday & DeepWater Music Festival made a lively weekend in the Lowcountry PHOTOS BY BOB SOFALY

COVERING BEAUFORT COUNTY

The inaugural DeepWater Music Festival kicked off Sunday, April 8, at the old Port Royal Port Authority in Port Royal and, judging by the enthusiasm of the crowd, was a huge success. “This is just great” said Tayler Gampo from Chicago who is visiting family in Beaufort. “It’s still pretty cold back home. But this, this is great,” she said as she danced, wearing cutoff shorts and twirling a plastic hula hoop. Attendees talked with friends and enjoyed the live music. There was even a visit from medieval Spanish explorer Pedro Menendez, portrayed by Stephen Shinners.

Snack trucks were available to feed the crowds during the inaugural DeepWater Music Festival.

One of the big crowd pleasers was this super-charged 1933 Ford “Three Window Couple” on display during April’s installment of First Friday. Downtown merchants had Bay Street closed to traffic for the event with businesses staying open late, and many serving wine and snacks. The addition of about a dozen classic cars, hot rods and live music made for a very enjoyable evening.

Event organizers Mary and Eric Thibault of Thibault Gallery on Bay Street said April’s First Friday was a huge success.

93rd annual Old Sheldon Church service to be held Sunday, April 15 Since 1925, the Parish Church of St. Helena has hosted a service of Morning Prayer and a picnic on the grounds of the Old Sheldon Church ruins in Northern Beaufort County. The service is held the second Sunday after Easter. Now over a half century since the first service was held, the Old Sheldon Church tradition continues.

Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority unveils solar program Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority (BJWSA) cut a ceremonial ribbon Wednesday, April 4 to mark the construction of solar arrays at two facilities. The arrays, part of a Power Purchase Agreement with South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G), are housed at the Port Royal Island and St. Helena Island water reclamation facilities. The project involved many years of research, as Director of Technical Maintenance and SCADA Al Legare explored opportunities for a BJWSA solar venture. “It is very rewarding to see these projects come to fruition after many years of investigating solar opportunities,” he said. “These projects demonstrate our commitment to the environment and

our customers to run the Authority as efficiently as possible.” General Manager Ed Saxon added, “This cost effective project is a great example of BJWSA’s commitment to sustainability and will provide direct benefits to our rate payers for many decades.” The program is already producing electricity and will pay for itself in less than 10 years. Dashboards for each site are already live, showing real-time production. Guests at the event signed two solar panels that will hang in BJWSA facilities to commemorate the event. The Authority will donate a third panel to St. Helena Elementary School, as part of its public education outreach program. Learn more at www.bjwsa.org.

Shanklin Elementary School gets JACOB Kits Burton firefighters installed 50 JACOB Kits in Shanklin Elementary School today, covering all classrooms to include the cafeteria and media center. Teachers received training on the kits and how to Stop The Bleed earlier in the week. All elementary school classrooms, media centers, and cafeterias in the Burton Fire District now have a JACOB Kit, which are small medical kits that include tourniquets to stop major bleeding, and all teachers have received training by Burton paramedics and EMTS on how to treat critically injured students. Burton fire officials are now looking to expand the program to the middle and high schools. The kits have been paid for through grants and local donations. Fire departments throughout Beaufort County are working to install JACOB Kits in their local classrooms as well, and are in need of the public’s help to fund the program.

Those wishing to donate a kit to a local classroom, or have questions on the JACOB Kit program, are encouraged to call their local fire department or email safetyed@burtonfd.org.

For more information on the JACOB Kit program, people can also visit the JACOB Kit Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ SCJACOBkit.

Palmetto Animal League hosts online auction Auction will be held April 20-23 to help rescue homeless pets

Save the date, because next week Palmetto Animal League goes live with its annual ‘Bid for PAL’ Online Auction to benefit homeless pets. PAL’s auction is a long-standing tradition - and the non-profit animal rescue’s largest fundraiser - saving the lives of hundreds of abandoned, abused and neglected pets each year. The auction, which takes place April 20-23 at www.PALauction. org, features hundreds of items up for bid, donated by many of the Lowcountry’s most popular businesses. In addition to the always popular items such as golf packages, restaurant certificates, spa treatments, fine wine, and home services, the 9th Annual Bid for PAL Online Auction is also offering exotic travel adventures, Chevrolet vehicles, Duffy boats, inground pools, and much more.

