Director has a heart for helping people BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. Linda Spires joined the staff at Mercy Medicine Free Clinic last month as the new executive director. She replaces Latrelle Fowler, who retired. Spires’ main responsibility is managing the facility which provides medical health care for people whom she says “fall through the cracks” and the homeless. Retired for a year and a half, Linda is an LPN, RN and has a BSN degree. She has been in nursing for 36 years, serving 10 years in dialysis, 10 years in public health, almost five years in hospital nursing, and worked in marketing at HealthSouth. She gave up retirement to work at Mercy Medicine Free Clinic because “That’s my heart, helping the needy,” she said. “I want to be a part of something that helps other people,” she continued. “I feel like I’m just an instrument.” Spires said she loves the Christian aspect of this non-profit organization. Scripture tells us that God’s heart is toward the poor and the needy, she said, adding someone once told her that “You are never more like God (his nature and character) than when you are giving, because God gave.” Demonstrating her love for people, Linda has participated in short mission trips to foreign countries, including three visits to China, the Philippines and Nicaragua. She and her husband John are members of Gospel Temple Worship where he is an elder in outreach. Their church is a Harvest Hope Food Bank agent, hosts a food and clothing ministry monthly, participates in the Parking Lot Ministry on the second Saturday of the month and hosts a food and clothing giveaway the fourth Saturday

LINDA SPIRES IS THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AT MERCY MEDICINE FREE CLINIC of the month. The church is located at 3987 West Palmetto St. Spires was excited to join Mercy Medicine because, “I have come to realize, it’s not about us, but what we can do for others,” she said. Commenting on her new position, she said, “I love the challenges, especially the change.” The clinic has an excellent staff and wonderful atmosphere, she remarked, praising Latrelle for leaving a good foundation. Spires said Mercy Medicine serves Florence and Williamsburg Counties with healthcare. However, they are able to provide dental care to residents of eight counties in this region because the

other six counties don’t have free dental service. Future plans are to expand healthcare services into Williamsburg County, she said. Linda claims that through education about the services they can provide, they have been able to reduce the load in hospital emergency care. She added that Mercy Medicine has partnerships with the local hospitals who provide lab work, x-rays, ultrasounds and diagnostic testing for their patients. Linda was born in West Virginia, but has lived in Florence for 44 years. She and her husband have five children between them and nine grandchildren. Her special

interests include singing and sewing. Linda noted that those who want to be a part of the Mercy Medicine ministry to the less fortunate may participate in their upcoming benefit. It will be held on Friday, Nov. 19, at the Palmetto Peddlers Antique Mall. The benefit will feature Mark Walberg from Antiques Roadshow and include an elegant evening of fine food. music and a silent auction, from 7 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $100 per person and may be purchased at Palmetto Peddler and Mercy Medicine, 843667-9947.

Army Recruiting Command holds Company Change of Command ceremony here The U.S. Army Recruiting Command, Florence Recruiting Company conducted a Company Change of Command ceremony on Nov.10, in the Stokes Meeting Room at the Drs. Bruce & Lee Foundation Library. Capt. Brandon C. Brim officially assumed command of the Florence Recruiting Company from Capt. Marco A. Montoya following the symbolic passing of the guidon of “colors.” The guidon is a flag or pennant that identifies a company, troop or organization. Passing the guidon from one chief to another represents the passing of trust and well being of a sector from one to another, and also perpetuates the seamless tradition of vigilance, service and integrity. While the uniformed officers stood at attention, Capt Montoya passed the guidon to Capt. Brim, the new commander. At the beginning of the ceremony, there was a formation of troops led by SFC Deangelo Green. Outgoing commander, Capt. Montoya, a native of Bryan, Texas, is retiring from active duty after 29 years service. During his remarks, he thanked his fellow sol-

FMU speech pathology program cleared by state Francis Marion University’s growing School of Health Sciences is adding yet another new speciality. FMU will launch a graduate-level Speech Pathology degree program in the Fall of 2018. The university received final regulatory approval from South Carolina’s Commission on Higher Education last week and has named Dr. Freda Wilson as the director of the new program. Wilson, a Greenville, N.C. native, brings more than 40 years of experience to the position, with educational and practical proficiency highlighting her career within the field of speech pathology. Most recently, Wilson was the head of the Department of Communication Disorders and Co-Investigator of the Autistic Children’s Research Project at the King Faisel Specialist Hospital & Research Center in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A graduate of South Carolina State with a bachelor’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology, and a master’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences, Wilson also holds a Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Sciences from the University of Illinois. Speech Pathology will be the fifth masters-level program in FMU’s School of Health Science. It will be just

the third speech pathology program in the state of South Carolina. United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) statistics shows demand for speech pathologists is already high and expected to grow in the years ahead. The Bureau projects a 21 percent increase in the number of open positions from 2014 to

