(abriDged) County star Barry Michael will open for the Lt. Dan Band Saturday night.

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, starring Heather Denardo, Matthew Donnelly and Michael Kane at the black box theater at ARTworks. Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, this production is expertly stage-managed by Keith Cannady, produced by Palmetto Theater Xperiment and directed by J.W. Rone. The play was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. ABRIDGED continued on page 9

Beaufort woman survives Alaskan cruise rescue By Pamela Brownstein

It was 4 in the morning and raining off the coast of Alaska. Sarah Pinckney Davis twirled in the air as she was lifted toward the Coast Guard helicopter hovering above the Princess Diamond cruise ship below. This was not how the native Beaufortonian expected to be spending her anniversary cruise when she booked the two-week trip a year ago. After arriving in Vancouver and setting sail on a Saturday, Sarah —

along with her husband, Laurance, and her daughter Kathy Bundy and her husband, and a group of about 20 family and friends from Beaufort — was excited to see Alaska again and celebrate her 64th wedding anniversary. On Monday, she walked around the town of Ketchikan, Alaska. And her daughter said she seemed fine at dinner too, but that night she started having excruciating leg pains. CRUISE continued on page 11

Laurance and Sarah Davis are seen in early August, weeks before going on an Alaskan cruise and Sarah having to be medically transported off the ship for emergency surgery.

commentary straight talk with the mayor

Remembering Leroy Gibbs Sr. A community ‘rock’ whose life provides inspiration for us all By Billy Keyserling

I recently attended the very moving funeral service for the late Leroy Gibbs Sr. who recently passed away. Though I knew him well by reputation, I had no personal relationship with “Mr. Leroy,” as he was known throughout his neighborhood in the Northwest Quadrant in downtown Beaufort. For years I have been friends with his son, Scott, whose beautifully sweet and gentle voice rings throughout the Lowcountry as he sings at almost every good cause I attend. Like his dad, Scott is a gentle, kind and giving person. As I heard family and friends talk about Mr. Gibbs, I felt inspired by his life to write this: Affectionately known by many as the “Mayor of Congress Street,” Leroy Gibbs Sr. was a Beaufort native who, among other abilities, became a master

carpenter where he spent most of his career working for Kinghorn Building Supply Company. Along with his neighbors, Mr. Gibbs started the first Neighborhood Crime Watch and served as President of the United Block Association. His friends who have lived in the neighborhood for years have told me that there are not many homes in the Northwest Quadrant that “Mr. Leroy” did not build or repair when his neighbors

were in need. He fixed the bicycles or toys of neighborhood children, and was only a call away when his wise counsel or his sharpened skills were needed. Mr. Gibbs was a quiet and evidently self-assured gentleman who never expected anything in return for his good deeds other than the satisfaction of helping others. Mr. Leroy Gibbs Sr. was clearly a “community rock” who will be forever missed. In these times of “it’s all about me,” a man of Mr. Gibbs’ stature will be sorely missed and I see his passing as a gentle reminder to all of us that family and community come first, that good deeds do not need recognition and that building community is something that made this city great, and we can make it even greater.

Shedding light on Sunshine Review’s ratings Beaufort County School District rated third highest in South Carolina for website transparency with an overall A-. This rating was by Sunshine Review, a national nonprofit group that evaluates information provided by school districts, local and state governments. In contrast, Beaufort County Government received only a C. Sunshine Review’s grading criteria does not include financial expenditures reporting. If included in the evaluation, our county likely would have received a D or F. County general fund quarterly

website reports contain over 200 pages of confusing data with a presentation only meant for trained accountants with lots of time. It uses account numbers and detail in a convoluted manner. There is no meaningful data in a few pages as found in the annual audited report. County website cost reporting on the 1% sales tax referendum for $152 million in road projects is missing altogether. Before the new Lady’s Island bridge and road widening was complete, a councilman had a report showing over-spending of $13 million on this project; however, the website is silent. Apparently some projects were

delayed while the county searched for more funding. Is this poor estimating, poor management or deliberate misleading? Regular capital expenditure reports have disappeared from the website. These were not of value because many projects had no budget to compare to spending. Some were previously reported without budgets, others were badly overspent. Check the school district’s website for excellent financial reporting each quarter. Where is County Council and its Finance Committee? Why haven’t they established meaningful policies on financial transparency?

Should students be charged regardless of the situation? My daughter has been bullied by another student since school has let back in. My daughter reported this bullying to a teacher who then talked to the student and told her not to make jokes about other people if it wasn’t nice. However, the bullying continued and my daughter has been trying to ignore her and not be in her path. Then, after the girl was harassing her again, my daughter finally stood up for herself, and when the fight took place, my daughter’s hit landed first so she was charged with disorderly conduct and sent to family court. I don’t understand how this situation would have ever gotten this far to charges being filed against a child when an adult should have been in place to take more steps or better steps to prevent these things from happening. Now my daughter, who was the victim in the situation, is being attacked 2

legally because her punch landed first. By no means do I promote hitting or fighting as acceptable, because it is not. But are we teaching our students that it is OK to be bullied even if the teachers do nothing? Should our students have to face legal charges for a school conflict? My husband and I both feel that the system needs to be changed. There should be other measures in effect when bullying and harassment are involved. The measurements that are being conducted against my daughter legally should not be done because she was defending herself against a bully. The school system should have a better way of dealing with their students on bullying and harassment. The teacher who was informed of this should have documented it and brought it to the attention of another authority figure and this whole situation could have been avoided.

the island news | september 6-12, 2012 |

I feel that the teacher should have took both students to the principal or vice principal or guidance counselor or even the school resource officer to discuss with both students that bullying threats and harassment is not tolerated and then maybe this would have eliminated an altercation from taking place. Now we have to deal with a negative mark on our child’s records because somewhere between it being reported and this incident, the bullying was allowed to continue. Every report of abuse, harassment, bullying, etc., needs to be handled in a manner in which action is taken to avoid any more of our children being processed and placed in the system as criminals. Not every situation is the same, but by all means should we try our best to put in place helpful systems that will encourage the feeling of safety and also discourage violent behavior.

