Florence to honor veterans on Memorial Day The Florence National Cemetery will host its annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 25, at 10 a.m. Barry Wingard Jr., program coordinator, has once again put together a special program designed to celebrate all veterans, current members of the military and their families. The focus remains on those service members who gave their lives while wearing our nation’s uniform. The highlight of the ceremony will be remarks by two speakers, Dr. Ron Walters, National Cemetery Administration, Interim Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs, and S.C. Attorney General/S.C. Army National Guard Lieutenant Colonel Alan Wilson. The ceremony will also include traditional music, rifle volleys and taps by the Florence Veterans Honor Guard, Civil War re-enactors represented by the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, Charles Devans Jr. Camp 10, the Sons of Confederate Veterans 7th Brigade Honor Guard, and the Pee Dee Light Artillery 1st Illinois US Artillery. The re-enactors will be dressed in period uniforms, with rifles and all accouterments and the Pee Dee Light Artillery will fire their cannons near the end of the ceremony. LTC Alan Wilson is a SC Army National Guard Lieutenant Colonel and Iraq War veteran. He was born in Florence to Army Captain/Vietnam veteran Michael McCrory, who was killed in a helicopter crash at Ft Bragg, N.C.,

FMU campus will be set for movie, ‘Suicide Note’ Francis Marion University has long been known as one South Carolina’s most beautiful college campuses. Now it’s set to become one of the state’s most beautiful movie sets. The South Carolina- and Californiabased independent film company G That’s Entertainment Inc. will be filming a made-for-TV movie on the FMU campus for two weeks, beginning May 16. The broadcast destination for the project is uncertain. But the movie, entitled Suicide Note, a mystery involving college students, features strong female characters. It will likely air on a cable

network aimed at female audiences. Elizabeth Snoderly, the producer of Suicide Note and one of the principals in G That’s Entertainment, says FMU is an obvious choice. “We chose Francis Marion because of the Southern charm and beauty of the campus, as well as the fact that the administration was friendly and accommodating,” says Snoderly. FMU students will have the opportunity to participate in the production. Students have been offered the chance to perform behind-the-scenes work, and to appear on camera as

extras and in small roles. Some members of FMU’s fine arts faculty may also appear in the movie. Suicide Note will be shot in a variety of campus locations. Some shooting will also take place in Marion. G That’s Entertainment used Marion locales for an earlier project, 12 Dog Days Till Christmas. It was filmed in 2012 and aired on the USA Network. Snoderly, who lives in Murrells Inlet where she works as a physician, says G is working to promote the film industry in South Carolina. The company operates out of both South Carolina

and Los Angeles. “We hope to promote film projects in South Carolina, and we try to produce quality films on a budget,” says Snoderly. The cast for Suicide Note includes Kirby Bliss Blanton, who was in the 2014 movie Project X; Brant Daugherty from Pretty Little Liars, and The Starving Games; Stephen Colletti from One Tree Hill; Gabielle Carteris, who played the character Andrea in Beverly Hills 90210; and Lexi Giovagnoli from 12 Dog Days Till Christmas and All She Wishes.

