VOL. 37, NO. 1

Family movie filmed in Florence, Marion Florence was one of two site locations for an upcoming family movie currently titled, “PAWS P.I.” The independent feature film stars a young girl and boy, four dogs, and an adult villain. Writer and co-producer Donald Pemrick describes the movie as a “Scoobie Doo” type story in which the kids and dogs try to solve the case of a missing will. A crooked uncle lives in house where the will is hidden. James Tavare, who has appeared in several Harry Potter films, plays the role of an uncle – one of the villains in the movie. The other actors are unknowns. They include 11 year-old Neal Genys of Atlanta, Ga., 9 year-old Selah Atwood of Asheville, N.C. Lexi Giovagnoi of Myrtle Beach plays a police officer. They auditioned for the film via the Internet, which Pemrick says is common today for movies filmed outside of Los Angeles, where he resides. The dogs included a miniature poodle and three mutts. In the movie they are known as Peabody, Jackson, Rosco and Cleo. Dean Frank, also of L.A., is coproducer with Pemrick. Local producer is Elizabeth Snoderly of the Myrtle Beach area. She has been involved in many movies filmed in this state, Pemrick said. The movie was filmed in both Marion and Florence. The scenes in Florence featured a stately home here which the owners asked not to identify. It was a two and a half week

MOVIE WRITER AND CO-PRODUCER DONALD PEMRICK shoot, which began on Nov. 30 and ended on Dec. 17. Due to the wet weather, a scene at the skateboard park here was postponed. Pemricks hopes to come back in January to film that scene. He expects the movie to be completed in April. The next step will be to host screenings to sell the movie which might be picked up by a movie studio, a television

network, or Netflix, etc. Cely Marshall Kahn of Florence was an extra in the final scene of the movie. She played a townsperson attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony when the house in the movie opened as an animal shelter. Cely said that one scene took about four hours to film, due to dozens of takes. “We were working with animals

and there were multiple camera angles, including close-ups,” she explained. There was also a drone in the air shooting from above, Cely added. “Everyone treated me with courtesy. It was special to be there,” she said.

Hurricane debris cleanup update The City of Florence has released additional updates as a part of the#NextPhaseFlorence Hurricane Matthew Clean-Up Effort. Debris removal and monitoring contractors are continuing to work quickly in neighborhoods. They were asked to complete a first

pass before the Christmas holidays. The second pass will occur after the holidays and will clean up all additional debris and will allow residents to get debris to the edge of right of ways. As a reminder, contractors will make three passes. Some debris, including tree

stumps, have been left by contractors. FEMA rules and regulations require those items to be collected and reimbursed differently than regular vegetative debris. City crews and debris monitors are busy measuring and inventorying all stumps. That inventory will be given to FEMA, who will be per-

forming a 10% audit of our inventory. If we are found to have correctly inventoried the stumps, we will then move forward collecting all stumps and other related debris. City crews will be transitioning from work zones 1 and 6 to city SEE

