Supporters pack Whale Branch Middle for Warren By Mike McCombs SEABROOK – More than 450 people – supporters and those whose curiosity got the best of them – packed Whale Branch Middle School on Monday night to hear U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren speak as part of her 2020 campaign for U.S. President. The 69-year-old Warren (D-Mass.) was the third Democratic presidential hopeful to visit Beaufort County over roughly a week’s time, joining former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke. Warren spoke for roughly an hour before taking questions from randomly chosen members of the audience.


Q&A WITH ELIZABETH WARREN By Mike McCombs SEABROOK – The Island News was given roughly 10 minutes with Elizabeth Warren, the senator from Massachussetts and 2020 Democratic candidate for president, prior to her organizational rally on Monday night at Whale Branch Middle School.

there was a battle in the Democratic Party between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, which Clinton won and then she moved on to the general election. And there’s a lot of people who may question who they voted for in that race. And then you have a (potential) candidate like Joe Biden, … didn’t run last time. You

may get some people from the last election who have some regrets. What makes these voters say Elizabeth Warren is the choice over these guys? Warren: I don’t think it’s about 2016. I think it’s about 2020. Right now, we have a government that’s working

Lady’s Island man shot, killed in Burton At approximately 2 a.m. Saturday, Beaufort County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a shooting incident that occurred outside of a residence on Laurel Street

East in Burton. According to the Sheriff’s Office, when they arrived, deputies learned that 36-year-old Clinton Robinson of Lady's Island had been shot and killed

by an unknown male subject. That subject allegedly fled the scene after the shooting. The Crime Scene Unit remained on the scene to process for forensic evidence, and

investigators continue to conduct interviews of witnesses. Beaufort County Coroner Edward Allen advised that a forensic autopsy was to be performed on Tuesday at the

Medical University of South Carolina to aid in the determination of the cause and manner of Robinson's death. The investigation is ongoing, and additional informa-

tion will be released when available. Anyone with information is urged to call Lance Corporal Dario Sosa at 843255-3435 or Crimestoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111.

Ridgeland woman convicted for DUI in fatal 2016 crash More than two years ago, 54-year-old Gordon Ward Sr. was riding his moped to work on U.S. Highway 21 when he was struck and killed in northern Beaufort County. On Wednesday, April 10, 25-year-old Jermasha Elexus Shadane Nelson of Ridgeland was found guilty of felony driving under the influence in the Sept. 5, 2016 crash that

killed Ward. A Beaufort County General Sessions jury of seven woman and five men Jermasha Nelson deliberated for less than two hours before returning a guilty verdict, and Circuit Court Judge Carmen Mullen

handed down a sentence of 14 years in prison. Dustin Whetsel of the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office prosecuted the case. “Mr. Ward was simply on his way to work when he was struck and killed,” Whetsel said “The defendant knew she hit someone and attempted to get out of the situation. She had total and utter disre-

gard for human life.” Ward was headed north on U.S. 21 near Detour Road when he was struck from behind by a 2015 Toyota driven by Nelson. A South Carolina highway patrolman testified Tuesday that Nelson topped 110 mph before the collision. The road’s speed limit is 60 mph. By retrieving collision data from the Nissan, which

collects information a few seconds before and after a catastrophic event, troopers could determine that Nelson barely lifted her foot off the accelerator before striking Ward’s moped. A trooper, emergency personnel, and the initial 911 caller, each testified that Nelson appeared to be intoxicated and smelled of alcohol.

Walls convicted in 2016 killing of Seigler A jury of five men and seven women on Thursday, April 11, found a Shell Point man guilty of murdering a disabled neighbor shortly after she received her monthly disability check and filled her prescriptions for pain medication. Brian David Walls, 38, was found guilty of killing 56-year-old Teresa Seigler in December 2016. Walls was sentenced to 40 years in prison, following the verdict from a Beaufort County General Sessions Court jury.

