School bus cameras get green light

october 18-24, 2012




The Beaufort County Board of Education unanimously approved a plan on Tuesday, Oct. 17, to install video and audio recording systems on all of the district’s 166 school buses. The district’s $257,000 contract with the winning bidder, Charlottebased Fortress Systems, calls for three digital units on each bus: one in the front of the vehicle, one in the middle and one in the rear. The cameras should be installed by December 31, district officials said. There is little hard research data around the nation to show that the presence of cameras on buses acts as a deterrent against bad behavior, said Student Services Officer Gregory McCord. But he said that there is anecdotal support among educators for cameras’ deterrent effect, and he added that video and audio recordings would prove valuable in providing objective evidence during student disciplinary proceedings. “We think this is a very positive move,” McCord said. “It will help the district remain proactive in ensuring student safety, which is always our top priority.”

Protecting land in Beaufort County Since 1999, the Beaufort County Rural and Critical Land Preservation Program has saved thousands of acres in Beaufort County from Development. The program was able to do this after Beaufort County residents voted yes in 2000 and again in 2006 to a bond referendum putting money aside for the purpose of protecting land. This year, on Election Day, November 6, Beaufort County voters will be asked again to continue what was started in 2000. To learn more about what the Rural and Critical

Land Preservation has accomplished over the last 12 years, go to http:// and view the new website. “The program is protecting the culture, environment and economy of Beaufort County. If the program’s past accomplishment is any indication of its future success, then Beaufort residents should be both proud of what’s been done to date and excited by future preservation possibilities,” said Garrett James Budds with Beaufort County Open Land Trust.

National Cemetery beautification The Beaufort Garden Club was among several selected to enhance the landscaping at the National Cemetery in Beaufort. The club submitted its design for a new entrance for approval by the National Cemetery Administration in Washington, D.C., and with funds from the cemetery and the club, new shrubs were purchased for the curved garden. The grounds crew at the National Cemetery and members of the Garden Club completed the planting on October 11. This project continues the 77 year long tradition of Civic Beautification by The Beaufort Garden Club. It was one of the garden clubs that replaced dozens of trees destroyed by Hurricane Gracie in 1959 and is the sponsor of the annual Garden-a-Day tours each June.

Tax-smart retirement moves Smart investing involves choosing the right assets to meet your specific needs. It also involves holding those investments in the right types of accounts — particularly when it comes to retirement savings. When managing your retirement savings, aim for tax efficiency, recommends Bev Doolin, IRA Product Manager at Wells Fargo Advisors. “And make sure you involve your tax professional as well as your Financial Advisor in assessing the tax implications of any investing strategy you’re considering.” Here are a few considerations to help you make the most of the accounts available to you: Tax deductions. Some investors delay making a traditional IRA contribution until they know whether it will qualify for a tax deduction. If there’s any doubt, Doolin suggests contributing to a Roth IRA. “It’s a no-brainer,” she says. You can contribute directly to a Roth IRA if you earn less than $125,000 (single) or $183,000 (married filing taxes jointly) in 2012. Otherwise you can contribute to a traditional IRA and then convert it to a Roth. One benefit of Roth IRAs: They don’t require minimum distributions after you reach age 70½. Growth versus income. As a general rule, it’s wise to keep investments with strong growth potential in Roth accounts, which shield you from tax on any appreciation. Taxable accounts can also be a good option for growth stocks, as

long as you hold the stocks for the long haul. The reason: The capital gains tax you’ll pay when you sell the shares is likely to be lower than the income tax you’d pay Wendy if you held them in a Zara traditional IRA, sold them and then distributed the cash — but be sure to review such a strategy with your own accountant and Financial Advisor to make sure that would be the case for you. Estate planning. A Roth IRA is the undisputed champion of accounts when it comes to passing down assets. You won’t have to take withdrawals during your lifetime, and while your heirs will have to distribute a required minimum amount each year, they generally won’t pay any tax on it. Securities in taxable accounts come in second, at least in terms of tax efficiency: The inheritors won’t have to take required minimum distributions, and they’ll pay capital gains tax only on appreciation that occurs after your death. On the other hand, if you pass a traditional IRA or 401(k) to your heirs, they will be required to take minimum annual withdrawals and pay taxes on those distributions. Distribution strategy. The rule of thumb for retirement distributions is to start tapping your taxable accounts first, your traditional IRAs second and your

Roth IRAs last. But that’s not always the most effective order, Doolin says: “Liquidating an asset in your taxable account might push you into a higher tax bracket, which could affect everything from the taxes you owe to the cost of your Medicare Part B premium.” Her suggestion: Lay out a general distribution strategy that reflects your anticipated income needs, then adjust your withdrawals depending on your situation in any given year. Again, consult with your Financial Advisor and your tax

professional to make sure the strategy you develop takes into account all relevant changes in tax regulations as well as your own needs. Wells Fargo Advisors is not a legal or tax advisor.

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.

Don’t let decorative contact lenses ruin Halloween By Mark Siegel, MD, FAAO

Websites often advertise decorative contacts as if they were cosmetics, fashion accessories or toys. With whimsical packaging and names, their targets are often teens and young adults. The truth: claims such as “one size fits all” and “no need to see an eye specialist” are false advertising. Many sales of contact lenses are illegal. Here’s what you need to know: • It’s illegal to sell decorative lenses without a prescription in the United States Since 2005, the law has classified all contact lenses as medical devices and restricted their distribution to licensed eye care professionals. Laws on decorative lenses vary in other countries. • See an eye care professional before using any decorative lenses: an ophthalmologist or optometrist must measure each eye in order to properly fit the contact lenses to the individual patient. • Lenses that are not properly fitted may scratch the eye or cause blood vessels to grow into the cornea (the clear covering of the front of the eye that is essential to seeing clearly).

