Beaufort buys land for new fire station Groundbreaking for a new Beaufort fire station on Ribaut Road is expected in February with the anticipated completion in Fall 2014 after city of Beaufort leaders purchased the 1.2-acre site late last month. The location, at 1120 Ribaut Road, is ideally situated for fire protection and is geographically positioned between Port Royal’s main station and Beaufort’s Fire Headquarters near the intersection of

Ribaut Road and Boundary Street, Fire Chief Sammy Negron said. “We couldn’t be happier to see this project moving forward,” he said. “It will mean a lot to our ability to serve not only the city of Beaufort but also the Town of Port Royal with continued excellence and lower fire insurance rates.” Design work on the facility had continued through the summer, even as the city examined other potential sites

for the fire station. The new facility will replace the outdated one beside Beaufort Middle School and across from Mossy Oaks Elementary on Mossy Oaks Road. “This is the right piece of property for the new fire station. It meets our needs now and into the future as we continue to improve our service capabilities,” said Beaufort City Manager Scott Dadson. FIRE continued on page 2

news briefs Attempted murder suspect arrested

A Lady’s Island man has been arrested in connection with a burglary and assault that occurred at a Fripp Island home Saturday, Oct. 19. James Robert Workman, 40, was arrested at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20 on charges of 1st degree Burglary and Attempted Murder. Workman was being sought by deputies for Saturday’s late night home invasion at the home of his mother-in-law on Fripp Island. Deputies had responded to 5 Fairway Club Dr, just after 11 p.m. Saturday in reference to a reported assault. Upon arrival, contact was made with 68-yearold Catherine Harmon who was suffering from a head injury. Harmon advised that her son-in-law, James Workman, had come into her home yelling and cursing at her. He then struck her several times in the head with a baseball bat. Workman’s 16-year-old daughter, who was staying at the home, attempted to intervene, pulling Workman away from her grandmother. Harmon fled to a bedroom, locking herself inside.

BUSINESS/SALES Workman then left in his vehicle. Workman’s daughter was uninjured. Fripp Island security officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Workman in his vehicle as he fled the scene, however, Workman refused, continuing past the guard shack, headed off island. Harmon was transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital for treatment of head injuries. Just after 8 a.m. Sunday, Fripp Island security located Workman’s vehicle abandoned in the area of 443 Porpoise Dr. At about 1 p.m., deputies located Workman in the area of the restrooms at South Beach in Hunting Island State Park. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Beaufort County Detention Center where he remains, awaiting a bond hearing.

Suspect in Seabrook shooting arrested

A Seabrook teen has been arrested following an early morning shooting incident that left one man injured. Zajuan Travist James, 16, was arrested Monday, Oct. 14 on one count of Attempted Murder in connection with a

shooting incident. Deputies responded to a report of a gunshot victim in the area of Seabrook Center Road at 12:30 a.m. Upon arrival, they located 50-year-old Craig Jenkins suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the hand and abdomen. Jenkins advised he’d been shot while walking in the area of 56 Seabrook Center Road. As the investigation ensued, it was learned that Jenkins had been involved in a verbal altercation with Zajuan James earlier Sunday. Just before the shooting, they ran into each other again as they were each walking on the same road. James reportedly brandished a gun, fired several rounds at Jenkins, then fled. James has been charged as an adult and is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center.

continued from page 1 Beaufort City Council on May 28 authorized contract negotiations for the 1120 Ribaut Road site. As part of its due diligence in early summer, the city commissioned a geotechnical study of the site to determine soil conditions, drainage and other concerns. The report confirmed the city’s expectation of having to deal with new regulations for earthquake conditions – but also indicated the need to dig up the existing soil to a depth of five feet, truck it away, and replace it with better soil to bring the property level with Ribaut Road. Since May 28, the Savannah architectural firm Hussey Gay Bell & DeYoung has been designing the new fire station. The idea was to have designs ready when the city closed on the property, enabling construction to start sooner. The current fire station on Mossy Oaks Road is outdated and has major maintenance issues. That facility will 2

remain operational until the new fire station is complete. City leaders continue to discuss options for that site. After reviewing several other properties for the fire station project from July through early September, city leaders decided to stick with the best-suited property at 1120 Ribaut Road. The city bought the property in late September for $320,000 from Andrew Sears and Macie Sears Scherick of Jacksonville, Fla. The entire fire station project, including site acquisition, design, construction and fixtures/ furnishings, is financed through $2.2 million remaining in city bond sales. The current schedule calls for site and facility design to be complete by December, groundbreaking in February 2014, soil removal and replacement/site work done in early spring and the new station open for use in the Fall of 2014. “We are excited about the new fire station and how it will help us in our mission to provide the best possible fire prevention and fire protection services to the people of Beaufort and Port Royal,” Negron said.

