before July 7. The winner will be announced on Aug. 7. For complete rules and regula-

tions, and to submit a business for consideration, visit the website, www.florencedowntown.com.

Downtown progress continues Full Forward The renaissance of downtown Florence showed no signs of a slowdown during 2016 and 2017 is shaping up to be another banner year. With over $130 million dollars in public and private investment made in recent years and an additional $84 million coming in the next 12 months, the level of investment and energy downtown is beyond exciting. Ten new restaurants have opened in the past five years and more will open in 2017. Downtown saw the opening of two upscale apartment projects in late 2016 and both are almost at full capacity after being opened only a short time. The Carter Health Science Training Facility opened this past year and now third and fourth year medical students from USC School of

Medicine, as well as Francis Marion University nurse practitioner and physician assistant students, are added to the mix of shoppers, diners and downtown workers who stroll the streets of downtown. FMU will expand its health care program footprint downtown with more programs after an $8 million renovation to the old post office building is completed. Florence-Darlington Technical College’s Health Science facility is also located downtown and now has more than 1,500 students and faculty coming to its downtown facility for the healthcare training programs which include their nursing school. Other additions to the healthcare related projects include Hope Health which is completing phase two of its new facility on North Irby,

and Stokes Regional Eye Center which just relocated their offices to a new $5 million facility in the 300 block of West Evans Street. Just two blocks away, McLeod Medical Center continues its expansion program and now has over 6,500 employees. These projects put more “feet on the street” which creates traffic for restaurants and downtown merchants. Florence County is under construction with its new $40 million Judicial Center on North Irby which represents another major investment and beautiful addition to the downtown historic district. The facility will be completed later this year.

DOWNTOWN PROGRESS FROM PAGE 1A As progress continues in historic downtown Florence, so did the need for more parking. The new public parking garage at Cheves and Irby Streets is now open as well as the new parking lots that were created on North Dargan Street. Parking at these facilities is free. The Kress Corner project, a $13 million dollar renovation at the corner of Evans and Dargan Street, has been completed. The project features the new Town Hall Restaurant which includes a three-level rooftop bar known as The Dispensary. Apartments, professional offices, downtown’s first brewery – LocalMotive Brewery and brewpub will also be located in Kress Corner.

Carolina Bank has started renovation of 185 West Evans and will move their corporate headquarters from Darlington to downtown Florence. The Art Trail Gallery will move into a new permanent location at 142 North Dargan later this year after renovations are completed. The recently announced 103 room Hyatt Place Hotel will begin construction in June at the corner of East Evans and South Dargan Streets. The hotel should be open by mid 2018. In addition to the economic development activity, downtown has transformed into the place to be for social events. Thousands attend the numerous street festivals and other downtown

VIEWPOINT

Leapfrog progress for S.C.? Focus on innovation/digital By Phil Noble For hundreds of years, we in Western society have thought about things with a lineal and increment mind set. Progress – in society, commerce, science, engineering, etc., – was believed to be something that happens sequentially, usually slowly, with one step leading to another. This mindset is embedded in how we think about things and express ourselves “steady as she goes… one step at a time… the tortoise wins the race, etc.” Yes, there have always been breakthroughs that brought big change but they were rare and it usually took years for the effect of the breakthrough to have a widespread impact throughout the general population. But digital innovation has now changed everything. A few examples: Adoption: When electricity was first harnessed in 1873, it took 46 years for it to reach 25% of the U.S. population. The first television was invented in 1926 and it took 26 years to reach this 25% mark. The first mobile phones hit the market in 1983 and only 13 years later 25% of us had one. Invented in 1991, it took the internet only 8 years to reach 25% of the U.S. population. Nature of Business: Consider this – the largest transportation company in the world, Uber, has no cars or trucks. The largest accommodations company in the world, Airbnb, owns no hotels or motels. The largest photography company, Instagram, sells no cameras or related products. The largest US retailer, Amazon, has no stores. The largest media content company in the world, Facebook, produces no content. Companies Growth: Uber began in 2009 and in five years their valuation of $66 billion was greater than General Motors, Ford or Honda. Airbnb began in 2008 and has a $31 billion valuation, greater than Hyatt or Inter-Continental Hotels. Instagram started in 2010 has a $37 billion valuation and Kodak is now bankrupt. Facebook began in 2004 and its current valuation is $430 billion. And the ‘old digital company’ Amazon started in 1994 and is now worth $959 billion and Walmart’s valuation is $78 billion. OK, you say, but what do all these “gee whiz” numbers have to do with us in South Carolina? The answer is a lot. Because just as a society can make leapfrog jumps in its adoption of technology and digital companies can make leapfrog jumps in terms of size and value – so too can a country (or state) make leapfrog jumps by focusing on digital technology. One example: Estonia. When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the counties of Eastern Europe were freed, this tiny country of 1.3 million people in northeast Europe (just south of Finland and west of Russia) was a dull, gray country with its backwater economy in shambles and a very bleak future. But Estonia was different from its other Eastern European neighbors – they had innovative, committed leadership that convinced the people of the country to focus relentlessly on digital technology. First the leadership. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Toomas Ilves was a young man living in Munich working as the Estonian language news reader for Radio Free Europe. Though he had grown up in New Jersey (that’s a whole other story) he was committed to Estonia and when the Wall came down, he moved to the country and quickly jumped into Estonia politics. In no time, he was Estonian’s ambassador to the U.S., the European Union, Foreign Minister and from 2006 to 2016 he was president. (Full Disclosure: I first met Ilves in the late 1990’s when he was leader of a struggling little political party and I was running a struggling little internet company in the civic and political sector. We have worked together on several projects over the years and I am huge fan and I don’t pretend to be objective about either him or the wonderful things that his county has achieved.) Second the policy. Ilves convinced a small group of young politicians from across the political spectrum to focus everything they did on promoting the internet and new technology in every part of their economy and society. They bet the farm – and it paid off. The whole country is totally wired with super high-speed access; you can even connect in the middle of the forest. Cell phone penetration is 120% and the monthly cost of unlimited data access for an iPad is about $10. Schools, teachers and parents are seamlessly and constantly linked online so that the teaching of children is a true partnership, with each child’s progress measured and fostered in real time among all those involved. Virtually every government service you can imagine is ‘eenabled’ to empower citizens to become active participants, not just passive recipients. Governments at all levels provide services faster, more efficiently and at less cost – all delivered 24/7. Over 95% of people file their taxes online and the average time to complete the whole process is about 5 minutes. In the last national election, over 25% voted online.

