County, MCAS prevent costly development of Coosaw Plantation Beaufort County Council has approved the preservation of Coosaw Plantation in northern Beaufort County at the lowest price per acre in the history of the County’s Rural and Critical Land Preservation Program through the purchase of development rights and a conservation easement. The 1,584 parcel includes sensitive wetlands and 10-miles of waterfront along rivers and creeks. It was acquired for $833,000 from Beaufort County and $1.66 million from the Department of Defense. The purchase was made in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps

as part of the ongoing effort to protect the Marine Corps Air Station from encroaching development. The property lies in the MCAS Air Installation and Compatible Use Zone. Beaufort County Council Chairman Weston Newton said the acquisition fits squarely into the requirements of the county’s land preservation program by protecting valuable rural property. “Through the Rural and Critical Lands Program, Beaufort County is also able to leverage its funds at an exceptional value. When citizens overwhelmingly approved funding for this program;

Firefighters urge water safety this summer Provoked by the tragic losses they faced in Beaufort County waters last summer, Beaufort County Fire Chiefs are urging citizens to take extra precautions this year when around waterways. Water â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether in a pool, on a beach, or in the tub â&#x20AC;&#x201D; can be extremely dangerous, and can cause serious injury or death within seconds. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tragedies have firefighters anxious about this approaching beach season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest thing we want people to realize, especially those watching young

children, is that water can be a silent killer,â&#x20AC;? stated Chief Harry Rountree, president of the Beaufort County Fire Chief â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can slip below the surface without making a sound.â&#x20AC;?

Two zoning changes being considered by county Dataw island community to expand In 1983, when Alcoa decided to develop Dataw Island and the nearby 32-acre Oak Island, they requested permission from Beaufort County to build 1,143 single family units and 403 multi-family units on its property. Beaufort County approved the request as a planned unit development (PUD). The 32 acre Oak Island which is connected to Dataw Island by Oak Island Road was not developed. In August 2010, Beaufort County

approved a request to build 21 single family homes on the island with 9 acres dedicated to open space and the rest of the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property used for roads. The developer has requested to change the concept of development from 21 single family homes to 21 duplexes or 42 units. Since this is significant change to the original request, County Council must grant approval. The Dataw Island Property Owners Association and the Beaufort County Planning Department have recommended approval.

St. Helena Planned Unit Development considered for rezoning To prevent property from being approved as a planned unit development (PUD) but not actually building anything, Beaufort County required that as of January 2010 all approved but undeveloped planned unit developments be evaluated for reversion to a type of zoning similar to that surrounding the property. When January 2010 arrived, there were four planned unit developments

which had been in existence a significant period of time and were not developed. PUD St. Helena Station is a 13-acre PUD on the north side of Sea Island Parkway between Warsaw Road and Polowana Road on St. Helena Island. St. Helena Station was approved as a PUD in 1989. The surrounding property was rural when the PUD was originally approved and now, 21 years later, it remains rural. The planning department has recommended the property revert to rural zoning (1 unit per 3 acres).

An in-depth look at the people, businesses and organizations that shape our community

support our


troops By Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer


ven though it’s only May, the community (that means you and me) needs to start thinking about the 2nd Annual Lt. Dan Weekend to be held September 14-18, and we need to start donating our time and money ... now. Remember last year’s concert? Remember the camaraderie of the town when we welcomed and honored our wounded veterans? I was humbled and proud. It was a memorable weekend, and we have the opportunity now to make this year’s event better than ever. There are a variety of ways to help. The Independence Fund needs $75,000 to bring the veterans and their families to Beaufort. That money won’t present itself on its own. The number one way to help right now is to donate. Your tax deductible donation will be used to cover the expenses for the 100 severely injured veterans and caregivers attending LDW2 ( and to provide specialized recumbent tricycles for deserving heroes. Silver Star contributors who donate $100 or more will receive two free tickets to the Gary Sinise and Lt. Dan Band Benefit Concert taking place at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park at 8:30 p.m., Friday, September 16.

profile Continued from Page 6 You can further help our severely wounded troops by setting up a personal fundraising page. It’s simple, takes 10 minutes tops, and is a very effective way to help the troops. Visit this link: www. and click on the BECOME A FUNDRAISER button at the top of the page and follow the steps. Whatever is raised via your personal page is tracked and will be credited to you. Top fundraisers of $1,000 or more will receive complimentary passes to the Lt. Dan art opening and the number one fundraiser will have the opportunity to meet Gary Sinise backstage at the concert. Another opportunity to help is fast approaching. Lowcountry Captain Nick Russell has designated the Independence Fund and the Lt. Dan weekend as beneficiary of all proceeds raised from the inaugural American Wounded Veteran’s King Mackerel Fishing Tournament scheduled to take place from July 8-9. Coinciding with the Beaufort Water Festival, the tournament offers the perfect opportunity for both local sport fisherman and those visiting from out of town to participate in this event specifically designed to support some of the most severely injured veterans from the current wars. “They fought for us, let’s fish for them,” said Russell, himself a Marine veteran and exuberant supporter of the troops. Russell came up with the idea for a fishing tournament last year after

