Beaufort EMS saving lives with new device With the capabilities of new technology along with the expertise of Beaufort County EMTs, the team is saving lives across the area. The tool is called the Lucas 2, a device designed to give chest compressions to someone having a heart attack. For the last eight months, Beaufort EMTs have used this tool to help save close to 50 lives, that’s more than one life a week. When a cardiac arrest call goes out, minutes matter and can make the difference between life and death. The steady supply of oxygen to the heart and brain is necessary, making chest compressions critical. But those compressions manually can be difficult and tiring, and impossible in certain situations. “There are times we are walking down narrow hallways or down stairs when

The Lucas 2 gives chest compressions.

we physically can’t do compressions. The American Heart Association says compressions shouldn’t stop for more than 10 seconds, and with the Lucas 2, those compressions don’t stop,” according to Donna Ownby, Director of Beaufort County EMS. The county has only one of these $12,500 vital machines. But by using grant money, a second Lucas 2 has been purchased and should be here by the end of the month.

commentary straight talk with the mayor

Running for re-election, against myself By Billy Keyserling

At 12:30 last Wednesday afternoon, I learned — as the deadline for filing for Mayor passed — that no one will be on the ballot running against me. Gearing up and ready to run, I had a funny feeling. How am I going to run for reelection if there is no opponent? You see, being mayor is not about Billy Keyserling. Rather, it is about making our “best hometown in the world” even better. It’s about communicating more clearly, as well as listening and learning to work well together toward shared goals. It’s about having the confidence to consider new ideas and opportunities even though we may not fully understand the consequences. It’s about achieving success, admitting when something does not go the way we thought it would, acknowledging so and making it right. Being mayor is about being accessible to Beaufort residents — those who

encounter problems with government plus those who need help how we can build on our history and natural beauty without destroying all we have inherited. In all cases, we must continuously be aware that we are merely custodians of the city we love for just a relatively short span within the 300-year timeline of our community. I had looked forward to campaigning because I learned long ago that elections are the people’s best opportunity to hold you accountable for what you promised, and measure how they think you have done. People generally think more about public life when a local

campaign is under way and are more engaged in civic matters. So even though I have no “official” opponent, between now and election day I am going to campaign anyway in order to be a part of the process of listening, learning and gauging how am I am representing you as mayor of Beaufort. In this case, I am going to take a page from a successful big city mayor who told the city’s voters when he had no election opponent, “I’ve never been one to sit out an election and, while I am grateful for what some of my friends have said is voter confidence in my public service, I will be engaged and available as if I had a serious opponent.” I thank the people of Beaufort for the chance to serve another term. You’ll be seeing a lot me at campaign events this fall — whether they be Republican, Democrat or non-partisan. As Michelangelo said at age 91, “I am still learning.”

Words matter when defining sexual assault A response to Representative Akin’s statement on rape and pregnancy By Shauw Chin Capps

“Sticks and stones will break my bones but words can never hurt me.” This common phrase could not be further from the truth given the outrage behind remarks made by Representative Todd Akin from Missouri. Last weekend he said that pregnancy as a result of rape is rare because: “If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” As the executive director of Hope Haven of the Lowcountry, our local rape crisis and children’s advocacy center, I feel compelled to respond, not from a political viewpoint, but from the perspective of sexual assault victims everywhere who are often voiceless and faceless. Representative Akin’s statement was not a glib remark but a specific statement clearly indicating his lack of knowledge on the issue of rape. According to the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (August 1996), the national rape-related pregnancy rate is 5% per rape among victims of reproductive age (aged 12 to 45); among adult women an estimated 32,101 pregnancies result from rape each year. Among 34 rape-related pregnancies, the majority occurred among adolescents and resulted from assault by a known, often related perpetrator. A more recent research

(2003) published in the “Journal of Human Nature” by Jonathan A. Gottschall and Tiffani A. Gottschall, two professors at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y., found that a single act of rape was more than twice as likely to result in pregnancy than an act of consensual sex. Unfortunately, women do not have the kind of super powers indicated by Rep. Akin where we can will our ovaries to shut when we are raped. Neither is there such a thing as a rape sperm versus a love sperm. There is the implication in his ignorant statement that somehow, women’s bodies are responsible for being able to tell the difference between different types of sperms and if somehow a woman gets pregnant as a result of rape, then it must not be rape. The choice of the word “legitimate” to talk about rape suggests that there is such a thing as “illegitimate” rape. This choice of word provides us with a picture of the victim-blaming culture that still surrounds the crime of sexual assault. The underlying assumption of the statement is that women and their experiences are not to be trusted. Those who have experienced rape do not get to define rape, but must succumb to some higher authority to define if the horror of what was experienced was actually legitimate.

Research has shown that false reporting of sexual assault is not any higher compared to false reporting of other types of crimes. I wonder if Representative Akin understands that his statement delegitimizes and belittles the utter horror, violation, desecration that rape victims experience. I wonder if he knows that sexual assault remains the most under reported crime, based on FBI statistics. I wonder if he understands that the main reason victims do not report is because they fear they will not be believed. I have walked alongside rape victims young and old for more than 15 years. I have not come across any victims who defined the horror of their experience any other way than being violated in the most personal way. Regardless of the circumstances that the rape occurred, rape is a violent crime. Rape is a complete violation of a person’s dignity and being. While Rep. Akin has apologized for having misspoken, it is tragic that those words were thought of and spoken in the first place. Unfortunately, the hurt, shame and guilt felt by rape victims across the nation as they heard those words cannot be easily erased by a single apology. Executive Director of Hope Haven of the Lowcountry Shauw Chin Capps can be reached at www.hopehavenlc.org or by calling 843-524-2256.

New program focuses on military workforce The Lowcountry Economic Alliance, the city of Beaufort and TWEAC (Transitional Workforce Educational Assistance Collaborative) today announced the launch of a military workforce development program. “We are very pleased to see the work of so many come to fruition today as we officially launch this program. One of our greatest community assets is the military and today we are cultivating exiting Marines and Sailors as we plan our jobs future,” said Mayor Billy Keyserling. “They bring great skills and discipline to the workplace, many want to stay in the area when they leave the service and we know this workforce

asset will help us recruit more diverse and better jobs to the area.” Over the last year, the city of Beaufort has been meeting with military, industry, educational and community partners to create a customized workforce model to assist exiting military personnel to transition into the private sector. The group’s analysis resulted in the creation of the nonprofit organization Transitional Workforce Educational Assistance Collaborative, or TWEAC. “The launch of this program could not be coming at a better time for exiting military personnel. There are record numbers of veterans unemployed and we see TWEAC as a tremendous resource

for veterans, exiting military personnel, and businesses looking for top-notch workers,” said retired United States Marine Corps Lieutenant General Garry Parks, chairman of TWEAC. The nonprofit is being financially supported by the Lowcountry Economic Alliance as the program is kicked off in the pilot phase of development. During the pilot phase, current data will be collected on the regional military inventory available and the skills they possess that are so valuable to the private sector. Translating the military skills into private sector terminology is critical to completing the mission of matching veteran skills with

Movin’ up the ranks

business needs. David Tigges, Chairman of the Lowcountry Economic Alliance, stated, “The business community is beginning to invest again and we are seeing good prospect traffic in the region. But, it is a very competitive market and our ability as a region to set ourselves apart from the competition. This veterans workforce pool is a superior group of Marines that have tremendous skills, discipline and reliability. This workforce pool sets us apart.” For more information, contact the Lowcountry Economic Alliance at 843-705-0830 or kstatler@ lowcountryalliance.org.

news briefs Traffic disruptions on Joe Frazier Road

Motorists driving through the traffic circle at the intersections of Joe Frazier Road, Pine Grove Road and Morrall Drive need to be aware of some traffic delays. J.R. Wilson Construction will be paving and pouring concrete near and around the circle. This work is expected to last through the end of the month. The circle was opened to traffic June 21 but the work being done now will complete the project. These improvements will disrupt normal traffic flow so it is important for those who will be driving in the area to plan a few extra minutes to get to their destination. If you have any questions, please call Sam Hesley at J.R. Wilson Construction Company at 803-943-3311.

