Here’s to a happy and safe Halloween By Lee Levesque

What an amazing time of the year to be a child, Halloween ushers in the holiday season, and of course, some wonderful treats. But along with the fun times comes increased potential for severe injury or worse. We ask everyone to take just a moment this October to consider a few simple measures aimed at helping our children create positive memories of candy and costumes not casts or, God forbid, coffins. Here are our recommendations for making sure everyone goes home safe at the end of the night: S: Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and flexible. A: Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups and always have an adult present.

Lee Levesque is a Firefighter and Public Affairs Officer at Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District. Contact him at 843-252-3431.

F: Fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you. E: Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. H: Hold a flashlight while trick-ortreating to help you see and others see you. A: Always keep the kids walking, running can cause trips and falls. L: Look both ways before crossing the street. Use crosswalks wherever possible.

L: Lights on at a house stop in! Lights off, pass on by. O: Only walk on sidewalks or the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe. W: Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls. E: Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. E: Entering homes to get candy is unsafe! N: Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flameresistant costumes. Follow these simple steps and you can count on a fun filled and SAFE HALLOWEEN. As always, if you have any questions about safety, feel free to contact your local fire department.

More than half the structural fires in Beaufort during the past 12 months have started in the kitchen, well above the national average and enough of a concern that the Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department is launching a “war on kitchen fires” in conjunction with Fire Prevention Week through October 13. In the past 12 months the BeaufortPort Royal Fire Department has responded to 26 reported fires in buildings. Of those, 14 originated in the kitchen, seven were caused be electrical shorts and two were caused by improperly discarded smoking materials, according to department records. “Over 53 percent of all of our fires originate in the kitchen,” Beaufort Fire Chief Sammy Negron said. October is Fire Safety Month and Oct 7-13, is Fire Prevention Week. “Our department is scheduled to conduct 16 fire prevention presentations this month,” said Capt. John Robinson, training and education officer for the BeaufortPort Royal Fire Department. “Every presentation we do has an element of kitchen safety.” Here are the key messages about preventing home fires: • Pay Attention: The leading cause of kitchen fires is unattended cooking. • Have working smoke alarms. • Use extension cords properly. • Candles: Always be sure the candles are extinguished before leaving the house. • Smoking materials: Use proper ash containers and extra care. To speak to a fire prevention specialist, contact the Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department at 843-525-7055 or email

commentary beaufort county school board district 3

They are listed in alphabetical order. We did not have room for their entire submissions in the paper, so you can read the full articles at our website,

michael rivers

By Michael Rivers, Present District 3 School Board Representative and Seeking Reelection People over politics; I believe all children can learn. Our children must attain the best education possible and to do this we must recognize our differences as our strengths. While we celebrate our differences we must all work towards the education that meets the needs of all the children. I am a 1976 Beaufort High School graduate. I am an United States Air Force veteran where I worked in general accounting; managing hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars. I have three children: Monica, Michelle and Michael Jr. I am also the proud grandfather of twin grandsons: Jeremiah and Jeremy. I am an ordained minister. Honors graduate; Magna Cum Laude from Claflin University in Organizational Management. I graduated from Technical College of the Low Country in Computer Assisted Design and Drafting. I am also a graduate from

DeVry Institute of Technology: electronics. I have also studied Business Management at the Community College of the Air Force, Community College of Philadelphia, Dekalb Community College, University of South Carolina and TCL. I served as a Board Member on Beaufort County Recreation Commission and Parks and Leisure Services; a public servant. I believe that we must prepare our children for the world of tomorrow including being fluent in multiple languages and technology literate. The rapidly changing demographics and constant technology changes will continue to have an impact as well as becoming a stimulant that should help us to prepare all children for success in a global society. Board members must understand that need for technology literacy and

acknowledging the shifting demographics, requires an educational approach that will allow all children the ability to compete for the jobs of the future. Education is the most important issue facing our country today. Education should be viewed not as an expense but seen as an investment: A national security issue. Without access for all children to good quality education, our ability to compete as a nation in a global economy will be limited. Fiscal responsibility should be a priority. However, Beaufort County School District also has a responsibility to provide those resources and method(s) of delivery needed to address academic achievement for a diverse student population. Parental involvement and community participation are equally important. There needs to be effective communication between parents, teachers and schools. BCSD

must accept responsibility and accountability for all children education outcomes; effective leadership. I am about children, not politics, not any persons or groups’ agenda, or vengeance, or self-serving motives. I am independent of any external groups or philosophies and fully committed to all children. They are our future. I believe that the board will continue to face challenges, so the board members must be able to cope with complex and diverse issues. I will continue to bring to the table insights that are designed to increase and broaden the discussion on complex issues. Issues include debate over high stakes testing, federal requirements, state requirements, governance, Board’s role in education, finance models, alternate educational options, choice plans, etc.

bernie schein

By Bernie Schein, Candidate for District 3 School Board Representative I’m running for a seat on the Beaufort County school board, district 3. I’m running hard, I’m running fast, and I’m running for the children of Beaufort County. How hard? How fast? Call me, and I’ll call you back within 24 hours. I’m a native of Beaufort, a lifelong educator with a master’s degree in education from Harvard University and 40 years of experience in public and private schools. I was a principal at three schools, including Yemassee Elementary and Junior High School and Port Royal Elementary School. I have published a book on my experiences entitled “If Holden Caulfield Were in My Classroom: Inspiring Love, Creativity and Intelligence in Middle School Kids.” I’ve worked with every kind of kid, parent,

teacher and administrator imaginable. I speak about it, write about it, and consult. I’m a student of students, of kids, of teachers, of parents, of who they are and how they learn. I’m still learning and I’m still inspired. I’ve devoted my life to kids, who I think are great fun, and who move and touch me and deserve the very best we can give them. They have to learn and discover what they need and want to go after it. To help them, we’ve got to see the world not only through our eyes, but through theirs. The farther we remove ourselves from kids and classrooms, the less we know. You can’t run a school system like General Motors any more than you can run a school or a classroom or raise kids at home that way. They’re too interesting, too exciting, too

screwy and nutty, too complicated. Board policies and discussions and considerations should reflect the passion that many of us, as teachers and parents, have for kids, and not just our own. The board, at present, does not. Both my opponents, one of whom is the chairman, appear to me too far removed from the kids to really know who they are and what they need and what policies will best enable educators and parents to help these kids. The Chairman wants to, but “wanting to” is not enough. Civility, which he has provided, is not enough. Respect among board members is not enough. Placating each other is not enough. Yes, there is tact and decorum now, but what has that tact and decorum done for one child in Beaufort County?