serving as a volunteer during the Lt Dan Weekend where he served as a “go to” point of contact for many of the veterans and their families. A full brochure about the tournament can be downloaded from the event website, For more information, call Captain Nick Russell at 843-814-9697. Other events taking place during the Lt. Dan Weekend are the Fourth Annual Wounded Warrior Run, presented by AMVETS; the Lt. Dan 5K; and the Second Annual Golf Tournament at Parris Island. Please visit www.ldw2. com for more information regarding these events. This year, the concert is not free. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at Cravings By the Bay, Chick-Fil-A, Berry Island Ice Cream, Fordham’s Market, NFCU at Parris Island and Cat Island Pro Shop. They may also be purchased online at www. From now until July 15, they are $15. From July 16 to September 1, tickets will be $20 and after September 1, they will be available for full price at $25. If you are in the military, admission is $5 off each of these prices. Again this year, wristbands will be sold for $5 to show your support for our wounded veterans. It is the quickest way to donate to the cause and visibly show your pride for those who have sacrificed their bodies for the protection and freedom of our great nation. You may purchase them online at The 2nd Annual Lt. Dan Weekend is sure to be a super fun time again!

When Linda received a surprising breast cancer diagnosis, she turned to the Keyserling Cancer Center for treatment. Through an affiliation with top rated Duke Medicine, Keyserling patients benefit from Duke’s treatment protocols and access to clinical trials.

A focus on students, teachers and educational events in northern Beaufort County

Community member gets education award Community member Ed Gillies has been named the recipient of the Champions for Public Education Award. Ed Gillies serves on the Capital Improvements Advisory Committee as chairman for the Beaufort County School District. This award is presented to community

residents, organizations/businesses/ industries whose support of and contributions to public education have significantly benefited the entire school district. The Beaufort County Board of Education nominated Mr. Gillies because of his contribution of time and resources for support of public schools.

LIMS science teachers can answer the question Almost on a daily basis students invariably ask, “Why do I have to learn this stuff?” The question is not new. It has been queried by pupils for years in classrooms everywhere. The answer is not always easily explained unless their teachers have first-hand knowledge of the application of academics to what is required in business and industry. In the case of science, technology, engineering and mathematics it is often more difficult to fully elaborate in a manner readily understood by students. However, as a result of participation in a unique project entitled “Teachers in the Workplace Using WorkKeys® Estimator” five science teachers at Lady’s Island Middle School are now better equipped to enlightened young minds with real-life examples of how what is taught in the classroom applies to what employees are actually doing on the job. Daniel Liegey, Aaron Hirsch, Deborah Clark, Eric Mohrman and Sharon Singleton, science teachers at Lady’s Island Middle School, recently spent a significant portion of their school week at Parker Hannifin Corporation, Racor Division’s Beaufort plant, interacting with employees, each in one of five different job classifications. The teachers shadowed the employees on the job, interviewed them and systematically examined required reading materials, essential mathematic computations, necessary graphic interpretations and other academically-related activities in order to analyze not only the skills essential to the job but also the skill levels necessary to accomplish all job tasks. Using the WorkKeys® Estimator as a guide, the teachers produced a comprehensive report that was given to the management at Parker Hannifin at the completion of the project. According to Kurt Dimitrov, HR/ Administrative Manager at Parker’s local filtration manufacturing operation, “The end product produced by the teachers will enhance the company’s ability to more accurately select qualified applicants for future position vacancies in all five job classifications. Because the Estimator was completed by educators and based on extensive information gathered from subject matter experts, the results are extremely credible and, therefore, very useful to my company.” “This project is a win-win situation for both Parker Hannifin and for the teachers” stated Dave Walker, Lowcountry Regional Career Specialist, who assisted with the project by conducting the initial training session for the participating educators. “Parker Hannifin has benefitted from job task analysis and because of the first-hand insight gained by the teachers the ultimate winners will be the science students at Lady’s Island Middle School” Walker concluded. 12

Superintendent, Dr. Valerie Truesdale said, “Mr. Gillies, the current chair of the Capital Improvements Advisory Committee, leads a group of highly committed volunteers who serve the community by overseeing building projects across the county. They report to the Board of Education and public

quarterly each year. The tireless devotion of Mr. Gillies and the other members has saved taxpayers significant dollars and contributed to the quality of the work. Mr. Gillies, a former advertising executive, donated his time to design the school district’s logo. He is well deserving of this award.”

Stop in for a bit of relaxation.


Mancave of Lowcountry opens As you drive towards Bluffton on Robert Smalls Parkway (S.C. 170), you may noticed a sign that says “MANCAVE,” located in the Furniture Warehouse Design Gallery complex, on the left, just north of the Broad River Bridge. No doubt, the sign conjures up a dark, stone cave ... why would anyone shop there? If you stop in, however, you’ll find a store filled with plenty of great stuff to outfit your own mancave. Now first, let’s clarify the name. Wikipedia defines mancave as “a male sanctuary, such as a specially equipped garage, spare bedroom, den or basement.” It’s not an actual cave, but rather “a place where guys can do as they please without fear of upsetting any female sensibility about house décor or design.” The Craft family, Dan and his son, Rob, started their first Mancave of the Lowcountry store in the Charleston area (Mt. Pleasant) and have seen sales go through the roof. Developing a new, larger Mancave of the Lowcountry for the Beaufort-Bluffton area made perfect sense to them. The new store, at 745 Robert Smalls Parkway, is now open for all to visit. There is sports-

