Fire rekindles memories of father’s business BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. The fire that destroyed the building at the corner of South Irby and Cedar Streets last week rekindled many memories for Harvey Senseney and family. His dad, H.G. Senseney Sr., built the building in 1941 as the new home for his business, Senseney’s Auto Rebuilders. The Morning News carried two pages of news about the state-of-the-art facility and its grand opening celebration in its Sunday, Feb. 2, 1941, edition. Harvey, about five years old at the time, remembers the Florence High School Band marched down Irby Street for the grand opening. His dad rebuilt wrecked cars. Harvey said the business was especially helpful during World War II when people couldn’t get new cars. He recalls traveling with his dad all over the area looking for parts at car junkyards. In 1946, Mr. Senseney added the Studebaker dealership to his business turning space he rented as a cafe into a car showroom. Senseney’s new auto home in 1941 was built in the art deco style with neon signs. It featured offices, a huge body shop with modern machinery for rebuilding vehicles, a paint shop, an entrance and exit at the rear of the building and plenty of parking in back. A second level had a dormitory-style bunk room for truckers, a separate bedroom, showers and a lounge for truckers and visitors. His dad employed around 20 workers, he said, remembering as a young lad helping his dad pass out cash filled envelopes on pay day. On the left side of the building was an Esso filling station leased by Mr. Garrett. It included an office and a showroom for tires and auto supplies. On the right side of the building was space that Senseney rented to M.J. Merritt for Merritt’s Lunch

HARVEY SENSENEY WITH COPY OF A 1941 NEWSPAPER ANNOUNCING GRAND OPENING OF SENSENEY’S AUTO REBUILDERS Cafe. A newspaper story by C. Green described it as a “cozy little eating space,” adding “no wonder that tourists and home folks speak so highly of it.” The building faced what is also the 301 Highway, which at that time was the only main road between New York and Miami, Harvey noted. It was a busy thoroughfare for tourists driving through town, he noted. There was a section in the shop where a workman recovered seats and made fabric tops for convertibles. There were mechanics who worked on engines, and one worker operated special machinery that straightened bent car frames. It was a great place to explore and play, Harvey recalled. He remembers lying on a creeper and sliding under cars beside a mechanic to see how the vehicles worked.

Most of the streets behind the building were dirt roads, including Cedar Street. His family, which included his mom Orie, older sister Rosalyn (Davis) and brother David, lived nearby on Jackson Avenue in Colonial Gardens. Harvey also remembers two horse stables nearby, one at the corner of Irby and Cherokee Rd. He and his sister had horses in a stable his dad built in back of the auto business and he remembers riding his around the neighborhood, sometimes as far as the Florence Country Club. His sister’s horse was called Dixie and their neighbor, Ann Marie, had one named Gypsy. “The horse given to me was named Chicken,” he remembered laughing. “It affected my personality all my life,” he teased. Another neighbor, Fred Willcox, (Julia Buyck’s brother) had a shet-

land pony which he rode up and down Cedar St., Harvey recalled. As he got older, Harvey performed odd jobs at his dad’s business. He remembers filling up a bucket with gasoline at the Esso station and then toting it back to the body shop for the mechanics to wash auto parts. At age 14, Harvey was ready to get a driver’s license, but he couldn’t find time to take the test. He had football practice every day during the week so he didn’t get home until dark. A funny thing happened one day that remedied that, he said. While having a meal with his dad at the Doughnut Dinette, Mr. Senseney mentioned his son’s dilemma to a highway patrolman. The patrolman offered to help him by coming to his house SEE

Deaths

SENSENEY’S AUTO REBUILDERS which held its grand opening in February 1941, included an Esso filling station and Merritt’s Lunch cafe. The 75-year old building burned down in the early morning hours of Nov.14. Picture postcard courtesy of Harvey Senseney.

