Monument honoring Vietnam veterans to be unveiled BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. A new memorial honoring Vietnam veterans will be dedicated at the Veterans Day Ceremony set for 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 in Florence Veterans Park. This recognition may be a long time coming, but greatly appreciated by four area Vietnam veterans who talked about their memories of serving in what was called the Vietnam Conflict. There was no fanfare or special welcome ceremonies for these soldiers after their service in this controversial war. “It was very different. We didn’t come back in groups like soldiers today,” commented Henry Moree of Society Hill. Moree, a Marine, remembers dreaming about a cheeseburger on his return from Vietnam. On his way home, while still in uniform, he stopped at restaurant in his hometown, “I didn’t have any civilian clothes, all I had was my uniforms,” he explained. “When I walked in the restaurant, I was told that I was welcome to eat there, but not in uniform,” he recalled. Roosevelt Wallace, U.S. Army, first stepped on U.S. soil in California after leaving Vietnam. He remembers there were barriers erected at the airport to shield returning soldiers from angry protestors. John Galloway, a Navy veteran, doesn’t remember anything specifically targeting him, but he does recalls whispers, such as “baby killer,” said behind his back. Roosevelt Wallace of Darlington, joined the Army in 1967, got special training for reconnoissance at Ft. Benning, GA. He was sent to Vietnam in June of 1968. In August he was wounded and sent to Japan for medical treatment. He went back to Vietnam in March of 1969 but got a different assignment – this time serving on APC tracks. Wallace was wounded a second time in April of 1969, sent

He exited military service in 1970, receiving the Purple Heart, first and second. John Galloway of Florence County joined the U.S. Navy in 1966 and served several tours of Vietnam on the Navy Destroyer, USS Duncan (DER 874) from 1967 until 1970. He was a gunners mate. Galloway left service in 1970, but rejoined the Navy in 1973 and served until 1993, including service in the Gulf War. He retired with 26 years of service. John Pendergrass, Florence, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, served in Vietnam from 1970-72 at Phan Rang Air Base. As security police, Galloway’s job included providing flight line and base security. After leaving the Air Force, he joined the Air National Guard, retiring with 21 years of military service.

Henry Moree of Society Hill joined the U.S. Marines after being drafted by the Army in April of 1969. Following training at Parris Island, he was sent to Vietnam aboard the USS La Salle in early 1970. While serving with the First

Recon in the bush near Da Nang, he was wounded and flown to the Vietnam Navy Hospital. He returned to the bush where he served until exiting in 1971. He then served in the U.S. Marine Reserves for a short while.

Veteran’s Day ceremony A Veterans Day ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 in Florence Veterans Park. The guest speaker will be US Army retired MG Richard S. “Steve” Siegfried. The Vietnam monument will be unveiled and dedicated during the program. Also a new panel to the Wall of Honor will be unveiled. A SEE

American Legion Post 1 more than baseball sponsor

DO YOU REMEMBER?

The Fred H. Sexton American Legion Post 1 at 3631 E. Palmetto St. may be best known for its Legion baseball team, but members are busy serving veterans, their families and the community. Its four core pillars are veterans, national security, Americanism, and children and youth. Any veteran or family member can contact the post for assistance. Members have built wheelchair ramps, helped pay bills, provided family support at funerals and wakes.They have contacts for those needing Veterans Administration assistance. Post members greet deployed veterans when they return and gather to see departing troops off. They participate at graveside ceremonies for Legion members. They take great pride in joining the Wreaths Across America Program and placing thousands of wreaths at the Florence National Cemetery. For the youth in the area they sponsor high school students in the Boys State Program where future leaders are educated in government, team work and public service. They hold annual oratorical competitions for high school students to help them earn scholarship money. Their biggest high profile program is the American Legion baseball team. One of the best in the country, they had state champions two years in a row. SEE

