CJ Cummings has done it again.

The recent Beaufort High School graduate swept gold at the 2018 IWF Junior World Championships on Monday in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, claiming his third consecutive junior world title. Competing in the 69kg weight class, Cummings hit his first two lifts in the snatch — 136kg and 140kg — but missed his attempt at 145kg, which would have broken his current Junior and Senior American records for the third time this year. Cummings went 3-for-3 in the clean and jerk, finishing with a lift of 176kg for a 316kg total and a 7kg margin over Romania’s Paul Dumitrascu. Cummings also won overall gold at the IWF Junior World Championships in 2017 in Tokyo and in 2016 in Tbilisi, Georgia, but this is the first time he has swept all three gold medals. He’s also a two-time IWF Youth World Championship gold medalist.

63rd annual Beaufort Water Festival kicks off Friday

By Justin Jarrett

The best 10 days of the year are almost upon us. It’s time for the 63rd annual Beaufort Water Festival to return to Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park, which will be the place to see and be seen from Friday, July 13, to Sunday, July 22. The festival has grown leaps and bounds since the inaugural event in 1956 — not only in terms of its popularity, but also in the number of events offered. Back then, a $5 bill would get a couple into all the major events of festival week, which were limited to the beauty pageant, the Water Festival Ball (now known as the Commodore’s Ball), and the Regatta Ball. This year’s festival will include upwards of 25 events, including numerous concerts, fan favorites such as the Opening Ceremonies, Motown Monday, Teen Dance, Talent Show, Blessing of the Fleet, and tons of fun contests such as the Raft Race, bocce and badminton tournaments, the children’s toad fishing tournament, and the always entertaining Bed Race. This year marks a first for the festival, though — it’s the first time a husband and wife both will have served as Commodore. Beaufort native and attorney Stacey Canaday will serve as this year’s Commodore, following husband, Chris, who held the position in 2016. Canaday was a Pirette — one of the team of young women who serve as the festival’s goodwill ambassadors by participating in regional parades and events throughout the

year and assist patrons during the Water Festival — during the early-1990s and has been a volunteer for the festival for the past 15 years. So Canaday knows her way around the Water Festival, but if you’re a first-timer, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind: PARKING Parking is limited downtown on an ordinary basis, but the competition for a space is especially fierce during the Water Festival. Be prepared to pay for parking, whether it’s at a metered space or in a paid lot downtown. Allow extra time to park and walk, or plan on parking at the Beaufort County Government Center and using the free shuttle for select evening events. IT’S HOT! It’s not exactly breaking news that it gets hot in the Lowcountry in July, but seriously, Water Festival seems to come during one of the hottest weeks of the year, every year. Be sure to slap on some sunscreen before you head out and take in plenty of fluids (other than beer and wine) to avoid dehydration. EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY There’s no shortage of food and beverage available at Water Festival, and you can indulge as much as you like while knowing you’re helping support charities such as high school booster clubs. If you’re going to enjoy some adult beverages, though, be sure to drink responsibly and keep the atmosphere family-friendly, and whatever you do, don’t drink and drive.

NEWS NEWS BRIEFS Sheriff investigating home invasion, auto theft

The Beaufort County Sheriff 's Office continues to investigate a home invasion that occurred on Hilda Avenue on Lady's Island early July 7. During the incident, victims reported that multiple unknown subjects entered their home and demanded property and cash. After taking the property and cash, the subjects fled in the victims' 2014 GMC pickup truck. As it was not immediately located, Sheriff 's Office deputies listed the pickup in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) as stolen. Details about the home invasion and the description of the stolen pickup truck were released through NIXLE, local media outlets, and social media. After watching a newscast about the home invasion and stolen GMC pickup truck, a citizen recalled seeing a truck matching its de-

scription parked on Dolly Lane and called the Sheriff 's Office. After the call was received, deputies were dispatched to Dolly Lane and confirmed it was the stolen pickup. The truck was examined and processed for forensic evidence — fingerprints and DNA — then towed from Dolly Lane. The subjects were not located and have yet to be identified. Anyone with information regarding the home invasion is encouraged to contact the Sheriff 's Office at 843-524-2777 or Crimestoppers (1-888-CrimeSC) if wishing to remain anonymous and for possible reward.

