Parking along both sides of Bay Street will be open except for those in the immediate area of streetlight construction. As for the traffic signal mast arms

along Charles Street, motorists should expect temporary lane closures and traffic delays as crews begin installing the new traffic signal mast arms at three locations: • Charles and Bay streets • Charles and Craven streets • Charles and Boundary streets. Alternate routes are recommended when possible. Concrete work to improve the handicap ramps will continue this week at the intersection of Craven and Charles streets. The contractor, Walker Brothers, will bore under the intersection there this week.

The employee reported that he had noticed the suspect loitering outside the motel, and went out to see if he could offer any assistance. The suspect initially stated that he was looking for a friend’s room, then brandished a handgun and forced the employee back inside to the front desk. Once inside, he demanded the employee open the cash register. After taking the register’s cash drawer, the suspect fled the area. The suspect was described as a black male between 30-40 years of age, 6’00”, 180 lbs wearing dark clothing. The Sheriff ’s Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Sgt.

‘Mad as Hell’ By David M. Taub

In Paddy Chayefsky’s classic work titled “Network,” a deranged TV anchorman Howard Beale goes bonkers on the air and declares: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” His large viewing audience, equally angry and uproarious, chorus: “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!” Well, I know how Howard felt, and I am pleased to see that so many of my fellow Beaufortonians seem to feel the same outrage that has now enveloped the controversial and ill-conceived plan — River Place — for redevelopment of the marina parking lot. I am optimistic to believe the mayor and city council, the City’s Redevelopment Commission and the sole-source developers the city selected for the downtown marina parking lot project are listening now to the thunderous voices of anger and outrage being raised by an aroused citizenry unified in their opposition to River Place. I, like the growing list of well over 1,000 of my fellow Beaufortonians, wish to see the city leadership replace the River Place project with what is being referred to as the Civic Green Plan. What is the Civic Green Plan I endorse? In its simplest form it is, with some yet to be decided tweaking, a plan that the city has already adopted,

namely Phase II of the Sasaki Plan for upgrading and expanding Waterfront Park. Phase I has already been done, comprised of renovation of the Pavilion, construction of public restrooms, remodeling of the children’s playground, and additional brick work throughout the park. Phase II, on hold due to funding considerations, calls for elimination of asphalt and replacing it with open green space, an enhanced Farmer’s Market, new marina ship store, and a bandstand for live music performances. Billy Keyserling (now mayor) and Donnie Beer (now Mayor Pro Tempore) were on City Council when the plan was adopted and they voted for it. It remains an unsolved mystery why now they and the other members of the current City Council (absent George O’Kelly, steadfastly in opposition) apparently have abandoned a highly desirable plan they previously adopted in favor of one of unknown speculative and uncertain virtue. If the expansion of Waterfront Park was a good idea when the city adopted it around 2004, I, and my fellow Beaufortonians, believe it is an excellent plan today, far superior in every respect to that proposed in River Place. In the few weeks since Mr. Chaffin presented his ephemeral “vision” of River Place, over 1,500 of our citizens have signed a petition beseeching city’s

quotes of life from the millennial generation

Know what friendship is By Mayah Hawthorne

“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” — Oprah Winfrey This quote by Oprah Winfrey is stating one main thing: There is no reading between the lines if you truly know what friendship is. This is stating that a friend is a person who will stick by you no matter the situation. Whether you’re rich or poor, they will still be there for you. This quote is basically saying no matter how much money you have and material things you have, it doesn’t matter

because I’m your friend and I like you for you, not your items. Friendship is a gift and Mayah Hawthorne It shouldn’t be taken for granted. Not many people can be a friend, so when you have a good one, appreciate your relationship with that person. Mayah Hawthorne is a sophomore at Battery Creek High School.

officials to abandon this project. But we are not in favor of only stopping what I, and many others believe River Place is: “the wrong plan, at the wrong place, at the wrong time.” Rather, we favor replacing it with a grand plan to expand the Waterfront Park and add more green space and open vistas — River Place proposes just the opposite. The Civic Green plan will add to the economic vitality of the city and its precious historic downtown. Virtually every study done in communities such as ours, regarding adding open green space to attract locals and visitors is successful — economically, socially, and environmentally. The Civic Green Plan, in stark and graphic contrast to River Place, is “the right plan, in the right place, at the right time.” Good government demands elected officials lead with judiciousness and intelligence, and it also requires an informed active and engaged citizenry. If we believe in participatory democracy at

its most basic level, now is the time for citizens to have their voices heard, loud and clear — a clarion call from them to our elected officials to provide true and meaningful leadership. Sign the petition by going online and register your opposition on social media — the council members are checking these sites every day and they will hear your voices. Come to the council meetings, stand and be heard. The great 19th Century philosopher Edmund Burke is often quoted as saying with insight as certain today as then: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.” Nothing less than the very foundation and future of our irreplaceable landmark historic district and its unique and treasured downtown and Waterfront Park is at stake. “We the People” cannot afford to be silent and do nothing. David M. Taub was the former mayor of the city of Beaufort.

Lee’s Flooring & Rugs going out of business Lee’s Flooring & Rugs is shutting its doors Monday, April 28 after 25 years of serving the Beaufort community. Owner Kathy Henry is retiring. “I love our store and have enjoyed being a part of the local business community,” said Ms. Henry. “I will continue to be involved in community activities, just not as a business owner. I’m looking forward to the freedom that comes with retirement.” A retirement sale to eliminate rug inventory will end Monday, April 28. Lee’s is located inside of Perimeter

Walk, a one-stop home furnishing center anchored by FWDG, a furniture store established in 1972. The retirement sale inventory is being shown both in the Lee’s Flooring store as well as in the FWDG foyer. FWDG employees will assist in selling the rugs. The product has been marked down to its lowest pricing. Larry Mark, owner of FWDG, says that Kathy and Lee’s Flooring and Rugs will be missed here once closed. “Rugs-N-More, a division of Lee’s, was our first

tenant when my partners and I built Perimeter Walk,” said Mark. “Kathy and Chuck Henry showed confidence in our new and unique concept. I think it worked for them. I know it worked for us.” When asked if he knew if anything would go in the former Lee’s location after the sale, Mark said, “Well, I think it is perfectly suited for a rug store,” but wouldn’t say more about future plans. For more information, please contact Larry Mark at 843-524-8695.

