Community to celebrate Dr. King’s life, legacy By Sally Mahan

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a familiar face in the Beaufort area, particularly at the Penn Center on St. Helena Island. It was a safe haven and retreat for him until his death in 1968. On Monday, Jan. 16, the Beaufort area and the country at large will celebrate the great civil rights leader’s life and legacy. There will be a parade sponsored by the Beaufort County Ministerial Alliance, which has been organizing the event for more than 20 years. The parade will start at 10 a.m. at the Beau-

fort National Cemetery at Rogers and Boundary streets. It will wind around to Carteret and Bay streets, with many groups marching to show their love for Dr. King and their work on the struggles that are still going on today. Other celebrations include a Community Sing from 6:307:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, at the Penn Center at 16 Penn Center Circle West. This live performance will feature music by local church choirs.

The Beaufort Digital Corridor project formally opens its doors Thursday, Jan. 12, to start helping small technology-related companies take flight. A ribbon cutting will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the renovated and upfitted offices. The approximately 5,000-thousand-square foot facility at 500 Carteret St. is located in downtown Beaufort a few blocks from Bay Street. The Beaufort Digital Corridor is an offshoot of the successful Charleston Digital Corridor, a program started in 2001 that led Fast Company Magazine to dub Charleston “Silicon Harbor.” Charleston is working with Beaufort to develop and put in place systems and solutions to address similar challenges Charleston experienced before founding its digital corridor: attracting technology businesses, raising per-capita wages and keeping its best and brightest workers. The offices, called BASEcamp, will be “Beaufort’s premier business incubator and co-working office designed to meet the transitional professional office space needs of tech and tech-related entrepreneurs seeking adaptable, affordable office and conference facilities of the highest quality, while gaining access to the network of entrepreneurs and professionals in both Beaufort and Charleston,” according to a press release. “Our goal with the development of BASEcamp is to create a modern, highly flexible, welcoming — and oh, by the way, dog-friendly — workplace that allows entrepreneurs to focus on achieving their See CORRIDOR page A7

POLICE BLOTTER New Year’s Day fire threatens home

An outdoor fire, fed by a propane tank, fueled an illegal outdoor fire that threatened a nearby home on New Year’s Day. Burton firefighters were dispatched to a report of a house fire on Glaze Drive, and they arrived on scene to what was actually an illegal burning of a fallen tree from Hurricane Matthew that spread to a nearby shed. The shed was fully engulfed in flames, fueled by a propane tank. The fire was burning within 10 feet of a residence and spreading. The blaze was extinguished before any damages to the home occurred. However, the shed was completely destroyed. Firefighters had difficulty accessing the residence due to fallen trees across the driveway from Hurricane Matthew and had to cut through a chain-link fence to reach the fire. No injuries were reported. The city of Beaufort Fire Department also responded and assisted in extinguishing the fire. Burton fire officials remind citizens of Beaufort County that there is a burn ordinance governing the unincorporated areas of Beaufort County. Citizens living in incorporated areas are strongly encouraged to check with their local fire department for outdoor burning ordinances that affect them. Failure to adhere to any such ordinance could result in legal action and fines.

Sheriff 's office recognizes citizen's heroic actions

The Beaufort County Sheriff ’s Office is crediting a citizen for his heroic actions. According to a sheriff ’s office report, on the afternoon of Dec. 7, 2016, while conducted an investigation on the second floor of the Econo Lodge on Boundary Street in Beaufort, investigators from the Beaufort County Sheriff ’s Office encountered two aggressive men. When confronted, the men attacked the investigators and attempted to push them off the second-floor balcony. They then ran away. A lieutenant assigned to the Sheriff ’s Office Investigations Section responded to the area to assist. He saw the two men in the parking lot near the Kmart shopping center, and when he confronted them, they attacked him. The lieutenant attempted to bring them under control while they threw punches, hitting him in the head. While numerous other bystanders stood by and watched, Craig Reaves took immediate action and came to the lieutenant’s aid. The lieutenant wrestled with one of the individuals on the ground while Reaves kept the other one at bay until backup deputies could A2

arrive and take both into custody. Consequently, two violent offenders are now safely in custody as a direct result of Reaves intervention. “On behalf of the men and women of the Beaufort County Sheriff 's Office, please join us in sharing our gratitude to Mr. Reaves for his heroic and timely actions, without which our lieutenant may have been seriously injured,” according to a sheriff ’s office release.