Certified delinquent tax bills mailed

The Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office has mailed almost 4,000 certified delinquent tax bills to taxpayers with outstanding balances on their real and personal property. To avoid an additional delinquent fee of

$50, taxpayers are urged to pay in full by Aug. 31, after which all payments on delinquent accounts must be made by guaranteed funds, which are cash, cashier’s check, certified funds, or money order. Personal checks will not be accepted. Taxes must be paid by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, to prevent the property from being auctioned at the Delinquent Tax Sale. Taxes may be paid at one of three office locations, online, by phone, or by mail. Current amounts due can be found on the website or by contacting the office. Additional information can be found on the website, BeaufortCountyTreasurer.com.

One injured in Trask Parkway accident

The Burton Fire District and Beaufort/ Port Royal Fire Department responded to a motor vehicle accident on Trask Parkway on

July 9 resulting in injuries to one occupant and closing Trask Parkway. Just before 11 p.m. Monday, Burton and Beaufort firefighters responded to an accident on Trask Parkway near Calvary Lane. Firefighters arrived to a two-vehicle accident between a Ford passenger vehicle and a Chevy pickup truck. The Ford struck a power pole, snapping the pole in half at the base, with only the vehicle and a pole guidewire stabilizing the pole from falling and causing a potentially serious electrical hazard. The male driver of the Ford was transported to the hospital. His condition was unknown at the time. Fire crews remained on scene until after 2:30 a.m. securing the area until SCE&G arrived to shut off power. Trask Parkway remained closed throughout the morning while SCE&G worked on scene. The Burton Fire District has responded to more than 125 motor vehicle accidents so far in 2018.

Smoke detector saves children in Burton fire The Burton Fire District and MCAS Beaufort Fire Department extinguished a house fire July 7 in which a smoke detector alerted the children and allowed them to get to safety. Just before 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Burton and MCAS firefighters were dispatched to a reported house fire on the corner of County Shed and Rosieda roads. Firefighters arrived to find a single-family home on fire but the family safely outside. Firefighters were able to quickly bring the fire under control, but the family of six was displaced. The resident said she was cooking on the stove when the grease ignited. The two smoke detectors in the home activated and woke the three children, ranging in ages from 1 to 10 years old, and the family of six was able to escape safely. Red Cross was notified to assist the family. Fire officials again state the importance of smoke detectors in the home.

“Cooking fires can be very explosive, as this one was, and smoke detectors provide those extra couple of seconds you need to get your family together and get out safely,” said Captain Justin Blankenship, who was first on scene. Burton officials said they have seen the direct contrast between those homes without smoke detectors, which have sustained severe damages, injury and death, compared to those homes that have them. Fire officials also stress the importance of every home having an ABC home fire extinguisher mounted by their kitchen and near an exit where it is easily seen and accessible by everyone. Extinguishers can be purchased at any local department store. Burton firefighters provide fire extinguisher training for all appropriate ages for free as well as free smoke detectors. Residents needing a smoke detector or who would like training on fire extinguishers can email safetyed@burtonfd.org.

BJWSA takes safety streak into new fiscal year The beginning of the 2019 fiscal year finds Beaufort-Jasper Water & Sewer Authority (BJWSA) celebrating a significant milestone – more than one million safe work hours without an injury resulting in a lost workday. As of July 1, BJWSA’s staff had worked safely 1,163 consecutive days to accumulate 1,047,540 hours, the result of every employee’s commitment to safety and compliance with their robust safety program. BJWSA reached this milestone once before but, due to complacency, made missteps in the workplace that resulted in several injuries. To avoid repeating this, employees are focused on achieving the 2,000,000 safe hours mark. The BJWSA Board also recently approved a five-year strategic plan dubbed “Crystal Clear 2022.”

In the coming year, BJWSA will expedite its galvanized/cast iron replacement program and commit $4M/year for the next two years to fund full replacement of the remaining lines. This program, along with achieving enhanced call center metrics, new metering and bill paying initiatives, enhanced predictive maintenance and asset management strategies, is all tied to the strategic plan. Among the projects currently underway is an effort to divert wastewater from Lady’s Island to the Port Royal Water Reclamation Facility (PRWRF). This diversion of the existing sewer flows to PRWRF will eliminate excessive treated effluent loads currently experienced at St. Helena Waste Water Treatment Plant during the winter months and redirect these flows to PRWRF, where there is adequate effluent disposal capacity.