“Teresa had chronic pain and a number of prescriptions. Beyond these drugs, Brian David she was not a person of Walls means,” said Hunter Swanson of the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, who prosecuted the case. “Nonetheless, she would provide her neighbors a soft landing when they couldn’t pay their bills or afford groceries. Brian Walls and the

people he lived with were at her house often. “Brian knew when Teresa’s disability check came, and he knew when her prescriptions were filled. In other words, he knew when to pounce.” Swanson called 18 witnesses over two days of testimony. Circuit Court Judge G. Thomas Cooper handed down Thursday’s sentence. Walls’ criminal history includes convictions for simple assault, fraud, multiple counts of simple posses-

sion of marijuana, multiple counts of assault and battery, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. John Dontue Priester, 27, and Courtney Elizabeth Brock, 24, are also charged with Seigler’s murder, and Priester is accused of the arson of Seigler’s mobile home. Walls faces first-degree criminal sexual conduct, use of a vehicle without permission and conspiracy to kidnap charges in an unrelated incident shortly after Seigler’s murder.

Warren from page A1

Among the positions Warren touched on were raising the minimum wage, “common sense” gun legislation, protecting Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, health care as a human right, a wealth tax, discriminatory practices in the housing industry, her support for unions and attacking corruption in government head-on.

“I thought she was really good. I like a lot of her ideas,” Kate Hines, of Beaufort, said. “I’m not sure how easy they’re going to be to accomplish. But I liked her enthusiasm. I liked the fact that she has plans and has spelled them all out.” After the question-and-answer portion of the evening – during which she said she was “all-in” on legalizing marijuana – Warren enthusiastically took the time for photos with those who were willing to wait. Warren opened the event talking about her youth in Okla-

She has extreme enthusiasm for the middle class. Not middle America. The middle class.The way she related it to her own life. I remember the same thing in my life. If you worked, everyone was OK. Now, most of us are not.” homa, touching on her mother taking a minimum-wage job after her father’s heart attack to save the family home from foreclosure, something she pointed out could not be done today. “She has extreme enthusiasm for the middle class. Not

middle America. The middle class,” Larry Hines, husband to Kate, said. “The way she related it to her own life. I remember the same thing in my life. If you worked, everyone was OK. Now, most of us are not.” Warren was emotional when talking about doing more

to reduce gun violence. She pointed out that seven children are killed everyday by guns in America and that if gun violence was an illness, we would have addressed it by now. “The reason (we haven’t acted) is that the NRA holds our Congress hostage,”

Warren said. Larry Albany of Dale agrees with Warren on guns. “Get the guns off the street,” Albany said. “We have young people being killed every day. We had two just yesterday in Beaufort. And I’m tired of it.” Albany believes Warren has a real shot. But it’s not for any particular policy stance. “She has a great chance. I like her because she’s not afraid of Trump,” Albany said. “Anybody that’s not afraid of Trump can have my vote. So she’s got a great chance.”

Q&A WITH ELIZABETH WARREN (continued from page A1) great, … for the rich and powerful. It’s just not working much for anyone else. Right now is our big chance to change it. MM: Do you think having a big field like the Democratic Party does this election is a positive? Warren: That’s something, I’m sure, all the pundits have an opinion about. I’m just here talking about the reasons that I’m running for president. I’ve done more than 50 town halls, taken more than 250 un-screened questions. People want to talk about the price of prescription drugs. And the cost of child care They want to talk about student loan debt. And a decent public education. They want to talk about off-shore drilling. And a government, 50 different ways to slice it, that keeps working great for giant corporations. For billionaires. And not for them. MM: You mentioned prescription drugs. Health care. Warren: Uh huh. It’s killing people. MM: You’ve tried to tackle it once. What’s the solution? Warren: So, I believe that health care is a basic human right and we fight for basic human rights. I strongly support Medicare for all. Right now, we have three jobs in front of us. First is to defend the Affordable Care Act. This administration is trying through the courts, through the agencies, to do everything that they can to roll

back protections for millions of Americans. To take away protections for those who have pre-existing conditions. To knock kids 18 to 25 Elizabeth off their parents’ Warren health insurance plans. So between now and January 2021, we need to be in the trenches fighting to protect the health care access we have. It’s not perfect, but we don’t want to lose what’s there. Part 2 is we need to come in and pick the low-hanging fruit. Washington works great for giant drug companies. It just doesn’t work great for people trying to get a prescription filled. We can import drugs from Canada that meet our safety requirements but that can be as little as one 10th the cost that we pay here in the United States. We can authorize Medicare to negotiate with the drug companies. We can adopt my proposal on generic drugs, to reduce the cost on more than 90 percent of the prescription drugs out there. We should do the things that we can do, and we could do them fast. We just need the political courage to step up against the giant drug companies. And the third (part) is, we’ve got to find our path to Medicare for all. There are a lot of different proposals out there. Some say start lowering the age for Medicare from 65 to 60 to 55 to 50. Others say build it

