City announces hurricane cleanup plan City of Florence has announced the plan of action for the next phase of the clean-up of the city from the impact of Hurricane Matthew. “Our top priority is to ensure that the needs of our residents and businesses are being addressed timely. It is also important for our residents to know what the City can and cannot assist them with. We hope that the next phase of our disaster relief plan will provide clarification and much needed resources to the people of Florence,” stated Drew Griffin, Florence City Manager. The core role of local government is to operate as a resource for its citizens. While there are many issues that have impacted our residences and our businesses during this natural disaster that we are unable to resolve, our goal is to provide a consistent flow of communication and a central hub for resources. Residents are encouraged to visit www.cityofflorence.com/ nextphaseflorence.aspx. A video update from Florence City Manager, Drew Griffin with the latest updates will be posted every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. The update will be on the City website and City social media platforms. “Hurricane Matthew had a major impact on our City. I am proud of our amazing city staff that has worked around the clock to help our citizens. This next phase will take our communication and our outpouring of information to the next level. In order for our citizens and businesses to rebuild, we must maintain the highest level of communication with the people in Florence,” stated Mayor Stephen Wukela.

How to handle insurance claims CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Hurricane Matthew has caused several deaths, severe flooding, power outages and massive property damage throughout the Carolinas. Carolinians have been dealt a host of challenges as they return home to face the damage left behind by the storm. “Hurricane Matthew inflicted major damage across the Carolinas,” said Jim McCafferty, president of the Members Insurance Company, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of AAA Carolinas doing business in North Carolina. “Our Hurricane Task Force, which includes adjusters and appraisers, is standing by to assist in any way we can to those affected by this devastating storm.” AAA Tips on Insurance Coverage: Wind-related damage to a house, its roof, its contents and other insured structures on the property is covered under standard homeowner’s insurance policies. Wind-driven rain that causes an opening in the roof or wall and enters through this opening is also covered. If your tree falls on your house, your insurance will cover removal of the tree and home repairs due to damage. If your tree falls on your neighbor’s house, your neighbor’s homeowner’s policy would provide insurance coverage. The same holds true if your neighbor’s tree falls on your home; you file a claim with your own insurance company. If a tree falls in your yard, but doesn’t hit anything, you would pay for its removal in most cases.

Additionally, if a tree on your property is weak, damaged, or decayed, but you do nothing about it, and it crashes down, you could be held liable for damages. Water that seeps into a home from the ground up is considered flooding and would be covered by flood insurance, which is provided by the National Flood Insurance Program and a few private insurers. Flood insurance is available to both homeowners and renters. Flood damage is not covered by standard homeowners or renters insurance policies. Homeowner’s policies also include additional living expenses–in the event a home is severely damaged by an insured disaster, this would pay for reasonable expenses incurred by living elsewhere while the home is repaired. Homeowner’s policies may include additional living expenses–in the event a home is damaged by a covered peril. This would pay for reasonable expenses incurred by living elsewhere while the home is being fixed. Physical damage to a car caused by heavy wind, flooding, or fallen tree limbs is covered under the optional comprehensive portion of an auto policy. AAA Tips on Auto Insurance Claims: Car owners should contact their insurance company to determine the extent of coverage before seeking repairs. Take photographs of any visible damage. Any vehicle sustaining flood damage should be fully inspected before being allowed back on

the road. Mechanical components, computer systems, engine, transmission, axles, brake system and fuel system impacted by water contamination may render the vehicle unfit to drive and in many cases vehicles sustaining significant water damage will be determined to be a total loss. AAA Tips on Homeowners Insurance Claims: The first step to recovery is inspecting your home for damage and notifying your insurance company as soon as possible. Prepare an inventory and take photographs of damaged property. Store undamaged property in a protected place if possible. Cover broken windows and other holes to prevent further damage. If carpet is soaked, remove the carpet and the carpet pad. Keep a two-foot square piece for the claims adjuster. Look for hazards such as broken or leaking gas lines, flooded electrical circuits, submerged furnaces or electrical appliances and damaged sewage systems. If found, contact a licensed professional as soon as possible. Proceed with extreme caution as you inspect your basement. There may be hazards from electrical lines and heating units. If your basement has flooded, do not pump it out all at once. Remove about one-third of the water per day. The wet ground surrounding your basement may cause the floors to buckle and the walls to collapse.

