BHS boys rekindle track & field dynasty

A one-time dynasty rose again Saturday in Columbia, as Beaufort High’s boys claimed the Class 4A track & field championship – the 14th state championship in program history, and the first since 1990. Beaufort finished with 99 points, easily outpacing runner-up Westwood (67), and is now tied with T.L. Hanna for the most state titles in South Carolina history. The Eagles built an insurmountable lead with an outstanding performance Friday night, including a sweep of the top three spots in the pole vault and the top two in the discus. Beaufort finished with four individual state champions – Reggie Jones Jr. (400 hurdles), Kagel Coke (pole vault), Dexter Ratliff (discus), and Isaiah Parker (shot put). The Eagles also had runner-up finishes from Desmond Gaillard (triple jump), Jones (pole vault), Kegan Crowell (discus), and the 4×400 relay team, and Jones also finished third in the 110 hurdles. Battery Creek’s Jordan Wilson-Smalls won the high jump, helping the Dolphins finish 19th in the Class 3A boys standings. Whale Branch’s boys finished seventh in Class 2A with 29.5 points. Richard Campbell posted the War-

riors’ best individual finish with a runner-up showing in the 400, and Robert Alston placed third in the triple jump and sixth in the high jump. Beaufort’s girls finished 11th, led by Keyasha Brown’s

runner-up finish in the 100. Battery Creek was 16th in the Class 3A girls standings, while Whale Branch finished 11th in Class 2A, led by a runner-up finish in the 4×100 relay.

BA boys soccer earns ‘one for the thumb’

With their streak of state championships down to its last six minutes, Beaufort Academy’s boys’ soccer team did the unthinkable. The Eagles scored two goals in the final six minutes for a stunning 3-2 win over The King’s Academy in the SCISA 1A championship game Friday in Columbia, claiming their fifth consecutive state title. After a scoreless first half, The King’s Academy scored two goals in the first 12 minutes of the second half to seemingly take control of the match. Ben Trask broke through to get the Eagles on the board midway through the half to pull within one, and Trask scored the equalizer with six minutes left. Charlie Weeden added the game-winner three minutes later to stun the Lions. The Eagles advanced to the championship game with a 2-0 win over Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach in the semifinals, as Trask and Cameron Keenan scored goals and David Mathai recorded his third straight shutout and eighth of the season.

BMH receives approval to perform non-emergent PCIs Beaufort Memorial Hospital (BMH) has received state approval to perform elective percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs), a non-surgical procedure used to open blocked arteries in the heart. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) granted BMH a Certificate of Need after reviewing the hospital’s application and determining it met the required criteria to perform non-emergent PCIs. DHEC had authorized BMH to perform emergency PCIs on patients suffering the most dangerous type of heart attacks in 2013. Since then, the hospital has been averaging 70 of the life-saving procedures each year, earning numerous national achievement awards for its cardiac care. Starting in mid-May, Beaufort Memorial will be able to provide non-emergent PCIs as well. The hospital’s three interventional cardiologists had been traveling to Charleston to perform the cardiac interventions in medical centers approved for non-emergent PCIs. “Now, patients can have the procedure done right here, close to home,” said Beaufort Memorial President and CEO Russell Baxley. “It’s a much-needed service we’re excited to finally be able to provide to the community in our own Cochrane Heart Center.” Beaufort Memorial opened the heart center in 2003, initially offering diagnostic catheterizations. Each year, it averages about 400 of the procedures, used to assess the presence and severity of coronary heart disease, as well as other issues of the heart. PCI is the recommended, non-surgical method used to open narrowed coronary arteries that supply the heart with blood. During a PCI, a catheter is inserted into the blood vessel to clear the clot and restore blood flow to the heart. A stent may be used to stabilize the artery and prevent it from closing again. Elective PCI can be used to relieve or reduce angina, prevent heart attacks, alleviate congestive heart failure, and allow some patients to avoid invasive surgical treatment like

coronary artery bypass surgery. To receive state approval to perform non-emergent PCIs, a hospital must provide evidence it will perform a minimum of 200 PCIs over a period of three years. “Based on the number of diagnostic catheterizations we perform today and the projected growth of the community, we expect to provide more than 200 elective PCIs a year,” said Associate Vice President of BMH Cardiac and Imaging Services Daniel Mock. “Since we’re already performing emergent PCIs, we have the staff, equipment and facilities in place to get the program up and running in just a few weeks.” In addition to catheterization procedures, the Cochrane Heart Center offers nuclear/ thallium imaging, echocardiography, exercise stress testing/ EKG and Holter monitoring.

