Keith and Coleman Buckhouse were blessed with two beautiful little girls, but Coleman had a desire for a son to complete their family. She had not thought much about adoption, until one of her sorority sisters adopted a young boy from Russia. The idea of adoption took root in her heart. She began checking into the international adoption process with the request for a boy over a year old. Her husband was a little unsure about this process, she said, until they received a photo of this cute little Russian boy, 13 months old. They immediately knew he was the son they were missing. Eventually, the Buckhouses flew to St. Petersburg, Russia, to meet this little blonde-headed boy. Warned that the children in the orphanage had little contact with men, they were prepared that he may be afraid of Keith. Not so with Eddie – he immediately crawled in Keith’s lap and his new dad was smitten. They have

THE BUCKHOUSE FAMILY – From left, Keith, Emery, Daisy, Eddie and Coleman been close buddies every since. The couple spent two weeks with the boy who would become their son before bringing him to his new home in Florence. At that time he was 18 months old. They named him Edward Joseph Buckhouse. “I knew this was in God’s hands. This was so right,” Cole-

man remembers feeling. His official adoption date is March 28, 2001, a date celebrated by the family each year as his Got Cha Day. Before traveling to Russia, Coleman purchased a heavy coat to prepare for the cold weather. She hasn’t needed it since returning to our mild climate, but friends

who also adopted Russian children have borrowed her coat. “It has become my traveling coat,” Coleman quipped, noting that it kept three of her friends warm in Russia. These include Courtney Sullivan and Michelle Jones, who also adopted children. SEE

Superintendent Dr. Randy Bridges resigns Florence One Superintendent Dr. Randy Bridges submitted his letter of resignation effective Dec. 31, 2017, to the Florence School District One Board of Trustees on Thursday evening during executive session of the board meeting. Dr. Bridges became the superintendent of Florence School District One schools on Jan. 5, 2015. During Dr. Bridges’ tenure as superintend-

ent, over 15 new initiatives were implemented in Florence One schools. Specifically, the number of choice options have increased from four to eight, including STEM Magnet, Language Immersion, Early College, Elementary Montessori, and the district’s first full-time, Year Round Calendar School. Planning is currently underway for an elementary International Baccalaureate Program as well. In addition, three schools

implemented one-to-one initiatives over the past three years. Under Dr. Bridges’ leadership, Florence One continued its commitment to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It now has five schools that have received AdvancED STEM Certification.

ADOPTION COMPLETES FAMILY FROM PAGE 1A Many families in Florence have adopted from Russia, but today Russia no longer allows international adoptions. Eddie didn’t speak much when he came to America, but he soon learned English. Baby Net, a state-supported DHEC early intervention program provided speech therapy and language development assistance. Eddie learned quickly and his language skills came easily, Coleman said. At age three, he was required to undergo testing by Florence School District 1 and Coleman remembers he did well on everything until it came to his colors. They held up a blue card and he said red, a green one and he said blue, etc. But when shown an orange card, Eddie said “yucky.” When the parents explained they were USC

graduates, the tester scored him a correct answer for that one, his mom remembers. Eddie’s sisters, Daisy and Emery, were excited to meet him and quickly embraced their new little brother. Like most older sisters, they have enjoyed teasing and “messing” with him, he said. Although Daisy has completed college and is working in Greenville and Emery is a senior at USC, they are very close siblings. The sisters made sure he learned how to dance, teaching him themselves, noted Keith. Eddie as a youngster was all boy, Coleman recalls. She remember installing outlet covers on all the electrical outlets in her home. Her girls never messed with them, she said, but one day, not long after bringing him home, she found him with a screw-