Weaver at work

Gullah artist Jery Bennet Taylor is seen giving a demonstration of bulrush basket weaving last week at the Beaufort Chamber of Commerce’s visitor’s center inside The Arsenal on Craven Street. When she was young, Jery’s grandmother taught her how to make the baskets at Boone Hall Plantation; today she is recognized as a master weaver. Jery said historically bulrush baskets were more utilitarian while sweetgrass baskets were more for decoration. Example of her craft are on display at the visitor’s center, and she can be found there weaving and working every Wednesdays and Saturdays.

news briefs Dick Stewart to speak at LIBPA meeting

Dick Stewart was originally scheduled as guest speaker for the July Lady’s Island Business Professionals Association meeting but was unable to make it. But he has agreed to speak at the September 11 meeting, which is open to the public, and will be held at 8 a.m. in the Beaufort County Realtors Association Headquarters in the Palmetto Business Park (behind BB&T on Lady‘s Island Drive). He is the founder and managing member of 303 Associates, and he is the founder and managing member of a hospitality company that operates The Beaufort Inn and Grid Properties, LLC. Stewart has served as a member of Beaufort County Council as well as the board of United Way of Beaufort County, Chairman of the Board of Lowcountry Economic Network and the Coastal Carolina Foundation. Some topics of discussion will include: • What steps should be taken to promote economic development in Beaufort County? • Will the adoption of a form-based code type of planning result in positive changes for the business community? • What is your vision for northern Beaufort County at the end of this decade?

Sheriff ’s deputies cleared in shooting

Solicitor Duffie Stone has cleared Beaufort County Sheriff ’s Deputies Raymond Heroux and Kyle Strickland in the June 29 shooting of Johnnie L. Williams and Anthony O. Ancrum in the parking lot of Canal Apartments, 1700 Salem Road. “After reviewing the SLED investigation, it is clear the officers acted appropriately,” said Stone. “I find no evidence of criminal wrong-doing on the part of either deputy.” The suspect in the case, Johnnie Williams, was arrested and charged on August 17 with three counts of attempted murder, one count of child endangerment and one count of failure to stop for blue lights. His case will be presented to the Beaufort County Grand Jury on September 13.

County Emergency Management on Twitter

The Beaufort County Emergency Management Division has a new tool to keep residents and tourists informed. The Beaufort County EMD Twitter page was launched last week and has already been updating motorists daily on traffic accidents happening throughout the county. This Twitter page will now also be able to notify the public in the case of a hurricane, tornado, power outage, etc. Informing those visiting or living in Beaufort County of any interruption into their errands or work schedule is now even easier with this direct link to the emergency management staff.

United Way seeking ‘40 Under 40’ leaders

With the goal of creating new energy and new leadership across the region, United Way of the Lowcountry is seeking 40 “emerging leaders” under the age of 40 to bring new passion and perspective to both the local United Way and to serving the community. The group’s first 40-minute power lunch is set for Friday, Sept. 7 from noon to 12:40 at Nosh Restaurant in Bluffton. Orchid Paulmeir, Food Network star and local favorite, will be the guest speaker. Cost is $16.40 and anyone interested should RSVP to Bethany Marcinkowski at 843-384-9773. “We’re excited about this first ‘power lunch’ and the opportunity to share what we’re all about, what the commitment is, and why it’s important to engage our under-40 leaders in the United Way’s work,” said Courtney Hampson, chair of the Emerging Leaders committee. “We want to design our own plan of how we can make a difference in Beaufort and Jasper counties through the United Way of the Lowcountry,” Hampson said. “Sometimes that’s through helping with fundraising, sometimes it’s through finding volunteers to help tutor in the elementary schools, and sometimes it’s bringing a fresh viewpoint on how to achieve certain results. We’re here to show that you can be involved, have fun, and do it all without neglecting family or career.”

And storms do come By Cherimie Crane Weatherford

Like a gentle spring rain, a sudden summer downpour and the anticipated onset of a pending storm, most women fall into specific crying categories. Situational tears, conversational tears and the extraordinarily complex Oprah tears vary as widely as the shoes in our closets. As unique and telling as a fingerprint, each woman sheds salt water only she can shed. Few commonalities bridge the shed waters from woman to woman; typical tears are understood exceptions. Weddings, babies, bad hair days, monthly visitation and onions, are universal precursors to typical tears. Typical tears may fall without explanation or paper products. Kleenex is reserved for the spring rain and downpours, anything within an arm’s reach; sleeves, sheets, pillow cases even one’s own hair is perfectly acceptable absorbers in life’s sudden storms. Unlike many women who rise from the puddles of tears looking like Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly, I join the ranks of those who could easily be confused with a wildebeest or a recent escapee from a rubber room. Obviously, I do my absolute best to reserve this spectacle for private moments, however, as all things, it doesn’t always happen as planned. When caught in an unpreventable storm in the company of others, I feel certain the innocent bystander is questioning whether to hand me a Kleenex or a card to a skilled plastic surgeon. It isn’t make-up smudge, as that requires actual make-up. It isn’t delicate tear stains. It is the impressive swelling of the eyes, the luminous lobster tone of my moistened skin and the ever adorable running of the nose, easily confused with running of the bulls, but more hazardous and less

containable. It is a Monet of monumental mess. Maybe it stems from a childhood of being surrounded by so many females. Possibly I developed this astonishing attention grabbing skill out of necessity. In an environment with so many tears, one must find a mode of survival; hence the wildebeest. Recently I was caught in such a predicament without an escape route or an explainable cause. It is said there are seven wonders of the world, when in fact, there are eight. Not one woman alive can explain exactly why such storms seem to occur in the isles of grocery stores, pumping gas, or even during a construction meeting to discuss solidity of a home in regards to hurricanes. When the damn breaks, the darn thing breaks; soaking all in its path. In the middle of an explanation wind resistance and foundation heights the damn holding the Cherimie River gave way. Could be the long hours at work, the longer distance from family and the even longer time it seems to be taking to blow dry my hair. It is anybody’s guess really. I’m not a strategic crier, certainly not a master manipulator of perfectly timed tears. Never

have I been a cute crier, a precious purveyor of pity or even a delicate damsel with darling little tears. No mam, when my damn breaks it is blowfish meets the Strawberry Shortcake. Perhaps, it is the self-taught skill of strong women to withhold years of typical tears. Maybe we have a limit to our reserve. Those poor unsuspecting souls thought it was a construction meeting. Surely they were a wee bit surprised at my emotionality over concrete and windows. What can I say, I am passionate about plaster. You can’t un-ring a bell, and my bell rang as if it was dinner time. Tears fell for a job that constantly requires the impossible, a vacuum that will never have a long enough cord and hair that has only one mission in life; to do that which I do not want it to do. I cried for lack of choice in politics, lack of muscle in my arms and lack of fat free cupcakes. The tears just kept coming. Tears for a dog that only chews red shoes, a husband who can name every fish in the sea but can’t pick up a wet towel to save his life and for twist ties that never twist right after the first go! Regardless of the slight awkwardness of the entire ordeal, just as the conclusion of all storms, the clouds parted, the swelling eventually subsided and my nose had nowhere left to run. I continued discussing the dimensions of rooms, the stability of foundation and the quality of construction. Of course there are stronger beams than others, more secure fastening than some, and windows can only withstand a certain mile per hour wind. When a storm comes and it will come; the proper preparation, a solid foundation and Kleenex shall get them through. If not, the rubber room is always an option. Meeting adjourned.