Thanksgiving meal at Mt. Zion Apt. It was another beautiful Carolina fall day on Nov. 18 as Mt. Zion AME Apartments continued their tradition of serving the residents a Thanksgiving feast. For the 19th consecutive year, meals including turkey, dressing, gravy, collards, green beans, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, BBQ, sweet potatoes, lemonade and dessert were served to residents and guests of the community. Invitees were served in the property’s community room with tented dining areas scattered about the area. The serving line often wrapped around the Community Center, but the music played by a volunteer DJ helped to soothe the guest’s hunger as the line continued to grow. The Board of Mt. Zion organized the event. They invited not only Mt. Zion res-

idents, but first responders, local officials and agency staff, and clientele that serve the homeless, infirmed, special needs and the disadvantaged. In all, this event will have served over 700 Thanksgiving meals to the residents of the Florence community. The Board appreciates the fellowship that this yearly project provides and the opportunity for Mt. Zion to give back to the city and the many people of Florence. The Board is comprised of Florence community leaders, pastors, officials and business leaders. Each year they strive to improve the event and reach out to even more folks that may be in need of a hot, nutritious holiday meal. This board is no stranger to community service, as several members are Sons of Allen constituents.

SENSENEY FROM PAGE 1A one evening to administer the written test, which he did at the Senseny’s dining table. Then he gave Harvey the driving test. He passed and got his driver’s license. Harvey’s first car was a jeep that the previous owner used to mix cement in the back to put up fence posts. Harvey chiseled out the dried cement and his dad fixed up the jeep, painting it maroon with yellow wheels. Harvey said his dad came to Florence in 1927 and opened the car rebuilding business. He had moved the business in several locations, including the corner of Irby and Baroody Street near the County Complex. When the 75-year old building burned during the early morning hours on Nov. 14, it was owned by Eddie Springs and his daughter Amy Lawhon. Together they operate Wheel Country Tire on West Palmetto Street. The building served as a warehouse for used tires. Springs previously worked for Heafner Tire Company which occupied the property before he acquired it from the Senseney family about three years ago. “I worked there (Heafner’s) for 17 and a half years,” Springs said, estimating the Heafner Tire Co. was there for about 30 years. He left the company about six years ago, starting his own business. Harvey said he and his family had been working to get the building listed with an historical designation before they sold it. They were just a few steps away, he said, noting that one of the requirements was to take off the materials which covered the original facade. Springs said he had made some improvements on the building, including sandblasting and putting on a new roof, and planned to do more. “It was just a nice building,” Springs said, adding that most people didn’t know what a beautiful historical building was hidden behind the facade. It had heart of pine flooring and some unique features, he said, adding he was sad and disappointed that it burned down. There is an ongoing investigation as to the origin and cause of the fire.

City gives updates for #NextPhaseFlorence and Florence Trail System The #NextPhaseFlorenceupdate from the City of Florence last week included an announcement from City Manager, Drew Griffin on the Florence Trail System, bid openings, and the latest on debris clean-up around the city. • Parts of the Florence Trail System are now open.

The paved portion of the Rail Trail and the natural path trail around the pond at Freedom Florence is now open. All other trails at this time are impassible due to downed trees. • Bids were accepted for storm debris removal and monitoring through 3 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17. The bids

are being reviewed and a contractor will be selected. • Amount of storm debris collected to date: Zone 1: 136 loads (estimating 1/4 completed); Zone 6: 138 loads (estimating 1/3 completed) Total loads: 274 (estimated 2,288 cubic yards of debris)

• There are currently 15 documented leaning trees. Please keep an eye out for these leaning trees on rightof-ways or private property, as they may be harmful to people or property. Codes Enforcement and the City Arborist will be doing another citywide evaluation over the next few days to get a more

accurate number. Residents with concerns or questions should email the City at NextPhaseFlorence@CityofFlorence.com Residents can apply for assistance by registering online with FEMA at https:// w w w. f e m a . g o v / d i s a s ter/4286 or by calling 1-800621-3362. Those who are