At a ceremony on Wednesday, August 1, The Beaufort County Sheriff ’s Office recognized personnel for their achievement and dedication. The following sheriff ’s deputies have been promoted, (pictured above, from left): William Murphy, Corporal; Mitchell Archbell, Patrolman First Class; Bryan Jacoby, Lance Corporal; Owen Lamb, Corporal; Jennifer Worrell, Corporal; Jacob Scott, Patrolman First Class; and Sheriff P.J. Tanner.

Beaufort, hospital team up for sidewalk, roadway improvements Sidewalk improvements, access to the upcoming walking trail and landscaping are part of a joint effort by the city of Beaufort and Beaufort Memorial Hospital to improve the Allison and Ribaut roads intersection. “We are pushing safety and pedestrian access throughout the city, but this partnership is especially important because of its key location to the medical campus,” Beaufort Mayor Billy Keyserling said. In July, the Beaufort Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees unanimously approved inclusion of a 10-foot-wide, multi-use path and sidewalk and a seven-foot-wide landscaped area on Allison Road adjacent to hospital property.

The landscaped pathways will connect the hospital’s new Life-Fit and Administration building now under construction, with the main hospital campus and with the soonto-be-built rail trail. “We are pleased at the ability to partner with the city of Beaufort to connect the Beaufort Memorial Hospital campus to the new rail trail pathway and to work on making this intersection safer and more attractive,” said Jerry Schulze, chairman of the hospital’s Board of Trustees. The Allison Road project accommodates most of the suggestions of the recently completed Sector 2 and 3 planning charrettes for recreational access undertaken by

the city and community as part of the Beaufort Civic Master Planning process. “We are delighted that the city and the hospital have agreed on how to enhance this key intersection and connect more people to the rail trail, both very important initiatives of the Civic Master Plan,” said Jon Verity, chairman of the Beaufort Redevelopment Commission. Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail and the PATH Foundation out of Atlanta were also involved in the discussions with the hospital regarding opportunities to increase or enhance public access to the trail. View the proposed plans at www. bmhsc.org or www.cityofbeaufort.org.

Steel Bridge Boat Landing under repairs

Through Friday, August 24, the Courtesy Dock and one lane of the launch ramp at the Steel Bridge Boat Landing in Beaufort County will be closed. Crews will be repairing the floating dock and will be pouring concrete under part of the walkway. Over the years, mud, debris and water flow have damaged the floating dock making it more difficult for boaters to use. The Steel Bridge Boat Landing is located on U.S. 17, passed Gardens Corner along the Combahee River. Dozens use this landing each week for business and recreational purposes.

Hospital lobby will be temporarily closed

Due to construction in the Emergency Department, Beaufort Memorial will temporarily close the Main Lobby. It will reopen on Monday, Aug. 27. Please access the hospital through the Surgery/Birthing Center entrance. Extra signs will be posted to direct you to the main elevators. Do not use the temporary Emergency Room entrance for access to the rest of the hospital, use the Surgery/Birthing Center entrance.

Picking up good vibrations By Martha O’Regan

The Beach Boys had it figured out when they shared this song with us so long ago! Let’s bring it into our life today. Let’s say you’ve been taking Dr. Oz’s wisdom to heart and wake up one day and decide, “today is the day I take control of my health,” and you embark on your new exercise program and commit to eating organic fruits and veggies, and drinking your eight glasses of water. Hooray for you! But, by the end of the day, you are exhausted, crabby and bloated and decide it is easier to go back to your old ways. What gives? Why isn’t getting healthy as easy as it looks or sounds? Let’s look at it from a vibrational perspective. Remembering that everything is energy, begin looking at specific areas through a vibrational scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest, most expanded vibration or frequency. Up until now, your nutrition has come from fast foods, fake sugars, and “enriched” cereals and bread — basically all “dead” foods, with a frequency of 1-3. And, let’s say your health is hanging around a 4 or 5 — you get tired easily, don’t sleep well, have poor digestion and your joints are cranky, etc. Then you decide it’s time for a change and commit to becoming an organic vegan and eat only “live” foods, all which have a frequency of 8-10. Tilt, Tilt, Tilt!

Live Well ... Have Fun

Offering a unique approach to your active health care needs using a variety of healing modalities, nutritional and wellness coaching to empower you to a new state of health and well-being. 73 Sams Point Road, 524-2554.

The body can’t sustain the drastic shift and you’ve just set yourself up for discomfort and frustration and, in some cases, an increase in the symptoms you were trying to eliminate. Same goes with exercise, hydration, goal setting, etc. If what you are attempting to do is too stimulating to the system, you will go through a period of suffering and will often times just quit. Don’t give up, but rather try a different and slower approach, based on your current vibrational frequency. Determining your starting point is probably the most important stage in any health journey. From there, knowing your goal, allows you to develop a game plan to set you up for success, rather than failure. So, where are you? Sit with yourself and feel how you feel in your body and give it a frequency number.

Do you feel sluggish, is your digestion poor, are your joints cranky, are you feeling un-rested when you get up in the morning, are you depressed or anxious? Now, where do you want to be? Write out your picture of perfect health, start to “dream the dream” in the energy that it is already occurring for you. For example, “I am a vibrantly healthy size (blank) who can play with my children with freedom of movement and joy.” Give that a frequency number. We now have a continuum to move along. Let’s say you are living around a 3-4 and desire to be a 8-10, then your next step is to improve areas in your daily lifestyle that will bring you to a 5-6 and commit to staying there for several weeks to a month before making the next change. It’s different for everyone but it might mean eliminating the diet beverages and fake sugars, or just getting a 30 minute walk in three times a week, or drinking four glasses of water instead of 1 per day. It doesn’t really matter where you start, the important thing is to start and stay committed to that change until it becomes your new good habit, then you can move up the scale from there. So, pick up those good vibrations slowly and consistently and enjoy your vibrant health journey! Live Well ... Have Fun!

Yoga Works to Bring International Change On Sunday, September 9, Beaufort’s Dancing Dogs Yoga Owner and Africa Yoga Project Ambassador Shelley Lowther, along with several local and regional yoga studios, are joining forces to raise $10,000 for the Africa Yoga Project, a nonprofit that empowers individuals to create transformation within their communities through the power of yoga.