Local lieutenant graduates from FBI Academy

Christian Gozalez, formerly of the Beaufort Police Department and now a lieutenant with the Bluffton Police Department, graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy (FBINAA) on Dec. 16, 2016. Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program, held at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., offers 11 weeks of advanced communication, leadership and fitness training for selected officers who have proven records as professionals within their agencies. “I’m very proud of Lt. Gonzales. Having gone through the program myself, I know how rigorous the program is, both mentally and physically. Lt. Gonzales is now equipped with knowledge and expertise that will help shape and mentor Bluffton Police officers,” said Bluffton Police Chief Joey Reynolds. Gonzales currently serves as the lieutenant of the Emergency Management and Training Division. He began his law enforcement career as a military police officer in the United States Marine Corps in 1996. After four years, he moved to civilian law enforcement with the Beaufort Police Department. In 2006, he joined the Bluffton Police Department and has since served in the Patrol and Investigations Divisions.

Two wrecks cause rollovers, minor injuries

The Burton Fire District responded to back-to-back motor vehicle accidents on Jan. 3 with vehicles rolling over in both collisions and resulting in minor injuries. Burton firefighters responded to the first wreck just after 8:30 a.m. in front of the Enmark gas station on Trask Parkway. Firefighters arrived to a single-vehicle accident in which the passenger vehicle had rolled over. Both occupants in the vehicle had minor injuries and were not transported for medical care. One northbound land of Trask Parkway was blocked while emergency crews assisted the occupants.

Burton fire crews responded to the second wreck at the intersection of Parris Island Gateway and Mink Point Boulevard just after 9 a.m. The two-vehicle collision between a Dodge Caravan and passenger vehicle resulted in the passenger vehicle rolling over multiple times. The occupants of the passenger vehicle, a mother and two children, who were all properly restrained, were uninjured. The driver of the Caravan left the scene. One lane of Parris Island Gateway was blocked for approximately 45 minutes while emergency crews removed roadway hazards and assisted the family.

Beaufort chamber sets priorities for 2017 The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce recently hosted the 2017 Legislative Luncheon at the Callawassie Island Club, where members heard from elected officials about plans for the 2017 General Assembly. In addition, the chamber presented its 2017 Legislative Agenda. According to Blakely Williams, chamber president, the following are areas that the chamber is focused on for 2017: • Port development: Support the sale and redevelopment of the Port of Port Royal and the creation of the Jasper Ocean Terminal. • Economic development: Support initiatives that help the region attract quality industry and jobs and to expand existing business. The chamber advocates for streamlining the permitting process to reduce the costs of doing business and to eliminate uncertainty that stifles business growth and development. Support utility, Internet and

infrastructure improvements to ensure economic development sites are prepared for new business. • Military advocacy: Expand the Tri-Command's $1.498 billion economic impact by lobbying to maintain and grow our military installations and protect them from encroachment. The Military Enhancement Committee works closely with local, state and federal leaders to retain jobs associated with the region's military installations, and works to support military families and improve their quality of life. • Tourism: Advance the growth of the $1.2 billion tourism industry. The chamber supports dedicated funding for tourism destination marketing, as well as the Reconstruction Era Monument and heritage tourism initiatives in Beaufort County. • Education and workforce development: Support modifying the allocation formula

for public education funding using criteria other than a school system's ability to raise revenue through property tax to a system where all students receive equitable funding.

Support programs for transitioning military personnel to the local workforce and the expansion of public transportation in Beaufort County. • Natural resources: Advocate for beach renourishment and recovery from Hurricane Matthew at Hunting Island State Park. • Roads and infrastructure: Advocate for statewide comprehensive roads and infrastructure reform.