Board members throwing things at each other, which my opponent, the chairman, has mercifully stopped, was admittedly counterproductive. But board members fighting for our kids? Sorry, but they don’t truly know our kids. I’ve been to board meetings, I regularly watch the meetings on local television. They’re deadening, ineffective, trivial, sloppy, and illconceived; in short, a distraction from the real issues. If elected, I’ll do my best to minimize bricks and mortar, top-down leadership and bloated bureaucracy, and focus instead on what makes our kids truly smart — smart teachers, smart counselors and social workers, perceptive learning specialists, inspired curricula and instructional programs, and strong, healthy peer and parent-child relationships.

fred washington

By Fred S. Washington, Jr., Present District 11 Representative and Newly Drawn District 3 Candidate For those who may not know me, let me first introduce myself. For five-plus years I have served as chairman of the Beaufort County Board of Education — selected and elected by my peers on the school board. I believe my strength is bringing together people of differing opinions and working to find a common path forward — an essential skill when there are 11 seats on the school board. I am seeking re-election to District 3 because there is much work still to be done, chief among them selection of the next School Superintendent and ensuring our students continue to gain better educations to prepare them for a bright future. I am a native Beaufortonian — born on Parris Island Oct. 3, 1946 — and the youngest of seven children of the late Fred Washington Senior and Sheldonia Washington. A product of the Beaufort County public schools, I am a proud 1964 4

graduate of Robert Smalls High School. In 1968 I received my Bachelor’s degree from Boston University. I am married to Dr. Barbara Morgan, Director of Dental Services at BJHCHS, Inc. We have two daughters (Bria and Samone) who graduated from Beaufort High School and I have a third daughter (Danica) who graduated from Beaufort Academy. My employment and volunteer history includes working for four years in the Residence Life Division at Boston University; VISTA Volunteer and later Supervisor-Director of Hawthorne House Community Center, Roxbury,MA;ManpowerDirectoratBeaufortJasper Comprehensive Health; Pupil Personnel Services Director for the Beaufort County Schools; Director of the Beaufort County Department of Social Services (a state agency) for over 27 years; served on the Beaufort Joint Planning Commission; Lowcountry Council of Governments Board; Beaufort County

United Way Allocation Committee; SC Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations; Boys and Girls Club Board; Beaufort Marine Institute Board; Beaufort Housing Authority Board; BC First Steps Partnership Board (charter member); Technical College of the Lowcountry Area Commission; chair of the Beaufort Fund Advisory Committee of the Coastal Community Foundation; and elected to Beaufort City Council from July 1979 to July 1993. In November 2006 I was elected to the BC School Board. In January 2007 my Board colleagues elected me chairman for a two year term and re-elected me chairman in 2009. Voters re-elected me to the Board in November 2010 and in January 2011 the Board voted me to serve as chairman because of my ability to bring together differing points of view to Work Together for Improved Results. In my five plus years as chairman of the Board of Education we have

significantly increased student achievement (but are not where we need to be). Today in our schools, except for second grade reading, ALL grades 3-8 and ALL subjects are above national averages. According to rankings by the S.C. Education Oversight Committee, we have four schools rated Excellent now – five years ago, NONE were rated Excellent. This year we had 27 schools earn 34 Palmetto Gold, Silver or Closing Achievement Gap awards, compared to just three schools winning those honors in 2006. We have built six new schools and closed/ consolidated three schools while cutting our budget almost $20 million and kept 70 percent of all funds in the classroom. College scholarships increased 50 percent from 2008 to 2012 going from $10 million to $14.8 million. But much remains to be done. We have too many of our students, particularly minority students, who are not achieving at levels they are capable.

Yes, it’s ladies’ night! Enjoy fun activities plus tips for healthy lifestyle at BMH Girls’ Night Out A pair of fake boobs could save your life. They aren’t implants, but rather breast models that health care providers from Beaufort Memorial will use to teach women how to perform monthly breast self-exams during a Girls’ Night Out event the hospital is hosting next week. As much party as wellness fair, the free ladies-only program will feature music, munchies, games and prizes, along with displays and demonstrations designed to help women make informed choices about their health. “We call it ‘health-Utainment’ because we’re combining fun activities with advice on how to improve your well-being,” said Emily Harris, who is helping coordinate the event for the hospital. “If you can present the information in a way that engages women, they’re more likely to make changes to better their lives.” The breast models are one of the many health-oriented activities planned for the

If they haven’t had their annual mammogram, they will be able schedule one at either Beaufort Memorial Women’s Imaging Center in Beaufort or Beaufort Memorial Bluffton Medical Services. BMH breast care coordinator Jackie Brown also will be available to answer questions and explain the

latest diagnostic testing being used to determine if a lump is benign or cancerous. Girls’ Night Out will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18 at The Shed in the town of Port Royal. This year’s event will focus on breast care, nutrition, anti-aging and joint health. To make it more entertaining, the information will be presented in the form of games. In the “Ta-Tas Toss,” women will be asked to answer true or false questions related to breast care by throwing a

Jerod … Just wanted to thank you and let you know that you helped me more in two hours than any other computer guru has helped in weeks. Plus, you did it on our boat here at the marina, which was much more convenient for us than going to a store someplace and waiting for assistance. From importing e-mail contacts that no one else could transfer from my pc to my new mac to setting up a new business account, you did a fantastic job and did it quickly. I would recommend you to anyone who needs help with a computer. ~ From Jody Reynolds:

In addition to the games and activities, several BMH physicians will be on hand to discuss topics of interest. There is no admission fee to attend Girls’ Night Out, but preregistration is required.

MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS Through October 13, the South Carolina mental health community will commemorate Mental Illness Awareness Week. As part of this national, yearly observance, selected sites across South Carolina will offer free depression assessments to the public throughout this week and on National Depression Screening Day, October 11. Mental Illness Awareness Week was established in 1990 by the U.S. Congress to raise awareness about mental illness and its effects on individuals and families. Many adults will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in their lifetime, and about 6 percent of adults, or 1 in 17, suffer from a serious mental illness. To learn more about mental illness, South Carolina Mental Health Awareness Week events, how to find treatment, or locate your local mental health center, call the South Carolina Department of Mental Health at 800763-1024, or visit www.