Palmetto Animal League resident Star has started browsing the hundreds of items featured in next week's "Bid for PAL" online auction.

“We have all sorts of fabulous items that everyone will enjoy,” says auction co-chair Mary Lynn Peacher. “You can browse and bid from

the comfort of your home, so put on your fuzzy slippers (or flip-flops) and help PAL save animals' lives!” The Bid for PAL online auction

starts Friday, April 20 at 8 a.m. and continues through Monday, April 23 at 10 p.m. Community members are encouraged to pre-register now and be among the first to browse the catalog filled with highly sought-after items from Hilton Head, Bluffton, Beaufort and beyond. The more folks spend, the more animals are saved, as all proceeds go directly to PAL’s no kill adoption center in Okatie, which runs solely on heart, hard work and community support. “From the litter of newborn puppies forced to begin life outside in the bitter cold to the blind kitten found stumbling around an auto shop terrified and alone - PAL represents hope,” explains the non-profit’s President Amy Campanini. “When you Bid for PAL, you are helping us rescue animals from dire situations.” PAL’s Adoption Center, located in

Okatie’s Riverwalk Business Park, is a cheery, welcoming facility that provides a home-like environment for more than 200 dogs and cats while they wait to be adopted. Located at the same facility, PAL’s Community Clinic offers wellness exams, vaccines, spay/neuter and other vital services at affordable prices. Supporters — both the businesses that donate items to the Bid for PAL Online Auction and those who bid on them — allow PAL to save the lives of pets that have no other hope. For many animals, PAL is their last chance at life. “These are lives worth saving,” said Campanini. “Everyone can shop to save homeless pets at www. PALauction.org when the Bid for PAL Online Auction goes live on April 20, and as we say at PAL, ‘let your heart do the bidding.’”

Local church hosts African Children’s Choir Beaufort’s Community Bible Church, 638 Parris Island Gateway, is hosting the African Children’s Choir in a free concert, Wednesday, April 18th at 6:30 p.m.    The concert kicks off a five-day world missions conference at the church. The keynote, Dr. Erwin Lutzer will speak Friday, April 20th at 6:30 p.m. And Rabbi Hanoch Teller, a renowned Jewish story-teller will speak at a luncheon, that same day at 11:30 a.m. The African Children’s Choir melts the hearts of audiences all over the world with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances. The program features well-loved children's songs, traditional Spirituals and Gospel favorites. Music for Life (The parent organization for The African Children's Choir) works in seven African countries such as, Uganda, Kenya,

Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. MFL’s purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow's Africa, by focusing on education. Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer is Pastor Emeritus of The Moody Church where he served as the Senior Pastor for 36 years. A clear expositor of the Bible, he is the featured speaker on more than 1,000 radio stations around the world. Dr. Lutzer is also an award-winning author of numerous books including: Rescuing the Gospel, He Will Be the Preacher, One Minute After You Die, When a Nation Forgets God, and Hitler’s Cross. Lutzer also leads tours to Israel and the cities of the Protestant Reformation in Europe.

SC Literary Hall of Fame South Carolina Academy of Authors induction comes to Beaufort The South Carolina Academy of Authors will induct four new writers into the Palmetto State’s literary hall of fame in a weekend featuring an awards dinner, free public conversations, exhibitions, and tours in Beaufort, South Carolina, on April 27–29. The SCAA’s 32nd annual induction weekend will honor the literary contributions of James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Nathalie Dupree, New York Times best-selling novelist Mary Alice Monroe, Pushcart Prize-winning fiction writer Valerie Sayers, and dramatist and first director of the SC Academy of Fine Arts John Blake White (1781–1859). As Beaufort is also the adopted hometown of best-selling author and 1988 SCAA honoree Pat Conroy, the weekend’s events will include tours and exhibitions honoring Conroy’s lasting literary legacy. An awards dinner will be held beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, at the Beaufort Holiday Inn & Suites Conference Center Carolina Ballroom, 2225 Boundary St. Tickets can be purchased online at www.scacademyofauthors.org by April 20; $55/individual or $90/ couple.