Library joins project focused on literacy

The Beaufort County Library has partnered with The Literacy Center and the University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) to offer classes that teach English to parents and their children ages 4 to 10. Family Literacy 360 is an initiative that uses the Parents and Children Together (PACT) model of instruction, was developed by Dr. Elizabeth Brinkerhoff, assistant professor and assessment coordinator at the USCB Department of Education. The goal is to establish and sustain a network of common literacy services across Beaufort County addressing family literacy and providing skills promoting the growth of English capability within the family. The services are designed to improve language development and reading skills, transforming the home into a more active learning environment. Lessons of one and a half hours in length occur once a week for six weeks. Ten families can be accommodated at each site. The classes focus on reading skills parents can use at home, vocabulary and language complexity growth for both parents and children and adhere to South Carolina State standards. Parents are given a book at each class to read at home to their child and to add to their

Harbor Island, which has one of coastal Carolina’s most important rookeries that provides nesting and roosting habitat for thousands of wading birds, was severely damaged during Hurricane Matthew and needs help with recovery. Of particular importance is a fresh water pond on Kelp Court that has been completely breeched by the storm surge. This breech caused the pond to be completely drained and controlled by tidal flow; the pond has changed from a freshwater pond to a tidal creek due to the loss of a section of the pond berm. The repairs are being financed by a small group of the residents. They estimated $10,000 for the repairs, but final costs are closer to $14,000, and to date they have crowd-sourced approximately $6,000. To help, visit worthwild.herokuapp.com/ initiatives/61. The site will be active until midnight Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Final pass for debris pickup underway for most of county

The third and final pass for debris removal in Beaufort County began recently. The final pass is expected to be complete by the end of February. Marine debris operations are expected to take longer.

Cocktail Affair adds new twist to popular event

Folks won’t want to miss the Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation’s first-ever Cocktail Affair on Friday, Feb. 10. Less formal than Saturday evening’s traditional Valentine Ball – now in its 28th year – it is still an elegant evening featuring fun new events. Guests can enjoy a bourbon sampling courtesy of Gentry Bourbon and Drs. Dan Ripley and Andrea Hucks. Gentry is Charleston's first uniquely crafted reserve batch bourbon and Ripley and Hucks are two of its founding partners. After being distilled in Kentucky, Gentry Bourbon is barreled in charred American oak and brought to Charleston where it is ricked, aged, staved and eventually bottled. “The entire process takes an inor-

dinate amount of time, but that’s what gives our bourbon its distinctive smoothness, and we hope that everyone will enjoy the tasting,” said Ripley. “On behalf of Gentry, we couldn’t be happier to make this donation to the BMH Foundation. As physicians, we know firsthand just how much our hospital means to this community.” To complement the bourbon sampling, the celebrated executive chefs and owners of Breakwater Restaurant, Gary and Donna Lang and Beth Shaw, will be on hand to pour champagne. They’ve selected and donated one of the most recognizable and high end labels, Veuve Clicquot, for the evening, the very one they serve in their own restaurants. Knowing that all of the proceeds

of the Cocktail Affair and Valentine Ball weekend will go to support cancer care at Beaufort Memorial Hospital is especially meaningful to Gary and Donna. She is a cancer survivor who was treated by the hospital, and Gary’s mother is a current patient at the Keyserling Cancer Center.

What would you do to change your life? Editor’s note: “+Perspectives” is back and will be published every other week.

By Chris Suddeth

Recently, I attended a writing clinic conducted by a dear friend of mine, and fellow contributor to +Perspectives column. The first prompt she chose for us was essentially the title of this first column. So, I ask you, cherished readers, what would you do to change your life? I’m not asking you to write about it, although that would be helpful, but I am asking you to consider it as you’re reading this, what would you do? In pondering this question, let’s put a few things aside, like money and going to the gym twice a day, every day. Money was in my rough draft of this too, but seriously, if most people reading this won the Powerball today, the same core issues that plague our everyday lives would still be there. Am I good enough? Am I

attractive enough? Do I work hard enough? Am I a strong enough? Am I considerate enough? Am I cutthroat enough? Am I enough? Whatever makes you feel less than is the answer. What lengths, Chris Suddeth within the legal realm of possibilities, would you go to? As we review this litany of questions, consider a few base assumptions that can often lead to little more than “brain candy.” Changing my life wouldn’t be so hard if I only set the right intentions. But what are the right intentions? Should the duality of right and wrong come into play? Keep in mind, I’m not talking about ethics with this next question. What do you consider right and wrong when it comes to your personal decisions about you? Is smoking wrong or is it merely providing a distrac-

