Beaufort County courthouse under way

The above drawing produced by Glick Boehm Architects of Charleston shows what the Courthouse will look like once completed.


rews are busy working on the new face of the Beaufort County courthouse. This project, approved back in April by Beaufort County Council, is under way and those coming to the courthouse will notice some changes. The biggest change will be walking into the main entrance. Anyone needing to come to the Beaufort County courthouse will park in the main parking lot and walk up the sidewalk between the courthouse and administration building. Once they reach the top of the sidewalk they will detour onto a driveway and walk around the construction. There are signs showing the way. Ground broke last week on the $13,430,500 project. Construction will involve the removal of the existing exterior and replacing it with a new one. The existing roof will also be replaced along with the outside doors and windows. The entrance and back balcony will also look different when the project is complete. Both are being enclosed providing additional office space. This multi-million dollar project is to fix water damage as a result of defective construction back in 1998. Monies received by the county from a lawsuit filed for that defective construction will go towards today’s renovations. Fraser Construction of Bluffton is conducting the work. The renovation is expected to last roughly 15 months.

letter to the editor

Thank You, Senator Davis By George R. Wilson, Jr

State under funding of the Beaufort County School District (BCSD) has been a long, relentless problem. When Tom Davis ran for the State Senate (2008), he promised, if elected, he would obtain more state educational funding. Senator Davis insisted that the State legislators create an Ad Hoc Committee to review our state’s education funding formulas. He chaired this new committee and issued a report explaining why the BCSD was underfunded by the state. State under funding was absorbed by local

taxpayers. Senator Davis identified two primary flaws in funding formulas. First, the Educational Funding Act (EFA) allocated funds to local school districts based on its aggregate assessed tax base, even though a district was restricted by state law as to what properties it could tax for schools. Second, the state legislature routinely reallocated to the school districts millions of Education Improvement Act dollars, which are distributed primarily on a per-pupil basis via the EFA formula, which is flawed and negatively impacting BCSD. Total state education spending has

not changed much over the last four years. However, Senator Davis’ efforts to correct funding formulas increased BCSD’s annual state funding from $69.3 to $76.1 million (+9.8%) during this period. The 2012-2013 state education funding budget was based on the senate proposal which provided BCSD additional funding. Therefore, the BCSD just lowered their requested local tax increase from two mils to one mil. Although your task is not complete, thank you, Senator Davis, for maintaining your promise to correct the education funding formula reducing the local tax burden.

Reject Act 388 II By Randy Page Bureaucrats are pushing a plan to raise taxes and increase spending on public schools. The districts spent $9.4 billion last year. Apparently $13,600 per student isn’t enough. The plan will raise taxes across the state. Families and small business owners will be hit hardest. First, local taxes for public school operations would be eliminated and replaced with a new statewide property tax. Then the districts would get the chance to go back and (re)introduce “new” local taxes to supplement the state money. The tax hike is the brainchild of school bureaucrats, working through taxpayer-subsidized associations. The authors call themselves “educators” since they aren’t actually “teachers,” and they’ve been working on the tax

scheme for two years. On one hand, they insist the new state property is necessary to “equalize” funding across all parts of the state. On the other hand, allowing districts to reintroduce local taxes will increase the gaps. Their estimates predict a net tax increase of $947 million the first year. Public schools already collect money from local, state and federal taxpayers. State money is mostly based on how many students are enrolled in each district, with a few major caveats. Districts in low-income areas (whose own tax bases are small) get more. Schools who enroll many low-income students get more. Schools whose students have higher instructional needs get more. Those schools with the lowest test scores and graduation rates also get more. In other words, funding

levels are often highest at the “poorest” schools already. Beaufort, Charleston and Horry districts took in closer to $3,500 in state aid, with total funding in the $13,000 to $16,000 range. The question is not how much money should be slated for government schools, where it comes from, or how it is redistributed. The question is how well the money is being spent and what (if any) correlation there is between the level of funding and the achievement of students. Data from the South Carolina Budget and Control Board show that as total funding for schools rises, the percentage that reaches the classroom drops. Today it is less than 45 cents per dollar. One of the largest drop-offs in instructional spending occurred in the run up to Act 388’s implementation, which saw a massive binge in school construction. That controversial act–another contentious plan to swap local taxes for state ones–has been cited as a reason for the new tax hike. While the 388 “swap” was intended to slow the growth in local tax collection, total district revenue from local sources has not dropped since 2007. Meanwhile, the state funding in lieu of local taxes has nearly tripled! Frustratingly, there is no data reliably tying student performance to education funding levels. Not in South Carolina; not anywhere. Nationally, South Carolina is ranked 15th highest in incomeadjusted per-student spending on public education. Still, four-in-10 students in those public schools will not graduate with a high school diploma. And the best and brightest in the highest performing district (York 4) still earned average SAT scores 200 points below their peers in the best North Carolina district last year. That’s despite a lower testing rate in the South Carolina district. Another billion dollars won’t remedy problems on this scale. We can’t afford a second Act 388. Pursuing a far-reaching reform on how money is spent would be a better start. Randy Page is President of South Carolinians for Responsible Government (SCRG) and a Board Director of the Palmetto Family Council (PFC).

Your PercePtion vs. Your realitY Believe it or not, there are people on track to reach their financial goals, but the only way they know they’re on track is that they took the time for figure it out. Knowing where to start remains the first major obstacle for most people when it come to financial planning. If you never start the process you have two problems: 1. You have no idea where you are: what I call your current reality 2. You have no defined goals It’s rather hard to arrive at a destination with a trip plan that lacks a beginning and an end. Of course the other issue with having no plan is the low-grade headache it creates because you do have a sense of where you are and where you want to go, but no idea if you’re on track. We all know the feeling of lying in bed wondering if we’re going to make it. Getting started is really just as simple as taking the time and getting the help to: • Clearly define your current reality, where are you today • Put some framework around where you want to go The task of assessing future financial needs can be daunting. Often we have perceptions that,

under scrutiny, don’t match reality and have to be adjusted. , BUT the point is that until you sit down, TALK about it, and put some numbers around it, you have NO PLAN! It’s important to understand that things will change. No matter how much time we spend creating a plan it can’t capture everything about our future reality. All we’re trying to do is make the best guess we can and move on. If you understand that these are guesses (very important guesses), then you can give yourself permission to not obsess over them. Make the best guess you can with the information you have, and then commit to revisit it often enough to make course corrections long before you veer too far off course. The other wonderful thing that will happen is that often we find out that even though our perception of our future financial needs was not even close to reality, we gain a sense of control that helps us focus on living our lives NOW. In many cases, we learn that we do have enough money and time to meet our goals. It might not even be a situation of needing to grit our teeth and save more, but we never know until we take the time to plan!