from the bottom up, cover everybody under 30, then everybody under 35, then everybody under 40. Others say let employers buy in. Others say let employees buy in. There are a lot of different paths and different time frames. No one thinks we’re going to be able to flip a light switch. But we need a clear commitment that we’re going to get everybody covered at the lowest possible cost. And everything we know points toward Medicare being the way to do that. MM: How do you convince people that hear Medicare for all, and it doesn’t matter how you go about doing it, they’re instantly opposed? What can you say to those people to try and change their minds? Warren: You know, I look at it this way. I have three brothers. One’s a Democrat, two are not. There’s a lot of things we disagree on. But we all agree that nobody should go bankrupt over a medical problem. We all agree that our children and grandchildren should be covered by health care that they can afford. We all agree that people shouldn’t die just because they don’t have the money to pay medical bills. We all agree that rural hospitals shouldn’t close because they’re trying to cover too many patients that don’t have health insurance or a government plan to back them up. Our values are very much the same. We just have to figure out a right way to get there.

I think we start by talking about our values. What it is that we care about. I think that’s the place where we begin. MM: Obviously, (Beaufort) is a small town with three military bases in a very small area. This is a military town. There’s a lot of retired military here, as well. Really, two parts. One is veterans and their issues, coming home from what has really been a two-decade war. How do we better handle how we’re treating the people who are defending our country? Warren: All three of my brothers joined the military. I saw, up close, the sacrifices that they made, and the sacrifices of the families of those who serve make. When people are willing to step up and make those kinds of sacrifices, then we, as Americans, have a commitment to honor our promises with them. And that means we don’t use our military to try and solve non-military problems. It means that when they have served us, so honorably and selflessly, that we make sure that they have the full range of health care that they need. And every other federal benefit that we promised them. And that we do everything that we can to help them when they leave the military, to find good jobs, good housing and be the honored civilian members of our country. MM: The other side of that coin, we’ve been at war for 20 years. Is

there an end to that road, or … Warren: I’ve been. I serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee. I’ve been to Afghanistan and Iraq. I was in Afghanistan with John McCain on what I think was his last trip to visit our troops, Fourth of July, a year and a half ago. The question I ask everyone on the ground in Afghanistan is “Describe to me what winning looks like and how we can measure if we’re coming closer to that or slipping further away.” I asked civilians and military. I asked generals and privates. I asked people in the Afghan government and people who have served in our own government. And nobody could give an answer. Endless war is not an answer. Great nations do not fight endless wars. Right now, after having spent 17 years (in power), the Afghan government controls less than 60 percent of the land. The border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, that criminals, terrorist, smugglers can move back and forth at will. The opium trade is stronger than ever. There are multiple terrorist groups that are supported by different outside interests that are taking root in different parts of the country. That’s not success. And spending more of the time of our honorable men and women who serve, and putting them in harm’s way in Afghanistan. It’s not in our national interest. We’ve got to bring them home.

If you’ve been dragging your feet when it comes to estate planning, you aren’t alone. According to a 2017 survey by*, nearly six out of 10 American adults lack even basic estate-planning documents. Even if you’ve put some documents together, are you sure you have what you need? “Anyone who has assets needs to get organized and engage in estate planning for the benefit of those they leave behind,” says John F. Padberg, Planning & Life Events Specialist at Wells Fargo Advisors. “While each person has unique circumstances to plan for, there are some key documents that can form the foundation for most estate plans.” The 10 documents outlined here can serve as that base set. Six of the 10 are best kept as signed hard copies; the remaining four can be stored digitally (if you wish). Signed documents to safeguard as hard copies: 1. Will. This important set of instructions directs assets that you own individually (with no beneficiary designation), can designate a guardian for minors, and appoints an executor to administer your estate after you pass. You may opt to send copies to certain interested individuals, but keep the signed original in a secure place, like a safe deposit box, that’s known to people who will need access to it, such as an executor or close family members. 2. Power of attorney (POA) for financial matters. This POA names someone you trust as the person to help manage your financial affairs. It could be structured to become effective at the time you sign it or could be triggered to take effect upon becoming incapacitated. 3. Durable power of attorney for health care. This POA appoints an agent to make medical decisions for you if you can’t make them yourself. 4. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) release authorization. As a stand-alone document or as part of other documents, such as a

