S.C. Senior Sports Classic held here last week Three hundred and twenty-five seniors gathered here last week for the South Carolina Senior Sports Classic State Games. The five-day event, held May 16-20, offered competition in 27 sports for men and women, 50 years and older. Most of the events were held on the campus of Francis Marion University. Participants competed for awards in their own gender and age category within five year increments. The SC Senior Sports Classic is the only SC sanctioned site for the National Senior Games Association, a member of the US Olympic Committee. It is a quality recreation experience for adults ages 50 years and older designed to promote health, wellness and fitness through sport. The SCSSC encourages every South Carolinian to embrace the opportunity to create and maintain a physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy lifestyle. The goals of the South Carolina Senior Sports Classic programs are: To maintain and improve the health and wellness of South Carolina’s older adults. To provide competitive athletic and recreational experiences that focus attention on the importance of regular exercise in every individual’s personal plan of health. To provide an opportunity for socialization for older adults across the state. To improve the quality and

To enhance the quality of life for South Carolina’s senior adults through education and activity. This is accomplished through a network of year round local games, invitational events and the state

games held annually in May. SCSSC History The Senior Games in South Carolina began in 1985 when Fulton Hines, a former Harlem Globetrotter, walked into the Recreation Department of the City of Florence to inquire about senior athletic programming in the area. He had just returned from an Invitational Sports Festival in St. Louis and wanted to

know if South Carolina had a similar event. The Recreation Director at that time, Debbie Wall, researched senior athletics across the state and had to tell Mr. Hines that there were no similar programs. However, the seed was planted SEE

Firefly mating ‘show’ underway HOPKINS – Park staff and community partners are celebrating cele he annual synchronous fireflies which are appearing at Congaree National Park. The synchronous fireflies are a rare phenomenon and can only be seen in a handful of places throughout the south. The short window of activity for these fascinating creatures is Mid May to Mid June.

The Harry Hampton Visitor Center is open until 9 p.m. through June 10 as part of firefly season. Park staff are available during the evenings to provide information and assist those that want to experience this wonder of nature. As a culmination of the season, the park will host a Firefly Festival on Saturday, May 27. The special event will feature special programs, exhibits, and activi-

McLeod for Health Tennis Tournament proceeds donated to Susan G. Komen SC to McLeod Health and explained that although the tournament was cancelled in 2016 because of Hurricane Matthew, McLeod Health chose to donate their sponsorship after expenses to Susan G. Komen South Carolina. “McLeod Health insisted that we take the funds that they donated as the title sponsor and pay what bills we had incurred and give the balance to the Susan G. Komen South Carolina Foundation. This speaks to the type of organization that McLeod is and the bond between McLeod and Susan G. Komen,” said Buchanan. Susan G. Komen South Carolina Executive Director

The McLeod for Health Florence Open Tennis Tournament presented its 2016 profits, $12,704.09, on May 17 to Susan G.

