How to save a life



Beaufort firefighters rescue couple in sinking boat Beaufort firefighters and police officers rescued a man and woman shrimping in the Beaufort River near Pigeon Point early Saturday, Oct. 1, when their boat began sinking — a rescue that possibly saved their lives. At 1:27 a.m. Saturday, the B e a u f o r t - Po r t Royal Fire Department responded in their Quick Response Vehicle to a call of Scott boaters in distress Robinson off Wilson Drive in Beaufort’s Pigeon Point neighborhood. The couple had been shrimping near Brickyard Creek but found their boat taking Steve on water about 60 Baske feet from a dock. With the current running swiftly and the woman unable to swim, Beaufort Fire Captain Scott Robinson and Fire Inspector Stephen Baske took action. Robinson decided the fastest and safest way to rescue the pair was to throw a rescue disk with a light line attached. He told the boaters to tie the line to their boat and then use it to pull a heavier rescue rope and flotation device to the boat. Within minutes, they had pulled the woman safely to shore where she was treated by Beaufort County EMS. Still aboard the boat, the man pulled the rig back, put on the harness and entered the water.

“Cancer was one of the best things that ever happened to me,” said Colleen Christensen, a surprising statement from a compassionate woman on her story of surviving breast cancer. She’s a woman who despite her healthy, athletic lifestyle was diagnosed with breast cancer April 2006 at the age of 52.



By Tess Malijenovsky

“I always thought I was the healthy one,” said Colleen, whose two sisters were also diagnosed with breast cancer. Until one afternoon when she visited Dr. Thompson for a routine checkup, the doctor inquired about her inverted nipple. “Oh, Colleen, you have cancer,” said Dr. Thompson, uttering the frightening three words that would jolt her life. Even after an MRI and a mammogram test, the tumor in Colleen’s breast went undetected until her visit with Dr. Thompson. Upon hearing the news, Colleen was in shock, unable to understand what this would mean. For Colleen’s husband, Rhett, “the love of her life,” who lost a father, a mother and a stepfather to cancer, the news was equally devastating. Fortunately, Colleen’s cancer was diagnosed within the first stage. SURVIVOR continued on page 4

Fall update of SC House District 124 Fall is in the air and the Lowcountry of South Carolina is a wonderful place to be. The SC General Assembly is adjourned until January 2012 so no legislation is moving at this time, but there is still work ongoing. I attended a National Teen Pregnancy Prevention meeting last month where South Carolina was applauded for our dual funded system which uses abstinence only and comprehensive education measures in all 46 counties with a collaboration of public and private entities to best use resources. We still have a long way to go, but our numbers are declining. For the past several months, I have been serving on a House Tax Reform Task Force. We have heard testimony from various experts (Department of Revenue, SC Association of CPA’s, Fair Tax representatives, etc.) and are continuing these hearings through the month of October. Our goal is to make meaningful change in the tax structure in South Carolina for businesses and individuals. Your input is invaluable to me, so if there is a state tax situation that you’d like me to be aware of, please share. Speaking of taxes, one group that watch-dogs legislation is the SC Policy Council. They released their “BEST & WORST” list (http:// w w w. s c p ol ic ycou nc i l . com / p d f / bestworst2011.pdf ) of 2011 filed bills from the SC House and Senate. I am proud to report that two of my bills made their “BEST” list and will work to see these bills moved through the legislative process. • [Best] Prohibiting Fee/Fine Increases — H 3051: Passed House; referred to Senate Finance Committee. One reason government spending rises every year is because state agencies can administratively create and increase fines and fees. This bill would prohibit that practice, requiring instead that the General Assembly introduce fee/fine increases as a joint resolution subject to a recorded roll call vote. • [Best] Reducing Sales Taxes and Eliminating Exemptions — H 4271: Referred to House Way & Means Committee. This bill would eliminate dozens of state sales tax

Rep. Shannon S. Erickson, R-Beaufort, represents SC House District 124. She can be reached at 843-263-1867.

exemptions, ranging from exemptions on newspapers to exemptions on wrapping paper. Exemptions on groceries, prescription medicine, durable medical equipment, and utility bills would remain in place. In return, H 4271 would reduce the general sales tax rate from 6 percent to 3.85 percent and the state accommodations tax from 7.0 percent to 4.5 percent. Based on previous analysis of a similar plan promoted by the Taxation Realignment Commission, the bill would likely result in increased tax revenue, suggesting the sales tax rate could be reduced by even more. I am thankful to the Policy Council for shedding light on the legislative process and applaud their efforts in watch-dogging bills filed by both bodies. Additionally on October 11, Governor Nikki Haley will be holding a Town Hall for the Lowcountry region at Bluffton High School (12 H.E. McCracken Circle) at 6:30 p.m. and I hope you will join me in attending. I will attend a “Women in Government” convention in Charleston in mid-October which will host women legislators from around the U.S. I look forward to sharing information with them about our great state and hearing their state’s strengths and weaknesses. In a recent USA Today, there is an article that showcases retirement systems and actually uses a component of the S.C. code as an example. I got many inquiries on this and did some digging. Yes, the article is correct and my research shows me that the issues cited happened in 2002 when a bill (not related to retirement) went through the House and Senate and a conference committee (three members of each body) and could not be agreed on. The House voted to allow that committee “free conference powers”

which means the committee could add or delete anything that got them to an agreement on the bill. Quite frankly, that practice is dangerous and this is a perfect example of why. The retirement “addition” was put in during that process. What changed was that retirement could be drawn at age 70 and after 30 years of service — it turned into drawn at age 70 and/or after 30 years of service. This change was done basically with only a handful of people being aware of it. The House & Senate have committees studying the retirement system as a whole already and I have requested that this issue be added to their study. I am prepared to work to see this component removed. As always, I enjoy being part of the Beaufort community and the wealth of diversity in our area. I was honored to attend the USC-BEAUFORT College of the Arts & Environment unveiling this past week, and commend Chancellor Jane Upshaw and USC President Harris Pastides for their support of this endeavor. Many thanks to local leaders Mayor Billy Keyserling, former Lt. Governor Brantley Harvey, and attorney Colden Battey for spearheading this effort. I was honored to serve on the committee and look forward to having our historic campus become vibrant once again. Before that unveiling, Chancellor Upshaw advised me that efforts to change the name of our university are still ongoing. USC-BEAUFORT administration has signed a contract to spend $85,000 to do “market research” on the name change and public perception of USC-BEAUFORT. The funds are “private” dollars but at a time when ANY funding is difficult to come by, I maintain that spending any dollars on re-branding are irresponsible and unnecessary. In case you missed it, several months ago, the university touted “USC – Sea Islands” to replace USC-BEAUFORT. I did not agree then and I will not agree now to change our historically based name. To tell President Pastides and Dr. Upshaw that you want to keep our name and that no funds should be expended on re-branding, email or