E. Perry Burris, MD, to be leader of women’s breast health needs at Beaufort Memorial Hospital Providing the most comprehensive, quality breast services locally is the goal of Dr. Perry Burrus, a board certified surgeon with a special interest in breast care who was recently named the hospital’s Breast Program Leader. As the hospital’s Breast Program Leader Dr. Burrus is assembling a team of specialists from a variety of specialties – oncology, radiology and social services, to name a few – to evaluate and create services that address the fullest scope of a woman’s breast health needs. “We’ve developed an expectation among ourselves and the women we serve to provide an outstanding level of breast care, right here in our community,” says Dr. Burrus, who is a part of Beaufort Memorial Surgical Specialists. The team is working with Duke University to develop the program, and is following the National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines to ensure that each woman

receives the most current and widely accepted screening and treatment recommendations. “By bringing together the best minds across all of the services that a woman encounters in her breast health journey, we can ensure that the care we provide meets all of her needs,” he says. Dr. Burrus and his surgical partners at Beaufort Memorial Surgical Specialists were integral to the development of the Women’s Imaging Center at Beaufort Memorial, which opened last August. The team sees patients there during the week to offer convenient breast consultations, and Dr. Burrus and partner Deanna Mansker, MD, recently began seeing breast patients in Bluffton at the Beaufort Memorial Bluffton Medical Services office in Westbury Park. In addition to being the Breast Program Leader,

Dr. Burrus holds positions on the hospital’s Cancer Committee and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) responsible for reviewing, approving, and opening access to national clinical trials locally. Dr. Burrus earned his medical degree and completed his surgical residency at Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. He completed a fellowship in plastic surgery at the University of Tennessee in Memphis. He is board-certified by the American College of Surgeons, and is a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, South Carolina Medical Association, American Medical Association, American College of Surgeons, Moretz Surgical Society, and the American Board of Surgery.

THE INDIE FILM CORNER By Dennis Tavernetti

“The Island President” from The Documentary Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts Friday, August 17 at 4 p.m.

Synopsis: This is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced - the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives and make them uninhabitable. A classic David and Goliath tale, this documentary captures Nasheed’s first year in office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009 and pleas for action to save his country. Ratings & Reviews: Internet rating sites, IMDb: 6.5; Rotten Tomatoes: Critics: 98/Audience: 83 Very Good marks. Critics: SF Chronicle: “…mostly compelling documentary about that rarest of breeds, an appealing politician.”; Wall Street Journal: “... fascinating...”; NY Times: “…the geopolitical complexities are daunting.” Previewer Comments: This is a very appealing documentary with the beautiful filming of his islands and a most engaging leader who certainly knows how to appeal and shape public opinion. It is serious, scary and entertaining. It would hard to imagine a more charismatic leader in the world today, facing a very serious problem, so far without resolution, and perhaps not in the time frame necessary. Rated: PG Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5. Call USCB Center for the Arts box office at 843-521-4145 or purchase day of performance. Box office opens one hour prior to show time. “Elena” from World Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts Wednesday, August 22 at 6:30 p.m. Synopsis: Winner of a Cannes’ Special Jury Prize, Elena is a gripping, modern twist on the classic noir thriller. Mid Sixties spouses Vladimir and Elena

uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment. He’s a still-virile, wealthy businessman; she’s his dowdy former nurse who has clearly “married up” and married for his money. Estranged from his own daughter, Vladimir openly despises his wife’s freeloading son and family. But when a sudden illness and an unexpected reunion with his daughter threaten the dutiful second wife’s potential inheritance, she is driven to hatch a desperate plan to make things “right”. The result is a film that is a subtly stylish exploration of crime, punishment and human nature. Ratings & Reviews: Internet rating sites, IMDb: 7.3; Rotten Tomatoes: Critics: 93/Audience: 73 Good marks. Critics: Minneapolis Star Tribune: “… riveting psychological suspense…”; Chicago Tribune: “Performances are superb across the board, framed in elegant widescreen compositions that simmer…” Roger Ebert: “… fascination in its unblinking portrait of characters who care about nothing but money”.

Last Chance To Buy Your Tickets! for the 28th Annual


Friday, August 17

Previewer Comments: This film in Russian with English subtitles which portrays Russia’s current social being as well has the characters of this family with their problems, needs and lack of morality. We watch as the film exploits crime, punishment and human nature. It reminds us of the very real feelings of greed, entitlement and our response when things shift from what we had been promised or believed would be as the result of our relationships, which many are based on “what is in it for me”…and this is where we go wrong. Rated: NR, but likely to be considered to be R. Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5. Call USCB Center for the Arts box office @ 843-521-4145 or purchase day of performance. Box office opens one hour prior to show time. Dennis Tavernetti is a resident of St. Helena Island and retired to the low country having a lifelong interest in the arts. He encouraged USCB ‘s Center for the Arts to investigate the possibility of utilizing new technology to bring Indie, World and Documentary HD films to Beaufort, which currently are normally only screened in major metropolitan cities.