SC Storm Recovery opens more intake centers COLUMBIA – The South Carolina Disaster Recovery Office (SCDRO) has opened mobile intake centers to accept individual applications for housing recovery related to the October 2015 storm. The mobile offices will serve three counties each day and alternate locations to reach citizens around the state more effectively. Mobile intake centers will be set up in the following counties or combined county areas: Bamberg, Berkeley, Calhoun, Clarendon, Charleston, Darlington-Florence, Dorchester, Georgetown, Greenville-Spartanburg, Horry, Kershaw-Lee, Marion, Newberry-FairfieldGreenwood, and Orangeburg. Each mobile office will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. SCDRO also operates two permanent intake centers located at 318 E. Main Street in Kingstree and 725 Broad Street in Sumter. These centers are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Citizens may make appointments for intake services at any office by contacting their case manager or contacting SCDRO directly. Residents may contact SCDRO by calling 1-844-3301199 or visiting the SCDRO website at www.scstormrecovery.com. The goal is to serve as many citizens as possible. SCDRO intends to repair or replace approximately 1,500 homes affected by the October 2015 storm. The program is designed to assist low to moderate income households and serve South Carolina’s most vulnerable population. The highest priority will be given to households with documented damage and homeowners who are 65 years old or older, persons with documented disabilities, or households with children five years old or younger. The program focuses on the repair or replacement of homes for the most vulnerable citizens that do not have the resources to repair or rebuild their homes. SCDRO will provide eligible citizens with safe, sanitary and secure homes. Any previous funds for home repair received such as homeowner’s insurance, FEMA or local charities, will be subtracted from the total. Citizens applying for assistance should bring the following documentation: a state issued form of identification from the applicant, birth certificates for all persons in the household ages 5 and under, proof of income for persons in the household ages 18 and older, proof of any disability, and insurance policies. The deadline to apply is April 30. www.scstormrecovery.com

