Beaufort passion play

As Historic Beaufort Foundation’s seat on city review board hangs in balance, many say character of city is at stake

By Mindy Lucas Many of Beaufort’s community leaders, both past and present, were on hand at the city’s regular council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 26 – a meeting that pitted im-

passioned preservationists who believe the character of the city is at stake against developers who accused a local historic preservation organization of overreaching. Those leaders, along with

residents and developers, rose during the more than four-hour meeting to give their thoughts on a controversial amendment that would remove Historic Beaufort Foundation’s (HBF)

longstanding seat on the city’s Historic District Review Board. While ultimately council members voted 3 to 2 on first reading to remove the seat, their action was not without

Sgt. Samantha Alexander was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time seven months ago. As a result, she saved a teenaged boy’s life. Now, she’s being rewarded for her actions. Alexander, the Distribution Management Office freight non-commissioned officer in charge at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal (NCM) on Nov. 13 for saving the life of a local teenager April 25, 2019. The NCM is a decoration presented by the U.S. Department of the Navy to service members of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps who have performed an exceedingly heroic act, exceptional achievement, or commendable service that has not

Ethan Bosworth, 20, of Beaufort, was shot around 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22 while in a car on Waddell Road, said Beaufort County Deputy Coroner David Ott. After he was shot, Bosworth drove a short distance before crashing into a tree. He was taken to Beaufort Me-

morial Hospital where he was later pronounced dead, Ott said. The shooting has been ruled a homicide. Bosworth was the only person in the car at the time of incident, said Sgt. Patrick Schmucker with the Beaufort Police Department. No arrests have been made and no other

details on the shooting were available as of Monday, Dec. 2. The investigation is on-going, Schmucker said. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Sgt. Josh Dowling at 843-322-7950 or the tip line at 843-322-7938.

Penn Center lecture series to open with Robert Smalls — The Inside Story The York W. Bailey Museum at the historic Penn Center will launch the Hastings Gantt Reconstruction Era Lecture Series with a special presentation, “Robert Smalls — The Inside Story,” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7. The Hastings Gantt Reconstruction Era Lecture Series aims to provide a deeper understanding of how individuals, organizations, and even schools like Penn School, contributed to our nation’s, and especially Beaufort County’s Reconstruction era history, beginning in 1861 and lasting through 1898. During this historic period, our nation began to work on strategies on how to integrate the newly freed African Americans into every level of society. The lecture series is named in honor of Hastings Gantt, an unsung hero of the Reconstruction Era and formerly enslaved man from St. Helena Island, who once owned the 50-acres of land known today as Penn School National Historic Landmark District, and sold it to Laura Towne, who founded Penn School in 1862. Gantt later served in the South Carolina Legislature at the same time as Congressman Robert Smalls. The story of Smalls' bold conquest of freedom and his ground-

breaking legislative and business career is growing in stature. A number of new books have come out in the last few years and major motion picture projects are currently in development. For the first time though, hear the inside story of the life and times of Robert Smalls. Exclusively at Penn Center, Smalls’ great great grandson, Michael Boulware Moore, shares family stories and never before shown family pictures that present even greater detail about the person Congressman James E. Clyburn calls "the most consequential man in South Carolina history!” Michael Moore is the Founding President and CEO of the International African American Museum in Charleston. Located on the spot where almost half of all enslaved Africans brought to America took their first steps, the museum is scheduled to open in 2021 and will be an innovative, in-

formative, and emotionally powerful experience for all. Moore led efforts to raise over $100 million in capital funds, the curation and design of the museum experience, the architecture and landscape design, the hiring of a world-class leadership team, as well as the creation of national and international awareness of the museum. During his presentation, Moore will share many family stories and why Penn School was so important to the Robert Smalls family. “Robert Smalls — The Inside Story” will take place at Penn Center’s Frissell Community House located at 6 Penn Center Circle West, St. Helena Island. Reserve your seat today by calling 843-838-7105 to pay your admission, or pay on arrival. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for teachers and $5 for students.