Survivor continued from page 1

Colleen continued in her daily life going to work even with the beginning of her chemotherapy, until the day came that the weight of it all hit her. She called into work crying and her boss assured her saying, “Well it’s about time.” The repressed hardships of her childhood began to surface for the first time. She became angry. But, this same day Colleen’s attitude towards cancer transformed into an unwavering strength and inspirational positive attitude, thanks to Paula Deen. “I remember I turned on the TV to get my mind off of it all and Paula Deen was on. She was in her pajamas making breakfast in bed with her husband. I got up and I think I made an apple coffee cake, I can’t quite remember, but


NOVEMBER 4, 5 pm – 9 pm NOVEMBER 5, 8 am – 2 pm



Colleen has made a new goal each year: first to learn how to swim, then to study nutrition and get back in shape, and now to walk. Why was cancer one of the best things that ever happened to her? “I understood what it meant to be alive,” she said. it reminded me of my childhood. That’s when I realized that my roots were in cooking and giving, and I wasn’t going to feel bad for myself anymore.” Colleen’s positivity blossomed like the hodgepodge array of beautiful flowers and herbs that she planted all around her house. She made a game out of her collection of wigs that won her grandchildren over so that they wouldn’t be afraid for grandma. And she’s made a new goal each year: first to learn how to swim, then to study nutrition and get back in shape, and now to walk. Why was cancer one of the best things that ever happened to Colleen? “I understood what it meant to be alive,” she said. Colleen’s rallying supporters were her husband, Rhett, her daughter, Tara, and her brother, Caroll. And she deems her three angels to be Dr. Thompson, Dr. Burris and Dr. Newberry. Little did she know at the time, every church in Beaufort was also praying for Colleen. For those who have someone close to our hearts battling cancer, Colleen encourages to show our love and support, but to also give that person some space when they need it. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are trying treatments that drain every last bit of a person’s energy. Colleen said it took her up to a year to retrieve her strength to walk a mile; but now a five-year survivor, she walked 10 miles in the LoCo Motion

Walk and hopes to walk another 20 miles for a marathon in Savannah. October is the month of breast cancer awareness and there are many ways to donate to cancer research institutes as well as to the individuals who are battling outrageous medical bills on top of cancer. Tara, Colleen’s daughter, organized the Pink Night Out at Charles & Company Gala this Friday, October 7, from 5:30-8 p.m. Charles & Company is located on 1613 North Street, one block away from the old courthouse (843-521-1919). There will be door prizes, a wine tasting, catered food (by Colleen Christensen) and a gift auction. You can sport the cause with a strand of pink hair that stylists will be on location to put in, and this isn’t just for the ladies! The men at the Police Department are putting on a pink hair bet to raise money for the American Cancer Association. All proceeds go the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and also for a woman fighting breast cancer without insurance. For those who can’t make it to the gala, you can purchase a pink hair strand for $10 from Charles & Company all month long. the island news goes pink

All throughout our October issues, look for special breast cancer awareness events from advertisers, as well as more stories from survivors.

news weekend crime REPORTS GIVE ME YO GAS MONEY: A woman’s world is dog-eat-dog world. Let’s face it ladies, the mean girls are everywhere. Last Saturday, an adult female got into an altercation with two other females regarding gas money. With inclining gas prices, saving a dime on gas money can be just enough to tip a simmering pot (especially for a woman on her cycle). One of the females assaulted the woman, taking her cigarettes and $20. I mean, dang! THE DOLLAR GENERAL BANDIT: Is it one thief or a team? No one can be sure, but this bandit is slicker than ice ... and desperate. Quickly earning a name as the Dollar General Bandit, the culprit struck twice in one day last Saturday, October 1. All we know is that an unknown subject stole $20 worth of beer — or 20 cans of beer — and snuck right out the door! That same day the sly thief slipped into a woman’s purse and stole $1. Huh, but where else could he better spend that dollar than the Dollar General? “CHUGGIN’ SUZY”: Here she comes folks. We all know her — “Chuggin’ Suzy.” She loves to walk around drunk and, hey, let it be known! She came strutting her stuff last Sunday night somewhere around Charles Street and Port Republic with a mixed drink in her hand. When an officer stopped “Suzy,” who was obviously intoxicated, she guzzled that drink down just like the boys at home taught her. A classy “Suzan”: never leaves evidence, still has a problem. EXCUSE ME, OCIFFER: Some people measure their level of intoxication by asking themselves the following question: “Am I sober enough to talk to a cop right now?” If you’re smiling, acknowledging that you’ve done the same, please don’t, for this is a trick question! Even if you answered yes, it’s entirely possible that you are still too drunk to talk to a police officer. Take the example of the two drunk chums who received public drunkenness charges on Sunday, October 2: They walked right up to an officer working at a traffic collision and decided to interfere with the investigation. Compiled by Tess Malijenovsky. Crime Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Beaufort Police Department. Please contact the police with any insider information on these cases.


continued from page 1 As Baske and two Beaufort police officers pulled the man toward the dock, they noticed the boat moving, too, even as the strong current pushed the boat further from the dock. The man’s arm was tangled in a line still attached to the boat as it continued sinking. Realizing the man could drown or suffer major damage to his arm, Baske took heroic action, Beaufort Fire Chief Sammy Negron said. “Inspector Baske was wearing his protective equipment and had a rescue knife when he jumped into the water, swam out to the man and cut the rope

tethering him to the sinking boat,” Negron said. “Captain Robinson and our two police officers swiftly pulled the man to safety, and Inspector Baske swam against the tide back to the dock.” The Beaufort Marine Rescue Squadron removed the boat from the river, eliminating a waterway hazard. “The quick planning by Captain Scott Robinson and the heroic action of Inspector Stephen Baske helped bring two people back safely to their families from what could have been a tragic night on the water. Their work was supported by Beaufort County EMS, our Fire Department, the Beaufort Police Department, Beaufort Marine Rescue Squadron and the Department of Natural Resources,” Negron said.