Saturday, August 25 @ 6pm Zac Harmon: Music is Medicine Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, Harmon is a disciple of the Farish Street blues sound. During the 50’s and 60’s Harmon hung out at his father’s pharmacy on Farish, soaking up the aura and sounds of the musician customers while developing his skills as a guitarist, organist and vocalist. His career encompasses guitaring for Z.Z Hill, Dorothy Moore, McKinley Mitchell and Sam Myers; crafting songs for Karyn White, Freddie Jackson, Evelyn “Champagne” King, The Whispers, Cherrelle, K.C. & Jo Jo, The Mississippi Mass Choir and Children’s Choir, Alexander O’Neal and the O’Jays. His 2002 album, Live at Babe & Ricky’s Inn, is an electrifying testimonial, featuring eight original songs that embody the Mississippi blues sound. In 2004 he won The Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge. “Harmon and his Mid-South Blues Revue slammed the blues to the ground and blew the roof off the joint, which was especially impressive as this venue was outdoors. The first tune made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, always a good sign.” - Mike Ross, Edmonton Sun.

A family-friendly “Vetpalooza” concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Waterfront Park. It will feature performances by Lt Col Mike Corrado, USMC, and his band “Machine Gun” from Wilmington, NC, Iraq veteran and double amputee Dale Beatty and Outlaw 21. 82nd Airborne Division veteran Rockie Lynn and his band will headline the show. Rockie Lynne has appeared nationally on “Good Morning America,” The Grand Ole Opry “Live” and Fox News. His debut single, “Lipstick,” was a top 30 hit. Admission is $10 and free for active duty military and their families. Saturday, Sept. 15: Independence Ride and 5K Run at MCAS, 8 a.m. Cycling is one of the best vehicles for breaking down the barriers between the able-bodied and disabled communities. For the veterans, many of whom have not been physically challenged since their injuries, the competition brings back memories and the sense of accomplishment from their days of doing 25-mile hikes. Their participation, in spite of their challenges, shows that they can still do it. Riding alongside ablebodied participants further empowers them and the experience is life changing for all. On- site registration opens at 8 a.m. at MCAS, Beaufort. Participants may also register online at beaufort-sc/ldw3-independence-5krun-and-ride-2012. Registration before Aug. 17 guarantees a t-shirt.

Dan Weekend. The 12” x 18” Americanmade flags will be individualized with the name of the business, organization or individual the purchaser wishes to honor. They will be secured to the fence surrounding the concert at the park. After the final show, purchasers may take their flag home as a keepsake or flags will be mailed to them.

Cataract surgery reduces hip fracture risk By Mark Siegel, MD, FAAO Patients who had cataract removal surgery were found to have a 16% decrease in the risk of hip fracture compared with patients who did not undergo the procedure, according to an observational study of more than 400,000 Medicare beneficiaries. The association was even more profound in patients with severe cataracts, demonstrating a 23% reduction in 1-year hip fracture odds. The study tracked hip fracture incidence

Mark Siegel, MD, FAAO Board certified, American Board of Ophthalmology, www. seaislandophthalmology. com in a cohort of Medicare patients from 2002 to 2009. The medical records of 410,809 patients who had cataracts removed surgically were analyzed for hip fractures

that occurred within 1 year of the surgery. These data were then compared with hip fracture incidence in a matched group of patients who had cataracts but did not have cataract surgery. The results were published in the August edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association ( JAMA). The researchers recommend future prospective studies using standardized registries of patients with cataracts to help further elucidate the association between cataract surgery and fracture risk.

Cataract surgery has already been demonstrated to be a cost-effective intervention for visual improvement. The results in this study suggest the need for further investigation of the additional potential benefit of cataract surgery as a cost-effective intervention to decrease the incidence of fractures in the elderly. In addition, the study suggests that patients should never be considered too old to have cataract surgery. In fact, the greatest reduction in hip fracture risk was in patients who had cataract surgery when they were in their 80s!

How bad is it REALLY, to eat junk food? By Danette Vernon

If you have ever heard someone say in regard to their temper, or weight, or the early onset of diabetes, “Well, it’s my genetics,” what you heard in that moment…was somewhat of a myth. Something that you may have learned in school, that no longer exists as pure fact. In truth, for every ill, or for every thought you have that requires a chemical reaction, and they all do, your cells do the work, not your genetics. If you are on the verge of a temper tantrum, your cells send a message throughout your body to increase your heart rate, deepen your breath, shut down stomach processes, etc. And if your body detects an infection, the same, your cells post a message to all areas of concerns, communiqués to fight, to heal. The ONLY time your cells access your genes, your internal blueprint, is when they have to replace a cell, or when they have come up with a

response that they have never dealt with before. Your genes merely wait to provide information, your cells reflect YOU, what you eat, drink, and think, every day, and that is the science of Epigenics. You are not your genes, you are your responses to your environment. But it goes deeper than that. Here is reality: what you do, what you eat, actually affects the genetics

that you pass on to your children or grandchildren. If you eat junk food, regular meals at fast food restaurants, consume ready-made foods, GMO’s and genetically modified foods, foods laden with pesticide; or if you focus on all of the evil in the world, never easing up on yourself or giving yourself a day full of gratitude, or even a moment of joy, it’s not just you, in your time, that is affected. It’s your genetic material that is affected. “In 2005 scientists from Spain that studied Epigenetics showed why twins with identical DNA might develop completely different medical problems. And this is very important because conventional medicine wants us to believe that many diseases are out of our own control, that beautiful and healthy people are just a matter of luck and genetic chance. The study showed that “if one twin smokes, drinks and eats nothing but junk food while the other takes care

of her body, the two sets of DNA are getting entirely different chemical ‘lessons’–one is getting a balanced education when the other is getting schooled in the dirty streets of chemical chaos.” In her book Deep Nutrition, Catherine Shanahan, MD, talks about how genes are affected by the foods we eat: “Epigenetic researchers study how our genes react to our behavior, and they’ve found that just about everything we eat, think, breathe, or do can, directly or indirectly, trickle down to touch the gene and affect its performance in some way. Not only does what we eat affect us down to the level of our genes, our physiques have been sculpted, in part, by the foods our parents and grandparents ate (or didn’t eat) generations ago. So take a deep breath, have an organic carrot stick, and strengthen generations to come.