Florence One also opened two new schools on time within the allotted budget, and a new RN Beck Child Development Center is currently under construction. Dr. Bridges said, “Florence One has some significant items to address over the next three to five years. These include developing a new strategic plan, determining how to meet the facilities needs of the district, implementing the six through eight middle school model, and continuing a conversation about the consent order. Having a new superintendent to lead these efforts is better than starting them and bringing someone in after the processes have already begun. However, I am pleased that we were able to lay a foundation for these crucial conversations.” Dr. Bridges maintains that the core business of any successful educational institution is teaching and learning, and he pointed to Florence One’s test measurements results during his three year period of leadership. “During the 2015-16 school year our schools saw some positive results on EndOf-Course, SAT, ACT, as well as a decrease in the dropout rate and an increase in the graduation rate. Moreover, our students set a record of receipt of scholarships awarded to graduating seniors. Conversely, Dr. Bridges added, “During the 2016-17 school year, we saw slight decreases in some of these areas, especially the second year results in mathematics and ELA/reading on SCREADY. Our PASS test results remained relatively flat, and have done so for a number of years. We must seek continuous improvement of student outcomes on state assessments,” he noted. Dr. Bridges went on to say that while in Florence One, one of his main goals was to build capacity in those people who have chosen to be in leadership positions. “I wanted the leaders of our schools and departments to explore how to use their resources of time, people, space, technology, information and money differently. An important part of being a superintendent is supporting principals and exposing them to different opportunities at the state and national levels, especially as it relates to programs they feel will improve the educational opportunities for their children. We have solid leaders in our schools, and I hope my efforts have made them better educators.” Dr. Bridges has served as superintendent of schools for the past 20 years in three different states –Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. In a career that has spanned nearly 40 years, he has been a teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal, associate superintendent and superintendent. “Choosing to become an educator was easy for me. Outside of my family, the most influential people in my life were teachers and coaches.”

EDDIE AS A LITTLE BOY WITH HIS PARENTS Coleman and Keith Buckhouse driver trying to take it apart. He also loved to climb and found ways to explore including the tall kitchen cabinets. However, she continued, “Eddie has been such a blessing. Besides being such an easy going person, he is very studious and self-motivated...We never had to push him to complete his schoolwork. He does well academically.” “Eddie is competitive,” added his father. “He excels in sports.” He plays both soccer and football at Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School where he is a senior. However, an injury keeps him off the field right now.

Eddie is captain of his high school soccer team, and he is Homecoming King, student body president and a member of the honor society. Asked about his competitiveness, Eddie explained, “I want to have good grades.” Also, he hates to lose, added his father. Following the members of his family, Eddie plans to attend USC in the fall, possibly majoring in computer science or engineering. Perhaps his early attempt to investigate the interworks of an electrical outlet was an indication of his future career path.

Florence Convention, Visitors Bureau honored with Readers’ Choice Award by industry peers

DARLINGTON’S NEW TRASH TRUCK

Darlington gets new trash truck DARLINGTON – The City of Darlington received the final piece of a roughly half-million dollar investment in its Street and Sanitation Department on Friday, Nov. 10. The crisp white 2018 New Way Rear Loader has a 20-cubic yard capacity. The body features all LED lights for maximum efficiency and an 80-gallon fuel tank. This vehicle replaces a faltering one from 2008. This model is similar to the City’s commercial trash truck purchased in October 2014. This truck is the last delivery of three new major equipment upgrades sorely needed for the department. Two brand new cherry picker trucks, which collect yard debris, were received in June and late September and replaced models from the mid-1980s. The City will pay for these vehicles over 10 years with payments of $50,500 per year. A portion of the equipment is being paid for through a $50,000 grant from U.S. Department of Agriculture.

ConventionSouth, a national multimedia resource for planning events in the South, has presented the Florence Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) with a 2017 Readers’ Choice Award. “ConventionSouth readers and fans have voted to decide the best meeting sites in the South, and it is no surprise to us that Florence Convention & Visitors Bureau has been selected to receive our annual Readers’ Choice Award,” said ConventionSouth Publisher J. Talty O’Connor. “The value

