The annual event is held each year on the original Jamestown settlement, one of the first for freed slaves, that was founded in 1870. Reenactors and artists, such as the fiddle player seen below, offered event-goers an opportunity to see what life was like during that period in American history.

Librarian to media specialist Stereotypical role has expanded in recent decades The job of a librarian, oftentimes now called a media specialist in the school setting, has changed a lot over the years. Last week, several Florence 1 Schools libraries/media centers were on display during a visit by a University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science cohort. During the visit, media specialists and other members of the district staff talked about the changing face of the library and the role

that it and its caretaker play in education today. Dr. Karen Gavigan, a professor in the School of Library and Information Science, led the group. “We have a cohort here with eight librarians who are in our program at the University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science,” Gavigan said.

“We designed this day for them to showcase the libraries in this area.” While touring the media center at South Florence High School Doug Brown, Coordinator of Data Integration and IT Support for Florence 1 Schools, spoke about the partnership between media specialists and the district IT department. “The media specialists are really an extension of the technology department; in most of the schools they are the first line of contact for teachers when they have technical issues,” Brown said. “I have seen the transition from librarians being someone who catalogues books to them being someone who tracks information across various channels. This is a constantly shifting, non-stable platform on the edge of the market and I really respect the media specialists for everything that they have to keep up with.” South Florence media specialists Heather Gaston and Dana Turner showed off the inprocess transformation of their

We lost about 11,000 books but they were all non-fic-

tion and they were dated. What we ended up doing was curating small collections. We kept our fiction, we kept our biography section and our graphic novels. Then we pulled a STEM collection and an arts section, special collections for teachers.” Turner said that as a one-toone school, each student has their own Chromebook, the physical space for books in the

library is not needed as much as it used to be. “We have been one-to-one for three years so we have seen our library environment change completely,” Turner said. “A lot of our resources are now digital content and they go wherever in the building the students are.” Gaston and Turner said that a large portion of their day now revolves around the Chromebooks, from answering questions to submitting help desk tickets to the IT department and ordering a short-term replacement while one is being repaired. Marianne Gaskins and Deborah Daniels, media specialists at Royall Elementary and Lucy T. Davis Elementary respectively, shared with the group how they structure the time students use the library, from storytime with younger children to teaching older children how to use resources to conduct research. During the Royall Elementary School stop, Chief Personnel Officer Nathanial Marshall talked about the important role media specialists play for students. “I remember having librarians back in the day who would do storytime and put on crazy hats or play the banjo or put on the silly costume,” Marshall said. “That got me engaged in the story that they were reading. I am not a reader, I never have been, but I loved going to the library when I was a kid because of that. I think it is still important, as we are changing into having a lot of technology and supporting technology in our classrooms, that we are also building the foundations of reading and still making reading fun for our students.”

Exercise caution when exercising in the heat It’s common knowledge that there are many health benefits to staying active and keeping a regular exercise routine. The intense summer heat and humidity can make exercising outdoors and sports training a challenge. Whatever outdoor activity you choose, it is always a good idea to practice hot weather safety tips. The most important tip is proper hydration. Be sure to drink nine to eleven cups of water a day, more if your activity is in the middle of the day. During the

activity, replace water by drinking every fifteen minutes. After, replenish valuable nutrients with a cool sports drink. Dress cooler for the outdoors by wearing lightweight clothing, in light colors to reflect the sun. Try to avoid the hottest part of the day by planning your activity before 8 a.m. or after 7 p.m. Hot weather demands more energy during activities so slow down, pace yourself and drink plenty of water. For additional information on hydration and exercise, visit McLeodhealth.org.

