FLT ready for new season of entertainment BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. The Florence Little Theatre starts its 94th season with the opening of “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” on Sept. 8. “Not only is this our 94th season, it is the 10th season in our current theatre on S. Dargan St.,” noted FLT President Robin Thompson. “We’re very excited about the 2017-2018 season.” “‘Beauty and the Beast’ was one of the last shows we did at the old theatre on South Cashua. When it became available in 2006 we were one of the first theaters to get rights to do it.” “We were thrilled to produce it in 2006, but since moving we have anticipated offering it here where we have a much larger stage and more height providing the opportunity for a more dramatic set. Also, our production coincides with the Disney live-action movie that opened earlier this year,” Thompson noted. He added that FLT Workshop presented “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.” a while back which was a youth production and not the full show. The 2017-2018 season offers a variety of five productions. The season will close with “Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” which was also presented at the old theatre, as well as “Driving Miss Daisy.” “We are reviving three of our

FLT PRESIDENT ROBIN THOMPSON ON THE SET OF “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” most successful shows and bringing in two others for the first time,” Thompson commented. “The Game’s Afoot,” a classic comedy will follow “Beauty.” This is a play by comedy master Ken Ludwig whose plays have been well received at FLT, he said. Another comedy, “You Can’t Take It With You.” completes the new season lineup.

“We have three veteran directors, Julia Saverance, Shannon Dunn and Shaw Thompson, and we are introducing two new directors, Shauna Lair and Brittney Miles. “We are carrying on the FLT tradition as we continue to grow,” said Thompson. He added that “Beauty” has a very talented cast featuring both new and veteran

performers. Season memberships are available through the run of “Beauty,” Thompson said, and partial memberships will be offered after. Season ticket prices are adult, $95; seniors (62 plus) $90; and young adults (under 18) $65. Single

Airport gets new checkpoint screening scanner The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) introduced the latest checkpoint screening technology equipment at Florence Regional Airport (FLO). With the addition of the new Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) machine at FLO, the airport is able to further strengthen security for passengers flying out of Flo-

rence and the surrounding area. The scanner uses automated target recognition software that eliminates passenger-specific images and instead auto-detects potential threats by indicating their location on a generic outline of a person. It’s the same generic image for all passengers, regardless of their gender, height or weight and is

designed to enhance passenger privacy. Advanced imaging technology shows a generic “cookie cutter” image of a passenger. The technology is state-of-theart equipment with software that uses bright yellow boxes to indiSEE

FLT SEASON FROM PAGE 1A tickets are on sale as well. Call the box office, MondayFriday from 12-5 p.m. at (843) 662-3731 to purchase tickets or memberships. The 2017-18 season: • “Beauty And The Beast” opens on Sept. 8 and runs thru Sept. 17. Julia Saverance is director. The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. Favorite songs include “Be Our Guest” and the beloved title song “Beauty and the Beast.” This show is filled with spectacular costumes and sets. It is a must-see for the whole family. • Ken Ludwig’s “The Game’s Afoot” with Shannon Dunn, director, Nov. 1018. This hilarious play brings murder, mystery, mayhem and madcap adventure to the stage. Broadway star William

Gillette, famous the world over for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, has invited fellow cast members to his opulent home for a dinner party. But when one of the guests winds up dead, Gillette will have to summon every ounce of Sherlock he can to solve the mystery. • “Driving Miss Daisy” with Shauna Lair, director. It will be presented Jan.19-27, 2018 The time is 1948, the place is a small southern town in the USA. In this place and this era an unlikely friendship develops between a cantankerous elderly white woman and a proud, thoughtful black man who is employed as her driver. Over the years they find the common humanity in one another. • “You Can’t Take It With You,” with Brittany Miles, director, March 9-17, 2018 At first the Sycamores seem eccentric, but it is not long before we realize they are also joyous. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirby family.

