Randy Wall named next headmaster at Beaufort Academy by John C. Williams

Dr. Randy Wall, a leading longtime educator in Beaufort County and Tennessee, will be Beaufort Academy’s headmaster starting in July, the BA Board of Trustees announced this week. Wall’s background includes being principal at Lady’s Island Middle from 1990-2001 as well as principal at Beaufort Middle and Whale Branch Middle. He helped organize and found the Humanities School of Beaufort. He is known for innovative leadership, inspiring his faculty and for working closely with the community to expand the walls of the classroom into the rich, local community. Wall succeeds Timothy Johnston, who earlier this spring announced his resignation as BA’s headmaster to pursue other opportunities. “We are very excited to make this announcement,” said Herb Gray, who took over the position as Chairman of the BA Board of Directors in February. “The opportunity to have someone so highly respected in the community to guide the learning of our children is more than we ever anticipated when the search began. His (Wall’s) vision fits closely with the ideals of the Board as a group, and with the aspirations of each board member individually. Beaufort is going to witness a new focus at the school and a new presence in the community.” Wall’s strengths include curriculum development and strategic planning, both critical functions as BA looks to the future. During the past three years with the Beaufort County School District, Wall has also been involved at the highest levels with matters of personnel, public relations and governance. Wall, who received his Doctorate of Education in School Leadership from Vanderbilt University, began his career in the Chattanooga, TN, public schools before coming to Beaufort County in 1990. He has served as high school English teacher, junior high assistant principal, middle school principal, assistant superintendent of schools, and academic improvement officer. “I think the Board of Trustees, parents, and staff members

want to see renewed focus on academics and want the school to make a stronger overall contribution to the community,” Wall said. “We want to work together with the Beaufort Academy community to take our place in the continuum of educational opportunities and choices available in Beaufort County. We cannot serve best by offering everything found in other areas of the educational arena. Rather, we will best serve the community by providing excellence in academics as our first and foremost priority. Such is the hallmark of BA,” he said. Wall and his wife, Naomi, live on Cat Island. Prior to moving to Beaufort County in the 1980s, Wall worked in schools in Chattanooga, Tenn. He was Teacher of the Year in 1978 at Kirkman Technical High School in Chattanooga where he was chairman of the English Department. “During all my work in helping to place headmasters, I am not sure I have seen a better fit than this,” said Jim Marks, member of the Beaufort Academy executive board and facilitator of the headmaster search. “We asked Dr. Wall to meet with a wide variety of stakeholders in a variety of venues in recent weeks. In each case his knowledge, focus, and commitment to empowering adults and educating children has resonated with the audience. We are sincerely confident his transition from public to private education will be easy and that the former will complement the latter,” Marks said.

Coosa Elem staff battles fifth graders in annual softball game It’s a rite of spring – just before fifth grade “graduation,” the kids take on the Coosa Elementary staff in a game of good-spirited softball. Ken Dickman, who will teach fifth grade at Lady’s Island Intermediate School next year, took the mound for the staff. Team teachers Ann Lentz and Amy Trask showed their teamwork on the field as well, with Mrs. Trask running for Mrs. Lentz.

Wall holds a Bachelor’s degree in English and American Language and Literature from the University of Tennessee; a Master’s degree in Educational Administration and Leadership, also from UT; and earned his doctorate in School Leadership from the George Peabody College of Vanderbilt University. First established in 1965, Beaufort Academy serves students ranging from three-year-old pre-kindergarten through grade 12. The school is still located on its original campus on Sams Point Road on Lady’s Island.