Impact of The Continuum will be felt for years to come As the ribbon is cut and the doors swing open on the new $25 million, 46,000-square-foot Continuum in downtown Lake City on Tuesday, Aug. 6, it will be hard to fully understand and appreciate the profound impact the state-of-the-art facility will have on the people and communities of the Pee Dee Region. The effects will be no doubt be felt right away, but the appreciation for The Continuum and what it offers will grow as each year passes. The Continuum, a dynamic educational initiative created through a partnership between the Darla Moore Foundation, Francis Marion University and FlorenceDarlington Technical College, will offer area students pathways to meaningful careers. At the same time it will offer employers statewide a much-needed stream of skilled employees. When the initiative was first announced in March, philanthropist and entrepreneur Darla Moore said The Continuum would serve as a “a vision for what the future of education could, and probably should, look like.” She went on to say that there is no more pressing issue facing our state than creating an educational system that more effectively meets the needs of the businesses and industries of this state. We could not agree more. We also think The Continuum will go a long way in meeting those needs. During a recent presentation with the West Florence Rotary Club, Continuum Executive Director Jeanette Altman used the phrase “workforce development” on numerous occasions. While giving students of all ages a means to earn a valuable trade or profession, the intended end result is a good-paying job for the individual and a workforce with greater skills and training for our communities and our state. The Continuum will offer courses in a variety of disciplines across many academic tracks. Dual enrollment courses, and courses for traditional students, will include English, math, history, biology, chemistry, art, music, business, computer science, education, preengineering and pre-nursing. Initially, the workforce development courses will provide training in HVAC, welding, health sciences, mechatronics and advanced manufacturing technology. Additional courses will be added as The Continuum grows and develops. At least a half dozen public school districts, and several private schools, have indicated they will send students to The Continuum. Some dual enrollment, and other courses, already offered by FMU and FDTC, will move to The Continuum facility in Lake City. Last week, FDTC held its first-ever fall orientation at The Continuum. It will also house a business incubator for up to five nascent businesses. The incubator will be operated through Francis Marion University’s Kelly Center for Enterprise and Innovation. The center operates the business development center for the City of Florence in downtown Florence. With space to hold community events, organizers also expect The Continuum to become an important civic center for the citizens of Lake City and beyond. We can certainly see many parallels between The Continuum and the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology. The far-reaching effect SiMT has had on the workforce of Pee Dee region and the state in its 12 short years of existence is immeasurable. It’s not hard to envision The Continuum following a similar path and making an equally indelible impact on our economy. We applaud all of the people and parties involved in making The Continuum a reality. Your efforts will bear fruit in many forms for many years to come. We also applaud and offer our support to those who will carry The Continuum into the future.

Habitat, hard work lead to a new home Like any mother, India McLellan wants her children to have a good life and a good home. She wants them to know that if you work hard and don’t give up, good things can happen. A good thing, a very good thing, will happen for the 34year-old mother of five on Wednesday. She will be presented two keys. The first will be a large cardboard replica handed to her during a dedication ceremony. The other will be an actual key - one that will unlock the door to a new home and a new future for India and her family. After working and waiting for nearly a year, India will become the latest Greater Florence Habitat for Humanity homeowner. She and her children, ranging in age from 14 years to five months, will soon be moving into the newly completed 1,693square-foot, two-story home located on the corner of Railroad Avenue and Pine Street. The house will come complete with all appliances – refrigerator, stove, washer/dryer, etc. “It’s exciting,” said India. “ I’m not sure if I ever thought this day would come. It will literally be like a breath of fresh air for me and my family.” It was a little less that a year ago when the apartment India and her children were staying in was flooded by the rainwater of hurricanes Florence and Michael. India said the flooding left mold and mildew, which made it very hard to breath at times. She knew it was not

healthy, but with nowhere to go they stuck it out for as long as they could. India had already been approved and accepted into the Habitat for Humanity homeowner’s program. It requires prospective homeowners to build up sweat equity hours working at the home site or in the Habitat Restore. This, combined with her full-time job as a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, kept India very busy. It also made her dependant on her sister and mother to help care for her growing brood. Remember, she was pregnant with her youngest, who was born in early June. “It was definitely kind of stressful,” India admits, “but you do what you have to do. God gave me the strength and the energy I needed to get through.” India’s extraordinary efforts in juggling family life, a full-time job, and Habitat commitments did not go unnoticed. “India is a hardworking individual,” said Debbie Edward, executive director of the Greater Florence Habitat for Humanity. “She began working on her home from the very start of con-

struction. She is handy with a shovel, paintbrush, hammer, nails and drilling the screws into wood boards to form the foundation of her home.” Edwards added that along the way India became quite adept at using the tools of the construction trade. “India is very proud of the new skills she was taught by our project manager, Rob Lewis with Lewis Construction,” said Edwards. “We joke that India could probably begin her own construction company.” In June, shortly after baby Kylie was born, India and her growing brood – Ionna, Maliki, Karen, Kobe and newborn Kylie – moved in with her sister. The small apartment is more than a little cramped, but not for long thanks to Habitat and a mother’s determined efforts. “I am beyond grateful for my mom and sister and everything they’ve done for me and my kids,” she said. “I could not have done this without them.” As India will tell you, the house is not a free handout to those who qualify. You have to work – a minimum of 300 sweat equity hours. This ensures that the owner has a part in the building of their new home. To be able to say, “I helped build this place,” goes a long way in helping build something else - selfesteem. Once construction is completed, there will be an interestfree mortgage that needs to be paid on time each month. Of

course, there are also the costs of upkeep that go along with owning a place of your own. Once the mortgage is paid, the home is theirs. The folks at Habitat are quick to point out that homeownership is not a short-term fix. It can benefit generations to come. In India’s case, the new home on the corner of Railroad and Pine may serve as collateral on a college loan for Ionna, Maliki, Karen or Kobe. Who knows, one day it may even belong to little Kylie. In the mean time, Habitat will continue to build homes and make a difference in the lives of people like India McLellan.