If the machine indicates no threats, then a green screen appears that indicates the passenger is cleared to pass through the checkpoint. AIT technology uses millimeter wave technology that is designed to enhance security by safely screening passengers for metallic and non-metallic threats – including weapons, explosives and other objects concealed under layers of clothing. TSA has a brief 1½-minute video that shows how the equipment works. Imaging technology screening is safe for all travelers, and the technology meets all known national and international health and safety standards. In fact, the energy emitted by millimeter wave technology is 1,000 times less than the international limits and guidelines.

The public is invited to the 13th Annual Darlington Car Hauler Parade and Festival on Thursday, Aug. 31.

At 7 p.m., the parade of NASCAR haulers will leave the Florence Civic Center and make the 12-mile drive to Darlington RaceFest on the Darlington Square, where there will be added entertainment, food, a car show and a fireworks display. The transporters will continue through Darlington until they reach the track Too Tough to Tame to begin preparation for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 race.

GOD’S WORD The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8

VIEWPOINT

Charlottesville: What you can do now By Phil Noble Most everyone was outraged by what happened in Charlottesville. If you are in that tiny sliver of humanity that was not outraged, well… It is only human to react by asking, “What can I do?” The Southern Poverty Law Center has been successfully fighting the KKK, neo-Nazi and white supremacy organizations since 1971. If you don’t know about them and their courageous founder, Morris Dees, you should. (www.SPLCenter.org). Go to their site and learn about hate groups in the county and in South Carolina, and what you can do. Make a donation, too. Full disclosure: Morris has been a personal hero of mine and inspiration for over 40 years. There is no human being alive in America today who has risked their life more directly and longer in the fight “to ensure that the promise of the civil rights movement becomes a reality for all.” We first met and worked together on Gary Hart’s 1984 presidential campaign and later he helped get my father’s book published, “Beyond the Burning Bus”, about his experience in civil rights in Alabama in the 1960s. Right after Charlottesville, the SPLC published “10 Ways to Fight Hate: A Community Response Guide” and bought full page ads in many major newspapers around the country to get people involved. Below is a summary of the 10 Ways. On their website, there is much more detailed information about each of the 10 Ways and some specific things you and your community can do. ACT – Do something. In the face of hatred, apathy will be interpreted as acceptance by the perpetrators, the public, and — worse — the victims. Community members must take action; if we don’t, hate persists. JOIN FORCES – Reach out to allies from churches, schools, clubs, and other civic groups. Create a diverse coalition. Include children, police, and the media. Gather ideas from everyone, and get everyone involved. SUPPORT THE VICTIMS – Hate crime victims are especially vulnerable. If you’re a victim, report every incident — in detail — and ask for help. If you learn about a hate crime victim in your community, show support. Let victims know you care. Surround them with comfort and protection. SPEAK UP – Hate must be exposed and denounced. Help news organizations achieve balance and depth. Do not debate hate group members in conflict-driven forums. Instead, speak up in ways that draw attention away from hate, toward unity. EDUCATE YOURSELF – An informed campaign improves its effectiveness. Determine if a hate group is involved, and research its symbols and agenda. Understand the difference between a hate crime and a bias incident. CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE – Do not attend a hate rally. Find another outlet for anger and frustration and for people’s desire to do something. Hold a unity rally or parade to draw media attention away from hate. PRESSURE LEADERS – Elected officials and other community leaders can be important allies. But some must overcome reluctance — and others, their own biases — before they’re able to take a stand. STAY ENGAGED – Promote acceptance and address bias before another hate crime can occur. Expand your comfort zone by reaching out to people outside your own groups. TEACH ACCEPTANCE – Bias is learned early, often at home. Schools can offer lessons of tolerance and acceptance. Host a diversity and inclusion day on campus. Reach out to young people who may be susceptible to hate group propaganda and prejudice. DIG DEEPER Look inside yourself for biases and stereotypes. Commit to disrupting hate and intolerance at home, at school, in the workplace and in faith communities. There is nothing here that we all can’t do. And, we all should. It doesn’t have to be this way. Nuc-Gate Update – Two weeks ago, this column was South Carolina’s Nuclear Meltdown: What Next, Who Pays? In the column, I called on members of the legislature to: 1) donate all contributions from SCANA, Santee Cooper and the electric co-op to a charity, and 2) disclose all retainers, consulting fees or any other money they or their immediate family received from these companies. I’m happy to report some progress – a little. Democratic Rep. Russel Ott, announced that he was going to return his campaign contributions from SCANA and Republican Rep. Bill Hixon said he returned all of his donations from both SCANA and SC Electric Co-op. Both men are on the new House committee appointed to investigate the nuclear scandal. Other members of the committee (and the whole legislature) should follow their lead. Thank you, gentlemen. This is a great first step. Unfortunately, no other legislators have come forward to say they would return or donate the campaign contributions. Further, we know of no legislator who has disclosed any other payments they have received from the utilities. It doesn’t have to be this way. We deserve better.