Giving thanks to grandparents With Grandparents Day on September 9, our staff decided to share special memories of their grandparents. Be sure to give your grandma or grandpa a hug, or at least a phone call, on Sunday and let them know how much you care. FROM KIM HARDING: “I was very fortunate in that both sets of grandparents lived with in 30 minutes of my home growing up. Needless to say, I was very spoiled, never had a “paid” babysitter or any sort of daycare, and had more love in my life than any child could ever dream of. I told them things like, “Mom lets me have chocolate ice cream for breakfast,” and they pretended like they believed me. I wanted to have tea parties, but it would only be fun if we hauled all of the tables, chairs and tea up the ladder onto the part of the roof that was flat ... so that’s what we did! We played Old Maid for hours on end, and when I pretended like the Old Maid card must be missing from the deck (when it was really stuffed under my leg), of course they agreed. I feel like the precious time that I spent with my patient, kind grandparents molded me into the person I am today. Grandparents have a calm and caring type of parenting that only they can provide for their grandchildren — because they get to send them home at the end of the day!”

from david boone: “Some of the best memories I have is going hunting with my grandpa every year when I was younger. My two brothers and I would all cram inside Papa’s truck and go visit my his best friend down in Georgia. We’d spend the mornings out in the deer stand, the afternoons riding four wheelers, and the evenings fishing. Even though my Grandma never went hunting with us, I still have plenty of good memories with her as well. My favorite memories with her are the ones where we stayed up late at night playing cards, listening to all the stories she had to share. My grandma is the queen of cards, and for that reason I’m not embarrassed to say that even today she can still beat me at a game of spades.”

from pamela brownstein:

“I have always admired my dad’s mom, my Grandma Loretta. When her first two boys were only 5 and 3, her husband died and she had to raise my dad and uncle on her own. Then she got remarried and had two more boys, and all four are smart, fun, successful men with good families, and that was all due to my grandma. She was energetic and determined and her boys knew she was the boss — and at 87, she still is just as sassy as ever! She’s been through a lot and she’s taught me a lot, and we’ve always had a strong bond because I was her first granddaughter.”

LOWCOUNTRY BROIL Is Labor Day a holiday or not?

The city of Beaufort needs to be more clear about its trash and recycling pickup. Few people on our street put out recycling on Monday, Labor Day, because we thought those workers would have off, but they came anyway. It’s bad enough our trash and recycling pickup are on separate days, but it would be nice to be informed about holiday schedules ahead of time.

Life in hover mode By Martha O’Regan

Do you ever have days when you laugh out loud at how obvious your life’s journey reveals itself? You know, those moments when we are able to draw on a lesson learned or some tool acquired in a past experience, that when complete, we have a level of confident satisfaction that we are right where we are supposed to be. And, it feels good. Some of my favorite moments in the work I do are when I encourage a practice member to go into “hover” mode (aka “higher self ”) and look down on his or her life as though it were a maze. By hovering over that maze, the person can begin to see why certain doors had to close (or slam), while some had to open, wrong turns had to be made, while some right ones just fell open, and even why sometimes she or he got stuck in a roundabout that took great guidance to get out of. The person can see the folks who showed up right on schedule to teach them something then drifted into a distant memory or the ones who showed up seemingly out of nowhere that have

stuck in their hearts and lives forever. In these moments of great clarity, it’s fun to watch those lights that have been dimly lit for years begin flickering and glowing with a new awareness of their purpose here on earth. These are the moments when we remember that everything in life happens for us, not to us, and that every experience is part of our evolution The fact is: Life happens! We all come in, we all go out and we get to choose everything in between. Some awaken early in life where they have to draw upon their inner strength and courage to get through a difficult life experience.

When you look upon your maze of life from hover mode, relish in the chaos and confusion and allow it to bring you clarity for the rest of your joyful ride. These are the people who know early on what they want in life, are all in to follow their passions and create businesses and networks that are supportive and successful. Then there are others who wait until a little later in life and find their core through pain, illness or loss, often during a time when life was moving right along then suddenly, they were bushwhacked and forced to “find themselves.” These are the folks who transition from having “just a job” or “just living,” then wake up one day to realize they aren’t fulfilled. Once aware, they become all in creating a life based on how it feels, often unsure of what they are doing or why, but sensing that it just feels right. Their trust is ultimately rewarded with abundance of many measures. Finally, there are those who are never really all in until the last few hours of their life. These are the ones who

insisted they were always right, barreled through life trying to control it and others, worried about everything, even those things they couldn’t control, and who basically believed they were in charge. The good news is, even though those last few moments may be filled with many “shouldas, couldas, and wouldas,” they can choose to look back without judgment of what could’ve been, along with gratitude of what was. Hopefully, even amongst the regret, they can find the good, allowing for a smoother transition. So, where are you in this list?