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

The family had already gathered in the valley below the Gravelly Spur for an unbelievable feast of ham garnished with pineapple, green beans in a dish surrounded by little pearl onions, mashed potatoes and gravy, and dandelion greens seasoned with just the right amount of pepper and fresh churned butter. The dinner was topped off with one of Grandma Kitty’s pumpkin pies. She carefully prepared each item in her cast iron pots over the open flames of the hearth. She never complained about all the work that was involved in keeping the fire stoked and having to keep such close tabs on each item to make sure they were just right. The days following Thanksgiving always meant there would be some leftovers for the family to enjoy in a variety of creations that she would lovingly craft to give the family the illusion that they were not eating the same dishes each meal. For years, she toiled to make the three meals a day for her evergrowing family. One day when the family went to town that summer, Grandpa Bill noticed her lingering in Ollison’s General Store around a catalog with pictures of some new wood cooking stoves. Although she never said a word, he saw in her eyes the desire she had for a wrought iron Home Comfort stove. He decided then and there that she would have one. So he made an arrangement with Mr. Ollison to buy the stove, paying a bit at a time through the rest of the year to have it arrive just before Christmas. Grandpa Bill had managed to keep the purchase a secret from the entire family. He even arranged for everyone to be gone to visit Cousin Winfrey Small so that when Mr. Ollison arrived in his wagon on Dec. 23, with a tarp covering the contents, no one could see. Mr. Ollison and Grandpa Bill unloaded the stove and set it in the kitchen. He had worked all morning preparing the stove pipe so he could get it hooked up and have it ready when she returned. He was making the last adjustment as he heard the wagon pull up in the yard. He quickly pulled a bit of red ribbon into a bow and set it in the middle of the stove. He sat down quietly at the table with his newspaper in his hand as if nothing was out of the ordinary. As the kids rushed into the house, they did not even notice the large stove in the kitchen until Grandma Kitty dropped the pail she was carrying with her Christmas cookies inside. She stood in the middle of the kitchen floor, her hand over her mouth, holding back a flood of tears as she saw the stove. The sound of the pail hitting the floor brought all the kids to the kitchen, and they began hovering around the stove. Pearl said, “Did Santa come early?” Grandpa Bill said, “Yes, he said he would be back in a couple of days, but he thought your mother might like to have her present early.” Grandma Kitty had moved quietly to her kitchen chair, sitting down slowly, never taking her eyes off the stove except to wipe away the tears

of joy flowing down her cheek. Pearl said, “Why are you so sad about getting a present?” “I’m not sad dear, I am just so happy I could not help crying,” she said. “So you like the new stove?” she asked. “I have never gotten a better present from Santa in my life,” she said. She rose and gave Grandpa Bill a big hug. “Thank you for telling Santa what I wanted,” she said. “If he could, he would give you so much more,” he said. “I have everything I need right here,” she said, as she gathered all

her children close and hugged them tightly. “The New Stove” is from Randall Franks’s “A Mountain Pearl: Appalachian Reminiscing and Recipes.” Franks is an award-winning musician, singer and actor.

