The fundraiser is brought to you by Get Fit and will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of the Lowcountry. Jered Kraszewski, President of Get Fit and creator of the FIT FUND explains the 7 fundamentals and acronym of the FIT FUND, “It’s based on Fitness, Integrity, Tolerance, Focus, Unity, Nutrition and Determination.” The FIT FUNDwas established to raise awareness of uth childhood obesity and create a scholarship for area youth currently attending the Boys and Girls Club of the Lowcountry. All proceeds will support the implementation of the FIT FUND in cooperation with the Boys and Girls Club of the Lowcountry. Their funding has been drastically cut nationwide; and recently, their program on Lady’s Island closed,” says Kraszewski. “I established the FIT FUND, because every child deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, productive, and

These children don’t choose to be born into poverty; the FIT FUND can break the cycle.” Childhood obesity has tripled since 1980; and in children ages 6-18, one child in five is obese. The numbers are higher in low-income communities. The US spends $225 Billion annually in obesity-related costs. “Countries that have implemented subsidized fitness SHINDIG continued on page 5

88-Year Old Respected Female Legislator Takes Stand Harriet Keyserling urges women to vote for “Agenda over Gender” and support Sheheen Dismayed by Nikki Haley’s lackluster performance in the S.C. House of Representatives, one of South Carolina’s early female legislators,eighty-eightyear-old Harriet Keyserling, is blogging in support of Vincent Sheheen for S.C. Governor in 2010. E i g ht y - e i g ht - ye a r- ol d Ha r r i e t Keyserling was the first woman from Beaufort to be elected to the South Carolina State Legislature, serving in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1977 to 1993. When Nikki Haley was running for the S.C. House of Representatives six years ago, Keyserling was part of a committee that was backing her. Now dismayed by Haley’s voting record in the S.C. House, Keyserling-known for her political support of education and environmental issues--has teamed with Madeleine McGee, a member of Sullivan’s Island Town Council; and with Kit Smith, longtimemember of Richland County Council, to form “Women for Sheheen,” a grassroots organization opposing

As supporters across the state-including an increasing number of Republicans--join Women for Sheheen, Haley’s lead has dropped from 17 to 5 points: and the momentum is with Sheheen. Keyserling’s website, “Agenda over Gender” (www.womenforsheheen.

com <http://www.womenforsheheen. com>), includes an open letter on behalf of the “bi-partisan group of women” in favor of preventing Nikki Haley from taking her “ineffective” politics to the Governor’s Mansion. The letter http://womenforsheheen. com/?page_id=2 , which has been signed by more than 600 women, details Haley’s support of funding cuts for education, cultural agencies, and health services; and it contrasts Haley’s political agenda--including the elimination of corporate taxes in favor of reinstating the tax on food--with Vincent Sheheen’s work to create bipartisan reform groups.

Silent Auction featured Nov. 6 at St. Helena bazaar The myriad church bazaars that sprout throughout the Beaufort area each autumn offer many of the same wonderful attractions: home baking and handmade gifts, gently used household items and books, Christmas decorations and crafts. The Women of the Parish at St. Helena’s downtown take special pride in their Silent Auction, a highlight of the Bazaar that will be held on Saturday, Nov. 6, this year, to benefit charities in Beaufort and around the world.   An element that makes St. Helena’s silent auction different is its “Christian” way of doing business, says Jerry Stocks,

who has chaired the auction the past six years. Bidders make their best offer, placing a slip of paper in the box next to the item, then return at the 1 p.m. closing time to see if they’ve won.  “It avoids last-minute altercations, and I think we actually make more money this way – if you really want something, you need to make a solid offer,” Stocks said.   The auction is limited to 300 items, and they range from excursions and restaurant dinners to fine art and furs, sailboats and furniture.  “One year we had two beautiful bamboo bicycles,” Stocks recalled. “We might have something you’ve never seen before.”

