being strictly enforced. I also am not a fan of farming out the City’s leadership and business to committees. Certainly holding the line on taxes and expense is important. We also need to effectively market and sell the old City Hall and Carnagie Library. Qualifications: Having served two terms, I am very familiar with the process. I have the experience and ability to “hit the ground running.” My record shows I never voted for a tax increase. I, along with Gary Fordham, voted against the Clarendon Plantation annexation. I still feel this was the right vote and was what the overwhelming majority of the citizens wanted. I will also work with our close friends and Beaufort allies, The Marines.

Rotary Club of the Lowcountry, the Lady’s Island Professional Business Association (LIBPA) , the Baptist Church of Beaufort, and the Kiwanis Club of Beaufort. Local issues you feel passionate about: I see the challenge for the person filling this vacant City Council position to be that of growing the city in a positive way. This can be accomplished by working with the University of South Carolina to grow the university in Beaufort. Upgrades need to be made to the park in the Northwest Quadrant and improve facilities including the rest rooms. In order to complete the development of the new park and recreation area in Mossy Oaks, I would work with Ron residents in the Mossy Petit Oaks area. I can continue to improve communication and cooperation with the county, the Town of Port Royal, and work with business owners to bring new and expanded services to the city while reducing the red tape when doing business with the city. Also, I know that improving communication by listening to those who live in the city is of major importance. Qualifications: I am confident I can bring new thoughts and ideas to the city and I ask for the support of those who can make that happen.

Race to the Top is penny-wise and pound-foolish U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recently announced another round of “Race to the Top,” a federal program that offers quick, one-time cash infusions to state and district administrative offices. In exchange for these dollars, “winning” states dance to Washington’s tune on education. When the music stops and the money is exhausted, states will be left on the dance floor and paying for their rides home. This is an all-too-familiar occurrence with federal programs, and it is one of many reasons I did not support Race to the Top as a candidate and will not sign an application as State Superintendent. A key question when it comes to education funding is always, “What will you do with the money?” It may shock some to know that Race to the Top funding would not have paid for teachers, teacher supplies, school buses, or classroom computers. Rather, it would have paid for new employees at the South Carolina Department of Education and in district offices, contracts with out-of-state education consultants, rented office space, travel expenses, and even $96,000 in box lunches. Shortages of administrators, office space, and box lunches are not our problems in education, nor will more of them improve student achievement. This is yet another example of how no amount of taxpayer money can quench the thirst of the education establishment. While there isn’t a silver bullet to fix our problems, I’ve proposed several solutions to transform education. The state should streamline the funding formula so that funding follows the child to the public school of their choice. This is a more efficient model because it focuses on the students served by a school, not programs offered. Parents

Mick Zais is the South Carolina State Superintendent of Education

This federal money will not solve our short-term problems. and students should have a full menu of schools to choose from so they can find classrooms that best meet their needs. High school courses should be more closely aligned with the world of work to make learning relevant to careers. Effective teachers should be compensated for their excellence in the classroom; ineffective teachers should have an opportunity to improve, and those who remain ineffective should be removed. Accomplishing these goals will require a significantly smaller footprint from Washington. The original Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was written on 32 pages. No Child Left Behind, the eighth version of ESEA, is more than 600 pages long. Federal mandates largely drive the way South Carolina hires and certifies teachers. Schools attempting to meet the federal accountability measurement, called Adequately Yearly Progress, are labeled as failing even if they meet every benchmark except one. A school that has 21 goals “fails” if it meets 20. That isn’t a failing school; that is a successful school with some room for improvement, which is common sense. These mountains of federal regulations cost teachers and taxpayers enormous amounts of time and money.

The Office of Management and Budget estimated in 2006 that federal education laws cost states 7 million work hours in paperwork and $141 million, just for compliance. Make no mistake; the federal dollars South Carolina receives today are intended to offset these costly mandates. In some cases, such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Washington pays for only 20 percent of its mandate, half of the original promise. Education in South Carolina will improve if Washington will get out of our classrooms. Sen. Jim DeMint and other reformers have proposed the Academic Partnerships Lead Us to Success Act, or A-PLUS Act, which would free states from many unnecessary and costly regulations. In exchange for regulatory relief, states would sign a performance agreement with the Secretary of Education to meet certain student achievement goals. This is the reform we need in education, and I wholeheartedly support Sen. DeMint in his effort. The Race to the Top program expands the federal role in education by offering pieces of silver in exchange for more strings attached by Washington. This federal education money will not solve our problems in the short term. In the long-term, it will require South Carolinians to spend more on nonclassroom activities. Schools need less, not more federal intrusion if they are to increase student achievement. The previous two rounds of Race to the Top were not competitive grant programs; they were top-down directives forcing states to adopt programs favored by Washington. Respectfully, South Carolina will not apply for this money. It would be penny-wise and pound-foolish.

Thankful for a great year at Beaufort Elementary As we close this academic year, I wanted to share some of my thoughts and impressions of the 2010 – 2011 school year. It is my honor to be the Principal of Beaufort Elementary. We have experienced much success this year and grew as a school family. I believe Beaufort Elementary is a great place to learn, and we have the potential to be even better. I cannot possibly thank everyone in this letter who has volunteered, contributed, or supported our school because there are so many people. Whether it was coordinating and selling, or monitoring students, or volunteering for after-school events, or serving in the Learning Commons, or whatever, I thank everyone who has given of their time, talents and treasures to support and improve our school. We turned in 4.5 two gallon bags of pop tops to Ronald McDonald house. We also made $234 in box tops for education.

Jennifer Morillo is the principal of Beaufort Elementary School.

We also raised 1,876 points from soup labels for education. We could not possibly operate without the support of our parents and volunteers who give with a generous loving heart. 