VIEWPOINT

The myth of the lost cause and reality of S.C.’s future By Phil Noble Over 60% of us who live in South Carolina today were born here. As native South Carolinians, we grew up imbibing the history, heritage and myths of the South. And there is no stronger myth of the South than the myth of the Lost Cause, as beautifully and brilliantly portrayed by the 1939 romantic historical film epic, Gone With the Wind. The irony is that the myth of the Lost Cause was just that – a myth. And it is only because we have begun to transcend this myth with the new realities of South Carolina – best exemplified by Gov. Nikki Haley – that we are now in the process of building an economic powerhouse of a state in the global economy of the 21st Century. First the myth. This is not the place, nor is there sufficient space to track the brutal historical realities of slavery, the Civil War and the Old South, and their transformation over time into the romantic myth of the Lost Cause exemplified by the countless monuments to Confederate heroes in town squares and on courthouse lawns across South Carolina. The myth of the Lost Cause also manifested itself in the accompanying regressive social and political structures that dominated our state for most of the 20th Century – and also gave us the economic stagnation created by a poor education system, low wages and a hard-working but inefficient workforce. If we look across history and across the world, we see that these creations of national/cultural myths are not unique to our South and they often arise out of military defeats. Sometimes they can be positive, sometimes negative. Much of Upstate South Carolina was settled by ScotsIrish who fled from Scotland to Ireland and then to the New World. The Scots created their own national myths based on the lore of the fight and plight of Bonnie Prince Charles and the uprising of the Jacobites in 1745. Out of this defeat, and three generations later, Sir Walter Scott and other romantics created many of the popular legends of Scotland – right down to the modern representation of family name clans with kilts of distinctive plaids. Much of this is myth, as traditionally Scots used whatever plaid that took their fancy – but don’t try and tell that to the folks at all the Highland games and clan gatherings held across the country and around the world. It’s a harmless myth. An evil example of the creation of national myths came after Germany’s defeat in World War I. Adolf Hitler and his National Socialists propagated the myth of the Jews stabbing Germany in the back and thus causing the humiliation of Germany’s defeat in World War I. This Nazi myth led directly to the genocide of the Jews and untold atrocities against millions of others. Now back to South Carolina. The myth of the Old South that was so pervasive in our state has shaped huge parts of our state’s culture and its politics. A component of this culture is a suspicion, often leading into hostility, towards “outsider” (AKA Yankee) ideas, institutions and people. The great irony is that it is precisely these outsiders who have had such a huge positive impact on our state and are largely responsible for the economic vitality that exists today. After World War II, Senator Strom Thurmond, Rep. Mendel Rivers and other South Carolina politicians used their seniority in Congress to get billions of dollars pumped into the state’s economy via military installations – while at the same time ranting and raving about the evils of the federal government as The Great Satan, just one step this side of Gen. Sherman’s invading army. And in the next generation it was not just Yankee money from non-Southern business investments that were South Carolina’s life blood, it was foreign investment – from “ferigners.” It was Michelin, BMW, GITI, Continental, Horst, and countless others – and now Volvo – that have pumped billions of dollars into our economy and created hundreds of thousands of jobs and made our state one of the leading states for per capita foreign investment. Another great historic irony is that the current face of South Carolina, Gov. Nikki Haley, is the antithesis of any stereotype of the South as the domain of the good-ole-boystyle Governor Bubba. She is young, telegenic and of Indian descent. Now, I’m a lifelong Democrat and I’ve never voted for Haley, but I’m not so partisan that I cannot see that her unique story can be a major asset to this state — and one that we and she should use to the fullest. She has three-and-one-half years left in her term and she should use this time to travel the world and tell South Carolina’s story. She should not just pursue new businesses and investment, but also use her time to build global partnerships among schools, colleges and universities, cities, and other state institutions and organizations – think sister city programs as a model. Sure there will be some partisan cheap shots about not taking care of South Carolina or taxpayer-financed foreign vacations, but if she uses good sense and doesn’t go overboard on spending (as she has in the past) then her critics won’t get much traction. The future of South Carolina is global. And we need a governor who understand this, and will work to build the relationships needed to make it happen.

Saying goodbye to Trey It is never easy to lose a family member, a friend or a co-worker. And it is especially hard when he or she is young. Our community said a final goodbye to Cecil Edward “Trey” Floyd III last Wednesday. He was 25 years old. Trey was a former employee at The News Journal. He worked with us for three months last summer as an advertising consultant. Although here only a brief time, we (his co-workers and I) enjoyed working with him and getting to know him. Trey was soft spoken with a sweet and gentle spirit. He was a kind soul and when he shared his smile it was infectious. You couldn’t be around Trey long without discovering his passion for acting. He started performing at a young age, taking classes and workshops, and appeared in many of the children’s pro-