durable POA for health care, this privacy-related document allows you to explicitly declare who should have access to your important medical information. 5. Living will. Also called an advance directive, these instructions dictate your wishes about prolonging your life in cases like a terminal illness or if you’re in a permanent incapacitated state. 6. Revocable living trust. Like a will, this document also directs how your assets will pass to your beneficiaries, but it may be funded during your lifetime and can provide for incapacity planning, as well. A revocable trust can provide some benefits that you wouldn’t typically get with a will, with more privacy and without the costs and hassle of probate court. Documents that you can keep in a digital format: 7. Current net worth statement. This lists all of your assets and liabilities and what they’re worth. You could even include how various assets are titled. A net worth statement can be a big help in the process of getting organized, reveal the true scope of your estate, and provide your advisors with a very useful tool as they work to put together a customized plan for you. It can also save your successors significant work in figuring out all that you have. Keep this document updated so that it reflects current information about all of your accounts, real estate, liabilities, and other items. 8. List of professional advisors. Includes contact information for important advisors, such as your financial advisor, attorney, CPA, insurance agents, and doctors. 9. Medical condition record. This is an informal way to let your trusted agent know about your health status when there’s a need. 10. A guide to these documents (both physical and digital). Those you’ll leave behind will

appreciate a simple catalog of all the estate-planning documents you've prepared and their locations so they can find them without hassle. “This list is a good place to start, especially for those who haven’t prepared any estate-planning documents at all,” Padberg says. “But remember that each plan is different, and there certainly could be a need for other items, especially as the level of planning gets more sophisticated.” With the assistance of your financial advisor and estate-planning attorney, you can get a basic estate plan put in place, and, as appropriate, discuss other strategies for preserving wealth. A financial advisor can talk you through options that can save you time and money when you sit down with an attorney. One final important tip: Set a time on your calendar for a regular review to keep all these documents up to date. * Trust services available through banking and trust affiliates in addition to non-affiliated companies of Wells Fargo Advisors.

Alexis Ortiz struck out all nine batters she faced and went 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBIs in an 18-0 win in the first game, and Journeigh Doray racked up 12 strikeouts in a five-inning one-hitter in a 15-0 win in the second game. In game 1, Emily Crosby was 2-for-2 with a double, two runs, and two RBIs, McKenzie Young was 2-for-2 with two runs and three RBIs, and Jamiah Johnson was 2-for-2 with two runs and two RBIs. In game 2, Doray helped her own cause, going 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs, Margaret Schubert was 3-for-4 with

three runs and three RBIs, Jasmine Nolan was 3-for-4 with a double, three runs, and an RBI, Johnson was 2-for-4 with two RBIs, and Elisa Williams was 2-for-3 and scored a run. A day earlier, Ortiz struck out 15 in a two-hit shutout as Battery Creek blanked Thomas Heyward 9-0 in a clash of area softball powers. Ortiz issued one walk and hit one batter in the gem, and Doray was 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBIs to lead the Dolphins at the plate. Kelsey Hill was 3-for-4 with an RBI, and Young and Crosby each went 2-for-4 and scored twice for Battery Creek. The Dolphins (10-7, 6-0) wrap up region play with a doubleheader at Wade Hampton on April 22.

nings of relief. Beaufort managed only three hits while being shut out in the finale. Jacob Anderson had a triple, and Luke Londono and Oliver Holmes each added a single for the Eagles. Holmes took the loss, allowing four runs over three innings. Beaufort (18-4, 7-2) are playing in the Hanahan Invitational Tournament in Charleston this week.

