Fun facts about New Year’s Eve As we’re about to ring in the New Year, here are some facts about New Year’s Eve to explain some of your existing traditions, and maybe inspire you to try some new ones! 1. The song traditionally sung on New Year’s, “Auld Lang Syne,” means “times gone by”. 2. Black eyed peas, ham, and cabbage are considered good luck if you eat them on New Year’s Eve or Day because it is believed

Philip Maenza Editor they will bring you money. 3. Lobster and chicken are considered bad luck because lobsters can move backward and chickens can scratch in reverse, so it is

thought these foods could bring a reversal of fortune. 4. In Italy, people wear red underwear on New Year’s Day to bring good luck all year long. The tradition dates back to medieval times. 5. Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball was first dropped in 1907 after there was a fireworks ban. The original ball weighed 700 pounds and featured 100 25watt bulbs. Much different to the ball we know today!

6. The earliest known New Year’s celebrations were in Mesopotamia and date back to 2000 B.C. 7. January is named after Janus, the god with two faces, one looking forward and one looking backward. He is the god of beginnings, transitions, gates, doors, passages, and endings. 8. Ancient Persians gave New Year’s gifts of eggs, which symbolized productiveness. 9. The first recorded

New Year’s celebration dates back 4,000 years to Babylon, when the first moon after the spring equinox marked a new year. In 46 B.C., Julius Caesar created a calendar with Jan. 1 as the first day of the year, partly to honor Janus, the month’s namesake. 10. The tradition to kiss at midnight isn’t a recent invention. According to old English and German folklore, the first person you come across in the new year could set the

tone for the next 12 months. 11. To ensure a year of good luck, firecrackers and noisemakers became tradition in order to scare away any remaining evil spirits and to ensure a brand new start. 12. 2,000 pounds (907kg) of confetti are dropped on the crowd in Times Square at midnight.

Financial guide to inheriting a home If you stand to inherit a property, such as a family home or vacation condo, the gift presents a critical financial decision: whether to sell, rent or keep the home. And oftentimes, this decision is handled while dealing with the loss of a loved one. Spend time today thinking about how the property may fit into your lifestyle and financial picture. When the time comes, taking the following three actions can help inform your choice: 1. Set up an appraisal to learn the home’s value. Hire a professional appraiser who can determine the fair market value of the property on the date you assumed ownership. Having a solid idea of the value can not only help you decide whether to sell or keep the home today, but it can establish a cost basis should you decide to sell it in the future.

John R. Coble III Coble Wealth Management

2. Calculate the cost to maintain the home. Mortgage payments, annual property taxes and utility bills will be your responsibility. Factoring in other regular expenses, such as yard maintenance, snow removal, and housekeeping, can give you a realistic picture of what it will take financially to keep the home. Also, check with your attorney to ensure there are no tax liens or other assessments on the property. 3. Determine your ability and desire to maintain the home. Do you have the time

to handle the upkeep? Additionally, think about how you’ll manage the property in retirement if you’re unable to perform maintenance tasks yourself. As you work through these actions, here are some additional considerations that come with the decision to sell, rent or keep the home: Sell Parting ways with a family home can be emotional – even when you know doing so is the right decision. Give yourself time to prepare the home for sale. This way you can sort through your loved one’s belongings and find closure at your own pace. When the time is right, a cleaning company, home staging services and a realtor can help you put the property on the market. If you make a profit on the sale, apply the money

toward your financial goals. The extra sum can help make your goals of retirement, college tuition for grandkids or estate plans a reality. Selling the home has tax implications that vary by state, so talk to a tax professional for guidance. Rent If renting the home is appealing to you, research what the rental market is like in your area. Determine if a reasonable monthly rental price provides enough cash flow to cover upkeep costs. Hiring a management company to clean, make minor home repairs or manage the rental process may be attractive, particularly if the property is miles away from your primary residence. Additional tax considerations may apply depending on the number of days you use the home versus rent the space to others. Consult a tax pro-

fessional to understand if and how your tax situation may change. Keep The ability to continue family traditions, have a future retirement space or a vacation getaway may make keeping the home the right decision for you. If you're sharing ownership with a sibling or another family member, decide how you will split the financial and maintenance responsibilities. If you inherit the home outright, the choices are yours to make. However, communicating your intentions with others may help alleviate tension, especially if the home has sentimental value to your family. Consider the following financial steps as well: • Purchase home insurance. If the property has a pool, trampoline, boat or other recreational items, you

may need additional coverage. • Save strategically for a remodel or upgrades if you want to adapt the home to suit your family’s lifestyle. • Update your estate plan. If you intend to keep the home in your family for another generation or two, don’t wait to prepare your legal documents. Advance planning can help pass the property smoothly to your inheritors. Have a conversation with your beneficiaries so they know what to expect. Making decisions after the loss of a loved one can feel overwhelming. It’s okay to take your time and ask for help with choices along the way. Guidance from a realtor, attorney and financial advisor may help you be thoughtful about how the inherited home fits into your lifestyle and financial plan.

“I am strong!” Note it says that you must first say you are strong to help convince yourselves and to let that devil know that you are on the way up and out of your dark place. Say it until you see it! Find yourself feeling the confidence of Christ on every side. Come out of that dark room and turn on the lights. Put on some music and declare yourself to be free in the name that is above every name. Don’t sit there and agree with that deceptive voice of defeat. Begin to tell

your enemy what his demise will be and stop listening to his declaration over your life. Turn the tables and cry out to God and I promise He will rescue you. Every day that you live is one to be enjoyed no matter what may have happened 10 years ago. This is the day that the Lord has made and I will decide to rejoice and be glad in it! Every blessing to you all! For bookings or more info: Leslie Williamson Ministries on Facebook.