Brenda Harrison Editor

ductions at the Florence Little Theatre. Those include “Ramona Quimby,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “The Wizard of Oz,” and “How to Eat Like a Child.” As an aspiring actor, Trey appeared in several movies and television series. He played a leading role as Steven in the movie, “Gas Leak,” and he had extra parts in a television pilot, “Neil, Inc.” and the TV series,”The Originals,” and “The Vampire Diaries.” Trey graduated from West Florence High School in 2008 and earned an

associate degree from Midlands Technical College, where he was on the Dean’s List. He attended the University of South Carolina and was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. He was employed at M&M Printing in Florence. He was a member of Central United Methodist Church. Trey loved the beach, skiing in the mountains and was an avid Gamecock fan. Trey was with us only for a short while, but he leaves us with sweet memories. Our condolences go out to his father, Cecil Edward “Bubby” Floyd Jr., of Florence; his mother, Karen C. Singletary of Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.; his brother, George Derrick, and his sister, Martha Floyd, both of Florence and to his paternal grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. C. Edward Floyd of Florence.

C O M M E N TA RY

The way forward for Congress By Lee H. Hamilton There have been encouraging signs on Capitol Hill of late that Congress’s long slide into irrelevance may be slowing. Agreements on Medicare reimbursements in both houses, and on Iran, No Child Left Behind, Pacific trade and other issues in various committees led last month to a chorus of relieved approval both in Washington and in the press. Less noticed, but equally important, a report from the Bipartisan Policy Center found that Congress worked more during the first quarter of this year than the past few years, and that the amendment process in the Senate is once again functioning as it’s supposed to. But let’s not go overboard. Major challenges lie immediately ahead, chief among them how Congress handles the budget. Politicians on Capitol Hill are coming more to agreement. Modest bills are being passed. And we have a taste of bipartisanship. If Congress finds that it likes feeling productive, then I’ve got some suggestions for turning these first, tentative steps into full-blown progress. First, it needs to remember that our founders placed Congress first in the constitutional firmament. It has been far too timid. As has been noted, “Congress today is a reactive body, taking its cues from the President: sometimes in deference to him, sometimes in opposition to him, occasionally in agreement with him — but always in reference to him.” That’s

not the definition of a coequal branch of government. And it’s not just the President. Congress leaves regulatory decisions to federal agencies with little direction or oversight, hands economic power to the Federal Reserve, and has allowed the Supreme Court to become the central policymaking body on controversial issues from campaign finance to affirmative action to environmental regulation. Second, Congress needs to return to good process. This is not a panacea, but it enhances the prospect of getting things right. Returning in both houses to the so-called “regular order” of committee hearings and amendments would do wonders for restoring transparency, encouraging fact-finding, hearing all sides, weighing options, and finding agreement. Congress has adopted some really bad habits on procedure by passing huge bills in secret, bypassing committees, curbing participation of members, and sharply limiting debate and amendments. Calling an end to all of that would boost Capitol Hill’s chances of crafting legislation that represents what’s best for Americans. And discouraging legislators from tying two unrelated issues together — the tactic that led to the unconscionably long approval process for Attorney General Loretta Lynch – would help policy get made on its merits. Third, members need to understand that their con-

duct has a direct impact on Americans’ trust in Congress. Too many have a constricted view of what it means to serve. They understand their responsibility to represent their constituents, but apparently feel little or no responsibility to get legislation enacted into law or to make the country work. They are satisfied with issuing political statements, casting a vote, or passing a bill – but not caring if it can pass the other house and get signed by the President. This approach fails the ultimate test of the legislative process, which is to find remedies to the nation’s challenges. Members spend too much time raising money, politicking, and legislating on trivial or pointlessly political matters. Too few take the time and effort to master the legislative process or to bear down on the work their constituents sent them to pursue: crafting legislation, debating bills, deliberating with their colleagues and reaching a consensus on the serious problems confronting the country. They don’t need new rules to fix this. They just need to go to work. Finally, Congress should heed the lesson of these past few months and reenergize its commitment to negotiation and compromise. There’s room in politics for elected leaders who do not back down on their principles, but these politicians can’t be allowed to dominate the process. If they do, the legislative process deadlocks and representative government becomes impossible. Skill-

First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the

ful legislators know how to honor their firmly held principles while still finding common ground. The progress we’ve seen of late on Capitol Hill is proof that these legislators exist. May their ranks increase.