Eagles take two of three vs. Colleton County

Beaufort High rallied for a 7-3 road win Thursday to clinch its three-game Region 7-4A series against Colleton County, but the Cougars took the series finale 4-0 on Friday. The Eagles erased a 3-0 deficit with four runs in the fifth, then

tacked on three in the sixth to claim the second game of the three-game series. Paul Winland went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, Jeffrey Smyth was 2-for-2 with a triple and an RBI, and Rhogue Wallace had a two-run double for the Eagles. Wes Graves allowed three runs and eight hits over five innings to earn the win, and Jeffrey Smyth closed it out with two scoreless in-

Beaufort Academy rolled to another region win April 9, hammering Palmetto Christian Academy 8-1. Joe Stowe, Charlie Weeden, Dawson Coleman, Edward McCormick, Zach Lee, Ben Trask, Evan Rankin, and Jared Huebel each scored a goal for BA. The Eagles (10-1, 5-0) travel to Cathedral Academy for a 4:30 p.m. kickoff on April 22.


BHS falters in final two games vs. Cougars

After keeping its region title hopes alive with a win in the opener of its series with Colleton County, Beaufort High dropped the final two games of the series and slipped to the No. 3 seed from Region 7-4A. The Eagles lost the second game 14-4 on Thursday, as they were unable to overcome 10 errors that led to

12 unearned runs. Essence Champion provided a bright spot for Beaufort, going 2-for-2 with two homers and four RBIs, and Madison Sanchez was 2-for-3 and scored twice. The Cougars won the finale 11-8 on Friday. Carleigh Coolong was 2-for-4 with three RBIs, Sanchez was 2-for-5 with an RBI, and Kidron Martin was 2-for-4 for the Eagles. Beaufort (7-13, 5-4) travels to May River on Tuesday before opening the Class 4A playoffs April 25.


Eagles 2nd at Oyster Reef

Hilton Head Prep posted a team score of 154 over nine holes to win a five-team match among Beaufort County rivals Thursday at Oyster Reef Golf Club. Three Hilton Head Prep teammates — JT Herman, Jump Winwon, and Thomas Ford — shot 38 to share medalist honors on a wet, windy day. Mackenzie Gallagher (40) rounded out the scoring for the Dolphins, who edged Beaufort High by nine shots. Jerry Bruns (39) and Max Kase (40) led the Eagles to a second-place finish, seven shots ahead of Hilton Head High (170). Ben Batson led the Seahawks with a 40. Bluffton High (175) was fourth with Wayne Toon (41) leading the Bobcats, and May River (182) was fifth, led by Andrew Swanson’s 44.

Beaufort’s Anderson right at home at Harbour Town

“Home games” are rare in professional golf, even when your hometown is a golf-crazed place like Beaufort County. Beaufort’s Mark Anderson hopes to make the most of the home-course advantage this week when he tees it up in the 51st annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. Anderson is playing the Heritage for the seventh time — the sixth as a professional — and he has enjoyed success at Harbour Town in the past, making the cut four times. His best finish was a tie for 13th in 2012, when he carded rounds of 69 and 68 on the weekend to charge up the leaderboard. Anderson is playing fulltime on the Tour this season, where he sits third in the season-long rankings thanks to a win at the Country Club de Bogota Championship in Colombia in February. The 33-year-old Beaufort Academy alumnus hasn’t played a PGA Tour event since the 2017 Wyndham Championship.

He Did It for You! Was Jesus in the wrong place at the wrong time? Nobody messes with Chuck Norris. After becoming a world champion of martial arts, Chuck Norris was noticed by Hollywood and starred in countless action movies. In recent years he has become an entertaining image of invincible strength. One can’t imagine a fighter like Chuck Norris getting cornered in a street and captured by bad guys. He could fight his way out of any trap. The only way that he could get taken is if he chose to give himself up, part of a greater master plan. Jesus was arrested and treated like a criminal. During his three years of ministry, Jesus had done nothing wrong, but upon visiting Jerusalem he was arrested and taken to court. The witnesses made up lies about him, and he was sentenced to death. Jesus was brutally mocked, tortured, and put on a cross between two criminals. Jesus freely chose to give his life for us.

Jesus gave his life so we may have true life. It was all part of a divine rescue mission. Jesus knew that we were all captives to sin, and we could do nothing on our own to free ourselves. Jesus chose to give his life so that we could be freed from sin and restored as sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father. As true God, he could offer a perfect sacrifice of love. As true man, he was able to offer this sacrifice on behalf of all of humanity. His sacrifice offers us the gift of union with God, here on earth and one day in heaven. Jesus died for you personally! Jesus did not just give his life for all of us as a human race. On Good Friday, he knew each of us who would ever exist. He chose to give his life for you personally. Even if you were the only person who needed to be saved from sin, he would have still done the same! What joy as Christians, knowing that Jesus loves us so much that he chose to give his life for us!