Beaufort Memorial presents ‘The Man Plan’ It’s a well-known fact: men don’t like going to the doctor. Unless a bone is protruding from their skin or they’ve hurled up half their organs, they’d rather do the man thing and just tough it out. “They’re stubborn,” explained Dr. Robert Vyge, a Board-certified internist at Beaufort Memorial Lady’s Island Internal Medicine. “They think if they’re feeling good, why go to the doctor?” The problem is that many health issues are not detectable until it’s too late. Take cardiovascular disease. If you ignore high cholesterol or high blood pressure, you could end up having a heart attack or stroke. To save mothers and wives needless nagging, Beaufort Memorial Hospital is presenting “The Man Plan: Taking control of your health,” a self-help seminar offering men evidence-based

recommendations aimed at preventing serious illnesses. “You change the oil in your car every three months to keep it running longer,” Vyge said. Dr. Michael “Preventative health Staley is the same thing for the body.” The free seminar, hosted by the hospital’s LifeFit Wellness Center, takes place at 8 a.m. on Nov. 8 at the Quality Inn in Beaufort’s Towne Center, 2001 Boundary Street. To ensure you don’t skip the most important meal of the day, a light continental breakfast will be served. Vyge will start off the program with a discussion on men’s most common health issues and offer advice on preventing and

treating them. He’ll talk about the latest advancements in screenings and tests used to catch disease early when it’s most treatable and lifestyle changes you can Dr. Robert make to improve Vyge your health. BMH Boardcertified urologist Dr. Michael Staley will follow with information on belowthe-belt medical problems like benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), low testosterone and prostate cancer. “These are issues that affect many men as they age,” said Staley, of Coastal Carolina Urology Group. “There’s no reason to suffer with the symptoms when there are available remedies. You

just have to talk to your doctor.” Staley also will be discussing the latest technology in the treatment of prostate cancer, including robot-assisted prostate surgery. The Beaufort Memorial mobile wellness unit will be on site prior to the seminar, providing low cost and free screenings. Seminar attendees will be able to take advantage of $10 PSA blood tests and cholesterol checks and free blood pressure and glucose screenings from 7 to 8 a.m. The men’s health program — part of Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s “Life Lived Better” seminar series, hosted by the hospital’s LifeFit Wellness Center — is free and open to the public, but registration is required as seating is limited. Call 522-5585 for information or reservations.

A life without glasses or contacts?

How to know if vision correction LASIK eye surgery is right for you By Dr. Kenneth D. Farr, MD

LASIK has become an excellent option for people to correct their vision, enhance their quality of life — and reduce or eliminate a lifetime of dependence on glasses and contacts. LASIK has become an extremely popular surgery because it allows people to turn their dreams of clear vision into reality in a matter of minutes. In LASIK surgery, the cornea is reshaped by a special laser, changing the eye’s focusing power and correcting specific vision problems. The surgery is performed as an office procedure. The actual laser treatment takes only a few minutes. New advances in technology have made LASIK

Dr. Kenneth Dr. Farr

extremely safe with the ability to provide a wide range of vision correction. At Palmetto Eye Specialists, we are pleased to offer the exciting option of “All Laser LASIK” — also known as “Bladeless LASIK.” This innovative new technology uses a femtosecond laser to create a precise treatmentoffering greater precision and

control. How can you decide if LASIK is right for you? A large percentage of nearsighted, farsighted and

astigmatic patients are potential candidates for LASIK. Patients should be 18 years of age or older, have healthy eyes that are free from retinal problems, corneal scars and any eye disease. In addition, the best candidates for LASIK are people with a lifestyle or occupation in which they are dissatisfied with their contact lenses or glasses. If you are considering LASIK Eye Surgery, make sure that you consult with an experienced LASIK surgeon — the skill of your LASIK surgeon is crucial to a successful outcome. When performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, LASIK is one of the safest surgical procedures available. It can truly change lives.

... because I’m not as pretty By Takiya La’Shaune Smith

When Maria walks into a room, she strides in, completely unaware of the head-turnng capability she possesses, not only in her vibrant youthfulness but in the obvious visibility of her beauty. At a petite 4 feet, 8 inches, Maria has a svelte frame, creamy mocha latte skin, gorgeous shoulder-gracing curls, length envy eyelashes, china doll eyes and a “just left the gym” figure. Yet, as we sit down to discuss her personal view of self-image, it seems as if she was left out, didn’t get the memo or has been looking at herself in a dirty, cracked mirror. Maria is cute, pretty, beautiful, gorgeous and yet she has been flawlessly flawed when referring to herself as not being pretty enough in comparison to other young women her age. Maria is a 19-year-old single mother of a beautiful baby girl, and though 19 and single may not have been her ideal choice of steps ordered, she knows one thing for sure, and it’s change for a secure future. Coping — not only with being a young mother, but raising a child alone — is enough to take even the most mature of us along for an emotional ride. Throw in having to postpone college, forego the peer