It calls on us to look backward at our past and forward to the many uncertainties and challenges facing our nation overseas. Important anniversaries over the course of the year have served as powerful reminders of that past. This past April, we commemorated the centennial of the American entry into World War I. President Wilson led us into the “war to end all wars,” ending America’s traditional isolationism. Over a hundred thousand Americans would be killed in World War I, a war that claimed around 17 million total victims. Wilson conceived of the League of Nations as a means of ending costly and wasteful wars, but the US Senate balked at joining the League. The harsh terms of the Treaty of Versailles then created a twentyyear truce rather than a lasting peace. Appalled by the cost of war and intoxicated by the Roaring Twenties, many Americans retreated back into an isolationist attitude, embracing Charles Lindbergh and the America First movement. But in 1939, Hitler invaded Poland, plunging the world into the costliest war in human history. Over the course of just under four years, over 16 million American men and women served in some capacity in the war. Today, fewer than a million World War II service vets are still alive. This year, 2017, is the 75th anniversary of perhaps the most significant year in World War II, for 1942 was essentially the turning point in the war. That year featured Doolittle’s Raid on Tokyo and the battles of Midway, El Alamein, and Stalingrad. Up until 1942, the Axis was victorious on all fronts. After 1942, Axis forces were in full retreat. Where were you in ’42? Seventy-five years ago this year, the classic film “Casablanca” was released. When asked about his nationality, Rick Blaine, played by Humphrey Bogart, replied, “I’m a drunkard.” But Rick could not remain neutral when confronted with the brutal reality of fascism. The premiere of “Casablanca,” which won the Academy Awards’ Best Picture of the Year in 1942, was rushed forward to capitalize on the American landings in North Africa in Operation Torch. Casablanca helped to explain to skeptical Americans why World War II (especially in Europe) was America’s fight. Americans responded to the call and went overseas to fight in record numbers. Just over 400,000 mostly young Americans would never return from their duties in the Second World War. This Memorial Day, many Americans will visit cemeteries, such as Arlington in Virginia, and many more around the nation and the world. This fall will mark 16 years that American troops have been engaged in Afghanistan fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban – a war of unprecedented duration. There are soldiers serving in Afghanistan today who were only toddlers when the Twin Towers in New York were struck on September 11, 2001 by hijacked commercial airliners – an event that changed our world. Over two trillion dollars have been spent trying to bring a measure of stability to Afghanistan. Over 2,000 American soldiers have been killed there, and over 20,000 have been wounded. Even as we commemorate the past, we must consider the many dangers we are confronting today and those that lie ahead. In the Middle East, we must face the challenge posed by ruthless ISIS operatives who have waged a war against the West. The Syrian civil war has claimed well over 300,000 lives and created the worst refugee crisis since World War II. Syria’s president Assad has, on at least two occasions, used chemical weapons against his own people. Putin’s Russia continues to rearm, supports the Assad dictatorship, and threatens its neighbors, including NATO members in the Baltics. The bluster and posturing of Kim Jong-un are increasingly worrisome as the North Korean dictator attempts to gain the technology to develop intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking our homeland. Our political and military leadership must carefully balance the dangers of action and the dangers of inaction in the “hermit kingdom.” Memorial Day imposes a duty on all Americans to remember the sacrifice of our fallen heroes, and to reflect prayerfully on how we can best steer a course through our dangerous and turbulent world. We are compelled to remember the necessity for American engagement in the world, but also its staggering price in terms of blood and treasure.

Nothing’s finer than South Carolina Native South Carolinians will probably agree with the lyrics from “Carolina in the Morning,” the song recorded by Al Jolson and later Dean Martin. “Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning,” they crooned. So what makes South Carolina so fine? Here’s my two cents on the subject and why we are the way we are. First, we live in the deep south. Our food is another reason. We can fry anything and it will turn out delicious. That includes all kinds of meat, vegetables, some fruits, pickles and even Twinkies and Oreos. Tea is our lifeblood and there’s only one way to drink it – iced, sweet and preferably with a slice or wedge of lemon or sprig of fresh mint. Sometimes we add peach or strawberry flavoring just to step it up a notch. We love our barbecue which is a meat – not an event. In South Carolina, barbecue is pork doused in a vinegar or mustard-based sauce. And, we love to pick it right off the pig carcass laid out on the grill. We proudly present our barbecued pigs at parties and celebrations we call pig pickin’s. South Carolinians can make a feast

Brenda Harrison Editor

of sandwiches made with slices of juicy homegrown tomatoes slattered with Duke’s Mayo, salt and pepper. Other summer delicacies include boiled peanuts, sliced watermelon, homemade peach ice cream and fresh squeezed lemonade. South Carolinians are friendly people. We don’t know strangers and will strike up a conversation anywhere with anyone, especially when standing in a long line, such as a grocery checkout or ladies bathroom queue. This is our nature because we were raised to be friendly and polite. It also passes the time while waiting and we learn things, i.e., where you are from and who are your mama and daddy. We wave and smile to anyone we pass or passes by us, whether we know them or not. We hold doors open