groups. Klay will be joined at the festival by award-winning authors Angela Flournoy, Aimee Nezhukumatathil and Catherine Pierce. FMU faculty chair and English professor Rebecca Flannagan organizes the event with a committee of faculty members from the Department of English. She says this year’s event will be a momentous one. “We are excited to have fiction writers Phil Klay and

Angela Flournoy whose award-winning books will be taught in our composition and literature classes,� says Flannagan. “Our poets Aimee Nezhukumatathil and Catherine Pierce will be featured in creative writing and literature classes, as well. We have a great line-up of young writers whose works will resonate on both the personal and political level.� Redeployment (The Penguin Press) is a collection of short stories that takes read-

ers to the front lines of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In his book, Klay explores the complex feelings of brutality, faith, guilt, and fear that a soldier experiences during war, while also revealing the isolation and despair that can accompany a soldier’s homecoming. Redeployment won the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction and the 2015 Chautauqua Prize. Klay is a graduate of Dartmouth College and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps.

He served in Iraq’s Anbar Province from January 2007 to February 2008 as a Public Affairs Officer. Klay received his MFA from Hunter College. Flournoy’s debut novel, The Turner House, was a finalist for the National Book Award and a New York Times notable book of the year. The novel was also a finalist for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction and an NAACP Image Award. She is a National Book Foundation “5 Under 35� Honoree for 2015. Flournoy is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she received an undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California. She has taught at the University of Iowa, The New School and Columbia University.

Bring the family for a day of fun and top it off with a special ACO Cornhole Tournament – the ACO Pecan Classic III. “The Pecan Festival is a great place to run a cornhole tournament. This is our third trip back and each year tops the last,” said Frank Geers, president of ACO. This year, the cornhole tournament will be held on Irby Street, midway between Evans Street and the main stage. This is a Doubles Play Format for the ACO Pecan Classic with Open Play Cornhole Tournaments in between. Check-in and open play starts at 10 a.m. and runs till noon. At noon, the Pecan Classic III will begin. Following the tournament, open play will be available again for those interested. Sign up early. With a 100 team limit, you will not want to miss out on the fun. The cornhole tournament entry fee is $40 in advance, $60 at the door if space is available. Pecan Classic Tournament is a Single Game Double Elimination Tournament – with final details based on participation. ACO membership is not required. Prizes include $1,500 cash as well as entries into the July 2017 World Slyder Cup and hotel night stay during ACO Worlds XII.

COMPLETE COURSE AT GEHC – From left in back row – Zhenyu Zhang, Amy Cheng, Dale Wolf, Gabriel Saracila, Dipendra Aryal, Zhi Yang, Stuart Feltham, Debbie Mantone, Andrea Luppe, Jian-She Wang, Lance Leviner and Michelle Sansbury.

Korean high school students visit GEHC Nine Korean high school students participated in eight sessions at GEHC for a month during September and October. The students are a senior group from Youngnak u-health High School, Seoul, South Korea. They are Continuing Education students at FDTC. Physics instructor Gowoon Choi is serving as the coordinator of this program. The school is a non–academic track in Korea. They are specialized to train high school students in a specific field. Graduates are expected to get jobs after their high school graduation. All of the previous group

who attended this program were successfully hired in Korea after their return. It is the fourth visit to the USA. Every year, the South Korean Ministry of Education sends 40 groups abroad to expose them to the foreign workforce and culture to develop global competency. This is one of the groups. The APAF (Asian Pacific American Forum) engineers generously volunteered to be mentors for teaching basics of MRI, factory tours, and work ethics. Engineer Zhi Yang is charged for this project. Students enjoyed the whole process and appreciated GEHC and engineers