social scene and struggle to commit to a boyfriend, who, aside from the fact now shares a child with you, continues on with life as usual. The end result, all too often, is the exact place Maria has found herself, which is smothered in low self-esteem, a poor view of self-image and a heart-aching dose of little to no self-respect. When complimented on her looks, Maria hesitates with an unsure pause, not quite confident in how to respond. In further discussion, she gives me insight on the complex relationship she has and states that she dislikes the place she is at. “I don’t know if I’m enough for my boyfriend because I’m not as pretty.” As my heart melted to hear such a confession, the sting of the truth and the state of our female youth sunk in even deeper. Hidden within that one sentence, that one confession, was a million and one wounds needing to be healed. Being enough. Being independent. Being

confident. Being secure. Being assured. Being strong. Being loved. Being respected. Just being should have been more than enough, but for Maria, like so many girls, it wasn’t. For the next couple of hours I listened to what has become a similarity in words, actions and situations amongst not only young ladies but women. Women feeling that what we have, who we are and what we possess are not enough. No doubt, the definition of beauty goes far beyond and even exceeds this world’s explanation of what we have placed in a box and tied with a pretty little bow. Beauty encompasses more than just a look, requires more than just a style and reaches wide outside the lines. Beauty starts within. It’s the voice of love, hope and uplifting. How can a voice be heard if we are not willing to hear it speak?

Play for Your Health By Martha O’Regan

When was the last time you played like you were a kid again for no reason at all? I’m not talking about playing a sport or a board game or playing to impress or engage your kids or grandkids, but a time when you truly just lowered all veils of ‘adulthood’ and just played as though nothing else mattered. Maybe it was getting lost in amazement watching a slinky travel down your stairs, skipping around your yard chasing butterflies or climbing a tree so you could spy on all those below; can you remember a time? If you can, thank yourself. If not, why? When I was younger, I remember a quote saying “we don’t cease to play because we grow old, we grow old because we cease to play” and vowed to play as much as possible so I wouldn’t grow old. But, as life happens with responsibilities for education, a career, family, bills, etc., that vow became a distant memory. I think

we all forget, or maybe we just don’t allow ourselves because we are the adults now, carrying on the same patterns and beliefs of our parents, who likely also forgot to play. We often can’t even remember what it feels like to play and laugh like we did when we were little people, until we do. And, when we do remember and make a conscious choice to play again, we experience freedom. The added bonus is that our health receives benefits as well. Recently, I had the amazing pleasure to

be amongst nine grown adults of various ages, as we covered ourselves in mud, head to toe, giggling and remembering what it felt like to have no responsibilities, being full of imagination and curiosity. As we felt, smelt and smeared the mud, we each went back to our childhoods. As we held the space honoring each “child” present, we felt many barriers wash away as we integrated both the adult and the child deciding, I too, am worthy of fun in my life. We all are worthy of fun and joy in our lives, contrary to long held beliefs and patterns from the big people in our lives and the big people in their lives. In a “the sky is falling” culture steeped in fear and judgment, true authentic play doesn’t come with ease ... until it does. It is all about choice. So, where does one begin? Go back to when you were a child. What did you love to do with your friends or alone? What sort of things did you create before someone told you “you aren’t good enough

In addition, the providers will begin delivering babies at Coastal Carolina Hospital in the spring of 2014, when the Hardeeville-based hospital opens its new women’s unit.

to become an artist or musician” or “oh, grow up, you are a big kid” or whatever favorite disempowering statement your “big people” expressed. As a reminder, there is no judgment on our “big people’.” They were doing the best they could. As you think back on those days, find a memory that brings up joy. Feel what joy feels like in your body and make a conscious decision to return there over and over again while seeking opportunities to re-create it in your life now by taking an art class, playing in some mud, taking a laughter yoga class, or simply skipping and dancing around. As we begin to wake up to our own power within, the spiritual aspect of who we “be” is seeking a return to when joy was expressed freely and openly. At first, it feels awkward and difficult, but as the barriers are dissolved, it becomes easier, more fun and playful. So, give yourself permission to play for no reason other than it just feels good.

Unmasking source of pain: Headaches, discomfort could be caused by your bite By Stephen W. Durham

The strongest muscles in the body are not necessarily the biggest. Your jaw muscles make this one of the most powerful joints in the body, and when it is not aligned it can be the source of a variety of pains, discomforts and distractions. In fact, some studies show more than 92% of recurrent headaches can be traced to TMD — temporomandibular disorder — a strain on jaw muscles caused by faulty alignment of the jaw. People feel a bad bite in a great many ways, and in places they might not know are connected with the jaw. A variety of pains caused by “the great pretender” It is estimated that 25% to 30% of people suffer from TMD. Possibly two or three times that many people have the disorder and don’t know it yet.

