Matthew wreaks havoc Hurricane Matthew wreaked havoc on the eastern Carolinas and the Pee Dee area as it moved along the U.S. southern coast last weekend. Heavy rain started early Saturday morning continuing for about 12 hours, dumping 11 to 21 inches of water in the Pee Dee and causing flash flooding on rivers, roads and homes. Strong winds snapped and uprooted trees and power poles. Trees downed numerous power lines. Officials at Duke Energy compared the destruction to Hurricane Hugo in 1989. As of Monday morning, the death count for Florence County was two. Approximately 149,000 Duke Energy customers in South Carolina lost power and about 45,000 of those customers are in Florence County. Power was not expected to be restored until Sunday for many of those customers.

WAYNE STREET, between St. Anthony Dr. and Bellevue Dr., is flooded with a tree down and laying across it as well.

The Continental Marines were established on Nov. 10, 1775 by the Second Continental Congress. The Marine Corps began celebrating its birthday in 1921 when Marine Corps Commandant John A Lejuene sent an official message to the troops to be read on Nov. 10 or when received. The birthday has been celebrated every year since. The Marine Corps League and families are invited to attend the birthday ball. The meal will be prime rib or chicken. The cost is $25 per person. The event will be held at the Elks Lodge, 1020 2220 W. Jody Rd. After the dinner, the

Deaths W.M. WATERS, THE HOME FURNISHER was the exclusive agent for Hoosier Kitchen Cabinets, Bernstein 3-piece beds, Buck’s Stoves and Ranges, Bohn Syphon Refrigerators, Globe-Wernicke Book Cases and Brenlin Window Shades and was a funeral director and embalmer. Now called the Waters Building, it is located downtown on S. Dargan Street. Photo is from an ad in the 1920 Florence City Directory.

RE/MAX Professionals plans move downtown RE/MAX Professionals plans to occupy the entire second floor above the Town Hall Restaurant, located on the corner of Evans and Dargan Street, known as Kress Corner. Broker/owner Adam Crosson said the move is targeted for January. The new space will more than double the real estate offices currently on Cherokee Road. With over 2,000 square feet presently, the downtown location offers

around 6,000 square feet of space. “We are in growth mode and want to be a part of the renaissance downtown, while making a statement in the real estate market,” Crosson said. Not only will the heart-ofdowntown location provide a fun place to be, it offers a much bigger space and the best spot in town, he commented. Plans for the new space call for an open concept with

KRESS CORNER hybrid design, featuring partition glass walls. Currently RE/MAX has 22 agents. The larger space will be able to handle 40 to 45 agents and staff, Crosson said. “We expect the new space to attract more agents very quickly, he commented. Plans for the move also include adding another loan originator and a marketing firm to handle videotaping and photos, and provide packages for the agents.

Conflicts are inevitable By Kaye Singleton

“Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou will take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.” Genesis 13:9 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible. His nephew, Lot had insisted on leaving home and following Uncle Abe. Things went well for both Abraham and Lot for awhile, but one day Abraham realized changes must be made. He handled their conflict in the right way. He communicated with him and talked the problem out. He modeled conflict management. Abraham didn’t push him out rather he gave him a choice. He could have told him to get lost or go back home but we see he was intent on keeping a good relationship with his nephew.

Kaye Singleton

So he told him to choose right or left and he would go the other way. Conflicts are inevitable. Relationships always matter. People have feelings and feelings often cause conflicts. Be considerate when conflicts arise. I often say there are three sides to every story: His, Hers and the Truth. Today I am dealing with conflict. I seek God first for direction. He has the right answer and I am desperately in need of His help. I thank Him ahead of time for giving me wisdom to handle this conflict wisely. His Word always gives clear direction!

Lighthouse Ministries launches Strengthening Families program Nine families from across Florence County gathered on Thursday night to participate in Lighthouse Ministries’ Strengthening Families Program, a program sponsored by a grant from the Children’s Trust of South Carolina. In this 14-week program, families gather for shared meals then attend classes on topics such as stress management, child development, and communication skills. “This program will be instrumental in providing support, education, and mentoring to families,” states Floria Porter, Site Coordinator for the program. The program began on Thursday, Sept. 22 and continues through December. Though it is early in the program, leaders state there are already observable changes within the families participating in the program. Arlisha Bailey, one of the parent class leaders, sees the program as not only a positive for the participating families but for the whole community: “The program will benefit the area by providing families an outlet when they are frustrated. They will see they