One might imagine Jesus as someone who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But remember that Jesus was God in our midst. He knew ahead of time what was going to happen and freely chose to allow it to happen. He was much more powerful than any action star. With a mere thought, he could have stopped the proceedings at any time. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep. A few months before his arrest, Jesus described himself as the good shepherd. When wolves come, a good shepherd sacrifices himself for his flock. He too will choose to lay down his life for us, his flock: “No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own. I have power to lay it down, and power to take it up again. This command I have received from my Father.” (John 10:18)

100 Days of Serving the Lowcountry By Joe Cunningham It has been an honor to serve as your Congressman over the last 100 days, and I am grateful for the opportunity I have been given. When I ran for Congress, I promised to fight for the Lowcountry and break through the political tribalism and gridlock that defines Washington. I committed to working with both parties and our President to get things done. Over the last 100 days, I have found ample room to work across the aisle. Almost 70 percent of the bills I’ve cosponsored or introduced have been bipartisan. Since I was sworn-in on Jan. 3, I have introduced bills to ban offshore drilling, close the Charleston loophole, en-

sure carbon monoxide detectors in public housing units and improve veterans’ access to pediatric care. I’m proud to be a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers’ caucus, a group of Democrats and Republicans who meet weekly to discuss common-sense policies and issues on which we can work together. Recently, the publication Congressional Quarterly ranked me as the most independent member of Congress. During the 2018 campaign, I promised to do everything I could to protect our coastline from offshore oil exploration. So, on my fourth day in office, I introduced bipartisan legislation to bring back the ban on offshore drilling. I am thankful for the continued

support of the Lowcountry’s coastal mayors and legislators in this pursuit. In an era of divided government and dysfunction, the House has managed to pass meaningful legislation that solve problems on which I campaigned. One of the bills of which I am most proud is H.R. 1, the For the People Act – once in a lifetime reform legislation that combats the culture of corruption in D.C. and ensures Washington serves the people. H.R. 1 promotes clean and fair elections, ends partisan gerrymandering, reins-in the influence of special interests, and takes dark money out of our political system. We also passed the bipartisan Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure

equal pay for equal work. In the last 100 days we also passed the first pieces of commonsense gun safety legislation in over 25 years. Alongside Majority Whip Clyburn and Republican Rep. Peter King, I introduced a bill that would close the Charleston loophole and give law enforcement adequate time to conduct a background check. Passing this bipartisan legislation as Jennifer Pinckney — the widow of Mother Emanuel Pastor Clementa Pinckney — and her young daughters looked on from the House gallery was one of the most humbling moments of my life. We also passed a historic and bipartisan public lands package, which included the permanent reau-


My husband called me from the grocery store the other day. He said, “I’m here in the flower department and I can pick up an Easter Lily for the centerpiece on Sunday.” I told him not to bother, I already had something for the centerpiece. When he got home and looked in the dining room, he saw a beautiful butterfly embossed tablecloth, our good china and silver, and there in the middle of the table was the Yellow Poinsettia he had bought for Christmas. I had put it in an Easter Bas-

Now what?

He laughed and agreed with me. “Why waste a perfectly good plant.” Now this Poinsettia has been with us since early last December. He had called me from the store, two weeks before Christmas, and asked me what color Poinsettias I wanted and how many. I told him

to only buy one since we were going to be out of town with relatives and I did not want to have too many dead Poinsettias lying around the house when we got back. He came home with a beautiful yellow Poinsettia, my favorite, although the tag says it is white.