Hey South Carolina, Downtown Christmas store displays spur childhood memories what’s the plan? By Phil Noble Over the last week or so, the same basic story has appeared in all the major newspapers around the state: economists have projected that we as a state (i.e. the legislature) will have an additional $446 million to spend over the next fiscal year. It’s good news that we will have this additional money to address some of the serious needs of our state. It’s bad news that all the state agencies have showed up asking for $1.9 billion in new money they say they need to address what they say are the “serious needs of the state.” We have $446 million – they want $1.9 billion So, let’s look first at the familiar problem of too little money to do all the things the agencies want to do, and then second, let’s look at the more fundamental issue of how we as a state decide how to spend our money. The budget news stories are full of long lists of what all the agencies say they need. Not surprising, a lot of them say that their need is “the number one priority of our state.” Fixing our roads is our top priority; fixing our retirement system and its huge deficit is our top priority; fixing our K-12 school system is our top priority… you get the picture. And, all of these folks are right – all of these things are our top priority. For years, we have had these same problems but every year the legislature has kicked the can down the road and not fixed what should have been fixed long ago. So, all of those cans that they have been kicking down the road have now fallen into a pothole that’s so big and deep that even the legislature can’t ignore things any longer. The specifics of this year’s budget request prove my point. The higher education institutions of the state alone have requested $1.1 billion in new money – that’s 72% of all the requests that have been made. Notice that this 72% does not include roads, pension or K-12 education. So, what’s going to happen? The answer is politics – plain and simple, raw and ugly. The politics of who gets what. It will be the politics of this special interest battling this other special interest trying to get what they want. It will be a pitched battle between College of Charleston alumni and friends who want $130 million for renovations of some buildings and a new technology center vs Medical University alumni and friends who want $108 to renovate some building and a new College of Pharmacy. Take this one example and multiply it many times over – with law enforcement vs social services or flood control and dam repair vs. dredging for the ports and beach nourishment in Myrtle Beach or it’s USC alumni vs Clemson alumni … and on and on it goes. And in one way or the other, it’s one lobbyist vs another lobbyist – and most often their weapons of choice will be campaign contributions, free breakfast, lunch and dinners followed by evenings with scotch and bourbon and who know what all after that. A lobbyist once explained it to me this way: first shift lobbying is what goes on during the day time in the capitol building and legislator offices – it’s mostly middle age white guys in suits (who are the paid lobbyists). Second shift lobbying begins when the legislature adjourns and there is lots of expensive food, cocktails and more women and lobbyist principals (people who pay the lobbyists) are added in the mix. Third shift lobbying is virtually all women, mostly young and attractive and… well you get the picture. Let me suggest a better way. Back in 1995, I was invited to speak about the Internet and new technology to a big international conference in Dublin, Ireland. Setting aside my love of all things Irish, including my family roots, I was excited to go to Ireland as they were in the early days of a tech driven boom and I wanted to learn some lessons that might be applicable to South Carolina. We are both about the same size in land mass and population, with low wage / low skill economies and we have a number of similar problems. During the course of the conference, the leaders of all three major political parties came and spoke to us and what they said was amazing – they all said the same thing, literally. In succession, each leader stood up and said “Here are the four goals for Ireland and how we are going to build a better future for our children: 1) improve basic education and promote technology skills, 2) change laws and regulations to promote entrepreneurial business, 3) reform the tax structure and incentives so that successful creative people and enterprises don’t leave the country for tax reasons, 4) promote an image to the world that Ireland is ideal for the tech industry and related foreign investment.” Each of the party leaders recited each of the same four points. They had differing opinions of the best way to reach these goals and they put the goals in different priority order – but they each recited the same four strategic goals. In short, they had a strategic plan for the country. The had developed it together, everyone knew what it was, and they all agreed to make legislative and political decisions based on their strategic plan. And, what is our strategic plan for South Carolina? Best I know, there isn’t one. I googled ‘South Carolina strategic plan’ and got nothing. There were lots of strategic plans for this state department and that department, for this economic group and that group, for this city and that city – but no strategic plan for the state of South Carolina as a whole. All of this leads me to my favorite passage in Alice in Wonderland: Alice: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” Cheshire Cat: “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.” Alice: “I don’t much care where –” Cheshire Cat: “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.” Next month the state legislature is going to meet for the year to decide how all this new money is spent, which road will get built, which college dorm will get renovated – and such. I would suggest they first consider a more basic question: “Which way I ought to go from here?” Hey South Carolina, what’s the plan?

It’s been an exciting year watching Downtown Florence come alive again. The Christmas season is just icing on the cake for me because downtown has begun to look like Christmas. I am referring to the downtown businesses and merchants who have decorated their store fronts for the holidays. Employee Reward Solutions, who along with Med-Enroll, now occupy the building that housed The Fashion Center during my childhood and youth, have a first-class holiday scene welcoming visitors downtown. The window display was the result of a contest with employee teams and I’m told all of the designs were so great that instead of one winning team, the designs were combined to make a really spectacular winter scene. Next door, Tracy Rowell Photography came up with another Christmas display worthy of mentioning. And a few doors down from her, Box Car Market, which hasn’t yet opened, also went out of their way to spread Christmas cheer. Across the street, Mainstream Boutique got into the holiday decorating

spirit with lights and tinsel. And the small windows at Personal Papers are so pretty and nice. I particularly love the “antique” typewriter with the message Merry Christmas displayed from a “typed” paper. It brought back memories of pounding on a similar old Royal typewriter during my early years at the Morning News. I call it “pounding” because that is what we did when we typed on those old black machines. Once we switched to computers, it took a little while to get used to typying softly. Old habits made letters rush across the screen until my co-workers and I learned not to pound. I also want to mention the Top Hat Special Teas tearoom on the 200 block of West Evans. Owner Laurie Crouse

gave her windows a Christmas welcome as well. The decorated store windows remind me of my childhood when we made trips downtown just to see the Christmas displays. Of course, It was nothing like the spectacular window displays at Macy’s Department Store and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City, but as a young child I had not seen those. And, there were many more stores in the 1950s and not many other areas to compete with the colorful lights and displays downtown. This year’s store display decorations has not only spread cheer, but hope that their efforts will inspire others to get into the spirit next year and years to come. On Sunday the anticipated Christmas Day of 2016 will be upon us. It seems fitting that this year, Christians will be able to celebrate the birthday of their Saviour in church. For me that makes Jesus’ birthday even more special. Merry Christmas dear readers, and may God bless you and yours!