News Rex hopes federal judge’s ruling will Habitat house lead to faster decisions on stimulus suits keys to be State Superintendent of Education Jim Rex expressed hope Monday that returning two lawsuits to the South Carolina Supreme Court would lead to a faster resolution of issues surrounding federal stabilization funds opposed by Governor Mark Sanford. Although Sanford had wanted both state lawsuits moved to federal court, U.S. District Court Judge Joe Anderson this week remanded both to the state Supreme Court, where they were originally filed. Anderson retained jurisdiction over a third lawsuit filed by Sanford in federal court, although he isn’t likely to hear that case until the state’s top court makes a decision on one or both of the two state cases. The Supreme Court said that it would hear oral arguments Wednesday morning, and Sanford told news reporters that he would not appeal a ruling that he anticipates will go against him. “It’s gratifying to hear that the governor doesn’t plan to delay a resolution by filing an appeal,” Rex said. “We need to resolve this fiasco in a way that doesn’t hurt kids. Every other state and governor is getting this done, and we need to get it done here, too.” Rex has completed and signed South Carolina’s application, which now requires only Sanford’s signature. If that should occur, Rex said the federal funds could be made available in two to three weeks.

“At this point, every day counts,” Rex said. “The deadline to apply is July 1, which also is the first day of the new fiscal year. Many school districts have put their budget processes on hold because they don’t know how many positions they’ll be able to afford. But if they know the money is coming, they won’t have to eliminate as many positions. They can avoid their worst-case scenarios.” A South Carolina Department of Education survey of school districts indicated that about 2,600 jobs, including 1,500 classroom teaching positions, will be eliminated next year unless the state receives the first half of stabilization funds. If South Carolina draws down the money, an estimated 700 jobs could be saved, including 500 teaching positions. South Carolina schools have been hit with nearly $400 million in cuts this year, and absorbing those midyear reductions has left many districts with few alternatives except to consider cuts to their most important assets – their classroom teaching positions. Eighty to 90 percent of a typical school district’s budget is salaries, with most of those salaries going to classroom teachers. At stake in the court battle is $700 million in federal stabilization funds that Sanford has refused to draw down unless the General Assembly agrees to devote an equivalent amount of money to reducing state debt. The White House Office of Management and Budget has twice told Sanford that such a move would violate the intent of the federal stimulus law.

Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity will hold a site dedication ceremony for the recently completed Grayco House on Sunday at 3 pm at the corner of Prince and Hamar Streets in downtown Beaufort. Keys to the home will be presented to homeowner Roberta Peterson. The site dedication ceremony will include a short musical performance and remarks by representatives from Peterson’s church. In addition to donating the funds to pay for the construction of the home, Grayco owners and employees also served as volunteer workers on the building project. The home is the 29th built by Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity since its inception in 1990. Construction began with a site blessing and wall-raising on December 13, 2008 and marks the fourth of five homes to be built on the Prince and Hamar site.

Straight Talk Port Royal and Beaufort ‘Stimulus Package’ The Port of Port Royal was closed in 2004 because of the ports lack of competitiveness with the nearby Port of Charleston. The property by law had to be sold no later than December 31, 2006. Is the state ports authority now breaking the law? The port has not been sold and there seems to be no hurry. The loss in tax revenue (no development, just the sale alone at their asking price) is $415,530 per year, so more than $1.2 million in taxes for the town, school district, and county have been lost. The ports property is currently not on the tax rolls because of its status as a state owned property. What is the hurry of the ports authority? NONE. Potentially after build out, Beaufort County will have an annual return on taxes of approximately $2,230,689 (2008 mileage) of which the town would receive $648,900, of tax revenue along with $648,900 of other revenue according to Randall Gross Development Economics. The school district will receive $1,200,465. What does this mean? Potential reduction of taxes, benefits to schools along with potential for 500 jobs. At a time when local governments are having shortfalls and cutting services, why would someone step to the plate and push for the Port to be sold or give it the town to be developed.