community garden at 1707 Duke St. in Beaufort. Troop, 4106 has collaborated with Troop 836 to sustain a community garden and the Lowcountry Blessing Box Project along with the Homeless Period Project to keep it stocked with feminine products. The scouts worked very hard to accomplish this to help the community combat food insecurity, increase access to resources without judgment and facilitate menstrual cycle help for the homeless. The troop will be at the Night on the Town on Friday, Dec. 6 from 6-9 p.m. to hand out informative brochures with a collection box for the community to drop off any non-perishable goods. They will also have hot chocolate. The blessing box project is a food drive project where people can give and receive. People can put all types

of products into the blessing box such as canned foods, clothing and accessories, menstrual cycle items, baby essentials, hygienic essentials, educational materials, and even pet necessities. The Homeless Period Project will be supplying menstrual products to the blessing box as needed when sanitary products are being used and running low. The Community Garden project facilitates much needed access to fresh foods that are available seasonally to provide our local citizens with produce that they can use to combat nutritional deficit in our area including a widely increasing food desert in Beaufort where it is difficult to buy affordable fresh food. The garden currently has kale, cabbage, onions, garlic, cauliflower and broccoli available for the picking and encourage the community to use what they need.

Trask’s comments, which were met with loud applause by those in attendance, were echoed by many of Beaufort’s longtime residents as well as some newcomers who fear the removal of a historic preservation expert from the review board would lead to the city’s downfall as a place of historic and special significance. Without oversight, looser requirements could usher in an era of substandard housing and more and bigger development with buildings that don’t fit in with the city’s historic character, many said. However, Mayor Billy Keyserling reiterated his posi-

On Saturday, Nov. 23, the Girl Scouts of Troop 4105 celebrated Thanksgiving by giving back to the community from noon until 2 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park on St. Helena Island. The girls served hot, free Thanksgiving dinners to the community, including curbside services for senior citizens, the disabled, and homebound.

The menu included turkey, ham, yellow rice, string beans, candied yams, gravy, cranberry sauce, cornbread, cake, lemonade and water. Food was donated by Girls Scouts leaders, co-leaders, adult volunteers and parents. The troop goal was to serve 100 dinners, and they exceeded expectations and served 130 dinners to the community.

The following communities were represented and served at the dinner: St. Helena Island, Lady’s Island, Beaufort, Port Royal, Shell Point, Yemassee, Hilton Head Island and Savannah, Ga. Thanks to all the supporters, which includes the Penn Center Park Committee, for giving the troop the privilege to serve the community at the park.

The comments came during a separate discussion on a number of changes to the Beaufort Development Code city council is considering. Among those changes is the removal of a 160-foot restriction on the size of apartment buildings.

Still, Stewart argued that the process for working with the city’s historic review board has changed over the years, and that HBF as an organization is “not what it used to be.” Stewart has not shied away from voicing his frustrations with the HBF at review meetings in the past and has taken particular issue with what he says is a lack of consensus on suggested changes to projects he’s proposed. “HBF should be a serious partner and should work with those of us who are willing to invest in making the historic district better,” he said at Tuesday’s meeting. “… HBF should be your partner and our partner, and not the personal platform for one or two individuals to put forth their preferences.” City Council members Billy Keyserling, Nan Sutton and Mike McFee voted to remove the seat, while Stephen Murray and Phil Cromer voted against the amendment. City council is expected to take up the issue again at its Dec. 10 meeting. ately transported to Savannah. The doctors confirmed that it was an arterial bleed, and Alexander’s quick reaction to stop the bleeding saved his life. “If I wasn’t a Marine, I would not have known what to do at all,” Alexander said. “It was instinct and I hope that any one of us would have done the same thing.”

tion, that 20 percent of the vote of any regulatory agency should not be in the hands of one special interest group, a position he had outlined a week earlier in a column for The Island News. “So why, when we are liable and could be at fault, would we give this authority away …” he added Tuesday night. He reminded those gathered that the removal of the seat from the review board would not prevent the HBF from recommending applicants – whether their own members or other supporters – for the committee’s five-member board. Keyserling also brought up earlier comments made by Dick Stewart. The Beaufort developer has, at times, butted heads with the Historic Beaufort Foundation (HBF) over projects he has wanted to build in and around the city’s historic district. “Mr. Stewart talked about (how) he could have sued, but he didn’t because he didn’t want a war,” Keyserling said. Stewart brought up his company’s latest project

earlier in the meeting, a student housing development built for USC Beaufort along Boundary Street. Completed last summer, the project was initially to be one apartment building that spanned the block. However, the city’s review board ruled otherwise,