Mark Siegel, MD, FAAO Medical Director of Sea Island Ophthalmology, www. seaislandophthalmology. com. • Using any contact lenses obtained without an eye exam and prescription can lead to serious eye disorders and eye infections, which can ultimately cause permanent vision loss. • Contacts that are not cleaned and disinfected properly can cause painful and potentially serious infections. If you want your Halloween look to include cat, zombie or glow-in-thedark eyes, or if you’d like to use lenses to change your eye color or appearance, get your decorative contact lenses and circle lenses prescribed by an eye care professional. It’s crucial that your lenses fit properly, and your individual prescription can only be determined by an eye exam. Skipping this step and buying lenses online or over the counter can set you up for serious eye problems, infections or even permanent vision loss.

Choose your Medicare plan carefully Annual open enrollment period runs through December 7 It’s that time of year when eligible individual have the chance to sign up for a Medicare Advantage Plan — or change from one plan to another or switch back to traditional Medicare. Open enrollment for Medicare Advantage Plans runs October 15 through December 7 this year. But before you sign on the dotted line, be sure the plan you’ve chosen has you covered. If your doctors and hospital are not in the plan’s network of providers, you could end up paying more for medical services. There are several options in our market area, if you decide an Advantage plan is right for you. But don’t assume because it’s an AARP-endorsed company that it’s looking out for your best interests or that it’s the best possible choice for you. “Most people have no idea they have to ask to find out if their health care providers are in the insurance company’s network,” said Jeff White, Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s senior vice president and chief financial officer. “If they’re not part of the plan, you’ll have to pay more out-of-pocket costs—and they can be substantial.” Sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,” a Medicare Advantage Plan is another health plan choice you may have as part of Medicare. They are offered by private insurance companies and provide all of your Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance) coverage. Medicare Advantage Plans pay for all of the services that Medicare covers, including emergency and urgent care. These plans are NOT supplemental coverage, but they may offer extra benefits, such as vision, hearing, dental and/or health and wellness programs. Most include Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D). Although participating insurance

a message from cfo jeffrey white

companies must follow rules set by Medicare, each Medicare Advantage Plan can charge different out-of-pocket costs and have different rules for how you get services. For instance, you may need a referral to see a specialist or you may be required to go only to doctors or facilities that belong to the plan for non-emergency or non-urgent care. If you are treated by a doctor or hospital that doesn’t belong to the plan, your services may not be covered or your costs could be higher. Check with the insurance company to find out if they will cover a particular service and what your costs may be before obtaining the service, if possible. You may be required to obtain prior approval for certain procedures to avoid higher costs. Since not all Medicare Advantage Plans work the same way, it’s important to find out the rules and costs of a plan—and if your doctors and hospital are in the plan’s network of providers—before you sign up. In most cases, you’re enrolled in a plan for

a year and cannot change plans until the next open enrollment, which could be up to one year later. “We’ve had patients ask us to write off the extra expenses they’ve been charged by their plan because we’re not in their plan’s network,” White said. “We don’t belong to some plans because the companies pay significantly less than our hospital-specific cost-based Medicare reimbursement.” If you are already in a plan and do not select a different insurance company, you will be automatically re-enrolled in your current plan. Be aware, the plan’s rules and participants can change each year, so you’ll need to confirm your health care providers are still part of the insurance company’s network. “Some insurance companies don’t advertise who is in their network and don’t tell you that you will pay more if you go to an out-of-network provider,” White said. “If you don’t ask, you may not find out until it’s too late and you have been charged extra for medical services because

Medicare/Medicare Advantage plans are open to change enrollment starting October 15 and ending December 7. As a result, you are seeing advertisements for many Medicare Advantage plans . Medicare Advantage plans are not supplemental plans, they actually replace traditional Medicare. There is a lot of confusing information out there. What you must know is which providers belong to the plan’s network. A doctor or hospital “in network” is one that negotiates a formal contract and provisions for reimbursement. This is important because, if you receive services from a doctor or hospital out-of-YOUR-network, you may find yourself with less coverage and paying much more out-of-pocket than you bargained for! Insurance companies offering Medicare products may say you are free to choose any doctor or hospital, but some fail to let you know that you may pay more for medical care by providers (doctors and hospitals) not in their network. Beaufort Memorial participates in six plans, posted on our website If you have any questions about Beaufort Memorial, contact Robin Poehnert at 522-5794. You have until December 7 to choose a different Medicare Advantage plan, or you may choose to switch back to traditional Medicare. To find out more about plans available in your area, go to and enter your zip code. Whichever you choose, make sure you know what you are getting before you sign up and that you understand the implications and requirements of joining a particular Medicare Advantage plan. Jeffrey L. White, SVP and Chief Financial Officer, Beaufort Memorial Hospital