for showing their hospitality, equipping them with deep knowledge in MRI, giving them an overview of being employed at a global company, and sharing their enthusiasm. The students were invited to a welcome dinner party sponsored by GEHC, wrapped up the program with a presentation session to show what they learned, and returned with gift bags provided from GEHC. “We’re proud of our partnership with FDTC and the Korean outreach program, commented plant manager, Dole Wolf. “It is a tremendous opportunity for our employees to engage in the

Counties eligible for federal assistance South Carolina homeowners and renters in 15 additional counties are now eligible to apply for disaster assistance, from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), for damage and losses sustained as a result of the Hurricane Matthew storms and flooding that began Oct. 4. President Obama signed an amendment, on Oct. 17, adding the following counties to his previous major disaster declaration for Hurricane Matthew, making federal funding available to individuals and households. Darlington and Florence counties are eligible for individual assistance under a declaration signed by the President on Oct. 14. South Carolina homeowners and renters in desig-

nated counties who had damage to their homes, vehicles or personal property as a result of the storms are eligible to apply for FEMA assistance. Disaster assistance may include grants to help pay for rent, home repairs to primary residences, uninsured and underinsured personal property losses, and medical, dental, childcare and funeral expenses caused by the disaster. There are a number of ways survivors may apply for FEMA assistance: • Online at DisasterAssistance.gov • Download the FEMA Mobile App at fema.gov/ mobile-app • Phone 800-621-3362 (FEMA). Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service

may also call 800-621-3362. Persons who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability and use a TTY may call 800-462-7585. • The toll-free numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Multilingual operators are available.

community and the broader world at the same time. I think everyone who participates is rewarded with a great teaching and mentorship experience and GE gets the benefit of broadening the skills of our employees. “If we can teach the science of what we do to bright high school students, it makes it easier for us to translate it to all of the people we work with internally and externally. We believe the whole program to be a win-win-win for GE, FDTC, and the students. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.”

AARP meeting

The local AARP chapter will meet on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 9:45 a.m. in the Leatherman Senior Center. The guest speaker will be Debbie Haliscak of the Emergency Room Care at Carolinas Hospital.

Library hosts teen contest The Florence County Library will host a favorite teen genre contest on Nov. 1 from 2-4 . Teens can cast their vote for their favorite genre and debate their rivals.