All Saints’ Church celebrates 60 years campus: All Saints’ Episcopal Day School and All Saints’ Parent’s Morning Out. In 1960, All Saints’ Church opened All Saints’ Episcopal Day School (3K-6 grade), which offers a very high standard of education while caring for the spiritual needs of the individual. They are truly “Building Strong Foundations.” All Saints’ Parent’s Morning Out (PMO) cares for children from 3 months through 3K, providing a safe environment for children to learn and grow in their early years. The impetus for Pelican House in Florence also came to the members of All Saints’ Church in 1979, when they identified that housing was the greatest need for the elderly in the Florence area. They worked together with Cumberland Methodist Church and the name ‘Pelican House’ was suggested as both churches shared a heritage through the ‘Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts’

By the Rev. Jason Hamshaw, new rector at All Saints’ All Saints’ Church is a Christian community in the Anglican tradition with a lively history in Florence. This year, we celebrated the occasion of two great anniversariesthe 60th year of All Saints’ Church and the 500th anniversary of The Reformation. As we celebrated our history, we sought to honor the 32 charter families of All Saints’ Church, who planted this church from St. John’s Florence. These families shared a vision more than 60 years ago of reaching the growing community of Florence, and that vision is carried out still today. So, on the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of All Saints’ Church and the 500th Anniversary of The Reformation, All Saints’ Church presented St. John’s Church with The Luther Bible (1819). All Saints’ Church is believed to have come in possession of The Luther Bible through the Barnwell family who collected many rare books over their years. The Rev. R. W. Barnwell was a priest at St. John’s, and his sister-in-law (Miss Martha Brunson) gave the first acre of land on which All Saints’ Church was built. The giving of this bible therefore is not only tied to the 500th anniversary of The Reformation, but also to the history of both churches. With this

ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 1959 symbol, we are happy to celebrate the partnership of Anglican churches standing on The Word of God. A phrase no doubt used by Martin Luther himself comes to mind: Verbum Domini Manet in Aeternum (‘The Word of the Lord endures forever’). Many of our founding members have passed away, but their vision lives on in Florence and some of their families still attend All Saints’ Church. We have two schools operating out of our

whose adopted Christian symbol was the Pelican. There is much to say about the dedication of All Saints’ Church parishioners and their love for the community of Florence. Our deacons give a little insight into our love of service and learning. Deacon Barbara Holliman is a professor at Francis Marion University and Deacon Sam Turbeville serves as chaplain to the police force in Florence. They both serve the community with open hearts and hands. As we celebrate our rich and full vision from generations past, we look forward to our future in Florence, as we seek to build the Kingdom of God, while loving and serving the community here.

VIEWPOINT

Do no harm: What would Hippocrates think? By Richard D. Kocur A core tenant of the pledge taken by all physicians is their promise first and foremost to do no harm. A physician’s vow to care for patients in a manner which does not cause physical, mental, or emotional harm has guided treatment decisions since the days of Hippocrates. Recently, however, the National Health Service, known as the NHS, Great Britain’s socialized medical system, has seemingly trumped this aspect of the physician’s oath with a more pressing consideration: Do not waste limited resources. The NHS has recently released treatment guidelines stating that patients who are obese or who smoke will be banned from receiving “non-urgent” surgeries unless they first lose weight or quit smoking. While the NHS claims the new guidelines will increase the level of personal responsibility taken by patients, the healthcare bureaucrats behind this rule also acknowledge that it will help to free up limited healthcare resources. Any medical professional knows that it is in a patient’s best interest to be physically prepared for a surgical procedure, which may mean stopping smoking or losing weight. But don’t be fooled – allocation of limited healthcare resources is the real driver of the NHS’s decision. As a government-run healthcare system, the NHS faces a squeeze on resources from all fronts. First, the demand for healthcare in the U.K. is increasing due to an aging population and an increase in long-term medical conditions. Next, funding for large, state-run social programs like healthcare continue to shrink. Finally, the rate of primary-care physicians entering the system has not kept pace with demand, thus reducing patients’ access to first-line medical providers. The NHS limits on care afforded to two specific patient populations raises significant ethical questions, places bureaucrats on a slippery slope in determining treatment necessity, and sends a mixed message to patients who for years have been told that free and allencompassing government healthcare would always be available no matter the circumstance. In the final analysis, however, the decision of the NHS cuts to the heart of why socialized medicine ultimately fails those whom it is designed to serve. In a socialized healthcare system, there are only so many resources with which to work and the bottom line plays a disproportionately large role in healthcare decisions. The National Health Service claims that its move is designed to help “free up limited resources.” More bluntly put, this move amounts to rationing care for smokers and the obese; taking medical care decisions out of the hands of patients and physicians. What would Hippocrates think about that?