Why should Congress be exempted from ObamaCare and not you? By Harold Pease, Ph. D “If ObamaCare is hurting people, and it is, why shouldn’t it hurt the insurance companies and why should Congress not be paying what the public pays?” tweeted the President. Donald Trump wants to remove privileged taxpayer subsidies to members of Congress, their staffs, and insurance companies, at least until they pass something on healthcare. On Nov. 8, 2013, each member of Congress, with little media coverage, chose whether they and their staffs accepted the Obama exemption exempting them from having to live under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as did their constituents. They could go elsewhere, costing more, and be subsidized by the taxpayer. And the exemption was made easy to accept. If lawmakers didn’t act, staffers were exempted by default – automatically. Did your two U.S. Senators and member of the House of Representatives choose to exempt themselves from ObamaCare while still pushing it on you? Most Americans were not supportive of ObamaCare when signed into law March 23, 2010. Today, seven years later, most would vote against it as well, especially in light of its history of rate increases and higher deductibles, although President Barack Obama promised otherwise. And most have not been able to keep their doctors or providers. Big business and unions opted out of it, when possible, as fast as they could. In what appeared aimed to mute congressional opposition to the forced healthcare law, Obama allowed Congress to opt out, leaving only the American people enslaved by the legislation they created. Congress did not repeal ObamaCare in part because they would loose their ability to choose other plans because of the

subsidies. Trump wants them to lose their privileged status. At first some members of Congress convincingly denied that they had received an exemption but Senator David Vitter published the Obamacare language next to the Obama exemption. The first read in part: “If the employee purchases a qualified health plan through the Exchange the employee will lose the employer contribution (if any) to any health benefits plan offered by the employer and that all or a portion of such contribution may be excludable from income for Federal income tax purposes” (See Section 1512, number 3). The second, the Obama Congressional exemption, coming through the Office of Personnel Management, page 6, read in part: “The revisions adopted here have no impact on the availability to Member of Congress and Congressional Staff of the contribution established in 5 USC 8906” (Alex Pappas, “Republican accuses fellow lawmakers of ‘lying’ about Obamacare exemption,” 9/19/2013). Since the federal government was their employer they would not lose the subsidy as would others by not accepting ObamacCare. Obama, who had no constitutional authority to make law, unilaterally changed the law in 2013 and voided, otherwise mandatory, congressional participation. This presumably to grease the skids for members of Congress accepting what in any other setting would be called a bribe. They defined their employees as “official” or “not official,” to determine whether or not staff members had to enter the exchanges. Because the exception was not part of the

original law and came about thereafter by executive change, Trump can nullify by the same power. The hypocrisy of forcing the people to live under what they themselves will not is beyond description and at the height of political corruption. If the president is going to lead us into socialized medicine then he must accept it for himself. If the Supreme Court is going to rule it constitutional, they too must live under it. This should be the litmus test for the reelection of every U.S. Senator and member of the House of Representatives for the next several years to flush out of office those who exempt themselves from the laws that they make for others. All members of Congress made this decision on Nov. 8, 2013. Did they choose to live above the law? If so, corruption has never been so clear and stark. Most House Republicans opted to submit themselves and their staffs to the exemption of the law because they despised the law and played virtually no role in its inception. But Senate Democrats, who all voted for it, appeared hypocritical when they too supported the exemption. We believe that no exemptions should be made for anyone who works in government. How will they govern correctly if they have immunized themselves from the pain they cause others? We support Senator Rand Paul’s Constitutional Amendment designed to require our government to live under the same laws that they make for us. They are not our masters but our servants. Insurance companies have been given huge subsidies, taken primarily from the