Meanwhile, the crew working on St. Helena’s famous handmade “church mice” reports that a large group of mice will be available for purchase when the doors open at 9 a.m. on Saturday.  However, mouse manufacturers warn that these popular rodents often sell out early.   This year’s Fall Bazaar at St. Helena’s will be open on Saturday, Nov. 6, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Parish House at 507 Newcastle St. in downtown Beaufort.  A Bazaar Preview will be held Friday, Nov. 5, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Nothing is sold on Friday (although Silent Auction bids are accepted).  The Preview is for fellowship and an early

look at bazaar offerings. In addition to the Silent Auction and the church mice, Bazaar shoppers will find baked goods, candy, frozen foods, books, crafts and gifts, jewelry, plants, Christmas decorations, a pet boutique, silent auction and Bargain Box.    Contact the church office at 843-5221712 or Bazaar Chairman Annie Pollak at 843-538-6497 for more information. Or visit    Note: If you would like more info or photo ops on the Silent Auction, Jerry Stocks can be reached at 524-6997.

Book Celebration at EC Montessori It is a tradition in the Elementary classroom at EC Montessori to mark the completion of a Book Group Study with a celebration. The children always come up with many creative ways to remember each book, and The Magic Paintbrush celebration was no exception. The Elementary class began the event by watching a short video presentation of another telling of the story in picture book format. The video also introduced the children to the sights and sounds of a real Chinatown.

Afterwards, the children sampled many diďŹ&#x20AC;erent activities including: stir fry cooking, sewing moon rabbit ďŹ nger puppets, creating their own magic paintbrushes using blue dye, eating traditional Asian moon cakes, making paper lanterns, and even getting their hair dyed blue. Some children came dressed as characters from the book, Jacob Rye was Mr. Blue and JeďŹ&#x20AC;erson Gibson was a giant rabbit. A good time was had by all, and the class looks forward to our next Book Group!

Bill’s R O U Q LI

It's not often that I think of wine in anyway at all connected to Halloween, but there's always a first time for everything. It's not that Halloween is a wine holiday, which is one like Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Day and Easter, when everyone, even if they don't drink wine usually, has to has to has to have wine for their holiday dinner. For those holidays, there is an urgency, or more like a frenzy is closer to the truth, like you wouldn't believe to get wine. For sure, it makes all of our hearts sing and we spend a lot of time in the month or so before each holiday planning and plotting to be sure we have the right wines at the right prices. This year, though, Halloween has to come into the fold because there is a wine that seems perfect for this holiday. Just, please, don't ask what candy bar or jelly bean flavors go best with it. You might not like the answer. Surprise! Before we talk about this Halloween Wine, I need to tell you a little bit about the winery that makes it. Bogle Vineyards started in the mid-1800's as

Celia Strong works at Bill’s Liquor & Fine Wines on Lady’s Island and knows her stuff when it comes to the best spirits.

a family farm. The wines' beginning was not until 1968 when the father and son team of Warren and Chris planted their first twenty acres of wine grapes in Clarksbug, California, a small farming community along the Sacremento River. In the last forty plus years, the Bogle story has been one of growth and success. There aren't many of us winedrinkers today who haven't at least heard of Bogle. The contiunued family invovlement in the vineyards is part of what has kept Bogle Vineyards and their wines growing and improving. Patty Bogle, Chris' widow, helped her husband plant

the first vineyards and, when he died, she took over the entire operation in 1989. Patty's daughter Jody aslo contributes to the family business by being active in customer support, running the wine club and handling all international sales. Personnaly, I love to see wormen involved at all these levels - you know we're supposed to have better palates anyhow. Since 1992, Bogle has participated in the California Appellation Program, where winemakers source (get) fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state. Some of these are blended with the grapes that Bogle grows themselves in Clarksburg, always striving for the best of each grape variety and Bogle's very approachable style for wines. Our Halloween Wine is Bogle Phatom, a pretty special wine because it only comes out once a year, they don't make very much of it and when it's gone it's gone until next year. Sometimes, we've had small amount of it, a case or two, but, somehow, this year we got a bit more and thought you might like to celebrate with it. The name "Phantom"