Lee Hamilton is director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University; Distinguished Scholar, IU School of Global and International Studies; and Professor of Practice, IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years. For information about their educational resources and programs, visit their website at www.centeroncongress.org.

St. Paul UM Church sends team to Red Bird Mission Missioners from St. Paul United Methodist Church returned from the Red Bird Mission located near Beverly, Kentucky on April 25. St. Paul was joined by a group of missioners from Harrison UMC located in Pineville, N.C. This was the 14th year that teams from St. Paul UMC have gone to the Red Bird Mission to work on homes and work with disadvantaged families. Forty two people participated on this mission trip. The Red Bird Mission was founded in 1921 with the objective of helping break the cycle of poverty through assistance with medical care and education. Clay, Lesley and Bell Counties in southeastern Kentucky are recognized as the poorest three counties in the United States and the number one priority of four areas identified by the Federal Government in 2014. Government resources have been committed to developing strategies and plans to help alleviate poverty in this area. Not only is the area remote, but it is plagued with contaminated water caused by coal mining and the subsequent related health

substantially below the poverty line. The Red Bird Mission is the primary support system for the area. It provides education through a faith based private school with grades 112. The graduation rate exceeds public schools with a majority attending advanced education. There is a major emphasis on prenatal care, early childhood development and day care. A medical clinic and dental clinic provide care at a minimal cost. A craft store works

with local crafters in marketing their crafts. All these services are aimed at breaking the cycle of poverty. A major area of the Red Bird Mission is the Work Camp. About 3,000 volunteers from all over the country come each year to rehab homes. Most of the work is aimed at making the home warmer or cooler, dryer, and safer. This year the St. Paul group was divided into five teams named Abraham, Noah, Nehemiah, Yael and

Zerubbabel, Old Testament characters. The teams worked on five homes. The work included a room addition, a complete roof replacement, major floor and kitchen repairs. One home was located on the ledge of a cliff. The road to the site was so steep that vehicles had to park at a switch back. The missioners had to walk and carry tools to the site. A jeep and trailer were used to get the materials there. The roof truss system was rebuilt and the roof was tinned. A room addition was built onto a small crowded home to provide a private bedroom for a young child. Major floor repairs were completed on three homes. A key part of the mission trip is the Outreach Ministry. Four families were identified by Red Bird's Community Outreach that needed special assistance. Teams composed of three individuals visited these families. Plans were developed and implemented to provide assistance that could not be provided by the Red Bird Mission. Mortgage relief, getting power turned on, clothing, food, bedding, appliances, hearing aids, dental work, etc. providing some relief. Funds were donated to provide tuition for

Florence Summer Swim League begins after Memorial Day Drowning is a leading killer of American children. In addition to the presence of water as an environmental danger, children are at risk for obesity related illnesses due to poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Because they are children, there is still hope. Swimming is a cure. The seventh season of the Florence Summer Swim League (FSSL) begins after Memorial Day. There are six teams that come together to form the league: Cypress Glen Swordfish, Fitness Forum Bluefins, Florence Country Club Fins, Florence Family YMCA Fins, McLeod Health and Fitness Center Mako Sharks, and the Palms Course at Oakdale Marlins. The purpose of the league is to increase community awareness of the sport of swimming and sense of community among Florence families, in addition to promoting physical fitness, personal achievement, and sportsmanship. The eight-week season begins after Memorial Day and ends with the Championship meet on Friday evening and Saturday morning, July 17 and 18. Children participating in the