How to transfer insurance when you move away By State Farm™ Employee

We all know how stressful moving can be: There’s a massive list of tasks to perform. So it’s no surprise that making new insurance arrangements might not jump out as your first priority. But do yourself a favor: Don’t wait. The process isn’t as tough as it seems. Below are a few key questions to investigate about moving and insurance. They don’t cover everything, but they should get you going in the right direction. 1. Have you talked to your agent? If you’re happy with your insurance company, give your agent a call. Your agent should be able to tell you whether you’ll need to find a new agent and how to transfer your policies to your new address. If you want to find a State Farm agent in your new neighborhood, you can use the Find an Agent app to search by ZIP Code. You’ll see a map of offices and a list of agent profiles, including contact info. 2. What about new insurance? And transferring insurance? Talking with an agent is the best way to find out what you’ll need to do to get new insurance or transfer your insurance to your new address. Your agent will also help you understand insurance requirements in your new location. If you’re moving between states, keep in mind that insurance coverage varies across states. For example, in California, due to the high frequency

of earthquakes, you need to take special precautions to make sure your home is safe and secure in case an earthquake occurs. That’s not the case in Indiana! Different states also have different auto insurance laws, and if you’re moving to a new state, you’ll need a new auto insurance policy – plain and simple. Most state laws require you to have homeowner’s insurance before you even buy a home. If you’re covered by State Farm, you should be able to get a prorated credit from your old homeowner’s policy when you’re signing up for a new one in a new state. 3. Are your possessions covered while you’re moving? Depending on how you’ve chosen to move — hired movers, rental truck, a portable container, or DIY in the back of your old Honda — your property may or may not be covered between the time it leaves your home and arrives at its final destination. Some homeowner policies will cover your property everywhere, regardless of whether it’s in your home or in a moving truck. Other policies won’t cover anything once it’s out your door. So double-check your policy or call your agent. If your own insurance policy won’t cover your property, you can get coverage through your moving company. By federal law, moving companies have to offer supplemental insurance for your property that will cover a set percentage of replacement costs, but you’ll need to increase that amount to get full coverage.

Show of hands: Support Who loves to f loss? continued from page 1

By Jennifer Wallace

In my line of work, I hear a lot of confessionals on a daily basis. No I’m not a priest, but a dentist! I hear over half (and that’s being generous) of my adult patients admit before I even take a look in their mouth, they hate or refuse to attempt to floss. In addition to brushing, flossing has been the gold standard of care for preventing cavities between the teeth. It’s also an important and effective way to remove plaque and biofilm from below the gum line that causes periodontal disease. The patient’s ability to perform regular and effective self-care is important to the long-term success of therapeutic and restorative treatment and overall mouth/body well-being. Not to stray too far off the original subject, I’d like to say that your dentist isn’t just interested in looking at the health of your teeth. There is a significant reason why the dentist also asks about your medical history, medications you may take or any other changes/ concerns since your last dental checkup. It’s because of the mouth/whole body connection. Systemic “whole body” problems can be detected or worsened when bacteria forms a biofilm under the gums resulting in gum pockets that further trap bacteria and debris. That bacteria not only inflames the gums but kills cells and can invade connective tissues and blood vessels. Your body’s immune system creates white blood cells to fight this but the combination of the bacteria and those blood cells along with toxins and proteins can line the arteries. According to The Journal of Dental Research, severe periodontal infection (gum disease and bone loss), if untreated, may increase the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, complications of diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes and respiratory disease. So in essence, it’s hard to treat the mouth effectively without a healthy body’s immune system to deliver positive results. Now that I have your attention, I understand that lots of people find flossing difficult, and some don’t really have the dexterity to do it well. I hear

Dress for any occasion

patients say “It is so time-consuming, and I don’t seem to be very good at it or I know I should be flossing but my teeth are too tight.” What if I told you that I can introduce you to a way of flossing that has not only been proven as more effective than traditional string flossing in the professional journals but also in my own practice on Lady’s Island. The water flosser is significantly better than brushing alone, which most children and young adults do, or they brush along with string flossing. Additionally, research has demonstrated that patients who present with gingivitis, mild to moderate periodontitis, diabetes, and good oral hygiene can benefit from using a water flosser. A healthy pocket is 1-3 mm in depth with no bleeding. Traditional brushing and string flossing can reach 1-2 mm below the gum line. Water flossing can reach up to 6 mm! Need the scientific proof? A study was done to compare the plaque removal efficiency of the Waterpik® Water Flosser to string floss. Seventy subjects participated in this randomized, single use, single blind, parallel clinical study and had not used any form of oral hygiene for 23-25 hours prior to their dental appointment. Patients were put in two groups: WaterFlossers or waxed string floss. Both groups were instructed to manual brush for two minutes. Group 1 used the Water Flosser with 500 ml of warm water and group 2 used waxed string floss cleaning all areas between the teeth. Subjects were observed to make sure they covered all areas and followed instructions. Scores were recorded for the whole mouth, marginal, interproximal, facial, and lingual regions for each subject. Results proved the Waterpik® Water Flosser was more effective than string floss for overall plaque removal on all surfaces of the teeth. I would suggest you ask your dentist or dental hygienist to recommend tools that can tailor your at home hygiene regimen to not only improve your overall health but make your dental visits easier.

Prior to receiving the infusion of stem cells at the Medical University of South Carolina, Elaine Senn went through weeks of chemotherapy and radiation that destroyed the immune factors in her blood. As a result, she needs an extensive amount of blood and blood products. Over the last two months, the Beaufort community has rallied around the Coosa Elementary School media assistant and former assistant girls’ basketball coach at Beaufort High School, dedicating a halfdozen blood drives in her honor. The next event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. next Tuesday, April 29 at Battery Creek High School. Several more blood drives have been set for next month. The dates include May 2 at Whale Branch Early College High School in Seabrook, May 9 at Beaufort High and May 12 and 13 at Beaufort Memorial Hospital. In addition to the dedicated blood drives, donors also can give blood at The Blood Alliance Donor Center, 1001 Boundary Street. Even with health insurance, the Senns will rack up tens of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses for their combined cancer treatments. However, a recipient benefits plan offered to through The Blood Alliance allows a donor to dedicate their donation account credits to Senn’s account. The plan will