Five critical times to review your insurance By State Farm™

Insurance protects you, your family and your home from the unexpected, but it can only do its job if the coverage is up-to-date. Use the occasion of a major life event to make sure your insurance is still suited to your needs. Review your insurance annually or during key life changes such as these: 1. Your family configuration changes. If you’re marrying, expecting a baby, or adopting a child, you’ll want to protect your growing family with adequate life insurance and disability income insurance. Losing a family member through death or divorce should also prompt a policy review. Remember to change the beneficiary designations on your existing policies as needed. 2. Your children grow up. When you have a new teen driver, adequate auto insurance is a must. Your State Farm® agent can tell you about discounts that may be available. If your student is leaving for college or has recently graduated, it’s a good time to consider personal property, liability and renters insurance for the new living arrangements. 3. You’re planning a move. Whenever your address changes, reassess your homeowners insurance to make sure the new property is adequately protected.

An impending move is also a good opportunity to update your home inventory — whether you’re adding items such as new furniture or scaling back for a move to a smaller home. Even if your address doesn’t change, review your coverage when you add rooms to or significantly renovate your current home. 4. You’re starting a business. Whether you’re going to rent office space or open a home-based business, include a thorough insurance review in your start-up plans. Depending on the size of your operation, you may have to consider property and liability, commercial vehicle and workers’ compensation coverage, as well as a health care plan for employees. If you’re a sole proprietor working from home, be sure to review your homeowners plan to see that your business and equipment are fully covered. 5. You need health insurance options. In today’s rapidly changing health care environment, protecting your family’s health can be a challenge. If your current plan is up for renewal or if you’ve been downsized and need brand-new coverage, take the time to compare plan features against your family’s current or anticipated needs.

529: Education for your student, tax breaks for you With the pace of higher-education costs rising faster than the general Consumer Price Index, it’s easy to understand why saving enough money to fund a child’s college education has become a financial challenge for many parents and grandparents. So whether college for your child or grandchild is years away or right around the corner, put time on your side — consider the benefits of contributing to a 529 plan for a student in your family. The student can use 529 plan account balances at any participating accredited postsecondary school in the United States or certain schools abroad for tuition, room and board, books, equipment, and supplies. Qualified expenses also include computer technology, related equipment and Internet-access costs. As the owner, you retain control of the assets and can change beneficiaries within the designated student’s family at any time without penalty. A qualified family member generally includes siblings, descendants, ancestors, aunts, uncles and first cousins. Other key advantages of these plans include: • Federal-income-tax-free qualified distributions. The student may be able to take qualified distributions federalincome-tax-free. • No income limitations for participation. There is no income limit for contributing to a 529 plan, which is a benefit for higher-income families. • Substantial contribution amounts. A single person can contribute up to $65,000 in one year per beneficiary; a married couple can contribute up to $130,000 in one year per beneficiary with no gift-tax consequences. Such a contribution will be considered a fiveyear accelerated annual-exclusion gift, so no additional gifts can be made for that beneficiary for the next four years without incurring gift-tax implications unless the annual exclusion gift increases. • Significant estate-planning benefits. The gift amount and subsequent appreciation, however, are removed from your taxable estate. (A portion of the contribution amount may be included in

the donor’s taxableestate calculation if the donor should die within the fiveyear period.) Keep in mind that 529 plan investment balances Katie may affect eligibility Phifer for financial aid: • If a parent owns the 529 account, up to 5.64% of the value is included in Expected Family Contribution as a parental asset. Any 529 accounts owned by a dependent student, or by a custodian for the student, are reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as a parental asset. Any qualified withdrawals from these accounts are not included as income to the student. • If a 529 account is owned by a grandparent (or someone other than a parent or the student), the value of the 529 plan is not reportable as an asset on the FAFSA. However, any distributions from these third-party accounts are considered financial support to the student and are reportable on the following year’s FAFSA as student income. Student income is assessed at the student’s rate of 50%. An investment in a 529 plan will fluctuate such that the shares when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original investment. There are no guarantees that an investment in a 529 plan will cover higher-education expenses. Investors should consult the plan’s offering document for the fees and expenses associated with that plan. You should consider a 529 plan’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. As Wells Fargo Advisors does not render tax advice, you should consult with a tax advisor before making any investment decisions which could have tax consequences.

ABLE releases annual ornament ABLE Foundation, the Disabilities Foundation for Beaufort County, announced the annual ornament is now available. The ornament is the fourth in a commemorative series featuring favorite Lowcountry scenes. The 2012 ornament features a Heron. The ornament, which can also be used as a medallion, was created locally and was commissioned from Buf ’s in Beaufort. The annual ornaments have been a traditional fundraiser for the ABLE Foundation. The nonprofit foundation supports services and programs assisting individuals with special needs. ABLE’s efforts in the recent past and this year have been to fund a summer camp, called Camp Treasure Chest, for children with special needs. Children with needs such as developmental delays, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, genetic disorders and autism may require additional and

special services and trained staff and accommodations, not usually available at regular summer camps. In the absence of the Camp Treasure Chest, these special needs children would likely not have a summer camp experience. Funds from the state for summer services have been virtually eliminated and the camp is almost solely supported through fundraising and grants. All proceeds from the sale of ornaments go to support Camp Treasure Chest. Ornaments are available at several locations in the greater Beaufort area.

These include: • Smiles by Wyles Dentistry, 134 Lady’s Island Drive, Lady’s Island • Budget Print, 510 Carteret Street, Beaufort • Sea Eagle Market, 2242 Boundary Street, Beaufort • Green Herring Gallery, 1001 Bay Street, Beaufort • Harbor Island Beach and Racquet Club, Harbor Island • New Image Salon, 1615 Paris Ave., Port Royal • Offices of Disabilities and Special Needs Dept, 100 Clear Water Way, Beaufort. A limited number of prior years’ ornaments are available from the Office of Disabilities and Special Needs. This year, framing for ornaments is available through the Green Herring Gallery. A portion of the proceeds from framing will also go towards Camp Treasure Chest. To order an ornament or for more information, call ABLE at 255-6300.

Wise in Silence: The Splendor of our Trees Great Gardens Cafe is pleased to exhibit “Wise in Silence — The Splendor of our Trees,” a photography exhibit by Sandy Dimke. Celtic poet Altiem MacDunlmor wrote, “Trees are beautiful in their peace, They are wise in the Silence.” Attracted by the stately grace of trees, Sandy has chosen five distinctive photographs, printed on canvas, to illustrate the grandeur that surrounds us. From the centuries-old Angel Oak on nearby Johns Island, to the Avenue of Oaks planted in 1820 at Tomotley Plantation in Sheldon, all but one of the photographs was taken in

“Spreading her Angel Wings” by Sandy Dimke.

the Lowcountry. Sandy is an awardwinning photographer who has lived in Beaufort for 11 years. She exhibits widely though our area and was a featured artist at Beaufort Art Association

in 2011. Her exhibit and book, “Hands Across Beaufort” celebrated Beaufort’s history. She and her husband, Russ, live at Bull Point Plantation in Gardens Corner. Patrick Reber, owner

and chef at Great Gardens, is excited to host the exhibit. His wife, the gardener of the family, manages the nursery that is adjacent to the cafe and they both thought that the subject matter would be a great fit and bring the beauty of the outside, in. Trees are important to the Rebers. They chose this location for their restaurant so patrons on their dining deck can enjoy sweeping views of Albergotti Creek framed by live oaks. Great Gardens Cafe is at 3669 Trask Parkway. For more information, contact Great Gardens at 521-1900 or Sandy Dimke at 263-4340.