Our students continue to sail into success and represent Beaufort Elementary in a positive manner in extra-curricular activities and in the community. We have a unique blend of diverse personalities and talents here. People really do care about each other. We are making a difference in the community. Our mission statement declares, “The mission of Beaufort Elementary School, in partnership with Beaufort County

Schools, parents, and community, is to prepare children for a successful future by providing access to knowledge, skills, and experiences to achieve academic excellence and personal growth in a safe, positive and diverse environment.” We remain committed to that mission of serving our families. Our number one priority has been and always will be ensuring each child learns. We have decided to continue focusing on improving our school climate during the 2011 – 2012 school year. Our theme for next school year will continue to be “Sailing into Success.” We also must say goodbye to 67 wonderful fifth graders. We will miss our fifth grade students as we know they are well prepared for middle school and ready to move on. Our fifth graders provided leadership in and outside of the classroom and will sincerely be missed. Thank you for helping to make this school year

such a great success.

Please know that everyone who had the honor of teaching and working with your children here at Beaufort Elementary School is very thankful of your commitment to education. We thank you for your support. We thank you for your openness and honesty. We thank you for your care and commitment. We thank you for your hours of volunteering. I trust what we do will continue to have a tremendous impact on our students and families. Beaufort Elementary is a great place to be and I know we will continue to work together to make it even better. I know all of you are looking forward to a nice summer break and I hope you find time to relax, rest, and spend quality time with family. I look forward to the 2011 – 2012 school year with great anticipation and hope for another outstanding year filled of student success.

Have a safe and wonderful summer!

Library system reduces hours due to loss of staff Effective Monday, June 6, hours were reduced at most of the branches within the Beaufort County Library System as part of the county’s effort to deal with loss of staff. Currently, the library system is short 21 positions; reduction of public service hours will allow the library to provide services in light of the loss of 25% of its staff. Library administration developed the new public service hours schedule based upon current customer usage patterns so as to minimize the impact to the community. The Library Board of Trustees approved the new schedule and the South Carolina State Library, as required by statute, granted a waiver. Library branches in Beaufort and Hilton Head will be cut back from 60 to 40 hours per week. They will be open Monday and Wednesday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 1 p.m. to 8

p.m., Friday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All branch libraries in the system will be closed on Sundays. The Lobeco branch will remain open for 40 hours each week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The St. Helena branch, located at St. Helena Elementary School, will remain at 22 1/2 hours with no change in hours. It will be open Monday through Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m., closed Friday and open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The new St. Helena Branch Library project will continue to move forward toward a completion date of November 2012. For more information on the schedule change and on other library activities,visit www.beaufortcountylibrary. org. The site provides continuous access to information, calendars, databases and the online catalogue.

book store opens at beaufort library A long-time dream of the Friends of the Beaufort County Library has become a reality. Through the efforts of Library Director Wlodek Zaryczny and the downtown Beaufort library branch staff, the group has established a new, gentlyused book store in the former Beaufort District Collection Room, located on the main floor to the right as you walk into the Beaufort library. Current hours of operation are Tuesdays from 4-8 p.m. and Fridays from 1-5 p.m. Friends of the Beaufort County Library contributed more than $39,000 last year for unfunded programs, materials and equipment at the Beaufort, St. Helena and Lobeco branches. Those dollars came from fundraisers, such as the annual fall and spring book sales. FOL hopes to add the funds raised from the year-round Gently-Used Book Store to their annual contribution.



While the annual fall and spring book sales will continue, residents and visitors can now purchase books year-round as opposed to twice a year. According to Book Store Manager Geni Flowers, there is a large selection of excellent quality, gently-used books in a wide variety of interests. All books in the store are those donated by residents and visitors to Beaufort; and, the shelves are continually re-stocked with donated books, offering affordable prices starting at just 50 cents. For more information, call 843-812-3574.

A rendering of the desired streetscape for Midtown Square, located downtown in the Northwest Quadrant.

MIDTOWN SQUARE to bring vitality to northwest quadrant


By Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer

teve Tully, Allen Patterson and John Trask III have hit the nail on the head. And, yes, that pun was intended. Developers Tully and Trask envisioned affordable homes with a focus on a walking community on land situated between Adventure and Bladen streets, 2 acres they purchased in 2006 in an area known as the Northwest Quadrant. They met with third generation builder, Allen Patterson and initiated a plan to make efficient use of the dirt, located one block from the Beaufort River and a short distance to all the shops and restaurants downtown. The sustainable infill project, called Midtown Square, holds 22 lots, 16 residential properties and six flex properties, which can be used as residential or work space on pads facing Bladen Street. The property also features the 1912 offices of Coastal Contractors, and that structure likely will be rehabilitated, Trask said. It’s what Generation X’ers and Baby Boomers have been looking for downtown, with amenities within walking distance, all public and free. It’s far from the suburban master planned communities with costly regimes and homeowner association-supported extras. And even better, not a tree was cut nor an ounce of asphalt poured to create Midtown Square.

Continued from Page 6 Additionally, what is remarkable about this project is the swiftness of its launch. Steve Tully did in six months what most need 18 months to complete. He diligently and diplomatically collaborated with many parties to secure a base plan for his idea. He met with city officials and board members, the Office of Civic Investment, BJWSA, SCDOT, SCE&G, Beaufort County Open Land Trust and the Lawrence Group to secure the initiative in a costeffective and timely manner. A $1.3 million streetscape plan for Duke, Prince, Bladen and Adventure streets has been approved. Utilities are supported, and the neighborhood is excited about the improvement.

Survivor’s Day at Keyserling Cancer Center


ast Sunday, which was National Cancer Survivor Day, many came out to the Keyserling Cancer Center to celebrate with thousands of other Americans who have beat the disease. “Today, a diagnosis of cancer is not a death sentence,” said Constance Duke, cancer program director for Beaufort Memorial Hospital. “More than 60 percent of patients are cured of cancer, and the statistics are getting better every year.” Since BMH opened the cancer center five years ago, the Duke-affiliated facility has treated more than a 1,000 patients with a variety of diseases, including lymphoma, colon, breast, lung and prostate cancers.

