County citizens can now be part of South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association In response to the increasing number of people wanting to assist law enforcement officials in building a stronger partnership in the fight against crime, Sheriff PJ Tanner is pleased to announce that Beaufort County citizens are being invited to become Honorary Members of the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association. Membership appeals are being issued this month. Individuals choosing to join the voluntary program can do so for as little as $25, while businesses can show their support for a $50 contribution. The funding provides critically important technical resources, training and legislative support on key criminal justice issues. Contributions are tax deductible. “With government funding becoming increasingly difficult to secure, the membership drive has taken on greater importance than

ever before, said Sheriff Tanner. “The funding is vital to helping the Association carry out our mission of making our communities safer places to live, work and play.” The South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association provides aggressive advocacy using the strong unified voice of our 46 Sheriffs. The Association is a key player in shaping state policy on public safety and crime prevention, as well as providing critical training to Sheriffs’ teams and education to member citizen/businesses. Individuals that do not receive a membership appeal and would like more information can do so by contacting the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association at: 112 Westpark Blvd., Columbia, SC 29210.

letter to the editor Take part in Parkinson’s Awareness Month

This April, I urge the folks in the Lowcountry to take part in Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Nearly one million Americans live with Parkinson’s Disease and many of them, including my father, are living right here in Beaufort. There is currently no cure. I am 56 years old and now part of what is being coined the “sandwich generation” though I’m not sure if I’m a club sandwich or opened faced! I have a 90-year-old father whose greatest wish is to be able to walk on his own from his bed to his easy chair. I have learned a lot from my father’s fight with this debilitating neurological disease. While most people recognize Parkinson’s Disease from the most visible symptom being tremors, I know too well that there are other symptoms, some devastatingly frightening and sad, which are not easily visible. I have become involved in the Beaufort and Port Royal Parkinson’s support group. This group has helped me to better understand and deal with my dad’s disease and as a result improve his quality of life! I am proud to note that both the City of Beaufort and the City of Port Royal have joined the group in declaring by proclamation that April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Let’s make a difference this April during Parkinson’s Awareness Month! I invite those affected by Parkinson’s disease, including family and caregivers, to attend the support group meetings held on the first Thursday of every month at Shell Point Baptist Church. For information on the group, please call (843) 525-1229 or (843) 252-3001. If you know someone with Parkinson’s Disease, please consider making a donation to one of several Parkinson’s foundations or advocacy groups. Rick Ostrander, Parkinson’s Disease Support Group of Beaufort & Port Royal

Keep your peepers safe this spring You wouldn’t know it by our temperatures lately, but technically it is spring: typically warmer weather, longer days filled with outdoor sports and recreational activities like baseball, basketball, tennis, and fishing. Unfortunately, spring ushers in tens of thousands of sports and recreationrelated eye injuries each year. The good news is that 90 percent of serious eye injuries are preventable through use of appropriate protective eyewear. The risk of eye injury can vary depending on the activity. Make sure the level of eye protection you or others in your family use is appropriate for the type of activity. Regular eyeglasses do not offer proper eye protection. High-Risk Sports For all age groups, sports-related eye injuries occur most frequently in baseball, basketball and racquet sports. Boxing and full-contact martial arts pose an extremely high risk of serious and even blinding eye injuries. There is no satisfactory eye protection for boxing, although thumbless gloves may reduce the number of boxing eye injuries. In baseball, ice hockey and men’s lacrosse, a helmet with a polycarbonate (an especially strong, shatterproof, lightweight plastic) face mask or wire shield should be worn at all times. Protective eyewear with polycarbonate lenses should be worn for sports such as basketball, racquet sports, soccer and field hockey. Choose eye protectors that have been tested to meet the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards or that pass the CSA racquet sports standard. If you already have reduced vision in one

eye, consider the risks of injuring the stronger eye before participating in contact or racquet sports, which pose a higher risk of eye injury. Check with your ophthalmologist to see if appropriate eye protection is available and whether or not participating in contact or racquet sports is advised. Other Risky Leisure Activities While sports account for a particularly high number of eye injuries, they are by no means the only hobby that poses a risk to your sight. According to physicians surveyed for the 2008 Eye Injury Snapshot conducted by the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Ocular Trauma, more than 40 percent of patients treated for eye injuries sustained at home were involved in home repairs, yard work, cleaning and cooking. Use common sense and err on the side of caution, whatever the activity. • Consider the risk of flying debris or other objects during activities and wear appropriate eye protection. • Remember that eyeglasses aren’t sufficient protection. • Be careful during activities or games involving projectiles and other sharp objects that could create injury if in contact with the eye. For example, the U.S. Eye Injury Registry indicates that fishing is the number one cause of sportsrelated eye injuries. • If you wear contacts or eyeglasses, pack a back-up form of vision correction during bike trips or other activities where you could lose or shatter a lens. If an eye injury occurs, see an ophthalmologist or go to the emergency room immediately, even if the eye injury appears minor. Delaying medical attention can result in permanent vision loss or blindness.