Beaufort Theatre Company presents ‘Always ... Patsy Cline’ Patsy Cline fans who “Fall To Pieces” over her music, and even those not as familiar with the iconic singer, will be “Crazy” about “Always ... Patsy Cline,” opening October 7 at the University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts. The musical is based on a true story of the friendship between Patsy, played by Maggy Norden, who sang some of the most recognizable songs in American music history, and her devoted fans. After a successful off-Broadway run, “Always ... Patsy Cline” has been performed throughout the U.S. and the world, becoming one of this country’s most produced musicals. Gail Westerfield, who also directs the play, narrates as Louise Seger, a Texas housewife who meets her idol at a honky tonk in 1961, just two years before Patsy’s tragic death in a plane crash at age 30.


“Always ... Patsy Cline” will be performed October 7, 8, 14, 15 at 7:30 p.m. with one matinee on Sunday, October 9 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $15 for youth. Group rates are available. For tickets and additional information, call the box office, 843-521-4145, Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. The Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort.

Margaret Norden as Patsy Cline.

The show spotlights the songs that made Patsy made famous, as well as the personal story behind the songs. Norden sings 25 songs, from “I Fall to Pieces,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Sweet Dreams,” and “Crazy” to her

lesser-known recordings, all to the accompaniment of a live band. Not only does Norden look and sound remarkably similar to Patsy in the play, they had some interesting things in common in real life. “I learned in my research for the role that neither of us can read music or even know what key we sing in! Patsy started singing when

she was 4 years old and had no formal training, and I haven’t either. But I’ve always been a singer: My mother told me I was humming when I was just nine months old.” Though she doesn’t consider herself “a strict country music fan,” Norden said she has “always loved Patsy’s voice, and like Louise’s character says in the play, Patsy sang the way I’ve always wanted to sing.” Norden and Westerfield met when Norden was cast in Westerfield’s production of “Talking With ...” at ARTworks in 2010. They also appeared together in ARTworks’ production of “Steel Magnolias.” “You don’t have to be a country music fan to love Patsy,” Westerfield added. “Patsy’s voice and style were so unique and beautiful, and Maggy is just brilliant. I get goose bumps every time I hear her, and audiences will, too!”

Beaufort Symphony to open season Local concertgoers are in for a rare treat on October 13 and 16 when The Beaufort Symphony opens its 20112012 season with “A Twentieth Century Celebration.” Guest soloist Alexander Pershounin will offer the Koussevitsky Bass Concerto, accompanied by the orchestra. Dr. Alexander Pershounin is Associate Professor of Bass at Columbus State University in Georgia, where he is also director of jazz studies. He has performed throughout Europe Alexander and the United Pershounin States and has appeared with world class artists ranging from Itzhak Perlman and Yo Yo Ma to Ray Charles and Benny Golson. The bass is the largest member of the string family. It is shaped like a giant violin, and the instrument’s strings can be bowed or plucked while the player stands or sits on a high stool. The bass, usually found near the back of the orchestra, takes center stage for

this concerto, which was written by the young Serge Koussevitzsky, legendary Russian conductor of the Boston Symphony. Maestro Frederick Devyatkin has chosen Symphony #2 by the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius to round out “A Twentieth Century Celebration.” Sibelius (1865-1957) was known as an intensely nationalistic composer. He began plans for the Second symphony while visiting in Italy. It was first performed in Helsinki in 1902 with the composer conducting, and was instantly embraced by the Finns, who had a fierce longing for freedom from Tsarist Russia. He was particularly interested in the natural landscape of Finland, and his music evidenced strong ties to his beloved homeland. The Second Symphony established Sibelius as a major composer in the world of music. One hundred years later his compositions are often performed and his Second Symphony is considered the most popular of his seven symphonies. Among his other well- known works are the tone poems

for orchestra, ‘Finlandia’ and ‘The Swan of Tuonela’. Although extremely prolific in his early years, he composed very little during the last thirty years of his life. Maestro Devyatkin and the musicians of the Beaufort Symphony invite you to become a subscribing member of our audience this season. By doing so you ensure that your seat will be waiting for you, and together we will continue to “Keep the Music Live.” Musicians interested in performing with the Beaufort Symphony Orchestra are invited to contact Maestro Devyatkin at 912-232-7250 or Olive Warrenfeltz at 843-575-3813. Come see the symphony at USCB Performing Arts Center, 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort. Tickets are: Adults, $35, youth through high school, $5.

My telephone pole is bigger than yours By Pamela Brownstein 700 Bay Street • 843-379-3307

In 2006, I received a letter from SCE&G wanting to buy the utility easement in front of my house. As a new, twenty something homeowner, the dollar amount was large, I didn’t need to be asked twice. I planned to use it on a trip to Hawaii, but my parents wisely opened a savings account and reserved that money for house projects only (of which there were many). About five years went by and I figured I was in the clear: maybe they forgot about that telephone pole project? Not so fast. It’s hard to describe how monstrously large the new poles are. When you stand at the bottom and look up, it’s like staring at a rusty lighthouse. (I noticed the pole near the jail on Ribaut is nice and shiny, but the one in front of my house was already rust-color when they installed it. Hmm...) Fine, there’s a giant pole on the corner. I knew this day would come. At least they will replace the old poles and wires. Many, many months have gone by and this has not happened. I was told the phone and cable companies still use the old poles and have no incentive to move to the new ones. Inquiries to SCE&G

Pam’s P.O.V. and the city have passed the blame onto one another. Now there’s an old rotted wooden pole, a gigantic rusted pole, a big new pole for a street lamp that floods our house with fluorescent light, and two sets of wires crossing the view from my front porch. The property value of my house is sure to go up. If you haven’t seen these poles or think I am just ranting, let me assure you I am not alone in my concerns. A group of citizens, primarily from the WeRi (West of Ribaut) part of town, is taking action and meeting with leaders of the community and representatives from SCE&G looking for answers. If you would like to get involved, contact for details. With the development of the Rails to Trails bike paths and North Street as a main corridor, it would behoove everyone to improve the look of these poles. Some ideas I like include having local artists paint them or putting living fences around and planting vines to grow up the fences to mask the garishly large base of the pole. So yeah, I took the money. But I also paid the price.