VIEWPOINT

Lessons for all our schools in S.C. By Phil Noble From the very beginning, you know this school is different: the young children bound out of the cars with excitement and run to hug the principal. He greets each student by name and then they scamper into the school building full of laughter and excitement. Inside, the walls are crowded with lots of kids’ art work, pictures of students receiving awards, inspirational quotes from Steve Jobs and the likes and pennants from the teachers’ college hang outside every classroom door. “Let’s start with kindergarten and work our way up,” says Dr. Harry Walker of Carolina Voyager Charter School in Charleston. He wears a gaudy tie with kids’ drawings of school busses and he doesn’t call himself principal but ‘School Leader’. He’s a slight, 60-something year old who has a warm face and a ready smile. I immediately liked him. Inside the kindergarten class about two dozen kids are all standing around four big tables – each working on an iPad. They drew a squiggly pathway on a piece of paper and then transferred the design to the surface of their iPad by tracing the lines. At each junction point along the pathway, they move a colored coded block across the iPad and into the intersection to indicate a right turn, left turn or straight ahead. A ping pong ball size robot with flashing lights beeps as it moves along the pathway – and the kids can change the robots’ pathway as it goes. Said more succinctly – these kindergartners are learning how to code software for a computer. Each kid has their own iPad that they keep with them the whole school day and then take home so they can keep playing/learning after school. (They have never lost an iPad and damage has been minimal.) The students also have access to multiple Chromebooks that are available in every classroom. In the next kindergarten class I visited, they were learning Spanish. As we move through the other class rooms and grade levels, there were many variations but it was always the same – the kids were having fun learning, the teachers and teaching assistants (every classroom had both) are young and energetic, everything is colorful and bright (though the building is not new or especially modern) and the energy is palpable – just a few degrees this side of getting out of hand. In short, it’s a bunch of kids and teachers all excited and energized about learning. The Irish poet W. B. Yates famously said, “Education is not about filling a bucket but lighting a fire.” The fire station nearest this school needs to be on high alert. After my tour, I sat down for a talk with Walker and a couple of teachers and here’s what I learned about the school: The school is in its third year and began with just 24 students; it now has 191 students in grades K-4 with an additional grade to be added each year until they get to 8th. It is a public charter school of the Charleston County School District. There is no admissions test or requirements. All students are chosen by lottery and the racial mix is roughly 50/50 with a few Hispanic and Asian children added in. Their school day is one hour longer than most public schools; they begin at 7:40 and end at 3:40. They don’t have school busses so parents are responsible for dropping off and picking up their children. Their strategy is “tech in everything, but not all the time.” They use technology focused on students’ exploration and creativity – and as a diagnostic tool to design an individual learning path for each student. But, the children only have about 90 minutes of screen time throughout the school day and they probably spend that much time again with their devices at home and over the weekend. And, they are very selective in the technology that they do use. “We don’t use white boards,” said Dr. Walker. “They are very interactive for the teacher but for the students, it’s still kids sitting in rows watching the teacher at the front of the room – and they are very expensive.” So, are these kids learning; what about test scores? Walker said that unlike many schools, they don’t really do any student preparation for tests. Too much testing and rigid process “suck all the life out of the kids and schools; we focus instead on joy and love – and we want it to go both ways between students and teachers.” And lest one think the school is some sort of throwback to the days of hippie led education of the 60’s, Walker quickly adds that more than 80% of the students perform at or above grade level and test scores are way above the average for Charleston County and the state average. Dr. Walker and his teachers believe that the technology is far less important than parents. His basic belief is that every parent wants the best for their children but many just don’t know what to do or how to do it. He strongly encourages what he calls ‘courageous conversations’ with parents about their children and what they need. These courageous conversations with parents often involve the difficult issue of dealing with students’ social and emotional learning skills or lack thereof. The teachers agreed that these social and emotional skills are just as important to a child’s success as traditional academic skills. Being relatively new to South Carolina from Maryland (he took a 40% pay cut), Walker said that he thinks there may be something in the culture of South Carolina that makes parents, especially minority parents, reluctant to ask for help. “There seems to be a basic lack of trust on the part of African American parents that the schools really care about their children.” So, are there lessons of Voyager School that are relevant for other South Carolina schools? Yes, but just as no two students are alike, so too no two schools or communities are exactly alike. However, there seems to be three big takeaways from the Voyager experience that can be of value to schools all across the state. There are no silver bullets. As Dr. Walker and his teachers are quick to say, there is no silver bullet as no one size fits all for all students in all schools. This is why the tech enabled individual diagnostic tools and individual learning paths for each student are so important. Money is not the answer to all the problems, but a certain amount is necessary. Although iPads and Chromebooks sound expensive, they are really only a tiny fraction of what most schools have to spend, it is a question of priorities. Unfortunately, many schools in South Carolina, especially in rural areas, don’t even have what is required for “minimally adequate.” Don’t focus exclusively on academic attainment and test scores at the expense of parental involvement and social and emotional learning. At Voyager they believe that also focusing on parents and non-academic skills will result in more student driven learning which will ultimately be more effective and long lasting. As for me, like the students, teachers and staff at Voyager, I had a lot of fun at this school and clearly they have proven that real learning can and should be fun. And, as for the future of education in South Carolina, I’m betting on these kindergarten kids who are learning today how to speak Spanish and how to code.