Tips to keep your computer running smoothly By Jerod Collins


rror messages, viruses, spyware, slow downs, loss of data, and even system failure. These are just some of the problems that I see on a daily basis. For the average user, computer problems like these can be very disruptive and even catastrophic depending on what the machine is being used for. Normally, when these problems arise, a professional is required to fix the situation, which can take up valuable time and money. Luckily, many of the problems that affect computer users across the world can be prevented with relatively small and easy steps. Here are some ways to keep your computer system running smoothly, safely and securely. Antivirus About 10 seconds after you click on your Internet browser, you have a high chance of being exposed to a virus, spyware or other type of malicious content. Viruses and spyware are the biggest threat to your online security. In fact, more than 16 million households have had a serious virus problem in the last two years. The silver lining is that it is easy to prevent a virus from attacking your system. Think of it like a vaccine for your computer. The Antivirus is always looking for potential threats and stops them before they can cause any problems. Take a look at toptenreviews. com antivirus page for the best programs. I personally recommend Kaspersky Internet Security. Monthly Clean Ups Slow downs are irritating. Very irritating. Long start up times, slow

loading pages and general hang ups — it can be a nightmare with slow-motion computing. Luckily, Windows has a built in cleanup feature that gets rid of all of the useless data that builds up on your computer over time. In Windows XP, Click Start, All programs, Accessories, System tools, and Disc Cleanup. (They did a great job of hiding it, didn’t they?) In Vista and 7 it is a lot easier. Click Start and Search for Disc Cleanup. Once it is open, it will show you how much data you can save by running the tool. This is a fantastic way of getting rid of the clutter and allowing your system to move faster. Defragmentation A big word that does a big job, defragmentation is the process of getting rid of all of the fragments of data left on your hard drive after you delete things. Think of it this way, imagine that your computer is a pie (your choice of flavor). When you delete something, you take a piece of the pie out of the pan, but it still leaves crumbs in the tray. Those crumbs can pile up and make it hard for your computer to finish tasks that it could normally do without a problem. I recommend doing this action about once a month or so. Defrag can be found

in the same folder as Disc Cleanup. Nothing better than a squeaky clean hard drive. Practice Proactive Browsing Everyone uses the Internet .... Everyone. Most of the time, that is all someone uses the computer for on a daily basis. A very important step in keeping your computer safe, proactive surfing allows you to avoid threats without worry. You may have heard about how people click on links on websites, and more recently Facebook, that takes you to a malicious page instead of the funny video or picture that the person is telling you to see. A really good way to see if a link is good is to look in the bottom left corner of the page. Seriously, that’s all you have to do. While hovering over a link with the mouse, you can see where that link is going to take you in the bottom left corner. So if you are hovering over a link for and see something link www.adlinkz2331/bad. com or something of that nature, steer clear of that link. It takes some practice to know what is bad and what is good, but if you are unsure, keep away! Location, Location, Location Where you keep your computer actually affects it more than what most people think. Many people keep their computer inside of a cabinet or next to a wall to keep it out of sight, and that is fine. The main thing to remember is airflow. Airflow is extremely important in the “health” of your computer. You may notice that your computer — desktop and laptop models — has vents and fans inside to keep the PC cool. That is because your computer’s brains,

the processor, can become hot enough to fry eggs and then some. The cooler the environment for your computer to run in, the better. So if you have it in a closed off area, give it some air. Let your PC breathe and it will work harder for you, for longer. System Restore Do you wish that your life had a rewind button? Do you wish that you could go back in time and fix things that went wrong? Well, our lives sadly do not, but your computer does. System Restore is an amazing feature that is inside all Windows machines. It basically takes snapshots of your computer and files every couple of days so that if something goes wrong, you can actually “Go back in time” and get back to normal computing. It is a very useful feature for keeping your computer safe and, in the event that something does happen, you are good to go. Google System Restore some time, it might just save you in the future. Windows Update This feature of Windows may be annoying to some people, myself included, but is very important for the security of your computer. Over time, virus creators and hacker types can find “Holes” in your operating system. Windows update basically covers those holes with patches to keep bad things from coming in and causing havoc. Normally Windows update is set up to automatically update right out of the box, but it is good to make sure. Although it makes you restart your computer from time to time, Windows update is a great service that keeps you and your information safe.

Can the latest in cancer care be found right here in the Lowcountry?

When he learned he had prostate cancer, former Marine Bruce Reynolds was shaken. Having cancer was unsettling, but not knowing which treatment to choose made it worse. Then he went to the Duke-affiliated Beaufort Memorial Keyserling Cancer Center. The team there had answers and crafted a plan that was right for Bruce: targeted radiation rather than drastic surgery. Even better? Everything he needed was a few miles from home.

Abridged continued from page 1

THE INDIE FILM CORNER By Dennis Tavernetti

This next week, two films will have a second showing, so this week’s column has been shortened. (Readers may refer to past issues of Island News available online to read the entire feature.) Both are worth seeing! “To Rome With Love” from The Indie/World Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts on Friday, September 14 at 4 p.m. Previewer Comments: This comedy is not as enchanting or magical as his last year wild success, “Midnight in Paris”, but it is harmless, funny, and a diversion from our everyday lives. It allows us to escape to Roma with all its magic and beauty with cultural and social stereotypes we might expect or not expect ... and that is the fun. Woody does one movie a year, he always snags great actors, some of the movies are great, some of them merely good; a few less than good ... but they are always Woody Allen. “Trishna” from the World Series presented by Emerging Pictures in HD at USCB Center For the Arts showing Friday, September 21 at 4 p.m. Previewer Comments: This UK film in English is roughly based on Thomas Hardy’s classic: “Tess of the D’Urbervilles,” which like its original setting in 19th century England with its class system, seems to fit well the current status of the caste system in India. The issue is whether different people from different social classes ever can gain happiness as a married couple, based on mutual acceptance of a degree of equality? Other than the beginnings of romance, the film never pretends that equality is likely, as the relationship always has one subservient to the other. We see that being male and having a higher class standing is the “better”, regardless of character. Consequently, the point is made that even in modern day India the old “time honored” beliefs that: 1) if the female gets pregnant it is her fault, 2) her sin is greater than the male’s, and 3) the upper class can be willfully depraved and abusive in a relationship without social judgment. The film questions how far we have come in today’s societal setting and sets out that without society’s support one has to take action on their own. However, it was refreshing to read this week that a recent university survey showed that males and females are now approaching equality in the view of their social sexual responsibility, with both trending to being judged more equally for their sexual behavior and mores. Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5. Call USCB Center for the Arts box office at 843-521-4145 or purchase day of performance. Box office opens one hour prior to show time.