Sweetgrass Music Festival — All for the Kids Hundreds of people, both locals and visitors, came out last Saturday to listen to the sounds of the Beaufort Sweetgrass Music Festival. Five bands participated in the benefit concert for the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA). The music spanned the generations playing rock-and-roll classics from the 60’s and 70’s on through the 80’s and 90’s. The all-day concert featured music by The Groovetones, The Mr. Bill Band, Snazzy Red, Brandon Hage, Eric Daubert, and Audioshot. Some of these musicians used to frequent Bailey’s and the Canteen, some of Beaufort’s old hangouts from the 60’s and 70’s. There was even a nationally recognized sweetgrass basket weaver, Vera Manigault, on site giving sewing demonstrations of her treasured baskets throughout the day. “We really appreciate all the bands coming together to help CAPA. It was their talent and generosity that made this event possible. Many volunteers spent a lot of time organizing this event, especially Susan Wester, volunteer event coordinator, and Kim Torrey. The business community really pitched in to help cover the expenses. We are thankful for a fun event and thoroughly enjoyed listening to the local musicians,” said Susan Cato, CAPA’s executive director. Countless CAPA volunteers came out

Just go with the flow By Martha O’Regan

You’ve heard the phrase “just go with the flow” but have you ever stopped to feel what it means to you? We know that everything in all of creation is energy: energy is always flowing, and energy is either attracting or repelling other energies. So, let’s look at life like a flowing river with some days running faster or more chaotic than others. If we continually face that river by going against it, we’ll get tired and cranky. But if we just go with it while navigating the obstacles with grace and ease, we can actually enjoy the ride. Sounds easy enough, but what about those rocks that we get slammed up against, the wrong turns or the roots that come out of nowhere to snag us? Let’s consider that maybe we attracted those rocks and roots into our life, to slow us down, to teach us not to go that way or to show us what is getting in the way of a more enjoyable ride. What if we truly create our reality? Remember that we are energy beings having a physical experience and that every thought, word and deed is an energy that is either expansive or contractive, attracting or repelling, high frequency or low frequency, etc. Therefore, energetically, we have the ability to manage every second of every day just by the choices we make in our perception of that moment. To simplify neuroscience, if a thought or action is negative, it has a contractive, low vibratory frequency. Conversely, positive thoughts or actions are expansive, high frequency energies. We are each an assortment of such frequencies based on our entire life experience. Every experience that has ever occurred is stored in our brain with a feeling and correlating frequency that we put on it in the moment. We know that often, a single experience can create multiple perceptions based on what each person brings to the situation. Each person stored the same experience, yet under different files that could be anything from fear to

gratitude. Our perceptions are based on the structures and beliefs that were formed early on and, contrary what others may say, are never wrong. They may not resonate with the energy of your structure and belief, but beliefs are never wrong. We have been so programmed to judge everything as right or wrong, good or bad, and want others to share the same belief. But the fact is, energetically, every experience is neutral or “just is” until we put a judgment on it. Once we judge it, we attach a frequency to it and it gets stored in our mind for future reference. Even if we never consciously retrieve it, it continues to put out a frequency. Let’s imagine that individually, we are dialed into our own personal radio station based on the multitude of frequencies that we are made up of. That radio station emits a frequency that attracts people and experiences of like frequencies, i.e. friends, the phone call from someone you recently thought about, an inspiration, etc. Likewise, those who are not “dialed in” are repelled or are harder to attract, i.e. enemies, financial freedom, the job that you really wanted, etc. Maybe life isn’t a coincidence after all. There is a beautiful symphony always playing out in the universe (one song) and we are each a part of its harmony. The more often we can choose to “just be” in or find the good or the lesson in each experience, the more we can just go with the flow and enjoy the ride. You decide. Live Well ... Have Fun!


Beaufort Memorial celebrates infection-free ICU The Intensive Care Unit at the hospital has now maintained a clean record of bloodstream infections for two-and-a-half years.

By Marie McAden

Zip. Zero. Zilch. Not one patient in the last 30 months has developed a bloodstream infection in Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. It has taken a concerted effort by staff and physicians to win the battle of the bugs — a problem that continues to plague hospitals across the country. Bloodstream infections are introduced through central lines, an intravenous catheter used to deliver medication, nutrition and fluids to a patient. The thin, flexible tube is inserted into one of the large veins deep in the chest near the heart. “When you break the skin to insert these devices, you’re making it easier for organisms to enter the body,” said Beverly Yoder, RN, Beaufort Memorial’s Infection Prevention Coordinator. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 248,000 bloodstream infections occur in U.S. hospitals each year, leading to longer hospital stays, higher costs and an increased risk of death. “With central line infections, germs are transmitted throughout the body via the bloodstream,” said Diane Razo, RN, director of critical care for BMH. “It’s a very serious condition that can affect vital organs.”

From left, Mimi Glenn, RN; Andrea Davis, Unit Secretary; Erika Cathey, CNA; Renee’ Pritchard, RN; Shayne Pitts, RN; Diane Razo; Karen Carroll; Megan Dean, RN; and Bev Yoder.

To reduce the number of infections caused by central lines, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement developed a series of evidence-based practices physicians and nurses should follow when inserting and maintaining a central line. Beaufort Memorial implemented the recommendations in 2006. The hospital purchased special central line kits that contain everything needed to insert the catheter in a sterile environment, including the prescribed antiseptic, full-body sterile drapes,

sterile mask, cap, gloves and gown, as well as a checklist to follow. The staff was trained on how to use the kits, where to insert the lines to minimize the risk of infection and how to properly change the dressings. In 2009, BMH went a step further and joined the “On the Cusp: Stop BSI” campaign, a national initiative endorsed by the South Carolina Hospital Association, to stay abreast of any changes to the multi-faceted interventions.