Stewart said, citing the building’s size. “I could have sued and won that, but that would have taken a long time, and USCB’s students would not have had a place to live, and USCB wouldn’t have offered courses here, so we ate the cost …,” he said.

Stewart maintained it is more expensive to build separate buildings and having to build two, in order to meet that restriction, added about $250,000 more to the project. The discussion seemed to only add to the contention between those who attended the meeting.

Stewart and other developers at the meeting, called the number “arbitrary” and cited other buildings in town that were wider than 160 feet including Saltus and Beaufort Baptist Church. But preservationists and others took issue with that characterization saying those buildings were there before the code was passed, were historic and saved as a result. Rikki Parker with the Coastal Conservation League said the code, based on a typical 300 by 300 foot Beaufort city block, was meant to ensure that developers didn’t build “monolithic building types” that then dominated a block. “Can you imagine what a large-scale dormitory at that location would do, and how it would change the look of the Bellamy Curve,” she said. The new USCB dormitories are a perfect example of the wisdom of the planning decision, she added. “What we’re seeing is the impacts of a good and strong regulation within the code,” she said.

As she was getting closer, she noticed that the woman who had hit the two boys was standing over them screaming franticly, “I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry!” Another gentleman ran to attend to one of the boys, so

Alexander helped the other. “While I started talking to the (boy), I asked him his name, how old he was and I told him who I was. He said he had just got released from high school, and they were riding their bikes home.” As she talked to the boy, she examined his body for trauma. “I noticed that he had

blood on his pants and they were torn. I (moved) the sweatpants, and could see bone and fatty tissue. I pulled off my belt and I tied it as far above the laceration as possible.” Alexander kept telling the boy to brace for the pain, but due to the traumatic leg injury he couldn’t feel his leg. “Once I got it tightened

down as much as I could, I locked it in place and sat there talking to him.” Despite seeing tunnel vision, and having spiked adrenaline, Alexander remained calm for the boy until emergency services arrived. Shortly after EMS arrived, the boys were taken to Beaufort Memorial Hospital where the 15-year-old was immedi-

Photographer and author Tim Barnwell will be in Beaufort on Friday, Dec. 6 for book signings for his latest title, Tide Runners: Shrimping and Fishing on the Carolinas and Georgia Coast. Best known for his touching and evocative images of Appalachia, Barnwell turns his eye and documentary talents to focus on the shrimping and fishing industries of the southeastern coast. The book is the culmination of

nine years of work during which Mr. Barnwell explored coastal towns of North Carolina and dozens of seaboard locations in South Carolina and Georgia. A large concentration of photographs were made in the Beaufort area with images from St. Helena Island, Hunting Island, and Port Royal. Barnwell will be at Beaufort Bookstore (2127 Boundary St.) from 2-4 p.m., and at McIntosh Book Shoppe (917 Bay St.) from 5-8 p.m. as part of

First Friday events. Signings are free and open to the public. Book retail is $34.95. This 160-page hardcover coffee-table book contains more than 100 full-page color portrait and landscape photographs which are combined with oral history interview, where subjects share family stories and describe their work routines and daily activities. This pairing of images and text reveal the hard work, dedication, and

stamina of these independent folk and the beauty of their rugged way of life. Tim Barnwell is one of the most published photographers in the South. He has been a contributing photographer to dozens of books and is the author of seven of his own; The Face of Appalachia, On Earth’s Furrowed Brow, Hands in Harmony, Blue Ridge Parkway Vistas, Great Smoky Mountains Vistas, and Faces and Places of Cashiers Valley.