does refer in part to the fact that this wine is here and then it's gone, an apparition. But, really, there's a better story for the name of the wine. The name "Bogle" is Scottish, maybe Welsh. And, get this, means "a goblin, a specter, or a phantom." Spooky, huh? Bogle's Phantom is a blend of three grape varieties that, when they come together, combine lush berry and fierce spice flavors. It has a complexity that is layers upon layers of different flavors and textures, including black pepper, dark black and red fruits, juniper berries, some toasty cinnamon and nutmeg, all in a succulent, juicy mouthfull. The current vintage, 2007, was aged in one, two and three year old American oak barrels. As good as it is now, it will also age well for several years. This vintage is a blend of 53% Petit Sirah, 44% Zinfandel and 3% Mourvedre. And, all of it for $16.99. Forget those little onebite candy bars. This is the real treat for Halloween! And no half-off sale the day after - it's now or never. Enjoy!

The Lunch Bunch Dines at Big Joe’s Bar-B-Que By Wendy Pollitzer

The Lunch Bunch traveled to Big Joe’s Bar-B-Que this week, and boy were we treated to good old-fashioned, southern food! Uni Flores bought Big Joe’s in January when the previous owner was contemplating going out of business. Uni said to Joe Able, “Take that sign down Joe. I’ll buy it!” And that’s what she did. Flores, the previous owner of China Express, House of Tokyo and Sonny’s, also owns a fishing boat and business, Little Joe’s Seafood. She knows a thing or two about good seafood, and definitely delivers great Bar-B-Que as well! Uni served an order of fried corn nuggets to the table to start. If you ever went to Duke’s, you’re familiar with good corn nuggets. Well, believe it or not, these were better! Like Elizabeth said, “They’re little pieces of heaven!” We have a new Lunch Bunch member, and guess what Beaufort-it’s a guy! Yes, the Lunch Bunch has gone co-ed! Barry Thompson is a new advertising representative for The Island News. Please welcome him to town when you see him. Originally from Anderson, Barry is excited to make Beaufort home. And what a way to meet Beaufort than to join the

Lowcountry Boil, a Must-Have at Big Joe's Bar-B-Que Lunch Bunch! Barry ordered the pork sandwich with a side of hash and rice. Actually all of us, except Elizabeth, ordered the hash and rice. It’s a must-have at any Bar-B-Que joint!

Lizzy Lou asked for the Lowcountry Boil, which was tied for Favorite dish. Barry’s delicious pork and Elizabeth’s fresh,local shrimp were easily voted on as best dishes! Christina opted for the chicken breast sandwich, while I ordered the fried fish. Both were equally pleasing and filling! Kim decided she was going for the dinner-sized portion. She got the rib dinner with potato salad. Poor Kim was teased a bit when we all made fun of the way she ate ribs (with a fork)! It seems Kim doesn’t like getting her fingers dirty. She even eats pizza with a fork! We were all super stuffed when we left Big Joe’s! The portions were enormous. Each of us, except the newbie, brought home boxes. Congratulations Elizabeth and Barry for Favorite Dishes, even though we all agreed each of our meals were worth mega praise! Thank you Uni for inviting the Lunch Bunch to your fine southern establishment and for the genuine, good service. We will be back for sure!

Dr.Mark Newberry, an Oncologist with a Desire to Help By Wendy Pollitzer


uring the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Island News has profiled two survivors, Lesley Holladay and Rosemary Cuppia, as well as Kathy Kilgore, Trea Tucker and Mary Sanders, who are walking the Susan G. Komen Atlanta 3 Day for the Cure™ this weekend. This week, our focus has shifted to treatment options and a local Oncologist who outlines decisive plans for patients like Holladay and Cuppia, who developed cancer and beat it. Dr. Mark Newberry, an Oncologist with Lowcountry Medical Group, is the quarterback, if you will, of the cancer treatment community. Once a patient learns he or she has cancer, they come to Dr. Newberry for advice on treatment options which can include chemotherapy, radiation, biologic therapy, surgery, or even just observation. Dr. Newberry develops the plan and the patient follows through with a collective strategy that is ultimately intended to make the patient live longer and feel better. “The choice is ultimately up to the patient. I can advise on what works best for the type of cancer, the age of the patient, genetics, etc. As a physician, I am an educator. I give choices and outline a plan and then help administer it,” explains Dr. Newberry. Of course, to catch cancer early, one must be familiar with his or her own body. It is important to recognize changes and share them with your doctor. In addition, patients should stay up to date with the appropriate cancer screening tests such as mammograms, colonoscopies, PAP smears, prostate exams, etc. Once a patient has been diagnosed with cancer then he or she will be referred to Dr. Newberry for further evaluation and treatment. “I will typically review their pathology reports and complete a staging work-up to try