A patriotic exhibit to make the election season more lovely In September and October, the gallery at ARTworks will be filled with the high-contrast, highly classical yet oh-so contemporary work of Hilton Head artist Candace Lovely. Her show is called “God Bless America from Candace Lovely — A patriotic show to make the election season more lovely.” And art is exactly what this grueling campaign season needs. Candace Lovely’s style is realistic and refined. Her most recent accolade is the 2012 Prestigious American Women in the Arts Recognition Award of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Her unique and powerful but non-confrontational approach to painting has captured on canvas a White House Portrait of First Lady Barbara Bush, Arlington Street Showers, The Flag depicted as a Good and Plenty hug, and President Obama in a pickup game of basketball with friends. Her palette is as vibrant as her eye for the brilliant. Meet the fantastic artist at the opening reception on Friday,

Candace Lovely is decorating the lounge at ARTworks with her neonsketched bar scenes, including President Obama’s State of the Union address on the screen above the backlit bottles.

September 7, from 6-8 p.m. at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center, 2127 Boundary St. For details, visit www.ArtWorksInBeaufort.org or call 843-379-2787.

Velvet Guitar Classical guitarist Jeffrey Bianchi will give a one hour concert on Friday, Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m., in the Black Box Theater at ARTworks. It will be the final performance of his summer concert series, which has included engagements in Idaho, Colorado, Wyoming and Georgia. Jeffrey says, “I am very excited to make my way back out to the South Carolina. I have always enjoyed visiting the state and this will be an enjoyable way to end the concert season.” As a native of Williamson, N.Y., Jeffrey began performing at weddings and cafes while still in his teens. As his skills grew, he gave full concerts throughout Western New York. His

concerts continued with his move to Atlanta in the summer of 2002. As an electric guitarist, Jeffrey toured much of North America; playing clubs and dance halls. When Jeffrey resumed his solo performances in 2009, the large, enthusiastic crowds gave him a goal to take his music to a much wider audience. In 2010, Jeffrey undertook his first cross country solo tour. The success of this tour enabled him to expand his solo career to a national level. Tickets are $17 adults, $12 groups of 10 or more and $7 for children, online and at the door. Visit www. artworksinbeaufort.org or more about Jeffrey at www.velvetguitar.com.

THE INDIE FILM CORNER By Dennis Tavernetti

“360” from The World Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts on Friday, August 29 at 6:30 p.m. Synopsis: “360” is a dramatic thriller that dazzlingly weaves together the stories of an array of people from disparate social backgrounds through their intersecting relationships. It combines a modern and dynamic roundelay of stories into one, linking characters from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and deeply moving tale of love in the 21st century. It starts in Vienna, and the film beautifully weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix and back to Vienna. Ratings & Reviews: Just released so ratings are early. Internet rating sites, IMDb: 6.5; Rotten Tomatoes: Critics: 19/Audience: 36. Less than good marks. Critics: NPR: “... visual flair to burn”; Entertainment Weekly: “deftly pleasing ...” Previewer Comments: This just-released film is a drama with a very high powered cast; but to most viewers, it never reaches its potential. It follows the stories of couples and their sexual encounters around the globe. What goes around comes around is the theme in an ever changing round of human relationships that are empty and not fulfilling, nor lasting. We end up hoping for better outcomes, only to be denied them, at the last second or two, as the characters seem to always to take the wrong Merry can help. path; or perhaps it is fate. The film reminds us about how Maids much better our own relationship are, even if they are not perfect!

Critics: New York Times: “Marvel at the ornate frame, mock the vulgarity of the images if you want, but let’s not kid ourselves ... it is also a mirror”; Entertainment Weekly: “... succulently entertaining.” Previewer Comments: This film is one of those we should all go to see to keep our own tendencies for “success,” trappings and greed in check. It is truly bigger than life, but yet it is their dream and their life, cut short by the housing bubble. You may likely have disdain for this family who are in the top 1 percent of U.S. wealth, yet somehow also feel badly that their dream did not turn out; perhaps because we all dream for things of gold and perfection, instead of what we should be dreaming for — health, love and true happiness for others. Rated: PG. Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5.

Vivi Verity: Beaufort’s sweetest new mini mogul By Lanier Laney

Owner (and baker) of Sweet Vivi’s, Ohio native Vivi Verity got the first “taste” of her future in her grandmother’s kitchen. Vivi says, “My grandmother’s bottomless cookie jar of oatmeal raisin cookies probably got this whole thing started! It gave me a life long love of cookies.” Today Vivi spends her days baking cookies, whoopie pies, cupcakes and cakes under the Sweet Vivi logo with her main client Lowcountry Produce but she also does a lot of special orders, birthday parties, weddings and baby showers. “I love providing for Lowcountry Produce and I also love getting a challenge from a personal order, like when someone calls in with a request that I get to research and create,” said Vivi. “I also love my customers, they pump me up when they write nice things on my Facebook page!” Adding, “I’m honestly surprised at how popular my goods are, I mean, I like them but am so honored and excited that other people do too. There’s nothing better than hearing ‘I looooove your red velvet cupcake.’ Or ‘I need a Sweet Vivi cookie!’ Or even just seeing a kid’s face light up while looking in the case. I feel I’m lucky that I turned something that I love to do into a business. Doesn’t always work out

Vivi Verity is owner of Sweet Vivi’s

that way. I have had a lot of help from my parents and friends in many capacities and I thank them VERY much!” After attending the School of Culinary Arts in Atlanta, Vivi decided to launch her business two and a half years ago, first at the Farmers Market and City Java with a simple philosophy: “To make fresh, old fashioned, homemade, mostly all natural, just yummy baked goods,” she said. Apparently her approach worked and sales took off immediately as everyone seemed to love her baked goods, including the vendor next to her at the Farmers Market. Vivi said, “It was at the Habersham Farmers Market where I met Dwight Garrett Sr. We sold our items next to each other and became friends. (Actually I let him borrow my tablecloth because his table

was so bare, then he got fresh blackberry juice all over it and it was ruined! Ha, ha!) He kept telling me about how his son Noel was going to open a store in downtown Beaufort and he would love to carry my goods. I never believed that the samples ever made it to Noel because Dwight had quite the sweet tooth! Turns out they did and that’s why I’m lucky enough to be in Lowcountry Produce. I deliver freshly made cupcakes everyday there, except Sunday. Usually I try to deliver at least four flavors at a time. I deliver cookies when they need them, and whoopie pies when I have time to bake them. Before LCP, it really would be on an order by order basis. I will be delivering Red Velvet Cupcakes on Wednesdays and Fridays because they seem to be very popular! Mini cupcakes are my best sellers, of course, as well as my iced molasses cookies” In the fall, Vivi will be expanding to Hilton Head when a new Lowcountry Produce opens in Sea Pines. Vivi fell in love with Beaufort as a young girl when she visited her grandparents Bill and Peggy Verity, who retired here in the 80’s. Says Vivi, “I love the beauty of Beaufort, first and foremost. The river, the marsh, the Spanish moss, the salty air ... I make sure I enjoy it every day and don’t take