Seasons of change By Martha O’Regan

It’s that time for sore throats, sinus or chest congestion, sneezing, and coughing, usually without fever and not really bad enough to stay home, but enough to bring discomfort and a wonder about what we are “coming down with.” We call it a cold but more often than not, it is merely a “seasonal cleanse,” a natural cleansing process in response to change of seasons — moving from the expansive season of summer to a contractive season of fall. Understanding that everything in creation follows predictable seasonal cycles allows us to support certain changes in our body rather than immediately suppressing them. These expected rhythms come naturally through the foods we eat, the thoughts we think and the activities we enjoy. As summer turns to fall, we begin adding layers of clothing and enjoying foods that warm us up; leaves shrivel up and drop, and animals, following their innate

wisdom, finish their preparations for winter. We experience the variation of temperatures in our environments as we move from warm homes or offices to cold cars or spend hours at a football game without enough layers. This ultimately forces the trillion cells in our body to go through a contractive or squeezing process, resulting in a detoxifying or cleansing process, which we often feel through our mucous membranes as a runny nose, sore throat and watery eyes. Our individual lifestyles and the amount

of toxins our body is attempting to rid itself may make some of us feel worse than others as our body cleanses. As soon as you begin to notice your body going through a seasonal cleanse, recognize that the symptoms you are feeling are actually good (not always pleasant) and a natural occurrence based on basic laws of nature. Be grateful that your body is getting rid of the “gunk” and support the process by drinking plenty of water and herbal teas, allowing yourself to get adequate rest, utilizing essential oils, and flushing your sinuses with a neti pot or a simple saline spray. It is important to prevent the gunk from getting stuck, and becoming an “itis,” which merely stands for inflammation. When the gunk gets “stuck” in the sinuses, and causes the tissues to get inflamed, it becomes sinusitis, and getting stuck in the bronchioles in the lungs becomes bronchitis. Support by using contrast therapy (hot/cold) on your sinuses or your chest using ice packs and hot baths or showers.

One good trick for sinuses is to stand at the kitchen sink with two bowls — one with ice cubes and one with a warm compress, preferably with a few drops of eucalyptus, thyme or lavender essential oils. Alternate holding the warm compress on your face over your sinus areas (above and below the eyebrow just at the bridge of the nose and along the bottom of the cheek bone), breathing deeply (until compress cools) then rubbing the same areas with the ice cubes. Keep the cubes moving, staying in each of the six locations for several seconds. Repeating at least three times finishing up with the ice will bring relief as you keep the gunk moving — let it flow, let it flow, let it flow! Remember that your body is always communicating with you so as you enjoy the change of seasons, become aware of how your body responds to it. When you take the time to listen and support its natural processes, you can learn to live in your body with much more ease and vitality. Live Well ... Have Fun!

Some tips on purchasing a new computer When it comes to buying a new computer, it is all about knowing what you are wanting to use the computer for. Some computers are great for the basic user: Internet browsing, solitare, word processing and other basic programs is about all it will be used for. Then you have the more, what I call, Power User. They use the computer for all sorts of things like making movies, making music, playing games and other taxing applications. Here are some computer buying terms you will need to know. Processor: This is the brain of your computer. This will basically sets the bar for how fast your computer is going to be able to run. For the basic user, a dual core processor is more than enough power for what you are going to be doing on a daily basis. Think about processor speeds this way: If you have a dual core running at 2GHz and a single core running at 3GHz, the dual core is technically faster because it can do twice as much work in each cycle. It’s like having a two-lane highway compared to a one lane; more traffic can flow through in less time. You can find relatively low priced computers with dual cores now so why not give yourself a bit more power to work with. RAM: The amount of RAM in computers today is astounding. In

basic terms, the more RAM you have, the more you can do at one time. Most average priced computers come with 4 GB (Gigabytes) of RAM. That is enough to work with basically anything that you want to. Most commonly, RAM is found as DDR2. There is a more efficient type of RAM out today called DDR3. Overall, If you can find a computer with 4 GB’s of RAM for a good price, you are on the right track. Hard Drive: Your hard drive holds everything on your computer, Plain and simple. The higher the storage capacity, the more pictures, music, games, documents and programs you can hold. A good hard drive size for the average user is anywhere between 250 GB and 500GB. (I am using 500 GB). Of course you can scale up if you think you need to. If you download games and movies, you might want to go higher.

Form Factor: When shopping, ask yourself, “How mobile do I need to be?” This is the difference between purchasing a desktop or laptop. If you want to keep it in one place and have more power at a lower price, then a desktop is for you. If you want to take your computer with you and have a bit more freedom, laptop all the way. This is completely your preference. Brand: Everyone has their own opinions on which brands are best. HP, Gateway, ASUS, Lenovo, IBM, Dell — there are just too many to choose from. My best advice on this subject is this:

“Do your research” I can’t tell you which brand is best for you. Only you can make that choice. I use ASUS because I believe they make fantastic computers and I have used HP in the past. Once again, it is completely up to you. There are other things to look at as well when making a choice on a new PC. These include: graphics card, webcam, sound card, battery, touch capability ... the list goes on. You have to make the decision on what is important to you. If you take time and research a bit, I am sure that you will find your perfect PC!

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

low country school of performing arts has

all the right moves By Lanier Laney


t’s kind of a miracle, really, when you think about it, that a town as small a Beaufort, located far off the beaten path here in “the back of beyond” as I like to say, has a world class training school for young dancers. The young, energetic teacher, Deanna Kraszewski, is directly from Broadway where she was assistant to Rebecca Darling of the acclaimed Pilobus dance company and where she also was assistant to renowned Broadway director and Producer Donald Birely. Deanna founded the Low Country School of Performing Arts just three years ago and has already had graduates go on to dance with the Atlanta Ballet, USC Conservatory, Governors School and Joffrey Ballet, to name just a few. The technical school offers classical training in ballet, pointe, contemporary, jazz, tap, hip hop, creative movement, barre and pilates, with classes for ages 2 1/2 to adult, beginner through professional level training. Says Laura Eggers, “Not only do Deanna and her staff produce top notch productions, they produce top notch dancers too. She’s created an atmosphere that inspires and challenges and is a place that dancers love to go.” Ty and Marc Reichel agree, saying, “For our daughter, Keating, Low Country School of Performing Arts has opened up her world. Under Deanna’s wing, she has grown from being a good dancer to a gifted dancer, from possessing a love for dance to a passion for it, and the studio has transformed