Board Chairman Bill Evans said that Moss will make periodic trips to the district over the next few months to begin familiarizing himself with his new position and to provide input as the Board develops the district’s FY 2013-14 budget. “The board believes that Dr. Moss is an excellent choice, and we’re looking forward to working with him,” Evans said. “He has a track record of success in his two previous superintendent’s positions, and during our research we heard again and again about his ability to manage staff and resources so that students have the best possible chance of

success.” Ray and Associates, an Iowa-based firm hired by the board to coordinate the national search, received 122 applications from candidates in 42 states. The consultants brought 11 candidates to the board, which interviewed seven before announcing three finalists.

Holy Trinity students studied the artistic medium of sculpture. After shaping faces with modeling clay, students painted their unique creations. No two faces were the same. Pictured here with their unique sculptures, left to right, are: Maley Baisch, Rostan Baisch, Amara Phillips, Reagan Wyatt and Corabet Miller.

Third grader Samuel Siler recently graduated from the The Young Marines Boot Camp program. The Young Marines is a youth education and service program for boys and girls that promotes the mental, moral, and physical development of its members.

After reading the book “Roxaboxen”, Holy Trinity kindergartners participated in an outdoor activity where they made their own town out of sticks and stones. This story is about a small group of children in a desert town. They live across the street from an empty field, littered with cactus and dried flowers and stones. They call this place Roxaboxen, and imagine it is a real town.

As part of a year-long project in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources, the Beaufort Academy eighth grade physical science class took a field trip to test for pH, salinity, dissolved oxygen, temperature and turbidity. Pictured above is William Lindsay, Jackson Warren, Avery May and Mary Keane.

TCL gets $50,000 grant to fund simulation manikin The Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation Inc. has been awarded a $50,000 Community Investment Grant from the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry to support the purchase of a high fidelity simulator for health sciences programs. TCL Area Commission Chair Gen. Arthur E. Brown Jr., Foundation Vice Chair Sarah Reed, and Nursing Instructor Stephanie Lawson attended the recent awards ceremony. “We are so grateful for this generous support from the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry,” TCL Foundation Executive Director Louise Mathews said. “These funds will directly benefit our students and enhance their learning experience while at TCL.” The high-fidelity simulator can be programmed to simulate cardiac and pulmonary incidents, disease symptoms, and even patient responses to pain. “‘Sim-Man’ can mimic many situations that nurses and other health care professionals will encounter in the workplace,” dean of health sciences Marge Sapp said. “This simulator can do and say just about anything a human body can.” Because of these life-like simulations, the Sim-Man will help students learn using real-life scenarios.

in raising funds for new health sciences equipment, but funds are still needed to complete the purchase the Sim-Man that costs about $85,000. Through the CODE TCL campaign, the TCL Foundation seeks to raise $400,000 over four years for health sciences equipment, Mathews said. “New technologies evolve each year and in order for our graduates to receive the relevant educational experience necessary for today’s healthcare facilities, TCL must remain on the cutting-edge,” Mathews said. TCL has graduated about 500 health care professionals in nursing, radiological technology, surgical technology, physical therapist assistant and massage therapy programs in the last five years. “Our graduates touch the lives of Lowcountry residents every day by providing the quality health care that our region desires and expects,” President Dr. Tom Leitzel said. “TCL is a major economic driver in our healthcare community – we provide the workforce (A PG rated, tame, and boring love our story) needed to sustain communities’ TCL Nursing Instructor Stephanie Lawson (left) and TCL Foundation Vice Chair healthcare.” Sarah Reed accept a $50,000 check from the Community Foundation of Lowcountry.