related memorabilia, everything from signs to sofas (and recliners), as well as pictures (framed and unframed), banners, and furniture that reflect not only Si local and national Grondin sports teams, but the Lowcountry as well. Other manly themes include NASCAR, antique cars, hunting and fishing. The store also has autographed collectables and has unique gift ideas for the military as well. The Crafts have hired Beaufort resident Si Grondin as store manager. Grondin emphasizes that the company’s philosophy is to provide whatever the customer wants for his space. He says ,“if you see something you like but the team is not your favorite, tell us — we can order just about anything.” Grondin also stresses that the store is very female-friendly. “We take pride in having many, unique gifts for the men in their lives”, he says. MANCAVE of the Lowcountry is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., every day except Sunday. Call 843-379-0666.

New photography studio opens Captured Moments Photography has arrived in Beaufort. Eric and Susan Smith recently sold their home in Maryland, and moved their established photography studio to 1402 King St. in Beaufort, bringing along all their props and backgrounds and gear. Eric is an awardwinning photographer who specializes in studio portraiture. “I’m not a picture taker, but rather a portrait creator,” says Eric. He controls all the lighting and the look of the image he creates. Creating mood and emotion is a specialty in studio lighting. Susan runs the business end of things, overseeing production and sales and marketing.

Eric has photographed over 400 weddings in a 10-12 year period. In 1997, he transitioned to strictly studio portraiture and specializes in high school seniors, families, babies and military portraits. It was a tough decision to give up their busy studio in Maryland, but the couple fell in love with Beaufort and decided to avoid those northern winters. “We hope to bring our reputation with us. We have over 700 Facebook fans, so our new clients can see what we’ve done and read all the happy comments from our clients.” says Susan. Visit the studio’s website at www. or calll 843-379-0223.


When should you buy stocks? By Charles Tumlin

Have you ever done your homework on an investment, maybe read some good things in a periodical, or gotten your hands on a fascinating research report on an up and coming company? All the pieces seem to be in place. You make your investment with confidence, but the stock heads straight down. If you have been an investor for any amount of time, it has happened to you! The â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeworkâ&#x20AC;? that you have done is referred to as fundamental analysis, and it is the stock research in which most of us are familiar. CNBC, Money Magazine and The Wall Street Journal are most often quoting analysts who confine themselves to fundamental analysis. However, in my 18 years in the investment business, I find that most investors are missing a very important piece of the puzzle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; technical analysis. Both are important components to a successful portfolio. Utilizing only fundamental analysis is like playing a guitar with only one hand â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can make noise, but you have more rhythm playing with two. While the fundamental analysis can steer you

While fundamental analysis can steer you toward the â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatâ&#x20AC;? to buy, technical analysis can tell you â&#x20AC;&#x153;whenâ&#x20AC;? to buy or, more importantly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whenâ&#x20AC;? to sell. Both are important components to a successful portfolio. toward the â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatâ&#x20AC;? to buy, technical analysis can tell you â&#x20AC;&#x153;whenâ&#x20AC;? to buy or more importantly â&#x20AC;&#x153;whenâ&#x20AC;? to sell. Technical analysis can best be described through the basic law of supply and demand. We experience these forces in our grocery shopping every day. It does not take much to understand why fruits and vegetables are more expensive in the winter and less expensive in the summer. We know why jackets cost more in the winter and bathing suits cost more in the summer. The same forces that take the products that we buy every day in and out of favor will take stocks, sectors or asset classes in and out of favor as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we look at the cause of price movement in any individual stock, the market and the sector together on average cause 80% of the price movement in a stock.â&#x20AC;?1 So if 80% of a

stockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price is affected by these outside, technical attributes, then only 20% of that stockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price movement is being driven by the fundamentals. This is why a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock will often move opposite the direction of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business fundamentals. However, we already know that most people spend up to 80% of their time on the individual stock research and less than 20% of their time on the technical (market and sector) research. An investorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest risk in being wrong lies within the market and sector forces; this is where technical analysis can help. Our success ratio in investment selection is going to be limited until we can define where this investment lies in the technical picture. Because of these factors, we advise investors to structure their portfolios from a top-down approach.

To achieve balance, input equals output What goes around comes around. For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. Yin/Yang. Cause and effect. These phrases basically mean the same thing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; balance. The absence of balance creates stress and frustration, pain and disease, economic crisis and even war. So, what does balance mean and how do we maintain it daily in our health, relationships, and environment? Our bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to balance is automatic, not the part that thinks, but rather the part that reacts, based on the survival or healing needs of the system. For example, when you are cold, you shiver to warm up; when you are hot, you perspire to cool off. This is all provided we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t create interferences and get in the way of this natural balancing process. Interferences occur for a multitude of reasons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; poor lifestyle choices, stored memory and stinking thinking. Nature is dynamic and in a constant state of change, continuously seeking to achieve balance. Plants and animals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think, judge or reason, but rather respond to their environment to maintain proper balance for survival. We see this yearly as the seasons change. Trees automatically grow new leaves in the spring and drop them in the fall, squirrels donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be reminded to store nuts for the winter, and the blue crabs even know when to shed their shells in time for the Soft

Human beings are also dynamic and in a constant state of change, continuously seeking to achieve balance. Unlike nature, humans do think, judge and reason which regularly interferes with the natural rhythms that are designed to assist with balance Every function in our body occurs due to a message from our nervous system, which registers either survival or rest and digest. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been said that if we could just be â&#x20AC;&#x153;dumb as a tree,â&#x20AC;? weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happier and healthier.