from being an after-school activity to a second home. For our younger girl, Ambrose, I watch the poise and care that she already puts into her every move at only 6 years of age. She knows the lingo and moves with grace. She, too, is developing into quite the young dancer as well. It is with absolute pride and much enjoyment that we take our girls daily to the school and watch any and every opportunity we can — Deanna has given our girls an incredible gift, and we thank her implicitly.” In August of last year, the school moved to a new larger facility at 206 Carteret Street, next to Wren. The spacious 2,500-sq-foot space has two studios with sprung Marley dance floors, 10 foot tall mirrors, a state-of-the-art sound system, and enough barres to accommodate

large classes and workshops. This year, the dance school will be participating in the Youth American Grande Prix — an elite worldwide ballet competition in Atlanta in March. These dancers will be seen by professional companies and schools from around the world and will be given the opportunity to

compete for scholarships to such prestigious schools such as the School of American Ballet and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School. The school has a wonderful fundraising event on Friday, Oct. 26 from 7-10 p.m. at the studio called “A Night of Decadence & Dancing.” All proceeds from will go to scholarship programs and educational workshops and classes in an effort to provide better opportunities for young students looking to pursue a career in dance as well as an appreciation of the art form. Says Deanna,“Whether a student’s needs are class basics such as ballet slippers or financial support in order to attend Low Country School of Performing Arts, we hope to be able to provide a variety of scholarships to those who would otherwise not be able to attend and participate in our program. Everyone deserves a chance and with your help and the success of our upcoming event, we will hopefully be able to fulfill the dreams of many talented aspiring young dancers we have here in Beaufort.” Tickets are $50 per person/$90 per couple. Call 843-433-3698. Says Katie Huebel, of WED, who has donated her design services for the fundraising event, “My daughter found her ‘love of dance’ at Low Country School of Performing Arts. Deanna brings an immense knowledge base to her craft as well as a unique style to her choreography. She inspires her students around her to become better dancers and to push themselves to new heights.”

Boots and Bling did its thing! Boots and Bling did its thing — that is, raising more than $20,000 for improvements at the Wardle Family YMCA in Port Royal. In its third year as a major fundraiser for the Y, last Saturday’s event broke attendance records with more than 200 cowboys and cowgirls dressed up and having a good time with food, drinks, music and a silent auction. Kudos to committee members Amy Roberts, Liz Murdaugh, Julie Musselman, Mary Winburn, Denice Davis, Fred Kuhn, Mike Bostick, Joanna Bostick, Marta Fostenberry, Kelly Collins, Lori Elliott, Roger Elliott, Erin Demers, Deloris Fuller and Jennifer Youmans for putting on a great event. Special thanks to Chris and Maureen Butler for the generous use of the event site at Butler Marine. Actor Tom Berringer, the event’s spokesperson, talked about how the Y got started in Beaufort County. Tom had a very important role founding the Y with his philanthropic gifts and ongoing support over the years and he deserves a big thank you from the hundreds of people and families who have benefitted from the facilities and programs provided by the YMCA. A big special thank you also goes to the committee, sponsors and all of the people who worked so hard to make this event come together as well as the people who attended and bid on the many great silent auction items.

The film “Celeste and Jesse Forever” was previewed last week and will be shown Monday, October 22 at 6:30 at USCB CFA. Please refer to last week’s feature to learn about this good film. For today’s column I will discuss the Indie film movement and USCB’s participation in it. One can define Indie films as those films that are produced, shot, released and then distributed outside of the major film studio network and distribution system. Originally, indie films were all produced with no association with major studios, major actors, and established large theaters. This is still true today for the majority of these films. However, in the last few years, major studios have formed Indie divisions and highly acclaimed actors have taken an interest in acting in these low budget films. For example,“Midnight in Paris” was an Indie film, under a division of Sony Pictures, with well known actors, but had limited distribution, until it became so popular that it also got a round of limited major distribution later in its release cycle. By and large, Indie films are higher risk films due to their topic or story line that majors refuse to risk their time, money, and bottom line. This drives Indies to be low budget films new actor ventures. After an Indie is in the “can”, getting distribution is the next major challenge. Being accepted to a major film festival helps some, winning a prize helps more. Still the vast majority of Indie films never sees the inside of a theater, but is relegated to only being seen via DVD to friends and family. Two years ago, USCB’s Center for the Arts entered into an agreement with Emerging Pictures in New York City to be a part of their distribution network, which is the largest network of theaters showing Indie films in the United States. The Center selects the films and then schedules them to be shown at the Center on afternoons and evenings as other events and performances allow. Emerging Pictures carefully selects the films to add to its catalogue for its member venues by utilizing reviews, film festival success records, and private screenings. Once added to the catalog any venue in the EP network can schedule the film for a particular date. Once the date is approved by EP, it is transmitted via a leased high speed data pipeline directly to the dedicated server at USCB CFA which resides in the university’s projection room. The films are downloaded to the server several days before the scheduled showing to avoid any hiccups that can occur with direct streaming. On projection night, a USCB technician merely accesses the server and starts the “film” utilizing the HD projection system that USCB purchased for the MET Opera series ... and we are off to the movies!

Case Study: Laura Achurch, competitive tennis player “I’ve been training at Omni Health & Fitness for two years. Being a competitive tennis player, I wanted to gain strength, flexibility and endurance on the tennis court, things I thought I might be losing as I got a little older. Through weightlifting, cardio bursts, and working out with a trainer, I feel stronger and faster than I used to be. “Now, I can run down balls that I never was able to before and am not even tired! My tennis game has really improved. The cross training helps not only with tennis but also with everyday life. I feel better and sleep better.