for the people. We say “bless you” whenever someone sneezes. South Carolinians and other Southerners answer our elders with “yes sir” or “yes ma'am.” We mean no disrespect, we were raised to do so. We offer a hand when someone needs help, and will go out of our way to be polite. Not because we have to, but because we are trained that way and it comes naturally. We give directions using churches as landmarks because there’s always one nearby. In the summer, women wear sandals when dressed up and flip flops as casual footwear. At home, we go barefoot. South Carolina women love designer handbags and carry them with pride. College sports is a religion here. We're either a Clemson Tiger or a South Carolina Gamecock fan. Outsiders claim we have an accent, but we don’t realize how strong it is until we visit or move somewhere else. I love this state and its people, and I’m proud to be a South Carolinian!

FOI reform comes at last By Bill Rogers It’s been a long time coming, but citizens of South Carolina will soon have faster and cheaper access to public documents. For seven years, the Legislature has for one reason or the other not passed an FOI reform bill. They did so on the last day of the session this year, and it offers some real improvements in our state’s open government law. The House, led by Reps. Weston Newton and Bill Taylor, pushed hard for the reform and in the end concurred in a lastminute Senate amendment doing away with establishment of an FOIA hearing officer. But the good of the law far outweighs the loss of easier enforcement. Perhaps the most meaningful part of the reform deals with response time. The new law changes the amount of time an agency has to respond from 15

BILL ROGERS Executive Director S.C Press Association

days to 10 days. That’s a pretty good compromise. Note that Georgia requires a 3-day response, but they have exemptions. The law also sets up a specific time for an FOI request to be fulfilled. In the past, a few agencies abused the law by dragging out their response for months. Now they have 30 days in most cases. The law also limits how much an agency can charge for documents. In the past, some charged outrageous amounts to discourage release. Now, they can charge no more than the prevailing commercial rate for producing copies. Agencies may also require up to a 25%

deposit before beginning a search. The law encourages electronic transmission of public records and says copy charges may not be made for electronic records. But the agency is not required to create an electronic version when it does not exist. As to police dashcams, the law specifies that any recording involving an incident involving death, injury, property damage or the use of deadly force must be released. However, it allows police to go before a Circuit Court judge to argue that withholding the recording is more important than the public interest in disclosure. Filing an FOI suit has been a slow process, often dragging on for a year or more. The new law requires an initial Circuit Court hearing be set within 10 days of service of legal papers on the parties involved. The law augments the criminal violation provision and sets up a civil fine of $500 for arbi-

trary and capricious violations of the law. To deal with improper requests, the law allows a public body to request a hearing on requests that are unduly burdensome, overly broad, vague or repetitive. The law takes effect upon the signature of Gov. Henry McMaster, who supported many of these changes when he worked on the Ethics Reform Study Committee several years ago. With the removal of the hearing officer, enforcement of the law remains problematic. But we’ve taken a big step for more transparency in our state.

Bill Rogers is executive director of the S.C. Press Association, an advocate for open government.

“All about your family and friends”

Rural America deserves a champion By Anna Johnson, Center for Rural Affairs The Center for Rural Affairs has fought on behalf of rural communities for nearly 45 years. We are heartened by U.S. Department of Agriculture Sec. Perdue’s expressions of support for rural communities during his early days in office. However, we are concerned about his current path. On May 11, Purdue proposed eliminating the position of Undersecretary for Rural Development and moving oversight of Rural Development agencies to the Deputy Secretary, USDA’s second-in-command. If this change is made, we lose the most significant rural advocate within USDA. Rural America stands to suffer as a result. Although USDA has a broad

mission to support food and agriculture, Rural Development is the only body with the explicit directive to support rural communities. Rural Development’s broad and complex responsibilities include: Providing loans for treating wastewater and constructing homes; Facilitating innovation and encouraging success in entrepreneurship and small business; Supporting rural broadband access; And more. This announcement follows President Trump’s proposal to cut USDA’s budget by more than 20 percent. If Perdue truly wishes to support rural America, he should not eliminate the position of Undersecretary for Rural Development nor support deep cuts to the budget. Instead, he should

appoint a strong advocate for rural communities to the position, and support a budget that allows Rural Development to carry out its mission. Rural America deserves a champion who is not distracted by the demands of managing the diverse responsibilities of USDA. By retaining the Undersecretary position, USDA will be better positioned to work with rural people and achieve a vision for America that includes thriving rural communities and economic opportunity for all. Established in 1973, the Center for Rural Affairs is a private, non-profit organization working to strengthen small businesses, family farms and ranches, and rural communities through action oriented programs addressing social, economic, and environmental issues.