to determine the extent of their cancer and subsequently the best way to treat and hopefully cure their cancer.” “Patients tend to fear the reputation of chemotherapy, but most find they have fewer side effects than they expected. It helps to have a great staff. My nurses, Kim Harrison and Beth D’Amato are quite professional and have a terrific bedside manner. They make a hard job look easy and the patients really appreciate it. The bond that we form with our patients is truly special” says Dr. Newberry. After graduating from the University of Virginia, Dr. Newberry attended MUSC and became an Internist in Beaufort. After practicing for six years in Beaufort, he decided to go back for additional training to become a Medical Oncologist. Since September of 2004, Dr. Newberry has been practicing Oncology in the Beaufort area and has helped numerous patients in their fight against cancer through a variety of treatments. Dr. Newberry clearly enjoys practicing here in Beaufort and is quick to point out all of the services available at Lowcountry Medical Group, which include an on-site infusion area where patients receive their chemotherapy, a comprehensive imaging center as well as full-service laboratory. “In addition to the diagnostic tools we have here at Lowcountry Medical Group, we have also been able to work with MUSC in establishing outreach clinics here for nationally renowned Dr. Carolyn Reed in Thoracic Surgical Oncology, Dr. Jennifer Young and Dr. Paul Underwood in Gynecologic Oncology. I am fortunate to have such a wonderful place to take care of patients and so lucky to have access to so many great physicians right here in Beaufort.” I couldn’t help but ask Dr. Newberry to gauge how things are going in the fight with cancer. “Today, there are

“There is no better gratification in the medical world than saving a person’s life.” many new pharmaceutical products and targeted therapies that hone in on particular cancers. Treatments are rapidly improving for cancer care, which is very encouraging,” says Dr. Newberry. “We are also learning that the right diet can make a difference in the recurrence rates. Based on several trials, I tend to recommend an Eastern diet, which avoids red meats and emphasizes fish, chicken, fruits and

vegetables. This has been shown to reduce recurrence rates by as much as 40% in patients that have had surgery for colon or breast cancer. I assume that it will help other cancers but, lifestyle changes could never hurt.” Dr. Newberry cares for cancer patients in the Lowcountry through professional direction and guidance, a cooperative plan, and the heart and soul to carry it out. Beaufort thanks him for that. An Oncologist to someone with cancer is a Savior. To many in the Beaufort community, Dr. Newberry is a personal hero. “There is no better gratification in the medical world than saving a person’s life” says Dr. Newberry. Dr. Newberry has two sons, Marcus and Sam, ages 14 and 12. In his spare time Dr. Newberry enjoys tennis, fishing, boating and cooking. Originally from Mt. Pleasant, he is a Lowcountry Boy, through and through. Thank you Dr. Newberry for a poignant interview about your profession and your desire to help. I certainly admire your ambition and the integrity of your practice. In honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we salute your effort to help our loved ones celebrate more birthdays and our hearts go out to all of those living with cancer.

Lowcountry Social Diary


appy Birthday to one of the Lowcountryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most celebrated and beloved cookbooks--â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Sea Island Seasons,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which turns 30 this month. Conceived by Nancy Pearson and Caroline Trask as a way to generate funds for the Open Land Trust whose goal it was (and still is) to preserve and protect the natural visual character of the Lowcountry, it turned out to be a major success story to this day, being hailed by Town & Country Magazine as one of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;100 Best Regional Cookbooks in Americaâ&#x20AC;?.  It took the pair almost two years of volunteer work to pull the cookbook together from over 1,400 recipes submitted from the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best cooks.  The beautiful cover was done by local artist Nancy Rhett. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently in its 10th printing and has sold over 75,000 copies! The hundreds of thousands of dollars raised from the sale of the cookbook over the years has contributed to saving over 80 properties in our area (so far) that preserves the best of what the Lowcountry has to oďŹ&#x20AC;er--the beautiful views over the marshes, the wildlife, and our pristine water.

