THE STORE FRONT WINDOW AT ERS ON WEST EVANS DEPICTS SNOWY NATURE SCENE

ERS participates in downtown holiday window decorating The employees at Employee Reward Solution, ERS, put the spirit of Christmas into decorating their store front window for the holidays. In July of 2016, ERS split up into three teams to come up with a design/concept for decorating the Rainwater building for Christmas. Each team presented their ideas along with a budget to Frank Chisholm and Tim Norwood in October for voting. Because of the creativity presented by each team it was decided to combine elements of each design into the final concept. Chisholm stated that he is “very proud of the teamwork and holiday spirit displayed by the ERS staff in working to come up with their designs and I’m looking forward to sharing the finished product with the Florence community.”

Most investors understand that investing in the stock market should be a long-term commitment. Generally, investors who hold on to their stock for long periods tend to fair better than those investing on a short-term basis. However, there may come a time when selling your stock is necessary. Before selling, investors should stop to consider the reasons they purchased the stock. If it was purchased to meet a specific goal, and that goal has been met, it may be time to sell. When the stock is first purchased, investors should set target prices, both high and low. When the stock hits a target price, it may be a good time to reevaluate whether it should be held or sold. Investors should pay close attention to news regarding the issuing com-

pany for events that may indicate potential problems. These events may include consistent declines in earnings, major lawsuits, or a scandal that has caused consumers to lose faith in the company. While these events may not warrant selling the stock, they should be monitored closely to help in the decision process. An important item to ponder when considering selling stock is the investor’s emotions. Often, investors may panic at the first signs of a downturn in their stock. Investors must remember that volatility in the market is normal and

stocks may fluctuate in price. However, investing with a long-term strategy may help reduce the overall risk to your portfolio. Before selling a stock, investors should consult with their investment professional.

VIEWPOINT

Saving S.C.’s natural treasures: the Edisto River By Phil Noble Recently, I was invited to speak to the Friends of the Edisto and I met Hugo Krispyn who lives on the headwaters of the North Fork of the Edisto. He wrote this about the dangers facing the Edisto and other S.C. rivers. Before pavement was laid across the rolling sandy hills of the South Carolina Midlands, the railroads came. In fact, even now, if you make your way downstream on the North Fork of the Edisto River from I-20, you’ll come to a quiet spot just a mile or two upstream from the Highway 113 bridge where the “Swamp Rabbit” railroad once ran, and where a line of pilings mark the site of the trestle crossing the North Fork near Seivern. It’s a reminder that things change, and that what we see in the moment isn’t necessarily the way things will always be. It’s hard to think of anything as evocative of “all things South Carolina” as the Edisto River. It is the only one of South Carolina’s major rivers existing entirely within the state’s boundaries. The Edisto is over 300 miles of free flowing blackwater river, draining over 3000 square miles of South Carolina’s heart as it flows from the Midlands, across the Coastal Plain, through the ACE Basin, and then around Edisto Island to reach the Atlantic Ocean. As it scrawls and loops its way across the state, the Edisto winds through a diverse ecosystem that owes its very existence to the dark pulse of the river’s waters. Dyed to the exact hue of a cool glass of sweet tea by the rich tannins of the wooded river bottom it traverses, the Edisto provides habitat for a diverse mix of flora and fauna, including an ever-increasing number of humans; people who call South Carolina their home. If you ask them, these people will tell you that they love the Edisto. Unfortunately, the increasing demands that people place on our rivers – including the Edisto – threaten their futures. We’re in danger of loving them to death. If you’ve followed the news in recent years, you might have noticed that the Edisto River has been prominent in a heated discussion about the rules covering withdrawal of surface water from rivers in South Carolina, and how the rules for agricultural withdrawers are different than the rules industrial and municipal users of the same resource must operate under. What may have been lost in that conversation is the focus on protecting our rivers in a sustainable way, guaranteeing the resource’s future for all stakeholders. The rivers of South Carolina are by law public waters, held in trust by the state on behalf of the citizens. The state is duty bound to protect not just the water in the river, but the health, vitality, viability, and sustainability of the web of life that depends upon our rivers, in all of their beautiful complexity. Whole watersheds are reliant on these rivers. Allowing water withdrawals that could permanently damage and degrade entire watersheds represents an abdication of responsibility on the part of those legislators and regulators charged with caring for our rivers. There has been a concerted effort to frame this issue as a conflict between agriculture and so-called “environmental extremists”, and the history of South Carolina’s efforts to create effective surface water laws has certainly featured a robust and polarized debate between the conservation community and other groups, including agricultural interests. Keep in mind, the world of water policy development within South Carolina is a small one, with a limited cast of characters, and memories are long there. The incendiary reactions to the most recent chapter of this saga can perhaps be attributed more to long held grudges than to the issues themselves. It seems obvious and undeniable that it is in the best interest of South Carolina, and of South Carolinians, to develop laws and regulations that protect our rivers from damage. It is equally obvious that within those protective measures there will be space for responsible use of our rivers by a diverse range of stakeholders, including farmers. Surely, though, the absolute basis and foundation of any such measures should be the overarching goal of sustainable stewardship of the rivers themselves. Viewed in that light, our current law falls short of providing adequate protection to our river resources. In a recent letter from the “Friends of the Edisto” stewardship organization, FRED President Tim Rogers phrased it like this: “Love of and respect for our state’s rivers are certainly mutually shared values upon which our policies should be based. So is our desire for our river systems to be clean and healthy and sustainably viable for our use and for future generations. Our state law recognizes this principle by incorporating and defining minimum in-stream flow requirements necessary to the sustainable health of our rivers. Notwithstanding the emphasis placed on this provision, there seems to be some ambiguity as to whether or not these requirements apply to agricultural users. We would advocate a clarification of this issue by provision that minimum in-stream flow requirements would apply to agricultural registrations, in the same manner as to other users. Flow measurement would be based at the point of withdrawal, utilizing data from the closest downstream gauge. We should agree upon a clear, unambiguous and enforceable remedy that would be available to state regulators in response to violations of in-stream flow standards. We would also advocate public/stakeholder notice requirement for new agricultural registrations. Transparency and access for public participation should be advantageous to all parties involved and certainly is consistent with other values in our legal and political system.