it for granted. I love that I can get on the water whenever I want too. I love how easy it is to live here, easy to get anywhere, park anywhere, do anything. I love the history but also love that any Beaufortonian can be a part of improving our great town. There are so many possibilities to make a difference.” Vivi’s family has put those words into action. Her dad, Jon Verity, is Chairman of the Redevelopment Commission for the City of Beaufort. Her mom Vicki is on the board of Friends of Caroline Hospice and the Coastal Conservation League. And Vivi also volunteers at Friends of Caroline Hospice. I asked Vivi if there was any unusual thing she had done or hobby that people would not expect. “I can do a headstand on a paddle board in the river!” she said. “But in Beaufort, that’s actually not that impressive since there are a lot of paddle boarders.” So whether baking a new batch of delicious cupcakes or standing on her head in the middle of the river, this mini mogul’s accomplishments are always amazing! (Or amazingly tasty!) To see all the different flavors of cookies and cupcakes she bakes, check out her website at www.sweetvivis.com.

A focus on students, teachers and educational events in northern Beaufort County

ACT scores show little change for seniors Seniors in Beaufort County’s Class of 2012 posted scores on the ACT college entrance exam that matched the state average and changed little from the previous year. The district’s overall average score for 2012 seniors was 19.9, down two-tenths of a point from last year. Statewide, average scores for public school students remained unchanged at 19.9. Only 382 Beaufort County School District 2012 seniors chose to take the ACT, up from 306 three years ago but still less than half the total that take the SAT. Colleges generally accept scores on either test when considering applications for admission.

Since 2009, the number of ACT testtakers in Beaufort County has increased by 25 percent. ACT officials say that a growth in student participation is usually accompanied by a downturn in scores, yet Beaufort County scores have changed little in the past three years. Battery Creek High seniors’ average ACT score for 2012 was 18.2, up from 16.9 last year. Beaufort High’s average was 20.2, down slightly from 20.3. Bluffton High’s average was 21.4, up from 20.1. Hilton Head Island High’s average was 22.2, down slightly from 22.6. Whale Branch Early College High’s initial class of seniors had an average score of 16.3.

Superintendent Valerie Truesdale said the district’s high school principals would be taking a closer look at Bluffton High’s initiative to improve students’ writing skills. Truesdale also reinforced the need for high school students to take the core courses recommended by both the ACT and SAT. Those courses include four years of English; three or more years of mathematics, including algebra I and II and geometry; three or more years of social studies, including American history and government and world history; and three or more years of natural sciences, such as general, physical and earth science, biology, chemistry and

physics. The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam designed to measure the academic skills that are taught in schools and deemed important for success in first-year college courses. The SAT is an implied learning test that measures how students think based on their experiences both in and out of the classroom setting. Truesdale said that Beaufort County students are encouraged to take “practice” SAT and ACT tests — the PSAT for the SAT and the PLAN for the ACT — to see which of the two college entrance exams is a better reflection of their knowledge and academic skills.

Teacher of the Year finalists named at rally The Beaufort County School District named five finalists for its 2012-13 District Teacher of the Year recognition. Current Teacher of the Year Christine Gray from Hilton Head Island High School announced the five finalists’ names to the cheers of more than 2,000 school staff gathered at Bluffton High School for the district’s annual back-toschool rally. The 2012-13 finalists are Amy Fallon, who teaches math and science at Port Royal Elementary School; Hollis Lambert, a seventh-grade English Language Arts teacher at Beaufort Middle School; Erin Reichert, a social studies teacher at Bluffton High School; Angela Stewart, an eighth-grade science teacher at Whale Branch Middle School; and Jennifer Weitekamper, a social studies teacher at Hilton Head Island High School. Superintendent Valerie Truesdale said the purpose of the annual back-to-school rally is to bring all of the district’s school staff together in one place, celebrate key achievements from the previous year and become energized as a district-wide team to kick off the new school year that begins next Monday, August 20. Truesdale also announced a new partnership between the district and Hargray Communications. Truesdale said Hargray had “wrapped” a number of its service vans with photos of Beaufort County students, developed a series of magazine advertisements celebrating the achievements of district schools and students, and announced plans to air television commercials about district students and schools on Hargray

cable TV channels. “Hargray is a proud partner in learning with the Beaufort County School District, and we are thrilled to be able to share that commitment with the community this school year,” said Hargray Marketing Director Eddie Andrews.” The keynote speaker for this year’s back-to-school rally, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Clifton Taulbert, stressed the importance of educators pulling together as a community of professionals on behalf of children. Taulbert said he grew up in poverty in the Mississippi Delta, and he credited “Ordinary People” with putting him on the path to success. “Thinking that others matter is at the heart of ensuring success for them,” Taulbert said. “This is where we start. I should have failed, but ordinary people stepped up. I mattered to them. And because other people thought I mattered, I eventually began to think that I mattered, too.” Becoming District Teacher of the Year is a three-step process that begins when school-level teachers of the year are selected in April. Those wishing to compete for District Teacher of the Year submit detailed applications by the end of July. In the second step, a selection committee consisting of parents, former educators and community leaders from across Beaufort County reviews the applications and rates them using a numerical scoring system. The five highest-scoring applicants are named as finalists. The panel selects the District Teacher of the Year in September, and that person represents Beaufort County in the South Carolina State Teacher of the Year program.

history with holly: looking back lovingly By Margaret Harvey Thompson

Even today as I drive into Beaufort, I roll my windows down to smell the marsh, the mud, the salt water — I love this place! The place of my fondest memories is our neighborhood “Hundred Pines.” As the fourth of five kids, I remember our home as a center of activity, but I think of our whole neighborhood as our home. Almost every door was open to us, there were few fences, each family had at least three kids to add to the pack and at least one dog. “Honey” and “Sambo” were as much a part of the pack as Margaret and Carroll. The bike ride down Hermitage Road seemed long and the hill up to Fripp Street steep as we daily traveled on our one gear bikes (usually hand-me-downs) from Western Auto. After checking around to see what each house had to offer for lunch, we would also check the water level in the creek to plan our day. We might crab with chicken necks on cotton string as the tide was rising, awaiting the summer high tide which was perfect for jumping off our small rickety dock into the creek. Bogging in the plough mud was best at dead-low tide, and we could either build slip-and-slides or trudge to the mouth of

Beaufort Then & Now This moment in Beaufort’s history is an excerpt from the book “Beaufort ... Then and Now,” an anthology of memories compiled by Holly Kearns Lambert. Copies of this book may be purchased at Beaufort Book Store. To contribute your memory, contact Holly at lowcountrymemories@hotmail.com or beaufortmemories@gmail.com.