Why do liberals deflect Ben Carson’s wisdom to score cheap political points? By Armstrong Williams It really is a shame. During my Town Hall interview conducted on my Sirius XM 126 Radio in which HUD Secretary Ben Carson began to explain some of the principles and market dynamics affecting policy initiatives at HUD, Carson noted that at its core, poverty is the result of a ‘poverty mindset’ that is often reinforced by family and social conditions. The media immediately selected that quote and ran with it. The implication in the mainstream media was that ‘cruel, tonedeaf Carson blames poor people for their poverty.’ But the media totally ignored the other things Dr. Carson said about the subject of housing, and the general formula for avoiding poverty. So, in the interest of full truth, it is only fair that we reset the balance here. Dr. Carson first noted that there are studies that show that there are three major self-initiated behaviors that can ensure that the vast majority of people do not wind up in poverty. First, finish high school; second, get married; and third, delay child-

birth until after marriage. These three factors alone would filter out almost 95% of all of the poor people in this country. Carson’s remarks were thus focused on what the average person can do to avoid or alleviate poverty. But this isn’t brain surgery we’re talking about here. Dr. Carson is not some elitist rich guy born with a spoon in his mouth who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. His story is well-documented. He was born to a mother who did not finish high school and was eventually forced to leave a bigamist marriage with two children she had to raise on her own. She was forced into poverty. But as everyone who has studied his life knows, Carson chose a different path. He attended college and graduated, then went on to medical school. He married his college sweetheart Candy, to whom he remains married to this day. And they both delayed child birth until after they had completed their education and gotten married. Carson went on to say what he felt the value of committing marriage and family plays in one’s life. It gets you

CONTINUED FROM LEFT register a new business online in less than 20 minutes. In the business sector, their crown jewel, so far, is Skype. Started in 2003 by a handful of smart Swedish and Estonian kids, nine years later it sold to eBay for $2.6 billion and in 2011 was bought by Microsoft for $8.5 billion. In 2007, Russia launch a cyber-attack on Estonia (Estonian and Russians have hated each other for hundreds of years) and they were beaten back so completely that NATO turned over huge portions of its cyber security to Estonia. And on and on it goes through out virtually every sector of a rapidly growing Estonian economy and society. Today their economic growth rate is among the highest in the European Union, there unemployment rate among the lowest and their personal income growth is soaring. So why should South Carolina care? The parallels are obvious. We are both relatively small and historically we have been comparatively poor and have both suffered from political leadership that has failed our people. But, in the last 20 years, while Estonia has made leapfrog jumps, South Carolina has made only incremental progress. The keys to success in the future are obvious – a laser like focus on technology beginning with schools, an unfaltering belief that our future can be better than our past and new leadership that inspires its citizens to dream big and take chances. We in South Carolina have it within us to do this too. We really can. The question is will we?