The ‘power’ of the purse All my life I have been intrigued with handbags. As a little girl, I got as excited about a new “pocket book” as I did about a new doll. As an adult, I don’t desire dolls anymore, but I am still a fan of the purse. I think a lady’s handbag says something about her. Personally, I prefer a small purse, mainly because it is easier to keep up with, and because it is not as heavy to tote around. The downside of a small purse is you can’t carry much and most of us ladies like to keep things readily available. Most of my lady friends carry large purses, some of which resemble an overnight bag. Curious about what they “tote around,” I conducted an amateur survey with the women in my office about what they had in their handbags. One of my co-workers, who is always prepared for any emergency, listed the following: safety pins, a Tide pen, paper clips, band-aids, charger for a cell phone, ice scraper, tweezers, nail clipper, lip balm, comb and brush, a rock (inside joke) floss, tissues, peppermint oil, coupons, flashlight, snack pack of raisins,

hand lotion, a planner, medicine, highlighter pen and calculator. That’s not all, a Sharpie, flash drive, a Coke, a taser, gum, a mirror and deodorant. I think she has her needs covered nicely, don’t you? I think her purse proves she likes to be prepared. Common items with the ladies in my office include over-the-counter pain killers, such as Tylenol or Advil, Flonase, lipstick, gum, pen or pencil, comb or brush, mirror, wallet and checkbook and cell phone. I always carry my wallet, checkbook, lipstick, nail file, band-aid, a few coupons, pens, a calendar/planner, cell phone and car keys. There is usually some peppermint or hard candy and a few pennies in the bottom of my purse.

With only a few items in my purse, I still manage to lose things inside, especially my car keys. It is amazing how they can hide inside a small handbag. I remember some of the pocket books that I favored as a child. They had zipped or hidden pockets – which I still enjoy – and some of them featured plastic coin holders. These coin holders had space for nickels, dimes, pennies and quarters. You just slid them in the appropriate slots. I can’t remember what I carried in my pocket books, but I usually had one nearby. That habit continues today, and if I don’t have a purse close by, I feel lost. Should I misplace my purse, as I sometimes do, I tend to panic until I find it. I’m not worried about money because I rarely have cash. I worry about having to replace driver’s license, debit, credit cards and insurance cards. I have been a purse fanatic all my life, but have never found the perfect one. However, I know it’s out there and I am forever searching for it.