Tribute to Roger Steele


lmost 300 people attended the Tribute to Roger Steele at the USCB Performing Arts Center last Saturday where six longtime friends shared different aspects of his life, dressed in costumes from Roger’s celebrated Valentine Lanier Laney print series (he did a different selfportrait every year in costume). The fascinating series of self-portraits is on display for the rest of the month through mid September in the galleries at USCB. The six friends who shared touching and often funny remembrances were Dennis Davenport, Scott Graber, Tom Davis, Bob Allen, David Taub and Bob Morris. It was organized by Lee Logan. From the program: “Roger Steele was more than a professor of art, he was a champion of the Arts. More than a printmaker, he was a herald of the art form and a founding member of the Southern Graphics Council. More than an educator, he was a mentor of teachers. More than generous, he gave unselfishly of himself. …more than a friend in word, he was a friend in deed. Roger freely shared his gifts with us. The only way we can lose them is to forget him.” Roger was a wonderful, generous, good humored person who will be greatly missed by the community and is survived by Cheryl Steele, his lovely wife. Roger was a favorite teacher at USCB for over 30 years; please support his legacy by sending donations to the University of South Carolina Beaufort, designating the Roger L. Steele Scholarship Fund, and mailed to USCB Development Office, One University Boulevard, Bluffton, SC 29909.

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

Paul Nurnberg’s

‘Perfect Picture’ By Lanier Laney


bet Paul Nurnberg never imagined when he was growing up as a kid in land-locked Elmira, New York with an avid interest in photography that one day he would be dangling four stories off the side of one of the largest container ships in the world trying to get “the perfect shot”. Says Paul, “It was a few years ago, while shooting for a magazine, that I rode a harbor pilot’s boat out to meet the ship coming into the Port of Savannah and climbed up the rope and rubber ladder on the outside of the ship while moving through the ocean, and took photos while the ship came into port. At the time it was one of the largest container ships in the world.” “I have flown in (and photographed from) lots of different air planes (and jumped out of two of them) and helicopters, scuba dived and have gotten access to many different places and situations that most

people never get to see–paper mills, chemical plants, operating rooms during surgery, food packaging plants and even large port cranes. I really love this profession because every assignment is something different,” Paul continued Paul got a B.S. in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He assisted other photographers for several years after collage, then worked as an in-house photographer for two large corporations (FM global and Arthur D. Little, Inc.) before opening his own business almost 26 years ago. As the owner of Nurnberg Photography, LLC, in Port Royal, he does all kinds of commercial and advertising photography including industrial, medical, architecture, people lifestyle, heavy equipment and food. Food photography, a particular specialty of Paul’s, is very difficult to do as anyone who has ever tried knows. And you can see Paul’s great work in this area by looking at the cover of and beautiful food photographs throughout Debbie Covington’s recently published cookbook, Celebrate Everything. The way Paul got to Beaufort was because of his high school sweetheart, Libby Anderson. He followed her here when she got a job as Planning Director for the City of Beaufort 16 years ago. They will be celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary this September! Paul says that he loves the beauty of all the water, land and history here and enjoys it all at their home off Hermitage Road. Although lifestyle, people, architectural spaces and food would be considered Paul’s specialties, he does all types of photography. He photographed the set dressing images for the movie The Gift when it was being filmed in Savannah. “Those are all of the pictures seen in the movie: on desks, nightstands and photo albums. I photographed Katie Holmes, Keanu Reeves, Kate Blanchett and a few other stars.” says Paul. It’s not all glamor though as photo shoots come with their own sets of hazards. “Last year, while photographing for the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build in Beaufort, my camera backpack was set on fire while I was wearing it. It looked pretty spectacular for those watching, but I was really lucky that three people put out the fire before I was injured,” said Paul. Paul has been recognized by others in his profession as well. He is the current vice president of the South Carolina chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers, immediate past president (two years) of the Photography Club of Beaufort, member of the American Photographic Artists (past national secretary), and he still found time to found the Beaufort chapter of Greendrinks, which is committed to environmental sustainabilty in the community. Paul’s secret for success is simple: “I always try to exceed my clients expectations”. And he does it over and over again with one perfect picture after another.

Paul’s photography studio is at 918 8th Street in Port Royal. Reach him at 912-429-0189, or Visit his photography website: He teaches photography classes as well, from basic “how to use your camera” as well as more advanced classes. He also teaches small classes through his studio and through Artworks. He also does one on one private lessons.

Coosaw Elementary first in “Leader in Me” By Tess Malijenovsky

Coosaw Elementary will be the first school in Beaufort County and the 12th school in South Carolina to implement “The Leader in Me,” a model for developing “the whole child”. Monday, August 13, teachers gathered in the media center with principal Carmen Dillard and Rick Weber, a Leader in Me mentor, to brainstorm ways to gradually imbed this new model into their school. The Leader in Me was developed by Dr. Stephen Covey and based off his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Rather than introducing a brand new curriculum, the model will weave seven habits of leadership into the school’s current curriculum in a ubiquitous fashion. “It’s just a feeling you have when you come in. The students hold their heads a little higher because they have confidence in themselves, or they have pride because this is their school,” explained Rick Weber. The teachers are able to instill this feeling by building a strong foundation that uses habits and leadership tools. Those seven

(Left to right): Leader in Me Menotr Rick Weber, Math Coach Renee Glover, Principal Carmen Dillard, Media Specialist Lynda Gernigan

habits include being proactive, setting personal goals, making priorities, searching for solutions, listening to the ideas and feelings of others, working with others and healthy living. “When you see a kindergartner come up to you and say ‘this is my personal goal’ you take a step back as an adult and say

‘do I have a personal goal?’” continued Mr. Weber. Renee Glover, a Coosaw Math Coach who traveled to various schools and symposiums on Leader in Me over the last two years, thought of her son and the leadership training he received from the military: “I thought, how great would it

be to start with very young children and help them to develop those skills we just assume that they’re going to get as adults? If we can start here early in a nurturing environment it will help them to be more successful, to be happier and also to give back to the community.” Implementing the new model will be a gradual process that’s expected to take at least three years. “We just want to make sure we’re not rushing and that we’re doing it properly so that we’re not overwhelming the students or the teachers,” said Glover. However, Principal Dillard and the Coosaw Elementary staff are excited to get started. The excitement will have a domino affect: the teachers being excited makes the students excited, which makes the parents excited and finally reaches the community. “Once you get the community on board there’s no stopping,” Weber said. “It’s about bringing everyone together with the same purpose in mind—to develop those leadership qualities in these elementary students who will one day be leaders in the real world.”