Before we left for our trip, I watered it and put it in the kitchen sink so none of the leaves would be on the living room rug. To our surprise, when we got back home, it was still alive. So, I gave it more water and placed it on a plate in the living room, knowing it would probably be

thorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund and created the Reconstruction Era National Historic Park in Beaufort. There is still so much to do. We need to address the rising costs of health care and prescription drugs, and continue to protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. I stand ready to work with both parties, including President Trump, to make a serious investment in the Lowcountry’s ailing infrastructure. We need to finally get serious about tackling our national debt, which both Democrats and Republicans have allowed to spiral out of control. The national debt just hit a record $22 trillion, equaling about $67,000

for every man, woman and child in the Lowcountry. One of my very first votes in Congress was to reinstate payas-you-go (PAYGO) rules to offset any new spending. I also support a Balanced Budget Amendment to prohibit the government from spending more than it receives, and recently voted against a Democratic spending plan that I believe was fiscally irresponsible. Over the remainder of my term, I will continue to work with members of both parties and our President to make sure Washington works for you. I will continue to proudly serve the Lowcountry and will never forget that it was you who sent me here.

dead in a few weeks. But no, it lived. Valentines Day went by, and then Saint Patrick’s Day and still she thrived. Since she looked healthy, I kept watering her, knowing that it would not be long before I saw the leaves lying on the plate. She seemed to do very well siting on the end table in the living room with its full sunlight. Although I did not want her to die, I was really surprised she was still alive. I decided to do some research. According to the garden experts, I was doing everything wrong. First, my

husband should have bought a red Poinsettia in the first place since they live longer. (I can almost hear my yellow plant laughing) Then, I should have been watering from the bottom up. Finally, on April 1, I should have placed her in hibernation. But despite my incompetence, she and I have had a longer relationship than any Poinsettia I have ever owned. And so, the Easter Poinsettia is the centerpiece on our table. But as it turns out, we are not the only ones. In Chili and Peru, they call them the Flor de Pascua, the Easter Poinsettia.

No more Fritz Hollings out there for SC, nation By Scott Graber On Tuesday, Ernest F. “Fritz” Hollings was buried. Many remember Hollings as the tall, photogenic, gravel-voiced senator who went up to Washington in the 1960s. Some remember he was South Carolina’s governor. And those folks who routinely read the Island News know that our own Billy Keyserling ran his presidential campaign in 1983. But Hollings was more complicated, and more interesting than his resume. In the summer of 1967 I was living in Charleston and played recreational tennis using the HarTru courts at

The Citadel — the college where I had just graduated. And from time to time, I would play (doubles) with Fritz

Hollings. In those days, the newly minted Senator also was well known, and sometimes vilified, for playing tennis with Bobby Kennedy and his wife, Ethel, at their home at Hickory Hill. Those games sometimes included Paul Newman, Teddy Kennedy and other left-leaning folks who were in the gravitational pull

of the Kennedy clan. His ‘collaboration’ with the enemy was routinely brought forward when Fritz ran for re-election. Furthermore, his occasional left-leaning votes in the Senate were also highlighted and “flip-flopper” was the term used in opposition advertising. About this time Bobby Kennedy, now a senator from New York, became interested in hunger and malnutrition and decided he was going on tour. Kennedy decided that our own Jasper County would be a great place to start. When Fritz Hollings heard this he thought this was a bad idea.

Writing, in his autobiography “Making Government Work,” he said: “At this point, I had had enough. ‘Now look here,’ I shouted ‘You go down there, and I’m going to get on a plane and go straight up to Harlem. I’m going to call every TV station, and I’m going to walk through Harlem for four or five days, everywhere I can, and find every rat eating every child’s eye out. And everywhere I go I’m going to say why isn’t Kennedy here?’ ” After this call Bobby, apparently upon reflection, decided to forego Jasper County in favor of Kentucky. And Fritz, having avoided embarrassment, might have gone back to tennis. But Hollings was also obsessed with hunger and malnutrition and believed that food stamps (legislation slowly working its way through Congress) would be a good place to start. “It still stuns me to think that there I was in 1969, in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, in Beaufort County, standing in another shack that housed fifteen black people. It had

no heat, no running water, no bath, no toilet, inside or out. The cracks in the wall were covered by old copies of the Savannah Morning News. The total store of food in the shack consisted of a slab of fatback, a half-filled jar of locally harvested oysters, and a stick of margarine.” And in this cause, Fritz was on his own. “Mendel Rivers, the popular and powerful Congressman who represented the First Congressional District, including Beaufort and Charleston, described me as ‘Hookworm Hollings.’ And added, ‘I have no intention of immortalizing poverty or dishing out food stamps.’ ” Fritz also worried about health care. In his autobiography, he also said: “The poor were not only hungry, but without a hospital. Even the ones nearby would turn them away. Working with Dr. Tom Bryan and Sarge (Shriver), the OEO instituted the Beaufort-Jasper Comprehensive Health Center, the first such facility in the nation. It could take care of the hungry poor for about a third of the established