reimburse 20% of the distribution cost incurred by The Blood Alliance for blood products shipped to the hospital for Senn’s use. “Acute lymphoblastic leukemia requires very aggressive treatment,” said Beaufort Memorial Medical Director of Laboratories Dr. Brad Collins, a pathologist specializing in blood diseases. “To kill all the cancerous cells in her bone marrow, they also have to kill all the normal cells.” Leukemia is just one of several blood disorders that require large amounts of blood for treatment. “These kinds of blood drives help create awareness of the need for donors,” said Karen Wyman, regional manager for The Blood Alliance, the sole supplier of blood and blood products for six hospitals from Mount Pleasant to Hilton Head Island. “The next donation is always the most important one because you don’t know what’s going to happen in the next two days that would create a need for blood.” Now recovering from the transplant, Senn is expected to remain in the hospital until later this week. Once she is discharged, she will need to stay within a 10-minute drive of MUSC for another 75 days to be able to survive any kind of medical crisis. “The support we have received from the community helps keep us moving forward,” Mark Senn said. “The doctors have given us a 35 to 50 percent chance for long-term remission. That’s a whole lot better than zero.”

From the farmers market to the Soft Shell Crab Fest By Lanier Laney

Earth Day fun at the Port Royal Farmers Market One of the few places you can see half the people you know on a consistent basis is at the Port Royal Farmers Market, which has just started its new summer hours from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Naval Heritage Park off Ribaut Road. The summer favorites are starting to roll in: strawberries, then blueberries, melons, and p e a c h e s . Also squash, peppers, okra and especially organic heirloom tomatoes! Yum. Lanier Laney Also the barbecue is great (and he also sells beer can chickens). And the Indian food is superb and can be purchased frozen “to go” to be rewarmed at home. You can find many more organic options this year in Kit Bruce’s continuing campaign to provide the most Earth friendly (and best tasting) food that the market can find. Also, the

LIMS Jr. Leadership class visits downtown Beaufort On Friday April 4, the Lady’s Island Middle School Jr. Leadership class spent a day visiting downtown Beaufort. During the day’s activities, the class learned about the city’s history and how the city of Beaufort is run. They began the day by meeting Ivette Burgess, the city clerk for Beaufort. Ms. Burgess introduced us to Mayor Keyserling who talked about all the departments and hard work that is needed to keep a city functioning each and every day. The discussion turned to what can students who would like to have their voice heard in city government do to participate in the process. Mayor Keyserling outlined a number of initiatives in which students can begin to help, such as, an advisory group made up of middle school students that report directly to the mayor. Later, the class visited the Beaufort

USCB to award honorary degrees to two educators Two former U.S. naval aviators who went on to distinguished careers in academe will be honored by the University of South Carolina Beaufort on Friday, May 2 at 6 p.m. when USCB conducts its 2014 Commencement exercises in the Helen and Brantley Harvey Plaza on the Hilton Head Gateway campus. Lawrence S. Rowland, Ph.D., will receive the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters. Arthur K. Smith, Ph.D., will receive the honorary degree of Doctor of Education. Both educators played prominent roles in the administration of USCB or the University of South Carolina. They will be honored during the Commencement ceremony. In addition, Dr. Smith will deliver the commencement address. After earning a bachelor’s degree in history, Dr. Rowland enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1964. He completed Officer Candidate School, was commissioned an officer, and then went on to flight school to train as a navigator. For several years, he carried out Cold War, long-range,

high-altitude photographic missions over Cuba and the Eastern European countries of the Soviet bloc. Dr. Rowland earned a Master of Arts degree at the University of South Carolina in 1971 and was appointed Assistant Director of USC-Beaufort, then an extension center of the University of South Carolina. For more than a decade, he served in the university’s administration, creating the financial aid program, recruiting minority students, directing the graduate teacher certification program, organizing classes for U.S. Marines stationed in Beaufort, and teaching three History courses. He also found time to earn a Ph.D. in History at USC in 1978. After leaving the administration in 1983, Dr. Rowland returned to his first love — teaching. He remained on the faculty until 1999, when he retired and was designated Distinguished Professor Emeritus. Dr. Rowland is the author of a threepart history of Beaufort County covering the period from 1514 to 2006.

Dr. Arthur K. Smith won an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical and marine engineering, in 1959. He served first as an officer on a U.S. Navy destroyer, then completed flight training to fly photographic surveillance missions over Russian ships entering and leaving Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Dr. Smith earned a Master of Arts degree in International Relations and Latin American Studies at the University of New Hampshire. He then entered Cornell University on a Herbert H. Leman Fellowship to pursue his doctorate. In 1970, he earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree specializing in International Politics and Law, Comparative Politics and Latin American Studies. Dr. Smith devoted the next 18 years of his academic career to the State University of New York-Binghamton. In 1988, he was named Provost and Executive Vice President at the University of South Carolina. He was appointed Interim President of the university in July 1990 and served in that capacity until March 1991. Over the course of his career, Dr. Smith has held the rank of full professor, with tenure, at four universities and president or interim president at three. Dr. Rowland and his wife live in Beaufort. Dr. Smith and his wife live on Hilton Head Island.

uscb pinning ceremony for nursing graduates The University of South Carolina Beaufort will conduct a pinning ceremony for graduates in the 2014 pre-licensure class of the Department of Nursing and Health Professions Thursday, May 1, at 3 p.m., at the Center for the Arts on the university’s Historic Beaufort Campus. This is the fourth pinning ceremony since the inception of the baccalaureate degree program for nursing students. Designed by graduates of the first BSN class in 2011, the nursing pin is an emblem worn on a nurse’s uniform to identify the nursing school from which he or she graduated. It also indicates the nurse’s level of education. The pin is presented to each BSN graduate by the faculty as a symbolic welcome to the profession. The pre-licensure track in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program provides a four-year course of study for BSN students. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the South Carolina Board of Nursing. It is tangible evidence of the university’s mission to “offer baccalaureate degrees that respond to regional needs, draw upon regional strengths, and prepare graduates to participate successfully in communities here and around the globe.”