Defense Department grant will offer Chinese instruction at Robert Smalls Middle School The National Security Education Office, part of the U.S. Department of Defense, has awarded a $256,200 grant to the Beaufort County School District to offer Mandarin Chinese instruction at Robert Smalls Middle School. The grant will fund Project CLIMB, the Critical Language Initiative in Mandarin in Beaufort. Nearly 25 percent of the 475 students at Robert Smalls Middle come from military-connected families. “We recognize that significant language gains are made at an early age and are proud to work with Beaufort on this endeavor and to enhance K-12 language education,” said David Edwards, the program manager at the Defense Language and National Security Education Office, which works to strengthen and coordinate strategic foreign language programs for students from military families. Superintendent Valerie Truesdale said the Defense Department grant was timely because Congress recently cut its financial

support for foreign language programs. “With countries and cultures more closely connected every day, it’s vitally important for students to have access to quality foreign language programs at all stages of their educations,” Truesdale said. “With this new addition, we will now offer Mandarin Chinese at two elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. Students who complete the entire course of study will have a valuable skill that they can use in further college studies, in business careers or in the military.” Five new Chinese teachers from various parts of China will join the district’s Mandarin language staff for the upcoming school year. As many as 200 additional students will be taking Mandarin this year across the district, officials said. The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Educational Partnership, which facilitated the grant review and selection process, provides support and resources to schools

throughout the U.S. that serve children of military families. Nationwide, more than a million school-age children are from military families, with the majority attending

public schools. Beaufort County schools serve many children whose parents are based at the Marine Corps Air Station, the Parris Island Recruiting Depot and the U.S. Naval Hospital.

Health conscious schools Beaufort Elementary School US Healthier School Challenge Bronze Award Winning School Students may purchase a nutritious Class “A” lunch from a varying menu, which is served on a daily basis. Menus will be sent home monthly. Please join your child for lunch as often as you like. When sending a packed lunch from home please make the lunch nutritious. Please do not send candy and/or soda. Please do not bring lunches to school for your child from “Fast Food” restaurants as special treat. We are trying to promote healthy eating habits. Whale Branch Elementary School and Davis Early Learning Center US Healthy Challenge Bronze Award from the White House We are proud of our commitment to health, fitness and nutrition. We participated in “International Walk to School Day.” Students are encouraged to make healthy choices on the daily basis. In collaboration with the Sheldon Township’s health committee, we receive weekly “Health Tips” and include them in our morning program. When packing lunches, we offer parents the following suggestions: avoid prepackaged, processed foods; make sandwiches with whole wheat bread, not white, and avoid processed lunch meats; pack whole fruits or vegetables like carrots or celery sticks; include dips like hummus or guacamole for the vegetables; instead of packing chips or cookies try whole wheat pretzels or crackers; and replace soda or juice with fat-free milk or water.

A new home for Riverview Charter School By Tess Malijenovsky

Riverview Charter School outgrew its location on Burroughs Avenue when 114 new students, 456 students total, enrolled for the 2012-2013 school year. The charter school spent its summer break relocating to the vacant Shell Point Elementary where students will enjoy a much larger learning space. The move will provide Riverview students and faculty with many facilities that didn’t exist at the Burroughs location, including 30 spacious classrooms, a gymnasium, a media center, a fully functional kitchen and more playground acreage. “At our old school our gym was our cafeteria. We did everything in one room,” commented Mandy Klepper, Operations Manger of Riverview’s relocation. “Now the art teacher has tables outside

Riverview, formerly Shell Point Elementary

of her room where she can actually go out and do art outside,” said Klepper. Riverview students will soon be able to spend more time learning in the sunshine. Teachers are also excited for the ample space, according to Klepper: “Their jaws drop. They love it! They’re so excited that the students are going to have so much more room to learn and play.”

Riverview’s first gymnasium

The Beaufort County School District released a statement in March recognizing the benefits of the move to Shell Point Elementary, not only for Riverview Charter School but also for the school district and the Beaufort community: “Under current state code, Shell Point Elementary School, constructed in 1958, would be at risk of needing substantial

renovations if not used as a school for two years or more. Riverview’s use of the building extends the facility’s viability for future use by BCSD while providing Riverview with a larger temporary home until it can raise the funds needed for its permanent facility.” By the same token Riverview’s previous location won’t sit unused. Holy Trinity Classical Christian School has already made arrangements to move into the school on Burroughs Avenue. And although the faculty of Riverview is excited for their new school building, Director Alison Thomas says it will not affect Riverview’s long-term plans to build a permanent campus on Old Salem Road: “This new lease is for a twoyear term (with two, one-year extensions) so our building plans continue to be a top priority.”

St. Helena and Shanklin Elementary schools embrace new United Way tutoring program “Up until fourth grade children are learning to read, but beginning in fourth grade they’re reading to learn.”

The United Way of the Lowcountry is working with school districts in Beaufort and Jasper counties to improve reading skills in eight elementary schools. The goal is to have 80 percent of all students reading on grade level when they enter fourth grade. Within 10 years, the United Way’s local goal is to reduce high school dropouts by 50 percent.

To help with the reading, United Way of the Lowcountry is recruiting 600 volunteers to tutor and read starting this fall. They already have over 100 volunteers but need many, many more to help its mission. Shanklin Elementary and St. Helena Elementary were selected in Beaufort County for the new tutoring program.