So TMD is sometimes called “the great pretender.” It shows up as neck aches, sleep disorders, poor posture, numbness in the shoulders and down the arms, dizziness, a ringing in the ears, clicking or grating in the jaw joints, pain behind the eyes — and headaches, even migraines. When TMD is relieved, people experience more energy, a sunnier disposition and even a better appearance, because the source of their pain is resolved. In addition, fixing TMD can restore facial height, relax the features and make smiling something that just comes up more often. When people feel better, they look better. Step One: Relax the jaw. Each patient is unique, so the first step is to find the optimal jaw alignment for him or her. Step one is to relax the jaw muscles. In many cases this can be accomplished in about an hour using the techniques

unstrained. Nerve feedback from the head and neck to the brain is calmed. That calms other body systems, too, and the overall effect is less tension and better health. TMD goes undiagnosed so often, and the effects are so profound, that the benefit of getting to the bottom of it is very great indeed. A sense of that impact comes from a Nobel Prize winner in brain research who said that 90% of the brain’s output is devoted to relating the body to gravity. So misalignment, like TMD, can be a big drain on your outlook, your energy and your brain’s capacity for thinking, operating the body and healing. Fixing that alignment can be one of the most worthwhile steps toward a patient’s own best health. Durham Dental is located at Beaufort Town Center. Visit or call 843-379-5400.

Don’t miss this weekend’s Fall Tour of Homes This is a great opportunity to take a sneak peek inside of some of Beaufort’s most impressive historic homes rarely, if ever, open to the public. A spectacular array of homes and gardens, seven on tour for the first time, will be open to lucky ticket holders in the downtown Beaufort Historic District for the three day Fall Festival of Houses and Gardens event starting this Friday. There are three different tours for each of the three days, so please check the schedules and order tickets online at or go by the Historic Beaufort Foundation (HBF) office at 208 Scott St. or The Arsenal the day of. “This tour excites me because we are opening large planters’ homes, like the Elizabeth Barnwell Gough house, that has not been opened in 20 years, to the modest Smalls-Nash Cottage, which represents an era of Beaufort’s history when formerly enslaved African Americans were first able to buy property, said HBF Executive Director Maxine Lutz. New owners of “The Castle,” Elizabeth Locke and John Staelin, will be interpreting what has been called “the

most beautiful house in America” in a new and personal way. The painting filled homes of renowned artists Rebecca Davenport and Jerry Stocks also add interest to the history and beautiful architecture on tour. “We are so grateful to all the wonderful home owners and our hardworking volunteers who are helping make this year’s into such a stellar tour,” said Maxine Lutz. She added, “Isabelle Reeves (the events coordinator) and staff Jacque Wedler and Sandy Patterson have done an absolutely superb job again this year pulling it all together.” Some of Beaufort’s largest and most iconic homes are on tour after being off the tour for many years, along with, for the first time, a cottage built by Civil War hero and African American Congressman Robert Smalls — the Smalls-Nash Historic Residence. The residence will be turned into a teaching museum based on scholarly research for the duration of the tour. Robert Smalls built this charming cottage at 508 Duke St. as a rental property in 1890. It is known as the “Smalls-Nash Historic Residence” because of its bequest to the Historic

laundry will be set up with cast iron boiling pots along with ironing in the early kitchen. The front bedroom will feature the year 1910 illustrating how descendants of a Civil War era soldier freedman’s family might have lived. The front parlor will be set up with Victorianstyle furniture, and feature photos of Robert Smalls. Although there was never a Root Doctor’s office in the house, also on display in another room will be an educational exhibit showing a pre-WWII Root Doctor’s’ office, which honors the history of the migration of traditional African “root medicine” to the Lowcountry. Special thanks goes to volunteers who worked on the cottage: Mary Ragsdale, Alice Wright, Ervena Faulkner, Cheryl Steele, Susan Rushton, Tommy McTeer, Dan Huff and J Weidner. The annual Fall Festival of Homes has been called one of Beaufort’s most important events in bringing out-oftown visitors to local hotels, restaurants and businesses in the fall. Big thanks goes to this year’s sponsors: Lowcountry Real Estate, BB&T, Publix Supermarkets Charities and Spring Island.