President-elect Trump: the new Whig president By Dr. Justin DePlato As someone who served as a Republican delegate from Pennsylvania during the 2016 election, and as a professor of political science and presidential history, I have some fresh political-historical observations untangled from partisan gossip about Donald Trump and his future presidency. It seems likely that Donald Trump, based on his policy announcements for his first 100 days, is very much in line with Whig presidents of the 1800s. Many of Trump’s proposed first actions are plans reducing and restricting presidential prerogatives during Barack Obama’s presidency—very similar to Whig proposals responding to President Andrew Jackson. For example, Trump will examine trade policies such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, re-examine America’s aggressive and overreaching foreign policy, and scale back restrictive environmental regulations that are disproportionately aimed at the coal and steel industries. He will implement a “Trump” rule that for every new regulation on business two previous regulations must be repealed. He will fight against crony lobbying in Washington, offer legislation for Congressional term limits, and begin an audit of many departments. Some of Trump’s big domestic plans include infrastructure legislation to rebuild America. He also endorses a broader collaboration between private business and government, promoting rapid economic growth and a resurgence of industrial growth in the United States. He will continue demanding a modern competitive economy and will reform the American tax

code. Further, he will keep open an option for tariffs to protect the American workforce and industrial growth. If these ideas sound familiar to you, then you could have been a Whig sympathizer in the 1800s. The Whig party was founded in the early- to mid-1800s following the tradition of the British Whig Party. The party’s main goals were to reduce the powers of the presidency, namely the egregious actions of Andrew Jackson. The party favored economic protectionism, restraining the size of the federal government, and scaling back presidential decrees. These policy principles were embodied in Henry Clay’s “American system,” which was the heart of Whig policy ideas and had three main goals: 1) tariffs to protect and promote American industry; 2) a healthy banking system to promote commerce; 3) federal dollars for American infrastructure. Further, the Whigs favored a foreign policy that placed American interests first and scaled back American entanglements abroad. The very first Whig president was William Harrison, who died only 30 days into his presidency. His vice president was John Tyler, who was doubted as a Whig. Tyler would cautiously pursue Whig policies, but what is interesting about the first Whig administration is the combination of an ardent Whig with a pragmatist. This duo is similar in inversion to Trump and Mike Pence. Pence is clearly a “principled” conservative Republican (an ideologue) but Trump

is much more a pragmatic Whig (reformer). As the policy preferences indicate, Trump is more in line with the Whig party than that of the modern Republican Party. The second elected Whig president was Zachary Taylor, a former American general famous for his bravery and successes in the American-Mexican war. He was not a politician and never held any office before his election to the presidency. The Whig party, a party of reformers, favored outsiders to the office. Of course, Trump is the outsider. Taylor’s presidency was short, but a famous Taylor quote reveals a further similarity between Trump and the Whigs. Taylor said about his chances of becoming president: “The idea that I should become president seems to me too visionary to require a serious answer. It has never entered my head, nor is it likely to enter the head of any other person.” Trump is surely unaware of his support for the Whig platform but in principle he and the Whigs share a great deal in common. Trump, just like the Whigs, wants broad reform of the federal government, reduction in regulations, a strong-competitive economy, infrastructure legislation to modernize America, economic protectionism, and an awareness of the tyranny of power in Washington. Maybe the best evidence of the shared Trump-Whig paradigm is Speaker Clay’s support of the American system: “Are we doomed to behold our industry to languish and decay yet more and more?

First Amendment 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 right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

… But there is a remedy and that remedy consists in modifying our foreign policy and in adopting a genuine American System.” Behold the new Whig president, Donald Trump.