CONROY CENTER UNVEILS A LITTLE LOWCOUNTRY LENDING LIBRARY In "My Reading Life", Pat Conroy said, “the veneration of books carries its own rewards,” and for Pat that reward was most heartfelt and reassuring when in a library. The Conroy Center, in partnership with the Friends of the Beaufort County Library and a group of junior and senior National Honor Students from Wendy Lacombe’s Beaufort High School classes, have coordinated efforts to create a Little Lowcountry Lending Library, offering readers of all ages free access to the wealth of a library. The library will be unveiled Friday, April 20 at 4 p.m. at the Pat Conroy Literary Center. Melissa Murray, English and Arts Coordinator with the Beaufort County Schools developed the concept, and her father, Ed

Kulisek, built the library. The Friends of the Library Bookstore donated the library’s first inventory of books. Marilyn Harcharik, president of the Friends of the Library, Beaufort, helped two students, Aliyah Gardner and Tess Lacombe, choose 20 books to be placed in the library. Readers are asked to abide by the code "to take a book is to replace a book." The students decorated the library with the theme Lowcountry marsh life. The library will have a Pat Conroy quote woven into its artwork. Pat’s duel love affair with both the beauty of the Lowcountry and the comfort brought by books is best described in a quote from "My Losing Season": “I felt as comfortable entering the… library as whelk entering its shell.”


SCHOOLS

Parker’s gives $25,000 to Beaufort County Schools

SCHOOL BRIEFS SCAM: Beaufort-area businesses being solicited on behalf of schools

A Texas-based company calling itself Sports Media has been soliciting Beaufort-area businesses, supposedly on behalf of Battery Creek or Beaufort high schools. Neither high school has a business relationship with this company. Hilton Head Island High School previously had situations where a third-party vendor claimed a relationship with the school that did not exist. Any Beaufort County business with questions about third-party solicitations on behalf of a local school should contact that school to confirm the legitimacy of any transaction before spending any money.

School district finance staff earns national award

Finance staffers from the Beaufort County School District have earned a national award for excellence from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada. The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting recognized the school district’s 2017 annual financial report. The announcement marked the 28th consecutive year that the district had earned the national recognition. GFOA said the award honors financial reports that demonstrate a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” and that clearly communicate a school district’s financial story and motivate citizens to read the annual report.  It said the award represents “the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.”

Beaufort County School District was recently presented with a $25,000 Fueling the Community check from Parker’s at the monthly school board meeting in Bluffton. From left: Superintendent Jeffrey Moss; Cynthia Houston, District Manager for Parker's; Greg Parker, President and CEO of Parker's; and Chairman of the Beaufort County School Board Earl Campbell.

A local convenience store company today donated $25,000 to Beaufort County schools as part of an ongoing promotion at its outlets. Parker’s, which operates 51 convenience stores in Georgia and South Carolina, said the proceeds came from its “Fueling the Community” program. That promotion gives one cent of every gallon of gas sold on the first Wednesday of each month to local schools. Some of the Parker’s donation goes to support the school district’s annual “Support Person of the Year” recognition program, which honors school nurses, social workers, bookkeepers, office managers, teacher assistants, school secretaries, and technology and data specialists. Other funds go to specific schools designated by Parker’s “Pump Pal Club” customers when they purchase their gasoline on the first Wednesday of

each month. "Giving back to the community is part of our DNA at Parker's," said President and CEO Greg Parker. "We think it's important to support education in every county where we operate Parker's stores. We're delighted to support the hard work of teachers right here Beaufort County through our Fueling the Community program." Parker’s launched its charitable initiative in 2011 and has donated money to public and private schools in every community where Parker’s does business. Superintendent Jeff Moss accepted the donation on behalf of the school district. “This partnership with Parker’s is a wonderful asset,” Moss said. “The company’s annual donation has become a highly visible investment in our schools and in our future.”

Top ROTC cadets honored at spring 2018 joint awards ceremony

More than 80 men and women from the Reserved Officer Training Corps (ROTC) in the South Carolina Corps of Cadets are being recognized for their academic and military leadership and excellence.

Through the departments, The Citadel is one of the nation's proven producers of top military leaders. This spring, more than 100 cadets are expected to commission to all branches of the military. This year's award recipients were honored on Thursday, March 29 in McAlister Field House. Local cadets who received awards include: • Sarah Kardohely (Navy) of Beaufort received the Society of the Daughters of the War of 1812 Award. • Adam Hannah (Marine Corps) of Beaufort, also received the Society of the Daughters of the War of 1812 Award. • Michael Brister (Marine Corps) of Beaufort, received the National Defense Transportation Association Award.