The horrible holidays The spirit of depression has been on the rise. I have been hearing of so many cases of people that I know suffering with the effects of it. Sometimes the holidays are accompanied by it and it makes many people go into hiding rather than enjoy the festivities and their families. God has an answer for all things, but even if we are believers we have to make the decision to receive the answer. Depression will make you think that you don’t deserve to be happy which is a lie. I want to encourage you to fight for what is waiting on you. As long as you continue

LESLIE B. WILLIAMSON to listen to that voice that continues to hold you hostage you will remain bound. See yourself coming out of that dark place and run if you have to, just don’t look

back and allow God to rescue you. It’s not the holidays that bring us joy, it’s the love of Christ that gives us joy unspeakable and full of glory. Joy that supersedes depression and anxiety is yours and all you have to do is receive it. Depression can exhaust its prey to the point where they don’t have the strength to fight. The scriptures even have a remedy for that as well. 2 Corinthians 12:10 says, “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weak-

nesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” You are strong through Christ Jesus and not of your own power! You can’t depend on yourself to shake it off, but you absolutely can depend on our Savior to fortify us in strength. Here again we see that confession is made manifest when spoken with conviction and belief. Joel 3:10 says, “Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weakling say,

Alzheimer Caregiver’s Support Group

Writers take a vow of silence On Monday, January 7, 2019, Word Weavers International, Inc., will celebrate the launch of a Christian writers group in Hartsville,. Word Weavers has a unique model for peer manuscript reviews —silence. Word Weavers meetings begin with prayer and a time of networking. Members share publishing accomplishments, writing news, and information about local writing events and conferences. The core focus of the meeting, however, is on critiques, which are limited to 1,500 words per member per meeting. During critiques, peer writers read manuscripts aloud while others follow printed copies. After the piece is read, group members—some of whom are published authors—offer feedback on everything from plotting and character development to syntax and punctuation. Aside from a short introduction of the piece, the writer receiving critique is not

located at 103 Campus Drive, Hartsville. The meeting will begin at 10 a.m. This will be informational and uplifting as caregivers share their experiences. Any questions, contact Jackie Anderson at 393-8521. _______________________

Raceway makes donation to Boys and Girls Clubs in honor of Sgt. Carraway “We are pleased to make this donation to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee in honor of Sgt. Carraway,” Tharp said. “It’s a privilege to stand next to Mrs. Carraway and the staff of the Boys and Girls Club to make this donation on behalf of a man that truly cared and devoted countless hours of his spare time for the community, the Boys and Girls Club in particular, which was an organization he cherished. We thank all the participants that attended our 5K event presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors for supporting this cause and paying tribute to a great man who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

Standing with the check in hand are Boys and Girls Club of the Pee Dee Executive Director Neal Zimmerman (teal shirt, left), Mrs. Allison Carraway (center) and track president Kerry Tharp (right). Standing around the participants are officers from the Florence Police Department and members of the Boys and Girls Club staff and Sgt. Carraway’s family.

Sgt. Carraway, a lifelong resident of Darlington and 30year veteran of the neighboring Florence Police Department, was killed in the line of duty on October 3. He was a dedicated servant to the Darlington and Florence communities having been involved in a variety of community activities that benefited many residents,

including children and teenagers. The proceeds for the donation were made possible by strong support for the Darlington Raceway 5K Presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors, which took place on Nov. 9 at the track under the lights. Hundreds of runners turned out for the event with

a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee, an organization Sgt. Carraway was heavily involved in for many years. Darlington Raceway will look to continue the 5K event on an annual basis in support of law enforcement. Sgt. Carraway was one of seven total law enforcement

officers from the Florence County Sheriff’s Office and Florence Police Department that were shot in an incident in Florence on October 3. Florence County Sheriff’s Deputy Farrah Turner also passed away from her injuries on October 22, nearly three weeks after the incident. The other five officers are continuing to recover.

New research from AAA reveals that clouded or yellowed headlights generate only 20 percent of the amount of light that new headlights do, leading to dangerous nighttime driving conditions. “This information is so important,” said Tiffany Wright, AAA Carolinas spokesperson. “If you are driving on a poorly lit highway and your headlights are only giving off 20 percent of light, you are vulnerable to unforeseen collisions.” Most headlights are made of plastic and exposure to sunlight breaks down the plastic coating, causing discoloration that obscures the amount of light produced. Depending on where and how the vehicle is used, headlights can begin showing signs of deterioration as early as three years to five years.

Illuminating the dangers of driving with cloudy headlights With 50 percent of crashes occurring at night, AAA urges drivers to check their headlights for signs of deterioration and invest in new headlights or, at a minimum, a low-cost service to boost the safety of driving after dark. AAA broke down the findings for the best options if your headlights are deteriorating: • Replacing headlights with original equipment manufacturer parts is the most effective method to restore light output back to 100 percent. • Aftermarket parts also performed well, restoring light output between 83 and 90 percent, however these did fail to meet certain requirements for light intensity and were found to be more likely to produce glare for oncoming traffic.

• Restoring headlights, while the most cost effective option, offered less of an improvement in light output than replacement. Professional and DIY restoration returned light output back to approximately 70 percent. Both restoration methods, however, produced more glare than is acceptable according to DOT criteria. Unlike batteries or tires, most drivers are not in the habit of routinely inspecting their headlights. AAA suggests drivers check their headlights for changes in appearance such as yellowing or clouding and if the bulb is difficult to see, it is time to have the lenses replaced or restored as soon as possible. AAA recommends replacement since this method offers the most improvement in the amount of light produced. CARS