A look at Monsanto: Part II In the 1960’s I lived in the quiet of the country with my grandparents, and fortunately I was young enough to be sheltered from most of the harshness of farm life. Sure, the occasional cow that I had named would disappear, and I would refuse to eat meat for awhile in his or her memory, but I have no hard stories of backbreaking hoeing or thriving individualism from learning to drive a tractor at age five. On most days, my sisters and I simply disappeared into the fields around us. In spring, we might help drop seeds haphazardly into rows, our part in what would become a vast ocean of green, as our garden melded with endless rows of corn over the summer. It was this experience that allowed me to make “farm-talk” with Aussie farmers when I went to Australia in 2010, as farmers really hadn’t changed much since I was child. Or had they? My grandfather, every day, twice a day, after milking 20 cows, shoveled the day’s leavings out a small opening at the side of the barn. When the manure pile got high enough, he shoveled this same manure again, this time into a manure spreader, a machine that spread the manure over his fields as fertilizer. An arduous practice, but organic in nature. But then that’s all there was when I was a child. Everything was organic. There wasn’t anything else. My grandfather saved part of his corn harvest as seed for next year, shoveling

this precious dry grain into a bin ... more manual labor. In 2012, 80%-85 % of the corn grown in the United States is the genetically modified. Genetically modified “Bt corn” has a bacteria (Bacillus thuringiensis) inserted into the seeds that kills common insects that might prey on the corn. And fertilizer in this century is predominantly a chemical mix. The manure spreader has gone out of fashion. The generations of farmers beyond my grandfather’s day have been promised by the biotech industry, a larger crop per acre — and if the yields are in fact greater, then maybe we will be able to divert less water and cut down fewer trees to make room for our ever growing demand for more food. Sounds like a win for the farmer and a win for the environment.

two things that never lie Two things never lie: your checkbook and your calendar. Every time we make a choice about how we spend our time and money we are making choices that reflect something about what we value. Making tough and often emotional choices lies at the heart of planning for a secure financial future. One of the biggest mistakes we make as we approach planning for the future is failing to realize how often we make decisions that do not match what we say is really important to us. We often say that time with family is the most important thing, but does the way we spend our time reflect that? Does the way we spend or save money reflect what we say

we value? I heard somewhere that the average American family spends more time planning a trip to Disneyworld than they spend thinking about and planning for their financial future. From experience, I’m not sure that’s far off. So one of the very best things we can do to make a difference in our financial lives is simply to THINK ABOUT IT, and then be radically self aware about what our calendars and checkbooks say about our priorities. If we don’t like what we see, we can slowly start to make changes and hopefully repeating that process will give us a great chance at ending up at the right place.

But, do we even need more food than what is being currently grown? In Part One of this series, it was noted that in Western cultures we throw away 50% of the food we grow. Time Magazine from March 2012 reports that in developing countries, due to poor distribution and a lack of refrigeration, the standard is 30% of the food that is grown is wasted, and at times, 70%. When you look at these facts, and others, it would appear that we need Monsanto simply because we are such poor stewards of what we already have. The pledge, however, that biotechnology made us, of more “bang for the buck” has unfortunately proven to be an empty promise, according to a new report published by The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), called “Failure to Yield: Evaluating the Performance of Genetically Engineered Crops.” This report notes that, “despite 20 years of research and 13 years of commercialization, genetic engineering

has failed to significantly increase U.S. crop yields.” Doug Gurian-Sherman, a biologist in the UCS Food and Environment Program and author of the report, says, “In comparison, traditional breeding continues to deliver better results.” OK, so the yields are not better, but we’re all used to hype. We can accept that. The question, however, that we are currently struggling within the United States is whether or not we have a right to know what we are eating. And finally, just for the sake of curiosity, what if farmer of today wanted to stick with the standards of my grandfather, a man who only exists in the black and white pictures of the past? What are his chances of not catching the ire of the biotech industry? Would it be David against Goliath? Just how big is the biotech industry, and how far is its reach? To be continued...

On September 22, Matthew Cieplowski, grandson of Mary and Ski Cieplowski of Rivers Court, pitched a no-hitter against the Charleston Braves. Matthew plays for the Beaufort Breeze, a travel baseball team. Their tournament was for players ages 13 and under. Matthew is very happy to report that the Breeze defeated the Braves 2-0. Way to go, Matthew! A wonderful birthday luncheon was held at the Lady’s Island Country Club to celebrate the birthdays of Amy Stoeffler of Pickens Street and Nancy Steeves of James Byrne. Nancy and Amy received many lovely gifts and birthday cards (one not so nice!). A few hours were spent catching up with each other, and watching as Nancy and Amy opened their gifts. A significant group of Royal Pines friends and neighbors attended “Cheeseburger in Paradise” at the Port Royal Landing Marina. This event’s proceeds benefit The FRIENDS of Caroline Hospice — a very worthy Beaufort community organization. A few Royal Pines residents volunteer their time at the hospice. There are a variety of activities and events that

continually need help such as Festival of Trees; Fashion Show; Bands, Brews & BBQ; Cheeseburgers in Paradise; The Red Door; and at the hospice office in Port Peggy Royal. If you have Chandler time and would like to help, please call the FRIENDS office at 525-6257. Just an FYI — I know there are several Royal Pines residents who have family and friends living in the North. Jet Blue has recently announced that they now fly to Charleston and have a one way fare of $76 between Charleston and New York. No, I’m not connected in any way to Jet Blue, just someone who loves a bargain. Lately, when the Royal Pines Bunco Babes have their monthly gathering, the husbands of the women have been getting together for dinner. I call their group the Romeo’s — Retired Old Men Eating Out. There are now two Bunco teams playing — the second Tuesday and third Wednesday of each month. If anyone is interested in subbing, please contact me at buddysoma@embarqmail. com.


She talked funny and didn’t like grits By Cherimie Crane Weatherford It always mystified me that cows would risk such agonizing pain just to stretch their necks through the barbed wire for the mere taste, sometimes smell, of a single green patch of grass, all the while standing on the greenest grass in Mississippi. Maybe it was because when I was young I didn’t fancy Play Station, I didn’t live close to other school-aged children, I certainly wasn’t the Barbie type, or possibly it was the basic fascination with any creature that covets so deeply the very same thing that they have. Hours upon hours I spent in the company of these crud-bearing creatures. Naming them, singing to them — yes, all cows love Stevie Nicks — or just observing their often odd behavior. Many life lessons were gleaned through my slightly onesided captive creature conversations. Straining with all their might, those cows morphed into master yoginis. Twisting, turning and often ripping their coat clear from their skin. No matter how many times I thumped them on their head, had serious conversations about the err of their ways and even tried positive reinforcement, it was always in vain. At some point one