the creek to cast-net for shrimp. As the temperature changed in the fall we would look forward to high tide when we could take the wooden boat to Rabbit Island to camp out, and the low tide brought space to explore the edges and banks where we built intricate forts. A bike ride into town involved cutting down North Street, stopping by Pruitt’s store for some penny candy from the baldheaded man who never smiled, carefully cutting across “dangerous” Ribaut Road, and zipping past Beaufort Jr. High School, the court house, the huge old houses and oaks on Bay Street until we arrived breathless at our one big store, Edwards, on the corner of Bay and Charles streets. Sometimes I would have to meet Mom at Dr. Hutchinson’s, the eye doctor, or Dr. Lipsitz, the dentist. Then I followed her

into Schein’s, where I was able to head straight to the back and buy a bottled coke for a dime, or into Wallace and Danner, where I kept my hands off the tiny sock hangers that looked perfect for doll clothes. I actually liked Lipsitz’s because of Lippy the myna bird who loudly called out “Hello” as I entered and hurried back to the elevated kids’ seats to try on shoes. After finishing errands with Mom, I hopped back on my bike, rode the back way by the Piggly Wiggly, past Dad’s office, around First Presbyterian Church, with a final stop at Koth’s before heading home. One of my favorite days was Sunday. After a quick breakfast while fighting over the funnies (comics), hurrying to get to church on time and seeing so many friends, life would slow down as we crossed Boundary Street to the Point for lunch with my grandparents. As we

drove past the Castle and whispered ghost stories, then rounded the corner under the canopy of oaks, we would be reminded of our table manners as we walked up the stairs of Ma-T and Pop’s grand house. High tides at their house meant sitting on the porch enjoying the Beaufort River, counting the number of times the bridge had to open, drinking apple juice with crushed ice and playing gin rummy. After a delicious lunch around a huge table with fine china and silver, we would ask to be excused to go outside and play “acorn man” under the Angel Oak or “here comes the bride” through the flower-lined paths. My memories of growing up in Beaufort are happy, bright and free. Everywhere I went someone would connect me to my family or even to my neighborhood. The place seemed to love me and I loved it back.

How far do you have to go for advanced heart care?

When Kent Easty’s “flu” was a heart attack in disguise, he was glad to be near South Carolina’s first Duke-affiliated heart center. Here, his cardiologist used an innovative radial approach to cardiac catheterization which starts from the wrist instead of the leg. Kent later learned the easier-on-the-body diagnostic procedure is so advanced, it’s not available in many large cities. Now Kent knows the first place to look for the latest care is here in local waters.

the home chef ... on fresh, fast salmon By Harlene Deane Salmon has always been a favorite in the Deane household. This recipe has been made so many times, the page it’s printed on in Emeril’s “Prime Time” is literally falling out of the cook book. Pan-Seared Salmon with Black Bean Relish Ingredients

4 cups black beans, drained and rinsed 2 cups cooked corn kernels* 1/2 cup finely chopped red bell peppers 1/2 cup minced green onion (white and green parts) 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic 4 teaspoons minced jalapeno 1/3 cup chopped cilantro 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 3/4 teaspoons salt 1/4 teaspoon cayenne Six 6-ounce salmon fillets 1 tablespoon Emeril’s Original Essence* 3 tablespoons canola oil

DIRECTIONS In a large bowl combine beans, corn, bell peppers, green onions, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice and olive oil. Stir well to combine, and season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and the cayenne. Let the flavors blend for 30 minutes before serving. Season the salmon fillets with the Essence and remaining salt. Heat the canola oil in one large or two small skillets over high heat. Add the salmon and sear for 2 to 3 minutes

on each side for medium-rare. Do not overcook or fish will be dry. Serve immediately with the black bean relish. Serves 6. Once again, easily cut in half or it makes a great salad for lunch the next day. Chef’s tips: * Frozen corn kernels in microwave steam bags will save time! * Emeril’s Original Essence can be found in the spice section of most major grocery stores. Call Tony at C.J. Seafood Express for salmon availability (986-0245). I got beautiful fillets there last week. Just remember to remove the skins!

lunch bunch Where can you eat excellent wings, juicy burgers and delicious pub fare?

ROSIE O’GRADY’S

By Tess Malijenovsky

Perhaps best known for its great drink specials and being one of the only locations in Beaufort with pool tables, Rosie O’Grady’s also features a menu of hot meals — from chicken wings and salads to Reubens and Philly cheese steak sandwiches. The Lunch Bunch troop gathered at this Irish-style establishment in Beaufort Town Center that has been owned for seven years by Michael and Leslie XXX? To begin with, Leslie recommended we try Rosie’s Buffalo Sampler Platter ($16.95). The platter was packed with a great variety of appetizers to sample including chicken tenders, hot wings, conch fritters, cheese sticks, southwest egg rolls, onion rings, served with a sweet Asian pepper sauce and Horsey sauce. I loved the wings, which were just the right amount of glazed and crispy. Kim was also a fan of the wings and ordered six jumbo chicken wings prepared with the Jamaican rub ($6.95). Rosie’s wings, claiming to be “the best dead chicken arms in town,” can be cooked one of eight ways: Jamaican Jerk, Teriyaki glaze, Jim Beam BBQ, Franks Hot wings, Szechwan, Orange Wasabi,

Fish and chips.

Rosie O’s Philly Cheese Steak.

Lemon Pepper, Garlic Butter, Honey Mustard and Habanera (Friggin’ Hot). Elizabeth chose one of the signature burgers — the Beaufort burger, an 8-ounce seasoned ground beef burger served with lettuce and tomato on a toasted Kaiser roll. She added blue cheese and jalapenos for kicks. David also ordered one of the signature burgers, Rosie’s Philly Cheezburger. His

6-ounce beef patty was topped with an additional four ounces of Philly meat, grilled onions and peppers, provolone cheese and Rosie’s famous Yum Yum sauce. If you come with an appetite, this is a nice looking burger you can’t find anywhere else in town. Buck ordered Rosie O’s Philly Cheese Steak, eight ounces of Philly Meat with grilled peppers and onions, Yum Yum

Even better it was piping hot and extremely moist, all-in-all wonderfully cooked. All of our lunches were served with delicious crinkle fries and we all agreed, “There’s just something good ol’ fashion American about a crinkle fry.” So next time you and your buddies are thinking about rounding up for a few pints and a game of pool, don’t pass up lunch at Rosie O’Grady’s!

You know I don’t ever think about having a bottle of red wine ... unless I see one. Then it’s on. Before I know it, I’m savoring its fruity goodness, its terroir-soaked silkiness, and its warm fuzzy afterglow. All I have to do is spy a classy gold-leafed framed picture of some foofoo chateau in faraway fancy France and my mouth is watering. Other times it’s a quirky funny oddball label that catches my eye — like “Fat Bastard,” “Horse’s Ass” (yes, this a real wine), or “Plunger Head.” They bring a smile to my face and make me want to find out more about these eccentric wine makers who dare to put all their time and money into these bottles and at the same time risk turning off their potential customers with their snarky off-kilter wit. They should probably consider themselves lucky their investors don’t have them committed. Other times I’m amused when a red-wine label tries to capture a lady’s less ladylike feelings with wines like “Bitch” and “Mommy’s Time Out.” “Their names alone are enough to make