“We’re very excited to be a part of their new program,” said Principal Keeler of St. Helena Elementary School. Currently only 40-50 percent of St. Helena’s fourth graders are on grade level for reading, according to Principal Keeler. “So many of our moms work, some two jobs, and so the tutors will give [the students] that

The pioneering spirit BA is excited about our new “Why America is Free” program, which is for 4th and 5th graders and teaches them the origins of the United States. Using a interdisciplinary approach, it actually has each student assume the role of a young person in the revolutionary war period. It is a 6-week course that culminates with a 18th century social function where all participants are in costume and in character. New e-tool for college application Naviance is now available to all BA seniors and their parents to allow them to track college applications online. The majority of colleges now require the common application be submitted electronically and Naviance facilitates this process. This past spring orientation was held for parents to introduce them to the system and set up their access. The college Advising Office is working with all seniors to expedite the application process utilizing Naviance. As an example, the Beaufort Academy graduating class of 2012, with 26 graduates, submitted over 135 college applications. This system will make this process much more user friendly. More choice of electives at BA Beaufort Academy is enhancing the electives for the upper school by adding electives that allow students to explore specific areas of interest. A sample of these electives are Art History, Creative Writing, Multimedia, Graphic Arts, Philosophy and Music Appreciation. School briefs compiled by Tess Malijenovsky.

Nick Collins, age 26, guitarist and vocalist for local rock/groove band Fowler’s Mustache and dear friend of the publishers of The Island News, was involved in a serious car accident on Aug. 3. in Charleston, SC. Collins was ejected from the back of one vehicle after it crashed early Friday morning on I-526. He was then struck by an 18-wheeler, which did not stop. The truck ran over Collins’ legs. Nick’s left leg was removed below the knee, according to Collins’ father, Mt.

Omni gym helps college girl lose weight, gain confidence Case Study: Becca Little, age 20, college student home for summer “ I came into the Omni Health & Fitness club when I saw a sign that said I could lose 12 pounds in two weeks. I wanted to lose my Freshman 15 and my Sophomore 15! After 10 days of training and exercising, I had lost four percent body fat and the pounds were coming off. Now, after two months, I’ve seen an outrageous improvement. I feel healthier. I lost an inch in all my measurements. My clothes fit better. Before I started, I could barely walk to the top of the McTeer Bridge. Now, I’m running it twice. My trainer, Kipp Richardson, told me what kinds of foods to stay away from. He got me eating smaller portions but more often during the day. When I get back to college, they’re going to see a new me, and I’m determined to get even fitter by eating better and exercising!” Come see why Becca and others like her use Omni Health & Fitness for all their fitness needs!

Premier Junior Cotillion Program to begin August 26 The First Beaufort Junior Cotillion program begins on Sunday, August 26. There are a few openings for the first class. The high impact program is designed to improve students’ social skills. Fourth through ninth grade students are presented a character education, etiquette and social dance training. Classes include monthly dances and events from August through January, which are

held at the Grand Hall, The Old Arsenal, 701 Craven Street. The strength of the program is its hands-on approach to teaching. The students have an opportunity through repetition to recollect social skills that will be a valuable asset throughout their life, says Director, Mary Kennerty. With practice students become “esteemed” and self-confident with their social behavior.

The social skills components, which range from first impressions to formal table manners are organized in the course notebooks and monthly homework is assigned and checked. The children learn the South Carolina state dance, the Charleston Shag, along with ballroom dancing and a line dance. To register for the upcoming Season, please call Director, Mary Kennerty at 843-881-8755 or register online at

history with holly: memory lane By Nancy Lura Porter I remember when The Royal Drive-in was where Piggly Wiggly in the Royal Oaks Shopping Center is now. It also had a playground for the kids. Where Burger King is, was owned by blacks on both sides of the highway. I can also remember when Ribaut Road was a two-lane highway. And I also recall when we had our first sit-in demonstration at the Grey Hound Bus Station. It was located on Scott Street between Bay and Port Republic Streets in downtown Beaufort.

lunch bunch

Cat Island Grill & Pub By Tess Malijenovsky This time while Pamela was away in Brazil, Lunch Bunch kidnapped her baby Wolfe, and her lovely motherin-law, Linda, and headed over to Cat Island Grill & Pub. Joining us was David Boone (son of Buck Boone), our newest T.I.N. accomplice. CIGP’s new chef Jameson Allmond specially prepared for us four appetizers from the dinner menu. Each of us had

our personal favorite, but Lunch Bunch unanimously agreed that they were all exquisite. The zucchini wrapped in goat cheese had a wonderful balance of texture, the al dente vegetable and crispy bacon bits complimenting the soft cheese; and the strong flavor of the goat cheese was sweetly cut by a balsamic reduction. Equally, the jalapeño bites were battered and flash friend with a surprisingly soft cream cheese mixture,

which was not too spicy. The stuffed mushrooms were perhaps my favorite because of the complex yet well-rounded flavors: a mushroom cap filled with sauteed bacon, onion, bell peppers and cream cheese. And lastly, the shrimp and crab fritters with an avocado aioli carefully made into miniature cakes. Two thumbs way up. Chef Denise continued to impress us with our lunch entrees albeit the common sandwich. Buck ordered one of his favorite sandwiches–the chicken sandwich. After seeing that 8 oz grilled chicken breast come out with melted Swiss and applewood bacon, I knew where I’d be ordering my next chicken sandwich. I ordered the crab cake sandwich with Maryland lump crab meat and a mango sauce. Chef Denise exceeded my expectations with the generously sized and delicious crab cake patty. Elizabeth ordered the special: two pieces of fried chicken, fries and slaw. David ordered the fish and chips, which comes out with two golden brown cod fillets. He and Elizabeth raved about the fries. Nikki loved her order of the fajitas. However, if I were to nominate any one sandwich the award it would Linda’s marinated, grilled portabella sandwich

that was layered with ripe avocado, tomato, onion and melted Swiss cheese. Cat Island Grill & Pub is located in the Sanctuary Golf Club at 8 Waveland Ave., Cat Island, S.C.