“Headache is one of the most common reasons for physician visits by patients. One study tracked 953 headache patients for five years. They made nearly 4,000 visits to doctors in seeking relief from headache. Though physicians have identified and classified muscle tension headache, the medical literature is virtually absent of any treatment other than drugs or psychological therapy. These patients went to every conceivable medical specialty but only 8% of those visits were to dentists. Every dentist who has treated patients knows that the bite can cause multiple health problems termed, TMJ syndrome or dysfunction.” (Mytronics: Vol 23, Nov. 07) My daughter and partner Katherine Hefner and I have treated hundreds of patients with great success eliminating such problems as temporal (side of head) headaches, headaches at the base of the skull, neck ache, jaw pain, shoulder pain and ringing of the ears. 8

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


get to know author, philosopher maggie schein By William Laney Who: Dr. Maggie Schein. Born and raised in Atlanta. Education: Holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Chicago What she does: “On the creative front, I am in charge of wrangling dreams and surreal perceptions into words that can be put together with a least a modicum of grammatical and narrative cohesion. I write fables,” Maggie says. She also works as author Pat Conroy’s assistant. Her first book: “Lost Cantos of the Ouroboros Caves” is literary/metaphysical fiction that is receiving raves. Says Maggie, “My academic focus is Ethics and particularly the concepts of both cruelty and humanity. My readers tell me my stories help heal wounds in their psyche. They find the fable format particularly good for this.” Maggie had a friend who had a heart attack and quadruple bypass, but was not able to get much better even though the medical story or prognosis was very good. Maggie realized that his real wound was on the soul level because he had lost someone he had loved very much. She was inspired to write him a fable. “That story made him weep, finally. Made him open up. Made him grieve and want to live and want to love that deeply again. That is the interest that led me to do what I do ... to find the story that is the right medicine for the wound. If I had the money, I would try to create a literary apothecary,” she said. HER FAMILY: Maggie’s parents are Beaufort residents Martha and Bernie Schein. Both teachers for more than 30 years, her mom is a practicing psychologist and dad Bernie, who was an author and a teacher at a prestigious private school in Atlanta, is now the interim principal of Beaufort’s new charter Bridges Preparatory School. They are also both lovers of literature and taught creative writing passionately. “I definitely grew up in a world of words and stories and where learning and teaching was the going religion.” Says Maggie


Authors Maggie Schein and Pat Conroy.

with a smile, “Might have had a tiny little something to do with me also becoming a teacher and a writer.” Why she lives where she lives: “I came back to Beaufort because I spent most of my youth away from my parents, and they are here; and because the smell of tea olive and salt water is better than any expensive incense; because living in a small town is like driving a Ferrari — there is so much condensed energy for good, but it can flip over or skid damn quick if one isn’t a skilled driver; and because when I was out of work in Chicago, a great teaching job happened to pop up, of all places, here,” Maggie explained. About her experience as a new author: “I am not a public person. I am chatty, but I tend towards the hermit side. So, needless to say, I was quite nervous about introducing myself and my book to a huge audience — live. But what happened, when people started reading the stories, is that people were laughing (and Tweeting, might I add), and crying in the audience. I never expected such warmth and acceptance and eagerness from those who read me. I now feel guilty for ever having been nervous. I should have trusted them more.” Her other interests, Vivian, Merlin, Eliza, Jericho, Basho and Juliette: “I have been and am currently involved in various animal welfare/

rescue endeavors. I have three rescued pit bulls and three rescued cats. I probably waste more time each day enjoying their antics than I do with any other form of procrastination.” Her most embarrassing moment recentLY: “I ran outside in my underwear and a T-shirt on Sunday morning to catch a lost dog ... and was seen by many neighbors. And I had mascara running down my face. Good news is I caught the little sucker and he’s back with his family. Bad news, everyone now knows I get my underwear from Walmart.” Future plans: “I am so excited to say that the audio version of my book, narrated by the great Janis Ian and produced by the equally great Stefan Rudnicki, will be coming out. After that, a new expanded edition of the book will be coming out through USC Story River Books — hardcover and with illustrations! I’ve been listening to Janis Ian since I was 18, to have her say my stories were beautiful nearly knocked the wind out of me. To have her offer to narrate the audio, DID knock the wind out of me. To have her do it with no funding when the kickstarter campaign fell through ... well, I was already breathless. She is a great mentor for an artist. She is open, gracious and generous, but she is also razor sharp about boundaries and when and how to set them. And she’s funny as hell. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the audio universe she created from my two dimensional words.” Right now, the last of the first edition of her books are available at The Beaufort Bookstore and through Maggie herself. There are only a few left. She said the audio is out now on www. and the new, expanded print edition of the book with illustrations will be announced on Facebook as well as her website,” Maggie will be signing books tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 25, with the great author Cassandra King, wife of Pat Conroy, at The McIntosh Book Shoppe at 917 Bay Street, downtown Beaufort from 1 to 4 p.m. Call 843-524-1119 for more information.