Poor insurance endangers America’s physical and financial health By Kenneth E. Thorpe Americans earned a 5 percent pay increase last year, according to a new Census Bureau report. That’s the best wage gain since the Great Recession. Unfortunately, most people weren’t able to spend that extra cash on something fun, like a family vacation or new vehicle. Health insurance price hikes ate up millions of Americans’ raises. Insurers are raising rates, deductibles, and copays even more this coming year. The rising costs could prevent patients from following their doctors’ treatment plans. Such non-adherence threatens their health -- and the nation’s budget. To protect patients and stem the rising tide of chronic disease, we need to make insurance more affordable for everyday Americans. Chronic diseases, which range from asthma and hypertension to diabetes and cancer, pervade American society. Today, 190 million Americans live with at least one such illness. And the situation is getting worse. By 2030, 80 percent of the U.S. population will have a chronic

disease. To manage such conditions, patients need health coverage that provides them with quality care. Yet insurance plans are increasingly unaffordable. Over 40 percent of people report that their premiums increased last year, according to joint poll released by Morning Consult and my organization, the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease. In 2017, premiums for plans offered through the Affordable Care Act exchanges will rise by 25 percent, on average. And employer-sponsored health premiums will rise 5-6 percent, on average. Insurers are also increasing deductibles and other cost-sharing requirements. Over half of workers with individual employer-sponsored health plans now face a deductible of at least $1,000. Across the nation, deductibles have gone up 63 percent since 2011, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation study. Roughly four in 10 people say their deductibles and copayments rose in the past year. Many patients can’t afford these higher costs. About 30 percent of Ameri-

Phil Noble continued These steps could constitute an attempt to secure some additional protection for our rivers, pending the ongoing surface water availability studies, watershed planning process, State Water Planning process, and other such initiatives.” Obviously, the development of South Carolina’s water policies is an ongoing process, and the other participants in that process have a legitimate voice and a place at the table. The only workable solutions are going to be those that treat all stakeholders fairly and equitably, while providing adequate protection to our treasured public waters. If this is an issue you care about, take the time to explore it for yourself, and then get engaged in the process. When you contact your legislators, they listen. Your voice can have an effect.

cans couldn’t fill a prescription or obtain a needed procedure last year because of high deductibles, copays, and co-insurance. In 2014, 16 million chronic disease patients avoided seeking care for their conditions because of the cost. Failing to adhere to a doctor’s orders can prove fatal. If heart attack patients fill some, but not all of their prescriptions, their chance of dying within the year increases by 44 percent. If they don’t fill any of their prescriptions, that likelihood spikes to 80 percent. Non-adherence is financially dangerous too. Consider diabetes patients, who face over $1,900 in deductibles and copays each year, on average. If they can’t afford these insurance payments and skip some treatments, they’re likely to sustain kidney damage. Forty percent of diabetics with kidney damage ultimately endure kidney failure. To survive, those patients must rely on dialysis – which can cost up to $72,000 per year. In other words, because we as a nation can’t figure out a way to help chronic dis-

ease patients afford a few thousand dollars in insurance payments, people are getting sicker and racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars in healthcare expenses. Improving medication adherence for diabetes patients alone could prevent $4 billion in Medicare spending per year, according to consultancy IMS Health. Americans finally got decent raises last year. Let’s hope our leaders introduce reforms, so that people don’t continue spending more for worse coverage.

Local pastor publishes book, ‘Finding My Way Home’ Author and pastor Nicholas Lyerly of Florence has published his story of overcoming challenges and disappointments in his book, “Finding My Way Home.” We may not always know where God is leading us, and like the prodigal son, we can often be led astray. So how do we find our way back? When Nick Lyerly received his call to the ministry, he was already settled with a family and a promising career. But even though answering the call would bring insurmountalble challenges, he could not deny his true purpose. However, the road to Nick’s dream of becoming a Methodist minister would be paved with hardship. In Finding My Way Home, Lyerly shares his story of overcoming in the face of struggle, hardship and disappointment. During his early years, Nick’s family was struck by tragedy and he became a rebellious youth, acting out in ways that would constantly haunt him. In spite of this, Nick grew up to be a devout Christian who would hear the call from God. Nick’s faith and marriage would be put to the test while he attended seminary for four years away from his wife and son, but he remained steadfast. Yet even as he fulfils this call and ministers his own church, an unforeseen event would threaten his career before it had even begun. Was this part of God’s plan? Even though our lives may not always turn out the way we plan, God can provide us with peace and joy through all the soul-searching frustration, and indecision. Join Nick on his remarkable journey of self-

NICK LYERLY discovery and redemption as he finds his way back home

to God. Lyerly’s book cover was created by local artist Lynda English. Nick earned his master of divinity degree from Duke University in 2003 and he is director of the Evening College at Florence-Darlington Technical College and pastor of Mount Vernon United Methodist Church. He and his wife, Staci, reside in Florence and their son Jacob is a student at the University of South Carolina. His book is published by LifeRich Publisher and is available at Barnes & Noble Booksellers.