FEEDING THOSE IN NEED

Volunteers grab a quick bight to eat during a lull in the action during Shell Point Baptist Church’s Free Community Dinner on Thursday on the grounds of Sea Eagle Market on Boundary Street. The dinner was for those less fortunate that had nowhere else to go on Thanksgiving. Some free clothing and Bibles were on hand, as well. The food and drinks were all donated and prepared by the cooks at Sea Eagle Market and were free of charge. Many of the guests just wandered in off the street. Some patrons were even a ride back to the church to take a much needed shower. Pastor Darren Jones of SPBC said more than 150 people were served but some got three and four dinners to take with them. “For some, this is all they had to eat. Give them what they need. We don’t care,” he said.

HEALTH

36 fabulous foods that will help eyes I f you’re looking for a diet that’s healthy for your eyes, here’s some good news: The same diet that helps your heart and the rest of your body will help your eyes. Plus, you’ll enjoy many delicious choices. For “2020: The Year of the Eye,” the American Academy of Ophthalmology intended to list 20 vision-healthy foods. Instead, they came up with 36. It’s a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, beans and fish. Why is nutrition important for good vision? Some nutrients keep the eye healthy overall, and some have been found to reduce the risk of eye diseases. Eating a diet low in fat and rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains can help not only your heart but also your eyes. This isn't surprising: Your eyes rely on tiny arteries for oxygen and nutrients, just as the heart relies on much larger arteries. Keeping those arteries healthy will help your eyes. What should I focus on for eye-healthy eating? – Orange-colored vegetables and fruits with vitamin A. Perhaps the best-known eye-healthy nutrient is vitamin A. Your retina needs plenty of vitamin A to help turn light rays into the

DR. MARK SIEGEL

images we see. Also, without enough vitamin A, your eyes can’t stay moist enough to prevent dry eye. Carrots are a well-known source of vitamin A. Sweet potatoes provide even more vitamin A. A sweet potato has more than 200 percent of the daily dose of vitamin A. Fruits, including cantaloupe and apricots, can be a good source of vitamin A. – Fruits and veggies rich in Vitamin C Vitamin C is critical to eye health. As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps protect the body from damage caused by some things we eat, unhealthy habits and environmental factors. Fried foods, tobacco smoke and the sun’s rays can produce free radicals – molecules that can damage and kill cells. Vitamin C helps repair and grow new tissue cells. Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruits, such as oranges, tangerines, grapefruit and lemons. Lots of other foods offer vitamin

C, including peaches, red bell peppers, tomatoes and strawberries. Antioxidants can prevent or at least delay age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, according to the Age-Related Eye Diseases Study (AREDS). – Vitamin E Another important antioxidant is vitamin E, which helps keep cells healthy. Vitamin E can be found in avocados, almonds and sunflower seeds. – Cold-water fish with omega-3 fatty acids Diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids from cold-water fish may help reduce the risk of developing eye disease later in life, research suggests. These fish include salmon, tuna, sardines, halibut and trout. Omega-3’s are good for tear function, so eating fish may help people with dry eye. – Leafy green vegetables rich in lutein and zeaxanthin Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants found in the pigments of leafy green vegetables and other brightly colored foods. They are key to protecting the macula, the area of the eye that gives us our central, most detailed vision. Kale and spinach have plenty of these nutrients.

Other foods with useful amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin include romaine lettuce, collards, turnip greens, broccoli and peas. And while not leafy and green, eggs also are a good source of these nutrients. – Beans and zinc The mineral zinc helps keep the retina healthy and may protect your eyes from the damaging effects of light. However, zinc can lower the amount of copper in your body, which we need to help form red blood cells. Fortunately, you can increase both at once with all kinds of beans (legumes), including black-eyed peas, kidney beans and lima beans. Other foods high in zinc include

oysters, lean red meat, poultry and fortified cereals. Should I get eye-healthy nutrients through vitamin supplements? Eating the right food is the best way to get eye-healthy nutrients. In general, most Americans can and should get enough nutrients through their diet without needing to take supplements. People who have macular degeneration are an exception. In this case, taking supplements is recommended by the Age Related Eye Disease Study 2, a follow-up to the AREDS (Age-Related Eye Disease) Study. Talk with your ophthalmologist if you or a family member has AMD.