This funding would not be possible without the support of the community and donors, Hyler noted.

SCA luncheon honors Bubby Floyd

BUBBY FLOYD WITH REGGIE SANDERS

The Senior Citizens Association’s 13th Annual Dorothy Blackwell Luncheon was held Friday, May 12, at the Leatherman Senior Center. SCA Executive Director Linda Mitchell Johnson welcomed guests and introduced a surprise celebrity guest – professional baseball player Reggie Sanders. “We want to give Bubby (Floyd) a memory that would last a lifetime and Reggie Sanders helped deliver just that. Bubby has given so much to the senior citizens and youth in Florence County. We wanted him to feel as special as he makes the seniors feel,” said Mrs. Johnson. SCA and Reggie Sanders arranged a gift for Bubby Floyd involving an all-expense paid, private dinner for the two. The newfound friends will arrange the occasion. Reggie agreed to spend one-on-one time with Bubby sponsored by SCA, but upon delivering the gift, Reggie changed it to a family event. “Reggie Sanders has a warm

and generous personality. He fell right in with the staff and the rest of crew upon arrival,” remarked Jesseca Horton, SCA Marketing Coordinator. SCA presented Reggie with a donation to his foundation that focuses on autism. “I especially appreciated all of the genuine love and unity that my mother and I felt amongst such great people,” said Reggie. “As a giver myself, I could not have been more honored to be surrounded by men and women who lead by example. I am looking forward to part two (lunch with Bubby Floyd) and all that the future holds for the continuing work that will be done to move Florence forward in a positive and uplifting way. In a room full of leaders, I indeed was humbled.” Sanders wasn’t the only celebrity attending. Chef LaTasha McCutchen, winner of “Hell’s Kitchen”, Season 13, prepared her culinary delights for the sponsors and attendees. “She really puts her heart into

her work, and it shows. SCA could not be more pleased with the delivery of her outstanding culinary talents,” said Horton. The Leatherman Senior Center was bursting with excitement that Friday. The annual fundraiser luncheon is named after Mrs. Dorothy McCown Blackwell who served as SCA’s first executive director from 1969-1986. She was instrumental in establishing and developing senior services in Florence County. This luncheon continues year after year to help fund the homebound senior services in Florence County. Meals on Wheels is just one of those services, along with home care and transportation. Currently, there are 331 senior citizens on the waiting list to receive a meal. The annual Dorothy Blackwell Luncheon helps fund the Meals on Wheels program to help those seniors in need. SCA’s primary focus is to assure the physical and mental well-being of the county’s senior citizens, to enhance their quality of life and to assist them in maintain-

ing independence. Platinum sponsors for this event were Dr. Eddie and Kay Floyd, The Betty Campbell Foundation, Town of Timmonsville, Lake City Community Foundation, City of Lake City, PGBA/Blue Cross Blue Shield and SCA/Lake City Senior Center. Gold sponsors were Sen. Hugh Leatherman, International Knife and Saw, Trinity Baptist Church, Honda of South Carolina, Carolinas Hospital System and King Cadillac. Silver sponsors were Alpine Agency, Seaboard Properties of Florence, City of Johnsonville, Pepsi Cola of Florence, Wilson Senior Care, HopeHealth, Nan Ya Plastics, Accustaff, The Citizens Bank, St. Mark Holiness and Hotel Florence. “We are humbled by the support and cannot thank the sponsors enough,” said Linda Johnson. To donate to SCA’s homebound services, contact Johnson at 843-6696761.