unfortunate grass gazer would get stuck frequently at 3 in the morning. Besides my little sister reaching out to all ears in the universe anytime she caught me doing Cherimie something I was not Crane Weatherford supposed to do, these cows were the loudest thing within in miles. Screaming out for help to untwist the mess they clearly twisted. Anyone who has befriended these hardheaded animals knows barbed wire to the neck isn’t enough of a deterrent, therefore it was common place to stumble out of bed and watch Daddy untangle the bewildered beast. Through the eyes of a sleepy child, cow capers were most entertaining. Ah, the joy of living in the middle of nowhere. As I got older and spent less time explaining the laws of logic to less than charismatic cows, I couldn’t help but notice obvious similarities. Cows aren’t the only creatures willing to stick themselves in the neck while reaching for something they

already have. Females are astoundingly gifted in this aspect, entirely unable to see beauty in their very own mirror, endlessly reaching out for something new to enhance. Men do the very same things, just a bit more categorical. Men have absolutely no ability to see the grass on which they stand, only the grass slightly out of reach. I am fairly certain at any given time there is a man being thumped on the head because he just can’t help but risk injury over outstretching his bounds. Very well could be nature, or the simple fact that most mammals aren’t nearly as smart as the Discovery Channel claims. Guilt isn’t a stranger in my pasture, either. If I was told I could only stay out until dark, perfectly impossible it proved to be. If Daddy said to only go up 10 limbs of my favorite tree, 11 was the only distance acceptable to my little lingering hands. The only swimming hole I desired to dip my dirty feet was the only one off limits. Of all the animals that surrounded my Southern summers, it was the forbidden Rooster I just had to tame. And just as often as those darn cows would squeal and squirm over the mess they made, so did I. Sometimes I had to untangle myself, and sometimes Daddy would come running. Recently, I reached my neck out to

unfamiliar pastures. A publisher painted a picture clearly of a dream that seemed tastier and worth a neck pinch or two. It required me to stop writing for The Island News. Hesitantly, I began taking direction, advice and criticism, none of which is comfortable for me. Twisting and turning, I tried desperately to crane my neck to reach a patch that just wasn’t my own. I would have to change everything I think, everything I feel, and the only voice I have would no longer be mine. During a conference call regarding a subpar submission, she suggested that I refrain from using the word “y’all.” My big hair stood straight up on my head, my mouth flew open as it so often does and the bendable dream chaser told her preaching publisher exactly what she could do with all of her advice. After a 3 minute tirade of my recently withheld opinions, it seemed clear we were not a match made in heaven. I quickly untangled myself and managed to pull away from the piercing barbed wire with few scratches and only a tuft of missing hair. She proudly predicted I would be nothing more than a small town writer for a small town paper. My pasture is small, but it is green and plentiful. I will be just fine staying within my fence. After all, she didn’t like grits and she talked funny.

Bridging cultures and generations through music and arts education This month, musicians from the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Spiritual Ensemble will travel to Beaufort to share their creative process with high school students, and then release their joyful noises at a public concert at Battery Creek High. This arts-education celebration is a direct result of the ambitions of ARTworks, the community arts center in Beaufort, and executive director JW Rone. “We’ve observed that there are racial, cultural and generational audience diversity issues which could be addressed through creative musicbased projects,” commented Rone. “Our Bridging initiative is our way of addressing both youth education and audience diversity, of race and age, by enlisting prominent musicians to perform and teach in Beaufort County.” This powerful outreach began in 2011 when ARTworks was contacted by the Arts Education Counselor of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) earlier this year to inform staff that ARTworks had been hand-selected for a non-competitive “Arts Education in American Communities” grant. The NEA soon approved ARTworks’ plan for the “Bridging Cultures & Generations through Music” initiative, supporting it with $10,000 from the NEA, to be matched by funds from the community.

The goals for the project are: to introduce students and the community to the musicians and their artforms; to inspire young musicians in our community regardless of race and socioeconomic status; and to encourage audience diversity and assist in bridging cultural and generational divides. The Charleston Symphony Orchestra Spiritual Ensemble will be in residency and in concert Saturday, October 20, at the Battery Creek High School Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. The ensemble’s residency will include two days of vocal music classes in Whale Branch Early College High School and Battery Creek High School. Their work will culminate in a community performance of “Circa 1871: An Ode to the Fisk University Jubilee Singers.” Now in its fourth season, The ensemble strives to honor the devout musical tradition that AfricanAmericans formed as slaves after arriving in this country and in particular its history in the Lowcountry. General admission is $17; students & groups of 10 or more, $12; children under 12, $7. For more information call 843-379-2787, www. Battery Creek High School is located at 1 Blue Dolphin Drive, Beaufort, SC 29906.

organ concerts at parish church of st. helena Adrienne Cox Olson will perform in the fall series of “Friday Organ Concerts at Noon” held at the Parish Church of St. Helena, Beaufort, on Friday, October 19. Dr. Olson’s concert will be the first of four concerts featuring former organists/music directors of the local Episcopal Church over the past 20 years. The church is concluding its celebration of its tricentennial year (1712-2012). Dr. Olson is currently director of music and organist for Grace Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, Tenn. These 45-minute Adrienne midday concerts are free and open to the public. For more Cox Olson information, contact Pat Gould, the music director at the church, at or 843-522-1712 or visit

“Celeste and Jesse Forever” from The Indie Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts Monday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. Synopsis: Celeste and Jesse met in high school, married young and are growing apart. Now 30, Celeste (Type A) is the driven owner of her own media consulting firm, Jesse (Type Zzzz) is once again unemployed and in no rush to do anything with his life. Celeste is convinced that divorcing Jesse is the right thing to do — she is on her way up, he is on his way nowhere, and if they do it now instead of later, they can remain supportive friends. Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even though he is still in love with her. As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, and her decision, which once seemed mature and progressive, now seems impulsive and selfish. Ratings & Reviews: Internet sites IMDb: 6.7 and Rotten Tomatoes: Critics/70 and Audience/76. Good marks. Critics: Philadelphia Inquirer: “... delightfully funny”; Boston Globe: “... sardonic, hip, heartfelt”; New York Times: “… swell…”; USA Today: “…delves into the complicated heart of relationships, exposes some painful truths and allows

melancholy to co-exist alongside breezy humor”; Roger Ebert: “... a good-hearted romantic comedy about a likable couple — so likable, indeed, that it swims upstream against the current...”. Previewer Comments: This romance drama with lots of funny moments illustrates the paths of change that occur in all romantic love couplings. What starts out one way is sure to change on both sides in the future. Things change ... stuff happens ... we are people, after all, and though love may remain constant overall, it certainly ebbs and flows as reality impinges on our being as married couples. To borrow from the Bard — this film asks the question over and over — “To be or not to be.” Except in this case the issue is: To be friends or to married? An enjoyable film. Rated: R for language, sexual content, and social drug use. Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5. Call USCB Center for the Arts box office at 843-521-4145 or purchase day of performance.