Trees donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get stuck in â&#x20AC;&#x153;worryâ&#x20AC;? about their next drink of water, or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;judgmentâ&#x20AC;? that they are better or prettier than another tree, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;fearâ&#x20AC;? that they may get struck by lightning or infested by the next tree fungus. They just respond to their natural environment and in many cases, live for hundreds of years. What if we could get â&#x20AC;&#x153;out of our headâ&#x20AC;? and just respond to our surroundings responsibly rather than interfere by reacting inappropriately? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible, but requires conscious choice and self awareness. Begin by â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinking about what you think about while you are thinking about it.â&#x20AC;? Become aware of your thoughts. If you catch yourself thinking the same thought or creating the imaginary dialogue (you know, the one that will likely never occur), just think â&#x20AC;&#x153;shift,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;cancel,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;delete,â&#x20AC;? or anything that will pick up the needle and begin to sing a new song. Change the radio station by shifting to something more pleasant to think about, seeing the lesson of the situation you are chewing on, or simply thinking â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am joyâ&#x20AC;? (or fill in the blank with whatever you want to be in the moment: peace, confidence, clarity, etc). Once you realize that your thoughts affect your physical experience and can begin to tune into the conversation in your head, you can begin to shift your awareness for your own health and well being. Try it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be glad you did.

Intraocular Lenses (IOL) implants Before intraocular lenses (IOLs) were developed, people had to wear very thick eyeglasses or special contact lenses to be able to see after cataract surgery. Now, with cataract lens replacement, several types of IOL implants are available to help people enjoy improved vision. Discuss these options with your ophthalmologist to determine the IOL that best suits your vision needs and lifestyle. Cataract lens replacement: How IOLs work Like your eyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural lens, an IOL focuses light that comes into your eye through the cornea and pupil onto the retina, the sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that relays images through the optic nerve to the brain. Most IOLs are made of a flexible, foldable acrylic material and are about onethird of the size of a dime. Like the lenses of prescription eyeglasses, your IOL will contain the appropriate prescription to give you the best vision possible Which lens option is right for you? Before surgery your eyes are measured to determine your IOL prescription, and you and your cataract surgeon will compare options to decide which IOL type is best for you, depending in part on how you feel about wearing glasses for reading and near vision. The type of IOL implanted will affect how you see when not wearing eyeglasses. Glasses may still be needed by some people for some activities. If you have astigmatism, your ophthalmologist will discuss toric IOLs and related treatment options with you. In certain cases, cost may be a deciding factor for you if you have the option of selecting special premium lOLs that may reduce your need for glasses. Intraocular lens (IOL) types Monofocal lens This common IOL type has been used for several decades. Monofocals are set to provide best corrected vision at near, intermediate or far distances. Most people who choose monofocals have their IOLs set for distance vision and use reading glasses for near activities. On the other hand, a person whose IOLs were set to correct near vision would need glasses to see distant objects clearly. Presbyopia is a condition that affects everyone at some point after age 40, when the eyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lens becomes less flexible and makes near vision more difficult, especially in low light. Since presbyopia makes it difficult to see near objects clearly, even people without cataracts need reading glasses or an equivalent form of vision correction. Multifocal lenses This newer IOL type reduces or eliminates the need for glasses or

Mark Siegel, MD, FAAO Board certified, American Board of Ophthamology, www. seaislandophthamology. com contact lenses. With the multifocal lens, a series of focal zones or rings is designed into the IOL. Depending on where incoming light focuses through the zones, the person may be able to see both near and distant objects clearly. The ability to read and perform other tasks without glasses varies from person to person but is generally best when multifocal IOLs are placed in both eyes. It usually takes 6 to 12 weeks after surgery on the second eye for the brain to adapt and vision improvement to be complete with this IOL type. Considerations with multifocal IOLs For many people, these IOL types reduce but may not eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. For example, a person can read without glasses, but the words appear less clear than with glasses. Each personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success with these IOLs may depend on the size of his/ her pupils and other eye health factors. Side effects such as glare or halos around lights, or decreased sharpness of vision (contrast sensitivity) may occur, especially at night or in dim light. Most people adapt to and are not bothered by these effects, but those who frequently drive at night or need to focus on close-up work may be more satisfied with monofocal IOLs. Toric IOL for astigmatism This is a monofocal IOL with astigmatism correction built into the lens. Astigmatism is an eye condition that distorts or blurs the ability to see both near and distant objects. With astigmatism, the cornea (the clear front window of the eye) is not round and smooth (like a basketball), but instead is curved like a football. People with significant degrees of astigmatism are usually most satisfied with toric IOLs. Protective IOL filters IOLs include filters to protect the eyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retina from exposure to UV and other potentially damaging light radiation. The cataract surgeon selects the filters that will provide appropriate protection for the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specific needs. Other important cataract lens replacement considerations People who have had refractive surgery such as LASIK need to be carefully evaluated before getting IOLs because the ability to calculate the correct IOL prescription may be affected by the previous refractive surgery.