tion to much deeper issues, that when dealt with, allow smoking to become ashes in the wind? You are the only one you can control on God’s green Earth, so do your best to ignore the person on the yoga mat next to you. When did you decide your personal right and wrong? Who influenced this decision? What were their motivations for encouraging or discouraging you and what were your motivations behind your accepting or declining said encouragement or discouragement? Do the current circumstances of your life still apply? You see where this is going? Human nature and the “Mad Men” of our world have convinced us we need to drive a certain car or wear a certain watch no matter the cost. (Be careful with those “no matter the cost, come hell or high water motivations.”) We may even be convinced we need to sign up with a guru to “fix” whatever’s broken within. Gurus have their place, but never sign up with one that promises to fix you. You are the only one that can fix you. You do the heavy lifting and we are merely the spotters. Ultimately, any guru needs to be leading you down the road to self-empowerment and becoming your own guru. When you marinate on what this life change looks like, be visceral in your description. It needs to have a look, smell, taste, texture and sound. Don’t forget that important

sixth sense we all have, but mostly ignore. I understand this article poses more questions than answers, but when you become at ease with yourself, the questions fall away, leaving you with you. When you find you, that is a thing of beauty to behold and foster. In this +Perspective column, it is our collective desire to provoke new lines of thought, reasoning, and action/inaction. As the name suggests, we intend to provide additional or positive perspectives on everyday issues from back pain to pains in the a$$, to birthing babies. Mainstream therapy and medicine have their place, but I feel most of us can agree that there are serious holes that can only be filled by a holistic approach. Don’t take my word for it, just be open to new possibilities in shifting the perspective of your life.

Red Cross has severe winter blood shortage

The American Red Cross has a severe winter blood shortage and is issuing an emergency call for blood donors to make a donation appointment now and help save patient lives. Hectic holiday schedules for many regular blood donors contributed to about 37,000 fewer donations in November and December than what was needed. “Blood and platelet donations are critically needed in the coming days so that patients can continue to receive the lifesaving treatments they are counting on,” said Nick Gehrig, communications director, Red Cross Blood Services. “We encourage donors to invite a family member or friend to donate with them to help meet patient needs. Right now, blood and platelet donations are being distributed to hospitals faster than they are coming in.” Find a blood donation opportunity and schedule an appointment to donate by using the free Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossA6

CrossFit Beaufort donates money from fundraiser

CrossFit Beaufort, a local fitness training facility, donated all proceeds from a recent weight loss challenge to families in need of holiday assistance. Its six week challenge began prior to Thanksgiving and ran well into the Christmas season. CrossFit Beaufort athletes were ecstatic to participate the moment they heard what the proceeds would be used for. The challenge was so successful that the athletes lost a total of 149.5 lbs, and raised a sum of $1,000. The first-place winner, Steven Jeter, and second-place winner, Charlotte Cushman got to select two families that needed help in order to provide Christmas to their families.

business goals while also being conducive to collaboration,” said Ernest Andrade, project manager and Charleston Digital Corridor director. InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology and security services, will be a sponsor of the Beaufort Digital Corridor. “We’re excited to be the first donor and partner with the Beaufort Digital Corridor,” said InterDev CEO Gary Nichols. “As the managed IT services provider for the city of Beaufort, this is a natural extension of InterDev’s relationship with Beaufort and an investment in its citizens and the local economy. “We’re looking forward to having the same technology business growth for Beaufort that Charleston is experiencing with its digital corridor.” “The Beaufort Digital Corridor is the right idea at the right time and certainly the right place,” said Beaufort City Councilman Stephen Murray, a leader in setting up the new project. “Our Lowcountry lifestyle, our outdoor environment, our history and our determination all make us a perfect location for tech start-ups.”

derground for safety and aesthetics, realigning the Boundary and Robert Smalls Parkway intersection and improving traffic signals, including a new signal at Carolina Cove. In order to lay the power and communication cables underground, “duct banks” had to be dug. The majority of that utility work has been completed on the south side of Boundary, but there is still some other work yet to be done. “The wires and poles will be coming down and we are going to demolish the old Sea Eagle Market, the old firehouse and the Huddle House, all on south side of Boundary. Then those spots will be turned into passive park space,” said Neal Pugliese, the city of Beaufort’s senior project manager on the undertaking. A boardwalk will be constructed on the south side of Boundary, and once those buildings are down, there will be gorgeous marsh views. “The views will be absolutely fantastic,” he said. “Then we have to do paving on the south side and construction of center median and put plant life in there. The intent is that when you come into Beaufort it will be a welcoming entranceway. We want to create an atmosphere.” Meanwhile, work on the north side of Boundary has begun over the past few weeks. “The work on the north side is proving much more complicated than the south side,” said Pugliese. “The south side was a complex undertaking, but it was sort of high school-level and early college-level work. The north side can be compared to graduate work. “It’s going to be about the same amount of time, but the level of manpower and coordination is going to be more significant than the south side.” There are a tremendous amount of communication and utility lines underneath the ground on the north side of Boundary Street, making the job of laying the overhead