Phaking it By Jack Sparacino

There’s a famous old expression that’s usually, though apparently falsely, attributed to legendary showman P.T. Barnum that “there’s a sucker born every minute.” (More likely it was uttered by Barnum’s rival, David Hannum.) The statement itself may or may not be true, but there are certainly lots of us who are fairly discerning and can recognize baloney when we see it. Some interesting examples of this come to mind. 1. Some of my favorites involve food commercials on TV where the actors are clearly fake eating the product (yogurt, cereal, etc.). You see the item on their spoon, the spoon going near their mouth, and then the actor “enjoying” a wonderful bite of air. Related to this are cafeteria scenes from medical shows where several doctors and nurses are seated at a table. Everyone has food on their plate (or maybe fake food). It’s fun to try to catch anyone actually putting a bite of it in their mouth, chewing and swallowing it. Now if they weren’t hungry in the first place, that’s fine, maybe they could simply hold cups of coffee, tea or soda or just wave the food around for emphasis. 2. Another favorite of mine happens frequently in movies. One of the stars is supposed to be a musician. Often he or she portrays a pianist. Notice how often

we “hear” them, or someone, playing but we never see their hands and certainly not their hands and face at the same time. When we do see someone’s hands, the motions bear no resemblance to the sequence of notes and chords. Even more amusing are “clarinetists” who look like they never before held such an instrument in their lives and who pathetically wiggle their fingers in desperation (I can say that after having played the clarinet for many years, but it is pretty blatant). And, of course, how many times have we been asked to absolutely suspend reality long enough to watch someone move their lips to someone else’s singing? When Jeff Bridges did his own singing in “Crazy Heart” we got a real treat. And he won an academy award for best actor! 3. And don’t get me started on the world of “faux.” Fake brick, butter, cheese, fruit, fur, leather, snow, gems, you name it. Even fake TV news shows! Not to mention knockoffs or counterfeit merchandise like watches, clothing and pharmaceuticals. One wonders if and when it ever ends, or was Barnum/ Hannum really right? So why does any of this matter? As one of my former bosses might have said, “hey, it’s show business!” Well, it matters for several reasons. For one thing, widespread fakery helps to create a culture where illusion is marketed as

reality. The problem is, the line between fakery and reality gets blurred for some. Before long, people may wind up doubting much of what they hear or see, turning unnecessarily skeptical, even when it IS the real deal. Something like the boy who cried wolf on a larger scale. For another thing, most of us like to be entertained by magic tricks and enjoy the experience. Other kinds of tricks? Not so much. And no one really likes to be manipulated to someone else’s advantage. Now in the spirit of giving equal time, some fakes are actually a good thing. False teeth as opposed to no teeth. Fake violence in movies as opposed to the real thing. A good head fake in basketball. Not to mention scientific simulations, artificial hearts and limbs, and one of my personal favorites, artificial fishing lures. And how about fake Santas! So maybe Sir Walter Scott had it right when he wrote, “oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” It’s good to know where the lines are drawn and why. So wouldn’t we all benefit just a little from a master directory of what’s fake and what’s not? A guide that distinguishes fake and bake from shake and bake? Hey, how about a phone app! I’d hate to disappoint Sir Walter by not heeding his warning. Or Mr. Barnum. Er, Hannum.

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

Whale Branch High gaining positive momentum Beaufort County School District officials said that an innovative academic approach at Whale Branch Early College High School has students more engaged and more likely to pursue additional studies after graduating. A key element is a partnership with the Technical College of the Lowcountry that offers Whale Branch students the opportunity to earn both a high school diploma and up to two years of college credit simultaneously — and at no cost to students. “We anticipated that this approach

would show positive results,” Superintendent Valerie Truesdale told the Beaufort County Board of Education tonight. “What we didn’t anticipate was that those positive results would happen so quickly.” Sean Alford, Director of Instructional Services for the district, told board members that when Whale Branch High opened in fall 2010, 13 students qualified to take two or more college-level courses through the school’s partnership with TCL. That number has climbed rapidly since then, and when the school began its

second year of operation last month, 76 students qualified. Through summer 2011, Alford said, Whale Branch students had attempted 646 credit hours of college-level work and successfully completed 510 credit hours – nearly an 80 percent passing rate. And this fall, more than 40 percent of the school’s 76 qualifying students are currently enrolled in three or more college-level courses. Some college-level courses are offered on site at the high school, and students also have the option of taking courses

at the TCL campus. Among the most popular college courses this semester are Intro to College Algebra, College Algebra, Western Civilization, English Composition I and Introduction to Computers. Passing college courses while still in high school qualifies students not only to graduate from high school, but also to graduate from the technical college with an Associate’s Degree. That represents a two-year head-start as they begin work toward a Bachelor’s degree at a university or college or enter the workforce.

Three schools win federal grant Firefighters link up with LIES A competitive three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Defense awarded $518,000 to three Beaufort elementary schools: Broad River, Coosa and Shell Point. The schools are chosen based on their high percentages of military families. One in four students at Broad River and Coosa elementary schools and one in five students at Shell Point Elementary come from military families connected to service at the Marine Corps Air Station, Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot or the Beaufort Naval Hospital. The Department of Defense (DOD) “Joint Strike” grant has two main goals: to enhance teacher knowledge in mathematics and to go above and beyond the traditional school day education in the subjects of

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Teachers will work with students oneon-one and in small group settings after school and during summer recess to increase students’ understanding of math, science and literacy. The DOD grant will also fund animation software and robotic kits to engage students in hands-on learning. “We’re very excited to add three additional schools to our growing robotics and animation program in Beaufort County,” said Superintendent Valerie Truesdale. “This brings us to a total of seven schools with grants to expand hands-on learning in math, science and literacy.” In addition, the grant funds the tuition and book costs for teachers to take graduatelevel courses.