No matter your age, it’s not too late to start eating healthy. So many of my patients focus on a healthy diet only after they’ve been diagnosed with a serious health problem. Start eating well now to benefit your vision and your health for the rest of your life. As the year comes to an end, on behalf of myself and the staff of Sea Island Ophthalmology, we wish everyone the happiest of holidays and a New Year filled with good vision, time with family and loved ones and a sea of endless possibilities.

Beaufort Eagles take 2 of 3 at Summerville Quad

Eagles set up trees for a good cause The Beaufort Eagles Wrestling Team participated Sunday, Dec. 1 in its annual community service project to help the Friends of Carolina Hospice, its adopted charity for the Festival of Trees. The team gathered late in the morning and worked through the afternoon setting up 45 Christmas trees. The team also sponsored and decorated a tree of its own this year. “I am very proud of our team and the hours we put in today to make some-

one else's holidays brighter and more merry,” Beaufort High School assistant athletic director Ron Lanham said in a release. “If nobody purchases our tree, it will be donated to an individual in hospice care or a first responder that needs a tree of their own. I'm very proud of our team and their commitment to give back to the community.” The trees will be on display through Thursday, Dec. 5 at Tabby Place on Port Republic Street.

College Board sponsoring college workshop The College Board will sponsor a free workshop Thursday, Dec. 5 for students and parents who want to learn more about planning for college and the free resources available to assist with that planning. The 6 p.m. workshop will be held in Bluffton High School’s Performing Arts Center. The College Board is best known for administering the SAT college entrance exam, the preliminary SAT (PSAT) and Advanced Placement exams through which high school students can earn free college course credits. Topics to be covered at the free workshop will include: • Starting a college search – questions to ask and where to find information. • Preparing for the SAT – taking PSAT or Preliminary SAT, using PSAT score reports and free personalized practice resources. • Building your academic transcript – selecting the right courses and how Advanced Placement (AP) courses fit into your plan. • Connecting to scholarships and other postsecondary opportunities – Student Search Service, College Board Opportunity Scholarships and more. A similar event for students and parents, sponsored by the ACT college entrance exam, will be held at Battery Creek High in February.

Beaufort High’s wrestling team opened the season by going 2-1 at the Summerville Quad on Monday night. The Eagles, who are ranked fifth in Class 4A in the preseason rankings at SCMat.com, led off with a 54-28 loss to Class 5A No. 6 Summerville before defeating Hanahan (48-36) and Swansea (54-30). Theo Washington (220) went 3-0 on the night with three pins, Matthew Durrance (145) was 2-0 with two pins, and Michael Cenci (170) was 2-0 with one pin to lead the Eagles. Newcomer Brenden Glover (160) scored two victories with two pins, Terrence Wilson (285) was 2-0 with a pin, and Devon Langfeldt (195), Colton Phares (152), Josh Warren (138), and Adam Burvenich (152) all scored pins during the night. The Eagles next action will be Dec. 6-7 at the May River Invitational.

Local students earn recognition at Youth in Government conference

Numerous students from Beaufort County high schools earned recognition at last weekend’s state 2019 Model Legislature and Court conference in Columbia. More than 1,500 high school students attended the threeday event at the Columbia Convention Center, participating in simulations of South

Carolina's democratic process. Acting as state legislators, the students wrote, debated and voted on legislation. Students also acted as candidates, lobbyists, news media, lawyers and judges. Officers elected by students serve as Governor, Lt. Governor, Speaker of the House, Attorney General, Secretary of

State, Secretary of Education and Comptroller General. Beaufort High and Bluffton High students were honored as “premier delegations” at the annual conference. In addition, Beaufort, Bluffton and May River high school students earned a variety of individual honors. A fourth district high

school, Battery Creek, sent a student delegation to the 2019 state conference in preparation for full Youth in Government participation next year. “Our students always set a very high bar at the annual state Youth in Government Conference,” Superintendent Frank Rodriguez said. “We’re very proud of them.”