First Amendment 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.

middle class, to entice them to keep prices lower for those with lower incomes. If these are cut, as Trump threatens, ObamaCare may collapse even more quickly and Trump and Republicans may be blamed, so cut them gradually beginning now. But there is no sympathy for members of Congress and their staffs – cut them immediately and insurance subsidies 5 or 10% per month until ended. More insurance companies, thus more options and lower prices, will develop quickly as has always been the case under the free market, when truly free.

United Way Day of Caring seeks volunteers Last year, over 420 volunteers from 32 companies and organizations came together and completed 76 service projects for the United Way of Florence County’s Day of Caring. This year, the goal is to have even more volunteers complete even more projects to give back to the community and help celebrate the 25th Annual Day of Caring. To achieve this, more volunteers are needed who are willing to roll up their sleeves and spend a day completing a project for a local nonprofit agency. This year’s Day of Caring will be held on Friday, Sept. 15. Volunteers are invited to attend a kick-off breakfast that morning at First Presbyterian Church. After fueling up with good food, the volunteers will then head out to different agencies to complete their chosen projects. If you are interested in participating, you first need to create a volunteer team of individuals who are ready to

help. Once you have your team, register by contacting the United Way by phone at 843662-2407 or by email at rbaggett@uwflorence.org. After your team is registered, you can then go online to www.uwflorence.org to select your team’s Day of Caring project. The projects range from services such as painting an agency office, to doing yard work for a senior citizen, to hosting a cookout for an agency’s clients. On each project form, you will find a suggested number of volunteers and a list of supplies needed to complete the project. Volunteer teams are responsible for the cost of any supplies needed to complete their chosen project.

The Day of Caring also serves as the kick-off event for the United Way of Florence County’s 2017-2018 annual campaign. This year’s tagline is “Treasure Your Community with United Way.” Won’t you to treasure your community by participating in the 2017 Day of Caring?

Florence Judicial Center to open early 2018 Stevens & Wilkinson, a full-service architecture, engineering and interior design firm based in Atlanta and Columbia, announced the ongoing progress of the Florence County Judicial Center, which will serve as an anchor to the city’s broader redevelopment. Now under construction, the $32 million, 120,000square-foot building is being developed at North Irby Street, across from the existing County Administration Building. The three-story structure, designed by a team of architects, engineers, interior designers, and project planners at Stevens & Wilkinson’s Columbia office, will provide space for approximately 170 court employees and delineate the different functions of the Circuit

NEW JUDICIAL CENTER UNDER CONSTRUCTION Court, Family Court, Probate Court, Clerk of Court, and judicial support areas. Building security conceptualized by Stevens & Wilkinson will

play a major part in the layout of the spaces. “With our firm’s experience of courthouse planning, Stevens & Wilkinson was

able to propose several alternate solutions during initial considerations for the site,� said Ashby Gressette, AIA, president of Stevens & Wilkinson, Columbia. “Councilmen and their civic leaders recognized the value of having the new building at this site, serving as another major contributor to the city’s growing downtown redevelopment.� In June 2015, Florence County retained Stevens & Wilkinson to develop construction documents for the new building. The firm serves as the architecture, engineering, and interior design firm of record for the county. Goforth Brown & Associates, based in Florence, was selected as associate architect, and BE&K Building Group, with an office in Greenville, was chosen for construction services. Construction began in December, and the building is scheduled to open in early 2018. To evaluate the building, program, and operational needs of the courts at the onset, Stevens & Wilkinson, in association with Justice Planning Associates (JPA), conducted an extensive needs assessment and facility evaluation. JPA focused on judicial planning, case load analysis, and projected staff occupancy, while Stevens & Wilkinson created Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) drawings and engineering documents to assess existing building conditions and systems. The joint assessment determined that the approximately 33,000 square feet of space available for expansion would not address longterm space needs, nor