VIEWPOINT

About all those Yankees moving to South Carolina By Phil Noble In case you haven’t noticed, there are a lot of new folks moving to the Palmetto State. In fact, we rank second in the nation per capita after Washington state in the number of people moving to our state. A lot of these folks are from up North – AKA Yankees. Here’s the popular stereotype: they move here but for a long time still drive around with car tags from Ohio, Pennsylvania and such. They don’t change their cell phone numbers from 614, 309 or 315 to 843, 803 or 864. They walk around with sweatshirts from Ohio State and Michigan, not Clemson or USC. When you see them out, you can spot them in an instant. At a restaurant, they order a ‘soda’ (they don’t like sweet tea), they order ‘hoagie sandwiches’ (not a sub) and they have no idea of what to do with grits. They are just as likely as not to put sugar on them. And, when they get settled in a bit and begin to interact with us locals– they too often utter that most hated of all phrases, “Well, that’s not how we do it up North.” To which our natural overwhelming urge is to say, “Well if you don’t like it go back up North; I didn’t ask you to come here anyway!” Like all stereotypes, there is some truth and some prejudice in all of this. Well, I’d like to tell you about two Yankees I recently met and what they are doing here in South Carolina. In 2015, Carol and Arnold Hillman moved from Pennsylvania and re-located to the Sun City Retirement Community at Hilton Head. But unlike the stereotypes of newcomers who spend all their time playing golf and complaining with their fellow transplants about the locals, the Hillmans began to travel around the Lowcountry. One day they found themselves in Jasper County where they struck up a conversation with some folks about the schools – they had both been in education in Pennsylvania. One thing led to another and after some conversations with Dr. Vashti Washington, former Superintendent of Schools, they began volunteering at RidgelandHardeeville High School mentoring students. One can imagine the culture shock that followed. The nearly 100% African American students couldn’t understand why these old white folks from some place they had never heard of were hanging around asking questions. And the Hillman’s couldn’t understand the ‘cultural folk ways’ of teenagers in rural Jasper county – you get the picture. But the Hillmans were committed, “We didn’t care if the kids were good students or even if they were well behaved; all we wanted was to work with students.” Carol was soon meeting with a group of 10 girls. They talked about everything from the difference between credit and debit cards to how to choose a good college and the benefits of going into the military. They met right after the students ate lunch and Carol provided snacks. “Sometimes we weren’t sure if they came for the milk and cookies or to learn something, but we figured, ‘whatever works,” Hillman laughed. Carol’s story about one girl is truly inspiring. “Lauren (not her real name) explained that she was 16, had a baby with cerebral palsy and was living with her grandmother who had raised her. Grandma had cancer and Lauren was trying to take care of her, care for her baby and go to school. By now she was crying. It seems her greatest desire was to graduate with her class in June 2017, but she had missed so many days in the past year that she was failing too many classes.” All summer long Lauren and Carol stayed in touch by email as Lauren did not have a cell phone. “When she was down, I would remind her that she was smart and capable and that we would both be ecstatic when she graduated on time. When she was happy, I’d celebrate with her and remind her of how proud I was of her. She passed both of her summer school classes! Here it is, October of her senior year and so far, she is coming to school on a regular basis. I’m delighted to report that Lauren is on track to reach her goal of graduating on time.” Meanwhile, Arnold set up a program called Jasper Gentleman, 10 senior young men who could use some mentoring and who in turn helped younger students in fourth and fifth grade. Arnold explains, “Each of the young men were enthusiastic about doing the mentoring. They were also very interested in what was happening in the world and how they might achieve their goals. We spent months talking about colleges, the military, job possibilities, community happenings and how they might improve the high school. We took a trip to the branch campus of the University of South Carolina in Bluffton, arranged for an etiquette lunch (which turned out to be lunch without etiquette) and concentrated on the next steps in their lives.” “Carol and I attended 11 basketball games, both home and away. A number of the Gents were on the team, but it was the community that encouraged us to go to the games and later on to community events. You see, rural people have been taken advantage of so many times across our country and are naturally suspicious of outsiders. Sometimes, Carol and I were the only snowflakes in the gymnasium. We became fixtures and the folks seemed to welcome us. Sometimes, at away games, they even saved seats for us. They are wonderful people, as are their children.” The Hillmans met with State Superintendent Molly Spearman about how their work in Jasper could be spread to other rural districts around the state. Spearman was encouraging to the Hillmans and they have since established the South Carolina Organization of Rural Schools to help others learn from their experiences. Go to their website http://www.scorsweb.org and see how you can get involved. The Hillmans are just one example of countless people who have moved to South Carolina and who are bringing new ideas, new energy and a new commitment to improving our state. We should be very glad that they have come to our state and have chosen to work alongside those of us who have been here a while to make our state a better place to live. I can even overlook the sugar on the grits. Phil Noble has a technology firm in Charleston and writes a weekly column for the S.C. Press Association.

Thankful hearts and feeling grateful Thanksgiving Day will be here Thursday and many of us will sit around the family table and share ways we have been blessed. Below are some inspirational quotes concerning gratefulness: “Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving.” W. T. Purkiser “When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” Willie Nelson “An attitude of gratitude brings great things.” Yogi Bhajan “If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” W. Clement Stone “I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” Henry David Thoreau. “A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.” Cicero “What if today, we were grateful for

Letter to future R.N. Beck students Dear Future Students of RN Beck Early Childhood Center: If you are reading this years from now, Welcome. I wish you could be here at the ceremony today. You live in our future, and we live in your past. Let me tell you about this occasion. It is Thursday morning; the temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit. It is shortly after 10 a.m., and we are standing in front of the old RN Beck Center, 1001 West Sumter Street, for the demolition ceremony today. I want you to imagine when your school was brand new. This school costs approximately $8 million dollars. The building has 36,000 square feet and sits on 6.3 acres of land. So today

we start making history. What we do today will be done for the first time. What we say today will be said for the first time. So today let me tell you who some of the people are in our audience. We have city and county officials, Florence residents, our superintendent, school board chairman and members of our School Board are present today. We have our future leaders who are sitting right behind me today. I was overwhelmed when I saw how the collaboration between the city of Florence, Francis Marion University, and the Florence One School Board made this dream become a reality. Students of the future, when

we started this process, I saw our board begin to move slowly toward the Michigan Association Positive Board Culture Model. We valued differences of opinion and didn’t allow our differences to denigrate into personality conflicts. Secondly, we focused our agenda and met on issues which focused on student achievement. We publicly supported our superintendent and his staff. We worked hard to build consensus in an environment of trust and respect. I would like to give special thanks to those who support and continue to support the Early Childhood and Academic Assistance Act of 1993 (Act 135) because it places an