aren’t the only person with family concerns. I also feel the program will be an actual visual model of what a healthy family looks like. They learn the importance of dinner time and speaking on hard subjects, especially ones that fall outside their norms.” The Strengthening Families Program is a grant-funded, evidence-based program that is offered in addition to Lighthouse Ministries’ other programs. “We are excited about this partnership with the Children’s Trust of South Carolina and for the opportunity to offer this resource to the families we serve,” says Cecilia Meggs, Executive Director for Lighthouse Ministries. Scott Hill, pastor at John Calvin Presbyterian Church which hosts the program, sees it as a perfect fit for his church: “Showing families how to function together deepens their love and respect for each other. This also builds vital skills for the whole family all through life. What better way to use our energy, our intellect, our kindness, and our love, than to share freely with families what it means to be prized by each

other? I am convinced the Strengthening Families Program is sowing the seeds of resilience and hope for each family that is involved.” Each program session runs 14 weeks. Families are required to attend at least 10 classes in order to qualify for their completion certificate. Classes take place at John Calvin Presbyterian Church in Florence. Families interested in registering for the next session of classes should contact Floria Porter at Lighthouse Ministries by emailing fporter@spiritcom.net or calling 843629-0830. About Lighthouse Ministries Lighthouse Ministries is a faithbased non-profit social service agency that assists Florence County residents with their basic needs when they find themselves in financial crisis.

DARLINGTON – The Pee Dee Land Trust (PDLT) finalized its agreement with Murray Tract LLC on Sept. 22 to permanently protect 1,044 acres of forestland in Darlington County. With over 1,000 acres of forested wetlands, bottomland hardwood forests, pine flatwoods, and cypress-tupelo swamps, the Pettigrew Tract contains significant wildlife habitat for a variety of species. In addition, the protected property is situated upstream of Whipple Landing on Lowther’s Lake, a public access oxbow lake maintained by the SC Department of Natural Resources and utilized by fishermen and paddlers. The agreement will keep the property in large tracts, helping to ensure that it will remain available for growing timber as well

as recreational uses, such as hunting and fishing. Frank Beidler, a representative for the landowners, noted that “Murray Tract LLC is thrilled to be able to partner with Pee Dee Land Trust to help preserve this beautiful land in perpetuity. Special thanks to Tim Dargan, Angus Lafaye (Milliken Forestry), and especially to Seth Cook for putting the pieces together to make this happen.” Through the use of permanent agreements, PDLT and landowners work as partners to ensure that land use activities on private property are limited in order to preserve key conservation values which benefit the public. These values include open space such as rural scenic views along roads and rivers, habitat for wildlife including

game and non-game species, and the protection of farm and forest land to ensure it remains in farming and forestry rather than being converted to other uses. PDLT is proud to have partnered with the South Carolina Conservation Bank to make this important project possible. “We are very lucky in the Pee Dee to be blessed with a beautiful natural landscape. Because of the efforts of the Pee Dee Land Trust and the South Carolina Conservation Bank, another important and beautiful area of our state will be preserved for generations to come,” said South Carolina State Senator Hugh K. Leatherman. David Harper, Executive Director of PDLT, commented that “Lowther’s Lake is a cherished community asset for boating, fishing, and enjoyment of nature. Conservation of the Pettigrew Tract ensures that a significant block of natural and managed forest will continue to

grace the north end of this scenic oxbow lake.” With the Pettigrew Tract as the latest addition, Pee Dee Land Trust has now protected over 24,800 acres in the Pee Dee Region. While remaining in private ownership, the lands protected through conservation easements held by PDLT ensure that special places will be available for farming, forestry, and recreation for future generations. Pee Dee Land Trust (PDLT) works in nine counties of the Pee Dee region in South Carolina: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Marion, Marlboro, and Williamsburg. Its mission is to protect, and to promote an appreciation of, the significant natural, agricultural, and historical resources of the Pee Dee Region through voluntary land conservation and educational programs.