FLORENCE SUMMER SWIM LEAGUE OPENING league are taught all four strokes along with techniques for competition. The league is intended for swimmers aged 416 and club membership is not required. While competition is encouraged, it is not mandatory. Competition is approached as an opportunity for personal assessment of progress. Each

race is timed and the swimmers are encouraged to focus on swimming faster than the last time they swam each race. In essence, personal improvement is the focus and the goal. Swimming promotes health on physical, social and emotional levels. The physical benefits of swimming include

improved flexibility and strength, increased circulation, lung capacity and heart health, weight control as well as physical endurance. The social benefits include fellowship with friends at practice and meets several times a week throughout the summer, working together as a team for relays and cheering for one another in individual races emphasizing good sportsmanship. Emotional growth occurs when children realize that the sport of swimming is not about winning or losing. It is about working hard in practice and doing your best at meets. Learning to focus on their personal progress helps children deal with not always being “the best” which is a necessary understanding for survival in our highly competitive society. Swimming promotes health for the whole child. For more information regarding the FSSL and the 2015 season visit the website: florenceswimming.com or e-mail florenceswimming@gmail.com.

RedWolves Light It Up Blue for Autism The RedWolves are teaming up with Florence Neurosurgery and Spine Center to host an Autism Awareness Night on Friday, June 12 at Sparrow Stadium. The RedWolves players will take on a new look for the night with an Autism Awareness themed jersey. They are trading in their red for blue, the color that represents autism, but the uniqueness of the jersey is in the sleeves, which feature puzzle pieces in the different primary colors. Fans will have the chance to bid online for these exclusive jerseys starting on May 25. Bidding will take place during the game, but will end at the conclusion of the 7th inning on the night of June 12. All proceeds will go to the Autism Advocacy Group of Florence to help them reach three specific goals. The first goal is to start a summer camp. The second is to bring Social Improvement Therapy. This type of therapy focuses specifically on their social skills. Lastly, the Autism Advocacy Group wants to hire a job coach that can come along side of a high school graduate that may not go off to college, but dreams of working in the community. The group reports that this will take on an average of 60,000-80,000 dollars each year. Other activities going on that night include a root beer float station, “Float for a Fund,” and a silent auction on other Autism Awareness items. “We are proud to partner with the Autism Advocacy Group of Florence to make this event happen,” says RedWolves Assistant GM, Amanda Bullard. “It’s truly been an amazing experience to work alongside Angela and Amy and to see their dedication to helping not only the children, but their families too.” Amy Pennington of the Autism Advocacy Group says, “We want to make Florence a place where everyone is aware of Autism, while also providing anything and everything to families with Autism Spectrum Disorder children. We are so grateful for the RedWolves help in making this happen. We are all looking forward baseball night for Autism.”

Ben Zeigler elected chairman of board of Hobcaw Barony Benjamin T. “Ben” Zeigler of Florence was elected chairman of the Board of the Belle W. Baruch Foundation at the Foundation Board’s meeting in Georgetown on May 11. Zeigler had served as vice chairman of the board since 2013 and succeeds Hugh Lane of Charleston as chairman. Lane, who succeeded Minor Mickel Shaw of Greenville as Chair in 2013, had previously served as chairman of the foundation and will assume the role of vice chairman upon Zeigler’s election. “It is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to serve Hobcaw in this capacity,” said Ben. “Through the hard work of the Foundation’s staff, volunteers and many friends, people are coming to realize what a profoundly important eco-

BEN ZEIGLER

logical, cultural and historical resource we have in Hobcaw and how much potential there is for Hobcaw to have an even greater impact throughout South Carolina and beyond. Hobcaw and the Belle Baruch Foundation are on the cusp of great things, and I look forward to being part of the process of not only stewarding this great resource, but helping to develop it to its full potential as well.” Pursuant to a trust under the will of Belle W. Baruch, the Foundation owns, oversees and operates the 17,000 acre Hobcaw Barony in Georgetown County, home to the University of South Carolina’s Marine Sciences Laboratory and Clemson University’s Institute of Forestry and Coastal Ecology.