USCB Center For the Arts presents Black Violin Black Violin will bring the house down when classical, rock and hip hop converge in a genre-busting show at USCB Center for the Arts on Friday, Nov. 1. “Rule number one for a Black Violin show — this is a party!” exclaims Kev Marcus who, with Wil B, makes classical music cool with out-of-the-box compositions layering classical with hip hop, rock and blues when they perform. Classical to dueling strings Clad in jeans and baseball caps, the two classically trained string instrumentalists work hard to make it all look like play in their family-friendly, high-energy show. Kev plays electric violin and Wil the acoustic viola, sometimes with the intense seriousness of orchestra soloists and other times fiddling and strumming bluegrass-style while bantering back and forth in their version of dueling strings. “We want our audiences to leave their worries at home and let the music take control,” says Wil B. They are backed up by ace turntable whiz Dwayne Dayal (aka “DJ TK”) and percussionist Jermaine McQueen (aka “Beatdown”). Inspiration from Bach to P. Diddy The duo composes all its own music, sometimes

starting with a classical piece, like Bach’s “Brandenburg” concerto No. 3, or a contemporary piece from a blues, hip hop or rock artist. They turn it all upside down, mixing and melding until the incongruous musical styles have been fused into their signature stylistic “mash up.” So you might recognize Bach, Beethoven or Tchaikovsky along with Marvin Gaye, P. Diddy or Aerosmith while you’re clapping to the music and dancing in the aisles. Harnessing power of music After forming their group while in college in Florida, Kevin Sylvester and Wilner Baptiste started adding hip hop to their compositions as a way to change things up and keep it fun. As their popularity grew, they knew

they had found a way to inspire young audiences to listen and respond to each other through music, and to encourage them to always follow their dreams, no matter how offbeat. They will be joined by the Beaufort Youth Choir for one or two songs. The choir of fifth to 12th graders will be directed by Jordon Norris. Universal appeal Black Violin has performed in 49 states and 36 countries for audiences ranging from the troops in Iraq to Super Bowl attendees to the President’s Inaugural Balls. “We don’t have a demographic. It’s for anybody and everybody,” explains Wil. “We are blessed to be able to perform in any venue in any category.” “And you can bet our audience will see and hear something they have never experienced before,” says CFA Director Bonnie Hargrove. “We are expecting a sold out house for this one-and-only performance, and suggest that you make your reservations early.” Tickets available at or call 843-521-4145. Tickets are $25-$20 adults; $18- $15 for seniors; Students $15 - $10. All seats are reserved. Tickets also sold one hour prior to curtain at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1. USCB Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort.

“Art obliquely reflects social change.” — Abrie Fourie SCAD Exhibitions Director Laurie Ann Farrell is the unsung hero behind the success of the current show Abrie Fourie’s Oblique (through Nov. 8) at the Gutstein Gallery in Savannah, according to both South African born, Berlin-based artist Abrie Fourie whose solo show it is and Curator Storm Janse van Rensburg. So much of art history is actually “made” by hard-working, behind-the-scenes Poligon de sa Platja, Port de Soller, individuals like Laurie, I was glad to Balearic Islands, Spain, by South African hear them give her the credit due for artist Abrie Fourie. pulling off such a well-displayed, presentation started in Berlin by Abrie intimate show in this cavernous space. and Storm whereby a panel of 12 or Also refreshingly intimate in tone so artists and curators sit facing the was the public presentation which audience on their level in an elongated was a continuation of a form of ellipse and each shows a favorite photo

and talks about what the image means to them. The quiet, almost confessional, introspection that resulted was the perfect lead in to viewing Abrie’s carefully contemplated works on display whose power and poignancy might be missed by the usual quick off-the-street walk through. The artist’s photographs conjure up in my mind the phrase “something soft left behind” with images ranging from dirty snow to a forgotten homeless person under a discarded blanket, to a blood spatter next to a trampled blossom on a sidewalk in an apartheid era South Africa. The beautifully soft, the lost, and forgotten left behinds, contrasted with the hard-edged urban settings in which they are found, speak of a reality that has just happened —

and been forgotten. From the banal to the horrific. Attending the exhibit opening were SCAD founder Paula Wallace, Senior Curator Melissa Messina and Biennial Director David Elliott along with fellow South African artist Siemon Allen and artist Kendall Buster. “Oblique” was first presented at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, Germany, by project Curator Storm Janse van Rensburg who recently co-curated the well-received “GhostBusters II” at the Savvy Contemporary in Berlin with Nadin Siegert. Gutstein Gallery is located at 201 E. Broughton St., Savannah, open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 912525-4743.

Sixteen years after Herb and Dorothy transferred their entire collection to the National Gallery of Art, the number of works had doubled to over 4,000. The Gallery, one of the largest art institutions in the country and where the Vogel collection was supposed to find its permanent home, found that the abundance of work was more than they can handle. And so the national gift project, which will distribute 50 works to each of the 50 states, was launched as a creative, and unprecedented


The story of the 50X50 gift project, one of the largest and the most significant philanthropic projects in American art history, is not just about the values of art collecting.