Solution Sundays: breaking bread together By Sen. Tim Scott The beauty of America is that we are a melting pot. People come from all over the world seeking the opportunities and freedoms that we, as Americans, take for granted. Of course, there are times where we fall short of living up to the principles and ideals that led to the founding of our country, but it is in those times that we must be strong and stand together. After all, if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand (Mark 3:25). If we go any other place in the world, we are not seen as black, or white, or Asian, we are seen as the nationality listed on our passport: United States of America. We must

promote that idea at home; the idea that although we look different, we are all Americans entitled to the same freedoms as the rest of our countrymen. A couple of months ago, my friend from Oklahoma, Senator James Lankford and I asked the American people to join us and take part in something we call “Solution Sundays.” Solution Sundays is a request for you to invite a person of a different race into your home to have dinner. This may not seem like a radical idea, but most Americans have never dined with a person of another race. This being the case, there is little wonder why stereotypes exist. If we do not interact with those who are different than us, there is

no way to bridge the gap and heal the racial tensions that currently exist in our society. It is human nature to look for differences and separate ourselves from one another based on those differences. Actively choosing to step outside of your bubble means that you are choosing to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. If you know someone personally, you are more likely to understand their perspective, their background, and their thoughts on the challenges we face. In the long run, breaking bread together is just a simple request. There are still many things that we must take care of to fix the disenchantment that many Americans feel;

however, this is not something that our government can fix. There is no legislation that we can pass and no magic wand that I can wave to right all of the racial problems in our country. This must be a conscious effort made by individuals seeking to build a more perfect union. It is time that we realize we are one country, made up of one people, working to ensure opportunity for all. I truly believe that if you sit down with someone who looks different or has a different background than you and have a meal, you will find more similarities than you ever imagined possible.

Thumbs up to our community! It’s been a remarkable few weeks at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee Area. In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, some of our Clubs were able to reopen and provide safe and constructive activities for children whose schools were still closed. Because of power outages, our usual source of lunches and snacks was unable to provide food for those attending. But a group of teachers and other personnel from Florence School District One stepped into the breach. Knowing that their students might not have anything to eat, they gathered snacks, drinks, and sandwich fixings, met at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and assembled over 200 bag lunches to feed these hungry kids until schools could reopen. Our thanks to the church for providing a space for the project, and to all of the FSD1 personnel who helped, especially Richard McCabe, the organizer of this much needed

and much appreciated donation. Another awesome group of visitors were the “Lowe’s Heroes,” who came to the Florence Club with several large items for us to use at our Clubs: metal shelving, utility carts, and a large storage box full of recreation items such as footballs and hula hoops. They also left staff with two toolboxes full of handy tools to use for repairs around the various Club facilities. On Oct. 19, America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses (ABCE) set up at the Florence Boys & Girls Club to conduct a vision screening for over 100 youngsters. About 40 were then referred to the ABCE local office for further screening, where they will also get free lenses and frames, if needed. Good vision is so important to school success, and we appreciate this very important partnership between ABCE and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Finally, on Oct. 20 a

whole team from the Florence Kids Foot Locker store came with a DJ, door prizes, and a check for $5,000 from the Kids Foot Locker Foundation! Kids got t-shits and water bottles just for being there, and five lucky youngsters won a pair of athletic shoes of their choosing. The event was the culmination of an instore check-out campaign called “Add-A-Buck,” where customers donated $1, $3, or $5 at check-out throughout the month of September. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee Area was one of only 10 lucky clubs nationwide that each received this generous donation. Thanks to all of these businesses who gave generously of their time, talent, and treasure to make life better for so many of the kids in our community!