Shirley Staggs, Twyliah Kerr and Betty Mathews along with a host of volunteers got the cookbook for sale in 48 states in America and it was featured on The Today Show twice.   Many thanks from all of us here in Beaufort who daily appreciate the fruits of your hard work all those years ago and doing so much to keep Beaufort beautiful!  The cookbook is for sale at  many shops downtown and The Elliot House oďŹ&#x192;ce of Open Land Trust or online at www.openlandtrust. com.

Breast Health 2010 By Dr. Carol Moore

Breast cancer affects one in every eight women today. Diagnosis is a very dark day in the women’s lives who receive this news. We often forget that we request screening tests to detect problems. We simply don’t believe we will get “the call” indicating that it’s our turn to march through the maze that is living with breast cancer. I, myself, wonder, “When will it be my turn?” LIVING WITH THE DISEASE, however, appears to be somewhat doable once the notion of being a breast cancer patient begins to sink in. I say that cautiously because women living with the side effects of therapy might heartily disagree that it is doable. Side effects are many but may include fatigue, nausea, depression, hair loss, pain from surgery, discomfort from infections and their treatments, chronic arm swelling, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats and even infertility if ovarian removal is recommended for premenopausal women. Distortion of one’s body image often occurs following treatment. Sexual health and libido

are often woefully underappreciated side effects of breast cancer treatment at a time of life when these issues are of particular importance to women and their partners. Women with breast cancer develop a positive, meet it head on approach. Perhaps, women innately possess this quality under unique stress. I observe that a diagnosis of breast cancer forces these characteristcs to the forefront of a woman’s countenance. There is apparently a combination of these factors at work which make these women heroes. So, how do we grapple with our concerns about breast health, health care reform, task force findings, politics and economic hardships today? How do we obtain peace of mind while sticking to a budget? How do we decide what set of national recommendations to follow for breast cancer screening? What do we do in our society of 24 hour news reels, high anxiety and fear? Recent findings suggest that mammograms and even self breast exams do not improve survival for

breast cancer. I strongly hold the belief that the public is misled by these conclusions. DETECTION is improved by these techniques. Your SURVIVAL is most heavily influenced by the stage at which the disease is detected, the type of cancer you have and the method of treatment chosen. The National Cancer Institute recommends mammography every 1-2 years for women over the age of 40. Most breast cancers occur in women over 60 but the numbers begin to increase over the age of 50. Most of the false positive mammograms occur in the under 50 age group. This only makes sense since younger breasts are hormonally active which is evident on x-ray. Regardless of what your insurance carrier recommends, get your mammogram regularly. Discuss your mammogram frequency with your doctor. The history of a mother, daughter or sister and the age at their diagnosis may strongly influence your risk and screening frequency. The radiation exposure from a mammogram is very low and the risks are far outweighed by the benefits. PERFORM YOUR SELF BREAST EXAM. If you are familiar with what

your breasts feel like on a day to day or month to month basis, you will recognize when a change occurs. Breasts tend to change prior to menstruation so examination is recommended following your menstrual cycle or monthly for non-menstruating females. It’s not much different from applying facial cleanser or make up to your face. If you have an emerging blemish, you find it early. Skin coloration or texture changes are often as important as nodules you may feel. Most of us perform this portion of our exam getting out of the shower without even realizing what we are doing. LIVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. Eat right, exercise, maintain a healthy weight, drink alcohol only in moderation, learn stress reduction techniques and do not smoke. Live with confidence for we all know that despite our best efforts, one in eight of us will get the news. Walk this walk with friends, family and physicians that are sensitive and attentive to your concerns. Budget for your yearly exams by your physician and any screening tests recommended. We have much to learn from our sisters struggling with this reality.