Investing vs. Paying Off Debt The debt dilemma The process for eliminating debt is anything but an easy-to- solve financial equation. Many people wonder if they should pay off their debt as quickly as possible or invest their money, letting debt payments run their course. The answer depends on whom you ask. Theories about balancing investing with debt vary widely. Some financial experts say freedom from debt is the most important goal. Others say it’s more about the math: Your money should go toward investing if your investments earn a higher rate of return than your debts cost you. Still others focus on the emotional aspect: How comfortable are you with a certain level of debt? Neither one nor the other Better yet, perhaps, is a balanced approach to wealth management. If you’re like most people, you’ll need to manage finances for both present and future needs. That means paying off some debt today while simultaneously investing with an eye on the future. Although your decisions should take into account your own needs and circumstances, consider the following guidelines for handling debt in light of investing goals: • Save for a rainy day. Before paying down debt (beyond required payments) or settling on an investment strategy, make it your first priority to put funds aside for an emergency reserve. We recommend six months or more of living expenses; an absolute minimum is three months’ worth. These funds should be in traditional savings or very short-term, highly liquid, non-volatile investments. • Your future first. As a general rule, your long-term investment plan should take priority over applying extra amounts toward debt. Be careful as well to avoid having “lifestyle creep,” a tendency toward more expensive tastes and luxury consumption, impede your investment outlook. By contributing to a long-term investment plan as early as possible, you may set yourself up for a brighter future. If paying down debt is also a priority, you’ll want to examine your personal budget to decide how much to direct each month toward investing and how much toward debt repayment. Just remember, there are no magic numbers. In general, the best advice is to make sure your investment strategy fits your financial expectations for the future.

• Prioritize your debts. With an emergency fund in place and your investment strategy up and running, putting any extra money toward your debts is also a smart way to go. But how do you decide Whitney which debts to pay down McDaniel first? One approach is to start with the smallest debts first to eliminate at least some of your debt burden and interest payments in a timely manner. It also makes sense to pay off high-interest debts like private student loans and credit card debt more quickly. Federal student loans and mortgages might be lower priorities because their rates are often lower and their terms are longer. Vehicle loans might fall somewhere in the middle. Tax considerations might also come into play. • It’s personal. As you divide and conquer debt, don’t forget to consider the emotional side of your strategy. If paying off a certain debt will help you feel more secure, you might want to go with your gut feeling. You’ll likely experience a growing sense of financial freedom if you stay on course and get your debt under control. As it shrinks over time, you may find you have more funds available for enjoying the present and focusing on the future. Wells Fargo Advisors does not provide tax or legal advice.

Trask Parkway accident leaves one dead

The Burton and Beaufort Fire Departments responded to a single-vehicle accident resulting in the death of one occupant just before 8 p.m. on May 10. Firefighters responded to a reported accident in the area of 3557 Trask Parkway, near Stokes Toyota. Firefighters arrived to find a single SUV off the roadway with heavy damages. Firefighters reached the vehicle to find the driver and passenger with critical injuries. The male passenger was removed from the vehicle and transported to the hospital. The female driver, 79-year-old Bertha Jenkins of Yemassee, was trapped inside the wreckage and had to be extricated using the Jaws of Life. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The Burton Fire District has responded to more than 90 vehicular accidents in 2018.

