The Island News covering northern beaufort county

BMH names first Chief Medical Officer To help meet the ever-increasing demands and challenges of today’s healthcare environment, Beaufort Memorial Hospital has hired its first chief medical officer (CMO), an intermediary between doctors and administrators charged with advocating for cost-effective, highquality patient care.

Kurt Gambla, D.O., an internist in the community for 24 years, was chosen for the position following a national search conducted by an external hiring firm. In addition to serving as a primary care physician, Gambla has been involved with virtually every administrative committee in the hospital.

“Kurt has always been a person who has looked at the big picture,” said BMH President and CEO Rick Toomey. “He is level-headed, highly respected and has a strong desire to work as a liaison between the medical staff, management Kurt and board of trustees.” BMH continued on page 5

Wholehearted health: Cardiologists offer tips for your ticker In the time it takes you to read this story, five people in the United States had a heart attack. If that doesn’t get your attention, consider this sobering statistic: every minute, someone dies from a heart disease-related event. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost half of Americans have at least one key risk factor for heart disease. To help you understand your risk, Beaufort Memorial Hospital is presenting “Wholehearted Health: Tips for Your Ticker” on Thursday, May 15 in the Lakehouse at Sun City. During the free seminar, boardcertified BMH cardiologists Drs. Stuart


continued from page 1 A graduate of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, Gambla spent his first two years in the medical field working for Beaufort-Jasper Comprehensive Health Services. After six years in private practice, he took a position with Beaufort Memorial Primary Care. He also has served the last 16 years as hospice director of THA Healthcare. Gambla takes over as vice president, chief medical officer, on June 1.

Smalheiser and M. Shannon Shook will talk about medical conditions and lifestyle choices that make you susceptible to coronary disease and steps you can take to improve your heart health. The program will begin with a wine

and cheese reception at 4:30 p.m., the presentation at 5, and a time for audience questions after the discussion. ”Coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease,” said Dr. Smalheiser, a cardiologist with Beaufort Memorial Lowcountry Medical Group. “Your chances of developing the disease increase if you have diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or if you have a close family member who had heart disease at an early age.” You’re also at greater risk if you’re a man older than age 45 or a woman older than 55. While you can’t do anything about your age or family history, there are interventions you can make to help

improve your chances of staying healthy. Eating a nutritious diet, exercising, controlling the stress in your life and managing your blood pressure and weight can help you avoid heart problems. Lowering cholesterol levels is important because the buildup of cholesterol, called plaque, on the inner walls of your arteries reduces the flow of blood to your heart. Most heart attacks happen when a blood clot suddenly cuts off the heart’s blood supply. The “Wholehearted Health” seminar is free and open to the public, both Sun City residents and non-residents, but seating is limited and registration is required. To register, call 522-5585.

“The majority of hospitals across the country today have CMOs,” Gambla said. “With all the new regulations and the business of medicine growing more complex every day, you need to have a gobetween who can facilitate what doctors need and what the hospital has to do to comply with federal regulations and keep a healthy bottom line.” A long-time participant in the governance of the hospital, Gambla is uniquely qualified to serve as the voice of the medical staff. Since joining Beaufort Memorial in 1999, he has served on nearly a dozen hospital committees and was chief of staff from 2003 to 2005. He

also served as chairman of the Credentials Committee, responsible for reviewing and evaluating the qualifications of physicians applying for hospital privileges. “Over the years, through my experience on various committees, I’ve gained some valuable insights about the culture of the hospital and an appreciation for how the various departments can mesh,” Gambla said. In his new post, Gambla will collaborate with Beaufort Memorial’s medical staff to develop, implement and enhance clinical protocols and patient care services and programs. He will help recruit new physicians and

play an instrumental role in developing a strategic plan for the hospital as it continues to expand and improve healthcare services in the future. Among the areas of care the hospital may want to explore, Gambla said, are integrative medicine, non-emergent cardiovascular interventions and palliative care for patients with advanced chronic illnesses. “It’s inevitable that we will grow to keep up with the demographics,” Gambla said. “We need to decide where we want to be going as an institution. As CMO, I’ll work with the senior leadership team to make sure we’re all moving in the same direction.”

Drs. Stuart Smalheiser and M. Shannon Shook will be talking about heart health.

Greetings from the Garden Guru The Garden Guru

By Susan Stone

In February, I was given the opportunity to offer some garden advice for The Island News. Thanks to all the folks who wrote in and requested additional information, I get to write a monthly column! First, a little background on my colorful career: My first garden was a humble little strawberry patch on the edge of my grandmother’s patio. I was about 3 years old. I had my very own miniature set of garden tools and took my responsibility very seriously. I could hoe and fuss for hours. I was one of those kids who loved dirt! To this day I love the way it smells, the way it feels — especially on my feet. I was born in the South but the military took our family all over the country. I had spent 26 years in southern Ohio before I came to the Lowcountry in 1996. After designing and gardening in northern landscapes for nearly 15 years, I was completely unprepared for the adventure of gardening in the South. In the first week at Haig Point on Daufuskie Island, I managed to get into a nest of fire ants (all the way up to my elbows), got chased by an alligator and had a Black Racer (snake) fall out of a tree, just inches from my head. Holy cow. Welcome to the Lowcountry: Not only is it challenging, but potentially

Susan Stone,


Contact organic gardener and landscape designer Susan Stone with your lawn and gardening questions. dangerous! Gardening in the Lowcountry is definitely not for the faint of heart. As if the heat, humidity and biting insects aren’t enough, you have to have your wits about you and pay attention to your surroundings. After 26 years of grey skies and cold winters, the greatest thing about gardening here is the potential for four seasons of color. We can seamlessly move from season to season with a symphony of color and fragrance. As part of my continuing education, I participated in a chemical applicator class. Although I passed and received my license to spray, I had learned enough to know that I didn’t want anything to do with dangerous chemicals. So I began my own study of organic and sustainable practices.

monthly garden tip for may

Your Azaleas have finished their show for the year ... and what a show it was! It’s time to deadwood and prune. You have until the first of July to accomplish this task. Azaleas set their blooms early. If you prune too late, you will lose next year’s performance. Timing is everything in nature!