New Trends in Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry By Dr. Aaron Sarathy

The maintenance of oral health has been at the forefront of the health care stage in recent years. Investigations into associations and interactions between oral disease and coronary heart disease, stroke, adverse pregnancy outcomes, diabetes and bacterial pneumonia has revealed some interesting results. Findings like these have been highlighted in a variety of studies, including the U.S. surgeon general’s report in 2001. At the heart of treating disease processes of the oral cavity are: #1. Prevention of disease and its progression, and #2: The restoration of the patient’s function. The focus of recent advances in dental medicine has been on just that. The replacement of lost dentition is key in any treatment plan, and sets the stage for restoring function and maintaining health. There are a number of options available to you from your General Dentist to fulfill this end, and all of them can provide great long-term results. In recent years, dental implants have become one of the leading restorative choices to provide the highest quality restoration to replace missing teeth and reconstruct

the oral cavity. What exactly are dental implants? The implants used in dentistry today are made from titanium-based biomaterials with a variety of textured surfaces designed to duplicate the root portion of the natural tooth. Today’s dental implants are extremely safe and biocompatible. Implants have the added advantage of becoming “a natural part” of the patient’s jaw through a process we call osseointegration, which is an advantage over the “mini-implant” systems available today. That means that the bone actually “bonds” to surface of the implant once it is integrated. They require minimally- invasive placement by a qualified implant surgeon and can be placed under sedation to increase patient comfort. Dental implants require minimal recovery and downtime on the patient’s part. Once the implant has been placed and given an adequate healing period, your dentist can complete the process by marrying the final restoration to the implant. So what can dental implants “fix”? Some of the routine applications for dental implants include replacing a

single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, helping to provide retention for a denture (especially the lower ones), or providing the foundation for large oral reconstruction cases that require bridges. Dental implants are often utilized in the final reconstruction of both post-cancer surgery patients and post-trauma cases to restore form and function. Finally, in select cases, they are an excellent emergent treatment for a tooth lost due to an accident or injury immediately following the injury. Dental implants provide the modern solution to restoring the dentition and maintaining optimum oral health. They allow your doctor to save healthy teeth (teeth without fillings or crowns) by not having to include them in conventional restorative options like bridges. They help to preserve facial structure, preserving that youthful appearance. Finally, implants help the patient to regain function allowing them to eat what they want and not what they are limited to because of ill-fitting dentures, missing teeth, etc. Dental implants are a great option for patients to enhance their look and

boost self-confidence and self-image while maintaining their oral health and improving their quality of life. The implant process is a team effort and requires good communication between the surgeon and the dentist. As with any procedure, it is of the utmost importance that a thorough evaluation is performed by your doctor and a qualified implant surgeon. This enables the doctor and surgeon to completely address the patient’s expectations and questions concerning the procedure, as well as to match the patient with the most ideal procedure for a life-long solution. So, if you’re thinking about dental implants, talk with your dentist. They can get you started and discuss the process in detail during the consult appointment. Implants are great way to improve your smile and maintain optimal oral health and just might be the perfect choice for you! For further questions call your dentist to schedule a consult.

Health My doctor told me I have a cataract and will benefit from having it removed: what are my lens implant options? Before intraocular lenses (IOLs) were developed, people had to wear very thick eyeglasses or special contact lenses to be able to see after cataract surgery. Today several IOL types are available to help people enjoy improved vision. Discuss these options with your Ophthalmologist to determine the IOL that best suits your vision needs and lifestyle. How IOLs work Like your eyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural lens, an IOL focuses light as images, received from the cornea and pupil at the front of the eye, onto the retina, the sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that relays images through the optic nerve to the brain. Most IOLs are made of a ďŹ&#x201A;exible, foldable material and are about one-third