Florentines earn medals at Children’s Games Two Florence natives, Zoe Cauthen and Rebecca Liu, won the Bronze Medals in the Girls’ Tennis Doubles in The International Children’s Games (ICG). This year’s games were held in New Taipei City, Taiwan, in July. Cauthen, a student from Florence Christian School, and Liu, a student from Wilson High School, were part of the Team Florence 2016 delegation at this international sports event. The International Children’s Games (ICG) is an international Olympic sanctioned event. Each year children from around the world, ages 12-15, compete in a

Chronic pain is a prevalent problem that exacts a significant toll on society. For many chronic pain patients, the analgesic efficacy of long-term opioids is limited. Moreover, chronic exposure to opioids can result in opioid misuse, addiction, and risk of overdose. As such, non-opioid treatment options are needed. Evidence suggests that non pharmacologic intervention can disrupt the risk chain linking chronic pain to prescription opioid misuse.

The use of supplements and herbs has flourished in the management of chronic pain. Pain management is part of the service we provide for our functional medicine patients. Chronic pain is caused by chronic inflammation, which has underlying causes rooted in diet, toxic exposure, stress, lifestyle issues; the issues functional medicine addresses in all our assessments and treatments. The chronic medical problems caused by functional imbalances also manifest as chronic pain.We extend our functional medicine services for pain management to patients with chronic pain who are not satisfied with their current pain management.

Cheraw survivor encourages women to be screened for breast cancer CHERAW – Judy Quick had her mammogram screenings performed annually and often practiced the recommended habit of selfbreast examination. She never found any indication of lumps or abnormalities. In April of 2013, Judy was in the yard feeding her German Shepard, Cooper, when he suddenly jumped up and pawed her violently in the chest. As she reached to rub the sore area, she felt a very large, hard lump underneath the skin of her breast. “I thought that it was weird that he would do that,” she said. “It was the first time he had ever done that. He must have sensed that something was not right, and I am glad he did. “I’m sure eventually I would have found the lump through my self-exam, but the key word is eventually,” continued Judy. “This is the type of cancer that progresses rapidly, so timing played a huge role in my outcome.” Judy immediately contacted Dr. Salim Ghorra, a General Surgeon with McLeod Health Cheraw, to make an appointment. “He is a very nice person and extremely approachable. I think highly of him as a patient, as an employee and as a friend,” said Judy who also works with Dr. Ghorra, Judy has been assisting surgeons at McLeod Health Cheraw for 39 years and the last 13 with Dr. Ghorra. Dr. Ghorra ordered a mammogram and ultrasound. He then performed a needle biopsy in the office. The relatively pain-free procedure consists of a surgeon numbing the skin and inserting a needle to extract tissue from the breast to be tested in the pathology lab. Dr. Ghorra sent the tissue to the lab on Friday and gave Judy the results on Monday. “Waiting for the results over the weekend was not unbearable, and I was not worried because I have tremendous faith,” said Judy. When she received the diagnosis of breast cancer Judy decided that she would not feel sorry for herself and succumb to cancer. She would do everything she

could to survive. “My sister, Cindy, found out about a week before I did that she had breast cancer, too,” said Judy. “We were just getting over the shock of her diagnosis when I was given the very same news.” Judy and Cindy faced battling cancer together. “We were surprised because we both had annual mammograms, there was no history of cancer in our family, and we had no physical symptoms,” explained Judy. The good news for the sisters was that this form of cancer has a high cure rate if detected early. “According to the blood tests, we both had a type of cancer that is caused by environmental factors,” said Judy. In need of additional treatment to remove the cancer, Dr. Ghorra referred Judy to Dr. Sreenivas Rao, an Oncologist at the McLeod Center for Cancer Treatment and Research in Florence. She said Dr. Rao told her everything to expect during her cancer treatment journey. “He drew me a diagram on a piece of paper so that I would understand what was going to happen to my body during my mastectomy and chemotherapy treatments. “Many doctors would not take the time to do that,” said Judy. “Dr. Rao was such a huge source of support during my battle with cancer and continues to be to this day.” Dr. Ghorra and Dr. Rao worked together to execute the best plan of action to eradicate the cancer cells from Judy’s body. Cindy did not have to undergo chemotherapy treatments because her cancer was detected much earlier than Judy’s. “She had to undergo a mastectomy, whereas I had a mastectomy plus six rounds of chemotherapy,” said Judy. On the subject of treatment, Judy said chemotherapy was not that bad for her. “I was actually able to continue working except on the days that I received treatment.” Cindy would accompany Judy to Florence, and they would make the best of their time together by going out for dinner after Judy’s treat-