Warning issued on eating saltwater cobia By Sammy Fretwell

State warnings to limit consumption of certain fish were expanded Monday, May 16, to include cobia, a popular saltwater game species that some consider one of the tastiest fish caught in South Carolina. The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control advises people not to eat more than one meal per month of cobia because of mercury contamination. DHECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cobia warning brings to five the number of saltwater species that

carry agency health advisories because of mercury pollution. Shark, swordfish, larger king mackerel and tilefish also carry consumption advisories. Cobia are found in the eastern United States, from the Florida Keys to New England, and in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the National Marine Fisheries Service. They can reach 6 feet long and weigh as much as 100 pounds. Cobia are popular both because of their size and taste, according to the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. State officials added cobia to the list

Special to The Island News

Summer is fast approaching, and this past weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful weather proves it. Warmer weather, shorter skirts and the dreaded bathing suit are demanded by the heat. The pressure is on to quickly attain the beautiful tan skin that the strong summer sun brings with it, despite the dangers of skin cancer and wrinkles. Fair-skinned folks like myself have been warned for years by dermatologists about the damaging rays of the sun, and now the slight wrinkling of the skin around my eyes and the freckling on my chest proves

of species with warnings after collecting samples from fishing tournaments the past few years, DHEC spokesman Adam Myrick said. Mercury pollution is a widespread problem in fish in many states, including the South. Much of the mercury found in fish builds up in their tissue over lifetimes of exposure to the toxic metal. That means the biggest fish are the ones most likely to contain high mercury levels. Scientists say a major cause of mercury in fish is industrial air pollution that rains back to Earth and slowly contaminates fish.

them right. The pressures of society keep me going back year after year, despite the dangers and inevitable aging, to worship the sun. The bronze glow of youthfulness is a powerful pull for someone approaching middle age. Years of struggling to find an alternative to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bakingâ&#x20AC;? have cost me hundreds of dollars on countless brands of tanning lotions that yield â&#x20AC;&#x153;dirtyâ&#x20AC;? looking hands and feet, orange skin, and streaks. How embarrassing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to be healthy and cautious, but I end up just looking silly.

Most freshwater rivers from Columbia to the coast carry mercury warnings to limit consumption of certain fish, including largemouth bass and bowfin. The departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual advisory also reminded people to limit consumption of largemouth bass in the Catawba River basin between Columbia and Charlotte. PCBs are polluting those fish. The agency first issued PCB warnings in the Catawba basin last year and expanded those warnings this past winter. State officials are still investigating the source of the industrial poison.

Last week, I decided to give air brush tanning one more try. I stood in a small tent while Ericka from Indigo Salon hand sprayed my entire body. I was instantly bronzed from head to toe, and it only took 15 minutes. There was no orange tint, no streaking and no dirty hands or feet, just even, natural looking color that made me feel 10 years younger and 10 pounds skinnier! It costs only $25 and last for almost 10 days. When you see me around town this summer without my natural pasty look, you will know my secret.

Green grass despite bugs

Garden a Day

By Jim Colman

If I only had a dollar for every time a new Lowcountry neighbor said, “We never had these problems back home,” well, I guess I’d be a wealthy landscaper! Seems like every time we turn around, some new pest is attacking our warm-season grasses. Suffice it say that you can’t have a lawn without having some insects. Insects are part of our environment, and many are beneficial. Some are highly damaging to warmseason grasses…and the key is to eliminate or control those troublesome insects. Since the most common grass in the Lowcountry is Centipede, let’s start with the most common insect that attacks that grass: mole crickets. Mole crickets are insects that damage grass by feeding on the roots and above-ground parts of the plant…and by tunneling activity that disturbs the roots. These activities often result in death of the plant due to drying of the roots. Jim Mole crickets often present Colman themselves as dry, spongy spots in the lawn. Young nymph mole crickets are generally present beginning in June. You can test for their presence by making a detergent flush (2 tablespoons of dishwashing detergent in 1 gallon of water). Pour the mixture over a 1’ x 2’ area where activity is suspected. The mole crickets will surface within a few minutes. It is best to perform the flush in early morning or late afternoon. A general purpose insecticide labeled for mole crickets should be applied once you’ve determined they are present. Follow all label instructions. If your property has a history of mole cricket activity, you may want to consider applying a preventative application around the first of June each year. Remember, left untreated, mole crickets can destroy your lawn. If you have problems, or are having problems controlling the problems, consider consulting a landscape professional before the turf is damaged beyond repair. St. Augustine is probably the second most common grass in the Lowcountry. The pests that afflict it the most are chinch bugs. Chinch bugs are tiny black bugs, nearly impossible to see. Chinch bugs often enter St. Augustine lawns in the hottest spot of the yard. They then spread out from there. Left untreated they’ll eat the entire lawn by sucking sap from the grass blades. They are most often present in lawns with lush, over fertilized lawns with a thick thatch layer. You can detect chinch bugs by monitoring your grass. When chinch bugs are present, the affected areas look similar to dried up straw or hay (as the chinch suck the life out of the blades and runners of the grass). As soon as you notice activity, apply an insecticide labeled for control of chinch bug. As always, read the label carefully and apply only as directed. Do not let chinch bugs go untreated, or suffer the fate of many, many other new Southern gardeners and lose your lawn. For more information, call Jim Colman at Lawn Solutions, 522-9578, or