2024. Besides being one of the fastest-growing health sciences fields, it’s also one of the best paying, with annual mean wages starting at $67,850 in South Carolina according to the BLS. The program will feature a partnership with McLeod Health, Carolinas Hospital System, and the Pee Dee

Area Health Education Center, which will assist in the placement of students into clinical positions. Dr. Christopher Kennedy, Francis Marion University’s associate provost for academic affairs, says the program will be a valuable resource to the region and the state. “We haven’t had to sell

this program to anyone,” Kennedy says. “We have students calling — at least a few each week — that are looking to get into the program. We have all the major players coming on board. Everyone is on board.” The initial class will be limited of 20 students, with future classes project to grow to 30 or more as the

program matures. Students will be required to complete 60 credit hours. That’s roughly two years of class work, depending upon the academic experience a student brings with them to the program. Prospective students should have a degree in a field closely associated with pre-med.

McLeod is excited to share our achievements in the most recent hospital ratings by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals. With 24 top honors overall and 12 top honors in Cardiac Care, McLeod is simply your region’s most honored healthcare team.

Demolition of RN Beck Center makes way for new Last year, administration officials of Florence School District One, the City of Florence, and Francis Marion University announced a partnership to renovate two buildings, one being a magnet high school for the arts and/or health sciences at Poynor and the other being the old McClenaghan High School. As a part of the partnership, the current RN Beck Learning Center is being demolished and a new facility will be built in its place. On Thursday, Nov. 10, the FSD1 Board of Trustees held a brief ceremony to announce the demolition process at the site of the RN Beck Center on Sumter Street. Money from the City of Florence’s Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District will allow the renovation and repurposing of these facilities. Mayor Stephen Wukela

E.J. McIver, who represents District 3 on the school board, and Dr. Floyd Creech, director of the FSD1 Office of School Readiness. “The intent of the design is also to balance the look of the existing building into the look of the new school by providing a sloped roof design and other exterior improvements that will help blend the overall look of the existing building into the new facility,” said architect Bowman. “This cooperative effort speaks to areas of interest for the city and for the school dis-

At the ceremony Coleman gave details about the new building: “The new facility will provide an updated learning space for pre-kindergarten students that includes 16 new classrooms and a large multipurpose room, as well as a new playground area located within the interior perimeter of the building. This new center layout will provide a protected playground area that directly connects to the large multipurpose room that has the ability to be subdivided. The look of the new school will use a combination of a traditional red and tan brick with metal roofing that will provide a new look and compliment to the surrounding community,” added Coleman. The demolition ceremony included remarks from S. Porter Stewart, chairman of the Florence One Board of Trustees, as well as remarks by

trict,” said Chairman Stewart. “Certainly with it we can substantially increase the quality of life for citizens in this community, specifically in the northwest community at the RN Beck Early Learning Center by being able to develop a stateof-the-art (facility) here that will be a flagship for this district as we move forward with our comprehensive early childhood program.” School officials say the date for the formal groundbreaking program for the new RN Beck Early Learning Center will be announced later.