His latest book is “American Democracy: Founders, Presidents and Enlightened Philosophers.” His other books include, “American Presidential Power and the War on Terror: Does the Constitution Matter?” and “The Cavalier Presidency: Executive Power and Prerogative in Times of Crisis.”

Juvenile arbitrators recognized at luncheon for their service BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. Solicitor Ed Clements of the 12th Judicial Circuit recognized the 14 juvenile arbitrators who serve the circuit at the annual Arbitration Luncheon on December 13 held in the Florence Civic Center Santee Room. The solicitor personally thanked each arbitrator attending with a certificate of appreciation and a gift bag. The solicitor noted that the total community service hours completed this year were 3,032. Donations

totaled $5,510, of which $2,000 was donated to Nichols Disaster Relief Fund. Solicitor Clements presented a check for $2,000 to Nichols Chief of Police Mark Lewis on behalf of Nichols Mayor Lawton Battle. “They are close to us, our neighbors and they need our help,” said Clements. He explained that the juvenile participates in the arbitration program wanted to do something to help and raised the money for this purpose. Raising $2,000 represented a tremendous effort on the part of these youth, he added.

SOLICITOR ED CLEMENTS, LEFT, PRESENTS CHECK TO NICHOLS CHIEF OF POLICE MARK LEWIS FOR DISASTER RELIEF The total restitutions paid to victims was $2,645. Clements also recognized the McLeod NurseFamily Partnership which recently received 175 wel-

come baby gift baskets provided by juvenile arbitration participants. Clements noted that the youth raised $2,400 to purchase the items for the gift baskets. The Nurse-Fam-

ily Partnership provides home support to low-income first-time mothers during pregnancy and up to two years after the baby arrives. Mike Nunn of the Flo-

rence County Sheriff’s Office spoke on behalf of Sheriff Kenny Boone and showed a short video on what the sheriff’s department does. He called it a modern sheriff’s office. Following the video, Nunn commented on the work of the arbitrators saying they help provide a remedy and give youth offenders an option to stay out of the prison system. Victims get a sense of involvement as well, he noted. Solicitor Clements remarked that arbitrator Howard Efird told him, “We throw money at things and that doesn’t work. You’ve got to throw yourself out there.” “One thing I get passionate about is young people,” Clements told his audience. “You do not know how valuable you are. You are blessing people and blessing our community.” The Juvenile Arbitration program needs and welcomes volunteers. To find out more call Robin Hewitt, director of Juvenile Diversion Programs 843-2921630 Ext. 56226.

Pierce Campbell appointed chief marketing officer

Black Creek watershed gets $35,000 grant from Duke Energy Pee Dee Land Trust received a $35,000 grant to initiate a long-term process for strategic conservation of high-priority lands along Black Creek in Darlington County in South Carolina. The grant is part of Duke Energy’s Water Resources Fund, a $10 million commitment to help regional nonprofits protect and improve the environment. The funds awarded by Duke Energy will be used to prioritize streamside lands, educate landowners about conservation options and complete two conservation easement projects. “The Black Creek watershed is where we got our start as an organization 17 years ago, and the people who live near this stream form the heart of our conservation community,” said David Harper, Pee Dee Land Trust executive director. “The Water Resources Fund grant is right in line with our strategic conservation work – it allows us to take a closer look at streamfront properties that provide the greatest water quality and quantity benefits to the creek. We can then work with those landowners to develop plans that meet their financial and family goals while keeping the land in its natural condition, for this and future generations.” Pee Dee Land Trust is one of 12 organizations across North Carolina, South Car-

resources we strive to protect and restore. We look forward to our partnership with Pee Dee Land Trust and the impact this grant will have in the area.” Recipients of the Water Resources Fund grants are selected by an independent body that includes five environmental experts and two

Duke Energy employees. Selected projects are chosen on several criteria, including whether the project is science-based and researchsupported. The Black Creek watershed is a tributary of the Pee Dee River in Chesterfield, Darlington and Florence counties in South Carolina.