Like many spring phenomena this year, sea turtle nesting season in South Carolina was slightly behind schedule. The season’s official May 1 start date came and went with no sign of nesting turtles, likely due to cooler-than-normal water temperatures resulting from an abnormally cold winter. But now the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) is pleased to announce the season has finally begun – on May 8, a female loggerhead laid the first nest of the season on Daufuskie Island. This marks the first time in several years that South Carolina’s inaugural nest has been laid in the southern part of the state, and for a beach that averages fewer than 100 nests each year, it’s a happy distinction. “We are so excited to have the first turtle nest of the season on Daufuskie Island,” said Tammy Helmuth of the island's volunteer group. “[It was a] textbook nest — high and dry, tracks were perfect, and eggs were exactly where we thought they were.” After following the telltale sea turtle tracks up the beach, Helmuth located the nest’s egg chamber with three gentle probes of the sand, extracted one egg for ongoing genetic research, and cordoned the nest off with tape and a sign. It’s a process that thousands of SCDNR-trained and permitted volunteers and staff will repeat this summer on every South Carolina beach as they count, monitor, and protect sea turtle nests. “Given the number of loggerhead sea turtle sightings in the water reported to us this spring, we’re encouraged that it will be another successful nesting year, likely surpassing nest counts observed last year,” said biologist Michelle Pate, who coordinates SCDNR’s sea turtle program. South Carolina’s sea turtle nest numbers have been gradually rising over the past decade, mirroring similar trends in neighboring states. Four of the past five years have seen the highest nest numbers since record keeping in South Carolina began. In 2018, volunteers and staff documented 5,251 nests, with a record-breaking 18 laid by green sea turtles. Four sea turtle species nest on South Carolina beaches: loggerheads, greens, Kemp’s ridleys, and leatherbacks. Loggerhead nests comprise the vast majority of the state’s total number each year. All four sea turtle species are classified as endangered or threatened and are protected under the Endangered Species Act in addition to local and state ordinances. Sea turtle clutches average 120 eggs and hatch after approximately 60 days. Nesting females may remain in South Carolina waters and continue to nest every two weeks, laying up to six nests per season. Throughout this stressful time, the turtles also abstain from eating. Because nesting exacts a high energy toll on the large reptiles, female sea turtles do not come ashore to lay eggs every year. This cyclical nesting pattern results in fewer sea turtle nests in some years than in others. In 2014, for instance, sea turtles laid just 2,097 nests along the South Carolina coast, following 5,194 nests in 2013. South Carolina beachgoers can help the state’s sea turtles by keeping beaches clean, turning beachfront lights out to avoid disorienting turtles, and giving all sea turtles and nests a wide and respectful berth when encountered on the beach.

Party in Port Royal Birthday Party for the Birds successful for sixth year

he birds were the word in Port Royal last Saturday, May 12, as many gathered for the sixth annual Birthday Party for the Birds. The event kicked off with a parade that started at Port Royal Elementary School and led up Paris Avenue to the Port Royal Rookery and Cypress Wetlands. Students wore bird hats and other groups rode golf carts and played kazoos during the festive parade. Pete Richards, the driving force behind this unique event for the past six years, said it was a terrific suc-

cess and he’s thankful for everyone who helped make it happen — the Town of Port Royal, all the generous sponsors, the volunteers, the teachers and children who marched in the parade, and the more than 200 people who showed up to participate in the entertaining and educational celebration of the birth of baby birds in the wetlands. Among the many activities, there were guided tours of the wetlands, a scavenger hunt, guest speakers, bird hats, kazoos, and even a birthday cake.


COMMUNITY BRIEFS Paratroopers donate sculpture to Beaufort National Cemetery

Veteran and active duty paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division Association’s local chapter have donated a monumental sculpture to Beaufort National Cemetery. The Bureau of National Cemeteries, of the Veterans Administration, has accepted the gift on behalf of the United States Government and authorized its placement on the cemetery grounds. The gifted sculpture from the chapter was accompanied by a financial endowment for the maintenance of the monument in perpetuity. The Paratrooper Monument will be officially accepted in a ceremony at Beaufort National Cemetery on Saturday, May 19, at 11 a.m. The sculpture, which was created from black granite quarried and sculpted in India, was designed by Michael Pearson, a member of the Beaufort Arts Association. Etching text and unit patches were done by a local firm in Georgia, which also saw to the sculpture’s installation at Beaufort National Cemetery.  The monument memorializes the service and sacrifice of U.S. Army paratroopers dating back to World War II. The monument was totally funded by donations gathered by the local chapter of the 82nd Airborne Division Association. The Ben Vandervoort Chapter has 150 members, both veteran and active duty paratroopers, and the chapter serves the Savannah-Hilton Head- Beaufort area. 

Verdier House to host lecture on genealogical sleuthing

Operation "Pull Down" results in $17,569 donation to Honor Flight Savannah Johnson Creek Tavern co-owner Coleman White (far right) with his wife Cinta White (far left) pose with Honor Flight Savannah board members (left to right) Owen Hand, Marian Spears, Larry Spears, and Jim Weiskopf at Johnson Creek Tavern following the

pull down by an Army of volunteers of 17,569 one-dollar bills that patrons stapled to the walls and ceiling of the restaurant over the past three years. This was the second donation to Honor Flight Savannah by Johnson Creek Tavern co-owners White and

Jay Lloyd.   The first donation, made in March 2015, was for $12,869.  This year’s donation of $17,569 was more than enough to pay for all Lowcountry veterans who traveled to Washington, D.C., from May 4-6, to visit the nation’s war memorials.  