Truesdale named S.C. Superintendent of the Year Following the tradition established by Herman Gaither four years ago, Beaufort County School District Superintendent Valerie Truesdale is South Carolina’s Superintendent of the Year for 2009. She was selected by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators (SCASA). Truesdale will represent South Carolina in the National Superintendent of the Year competition. Truesdale, a long time member of SCASA, has been superintendent of Beaufort County’s public schools since July 2007 and currently makes more than $200,000 annually plus benefits. Gaither earned the honor as South Carolina’s Superintendent of the Year in 2005 after 44 years working in education in Beaufort County. He retired the following year and was earning about $125,000. “Dr. Truesdale is a proven leader who has received numerous national honors for her instructional programs and strategic improvements in the districts she has served. We are honored to have her represent our fine cadre of school leaders in the Palmetto State,” said Molly Spearman, executive director of SCASA, said. The National Superintendent of the Year program, established in 1988 and co-sponsored by ARAMARK Education, honors school administrators based on leadership for learning, communication skills, professionalism, and community involvement. The 50 state Superintendents of the Year, as well as the four national finalists and the National Superintendent of the Year, are recognized at the American Association of School Administrators National Conference. Finalists receive cash awards and medallions. The National Superintendent of the Year presents a $10,000 scholarship to a deserving student from his or her high school alma mater.

A closer look at impact fees on Lady’s Island Courtesy LIBPA Newsletter

Senator Tom Davis recently raised the question of imposing an additional impact fee (other than for transportation, parks and libraries) on new homes in Beaufort County as a way to help pay for the construction of new schools. The question of imposing a fee on each new home and in some cases commercial construction always elicits strong feelings, both positive and negative. In 1999, when impact fees were first imposed in Beaufort County, it was a controversial step designed to shift some of the financial load of providing infrastructure for new growth from the general taxpayer to the new home owner. It must be remembered that once collected, the law requires that impact fees can only be used for infrastructure projects that are needed as a result of the new construction. The Beaufort County impact fees, which have been in existence since 1999, have been collected to help (not totally fund but just help) pay for parks, roads and libraries. Following is a look at the impact fees collected in the county during the period November 1999 through June 30, 2008, how much has been spent, how much is left and the amount that came from Lady’s Island. Parks and Leisure Services (PALS): The County has collected about $8 million in impact fees for parks, spent about $4.5 million and has an available balance of $3.8 million. On Lady’s Island we have collected $542,618 in park impact fees and $2,188 of that amount has been spent on a study for Crystal Lake Park. With the development of Crystal Lake into a passive park and the property on Springfield Road scheduled to be developed into an active park. it is not difficult to see that we on Lady’s Island will receive more than we have contributed in park impact fees. Roads: The County has collected $19 million, spent $16 million and has $3 million as a remaining balance. Road impact fees are identified as coming from 3 areas (1) Northern Beaufort county, (2) Bluffton and (3) Hilton Head/Daufuskie. Northern

Beaufort County collected $3 million, spent $1.5 million and has $1.5 million in reserve. From a strictly local viewpoint, the Lady’s Island Drive/Sea Island Parkway Connector Road project, which is under design, will cost in the vicinity of $6 - $10 million and if approved is scheduled to be paid for from impact fees. The traffic improvements scheduled for the intersection of Sams Point Road and Holly Hall/Brickyard are also scheduled to receive impact fees. Libraries: The County along with the Towns of Bluffton and Hilton Head has collected $10 million in library impact fees of which $6.4 million has been spent leaving a reserve of $4 million. The Town of Port Royal and City of Beaufort have, to date, declined to collect the $533/house library impact fee. The Town of Bluffton was the driving financial force in regard to library impact fees in that of the total $10 million collected for library fees, $8 million came from Bluffton and $6 million was spent on a new Bluffton Library. North of the Broad River we collected about $1.6 million in library impact fees ($940,000 coming from the Lady’s Island/St. Helena area) and have spent only $42,000 on library related projects. If a new library is built on St. Helena at a cost of approximately $6 million obviously impact fees collected from the 2 islands cannot pay for it. Lady’s Island, as the fastest growing area in northern Beaufort County, has contributed a significant amount of impact fees and will receive very generous support from these fees. This highlights why it is unfair and impractical to base support or opposition to impact fees strictly on the basis of “what is in it for me or my area” or “if the money comes from my area I want every dollar to return to my area.” If the allocation of impact fee funds is based only on where they originate, most of the impact dollars will remain south of the Broad River. As a practical matter, the decision as to where impact fees are to be utilized should be based strictly on justified and demonstrated need.