Florence Biggest Students greatly surpass reading goals Loser begins Jan. 24 BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C.

Students at Palmetto Youth Academy are beaming with pride after greatly surpassing their reading goals for a three-week period in conjunction with the worldwide Young Readers Day celebration. The entire student body, with the exception of the 5K students, participated in a reading contest, along with other activities to encourage the joy of reading. Janice Cooper, the school’s literary coach, set a goal for the student body of 300 books. She was amazed to learn on Nov. 30 at the school’s Young Readers Day celebration that the first through sixth graders read a total of 1,795 books. “I was real surprised and very proud of them,” she said. “This is quite an accomplishment especially since they are tested on each book they read and they must score 80 or above for their book to count.” Trophies were presented to three students. Jakorie Durant, 12, won for reading the most books with 96. Khaleb Cobb, 9, read 26 books and received a trophy for the most points. His favorite book was “Big Nate.” Alaiah Allen, 9, got a trophy for her reading rap

KHALEB COBB, LEFT, JAKORIE DURANT AND ALAIAH ALLEN POSE WITH THEIR READING TROPHIES presentation in the Reading Talent Show during the Young Readers Day celebration. She read 77 books, her favorite being “The Lunch Lady.” For the celebration, students brought lunch and a blanket to school and sat outdoors for a reading picnic. In the afternoon they participated in a balloon release. They also enjoyed a Reading Talent Contest in which par-

ticipating students competed with song, rap, poems and dance. Teachers ended the show with their own performance. Mrs. Cooper’s reading contest was named “Pimp Mrs. Cooper’s Ride.” She will treat the winners with a visit to a school in Darlington where they will read to a first grade class and distribute cupcakes and pencils. That will be followed by lunch at a

restaurant of their choosing and then a trip to Barnes and Nobles Booksellers to choose a book. Their special day will conclude with a visit to an ice cream parlor for dessert, Mrs. Cooper said. Palmetto Youth Academy is located on Douglas Street and serves youth, 5K to sixth grade. The school is the only charter school in Florence and is in its eleventh year.

Marion Healthcare Foundation awards $200,000 to support disaster recovery Marion County Healthcare Foundation (MCHF) challenges the people of South Carolina and beyond to support Nichols and Marion County as they rebuild after the devastation of Hurricane Matthew. Both the town of Nichols and outlying areas of Marion County were hit hard by Hurricane Matthew. The heavy rains caused the Lumber and Little Pee Dee Rivers to flood the entire town of Nichols leaving over 90% of the 260 homes underwater and uninhabitable. Six churches and all 22 local businesses were also flooded. Mayor Lawson Battle explained that most of the town’s 400 residents are elderly or disabled, making it even more difficult to cope with the hardship of losing everything.

MCHF will be matching dollar for dollar up to $100,000 all contributions to support the town of Nichols with disaster recovery. Contributions should be made out to: Town of Nichols Disaster Recovery. In care of: Anderson Brothers Bank PO Box 310 Mullins, SC 29574 MCHF is also pledging a $100,000 match to all contributions supporting Marion County’s disaster recovery. Those contributions should be made out to: Marion County Recovery Aid Fund In care of: Anderson Brothers Bank PO Box 310 Mullins, SC 29574 The criteria for fund distribution is being developed and

that information will be shared with the public as soon as it is available. Mary Dunbar, Executive Director of the Marion County Healthcare Foundation asks, “As you are contemplating your end-of-theyear contributions to charity, please keep in mind those so greatly affected by the destruction of Hurricane Matthew. Consider contributing to the Disaster Recovery efforts in Nichols and Marion County. MCHF will double your donation. We at MCHF thank you on behalf of our friends and neighbors in Nichols and Marion County.” Marion County Healthcare Foundation is a health legacy foundation whose mission is to improve the quality of life in Marion County through inspired philanthropy, grants and innovative community programs.