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” is one of the world’s most frequently produced plays, and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike. “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like

this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!” raved “The Today Show.” The play will be in the black box theater at ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center on September 13-15 at 7:30 p.m.; September 16 at 3 p.m.; September 2022 at 7:30 p.m.; September 23 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $17 per person, $12 for students (13+), $7 for children (12 and under) and $12 for groups of 10 or more.

continued from page 1 Kathy said she went to her mom’s cabin because Sarah wasn’t feeling good, and when she saw her mom’s legs, she knew they should call the doctor. The ship’s doctor, Dr. Gordon, recognized that Sarah had a blood clot in her leg and she needed to have surgery immediately. The doctor told them that she had six hours to get to a hospital otherwise she would lose her leg. With the clock ticking, the captain stopped the cruise ship so the Coast Guard helicopter could bring Sarah to a hospital in Juneau. Kathy said the captain informed all the passengers of the emergency and that they could watch her mom being airlifted on the ship’s TV station. Sarah said she was in the helicopter for 45 minutes, then in Juneau she boarded a medical transport plane for two hours that flew her to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. It was on the plane that she was given blood thinning medicine that saved her life. She was admitted to the emergency room and spent 8 to 10 hours in surgery. Sarah said everybody was very professional and she felt like she was in good hands during the entire process. “Everyone was very concerned, I was

very thankful,” she said. Her family got off the ship and came to her bedside as soon as they could. Sarah and Laurance met when she was working at his dad’s store, the Dixie Five and Dime on Bay Street, where Rossignol’s is located now. She was Sarah Pinckney then and only 18. “We just enjoyed each other,” she said about their time together when they were first dating. They have lived in Beaufort all their lives and raised three kids — Kathy, Larry and Carol. Kathy and her husband Robert also met in Beaufort and they were on the cruise with her parents celebrating their own 40th wedding anniversary. Although the plans for a special celebration didn’t go exactly the way the family had anticipated, they are all glad that Sarah received such quality care and that she pulled through. “It was quite an adventure,” said Kathy. After a week in the hospital in Seattle and three operations later, the Davis’ were allowed to come home to Beaufort. Sarah said she has been to her doctor and will soon meet with a vascular surgeon at Beaufort Memorial Hospital. While looking back at her journey, Sarah said, “It was an experience I won’t forget,” and added lightheartedly, “We won’t be making it to the West Coast for a while.”

SISTERS by design S

isters, thrown together at birth with often little more in common than their biological parents and the environment that they provide, can, if they overcome their differences, become the strongest allies. Having made it through the family dramas and sibling rivalry, why not use the complex bonds of sisterhood to collaborate in business? Since sisters grow up practicing their creativity on each other, sharing clothes and giving each other fashion advice, it is no wonder that many sister-businesses take form in the area of design. On a recent trip to Nova Scotia I met the Gordon sisters who design under the label Chloe comme Parris. I so enjoyed meeting and talking with these bright young things (Chloe is 24 and Parris a mere 22) and getting in on all the excitement of their blossoming career. At Toronto’s Fashion Week, Chloe comme Parris was the one to watch, coming up with a collection that took the 1920’s and stood it on its ear with feminine pieces that had a bad girl edge to them — think muted florals and hardware. Pleated garments were also

laura’s fashion file an important aspect of the collection These pieces were hand sewn, some taking three days to complete. Fur was the other soft edge finishing out the look with fur shrugs and vests. There is always a young Goth-y radicalization to Chloe and Parris’s design. These two sisters, who put a lot of thought into researching and defining what their season will be (this is only their third), seem to balance each other perfectly. Chloe heads the clothing design and Parris designs the jewelry and hardware. It’s the melding of these two elements that seems to create the

What other designing sisters are doing for fall 2012: Rodarte, the established and celebrated label, is designed by sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy who took the fall runways by storm! This season it seems the sisters have broadened their scope. A 1940s influence could be seen in the tailoring of suits, shapely coats, utilitarian shearlings, cabled sweater and cargo pants, which seemed in direct contrast to the ultra-artistic and elaborate detailing on which the label was

established. The sisters certainly put their own sophisticated flair on a major fall trend — embelishments that have turned up in every designer’s collection in all shapes and sizes, from the very tiniest of sequins to behemothsized jewels. These beautiful accents not only add a luxuriousness to the garments they adorn but no doubt add some weight. The show was so full of Hollywood A-listers, that many joked it was the pre-Oscar show!

New fa ll colle cti from t he Gor on don sisters ’ label, Chloe comm e Parri s.

wonderful simpatico of their collection. But, as the sisters point out, it was being raised in the world of their artist mother that gives them the singular vision that is required when two people are trying to reach a common goal. Here is where we see that being family can make all the difference in the ease and honesty of a partnership and ultimately gives the Gordon sisters their shared design sensibility.

So I would be on the lookout for stars wearing Rodarte come award season! The Olson twins, whom we have practically watched since birth often not knowing which was which, have two fashion labels to their credit with very contrasting focuses. Elizabeth and James, the pair’s more reasonably priced line named for the twin’s other siblings. It has a youthful, girly spirit and showed the most important silhouette of this fall season ... the peplum, which by definition is a short, full flounce on a garment’s waist! So much fun to wear! The Row, the twins’ higher brow — and higher price

tag — label, was its predictable beautifully tailored serious self! Lots of beautiful leather in camel colors and all very body conscious, with hem lines and tailoring that often had surprising twists and turns, making these pieces a unique addition to any wardrobe. Sisterhood does not come easy but is a condition that must be worked at. As the Gordon sisters have often expressed in interviews, it is by being family that they have the confidence and security of knowing that they have each other’s back. And in the cutthroat world of fashion, that is priceless!

You might know Ohio native Mike Ingram as a PGA member and the popular director of golf at Brays Island, but you may not know about his 22 year involvement with AMIkids Beaufort (formerly Beaufort Marine Institute) and as the cofounder of “Friends of the Program” at Beaufort High School. Mike met his beloved wife Kathy of 26 years while both were attending Indiana University. While there, Mike’s golf coach introduced him to a golf pro from Fripp Island who had previously attended Indiana. He was going to build a new golf course on Cat Island (now The Sanctuary) in the near future. Says Mike, “The timing was perfect because I was looking for a place in the South to work on my golf game and he needed some work and he hired me!” The Ingrams moved to Beaufort and Kathy introduced and implemented dance into the public school system. She has been the dance teacher at Lady’s Island Middle School now for the past 23 years. While at Cat Island Golf Club, Mike met a gentlemen named Sumner Pingree and gave him a golf lesson. Sumner spoke about a development he was starting called Brays Island. He also mentioned he was looking for a golf pro to help with starting up his new golf course. Says Mike, “Well, let’s just say ... 23 years later, I am glad we had that lesson!” About his experience over the years, Mike has this to say: “I am the luckiest golf professional in the world to have the opportunity to call my place of work Brays Island.” He adds, “Let me say, when it comes to giving back, the owners of Brays Island are truly a great asset and example not only to the local community, but as well as to Beaufort County.” And about his decision to move to Beaufort 26 years ago, Mike says, “Beaufortonians are what I would call