The conservation strategy planned by Pee Dee Land Trust will improve water quality, water quantity and conservation for Black Creek by partnering with landowners to develop conservation plans and easements for permanent protection of riparian forest and farm properties.

Donation to fund monitors for NICU Local Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers and members recently wrapped up a seven-week campaign, collecting more than $136,000, on behalf of McLeod Children’s Hospital. It was part of a national campaign for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals which resulted in nearly $37 million for member hospitals across America. Donations poured in Aug. 29 to Oct. 16, as Walmart and Sam’s Club associates at 29 locations held various in-store fundraising activities and asked

customers and members at the register to help kids live better. “As a company, we support many organizations doing great work around the globe, but there is little work more delicate or critical than the services provided by McLeod Children’s Hospital and others like them,” said Brooke Mueller, director of Public Affairs for Walmart. “We are humbled to play a part in supporting their mission to provide the best care to children and their families in South Carolina.” The funds will be used to

help purchase new monitors for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). McLeod Health currently serves most of the critically ill babies in the Pee Dee and Grand Strand. Specialized transport rushes them from less-equipped hospitals in North and South Carolina to the 40bed NICU in Florence. The care that McLeod Health provides to these tiny patients is outstanding. However to continue providing excellent care, the hospital is in need of new monitors that track each baby’s condition continuously.

Florence Track Club produces two All Americans

FMU’S DETREK BROWNING

PBC Hoops Player of the Week Francis Marion University junior point guard Detrek Browning was named the Peach Belt Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the week of Dec. 5-11. The Columbia native tallied a career-high 33 points, seven assists, four rebounds, and four steals in a 99-89 win over the University of Mount Olive on Dec. 6. He connected on 13 of 18 field goal attempts and was 6 of 10 at the free throw line. This is third time Browning has earned PBC Player of the Week accolades following honors in each of his first two seasons. The 2014-15 PBC Freshman of the Year and an All-Conference pick in 2015-16, Browning surpassed 1,200 career points with his effort and currently occupies 14th position on the Patriot career scoring list (1,202 points). He also owns the sixth-highest career scoring average (18.8 ppg) among active players in NCAA Division II. This season, he is currently fifth in the PBC in scoring at 18.9 points per game and is ranked seventh in assists and leads the conference in steals. Francis Marion owned a 3-4 mark heading into last Wednesday night’s (Dec. 14) home clash with St. Andrews University. Browning was an All-State performer at Irmo High School, where as a senior he was also named the AAAA Player of the Year by the High School Sports Report.

HOOVER, ALABAMA – The Florence Track Club (FTC), sponsored by the City of Florence Parks and Recreation, had eight young athletes qualify and move on to the USATF Jr. Olympic National Cross Country Championships. The season began in early September and wrapped up with this culminating event on Dec. 10 at Veterans Park in Hoover, Ala. The athletes worked hard throughout the season to put themselves in contention to move on to nationals. Each athlete had to place in the top 30 (individually) in the regionals. The FTC joined over 4,000 additional athletes from across the country to compete for the “All American” status by placing in the top 25 in each race at nationals. The weekend began with opening ceremonies the night prior to the races. As the sun went down, the cooler temperatures were a bit of a shock to our southern athletes. FTC represented not only Florence County in the opening ceremonies, but also the state of South Carolina and USATF Region 4 (which includes South Carolina, Florida and Georgia.) The morning of the races greeted the anxious athletes with brisk air and bright, sunny skies. The grass was white with a coating of frost as the temperatures dipped into the lower 20s overnight,

ALL-AMERICANS – KAYLANNA BURROUGHS, DARRIAN COLE and remained there during the early morning races. As spectators and athletes arrived, the course was buzzing with excitement and last minute strategy talk as the athletes prepared for the races. The day started at 9 a.m. with the 8 and under girls’ race and continued through 1:30 p.m. with the 15-18 boys’ race. While the competition was stiff, the athletes of the Florence Track Club competed well against the best cross country athletes in the country. Each race consisted of up to 450 athletes com-

peting for the coveted All American spots. This brought a new facet of racing for the athletes to deal with. Not only did they have to run fast, they had to also navigate a narrow course with hundreds of other runners. FTC came away from the weekend with two All American Athletes. Kaylanna Burroughs (2k race) placed 12th in the 8 and under girls’ race with a time of 8:48. Darrian Cole (5k race) placed 25th in the 17-18 girls’ race with a time of 22:42.