he Beaufort Garden Club will celebrate National Garden Week with its 17th Annual Garden a Day event. This weeklong event, from Monday June 6 to Friday, June 10, has become an anticipated tradition. Five homeowners will open their gardens to the residents of Beaufort and visitors. These gardens, rarely offered for public view, are some of the loveliest examples of Southern landscaping. Several offer impressive collections of statuary, some breathtaking waterfront views, and still others have rare specimens of shrubs, trees and flowers, all artfully arranged to reflect each homeowner’s unique concept of garden design. Some homeowners take a hands-on approach and have personally selected and planted the flora; others have commissioned garden experts to bring reality to their visions. Some gardens are young; others are mature. These are not botanical gardens; you’re not likely to see plant labels and you won’t receive plant lists. These gardens exist to fill your heart with joy, not your mind with facts. However, Master Gardeners from the Lowcountry Master Gardener Association will be there to answer questions. Look for the people in the green aprons. Gardens will be open from 9:30 a.m. each morning until 12:30 p.m.Light refreshments will be served by The Beaufort Garden Club.

ABLE, the Lowcountry Disabilities Foundation, Inc., is sponsoring development of a courtyard garden for the new Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs Building which will open in Burton this summer. Foundation leaders hope to raise $25,000 to cover the cost of the garden by selling bricks in honor of a business, individual or organization or in remembrance of a loved one. The garden has been designed by volunteers and is intended to provide a peaceful outdoor space where special-needs consumers can enjoy the beauty of nature. It will be landscaped with native plants and will have benches, a fountain, bird feeders and pave walkways. The new DSN building will include a day program for special needs people and administrative offices for DSN staff. Funds for landscaping the courtyard were not included in the budget. For more information, call Mitzi Wagner, DSN Director at (843) 255-6290.

The Clemson University Extension Office, in conjunction with the Lowcountry Master Gardener Association, will be presenting a series of free gardening seminars called “Lunch and Learn” at the Port Royal Farmer’s Market at Heritage Park on Parris Island Gateway. The classes will begin Saturday, May 21, at 11:30 a.m. with a class on Plant Propagation taught by well known Master Gardener, Alice Massey. The classes will continue every other Saturday throughout the summer. Some of the issues to be addressed will be: Citrus for the Lowcountry; Proper Pruning; Making Worms Work for You; Beautifying with Camellias; Rain Gardening; and Planting a Fall Vegetable Crop. So bring a lawn chair and take advantage of the many food vendors for lunch. And don’t forget to fill your market baskets while you’re there!

The presentation is derived from a major resurvey of St. Augustine and its environs by Barnes for the National Park Service. For the first 100 years of Beaufortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence, British colonial Beaufort and Spanish colonial St. Augustine were on the front lines of an international boundary dispute between Great Britain and Spain over the possession of the Southeastern United States. Barnesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; illustrated presentation will discuss the historic origins of Spanish La Florida, the government buildings, residential architecture and town plan of St. Augustine and its preservation efforts as it prepares for its 450th anniversary of its founding.

A spotlight on fabulous local restaurants and expert advice on the latest wines to try

AL  FRESCO  AT  NIPPYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S

The  laid-­back  outdoor  eatery  serves  dynamite  food By Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer The Lunch Bunch dined al fresco at Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, located at 310 West Street in beautiful downtown Beaufort. This week, the Lunch Bunch sadly missed Pamela who had a prior commitment; but, we welcomed an invited guest to dine with us, Mr. Trey Ambrose. If you know Trey at all, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware of the bits of humor he often brings to the table. We had a great time! Diana Deaner, owner of Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, was the gracious hostess, as always. Her laidback, friendly demeanor is contagious. By the time we left, we were humming Jimmy Buffet and booking flights to the Bahamas. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what happens when you go to Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The chaos of the week seems to disappear into the coolness of corn hole, fish tacos and ice-cold beer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a vacation in our own backyard. Literally, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in my backyard, and I love it! Especially on Thursdays from 6-8:30 p.m. and Saturdays, 12:30-3 p.m., when Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has live music from a handful of local artists. They play all the songs you know by heart, and every now and again, the urge to shag will come over a couple or two, and, before you know it, West Street becomes Ocean Boulevard in the 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous Shrimp Dog.

The Lunch Bunch reviewing delicious local restaurants

Interested in playing a round of corn hole? Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosts corn hole tournaments every Thursday as well. On the first Thursday of the month, bring a partner, and for $5 per person, you and your better half can play to win a variety of prizes. On all other Thursdays, corn hole is played with blind drawings, meaning you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know with whom youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be paired. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a load of fun, and always neat to meet new faces in town. Trust me, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all more alike than we know, especially when we play corn hole together!

Grilled shrimp and fish tacos.

Grouper sandwich with fries and cole slaw.