A preview of Gaetano Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore” by The Met Opera: Live in HD at the USCB Center for the Arts, Saturday, Oct. 13, at 12:55 p.m. There’s an expression in the music world about the kind of melodies that stick with you after you’ve heard them once or twice. It goes something like this: It’s easy to get it into your ear, but hard to get it out of your memory. Donizetti’s “L’Elisir d’Amore” is a fine example. In the words of opera historian Charles Osborne: “From the high-spirited bars of its prelude to the end of its equally happy finale, there is hardly a dull moment in this entire miraculous score in the most engaging of all comic operas.” The Met’s General Manager, Peter Gelb pretty much assured its success with another headline appearance by the remarkable coloratura soprano, Anna Netrebko. Many will recall last season’s opener in which she starred in the tragic title role of Donizetti’s “Anna Bolena.” But for “L’Elisir,” we’ll see and hear her as Netrebko-light. Synopsis: Nemorino is a poor young farm laborer in love with Adina, a wealthly landowner who seems not to reciprocate his love. When he overhears Adina recounting to her companions a confused version of the story of Tristan, Isolde and their love potion, the gullible Nemorino allows an itinerant quack, Dr. Dulcamara, to sell him an elixir (actually a cheap red wine) which, he is assured, will win Adina for him if he partakes of it. But when Adina announces that she is about to marry the dashing Sergeant Belcore, Nemorino is

persuaded by Dulcamara to purchase some more of the magic potion, which he is able to pay for only by allowing Belcore to enlist him in the army. Meanwhile, news of the death of Nemorino’s rich uncle has reached the village. This makes his heir, Nemorino, suddenly popular with the village girls, a state of affairs which he attributes to the elixir. When Adina learns that he has enlisted in order to win her, she realizes that she really loves him. All ends happily, even for Belcore who tells himself that there are plenty of other women in the world. Musical highlights: Act I: All it takes is the sound of a trumpet to begin about twenty minutes of the most comical scene in all of opera. It heralds the arrival of the pompous charlatan, Dr. Dulcamara who proclaims that he has magic elixirs for all occasions. “Udite, udite, o rustici...” (Give me your ear, rustic ones...). A mesmerized Nemorino is duped into buying a bottle after assurances that it will win him Adina’s love. An engaging duet begins with Nemorino’s “Voglio dire — lo stupendo elisir...” Act II : Nemorino sings: “Una furtiva lagrima...” (A furtive tear...). A “must” aria for every Italian tenor’s concert repertoire! Two impassioned stanzas in which he voices his feelings for Adina. The finale: With Nemorino and Adina happily standing by, Dulcamara induces a buying frenzy by the villagers, who scramble for every bottle he has. Then he makes a quick departure before anyone — except Nemorino — realizes that it was just cheap wine.

Most people have met the owner of Plums and the Saltus River Grill, Lantz Price, but they may be surprised to find out that he was an American Literature major at the University of New Hampshire, spent his last semester at Cambridge University in England, then traveled around Europe and later sailed to New Zealand and lived there for a year before sailing back. He also met the love of his life, Jen, at college, but they broke up after dating for four years, only to get back together 10 years later after accidentally running into each other in Boston. They fell deeply in love again and got married in 1999. They have two children, daughter Hayden, 12, and son Grayson, 10. Lantz’s parents Warren and Babs were both Southerners, and Lantz was born in Virginia, but was raised in Rye, New Hampshire, when Lantz’s dad, a Delta Air Lines pilot, was based in nearby Boston. When his parents retired, they wanted to get back to the South, so they moved to Beaufort, which is how Lantz first came to know the Lowcountry. Says Lantz, “As I visited them on school breaks, I fell in love with the peace and tranquility and openness of the marshes and outer islands then, in turn, the whole culture of the South. After all that travel to remote places, I longed to return to Beaufort.” Lantz moved to Beaufort 20 years ago (in 1992) and joined his mother in the restaurant business. She had bought Plums on the waterfront in Beaufort in 1987; it had been started by Terry Murray and Dale Fairbanks a year earlier. Says Lantz, “I starting working in restaurants when I was 14. My first job was as a dishwasher at a place called Abercrombie and Finch in Rye, N.H. My Dad said,‘go get a job and don’t cross the highway,’ so I went out to Route 1 and walked into the first kitchen I came to on our side of the highway. They hired me on the spot and I got home late and they were all wondering what happened to me. I said, ‘you told me to go get a job?! Right?’ ” Lantz continues, “And the kitchen culture of the 70’s and 80’s shaped my entire young adult life. It was a “Kitchen Confidential” world and I lived in New England which, at the time, was a thriving epicenter of American seafood restaurants with raw bars and Jazz. Classic methods of cooking hadn’t really been dismantled yet so the chefs were mostly still old ARTS NCEouP rselfer APPFoLr IA The Do-It-Y dS N ALL bRA S ME d NEXT A dAY SEAYRVICE

school with French methods. Picture fresh New England fish — smothered with heavy buttery sauces.” By expanding Plums from a breakfast and lunch place to dinner (which he cooked) and putting the emphasis on top quality local seafood, Lantz helped make Plums a hit with both locals and tourists. Today he is executive chef and owner of both the Beaufort and Bluffton Plums. He says of all the jobs that come with running three restaurants — he opened Saltus River Grill eight years ago — he loves “working the line” the best, which means working as a line cook during those challenging dinner “rush hours.” Says Lantz,” That’s where my love of cooking started — in the insular culture of the slightly insane world of the back of the house in restaurants. It was a blend of art and creativity with hard, hard work and the never ending desire to cook great food and have fun. I love to be creative and work really hard. I believe that you must really love what you do and you must passionate about it, even if it is not the career of you’re choosing. You spend so much time working that you need to find the parts about it that make you happy and