“We used to change the dressings every day, but now they’re recommending every seven days and sooner if needed,” Razo said. “It’s based on evidence that has proven to reduce the risk of introducing infections.” The hospital’s infection preventionist performs random spot checks to ensure compliance of the practices. In addition, daily reviews are conducted by staff to determine the necessity of each central line. “The longer a catheter stays in, the greater the risk of infection,” Yoder said. “We want to be sure they are removed as soon as possible.” In the past, Beaufort Memorial’s Intensive Care Unit had gone as long as nine months without a patient developing a bloodstream infection. It’s now been two-and-a-half years the ICU has maintained a clean record. “Bloodstream infection rates have come down across the country,” Yoder said, “but going this long without an infection is rare.”

Can the da Vinci robot really shorten recovery time? Just ask Kathleen Linn, who simply did not want the weeks of “downtime” she expected while recovering from major surgery. Kathleen was thrilled to learn the physicians at Beaufort Memorial use a state-of-the art da Vinci robot surgical system for gynecologic procedures, which enables the surgeon to perform the most precise, minimally invasive procedure available today. That means less pain, less scarring, and days — rather than weeks — of recovery. - Kathleen Linn Lady’s Island, SC

Navigating todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy By Charles Tumlin

While changes in the economy occur regularly, what we have experienced recently is anything but a â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? change. The challenges of the current economy havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been seen or experienced in our country in decades. Like most investors, you may wish you could figure out some way to know when economic conditions were about to change, or what adjustments you should make in your portfolio based on current conditions. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tricky topic, and even economists disagree about the nature and causes of economic cycles. But we can at least take a look at some of the issues you need to be aware of, and help familiarize you with how the economy works. Advance or expansion When times are good and the economy is growing, we typically see indications such as falling unemployment rates and factories taking advantage of excess capacity, to name a couple. While the news during this phase is typically positive, you may soon start to see signs of problems ahead. If inflationary pressures begin to creep in, this is typically when the Fed raises interest rates in an attempt to help keep the economy from overheating.

Peak By the time we get to this point, the economy tends to be operating at full employment, factories have generally used up their excess capacity, and inflationary pressures are usually building. When rising labor and materials costs squeeze companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; profit margins, the Fed will usually move more aggressively in an attempt to slow growth by raising rates to help ease inflationary pressure. Decline, slowdown or recession Ideally, action by the Fed to tame inflation should allow the economy to gradually adjust to a sustainable longterm growth rate without the threat of inflation. In reality, however, the combination of the Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tightening and the need to correct accumulated imbalances in labor and materials supplies typically slows growth to a level thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually below the economyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-term potential. Unemployment rises, factories slow down, and inflationary pressures ease. Trough At this point in the cycle, inventories are depleted. The Fed lowers interest rates in an attempt to help stimulate the economy, and businesses and homeowners may consider refinancing mortgages to take advantage of lower rates. Companies will

As you can see, there are some telltale signs that can at least give some idea of where the economy is in its cycle. However, to make matters more complicated for you as an investor, the stock market tends to move in advance of the economy, usually in response to investorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; anticipation of what they see down the road. The biggest challenge is knowing when the shift to the next phase will occur, because predicting the market and the economy is a bit like forecasting the weather.

Delights of the drive-in


don’t know what it is about going to the drive-in movie theater, but it’s a positively transporting experience. Before the movie starts, this familiar scene unfolds: families and friends sit and laugh together, kids run around merrily, boys throw footballs, the smell of popcorn and fried comfort foods fills the air. It’s reminiscent of a simpler time. Once the movie starts, it’s all about eating snacks and being captivated by the giant screen. If you sneak a peek upward, you can’t miss the covering of stars above, which adds to the beauty of your surroundings. My husband and I recently had date night at the drive-in. We went to see “Kung Fu Panda 2” and “Thor,” not because we were particularly interested in those movies (although both were entertaining), but because we hadn’t been to the drive-in since last summer. And I forgot how much I love it! At $6 per adult for two movies, the price just can’t be beat. I almost feel bad about paying so little (almost!). We always make up for it though by raiding the awesome, old school snack bar. Popcorn, soda, candy, cheese fries, hot dogs, funnel cake — it’s easy to go overboard, but it’s a totally worthy calorie fest. Joe and Bonnie Barth have owned the

One of the family members, Don Seagraves, said, “We really give it 110 percent.” Their efforts pay off, especially during the summer when people flock from all over the Lowcountry to see the blockbusters hit the screens. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this fun, unique opportunity. Be sure to bring bug spray, chairs and a reliable portable radio. Or you can stay in your car, like we did for date night, there’s something very romantic about it. Soak in the entire experience.

Because I don’t look good in orange jumpsuits It has been one of those days. I have two choices: 1. Tell everyone what I really think (and subsequently be shot, incarcerated and/or committed) 2. Make a joke out of the whole thing (and subsequently feel some sort of relief, justification and/or free group therapy). I don’t look good in orange jumpsuits, I don’t like being shot, and could never survive in a rubber room. Therefore, my sense of humor is all I have left. To all my fellow Realtors, sellers, and the ever-coveted buyer, may you smile amidst the battles, and take some comfort in redefining these commonly used real estate terms: 1. Short Sale — A transaction in which the Realtor puts an endless amount of work, effort, sweat, blood, and many wasted days that is anything BUT

a “Short” sale. The seller wants to sell; the buyer wants to buy. The bank can’t remember where they put the paperwork. 2. Foreclosure — This is where some Realtors are allowed to channel their creative side. No appliances, carpet is less than “clean,” the AC/heating unit may very well be running down the road in the middle of the night, the guy who determines the price is in another state, another time zone, and — often can be argued — another planet. Photographs require a bit of imagination. MLS description?!?! Shakespeare himself would be challenged, and then the search for who really has the keys (if there is still a door). 3. Under-contract — Hmm. Once upon a time this had a positive connotation. Now under-contract simply