Prawn Stars! By Terry Sweeney

You know there are some fabulous yet inexpensive California white wines that pair beautifully with the biggest stars in the shrimp world: prawns. Or so I thought. But I was wrong. Not about the wine of course, but Professor Google informs me that a prawn is actually a completely different species in the lobster family found quite far from these parts. Down here, what many people are calling prawns are actually jumbo shrimp pretending they’re prawns! Well I guess the same thing happens in x-rated movies. That pizza guy who’s delivering a lot more than pizza isn’t really an employee of a legitimate pizza chain, and it’s certainly doubtful that the busty, naughty nurse in the white stilettos ever graduated from a reputable nursing school with her degree. It’s all pretend. I even double checked with a local shrimper who confirmed our juicy southern jumbo shrimp are just good actors. He told me there are even bigger shrimp on the way however. Apparently, huge tiger shrimp have started to swim

our way from Asia. But heck, they’re not prawns either. So instead, let’s just have some good, clean fun with the jumbo shrimp we have and its Terry soulmate–white Sweeney wine. There are three go-to white wines that I always serve with this very tasty recipe for skewered citrus garlic prawns (aka jumbo shrimp down here) that you can prepare on your barbecue grill. You’ve heard me mention these wines before and in some instances even dedicate entire columns to them. The first is Sean Minor Sauvignon Blanc… the tart crispness of this most refreshing wine always enhances any fish or shellfish you serve it with. It’s under $20 but drinks like a far more expensive white. Picpoul de Pinet is another fabulous French tarty girl from the Languedoc region in the south of France. The cool, moist winds of the Mediterranean blow

across the limestone plateaus of this area and give it a tantalizing minerality that screams, “Gimme shrimp!” You’ll also be thrilled with the price tag as it’s under $15. And the last choice for me is Joel Gott Chardonnay. It’s the perfect choice for any shrimp lover. I like that Joel’s white Chardonnay is unoaked. I feel it is the perfect antidote for the sometimes buttery mess that shrimp and lobster can sometimes get themselves into. But then again I’m an unoaked kind of guy, so it suits me just fine. If you crave oaky, buttery chardonnay, go buy one! And tell everyone they can kiss your shrimp grits! I put wine in this recipe that follows because I think it enhances all the other ingredients. But heck, I’d put wine on my cereal if I could, so you know where I stand. The best part of these skewered shrimp is how fast they can be prepared. Do not over marinate or overcook them. Again, remember the recipe calls for prawns, but we know jumbo shrimp is what we are using till some darn prawn swims the shell over here!

Skewered Citrus Garlic Prawns Ingredients Chipotle Mayonnaise: ◊ 1/2 cup olive oil ◊ 1 tablespoon dijon mustard ◊ 3 cloves garlic minced ◊ 1 lemon juiced ◊ 1 orange juiced ◊ 1 tsp. dried basil ◊ 2 tablespoons white wine ◊ 30 jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined Directions 1. In a glass dish, mix together the olive oil, mustard, garlic, lemon and orange juice, basil and white wine. 2. Add the prawns and stir to coat. 3. Cover and let marinate for 1/2 hour. 4. Heat an outdoor grill to high heat. 5. Thread prawns onto skewers. Grill for three minutes turning once until pink. *To Mex it up a little-substitute Jalapeño and limes for the lemon juice and orange juice. And instead of basil, cilantro. Add a tablespoon of Goya Sofrito. These recipes are great for an appetizer or main course. The french heat up to boiling the left over marinade and after it cools dip bread into it. Cheers!!

Falling for The Cliff By Celia Strong

And off we go to Napa. Let’s face it–any time any of us get to go to Napa is a good time. It’s beautiful, it’s fun (even if you’re working), it’s full of good restaurants and, of course, some great wines. Somehow, $50 in Napa for a bottle of wine doesn’t seem like as much as $50 here for a bottle. Must be something in the air out there. Or maybe they pump something into the airplane air vents so that when you land you’re ready. Whatever it is, we’re all ready for our next trip. Napa is a small city located at the southern end of Napa County. The word “napa” is from a Native American language that has been translated as “grizzly bear” (possibly why a bear is the California state animal), but it’s also translated as “house” and “motherland.” In prehistoric times, the valley was inhabited by Patwin and maybe Wappo Native American tribes. These tribes lived mostly on the floodplains and for food gathered acorns, nuts, earthworms, grasshoppers and California buckeye kernels that they ground to make bread. The maximum prehistoric population probably didn’t exceed 5,000. (That’s really a lot of nuts and worms when you think about it.) In 1776, when the east coast was fighting our Revolutionary War, the Spanish, coming up from Mexico, built a small fort just northwest of Napa. In the early nineteenth century, Russian settlers from Sonoma County let their cattle and sheep graze in Napa Valley. In 1841, a plaque was placed on the summit of Mount Saint Helena. The first Europeans to explore Napa came in 1823, and the first white settlers arrived in the early 1830’s. They found six different tribes, with six different dialects, living in the valley. Unfortunately, the settlers brought outside diseases with them and most of the natives died from a smallpox epidemic in 1838. More settlers came, including George Calvert Yount, who is thought to be the first Anglo-Saxon settler in Napa and, when he died in 1865 (Civil War time in the East and South) the town of Yountville was named after him. In 1859, the first commercial winery in the county was opened. The descendants of many of the first vineyard workers and owners stayed active in the business and today many of their names are still part of the wines and wineries we’re familiar with. When you visit Napa County, it’s some of this history at each winery that makes them so special. One of the best known AVAs in Napa County is the Stags Leap District, 2,700 acres located about six miles north of the city of Napa. This was the first appellation to receive AVA status, in 1989, because of its unique