Choosing to reconcile, work together By Dr. William Holland The election is finally over and of course there many people that are disappointed and yes, sadly we are still divided. However, if we could just try and work together, we can all benefit from the results of unity. The archaic definition of agree is closely connected to the word symphony and if you are familiar with the orchestra you can definitely appreciate the importance of teamwork and being in one accord. Currently as a nation, we seem to be in that place where the musicians are warming-up and everyone is playing on their own without any consideration for others, (which by the way this chaotic noise reminds me of some type of torture). Anyway, it is such a relief to see the conductor step to the podium and raise his baton. Everything becomes silent and all eyes are focused on him. Then with his gentle and precise direction, unity produces a glorious sound. We know that talent, organization and being willing to cooperate with others always makes a significant difference. We are also reminded that one individual can only do so much but there is no limit to what can be accomplished when we decide to work together. This principal does not only apply to the natural world but also to the spiritual realm as Jesus taught that when we are willing demonstrate unity, we are

helping others see and believe in God. He said in John 17:21, “That they all may be one; as thou Father art in me and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” No, we will not agree on everything, but if we will take the initiative to forgive and become determined to have an open mind, we can enjoy a peaceful life and maybe learn something along the way. There is nothing the devil fears more than when God’s people pray in unity. Spiritual power is multiplied when we come together and is another important reason that Christians are called to assemble. Jesus encourages us with this scripture found in Matthew 18:19 that refers to agreeing and being unified. “Again I tell you that if two of you on earth shall agree about anything you ask for; it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.” He is relaying the message of heaven that anything is possible when we focus on the task at hand and believe in faith. It’s the dark-side that is dedicated to creating and promoting strife and we can see that he has done a fairly good job in our country. Our enemy realizes that if he can keep us fighting against each other, the level of discord will continue to escalate and will make it more difficult to recognize God’s love. It’s time to reach out to one another and reconcile our differences and when we do, we

can walk in the safety and joy of His presence. Two ranchers whose properties were next to each other, were having fierce disagreements about an old barbed-wire fence that represented the boundary lines. Each was convinced the other one was cheating and it did not help that the maps and real estate records were confusing. The conflict had escalated to the point where they would not even permit their families to speak to each other. Finally, after years of nasty accusations and hard feelings, one of the ranchers thought this had become foolish and made the humbling trip over to his neighbor’s house. When he pulled up, the neighbor stepped outside and demanded a reason for the visit. The apologetic rancher said me and my men will move that fence wherever you want it because I’ve had enough of this quarreling and I want us to be friends again. The neighbor just stood there and his heart began to soften to which he finally said, why don’t we just leave it where it is? They shook hands and the problem was solved. “If it be possible, as much as you can, live peaceably with all people” Romans 12:18.

Remember, future students, when you attend our schools in Florence One, you will make a lot of friends---some of those friendships will last a lifetime. Today, I am surrounded by dear friends, too many to call by name, but I am grateful to each of them for being here. Thanks to all of you, we are all in this thing together. 1 Samuel 26:24 reads, “And behold thy life was much set by this day in mine eyes, so let my life be much set by in the eyes of the Lord, and let him deliver me out of all tribulation.” Thanks to all of you and God bless.

Forty local athletes compete in S.C. USATF meet MYRTLE BEACH – Although the weather was cool and windy, it was a perfect day for the USATF Junior Olympic State Cross Country Championships – a meet which is at the pinnacle of the cross country season. The athletes came with hopes high for that day, and they did not leave disappointed.