The public option Humorous comments on aging and life just a single payer on installment plan One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Brenda Harrison

By Sally Pipes Obamacare’s government-run insurance markets are collapsing. Insurers are losing millions of dollars – and proposing double-digit premium hikes combined with high deductibles to try to stanch the bleeding. It’s no wonder that exchange enrollment is roughly half what the Congressional Budget Office predicted, 11.1 million instead of 21 million. So what’s the left’s answer to this governmentcaused debacle? More government, naturally. This time, Obamacare’s partisans are calling for a new government-run insurer to compete against private insurers in the exchanges. This “public option” is only a precursor to a full-blown, government-run, single-payer healthcare system. Thanks to Aetna’s decision to pull out of all but four states – and defections by UnitedHealth, Humana, Blue Cross, and others – one-third of the country will have only one insurance carrier to choose from next year. Alaska, Alabama, Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wyoming will have just one insurer per rating region statewide. The people who engineered this mess should be hanging their heads in shame. Instead, many of them are celebrating – not because Obamacare is failing but because they see its failure as an opportunity to push for still more government control over Americans’ health care. “The best argument for a single-payer health plan is the recent decision by giant health insurer Aetna to bail out next year from 11 of the 15 states where it sells Obamacare plans,” said Robert Reich, a former Labor Secretary under President Bill Clinton. But progressives face the same problem pushing single-payer they always have – the public won’t stand for it. So they’re dusting off an old idea that will get them to single-payer without using those words. It’s called the public option. The idea is to have a government-run insurance plan available in every market to compete with private insurers. “The public option is one of those policy ideas that hits the trifecta: simultaneously simple, popular, and effective,” said Yale professor Jacob Hacker. He’s also all but admitted that the public option will invariably lead to single payer. “We’re going to do it in a way that we’re not going to frighten people into thinking that they’re going to lose their private insurance,” he said in 2008. The government can price a public option however it wants and absorb any losses with deficit spending. Private plans can’t do the same; they’ll eventually go out of business. The idea that a public option would be “simple, popular, and effective” is laughable. After all, that’s precisely what Obamacare’s cheerleaders promised that the law would be. Remember? “Just visit HealthCare.gov, and there you can compare insurance plans, side by side, the same way you’d shop for a plane ticket on Kayak,” said none other than President Obama in 2013. The end game is clear. And single-payer health care has been an unmitigated disaster everywhere it’s been tried. The government-run Veterans Health Administration is a monument to waste and inefficiency, where veterans can die on a wait list to see a doctor. In Canada and the United Kingdom, patients suffer from a chronic lack of access to advanced equipment and therapies – and months-long waits for care. The very last thing our nation needs is to move closer to single-payer by implementing a public option. Americans need health reform that empowers doctors and patients – not the federal government.

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends. Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL. The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble..

Editor

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words ‘The’ and ‘IRS’ together it spells ‘Theirs...’ The easiest way to find something lost is to buy a replacement. If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame. The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

Brain cells come and go but fat cells live forever. Life not only begins at forty; it begins to show. It is bad to suppress laughter; it goes back down and spreads to your hips. Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but he/she can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake. You don’t stop laughing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop laughing. Source: Little Known Facts.com

America needs a return to the land It is clear; when it comes to jump-starting the economy and generating jobs and wealth for the average American, we are in quite a fix. After coming out of the great recession, the economy is experiencing anemic growth rate of around one percent, and labor force participation is at a thirty-year low. The problem is proving to be somewhat intractable, despite efforts by centralized government to goose the economic engine through financial manipulation. The economic challenges facing average Americans cannot be solved by ‘big’ government or big business. It is really about time that we look to the past for some solutions. One of the things we should take a hard look at is returning to the land. Around the turn of the twentieth century, almost half of U.S. workers were directly involved in the agricultural sector – whether in terms of growing food or organic materials for textile manufacturing. As late as 1930, farming constituted about 7.7% of the U.S. GDP. Today, less than two percent of American workers are engaged in agriculture. But more importantly, during the heyday of American farming, from 1900-1915, the majority of farm-produced products were consumed on the farm or by the local communities they served – with exportable commodities such as cotton and tobacco playing a supplemental role. Today, large farming operations control huge tracts of farmland that are almost exclusively dedicated to producing off-farm income. And American farming has become inextricably integrated into global commerce. While farming has become less labor intensive and more mechanized and specialized – increasing economies of scale, it has lost some of the more robust features that made it the backbone of the American economy. Notably, American famers around the turn of the century grew at least five different commodity crops on average. Today’s mega-farms