Might as Well Smile By Cherimie Crane

Have you ever tried to explain something to a puppy? Or maybe have an intellectual conversation with a tree stump? Or possibly, you have found yourself oďŹ&#x20AC;ering a raft to a sinking ship only to have the ill-fated cruisers look away? There comes a point when the puppy resumes chewing your shoes, the stump politely refuses communication, the & ^%#$ boat sinks. It happens. It never ceases to amaze me at the sheer determination of others to ďŹ nd excuses, not reasons, for the success of the successful. It is obviously because of the successful person's connections, gender, hair style or maybe even the way they freaking eat their breakfast; it can't possibly be a credit to their hard work, determination, persistence or intelligence. Exactly how much energy or eďŹ&#x20AC;ort does it require to conjure up this creative casserole of comfort??? I have been telling anyone who would listen about the cornucopia that is the human spirit. I t is oďŹ&#x192;cial, I have heard every single reason why success (professional or otherwise) is out of reach. I admit it. I have a Pollyanna complex. It is both a gift and a curse; usually at the exact same time. I see good in bad, light in dark, and occasionally little pink ďŹ&#x201A;owers, but that is rare and possibly credited to a few hard falls in college. I am from M ississippi. I talk slow, even slower when accompanied by a good Merlot; but I am not stupid. Nor do I live in a happy little bubble, although I am perfectly ďŹ ne should someone have a perfect bubble to oďŹ&#x20AC;er;

Jobs are a pain in the rump (that is why they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t called hobbies), everyone has an annoying coworker, friend, mail person, and/or parent. Everyone has problems, some self inďŹ&#x201A;icted, some not so much. I am pretty sure that was one of the motivators for the invention of wine. Just this morning that my complex was pushed to the edge. All I wanted was a cup of coďŹ&#x20AC;ee. Really. My strong southern roots required that I make small talk. Hate those roots, hate that requirement even more. All I did was say, â&#x20AC;&#x153; Things are getting better.â&#x20AC;? Who knew that was a cardinal sin? A painful 15 minutes later, and without coďŹ&#x20AC;ee, I had been taught every possible reason why things will, in fact, never get better. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where everything your grandmother ever told you was ďŹ&#x201A;ying through your head like superman on crack??? Well, I have. Most of it was about watching my mouth, sitting like a lady, and not chewing gum; however, there were lovely little nuggets of "You can't argue with a crazy person." Thanks Mamaw. Bad days happen, bad months, bad years, bad hair. So do good days, even without good hair. There is light in dark, good in bad, and with the right wine, you too just may see little pink ďŹ&#x201A;owers. Either way, might as well smile. (Mamaw if you are reading this, I am sorry for saying ^% $#% and freaking)

Trick or Treat: Halloween vs. dogs By Tracie Korol

The ghoulish holiday is just around the corner and with it comes a dog’s deluxe temptation of great smelling, forbidden human food conveniently packaged in crinkly bite-sized portions. While most of us cannot resist giving our canine friends a little snack now and then, Halloween is not the time to succumb to your dog’s baleful stares that he-hasn’thad-anything-to-eat-in-a-week. Candy can make any of us nauseous in sufficient amounts, and dogs generally eat wrapper and all. Chocolate, in particular, is toxic to dogs if they consume enough of it. Gum, candy and breath fresheners containing the artificial sweetener xylitol are bad news, too. Some dogs with less discriminating tastes will find Halloween make-up and pumpkin pie-scented candles equally edible. The day after Halloween, you may find broken eggs strewn on lawns and streets—yet another temptation your dog should not be allowed to eat. Although it’s nice to want to include your Best Friend in Halloween festivities, most dogs are happier in the quiet comfort of their home. Dogs that are easily aroused to territorial barking should not be allowed to sit by a window and watch trick-or-treaters approach. It’s asking for trouble. You want to do all you can to reduce the risk that your dog may bite a perceived intruder, bolt out the door and knock over a toddler or run clean away to get away from the fracas. Consider confining your dog in a quiet part of the house, in his crate, with a dog-worthy treat of his own—a Kong filled with peanut butter, liverwurst or cheese. Just like the 4th of July, Halloween is a big day at the shelter. Make sure your pets are wearing their collars and ID tags in case they bolt. (That goes for all my cat friends, too.) If you are insistent upon taking your dog with you for trick-or-treating, do it only during daylight hours and only if your dog clearly enjoys the chaos of squealing, costumed children. Keep an eye on your dog and be alert for signs of stress. Don’t force a dog to accept attentions from anyone he appears frightened by, and don’t force 20