BOYS’ HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL

Offensive leaders for the Dolphins were Cody Lanning (3-for-3, 4 runs, 5 RBIs), Jacob Rye (3-for6, 4 runs, RBI), Jonathan Gordon (1-for-4, 3 RBIs), and Trent Thompson (2-for-5, 4 runs, 2 RBIs). Meanwhile, De’Arius Hazel (2-for4, 2 RBIs) and Jaren Cantorn (1-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs) paced the Warriors at the plate. Two days later, host Battery Creek blanked Whale Branch 10-0 on April 5. Battery Creek pitcher Tyler Hofmann struck out nine and allowed only four hits and one walk in five innings. Cole Lanning led Battery Creek at the plate going 2-for-3 with three RBI’s, while Jonathan Gordon was 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs, and Emanuel Burke drove in two of the Dolphins' 10 runs.

BOYS’ HIGH SCHOOL TENNIS

Eagles defeat May River 5-1

Beaufort High defeated familiar foe May River 5-1 in a boys' high school tennis match on Tuesday, April 3. With the win, Beaufort High improved to 10-4. Singles winners for Beaufort High were Mitchell Russell, Thomas Gnann, Jaco Niemand and Meritt Patterson. The doubles team of Chris Hoogenboom/Diego Lindano also prevailed.

GIRLS’ HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER

Beaufort High

On Tuesday, April 3, Beaufort High girls’ soccer lost at Porter Gaud in Charleston, 2-2 after regular time, and 7-6 in the shootout.

Beaufort Academy

Beaufort Academy girls’ soccer team won against Charleston Collegiate, 4-1, on Monday, April 9. Ally Raschella scored 3 goals, Maeve Kalady scored 1 goal, and goalie Amelia Huebel recorded 4 saves.

When things are going right, they go perfect. And that’s exactly what happened Thursday, April 5, when the Battery Creek Lady Dolphins softball team traveled across town to face Whale Branch and came away with a 12-0 shut out and Battery Creek’s Alexis Ortiz’s first no hitter of the season. “It felt pretty good right from the start”, said Ortiz,17. “All my pitches were working and going where they were supposed to with good speed.” Battery Creek Softball Head Coach Chris Carr said, “She was good tonight. She got ahead of the batters with her best pitches.

That’s when she’s at her best.” Ortiz ranks as one of the top high school softball pitchers in the state. Of the 15 batters she faced during the five-inning game, she struck out 13 of them while the defense made short order of the two that connected. Offensively, Kelsey Hill drilled a three-run homer while Michaux Gee finished 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs. It was Battery Creek’s second no hitter of the season. Michaux Gee pitched a perfect game against Ridgeland-Hardeville recently. The win improved the Lady Dolphins record to 14-3 and 9-0 in Region 8-AAA play.

Local author writes a children's book ‘A Gift for Coco’ Dyneshia Watson had a dog named Coco, who recently passed away. As she watched how her son played with Coco the same way he plays with his new puppy, it inspired Watson to write “A Gift for Coco” (published by AuthorHouse). The book tells the story of Jessica, an 8-year-old girl who has a new dog she named Coco. She takes Coco everywhere she goes, to the park, outside and even to the store. One day Jessica took Coco outside to play in the snow, but Coco ran back inside the house because it is too cold outside. What will Jessica give to protect Coco from the cold weather? “Most children have pets and maybe this book will inspire them to try to keep their pets warm, when playing outside in the cold,” Watson says. “This story teaches children to not just think of themselves, but to have feelings for others, even animals.” Through the publication of “A Gift for Coco,”  Watson encourages readers to use their imagination to create their world the way that they see it, and not how adults expect them to see it. The book is available online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Dyneshia Watson was born and raised in New Jersey. She relocated to Beaufort nine years ago with her husband Sam and her son, Andre Frazier. Her expertise in child development comes from over 30 years of professional experience, working directly with children ages newborn through 18 years old. B4

VOICES

Henny-Penny: The Sky is Falling! A recent newsfeed headline caught my attention. It read “The Sky is falling” “The Sky is Falling”. Naturally I was intrigued and opened the article to see when this disastrous event was to take place. The day in question was April 1st. Okay, another April Fool’s Day gag. But no, it was not a joke. The Tiangong-1 Chinese space station was expected to re-enter the earth’s atmosphere late on the night of March 31st or early April 1st. Evidently the Chinese scientists who were monitoring the space station, lost communication with it sometime in 2016 so they were not going to be able to bring it down in a controlled descent over water. I picture the Ground Controllers saying over and over, “Come in Tiangong 1. Come in Tiangong 1”. Then finally saying, “Please come in Tiangong 1!” But, it never responded. The experts all agreed that the object

Now what?