Friends make our lives better Moosa Rahat

Where would we be without friends? Good friends are more valuable than gold.

Some talk to you in their free time and some free their time to talk to you. Author unknown.

Following are some quotes about the importance of friends and friendship: The act of friendship is different from the act of loving. In a relationship of friendship both parties care for each other and give and receive benefits from each other. This reciprocity may not exist in the act of loving, for we may love someone without our beloved giving anything in return or even knowing that he or she is being loved by us. – Alireza Nurbakhsh “Good friends are the rare jewels of life... difficult to find and impossible to replace!”– Thomas Jefferson In life we never lose friends, we simply learn who the real ones are. Author unknown. True friends are like diamonds, precious and rare. False friends are like leaves, found everywhere. Author unknown.

Brenda Harrison Editor

The only way to have a friend is to be a friend. – Ralph Waldo Emerson Best friends make good times better and hard times easier. Author unknown. You don’t lose friends, because real friends can never be lost. You lose people masquerading as friends and you’re better for it. –Mandy Hale Time and good friends are two things that become more valuable the older you get. – Linda Poindexter The most memorable people in life will be the friends who loved you when you weren’t very lovable. Author unknown Friendship is not about people who act true to your face. It’s about people who remain true behind your back. –

In life have a friend that is like a mirror and a shadow; a mirror doesn’t lie and a shadow never leaves.– Dodinsky Best friends are the people you can do anything and nothing with and still have the best time. – Susane Pieffer Real friendship is when your friend comes over to your house and then you both just take a nap. Author unknown Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life and said, “I’m here for you and proved it.” Unknown A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. – Walter Winchell Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light. – Helen Keller If you have nothing in life but a good friend, you are rich. – Michelle Kwan

Drug makers are leading the way on R&D By Kenneth E. Thorpe Over five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. While a few drugs can temporarily alleviate symptoms, there’s no treatment that slows the progression of the underlying disease; so family members watch helplessly as their loved ones’ minds fade away. Drug companies are determined to end this suffering. So far, 99 percent of Alzheimer’s clinical trials have failed, costing companies billions. Despite these repeated stumbles, firms are undeterred and currently have more than 70 potential Alzheimer’s treatments in development. Despite these investments, some argue that drug companies aren’t devoting enough resources to research and development. The Institute for New Economic Thinking issued a scathing paper this summer. It condemns drug makers for buying back company stock and paying dividends to shareholders, rather than spending every available cent on research and development (R&D). The Institute urges the government to push aside these private companies and take a more active role in developing medicines. This criticism is unfair – and the recommendation to elbow aside the private sector is dangerous. Without the hundreds of billions of dollars commit-

ted by private-sector researchers, it will be virtually impossible to cure Alzheimer’s, cancer and dozens of other scourges. The pharmaceutical industry invests a much higher percentage of revenues into R&D than other sectors. The top 18 drug companies, according to the Institute, spent an average of 16 percent of proceeds on R&D from 2006 to 2015. Compare that to the automobile industry. Despite the prevailing narrative of a “spare no expense” race to develop self-driving vehicles, the sector reinvests just four percent of revenues into R&D, according to consulting firm PwC. Pharmaceutical companies’ investments have led to lifesaving therapies. Since 2000, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved more than 550 new medicines. The most impressive breakthroughs are yet to come. Globally, more than 7,000 new treatments are in development. Seventy percent of these medicines use completely new methods to treat an illness. Consider CAR-T cell therapy, a technique that reengineers a patient’s own immune

system to kill tumors. The experimental medicine, which received FDA approval in August, put many patients with advanced leukemia into remission during clinical trials. It’s naïve to think that firms will continue making these costly, risky investments if there’s no chance of earning a return. Drug companies deliver enormous benefits to society, but they’re not charities. If they can’t offer investors a chance at attractive returns, they won’t be able to raise funding for future research. The government is in no position to supersede these firms. Private R&D spending dwarfs the National Institutes of Health’s $32 billion budget. Given the political realities in Washington, does anyone seriously think the government is able and willing to exponentially increase funding for medical research? Americas’ physical and financial health depends on continued private medical R&D. Currently, 40 percent of Americans suffer from a chronic illness. These diseases account for 90 percent of total U.S. health care costs. New treatments and cures offer the best hope of tempering this spend-