Takiya Smith aims to inspire others through her memoir

‘Never Forsaken’ By Anne Christnovich

seriously considered it. “I didn’t even know it was going to be a book,” she said. “I was doing it for therapeutic reasons.” About halfway through journaling, however, Smith said she realized her story could help others. She said she saw the book take shape and decided to publish the finished product. “It was for more than just myself,” she said. “I realized I was being used for God’s purpose.” At the end of each chapter, Smith included a writing prompt and a few blank pages for readers to do their own journaling. “My journal became a vehicle of release,” she said. “I hope this will help women — and men — face and overcome obstacles.” In many ways, the book is intended for a

purpose similar to her beauty boutique: to help uplift self-esteem and give people the tools to think better of themselves. “I wrote it so people realize they can change,” she said. A portion of the book details an abusive relationship she was in which caused her to fear for her life. “I woke up every day thinking ‘This is the day I’m going to die,’  ” she said. Smith ended up taking her two children — now ages 15 and 9 — and fleeing the relationship in 2007. For a short time, they were homeless. The experience has caused her to want to reach out to other women, some of whom are clients with various trials. “I have laughed, cried, embraced, and prayed with many of my clients, some of whom have become close friends, ranging in age from their mid-20s to late 60s,” her book says. “Hurt and pain know no age, and sorrow has no boundaries. Abuse and neglect are colorblind, yet as women, we are beautifully and intricately a gender created in God, by God and for God.” For the future, she wants to turn her lash and brow business into a franchise, aimed at helping struggling single moms to start their own business. It could empower them, Smith said, and will help her continue her ministry through God. She also wants to start motivational speaking and has even started writing a sequel. She plans to call it “Forever Forgiven.” It will focus on how her acceptance of Jesus helped her to eventually forgive the people who hurt her. While the first book explained the events in her life, she said she wants the next to explain the forgiveness process. “If you can get to the place ... to know it was all to make you stronger. It was to enable you to help others,” she said. “It doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process. It takes time.” “Never Forsaken” can be purchased for $14.99 online at www.Takiya-LaShaune.com. Smith will hold a book signing Monday, April 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beautique Lash & Brow, at 2201 Boundary St., Suite 203 in Carolina Cove (located in the white building behind the Enmark gas station). More information and preorders are available on the website.

ocal entrepreneur Takiya Smith knows her calling in life is to bring inner beauty out of others. Her confidence in her purpose, however, results from plenty of struggle. A series of abuse and neglect ironically caused Smith to believe throughout her teens and 20s that she was ugly and incapable of success. At age 36, she currently runs Beautique Lash & Brow of Beaufort, where she gives customers long, luscious, semi-permanent eyelashes, does eyebrow shaping using a method called “threading” and generally helps people feel more beautiful. Smith smiles often, laughs quickly and has the knack for conversation that allows those she meets to immediately feel like a friend. She is bursting with ambition and gives one the true sense of an “on-the-go” person. Her warmth and bubbly demeanor don’t show a trace of her greyer days but Smith has chosen to detail the harder times in her life in a recently published book, titled “Never Forsaken,” The book, which was adapted from her personal journals, chronicles how sexual abuse from her stepfather when she was a pre-teen and teen led her into abusive relationships later in life. For a long time, Smith said, she was in “downward spiral” with little hope of recovery. “I wouldn’t say I was a bad person but I would say I was an angry, hurt person,” she said. She began writing the journals in January 2009 after a bishop at a friend’s church pulled her up to the altar and spoke of her past — things Smith said she’d never told anyone but God. “Bishop Frank spoke of how God had delivered me and kept me from my enemies and said that the trials of my past were all for God’s plan for my life in Christ,” her book says. He told her to start writing in a journal to begin fulfilling her purpose. Though many people before the Bishop suggested that she write a book, she never

Takiya La’Shaune’s story is one many readers can relate to, especially women who’ve struggled with their personal histories and the choices they’ve made as a result of those early lessons. Her memoir offers positive affirmation of the beauty and strength each of us possess, and a testament to faith that makes clear that even the most difficult journey need never be taken alone.