What is a classical Christian education? Headmaster Chad Lawrence discusses the philosophy behind Holy Trinity Classical Christian School By Pamela Brownstein

On August 1, 2012, Headmaster Chad Lawrence got the good news that his new Holy Trinity Classical Christian School was approved to move into its home on 302 Burroughs Avenue. That gave him and his staff only 21 days to ready the empty building for the first day of school on August 22. Although it was a hectic and busy time, Lawrence said, “It was very exciting for us.” Now that everyone has settled in, the efforts of their hard work can be seen in the colorful, creative classrooms that foster an inviting environment and in the hallways where students wear uniforms and big smiles on their faces. On a tour of the school, Lawrence describes its mission: “We have a desire to provide children with a strong academic education with a Christian foundation.” The school teaches preschool, with classes for 2 and 3-year-olds, through fifth grade. Each week, the classes learn art, music, poetry and a memory verse. The art classes are based on pieces of classical art from artists such as Van Gogh and da Vinci. In second grade, the students start learning Latin, a key part of the school’s curriculum. They memorize basic

vocabulary words and phrases, and the language gets more challenging for the older grades. But Miss. Bywater, the fourth and fifth grade teacher, said Latin is her students’ favorite subject. “They like it because it’s something not everybody knows,” she admitted. The idea for the new school began in earnest more than a year ago, and after accepting the position of headmaster, Lawrence admits he’d never heard of classical education before. “But the more I learned about it, the more I realized

how right on it is,” he said as far as its emphasis on a traditional approach to learning with structure and focusing on classical studies such as Latin and Greek mythology. The teachers and staff work in collaboration with Highlands Latin School in Louisville, Ky., which serves as a model for Holy Trinity. “We believe in learning from a knowledgeable, educated teacher, who leads from the front of the classroom,” said Lawrence.

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

Headmaster Lawrence was once a teacher himself before joining the seminary and becoming a part of the clergy the Parish Church of St. Helena in downtown Beaufort, and he values the importance of educating the whole person. Holy Trinity has its own athletics program and the school has improved the playground with new equipment. “I think playing outside is a big part of childhood,” he said. The science curriculum goes in-depth, and students spend a whole year learning about one subject. They teach cursive and adhere to a code of conduct. They also read classic literature. “We want to read great books,” Lawrence said. Right now the school has about 100 students, with small class sizes at only 14 or 15 students per class. They hope to add sixth grade next year, and Lawrence said the eventual goal is to be a Pre-K through 12th school. Lawrence wants to dispel misconceptions about a classical education that some might perceive as strict and serious and out-dated. “I see our students as joyful with a love of learning,” he said with a smile.

Harvest Festival to offer exceptional fall experience The Habersham Marketplace, located at 13 Market St. off of Joe Frazier Road in Beaufort, will host the Fourth Annual Habersham Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 27, from 12-6 p.m. The festival is a one-day regionally expanded farmer’s market and a celebration of food, fun, art, music and entertainment There is no cost to attend and food and drink will be

Friends helping Friends of Hunting Island Friends Lauren Tillapaugh and Janet Garrity are teaming up to help some other friends, the Friends of Hunting Island. Tillapaugh and her husband own Sweetgrass Restaurant and Bar on Dataw Island and Garrity is the author and photographer of the newly released book, “Goin’ Down the River, Fish Camps of the Sea Islands.” The two have joined together to sponsor a luncheon to benefit the Friends of Hunting Island on Thursday, October 25, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Sweetgrass. The luncheon will feature a creative “upscale fish camp” menu and a presentation by Garrity about her experiences photographing and researching fish camps and making her book, followed by a book signing. A portion of the proceeds from both

the luncheon and book sales during the event will be donated to the Friends of Hunting Island. Tillapaugh and Garrity both came to Beaufort from Ithaca, N.Y.; Garrity in 2008 and Tillapaugh in 2010. Neither woman knew of the other when they were leading parallel lives in Ithaca. It wasn’t until Tillapaugh, and her husband Jeff, opened Sweetgrass that Garrity became acquainted with the couple. Then, the Tillapaughs moved into Coosaw Point on Lady’s Island not knowing that Garrity and her husband, Bud, lived there too. “It was as if fate was putting Janet and me together to become friends and neighbors,” said Tillapaugh, a graduate of Cornell University with a Masters of Hospitality Management. Before Tillapaugh moved to Beaufort,

she was the director of marketing and events at the upscale Aurora Inn, just north of Ithaca. Garrity was vice president of account services for Garrity Communications in Ithaca. “We often stopped at the Aurora Inn for business lunches or with friends,” said Garrity, “so Lauren and I must have crossed paths, but it wasn’t until we both ended up in Beaufort living in the same neighborhood that we got to know each other.” “It just seems like a natural progression of events that put Janet and I together,” said Tillapaugh, “And we are both very happy to use our resources to help support the Friends of Hunting Island. It’s friends helping friends.” For reservations for the “Lunch by the River,” call 843-838-2151 before Oct. 20.

Contributions to United Way of the Lowcountry help save lives — in part by improving health. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile serves Beaufort and Jasper counties, providing muchneeded health and dental services to families in need. “We believe that when you change a child’s life, you change a family’s, which can change a community and ultimately, the world,” said Nikole Gore-Layton of the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. “Through our programs we strive to change the lives of as many children as possible. The Care Mobile program is impacting the lives of children and families every day. “Dental screenings, dental cleanings, fluoride treatment, sealants, and dental education were provided to 1,622 children in the Lowcountry last year. Nearly two-thirds of the children served were not Medicaid patients. A total of 4,528 procedures were performed that enhanced the health and well-being of children in Beaufort and Jasper counties,” she said.