build something of your life around it. I’m just lucky I love my career. I even enjoy washing dishes. I love the order of the final result and sense of accomplishment.” Regarding his customers at the two restaurants, Saltus and Plums, which are only a block away from each other in Beaufort, Lantz said, “My customers are different in the two different restaurants. They range from true locals to seasonal locals to tourists. Most love food. Some know a great deal about food and it can be a challenge to please them. Sometimes pleasing them is the most rewarding. When a local loves your shrimp and grits, you know you’re on the right path.” Learning the local ways of doing things has been a 20-year learning experience for Lantz. “I love the pride of the locals and especially the way they keep their knowledge of all the things special about this place to themselves,” he said.“When you are allowed through that door, you can still only experience it slowly, layer upon layer. First it may be an oyster roast, then a trip to a fish camp, then a hunt with hours of stories into the night with brown liquor and half lies. Cooking Southern food is very much the same. It seems easy at first, until you learn the right way to do it, and that it’s not about the final result, it’s about the many layers needed to get there.” Lantz, who spends a lot of time in Bluffton these days at the new Plums that he opened earlier this year in Belfair Towne Village, still enjoys overseeing Saltus and the original Plums on Bay Street. Says Lantz, “The best thing about the restaurant business is being able to please people with something you created using ingredients that are special, local or supportive of your community. When the restaurant is going full tilt, and the concept is working from thought to the table, it can be like a song that just works perfectly with melody, lyrics and rhythm. It’s fun to watch and it’s even more fun to be in the middle of it.” And Lantz’s approach has been working. His restaurants have won all kinds of awards over the years, from multiple “Best of ” Readers Choice Awards in different publications to a Civitas Award from the Chamber of Commerce. But Lantz says, “The best award I can get is a compliment from a customer about an experience they had at one of my restaurants.” Lantz credits much of his success to the fine staff at each of his restaurants. “Each group is very much like a family. They work hard together and play hard together; they are creative people and are fiercely loyal.” As far as the future is concerned, Lantz plans to keep serving up the best he can at his restaurants while taking time to enjoy the hunting, fishing, surfing and all the activities that his adopted Lowcountry has to offer.

Can cancer care have an extra measure of excellence?

Just days after moving to Hilton Head Island, Laura Braun received devastating news: she had breast cancer. Laura weighed a dizzying array of options, then confidently chose the Beaufort Memorial Keyserling Cancer Center. She was impressed by her experienced team of specialists, their close coordination with her Beaufort Memorial breast surgeon, and the center’s Duke affiliation. Because of that affiliation, she didn’t have to go far for the latest and best care.

sports beaufort high vs bluffton

sports notes

Beaufort High School lost to Bluffton last Friday night, 34-10. A failure to capitalize doomed the Eagles, including a failure to score inside the five and turning over the ball after shutting the Bobcats down inside the five and taking over on downs.

“Beaufort’s best Back Porch for beer and burgers”

The University of South Carolina Beaufort women’s soccer team doesn’t make a practice of soaking coach Ed Heberling with the water bucket after every win, but this one was special. The Sand Sharks earned the first Sun Conference victory in the program’s brief history Sunday, holding off visiting Warner for a 3-2 win at Fin Land Field. Freshmen Maddie Zak and Jessica Tooley scored first-half goals, and sophomore Alexa Muffley added a goal in the second half for USCB (6-6, 1-2 Sun Conference).

The University of South Carolina Beaufort baseball team has added former Auburn University player and assistant coach Wes Gilmer to its staff, head coach Bryan Lewallyn announced. Gilmer, 23, was a career .286 hitter for the Tigers from 2008-11 before joining the coaching staff as a student assistant in 2012 while completing his degree in exercise science. He was named team captain as a senior in 2011.

Dataw Island unveils clubhouse renovation One of the characteristics of a great community and club is the ability to be constantly improving. Count Dataw Island Club as one of those great clubs. Over the last two years, Dataw Island has completed the renovation of two golf courses and most recently the reopening of their clubhouse dining facilities on September 22. “The change is dramatic,” said David Warren, director of marketing. “It is simply beautiful in terms of concept, architectural design, interior design and construction, and the members are delighted over the changes.” When Alcoa, the original developer of Dataw Island, built the clubhouse in 1983, the dining emphasis was on fine dining in the dining room and to a lesser extent a more casual fare in the pub. Over the last 30 years lifestyles and dining preferences have changed and there is a much greater demand for a casual atmosphere. The club saw the shift two years ago and began plans to renovate the Dataw Island Club dining choices to reflect the change in the dining trends. Since the renovation, the pub size has been doubled and the dining room, which was more formal, has been upgraded and made more intimate. The new design is more open and allows for more flexibility for all events. As part of the renovation of the club, designers also

included outside upgrades by adding a charming exterior dining area complete with a fireplace. The architectural concept work was headed up by Dataw Island resident Bill Fox. J Banks Design of Hilton Head did the interior design, and construction work was managed by Steve Walker of Island Residential Construction of Dataw Island. The combination of golf and clubhouse projects shows the substantial commitment Dataw members have made to the future. Dataw Island Club president Dave Muehl summed it up by saying, “the combination of our renovated golf courses and clubhouse positions us perfectly to compete in the future.” The changes have been met with

overwhelmingly positive response from the Dataw Island Club members. “I can’t believe the transformation, “said Pat Judd an island resident. “It is such a great change, and I know we will be dining out at the club much more because of the improvements.” The Dataw Island Club is much more than just dining, however. The Arthur Hills Morgan River course reopened for play last month to rave reviews after a complete renovation. The Tom Faziodesigned Cotton Dike course opened last year with equally high accolades. “Our pair of championship courses are now on par with any of the courses in the Lowcountry,” said golf member Dave Yoder. The club also boasts a tennis center,

ted e! a v o urs n e R s Co y l w Hill e N ur Ath

indoor and outdoor pools, complete workout facilities with personal trainers, croquet and a deep-water marina. The main clubhouse where the new dining facilities are located is the center of the community. It is a place where people gather at the club for meals, meetings, activities or just to enjoy each other and the beauty of Jenkins Creek. “This club has some of the finest amenities anywhere, but the true asset of Dataw Island is the people,” said club member Bob North. “Many of our best friends in the world are people we have met since we moved to Dataw.” For more information on Dataw membership or real estate opportunities, call David Warren at 843-838-3374.

community verdier house dinner & a lecture: the curious mister catesby Just a year after Beaufort was founded in 1711, an Englishman named Mark Catesby arrived in America obsessed with the discovery and description of the littleunknown flora and fauna of the Colonies. “The Curious Mister Catesby,” the story of his explorations in the New World, is the topic of Dinner & A Lecture at the Verdier House, 801 Bay Street, October 22, at 5:30 p.m. On his second trip in 1722, he set sail on a four-year excursion to the Lowcountry to record its native habitat. He traveled under the auspices of London’s Royal Society. He explored the Southeast colonies and the Bahamas, and spent the subsequent 20 years writing and illustrating his exhaustive two-volume “Natural History of Carolina, Florida and The Bahama Islands,” the first illustrated work detailing the plants, insects and birds he found here. “The Curious Mister Catesby” was produced and directed by Cynthia Neal, a leading filmmaker of the natural world in the U.S. “Dinner and a Lecture” is open to Historic Beaufort Foundation members and non-members; the lecture series features a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception, 5:30 to 6 p.m. The program is 6 to 7 p.m., followed by audience questions. Admission is $15/$25 per member/ member couple respectively, and $20/$30 per non-member/non-member couple respectively. Seating is limited; call 3793331 to make reservations. A three-course dinner at Saltus River Grill is offered at $19 per person for attendees at the lecture. Call Saltus at 379-3474 directly to make dining reservations.