You can count on ‘em at anytime and they’ll do anything for you if they can.” Mike and Kathy raised two wonderful children during those years, son Anthony, 22, who attended Beaufort High and a is recent graduate of SCAD, and daughter Taylor, 17, a senior at Beaufort High. It was also during that time that Mike got involved in charity.
 Says Mike, “Sumner Pingree is a great ambassador for the city of Beaufort. My efforts of giving back to the community are a credit and compliment to him and what he has always believed in.” Mike became involved with AMIkids Beaufort — at that time it was called Beaufort Marine Institute. AMIkids Beaufort is a nonprofit residential program providing South Carolina’s kids with an opportunity to transform their lives. The program, serving boys ages 13-17 from areas throughout the state, is one of more than 50 programs across the country affiliated with nationallyrecognized AMIkids, headquartered in Tampa, Florida. While at AMIkids Beaufort, teens focus on education, counseling and behavioral services designed to empower decision-making that will ultimately shape their future.

They learn to reestablish core values, life skills and vocational skills — tools to help as they return to the local community and the workforce. The structured, family environment at AMIkids Beaufort has led to a 77% success rate and a 28-year history of giving kids the tools they need to achieve a brighter future. Since 1985, they have helped over 2,500 young men turn into productive citizens. The organization was recently given an award by the governor. Mike has served in all capacities during his 23-year involvement with the organization, having recently served as chairman of the board and is currently serving as the past chairman. AMIkids’ big annual fundraiser is a croquet event at Brays Island that has raised more than $700,000 since it started 22 years ago. Mike is also a member of the Big Green Booster Club for Beaufort High School and is cofounder and project manager for the “Friends of the Program” for Eagle Field at Beaufort High. Says Mike, “The ‘Friends of the Program’ provides an easy way for community and school to reunite as one. It creates pride and a sense of ownership to everyone from parents, volunteers, businesses, faculty and students coming together to make Eagle Field the finest high school athletic facility in South Carolina for generations to come.” He adds, “The program’s goal is a simple one, but one that’s forgotten so many times. These are our kids, our school and our community — If not us, then who?” Mike can boil his whole approach to charity down to just one sentence: “Simply, just give back to whatever and to whomever you can and by doing so kids, community and Beaufort will be even a better place to call home!” Beaufort is very lucky that both Mike and Kathy Ingram decided to call it “home” too.

• At Beaufort Academy, Charlie Humphries had 148 yards rushing on 14 carries and two touchdowns; Reyn Robinson had 158 yards rushing on 10 carries and one touchdown; and Gibson Achurch had 15 solo tackles with one quarterback sack as well as four kickoffs in the endzone that were unreturnable and two other kickoffs for a 12 yard return.

• Battery Creek Senior Willie Doe (#99) earned the team outstanding player award for his unselfish and hard play against Whale Branch in the 13-6 loss this past Friday. Willie stepped in on the offensive line after an injury prevented a teammate from playing. He also played every snap on defense and nearly all special teams. Willie had a Willie Doe key sack late in the second quarter which prevented a potential score by the Warriors that would have put them up by 20 at halftime. Willie’s actions echoed through the team as his teammates rallied hard around him in the second half, falling just a few yards short from a win as time ran out. • Battery Creek Senior linemen Shakill Gause (#50) earned the team’s outstanding offensive player award for the game vs. Whale Branch this past Friday. Shakill graded out as the top offensive linemen and second highest defensive linemen in Shakill Gause the game. He played four positions during the game due to injury. He played guard and tackled on the offensive side of the ball, while playing nose guard and defensive end on the defensive side of the ball. Shakill recorded two tackles and four knockdown blocks during the game. • Battery Creek Senior defensive back Trevon Heyward (#20) was chosen as the team’s outstanding defensive player for his play against Whale Branch last Friday. Trevon held one of the state’s top receivers Trevon Heyward to zero catches with his intense man pressure during the game. Trevon’s actions unfortunately ended early as he had to leave the game with a hamstring injury in the second half.

United Way launches $2.8M campaign


Tuesday, Aug. 21, was a red-letter day for residents of River Oaks Residential Care in Port Royal. They enjoyed a visit from members of local chapter 229 of Therapy Dogs International, whose trained therapy dogs brought good cheer in the form of wagging tails, smiling faces and pettable fur coats. Residents chatted with dogs and handlers, learning about the breeds and personalities of their canine visitors. The visit, a first for River Oaks, was a great success according to new activities director Penny Mont, who said, “The residents loved the visit and are still talking about it and looking forward to next time.” Chapter members are adding River Oaks to the list of assisted living and nursing facilities they visit each month.

With an introduction by Red Cedar Elementary students holding cards that read “Live United,” the United Way of the Lowcountry announced its 2012 fundraising goal of $2.8 million to “Advance the Common Good.” The event marked the last campaign kickoff for Clarece Walker, CEO of United Way of the Lowcountry. Earlier this year she announced her retirement would be effective in late February, 2013 following 35 years of service “It’s bittersweet to stand before you today,” Walker said. “Working with all you wonderful people, we have made good strides to ‘advance the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all.’ “We have an army of dedicated volunteers who LIVE UNITED, who give, advocate and volunteer with us,” Walker noted. “We have a commitment to ensure funding to help our 44 partner agencies, partners and programs provide services to meet basic needs when they arise and to help our children succeed in school and in life.”

The Pacesetter contributors — 97 organizations and large businesses that conduct their United Way campaigns in mid-summer — already jump-started the campaign with $711,210. That’s 25 percent of the campaign goal, Walker announced. “We have a great start,” she said, “but we have a lot of work to do in the two counties. We don’t have much industry or many large businesses, so we are heavily dependent upon our residents to put us over the top with that $2.8 million. “Sounds like a lot? You bet it does. But it’s what needs to be done,” she said. “This is a community that has never shied away from a challenge. We’ve done it through hurricanes, through wars and through issues big and small. Now here’s a challenge -- help us raise $2.8 million to help here at home.” This year, in addition to providing funding to agencies and partnerships that provide for basic needs, United Way of the Lowcountry is launching an education initiative that has an initial focus on establishing tutoring programs in eight elementary schools.