News An Island for all Seasons Historic Verdier House earns new roof grant but needs matching funds Historic Beaufort Foundation received a $28,500 Federal Historic Preservation matching grant by the South Carolina Department of Archives and History for the replacement of roof of the Verdier House. The 205-year-old Bay Street structure, owned and operated by the Foundation, is the only historic house in Beaufort’s National Historic Landmark District that is open to the public year round. Replacement of the current roof, which was installed in 1980, is a critical phase of the ongoing exterior restoration of the structure. In 2008, siding was repaired and the exterior repainted based on the colors that were applied to the structure in the 1850s. Installation of hand-built custom shutters that were designed based on historic photographs of the house was completed this month.  These shutters are designed and built to last for decades.  This work was supported by over $90,000 in contributions by members of the Historic Foundation in 2007 and 2008. The Foundation now must raise an additional $28,500 in matching funds to receive the federal grant to replace the current wood shingle roof.

Will Lady’s Island ever have its own library?

Courtesy LIBPA Newsletter

The simple answer to the question of Lady’s Island having its own library is that such a thing is possible -- but not in the near future. Libraries are built based on the Beaufort County Library Master Facilities Plan. This plan lists the recommended order in which new libraries should be built or existing libraries renovated. It is evaluated annually by the Beaufort County Library Board of Trustees and forwarded to Beaufort County for inclusion as part of the county Capital Improvements Plan. In Beaufort County, libraries and their operation is a function of county government and as such must compete for tax dollars with other areas requiring funding. County Council, as part of the budget process, is charged with making the final decision regarding allocation of funds. The next new library to be built in Beaufort County will be on St. Helena and is on the path to actual construction. As to cost, the new 25,000 square foot library is estimated to cost $7.5 million and if expanded to 35,000 square feet in size to accommodate a Sea Island Research area the price tag is projected to rise to $10 million. Following is the present prioritized list of projects showing location, size and estimated cost for construction of new libraries or renovation of existing ones. - Burton, 28,000 square feet, estimated cost $7.2 million - Renovation of Hilton Head library, 42,000 square feet, estimated cost $10.7 million - Renovation of City of Beaufort Branch library, estimated cost $4 million - Lady’s Island, 25,000 square feet, estimated cost $6.4 million (land not included) - Bluffton, two new 29,000 square foot libraries at an estimated cost of $8 million each plus another $1 million for renovation of the existing library. - Lobeco, renovation/expansion of the existing library, estimated cost $2 million. As can be seen from the above list, Lady’s Island is fourth in line for a library and money for new libraries is anticipated to be in very limited supply for the next few years. So the answer to the question of a new library for Lady’s Island is probably not for a few years.

Beaufort bonnet company makes a splash with online sales If Americans didn’t already know Beaufort from the movies, they’re now discovering it from a simpler source -- a baby bonnet with Lowountry roots and a modern twist that’s being sold online. Just a few weeks out of the gate with their classic baby bonnets and hats, Susu & John, a Web-based company started by longtime local Mary Patrick and her daughter Janie McQueen, has taken orders from Seattle, New York, Atlanta, California, Kansas, D.C.—and Beaufort, of course. The Original Beaufort Button Bonnet is custom made, based on a handmade heirloom pattern Patrick was given when her daughter was a baby. The pretty but practical bonnet has a unique, soon to be patented feature—the crown buttons on, so you can switch out different crowns

and brims to create different looks. “Our baby bonnet combines traditional with a fun, upbeat look,” says Patrick, an expert seamstress who personally makes or oversees the quality of each bonnet and hat. “For instance, a bold print looks smashing with gingham.” Susu & John—named after McQueen’s six-month-old twins—is continually adding new fabrics that complement the existing ones. “You can virtually have a new baby bonnet for every day,” Patrick said. The bonnet is machine washable and can be worn by ages 5 months to 18 months. Susu & John also makes a sporty boy’s (or girl’s) hat, the Beaufort Button Bucke. All can be ordered online at www.