For the love of gravy, leave my eyebrows alone By Cherimie Crane Weatherford As if stilettoes and corsets weren’t restitution enough for Eve’s tasty transgression of the temptation type, females face an eternal sentence of required pain for the pleasure of one palette. Not once have I ever heard proclamations of excitement over waxing, plucking, or even utter joy over search for a new bra. Women have been conditioned to expect, tolerate and even pay heavily for a certain amount of preparatory pain. Such a thorough conditioning it is, not only do we pay for it; we schedule it, dress up for it and we often tip as well. In order to appear acceptable to the masses, comfort just doesn’t conform. Avoiding pain is a bit of a hobby for me;

obvious pain is one I truly enjoy evading. During my frequent visits to ER’s all over this great land, sedation is given freely for broken bones, intense intestinal turmoil and even slipCherimie and-fall follies. My Crane Weatherford bewildered brain strains in earnest to clearly differentiate between a hospital bed and a spa table. One of them attempts to relieve pain, one inflicts it and both are costly as all get out. I suppose the spa smells better, but so does a barn. It is amazing to see such mannerly, manicured women at every turn. Knowing

the pain, patience and price required for such maintenance, I find myself dumbfounded by the sheer determination to defy creation. Battles rage against hair, wrinkles be damned and heaven forbid the resurgence of roots. Regarding society’s gentle fire poking prod to the face, I draw the line. Until the age of 22, it had never occurred to me that ripping resistant brows from their forever home would improve quality of life. Waxing was something we did to the cars right before it rained, and plucking was reserved for the chickens Daddy wouldn’t let me name. Growing up in the middle of a cow pasture, mud treatments were certainly not seen as a luxury. A relaxing day was on the levee with worms you didn’t have to dig and fish you didn’t have to clean. Beauty was

velvet rye grass connecting to baby blue sky on a Sunday. Maintenance was repairing a fence, replacing the siding on the barn, bailing hay, or wearing shoes. Hesitantly, I have joined the supposed civilized circle and begrudgingly borrowed several of the cosmetic customs; however silly some seem to be. Never will I master makeup application as I never was one to color in the lines. Polished and prim I may never be — my hair has a brain and hemisphere all of its own, and a lifetime of double dares has left my skin with a road map of memories showcased by story-worthy scars. Dragging my flat feet, I will attempt to maintain a mask of acceptable measure, but for the love of gravy, leave my eyebrows alone.

Could Crystal Lake be operated as a public-private venture? By Jim Hicks

Beaufort County is in the process of investigating the feasibility of using a publicprivate venture concept for the operation of the Crystal Lake Park. Public-private ventures are not new. The reason Marines and sailors who are assigned to our local military bases have adequate housing available on the bases today is the result of a very successful public-private

venture. The military provides the land on which the homes are built, the private company builds and maintains the homes and rents them to the Marines and sailors. It is a great example of the use of a successful winwin concept. When Beaufort County finally managed to purchase the property around Crystal Lake, it had also acquired the 3,000-sq-foot building that

served as the commercial facility for Butler Marine. During the construction of the new McTeer Bridge, the facility was used as the headquarters of the contractor who was building the bridge. Beaufort County recently released a request for proposals from either an individual or business that would allow a private party or business to operate from the facility and in return the private business would

operate and maintain the park as a joint venture with the county. The deadline for submission of proposals to the county as part of the project is November 14. The use of a public-private venture to promote private contribution to the operation of a public park is a new and untested direction for Beaufort County. However, as our economy struggles to regain its momentum and our government is faced with

declining revenue, perhaps it is time to try new things. At least a query to the private business community to determine if serious interest exists is in order. The complete request for a proposal can be viewed at the Beaufort County website (purchasing department) and also at the Lady’s Island Business Professional Association’s website at

Two years ago, I was sitting around a bonfire at an oyster roast at a friend’s house in Beaufort when I got an urgent phone call from my dad telling me I had to come to Texas right away because my mom, who was in the hospital after having a brain tumor removed, had fallen asleep and did not wake up. They had her on life support so we could all see her and say goodbye one last time. The hours, days, weeks after my mom’s death seem surreal even today. Blurry, yet etched so clearly in my mind. “Every day after and every night since, I find myself crying when the memory hits. Sometimes it knocks me down, Sometimes I can just push it away. “ Those are lines from a song called “Through my Prayers” by my favorite band, The Avett Brothers. I thought after two years it would be easier, but it’s so much harder, especially when I look at my baby boy. Now that Wolfe’s 9 months (oh, where does the time go?) watching him grow has been so amazing, and I want to document all his “firsts” — first word, first step, first

Pam’s P.O.V.

Pamela Brownstein is a 5-foot-tall Scorpio who adores Beaufort and hopes you will join her adventures in life, love and parenting. Contact her at

time eating a banana — and in the process, I realize I don’t know the age that I was when I met these mini-milestones. I instinctively reach for the phone to call the only person who remembered and celebrated all the little moments in my life. I still have to remind myself that my mom won’t answer. Even after two years of not hearing her voice, it’s like I still can’t believe she’s not here. Rationally, I know it. But emotionally, I haven’t fully accepted that my wonderful, amazing, beautiful mother is not here to hold her grand baby and to help me during these important times. Through many conversations with friends and family breaking down about how life is not the same without her, I realized that what I miss most is her unconditional support and encouragement. I have that from many other people in my life, but my mom was always my biggest fan and cheerleader, and she believed in me when I didn’t

believe in myself. And to not have that now when I have no idea what I’m doing as a parent is super tough for me. With another birthday of mine fast approaching, I find myself already unwilling to accept my age, and becoming terrified of facing my own mortality. What if I die, will Wolfe know how much I love him? Am I making good decisions to ensure that I’ll be here and healthy for him as long as I can? Will he know who I am as a person and how much I want the best for him? How I’m always late for everything and like to laugh, just like my own mother? We took Wolfe to visit my mom’s grave in Sea Pines on Hilton Head, and I cried the whole time because I’m mad at her for missing the joy in his eyes, for not being able to see his adorable Halloween costume or to hear his belly laugh. But now I know it’s my job to remember all these special baby times because it’s my turn to be someone’s biggest fan. And I also feel responsible to make sure I don’t forget all that my mom loved and taught me, so Wolfe will know her too. It gives me hope that she lives on through him.