Events support Festival of Trees On Saturday, September 29, the Festival of Trees will host the First Christmas Catch Fishing Tournament in conjunction with the Cheeseburger in Paradise Party at Port Royal Landing Marina.

history with holly

By Julye Scheper Lerma What strikes me the most about growing up was our innocence and safety. Some things I remember: Always having lots of playmates from all over the Hundred Pines neighborhood; walking to school, without parents, and down the railroad track; Judy Chambers and Eileen Harvey’s summer school; having milk delivered to the back door; Christmas at the Chambers’ house while we waited, holding sparklers; swimming in the creek and mud fights; Julia and Sarah, the ladies who watched my brother, me and the Chambers’ kids. I had a wonderful childhood.

‘A Brush With Passion’ joins Belk for Girls Night Out Beaufort’s innovative“A Brush With Passion” Painting Studio and Gallery will participate in this fall’s “Girls’ Night Out” to be held at Belk of Beaufort, 332 Robert Smalls Parkway, Wednesday, September 12, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Jocelyn Mims, A Brush with Passion owner and artist-in-residence, will demonstrate some of the techniques she uses to guide people to create their own works of art. This is the fourth time Belk of Beaufort is hosting a “Girls’ Night Out” event, which is free to the public. “It’s a great way to meet people and get the word out about what we do at A Brush With Passion,” said Mims. “Even someone who has never painted

can create a beautiful finished piece in only a couple of hours. However, just describing it is not nearly as convincing as showing how it’s done. I am very excited about this opportunity and honored to have been invited to participate.” Nearly a dozen local merchants and groups will participate by giving demonstrations, samples, information and more. Belk will be displaying the latest fall styles and offering special discounts on purchases of ladies’ contemporary apparel, dresses, handbags and accessories, intimate apparel and ladies’ shoes. Several hundred people are expected to attend and light refreshments will be served. Visitors can also register

Screening party celebrates Beaufort film Film makers Rob Lewis and Brandon Sligh have entered the only submission from Beaufort into the Savannah 48-hour Film Project. The 4-minute-long film called “Rachael’s Playdate” stars the adorable Campbell Dukes, 10-year-old daughter of Laura and Marvin Dukes of Beaufort.

Campbell is a regular with USCB’s kids theater and has starred in “Guys and Dolls” and other productions. The film also features actress Gail Westerfield of Misspent Youth Productions as well as Rob McFee, who recently appeared as Gooper in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof ” at USCB’s Center for the Arts.

lunch bunch Lunch Bunch has a fiesta at the new Mexican restaurant


By Pamela Brownstein

Located in the former San Jose building off Sams Point Road on Lady’s Island, the new Mucho Margaritas Mexican restaurant lives up to its name. The newest feature on the drink menu is the formidable Tower of Margaritas. The long, tall tower is filled with ice and their special margarita recipe and brought to the table where the handy spout makes it easy for you to refill your glass at your leisure. This is great for a big party or, if you’re like the Lunch Bunch, just a typical Friday afternoon. (Disclaimer: While the margaritas were delicious, we did not attempt to finish the entire tower; we wanted to make sure we got a picture of it for the paper because it certainly has a “Wow” factor.) The menu offers many of the same items, but we were excited to try a new appetizer called Queso Fundito made with cheese, mushrooms and chorizo. Served hot, it is an ultimate dipping companion to tortilla chips. After a long week, we were all in the mood for some meat. Kim ordered the piping hot and delicious steak fajitas, while Nikki had a steak quesadilla. I tried a new item called Pollo Super Bonus, served warm with chicken, cheese, peppers and a nice kick to it. David also tried a new item, the Fajita Chihuahua, with shrimp and chicken and cheese, and it was a must-have. Buck stayed with his favorite lunch combination of a burrito with rice and refried beans, and Elizabeth enjoyed her soft tacos. Mucho Margaritas is located at 5 Sams Point Road, Lady’s Island, across from Publix.

Going back to an old favorite in e







Well, again we go back. But, this time I for one don’t care because I love the grape and the wine we’re going to talk about this week. And, hopefully drink too! We’re back to Spain and their great red grape, or at least their red grape claim to fame, Tempranillo. You may remember, Tempranillo is the grape that makes red Rioja wines. So, back we go to look at Rioja and Tempranillo. The whole time, I for one, sipping the one appropriate wine. We must never forget the sipping is why we’re all here. Let’s start first with Rioja. This is the name of a region of Spain and the wines, red, white and rose, from that region that carry its name. Rioja, or La Rioja, is a Spanish D.O.C., a.k.a. legal appellation, and probably the best known of Spanish wine regions. Historically, the harvesting of wine in La Rioja dates back to the Phoenicians and the Celtiberians. The earliest written record of grapes in the area dates back to 873, in the form of a document from the Public Notary of San Milan dealing with a donation to a monastery. Like many parts of the civilized Mediterranean then, monks were the main practitioners of wine making and the advocates (like us) of its virtues and benefits. In 1102, the King of Navarra and Aragon gave the first legal recognition to Rioja wines. In 1560, harvesters chose a symbol to represent the quality level of their wines. And, in 1635, the mayor of Logrono (a town in Rioja) prohibited the passing of carts through the streets near wine cellars in case the vibrations caused a decrease in the quality of the wines in the cellars. (One of my personal favorites in the realm of wine laws!) The first document to really protect the quality of Rioja wines was dated 1650. From the 1850’s through to today, associations and laws have been formed and passed to augment and enhance the quality and the reputation of Rioja wines. In 1991, Rioja DO was upgraded to DOCa, a more elite level in the Spanish legal hierarchy of wines. In 2008, the Regulatory Council for La Rioja DOCa created a new logo to go on all Rioja bottles. This was an attempt to appeal to younger more modern drinkers. The new logo was, supposedly, a Tempranillo vine in modern form but symbolized the heritage of its past. In theory, Crianza wines from the 2006 vintage, Reserva wines from 2005 and Gran Reserva from 2003 should bear this new symbol. Geographically, Rioja benefits from a continental climate. The Canabrian Mountains to the north help to isolate the area and moderate its climate. These same mountains help to protect the vineyards from the fierce winds of northern Spain. This region is home to the Oja River, and, hence its name Rioja - River Oja. The region is divided into three sub-regions: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. The first two of these are located closer to the mountains at slightly higher elevations with cooler climates. The Baja area is to the

southeast and drier and warmer. Each of these three sub-regions produces its own style of wine. In terms of their wines, the Rioja Alta is more “Old World” style, a shorter growing season with less fully ripe fruit and wines that are lighter bodied. Rioja Altavese has a similar climate, but its wines are fuller bodied with higher acidity. In this area, the soil is less rich and the vines are spaced further apart so that they don’t have to fight so hard for their share of the nutrients. The Rioja Baja is the warmest and driest of the three Rioja sub-regions. These wines are deep colored and can be highly alcoholic. Often they are used for blending into wines of the other two sub-regions. Rioja wines are usually a blend of grapes, Tempranillo being the most common in the red, “tinto,” wines. Other varieties include Garnacha (Grenache in France), Graciano and Mazuelo. A typical blend is about 60 percent Tempranillo, 20 percent Garnacha and the rest Graziano and Mazuelo. Like any other blend, each variety gives the wine a unique component. Tempranillo gives the main flavors and aging potential,