resolve significant operational and security issues, especially for the courts. Following this strategic evaluation, the team developed six design scenarios reflecting varying new court system designs, security features and circulation routes. The chosen design for the Florence County Judicial Center features a “bar� layout where pairs of courtrooms are serviced by a high-security core. There will be four courtrooms per floor. Additional aspects of the layout revealed by Stevens & Wilkinson are a public zone, and a restricted zone serving the judges and jury, which will be separated. The courtroom is the only space where these groups will interact. The exterior design is being planned as a contemporary interpretation of classicism. The traditional elements of the base, middle and top are to be expressed in cast stone and brick veneer; engaged columns will help modulate the elevations. Two-story spans of curtain wall supporting tall windows will provide an abundance of natural light in the lobby. The entry design showcases a prominent cylindrical element, acting as a hinge between the two primary sides and featuring a three-story interior volume. Gressette and his design team conceptualized the Lshaped site plan to include a generous public entry plaza on the southeastern corner, and a landscaped courtyard reminiscent of a historic courthouse square to the south. Current planning involves special consideration being given to separating public traffic from a more

restricted security zone, while a judges’ parking area will be more secured and separated from the general public. “The landscaped entry plaza serves as a fore court to the monumental structure and provides a sequence of spaces from outside to lobby,� Gressette said. “Another popular idea offered by the design team was a broad linear green space; this was referred to as the ‘courthouse square.’ Not only did this reflect back to historic courthouse grounds, but it provided a pleasant connection between current downtown redevelopment and future growth.� Steven & Wilkinson also provided the civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and audio-visual engineering services for the project. State-of-the-art monitoring equipment reinforces the fundamental security of the design. Control rooms and secondary controls, both part of the engineering plans, are being installed to give the sheriff a reliable mechanism for global building security. Materials and finishes were specified to reflect the dignity of the courts, while remaining durable and costeffective. “We presented a sophisticated palette of materials, yet those which are not too costly, thus supporting good stewardship,� Gressette said. The existing 11-story, 168,000-square-foot Florence County Administrative and Judicial Complex was constructed in 1969 and originally housed the city and SEE JUDICIAL CENTER PAGE 7A

JUDICIAL CENTER FROM PAGE 6A county administrative agencies, along with the courts, Sheriff’s Office, police, and jail facilities. Over time, the jail was relocated and city administrative offices were transferred out of the building. The original building likely will continue to be occupied by county administrative agencies, with some unassigned space available for lease. Following is a brief description of each floor: Floor 1: Visitors will enter the building through a rotunda in the southeastern corner. The queuing area before security is planned as a light-filled, three-story space. Functions on the first floor will represent the most public traffic – the jury assembly room, Clerk of Court and Probate Court. Because of a high water table, a basement was not feasible. Therefore, the sheriff’s sally port, holding cells, and work area were also incorporated on the first floor with secure access opposite the public entrance. Floor 2: The second floor focuses on the Family Court system. According to Gressette, public access is being constructed along a well-lit, wide corridor running the length of the building, with planned seating alcoves. The Clerk of the Family Court will have office space, with easy access to the courtrooms via the restricted corridor. Pairs of courtrooms will share a high-security core connected to the sheriff’s holding area. The design plans will result with judges’ chambers having easy access to each courtroom. Floor 3: The third floor will offer a similar sequence of spaces for visitors. “A monumental stair and the elevators will open to a generous lobby, overlooking the multi-story entry space. Access to the bar of courtrooms will be through a light-filled lobby. The restricted corridor provides access to judges’ chambers and jury rooms along the north wall,” Gressette said. About Stevens & Wilkinson: Founded in 1919, Stevens & Wilkinson is a full-service architecture, engineering and interior design firm committed to providing clients with “Smart Design Solutions.” The firm’s combined design capabilities lead to projects executed with creative, innovative and holistic design solutions.