“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six.” ~Maria Montessori

The firefighters of Lady’s Island/St. Helena Fire Department works hard serving their community in anyway they can; they serve the educational facilities within the community as role models and friends to student. The fire department keeps a visible presence in schools like Lady’s Island Elementary with fire safety lessons and participation in the school’s annual Career Fair. Yet this year they take that service up one more notch through a partnership with Lady’s Island Elementary School. The fire department will increase their presence even more this year. Firefighters will come monthly to eat lunches with kids. They will also come once at the end of each quarter to play a game of kickball against a team of students who will earn playing rights through good behavior and hard work. Fourth grade teacher Kristi Black says, “I think it’s wonderful when communities partner with schools. The kids are so excited about the kickball game.” Guidance counselor Patience Russell-Gordon is also excited about the partnership: “Kids thrive under adult attention. It means a lot to them that these adults want to take time out of their day to come spend time with them.”

From fishing to football, the hard work of athletes of all ages deserves recognition

Discovering, fostering an innate love of horses By Melanie McCaffree

Although my mother will tell you it began long before, I was five years old when I discovered my innate love for horses. All I wanted to do was eat, sleep and breath horses. Fortunately, I grew up on a beautiful, albeit modest horse farm on the blue grass of Kentucky. To this day I can tell you the names of all the ponies that have come in and out of my life. Frisky, the name of my first pony, came by her name honestly and ultimately led to her quick departure from our farm. Next was Rusty the “Super Pony,” he too earned his title as he did everything anyone asked. I longingly remember the days when my brother and I would harness him to a cart and drive all over the farm, often stopping for a picnic. We hung all over Rusty, sometimes three or four of us at a time. He was usually a good sport but when he had had enough he reminded us of his one vice. Once he spotted the pond, saddled and all he would take off with me pulling, turning, begging him to halt but to no avail. He traveled on, soaking me, the bridle and saddle — PONIES! It wasn’t until my adult life that I truly realized the gift I was given by growing up on a farm. Although I am no longer galloping across the fields of Kentucky at sunrise in my white cotton nightgown, I feel blessed

The take over, make-me-over Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest, hottest and sexiest of them all? If while staring at your mirror, asking this question, you get nothing but dead silence and the woman in the mirror is staring back at you with wideeyed confusion, it could be time for a makeover. With the fall season knocking at our door, beckoning for us to answer, what better time to update, throw out the old, bring in the new and jazz up your image.

Takiya Smith, Beautique Lash & Brow. Master Lash & Brow Stylist, CPCP www.blb-boutiques. com

Head to toe, image certainly isn’t just anything, yet amazingly, it literally

can mean almost everything. A short, classic, neck grazing bob paired with a pristine and polished set of well manicured nails speaks class and a sense of elegance. Whereas, a tight, French chignon, combined with this season’s hottest hues in a handbag plus a daring pair of knee-high boots reveals a risktaking fashionista all her own. A makeover has no boundaries and options are limitless when total consideration is given in full perspective.

Hair can be cut, extensions can be added and color can be explored. Make-up can change, looks can be created and advice can be given. Clothing and shoes can be altered, mixed and matched and shopping is just down- right fun. No matter your style, flow, vibe or taste, we all can agree that a “new you” always seems to bring out the better in the best of you. The walk is a little taller, the talk is full of confidence and the look is positively empowering.

When it comes to giving birth, women have choices By Ifetayo White

I am grateful that the name of my business, CHOICES Birthing and Wellness Support, is a daily reminder for me of the gift of choice in my life. One of my most powerful memories is how a choice to learn and try something different changed my life and the lives of my children in ways unimaginable. In 1970 right after the birth of my first daughter, I was dismayed to realize that I was clueless how to raise the curious, creative, intelligent and compassionate human being that I wished my child to grow into. Soon after expressing my desire to know a different way of raising children, I met my neighbor who just happened to be a specialist in early childhood development and education. Wow, did she not rock my world! My life and the growth of my baby fully bloomed as a result of the fundamentals of child development she taught and the choices for parenting that she offered me. The choice to seek and to learn a different way at this critical and vulnerable time in my life has empowered me to live by and to teach the wisdom of complementary and wholistic wellness and birthing support tools. I had my first asthma attack and had my first shot of adrenaline and received my first inhaler at the age of 30 in

Ifetayo White is a certified doula (to Labor/ALACE), Reiki Master Teacher and welllife coach. She is the founder of CHOICES Birthing and Wellness Support (www. and The Lowcountry School of Reiki and Energy Healing Wisdom on Lady’s Island. Ifetayo can be contacted at 843-271-1923,

1975. The attending physician assured me that adult-onset asthma is usually a result of stress. Again, I had no idea what to do about the amount of stress that I had created in myself that had resulted in an inability to breathe. My tried and true stress relievers at that time had been smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, numbing my emotional pain by overdrinking, “fixing” everyone else, making an even more “perfect” home, family and body. You get the picture. So in 1981 when a high school friend who had been practicing meditation for some years suggested meditation to me for the umpteenth time in 10 years, I finally heard her say that there was a way to reduce my stress that I had not accepted. Once again my life was changed forever by the choice to investigate something different. Beginning a daily meditation practice opened to me a world of people who were wise in ways of wellness and health and spirituality that was unconceivable. I can wholeheartedly share my true conviction that the choices that we make everyday — large and small — determine the quality of our lives.

It is my passion to teach and share wholistic and complementary choices in birthing, raising children, taking care of ourselves and others. So many times in speaking with pregnant mothers in Beaufort, I am amazed at the lack of information about the choices for birth available to them. Today, in our community, birthing moms and their families are being offered many more choices for safe and person-centered prenatal, labor and postpartum experiences. Out-of-hospital prenatal and birth education/preparation classes are available in our community and taught by qualified women with many years of experience. There are prenatal and other yoga classes in town that support expectant moms and there are a number of massage therapists and other bodywork practitioners who work with pregnant mamas. We have a hypnotherapist who will provide individual hypno-birthing preparation with expectant mothers in order to reduce the anxiety of childbirth, which contributes to a reduction of pain during labor. Two OBGYN practices and Beaufort

Jasper Comprehensive Health all employ the services of CNMs or Nurse Midwives who can support hospital births and often can provide the support needed for non-medicated births. With thoughtful choice of birthing primary care, a pregnant mother can experience a birth with a minimum of medical interventions and can have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) at Beaufort Memorial Hospital. Yes, it is possible to have a home birth and even a water birth in Beaufort! A licensed community midwife moved to our community this Spring who has many years of experience with home births. She is also licensed to provide home prenatal visits. Although the choice of birthing at a free-standing birthing center is not yet available in the Beaufort area, many mothers choose to give birth with the Nurse Midwives at the Birth Center in Savannah which provides the comfort of a homelike environment with a minimum of medical interventions. Prenatal, labor and postpartum support is provided in our community by a number of certified doulas. The role of the doula is to provide consistent emotional and physical support to the mom before, during and after childbirth. Never forget that everyday you have the power to choose — in birth and in life.