VIEWPOINT

Pray for America, but work to make her better too By Armstrong Williams When deranged gunman Devin Kelly walked into a small community church in a tiny rural Texas town and killed the pastor’s daughter and wife along with twenty-six other innocent parishioners, including an 18-month old baby, our hearts cried out in anguish. No one should have to suffer such evil, and no family should have to experience the anguish of loved ones dying so violently, so senselessly. The people who died during that church service deserve our prayers. But even more importantly, all of us who are praying for them need to feel like we are doing something to help. None of the people sitting comfortably and observing from a distance were the first responders, nor are we the valiant heroes who chased the gunman from the church and risked their own lives defending their community. There is nothing we can do to prevent the tragedy that unfolded in Southerland Springs. But as people of faith we can pray. As prayers went out on social media, some from politicians and other well-wishers, the issue of guns and their regulation rose predictably to the forefront of the debate, especially on social media. Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu was widely and vociferously attacked by his own constituents for merely ‘praying’ for the victims, but failing to pass gun regulations through Congress. Republican Senators and members of Congress such as Tom McCain who sent out prayers for the victims via twitter were roundly mocked with memes depicting contributions their political campaigns have received from the gun lobby. The implication was clear – that by praying for the victims while at the same time advocating gun rights, they were exhibiting some unpardonable hypocrisy. And yet the very same people who widely critiqued pro-gun politicians, called Donald Trump despicable names for inferring that a terrorist attack carried out in New York City could have been prevented if the Diversity Visa immigration program had been halted. In one act of violence, people blamed the most proximate instrument used by the criminal – guns. But with regards to the other act of violence, others blamed immigration policy. The political debate over whether one policy or another will mitigate the ravages wrought by the acts of evil humans will continue to rage on. Prayers could not have prevented either tragedy, that is true. But prayers do work. They work in affirming our belief in a higher power. They work in that we offer up to God the way to salvation – a solution that we, as human, beings, despite our laws, policies and technologies – often cannot fathom. The media is quick to pounce on salient political themes whenever a sensationalized tragedy grabs our attention, however fleetingly. Politicians are all too eager to grandstand on one political platform or another whenever the ensuing controversy begins to roil. We tend to lose sight of the facts amidst the media-enabled din, and give in to senseless blaming and shaming. The fact is that mass gun violence is exceedingly rare in America. Contrast our nation to our immediate southern neighbor, Mexico. In Mexico, the ownership and use of assault rifles and other automatic weapons face strict regulation, and yet the nation experiences mass gun violence on a scale that the average American could scarcely imagine. Texas Governor Abbott also issued his prayers and condolences to the families affected by this senseless tragedy. He said, “We ask for God’s comfort, for God’s guidance and for God’s healing for all those who are suffering.” Governor Abbott did not resort to grandstanding in the middle of a tragedy. Instead, he asked god for help. While there is some irony apparently in the fact that the alleged shooter was an atheist – that does not mean that atheists are murderers or that people who profess Christian faith are free from evil in their hearts. It does register for some that the local heroes who chased the gunman and may have wounded him with their own weapons – used guns for their intended purpose, to defend the lives and property of law-abiding folks. Those acts of heroism, however well intended, did not prevent the senseless deaths of those parishioners. There really is no dilemma here. Praying is not a substitute for doing nothing, for as we know from the bible, “faith without works” is both spiritually and practically useless. On the other hand, praying for guidance and healing, and then going out and trying to work to prevent future tragedies makes sense. When it comes to human beings committing evil acts on their own people – the instruments they employ, whether they be guns, trucks, explosives, knives, poisons, or any of the endless manner of murder and mayhem, are not the core of the problem. To paraphrase The Bard, it is not in our guns, but in our souls that we are knaves. The key to solving issues like gun violence and terrorism does not involve knee-jerk reactions that ultimately reduce our individual freedoms or increase our faith in government policy. The key is but to address and root out the sources of evil in the first place. No law or policy can make us completely safe. Prayer and seeking understanding and working diligently to purify our souls through moral education – much like the parishioners in First Baptist Church – is clearly a better path for seeking salvation.

Yep, I can relate to that... Smonday is the moment Sunday stops feeling like Sunday and the anxiety of Monday kicks in.

Most of us can probably relate to some of the following comments and quotes found on coffee mugs, t-shirts and canvases: I can’t wait to retire so I can get up at 6 a.m. and go drive around really slow and make everybody late for work. I’m beginning to realize I will never be old enough to know better.

Brenda Harrison

I can’t believe how old people my age are.

Editor

I always knew I would get old. How fast it happened was a bit of a surprise, though.

I tend to hold onto junk for years and throw it away a week before I need it.

Sometimes when I can’t hear someone, I just laugh and hope it wasn’t a question.

Senility will be a fairly smooth transition for me.

Some people are great at multitasking. They can listen, ignore and forget all at once.

Ever wonder if clouds look down on us and say, “Hey look. That one is shaped like an idiot.”