A strong red from Spain: Numanthia Termes By Celia Strong

Numanthia: what a name. At least it’s pronounced just like it’s spelled (Newman-thee-ah). Historically, Numanthia was a town in ancient Spain where the citizens resisted the Romans. For more than 100 years, the Romans tried to occupy this town. And, for that whole time, the citizens resisted, preferring to die than become slaves to the Romans. So, the Romans burned the town. But, before we go into too much history, the wine of the week is a big, strong red from Spain. We will learn about where the wine is produced, a less known region, called Toro — yes, the same as the name for “bull.” Spain is the third largest producer of wine, after France and Italy, and the ninth in consumption. There are over 400 grapes grown in Spain, many of them native varieties, but 80 percent of their wines are made from about only 20 varieties. (The main ones are Tempranillo, Albariño, Garnacha, Palomino, Airen, Macabeo, Parellada, Xarel-lo, Cariñena and Monastrell.) There are almost 3 million acres of vines planted in the country, so they do have more vineyards than anyone else. Our Toro area is a Spanish DO, Denominación de Origen, located in the Zamora province in the region of Castile-Léon, in northwestern Spain. The Toro includes areas known as Tierra del Vino, Valle del Guereña and Tierra de Toro. There are almost 20,000 acres of vineyards here. During the Middle Ages, wines from the Toro were drunk all over the country. Their trading was encouraged with “royal privilege.” The ancient Greeks brought winemaking to Toro at the end of the 1st Century BC. Later, King Alphonso IX granted land to several religious orders with the stipulation that they plant vineyards. Normal policy around the world, at the time. The wine trade in Toro was successful and many of the 40 plus churches there today were built by the wealthy wine trade. At the end of the 19th Century, Toro wines were exported to France in large quantities. You might remember, this was the time when phylloxera invaded

most of France’s vineyards. The vines in Toro were safe because the soil there was so sandy and it protected the vines from the phylloxera bugs. (Locals like to claim that their ancestors resisted the Romans and their vines resisted phylloxera.) Later, the Toro vines were used to replant many of the infected vineyards in Spain. In addition to the sand, the vineyard soil in Toro had clay and limebearing puddingstone — a dark topsoil with fine and coarse sands. The Toro climate is continental, long hot summers and cold winters, with light rainfall and above average hours of sunlight every year. Tinto de Toro, a synonym for Tempranillo, and Garnacha are the red varieties allowed in the area, and Verdejo and Malvasia are the whites. The area was officially recognized in 1933, and the Toro DO was established in 1987. Bodega Numanthia is located in a small village, Valdefinjas, in Zamora. It was founded in 1998 by the Eguren family. From their beginning, Marcos and Miquel Eguren aimed to make the best wine from Toro. The estate owns about 100 acres of vines and roughly half of these are planted with 70 to 100 year old vines. The sandy soil, that was resistant to phylloxera, also allowed vines to grow much older. That means “old vine” here is really, really old. Numanthia actually has about 10 acres where the vines are 120 years old. Yikes! The vineyards at the estate are laid out in a patchwork of tiny plots. Most of them face south and southwest. The soils are basically sandy gravel over a clay sub-soil. Dry surface with some water retention underneath. Perfect for making the grapes work as they grow. Perfect for great flavors in the finished wine. The grape variety is Tinto de Toro, with vines that average over 50 years old. Their bunches are large, but each

berry (grape) is small. They produce deep color and strong tannins, especially when low yields are maintained. The vines are head-trained and dry farmed, with about 10 yards between each vine. That means about 500 vines per acres, a very low number. And, the vines’ roots? They grow down over 20 feet, struggling to the water in the clay soil. Between the struggle to grow and the maintained low yields, these vines make grapes with exceptional concentration and complexity and structure. Of course, since they are such good grapes, they are all hand-picked, usually between the middle and the end of September. After harvest, the grapes are fermented and macerated for three to four weeks in stainless steel tanks. The cap, the crust of grape skins and pulp that rises to the top of the tanks during these processes, is punched down and pumped over several times. This adds more flavor and texture to the wines. After maceration, the wines go into new, French barrels.