lunch bunch Homemade bread, yummy sandwiches, salads and desserts beckon at


By Pamela Brownstein

On a beautiful fall afternoon, the Lunch Bunch gathered outside on the porch at Magnolia Bakery Cafe. We sipped mimosas as we chatted and indulged in several amazing appetizers including Terrine de Campagne, the chef ’s Lowcountry pork pate on house made bread; the house smoked salmon cheese cake served with artisan bread; and the mini crab cakes, which were fresh and absolutely outstanding. Nikki liked the crab cakes so much, that she also ordered one for lunch. The 5 oz. all lump true Maryland crab cake was served over a bed of field greens. Most of the group chose sandwiches from the lunch menu. Kim had a BLT with applewood smoked bacon and mayo that was really good, while Buck enjoyed the Sweet Slice Ham Salad on oatmeal molasses bread with a side of the famous pasta salad. David liked his Chicken Panino, a warm sandwich made with sliced chicken breast, bacon, Provolone cheese and Dijonnaise on herb bread. I loved my ham and cheese strata, which is similar to a quiche, but it’s a layered casserole made with fresh eggs, milk, bread, spices, ham and cheese.

Bonarda: Who Are You? By Celia Strong

Another long trip for us this week, figuratively speaking. Way down to Argentina. But that’s the only place we can really get this week’s wine. Trust me, though, it’s worth it. And, as we get closer to our Thanksgiving holiday, all of us are looking for good wines we can use. For me, that means not just good, but new and different and memorable. (Let’s face it, as good as the turkey is — it is just turkey. It really is all about the wine!) Now, as we start to look at where our wine comes from, we are in the lucky position of just having looked at Argentine wines a couple of weeks ago. That means, hopefully, we can learn a few new things about Argentina and not repeat ourselves. We all remember, I hope, that, in the beginning, Argentina made as much wine as it could without much interest in how good it was. Their first vineyard dated back to 1557 at Santiago del Estero with expansion taking it further into Mendoza in the 1560s. As the wine industry grew larger and larger, centralized in the western part of the country among the foothills of the Andes Mountains, the population of the country grew in the eastern regions, along the Atlantic coast. The transportation of the wine, from the western foothills to the eastern cities, was a problem that slowed the wine industry’s development to a while. In 1885, the completion of the railroad that connected Mendoza to Buenes Aires helped to insure the success of the young industry. In the 20th century, the development and success of the Argentine wine industry was deeply influenced by the economics of the rest of the country. In the 1920s, Argentina was the eighth richest country in the world. They had a large domestic market for their wines. From the time of the Great Depression, through the presidency of Juan Peron and up to the 1970s, the wine industry was sustained by inexpensive “vino de mesa.” In the early 1970s, the average Argentinian citizen drank almost 24 gallons of wine each year. At the same time, the average American was drinking

less than one gallon per year. (Thank goodness we’ve progressed well beyond those meager beginnings!) As we’ve said before, Mendoza is probably the best known of Argentina’s wine regions and is considered the heart of the country’s wine industry. They make about two-thirds of the country’s entire wine production, although not all of it is made with “vitis vinifera” grapes. This region is located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, in the shadow of Mount Aconcaqua. Some of the Mendoza vineyards are planted at the highest elevations of any in the world; the average vineyards there are situated at 1,970 to 3,610 feet above sea level. The principle wine producing areas in Mendoza are in two main departments — Maipu and Lujan. Argentina’s first delineated appellation was established in 1993 in Lujan de Cuyo. Malbec is the region’s most planted grape variety, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Chardonnay. However, we are going to look at a less well-known variety this week — Bonarda. Bonarda is probably one of the most confusing varieties to learn. Actually, the name “Bonarda” is applied to several different grapes. Bonarda dell’Oltrepo Pavese, also called Croatina, is a variety grown in the Lombardy region of Italy. It makes mildly tannic wines similar in style to Dolcetto. Bonarda Novarese is Uva Rara, grown in Novara and Vercelli. Bonarda Piedmontese is grown in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, around Turin. It makes light and fruity wines that are labeled Bonarda dell’Astigiano, Bonarda di Chieri, Bonarda di Gattinara or Bonarda del Monferrato. Yes, these are all Italian names for different Italian grapes. Yes, we’ve never heard of them before. And, yes we all probably hope to never hear