At one point, exports these wines into the 1 3 2 were S e a the I s l athird n d P largest a r k w a yimported . 5 2 2 - 3 7group 00 United States, now fourth behind Australia. In 1994, Chile defined four viticultural regions — Atacama, Coquimbo, Aconcaqua and the Central Valle. The climate in these regions is temperate, comparing closely to California and Bordeaux, with summer temperatures averaging at 59 to 64 degrees Fahrenheit. Potential high temperatures are 86 degrees. Chilean wine laws were passed in 1995, and are closer to those of the United States than France or Europe. Wines are required to be 75 percent of the named grape if the wine is to be drunk in Chile, 85 percent for exported wines. Also, the wine must be at least 85 percent from the designated vintage and, if a specific region is claimed, the grapes must be at least 85 percent from that region. The term”reserve,” like in the United States, has no legal meaning. More than 20 grape varieties are grown in Chile. Some Spanish and some French. Chilean wine makers have been developing an easy drinking style for their wines. Soft tannins for their reds, mild acidity and oak in their whites. Toward the end of the twentieth century, as Chilean wines were growing in popularity around the world, tasters began to doubt the authenticity of some of their wines that were labeled as Merlot. Ampelographers (grape variety specialists) found that most of the vines that were thought to be Merlot were in fact Carmenere, an ancient Bordeaux variety that was thought to be extinct. (They also found that the Sauvignon Blanc vines were mostly not, but a mutated cross of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.) And that takes us to this week’s grape — Carmenere. Or the red one, at least. Carmenere (car-men-nair) was originally planted in the Medoc part of the Bordeaux region of France. It is a member of the Cabernet family who’s name comes from the French “carmin” for crimson. That means it’s safe to guess that its wines are dark, crimson red in color. In Chile, this variety has found a

Well, this week we have our work cut out for us. But fun work. We’re going to do two wines — one red and one white. Both new, from the same winery, and from Chile. It’s been a really long time since we tasted any anything from Chile, but fun, fun, fun! Not work. Of course, we’re going to do our history lesson first. As we go through it, though, I for one have my glass right next to me. Maybe you do too? Chilean wine history started about 1554 when Spanish conquistadors and missionaries brought “vitis vinifera” vines with them to the country. Probably, these vines did not come from Europe, but from Peru. (Peru was “visited” by the Spanish before Chile.) And, probably, they were the “common black grape,” the ancestor to the Pais variety that became widely grown in South America. Until the 21 Century, Pais was the most widely planted Chilean grape. The original vineyards were tended by Jesuit priests who used their wines for Church services. By the end of the sixteenth century, Chilean history records not only Pais, but Muscatel, Torontel, Albilho and Mollar varieties were planted in Chile. From the very beginning, the Chilean wine industry was handicapped by Spanish laws. The bulk of the wine drunk in Chile had to be bought from Spain and, in 1641, wine imports from Chile into Spain were banned. With no viable market to sell their wines to the Chilean industry turned to making Pisco, a local brandy, and some aguardiente, a distilled sugar liquor. The Chileans went so far as to try shipping some of their wine to Peru, but when Englishman Sir Francis Drake captured one of their shipments, the Spanish government responded by ordering Chile to tear out its vineyards. In the 18th century, Chile made mostly sweeter style wines from Pais and Muscatel grapes. Over the years, response to these wines ran good and bad, more bad, and awful. But, despite their political link to Spain, Chilean vineyard owners were influenced by their trips to France. The grapes from Bordeaux in particular were imported into Chile as well as French barrels, French wine makers and French tastes. When the phylloxera louse invaded the vineyards of France, and the rest of Europe, many immigrants came to Chile to work in the vineyards there. In the 20th century, political instability, government regulations and high taxes all slowed the growth of the Chilean wine industry again. Before the 1980’s, most of Chilean wine was considered to be poor quality and was drunk locally. But, word spread of the good Chilean growing conditions, outside investors

Adding, “I like a bottle that sends a not-so-subtle message to my ‘water on the brain’ husband — Put down that Terry fishing pole and help Sweeney me with these rotten kids or I’m outta here!” Ah, red wine. A friend when I’m in need, but a “friend indeed?” Not so much around 4 a.m., when I inexplicably sit up in bed, wide awake, dehydrated, heart beating like I’m ready to run a marathon, or simply run myself ragged making an endless mental todo list instead of sleeping like the rest of the world. In the early morning pre-darkness, I’m wondering, “What was I thinking drinking all that red wine when I knew this was going to happen?” Is it the sulfates? Is it the sugar? Or is it a fact that I’m some kind of out-of-control lush bucket who loves to

Its wines are medium bodied, deep red in color with aromas of red fruits, spices and berries and tannins that are gentler and softer than in Cabernet Sauvignon. When a wine is made completely from ripe Carmenere grapes it has a cherrylike fruit flavor with smoke, spice and earthy notes and, possibly, some chocolate, tobacco and leather. These wines are best drunk fairly young. When you look at Carmenere grapes on the vine, it is easy to see why they were thought to be Merlot for so long. Each variety of grape has its own grape leaf shape and cone shape that the grapes clusters form as they grow. Merlot and Carmenere leaves are very similar, although there are noticeable differences in their cones. It was the close leaf similarity that caused the mistaken identity. On a personal note, the “discovery” of Carmenere’s existence in Chile has happened during my time in the wine business. Just like when you go to Napa during a harvest, you always remember the information on that particular vintage. A glass of Carmenere is always special to me. Anyhow, our Carmenere wine comes from Calina. This winery is located in the foothills of the Maule Valley in Chile. This valley in one of four sub-regions in the Valle Central. The harvest of the grapes for this wine in done by hand. After a three day cold soak to extract the soft tannins, the deep color and the flavors, the juice is fermented and then aged in French and American barrels. The 2010 Carmenere is a dark, inky color with intense aromas of black cherries, fresh berries, spice and fresh herbs. The layered soft tannins support the opulent fruit flavors. The wine is 100% Carmenere. And, as promised, we have a second wine, the Calina Chardonnay. These grapes are also hand picked and sorted, crushed as whole clusters, and then fermented sixty percent in French and American barrels and forty percent in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation brings out a creamy texture in the wine that is full of citrus, peach, melon and tropical fruit flavors with an underlying minerality. A bit of oak lingers in the long finish. So, there they are, our two Chilean wines for this week. Both spectacular, really, really good examples of what these grapes from this country can be. And both of them above and beyond in what they deliver. But, there’s always the question of price. Good news, though. They’re both $8.99. Part of the residual effect of Chile’s long-suffering wine industry? Maybe. But at least now we know there are still great wines at great prices. Enjoy.