Survey: Couples rarely talk about life insurance By State Farm® Agent A recent State Farm survey shows many people understand the need for life insurance is important but acknowledge the conversation with their spouse might be uncomfortable. Seventy-four percent of couples say they rarely or never discuss the topic. This is particularly true in households with one wage earner. With women increasingly filling the role of primary breadwinner, financial and emotional stressors weigh heavily on their decision to discuss life insurance at home, and research finds that among couples unlikely to discuss the topic, women are even more likely

to remain silent. The state of the economy influenced the responders. The survey found that more than half of Americans are now focused solely on protecting what they have versus working to achieve their financial goals. Having the income to cover basic household needs (mortgage, rent, utilities and food) must come first. An earlier study from the research firm LIMRA found that nearly one third of U.S. households currently have no life insurance, the highest level in more than 40 years. For couples who struggle with discussing finances and life insurance,

The survey found that more than half of Americans are now focused on protecting what they have versus working to achieve their financial goals. here are a few suggestions: Make A Plan. It can be empowering for couples to agree on goals and steps toward achieving a more secure future. For couples experiencing severe economic setbacks, it can be reassuring to have a strategy in place to get back on their feet financially and to prepare for the

unexpected. Start Small. Often couples may feel the gap is too great between what they have to work with financially today versus what they would like to have in the future. But starting with small steps - such as getting educated about life insurance basics - can set the stage for follow-up steps later. Consult an expert. Bringing in a knowledgeable outside perspective can make the process of discussing life insurance easier and less stressful. These experts have experience guiding the conversation and answering questions. This can help avoid misunderstandings and unneeded stress.

The Thomas Heyward, Jr. Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution took the opportunity to combine the 300th Anniversary of the founding of the City of Beaufort and the start of Constitution Week to honor the chapter’s namesake with a wreath laying at the statue of Thomas Heyward, Jr. at Waterfront Park on September 15. Regent Nancy Crowther (pictured, at right) and Anne Heyward (pictured, at left), chapter Historian and a direct descendent of Mr. Heyward, read a celebratory Proclamation from Beaufort’s Mayor. Most well known as a signer of the Declaration of Independence, Heyward also signed the Articles of Confederation, served as a judge and commanded a militia against the British in the Revolutionary War until taken prisoner by the British. “He was one who risked life, liberty and property in pursuit of the creation of the United States of America, and we are proud to honor him this day”, said Mrs. Crowther at the ceremony. At the September meeting of the Thomas Heyward, Jr. Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter Chaplain Anne Kennedy swore in two new officers for the upcoming year. Charlene Shufelt is the newly elected Vice Regent and Eliza Oliwa is the Recording Secretary. The ceremony took place at the Community Center at the Islands of Beaufort and was followed by a tea honoring the new officers. DAR is an organization that celebrates the founding of the United

B.Cunningham (4x5.25):Layout 1

States of America and recognizes the contributions of those who fought in or provided substantial support for those who fought the British for our freedom. For more information about the chapter, please contact Regent Nancy Crowther at 524-0134. Also at a recent meeting of the Thomas Heyward, Jr. Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Julie Good, the new Executive Director of Historic Beaufort Foundation, spoke to the group about the foundation, its mission and the many projects and events scheduled for the upcoming year. Many of the members of DAR are also members of HBF and recognize the value of the foundation to the city of Beaufort. After her talk, Charlene Shufelt, Chapter Vice Regent, presented a check to Ms. Good as a donation from the DAR to the foundation, and the meeting adjourned to allow the members to get a chance to get to visit with the new executive director over tea and refreshments.

Memories of summers at the Sea Island Hotel By R. Ray Kearns

The Sea Island Hotel was my summer playground as a child. My grandfather, Normadus M. Polk, known to us as Papa, was the proprietor of the Bay Street hotel from 1924 to 1947. The three story structure with wide covered porches bustled with activity every day. Not only was it filled with guests, but locals used it as a meeting place to pass the time of day. There were cooks, maids and even family members who worked there, but one person I remember in particular was an old black man who we all called Uncle Alfred. Uncle Alfred was the porter who greeted the guests as they parked their cars under one of the old tin sheds lined up behind the hotel. He’d carry their bags to their room then head back downstairs to his shoe shine stand in the registration area where guests would pay him a nickel to shine their shoes. Every morning he’d start in the parlor then make his way up to each floor ringing a large bell and calling out, “All is for breckus,” which meant it was time to eat.

Beaufort Then & Now This moment in Beaufort’s history is an excerpt from the book “Beaufort ... Then and Now,” an anthology of memories compiled by Holly Kearns Lambert. Copies of this book may be purchased at Beaufort Book Store. For information or to contribute your memory, contact Holly at or

There was a family dining table and we could sit down at any time of day and order whatever we wanted off the menu. A player piano in the parlor set the tone as old-timers gathered in the afternoon to visit or play Set Back at the corner card table. While the adults were being entertained, my cousins and I would run up to the third floor porch and climb onto the drainpipe, then slide all the way down to the ground. Sometimes we would climb onto the roof of a tin shed and eat the neighbor’s figs whose fig tree limbs stretched over the property line. Other times we’d race to the backyard where we’d play on top of the coal

pile. Many a day, Mama, our grandmother, Mary Youmans Polk, would drag our coal dusted bodies into the nearest bath to clean us up before dinner. When the weather was warm and the tide was high, we would swim off the McLeod’s dock which was located in front of the courthouse. The tide would take us down to another dock and we’d run back up the river bank and start all over again. Back in those days, boys’ bathing suits had a top. It resembled a tank top and if we got caught not wearing one, the local policemen would send us home to get it or we couldn’t swim anymore. Many afternoons we would sit on the porch and watch the sailboat races in the

Beaufort River. There were two porch swings on either end of the porch, but the one on the right was always occupied by Papa. If he wasn’t already there, we didn’t hesitate to jump up when he did come out on the porch; we all knew that was his spot. But we didn’t mind because that’s when he would give us our sweet treat. Papa walked downtown every day. He’d stop by the People’s Bank, and then stop to buy us candy. He’d make sure the corner of the bag always stuck out of his coat pocket just to tease us. He’d give one of us a piece, but tell us not to tell anybody. Of course, we would immediately go straight to the rest of the kids and eat it in front of them. It didn’t take long for the others to bombard Papa for their share. I looked forward to my summers in Beaufort. The small town lifestyle where everyone knew each other, where you were surrounded by family and friends was exactly what I wanted for my own family. So after I married and graduated college, I came back and settled down in the one place I always called home, Beaufort.