Garnacha gives body and alcohol, Mazuelo gives seasoning and Graciano gives aromas. A distinct characteristic of red Rioja is the effect of oak aging. Bordeaux wine making techniques played a big part in the development of Rioja wines. The use of oak and the vanilla flavors that come from it became part of the identity of Rioja. Although it started with French oak, the cost pushed Rioja producers to use less expensive American oak for a while, and then return to the French with some American still used for the subtleties. Owning 10,000 to 40,000 barrels is fairly normal for a Rioja bodega (winery). You’d need that many too if you were used to aging your wines for 15 to 20 years before their release. One bodega held a “gran reserva” from the 1942 vintage until 1983 — 41 years! But times and styles change and most Riojas are now typically aged four to eight years. The wines now are meant to be drunk sooner. Thank you! Wines from Rioja, red ones anyhow, have four categories. If it is labeled simply “Rioja,” the wine is the youngest, aged less than one year in oak. “Crianza” labeled wines are aged for at least two years, a minimum of one in barrels. (So, yes, some of the time is in bottles too.) A “reserva” Rioja is aged for a minimum of three years, at least one of them in oak barrels. And, finally, “gran reserva” must be aged at least two years in oak and at least three years in their bottles. Traditions die hard, but the walls of Rioja kept crumbling. Reserva and Gran Reserva Riojas are not made every year, only in the better vintages. Duh! The grapes have to be a certain quality to sustain the wines until we get them into our glasses. Needless to say, as the level of Rioja goes up, so does the price. But, when you’re lucky enough to have one these wines, enjoy it! Now we know enough about Rioja wines to get to ours for this week. El Coto de Rioja Crianza. El Coto was founded in 1970 by a group of wine makers who wanted to make a new style of wine. Not a traditional family owned for generations bodega, they still knew what they were doing. Their first wine was released in 1975, and, today, El Coto is the leading brand in Spain itself and a top selling brand of Spanish wine in Europe. They own about 1,200 acres in Rioja Alta with soil that has iron and clay, sand and limestone. In addition, they buy grapes from select growers in Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Baja. When making this wine, it is macerated and fermented in stainless steel vats for 20 to 25 days. They use extended time on the skins to extract more flavors and complexities. Then, it is aged for one year in new and used American oak and six months in its bottle. This wine is 100% Tempranillo with layers of fresh raspberries, cherries, cedar and spice all wrapped up in vanilla and leather. A traditional Rioja but young. How modern! This wine is sure to please year in and year out, all seasons, and with so many foods. And it’s only $10.99 I’ve spent years and many nights enjoying this old favorite. Now it’s your turn. Let me know. Enjoy! the island news | september 6-12, 2012 |

Learn about canine behavior with Tracie Korol 10 HEALING HERBS FOR HOUNDS AND HUMANS

# 9: The sweet benefits of licorice Our dogs do not enjoy freedom of choice. They rely upon us to make decisions on their behalf and we, tormented by the sight of a suffering companion, will often make the difficult choice of providing comfort over cure. We wish for our pets a long and healthy life without the damaging effects of anti-inflammatory drug therapies or immunosuppressive results of steroids, but we also wish for them to be comfortable. Fortunately, there are a few herbs that address both sides of a difficult issue. One of them is licorice, an ancient medicine with myriad multiple applications. A bonus: it grows like a weed and tastes like candy. Licorice, or Glycyrrhiza (from Greek meaning “sweet root”) has been used in medicine since antiquity and its history in veterinary applications is probably just as ancient. In Europe it has been considered a valued medicine and trade commodity for at least a thousand years. Known in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as the Great Detoxifier, Licorice has also been used to treat sore throat, urinary tract infections, stomach ulcers, constipation, and Addison’s disease, a disorder marked by insufficient secretion of hormones of the adrenal cortex. It relieves inflammation associated with arthritis, skin irritations, and respiratory conditions and studies have shown it to be as effective as hydrocortisone without the side effects. Most of us have witnessed the bittersweet use of hydrocortisone and

Licorice is an ancient medicine with myriad multiple applications. A bonus: It grows like a weed and tastes like candy. other corticosteroid drugs (such as prednisone) with our pets. In many ways they are close to “miracle medicines” in their ability to relieve inflammation, itchiness, and even the symptoms of cancer and nervous diseases. But just as quickly we come to recognize that they are seldom a “cure” for anything. The side effects may actually be worse that the disease we wish to combat; almost immediately we can expect to see our Best Friends retain water and gain weight, and often within two weeks we may see side effects that include hypertension, altered mood and personality, heart palpitations and chronic illness due to depressed immune function. In many cases, antibiotics, strong diuretics, and mineral supplements become necessary just to antidote the

corticosteroids. Corticosteroids suppress immune functions and inflammatory responses that are responsible for an animal’s discomfort. By decreasing natural production of lymphocytes and antibodies, and by altering normal defensive functions of the body, corticosteroids can often make disease symptoms disappear very quickly. However, continued use of corticosteroids will eventually induce a serious state

of immune deficiency that can be very difficult to reverse. Fortunately, licorice root provides us with some safer options. The antiinflammatory activity of licorice root is primarily attributable to a chemical called “glycyrrhizin” present in the plant. Glycyrrhizin is similar to the natural cortisone that is released by the body’s adrenal glands. Glycyrrhizin effectively stimulates the adrenals into action, while introducing its own anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, immune-supporting corticosteroid-like actions to the body. As a result, licorice helps relieve pain, itching, and inflammation without completely bypassing normal anti-inflammatory functions, and without seriously compromising the immune system. Licorice is best used in tincture form but comes with the sweet benefit of being sweet! However, it should not be used with reckless abandon or in normal doses for periods exceeding two weeks without the instructions of a qualified practitioner. It should not be used with pregnant or nursing animals as its estrogenic properties may affect uterine functions.