They rest a year, in the first year cellar, go through malo-lactic fermentation, and move on to the second year cellar. After about a year and a half, the wines are racked (rolled of their sediment) and blended. They are bottled the second year after their harvest. They are not fined or filtered in order to preserve their fruitiness and structure. Numanthia produces three different levels of red wines. Termanthia, the treasure of Toro, is the ultimate version. This wine includes much of the grapes from 120-year-old vines. Numanthia, the bodega’s signature wine, is mid-level. And, our wine, Termes (tare-mess), is the Toro signature wine. Even this wine has some of the grapes from the 120-year-old vines. Fermentation, with de-stemmed grapes, took eight days, with two punch downs each day, at controlled temperatures. Maceration — time sitting with the skins to pick up more color, flavors and textures — lasted 21 days with light pump-overs. Barrel aging lasted 16 months. Termes is intense, vibrant and lively. Its color is dark ruby with some purple edges. Its aromas are intense, with raspberry, red currant and cherries, mixed in with violets, lavender, spices and eucalyptus. In your mouth it is full and silky, with an explosion of fruit and a long, persistent finish. Tobacco, raspberries and blackberries linger with you. This wine is 100 percent Tinto de Toro, which means it’s all Tempranillo, but very different from other Tempranillo wines we’ve tasted and talked about. Termes is much fuller, much hardier and heavier. All the little pieces and parts of this DO and this Bodega come together in this bottle — dry growing conditions; lots of sun; not too fertile soil; older, even ancient, vines; fewer vines per acre; controlled yields; hands-on harvest and winemaking; aging. This is sort of a list of how to make a great tasting wine that is perfect for meats, seafood, and poultry. And, as you would expect, all this is not available without a price that reflects all its pieces and parts. Numanthia Termes is usually about $25, but for us, it’s $19.99. Enjoy.

One thing is for sure when it comes to raising a family. You can count on unexpected expenses: Your daughter needs braces. The roof leaks. The list goes on and on.

How Fido feels about Halloween By Tracie Korol

When my son was tiny, Halloween was a perplexing time when grown-ups decorated with squash, when Mom fussed around making something in the basement and shortly thereafter fussed around dressing him up in bunchy strange clothes. Then, one night, for no reason, Mom stuffed him into the bunchy clothes and took him to the neighboring houses wherein the inhabitants gave him candy. What a great idea! Why aren’t we doing this every day? Later, as he grew older, Halloween became a time of shared conspiracy in creating the perfect costume, competing with friends for the weirdest and coolest, testing a mother’s creativity and facility with foam rubber. Our neighborhood decorated and dressed for Trick or Treat night with costumed parents accompanying their costumed kids. The Halloween frenzy grew to the point where the neighborhood dogs were hobbling around wearing buns, skirts and wings. Our dog, Dave, who had a look of benign misery most of the time anyway, looked more despondent than usual on Halloween night and all we did was gel his topknot to look punk. To costume a dog is to deny his essential dogness. Deep within your dog’s chromosomes is the inherent sense of wolf behavior. In a wolf community,

one animal may “stand over” another, placing his body on or close to another as a communication, a scolding. To a dog, the experience of being bound into a Yoda suit does not elicit festivity, more, the uncomfortable feeling of being “ranked”. Notice when you dress up a dog they freeze in place as if they are being dominated. Also notice that is only a matter of moments until Best Friend begins to dislodge the garment by pawing, shaking, dragging or rolling in something foul so as to necessitate removal of the bumble bee hat. Dogs are extremely good sports. They will do just about anything to please their humans. Some maintain that Binky LOVES dressing up. But think about it. Does Binky really enjoy the sensation of a balloon glued to his nether parts, horns strapped around his head and a bell around his neck that clanks with every vibration? Probably not.

extreme — say, wedging a daschund into a bun, or a Maltese into fairy wings — is the perceived joy you see in the dog a result of the costume or the result of the liver treats you use to bribe him to hold still for pictures or the high-pitched “you’re-so-cute-oh-yes-you-are!!” that accompanies the reveal. A dog works on the What’s In It For Me principle. Loads of snacks and attention? Sure, I’ll feel bunchy and uncomfortable — for about a minute. Here’s another way of looking at what your costumed dog may feel. What if, one day, when you arrived at work, your boss announced, “Today is Underwear Day! Strip down to your skivvies!”. Um. How awkward is this? But, then your boss hands you a box of Godiva chocolates, tickets for the big game and

your co-workers cheer and tell you you look great in your tighty-whities. Well, okay then. Maybe not so bad. I can do this for a day. Tomorrow is back to normal, right? If you insist on dressing up your pet, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It must not constrict movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe or bark. Make sure his outfit doesn’t have dangly bits that he could trip over or chew off and swallow. Make sure he can move freely without clunking into furniture or snagging on branches. Make sure his outfit doesn’t make noise, tinkle, clank or rustle. A white stripe down the back of a black dog masquerades him as a skunk, black stripes on an orange dog can masquerade him as a tiger or a little hair gel can turn your Bedlington into a camel. All lowkey efforts that will afford him his safety and his dignity. Not unlike my son at age 2, your dog does not understand that Halloween is YOUR holiday, not his. Wearing a sweater in the winter keeps him warm; wearing something that makes him look like a banana or an armadillo is humiliating.