In the 15-16 year old boys division, Ivan Morris ran his 5k in 20:55 and Tristan Dougherty in 23:12. The teams who qualified for the regionals include second place finishers 8 and under boys, who ran a 2K, made up of Evan Perugini (9:42 and 9th in the state), Hidde Verkoeijen (9:49 and 10th in the state), Myles Jordan (10:49), Connor Hendrix (10:58), Matthew Bailey (11:01), Elijah Hitch (11:06), and Shallan Patel (12:34); 9-10 boys, who ran a 3K, made up of Kaleb Burroughs (State Champion, 11:07), Julian Duncan (11:14 and 2nd in the state), Harrison Howard (11:45 and 4th in the state), Sam Jordan (13:53), and David Hitch (18:18); and the 11-12 boys, who ran a 3K, made up of Zane Morris (11:49 and 9th in the state), Kavan Reynolds (12:27), Kendrick Reynolds (12:27), Xavier Brown (12:54), Arthur Parham (13:35), Mark Perugini (14:24), and James Richardson (17:03).

Holiday Homes Tour to be held on Dec. 4 The 6th Annual Holiday Homes Tour hosted by the Florence Symphony Guild, will take place on Sunday, Dec. 4. The public is invited to come see five beautiful homes decorated for the Christmas season. The homes will be open for touring from 2 to 5 p.m. They are located on South Coit St., McIntosh Woods, Dorchester Road, Pineland Ave. and Hillside Ave. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Proceeds from this annual event support the Florence Symphony Orchestra, Florence/Darlington Strings, Florence Youth Symphony and other musical initiatives. The featured homes are: • 405 South Coit Dr. and Mrs. Simons Ravenel Lucas built this house in 1914. Dr. Lucas was an avid gardener and had a camellia named after him. He suffered a heart attack at a Carolina football game and died later that day in Columbia. Mrs. Lucas passed away in 1983 at the age of 90. The home was bought by Christine Wilds as an investment and rented to ATO Fraternity for several years. Later it was sold to Bunny Lesesne who opened it as the Villa Bonneau. In 2015 an extensive remodeling was completed by the current owners. As you go through the home you will see the original floors and moldings in the public rooms. There is 7,000 sq. feet of heated space. A porch and extensive landscaping has been completed with great pains taken to keep the “bones” from the original yard. • 1200 McIntosh Woods Come and enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas 2016 as you tour the custom built home of Dr. and Mrs. Andrew Rhea. Located in the McIntosh Woods subdivision, the house was constructed in 2011 by Randy Scurry Builders, designed by Gary Brown with original landscape design by Sheila Wertimer of Charleston. At slightly over 3,600 square feet, the house features an open floor plan, extensive windows accentuated by plantation shutters, louvered doors, vaulted ceiling in the living room, and marble countertops throughout the home. Views of the courtyard and pool are featured in most of the downstairs rooms. The entrance of the house opens into a direct view of the piano/music room which will be filled with musicians and song for this Christmas tour. Upon leaving, drive along the alley to the left of the house to enjoy the recent landscaping designed by Mitch Howell Landscaping.

1410 DORCHESTER ROAD

1200 MCINTOSH WOODS

• 1410 Dorchester Road Built by Mr. Griffin, this home contains five bedrooms, three baths, a formal dining/family room/gathering room and study. There are wood burning fireplaces inside and outside on the screened-in porch. Griffin used bricks from a church that was torn down over 60 years ago. You will be able to still see some of the charred brick in certain sections. The Browns purchased the home in 2009 and have done extensive remodeling throughout, adding hardwood floors, front and back porch, custom cabinetry and millwork. The family tree is decorated with the childrens’ handmade ornaments and a tree in the formal dining room features a collection of sterling Christmas crosses and bells given to the boys by their godparents each year. The porch tree has seashells collected over the years. This year the Brown family is adding a special tree in honor of Autism Awareness, and their oldest son, Jack. The family loves nativity displays and has several throughout the house, including Mrs. Brown’s favorite made from oyster shells. The boys have added flair to the outside with a life-size Santa, Rudolph and the Star of Bethlehem.