DR. SALIM GHORRA WITH JUDY QUICK ment. “I could not have gotten through this time in my life without the support of my family. Cindy came with me to each chemotherapy session, and stayed by my side for six to seven hours straight,” recalled Judy. “When I first started treatment, we went to Dr. Rao’s office across from the hospital, then they moved into the new Cancer Center which is so warm and inviting,” said Judy. “They do everything there to take care of you while you are receiving treatment in an effort to make you as comfortable as possible. “They also have some of the most compassionate nurses that you will ever meet. The nurses went above and beyond for us while we were there,” said Judy. Following her mastectomy in September 2013, Judy was out of work for one month. She says she would have come back much sooner, but Dr. Ghorra would not let her. “He wanted to make sure that I was okay,” said Judy. Today, Judy is in remis-

sion. Every six months she has a follow-up appointment with Dr. Rao for blood work to make sure that her levels are fine. Judy also encourages breast cancer patients she meets through her position at McLeod Health Cheraw. “I give tips on dealing with chemotherapy side effects such as eating yogurt to calm the stomach after treatments, eating molasses to boost iron that may be lost, and drinking Coca Cola to settle your stomach,” she said. Judy is also happy to share her breast cancer experience, because she wants her story to help others who are dealing with the very same fears that she faced such a short time ago. “I talk to women who have just begun their battle with cancer. I believe it helps them to know that standing before them is a breast cancer survivor who is doing well, so obviously, there is hope,” added Judy. “My advice to all women reading this is to get your mammograms, do your breast selfexams, and listen to your pets.”

Swamp Fox Quilters to meet The Swamp Fox Quilters Guild monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, Nov. 3, at 9:30 a.m., at John Calvin Presbyterian Church, 2000 Marsh Ave. (corner of 3rd Loop Road and Marsh Ave.) in Florence.

Sherry Woods’ chamber opera, Mara, to premiere here A musical event is about to take place in Florence that has never happened before. The premiere performance of “Mara – A Chamber Opera on Good and Evil,” written by Sherry Woods in collaboration with librettist Stephen Batchelor of Aquitaine, France, will be presented at the Black Box Theater of the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center for two performances on Oct. 28 and 29. Benjamin Woods will serve as musical director, and Ronn Smith of Boston, Mass., will be the producer and stage director. The singers for the opera will be Chris Woods, baritone, Lauren Smith-Woods, soprano, and new FMU music faculty member Paul Thompson, tenor. A small chamber orchestra will accompany the production. As a composer, Sherry Woods

has long accepted the fact that a composing career is a difficult way to make a living unless you happen to be John Williams or one of the lucky, very few who can compose without an extra job teaching music or having a university position. Even Beethoven, with all of his patrons, taught music lessons, and the brilliant Mozart, who often lacked patronage, died leaving financial indebtedness, and was buried in a pauper’s grave. Financial uncertainty is too often a way of life in the arts. However, for this production, Sherry – composer, Stephen – librettist, Ronn – director, and Benjamin – music director, are donating their time and resources to make “Mara” happen, but they cannot ask the same of the performing musicians, singers and orchestra. The costs of renting the Black Box Theater, props, technical

expenses, and payment to the musicians will cost thousands of dollars that will not be covered by ticket sales to the opera. Financial help from businesses and individuals who recognize and support Florence as a vital center of the arts for our region is needed. They would appreciate it if you and some of your friends would consider supporting this exciting project. General admission tickets are $15 and $30. The $30 ticket includes a post performance reception as noted below. Tickets are on sale now at the FMU PAC Box Office, 843-661-4444, or online http://www.fmupac.org. Less than 200 seats are available, so buy early to reserve your seat. Donor categories are: $1,000 – Benefactor – listing in the program, public acknowledgement from the stage prior to the performance, eight reserved seat-