NAACP recognizes African American seniors For the second year, the Florence Branch of the NAACP recognized the top five African American seniors in each of the three high schools at a special program on Sunday, May 21, held at New Ebenezer Baptist Church’s Strive Hard Recreational Enrichment Center. “Quite often the accomplishments of high achieving African American students go unnoticed, and frequent, unlimited media attention to negative images of the African American students lead to discussions about their road to destruction, particularly The Pipeline to Prison,” said Madie Robinson, President of the Florence Branch of the NAACP. “We challenge the notion that the majority of our stu-

dents are headed down the pipeline. Once again, we are proud to present what we deem the way that a great number of our students are taking: ‘The Highway to Higher Education in partnership with Florence One Schools,’” said Robinson. The program shared these students’ positive stories via videotape. The top five African American seniors from each high school will also make a connection with Florence One middle school students who have the potential to become high achievers as well. “It is our hope that within the next few years, the middle school students will be recognized as high school seniors who are also on the

Highway to Higher Education journey,” said Robinson. Florence One Superintendent Dr. Randy Bridges added to Robinson’s statement saying, “We are pleased for the second year in a row to partner with the Florence Branch of the NAACP in recognizing these outstanding seniors. Also introducing the graduates to 45 rising ninth graders makes this program unique. It is our expectation that these highly successful graduates will serve as examples and mentors for the students who will be entering the most challenging and rewarding four years of their young lives.” Students recognized at the Highway to Higher Education Program included:

South Florence’s Amber Davis, Kira DuBose, Jonathan Ellison, Rodrianna Gaddy, and Kejuan Robinson; West Florence’s Jessica Davis, Kaitlin Keitt, Monique McCoy, Ryan McKinney, and Alyssa Maloney; Wilson’s Erykah Buckner, Bryan Miles, Vershelle Peterson, Blake Walker and Ayanna Woolridge. The program was sponsored by local citizens, community organizations and local churches. For more information on the Highway to Higher Education Program and how to become involved, contact Madie Robinson, President of the Florence Branch of the NAACP at 843-622-1482 or 843-245-2022.

Pee Dee Coalition joins Iyana’s playground effort Eight-year-old Iyana Lowery loved to play outdoors and she especially loved going to the local playground. Thanks to a shared vision of friends, family and Pee Dee Coalition, the young homicide victim and her mother will be memorialized with a new playground for residents of New Beginnings Transitional Shelter, near Cheraw. Iyana’s body was discovered in a remote area near McColl, on Mother’s Day, nine days after her mother’s body was discovered in their Bennettsville home. “I’m happy and honored,” said Patty Brown, Iyana’s aunt. “This is something Iyana would love because

she loved playing in the playground. We’re hurting extremely bad. It’s something you never quit thinking about. It’s the emptiness inside your heart. Iyana was a sweet, innocent free-spirited child.” As Delores Lowery, Iyana’s grandmother, sat on her porch with tears welling in her eyes, she said “Iyana loved the outdoors and going to the park so much. It was a tragedy, but now Iyana has a park. No one can say to her it’s time to go. She was such a sweet little girl. I feel wonderful. I feel honored. I love PDC so much. Iyana is walking around with her mother in heaven smiling and saying I have a park.” According to Janice M. Hamlin, New Beginnings Shelter Services Coordinator, “no one has a crystal ball as to why people do what they do. All we can do is offer support services for victims and families. We just want to honor this innocent child and give some solace to the family. Like the entire community, we are heartbroken. This is the sort of tragedy we at PDC are trying

to prevent through our services. But we can’t do it alone. We need support from our community.” Murder charges for Iyana’s death have been filed against Jejauncey Fernando Harrington, 32, of Bennettsville. Harrington was also charged with the May 5 stabbing death of Iyana’s mother, Ella Lowery, also of Bennettsville. Pee Dee Coalitions’ New Beginnings Transitional Shelter is a fully-staffed center offering transitional shelter and skills development training leading to independent living for abused women and their children.