Time to focus on fixing election process A few years ago, I was at a polling place here in Indiana where a long line of people stood waiting to vote. A woman recognized me and called me over. “Why is it,” she asked, “that you politicians make it so hard and inconvenient to vote?” I thought of this the other day when I read the news reports about presidents Trump and Putin meeting and jestingly accusing one another of election meddling. The background, of course, is the pressing issue of Russian interference in US elections. American voters take elections seriously enough to stand in line – for hours, sometimes – to cast a ballot. And here were the two presidents making light of attempts to subvert the voices of ordinary people. I’d expect nothing less from Putin, but from an American president? The sad truth is, Russian meddling isn’t our only election problem. We’ve got an archaic registration process, restrictive voting practices, voting systems bedeviled by outdated technology, inadequate budgets for the voting infrastructure, and an entire nation’s worth of overloaded local elections staff. There are robust efforts afoot, by many people and groups, to suppress -- not encourage – votes; much effort in this country goes into keeping some groups of people from having a say in the conduct of their government. It’s also distressingly common to find officials who are uninterested in promoting a fair and convenient vote, but instead are looking for ways to manipu-

late the system so that their preferences emerge from the voting. Too few of them believe in Abraham Lincoln’s formulation at Gettysburg: “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” They define “people” so as to exclude voters they don’t like. So let’s remember: the ballot is the foundation of our democracy. It’s our best way to gauge the public’s will. If we fail to get the ballot box right, then our democracy fails. Elections are not the sum total of “democracy.” An independent judiciary, an informed public, institutions such as schools, labor unions, business groups, and the news media… all are necessary as well. Democracy is a hugely complex phenomenon. But at its heart is one thing: the vote. We’ve come a long way on this front. The Founders thought that rule by the people was tantamount to anarchy. So they restricted the vote early on to white males who owned property. In a sense, our history as a nation has been written in terms of extending the franchise to more and more people. But that’s not the only requirement. Over time, I’ve come to look at a good election not so much in terms of who wins or loses – liberal or conser-

vative, Republican or Democrat – but in terms of the process, and whether it was fair and democratic. Sure, I’m disappointed sometimes in the results of voters’ decisions at the ballot box. But I’m always reminded that our system is designed with the capacity to correct errors. In a lot of ways, we’ll be strongest as a country not by means of a strong military or a strong economy, but when our battle cry is, “Let the people vote!” If you look across the state and local landscape, you’ll find efforts to make voting more accessible and more verifiable that offer hope in the midst of voter suppression and election meddling. But these need to be a national aspiration that’s pursued at every level: to protect voting infrastructure, provide a paper trail for every vote, ensure adequate resources for the conduct of elections, and vow to ensure that state and local elections systems are run fairly, on behalf of everyone who’s entitled to vote. Our governments have to work constantly at what that woman in line wanted to see: making voting accessible and convenient. Yes, we need to protect the integrity of the vote. But we also need to make it a positive civic experience, not a burden. Elections have consequences. The winners get political power that enables them to change the course of history. Our chief way to have a say in this is to vote in every election, every time, for every office. Let’s make sure we can, and

that when we do, our vote matters.

Duke Energy Foundation workforce grants Initiatives

include efforts to grow pipeline of women, veteran and minority engineers The Duke Energy Foundation has awarded more than $150,000 in grants to four South Carolina organizations to fund strategic initiatives that will help enhance and diversify the energy industry’s workforce of tomorrow. “We are making strategic investments in South Carolina to help build a talented workforce that drives economic prosperity for all,” said Kodwo Ghartey-Tagoe, South Carolina state president for Duke Energy. “We have a long history of targeting investments to have the greatest impact for our communities. These grants continue that tradition and will help strengthen the workforce pipeline needed to fuel the Palmetto State’s economic engine now and in the years to come.” The grants were awarded to the following organizations: • Clover School District: Creates a first-of-itskind program in the state – a partnership with York Technical College, Clover School District and York District 1 to implement a utility lineworker certification program for high school students. • S.C. Independent Colleges and Universities: Provides nine $5,000 scholarships to junior or senior engineering students at qualifying independent colleges and universities in Duke Energy’s service areas. • Tri-County Technical College: Supports a marketing program aimed at increasing the number of women, minorities and veterans pursuing engineering and mechatronics degrees. • Florence-Darlington Technical College: Supports an effort to recruit and retain women and minorities in the field of engineering technology through a mentorship program that pairs students with leaders in the engineering field.