“With high-speed Internet and all the ways to communicate that didn’t exist 20 years ago, it’s not necessary for most technology firms to be located in Atlanta, New York or other big cities. They can enjoy the Beaufort lifestyle and still get the job done,” Murray said. The Beaufort Digital Corridor follows the lead of the Charleston Digital Corridor, which in 15 years has seen its tech economy grow from 18 companies in 2001 to more than 350 companies in 2015. With an average wage of $69,580, pay at tech companies is almost twice the regional and state wages. “We think there is absolutely a need for this type of incubator, not only to help new Lowcountry tech firms and people operating out of their homes get a good start, but also as a way to attract start-ups from other areas of country where it might be below freezing this time of year,” Beaufort City Manager Bill Prokop said. “New businesses often need support and guidance to survive and then thrive, and that’s what the Beaufort Digital Corridor team will provide,” he said. “Their work in Charleston has been tremendously successful.” The Beaufort Digital Corridor program manager is Karen Warner. She can be reached at info@beaufortdigital.com, 843470-3506 or via the website at www.beaufortdigital.com. wires very complex. “And, the north side is all businesses,” said Pugliese. “So when you’re constructing the duct bank you have to navigate sewer, water, gas, communications, etc. There is a whole lot that is underneath the surface, making it an incredible undertaking. “It’s been essential for the utility companies to cooperate and coordinate and we’ve seen a level of that that is emblematic of the attitude of the Lowcountry.” Meanwhile, businesses remain open and the city is trying to accommodate them as much as possible. They receive weekly updates on the construction and the city is working with businesses to address any access problems they may have. “Of course it has been an interruption to businesses,” said Pugliese, “but we’re working with them and if there’s something we can do to help mitigate some of the issues we’ll get on it and try to accommodate them. The city and county are very pro-business and we want to do right by the businesses.” Drivers are also continuing to see backups, as has been true throughout the construction. However, Pugliese said they are trying to do as much work as possible at night to reduce the traffic issues on Boundary Street. And despite the way Boundary Street looks now, with orange barrels everywhere, everything is coming together. “It’s very, very rare that you find something on time and on budget, especially looking at what happened with Hurricane Matthew. If it were it not for the storm we would have been ahead of schedule.” The project is scheduled to be complete by February or March of 2018 barring any unforeseen circumstances. “Ultimately, it’s going to be aesthetically pleasing and it will be a safer street,” said Pugliese. “There will also be smart streetlights so that traffic is better regulated. “There will be frustrations and disruptions and we’re looking forward to getting this done, but in the long run it will be so much better for the community.”

THE BEST OF BOB SOFALY: 2016

Photographs are often called the window to the soul. Being able to capture a range of emotions, environments and events takes patience and timing and knowledge about the community — skills longtime photojournalist Bob Sofaly has perfected. After graduating from the University of South Carolina College of Journalism in 1980, Sofaly went to work at The Beaufort Gazette until his retirement as photo editor in 2011. Sofaly has received local, state and regional awards in photography during his 36-plus years as a photojournalist in Beaufort. “I didn’t think there was that much news to cover in Beaufort,” Sofaly said of the early days. “The first year I took second and third place and an honorable mention in the ‘spot news’ catego-

ry from the S.C. Press Association.” Shortly after leaving the Gazette he began working for The Island News as a contract photographer and won three more awards with the SCPA. Sofaly’s more notable awards include Photo of the Year in 1999 from the SCPA and three separate Mark Twain awards for spot news coverage from the Associated Press. Since those early days, Sofaly has won nearly 30 awards for his news, sports and feature photography. Sofaly and his wife of 40 years, Sheila, have lived in Shell Point for more than 33 years. “I don’t see us leaving anytime soon,” he said. Here is a look at some of Sofaly's best photos for The Island News from 2016.