United Way of Lowcountry hits first million of campaign United Way of the Lowcountry’s 2012 campaign cleared its first million this week as residents and businesses respond to local needs. The campaign is at 36 percent of its $2.8 million goal, CEO Clarece Walker said Thursday. Contributions to United Way of the Lowcountry help save lives — including dozens of young men who found themselves on the wrong side of the law for nonviolent offenses. An option to prison time is AMIkids Beaufort, a residential facility in Dale. “United Way of the Lowcountry supports AMIkids Beaufort and the wonderful work they do, and we support 43 other agencies and partnerships,” said Mike Petrelli, campaign chairman for Hilton Head Island. “We hope people will dig deep this year to help us reach our 2012 goal of $2.8 million needed to help people in Beaufort and Jasper counties.” Every $100 contribution to United Way of the Lowcountry provides a young man between the ages of 14 and 17 who has been referred by the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice to AMIkids Beaufort with 34 hours of instruction to support academic achievement. “At AMIkids we have two primary goals, education and behavior modification. The

lifestyle at AMIkids Beaufort is healthy and rigorous, with time in the classroom offset by significant time outdoors,” said James Rivers, executive director at AMIkids Beaufort. “The students are assigned responsibilities for maintaining our buildings and outdoor facilities, and have the opportunity to earn recognition points every day in leadership, timeliness, attitude, respect, appearance, supervision, safety and participation,” Rivers said. “We have a success rate of 72 percent, meaning that 72 percent of the young men who come through our doors don’t have any more trouble with the law for the next year. That compares to the state prison system’s 28 percent success rate,” he said. This year, AMIkids Beaufort added a welding program in partnership with TCL, through funding provided by the Stranahan Foundation. Now, students can work toward their GED and earn welding certificates to help them gain employment. Help United Way of the Lowcountry meet the needs of the community, and meet the $2.8 million goal.

lunch bunch A plentiful variety of Thai and sushi items makes dining a pleasure at

By Pamela Brownstein

The quest to sample the best of Beaufort’s Asian cuisine continues as the Lunch Bunch tasted just some of the many Thai and sushi dishes offered at Papaya. We all started with steamed shrimp dumpling appetizers, which I adore, served with sweet teriyaki sauce. Elizabeth, Nikki and David tried different rolls from the sushi menu. Elizabeth had the Spicy Tuna roll and the Fried Oyster roll, made with tempura fresh oysters and avocados, both excellent. Nikki went with the Snapper roll, stuffed with fried snapper and avocado, and the Crispy Shrimp roll — tempura shrimp and asparagus topped with shrimp sauce and sesame seed — that was crunchy and yummy. We all agreed that David’s Millipede Roll with tempura shrimp and asparagus topped with tuna and avocado was also awesome, most likely a must-have. Buck was thrilled with his yellow Thai curry with chicken — the colorful dish tasted as good as it looked, and he ate it all. The classic Pad Thai made with flat rice noodles, shrimp, chicken, egg,

scallions and crispy bean sprouts was calling Kim, and she really liked it. I was running late, so I told Elizabeth to go ahead and order for me. Since I eat sushi and Thai food all the time, I figured I have tried everything. But, I was unfamiliar with the dish she chose for me, even though it is a common item. The Pho is Asian noodle soup that comes with a choice of meat (mine had shrimp) and served in a humongous

bowl. It was really good, and I was excited to try something new. Nikki had to have her favorite watermelon martini, and since I didn’t want her to drink by herself, I felt obligated to order the Peach Cobbler martini special. With a sprinkling of cinnamon on top, it was not too sweet, and quite delicious. The bar area is chic and modern that manages to be upscale without being pretentious, making it a

great place to meet for drinks and dinner or for happy hour after work. The restaurant also features an early bird dining menu from 4:45 to 6 p.m., in addition to dinner and daily specials. Papaya is located at 1001 Boundary Street, Suite D, Beaufort, and is open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., 4:30 - 9 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., 4:30 - 10 p.m.; Saturday, noon - 3 p.m., 4:30 to 10 p.m.; Sunday, noon - 3 p.m., 4:30 - 9 p.m.


Pick your Poison By Celia Strong

Yikes! Does that get your attention or what? But, hang on, it will make sense as soon as we get to this week’s wine. For that we’re off to California’s Sonoma County, in particular, the Dry Creek Valley AVA. This AVA is located in Sonoma County just northwest of the city of Healdsburg. It is a valley within a larger valley, the Dry Creek Valley being formed by Dry Creek. Silly, but I for one never stretched my thinking to realize there was an actual dry creek out there. It is actually a tributary of the Russian River. Dry Creek Valley is about sixteen miles long and two miles wide and close enough to the Lake Sonoma reservoir to use it for irrigation. And, as small as the valley is, all of it is not suitable for vineyards. Despite its small size, though, this AVA has a long history of grape growing and wine making. Even as early as 1879, it was recognized as an area “especially adapted to grape culture.” The 32 square miles that make up the AVA are very diverse in their soils, climates and elevations. The valley’s soils are called “patchwork” because pieces of different ones line up next to each other. Each soil, some with names like Yolo, Manzanita and Cortina, each give their own characteristics to the grapes that grow on them. The overall climate in Dry Creek is warm days and cool nights. During the day, though, different parts of the valley warm up at different times to different temperatures for different lengths of time. Every little variation can make grapes just different enough to change how they show in a wine. The elevations up and down the valley control drainage but also how much and how long the fogs from the San Francisco Bay, 70 miles away, cool and dampen the vineyards. The northern part of Dry Creek Valley is actually warmer than the southern part. That means different grapes do better in different