Genealogical sleuthing will be the topic of a dinner and lecture at the Verdier House at 801 Bay Street on Monday, May 21. An inscribed tombstone in local woods prompted a quest by researcher Kimberly Morgan to discover the life of the interred. Morgan will share the story of that mystery with advice to the audience on solving their own mysteries. After stumbling on the tombstone, Morgan was inspired to pursue what’s now a 14-year journey that snowballed from, “Who was Stephen Binyard?,” to a research project that has encompassed everything from good old-fashioned detective work to the cutting edge world of DNA testing. Morgan will tell the story using examples of documentation she located in her research that helped her piece the story together. She will also share methods she employs to garner successful genealogical results. Morgan  works as an independent genealogical and historical researcher and has had the PBS show “Finding Your Roots” as a client. She is from a U.S. Marine family and has deep ties to the local military community, working with the Marine Corps to preserve historic cemeteries located on local bases. A wine and hors d’oeuvre reception begins at 5:30 with the program to follow from 6-7 p.m. Admission for members is $15 per person or $25 per couple. Non-member admission is $20 per person or $30 per couple. Call 843-379-3331 to make reservations.



Sunday mornings, on the way back from church, I listen to Casey Kasem’s “American Top 40” on the radio. The original show was broadcast weekly and would feature the current week’s top-selling records according to the Billboard charts. Casey’s animated voice couples with a little bit of suspense, as he prepares you for the No. 1 song. Occasionally he would also provide a little background of the band or even the song itself. His show was broadcast from 1970-2004, although the format did change over the years. For me, American Top 40 is a throwback to the past. Once again, I get to hear Casey’s voice as he announces, “And moving up on the chart to No. 1 for the week – ‘Joy to the World’ by Three Dog Night.” I also hear the words much better on my car stereo rather than the radio in my mother’s old station wagon.

Now what?


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.

Casey Kasem has been gone for four years now, but thanks to technology and recordings, his radio show still goes on, just like the other old radio classics that are currently broadcast. My husband and I enjoy listening to the old Jack Benny Show, Johnny Dollar and Mercury Theatre when we are traveling, even though many of the recordings were done before we were born. Then there are the old movies on the

American Classic Movie station. One of my favorites, “The Philadelphia Story,” was made in 1940 when my parents were teenagers. But Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart will never age even though I grow older. Now when I watch the movie, I relate to the parents of Tracy Lord (Katherine Hepburn’s character) instead of her. Of course, we are exposed to old television shows too; shows that open a window to a

different era. We always laugh when we see a character going to a pay phone or getting up to turn on a television set. When I walked in the house the other day, my husband was watching an old “M.A.S.H.” rerun. I do not think either one of us realized how many social issues of the times were incorporated into the show’s scripts. It is rather eye-opening. At the time, we were just enjoying the humor of the show, like Radar and his teddy bear and Klinger dressed in women’s clothes. The Statue of Liberty outfit was the best! Casey Kasem died at the age of 82 in 2014, but like the old radio, movie and tv stars he will be around for a long time. Through his broadcasts, singers like Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin still make the charts, and my drive home from church is much more entertaining.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thank you from AMIkids Beaufort Board of Directors

An open letter to the Almost Mother

On behalf of the AMIkids Beaufort Board of Directors, I want to thank everyone who helped make our 27th annual Croquet Picnic fundraiser a success on May 5. Thanks to generous donations throughout the weekend and those who participated in our silent auction, we raised more than $110,000 to directly benefit the at-risk young men we serve at our AMIkids Beaufort program. While our non-profit program is the big winner, we’d also like to congratulate Brays Island Quail for taking first place in the croquet tournament with 64 wickets, Brays Island Dove in second place with 60, and the Brays Island Pheasant team for a strong third-place run with 53 wickets. Winning best-dressed woman was Mae Mendoza and best-dressed man was Wayne Heath. Our Bullseye winner was Ray Dehncke, and the “10 AMIgos” – a play on AMIkids and Cinco de Mayo – won for best picnic spread. We offer a special thank you to Brays Island, which for 27 years has generously shared part of their community and driving range for our croquet event. We appreciate all our supporters and thank our entire community for decades helping us help young men separate a troubled past from a bright future. For more information, visit www.