Cherimie Crane is a local Realtor and bride-to-be.

means somebody wants to buy something but nobody knows how much it is really worth; not even the appraiser. So now under-contract can also be described as overwhelmed, over priced (according to whomever doesn’t matter or for all parties involved, simply OVER IT! 4. Negotiations — Basically whatever you can’t do and can’t give, prepare to do and give immediately, not once but twice. 5. Closing — If you are able to make it to this event, everyone is so mad,

frustrated, worn out, and simply unsocial it has a striking resemblance to your first cousin’s wedding. Security may be required, first aid kit advised. Yet we continue. We continue to be the whipping post for a population so beat down. We continue to smile and encourage when there is no smile or encouragement left. We continue the long winding road towards a Short Sale, the aftershock of Foreclosure, and the anti-climatic close. Then we go home to realize someone drank the last bit of wine. @%#$!!!!!! How can I joke about the brutal reality? It is quite simple. If I don’t joke about my career, I will cry. If I cry, somebody is getting punched; which takes me back to my original point — I don’t look good in orange jumpsuits.

Kay and John Hines celebrate their 50th anniversary with their three children.


Our Royal Pines neighbors, John and Kay Hines, recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Their children, Amy, David and Carrie along with their spouses Tim and Jeannie and grandchildren, Thomas, Shane, Jordon, Madison and Jack were on hand for a weekend of festivities. John and Kay met subsequent to John’s inquiry of Kay’s sister, “are there any more at home like you?” There was! And a plan was made for them to meet at a community pool. They began dating as Kay could not resist a “man in uniform.” John was a drum major at Marshall University. After a long courtship, they were married in the small town of Kenova, West Virginia, on May 26, 1961. They settled in Huntington, W.V., where they raised their family. After their marriage, John completed his education at Marshall University where he achieved his BA in Journalism and Advertising along with MA in speech. Fifteen years ago, in search of a warmer climate, John and Kay decided to move south after visiting Kay’s sister, who lives in Beaufort County. They decided to settle in Royal Pines and moved into their home on Moultrie Drive to begin their life of retirement. The couple stays active as John plays golf twice a week, Kay bowls weekly and is currently learning to play bocce ball so she can compete in the bocce tournament

at this year’s Beaufort Water Festival. John was active in the Royal Pines Homeowners Association and a board member for nine years. John and Kay both enjoy the Beaufort Waterfront swinging in the swings, people watching, in addition to the activities surrounding the Naval Air Station. In 1995 John and some friends competed in a fishing tournament and he still holds the Virginia state record for the largest (99 lbs) tuna caught. John and Kay additionally give back to their community as volunteers at Health of Beaufort Mobile Meals, where they make deliveries to needy residents. I asked John and Kay for the secret of their marriage. John claimed to always say “please,” “thank you” and “yes, ma’am.” Kay told me “a day doesn’t go by that we don’t tell each other I love you.” Kay asked, “Right John?” And John replied, “yes ma’am,” and it seems to be working beautifully for them.

In third grade, I entered into a nationwide traffic safety poster contest that was sponsored by the American Automobile Association. The poster I drew showed a very disproportional drawing of kids playing soccer (yes, soccer) away from traffic, separated by a house drawn at a different perspective angle than other items. In spite of my major transgression, the poster managed to come into second place in New Jersey’s statewide competition before being awarded the best poster in the nation, much to my surprise. Shows the level of respect New Jersey has in traffic related matters, apparently. So what did I do with my $125 prize? Did I spend it on art supplies or lessons or a summer camp experience? No. I bought a Sega Genesis video game system, of course. You see, being an artist was kinda uncool among boys growing up in my town, and in countless others across the country. The cool kids in our age group were supposed to be interested in sports and video games and nothing “artsy.” Within a few years, in an effort to tag along with the in-crowd, I had dropped my interest in visual art, gave away my saxophone to charity, and didn’t bother to attend any plays or performances. Only the weirdos and sissies did those things. It didn’t matter that my teachers saw potential in me to develop those skills. All that mattered is that I fit in, which to a certain degree, I did. Since moving to the Lowcountry, I have begun to reconsider how I come to appreciate art. Peer pressure and teenage stereotypes just don’t seem to matter much anymore. Friendships are established based on personalities and not on pursuits. In my cherished friendships in this town, I am fortunate to count football coaches, politicians, business owners, and retirees as friends, among others. They have enriched my appreciation for Beaufort and its people. However, one group of friends has surprised me more than others in their contributions to Beaufort’s social scene — the artists. The artists in this town have significant respect and face dire circumstances on a daily basis. They bask in pride as Beaufort is named one of the top art towns in the country due to their efforts, yet have to fiercely mobilize other efforts to protect financial support from the public. They have faithfully painted the vast landscapes and abundant wildlife of the Lowcountry while many of their peers scrape by to pay their rent in the galleries on Bay Street. They have performed countless productions of American classics on stage yet were stung when their main organization literally robbed them. Despite it all, they still produce things of beauty that capture the human imagination. I will admit that without these friends, I would not have gone to seen “Our Town” last weekend at ARTworks, or have strolled past galleries during the Art Walks that the Guild puts together. I also admit that I don’t consider myself a connoisseur of art. I will testify that I can recite winners of sports championships and losers of political scandals better than I can discuss Tony Award winners and French transcendentalists. My trivia categories on Thursday nights too often neglect art, and when it comes up, the complaints come in from many who play. But my hope is this: Perhaps one day I can fully come to appreciate art for what it is and how it contributes to our lives and to the community that we love. Perhaps the cool kids will one day have a similar experience.