My Little Red Pinto

The Little Red Pinto I owned was not a horse. It was a car. At the time I bought it in 1971, the Pinto Sedan was a new model Ford had released the previous fall. It was great. It had a vibrant red paint color, with a black interior, four-speed manual transmission, and an AM/FM radio. I perfected my clutch skills in that car on Maryland hills. I recently test drove a new car. It was a different world compared to the old Pinto. I found myself sitting in the car and marveling at all the new gadgets. The new car would have been considered Science Fiction material back in the Pinto days. Most of us are accustomed to power windows and power seats, but the new cars go way beyond those extras. They are electronic wonders. First, I noticed there was no spot for the key. You must push a start button with the key close to you. My first thought was –

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 car is incredible, and I enjoyed all the bells and whistles. But I must admit the best feature is the air-conditioning. where do I put my key after I have pushed the button; in my purse, in the side pocket? What about all those cute key chains I own? Will they become obsolete? How many people depend on key chains to open beer and soda bottles? Then I took a test drive. Suddenly, I felt the steering wheel vibrate. What is going on? The salesman suggested I

refrain from driving on the white line along the side of the road. Evidently the car has a mechanism that sends a vibration through the steering wheel whenever the white line is crossed. It felt like the car was screaming at me, “Pay attention!” “How do I avoid the wind draft from those large 53-foot tractor trailers if I don’t hug the right line?” I asked the

salesman. He did not respond. Then I set the cruise control. I do love this feature especially when driving long trips. But the car kept slowing down and then speeding up without me doing anything. “What? Something is wrong with this car,” I told the salesman. “No, it is the adaptive cruise control,” he said. Turns out the car has another feature. It keeps you at a certain distance from the car in front of you and slows you down as the car you are following slows down. Who knew? When we returned to the dealership the salesman asked me what I thought of the car. As I stepped out into the summer heat, I said, “The car is incredible, and I enjoyed all the bells and whistles. But I must admit the best feature is the air-conditioning.” After all, that is a something never installed in my Little Red Pinto.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A response to the July 5th article about the downtown marina

This is about the city Redevelopment Commission discussing next steps for the downtown marina. We have three local businesses here in Beaufort thriving to offer local kayak tours that are safe, secure, friendly, and successful small-business operators with knowledge of our waterways, tides, and currents. So are we spending money for large operators to come in and compete with small operators like Beaufort Lands End Tours that has two slips at the marina, a floating dock with kayaks and paddle boards, and rents bikes? We have been paying city and county taxes for six years. Why has the city not contacted us — as well as Higher Ground Kayaks and Beaufort Kayak Tours — for our opinion? Why are we wanting to destroy small businesses downtown? Irene Goodnight Owner, Beaufort Lands End Tours

Thank you, Port Royal, for the Fourth of July celebration!

I was hoping you might assist me in a personal Fourth of July tradition. On Nantucket Island I put on their Independence Day festivities for 23 years, and then wrote a thank you letter to our local newspaper, the Inquirer and Mirror. It was a great way to get everyone recognized for all of their hard work. Thank you Van and Brooke, Jeff and the DPW Department from the Town of Port Royal. The town’s government leaders, the mayor and council members, for an incredible start with their patriotic singing of the national anthem. Many thanks to Port Royal Police Chief Beach, Lt. Massey, the Port Royal Police and Fire Department for all their help. The talented band Main Street and JBH Entertainment for keeping it all plugged in. The food and activities ven-

dors, especially the Boy Scouts. Lee Distributors and Triangle Ice for keeping us quenched and cool. Robert from Piggly Wiggly for those AWESOME watermelons. Thank you Beaufort Historic Partnership and Cora for the very helpful van transportation. Huge thanks to the hardworking and fun volunteers including the Beaufort Jaycees. Shawn for great design work and capturing amazing moments. Thank you to this paper for helping to get the word of mouth out, too. I want to thank Patty and Jim Crower for introducing me to Port Royal while giving a new girl in town great support. My patient husband and wonderful, volunteer neighbors Ray, Diane, and Janet. Please forgive me if I somehow forgot to mention your assistance. To end this simply, I just hope that you had as much fun going to this celebration as I had putting it on. Thank you, Port Royal.