Pump it up to a 10! Look fit and fashionable By Laura Trask

Well, summer is officially over. Some of us drank too much, ate too much and forgot all about our diets on our summer vacations. But now fall is here and with fall comes a return to routines: school, soccer games, sporting events, and the best part — oyster roasts. But, as we all know, staying in shape is very important to us here in the Lowcountry so we can’t afford to forget one of our most important routines: working out to stay fit and look our best. Time to tighten it all up! Let’s have some fun and look at how fashion of the past has played a role in our exercise wear and is still doing so today. I don’t know about you, but I enjoy my workouts so much more when I like what I am wearing. What’s the crime in looking good while we are driving up our heart rates? Looking and feeling good is the whole point of putting our bodies through all the honing and toning and what better and more accommodating way to show off all our hard work than being able to sport chic athletic wear that is smart enough to flatter our bodies and forgiving enough to camouflage what we don’t want seen. Of course, comfort and functionality play a vital role in these garments. Besides, this generation spends so much time in workout gear (often hours past the end of the workout

laura’s fashion file and sometimes past the point of good hygiene!) So, if we add a little fashion to something that can be a bit of chore at times won’t that add an element of pleasure to our routines? Back in the 1960s, posing in sports clothes had begun to break into the mainstream starting with the track suit. Bottoms were matched to the anorak tops athletes wore and the phenomenon was born. By the late 70s, fashion and sportswear were merging. In the 80s, so many people had gotten into the fitness frenzy that exercise clothing and their accessories grew into the $35 billion-ayear industry that it is today. The last decade has seen a trend toward a higher quality fabric and design in this ever growing business. I personally have found it fun to watch these trends unfold. In my hometown of Atlanta, there is a cutting edge entrepreneur by the name of Jim Whitlow. Jim, having been in the high fashion world for decades, wanted to help busy women be able to take “the same look from the gym to carpool to happy hour.” To that end he, opened Deka (which in Greek means 10) in 2007, where he now sells

Above: Laura Trask with Jim Whitlow, owner of Deka. Right: A top by Stella McCartney for Adidas.

fashion forward highend athletic apparel. The workout crazed women of Atlanta have been pouring in ever since! Deka carries all the most interesting designers in this unique category of performance and fashion, including Stella McCartney (daughter of Sir Paul McCartney) who has had a serious career in fashion as the head of many major design houses and was hired by Adidas in 2004 to create something new

for those who wanted more out of their workout clothing. This collaboration was so successful it is credited with bringing this trend of fashion and fitness into the limelight. Stella for Adidas is probably the most popular line Deka carries. In fact, Deka is the No. 1 retailer of Stella for Adidas. Others sporting wear lines include Y-3, Hard Tail, Splits 59, Zoot, Rebel Yell, Beyond Yoga, to name a few. These designers take their work as seriously as any mainstream clothing designer, and it shows in the final product. So, if you want to get your closet in shape and simplify your life by getting a few pieces that go from preto post-workout, check out Deka and all they have to offer. There is also an entire store front devoted to last season’s inventory all of it’s on sale and all looks as fabulous as this season’s. Good to know there’s a way to feel like a perfect “10” and pump some new life and new looks into our workouts! Check out Deka when you’re in Atlanta at 3400 Around Lenox Road NE #102, or visit

A spotlight on fabulous local restaurants, expert wine advice and a dining guide

Lunch Bunch fills up on fast and fabulous subs at


By Pamela Brownstein

With funny, catchy phrases like “Subs So Fast You’ll Freak” and “Your mom wants you to eat at Jimmy John’s” adorning the walls inside and out, it’s hard to ignore the allure of this new restaurant in town. But the eatery — located in Beaufort Town Center, 2015 Boundary St., where Rita’s Italian Ice used to be — is more than just hype and the delicious food speaks for itself. Beloved on college campuses and in towns all over, including Savannah and Charleston, Jimmy John’s World’s Greatest Gourmet Sandwiches opened in Beaufort just last month. We had a full Lunch Bunch crew with Kim, Elizabeth, Nancy, Buck, April, Heather and me. Kim ordered the J.J.B.L.T. She loved her bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo on wheat, and it lived up to its description: The only better BLT is mama’s BLT. Elizabeth tried the #15 Club Tuna that comes with fresh, housemade tuna, mixed with celery, onions, and special sauce, as well as provolone, sprouts, cucumbers, lettuce and tomato. I have no idea how she can finish her sub, chips and drink, and manage to stay so skinny, but she liked it all because there was nothing left. April and Heather both got the #12 Beach Club loaded with turkey, provolone cheese, avocado spread, cucumber, sprouts, lettuce, tomato and mayo. April had hers on the seven-grain wheat bread, and both women thought their sandwiches were great. The #9 Italian Night Club must appeal to those in sales because Nancy and Buck both ordered it. The giant sub comes with genoa salami, Italian capicola, ham, provolone cheese and is topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and Italian vinaigrette. Buck said he usually doesn’t choose Italian subs, but he ate it all.