sip the night away without a shred of selfcontrol or foresight? Nah, it’s the sulfates. Maybe there should be a Wee Hours Red Wine Club that meets, well, in the wee hours! That way people like me (and maybe you) can get up and text each other. Me:“Hey Cathy? You up?” Cathy:”What do you think?” Me:”I’ve got so much energy right now I’m ready to get up and start training for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.” Cathy: “That damn Barefoot Merlot kicked my butt again.” Me: “Tell me about it. I feel like an Alexander Valley Cab ran me over in my bed and left me staring up at my ceiling and talking to myself.” Cathy:“That’s it. I’m off red wine.” Me: “Me too! That red devil can put someone else through this toss and turn torture.” We both definitely decide, enough is enough. I stay far from the red wine aisle at the supermarket for the next week. And whaddya know? I’m on the treadmill, deep cleaning my oven, and I’m even considering opening the large scary bag in my closet with all the receipts in it from 2011 and actually

doing my taxes before the night before my extension is up. I don’t do it. But I am “considering” it — that’s real progress. I can’t believe how well I’m functioning; maybe because I’m sleeping like normal, non-red wine drinking people do. But then a day comes along when, quite by accident, I spot a bottle of red wine in my peripheral vision that crooks its finger at me and invites me to open it up and taste its full red palate of smoky spices and luscious berries and inhale its heavy aroma of sage and leather. I give in, of course, and before I know it I’m listening to Brazilian samba and floating around my house on a cushy purple cloud. Eventually I’m off to bed and to dreamland.“That was wonderful,” I sigh as I drift off ... and then awaken.“Ah! Is it 8 a.m. already?” I say checking the time. “2:30???!!” Surprise! I’m up and WIDE AWAKE. I quietly text my red-wine loving friend in the total darkness.“Cathy?.....” Her reply is all too swift:“Yeah, me too.” Cheers! P.S.: Inexplicably, the words “chipotle mayonnaise” appeared out of nowhere on the printed version of my prawn recipe last week. Please ignore. It’s a marinade, not a mayonnaise and there’s no chipotle in it!

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol 10 HEALING HERBS FOR HOUNDS AND HUMANS

#7: Calendula, Herb of the Year, 2008 Juliette de Bairacli, author of the book “The Complete Herbal Handbook For The Dog and Cat” and founder of the Natural Rearing Movement, considered Calendula an important tonic and heart medicine. From her “Complete Herbal Handbook for the Farm and Stable,” she states, “The flowers possess important restorative powers over the arteries and veins, and thus are much fed by the Arabs to their racing horses. The flowers are fed also to make miserable and fretting animals cheerful.” Beyond fancy race horse chow, calendula also makes for a cheerful perennial in your garden and is prized by herbalists for its versatile benefits. Calendula officinalis, also known as pot marigold, has bright yellow, orange, or redorange flowers first to arrive in the spring and often the last to leave in the fall. It is among the first herbs to consider in minor first aid situations. A broad array of medicinal compounds in the flowers of the plant, including various essential oils, flavonoids, saponins, triterpene alcohols, carotenes and others, combine to help speed cell reproduction and inhibit bacteria and fungi at the site

of injury. For minor cuts, insect bites, abrasions, or post-surgical incisions, calendula salve will bring quick, soothing relief to pain and swelling, while lending wound-healing, antimicrobial properties to the body’s healing effort. It is often found in ointments for diaper rash, gentle enough for a baby’s bottom. During the summers in Vermont, I would harvest the plants and prepare calendula ointment for use on the paws of the dogs in the mushing community come winter time. The mushers I worked with were professional, working dogs that by starry night happily toured resort visitors though waist-deep snow. By day, they rested, lounged, played, ate heartily and had their paws massaged with calendula

cream. We never had a problem among the 176 paws that did tough duty daily nor did our hands chap exposed as they were all through the season. I made a lot of good dog friends those winters; big, gnarly mushing dogs become real goobers when you massage their paws. Infusions of the flowers are effective as a soothing and healing skin wash for various forms of inflammatory dermatitis, too, such as fleabites, poison ivy, eczema, or sunburn or external ear irritation. A calendula herbal flush will help keep your dog’s ears free of discharge and reduce irritation. Use it once or twice daily and you can eliminate ear goo without chemicals. The antimicrobial and astringent nature of this plant also make it useful for treating

burns as well — that would be more for people, I hope. Calendula has an exceptional safety record and is recommended for dogs of all ages. However, in one study, calendula may have triggered miscarriages in pregnant rats so there is a caution against feeding calendula to pregnant dogs in the early weeks. However, if your yard is overtaken with the cheerful orange flowers, know that you can add the blossoms, teas or hydrosols to your dog’s food with no ill effects. Calendula has been shown to improve digestion, treat colitis and other chronic gut problems as well as prevent yeast or fungal overgrowths. In addition, animal studies have shown that the saponin constituents in calendula may possess antitumor activities. Dampen your dog’s toothbrush with calendula tea or wrap gauze around your finger, soak it, and massage your dog’s gums to fight gum disease and mouth irritations. Apply calendula salve to any cut, scrape, bite or other injury and remember to treat your dog friends to a calendula pad massage after a run on the hot sand at the beach.

pet-related events Beaufort Dog presents ‘Bark to School’ events

Beaufort Dog presents “Bark to School” events at their downtown location. As former educators and present behaviorists, owners Jason and Kelley Blackston use many of the techniques they learned working in college as YMCA directors and in the public school system as educators to enhance doggie day care procedures at Beaufort Dog. “In addition to providing top notch socialization and safety, we have implemented check in and out procedures where owners can drive up without ever having to get out of their car.” “We have also created inside and outside play groups including agility courses and a dog water park area. We have a lot of fun.” Owners are encouraged to drop by anytime to check out Bark to School. At doggie day care, dogs not only become more socialized and learn manners, they are healthier. They get much-needed mental stimulation that provides for a happier, longer-living dog. In addition, dogs are able to get energy out and become better behaved and more focused. Owners enjoy the benefits of having a well-balanced dog without having to spend excessive time on behavior and exercise. In addition, Beaufort Dog offers on site grooming, training, and vet services offered while dogs are at day care. Find out more about Beaufort Dog at their Facebook page, online at www. BeaufortDog.com, or by calling 812-5394.

Putting your life on the lines: Memoir Writing

Your life story doesn’t have to have been overly dramatic in order to write a memoir. In this class, you’ll recount and record those tales you’ve been telling your family, children and grandkids for years. Whether you choose to write about a specific experience or cover a number of years’ worth, you’ll learn the skills necessary to organize and craft a written legacy for yourself, your family and/or publication. Through in-class and athome exercises, you’ll have a great start on your memoir by the end of the six weeks. Mondays, September 10 through October 15, 6 – 8 p.m. $110,Technical College of the Lowcountry, Beaufort Campus, www.tcl.edu/continuing-ed/ life or 843-525-8205.

Purge unwanted items and Let Reality Prevail

Sponsored by The Lending Room, Roxanne Cheney Organizes, and TheraVistas, the JOY event lets you purge, purge, purge all those things you no longer need or want and release them. So, start purging and gathering your “Joy” for Saturday, Sept. 29 at Martha O’Regan’s home. Martha said, “Let me know when you want to drop it off so the door will be open for you. For me, this Joy event has a theme and it’s: Let Reality Prevail! So, as I look at an item or hold it up in front of a family member, I ask ‘Really? Do you really want to keep this, store this, clean this, fix this?’ If the answer is no — it’s JOY for someone or possibly it is just trash. Having two parents and all grandparents transition to other realms, I have managed to acquire much of their JOY. I’ve decided that just because they loved their JOY and I loved them, I don’t need to love their JOY, so I release it. Ah, freedom!”

Knights of Columbus hold Charity Bingo

Knights of Columbus Charity Bingo will be held Monday nights. Doors open at 6 p.m. and games begin at 7 p.m. All profits are distributed to charities within the Beaufort community. Bingo is located at 210-BB Ribaut Rd (behind Keith’s House of Plumbing). 522-3531.