HIGHLIGHTING DAILY LIFE OBSERVATIONS

Lee Scott, a writer and recent retiree, shares her everyday observations about life after career.

She recently moved to St. Helena Island with her husband and two cocker spaniels. She enjoys boating, traveling and reading.

was to land somewhere between 43 degrees north and 43 degrees south. That is a huge amount of land including most of the USA. However, when you think of it, 70% of the earth is water, so statistically speaking, it was probably going to land in water somewhere. Then I read that Tiangong 1 was the size of a school bus; a nine-ton school bus. Which to me is big and I would rather not have it land here in the Morgan River.

Fortunately, the debris crashed somewhere in the central South Pacific. It took longer than expected to get to Earth since it missed April Fools day on Sunday and landed on Monday the 2nd. According to the NASA.gov website, Tiangong 1 was not alone up there orbiting the earth. The number of objects is staggering when you look at all the micrometeoroids, rocket stages, broken satellites and other space junk.

Besides NASA and DoD, there are other groups around the world monitoring this orbital garbage dump including the European Space Agency. I’m not sure this oversight is very comforting when you consider the items up there that are coming down. In 1979, the America’s 77-ton Skylab crashed through the atmosphere and spread wreckage near Perth, Australia. The US was fined $400.00 for littering. But despite all this junk falling there is only one reported incident of someone being hit by space debris. In 1997, Lottie Williams was walking in Tulsa, Oklahoma when she was hit by an object. It was confirmed to be a piece of a Delta II Rocket. So, heed those “Sky is Falling” headlines despite the sensationalism, because you never know what is falling. It could be space junk, or, like Henny-Penny, it could just be an acorn.

Charleston boys go rogue on Jasper Port By Bill Rauch

Handling as many as 7 million containers a year, and by one estimate providing as many as a million jobs by 2040, The Jasper Ocean Terminal will when it is built-out be the largest container port on the east coast, surpassing both New York/New Jersey and Savannah that are currently first and second respectively. Moreover because both Savannah’s Talmadge Bridge and Charleston’s Ravenel Bridge are not tall enough for the world’s largest container ships today to pass under, the Jasper Terminal will be the only port in South Carolina and Georgia that can handle the big ships. (The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is spending $1.3B to raise the Bayonne Bridge.) And every year bigger ships are built. Without question The Jasper Ocean Terminal project is a transformative one, and with the stakes so high it is little wonder the squabbling over them is sometimes intense, especially during budget season. Recognizing that, every few years since then-Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue and then-South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford first came together in 2007 to call for regional peace over regional war, and to express their respective state’s support for The Jasper Ocean Terminal, to keep the project moving forward new governors have had to reaffirm their support. Now may be another one of those times. Or at least South Carolina State Repre-

sentative Weston Newton thinks it is. In a meeting with Governor Henry McMaster last week Rep. Newton urged the Governor to reach out to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, seeking a meeting at which on behalf of their respective states the two governors would “renew their vows.” The last such peace-keeping effort was two years ago when then-South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley updated the project’s governing pact with Governor Deal, and then went to Jasper County to say the project needs to be “fast-tracked” and that “we need this done yesterday.” Dutifully the Legislature passed a resolution that says the South Carolina State Ports Authority Bill Rauch (SCPA) who with the Georgia Ports Authority are the project’s managers, should make every effort to move the job along “expeditiously.” Governor Haley’s proposed fast-track opening date for the new port was 2025. But since then parochial rivalries appear to have once again surfaced with the effect of their threatening to slow the project. Last month SCPA’s President and CEO James I. Newsome III told a meeting of legislators in Columbia that the Jasper Ocean Terminal wouldn’t be needed until 2035 or 2037. That’s when the Port of Charleston’s terminals are now predicted to have reached their capacities.