First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

ing. If pharmaceutical companies develop a new treatment for Alzheimer’s disease by 2025, Americans could save $220 billion by 2030. Critics of the pharmaceutical industry say firms don’t spend all that much on research and development. If those accusations were true, who deserves credit for the hundreds of new medications that improve people’s lives and lower health care costs?

Kenneth E. Thorpe is a professor of health policy at Emory University and the chairman of the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease.

October that works best for them. As part of the two day celebration, students from FDTC traveled to Sonoco Products in Hartsville to tour the facility on Wednesday. Then on Thursday morning, the SCATE Center hosted their annual Industry Consortium Partnership Breakfast at the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology. Students from FDTC were greeted at Sonoco by Todd Scherich, Director of Engineering and Kristi Raines, Employer Brand & University Relations Strategist who welcomed the students and gave a brief presentation about Sonoco, who they were, and what they do.

shown a short video about the roots of the company which began and is headquartered here in the South Carolina. Students were also invited to ask questions and tour the engineering facility, which included meeting other technicians and viewing Sonoco’s technology equipment. Dave Edwards, Instructor Engineering Technologies, who helped organize the students for the day said, “This tour complements the materials we’re sharing in the classroom” in reference to why this tour was beneficial for his FDTC students. Scherich, who conducted the tour also emphasized to be successful as an engineer “math is very important” and the future of engineering is in need of more “skilled workers” than unskilled so getting the training to complement your coursework is important.” FDTC has an active internship program for their technology students. The Industry Consortium Partnership assists in supporting this effort. The FDTC SCATE Internship Program provides an educational experience in which students complement their academic studies with relevant work experience. The Industry Consortium breakfast has been hosted each year since 2005 by FDTC and the SCATE Center with the goal of connecting industry leaders with student talent to increase the pool of well qualified techni-

cians. Over 65 individuals attended, representing 27 companies from the Pee Dee region. James Richter, director of Workforce Development and Member Relations for the SC Manufacturing Alliance as well as executive director of SC Future Makers, was the guest speaker. Richter spoke about the importance of developing a strong pipeline of qualified employees to fill the manufacturing sectors job needs. “SC Future Makers was created to connect emerging talents to opportunities companies are looking for,” he said. About SCATE: SCATE is a National ATE Center for Expanding Excellence in Technician Education.

McLeod staff collaboration results in miraculous patient recovery Kenny Allen had come to McLeod Regional Medical Center on Aug. 31, for a minor outpatient procedure. The procedure was a success, and he was in the process of being discharged when he went into cardiac arrest, collapsed and coded. Medical teams immediately responded and began chest compressions and respiratory resuscitation. They worked for 90 minutes, used two crash carts and shocked him 10 times to revive him the first time he coded. While in the process of being transported to the Trauma Surgical Care Unit (TSCU), Allen coded again. Additional shocking was necessary to revive him again, and he was admitted to TSCU. When his condition stabilized, he was taken to the cardiac catheterization laboratory where a stent was placed in the coronary artery to regain blood flow. Following this procedure, Allen was admitted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) in critical condition and required a ventilator to help him breathe. His condition quickly improved and he was able to breathe on his own. Buddy Freeman, RN, Patient Care Supervisor said, “I thought several times Mr. Allen was not going to make it. In fact, I was sure he was not going to make it, and if he did there would be some kind of everlasting effect on him that was not

step Allen took was ordered by God, everyone was where they were and did what they do every day here at McLeod. It was all in God’s plan.”

Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28

KENNY ALLEN is reunited on Oct. 31 with the McLeod medical teams who saved his life two months ago. He is pictured with some of his ‘angels’ that cared for him that day. good. When I saw him in CCU the next day he was sitting up in bed grinning and laughing. It was amazing.” Medical teams from various hospital departments including Day Hospital, Emergency Services, Trauma, Cardiac Care, Surgical Services and Anesthesia all worked as one to save Allen’s life. Through this group effort Allen survived and did not experience any after effects. On Oct. 31, two months

after his cardiac arrest, Mr. Allen and his wife Barbara returned to McLeod Regional Medical Center where they were reunited with team members who were instrumental in his miraculous recovery. McLeod Day Hospital staff prepared a sunshine themed celebration in his honor. They chose this theme because one of the last things Allen remembers before he collapsed was Amy Prescott, RN, Recovery

Room Supervisor, singing “You Are My Sunshine” to him in the recovery room. Amy is known to sing hymns to her patients while they are in the recovery process. On this day, however she unknowingly chose a song that is special to Mr. Allen. It is a song that he sang to his daughter while she was growing up. Mr. Allen’s recovery continues with his participation in the McLeod Cardiac Rehabilitation program at the

Eastern Carolina Community Foundation (ECCF) will coordinate a collaborative giving campaign called #GivingTuesdayPeeDee for regional nonprofits on Nov. 28. Using #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, as its inspiration, #GivingTuesdayPeeDee will promote area nonprofits to inspire philanthropy in the Pee Dee on this day. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become an international movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving all together on one day. #GivingTuesday provides a platform for nonprofits to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also 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 small 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.

FDTC’s McDonald named Coach of the Year

FDTC STINGERS HEAD COACH PRESTON MCDONALD GIVES INSTRUCTIONS TO A BASE RUNNER

Following Florence-Darlington Technical College’s (FDTC) first visit to the JUCO World Series in Grand Junction, CO, men’s Tech Stingers head baseball coach, Preston McDonald has been named the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and Diamond Sports National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) D1 Eastern Region Coach of the Year. He will be traveling to Indianapolis in January for the coach’s awards banquet. McDonald was also named NJCAA D1 Eastern District Coach of the Year earlier this year. This is his eighth year as the men’s baseball head coach at FDTC. “A coach of the year award is more of an award for the entire program,” McDonald said. “A head coach can’t win an award without having great players and assistant coaches and the team having an amazing season. It just puts in perspective that we had one of the top-10 teams in the nation.” McDonald is a native of Sumter and has served as the head baseball coach for the FDTC Stingers since May 2009. At just 24-years-old, McDonald became one of the youngest NJCAA coaches in the country. Earlier this year, the men Tech Stingers won the Region X Tournament in Burlington, North Carolina as

well as the Eastern District Championship that was held at Francis Marion University. The success berthed FDTC an opportunity to compete in the JUCO World Series. The Stingers finished out the 2017 season ranked seventh in the country with 42 wins, the second most in school history. “Having the opportunity to get to Grand Junction and play in the JUCO World Series was an amazing experience for our players and coaches and a huge step forward for our program,” McDonald said. “It’s something I’ve dreamed of since I’ve taken over here. It’s an exciting time to be a Stinger.” Since arriving at FDTC, McDonald has coached 48 NCAA Division 1 baseball signees and more than 100 total former Stingers that have gone on to play baseball at four-year colleges. McDonald has also coached 11 players that have been selected in the MLB Draft. Most notably, Trent Autry who played on the JUCO World Series team was drafted in the 17th round by the Arizona Diamondbacks at season’s end over the summer. Over the past eight seasons, McDonald has amassed a winning record of 273-165 for a .623 winning percentage. He has averaged more than 34 wins per season since he became head coach at FDTC.