Tri-Level Tennis League formed here participate on the same team. Leagues offered: –Florence/Darlington/Hartsvi lle area - Matches to be played at Florence Tennis Center –Sumter/Manning area Matches to be played at Palmetto Tennis Center NOTE - Make sure you create your teams and players sign up in the correct league. Levels of Play: - 2.5-3.0-3.5 Men - NTRP Range 2.0-3.5 - 3.0-3.5-4.0 Men - NTRP Range 2.5-4.0 - 2.5-3.0-3.5 Women - NTRP Range 2.0-3.5 - 3.0-3.5-4.0 Women - NTRP Range 2.5-4.0 NOTE - Players can only play on one team for this first season. Since all levels will be playing on the same night we are limiting the number of teams you can play on for this first season to help us gauge interest. Team Size and Makeup: To be a legal team you must have at least one pair of each of the three NTRP levels for that division. We are also limiting the team size to 12 players. This will be a six to eight week season

The PD League is excited to announce two Tri Level Leagues for the fall of 2017. One will serve the Florence, Darlington, Hartsville area and the other will serve the Sumter, Manning area. The state league coordinator and local league coordinators that have been doing Tri Level for a couple years to learn what has worked well and what has not worked well for them, says Ed Sprenger, PD League Coordinator. This season will be a test season for the PD League. Depending on participation we will adjust in coming years, he said What is a Tri Level League?: A Tri Level League is made up of same sex doubles teams using three levels, one level per court for a team match. The emphasis of the Tri Level Leagues is funsocial-competition. In that order. There currently is no state championship for Tri Level. This league will be a little different from the Spring, Mixed, and Combo seasons in several respects. Our Goal: To create a league that promotes the fun/social aspects of tennis allowing players/friends of different levels to

with five to six matches played and we would rather see more teams with everyone getting a chance to play than large teams where players will not be able to play many matches. Remember there is no state to play for...this is for fun. Age Divisions: This first year we will only offer 18 & Over. Everyone will play at the same age group. Depending on participation and input we will look at adjusting this in year two. Match Format: Each match will consist on one court of doubles for each NTRP level that division. Matches will be 2 of 3 sets with a 10 point match tiebreak instead of a third set. So a 2.5-3.0-3.5 match would consist of one court of 2.5 doubles, one court of 3.0 doubles, and one court of 3.5 doubles. Players are allowed to play up. Day of Play: Matches will be scheduled for Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. We wanted to stay away from weekends based on what we learned from other leagues since this is during football and hunting seasons. Sumter area matches will be played at Palmetto Tennis Cen-

ter and Florence, Darlington, Hartsville matches will be played at Florence Tennis Center. We are doing this for the first season to promote the social aspect of the league and may adjust in year two. Cost: $10. This includes the $3 TennisLink fee Key Dates: • Team Creation & Registration Opens - Aug. 1 • Legal Team Deadline Sept. 10 (Must have at least one doubles pair for each level) • Season Starts - Tuesday, Sept. 26 (Two weeks after Combo Season Ends) • Last Day to add a player Oct. 24 • Season End date - Nov. 14

Friends remember their good buddy BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. The Florence community lost a really nice man of good character last week when Forrest Matthews passed away on Aug. 21. Forrest was a realtor and real estate appraiser, a musician and music instructor, and a golfer. He was a family man and a good friend to many. His many friends say he was always fun to be around.