VIEWPOINT

OPINION

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016

The election is over, three things to do now By Phil Noble I am writing this column before election day and most people will read this after the results are known. The pundits are predicting that Trump will carry South Carolina by a large margin and Clinton will win nationally by a narrow margin. For me as a Democrat in South Carolina, this is the definition of mixed emotions. But as an American, I’m mostly just glad that the whole disgusting spectacle is over – finally. Analysts will no doubt fill many books with detailed dissections of this election but suffice to say it has been the meanest, lowest, nastiest, divisive, disgusting, foul mouthed, petty, scandalous, xenophobic, cringe worthy, negative, racist, stupid campaign since perhaps 1860. And for us in South Carolina, that election in 1860 set off a chain of events that we (and arguably the whole country) are still suffering from today…but that’s a different story. To me, this election was like a combination of a cheap carnival freak show and a train wreck – it was perversely ghoulish and I knew it was going to all end in a crashing disaster, but I just couldn’t turn away or divert my eyes. And many other Americans felt the same way. By huge numbers, the television ratings for political shows were way up over this time last year: Fox 43%, CNN 98% and MSNBC 127%. In one sense, we in South Carolina were lucky. Because we were not a closely contested battle ground state like North Carolina or Florida, we were spared the multi-million dollar non-stop political avalanche on our phones, door steps and in our mail boxes that buried these states in mean, low, nasty, etc. – see above. But what now? Regardless of who wins, we as a county will be left seriously divided. Two social psychologists, Jonathan Haidt and Ravi Iyer, recently wrote a column for the Wall Street Journal entitled, A Truce for Our Tribal Politics; they provided a succinct analysis of our challenge and they offered two good suggestions for us to productively move forward. “In short, the day after this election is likely to be darker and more foreboding than the day after just about any U.S. election since 1860. Is it possible for Americans to forgive, accept and carry on working and living together? We think it is. After all, civility doesn’t require consensus or the suspension of criticism. It is simply the ability to disagree productively with others while respecting their sincerity and decency. That can be hard to do when emotions run so high.” One small personal example: my father now lives in Decatur, Georgia and they are having a first ever community wide ecumenical service the night of the election to pray for unity and an end to our division. But absent divine intervention, regardless of who wins they will face the daunting task of trying to lead our country with half of the people believing them unfit for the position they hold. So, what can we do? In their column, Haidt and Iyer offer two suggestions and I would humbly like to offer a third. #1 – “Separate your feelings about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton from your feelings about their supporters.” This is essentially the Biblical admonition to separate the sin from the sinner – it’s hard to do but important that we succeed. We as people and as a country cannot afford to be as divided for the next four years as we are now. Another small personal example: a friend of mine works at the corner grocery store that I visit several times a week. But, for more than a year now I have generally avoided stopping in when I know he’s on the cash register so as to avoid an increasingly difficult conversation. I have many good friends who are Trump supporters and I miss not being able to freely talk with them. Multiply my story by 100 million and you see why we are so divided as a country. # 2 – “Step back and take a breath and decide whether in the long run, would you rather change people or hate them.” Change, especially changing minds, is usually a slow and deliberate process. It requires dialogue, patience, good will and an open mind – on all sides. Apply this to grid lock in Congress or in conversations with my friend at the corner store and – well you get the picture. # 3 – A 100 Day Pledge. I would humbly propose that we all individually pledge to ourselves and the country that we will refrain from talking trash about our new president – either Trump or Clinton – for the first 100 days they are in office. Between now and Thanksgiving dinner, we can still rant about things and tell Uncle Fred that he is a brain dead moron because of who he voted for. But, once we get past Thanksgiving and into the holiday season, let’s let the spirt of ‘peace on earth and good will toward men’ take hold. And, once the new president is sworn in on Jan. 20th, let’s give them a chance. We can disagree with their ideas and policies, but let’s all agree to take the pledge and not revert to the senseless rhetoric and divisive harsh language that has caused us all the angst and pain that we have today. If we can all agree to do these three things, then maybe – just maybe – we can get through all of this. And, we will all be a lot happier about ourselves, our neighbors, our state and our country.

Time for humor and laughter Experts say laughter is the best medicine. God’s word says, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 ESV. It’s time for laughter. On motherhood: My nickname is mom, but my full name is Mom Mom Mom Mom Mom. Silence is golden unless you have kids, then silence is suspicious. Mom understand why mama bear’s porridge was cold. You know your life has changed when going to the grocery store is a vacation. On aging: “Sometimes you need to talk to a three year old so you can understand life again.” ....or your young grandgirls! Life is like a hot bath. It feels good while you’re in it, but the longer you stay in, the more wrinkled you get. If you don’t do a lot of stupid things while you’re young, you won’t have funny things to talk about when you’re old.

Brenda Harrison Editor

On life and happiness: Life always offers you a second chance. It’s called tomorrow. A best friend is like a four leaf clover – hard to find, lucky to have. They say money doesn’t bring happiness, but everyone still wants to prove it for themselves. The only sure way to make a computer go faster is to throw it out the window On dogs: You can trust your dog to guard your house but never trust your dog to guard your sandwich. Never stand between a dog and the fire hydrant. What you call dog with no legs? Don’t matter what you call him, he ain’t

gonna come. Analogies: Girls are like phones. They love to be held and talked to, but if you press the wrong button you’ll be disconnected! Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult. – Charlotte Whitton On Facebook: There’s life without Facebook and Internet? Really? Send me the link. Long time ago I used to have a life, until someone told me to create a Facebook account. Most of us don’t realize it, but we’re all part of something much bigger than ourselves, and we’re all connected in some way, not just through Facebook. - Funny quotes: I know the voices in my head aren’t real..... but sometimes their ideas are just absolutely awesome! I love my job when I’m on vacation. A balanced diet means a cupcake in each hand.