areas. Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc all thrive here. And each of these varieties, depending on exactly where it grows in the tiny 32 square miles, can make big, bold wines or delicate, understated wines. Zinfandel typically makes a robust red wine with higher than normal alcohol levels. The flavors of its wines depends on the ripeness of the grapes. Cooler climate grapes make wines with red berry fruit flavors, particularly raspberry. Warmer growing conditions make wines with blackberry, anise and black pepper flavors. At the turn of the 20th century, Dry Creek Valley was one of the most prominent areas in California for Zinfandel. I know we’ve talked before about the decline of most of California’s vineyards during Prohibition, but, since the resurgence of Zinfandel in the 1970’s, the Dry Creek AVA has become the state’s top producer of this red variety. Zinfandel is genetically equivalent to the Croatian variety known as Crljenak and the Italian Primitivo. Going back about five thousand years, Croatian vineyards had several indigenous varieties that were relatives of today’s Zinfandel. These grapes were the basis of Croatia’s wine business until phylloxera killed them all in the nineteenth century. In 2001, nine vines that had survived were found on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. (Nine vines means about four bottles a year.) The first documented use of the name Primitivo appeared in an Italian

government publication in the 1870’s. Zinfandel came to the United States in the mid-19th century, possibly from the Imperial Nursery in Vienna, Austria. A horticulturist on Long Island received shipments of grapes between 1820 and 1829. It’s possible one of these vines was some “Black Zinfandel from Hungary.” Not really verified, but the name Zinfandel could be from the Hungarian version of the German “zierfandler,” a white grape. Zinfandel vines were grown with some success and promoted from Long Island up into New England for several years. Then, some of these growers brought the grape to California in the 1850’s. And, that is our history lesson for today. Our winery this week is Armida. Here, brothers Steve and Bruce Cousins have a small operation where they specialize in artisan wines. Since 1994, they have worked to make their wines from Dry Creek and Russian River locations, about

ten in all. They make Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, as so much of the Russian River is known for, and Zinfandels from Dry Creek. Their winemaker is Brandon Lapides. He studied at the University of California at Davis, then traveled to New Zealand for several months to work at Brancott Winery in Marlborough where he learned how to make good Sauvignon Blancs. Back in the United States, he was hired as assistant winemaker at Peachy Canyon in Paso Robles where he worked with Zinfandel. Great wines and many awards there brought him to the attention of Dan Goldfield at Dutton Goldfield in the Russian River. Four years with these great Chards and Pinot Noirs honed his skills and his palate. Now, at Armida, his work continues with more wonderful wines. But, it’s not just about the wine at Armida. Fun is also essential! So, they have parties, and tastings, and a pond and a bocci ball court. And fun with their wines, including some of the names. The name of our wine this week is the most fun. Poizin. This wine is a Zinfandel, but blended with a bit of Petite Sirah. Officially, that makes is a field blend (a mix of whatever is in the vineyard). This is a serious wine, just in a fun package with a fun name. The nose is fruit driven with fresh plums, bing cherries, spicy peppercorns and zinberry. The texture in your mouth is smooth with milk chocolate and sweet oak flavors on top of the fruits and spices and a long finish. This is a dark wine with a firm structure thanks to good tannins. As they say at Armida - “A wine to die for! It will probably be the only Poizin you ever ask for and like to drink. At $12.99, you can Poizin yourself and friends all day long. Enjoy!

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol

Clears a room in no time


t’s a quiet evening. You and your buddy Cammo are curled up with a good book when the silence is broken by a gurgling, rumbling sound coming from the middle of your dog. The technical term for that ominous sound is borborygmous (or –mi, if your have two rumbling dogs). It’s one of my favorite words, fun to say, more fun to lob into casual conversation and a good word to know if you are a devotee of the New York Times crossword puzzle. In reference to Cammo, it is the sound that precedes flatulence. I have been a very lucky dog owner in that all of my pals have had cast iron stomachs. However, my lab Tucker, being true to his breed, would test his digestion’s stamina by consuming anything anytime and in vast quantities. While he could comfortably snack his way through used tissues in the bathroom wastebasket, two pounds of foil-wrapped cheap chocolate, bacon-grease soaked paper towels, an entire Costco-size carton of ricotta, the bottom two-thirds of a found muskrat, he could be done in by a simple cheese and bean burrito. We all paid the price. While his Clostridia and other intestinal flora were working overtime to metabolize the burrito, he would still clear

a room in no time. Why? Because dogs do not digest carbohydrates very well. The burrito was chock full of indigestible fiber, oligosaccharides and corn meal. So rather than being digested, it was fermenting in his gut producing hydrogen, methane, carbon dioxide, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and other gasses that have to go somewhere. It’s normal for dogs to have an occasional bout of gas. But it’s not normal for it to occur all the time. From a holistic perspective, symptoms such as chronic flatulence may be a symptom of a more serious ailment, like pancreatic disease, irritable bowel syndrome or even parasites. Holistically, too, symptoms indicate where to look for a curative solution. Suppressing the symptom (with simethicone-GasXfor instance) simply postpones or obviates

a real diagnosis. If you have, as my father would say, a fahr-tuh in the house, the first thing to do would be to examine what goes in. Most commercial dog foods are loaded with fillers of low-grade grains and grain by-products. These contribute more to canine indigestion than most anything else. Again, here’s my mantra — read the label — if corn, soy, grain hulls, multiple grain meals or sugar are listed in the first few ingredients you will have found the reason for your dog’s fahr-tuh-tude. Poor quality meats or meat by-products, those not listed as being sourced from a specific species (i.e. chicken meal, beef meal), could also be the culprits. Switch to a better quality food. Also, feeding your dog on a schedule may also eliminate the problem. We all

need a few hours in-between meals to completely digest what goes in. Common sense indicates that if you are free-feeding your dog, he’s snacking and tooting all day long. If your dog is a Speed-Eater, one of those dogs that inhale his food, he’s taking in a good amount of air with each gulp and is assaulting his gut with a huge bolus of food in a short period of time. In kennel, I would feed the competitive eaters on sheet pans. It forced them to slow down, use their lips and take their time. There are several herbs useful for relieving flatulence and indigestion. You may already have them in your spice rack. One of the best carminative herbs is fennel seed. Fennel has a faint licorice flavor and has been used for centuries as a reliable anti-gas, anti-colic remedy for humans and animals. You’ll often find them in Indian restaurants at the checkout counter in lieu of a bowl of puffy pastel mints. Fennel seed is safe enough to give dogs of any size. Grind them, crush them or soak a tablespoonful in a cup of boiling water till cooled for a tea. A teaspoon of the infusion may be all that’s needed. Other spice cabinet options are dill seed, anise seed, caraway seed, chamomile, catnip or, yes, even a few puffy pastel peppermints.