Since when does Jasper have to wait to open until Charleston is at capacity? That’s the parochial part, or some of it. As we have seen with the SCPA’s handling of both Port of Port Royal and the Jasper Port, the interests of the Port of Charleston seem always to supersede all else at the SCPA. Another recent indication of this surfaced when SCPA requested $5 million be put into the state’s FY’19 budget for “permitting” at the Jasper Port. The FY’19 budget is currently under consideration in Columbia and due out next month. But then when SCPA came up short on their grants to dredge the Charleston harbor the Authority withdrew the $5M request for Jasper and slid the money over to be added to the $300M for dredging Charleston Harbor that SCPA was already requesting from the state. The Jasper project is now three years into its estimated eight year permitting process and a year’s funding interruption there could set the opening back more than a year. “The permitting money will be there when it’s needed,” Rep. Newton told me last week. Governor McMaster agrees, his press secretary, Brian Symmes, told me last week. “The Governor wants to see this project — including its permitting — go forward as soon as possible. The money for permitting the project will be there any time it is needed,” he added. Luckily for the Jasper port’s proponents the governor appears to mean it. “Governor McMaster intends to do everything he can to

help fulfill then Governor Haley’s promise to have the Port operational by 2025. It was the right thing to do then, and it’s the right thing to do now,” his press secretary also told me last week. Someone better tell the boys at the SCPA whose reappointments require the governor’s signature. In yet another indication of their recent mischief-making, SCPA also told the legislators in Columbia last month that when SCPA shared with the Georgia Ports Authority’s leadership that SCPA intended to slow Jasper’s opening to 2035 or 2037, Georgia who said Savannah would be at capacity in 2028 indicated they would have to build a new terminal on Hutchison Island to accommodate the excess containers they expect they will handle between 2028 and 2037. Why not just get Jasper open before Georgia’s current facilities reach their capacity? Rep. Newton is spot on. What’s needed here is a little leadership (button-holing?) to keep The Jasper Ocean Terminal on its already lengthy timetable. What’s needed are clear orders from the top, and only the governors can provide it. Time will tell. I asked both governors’ press secretaries if the governors would be putting their heads together on this. Not surprisingly both ducked the question.

A message to VOTE NO on April 21 On Saturday, April 21, voters will decide the fate of the $76 million school referendum. Citizens Advocating Responsible Education (CARE) does not support this referendum. We have no confidence in the school district leadership or the school board’s ability to provide adequate financial oversight. We urge you to VOTE NO. The funds would be used to build one new school in Bluffton, make additions to two others in Bluffton, and build career and technical education buildings at three high schools. North of the Broad gets overlooked again in this referendum. Only $5 million would be spent north of the Broad on a new CATE (Career and Technical Education) building at Beaufort High School. Currently, there is a CATE building at Battery Creek High School. There has been no evidence presented by the school district to justify the need for three new CATE buildings. This is simply an effort to win votes. We now

spend millions at ACE, the other VOTech school, and the school board is considering expanding that relationship. About 200 Beaufort County students attend ACE. More than half of this referendum is set aside for a new school in Bluffton which, according to Superintendent Jeff Moss, would not be built for about five years. Mobile classrooms have been purchased to alleviate the overcrowding at two schools in Bluffton. All the other elementary schools in Bluffton are below capacity. Your taxes that pay for school debt will increase by 7% and will be reflected on your property tax bill as well as taxes on cars and boats. The $76 referendum does not include any funds to hire teachers for these schools, heat and cool these buildings, or maintain these buildings. Then, there’s the issue of trust. Superintendent Moss maintained that he was innocent for 10 months before he pled guilty to ethics violations. He was fined

and reprimanded by the State Ethics Commission. Yet the majority on the school board rewarded him with bonuses of more than $70,000 over the past two years. Moss has acknowledged that lack of trust was a key factor in the failed 2016 referendum. Neither the Superintendent nor the majority board members have done anything since then to restore public trust. In fact, the school board chairman recently told his colleagues that this is the “worst board” he has seen in more than 20 years. So, how can we trust them to provide the necessary oversight of a massive school building program? Now we have the FBI in town. The FBI has issued three subpoenas to district officials in connection with the construction of May River High School and River Ridge Academy, the very same schools that would be expanded with this referendum. This dysfunctional school board recently voted to spend up to $8,000 of