Lions and Leos make Christmas brighter for some local youth

West Florence High School Leo members assist a child shopping for clothing

The Florence Evening Lions, South Florence and West Florence High School Leos Clubs combined forces on Saturday, Dec. 3, to entertain and assist deserving children of Florence School District One during the Christmas season. McDonald’s provided free breakfast and $10 gift cards. The participating children watched the arrival of Santa Claus on a fire truck. Santa and his elves then presented each child a gift-wrapped present. The children, chaperoned by Leos, were treated to a $100 shopping spree of clothing items only. Meeting humanitarian service needs for youth is a club priority. Project chairman Lion Waylon Hilley, commented “Money raised during fundraising activities, donations and grants allow Lions to meet pressing needs in our community. Services we provide change and enhance the quality of life for those in need. “Just knowing that we have made a positive impact in someone’s life is priceless,” he added.

Lions’ members thank everyone who contributed and volunteered in making this project happen. Contributions truly help Lions to provide needed services to worthy citizens in our community. Anyone who would like to donate to this and other worthy service initiatives is asked to mail their donation to: Lion Audrey Croshaw, 1907 Cypress Road, Florence, SC 29505. Checks should be made payable to: Florence Evening Lions Club Foundation. The Florence Evening Lions Club meets on first and third Thursday at 7 p.m., Lizard Thicket, 1712 W. Palmetto Street. The club is a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs. They are continuously looking for serviceminded individuals who are willing to volunteer their time for the betterment of mankind.

Trinity-Byrnes honor society members hosted an Angel Tree project for the holidays Students in the National Honor Society at Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School gave back to the community this holiday season by arranging a gift drive for those in foster care through the Florence County DSS. An angel tree was set up in the school halls as students pulled angels off the tree with Christmas gift wishes. The gifts were for boys and girls of all ages, ranging from infants all the way to teenagers. The students at Trinity-Byrnes brought in close to 300 gifts and every wish list was filled. There was an overwhelming amount of joy in the halls due to reassurance that kids and teens in the area will have a great Christmas morning! The angel tree is one of many community service projects that TBCS students took part in this holiday season.

DuPont Retirees donate over $3,800 to four charities The Florence DuPont Retirees Club raised $3,834 this year from donations given during monthly gatherings. Club members made their 6th annual check presentation to four local charities during their Dec. 14 breakfast meeting at Bazen’s Restaurant. Lighthouse Ministries, The House of Hope of the Pee Dee, Mercy Medicine Free Clinic and Harvest Hope Food Bank each received a check for $900. A $315 check was also presented to Lighthouse Ministries to go toward building ramps. These funds came from the Sid Jordan

Memorial Fund. Stephen Love commented that the group has given $16,412 to local charities since 2011.

Teacher gets grant Moore Intermediate’s Shellia Anderson received funding through Donors Choose for her grant, “An Apple a Day Keeps the Boredom Away!” The funding provided an iPad and a collection of books for her classroom library. The total received was $600.

State Treasurer Curtis Loftis, Rep. Robert Williams discuss financial literacy with Brockington students

CARVER ELEMENTARY STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO READ BY A WILSON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT

Wilson students participate in Read to Succeed Program at Carver Wilson High students read to Timrod Elementary classes as a part of the “Read to Succeed Program.” In keeping with South Carolina’s Comprehensive Reading Reform Policy (ACT 284 Read to Succeed/R2S), Carrie Simmons, Literacy Coach at Timrod, initiated a

Read-to-Succeed Reading Buddies Program to assist students in reading. In partnerships with Francis Marion University’s softball team, retired veteran teachers, and Wilson High School students, Timrod’s students are receiving staterequired Tier II and Tier III