The Beaufort Academy boys' basketball team pulled off an emotional win. On a night when Head Coach Chip Dinkins was absent due to having emergency open heart surgery less than 14 hours before tip-off, Beaufort Academy outlasted familiar rival John Paul II 70-68 at home in an important region matchup. Dinkins was definitely on the minds of players, fans and coaches throughout the night, with the packed gym chanting "Chip, Chip, Chip" throughout the contest. It was an emotional contest for the host boys' high school basketball program. Beaufort Academy assistant Coach Izell Sutton stepped up and filled Coach Dinkins' role on the Eagles' bench with Beaufort Academy Athletic Director Neal McCarty filling in as an assistant coach. Three Beaufort Academy players reached double figures in the scoring column. Kevin Williams paced Beaufort Academy with a game-high 30 points in the triumph. Joining Williams in double figures for the Eagles, Luke Harper contributed 14 points and Dawson Coleman posted 12 points as part of the victory. With the win, Beaufort Academy improved to 6-2 overall and 2-1 in the region. At the conclusion of the game, following the final buzzer, both boys' high school basketball squads met at half court and formed a prayer circle for Dinkins. McCarty confirmed that Dinkins was showing gradual improvement following his surgery.

SCHOOLS

Holy Trinity Classical Christian School sends meals to ‘Feed the Need’ Typical school fundraising efforts, like selling wrapping paper and magazine subscriptions, did not seem like the right fit for the Holy Trinity community, not with so many hungry people in the world. And so, the community came together—administrators, faculty, staff, parents and students—to reach out from the land of abundance to the land of need. Beginning in September, Holy Trinity parents launched the school’s second annual fund campaign with the new addition of “Feed the Need,” a family-led fundraising initiative. The parent body connected with friends, relatives and the Lowcountry business community, raising money for both the Love to Learn, Learn to Love Holy Trinity annual fund, as well as to purchase, prepare and package some 10,000 meals to be sent to the people of Haiti who were affected by a devastating earthquake early this fall. According to Holy Trinity Board Member and Advancement Chair, Brenton Bozard, "The Feed the Need parent led fundraiser was a wonderful opportunity to serve a need in Haiti, as well as raise funds for Holy Trinity's annual fund that supports the school's faith based tuition policy, striving to keep tuition in reach for Beaufort families." While the campaign was energetically moving forward in Beaufort SC, Hurricane Matthew raked Haiti with Category 4 winds, claiming 473 lives and leaving a trail of destruction that deprived the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country of food, clean water and shelter. Now faced with an even greater need, the Holy Trinity parents redoubled their efforts to collect money for the Haitian people. Working together, the students and their families raised $114,993 for the “Feed the Need” campaign and boosted the number of meals from 10,000 to 16,500.

"It was an honor working hand in hand with the Holy Trinity families to benefit the people of Haiti and Holy Trinity," says Andrea Cooler, the FTN event director and a parent herself. "It was a humbling experience watching God's hand work throughout our fundraising efforts. Only through God could we have exceeded our fundraising goals by such margins." Holy Trinity Classical Christian School provides 275 students with a distinctly Christian and classical education. Holy Trinity is the result of a long-standing commitment to education by the Parish Church of St. Helena, beginning in 1748 with the founding of the first free school in Beaufort, SC and later in 1801 by the donation of 20 acres of land for the establishment of Beaufort College, resulting in what is now the University of South Carolina Beaufort. The current student body of Holy Trinity is comprised of families from over a dozen Christian churches of various denominations.

VOICES

An uninvited guest makes an appearance A few days before Christmas, my spouse heard a knock at the front door. He opened it up and then slammed it immediately. I heard him shout, “Quick. Lock all the doors. Pull down the shades. There is an unwanted guest out there.” I peeked out the window and didn’t see a thing. “What are you talking about?” “It’s a cold. I feel it,” he said. “It’s knocking on the front door!” We went into action. We swallowed down Airborne pills (a blast of Vitamin C to ward off the common cold) and drank hot herbal tea. I also made a pot of chicken soup for us. It worked at first. We could keep the common cold at bay and enjoy our company during the holidays. Then just as we were putting away the Christmas decorations and celebrating

Now what?