Everything you need to nurture your plants and keep everybody safe from harm is right in your kitchen pantry or bathroom medicine cabinet. Over the years, Jerry Baker became my best friend. You will hear more about Jerry and other influential gardeners later. My plan for the column is to offer monthly advice that may cover what to prune or what to plant. In addition, I will share recipes I’ve collected over the years to help you kill weeds, eliminate harmful insects, rejuvenate sick plants and treat diseases. Your questions and the wisdom you’ve collected concerning the landscape are most welcome. Although I cannot always guarantee it, I will do my best to publish the questions and advice I receive. Please direct your questions and advice to


I would like to thank my dear friend Rita for this wonderful recipe. If you have plants (including grass) that are struggling, this should help a great deal. INGREDIENTS: A handful of sheetrock mud (about $6 for a small bucket should last you all year) dissolved in a five gallon bucket of water. DIRECTIONS: Saturate the plant or plants. The calcium in the mud will act like a stint in the arteries to allow nutrients to flow and be absorbed. Following up with an organic fertilizer that now has an open pathway, should “jump” your plant. Warning: Overuse of this remedy can cause the opposite effect. You can harden the plant and soil around it if repeated too often.

Remember, when gardening and so it is with life ... too much of a good thing is still too much!

Penn Center holds going away party for Rev. Nan White By Lanier Laney

In 1862, Laura Towne, a member of the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, travelled to St. Helena Island to work with thousands of people newly freed from slavery and helped found Penn Center. During the last decade, Rev. Nan L. White, who founded the Beaufort branch of the Unitarian Universalist Church 15 years ago, has actively engaged members of her faith, both locally, regionally, and nationally, in support of Penn Center on all levels from volunteering to fundraising. Her church has

also been recognized for its volunteer work throughout the Beaufort area, whether tutoring students, feeding the hungry, nurturing local organic farming or cleaning trash from the roads and waterways. After 15 years, Rev. Nan is moving on to a new congregation in another part of the country, as is the Unitarian tradition. There was a Celebration of Thanks this past Saturday, May 3, at Penn Center as a goodbye party for Rev. Nan for all she has done for the community and several hundred people turned out

from all over the region. Rev. Nan and her spouse Sam Ballenger received bricks with their names on them to be included as part of the expanding church building. Nan also received a portrait that will be hung in the church as she was the founding “mother of the church� and its first pastor. She was also honored by Penn Center and inducted into the 1862 Circle last year. Thank you, Rev. Nan, for all you did for Beaufort. Your big heart will be missed. Here are some pics from the event.

Tapas and Tunes fundraiser benefits Spanish Moss Trail By Lanier Laney

The second fundraiser for the Spanish Moss Trail held at Breakwater Restaurant on Sunday, May 4, was a sell out. Actually, it over-sold out, showing the popularity of both the Spanish Moss Trail and special events at Breakwater. This one featured dozens of delicious Spanish tapas prepared especially by Chef Beth Shaw along with Sous Chefs Skye and Megan for the occasion. Plus, several yummy Spanish-themed drinks were served. Money raised will go toward connecting the next segment of the rail trail from 15th street in Port Royal to the existing segments. Founder of the nonprofit Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail and volunteer Executive Director Dean Moss said that if all goes as planned and the county finishes their segment on schedule, that everyone will be able to bike, hike or stroll from Port Royal all the way to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort by the end of the summer. What an accomplishment! And big thanks go to Breakwater owners Gary and Donna Lang, Beth Shaw along with the staff of Breakwater, and the great local band Blue Mudd, and to everyone who attended this event for their donations and contributions to the building of this great addition to our community. Here are some pics:

Animal Medical Center of the Lowcountry celebrates 25 years By Lanier Laney

Alison and Dr. Mark Guilloud, who started the Animal Medical Center of the Lowcountry 25 years ago, gave a party last Saturday, May 3, celebrating the milestone for all their clients — both two-legged and four-legged. Dr. Mark credits his wife Alison with the 25

year success of his practice. “Alison has a great deal to do with a smoothly run practice. She does everything from payroll to kennel care. She has always been my biggest cheerleader and motivator.” He also gives credit to his hard-working staff.“Without my superstar staff, our daily routine would be close to chaos. They are always in tune,

very obviously they have a way of making everyone feel special.” And he described his new associate, Dr. Wreden, as intelligent and confident. The job is still interesting after 25 years because, adds Dr. Guilloud with a smile, “You never know what’s coming through that door.”

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

School board announces 2014-15 teachers of the year Some very special Beaufort County School District teachers were treated with gift baskets of flowers, balloons and treats Friday, May 2 as Board of Education members made surprise visits to their classrooms to announce the 2014- 2015 Teachers of the Year. School Teachers of the Year are selected by their peers according to criteria established by the schools, the South Carolina Department of Education and the district’s Teacher Forum. Next fall, the teachers honored today will be eligible for District Teacher of the Year honors. “The teachers we’re honoring today have been selected by their peers, which makes their recognitions very special indeed,” said Board of Education Chairman Bill Evans. “It’s an outstanding group who should serve as terrific representatives and role models for the many wonderful teachers we have across our district.” “The board and I look forward to this day each year,” said Superintendent Jeff Moss. “Great teachers are the keys to great students.” Here are some of the 2014-2015 Beaufort County Teachers of the Year: • Makela Wilson: Battery Creek High

Gilead Elementary in Mt. Gilead, N.C., for four years. He has been principal at Stony Point Elementary for two years. DelForge replaces Carmen Dillard, who was promoted in February to become the school district’s Director of Elementary Academic Assistance.