Numerous Beaufort High School students earned individual and team recognition at this year’s conference, including: Leadership • Anastacia Thacker – Phillip Bradley Award, a $750 scholarship to recognize outstanding leadership qualities

Additional recognition • Carlisle Salapare – Outstanding Witness Award. • Lindsey Breaux, Shiloh Court, Gabriel Jenkins, Alana Jenkins, Jose Restrepo, Griffin Siegel, Ana Thacker and Carlisle Salapare – Trial Team 2 among the top 20 percent in the state.

Foundation awards grants for Beaufort County teachers The Foundation for Educational Excellence awarded 19 Innovative Teacher and School Resource Grants on Tuesday, Nov. 19 to teachers across Beaufort County.

B2

DECEMBER 5 -11, 2019

students throughout the district at all age levels,” chairperson Deborah Colella said in a release. Projects funded this grant cycle range from science to the Arts and everything in between. Battery Creek High School’s Vincent Vernacchio won a grant for “Argument Driven Inquiry.” Port Royal Elementary’s Kim Waters won a grant for “We Need A Hero.” “Bridging the Language Divide”

won for LaToi Smith for Mossy Oaks, Whale Branch and Davis elementary schools and Whale Branch Middle School. Rebecca Gerrard and Barbara Mallon of Robert Smalls International Academy won a grant for “Learning With LEGOs.” Kelly Lee Turner of Whale Branch Elementary won a grant for “World Drumming.” Also receiving a grant this fall was a unique project entitled

“BOOK CLUBS – Bringing families and classrooms together.” This innovative idea will impact all ELA students district-wide through the purchase of new and relevant books to facilitate parent/student book clubs. This grant cycle was partially funded by generous contributions by The Bargain Box of Hilton Head, Friends of Callawassie, Italian American Club of Hilton Head and

the foundation’s major fundraiser, “Jewels and Jeans.” “We are so thankful to the organizations that help make it possible for the foundation to award grants to these inventive teachers who want to go beyond the basic to transform the educational experience of students in Beaufort County,” foundation board member and grant chair Michel Claudio said in a release.

It’s finally time to return to Bedford Falls B edford Falls is a little town I get to revisit every year around this time. It is one of those places where all the town’s people are familiar. There is George Bailey, the local Savings and Loan Manager, his wife Mary and their four children. They live in one of those old Victorian houses. There is Bert, the local cop in town, and Ernie, the taxicab driver. The town seems to reappear, like Brigadoon, and once again, I am immersed in the movie classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It is a compliment to the

highlighting daily life observations

original movie, that other producers have tried to recreate it. Marlo Thomas played the lead role in the modern version called “It Happened one Christmas.” Yet that made-for-tv movie never captured the angst ex-

pressed on George Bailey’s face (Jimmy Steward) when his wife Mary (Donna Reed) did not know him. “Mary, don’t you know me?” There are other Christmas shows where an angel appears to the main character and reveals to them what their life could have been. “The Family Man” with Nicholas Cage portrays a wealthy investment banker who becomes a tire salesman, with a wife and two precious kids, in his other life. It is the life that could have been. The Hallmark Channel has also jumped on the

bandwagon with a new Christmas movie every year, where the Angel shows up to reveal the characters alternate life. Hallmark also ends many of their shows with the snow falling. It is a tribute to when George Bailey, standing there on the bridge praying, “Please God, let me live” and he realizes it is snowing and his lip is bleeding. That scene is engraved in my brain as George’s disparity turns into hope and joy. Even Jim Henson’s “The Muppets” has two characters named Bert and Ernie. It is said that it was not intentional, and yet, one must

wonder if there was some subliminal message to him that brought those two Muppets to life. There are lots of other Christmas shows on television now and many more streaming on various services. The classic Christmas shows like “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer, and multiple versions of “A Christmas Carol” all fill the airways. Then there are the movie classics like “The Bishop’s Wife”, “A White Christmas”, and “Miracle on 34th Street” that are fun to watch during

the Christmas season. But none of them capture the spirit of the holidays like “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Yes, there are lots of other popular shows, but to me, it is not Christmas until I see Zu-Zu’s petals and know that Clarence is getting his wings. It is time to return to Bedford Falls.