wine

Older is a good thing By Celia Strong

Finally! Yes, with all the old age jokes that some of us live with, older can be better. For people, it means we could be smarter and better looking. For wine, it means new, and better in their own way, flavors and textures. Of course, some of us almost never have the time or the inclination to age our wines. And, even if we did at one point in our lives, as we get older it gets less likely that we want to buy wines that we have to age. Who knows if they’ll be ready to drink before we can get to them. And, then some doctor puts us on a prescription that doesn’t work with alcohol. Ugh! So, even though some aged wines may be better, we are not always able to go down that road. But, we are now started on a road, talking about aging wines. When you think about it, wine is one of the only consumable products that can get better with age. (Well, some wines.) The ability of any one wine to age is based on a lot of factors — grape variety, vintage, how the wine was made (viniculture) and the style of the wine. And, once the winery has done its part, how the wine is stored. And, yes, storage conditions can be cumbersome and expensive. Plus, there’s the fact that you buy the wines and don’t get to enjoy them until they’re the right age. The understanding of the potential of wines to age goes back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. In Greece, they had what were called “straw wines” that could age because of their high sugar content. In Rome, two of the most sought after wines were Falernian and Surrentine, because of their ability to age for decades. The Greek physician Galen wrote that the taste of aged wine was desirable and it could be achieved by heating or smoking wines. To his credit, he also said that naturally aged, really older wines, were better than the “man made” aged wines. After the fall of the Roman Empire, aged wines and any desire for them was almost nonexistent. At that time, most of the wines produced in Europe were light bodied, pale colored and low in alcohol. Aging most of them longer than a couple of months resulted in vinegar. Yum! Over time, Europeans learned to enjoy heavier, fuller bodied and fortified wines, many of which could be aged. Large cellars of aging wines became popular, if you could afford it. Jancis Robinson, a Master of Wine and widely published wine writer, says that, today, only about 10 percent of red wines and 5 percent of white wines actually taste any better with age. She also says that only about the top 1 percent of all wines made are age worthy. Of course, part of this becomes a personal choice, depending on the style of wine you prefer. Generally, wines with a low pH, like Pinot Noir and Sangiovese, have greater aging capability. Red wines, with high levels of flavor compounds (phenolics that include tannins), are more likely to age successfully. Grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Syrah have more of these phenols; phenols come from the

  skins of the grapes. White wines, with high levels of acidity, age better. Since white wines are made without skin contact they have almost no phenols so the acidity levels matter more with these wines. (Barrel fermenting or aging of white wines can give them some phenols from the wood, just not enough to change their aging potential.) The hard part of all this is learning what “they” mean by more phenols and more acidity. No matter what grape a wine is made from, there is just no set rule on how long that grape will age. One Merlot can age two years, another might go 10 years. One Riesling, again, might last two years, another might age 30 years. And all we’re talking about here is grape variety, vintage, viniculture and style. Going into proper storage conditions for aging wines at home is probably too much to get into right now. So, just a bit more about what happens to a wine as it ages. The tannins in a red wine, which can be very harsh and coarse feeling in our mouth with a young wine, become smoother and softer feeling. The acidity of a white, although the actual amount of acidity stays the same, also softens, as a texture, as its wine ages. The aromas and flavors of aging wines also develop. They become more complex, more interwoven with each other, and can also multiply from five or six in a young wine to dozens in older wines. Yes, aging can be a good thing! And now, it’s wine time. Cosentino Winery was built

“Our emphasis has always been on first name friendly service.”

We have the opportunity to try some wines duly aged at the Cosentino Winery in Napa. The Cosentino Poet is a blend of 80 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 percent Cabernet Franc and 8 percent Merlot. It is rich with dark fruit flavors; a 2006 vintage. The Cosentino Novelist is a white blend made with 77 percent Sauvignon Blanc and 23 percent Semillon. The vintage is 2008. in 1990. Actually, Mitch Cosentino started making wine in Modesto, in 1980. But, 10 years later, he moved to Napa because he dreamed of being a great Napa winemaker. He has great skills and knowledge of his grapes and soils where they grow. And a great palate. He is able to make wines that not only taste good when they are released, but that also have good aging potential. (A treat in the Cosentino tasting room is to taste multiple vintages of one wine. A treat and an education.) This week we get to try slightly aged wines, a red and a white. The Cosentino Poet is a blend of 80 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 percent Cabernet Franc and 8 percent Merlot. It is rich with dark fruit flavors (dark plums, blackberries, bing cherries, pomegranate), cedar, spices and toasty oak. And the tannins? Smooth, integrated into and all around the flavors, so they are part of the wine, not a separate texture just hanging around waiting for something to do. And all this is in the 2006 vintage. And, for a reduced price of $19.97. (Normally this wine is about twice that much.) The Cosentino Novelist is a white blend. Seventy-seven percent Sauvignon Blanc and 23 percent Semillon. Both of these varieties have good acidity levels. Lemon blossoms, honeydew melon and a lovely creaminess mark this wine. Some hints of baking spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg) and lemon zest pop too. The vintage is 2008. And, again, at a reduced price, $12.97. So, now we have the opportunity to try some wines, duly aged at the winery. They are both very special, and, maybe, may start some of us on a new course of wine drinking. Just like each of us has the same personality we did when we were children, just more developed and well rounded now that we’re older, these two wines are more than they were. Older can be better — for us and for our wines. Enjoy.

Our emphasis has always been on first name friendly service with a hometown touch. We know you and you know us. Hometown people helping each other grow. We’re here to serve all your banking needs. Service has always been our first priority.