“Charles has terrific leadership skills and a solid understanding of what it takes to operate a successful school,” said Superintendent Jeffrey Moss. “He relates well not only to faculty and staff, but also to his students and their parents. We’re excited to have him.” DelForge has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in elementary education from Appalachian State and Western Carolina universities, respectively, a master’s degree in school administration from Fayetteville State University, and an Ed.S. in school administration and supervision from East Carolina University. During the Coosa Elementary search process, after all applications were screened to make certain that the candidates met the basic qualifications, a screening team reviewed the applications in depth and recommended

candidates for personal interviews. Next, a six-member interview committee met with the recommended candidates. That committee was comprised of a parent leader selected by the School Improvement Council, the school’s teacher of the year as selected by the faculty, a principal of a similar or “feeder” school, district Chief Instructional Services Officer Dereck Rhoads, district Chief Administrative Services and Human Resources Officer Alice Walton, and Superintendent Jeff Moss. After each interview, committee members rated the candidate and those ratings were submitted to the superintendent. After the selected candidate’s personal references were called and verified, a recommendation was made to the Board of Education.

The 5th grade students at Beaufort Academy learned how to use a CAD (computer aided design) application, with help from Ms. Reilly and Mrs. Compton. Tinkercad is a web-based 3D design application that the students used to create bag tags for their book bags or luggage. They mastered many skills, such as measuring in mm, inserting text and shapes, creating negative spaces, grouping objects, and scaling. The 5th graders were very excited about the ability to go from design to print after seeing 3D printing in action at their STARBASE experience last month.

Beaufort High School is proud to announce the selection of Maureen Butler as “Support Staff Person of the Year.” Ms. Butler had been serving as attendance clerk, and streamlined the attendance processes over several years. She now works as the registrar. She is seen above with Dean of Students Herb Glaze, and Principal Corey Murphy.

The Beaufort Academy chess team placed 24th at the United States Chess Federation National Junior High Championship, held in Atlanta from April 25-27. BA was in the K-9 (Kinder – 9th grade) Under 1,250 division, and the BA team was the only one to have all of their players of elementary school age. Overall, the tournament hosted 3,000 players from 400 teams. Pictured above: Jack McDougall, Kevin Rogers, Whit Suber and Kendra Rogers. Not pictured: G Simmons.

Sixth grade science teacher Ms. Beach, based on a course she was attending via the Citadel, created “The Citadel Group” at Lady’s Island Middle School. The group, as a part of a term project, created an inclusive project where the students were responsible for the concept, design, implementation and distribution of their project. The students wanted to raise money to help support the school pantry. They did this by organizing a nursery in the school’s green house and raising seedlings and selling them at the school’s yard sale.

Meet Maleia Everidge, Grayco’s in-store home designer By Lanier Laney


ver the past few years, Grayco Hardware has been undergoing a dramatic transformation into Grayco Home and Hardware with the addition of beautiful decorative objects for home, garden and entertaining. The creation of this transformation has been a result of the hard work of Marjorie Gray and Maleia Everidge, Grayco’s in-house designer. Maleia, a North Carolina native, says, “Thanks to Marjorie, Grayco is a family owned local hardware store that has taken on a new image — not only as a place where you can find the tools to build or repair a home but beautifully decorate it as well.” The now-gorgeous home department that was started by Marjorie as a few humble shelves in the middle of the store four years ago has expanded to an entire furniture and lamp department in the back of the store. Maleia currently oversees and buys for this “Lowcountry Living Showroom.” Marjorie hired Maleia as her co-buyer and in-house designer two years ago. ”Maleia has been a very successful designer in Beaufort for years; I saw her work and loved it and what a wonderful fit it has been for us,” Marjorie said. Maleia got her design experience early, working in some of the best designer showrooms at the famous North Carolina furniture market in High Point during college. She started her first design business in the early 2000’s, a few years after graduating from the University of North Carolina. She also gained experience building and renovating numerous homes of her own and for friends and clients over the years. She’s a former associate of Beaufort’s prestigious M Home and Garden store on Bay Street, where she further refined her craft. Maleia “discovered” Beaufort through her good friends Francis and David Cherry. She and her husband moved here and raised three wonderful children. Zach, 21, is now at the College of Charleston; Addie, 19, attends Clemson University; and Emma,

Maleia Everidge is seen in The Lowcountry Living Showroom at Grayco on Lady’s Island.

17, goes to Beaufort Academy. Says Maleia about Beaufort, “I just love the sense of community we all have here and our beautiful setting on the coast.” Maleia has volunteered for more than 10 years with Historic Beaufort Foundation and has been an active contributor to many of the beautiful decorations at the organization’s annual soiree and other events. She is also very involved with St. Peter’s Catholic Church’s “Homes for the Holidays,” where she has decorated five acclaimed show houses. When it comes to her style, Maleia says, “Some people call it ‘Coastal Chic’, to me it’s more of a ‘Refined Rustic.’ For example, I’d put an elegant, modern, white lamp on a table with a driftwood finish. I love clean, modern, simple, sophisticated, and to me, the rustic part makes it approachable, warm and inviting, by using lots of natural materials and finishes and more casual and easy living for our seaside lifestyle. I like to make people feel good in a room and that it shows a part of their personality.” With so many people redoing their beach rentals this time of the year, Maleia specializes in the “quick refresher.” She

keeps up with the trends in home design and says you can do it easily (without spending a fortune) with some new graphic pillows, a pair of modern lamps and maybe a mirror. In the Lowcountry Living Showroom, Maleia has worked hard to give customers a high-end chic look, at a great price. She points to a mirror and says, “That mirror on the wall looks exactly like a Mitchell Gold which retails for almost $1,000. Our version is $299.” The showroom also exclusively carries one of Maleia’s favorite High Point furniture collections called Braxton and Culler, made in the USA. (It’s proved to be so popular they can barely keep it in the store!) She brought modern graphic wallpaper and fabric to the store and several new lamp lines, to name just a few. She also loves the new Benjamin Moore paint line that Grayco owner Herb Gray has added “because of their beautiful coastal colors.” If a customer brings a picture of a room or a paint swatch to the store, Maleia will gladly give advice there. For larger jobs, she has a successful interior design business called ME Design where she does large and small residential and commercial projects. She recently did a very beautiful re-do of Dr. Karen Eller’s office in Port Royal. She’s been a great resource too for other top interior designers in the Lowcountry who visit her often for suggestions and help. It’s rare to find a place like Grayco that can meet all your decorating needs — from nails to designer sofas — under one roof. And with Maleia Everidge on the team as the in-store designer, the store has hit a “home run.”