HIGHLIGHTING DAILY LIFE OBSERVATIONS

Lee Scott, a writer and recent retiree, shares her everyday observations about life after career. A former commercial banker responsible for helping her clients to reach their business objectives, Scott now translates those analytical skills to her writings. She recently moved to St. Helena Island with her husband and two cocker spaniels. She enjoys boating, traveling and reading.

the New Year, it happened: My spouse woke up with a sore throat. “He’s here!” he shouted. I scrambled out of bed, popped in a few more Airborne pills, made some turkey noodle soup and pulled out the cherry throat lozenges … to no avail. The cold came on him with a vengeance. Before you knew it, he had Vapo-rub

out and boxes of tissues everywhere. In the meantime, I washed my hands raw with anti-bacterial soap and changed the air filters in the house, anything to make sure I did not catch the cold. Before long, my medicated spouse started walking around the house reciting an old Dr. Seuss poem that I did not recognize. “Marvin K. Mooney, Will you please

GO NOW. The times has come, the time is now. Just go, go, go! I don’t care how. You can go by foot, you can go by cow.” Anyway, you get the idea. He was seriously ready to have his cold end. So, with cough syrup in hand he headed back to bed muttering about Marvin K. Mooney, while I continued to scrub everything he had touched. Then I found myself muttering to our uninvited guest myself. “The time has come, the time is now.” A few mornings later, he wandered into the living room with a cup of coffee in his hand and a smile on his face. “Now I am ready to recite the last few lines of the Marvin K. Mooney story.” he said, “The time has come. So Marvin went.” At last, our uninvited guest was gone.

City to annex golf course, Lady’s Island businesses By By the Lady’s Island Business and Professional Association

Just before Christmas, the city of Beaufort announced that it was annexing Secession Golf Course on Gibbs Island. The annexation consists of a club house, golf course, 15 member-owned cottages and 30 vacant residential lots. Also to be annexed are 10 businesses along Sea Island Parkway. The businesses include two banks (Wells Fargo and CBC National), the Filling Station, Butler Marine, a Shell gas station, the former movie theater adjacent to the high school, Zippy Lube, a dentist office, the Packing Shed (next to the Walmart site), and across the street, the property at the intersection of Lost Island Road and the Sea Island Parkway (the Dive Shop). These annexations will be open to public comment at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, in the Beaufort City Council chamber at Beaufort

City Hall. Are these annexations good or bad for the Lady’s Island community or do they make any real difference? Before answering the question of how the proposed annexation affects Lady’s Island, a bit of history is in order. The city of Beaufort has been annexing property on Lady’s Island for a good number of years. For example, in 1999 it initiated annexation of Cane Island. It announced the proposed annexation on a Monday and on Tuesday the City Council took the first vote on the matter, causing a great deal of animosity between Beaufort County and the city. The annexation of Cane Island led to annexation of a portion of Distant Island and eventually the present Walmart site. Since the Cane Island annexation, Beaufort has annexed other properties in the La-

dy’s Island Village Center. In an effort to reduce animosity over annexation between the county and the northern municipalities, the Northern Regional Plan was developed. One of the key things the plan accomplished was the establishment of municipal growth boundaries in which annexation by municipalities was authorized. Lady’s Island is within the city of Beaufort’s growth boundary and thus annexation of property on the island is proper and legal. The present city administration prefers to annex only commercial property, but this could change with another administration. The recently announced annexations will increase the number of Lady’s Island businesses within the city of Beaufort. The relationship between the county, Lady’s Island and the city of Beaufort has significantly improved since 1999.

PLANNING PLANNING PLANNING PLANNING

Whether the proposed annexations are good or bad for Lady’s Island depends on the attitude of the city of Beaufort in regard to provision of services. If, in spite of not every business choosing to be in the city, the city takes the high road and cleans the streets and sidewalks, increases the level of police presence, considers traffic impacts of its actions and plans for a general upgrade of the commercial portion of Sea Island Parkway, it will be a very good thing. Beaufort County is not organized to provide municipal services of this type and is not going to provide them. If, on the other hand, Lady’s Island is looked at simply as a source of revenue for the city of Beaufort, there is no benefit to the community in general from the additional annexations. Time will tell.