soil characteristics–loam and clay sediments from the Napa River and volcanic soil deposits left over from the erosion of the Vaca Mountains. Like many Napa AVAs, Stags Leap is known for its Cabernets. In 1976, at the Judgement of Paris wine tasting, a 1973 Cab from this AVA won first place in the red wine category. Grapes were planted in the district as early as the 1870’s and the first winery there was founded in 1878. The first Cabernet grapes were planted in 1961, interestingly on the land that would become the winery that won the Paris competition. The name for Stags Leap comes from an old legend about a hunting party that lost a great stag because it leaped from peak to peak on the hills in this part of Napa. Stags Leap Cabernet wines are unique because they are sturdy yet delicate, strong but with finesse, powerful and still elegant and graceful. Blah blah. They are also not cheap. But, now, guess what! All this great history and our winery for this week located in Napa was established just 10 years ago. Yikes! But, for 10 years they have made great wines. Cliff Lede (pronounced LAY-dee) was born in Edmonton, Canada and grew up making “basement” wine with his mother. In his late 20’s he began hanging around a local wine shop. One of his early tastes was Ducru-Beaucaillou, a Bordeaux that he fell in love with and that started him collecting Bordeaux wines in 1982. After many trips to France, and one to Napa in 1997, Lede decided he had to have a piece of winemaking for himself. Being a runner and realizing he could run in shorts in February in Napa, the decision was made and he started looking for his opportunity. His search ended with a 60 acre property in the Stags Leap District in Napa. Established in 2002, the winery for Cliff Lede Vineyards was completed in 2005, all state-of-the-art with gravity flow for the juice crushed from the grapes, a berry-by-berry sorting system and conical tanks inspired by Chateau Latour in Bordeaux. By using one tank for each vineyard block, each lot of grapes is sure to become everything it can and should be, each at its own speed. The wines

are barrel aged in single layer of barrels so that each barrel can be reached as needed. Part of his 60 acres includes a valley floor vineyard called Twin Peaks Ranch. The soil of the ranch is varied and used with different clones, root stock varieties and is the base of their Cabernet Sauvignon program. The rest of the property is hillsides–steep, facing southwest, high exposure vineyards that reach from the highest part of Stags Leap AVA to the valley floor. And, yes Cliff Lede is known for its Cabernet wines. But, we’re in a heat wave this summer and we’re going to look at Cliff Lede’s Sauvignon Blanc. This grape is part of the same family as Cabernet, so of course it does well in the same growing conditions. The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc started with a really wet winter that kept the soil moist into spring. The vines responded with lots of leaves but a moderate quantity of berries. Cool temperatures from spring through to harvest made it one of coolest years in Napa wine history. This coolness slowed the berries’ development, delayed harvest by two or three weeks and yielded low sugar levels in many of the grapes. A portion of the Sauvignon Blanc used to make this wine comes from a vineyard in the southeastern hills of Napa that has silty impoverished soils, and its grapes have austerity and brightness that grapes from richer soils can’t. The fruit for this wine was all harvested by hand and arrived at the winery at dawn. Meticulous hand sorting lead some of the grapes to whole cluster, gentle pressing and some to sixteen hour skin contact before they were pressed. The wine was aged on its lees with no secondary, malolacitc, fermentation. All of this extra work makes the Cliff Lede an amazing Sauvignon Blanc. It has apple and Meyer lemon aromas with floral notes including peach blossoms. Then tropical notes come like pineapple and lychee nuts all with a mineral support. The wine is rich and long and luscious so all the extra steps and work pay off. And at about $25 a bottle it’s really a pretty good deal. But, you guessed it! We have a better deal for you. A special $19.99 price. I’ve already enjoyed my first couple of bottles, and I have another chilled and ready. Now it’s your turn. Visit Napa from your own house. Enjoy.

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol

AVMA Policy—take it or leave it Earlier this month, the executive board of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), encouraged by Pet Partners (formerly the Delta Society) and the Council on Public Health and Regulatory Veterinary Medicine (CPHRVM) released a proposed policy statement concerning the public health risk of feeding pets raw food diets. The statement as it stands is creating some serious flap in the dog community. Here is the policy, in short: • Avoid feeding inadequately treated animal-source protein to cats and dogs • Restrict cats’ and dogs’ access to carrion and animal carcasses (e.g. while hunting) • Provide fresh, clean, nutritionally balanced and complete commercially prepared or home-cooked food to cats and dogs, and dispose of uneaten food at least daily • Practice personal hygiene (e.g. hand washing) before and after feeding cats and dogs, providing treats, cleaning pet dishes, and disposing of uneaten food Of course, practicing good hygiene with our pets makes good sense no matter what you’re feeding your pet. Access to carcasses is not a major issue for most pet owners, I hope. Personally, I have never seen uneaten food when feeding a raw diet so that point is irrelevant to me. Given the topic of the policy, and its position, most attention will focus on the first statement: “Avoid feeding inadequately treated animalsource protein to cats and dogs”. Depending on how it is interpreted, this statement is at best unclear, and is not well supported by the evidence

provided in the policy statement. Given the wording it appears the AVMA is not familiar with sushi, sashimi, steak tartare or salad, for that matter. An alternative reading would permit raw meats and eggs that were “adequately treated” though what that means to the AVMA is not quite explained, either. The AVMA is most concerned that our pets, if fed raw food, purchased in our local grocery stores and prepared in our home kitchens will be crawling with pathogenic organisms, including Salmonella spp, Campylobacter spp, Clostridium spp, Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, and enterotoxigenic Staphylococcus aureus. They might, given the condition of food in America these days, but, wait a minute! Aren’t those the same creepycrawlies that are blamed for the last slew of processed kibble recalls? You betcha. Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 49 people in the United States and Canada had been infected with Salmonella Infantis after handling contaminated dry dog food produced by Diamond Pet Foods. So, it’s not raw foods that are the bad guys, necessarily. Let’s face it. Our dogs carry bacteria no matter what they are fed. Think of

all the things they do on a daily basis-eating dead things in the yard, drinking dirty puddle water, snacking in the garbage, or helpfully cleaning kitty’s bum. Preventing the transmission of pathogenic nasties, no matter where they come from, is a matter of common sense. Cook it/don’t cook it but keep things clean, handle proteins for the dog with the same care as for your human family and don’t kiss your dog on the lips. The AVMA would be a better steward to its member veterinarians and the public if it would examine and make policy statements about ALL sources of contaminants—raw food, canned food, freeze-dried food and processed dry food. Skipping over the kibbled elephant

in the room makes me wonder why all the fuss about fresh food. A blanket ban of raw no matter how prepared and handled is unwarranted by its own scientific evidence. Plus, veterinarians and the public need the freedom to keep their options open. The policy statement is misleading. Nowhere in the statement does the AVMA attack the nutritional merits of raw diets. It merely reminds owners that raw meat must be handled with care. Well, we knew that.