Thanks to their unwavering commitment, Beaufort Memorial was the first hospital in South Carolina to earn the coveted Pathway to Excellence® designation from the American Nursing Credentialing Center.

But from all those they’ve comforted and healed over the years, our nurses had already earned the ultimate designation: professional.

‘A piece of my heart’

This play tells the stories of women who served in the Vietnam War Based on interviews with 26 women, “A Piece of My Heart” intermingles the stories of women who served in the Vietnam War. The play explores their lives before, during, and after their service. Though originally written for six women and one man to play multiple characters, the abundance of talent at the auditions led director Gail Westerfield to add a chorus/ensemble to join the six named characters, and cast two All-American guys to play the men in the show — love interests, military brass, wounded GIs, and more. Ensemble member Carol Miller said she finds it challenging “to try to create a number of completely different characters,” among them a child with Agent Orange disease, a backup singer in a USO show, an experienced war nurse, and an idealistic young Registered Nurse. Miller, whose older brother was a Recon Marine who did two tours in Vietnam, has had many memories resurface “about that time and emotions that have been buried for a long time.” She says she’s gained new insight into how women who served were affected in the same way as their brothers in arms. Seeing the play, she feels,“will help heal some, honor others, and give some insight into women who also played a real role in the Vietnam War.” Joellen Hirschey, one of the play’s younger cast members, said, “I wanted to do this play for my grandfather,” who served in Vietnam but, like most vets, spoke little of his experience there. “When the audience applauds, I want the vets in the audience to consider that applause to be for them, because they deserve it,” she said. Hirschey plays a sweet, naïve, but ultimately powerful nurse, Sissy. She feels her biggest challenge as an actor is imagining herself in a war zone. “Trying to find that fear and chaos inside yourself is a wonderful challenge and an exhausting task. My character watches men die right in front of her; getting yourself to that place without forcing it and seeming dishonest is a very difficult job.” “My character is a perfect example of how the human psyche can heal itself,” she continues. “Sissy, like many others,

experienced hell on earth in Vietnam. She came out damaged in mind and body, but her inner strength is so beautiful, and I believe that inner strength is in us all: to adapt, to overcome. That is what is so beautiful about this show: we are reminded of how strong we can be.” Kay Owen, who is fairly new to the stage, said she is up for the task of playing Mary Jo Kincaid, lead singer of the Sugar Candies All-Girl Band, in a play that has it all: “Romance, treachery, good guys, bad guys, drama, comedy, music, interesting characters based upon real people, and, at least for some of us, it brings back memories.” She recalls her own opposition to the U.S. presence in Vietnam during the war, but says the play offers a sense of closure about “such a polarizing event that went on for so many years with tragic results all around.” Owen finds it “quite moving that the entire cast and crew is of one mind to tell the story of the characters’ lives truthfully and respectfully ... As my minister says, ‘You do not need to think alike to love alike.’ We all love our country.” Margy Oehlert, who is new to Beaufort but not to the stage, said she finds the play’s cast stellar. “They all have a professional attitude and have been a delight to work with. Without our fabulous teamwork,

we could not be effective in telling this amazing story that needs to be told,” she said. Oehlert’s character, Martha O’Neill, is a Navy nurse — a take-charge officer who finds herself unprepared to handle the devastation of the war. An educator for 30 years, Oehlert stresses the importance of learning about “a history that is not often taught.” The child of a WWII vet and the sister of a Vietnam vet who returned from service only to die young of what was likely Agent Orange disease, Oehlert finds herself now “overwhelmed with the love and duty to our country by so many veterans who have been forgotten.” She states with pride that, as Martha says, “A Piece of My Heart goes out to each one of them.” Like Oehlert, Anne Valle Helm’s favorite thing about “A Piece of My Heart” is her castmates. “The play provides a wonderful opportunity to work with an interesting, diverse group of talented people,” she says. Helm plays Whitney, a wealthy, welleducated young woman looking for an adventure who signs up with the Red Cross to be a “Donut Dolly.” Noting that the women on whom her character is based are now her age, Helm says she was moved to learn about the brave and accomplished women who served in Vietnam. “In 1968,

I was carefree and hitch hiking through Europe, while she was concentrating on staying alive in a very controversial war.” “A Piece of My Heart” has further strengthened her love of her country, Helm says. And while she has found that those who served have some terrible memories of their time in Vietnam, “most of them also have stories of bonds with people and experiences that changed their lives for the better.” Like the play’s other actors, Maria Combess admires her character, a feisty former hippie-turned-nurse, Leeann, for both her strong will and her vulnerability. “I love the fact that it is a true story,” she adds. “People need to know about the women who served in Vietnam and how they were such an important part of the war, in spite of the terror and dismay they experienced.” Combess notes that, while the women who served can’t forget what they suffered, in the play they ultimately find a sense of peace. As a mother of a son, she finds it especially easy to empathize with her character’s pain and sadness at the fates of the men and boys she tries to save. While telling Leeann’s story in “A Piece of My Heart,” Combess finds satisfaction in channeling her sometimes overwhelming feelings in order to portray her. “They took care of our sweet boys,” Combess continues. “These women were the last people that some of these guys saw or talked to before they died. You couldn’t have that experience and be the same person ever again.”