out of a situation in which you are merely focused on yourself and your own wants and needs, and increases your responsibility muscle. By being committed to another person (or persons), you begin to seek opportunities and develop skills that enable you to expand your earning potential. You invest in a home in which you can raise a family. Your sense of economics grows as you share your income and decide on priorities in line with raising a family. And over time, this process of growing to manage additional responsibilities increases your wealth. Let’s take the contrapositive position. If you do not complete at least a high school level of education, your job prospects in this country are dismal at best. Not only are you unqualified for most of today’s middle class jobs – police officer, EMS, teacher, etc. – but you may not even have the intellectual foundation to supplement your education without first learning the basics of reading, writing and math taught at the high school level. Needless to say, this puts one at a distinct disadvantage in the job market. If one then adds an out of wedlock child to these poor economic prospects, you are starting out in a deep hole. You may not initially want to depend on the government for housing, food and clothing – but in the absence of marketable skills, that’s often what ends up happening. This in turn helps foster a cycle of poverty. Your children grow up without role models of success. Most of the people around them and with whom they associate are also in the same conditions – growing up in broken homes, without intact families, supported by government assistance. They began to believe this is the norm. Why can’t they do it too? So, they end up dropping out of school, having kids out of wedlock, and failing to advance to a middle-class lifestyle. This is what’s known as a ‘poverty mindset.’ What’s the upside of all this? It’s that it is totally within your control to change this behavior. You don’t have to wait on a government program or a lottery ticket to do this. You can start now, right where you are. You can end the cycle of poverty in your community by changing your mindset, and that will

lead to behaviors that support wealth and prosperity. But this is so simple and obvious that it’s almost not even worth reporting. How many of the prognosticators have failed to heed this basic formula in their own lives? How many of the lofty writers for mainstream rags had to fight their own way out of poverty and broken homes to end up at the heights of their profession? Probably very few. So, when they take Carson out of context just to make cheap political theater, chances are they are being a little less than candid about their own middle class values. But peddling the myth that government programs can solve the entrenched problems of poverty in this country – despite all the evidence to the contrary – well, apparently thats an easier sell.

March 14, 1952 - May 30, 2016 Our beloved Ma shared this with us on December 25, 2005... “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you... Because I live, you also will live.” John 14:18-19 NIV One of my most frightening memories as a child happened one evening after my mother had kissed me good night and turned out the light. There in my warm soft bed it occurred to me that someday my dear mother and father would be gone. What would I do when the day came that they were no longer with me? How would I ever be able to live without their gentle touch, their loving guidance, and their knowing smile? Even now as an adult, I remember those feelings of fear and abandonment at the tought of being alone. Nothing is worse than feeling abandoned and alone. It is the perfect breeding ground for fear and anxiety, bitterness, and hate. After His resurrection, Jesus knew that He was going to the Father and He knew that the disciples would face feelings of abandonment and loneliness at His leaving. Jesus understood then, and He understands today, what it means to feel rejected and alone. That is why Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be with us and to live with us. We can celebrate today because Jesus keeps His promise!!! Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful gift of your son, Jesus, who came to Earth so long ago. We Celebrate His Birth. Those words you shared with us have become even more meaningful to us since you closed your eyes to no longer be with us physically on Earth on Monday, May 30, 2016. Thank you God for the precious memories, and yes, Ma, we know, “Jesus Loves Me.” Children: Alexis D. and LaDonna Pipkins, Sr., Miriam Cotton Candy Singley and Tavaris Singley, Sr. Grandchildren: Alexis “Papa” Pipkins, Jr., Brooke Pipkins, Thomas Pipkins, A’Mari Pipkins, Tavaris Singley, Jr., and Tierra Singley Siblings: Queenie T.

NSDAR MEETING – Mary Frances Turner, Vice Regent, left, Speaker John Jacobs, and Anne Jenkins, Regent.

DAR chapter learns about Lumbee Indians The Samuel Bacot Chapter, NSDAR met on Wednesday, May 10, at the Florence Country Club. After a Dutch lunch, the members were treated to a program by John Jacobs. Jacobs is a full-blooded Lumbee Indian and entertained and enlightened his audience with stories of growing up in both Indian and non-Indian communities. He talked about some of the problems of the Indian community, such as joblessness, lack of quality education, and alcoholism. He told about the Lumbee Tribe’s quest to be recognized by the Federal Government that has turned them down many times, because they are not able to trace the beginnings of the

tribe. Recognition would mean more opportunities for the Lumbee Tribe, but he is not encouraged it will happen in the near future. This meeting was the last meeting until September 2017. Anyone who is interested in joining the DAR

Chapter and is able to trace their ancestry to a Revolutionary War participant is encouraged to contact any officer with the Samuel Bacot Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. New members are always welcomed.