JULY 12 - 18, 2018

Expectations generally run high when we have a new wine in our glasses. Something in us just wants to like it, if not love it. This week we have a rosé from southern France, specifically from the Côtes de Provence AOC — the Château des Bertrands Élégance. Château des Bertrands is located at the foot of the Maures hill chain — he Massif des Maures, as it is known in France. Actually, this is a small mountain range located in the Var département, near Fraxinet. The highest peak is just over 2,500 feet above sea level. These mountains are full of chestnut trees. Excellent candied chestnuts are available to the many tourists who come to the area, and there is an annual chestnut festival in October. Also, on the plains of the Maures, the rare Hermann’s tortoise has found a home. Hikers in the area can see them and other tortoises in an area dedicated to their protection. Château des Bertrands is a 500-acre estate situated in this part of Provence. Élégance is one of the estate’s wines. There is a continental climate, with dry, hot summers and cold winters, perfect amounts of sunshine and rain, and a prevailing easterly wind. Variations between day and night temperatures help the grapes ripen fully, but not too quickly. The soil of the hillside vineyards is typical of the Maures hills — stony and made of pink sandstone and sandy earth. The vineyards are well-drained. This wine is a blend of 50 percent Cinsault, 30 percent Grenache, 10 percent Syrah, 5 percent Rolle, and 5 percent various other varieties. Like with other blends, each variety has something unique it brings to the finished wine. Cinsault is tolerant to heat, pro-

duces larger yields, and can be very drought resistant. It brings red fruit flavors (strawberry, red cherry, red berries), perfume and softness, and bouquet Celia Strong to its wines. Grenache has a thick skin and tight bunches on its vines and has a long growing time, making it perfect for hot, dry sand and stone soils. It brings sugar, and with that alcohol, and red and black fruit flavors along with anise and baking spices. Syrah has a punch to it — pronounced red and black fruits, hints of black pepper, and a front-loaded attack in your mouth. All three of these red grapes are often used in blends in southern France and often for rosés. It is worth noting that in rosés, their aromas and flavors can include lighter-colored fruits such as apricots, peaches and citrus. Rolle, which we don’t hear from very often, is another name for Vermentino — a white grape that enhances the acidity levels that are lacking in red varieties and has citrus and mineral notes. All the grapes for Élégance are destemmed before pressing, then juices are selected, decanted, and fermented at 64 degrees Fahrenheit. The finished blended wine is a pale, pretty pink with very light nuances of a peachy shade. It has rich, round aromas and flavors of peaches, nectarines, tangy orange, and some green herbs, as well as lychee and guava. Minerality and acidity are included in the clean, crisp, refreshing finish, along with a bit of black pepper and spiciness. This wine totally pops in your mouth when you taste it. Elegant and excellent for $19.99. Enjoy. Celia Strong works at Bill’s Liquor & Fine Wines on Lady’s Island.

Legion baseball season comes to an end

coached by Eddie Baker and Frank Montejo.

The American Legion Baseball season came to an anticlimactic close last week for the Post 9 Beaufort Ospreys, as the senior team’s final two scheduled regular-season games resulted in forfeits. The Ospreys didn’t have enough players available to play their final road game at Charleston on July 4, and Walterboro forfeited to Beaufort in the Osprey’s scheduled home finale a day later. The senior team, coached by Steven Vega, Wes Anderson, Patrick Talbert, and Al Wallace, finished third in League 1 with a 4-6 league record and missed the playoffs by one game. Post 9 also sponsored two junior teams this season, with the Junior Blue Ospreys, coached by Richard Jennings, Brian Laing, and Al Wallace, going 9-2 while developing players who will move up to the senior squad next season. The Junior Gray Ospreys were

FABULOUS FOURTH Nearly 2,000 people crammed onto the Sands Beach to enjoy good live music, good food, a hot dog eating contest and good old-fashioned patriotism for the annual Fourth of July celebration Wednesday in the Town of Port Royal. Participants were greeted by Janet Mulcahy, who gave out miniature American flags. One could grab a grilled hot dog, a cold beverage, get one’s face

painted with myriad designs, meander down to the beach, or hang out with friends and listen to music played by Main Street Band. Once the sun set, the loud, distinctive boom could be heard across Battery Creek, signaling the start of the fireworks show on Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, which was immediately followed by the fireworks show provided by the Town of Port Royal, resulting in a total of nearly 20 minutes of explosions in the sky.