An in-depth look at the people, businesses and organizations that shape our community

rick and deborah stone of the beaufort bread company

baking up goodness By Lanier Laney

Rick and Deborah Stone operate the Beaufort Bread Company where they oversee every aspect of the operation from the making of the breads, pastries, sausages and meals to the service and catering. Says Rick, “We pride ourselves on being a local neighborhood business for the benefit of our neighbors on Lady’s Island and Beaufort. Deborah runs a personal fitness training business as well. She proves that you can eat our breads and pastries and remain fit!” Rick, a native of Wilmette, Illinois, retired from a large global contract food service company three years ago. He says with a smile, “After six months, Deborah asked me if I was going to be home every day. I realized that was not simply a question. She was studying hard to get her certification as a personal physical fitness trainer and was used to me traveling. I had always loved baking in my career as a chef and saw a niche in Beaufort for an artisan bakery.” He said the idea took off from there. “We spent two years developing the concept. We began by selling breads at the Port Royal Farmers Market and developed a following. Next, we worked on the site. It was quite a ride and probably deserves a book on the topic of starting a small business in a difficult financial time. Once we truly recognized that banks would not be a part of the equation and we would have to leverage our children’s inheritance, everything began to fall in place. (Our children, by the way, are hoping for a huge success!),” Rick said. “We live on Lady’s Island and love it. Picking a site on the island was a nobrainer. Our first year has been full of ups and downs as we found our stride. We have evolved in ways we didn’t anticipate but have always kept our focus on the goal of being a successful local business.”

Rick adds, “We have been truly overwhelmed by the support of our community. We have a staff that we believe is the best in the area at providing a welcoming environment and taking care of each customer as if he or she were the only customer in the place” Deborah, who was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec (the child of English and American parents) met Rick at the Stowehoff Inn in Stowe, Vt. (It was the inn featured in the movie “The Four Seasons” with Alan Alda, if you are old enough to remember). Rick was a newly hired chef and Deborah was the assistant general manager in charge of catering when they fell in love and got married. Rick said, “We are happily celebrating our 25th anniversary next month thanks to her incredible patience and forgiving nature!” They adore their three grown children who live in Vermont; Boston, Mass.; and Ghana, Africa; with three delightful grandchildren in Vermont. Rick describes how he became a chef: “I started as a dishwasher while attending Georgetown University and moved up to an Omelette Chef, which was very trendy in the 70’s. I graduated with a Liberal Arts degree in Psychology and had learned to cook. It is easy to figure out which skill led to a job. As I worked my way though many kitchens in Chicago and Vermont, I realized this was my life’s work. When I finally won an American Culinary Federation Competition, I figured I better stick with this. “Over the years as a chef, the baking and pastries often fell to me because there was no one else to do the work. I enjoyed the challenge. I have trained in pastries at the Ritz-Carlton in Paris, taken courses at the CIA in Hyde Park, N.Y., and competed in American Culinary Federation Competitions.”

Rick and Deborah Stone are in their pajamas in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Christmas morning. Rick said, “We love to travel and our favorite place in the world is Paris where I simply let Deborah, who is fluent in French, do the talking and I just nod and follow along. My one attempt at ordering in French I ordered a battleship of wine rather than a bottle. I have been silent in that language ever since.”

When Deborah and Rick married, they knew they wanted to do something together. They looked for the “right” place to open a restaurant. Their search took them throughout New England and then, on a whim, to Hilton Head where they fell in love with the place and opened their first restaurant, Rick’s Place. Eventually, they expanded to operating not only the restaurant but all the food service in The Sea Pines Resort, including the catering at the Heritage Golf Tournament and Family Circle Tennis Cup. Says Rick, “Like so many people who have moved to Hilton Head, we were sure it was the guy who moved there right after us that ruined the character of the island. We had close friends who moved to Beaufort and insisted it was a place for us. After selling the restaurants and living in Mexico and Belize for a year we came back and eventually did settle in Beaufort. We love the size and the feel of the community. We have met so many interesting people since opening the bakery that our only regret is that we didn’t move here sooner.” Adds Deborah, “We love the spirit of Beaufort. It is a community of caring people and a terrific mix of people from all over the world.” She said, “We both love the outdoors and take advantage of all that Beaufort offers. Whether it be kayaking out our back door, hitting the links (and I use that term loosely), road biking or simply enjoying the amazing sunsets from our porch, cocktails in hand (I am sure that is a sport somewhere!), we take advantage of every spare moment to enjoy our amazing environment.” As far as their restaurant and bakery is concerned, Rick said, “We wanted to create a spot where people can come and

relax while enjoying quality food served by people who are grateful you have come to see us. We believe in creating a work environment that allows are employees to live ‘normal’ lives. It is why we are open five days and not at night. Our employees have families and many are single parents and we want them to have balance in their challenging lives. Kristen, Laura and Loretta are extremely talented individuals who put our guests first. We couldn’t ask for a better trio out front serving our goods. James, our chef; Brandy and Inna, our bakers; and Xavier and David, our dishwashers, all give 100 percent to make things happen.” Says Deborah, “Food is just another outlet for Rick’s creative endeavors. He is truly the quintessential Renaissance man. In fact, he personally made and designed the lighting fixtures, tables, countertops, and stained glass leading into the eclectic bathroom at the BBC.” Deborah is a skilled personal fitness trainer, and Rick jokingly calls her “Jackie Lalane” after the legendary Jack Lalane, the first fitness guru in the 50s. Says Rick with a laugh, “I would not be surprised to see her swimming in the Beaufort River, pulling a boat from a rope she is holding in her teeth.” Deborah fulfilled a lifelong dream when she received her certification as a personal fitness trainer. Having received a teaching degree from McGill University, she always wanted to help people feel better about themselves, both mentally and physically. She is now able to accomplish that with her training business. Her motto remains “70 is the new 40” as she pursues yet another degree in physical therapy. She is also an avid gardener, having been instrumental in initiating the very successful Rent a Master Gardener Program comprised of volunteer Master Gardeners. The Stones have enjoyed volunteering for the local arts council and Historic Beaufort Foundation, both great organizations that they feel are very important to the well-being of Beaufort. As for the future? Rick says, “We certainly expect to develop this business to be a fixture of the community. Retiring again for me would simply be sleeping past 3 a.m.! We hope some day our employees will own the business. They make a great team and it would be a fitting way for us to fade into the sunset.”

IF YOU GO The Beaufort Bread Company is located at 102 Sea Island Parkway, Beaufort, SC 29907 (near the bike shop on Lady’s Island) and is open Tuesday through Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call 843-522-0213.