taxpayers’ money to hire a facilitator to improve interpersonal board relations-learning how to be civil, show respect, etc. What does this say about the board’s judgment? Our solution is to elect a new, responsible school board in November when seven seats are up for election. The first order of business needs to be an impartial third-party review of all facilities and student enrollment to figure out exactly what is needed. Since this is a special election, there will undoubtedly be a low voter turnout. Every vote will count. We urge you to send a strong message to Superintendent Moss and his rubber stamp board majority. VOTE NO. In-person absentee voting is available at the Board of Elections office located at 15 John Galt Road every weekday through April 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to annual and regular interim reports, there is no reporting on construction cost compared to estimate and budgets. I consider the current Council Chairman and Finance Committee Chair are also much to blame for these failures because of a total lack of establishing any policies. Beaufort County needs to bring in a new

county administrator with proven management skills. He also needs to have a great track record in successful leadership in business/industrial development. For the past 25 years our county has just fumbled around in this vital function. It is hoped that the November election will bring in leaders to make sure this mess is fixed. Jim Bequette

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Nine months have passed since the end of the last fiscal year, and still there is no audited report on the county website. This is totally ridiculous and only highlights irresponsible Beaufort County Council leaders and interim County Administrator. Most large corporations get their audited reports published within a month after the end of their B6

APRIL 12 - 18, 2018

fiscal year. There are also no interim reports for the current fiscal year, and it is three-fourths complete. First, I believe the interim County Manager had finance reporting to him before Kubic retired. So why should he be considered to become county administrator if he can't get things done timely?

WINE

Two robust Riojas represent best of Spain When it comes to Spanish reds, it’s hard to beat Riojas. Here is a chance to compare two wines, both from the Bodegas Riojanas winery. The Spanish wine region Rioja is named for its location on the River Ja — “Rio” being Spanish for “river.” Rioja wines come in red, white and rosé, but 85 percent are red. The region is divided into three subregions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja. Alta wines are from the western part of the region, with higher elevations and a more Old World style. Alavesa wines are similar but fuller bodied with more acidity. These vineyards are low density with large spacing between the vine rows. Baja wines come from a more Mediterranean (warmer) climate subregion and are deeply colored, more alcoholic, with lower acidity levels. Red Riojas are generally blends that are typically 60% Tempranillo (for flavors and aging potential), up to 20% Garnacha (for body and alcohol), with smaller amounts of Mazuelo (for flavor) and Graciano grapes (for aroma).

Additionally, Riojas come with various times of barrel and bottle aging — the longer the aging time, the higher the price. Tempranillo is a uniquely Spanish variety. The country is very proud of the indigeCelia Strong nous variety and its 2,000 year history of wine. These wines are as age worthy as those from Bordeaux and Burgundy, well-known French wine regions, but Riojas never got the recognition. Today, most Rioja wines are as good as their French counterparts, but way less expensive, which is excellent for consumers. Bodegas Riojanas makes our two wines, and the winery was established in 1890. Four decades later, at a time when bulk wines were more popular, they decided to concentrate on bottled wines, especially those aged in oak barrels, and it was an instrumental decision in the

history of Riojas. Today, Riojanas owns almost 500 acres of Tempranillo vineyards plus one of the largest vineyards of Mazuelo and Graciano, all with clay and limestone soils that is perfect for these three varieties. Fifth generation descendants of the company’s founders are still active in every step of production. Bodegas Riojanas Puerta Vieja Rioja Crianza Red Label is made from 80% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano. All the grapes are grown in company owned vineyards in Cenicero and Sonsierra in the Alta subregion. After harvest, the grapes are sorted, de-stalked and crushed, then controlled temperature fermentation and exceptionally long maceration times are used. The blend is aged 18 months in American oak barrels and 6 months in its bottles. The wine has intense cherry-red colors, aromas and flavors. It is very fruit forward with additional spicy notes and has a robust quality with pleasant, milder tannins and a long finish. This wine would pair with every day meals

such as burgers, meatloaf, stews, roast poultry, rice and pastas, and mild cheeses. For only $12.99. Bodegas Riojanas Puerta Vieja Crianza Silver Label is made from 100% Tempranillo grown in Cenicero and San Vicente de la Sonsierra estate vineyards. Harvesting these grapes and producing this wine is very similar to the Red Label with the same 18 months in American oak and six months in bottles. The silver label also has a cherry red color but it also has hints of licorice with spicy notes and toasty wood nuances. With just Tempranillo used to make this wine, the earthy side of this variety shows up. Still, the tannins are soft and velvety. If the Red Label is a New World style Rioja, this is an Old World style. Great for pairing with grilled seafood or sausages, olives and paella, this wine is only $13.99. Enjoy!