Vote for new council members in the coming elections

Beaufort County financial reports are months past the point of being ridiculous. It is now over 10 months since the close of Fiscal Year 2017, and no audited report is available for the taxpayers who are the investors. The County Council has provided no public reports of why the county can't get out a must report. If this was a business corporation, major officers would have been terminated months ago. The taxpayers need to consider the leaders of the Council and their failure to be open and honest about the financial audit and reporting. What is the interim county administrator doing to keep the council and the public informed? After all, before Kubic retired accounting reported to him. There must be some reason why our daily newspapers show no interest in this total failure of Beaufort County to produce audited reports in a timely basis. The Gazette/ Packet have done a great job of reporting on the school board problems, but silent on the county. I now rate the county financial reports an "F", and the school at least an “A-.” Vote for new council members in the coming elections. Jim Bequette

For our Mother’s Day celebration may we take a moment and remember our Almost Mothers. I bring you this letter as I am she. The forgotten Almost Mother. The one who walks around without a child, yet instead a scar, extra belly fat, and a remembrance of a pregnancy. The one who may burst into tears for no reason, especially when this day rolls around. Simply, she reminds herself it was a decision for the best of reasons at the time. She may be the one who still carries the biggest smile on her face and has the best of intentions to bring others joy. The Almost Mother. If you are hurting on Mother's Day. This letter is my love to you. To us, the Almost Mothers, When we held a pregnancy full-term to only gift her/him at the end, to a loving and well-deserved family. We know in our heart of hearts this decision was the best for everyone involved. Yet at times, others share their stories of what we should have done instead, for somehow they knew our situation best. This letter is to you. For my Almost Mother friend who wanted to go full-term, but now was not the time. You had no other option, but the only one you knew. You are loved. This letter is for you. For my Almost Mother friend who carried to full-term, but had the uncomfortable experience of not leaving the hospital with a child, but a casket instead. You are loved. This letter is for you. For my Almost Mother friend who is afraid to have another child for the fear of what your gifted child may think when you get the chance to meet again. "Why not me? How could you have this child, but not have kept me?" This uncomfortable future conversation leaves you childless due to your unending fear of potentially hurting her. This letter is for you. This Mother's Day, don't forget the other Almost Mothers. We matter too. I love you all. Your Almost Mother sister in love, Brittney Brittney Hiller is the Founder of Effervescence YogaSpa in Port Royal. She has been an Almost Mother for a decade and overcame PTSD while teaching yoga, meditation, and laughter therapy. It is her mission in life to plant smiles on others’ faces even if that means she must pinch the cheeks of her clients to lift their lips.

Tips for Daily Prayer

Praying with Scripture Encountering God in the Bible God touches our hearts through Scripture. As we spend time with Jesus in daily prayer, we talk with him as a friend, and we allow him to quietly speak to us. Prayerfully reading Scripture is a great way to deepen our time with the Lord. As we read the Bible, we encounter the living God, and he speaks to us through his Word. The Gospels are a great place to start. Rather than starting with Genesis, it is often best to start with one of the four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. The Gospels are unique because they contain what God did and said when he walked on earth among us. In the Gospels, we encounter Jesus as a person, and his words and actions touch our hearts. Start with one small part or story. When praying with Scripture, quality is often more important than quantity. For example, instead of reading all of chapter 10 of the Gospel of Mark, you might focus on the story of Jesus healing the blind man, Bartimaeus, in verses 46-52. You can read the passage slowly, perhaps several times, allowing its meaning to sink in rather than rushing to another passage. Put yourself into the scene. It helps to imagine yourself in the scene, seeing and hearing what is happening. You might picture yourself as part of the crowd walking past Bartimaeus. You see him as he sits begging on the side of the road. You hear his voice ring out over the noise of the crowd, “Jesus, have mercy on me!” You feel the excited trembling in his body as you guide him to meet Jesus. You share the crowd’s astonishment as you see that he has been healed; he can now see!

Reflect on what touches your heart. As we read, there will often be something that touches us personally. When this happens, we can consider quietly what Jesus is trying to say to us and how it connects to our lives. For example, you might have been greatly moved by the heartfelt urgency with which Bartimaeus cried out for mercy. As you quietly reflect upon why that may have moved you, God helps you realize that there is an aspect of your life where you are struggling with brokenness, and you desperately need the mercy and healing of Jesus, too. Talk to Jesus about the insights he has given you. As we find the Lord touching our heart and mind in Scripture, we can talk to him about it. Continuing the previous example, you could begin to ask Jesus for forgiveness. With new insight, you might talk to him about your own need for healing. The plea of Bartimaeus might become a heartfelt prayer of your own: “Teacher, I wish to see!” In simple ways like this, even a small passage of Scripture can help you have a beautiful prayer experience with the Lord.