“A Piece of My Heart” will be presented Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 18 and Sunday, May 25 at 3 p.m. at the USCB Center for the Arts, 805 Carteret Street, Beaufort.

the indie film corner: ‘visitors’ The Indie Film “Visitors” will be shown at USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret St., on Monday, May 12 at 7 p.m. Thirty years after “Koyaanisqatsi,” director Godfrey Reggio — with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane — once again leapfrogs over earthbound filmmakers and creates another stunning,

wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh in Black and White digital 4K projection, “Visitors” reveals humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. The film is visceral, offering the audience an experience beyond information about

the moment in which we live. Comprised of only 74 shots, “Visitors” takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves. Tickets are adults $7, seniors $6, and students $7. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145 or email Bonnie Hargrove at, or visit them online at

Penn Center presents ‘In the Footsteps of My Ancestors’ The York W. Bailey Museum at the historic Penn Center on St. Helena Island presents, “In the Footsteps of My Ancestors,” a beautiful and soulstirring original art collection created by watercolorist and painter William Kwamena-Poh. The museum will introduce the artist and his collection at a “Meet-the-Artist” wine and cheese reception on Friday, May 16 at 6 p.m. William Kwamena-Poh is a native of Ghana, West Africa, who came to the United States in the early 1980’s and has lived in Savannah since 1995. He is an incredibly gifted self-taught artist who paints beautiful, vibrant and skillful works of art. “When looking upon William’s work, you notice immediately that he is greatly influenced by his Ghanaian culture and the love of his people and homeland,” states Victoria Smalls, Director of History, Art and Culture at Penn Center. Smalls

Serenity by William Kwamena-Poh.

says, “Cultural traditions look to the past for authenticity as cultural traits are handed down generation to generation. The Ghanaian, West African and Gullah Geechee cultures are one in the same and that fact is so evident in William’s work. This artist expresses his culture and has manifested it in many forms, perhaps in the cloth — a woman adorns on her body or as a headdress, in work — as a fisherman sews his cast net to catch fish for his family, in a name — on the side of

the bateau a man builds to cross the water or in the sweetness expressed on a child’s beautiful brown face. William KwamenaPoh does this wonderfully well and as if you are viewing a beautiful photograph or postcard from Ghana.” William states that “The sun’s strength is ever present, providing a colorful environment which is strongly reflected in Ghana culture..” When he visits Ghana, he takes several photographs of the places he grew up and then creates sketches that depict the natural and original feel of the scenes. He then transfers the drawing onto watercolor paper, manipulating the colors to add beautiful textures and emotional qualities of the scene. Known internationally for his series images of women, fishermen, children and market scenes, William’s work has been featured in numerous museums and galleries. His work is collected by private and well-known public figures in the U.S.

and abroad, and his award-winning works have even graced the sets of TV’s “The Cosby Show,” “Moesha,” “Living Single,” “Motown 30” and “South Central.” William’s father was aware of his artistic talent; however, wanted William to follow in his footsteps in sharing the history of his people as a historian, a wish and desire William did not possess. In time, divine intervention saw both a father’s wish and a son’s protest through an altered lens. William’s art is a gift and he shares the history and culture of his homeland and people through his paintbrush. “In the Footsteps of My Ancestors” will be on exhibit at the York W. Bailey Museum from May 16 through June 21. The York W. Bailey Museum is located at 16 Penn Center Circle West, St. Helena Island.

A preview of Rossini’s ‘La Cenerentola’ (Cinderella) By Alan Schuster The Met Opera: Live in HD will present Rossini’s “La Cenerentola” on Saturday, May 10 at 12:55 p.m. at USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort. In searching for an assessment of this comic masterpiece that would easily surpass my best efforts, I came upon this fine expression written by Bryce Westervelt, a professional opera singer and author of numerous articles about the great composers. “A classic Rossini comedy with a heart, ‘Cinderella’ is an irrepressible take on the traditional fairy tale we all know and love. Rossini conjures up a handsome prince, a beastly stepfather, bickering stepsisters, a beautiful heroine — and sheer magic in the music. True love, goodness, and forgiveness win out with an unabashedly happy ending — even for the wicked stepsisters! ‘Cinderella’ brims with Rossini’s most brilliant coloratura writing and exuberant ensemble pieces. With its effervescent music and irresistible tunes, this zany romp is as much fun as opera can possibly be.” Act I: Cenerentola (a.k.a. Cinderella, Angiolina) sings a tale about a king who chooses a bride for love and goodness while her

Don Magnifico’s crazy dream.

stepsisters, Clorinda and Tisbe, ridicule her. Alidoro, Prince Ramiro’s tutor, appears disguised as a beggar. Cenerentola kindly feeds him, after which news arrives that the prince will pay a visit and will escort the ladies to a ball at which he will choose a wife. The stepsisters’ excited reactions awaken their father, Don Magnifico, who enters, telling them that he had a dream in which they would become queens. Learning that the prince is coming, he’s convinced that this will happen. The scene shifts as Prince Ramiro arrives — disguised as a valet — curious to see the ladies since Alidoro had said that one of them is worthy of being his bride. When he encounters Cenerentola, they are immediately attracted to each other. The charade continues as

Dandini, Ramiro’s valet, makes a pompous entrance posing as the prince, leading the sisters to fawn all over him. As they prepare to leave for the palace, Cenerentola pleads with Magnifico to let her go as well but he rebuffs her, telling his guests that she’s just an annoying servant. All depart except Alidoro who invites her to the ball, but only if she tells no one who she is. At the palace, Dandini tells the prince that neither sister is worthy to be his bride. Suddenly, a commotion erupts when the veiled Cenerentola, dressed in a gown, appears. While Magnifico notices a resemblance to Cenerentola, she and Ramiro share loving gazes as the act ends. Act II: Although they agree that the unknown lady looks a lot like Cenerentola, Magnifico remains convinced that the prince will marry Clorinda or Tisbe. When Dandini courts Cenerentola, she gently refuses him, declaring that she loves the prince’s valet. Overhearing this, the disguised Ramiro joyfully comes forward and declares his love as well. But she hesitates, giving him one of her bracelets and telling him to learn who she really is by finding who wears the one that matches it. Now Magnifico presses Dandini to choose