Beaufort Symphony Orchestra presents ‘Amour Amour’ Bring your sweetheart to Beaufort Symphony Orchestra’s “Amour Amour” concert featuring baritone Roger Moss on Thursday, May 1 and Sunday, May 4. What a wonderful finale to Beaufort Symphony Orchestra’s 2013-2014 season! A concert filled to the brim with some of the most romantic music ever written, played to perfection by the orchestra, and some of the most beloved show tunes of our time masterfully interpreted by Savannah’s Roger Moss. Maestro Frederick Devyatkin has combined the musicians, the voice and the music to give us a night of truly remarkable entertainment that will make your heart beat a little faster and your hand hold a little tighter to the one you love. Roger Moss popular on Savannah music scene Roger Moss is a well-recognized member of Savannah’s jazz, blues and gospel music scene and his rich baritone voice has garnered many awards. He and Devyatkin agreed that a medley of beloved tunes from “Porgy and Bess” by

composers George and Ira Gershwin would be a lot of fun, but decided not to stop there. “As long as we were on a Gershwin kick, we didn’t want to Roger leave any of the great Moss classics out,” said Devyatkin. So they also added a few more great songs like, “Lady Be Good,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” and “Fascinating Rhythm,” all with new original arrangements written for Moss’ warm and easy delivery by the orchestra’s own Bill Baker. Moss will also perform “What I Did for Love” from “A Chorus Line,” and the theme song, “More” from the movie “Mondo Cane.” Says Moss, “Singing is like breathing to me and if it’s music that I love, I just go with it!” Orchestra’s selections fun, exciting and romantic Orchestral selections include one

upcoming orchestra 2014-2015 season To usher in the Beaufort Symphony Orchestra’s new 2014-2015 season, they’ll take a “Journey to Austria” on October 16 and 19, featuring the music of Mozart and Beethoven. The traditional “Holiday at the Pops” will welcome the holiday season on December 4 and 7, 2014. “Classically Romantic” on February 26 and March 1, 2015 will feature Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky, and our fourth and final concert will feature music from ballet to Broadway in “Let’s Dance” on May 7 and 10, 2015.

of the single most appealing tunes in operatic history: the Intermezzo from Pietro Mascagni’s “Cavalleria Rusticana,” composed in 1888. This orchestral interlude of intensely dramatic music was inserted in the opera to denote the passage of time and became an instant hit. And the romance to end all romances, Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,”

served as the inspiration for Peter Tchaikovsky’s 1880 symphonic poem, “Romeo and Juliet Overture – Fantasia.” Something added “just for fun” is the “Thunder and Lightning Polka” composed in 1868 by Johann Strauss. With its appropriate effects from timpani rolls, cymbal crashes and drums, Strauss clearly sought to amuse as much as compose a successful piece of music. Rounding out the orchestral selections will be music from the blockbuster movie, “Titanic” and the stage and screen classic, “My Fair Lady.” All tickets are $37.50, reserved seating for both Thursday night, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 4, at 3 p.m. Go to for a seating chart and to order online, or call 1-800-595-4849. Tickets are also available at the door one hour prior to curtain at USCB Center for the Arts at 801 Carteret St., Beaufort. This concert is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

A preview of Mozart’s comic gem ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ By Alan Schuster

In his own words — not his notes! — Mozart responded to a letter from a friend who asked him how he found inspiration to compose such great works.“When I am, as it were, completely by myself,” he wrote, “it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how they come, I know not; nor can I force them. Those ideas that please me I retain in memory. If I continue this way, it soon occurs to me how I may turn this or that morsel to account. All this fires my soul ... and stands almost complete and finished in my mind, so that I can survey it like a picture or a beautiful statue ... and I can hear them all at once.” And in “Cosi Fan Tutte”, Mozart uses total recall to download about 35 arias, duets, trios, etc., most of which come and go in less than three minutes. Act I, Naples: Two army officers, Guglielmo and Ferrando, are in love with two sisters, Fiordiligi and Dorabella, and are convinced that they reciprocate their passion. Alfonso, an older friend, wagers that the girls would betray them if given a chance. They accept the bet, giving Alfonso 24 hours to prove his point. Alfonso visits the sisters, telling them that the men must leave immediately for military duty. The couples say their sad farewells, much to the amusement of Alfonso. Despina, the

sisters maid, is recruited by Alfonso to tell the girls that two Albanian gentlemen wish to meet them. They hesitantly agree and Guglielmo and Ferrando now arrive in disguise. Feigning deep love, the men are rebuffed and pretend to take poison. Despina, now disguised as a doctor, rushes in to save them. Act II: The “foreigners” continue their efforts by courting each other’s girlfriend. Fiordiligi admits that her pursuer has touched her heart while Dorabella exchanges lockets with the other pretender. Uncertain they’ve done enough to win the bet, the men demand that marriage contracts be written. Enter Despina, this time as a lawyer. Contracts are drawn and a banquet is to be prepared. Now Alfonso tells the girls that their heroes have returned, hence another quick change as the men — Tweedledum and Tweedledee — pretend to learn that the girls are to marry two strangers. This only creates more confusion, and when Alfonso presents the marriage contracts as final proof, the women realize they’ve been duped and the men have lost their bets. Since all comic operas must have a happy ending, all is forgiven in a rousing finish. The Music: After a bright overture, the opera begins with a tuneful duet by the young officers who brag about their faithful fiancees, leading them to accept

Alfonso’s wager. In the next scene, the sisters express similar lovesick feelings, only this time with more tenderness and close harmony. The plot is now set in motion when Alfonso brings them together in a stretch of almost 20 minutes of uninterrupted Mozartian magic, starting with the famous “Sento, o Dio” quintet (Courage fails me...), the first of several outstanding ensembles. The couples exchange farewells as the men prepare to depart. Once aboard their ship, the sisters and Alfonso launch into a beautiful trio,“Soave sia il vento” (May soft breezes blow), in which they pray that the men will travel safely by gentle breezes and calm seas. The final scene is another brilliant ensemble in which the officers return in disguise, vainly attempting to test the sisters’ faithfulness, calling out “Dammi un bacio”(Give me a kiss). It’s a breathless finish, not only for the performers but for audiences as well.