ing tickets and a private reception to meet the artists after the performance. $500 – Sponsor – listing in the program, four reserved seating tickets, private reception to meet the artists after the performance. $250 – Opera lover – listing in the program, 2 reserved seating tickets, private reception to meet the artists after the performance. $100 – Music lover – listing in the program, one reserved seating ticket, private reception to meet the artists after the performance. The reception for donors will be held at the composer’s home, 629 Park Avenue, after each performance. This event is a 501(3)c non profit entity, so all donations above the general admission ticket price will serve as a tax deduction. Checks should be made out to Unfettered Minds with a designa-

tion Mara Opera in the lower left corner. When sending a check, please list how you would like your name to appear in the program, and designate which night you wish to attend. Checks or questions should be sent to: Sherry Woods, 629 Park Avenue, 843-669-1156, 843-6177023 Florence, SC 29501 swoods911@yahoo.com This project is made possible through funding from the Florence Regional Arts Alliance’s Quarterly Grants Program, which is funded in part by a generous award from the South Carolina Arts Commission and the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC and due to the local support of Honda of South Carolina.

Note: Only debris resulting from the hurricane will be collected.

FRANCIS MARION UNIVERSITY NURSING AND HEALTH SCIENCES FACULTY traveled to Orlando last month to receive official honors for FMU’s recent designation as an NLN Center of Excellence. FMU was recognized for promoting pedagogical expertise of its faculty. It’s one of just seven universities so recognized in the country. From left, FMU faculty members Dr. Gaye Douglas and Dr. Annie Muller, NLN President Dr. Anne R. Bavier, FMU’s Dr. Karen Gittings, Dr. Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN CEO for the National League for Nursing, Dr. Ruth Wittmann-Price, Dean of FMU’s School of Health Sciences, and FMU’s Dr. Deborah Hopla, and Ms. Dorie Weaver.

FMU named National League of Nursing Center of Excellence Francis Marion University’s Department of Nursing has been named as one of 15 new Centers of Excellence by the National League for Nursing, the nation’s premier organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education. NLN Centers of Excellence exemplify the League’s core values of caring, integrity, diversity, and excellence, and faculty at desig-

nated institutions bear a responsibility to share their experience, knowledge, and wisdom for the benefit of everyone in nursing education. Schools and programs that receive NLN Center of Excellence recognition must meet high standards of excellence in nursing education. Each school is recognized for a particular trait that is critical to superb nursing education. FMU was recognized for “Promoting the Pedagogical Expertise of Faculty.” It’s one of just seven schools across the nation recognized in that area. The others in that category include Duke, Indiana, Connecticut, the University of LouisianaLafayette, the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center-

New Orleans. Dr. Ruth Wittmann-Price, dean of FMU’s School of Health Sciences and past chair of the Department of Nursing, says NLN recognition is a notable, but highly appropriate benchmark for FMU’s Department of Nursing. “We have a long-standing commitment to providing our students with the very best instruction, which means providing them with the very best faculty,” says Wittmann-Price. “That’s a never-ending process, as any great nursing instructor will tell you. The professors must keep learning, keep improving, right along with their students.” Adds Dr. Karen Gittings, Chair of the FMU Department of Nursing, “Our faculty consistently produces excellent research but they

all consider themselves teachers first. That’s what makes FMU a special place for nursing education.” Dr. Beverly Malone, the CEO of the National League, says the real importance of NLN Centers of Excellence is to set examples for others to follow. “Centers of Excellence raise the bar for all nursing programs by serving as role models of visionary leadership and inclusive excellence that nurture the next generation of nurses,” says Malone. FMU is one of just 56 institutions nationally that has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National League of Nursing. It’s one of just two nursing schools in South Carolina with that designation.