We must protect Energy Freedom Act, renewable energy opportunities

By Shannon Erickson

S

trong progress for clean energy was accomplished in South Carolina this year. Advocates came together, overwhelmingly passing the Energy Freedom Act with the intent of growing solar in our state. The hope, as both sides of the aisle agreed, was that we’d helped to level the playing field for this burgeoning industry that’s brought thousands of jobs for our people and hundreds of millions of dollars of investment for our economy. Last week, however, the S.C. Public Service Commis-

sion (PSC) showed disregard for that progress with a ruling that could shatter the work and intent of stakeholders working to give options to ratepayers. Now, in addition to having the highest power bills in the country, South Carolina is poised to place the lowest value on solar energy of any state in the country. That’s right. After the S.C. General Assembly passed landmark legislation demonstrating our desire to expand the solar market, giving solar its shot as a legitimate, cost-competitive energy source, the PSC has made

a decision that could force solar companies to pack up and leave South Carolina. The hearing outcomes have been reported in several news outlets. You can watch the entire meeting here: https://www.scetv.org/ live/public-service-commission. The debate between commissioners over the issue is enlightening. Bottom line, though, the numbers tell the story. The rate the S.C. PSC approved pays $21.43 per megawatt hour for solar. In Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia, they’re paying between $3640 per megawatt hour. Those

are much closer to a fair, equitable price that accounts for the true market value of solar. Other states are also setting contract terms that are more equitable than the 10-year term the PSC set last week. Our neighboring states are setting 20- and 30-year terms that are more in line with the licenses of traditional power plants. A utility would never agree to incur the cost of building a power plant if the use of its output was only guaranteed for 10 years. The same is true with large-scale solar – longer terms should

be prescribed, putting it on even-footing with other energy sources. Also at risk could be increases to the more than 3,000 South Carolinians employed within the solar energy industry. If we don’t impede its growth with game-changers like this PSC ruling, the industry is projected to employ more than 10,000 South Carolinians within just a few more years. The economic investment and tax payments for counties where large solar projects are sited is also projected to increase, and those communities need the

kind of cash infusion the solar industry brings. Our state literally cannot afford to watch the solar industry walk away. Can solar survive the PSC’s latest ruling? Legislators are watching carefully as the implications of this decision unfold. We will work to ensure that the Energy Freedom Act is upheld and renewable energy opportunities in South Carolina are indeed expanded. Representative Shannon S. Erickson, South Carolina House District 124, Beaufort, serves on House Ways & Means as Transportation and Regulations as Subcommittee Chairman.

VOICES

Decision to eliminate Historic Beaufort’s board seat stunning, disappointing I t’s late, very late in the evening, and I’m sitting in City Council chambers at Beaufort’s City Hall. There are about 50 people left in this pleasant, well-lit, wood paneled room where it is surprisingly hard to hear Council or those who try to speak at the podium. Notwithstanding the acoustics, those who remain are stunned, disappointed, and eager to get home and get away from Council’s vote tonight. Mayor Billy Keyserling and his Council have just voted to strip away the Historic Beaufort Foundation’s right to nominate a representative to the City’s Historic District Review Board. The 3-2 decision was rendered three hours into the first reading (of the proposed amendment) with Mayor Keyserling leading the charge to eliminate

SCOTT GRABER

Historic Beaufort’s seat on this Board. Prior to its decision, the Council (other than Keyserling) sat unsmiling, and mostly stone-faced as George Trask, John Troutman, Wayne Vance, Maxine Lutz, Terry Murray and others pleaded with Council not to eliminate the foundation’s ability to nominate a person for this board. GeorgeTrask evoked the memory of Henry Chambers, Brantley and Helen Harvey. Terry Murray said that the cities of Greenwood and Anderson have the same

representative arrangement that we have here. Chuck Sims — a member of the board itself — said 99 percent of the decisions were unanimous. Dr. Eric Emerson said that the historic districts in Savannah and Charleston are under investigation (or siege) because the regulatory boards have been weakened. It was repeatedly pointed out that the HBF representative brings the Foundation’s corporate or ‘institutional memory’ to the other four members of the board. The other four members can choose to ignore the expertise passed through the Foundation’s representative. During this hours-long give and take, Mayor Keyserling — the leading voice for eliminating HBF’s seat — responded to HBF-leaning speakers by citing “transparency,” “state law,” and saying