A time to heal and get real Now that all the media, the pollsters and the prognosticators have been proven woefully wrong, and as the reality sets in that the United States actually elected Donald Trump as its 45th President, we need to come together and begin to heal the deep wounds that emerged during this epic battle for the heart and soul of America. Contrary to mainstream media belief Clinton was not a shoe-in against Trump, and a silent majority does exist among the American electorate. But it was silent, not because it wasn’t clamoring to be heard – as the massive crowds and impassioned voters who appeared at dozens of Trump rallies attests to. It was silent because we in the media, even in the conservative media, refused to hear them. At first we refused to hear them because they were the uneducated. Then we ignored them because they expressed themselves through non-mainstream media outlets such as Breitbart and Drudge. Finally, we refused to hear them because we desperately wanted to believe that as a nation we could enjoy the fruits of progress without undergoing substantive internal changes to our political system. It was a foolish desire that in the end fueled a false belief - a belief the media was only too happy to indulge at our expense. But now it’s time to open our ears and our hearts to the fact that many in America have been left behind by the status quo. We must confront the reality that the slow and inexorable continental drift away from the core foundational principles that have made our country great exposed fault lines that in the end couldn’t be

Armstrong Williams Columnist

papered over by the portentous screeds of pollsters and pundits. For, to use a sometimes hackneyed term that is nonetheless apropos in these circumstances, ‘the map is not the territory.’ That is to say, many of the assumptions built into the election models and the polls are flawed inputs. At base of all of the models and the supposedly unassailable math are inherent biases that the media cannot see in themselves even if they wanted to do so, and which, in the case of the rise of Donald Trump, they did not want to see. This basic lack of objectivity is dangerous in a world that is so filled with perils, and better it is exposed in the peaceful forum of a U.S. election than on the battlefield against a foreign adversary. And for that reason alone, we should strive to heal the wounds and move forward as a unified nation. Your fellow citizen, your neighbor, your friend and your relative who voted for a different candidate than you did is not your enemy. In fact, by exposing your blindness he or she is actually doing you the highest form of service possible. And just because this time around it was you who happened to have voted for the party who succeeded does not afford you any license to gloat. That is because we have the immediate work of healing and unifying to accomplish, followed in short order by the more difficult and less glamorous work of rebuilding our

nation. Let us not make the cynical mistake of hoping our country fails merely to prove a political point about a particular candidate. We should all wish the President-elect success in the business of governing and leading us towards a greater America. This is not the time to take our respective balls and go home just because we might feel we didn’t win the game. The very fact that we are able to resolve our differences peacefully and fairly in a structured constitutional process rather than through violence and chaos is a win for America and, by example, for the rest of the world too. No one – not even the great Donald himself – thinks we elected a flawless candidate. But that is not so say there is not much to recommend him. He has demonstrated strength, steadfastness, and indefatigable ardor in pursuit of his goal of attaining the high office of the land. He has picked a Vice President in Indiana Governor Mike Pence who is a steady hand. And he listens to the wise counsel of advisors like Dr. Ben Carson and others, who can help deliberate and make prudent decisions. But most importantly, as we are a constitutional republic, the balance of power between the branches act as checks and balances and serve as a bulwark against unfettered ambition. When the political mandate demands we clean house – it is not to evict its residents – but to make the house safer and more hospitable for them. When those in the heartland demand a draining of the swamp, it is not intended to destroy the land, but to rid it of the conditions under which corruption and decay thrive.

But we can only begin to heal once we start to get real. We have to admit that we don’t always know what we think we know, and that there is a higher power guiding these unfolding events. We have to humble ourselves and realize what an awesome responsibility we have to preserve our republic for subsequent generations. And we have to begin to govern in a way that includes the voices those fellow citizens who we have previously tuned out.

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.

Ellen Williams and her two children, Lyrik, 17, and Kamayla, 7, received the keys to their new home in Point South during the Habitat for Humanity dedication ceremony in the early evening of Nov. 9. “This has been a life-changing experience and without God, none of this is possible. I thank you all and love you all,” Ms. Williams told the crowd gathered outside her new home before a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Williams, an employee at Otis Elevator, now has a new three bedroom, two bath home with an interest free mortgage in the South Florence area. The Greater Florence Habitat for Humanity, partnering with Dilmar Oil Company and Assurant, built the home. Williams thanked everyone at Dilmar and Assurant for volunteering their talents and labor and for their financial donations. “It does my soul good to know there’s still so many good people in the world,” she told them. Several local organizations are helping to furnish and decorate the home. The ETA Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority donated a gift card from Kohl’s. The Preceptor Mu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority donated kitchen supplies. Both groups are service sororities.