The Bonarda grape grown in Argentina is actually the Charbono grape of California. This week’s Tahuan Bonarda wine comes from Ernesto Catena Vineyards, dedicated to small production wines with a distinct style. about any of them again. And, yes, we haven’t yet mentioned our Bonarda that makes this week’s wine. There is one more Bonarda grape. It is actually the Charbono grape of California that is called Bonarda in Argentina. Thank goodness for DNA testing on grapes (or more professionally “ampelography”). It is how we can tell these grapes apart and stop telling bits and pieces about each of them interchangeably. Our Charbono/ Bonarda comes from Savoie. There it was known as Corbeau or Douce Noir (sweet black). In Italy, Dolcetto is sometimes called Dolce Nero (sweet black), but despite the same nickname, these two grapes are not the same. Dolcetto ripens early and makes a light, fruity wine. Charbono ripens very late and makes wines with great substance. And one more distressing thing — whichever of all these Bonardas is really in Argentina, the facts as we have them today may change as researchers learn more. The only thing that will stay the same is how good these wines can be. It is believed that Bonarda slipped into Argentina during the 19th century when immigrants from all over the wine world were moving to different vineyards as phylloxera spread. Today, there are about 46,000 acres of Bonarda in Argentina, 38,000 of them in Mendoza. A generation ago it was the country’s most widely planted variety. Most of it, though, was used for blending in anonymous jug wines, part of the huge per capita consumption of Argentine citizens. Bonarda was popular with growers because it has big yields, especially with enough water. It has intense color and good fruit flavors that made it a suitable partner for even the Criolla, non-vitis vinifera, wines. Because of

this connection to lower level, jug style wines, many growers and vintners avoided using Bonarda. Perseverance paid off, though, and today Bonarda has a growing popularity. Its wines are fruity (cherries, plums), smooth, pleasant, and, not the ordinary. These wines are not quite as heavy or full as Malbecs, have fewer tannins and mild acidity. Some producers are lucky enough to have old vine Bonarda in their vineyards. The wines from these are more concentrated in their fruit flavors (figs, raisins), more deeply colored, fuller bodied and really, really good if you find them! Finally, we come to our producer: Ernesto Catena. He is a fourth generation wine maker, the eldest son of Nicolas Catena. Ernesto has traveled and lived around the world; he has a degree in computer Science and Economy, a Master’s degree in design from Milan and a history degree from London. He is an avid reader, painter, art collector, horseman, polo player and archer. Ernesto Catena Vineyards is dedicated to small production wines with a distinct style. His Tahuan (pronounced ta-wan) Bonarda comes from vineyards at 2,297 feet elevation. Before fermentation, the grapes are cold macerated for 21 days. Seventy percent of the wine is aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels, half of each. The wine is a deep red color with aromas of plums, red currants, tobacco, game, mocha and chocolate. The mouth-feel is smooth with cherry, plum and herb flavors with a sweet, spicy kick on the finish. The tannins are light and there is just a hint of acidity. The whole package of the Tahuan Bonarda is special. Particularly for your holiday dinners. For $14.99. Happy holiday dinner, happy Bonarda, wherever it came from, happy us.

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol

Your dog and his government The dog days of summer may have heralded a slew of food recalls affecting people, but today, dogs are the ones in jeopardy as some of their treats have come under fire for being not only dangerous, but in some cases, deadly. Since 2007, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received nearly 2,200 consumer complaints relating to jerky treats. Over the last 18 months the reports have contained information on 360 canine deaths and one feline death. Although the FDA has been actively investigating the reports of illnesses, it states it is no closer to identifying the source of the adulteration. The agency has posted cautionary advisories on its website regarding these products. I check this site regularly because I’m a dog food wonk, but realistically, it’s not a website one would cruise for fun. http://www.fda. gov/AnimalVeterinary/SafetyHealth/ ProductSafetyInformation/ ucm295445.htm. According to the Food Poisoning Bulletin, consumer advocates are insisting that the FDA ban dog treats, specifically all types of dog jerky that are manufactured in China. In a letter last month one consumer coalition, Food & Water Watch, asked FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg to block the importation of any more

Chinese dog snacks. “The FDA has shirked its responsibility to keep U.S. citizens and their pets safe, and it must step up and block these potentially deadly treats from harming more animals,” said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. The FDA responded that they have been aware of the issue for some time, and have conducted a multitude of tests on the Chinese dog treats in question. Product samples were tested for Salmonella, metals, furans, pesticides, antibiotics, mycotoxins, rodenticides, nephrotoxins (such as aristolochic acid, maleic acid, paraquat, ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, toxic hydrocarbons, melamine and related triazines) and were screened for other chemicals and poisonous compounds. Mysteriously, those tests could never determine what, if anything, was making dogs sick. As a result, the FDA claims it cannot invoke a recall of the

questionable products until a laboratory can find a dangerous ingredient in them. The agency has not given up, however. It continues to test for various causes in Chinese dog treat jerky samples. It has also contracted private laboratories to do the same in the hopes that one of them will find a determining toxicity. It’s worth noting that in April, the FDA admitted it sent agents to China to inspect the poultry slaughter facilities producing the jerky treats. Chinese officials denied the agents access to those facilities. Food & Water Watch contends that incident should have been reason enough for the FDA to take more substantive measures against the products. In Washington, on behalf of pet owners after the 2007 Chinese melamine scare, Senator Dick Durbin

(D-Il.) introduced a new food safety bill with Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-Ct.) (The Safe Food Act – S. 654 and H.R. 1148 in the U.S. Senate and House, respectively). Earlier this year, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) demanded the FDA clarify its current procedure for notifying consumers, retailers, and manufacturers of pending investigations. He asked, “Would a consumer who goes to the store to purchase dog treats have any way of knowing that a particular product is under review other than scouring the FDA’s website?” Good question. In August, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) issued a letter to the FDA asking why the agency has not issued a recall. Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.) also urged the FDA to step up its investigation with his letter to the FDA commissioner. Representative Dennis Kucinich (Ohio) blasted the FDA, saying, “By allowing the treats to stay on the market as the years-long investigation drags on, the FDA is guaranteeing more pets will die.” Might be time to drop a note to your elected officials because your dogs cannot write.