The village that was home to Native Americans for over 3,000 years in Beaufort County will be the topic of Historic Beaufort Foundation’s Dinner & a Lecture, Monday, June 27, from 5:30 – 7 p.m., at the Verdier House, 801 Bay St. Dr. Eric Poplin, archaeologist and cultural resources manager, will discuss recent excavations at the site of Altamaha Town in Okatie and data recovery from digs at the Comabahee River on U.S. Hwy. 17, near the location of the Harriet Tubman Bridge. A ferry at that location was the predecessor to U.S. Hwy. 17. Altamaha Town, mentioned in early documents as the head town of the Lower Yamasee tribe was home to 1,200-1,500 Native Americans during Beaufort’s earliest development as a town itself, 1695-1715. Archaeological evidence indicates the site was occupied from at least 1500 B.C. to 1715 based on various pottery types recovered during testing and excavations. The site contains at least two preYamasee period burial mounds. Poplin’s research at Altamaha Town revealed that the town was not a compact,

easily defensible community as might be expected, but was instead a village composed of dispersed households spaced seventy-five to one hundred meters apart over an area of as much as 125 acres. Approximately 40 houses were once present at Altamaha Town. It was listed in the National Register in 1994. Thirty percent of the town is within the boundaries of Heyward Point, a development on the Okatie, and the remaining land was purchased by Beaufort County through its Rural and Critical Land purchases. Open to HBF members and nonmembers, the lecture series takes place on the second floor of the Verdier House, and features a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The talks are presented from 6-7 p.m. followed by audience questions. A three-course dinner at Saltus River Grill is offered at $19 per person for attendees at the lecture. Admission to the lecture is $15/$25 per member/ member couple respectively, and $20/$30 per non-member/nonmember couple respectively. Call 3793331 to make reservations.

Speckled trout off species list for tournament The Beaufort Sportfish & Dive Club has amended the species list for the 2011 Beaufort Annual Fishing Tournament. SCDNR has recommended that anglers release all speckled trout, also known as Winter Trout, due to the winter kill-off of trout that occurred this past winter.

The species has been removed from the list of fish eligible for weigh-in during the tournament, which has no entry fee and runs from January 1 to December 31 every year.
 “With the extremely low numbers of trout being found in local waters, the

tournament directors decided it was just the right thing to do. Hopefully they will quickly recover and will be back on the board for 2012” says Club president Bo Von Harten. “There are, however, almost 30

oyster reef restoration



outh Carolina’s Department of Natural Resources’ SCORE Program will be bringing shell and organizing volunteers on Monday, June 13, at noon for the sixth year of constructing oyster habitat on Hunting Island. Students from AMIkids will assist in the Oyster Reef Restoration Project at Russ Point Boat Landing on Hunting Island (before the Fripp Island Bridge). This labor-intensive project requires 70-80 volunteers to transfer recycled oyster shells from land to boats, and then again from boats to nearby reefs. Volunteers should wear closed-toed shoes and dress weather appropriate. SCORE staff will provide tools needed for the project. For more information, please email

Results from the SC Governor’s Cup Billfishing Series The second tournament in the 23rd season of the South Carolina Governor’s Cup Billfishing Series took place at the 44th Annual Georgetown Blue Marlin Billfish Tournament over the Memorial Day weekend at the Georgetown Landing Marina. Amy Dukes, Series Tournament Coordinator for S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR), noted that a total of 33 boats participated in the tournament with 45 billfish releases including 6 blue marlin, 30 white marlin and 5 sailfish. No billfish were landed. “There is an incredible billfish bite right now off the South Carolina Coast! There were more billfish released during this weekend’s Georgetown Tournament then have been released in the previous 23 series tournaments hosted in Georgetown.” A special recognition award, the Wallace Pate Trophy, was presented by the Georgetown Landing Blue Marlin Tournament to Jim Johnston for all his years of billfish conservation. Wallace Jenkins, Series Program Director for DNR, added

that “Johnston has participated in all of the 44 Georgetown Tournaments and was a major contributor in establishing billfish release practices during fishing tournaments that are still in use today.” The Outstanding Billfish Boat was awarded to Sportin’Life, owned by Manly and Graham Eubank of Charleston and captained by Mike Glaesner. The boat crew caught and released a white marlin on Thursday, and surged to a victory by releasing two blue marlin and another white marlin on Saturday to accrue 1,800 total release points. Second place for Outstanding Billfish Boat went to Daymaker, owned by Mark Daniels. Jay Weaver captained the boat, which caught and released four white marlin and one sailfish to accumulate 1,400 release points. Miss Wy IV won third place for Outstanding Billfish Boat. The boat is owned by Ed Holder and captained by Matt Wilkinson and the boat crew caught and released one blue marlin and two white marlin to earn

other eligible species that anglers can weigh-in at Port Royal Landing Marina, including inshore species such as red drum and whiting, and offshore species such as dolphin and wahoo,” Von Harten said.

1,200 release points. Outstanding dolphin was awarded to Billy Monckton for his 38.4-pound landed dolphin caught aboard Mirage, owned by Bill Monckton and captained by Homer. Angler Charlie Byars fishing on the Reel Patience won the Outstanding Wahoo award, with a 12.6-pound fish. The boat is owned by James Zachrich and captained by Stefan Patrick. Wil Thornhill won the Outstanding Tuna award aboard Bench Mark, owned by Stephen Davis and captained by Bobby Garmany, for his 10-pound Bonita. First place for Outstanding Lady Angler went to Holly McAlhany for releasing two white marlin aboard Syked Out. Second place for Outstanding Lady Angler went to Amy Bennett on Rodeo who also caught and released two white marlin. Keenan Grayson won third place Outstanding Lady Angler aboard On The Hook for her 27-pound dolphin catch. Six-year-old Rance Jennings won first place for Outstanding Youth Angler for an 11.2-pound dolphin catch aboard Sadie Beth. Second place for Outstanding Youth Angler went to John Taylor aboard Caramba for catching a 6.6-pound dolphin.