one of his daughters, forcing him to reveal himself as a mere valet, leaving Magnifico furious. Cenerentola is home when the others return and observe her suspiciously. In a thunderstorm, the prince’s carriage overturns and he and Dandini, no longer disguised, come to Magnifico’s home, seeking shelter. Ramiro and Cenerentola joyfully connect the bracelets and she agrees to marry him. At the palace, the wedding is taking place as her family watches grudgingly. Cenerentola asks Ramiro to forgive them, and as everyone praises her, she rejoices the end of her many years of heartache. The music: The opera starts with a first-class overture which brings forth Cenerentola’s pleasant ballad, “Una volta c’era un re” (Once there was a king). Dandini’s grand entrance “Come un ‘ape” (Busy as a bee) leads to a magical ensemble with plenty of patter and buffonery, ending in a thrilling crescendo. Cenerentola’s “Signor, una parola” (Signor, a word) opens an extraordinary stretch of Rossini magic as she pleads to attend the ball, and ends with a brilliant ‘thinks’ quintet. “Zitto, zitto, piano, piano” (Hush, hush, softly, softly) is a catchy tune shared by Ramiro and Dandini as they evaluate the

sisters’ qualifications — slim to none. Then Ramiro is off to find the matching bracelet in a threepart aria,“Si, ritrovarla io giuro” (I swear to find her...), impassioned with a generous run of high notes. Now comes one of the liveliest things Rossini ever composed. It’s a glorious sextet “Questo e un nodo avviluppato” (What a tangled knot) in which the singers display great comical fun with the Italian rolled ‘r.’ It’s not only strikingly original, but rarely if ever copied in its unique style. The grand finale begins when Cenerentola sings “Nacqui all’affanno” (I ascend the throne). It’s an affecting aria which turns into a splendid concerted rondo among the guests. Two outstanding Rossini virtuosos star in the leading roles, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as Cenerentola and lyric tenor Juan Diego Florez as the Prince. And two prominent basses, Alessandro Corbelli and Luca Pisaroni, sing the roles of Magnifico and Alidoro, respectively. Fabio Luisi will conduct. Tickets are $22 for adults, $18 for OLLI members, $15 for students under 18. All seats are assigned and the box office opens one hour before curtain time. Call 521-4145 or visit www.

Bay, 203 West Street, Beaufort, in the restored Lipsitz Building. Steve’s work will be exhibited through May at the USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret St. For more information, call 843-521-4145 or visit www. A preview of Steve’s work can be viewed at Gullah Celebration: In keeping with history and tradition, the Corner Community on St. Helena Island is gearing up to celebrate Memorial Day weekend with an array of activities to recognize a holiday the people of St. Helena Island have always celebrated as part of their American heritage. The Red Piano Too Art Gallery is hosting a special art exhibit on May 24, featuring the work of well-known Lowcountry artist Diane Britton Dunham. The theme of this show is “The Gullah Creole Caribbean Connection.” Gullah Creole is the term coined by Dunham because it best describes her artwork blending elements of her colorful Louisiana Creole roots with the rich historical Gullah culture of the Sea Islands. She will discuss the Gullah Creole Caribbean art connection and related history during the exhibit. Noted Beaufort musician and Dunham’s husband, Phil Griffin, will provide music for the Gullah side of the event from noon until 2 p.m., playing classic Southern Blues and traditional Gullah music. A collection of Gullah-themed needlework hangings by Bridget Murray will also be exhibited. These pieces emphasize the detail Murray incorporates in her work. The Red Piano Too Art Gallery will also present the East of the River Steel band from Washington, D.C. This band is made up of young people ages 6 to 19, in a program that enhances lives, builds confidence and fosters resiliency as it also develops a love and appreciation of the arts. The band will present a special concert from 2 to 3 p.m. This is a must see performance, according to longtime Caribbean resident Elayne Scott. An additional exhibit of Lauren DeLoach’s Lowcountry paintings celebrating regional natural beauty will be presented at Bella Vita and Octopuses, which are across the street and next door to the Red Piano Too Art Gallery. All activities are free and open to the public.

Come celebrate a baby shower for the birds Join the Town of Port Royal, the Fripp Audubon Club and other local birding clubs for the Second Annual Baby Shower for the Birds to celebrate the birth of hundreds of wading birds on Saturday, May 17 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Port Royal Rookery and Cypress Wetlands Trail located on Paris Avenue in Port Royal. The event will feature a guest speaker, music by Billy Drysdale, a fun scavenger hunt, tours of the wetlands, birthday

cake, snacks, beverages, and of course a lot of fun for everyone. Volunteers will be on hand to assist with identifying birds and other wildlife along the trail so this is also a wonderful educational opportunity. One of the unique things about this trail is that it allows the possibility to witness a huge rookery up close. Bring binoculars for an even closer look, but they are not required due to the proximity of the birds from the trail. Walking along the

boardwalk of this trail is amazing, not only because of the number of birds, but also because of the beauty all around. Don’t miss this outstanding free opportunity to help celebrate the wonderful wildlife our area has to offer — especially the birds. John Muir said, “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” The goal is that this event will help adults and children walk with nature and come away with more than they ever imagined.

The event is sponsored by the Town of Port Royal, Fripp Audubon and other area bird clubs, Lowcountry Master Naturalists, the YMCA, Applied Technology & Management, Port Royal Sound Foundation, Old Village Association, Historic Port Royal Foundation, Beaufort Chamber of Commerce, Lowcountry Estuarium, Drysdale Entertainment Unlimited, The Arts Council of Beaufort County, Murr Printing Beaufort and The Island News.