The Lunch Bunch was ready to feel the heat at one of Beaufort’s newest restaurants, So Hot Mongolian Grill. Located in Beaufort Town Center in the former home of The Pizza Inn, the Mongolian Grill held its grand opening in mid-March and we were all curious to see what it has to offer. The high ceilings and clean lines create an inviting atmosphere, and last Friday there were many other lunch patrons nestled in the leather-backed booths or sitting in groups at big tables.

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

Spring cleaning your dog can live with A layer of electric green pollen on every surface is the Lowcountry signal that Spring cleaning is about to begin. Time to open the windows and get out all those aerosol sprays, wet-jets, polishes and disinfectants and do the house up proud before clamping ourselves into the A/C for summertime. Know, however, the chemicals found in conventional cleaners can be more dangerous than the dirt they’re intended to clean. In 2008, the Washington, D.C., based Environmental Working Group conducted a study to determine the effects of cleaning solutions on our pets, and found high levels of toxic chemicals from household cleaners in dogs and cats. For dogs, blood and urine samples were contaminated with 35 chemicals, including 11 carcinogens, 31 chemicals toxic to the reproductive system, and 24 neurotoxins. Obviously the cleaners, waxes, and stain barriers we use on our floors and carpets are critical – dogs spend a lot of time lying, sitting, and walking “barefoot” on these areas, and guaranteed will find something to lick off the floor or off their paws. Products that claim to be safe may not be. Descriptions like “natural”, “ecofriendly, “non-toxic,” or, frighteningly, even “organic” don’t ensure a product is safe. Remember what’s printed on the package has little to do with what’s IN the package. Toxic products can be marketed as “pure,” “gentle,” “hypoallergenic” and “organic” due to labeling loopholes.

BowWOW!

Facts, observations and musings about Our Best Friends

BowWOW! Is a production of Tracie Korol and wholeDog. She is a canine behavior coach, Reiki practitioner, a canine massage therapist (CMT), herbalist and canine homeopath. Want more information? Have a question? Send a note to Tracie at letstalk@wholedog.biz or visit www.wholedog.biz.

A study found high levels of toxic chemicals from household cleaners in dogs and cats. When we, and our pets, inhale or ingest toxins from cleaners, the poisons go directly into the bloodstream and then to the internal organs. Cancer is the #1 killer of our canine companions in the U.S. and Canada today. Weakened immune systems can open the door to cancer. Toxins weaken immune systems. Conventional products can contain toxic ingredients with unknown long-term side effects that you may want to avoid such as phthalates, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phosphates, petrochemicals, petroleum-based by-products, and chlorine bleach. It appears those chemical cleaners are not such a good idea, after all. The good news is that using non-toxic cleaners is easy, they can clean as well as the commercial products, they won’t hurt your Best Friend, and they cost much less. With a little preparation (half an hour at the grocery store and half an hour of mixing your own cleaners), you can have

a sparkling house, make your home safe for you, your children and your pets; and you’ll save money doing it. Ingredients to consider: white vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, Castile soap, tea tree oil, olive oil, empty plastic spray bottles, jars with tops, reusable dusting cloths, old cloth towels or diapers, spatula or cardboard (useful for scooping up solids), club soda, plastic bristle scrub brush and/or dobie-type of sponge, permanent marker to label each container. Recipes and green cleaning suggestions abound online.

But before you start moving the furniture and vacuuming like my mother, consider how your dog will react to the abrupt changes in the house, the increased activity level and certainly, the different smells. Dogs and Dust: Dogs that have respiratory issues or are sensitive to dust and airborne allergens — especially shortnosed breeds like bulldogs and pugs — should visit with a pup friend until the dust settles (literally). Who’s underfoot? Some dogs can’t resist the urge to help you do your chores — especially when you’re scrubbing their precious treasures. For safety, make sure your pet is not nearby while you’re cleaning, particularly when you’re slinging the vacuum or spraying your vinegar solution. Keep your dog calm. If your pet equates any disruption in the house with his world coming to an end, it’s best to send him on a play date until you’re finished with your spring-cleaning. Reward yourself for creating an immaculate space by treating your Best Friend to a new fashion collar or toy you can play with together.

PET OF THE WEEK Meet Chris. Chris was born in January 2011. He enjoys napping in the sun and would prefer a quiet home with other cats. Chris is neutered, microchipped and current on her vaccinations. You can meet Chris Monday through Saturday at the Palmetto Animal League Adoption Center in Riverwalk Business Park.