South Carolina residents born on or before July 1, 1940, are eligible for the Gratis Hunting and Fishing license. South Carolina residents born after July 1, 1940, and over the age of 64, are eligible for the $9 Senior License. South Carolina hunters and anglers remain the state’s top conservationists.

A spotlight on fabulous local restaurants; entertaining musings from the Happy Winos

The Lunch Bunch hits the open water and relaxes on


my time out

he Lunch Bunch took a break from the norm and relaxed on My Time Out last week, a fishing boat owned by Captain Frank Gibson. Captain Gibson invited Kim, Elizabeth and I for a boat cruise along the Beaufort River to inaugurate the unofficial beginning of summer and fishing season. It was the perfect spring day, with temperatures in the low 90’s, humidity at a comfortable level and a steady breeze coming off the water. We were accompanied by Tennent Houston from Lands End and Captain Sonny Ellis from Bluffton. They were so helpful as soon as we boarded and took care of us the entire trip. Captain Frank Gibson owns Fishing Charters of Beaufort, an outfit that specializes in quarter-day and half-day local water charters, all-day Gulfstream charters and entertainment cruises on his 47 foot Cabo. We left the Port Royal Landing Marina at 10 a.m. and traveled south along the shores of Cane and Cat islands, Bermuda Bluff and Lands End to our port side. We turned around at Bay Point and navigated alongside Parris Island and Port Royal with Hilton Head in clear sight. With Kim at the helm, we came back under the bridge after passing the Naval Hospital and cruised by Spanish Point, Verdier Bluff and Beaufort Memorial Hospital before turning around again. The day was just incredible. Elizabeth went by Publix before we departed and got the boat’s crew a bunch of subs from the deli. We devoured Italian, Cuban and Ultimate subs while on board. In my opinion, there is no better quick stop than Publix to get all your boating needs before a day out in the river. If you’re headed to any of the St. Helena Island landings, Coosaw or Brickyard Point, definitely stop by Publix for chicken, subs, beer and snacks. A boat trip can be an all-day affair, and it’s important to be “un”nutritionally prepared. 24

the island news | june 9-16, 2011 |

Ingredients • 4 pounds fresh mahi • 2 cups all purpose flour, seasoned with 1 tablespoon dried oregano • 8 eggs and 1 cup milk, beaten together • 1 quart Panko breadcrumbs • 4 lemons • ½ pound butter • 3 tablespoons capers • ½ bunch chopped parsley, washed, dried and chopped fine • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • 2 pound well washed fresh spinach • 2 cups vegetable oil Directions Slice the mahi very thin, on the bias, into 16 equal parts. Dip the mahi into the flour, then dip into the egg, then dip the mahi into the bread crumbs. Set on a plate or tray and refrigerate. Squeeze the juice from the lemons. Just before starting to pan fry the mahi, place the butter and lemon juice in a small pan and melt over low heat. When emulsified, mix in the capers, and parsley. Set aside and keep sauce warm. Heat oil in a large pan until fairly hot, and sauté fish in batches until nice and brown. Place on a plate in a warm oven until all are cooked. While the fish is cooking, warm the wilted spinach in a dab of butter and season with salt and pepper. Plate a mound of spinach, and place two mahi fillets on top of the spinach. Spoon the sauce around the bottom of the plate. Repeat this process for each plate. Yields: 8 servings.

A Pain in the Glass By Terry Sweeney

It was bound to happen one day. I knew the dark secret I kept carefully hidden inside my oh-so-innocentlooking kitchen cabinets would one day rear its ugly mug, or more appropriately, raise its stemmed glass freak flag for the whole world to see. OK I admit that sounds a tad melodramatic but I am still recovering from that Day Of Shame! A Napa valley winemaker and all around hoity-toity viticultural highbrow called to tell me she was in town. Since she had never been to my house, I invited her to have wine and cheese on my porch later that afternoon. Quickly I put together a small party of local wine aficionados, went shopping for three bottles of a fabulous French white Burgundy (a 2004 Louis Jadot Chapelle Aux Loups) and carefully chose several baguettes and a lovely wheel of Petit Basque to accompany them. Everything was perfect ... or so I thought; till I opened the cabinets to set out my wine glasses. (cue sound effect: High Pitched Scream) Not one of them matched!!! (Years of drunkenly smashing them, kicking them, elbowing them and dropping them to their deaths had taken its toll!) A tall, short, big bowled, and highand-low stemmed gang of stemware reprobates stared back at me. Apparently they were still bitter at my having massacred all of their mates and finally they were to have their revenge. I slammed the door in the accusing faces of this glass menagerie and desperately tore open another cabinet. Aha! More glasses! I’m saved! Quite quickly I realized I spoke too soon.

Terry Sweeney

The real irony is I’m actually a wine glass elitist. If someone hands me a glass of wine and it’s in a blue or green colored glass, I have to force myself to keep from spitting it out and hurling the empty glass out of the nearest open window.