HELP of Beaufort benefits from canned food drive Waters Edge Methodist Church created a lofty goal of raising 4,080 canned goods during the season of Lent from March 5 through April 19 to benefit the local nonprofit HELP of Beaufort. This small Beaufort-based church set a goal larger than the congregation of 75 families could ever have raise on their own knowing they would have to get help from the community. The goal of 4,080 canned goods was inspired from the size of Beaufort’s iconic Hunting Island Lighthouse. By stacking canned goods 10 cans wide, it would take approximately 4,080 cans to build a tower as high as the lighthouse. In order to achieve this lofty goal, the Waters Edge congregation reached out to schools, neighborhoods and work places asking for further help in gathering canned goods. In 40 short days during Lent, a time in which Christians focus on tending to those in need, Waters Edge Methodist Church was able to make their goal. “We talk a lot at Waters Edge about being a church that exists for our community, not so much for ourselves. Working together to build a tower of food as high as the Hunting Island Lighthouse has been an exciting challenge for our congregation, especially knowing how many people

Thumbs Up receives grant


Thumbs Up, Inc. Children’s Learning Center recently received a $4,000 educational grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to support literacy for its after-school program for elementary and middle school children in northern Beaufort County. Specifically, the grant, titled “The Digital Reading Launch Pad,” provides funds for new hand-held computer tablets and apps for an online library of hundreds of books to improve the reading skills of struggling students. Thumbs Up students have been working with Jill Brown, a teacher from Beaufort Elementary School, on using “Google Docs” in the classroom, soon to be introduced in all elementary schools by next year. Thumbs Up Director Rosalyn Browne said, “The grant from Dollar General has greatly helped to level the playing field by giving access to today’s technology to disadvantaged children who do not have computers in the home. We have seen the children enjoy using their tablets to do more homework and reading.” Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation is proud to support initiatives that help others improve their lives through literacy and education. Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s chairman and CEO said, “At Dollar

Educators teach elementary and middle school children how to use hand-held computer tablets to improve reading skills during the after school program at the Thumbs Up Children’s Learning Center in Beaufort.

General, we are passionate about our mission of serving others and it’s exciting to see the real difference literacy and learning makes in people’s lives.” Thumbs Up, Inc. was founded in 1995 by Sister Mary Trzasko, who started a small after-school homework assistance program for children whose parents were mentally disabled. These children were at risk of failing and “falling through the cracks” because they parents lacked the skills to help them with homework. Over the last 19 years, Thumbs Up

has been led by a volunteer Board of Trustees and operates a year-round learning center that offers educational and social services for children and families in northern Beaufort County at no cost. Thumbs Up is funded by private donations, the United Way of the Lowcountry and Coastal Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. It was also one of 10 local non-profit organizations to be selected for “Lift the Lowcountry,” part of a national philanthropy day on May 6. For more information, visit www.

a.m.; by Ben-Zion Bronstein, cantorial soloist at Beth Israel at 11:30 a.m.; by Mike McFee, soloist, at Carteret Street Methodist at noon; and by the Youth Bell Choir at the Baptist Church of Beaufort at 1 p.m. The fish fry, at $9 per person, will be at 607 West Street starting at 11 a.m. Parking is also at 607 West Street. Tickets for the tour are $15 and will be available the morning of the tour along with a walking tour guide at 607 West Street. Call Jerry Stocks at 524-6997 for more information.

Bon Marché: A great deal for all By Celia Strong

With all the new wines that are introduced every week, we have compiled quite the pile of information about wines. Most of the time, that information relates specifically to the featured wine of the week. But this week, I’m thinking we can discuss some more general topics that we can apply not only to this week’s one wine, but to many more wines to come. The idea for our discussion came to me because our wine is a blend from California. As we’ve looked at other wines, we’ve learned than in some places blends are normal — not only normal, but mandatory. European countries have wine laws that dictate what varieties grow where and what wines they make and what the wines are called. Some of these laws determine minimum or maximum percentages of grapes, for example Chianti from Tuscany, Rioja from Spain, red and white Bordeaux and Côtes du Rhône from France. In California, we’ve talked about blends many times, and a long time ago, about the name “Meritage” that was “invented” for higher priced, special blends using Bordeaux varieties only. Originally, this name and idea was limited to Napa, but now the Meritage Alliance has more than 250 members, not all just in California. While “official” Meritage wines are higher priced and limited in the grapes that can be used to make them, the idea of better wines being possible when made with an assortment of grapes took hold and grew and grew. Now, a majority of wineries in California make at least one blended wine. Since not all these blends qualify as “official” Meritage wines, we are going to look at the label regulations that let us know what’s in a wine bottle. Wine labels are the way we get to know as much as we can before tasting a wine. Label laws (and we’re talking California here) help inform the consumer what is inside the bottle. All wine labels have to show the brand name — the winery name. The exact detail here means the party responsible for the bottling, mostly, that is a winery. Vintage dating on the label means a minimum of 85 percent of the grapes had to be harvested in the

Celia Strong works at Bill’s Liquor & Fine Wines on Lady’s Island.

This week’s wine is from Buehler Vineyards winery in Napa Valley, California, founded by John Buehler, Sr. in 1978. The name, Bon Marché, is a French phrase that means not literally “good market,” but “great deal.” The wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot and Malbec, and is a great deal for an everyday red at $11.99. year marked. Alcohol content has to be shown all labels as well as the volume of wine in each bottle. “Contains sulfates” is a mandatory marking if 10 parts per million or greater are present. Health warning statements are mandatory. And, various phrases, almost always fine print on the back label, tell us how much control the bottler had in the whole process of getting wine into his bottle — growing the grapes, making the wine, aging the wine, bottling the wine, etc. Finally, what type of wine it is has to be on the label. Besides the brand name, this is probably the most important piece of information. In the United States, our wines are mostly labeled for the grape variety in them. This is called a “varietal” wine. The current legal minimum is 75 percent of one grape to name the wine for that grape. A “Cabernet” has to be

The Bon Marché is a California blend.