In Act Two, after the girls agree to a little flirtation with their “guests,” the first ‘odd couple’ — Guglielmo and Dorabella — join in one of the most tender pieces of love music that Mozart ever wrote, “Il core vi dono” (I give you my heart). Fiordiligi’s second superb aria, “Per pieta” (Please forgive me) is a showcase piece with wideranging runs and an exciting climax. Why, one wonders, did Mozart give the two best arias to the same soprano? Maybe it was because she was the mistress of the librettist, Lorenzo da Ponte. The big finale consists of several sections which don’t connect very well, but simply follow one another, i.e. just a few more great tunes plucked from Mozart’s memory bank. There’s a military chorus hailing the couples; a famous Toast Quartet which one reviewer recently called “dreamy”; Alfonso’s victory lap; an inspired Forgiveness Quartet; and an ending with an up-tempo sextet about accepting life’s good times and bad. Back then, critics considered the plot to be a “shocking and licentious work, trivial and artificial, preposterous situations, ridiculous intrigues, outlandish disguises,” just to name a few. As for the music: “All the music is good, and when it is very good, it is perfect.” Cast: Fiordiligi, Susanna Phillips; Dorabella, Isabel Leonard; Ferrando, Matthew Polenzani; Guglielmo, Rodion Pogossov; Alfonso, Maurizio Muraro; Despina, Danielle de Niese. “Cosi Fan Tutte” will be at USCB Center for the Arts on Saturday, April 26, at 12:55 p.m. Tickets: Adults $22; OLLI members $18; Students under 18, $15.

the indie film corner: ‘the unknown known’ The Indie Film documentary “The Unknown Known” will be shown at USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret St., on Monday, April 28 at 7 p.m. In “ The Unknown Known,” Academy Awardwinning director Errol Morris (“The Fog of War”) offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War, and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public.

Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his “snowflakes,” tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense. These memos provide a window onto history — not history as it actually happened, but history as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Morris makes plain

that Rumsfeld’s “snowflakes” — whether intended to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate, or control history — are contradicted by the facts. “ The Unknown Known” is an illumination of the mystery of Donald Rumsfeld, an unknown known. Tickets are adults $7, seniors $6, and students $7. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145 or email Bonnie Hargrove at, or visit them online at

Edelman to speak at Tabernacle Baptist Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund, will speak at the Tabernacle Baptist Church on Sunday, April 27, 2014 at 9 a.m. The event titled “A Family Affair: It Takes a Village” is a part of the Tabernacle Baptist Church’s 150th Anniversary Celebration. Marian Wright Edelman was inducted into the South Carolina Hall of Fame for her outstanding contributions to the state’s heritage and progress on February 24. She will be inducted into the Penn Center 1862 Circle on Saturday, April 26. The South Carolina General Assembly passed a Concurrent Resolution on April 8 honoring Mrs. Edelman on “Her lifetime of serving as an ambassador for disadvantage Americans and to congratulate her on being inducted into the South Carolina Hall of Fame.” State Representative Kenneth Hodges,

who pastors the Tabernacle Baptist Church and previously pastored Mrs. Edelman’s home church in Bennettsville, says, “We are honored to Marian Wright have Marian Wright Edelman Edelman to address the Tabernacle Family and the Beaufort Community as we focus with renewed interest on the family. Mrs. Edelman will challenge us to reweave the fabric of family and community in order to change the odds for all children guaranteeing them the hope for a future.” “I have always felt blessed to be born who I was, where I was, when I was, and with the parents I had. Growing up in Bennettsville, I was richly blessed with parents and a black community who

nurtured me and other children so that we would realize our God-given potential despite many negative messages of the outside segregated world. We were taught that the world had a lot of problems but that we could change them and that those of us who were given much had a responsibility to give back and that service is the rent we pay for living. What keeps me going everyday is my belief that we can and will win the fight to make America live up to its ideals in the Declaration of Independence and realize the dream of a level playing field for all,” said Edelman. She has received over a hundred honorary degrees and many awards including a MacArthur Foundation Prize Fellowship and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award. Tabernacle Baptist Church is located at 911 Craven Street in Beaufort, S.C.

‘A Southern Girl’ by John Warley selected by Pat Conroy John Warley’s exciting new novel “A Southern Girl” is the inaugural publication of Story River Books, a South Carolinabased original fiction imprint with editorat-large Pat Conroy and published by the University of South Carolina Press. “A Southern Girl,” which comes out in May, unites a 1970’s American family with an orphaned infant from Seoul, Korea, after the main character Coleman’s liberal-thinking and compassionate wife Elizabeth convinces her husband to adopt Soo Yun (later Allie) in spite of Coleman’s reservations that stem largely from his

deeply-steeped Southern elitist values. With settings shifting seamlessly among the diverse cultures of Vietnam, Korea, Virginia, and Charleston, South Carolina, and the varying points of view ranging from Soo Yun’s birthmother, her orphanage nurse, Elizabeth, and Coleman, “A Southern Girl, both in form and subject, embraces the powerful themes of acceptance and inclusion.” Allie’s immersion into American life in “A Southern Girl,” while filled with trials, proves cultural obstacles can be overcome and differences can open our eyes more

clearly to our human commonalities. “While no one denies a perfect solution would be for orphans to stay in their native country, the truth is the shortage of loving, nurturing families to adopt in native countries puts these children at a far greater risk that growing up in a different culture,” John says. The author will be signing books on Saturday, May 10, at Beaufort Bookstore in Beaufort Town Center from 1 to 3 p.m., and on Sunday, May 11 he will be at McIntosh Book Shoppe, located on Bay Street, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Author Cassandra King visits Beaufort High to talk with students

Cassandra King, bestselling author and local resident, visited Beaufort High School recently to talk to students in Corrie Zimmerman’s Creative Writing class. Ms. Zimmerman, a lifelong fan of Ms. King’s work and head of the BHS English Department, invited the author to discuss the creative process, her writing career, and the book publishing progression. Students were full of their own questions for this engaging writer.

Cassandra King will now be joining in one of the signings with author John Warley for her newest publication “Same Sweet Girls’ Guide to Life” on Sunday, May 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. at McIntosh Books on Bay Street in downtown Beaufort. Based on a commencement address she delivered to her alma mater, The University of Montevallo (formerly Alabama College), Cassandra‘s instructions for life become especially affecting through her satirical turn on the word “sweet” throughout the book. A “sweet” and worldly beauty queen’s talk at convocation when Cassandra was a student helped her discover the difference between a “Southern Belle” and the true meaning of “sweet.” She and others (the fictionalized friends in her novel Same Sweet Girls) were empowered that day to rebel against the superficiality of “sweet” and frame life in a different way. Thus, the book follows with seven simple yet profound guides for living an authentic and generous life. This genuinely “sweet” book is a gem of wisdom and a gift for people young or old.