“He just had that personality that everybody was drawn to,” said Keith Buckhouse. Although born in Washington, DC., he was raised in Florence. He graduated from South Florence High School in 1987 and then Newberry College with a degree in music. He furthered his music studies at the University of South Carolina, and also earned his masters degree in business. At an early age, Forrest became active in the music community. A bass and piano player, he played with the Florence Symphony Orchestra, Masterworks Choir and his church choir at St. Luke Lutheran Church for many years. Occasionally, he played with the pit orchestra for musicals at the Florence Little Theatre. Forrest also was a part-time music instructor at Francis Marion University for the past 20 years. Larry Anderson, professor of visual arts at FMU, said Forrest was a wonderful faculty instructor who taught music appreciation courses. “He loved doing that. He said it gave him a different view from real estate. He was a terrific musician and just a wonderful human being,” said Anderson. Long-time friend Brent Townsend said Forrest drove to Newberry every Thursday night to teach music appreciation. That seemed like quite a commitment to Townsend who once asked him why he did that. “I just enjoy it,” Forrest told his friend. “He just loved music, his family and his friends,” Brent commented. Forrest played piano whenever one was nearby and it was common for him to entertain at the keyboard during the after party following the Florence Cup – a tournament between the Florence Country Club and the Country Club of South Carolina. “Forrest was my best friend,” Brent continued, adding he was a best friend to many. When Forrest and his wife Ashley got married, Brent was uncomfortable flying out to Las Vegas for the wedding, so he drove out with special cargo – the bride’s wedding gown. “We had many laughs remembering

how I carefully carried her wedding dress above my head going into the Venetian Hotel,” Townsend recalled. A few years later Brent felt better about flying and joined a group of friends headed to Las Vegas. His good pal Forrest insisted on sitting beside him for the entire flight, he said. “Forrest was just a well-rounded person. I never met anybody who didn’t like him. He was an irreplaceable guy. No one can fill his shoes,” Brent said. Robin Thompson, president of the Florence Little Theatre and a member of

Masterworks Choir, said Forrest shared his talent all over Florence. “He was a fine man,” commented Thompson. “We lost a great musician and a great fellow.” Forrest enjoyed playing golf, said his long-time golfing friend Bubby Floyd. They were partners for the annual Florence Gamecock Club golf tournament for about 15 years. They were also fantasy football partners for about as long. “Forrest would never answer his phone,” Bubby remembers, “but one day he surprised me and answered my call.

“I am so glad that today you answered,” I told him, “because I just got a call from Lou Holtz with an invitation to play in Augusta.” The two of them played in the Augusta Nationals about 12 years ago. “Forrest was the most generous guy I know,” Floyd continued. “He was always happy and fun to be around. He loved his family, he loved his friends, and he loved his music. “There is nothing bad I could say about him. He will be missed by a lot of people,” noted Floyd.

Golfing friend Wes Beasley commented, “You could walk up to anyone in Florence and mention the name Forrest Matthews and never get anything but positive comments. He was loved by all. “We played a lot of golf together and were ‘alternate shot’ specialists. He enjoyed when the Masters Golf Tournament came around. He would always say to me ‘have you ever played that golf course? I was just wondering.’ “We got to talk a lot riding in the golf SEE

Leatherman Center celebrating Senior Center Month September is Senior Center Month and this year’s theme is “Senior Centers: Masters of Aging.” Four categories are structured to demonstrate the ways senior centers are viewed – Enrich, Engage, Enlighten and Empower. Also the Leatherman Senior Center will be celebrating its 12 year anniversary on Tuesday, Sept.19. The partnership between Senior Citizens Association and Florence County Parks and Recreation will focus on celebrating the entire month and promoting a positive image of aging in the community for our seniors. The Leatherman Senior Center works to connect older adults with meaningful experiences and develop activities, programs, and services that will add quality to their lives. Senior centers are a focal point in the community where adults age 50 and older can come together for recreational and social activities that reflect their experiences and skills. It is a place where older adults are welcome to come and participate in a variety of activities and planned programs. Florence County has two senior centers: Leatherman and the

Lake City Senior Center. Senior centers as we know them today were first introduced in New York City in 1943 to provide social activities, nutritious meals and case management to adults aged 60 and older. Seventy-four years later, senior centers are recognized as one of the most widely utilized services and it is estimated that 11,000 centers are helping millions of older adults from all walks of life continue to thrive in their communities. In an effort to increase visibility of senior centers, the Leatherman Senior Center has joined the nation in celebrating a full month of activities for National Senior Center Month. The following are the activities, programs and services that are outlined: • Flu shots – Open to members and the general public sponsored by Walgreen. The community is welcome and most insurance is accepted. Date: Thursday, Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. to noon. Agape Hospice will also be available to inform seniors about their services. • Sept. 11 Tribute – A brunch will be held for veter-