Volunteers rescue mama loggerhead on Hunting Island

In 18 years as a sea turtle conservation specialist on Hunting Island, Buddy Lawrence thought he had seen and done it all. On Thursday, July 5, he added to the list. A turtle team in zone 4, south of South Beach and nearly to the breach, found a mother loggerhead turtle stuck in a hole under a downed tree. Lawrence believes she was trapped around 3 or 4 a.m. while searching for a nesting area. The same turtle had made three other non-nesting crawls that same night, attempting to find a good spot to lay her eggs. There are already four successful nests in the same area, but this particular turtle was just unlucky. Luckily, Merle Wolfgang, a volunteer in Katrina Rossman’s team, saw the mama stuck in the hole. If she and the

volunteers in her team had not found the turtle, she would have died in the heat of the sun. Lawrence and volunteers Ernie Wilson and Bob Bobko were able to free the turtle and help her return to the sea. Loggerhead turtles can weigh up to 350 pounds, and rescuing a trapped turtle was not an easy operation. The rescue team had to dig the sand out from under her to free her enough to get her up and over the log. The operation took about an hour. The Friends of Hunting Island Sea Turtle Conservation Project’s goal is to protect as many turtles, their nests, and their hatchlings as possible. Loggerhead turtles are threatened in the U.S. and endangered worldwide because of human encroachment of habitat, boat accidents, and nest predation.

GET YOUR BOOM ON

Tommy O’Brien recently retired from the automotive repair business, but that doesn’t mean he’s sitting home in a rocking chair. O’Brien opened Kobuch’s Fireworks, his first-ever fireworks stand, off of S.C 128 Savannah Highway, and he had a steady stream of customers leading up the Independence Day. O’Brien said shooting off fireworks is legal in S.C. and is willing to show the statute to anybody who asks. And he has plenty of things that go boom in the night. “I have sparklers, bottle rockets, mortars, traditional rockets … just about anything that goes boom,” he said as he proudly displayed a rolled package of 4,000 firecrackers. “I’m going to open up for New Years too. I’ll be open for the Fourth of July and New Years every year thereafter.” O’Brien grinned and said, “Come and get your boom on.” From far left: Tommy O’Brien gives a wry grin as he displays a package of 4,000 firecrackers; Tommy O’Brien’s new fireworks stand is off Savannah Highway.

Truth Matters

Around the World Truth Is Universal

There are truths that apply to everyone. For many centuries, people looked around them and assumed that the Earth was flat. Of course, we now know that it is round. The round shape of Earth is an example of a universal truth, one that applies to people of all cultures and backgrounds. Even if some continue to believe that the world is flat, this doesn’t change the reality that the Earth is actually round.

We don’t create truth; we discover it. When we discovered that the Earth is round, we didn’t create its shape. We simply observed the Earth as it truly is. When we write out the multiplication table, we are discovering mathematical principles that have always existed. We are able to discover laws of science and mathematics which exist independently of our personal preferences, feelings, or experiences.

Science and math explore universal truths. Science and mathematics are based on the central premise that it is possible to discover universal truths about nature and the world around us. For example, since chemical reactions are consistent from place to place, we can design car engines that work anywhere in the world. Likewise, “3 x 3 = 9” is a mathematical reality that holds true in every country and culture.

We can seek truth together with mutual respect. When we recognize that universal truth exists, we have a shared position by which we can seek truth together. When two people disagree on a scientific matter, for example, they can discuss the evidence on each side. In a respectful way, they can work to arrive together at a better understanding of the truth. Moral and religious truths are universal truths. We can discover truths which apply to everyone in the areas of faith and morality, too. For example, if humans have a moral obligation to treat one another as persons rather than objects to be used, this is a truth that transcends cultural differences. It is a truth we discover, but do not create. Similarly, if God exists (or does not), this is a reality that applies to believers and non-believers alike. We can seek such truths in respectful discussion. If two people disagree on the question of God’s existence, but they recognize that this is a reality greater than their own opinions or preferences, then they have a foundation for a respectful discussion. There is no reason to attack one another on a personal level. Instead, they can present the reasons for their positions in a friendly manner, seeking to arrive together at a fuller understanding of the truth.

United Way celebrates AmeriCorps members United Way of the Lowcountry recently recognized its AmeriCorps members as the 2017-18 service year drew to a close. AmeriCorps members support the United Way of the Lowcountry Early Grade Reading (EGR) initiative, now referred to as "Read Indeed.” Members serve along with more than 300 community volunteers as tutors in 12 elementary schools and preschools throughout Beaufort and Jasper counties, providing reading assistance to students in Pre-Kindergarten through third grade. AmeriCorps members are a core group of tutors who serve the entire school year. Because they are in the schools several days each week, they provide continuity and stability to the program.