Lowcountry Social Diary Alvesta Robertson crowned ‘Queen of Old Commons’ historic neighborhood by Lanier Laney

Between Old Point and the Bluff neighborhoods lies the friendly Old Commons neighborhood in downtown Beaufort. At this year’s annual fish fry fundraiser, Alvesta Robertson was named ‘Queen’ with Nelle Smith as first runner-up and Michelle Smith as second runner-up. Neighborhood resident Terry Sweeney delighted the crowd as pageant host. Attendees danced the night away to the great music of the renowned local group The Foundation Band. The successful event raised money for historical markers to be placed in front of the circa 1849 Wesley United Methodist Church and the 1849 Berean Presbyterian Church (now USCB Art Studio). Additional monies will be used to stabilize the 130-year-old Sons of Beaufort Lodge, whose members did a great job doing the fish fry.

Special thanks goes to The Baptist Church of Beaufort which kindly provided its grassy Scott Street park for the event and to the members of the Old Common Neighborhood Association who worked so hard to pull the whole fun event together. Ellen Richardson & Hattie Ficklin

Profile Feronica Williams, Lady’s Island Middle Teacher of the Year by John C. Williams

Feronica Williams is a giver. She gives information, she creates knowledge, she shares patience – but she still wishes she could give more. “If I had a magic wand, I would grant my students the opportunity to do and see the world – attend Shakespearian plays, hear an orchestra perform, stay at a five-star resort, watch an opera. Many of these things I have never done but I would love for them to have the opportunity to do these types of things,” she said recently. That’s one of the key reasons she is the Teacher of the Year for 2009-2010 at Lady’s Island Middle, where she teaches eighth grade English/Language Arts. Williams graduated from Battery Creek High School in 1994 and completed her undergraduate degree in Secondary English Education at the University of South Carolina – Aiken. She holds a Masters degree in Literacy and Curriculum Development from Lesley University and currently is working on her second Master’s degree in Educational Technology. “Feronica Williams’ strength as a teacher lies in her ability to garner the respect and admiration of all types of children,” said Lyn Dennis, the English/Language Arts coach at Lady’s Island Middle. “Her students want to work for her and they want to succeed for her. “In high school, Feronica had to hide her books on the bus so that the other kids would not tease her about wanting to study and wanting to learn. Today she is working on her second Master’s degree. She is a wonderful role model to students about the importance of education and where it can take you,” Dennis said. Williams came to teach in Beaufort County when Priscilla Drake and Dr. Randy Wall hired her to teach Language Arts to sixth and eighth graders at the Humanities School of Beaufort, which eventually evolved into the core of Beaufort Middle School. “I was a little skeptical because I really wanted to teach high school (students). But I fell in love with middle school … This year the school has so many things to celebrate, but I was most impressed with the efforts of our administration to give us opportunities to work together, share ideas, look and analyze data, and make decisions based on what’s best for the individual student,” Williams said. Her principal, Terry Bennett, said she makes a difference every day at Lady’s Island Middle. “Feronica Williams cares about each and every student. No matter if the student is taking honors English or regular English -- she wants them to be successful in what they do. She takes them where they come in and makes sure they all advance to their potential,” Bennett said. Williams take a long-term approach to her work. “The best thing about my job is that it affords me the opportunity to keep learning. I learn so much from my students and my peers,” Williams said. “Of course I love seeing my students succeed. I have been teaching long enough to see my students go to college, become teachers and nurses, construction workers, county workers, etc. “The greatest challenge I face is keeping the students motivated. They live in an ‘instant gratification’ world. They don’t always understand that understanding and learning take time and it’s OK if you don’t get it instantly. 14

The Island News

“I thank God that he has afforded me the opportunity to be a teacher,” she said. “I could not have done it without the love and support of my grandmother, who is now deceased, my mother and father, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers, and friends. My biggest motivations are my husband and my three beautiful daughters.” And as Feronica Williams stays motivated, the chances improve for her to share the magic wand of learning. If her students see a Shakespeare play, hear an opera or stay at a five-star resort, all the better. But rest assured, her students come away from her classes having received the gift of knowledge.