The Island News

anyone who is afraid of your dog to greet him. Kids can be sugared up and over-excited on Halloween and an unwelcome greeting by an overexcited unknown dog may be likely to elicit inappropriate behavior from any child. And never ring a doorbell with your dog at your side. The resident dog may have very strong feelings about strange dogs on his turf. Better to wait together at the end of the driveway. Don’t leave your dog unattended outside, even briefly, on Halloween. Dogs contained in fenced yards are not necessarily safe. Eggs, candy, and other materials may be thrown at the dog and consumed. Less benign items—stones, sticks--may be thrown with intent to do serious damage. Sadly, many animals especially black cats and dogs—are the objects of serious, malicious abuse on this holiday. Miscreant youths may leave fence gates ajar or enter fenced areas, even if “beware of dog” signs are posted. Especially on Halloween, when visitors may be numerous and upsetting to the resident dog, make sure your dog does not have unsupervised access to visitors, nor they to him. Resist the temptation to dress up the dog, unless you are absolutely certain that he won’t find it distressing. I have never met a dog that didn’t absolutely hate wearing a bunchy, hot costume. While he may like the initial attention and squealing from his humans and be a very good sport for a while, most likely he will stress. Be sensitive to his comfort level. Never dress a dog in costumes that impair his vision or make it difficult for him to walk. As a rule of thumb, if your dog doesn’t normally wear a hat, glasses, antlers, hood, cape, wings or a crown every day, then he’ll probably be uncomfortable. Get him a studded collar and tell him he’s dangerous. That’s usually enough dress-up for any dog. Remember that dogs don’t grasp that Halloween is a holiday, and they may find mobs of noisy peculiarly dressed children genuinely frightening and traumatic. Be sensitive to your dog’s stress level and safety, and have a Happy Halloween!

A MUST Read for all Dog Owners... Beware of Training.... By Rebecca Ponce

In a world full of Cesar Millanwannabes, and Animal Planet addicts, it’s difficult to decide where to turn when it comes to training your furry friend. Everybody seems to be an expert these days, and every method from Cesar’s Way to the police K9 training has its pros and cons. But how do you pick? My very first experience with a trainer was at one of the big box stores. I can honestly say that we had an excellent trainer with a lot of knowledge to share. However, at times it seems that the regulations of the big cooperation she worked for hindered her from sharing information that would’ve been very useful. While she shared this with me on the side, she was not supposed to teach it, as it was not a part of what was in their training manuals. I think the level of distraction in the store was great in helping my pup learn to focus, but the constant interruptions by curious customers in the store got somewhat old after a while. After that experience, I decided to do a lot of homework on training techniques. I was horrified to read that old time K9 handlers used to “helicopter” their dogs for being insubordinate (a method of swinging the dog in a circle by it’s leash). At this point my puppy was around 6 months old, and I knew I wanted to get him into some sort of advanced training. I took an Advanced Obedience class at Beaufort Dog. I was impressed with the real-world environment, the off-leash time the dogs got to have in order to socialize and play, and Kelley’s creative solutions to problem behaviors. It also

instilled in me a desire to learn more. Learning when to give attention, and when to take it away made training my second dog so much easier. I learned to time my rewards better so that my dog better understood what he was being rewarded for, as well as the use of less intense positive punishment tools such as a spray bottle or a citronella collar. I had a strong appreciation that we built each week off of what we learned the previous week, thus making it easier for the dog to understand, as well as the human. It’s much easier to teach a dog to “down” if he knows “sit” first; it’s also much easier to teach a releasing command first, and then go back and teach him the wait command; it’s much easier to teach a dog to speak on command first, and then teach him a quiet command, and so on and so on. Do you want to bond with your dog, and learn to communicate effectively what you want? Or do you want your dog responding to cues out of fear of punishment? Do you want a real-world environment that will set you up for success, or an environment where the trainer is limited on what knowledge he or she is allowed to share? Do you want lasting results, or results that fade unless you intensify the positive punishment? For me, the answers to those questions are very simple. My dogs are family members, I want them to want to please me, not obey because they fear. What about you? This article was taken in part. To read it in its entirety, please visit