at least 75 percent Cab. The extra 25 percent can be Cabernet, or some of it, some of whatever else is needed, according to the winemaker, to make the wine taste better, an allowance for style and pricing. While that may seem like an easy formula, it can get more complex. A “California” Cab has to be 100 percent California grown grapes — no matter what percentages of different varieties. From smaller than a state designation, like counties (Napa Valley Cab), AVAs (Spring Mountain District Cab), specific vineyards (Three Palms Vineyard Cab), more precise rules with more restrictions come into play. All of this is done to help us know what we are buying. Backing up a bit, we have to look at what happens if a winemaker likes the wine he is making better if it is not falling into these label laws. Like, it tastes better with 74 percent Cabernet and some other grapes. And, further, if the wine does not fall into the guidelines of the Meritage Alliance. The winemaker has a blend, obviously, and is allowed to call it whatever he chooses. Hence, some of the names we have on some of our favorite wines — The Prisoner, Claret, Red Splash, Rouge, and on and on. All different blends of different grapes at different prices. We’re the lucky ones, though, because we get a much wider assortment of wines to choose from — one for every single whatever. All of which gets us to this week’s

wine: Buehler Vineyards Bon Marché. Buehler is a Napa Valley winery, which is why I used Napa references. The winery was founded by John Buehler, Sr. His retirement was buying a hillside Napa property, and having his son, John, Jr., get into grape growing with him. In 1978, Buehler hand crushed his grapes and produced his first 700 cases of wine. Good results with that vintage led to increased production, until 1982, when he hired Heidi Barrett as winemaker. Heidi became a superstar in Napa winemaking and moved on in 1988, but Buehler was firmly established with a superb reputation. Today, Buehler’s vineyards include 30-year-old Cabernet vines, 30-year-old Zinfandel vines, and Russian River (Sonoma) Chardonnay vines. Since this week’s wine is a blend, you’ve got to really love the name they chose for it: Bon Marché, a French phrase. “Bon” is French for “good” and “marché” means “market.” These two words together take on a new meaning, not literally “good market,” but “great deal,” meaning a deal for us! This wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot and Malbec. The exact percentages of each are not known, for us anyhow. We are allowed to know them from largest percentage to smallest percentage, but that’s all. Really, I’m not sure knowing the exact numbers will change how much I like this wine. Bon Marché is aged in American and French oak barrels, which is good to know because that explains the toasty vanilla flavors. The textures are juicy and mouth-filling. Dark red and black fruits bounce out at you — cherries, blackberries, plums, black currants. And mocha and cocoa and vanilla and cinnamon and, if you taste really, really hard, a little bit of black licorice. Which we all know I love! This new wine is very limited in South Carolina and it is a perfect name for what it is — a great deal in an everyday red wine at only $11.99. A great find for the coming months of grilling and salads and burgers and poultry and seafood and beef and pizza and cheeses and evenings on the docks and days on the boats. Enjoy!

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

Do it now: Make a doggie first aid kit By Tracie Korol

My friend called me recently for first aid advice for his dog, William, who had caught a dew claw in the back seat car upholstery. Blood was involved but the dog was otherwise all right. However, he did need a little first aid. My friend had some of the supplies needed to care for his Best Friend, but not all and none in the same place! First aid kit instructions were emailed post haste. As a pet owners, we need to make sure to have basic first aid supplies for occasions such as this. Even the bestcared-for dog may become sick or get injured at some point in his life. If your dog falls victim to illness or accident, you will need to do what you can to get him out of immediate danger and keep him comfortable until you can get him to a veterinarian. You should also be prepared to care for you dog in the event of weather disasters occasional in this area. Of course, you can always buy a premade K9 Crash Kit but I’ve found that personalizing a kit for my Best Friend — because who knows him better? — gives me a level of confidence when crisis hits. I don’t want to be rummaging through myriad glassine packets looking for a particular item when time might be a factor. Your dog’s personal kit needs to be

distinctive, easy to find, easy to transport and easy to use. I’ve had the same Huckleberry Hound metal lunchbox for just about as long as I’ve had dogs. Once a year I update the contents. I also have a smaller-size snap-lid box kit I keep in the car. Taped to the inside lid of my big kit is a card with the phone number of my current vet, the closest emergency vet clinic (address and directions) and the Animal Poison Control Center (888-4ANI-HELP or 888-426-2235). At the bottom of the box I include a copy of pertinent medical records (in a Ziploc and a current photo (in case he decides to run at an inopportune moment). Tucked along the side is a lightweight slip lead. Along the other side I keep the Dog Only digital thermometer. Mine is a kid version with a blue dog head handle that I found at the grocery store.

your dog thermometer. Next, I load the actual medical supplies: rolls of gauze — in a size relational to the size of the dog — for wrapping wounds or muzzling a panicked pet; a pair of blunt scissors; tweezers; nail clippers; and a Tick Key. Then, non-stick pads in a couple of sizes to control bleeding and protect a wound. I include a roll of adhesive tape AND a roll of duct tape for securing the gauze wrap. A dog may be able to tear through the adhesive tape in record time but duct tape will slow him down marginally. Also, a self-cling bandage that stretches and sticks to itself but not to fur. I also throw in a couple of baby-size sweat socks just in case I need to protect a paw or two. Grouped together in another Ziploc

is a tube of OTC antibiotic ointment, liquid diphenhydramine (Benadryl), saline solution (to clean a wound or flush grit out of eyes), travel bottles of Betadine, hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting if directed by Poison Control only), Milk of Magnesia (to absorb poisons) and a 10 cc syringe (no needle) to administer liquids. In the same bag I also include a bottle of arnica tablets (to reduce swelling), aconitum (for shock), calendula cream (for skin irritations) and bottle of Rescue Remedy that at a time of trauma we both can use. In the category of You Never Know: a travel bottle of Dawn dishwashing liquid to clean off oil or something sticky, an emergency foil blanket, a penlight (because emergencies happen at night, too), and a pair of needle nose pliers — there was that one time my lab thought touching a porcupine was a good idea. When you personalize your own kit you can include items specific to your dog: karo syrup for a diabetic emergency or an EPI pen if your pet has a severe reaction to stinging insects. And finally, take a pet first aid and CPR class to learn more. And remember — the life you save may be your dog’s!