Fairy tale performance Talented young people brought a fairy tale to life last week during the Florence Little Theatre’s production of Disney’s Frozen Jr. The theater was near full capacity for each of its six shows. Directed by Ryan Hilbourn and Lisa Sims, a cast of dozens sang and danced to memorable songs from both the movie and the Broadway show, such as ‘Do you Want to Build a Snowman,’ ‘Love is an Open Door,’ and ‘Let It Go.’ Above, young princesses Anna (Ellery Price), and Elsa (Emi Weaver) share a conversation with their parents, King Agnarr (Hamilton Sprawls) and Queen Iduna (Abigail Greenwood). Top right and middle right, Anna (Maura Hilbourn) speaks with Olaf the snowman (Caleb Howell) and dances with a maid. At right, dancers are silhouetted by darkness. More photos from the production can be found in The News Journal Facebook page.

The Florence-Darlington Technical College program will provide students with networking opportunities with current leaders, workshops on how to find the right mentors and what to expect in the first five years in the engineering workforce. “FDTC is happy to have Duke Energy’s support of our pilot Women and Minorities in Engineering Technology Leadership Program,” said FDTC Interim President Edward Bethea. “We’re not only educating the future workforce, but also the leaders for that workforce. This program will make the transition into leadership roles within the engineering field much smoother for these bright, accomplished students.”

FDTC allied health students post impressive exam scores Florence-Darlington Technical College Dental, Nursing and Medical Laboratory Technology graduates continue to set the bar high for health care in the Pee Dee region by scoring impressive numbers on state board testing or professional licensure examinations. FDTC’s Dental Hygiene and Expanded Duty Dental Assisting programs recently scored 100 percent on the national board. The Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association accredits both

of these programs at FDTC. Every quarter, the State Board of Nursing sends out a pass rate to all nursing programs. FDTC’s Practical Nursing (PN) recent graduates scored 100 percent on the National Council Licensure Examination. The Associates Degree in Nursing program’s graduating class of May had a 100 percent pass rate for the NCLEX The MLT program provides a comprehensive technical education that prepares graduates to work in the medical, clinical and

research laboratory industry. With only a few students remaining to complete the American Society for Clinical Pathology - Board of Certification examination, the MLT program is also boasting a 100 percent pass rate. Graduates are officially certified upon completion of the ASCP-BOC. For more information on the Allied Health programs at FDTC, visit www.fdtc.edu or contact AVP of Health Sciences Dan Averette at Dan.Averette@fdtc.edu or by calling 843-661-8161.

Florence Family YMCA, Subway hold Swim Day The Florence Family YMCA and All 4 Autism partnered with local Subway restaurants for the inaugural Subway Swim Day July 27. Thirty-five kids and family members participated in the event, which emphasized water safety and basic swim skills. “Enjoying the water is something that every child should have the opportunity to participate in safely,” said Chuck Case, Board Chairman for local Subway restaurants in the Florence/Myrtle Beach market. “Subway developed

this program to support people in our community who may have a family member with autism. This is not only educational and live-saving, it’s creating a day of fun for these kids.” Up to 90 percent of wandering-related deaths involving children with autism are due to drownings, according to the National Autism Association (NAA). Local owners of Subway restaurants and the community partners began hosting the Subway Swim Day event for the first time this year to help prevent these drownings.

ments for admission and scholarships. He will continue planning visits from college admissions officers to TrinityByrnes, and scheduling group tours of college campuses throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. “With so many colleges and universities to choose from,” he said, “it’s hard for students to know what’s out there, so it’s important not only to hear about programs from their own admissions officers, but to tour college campuses to get a feel for where they might like to continue their studies.” Last year, Trinity-Byrnes hosted representatives from Harvard, Wake Forest, Davidson, Tulane, Washington University in St. Louis, Duke, the University of South Carolina, Presbyterian College, Wofford College, Auburn University, and Rhodes College, amongst others. In addition to his role as Director of College Placement, Nunn will continue to teach AP European History and World History during the regular academic year. “I’m very thankful to Mr. Hoffman for the opportunity to step into this new role,” remarks Nunn. “It’s going to be a challenge, to say the least, but exciting as well. I’m looking forward to getting started.”