The first odd-shaped glass I spied was inscribed with the words “We’ll miss you Sid” (had he died or retired?! I couldn’t remember) Another was a short stout glass that was actually a brandy snifter and doubled as a vase on occasion. I imagined my soon-to-arrive California wine expert nick naming me “Brandy Winewriter” to gales of derisive laughter from her fellow Napa Valley wine snoots. The next glass I pulled out had a red bowl with a fake gold rim, a green stem and a blue base. Good God! I’d gladly return that one to its owners but I swear I don’t know anyone that tacky ... Do I? Out came further waves of embossed stemware promoting things like The Hilton Head Wine Festival, Charleston Food and Wine Festival, The Savannah Wine Expo, etc. Apparently, if I keep attending wine festivals for the next 20 years, one day I’ll have a lovely set of mismatched festival ware that is sure to dazzle anyone who may drive past my yard sale. Finally I found my one good wine glass. Yes! I’ll give her this one. But I better wash off the faded lipstick stain on it first — gross!! I got it off all right with lots of soap and elbow grease. So much soap in fact that the glass slipped through my wet fingers and landed in

the sink shattering into a million tiny pieces. What did I do next, you ask? I called her up and told her the “truth” of course — that I’d totally forgotten I’d had a kitchen fire the night before that wrecked all of my wine glasses. “They were so beautiful” I sighed, “Each one was one of a kind. Let’s meet at a bar.” Whew! She bought it. But still, this is no way to live. I’ve got to get a grip on my wineglass breakathon otherwise I can never have nice wine glasses again. I’ll be stuck with this bunch of clunkers forever, or worse, be doomed to one day drink my wine out of empty Hannah Montana jelly jars. The real irony is I’m actually a wine glass elitist. If someone hands me a glass of wine and it’s in a blue or green colored glass, I have to force myself to keep from spitting it out and hurling the empty glass out of the nearest open window. A Happy Wino friend of mine says her pet peeve are thick glasses. “I hate

the heavy Bavarian cut crystal ones my mother-in-law has. I chipped a tooth on one of those monsters last Thanksgiving.” Yet I’m not as big a wine glass snob as some. An uppity French wine expert once confided to me that he was such a purist, that soap had never touched his wine glasses. “It alters the flavor of the wine,” he sniffed arrogantly (which of course confirmed my deepest suspicions — those filthy, filthy, French!) I think I better bring my own glass from home if I ever decide to visit his Chateau des Germs. And, yes, I know this is so petty, but I secretly envy people who own the full spectrum of Riedel wine glasses. It’s just the pure unadulterated greeneyed monster that grabs hold of me and I should be ashamed. Yet, instead, whenever I meet one of those lucky Riedel Richy Riches I am tempted to say just casually in passing, “Did you know Riedel was the Fuhrer’s favorite? He made it the official glass of the Nazi party. What? You didn’t know?!” (Of course it’s a total lie.) What a stinker, you are thinking. And you’re right. I get out my “We’ll miss you Sid” memorial wine goblet and console myself with the fact that, in truth, it’s the wine that counts, not the glass. I must be growing up. I lift my glass in a toast — Here’s looking at you, Sid!

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol, or find a furry friend to adopt

Watch out for hot paws The next time you take a trip to a big box store in the middle of the day, park on the far end of the parking lot. Slip off your flip-flops and walk to the store. Chances are you won’t get too far before you slip your sandals right back on, or dance quickly over to a grassy area. Because asphalt is black it absorbs rather than reflects the heat from the sun. In fact, a study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine noted that 35 seconds of exposure, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., to hot asphalt pavement could result in second-degree burns to the exposed area. That shouldn’t be surprising, given that on sunny summer days, the temperature of pavement can easily reach 300 degrees. For a dog forced to barefoot it over such a surface, the result can be painfully burned paw pads. Or, take off your shoes and hop up into the back of your pickup in the middle of the day. Chances are you won’t spend too much time up there, either. We prudently do not allow our toddlers to play on the slide at midday for fear of searing their backsides, but we load our dogs into the bed of a pickup to go for a ride. Can you even imagine how painful it is to stand on what is essentially a hot frying pan? Notice, next time you attend one of the local festivals, how uncomfortable the attending dogs are as they wait patiently beside their humans. These dogs, while you may think are having a great time on an outing, are standing barefoot on hot pavement, sometimes for long periods of time. While a dog’s paws are the toughest part of his skin, they still need protection from heat, just like yours do. A day at the beach is not much fun for your dog, either, especially if he is not inclined to get wet. Hot sand can scald


Facts, observations and musings about Our Best Friends

The best advice is to be mindful of hot surfaces like asphalt and metal. Put yourself in his place just for a few minutes: how would your bare feet feel? Walk your dog on the cool, shady side of the street or in the grass. paws. Even heading down the metal boat ramp for a family day at sea can fry Fido’s feet in minutes. Unlike obvious wounds such as lacerations, foot infections (fungal, bacterial or foreign bodies like stickers and thorns), burned pads may not be readily apparent to the eye. That’s why pup parents need to be on the lookout for blisters or redness on the pads. Also, suspect a burn if you notice missing parts of the pads or they seem dark in color. Your dog may try to compensate for the pain of a paw pad burn by limping, refusing to walk, or licking and chewing at his bottoms of his feet. If you suspect your dog has a pad burn it is important to keep the area cool and clean. As soon as you notice the problem (limping along on the road, lifting paws in rotation, excessive licking), flush with cool water or a cool compress if available. Sacrifice your cup of beer at the festival, if necessary. Get your dog to a grassy area or if possible, carry him. At first chance, examine your

dog for signs of deeper burns, blisters and possibility of infection. Washing the feet with a gentle cleanser and keeping them clean is important. Bandaging can be difficult to do and to maintain (monitor and change often), but licking must be kept to a minimum, easier said than done. Some dogs will tolerate a sock for a few minutes but most dogs I know would rather chew off the sock and eat it. Lick deterrents (bitter sprays) may help reduce the damage caused by licking but many of my dog friends view the spray as a condiment. Best advice is to be mindful of hot surfaces — asphalt and metal (i.e. boat dock, car or truck surfaces). Put yourself in his place just for a few minutes; how would your bare feet feel? Walk your dog on the cool, shady side of the street or in the grass. Schedule exercise for early or late in the day or after a good rain. And while it may look silly and your human friends may razz you, lay down a wet towel for your Best Friend to stand on when grassy areas are not available.