Wouldn’t it be great to be like a caterpillar? Eat a lot. Sleep for a while. Wake up beautiful.

I get up in the morning tired, so by the afternoon I’m dying to rest. Come bedtime and I can’t sleep.

Apparently you have to eat healthy more than once to get in shape. This is cruel and unfair. I don’t want to be an adult today. I don’t want to be human. Today I want to be a dog, lying on the floor in the sun. Please pet me and bring snacks.

Small Business Saturday falls on Nov. 25 By Ben Homeyer Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving, is the unofficial start of the Christmas shopping season, but it’s the next day, Small Business Saturday, that really puts me in the holiday spirit. That’s because Small Business Saturday, which falls on Nov. 25 this year, isn’t about getting up before dawn, fighting traffic, jostling with crowds and standing in long lines to save a few bucks on things no one asked for. Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate and support the small, family-run businesses that do so much throughout the year to support our community. The campaign to “shop small” on the Saturday after Thanksgiving began in 2010 to help small businesses that were struggling to recover from the

last recession. Since then, it has grown into a powerful movement to give back to the businesses that keep our communities vibrant. The idea is simple: Instead of sitting at home and ordering online or driving to the nearest shopping center or bigbox store, you shop at small, locally-owned businesses for things you simply can’t find at the mall. And instead of dealing with temporary workers who don’t know the merchandise, you’re likely to deal directly with the owner, who has a vested interest not only in selling you something that day but in making you want to come back time and again throughout the year. And like Black Friday, Small Business Saturday comes with its own deals and discounts. Shoppers are wising up to Small Business Sat-

urday. Last year, an estimated 112 million people reporting shopping at small businesses on Small Business Saturday, a 13-percent increase from the year before, according to a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and American Express. Among those who shopped on last year’s Small Business Saturday, 32 percent reported attending a community event while 81 percent encouraged friends and family to shop or dine at small, independentlyowned businesses. That level of support is having a real impact in our communities. State-specific numbers aren’t available, but, nationwide, shoppers spent an estimated $15.4 billion independent stores and restaurants on last year’s Small Business Saturday.

Bridges resignation is children’s loss District One Superintendent Randy Bridges’ leadership will be sadly missed by the children in our school district. Over the past years Dr. Bridges has offered a vision and a strategic plan that was creating a wonderful momentum of excitement in learning among the children, enthusiasm among their teachers, and an increase in test scores. With the recent loss of Glenn Odom, a Board member whose body of work for over 20 years exhibited fairness and advocacy for all the students of the district, and now with the sudden resignation of Dr. Bridges, this leaves a large void to fill in District One. If the current school

board expects a superintendent with the abilities of Dr. Bridges to apply for this job, they may have to exhibit a much more cooperative and positive demeanor. What superintendent in his right mind would want to come to District One and start out having to deal with such a divisive governing body? The voters in a couple of

districts may need to replace some single-agenda issue board members with citizens who are truly concerned about unity and the education of children in the entire district. We wish Dr. Randy Bridges God-speed and the Board good luck in the future. Carroll Player, DDS

That’s money that, for the most start, stays in the community. When you shop local and shop small, you’re supporting your friends and neighbors. You’re supporting your community. When you shop at a chain store, most of the money goes back to some corporate office somewhere, but when you shop on Main Street, most of that money stays on Main Street. This holiday season, make a difference in your community: Shop local on Small Business Saturday.