The remodeling of the kitchen and den with heart pine floors, cherry cabinets, Corian and granite countertops. The sunroom was joined to the den on back of the home. A powder room, master bedroom, master bathroom suite with steam shower, sauna, and two walk-in closets were added. The master bedroom opens to patio. The front porch and dormers were added, and the foyer opened to the second floor with new staircase. Randy Key Architecture designed the front porch/dormer. Currently the home contains 5,200 square feet with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two powder rooms, and a guesthouse. It sits on about 1.5 acres.

• 1817 Pineland Avenue The original house was built in 1952. The current owners purchased the home in 1985 and began a total renovation. The initial renovation was designed by Jack Dowis and constructed by Randy Scurry Builders. The renovation included a new garage with bedroom, bath and office above the garage. Once completed, the family moved in their new home in 1986. Over the years they have had three other renovation projects including:

• 1616 Hillside Avenue This home was built in 1841 on a 1,200acre plantation known as the Old River Road house which was owned by Solicitor Henry Davis in Kingsburg, SC. In 1997, this home was moved and refurbished by Agnes Wilcox and Elizabeth Gaskin to its current location and used by the Women’s Symphony Guild as a Designer Showhouse in 1998. The house has over 3,000 square feet and is three stories. There are two secret exits in the house; two under beds and one behind the fireplace. The original wooden siding and antique glass remain in the house as well as the outside shutters. There are three ensuites, including a master suite, living room, dining room, study sunroom and large great room. Tickets for the Holiday Homes Tour may be purchased in advance from Symphony Guild members or email Florencesymphonyguild@ gmail.com.

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.

Florentines participate in FMU’s Non-Profit Leadership Institute Twenty-five South Carolina nonprofit leaders will participate in Francis Marion University’s 15th Non-Profit Leadership Institute (NPLI), a program that equips nonprofits with leadership and business tools. The class includes Florence participants Bryan Braddock from House of Hope of the Pee Dee, Debbie Edwards from Greater Florence Habitat for Humanity, Ellen Knight from Lighthouse Ministries, Donna Lollis from Harvest Hope Food Bank, Will Malambri III from Central United Methodist Church and various nonprofits, Bill Pickle from the Florence Men’s Choral Society and William Poole from Hope Health. Experts from public, private and non-profit sectors

will lead sessions. Session topics include program development, human resources, financial resource management, data collection and managing external relations. Sometimes non-profit organizations do not have access to resources needed to make their jobs easier, and the NPLI fits a need, giving non-profit leaders the tools they need to make their organizations more successful. According to Cheri Richardson, FMU Coordinator for Development and Outreach Initiatives, the NPLI gives participants business tools and the opportunity to network. “NPLI provides a professional development opportunity for participants in which

they can expand their knowledge base, resources and skill set,” says Richardson. “It also provides participants with a network of non-profit leaders to communicate and possibly collaborate with.” The NPLI is a sevenmonth course. FMU supports NPLI by funding and hosting the institute. According to Darryl Bridges, Vice President for Development at FMU, the institute began at FMU with initial grant support from the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation. FMU President Dr. Fred Carter and Fred Sheheen, former SC Commissioner of Higher Education, were instrumental in founding the NPLI. The entire NPLI class includes: Deanna Amos from Careteam Plus, Carla Angus

from Lake City Creative Alliance, Roger Blackman from Darlington County RLI, Bryan Braddock from House of Hope of the Pee Dee, Glenn Breed from Anderson Interfaith Ministries, Gabriel Cardona from Hope Health, Amy Carter from Charleston Parks Conservancy, Sandy Cook from Lake City Creative Alliance, Bajeyah Eaddy from SAVE.org, Debbie Edwards from Greater Florence Habitat for Humanity, Victoria Hardway from Marion-Dillon DSN, Ellen Knight from Lighthouse Ministries, Lisa Lewis from Richland County Recreation Foundation, Donna Lollis from Harvest Hope Food Bank, Will Malambri III from Central United Methodist Church, Jennifer Massey from Still Wind Ministries, Bill Massey