hospitals.” It would be mistaken to say that Fritz was not concerned with the polls — he loved the Senate and wanted to stay there. So, as re-election approached, he would modify his positions in order to placate South Carolina’s conservative Upstate. Perhaps he would cut-back on his tennis matches with Teddy. Notwithstanding these shifts, I think most voters knew that Fritz was better informed than they were. And so they let Fritz have his votes—votes that they would not have cast—believing that maybe, just maybe Hollings knew more about the issues than they did. But here’s the thing — there are no more Fritz Hollings out there. These days our senators first look to their inhouse house pollster — then vote accordingly. On Tuesday, we buried a good, fine man who gave South Carolina governance way beyond his weight class. Scott Graber is a lawyer, novelist, veteran columnist and longtime resident of Port Royal.

It’s just a name By Celia Strong It may be just a name, but names can define who you are. Before you even open your mouth. With wines, this is so true. Just like their source, a wine’s name can make a big difference. Even helping them to sell better. With some grape varieties, this is especially true. For example – Pinot Gris. Or is it Pinot Grigio? Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are actually the same grape. The former Celia is the French Strong version of its name, and the latter is the Italian version. Languages only. This variety is a mutant of Pinot Noir, a very unstable variety in the vineyards, and is related to Pinot Blanc. Pinot Noir has a dark red/purple skin, Pinot Blanc has a green skin and Pinot Gris has a mix of skin colors – brownish pink to black and white, sometimes several colors on one single grape skin. In Alsace, France, Pinot Gris wines are generally fuller bodied with some spiciness in their flavors. (An excellent one to try is Hugel Pinot Gris.) These wines have moderate acidity, higher alcohol levels, and an almost “oily” texture that gives them their fuller, heavier body.

This style is often duplicated in New Zealand, Washington and Oregon. Italian Pinot Grigios are lighter bodied and more acidic, so noticeably drier. Often, these wines come from grapes that are harvested earlier in order to retain acidity and show less fruitiness in the finished wine. California and Australia versions usually use the “Grigio” name for their wines. Of course, all this is a generality for the use of one name over the other. In districts of northeastern Italy, because the heritage of many of the wines produced there, some producers make Pinot Gris. (Try Villa Wolf Pinot Gris!) California, because of its huge variety of soils and climates, has some wines that are more Alsatian style. Plus many that are their own unique style. (Think about some barrel aging time.) Not being restricted by any label laws, like in Europe, producers are free to choose either name. If their surveys report “Grigio” on their label will sell more than “Gris,” the decision is made. With no regard to wine style. Not good, not bad. Just the way it is. J Pinot Gris is a perfect, and unique, California wine to look at. J Vineyards and Winery started out, in 1986, as a family extension of Jordan. Mostly for sparkling wine. Over time, J grew, made more wines, and developed its own fans. Today J Pinot Gris, Pi-

not Noir and Chardonnay are flourishing. J Pinot Gris is that unique example of California Pinot Gris. Warm, sunny growing conditions, plenty of water for the vines, not too late a harvest. The grapes are hand picked and pressed as whole clusters. Gently, so that minimal harsh components from seeds and skins are not transferred into the wine. Each source of these grapes was fermented separately, at cool temperatures in stainless steel, each aged separately, and then blended into the final wine. This enables the wine to have its unique flavor and texture profile. Malolactic fermentation is not done. Each and every step is chosen to augment the wine’s fruitiness, balance, and complexity. A glass of J Pinot Gris starts with an explosion of fruit forwardness. Yes, fruitier like Alsatian Pinot Gris, and still more in the complexity and abundance of fruits. Honeysuckle, tangerine, kaffir lime. Followed by green apples, Meyer lemons, tangy pineapple. Florals notes, too. Crisp and clean. Minerality on its finish. Dry and fruity and perfumy like Alsace. Big fruitiness and mild acidity and fuller body like California. One of the few California Pinot Gris. Unique. For $14.99. Enjoy. Celia Strong works at Bill’s Liquor & Fine Wines on Lady’s Island.