News Young musicians hit the right notes, earn scholarships The Beaufort Youth Orchestra performed at the Performing Arts Center on May 7 prior to the Beaufort Symphony Orchestra (BSO) performance. The 42 young musicians performed an arrangement of Rogers and Hammerstein’s Sound of Music. At the conclusion of the performance, the students received a standing ovation. The performance was to honor our public school Principals and music teachers who actively support the arts in our schools and community. Ed Like, the Beaufort Orchestra Board President acknowledged that without our public school string and band teachers Beaufort would not have a youth orchestra. The honorees in attendance were Carole Ingram Principal, Beaufort Middle School; Edmond Burnes, Principal Battery Creek High School; Denise Smith, Principal Robert Smalls Middle School; Joe Wargo, Strings teacher, Beaufort Middle School; and Margaret Rushton, BCSD Arts Coordinator. Greta Maddox, Beaufort Youth Orchestra parent liaison, presented private lesson

scholarships to the Beaufort Youth Orchestra members. The Beaufort Symphony Orchestra gives scholarships throughout the year for both private lessons and college to gifted and talented students. Through the work of the Beaufort Orchestra League and Outback Steakhouse, enough money was earned to help these students continue with private lessons through the summer.  All of these students have made impressive improvements in their skills during the course of this year.

Two special college scholarships were given to students who will go on to study music in college.  Marc Fisher is attending Clemson University in the fall and James Fields will be attending Liberty University.  James has already auditioned and been accepted into their orchestra.  These two scholarships come from a long-time supporter, Mrs. Lee Stevenson.     In addition, the Orchestra has announced scholarships to the gifted and talented Sea Island School for the Arts (SISA) orchestra camp this summer, part of the Beaufort County School District under Margaret Rushton.  The Orchestra is able to offer this scholarship due to the generous donation from the Fripp Friends of Music organization. The following students were awarded scholarships to the summer arts program: Collette Kemmann, Allison Crandall and Tafari Salaam, from Beaufort Middle; and Chris Daigle and Dylan Yagle of Robert Smalls Middle.    SISA is a two week arts camp in July for the artistically gifted student. The “orchestra camp” will be taught this year by Fred Devyatkin, conductor for the Beaufort Symphony Orchestra. The students will spend two weeks with a professional conductor learning about music theory, intonation, sight reading, performance and appreciation.   For information on BYO or to make a contribution to the scholarship fund call Greta Maddox (BSO board member) at 476-1310.

LOCAL HAPPENINGS Summer camp for disabled kids needs donors, volunteers Yoga Chandra Center hosts Camp Treasurer Chest, a summer camp for children with special needs and developmental delays, has managed to survive state budget cuts through the Able organization’s sale of Christmas ornaments, but still needs volunteers and donations, according to Beaufort County Public Information Officer Suzanne Larson.

“Camp Treasure Chest serves children who can’t fit into any other camp situation and gives them a chance to have fun. But, due to the high level of care they require, staffing is intense and increased supervision is needed. We are also seeking cash donations and gift certificates in order to present ‘awards’ to our campers.”

Organizers with the Beaufort County Department of Disabilities and Special Needs hope interested people will sign up to assist the children during camp. Many of the young campers are wheelchair bound, blind, or mentally handicapped. Activities include music, tiedying, storytelling, safety awareness, crafts and bowling.

Wagner said the camp is not only an enrichment program for youngsters who have severe disabilities -- it also provides an annual respite for care-givers who have their hands full otherwise.

DSN Director Mitzi Wagner said the goal is to provide special children with a great summer camp experience.

The six-week program starts June 22 at Robert Smalls Middle School. For more information, call 470-6264. Those who wish to volunteer or donate should call 8462305.