Land Trust protects farm The Pee Dee Land Trust (PDLT) finalized its agreement to permanently protect over 2,100 acres of working farm and forest land on the Lynches River in Lee County on Aug. 16. Through the use of permanent agreements, PDLT and landowners work as partners to ensure that land use activities on private property are limited in order to preserve key conservation values which benefit the public. These values include open space such as rural scenic views along roads and rivers, habitat for wildlife including game and non-game species, and the protection of farm and forest land to ensure it remains in farming and forestry rather than being converted to other uses. PDLT is proud to have partnered with the South Carolina Conservation Bank to help make this important project possible as Lee County’s first Conservation Bank funded project. SC Representative Will Wheeler shared his thoughts on the project, “The natural beauty of Lee County is one of our great resources, and recreational use of Lynches River has grown in the years since it was designated a Scenic River. This project reflects conservation at its best, balancing the ability to protect a valued resource while allowing land to continue to be productive. Projects like this are why I am glad to support the Conservation Bank, and appreciate the efforts of PDLT in working to have such a major project completed here in Lee County.” The property is managed for row crops, pine production, bottomland hardwood forest, and wildlife habitat with a focus on quail management. The conservation agreement will keep the property whole, helping to ensure that it will remain available for growing and harvesting crops and timber as well as recreational uses such as hunting and fishing. Over half of the farm includes prime agricultural soils, supporting some of the most productive farmland and timberland in South Carolina. By retaining a natural forest buffer and prohibiting timber harvesting along more than a mile of the Lynches River, the property will contribute to the wildlife habitat, water quality, and scenic values of this state-designated Scenic River, a popular route for kayak and canoe trips. The property also retains scenic road frontage along more than four miles of public highway. Seth Cook, director of Land Conservation with PDLT, noted that “this is one of the best examples of what a large property can do when managed for a diverse blend of uses. The mix of high value crop production, timber production, and wildlife management complement each other to benefit the property and all those nearby. When it comes to conservation values, this property checks every box.” “Although Lee County is outside of PDLT’s nine county service area, this project was a natural fit into our overall conservation plan for the Pee Dee,” stated Lyles Cooper Lyles, PDLT’s executive director. “When this project was proposed to our staff, we were really excited about working with the landowner to preserve this property as it buffers a major river in the Pee Dee watershed and is just across the river from other properties in which PDLT holds land and conservation easements.” With this as its largest conservation project to date, and its first in Lee County, Pee Dee Land Trust has now protected over 27,019 acres in the Pee Dee Region. While remaining in private ownership, the lands protected through conservation easements held by PDLT ensure that special places will be available for farming, forestry, and recreation for future generations. Pee Dee Land Trust focuses in nine counties of the Pee Dee region in South Carolina: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Marion, Marlboro, and Williamsburg. Its mission is to protect, and to promote an appreciation of, the significant natural, agricultural, and historical resources of the Pee Dee Region through voluntary land conservation and educational programs. Pee Dee Land Trust has a toolbox full of options to help landowners who are interested in conservation such as accepting donations of land or conservation easements.

Greenberg leaving FSO

UNVEILING OF MONUMENT

VIETNAM MEMORIAL UNVEILED AT VETERANS PARK – At left, R.S. ‘Steve’ Siegfried, Major General, U.S. Army retired, participates in the unveiling of the new monument honoring Vietnam veterans after speaking to the crowd attending the Veteran’s Day Ceremony on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.The monument was installed in Florence Veterans Park.

Heather Greenberg, the Executive Director of the Florence Symphony Orchestra for the past three seasons, is leaving the position to pursue other endeavors, the organization said this week. Greenberg and her husband, Barnett, are expecting a second child this spring. Greenberg says she’ll miss her work with the FSO. “It’s been a great opportunity,” says Greenberg. “We’ve made some tremendous strides. I am proud of the work that the FSO staff, musicians and Board of Directors have accomplished together.” FSO leaders praised Greenberg for her role in growing the organization’s budget and audience, and for the professionalism and integrity she brought to the Executive Director role. Once a replacement Executive Director is named, Greenberg will continue to work with the FSO into the spring to help with the transition. The search for a new FSO Executive Director is in progress. More details are available on the FSO website, www.florencesymphony.com/employment.

Blue Jays’ Holmberg named Coolbaugh Award winner Minor League Baseball announced last week it has selected Bluefield Blue Jays’ Manager Dennis Holmberg as the recipient of the 10th annual Mike Coolbaugh Award. Holmberg will receive the award at the Baseball Winter Meetings Banquet on Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. The Mike Coolbaugh Award is presented annually to an individual who has shown outstanding baseball work ethic, knowledge of the game and skill in mentoring young players on the field. The award was created by Minor League Baseball in 2008 to honor the late Coolbaugh, a 17-year minor league player who was in his first year as a coach at the time of his passing. Mike appeared in 44 major league games with the