“there needs to be a clear line between advocacy and governance.” After each speaker had their say almost always there was a rejoinder or rebuttal from the Mayor. But there was another thread that ran through tonight’s meeting. That thread was made manifest by Larry Rowland, and others, who talked about the need to balance economic growth with rules and regulation that protect our architectural patrimony. But tonight Dr. Rowland came down on the side of regulation and in favor of the Foundation keeping its seat on the Historic District Review Board. It wasn’t until late in the evening that Mayor Keyserling revealed he had seen “minutes” that proved the Foundation’s Board had directed its representative to vote in a particular way. This

A selection of area home listings.

revelation seemed to catch everyone by surprise. Keyserling said the dedicated seat had troubled him in 2004 when he led an unsuccessful effort to oust the Foundation’s representative. But seeing the Board minutes confirmed his worst fears; and in his opinion the Foundation had crossed a line. The evening’s last speaker, John Tashjian, acknowledged he was a developer in New York City and he and his wife — the former Katie Cunningham — had recently bought and renovated Tidaholm. He acknowledged that he does not like regulations and has a distaste for review boards in general. Then he told the story of his dock. Tashjian wanted a dock but the Historic Foundation was not keen on his dock. He then made application to the Historic District Review

Board and they agreed that a dock was acceptable and so voted. Tashjian’s point was that the Historic Beaufort Foundation and the District Review Board sometimes disagree. His second point was that his discussions with Maxine Lutz at the Foundation, and the resulting modifications that came after his application, made the dock better. Tashjian did not say that he had flown down from New York this very day, on his own dollar, to testify. But he did say that Beaufort’s historic housing inventory is precious and part of its inestimable value is the fact that HBF has a seat on the Review Board.

Walk With Jesus Exploring the Gospels

The disciples got to know Jesus as they spent time with him.

Reading the Gospels, we experience Jesus firsthand.

Just as we don’t usually share everything about ourselves as we begin to know someone, Jesus did not reveal everything about himself right away to his close followers. They could not have grasped the truth of his identity all at once. As they walk with Jesus and share in his daily ministry, they slowly begin to see that there is more to their teacher and friend than meets the eye.

The Gospels are the four biographies of Jesus, told through the eyes of those who walked with him. As we read the Gospels, we begin to discover Jesus in all of his beauty and mystery. We can see for ourselves how Jesus was like us in every way except sin. At every turn, he surprises us and acts in unexpected ways.

Jesus was unlike anyone they had ever met.

Whether one is a lifelong Christian or new to Christianity, reading the Gospels helps us to encounter Jesus in a new way. A good starting place is the Gospel of Mark, the shortest of the four Gospels. It is action-packed and jumps right into the ministry of Jesus. One can read the entire Gospel in an afternoon, or a little bit each day.

In his friendship and his interactions with others, they glimpsed a soul unbroken by sin or selfishness. As he taught and worked miracles, they witnessed much about Jesus that could not be explained on a merely human level. Little by little, the disciples began to believe that Jesus is somehow God himself, present in their midst as a human being. We can walk along with Jesus and encounter him, too. We can learn a lot of facts about a person, but the only way to actually get to know someone on a personal level is to spend time with him or her. If we want to know Jesus as a person, the best way is to walk with him like the disciples, experiencing Jesus through their eyes.

Why not discover Jesus in one of the Gospels?

Who is this mysterious man, Jesus of Nazareth? As you walk along with the disciples, try to see Jesus from their eyes, uncovering the mystery of his identity. If you are already familiar with a particular story, imagine that you are reading it for the first time. Picture yourself in the scene. What would it be like to be in the crowd, hearing his words and witnessing his miracles? What moves your heart and your imagination as you walk with Jesus?