TIMMONSVILLE – South Carolina Treasurer Curtis Loftis, along with South Carolina’s Future Scholar 529 College Savings Plan and SC Economics, partnered with education technology company EverFi Inc., to bring an interactive, web-based financial management program to every elementary and middle school in the state of South Carolina at no cost to taxpayers. This webbased program focuses on budgeting, career planning, saving, and investing through 3D gaming, animations, and video. The Future Scholar Financial Literacy program was launched in 2015 and brings critical financial education to students across the state. More than 8,300 students have already benefited from the Future Scholar Financial Literacy program in the

2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school year. The results: students’ financial knowledge increased by an average of 36% after completing the course, based on pre- and post-assessment data collected in the 2015-2016 academic year. Last week, Loftis and State Representative Robert Williams visited third grade students at Brockington Elementary to reinforce the concepts learned in the online program. “Young people face an overwhelming number of complex financial decisions, yet research shows they lack the knowledge needed to make sound choices. Saving for college is perhaps one the most important financial decision for young students. The goal of this program is to help children realize just how important it

is to learn how to use these financial tools,” said Treasurer Loftis. “Three out of four young people cannot answer basic financial questions. On top of that, only 16 percent of middle school students think they will need student loans to finance higher education, when in reality almost 70 percent will graduate with student loan debt. This is a national problem that we are working hard to address,” said Williams. For more information on how your school can get started using the Future Scholar Financial Literacy program, go to scfuturescholar.everfi.com.

intervention services and support from a combination of highly-effective partners. These partnerships serve as an additional resource to promote literacy beyond the classroom for Timrod’s students.

Cold weather tips from SCE&G SCE&G also offers the following cold weather energy efficiency tips: • Set the thermostat at 68°F or lower during colder months. Each degree above 68° can significantly increase heating costs. • Be aware that if you have a heat pump, you should only move the tem-

perature up 1 to 2 degrees at a time until you reach the desired temperature setting. This helps avoid activating the auxiliary heat mode (heat strips) unnecessarily. • Caulk around windows and replace old weather stripping around doors to keep the cold air out. • Consider installing a

programmable thermostat that automatically lowers the temperature even further than 68° overnight or while no one is at home. • Check air filters. Dirty air filters increase your energy usage and damage your heating system. Be sure to use filters approved for your specific system.

New healthcare administration degree flourishing at FMU Francis Marion University’s new Healthcare Administration major isn’t typical. The inaugural graduating class, which marched Saturday in FMU’s Fall 2016 commencement, boasts 27 students. That’s third most in any major among the more than 300 graduates at this fall’s commencement, and there are 113 additional students in the

program, set to graduate over the next few years. That’s quite a feat for a program that’s less than a year old, but it’s not surprising to Dr. Ruth Wittmann-Price, Dean of FMU’s School of Health Sciences. Students are migrating to the new major because it’s in a hot field filled with promise. Healthcare Administration opened a new door

into that field. “Healthcare organizations, inpatient and out-patient, are using baccalaureate prepared people in managerial positions to run units and departments,” WittmannPrice says. “It’s a good alternative program if they don’t want to be a clinician. There are jobs available for them. “They like the environment,

and know that it’s steadily growing,” adds Wittmann-Price. “They also know that a lot of the healthcare environment is moving from the in-patient to the out-patient. All of these out-patient centers have managers. Managers that do budgeting, scheduling, order supplies, and those managers are typically baccalaureate prepared people that have to have a good

basic knowledge of healthcare, finance, psychology, and sociology – what’s needed in healthcare.” Healthcare Administration incorporates many courses which already existed in FMU’s nursing program and School of Business. So, offering the degree was a natural for the university’s administration.

The online aspect of the degree – it’s FMU’s first entirely online degree – offers flexibility that allows students to work or participate in extracurricular activities. That’s appealing to some students. Others are enamored by the fact that it opens the door to opportunities within the healthcare field, but without being a clinician.