DENNIS HOLMBERG Milwaukee Brewers (39 games in 2001) and St. Louis Cardinals (five games in 2002). Holmberg played eight seasons in the Milwaukee Brewers organization from 1970-77, where he played every position except shortstop. During his

playing career, he also spent eight years (1971-78) in the Army Reserve National Guard. Following his playing career, Holmberg embarked on a coaching career that has spanned 40 years, the last 39 of which have come in the Blue Jays’ organization. Of Holmberg’s 40 seasons in the dugout, 38 have been spent at, or below, the Class-A level (he spent the 1994-95 seasons as Toronto’s bullpen coach). Holmberg’s teams have reached the postseason 11 times and he received the Bobby Mattick Award, which is presented by the Blue Jays organization to recognize excellence in player development, in 2006 and 2011. In his career, Holmberg has coached or managed 244 players that have reached the Major Leagues and he has a managerial record of

1,474-1,355. His 1,474 wins are ninth-most among active minor league managers. “I am humbled and deeply honored to be chosen as the 2017 recipient of the Mike Coolbaugh Award. To be included on the list with the previous winners and their accomplishments only reminds me of Mike’s work ethic, his knowledge and passion for the game,” said Holmberg. “I am grateful to the Toronto

Blue Jays organization for 40 years of opportunity, Pat O’Conner and all of Minor League Baseball and most importantly, the Coolbaugh family.” “This is an incredible achievement and recognition for someone who has selflessly devoted the better part of his life to developing and mentoring our players and coaches on and off the field,” said Toronto Blue Jays General Manager Ross Atkins.

Tellabration to be held this Saturday Tellabration, A Walk Down Dargan, will take place on Saturday, Nov. 18. An evening of storytelling, Tellabration creates a network of storytelling enthusiasts bonded together in spirit at the same time and on the same weekend worldwide. The storytelling begins at 7 p.m. at TThomas Studio, 167 North Dargan Street. Storytellers include Carla Simon Angus, Jess Willis, Fred Wilson and Dawn Larsen. Parking will be available on the street and across the street. This project is made possible through funding from the Florence Area Regional Arts Alliance’s Quarterly Grant Program.

The Marine birthday cake was cut by FMF Corpsman Eugene Piersol and Marine Stanley Wells with Commandant Don Jones on right.

Marines celebrate birthday The Marine Corps League, Julian D. Dusenbury Detachment #410 celebrated the Marine Corps 242nd birthday on Nov. 11. This was also the detachments 40th anniversary since being chartered on Oct.13,1977. They are the oldest detachment in South Carolina. This 40th Birthday Ball was held at the Elks Lodge 1020. The evening included dinner and music from the 1930s to the present playing, followed by a program. Commandant Don Jones opened with attendees paying respect to the U.S. flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a boisterous rendition of “The Marine Corps Hymn.” Jim Williams read the Commandant of the Marine Corps’ General Neller’s birthday message. Randy Godbold, Florence County Veterans Service Officer, and honorary Marine Corps League

member, was the guest speaker. A little bit of history: The reading of the birthday message has been a tradition since the Marine Corps 13th Commandant John A. Lejuene's implementation in 1921. After Marine historian Maj. Edwin North McClellen sent a memorandum to Commandant Lejuene to use the original date when they were formed in 1775 at Tun's Tavern instead of July 11 when the Marines were reformed, the first formal birthday celebrations were formalized in 1925. The Marine Corps Birthday Ball became more standardized by Commandant Lemuel C. Shepherd Jr. in 1952, outlining the cake cutting ceremony, which would enter the Marine Drill Manual in 1956. By tradition, the first slice of cake is given to the oldest Marine present, who in turn hands it off to the youngest,

symbolizing the old and experienced Marines passing their knowledge to the new generation of Marine. Members who have helped with functions throughout the year received Distinguished Service Awards presented by Henry King. Receiving awards were Jim Williams, Leslie Gregg, Eugene Piersol, Thomas Robinson, Judy Jones, Don Jones, Steve Mayhew, Henry King, William Keating, Charlene Keating and Leslie Gregg Sr. The Detachment Marine of the Year Award was awarded to Don Jones who has served as the commandant of the detachment for 10 years. An Associate of the Year Award was presented to Judy Jones who works very hard for the detachment. Thank You Certificates were given to Randy Godbold and the Elks Lodge 1020.