One of the original baronies granted by the Lords Proprietors over 300 years ago, Hobcaw contains the ecologically significant North Inlet Estuary and was the site of dozens of rice plantations until the early 20th century. The barony was reassembled by South Carolina born financier Bernard Baruch between 1905 and 1907 as a hunting preserve and retreat. During Baruch’s ownership, guests at Hobcaw included Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt. In addition to promoting on-site university research, the Foundation operates Hobcaw Barony as an educational resource for children and adults, offering programs on coastal ecology, history and culture, as well as regular tours of the his-

toric Hobcaw and Bellefield houses and several intact villages inhabited by African-Americans from the days of slavery on Hobcaw’s rice plantations to the 1950s. Zeigler, a native of Florence and a shareholder in the law firm of Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd, P.A., focuses his practice on public finance, economic incentives and nonprofit and government law. He also serves as a member of the McLeod Health Board of Trustees, The South Carolina Golf Association Board of Directors, the Florence County Museum Board, and he is chairman of the board of the Wright Foundation for Southern Art and president of the Florence County Historical Society.

South Carolina Colonial Dames XVII Century complete 2014-2015 year with breakfast meeting

STATE PAGES – from left, Ava Wellborn, Kristen Wayne and Mary Jane Lee

The Peedee Chapter of the South Carolina Colonial Dames XVII Century held its final meeting for 201415 calendar year on Saturday, April 18. A breakfast meeting was held at the Florence Country Club. Mrs. Edwin C. McGee, Chapter President presided. After the rituals and business portion of the meeting, Mrs. McGee turned the program over to Bennettsville member, Jayne Lee. She and her daughter, Mary Jane Lee, who served as a page, reported on the 60th Anniversary State Conference. The 60th annual state conference of the South Carolina Society Colonial Dames XVII Century was held Feb. 20-21, at the Clarion Hotel Downtown in Columbia. State President, Ms. Mary Duvall, presided. “Service, Respect and Honor: Service to our Soci-

Fantasy vs Reality kicks off Thursday at Art Trail Gallery Three-D artist, Jim Gleason, and photographer, Lee Benoy are joining together for an exhibit of high contrast, entitled, “Fantasy versus Reality.” The show kicks off Thursday, May 21, at the Art Trail Gallery with a free reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome. A special highlight of the evening will be an extended bluegrass performance by Carolina Crossroads. Ernie McCormick, Jerel Barnes, and Charlie Calder will debut their new young fiddler that evening. “Our show has two sides, like a

coin,” says Gleason. “I’m the fantasy side, the side that tries to put as much space as possible between reality and the way I view the world. Every book, movie, concert and museum exhibit I’ve ever seen is the inspiration for my creations.” An expert musical instrument repair technician with decades of experience, Gleason crafts his sculptural pieces from the parts and pieces of instruments that are beyond repair. He gives them new life through his art. Benoy, on the other hand, special-

izes in two-dimensional photography. His work demonstrates a sensitive realism captured in the images of his travels through the Pee Dee and the Low Country. In addition to the works of Gleason and Benoy will be those of FSD1 students from South Florence High, Wilson High, West Florence High, Williams Middle, Sneed Middle, and Southside Middle. The Art Trail Gallery is downtown at 185 West Evans St. The show runs until mid-June.

ings and business sessions. A “President’s Reception” was held on Friday evening followed by a banquet. Entertainment was presented by Mrs. James Van Blarcom. Her rendition of “There is nothing like a Dame!” brought humor to the characteristics of a true Colonial Dame. Mary Jane Lee, daughter of Luke and Jayne Lee, represented the Peedee Chapter Colonial Dames XVII Century. On Friday evening, she had the pleasure of serving as personal page to State President, Ms. Mary M. Duvall. On Saturday, chapter

presidents paid tribute to departed members. After the memorial service, the business session ensued.