Where Nerdy Chicks Rule: The Whimsical World of Kami Kinard “Middle graders are awesome! They haven’t yet lost that joie de vivre, so they still embrace the cute, fun, and funky! Especially girls”, says Kami Kinard, author of several young adult novels including the latest, “The Boy Problem (Notes and Predictions of Tabitha Reddy)” whose release by Scholastic Press on April 29 is going to be celebrated at ARTworks in Beaufort with a book signing and launch party. After growing up in Camden, SC, Ms. Kinard has lived in several different parts of the state before settling in Beaufort with her husband and a teenaged son and daughter who provide real life inspiration for the characters in her books. “My daughter was in seventh grade at the time [I was writing “The Boy Problem”] and I decided to deliberately populate my novel with things she found appealing. What better way to connect with readers of the same age?” And connect with her target audience she has, having penned her debut novel

“The Boy Project” in 2012, which was declared one of the “8 Books We Wanna Read in 2012” by Girl’s Life online and praised by Publisher’s Weekly in Kami Kinard a review which said among other things that, “Kinard creates a highly credible middle-school universe of popular girls, dorky boys, unpredictable teachers, and volatile loyalties; she hits all the right notes.” In the author’s newest book, “The Boy Problem (Notes and Predictions of Tabitha Reddy),” a different middle school aged narrator who “believes in signs. Like fortune cookies. Magic 8-Balls. Shooting stars” tries to predict who her perfect boyfriend will be. (Undoubtedly, an all-consuming and angst ridden activity for the teen and tween set.) Needless to say, hilarity ensues, friendship is proved invaluable

and important life lessons are learned along the way. A busy working mom, though, Ms. Kinard doesn’t stop with the role of author. She also writes a for blog entitled “Nerdy Chicks Rule” (www.NerdyChicksRule. com), which describes a “Nerdy Chick” as a “smart girl who flaunts brain power and flouts social norms.” Although more adult focused than her novels, the blog, which she runs with her friend and fellow children’s author Sudipta BardhanQuallen, is a comfort food amidst the overloaded buffet of social media. This is no “mystery meat”, but more a cream pie or a banana pudding, with posts about topics ranging from “Confessions of a Chronic Doodler” to “Savvy, Inspiring, Quotes from Smart Women.” So what can’t this dynamo do? According to Ms. Kinard: Art. “I have just enough talent to be frustrated by what I can envision, but can’t do.” But she goes on to say, “I love creativity. It doesn’t matter whether words, colors, shapes, or flavors are put together in an unusual way, I love

the creation of new ideas.” Because of this, she and her daughter frequently collaborate on crafts projects which are featured on their blog: Crafty Crafts (http://craftycrafts.wordpress. com) which specializes in step by step instructions for crafts projects that kids can do. Welcome to the whimsical world of Kami Kinard, where every day brings a new creative venture, boys are a “project” or “problem” on the scale of finding the perfect pair of earrings to go with an outfit, friendships among girls are forever, and mothers and teenage daughters actually host a blog together.

ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH There is absolutely no motion you can make with your wrist with a manual toothbrush that is going to be better than the circular motion of a rotary toothbrush. Secondly, the small head of the rotary brush gets into tighter places than the larger head of the manual brush. Thirdly, the average person brushes for 37 seconds. The rotary brush has a timer and if one brushes the lower teeth for a minute and the uppers for a minute, I will assure you it will be much more thorough. the island news | april 24-30, 2014 |

By Pamela Brownstein


The building that once belonged to Misu is now home to Yama Japanese Restaurant. Though little had changed to the outside and inside of the restaurant, the new menu features sushi, hibachi and a variety of Japanese dishes. The Lunch Bunch is always excited to try a new restaurant, and the five us sat lined up around the always entertaining hibachi grill fired up in full force. For starters we shared the Shumai (shrimp dumplings) and Gyoza (pork and vegetable dumplings) with gyoza sauce, both excellent, as well as the Shrimp Tempura appetizer. Next we moved onto the sushi round Clockwise from above: Sushi and sashimi combo for two; Tropical roll; Shumai: shrimp where we were treated to some awesome dumplings with gyoza sauce; Chef fires up the hibachi grill; Saucy shrimp and crawfish roll. rolls.

Zork and Mindy?

A look at five new wines from the Leese-Fitch label based in Sonoma, California

By Celia Strong

You might be wondering: What does the headline “Zork and Mindy” — a take off on the old Robin Williams sitcom “Mork and Mindy” — have to do with this week’s wine? Well, we can only reveal the answer after learning about the history of the winery and the winemaking methods behind our featured wine of the week. In fact, just so you know it will all be worthwhile, it’s wines, plural, this week. Yay! Our quest to learn more about our wine takes us to California, again, to a Sonoma-based winery. And with it we get to look at two very old California wine families. First, the Vallejos. You might remember, from previous explorations of Sonoma County, how grape growing and winemaking spread up into California from Mexico. It came with Spanish missionaries as they expanded from Mexico. Highway 101, which runs south to north (and back down again) through California is also known as the Camino Rea. This was the highway they created, the original route used by the Missionaries and the soldiers who protected them. General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo was the Spanish commander of these troops. Vallejo was born in July, 1807, in Monterey, California, then a Spanish holding. With family connections, he grew up with some advantages. He was serving as the personal secretary to the Governor of California when Mexico became independent from Spain. Vallejo became a cadet at the Presidio of Monterey. In 1833, he became the Commander of the Presidio of San Francisco and was charged with overseeing the secularization of Mission San Francisco Solano and founded the town of Sonoma. In 1835, he was appointed Comandante of the Fourth Military District Nd Director of Colonization of the Northern Frontier. This was the highest military command in Northern California. Vallejo built the Presidio of Sonoma, and moved most of the soldiers from San Francisco there to counter the Russians at Fort Ross. (Remember our