HopeHealth hosts Cooking Matters class Preparing a meal with friends and family adds a touch of something extra to a dish. Doing so while learning new ways to make a meal more nutritious is a bonus. At HopeHealth, Cooking Matters classes taught by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) have helped families in the Florence community do this for more than a year. Language barriers, however, can discourage area residents from taking advantage of such free resources. Recently, HopeHealth teamed up with DHEC instructors to make the class accessible to the Florence area Hispanic community with Spanish interpreters facilitating the cooking sessions at the Medical Plaza in Florence. From chopping, dicing, and slicing techniques, to budgeting exercises and even a field trip to a local grocery store, the class delivers valuable information about the foods we eat and how to make everyday meals more nutritious during six weekly interactive sessions. Topics

COOKING MATTERS AT HOPEHEALTH WITH SPANISH INTERPRETATION Photo by Grayson Markle/HopeHealth

covered in the course include getting your family excited about healthy eating and purchasing healthy food on a budget. “The majority of people view their doctor’s office as just a place where they go to receive medical care. These classes make HopeHealth a little different,” said Eduardo Velazquez, a Latino Services interpreter with HopeHealth. “Here, it’s not just about medicine; it’s also about learning how to make healthier life choices. You come to a doctor to see where you are with your health, and our providers give you the tools and information you need. This just takes that another step further. It is a fun, learning experience that shows you things you can do for yourself and your family to improve their health through daily lifestyle changes.” Velazquez, who helps patients and their providers understand each other during regular HopeHealth appointments, said such classes help bridge communication barriers and allow patients to take a proac-

tive approach to their health care – especially when it comes to nutrition. “Even though the meals they create are very delicious, many dishes contain a lot of cholesterol and grease,” he said. “The class teaches how to reinvent a traditional dish such as ceviche using healthier ingredients and cooking techniques and shows how they don’t necessarily have to get rid of the foods they like; just change them up a little bit.” Participation in the free class is hands-on. The students – mothers, fathers, even children are the chefs and they prepare and cook the provided ingredients to produce a nutritious, budget-friendly meal. After class ends, participants are provided the same ingredients introduced in the lesson to prepare at home. They also receive a guide with more than 60 low-cost, familyfriendly recipes to try. For more information on upcoming sessions, contact Sonda Jett-Clair at 8434323717 or sjclair@hope-health.org.

Eastern Carolina Community Foundation (ECCF) is coordinating a collaborative giving campaign called #GivingTuesdayPeeDee for regional nonprofits on Nov. 28. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and #GivingTuesdayPeeDee will promote area nonprofits to inspire philanthropy in the Pee Dee on this day. Celebrated on the Tuesday following the Thanksgiving shopping season – Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday – #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year charitable giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become an international movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. All the nonprofits participating in #GivingTuesdayPeeDee will gather in an open house on the Civic Center concourse where a donation station will be open to the public from 1-6 p.m. on Nov. 28. The public can practice their year-end generosity all in one place at one time by donating time, resources and talents to address local challenges. The donation station brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners — nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals — to encourage and amplify charitable acts of kindness. Eastern Carolina Community Foundation is one of nearly 750 community foundation organizations across the nation that works with local citizens to improve the quality of life in their region. Serving the sevencounty region of the Pee Dee, Eastern Carolina Community Foundation is a public charity that invests and manages charitable funds and assists donors in distributing those funds to nonprofit organizations.

PAMPLICO – Colton Mims and Jacob Howanich, seniors at HannahPamplico High School, are among just 60 students from South and North Carolina recognized as Rising Stars by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) for their accomplishments in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. Mims and Howanich participated in the Champions of Tomorrow-Rising Stars Day presentations during SME’s SOUTH-TEC event on Oct. 24 in Greenville. Their achievements will be recognized at the Nov. 27 meeting of the Florence 2 Board of Trustees. Florence 2 Superintendent Neal Vincent said the district’s new STEM program and expanded CTE opportunities are designed to meet the growing demand for skilled technology jobs. “STEM and CTE jobs are among the best-paid and fastest-growing in the U.S. economy,” Vincent said. “Our goal is for our students to be completely ready.” The two Florence 2 students were selected for their success in the STEM Premier program, which connects STEM students with universities and companies interested in their talents and skills, and the Mechatronics program, a multidisciplinary engineering program combining electrical engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering and control engineering. More than 30,000 students were eligible for the Rising Stars award.