Armstrong Williams Columnist

produce one major crop on average, and agriculture contributes less than one percent of GDP. Farming as a viable profession is dying out – with the average age of an American farmer of 65. And it is becoming a far more extractive industry, returning less than 16% of revenue from farm operations to the farmer. What does this all mean for the average American worker and the U.S. economy in general? First, it means that the core skills needed in farming have become virtually non-existent. Not only are farms largely mechanized, what farming labor remains is largely staffed by foreign workers – including millions of illegal immigrants from south of the U.S. border. As someone who grew up on a family-owned farm in Marion, South Carolina and saw the wealth-building of the many benefits our farm brought to our community, I understand the critical importance of farming as a community-based enterprise. First was the real importance of work ethic and skilled labor. People in our community took pride in being skilled laborers – whether it was shoeing the horses, taking care of the livestock, or planting or harvesting – farm laborers developed specialized skills that made them valuable members of the entire community. The community-supported agriculture model extended to include obviously local markets for a variety of crops – fruits and vegetables, preserves, and meat products. Farming as we knew it did involve some cash crops – we grew and sold tobacco, for example, – but we were far from a specialized farming operation. Farming created jobs, instilled youth with a work ethic, and tied people to

land, family and community. This is a model that Europe has been careful to protect, no matter what the winds of globalization have blown their way. European countries understand the relationship between small scale farming and national identity in ways that America – which industrialized much sooner in its nation’s history, can comprehend. Our kinship with the land we inhabit is diminishing. Today’s school children are far more likely to recognize brand labels than common native plants. And yet our continued economic growth will require almost seventy percent more food production by 2050. This is a major overlooked opportunity for today’s workers. Farming is in need of just as many innovations as other industries – disruptive innovations in crop quality, soil quality, yield and distribution. There are medical breakthroughs ready to be discovered in the observation of plants. But this will require a major ramping up of the farming skills of American people. Farming was once a major source of scientific advancement and industrial innovation in this country. The Cotton Gin, invented by Ely Whitney, literally changed the economic fortune of the United States almost overnight. George Washington Carver developed hundreds of patents over chemical compounds derived from corn and soybeans. He was constantly urging close exploration of nature, saying “anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.” Congress should really consider including provisions in the Farm Bill that provide incentives for young people to enter into farming. We should also allow guest workers from other countries to come to the U.S. to grow the labor pool and help transmit valuable lost skills to American farm workers. These investments must be made with a focus on innovation and sustainability. We do not need more large farming operations.

We as a nation really have no choice but to return to a community model of farming. The reasons for this much needed shift in emphasis are clear. First, we are going to have a greater need for food in the future, and this cannot be secured with large cash crop operations. Second, focusing on soil yields and innovations in farming that will improve quality require that more people enter the field, not less. Increasing the labor intensity of farming may seem to be less efficient up front than highly mechanized processes. But on the back end it could yield major technological breakthroughs that will help us meet our future needs.

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) and the S.C. Coon Hunters Association are hosting a series of nine youth coon hunts around the state starting in October and ending in February. The hunts will serve as regional qualifying events for the State Championship Youth Hunt and are designed to teach ethics and sportsmanship through low-intensity competitive events. The top two hunters in both age groups (six to 13 and 14 to 17) and the sportsmanship winners in both age groups will qualify for the annual South Carolina Youth Raccoon Hunting Championship, scheduled for March 4, 2017, at Webb Wildlife Center in Hampton County. Competitors are allowed to hunt in as many youth coon hunts as they choose and all events are free of charge. In accordance with competition hunt rules, no raccoons are killed during the competition and guns are not be allowed. Each potential participant should contact the sponsoring clubs for information regarding specific hunts, and they are also responsible for bringing a coon dog. Competitors need to be able, with minimal assistance from an adult, to acknowledge when his or her dog strikes and trees. Winners are

determined based solely upon the dogs’ abilities to strike a trail and tree a raccoon. The hunt awards points based upon the order the contestants interpret their dogs’ barks to identify when the dogs “strike” the raccoons’ trails and when their dogs have “treed” the raccoons.