I had my usual, the #11 Country Club made with turkey breast, applewood smoked ham, provolone cheese, and tons of lettuce, tomato and mayo. The menu lists this disclaimer: A very traditional, yet always exceptional classic. That’s just how I like it — a classic turkey sub that is awesome every time. One reason why the subs are so good is because all the bread is baked fresh in the restaurant. If some of the french rolls are left over after four hours, the rolls are then available for sale for only 50 cents. Owner James Pinckney and his wife, JoElla, are excited about their new franchise. James was born and raised in

Beaufort and is enjoying coming back to his roots after working for Microsoft for many years. He said they have seen a packed lunch crowd so far and stay busy on the weekends, especially with military families in town. His must-have? The barbecue-flavored Jimmy Chips. With a packed menu — don’t let it intimidate you! — as well as a variety of chips and yummy cookies, lunch (or dinner) at Jimmy John’s is a must-try. The restaurant delivers seven days a week within a two-mile radius. They also provide catering. Call 843-3793009 or visit

Please tell me you do remember that tasting a group of wines with them all in brown bags can be a good thing. Yes, you do remember? Good! So, today I want to tell you about a brown bag tasting with my monthly group on Hilton Head. We like to do brown bag tastings because most of us either go to or do tastings every week. With that much practice, when we get together, no matter what the set of wines is, we each know at least one of them. The whole point to the brown bags is that we can’t see which wine is which and make ourselves like one better or not at all just because we’ve tasted it before. When you want to plan a brown bag tasting, it’s usually to see which wine in a specific set of wines you like best. That means there is usually some base-line or category that you’ve come up with. Ours today is cabernets, all $20 retail. You can try, depending on the category, to make it more defined — like ours could be all California, all the same vintage, stuff like that. For our own enjoyment, when I put our brown bags tastings together, I like to include one wine that’s not quite in the guidelines so that we get, hopefully, at least one surprise. That way, we are all able with very little resistance to spread our drinking wings and like something unexpected. Now, the brown bags are lined up and the tasting has started. One glass per person and the bags are just numbered so they can keep track of which one they’re on. After we’ve all tasted all of them, we’ll rip off the bags and taste a bit more of our favorites. Here are descriptions of the five cabernets we tasted:








and Petit Sirah. Smooth and mellow, I got the feeling all of us liked this one. Finally, cabernet number five. This one was Twenty Bench from Napa. And, just like several of the others we tasted, this one is made by a bigger, better known, more expensive Napa winery — Regusci. Regusci is also from the Stag’s Leap District and even this “second label” wine from them is phenomenal. Actually, now that I’ve used the term “second label,” I realize that many of these wines today were, if not strictly speaking “second labels,” they were close to it. So, there’s another lesson for us: whatever you call them, “second label,” stepchildren, side labels, this is a great way to find good wines at good prices! Just so you know, some of us liked this one best because it was a combination of fruity, structure and a bit earthy. Really it was a slightly different style than the others and, sometimes, one that is a bit different in a line of five gets more positive comments because it stands out more And, now we’re mostly done. Everyone had blind tasted each of the five wines and made their notes on them. Next step, we rip off the bags and write down the names with the appropriate notes. Then, we all go back and retaste — our favorites, the ones we thought we knew and didn’t recognize by taste only, ones we weren’t sure of, etc, etc, etc. And, you can be sure, all five bottles got emptied. This tasting we did not take a vote for “best,” but I do have rankings from some of the tasters and my own too. After you read this, we can talk. Then you can do your own sipping, notes, ranking, whatever. Enjoy!

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

Minding your pees and cues Hoot Marie, a 3-year-old cairn terrier, is a good companion, great with the kids and is darned cute. But she has a dark secret. She is not housetrained. Hoot is clueless as to when or where she’s supposed to Go. Left to her own initiative she will leave “gifts” atop the laundry, on the bathmat and has even soaked her owner’s purse. The reason for her unfortunate social faux pas can be traced to her early years in a badly managed breeding kennel. During her early months she was not formally housetrained and was forced to use her living space for, ahem!, her business, a practice all dogs find abhorrent. Unfortunately, by the time Hoot was adopted, this behavior was set in stone. Improper elimination practices can be attributed to other reasons, too. A dog with a medical issue or infection or even certain medications will contribute to house soiling. Sometimes a dog is asked to “hold it” for too long with unfortunate results. Puppies or the elderly often have trouble holding it all day. And sometimes the dog simply doesn’t understand the rules of the house. To be fully house trained, Hoot needs to know where she should Go as well as where she should not. She must to learn how to “hold it” until she is in an appropriate place. She must know how to communicate her needs to her human in a way that the human will understand. And she must know that this behavior applies to all locations. For instance, it is still not OK to pee on Grandma’s oriental carpet. Supervise your dog when she is inside (except when crated or otherwise confined). Supervise means remaining focused on what your dog is doing at all times so as to prevent any opportunity for the dog to make a mistake. The easiest way to

Most important, when accidents happen, don’t punish. It’s acceptable to interrupt midstream with a clap or other noise and then rush the dog outside. But punishment will only retard your progress by making your dog afraid to go in front of you. do this is to “wear” your dog by clipping her leash to your belt loop. The lead should be long enough for her to move around, sit or lay at your feet, but short enough to prevent her from creating a mess without your knowledge. Confine your dog if you cannot keep an eye on her. Because dogs find it repulsive to soil where they sleep, a properlysized crate is a perfect place for your dog to bide her time. Create a routine. What goes in on schedule comes out on schedule. Establish regular waking, feeding, walking and sleeping times. Take her out upon awakening, after eating and drinking, before leaving home, when you first arrive home and before bedtime. Show her where to go. This is an important but often overlooked step. Pick a spot in the yard where it will be convenient for you and take her there. When she Goes in the chosen spot, praise her lavishly, give her a treat and then go back inside. With repetition she will automatically head for “her” spot every time. IF you pair a suggestion phrase “Hurry

up!” or Go potty!” with the elimination moment, she will come to potty on cue. Assigning her to a section of the yard also facilitates clean up by confining this somewhat unpleasant task to a smaller area. Read her signals. Most dogs will not head for the door when nature calls. However, they may pace, circle, pant, stare at you or just smile anxiously. Also, try to anticipate: does she need to outside when company comes? after a game of fetch? And, the most important: when accidents happen, don’t punish! It’s perfectly acceptable to interrupt midstream with a clap or other noise and then rush her outside. But, when you find a “mistake”, do not punish. Simply clean thoroughly with an enzyme neutralizing cleaner. Punishment will only retard your progress by making your dog afraid to Go in front of you. You’ll be able to create a new routine in a couple of weeks. But it may take a few months for your dog to perform reliably, especially if she has been messing in the house for years. The success of this training depends on you.