Fishing Tales Women find good luck, good catch on Santee Lowcountry Ladies Melody Whisman, Fran Ferguson and CC Stanley took a little trip to Santee over the Memorial Day weekend. The weather had them worried, however Lady Luck was on their side. They fished with Brian's Guide Service out of Black's Camp. The Ladies obviously had a blast! Hats off to Brian Thornhill for his outstanding service and another successful trip.

Facts, observations and musings about Our Best Friends

Dog training, the new way by Tracie Korol

Dog training is experiencing a paradigm shift. The smart trainers have already abandoned the punishment-based methods of years past for more dog-friendly methods that use positive reinforcement to strengthen the bond between owner and pet. Positive dog training (PDT) means thinking in terms of rewards to mold a dog’s behavior. Positive training is much more successful because dogs, like humans, will keep doing things that are rewarding and stop doing things that are not rewarded or ignored. Positive training is more than keeping a pocketful of treats on hand; it is about controlling consequences and leading your dog to the desired behavior. How does it work? Positive dog training formulas are based on two concepts. First is the idea that if two things happen at the same time, the subject (human or dog) expects one when it sees the other. It’s called associative learning. Ivan Pavlov’s dogs became conditioned to salivate at the sound of a metronome because they associated the sound with the appearance of a meat powder. Many a returning spouse will open the door and begin to salivate at the aroma of a tasty dinner before calling out, “Honey, I’m home!” Same idea. The other concept behind positive training is the use of consequences to modify behavior. This is known as operant conditioning. By rewarding desired behavior and ignoring unwanted actions, we can increase desired behavior and practically eliminate the unwanted activity. For instance, many dogs will jump up on owners, guests and children often frightening, scratching or generally annoying the jumpee. By teaming a simple body movement (no, not kneeing the dog in the chest!) and by simply ignoring the behavior within a couple of repetitions the dog will learn it’s not in his best interest to jump on anyone. The strength of positive dog training methods comes from its ability to separate learning the behavior from learning the command. Simply, PDT associates a stimulus (like a sound, a toy or a high-value treat) with a desired behavior, (like sitting). Once the

desired behavior is identified and can be repeated, the command can be added. First, your dog learns what you want him to do, and then he learns the command for doing it. It’s all about communication. This is what I teach in my practice. Your dog speaks dog; you speak some variation of English. Imagine you stepped off the spaceship on Terra X. You ask the first humanoid you see to take you to their snack bar and the alien stares at you. You wave your arms, point, and gesture and talk louder and the alien continues to stare at you. You become frustrated, perhaps yelling a bit at which point the alien turns and glides away. This is exactly the same thing that happens between you and your puppy. The qualities of clear communication and reward timing combine to accelerate training and focus on the desired behavior. As your dog learns to look to you for leadership, the bond between you and your dog will strengthen. Punishment and coercion, part of the old-style dog training toolbox, often lead to aggression. However, positive dog training methods rarely, if ever, result in aggressiveness or related undesirable behaviors. The use of pain is not found among positive dog training methods. Pain is not required for learning; in fact, pain can actually lower your dog’s ability to learn by increasing his stress. PDT will be more effective, will work more quickly, and it won’t confuse your dog or break his spirit. Training will be fun for you and your dog, and the time you spend together will be an investment in the future. BowWOW! is a production of Tracie Korol and wholeDog.

Dr Grace eliminated silver fillings from the practice 12 years ago. Some of our cases can be viewed on our website, Our staff is the greatest. Terry Johnson, one of our hygienists, has been in the practice for 24 years. We feel it's important to cover after-hour dental emergencies for our patients. Many a weekend, we're at the office with dental emergencies (i.e. athletic injuries to children).

Our field of expertise is general dentistry. We do refer some procedures to specialists as we feel the patient should be in the hands of someone who does that procedure day in and day out. For example, you deserve more than a few weekend courses when it comes to having implants placed. Our staff will work with your insurance to obtain your maximum benefits, many times resubmitting claims if we feel you've been treated unfairly. We have a finance plan where payments can be made with no interest for as long as a year. Dentistry doesn't have to be out of your budget. Advertorial