AIM helping grow boys into Godly men BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. A group of dedicated volunteers “aim” to make a difference in the lives of young boys, helping them to grow into the men God intends for them to be. Pastor Jeremiah Merritt, founder and CEO, and Phillip Robinson, director, lead a program called AIM, Arrow into Manhood, that is conducted at Southside Middle School on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. This mentoring ministry is geared for boys in grades six through 10. The program is held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and includes lunch. The program is free, but there is a $15 registration fee per semester to hold each spot. It is limited to 50 boys per semester. The program has a 501c3 status and is funded by fund raiser and community donations. It is staffed by 20 volunteers, including eight mentors who have been background checked. A volunteer lunch team brings the meal. AIM gets its name from and follows Psalm 127:4-5 which says “As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

PHILLIP ROBINSON AND JEREMIAH MERRITT DISPLAY AIM T-SHIRT “Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.” Pastor Merritt uses the analogy of arrow (children) and archer (authority adult) to explain God’s plan to the young participants. Children are like an arrow, he says, and their parent, teacher or

adult authority, is the archer. The archer loads his arrow, pulls back with correction until he is ready and then points it in the right direction to release the arrow to go forth. AIM teaches biblical principles from the Book of Proverbs, focusing on showing honor and submission to adult authority figures. It also

looks at benefits and consequences from one’s actions. AIM sessions begin with knowledge-based teaching with the whole group, and then breaks into small groups to discuss how to apply that principle in their life. Physical activities and games are included during the Saturday sessions. And as a followup, each boy gets

a call from a mentor each week asking how he is doing and offering encouragement. They also talk with their parent or guardian. Each participant receives an AIM activity card which an authority figure (parent, teacher or pastor) signs when he applies one of the principles studied. He gets points and as they accumulate he is ranked as “Soldier of Submission.” The rank starts with private and moves on to private first class, specialist, corporal and sergeant. As the young “soldiers” move up the ranks they are given rewards. When they attain the rank of sergeant they earn a camouflage t-shirt signifying their top ranking. A promotion ceremony is planned for Dec.17 at 11 a.m. and those who have attained sergeant will be recognized with a public display of honor. Special guests expected to attend include Sheriff Kenny Boone. Pastor Merritt started the AIM program three years ago. He had a career in education, affiliated with schools in Charlotte, N.C., Darlington and Florence School District 1. He is now a fulltime pastor Kingdom Life Ministries of Darlington. He began working with kids 15 years ago when he

saw them falling through the cracks, mainly because they were not properly responding to authority. He hosted seminars, and camps, but that was not enough, he said. His goal with AIM is to instill the importance of discipline and correction. Pastor Merritt says the sessions have been so encouraging. “I’m seeing childrens’ lives changing and their desires to want to do good and make us proud.“ He believes much of the improvement is due to their desire for positive feedback. Robinson, the AIM director and a mentor, is a final expense specialist with Lincoln Heritage Life Insurance. The AIM program “pulls the father out of me,” said the father of three. “It matures me and allows me to interact with my son.” Phillip has been amazed at the positive responses he has receiving about AIM, including comments from teachers who have seen student behaviors change and from parents. “AIM has influenced families as well,” he noted, explaining that parents come to him asking for advice and wisdom, and tell him how the program has brought change behavior in their homes.

This school district and community are indeed fortunate to have her as an educational leader.” One of the veteran teachers at Delmae, Velma Wilson, commented on Jolley’s leadership style. “Mrs. Jolley has provided the necessary leadership to take Delmae from one level of success to another. She has worked diligently to create a supportive environment where all stakeholders have worth and experience success.” Curriculum Coordinator Nancy Granath who has worked with Jolley for the past 16 years remarked, “I have marveled at the example that Mrs. Jolley has set for all who have entered our doors. She has consistently set expectations for high academic achievement and insisted that our students show good character. She has welcomed conversations with any and all stakeholders, even when the

conversations were tough to have.” John Collins, Pastor of Grace Baptist Church, a community partner at Delmae said, “Without question, Mrs. Jolley personifies a love for people. Through my observation of her interaction with her teachers, staff, students and her parents over the past 16 years, she demonstrates compassion and concern.” Collins added, “Her love for children is not only for their academic success, but for their success as human beings, treating all of them with dignity and fairness even to the smallest detail.” Under Jolley’s leadership the school has been recognized with a host of academic awards, and as a result of the school’s success with data-driven decision making, Jolley and staff members at Delmae have been asked to share the school’s successes with educators at local, regional and national conferences. Jolley is one of three principals in Florence One receiving nominations for the Principal of the Year Award by colleagues in Florence One. She emerged as the Florence One Principal of the Year after an interview session conducted by peers and school administrators. Jolley will now represent Florence One in the South Carolina Association of School Administrators Principal of the Year Program.