The 2017-18 service year included 28 AmeriCorps members. Some of the members continue to serve during the summer with the summer reading program. Mary Mack, Willie Middleton, and Fran Siegel were recognized as fourth-year members during a recent special ceremony, and Dorothy Edmondson was recognized as the Program Member of the Year. United Way of the Lowcountry is recruiting AmeriCorps members for the upcoming 2018-19 service year, which will begin in September. Members receive a small living allowance while serving, as well as an education award upon successful completion of service. Those interested in becoming an Ameri-

Corps member should contact Carly Grubbs, AmeriCorps Program Director, at 843-8372000 or cgrubbs@uwlowcountry.org.

History Museum to host book signing July 25 Recognized Lincoln scholar Jonathan Putnam will be in the courtyard at the historic Arsenal on Craven Street for a book signing presented by Beaufort History Museum from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 25. Putnam will offer a brief talk and reading at noon, and light refreshments will be served following the talk. The event is free to the public and a complimentary ticket to the museum will be given for each book sold during this event. A former trial lawyer and Lincoln scholar, Putnam continues to impress fans with his combination of mystery and history surrounding Abraham Lincoln in “Final Resting Place,” the third mystery in the author’s “Lincoln & Speed Mystery” series. The novel is inspired by real events and delves into a transitional period in Lincoln’s life. The story begins in the summer of 1838, when Springfield is embroiled in a tumultuous, violent political season. All of Springfield’s elite have gathered at a grand party to celebrate the Fourth of July. Spirits are high until a prominent local politician is assassinated in the midst of fireworks. When his political rival is arrested, young lawyer Lincoln and his best friend Joshua Speed are back on the case to investigate. It’s no ordinary trial, however, as Lincoln and Speed soon face unwelcome complications. Putnam will be available to answer questions and chat about “Final Resting Place” and other books he has written. The book signing is one of many opportunities for community engagement, including lectures, exhibits, art retrospectives, children’s programs, and historic reenactments, many offered free of charge by the museum as a service to visitors and local residents.

ub Scouts from Webelos Pack 209 and Boys Scouts from Troop 201 launched the annual Rain Gutter Regatta on Monday, July 9, at Shell Point Baptist Church using real rain gutters and catamaran boats built from official wooden kits. Each kit came with two hulls and a plastic center to hold them together. A reshaped plastic sail was mounted to the center with a stick. Scouts then used old-fashioned lung power to blow air through a straw to propel their boats through the rain gutter to the finish line. To give everybody a fair chance the regatta was a double-elimination format. The boats used to be carved from a block of soap with the scout’s official Cub Scout pocket knife. The soap already floated and could be easily “sailed” through a trough filled with water. Later the boats were carved from a balsa wood form and raced down rain gutters. Today they come in a kit with catamaran, mast and sail, according to Allison Palfrey, Den Leader for Pack 209. “The scouts just have to sand the wooden hulls and paint them and decorate the sail,” Palfrey said.

Operation Backpack is underway in the Lowcountry Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school supplies, and the United Way of the Lowcountry wants to help remove that burden for local families in need. United Way of the Lowcountry is collecting school supplies and donations as part of Operation Backpack, an initiative of United Way of the Lowcountry Women United that provides local students in need with backpacks full of school supplies and uniform shirts to start school. Women United works with school social workers to identify students in need who are not served by another agency to help fill the gap. Operation Backpack provided school supplies and uniform shirts to more than 600 students last school year throughout Beaufort and Jasper counties. This year, the program is expanding to help nearly 1,000 local students. WANT TO HELP? Women United is collecting the following school supplies, as well as monetary donations and Walmart gift cards.

Children are invited to Tuesday Turtle Talks

Every Tuesday in July, boys and girls and “children of all ages” are invited to Hunting Island State Park to learn all you ever wanted to know about sea turtles. The Friends of Hunting Island will be at the picnic pavilion near the lighthouse at 10:30 a.m. every Tuesday morning to talk about these wonderful creatures and answer all your questions. You’ll learn why and when the mother turtles return to Hunting Island, how they dig their nests and lay their eggs, what happens when the eggs hatch, and what challenges the baby turtles have on their way to the ocean. After the free talks there will be a free optional beach walk to see some nests and how they are kept safe. Sea turtles are so important to South Carolina beaches, and learning about them is a first step in making sure they continue to be protected and keep coming back to Hunting Island and to other coastal habitats. Park admission entry fees apply. For more information, go to the Friends of Hunting Island website or to the Facebook page: FOHI Sea Turtle Conservation Project.