Now, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about the awesome food at Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Can you say dynamite? We started with some fried oysters on special and shared one of Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous Shrimp Dogs. You know Moe from Grayco? He invented the best tasting shrimp dog on the planet, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a must-have when you go to Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s! April and Trey chose to stick to the land when reading the surf and turf options. April ordered the mini cheeseburger, more commonly known as a slider, while Trey asked for two slaw dogs, popular in the South and prepared just the way Trey liked them: smothered with cole slaw. The rest of us opted for the sea. Barry ordered the grouper sandwich while I

got the flounder roll. Kim asked for the blackened shrimp taco, and Elizabeth similarly chose the blackened fish taco, both are must-haveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as well. Another must-do at Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is adding malt vinegar to the tasty shoestring fries. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a tradition for the Lunch Bunch, and I suggest you try it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; delicious! Like I said, if relaxed is what you want, relaxed is what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get at Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The casual eatery offers dining inside and outside. The service is fast. The food is great. The ambiance is stress-free. I like to call it Nippyville. Thanks Diana and Crystal, our server, for your smiles and hospitality. The Lunch Bunch just loves Nippyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s!

happy winos

The days of wine and noses I don’t know what rituals you and your family had around the dinner table, but in my family, as soon as the meal was served and my mother sat down to join my father, my older brother and myself, everybody just dug in. No holding hands, no grace, no thanking God. Not the Sweeneys!! As my mother loved to point out, God hadn’t slaved over the stove for hours, she had. And if we had to thank anyone, she felt it should be her. So I developed a slightly unusual ritual of my own that drove my family crazy. Before starting in on my food I would loudly say “Thank you, God,” hoping to shame the heathens around me, and then I would dramatically bend over my plate (my thick, dorky eyeglasses steaming up) and reverently sniff each and every item on it. The fresh pungent garlic my Italian mother had rubbed on the London Broil mixed with the savory meaty beef juices. Next to it, I inhaled the glorious aroma of salt and melting butter on a fluffy baked potato whose charred earthy skin whisked me outdoors where the sweet smell of fresh picked peas from my mother’s garden danced around my head. I was floating on an aromatic cloud in Foodie Heaven! But the sound of my dear, sweet mother’s voice brought me back to earth. “FOR CHRISSAKE, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR FOOD!!” She would screech.

“Maybe ‘four eyes’ needs stronger glasses,” my jerky older brother was only too happy to volunteer. “Shut up, stupid!” my father would yell at my brother which would prompt my mother to scream,“Don’t you dare call him stupid! Even if he is!” Which would then cause my brother to shout, “This is all your fault!” then slug me, which caused me to throw my milk in his face and then the usual nightly all out screaming, slapping, melee would erupt. (The truth is, I had started it all with crazy food smelling fetish. I giggled secretly to myself ). I tried to explain to these bozos that the nose was where the most important tasting began and ended. For instance, when you had a cold, you couldn’t taste anything. Blank stares were their response. They just didn’t get it. More proof, as far as I was concerned, that I was adopted and that my real parents (aristocrats fleeing some awful coup) had haphazardly left me on this depressing cookie-cutter Long Island doorstep, where they would hopefully return (perhaps tomorrow??) to reclaim me. As the years went by, and I got around my peers, I thought it best to hide my food smelling fetish — that is until now. In my new career as a wine educator and restaurant wine director, I realized that I can now proudly sniff to my Happy Wino heart’s content. Swirling glass after glass

of wines from around the world, I am happily challenged to identify and describe the many nuances of The Grape so that my Happy Wino friends might know what to Terry expect if they order Sweeney them. What a delightful cornucopia of smells now fills my sense memory. With white wine: peaches, ripe melons, green apples, limes, mangos, grapefruit ... and these are just a handful of the fruit essences that tickle my nose. With the reds: black cherries, strawberries, pomegranates, raisins, and plums all compete for my olfactory attention. At this point, there are so many fruits dancing in my head, I sometimes feel like Carmen Miranda. (Note to younger readers: you will just have to Google her and scare up one of her campy fruity publicity shots.) Of course, there is an entire gamut of non-fruity smells which I’m sure you have read about or maybe even smelled firsthand in your very own wineglass: things like saddle, leather, mushroom, burnt toast, tobacco, licorice, even bacon. The best analogy I heard concerning this process of swirling and sniffing of wine and the inhaling of its aromas was from wine expert Philip Seldon who likened it to hearing a full orchestra in

concert. One listens to a symphony in its entirety, yet one can pick out an oboe here, or a cello there, and the various harmonies and melodies that float throughout it. All of it together makes the music all the sweeter. So too with wine. The color, the aromas, the taste and the texture all play their part in the wine tasting experience. Sure the tongue can taste sweetness and salt, sourness and bitterness, and most certainly can determine the texture of your wine. (Smooth or rough, heavy or lightbodied). But as any professional wino will tell you, most wine flavors are actually aromas that are vaporized in the mouth and perceived through the rear nasal passage. Or “retronasal passage” if you prefer true wine geek speak. That’s why the real pros make that annoying slurping sound as they bring the air over the wine in their mouth to deliver the wine’s aroma to their retronasal passage to better “taste” the wine. (I personally do it to show off and make others feel less sophisticated). Since hearing about it, I have tried to work the term “retronasal passage” into my daily conversation whenever I can. When someone asks “How are you?” I have now taken to replying “My retronasal passages are worn to the bone!” So far no one seems the least bit impressed by my new highly esoteric terminology. Once more, “Pearls before Swine” — the story of my life. Cheers!