looks at the Russian River Valley in Sonoma?) On the town plaza in Sonoma, Vallejo built a two-story adobe house for himself. In the years that followed, although not all smooth, Vallejo moved family members to his new town. Sisters, two in particular, whose husbands also built an adobe on the Sonoma plaza. This second adobe has now become the home, and namesake for our wines of the week. Jacob Leese and Henry Fitch were two brothers-in-law to Vallejo and built their adobe in 1836. Leese-Fitch is the winery based out of this piece of history. The proprietors of Leese-Fitch trace their roots to another old wine family in California. Recognize the name Sebastiani? The Sebastianis are called the First Family of Sonoma wine. Samuele Sebastiani built a winery in Sonoma Town in 1904. He had a 500 gallon tank he had brought from Tuscany, Italy. August Sebastiani, Samuele’s son, continued with the winery and is considered to be the first famous California winemaker. He managed the winery for decades, with a great flair for promotion, and took production to 500,000 cases a year. He also introduced liter-and-a-half bottles in 1975. When August died, in 1904, his wife Sylvia and their children took over. The children were Sam, Don and Mary Ann, and Mary Ann’s husband, Dick Cuneo. At one point, Sylvia fired Sam for overspending and replaced him with Don. This brings us to the makers of our wine this week — two of Don Sebastiani’s children, Auguste and Mia. A fourth generation, setting up a company called The Other Guys (TOG), moved into

the Leese-Fitch adobe in Sonoma and named their wines for that building. And, we have five of their wines to look at this week. Leese-Fitch Chardonnay is the one white wine we have. It is full of citrus aromas, like Meyer lemons and lime zest, with crisp apple acidity and apple and lemongrass flavors. There are small amounts of Chenin Blanc, for minerality and crispness, and Viognier, also for acidity and floral notes, added in. The total wine is really pleasant, easy sipping, and well matched for salads, cold suppers, seafood, shellfish, garlic sauces and more. Leese-Fitch Cabernet Sauvignon is the first, alphabetically, of several reds from this company. Small amounts of Syrah, Tempranillo, and other grapes add depth and complexity. We get hazelnuts, espresso, cherry and black currant aromas and a long list of flavors that includes more cherries, cocoa, tea leaves, blackberries, caramel and toasted coconut. A truly delicious Cabernet that’s good with red meats, sandwiches, lamb and barbecue. Yum! Leese-Fitch Pinot Noir is almost all Pinot. A mere one percent Merlot is added. Strawberries and violets and plums and baking spices smell wonderful and lead to even more flavors that include raspberries, cocoa powder, black cherries and toffee. This wine has enough tannins to go with meals like lamb burgers but it is also smooth enough for roast chicken, spinach fettuccine, goat cheese, and mushrooms. Yum, yum. Leese-Fitch Merlot is all Merlot. A deep garnet color, it has aromas of

The fourth generation from the Sebastiani wine making family, TOG named their wines after the 1836 building they moved into, the Leese-Fitch adobe located on the plaza in Sonoma. blueberries, boysenberries, clove and cocoa — a very near perfect Merlot. And the flavors are the same as these aromas along with many more including baking spices such as vanilla, cardamom and mocha, cherries and plums — all rich and lush in your mouth because of the juicy texture of this wine. Pork dishes are great with this Merlot, grilled poultry and seafood too, as well as barbecue, pizza — pretty much most food. Leese-Fitch Zinfandel comes last, only alphabetically though. This Zin has some Petit Sirah blended into it, for added body. Deeply colored, this wine swells out of your glass with black, red and blue fruit aromas, spices, pepper, cedar and more. Using Zinfandel grapes from both Lodi and Paso Robles gives this wine intense fruit flavors and good structure. The best of two worlds, or sources, I guess. It goes well with pizzas, grilled everything, lamb and spicy foods. And, there we are. Five new wines in one week. But what is the meaning behind the “Zork and Mindy” headline? That’s easy, once you buy one of these bottles and open it. They all have a relatively new type of closer, more like a stopper really. You peel off the spiral cut seal and the stopper is the top of it, and it pops in and out of the bottle. Open and close, as you need. And the name of this new stopper is called Zork. Now, we can taste any and all of these wines for only $9.99 each. Enjoy.

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol or adopt a furry friend

Dog gone AWOL By Tracie Korol

It’s one of the worst feelings in the world. You return from work, walk into the yard expecting the familiar jingle of Fracas’ dog tags. But the sound never comes. You run to check the garage, the backyard, and the neighbor’s yard — nothing. Your dog is gone! It can happen to the most diligent pet owner, but with some foresight you can close most of the loopholes through which Fracas may slip away. Why do dogs leave home? Hands down the primary reason dogs leave home is a combination of loneliness and boredom. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of “The Hidden Life of Dogs” maintains that the one thing a dog most wants is ... other dogs. A dog’s human family can substitute for a canine pack but only up to a point. Today, “pack members” are gone during the day and often at night, at work or school, and it’s hard for dogs to accept long separations from leadership and affection. They begin to look beyond the boundaries of home for stimulation and companionship. Also, add in that dogs are hunters and scavengers. Given the opportunity, they will gratefully leave their over-investigated backyards. Roaming is an innate canine behavior. If a dog is not neutered or spayed, the call of romance will win over confinement every time. A female in

Dogs that might otherwise have been content to lounge around the house suddenly pull off Steve McQueen maneuvers just to heed the call of the randy. Severe weather conditions can cause the most well adjusted dog to panic and flee his yard in fear for his own safety. I have known dogs that have broken through windows to escape the noise and attendant sensory input of a thunderstorm. Noise from construction equipment, fireworks or gunshots can have much the same effect. Certain dogs are so motion — or activity — stimulated that they become

the island news | april 24-30, 2014 |

“door crashers.” The slightest opening in a gate or door creates a golden opportunity to take off after that real or imaginary prey. If there happens to be a real-live squirrel or even another dog in his line of sight, the escape and ensuing chase becomes a self-perpetuating behavior because of the immediate reward. Some dog losses are “assisted”. The most notorious examples are the meter reader/utility worker/gardener/pool

maintenance-related escapes. The people who enter your property on a routine basis aren’t always careful about closing doors, latching gates and, admittedly, most are not that wild about dealing with strange dogs. Unlocked gates pose a big temptation for neighbor children to “let the puppy out to play”. Their parents, however, may not have such high regard for your pet. If your dog howls or barks all day while you are at work that testy neighbor may relieve the shared agony by subtly easing your gate open just enough to facilitate an escape. Not all dogs escape from home. Dogs lost from the backs of trucks, campers or from inside cars are becoming increasingly more common. To give our dogs companionship, we take them with us! The problem is that our dogs are not happy in the car unless we’re sitting with them. Because of higher public exposure, a dog is at greater risk of an “assisted” escape left alone in a vehicle that it is at home. Determining the reason why and how your dog escapes will point to how to remedy the problem. Next week: What you can do to prevent your dog from leaving.