FORREST MATTHEWS FROM PAGE 1B cart together and his favorite topic of conversation was his son Townsend,“ Wes said. “Forrest was an incredible musical talent and I was fortunate enough to get to perform with him a few times. We will all miss him dearly.” Golfing buddy Keith Buckhouse remembers Forrest’s infectious laugh. “We never had a bad time when Forrest was around. He was always such fun to be with. He just had that personality that everybody was drawn to,” said Buckhouse. Florence Country Club Golf Pro Steve Behr played golf and a few tournaments with Forrest. He said Forrest was a captain of the FCC team when they used to have the Florence Cup. “He was always a fun guy with a smile on his face. He had a great attitude and was a very giving person,” commented Behr. Don Swartz says he will never forget his friend. “Forrest and his wife Ashley were waiting at the Florence airport late one night to welcome my wife and I back from Russia with our newly adopted daughter Cassie. For me, that was like coming to see us in the hospital

delivery room.” “Forrest had many, many friends,” he added. Jay Shealy became friends with Forrest when he started playing baseball at seven years old. “He was a wonderful, sweet person with a big heart. He was just the nicest person, you’d ever want to meet,” Shealy said. Bubba DuBose was another golfing buddy and long-time friend. For many years they had a standing golf game every Friday at the Florence Country Club. “Forrest enjoyed life,” Bubba commented. “He will be sorely missed. As Christians we believe we will see one another again one day.” Forrest is survived by his parents, Larry and Wilma Wilkins Matthews, his wife, Ashley T. Matthews and son, Forrest Townsend Matthews.

If you would like to share a story with our readers about Forrest, you many send it to The News Journal, 312 Railroad Ave. Florence, S.C. 29506.

The Florence Civic Center is offering a frosty alternative to the scorching summer heat. The SMGmanaged facility announced that ice skating will open to the public beginning next week. Summer skate sessions will be available for a limited time only and begin on Thursday, Aug. 31 with skating through Sunday, Sept. 10. Public ice skating sessions are two hours each. Admission is $9 for adults and $7 for children under 12 years of age. Skaters may bring their own skates or rent them for $3. The ice rink is located inside the Florence Civic Center at 3300 W. Radio Dr. Families and individuals are invited indoors to “beat the heat” and will be greeted with a beachthemed ice rink and décor. “We wanted to incorporate a summer theme, but offer a cool substitute…so we’re bringing the beach indoors,” said Nick Hooker, Director of Marketing for the Flo-

rence Civic Center. “Just wait until you see the blue ice we’re creating, it’s going to be memorable,” he continued. The limited time summer-themed ice rink will combine real palm trees, beach balls, ocean décor and blue ice along with Carolina Beach Music and hot summer hit tracks. Crews began last week and will continue the ice creation process through next Wednesday in order to have the ice ready on opening day. The blue ice which will be featured on the arena floor is created when a special additive is supplemented into the eco-friendly calcium based white paint. The mixture is sprayed onto the ice layer halfway through the ice creation process. Appling the mixture to the middle of the layers will help it stay crisp throughout the skate sessions. Asked why the Civic Center is opening ice skating during the summer, Brandon McAllister, director of

operations said, “A couple of bookings shifted, plus we completed several arena projects ahead of schedule. As soon as we saw the opening, we started planning for ice skating. Now we can offer the community an exciting and cool substitute to the sizzling heat as we say farewell to summer.” A new attraction has been added to the upcoming ice skating festivities. The FXtreme Video Game Truck with 9 monstrous 4K gaming TVs will be brought inside the arena and located next to the ice rink. The hi-tech truck offers gamers over 100 video game titles for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U and more. Players can game in several modes including one-on-one, soloplay, multi-player, group battle and team versus. The FXtreme Video Game Truck will be available on Fridays and Saturdays only; gameplay is sold separately from skate admission.