35 YEARS OF QUALITY DENTISTRY Dr. Gene Grace is a graduate of Wofford College and Emory University School of Dentistry. He has provided state of the art dentistry in Beaufort for 38 years.

He and his wife, Beth, a former County Council member, have been married for 39 years and have two daughters, Chilton Simmons and Katherine Hefner.

Both dentists have been using lasers for five years. Dr Grace eliminated silver fillings from the practice 12 years ago. Some of our cases can be viewed on our website,

Dr. Katherine Hefner is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and the Medical University of South Carolina Dental School. She and her husband Ashley, an architect, are also involved in Beaufort. They have two sons, Vann and Ford. Katherine most recently was co-chair of St. Helena's Church Tour of Homes.

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).

Dr Grace and Dr. Hefner have been here for a long time and will continue to live and serve Beaufort. "It's important in our minds to give back to this wonderful community that has been good to us," says Dr. Grace.

Why choose our practice? We have always been on the cutting edge of dentistry. Drs. Grace and Hefner have been trained at the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), the foremost cosmetic post-grad school in the world.

5 times voted by readers of The Beaufort Gazette as Beaufort’s Best Dental Practice, including 2009

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

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

Tackling tick or bug removal is a tricky task Are the ticks more prolific this year? Most of my dog friends seem to be transporting habitats of every variety of tick Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; teeny ones, tan ones, soft ones, hard ones, big fat ones and the decorative, designer tick with the dot. None of them are good news. Ticks, no doubt the South Carolina state parasite, are small arachnids, or spiders, that live on the blood of mammals, birds, occasionally reptiles, certainly your dog and sometimes, you. A harpoon-like mouth arrangement with a series of barbs that angle backward anchors the tick in the place it dines. As opportunistic feeders, ticks do not arrive on the planet carrying disease agents, but can transport various diseases between species â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called zoonosis. Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted fever,erlichiosis and tularemia are examples of diseases ticks can transmit via saliva. Research conducted at Ohio State University indicates that transmission



BowWOW! Is a production of Tracie Korol and wholeDog. Tracie is a holistic behavior coach, a canine massage therapist (CCMT), herbalist, and canine homeopath. Want more information? Have a question? Send a note to Tracie at or visit

of disease organisms begins at approximately 24 hours, incentive enough for me to remove them before they set up shop. While I have become infinitely more casual about ticks since moving to the Lowcountry, they still carry a pretty high creepy factor. A bug bite is one thing, but a creature that jams its entire head under the skin, and then hangs around for a meal, is the inspiration of horror movies. Ticks tend to go for the warm, secluded areas like inner ears, armpits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yours and your Best Friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; under the collar or between the toes. Primary tick offenders are often female,

so once you find her, be sure to check around nearby for a hopeful male or two. Except for tick removal specialists and the folks who have no nerves whatsoever, there has to be a universal â&#x20AC;&#x153;ugh!â&#x20AC;? response to finding a tick on your pet. There is also the equally â&#x20AC;&#x153;ugh!â&#x20AC;? response to the old wives methods of removal. One frightening procedure recommends holding a lighted cigarette on the engorged tick until it dies. Not a great solution if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smoke or if you have unsteady hands. Dogs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too crazy about this method, either, as you might imagine. Another old-timey remedy

is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;smotherâ&#x20AC;? the tick to death with a gob of Vaseline. As ticks breathe only a few times per hour, that method takes quite a long time, if it works at all. Plus, getting a good grip on a greasy tick for the tug-off is almost impossible. And then your dog is greasy, too. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the passive procedure of letting the tick hang on until it is engorged and then falls off onto the floor. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been known to mistake these for a rogue lentils. The drawback is that with this passive method the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lentilâ&#x20AC;? will reappear in an armpit at a later date when it gets hungry again. While it is tempting to simply rip the offender off as soon as discovered, the goal of removal is to dispatch the tick so it will wither up and withdraw its probe-head from the skin. There is a risk of infection if the tickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head is left under the skin. (There is a risk of infection if anything is left under any skin, let alone something with a face.) Since I recently discovered

GreenBug, I use it for all insectrelated murders. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spray whatever dog friend is hosting, wait a minute, and then comb off the offenders. Upon application of the nontoxic, nice-smelling oil, the tick will wave its legs frantically, but then die obligingly. The diehards (no pun intended) may require individual attention. It may surprise you how tightly these guys have clamped on: they definitely mean business when they set up for a hot meal. Try not to grab the body of the tick, the now puffy part, as you want to minimize the risk of potential disease-carrying saliva back-flow into your dog. Again, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ugh!â&#x20AC;? Grabbing the die-hard with tweezers, close to the skin, is much safer. I recommend giving your dog a quick spray with GreenBug, especially on the underside, before going for a high-grass mosey. It is the best way to discourage buggy hitch hikers.

PET OF THE WEEK Why should you run and adopt Bella? Because she is a wonderful dog! She is about 4-5 years old and is very mild mannered. She loves people and is the easiest dog in the world to walk. Bella gets along well with other dogs and is wonderful around children. She is the perfect dog for a family looking to bring a dog into their loves without all of the work of a puppy. You can meet Bella at the Palmetto Animal League Adoption Center in Riverwalk Business Park in Okatie off S.C. 170.