Greek ladies donate $5,300 to Help4Kids The Ladies Philoptochos Society of the Transfiguration of Our Savior Greek Orthodox Church presented a check for $5,350 to Help4Kids on Oct. 25. The money came from proceeds from a charity fashion show, “Fall Into Fashion,” hosted by the society on Oct. 14. This donation will go a long way to assist Help4Kids in supplying weekend food bags for over 2,000 “food insecure” children in all five Florence County school districts, seven Head Start schools and Palmetto Youth Academy, said Diane Welsh, founder and president of this non-profit organization. Help4Kids Florence is a program that supplies food packs to elementary schools in Florence County. Each Friday children at risk of being hungry get sent home with their backpack full of food items for the weekend, providing them food for Saturday and Sunday. “Our goal is that these children return to school on Monday rested, fed, and ready to learn,” said Welsh. She said it costs $2.17 to pack a brown paper bag with non-perishable food items, such as oatmeal, instant grits, applesauce, Ramen noodles, pork and beans, Vienna sausage, fruit and grain bars, and juice packs – enough to feed a child over the weekend. Robin Gioldasis, chairwomen of the fashion show and a member of the Ladies Philoptochos Society, said supporting and creating awareness of Help4Kids was the motive for the fashion show and the desire to do something different. Another fund raiser for the society is the annual Greek Pastry Sale and Dinner which will be held this year on Nov. 16 and 17 in the church’s Hellenic Center. Welsh commented that Help4Kids always needs volunteers to hold food drives, pack food bags and make cash donations. For more information on Help4Kids, log onto their website www.help4kidsflorence.org.

Residents can get help with health insurance

Friends of Revolutionary Rivers meeting The Friends of Revolutionary Rivers (FOREVR) next meets Nov.14 at 6 p.m. at Lynches River County Park, as the group continues to increase stewardship and conservation of 60 miles of Lynches River designated as a National Recreation Trail. The public is invited to attend to show their support for FOREVR or learn more about the SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail. FOREVR is coordinated with help from the National Park Service through the Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program. It is a special account of the Eastern Carolina Community Foundation. As a National Recreation Trail, the SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail is a component of the National Park Service. “We are excited to be working in partnership with the Friends of Revolutionary Rivers in making this one of the premier water trails in the State of South Carolina,” said Bill Lane, South Carolina/North Carolina Project Manager of the Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance Program. “The trail will provide opportunities for recreation, conservation and historic education.”

FOREVR includes the Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), Florence County, Town of Johnsonville, Department of Natural Resources, SC Forestry Commission, Pee Dee Land Trust, Eastern SC Heritage Region, SC National Heritage Corridor, local outfitters and landowners. “The progress we have made to bring to life the rich history of Lynches River and share it as a major tourism and educational asset is tremendous, but the effort must be sustained for that to continue,” said Holly Beaumier, Executive Director of the CVB. Scheduled to attend the Nov. 14 meeting is guest speaker Matt Butler, Environmental Projects Manager with Sound Rivers Inc., which protects the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico Rivers in North Carolina. He will provide insight into how Sounds Rivers developed platform camping sites, which provide floors for

campers to pitch tents upon and greatly improves the outdoors experience. The SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail winds through the picturesque Lynches River from Lynches River County Park to the swampy former staging areas of Revolutionary War hero General Francis Marion. It was Marion’s clever utilization of the cypress swamplands to evade the British that earned him the Swamp Fox nickname. The Revolutionary River Trail links up with the Stagecoach Hiking Trail at Lynches River County Park, and allows paddlers to float through the scenic swampland once the site of guerrilla warfare attacks led by Patriots against Loyalists. The trail also features a series of short excursions and overnight rustic camping opportunities provided by local outfitters. Self-guided driving tours to remote Francis Marion Trail sites also are available. For more information on the SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail, please visit visitflo.com/sc-revolutionary-rivers.

If you’re interested in signing up for health coverage on the Health Insurance Marketplace – but you find the information overwhelming or confusing – Carolinas Hospital System is ready to help.

This service is available at the hospital Monday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Open enrollment runs Nov. 1–Dec. 15. This marks the federal government’s fifth annual campaign to extend healthcare coverage to more Americans, specifically to those who otherwise wouldn’t have access to services or who would face a financial crisis due to medical bills. “We have helped hundreds of individuals enroll on the Marketplace since it first launched four years ago,” said Gary Malaer, CEO. “It’s very gratifying to help individuals enroll knowing they will be able to access healthcare when they need it. It’s a relief for so many people.” Carolinas Hospital System is also offering free one-onone assistance throughout the open enrollment period at the hospital. Residents can schedule appointments by calling 843674-4564 in Florence. These services will also be provided at Carolinas Hospital System – Marion. For more information on the services in Marion, call 843-431-2519. Certified assisters will help with plan comparisons, determining any tax credits or discounts, and filling out applications.
