Dare to Excape?

What is an Escape Room?

Hartsville’s 1st Live Escape Game

Teams or groups of players enter a themed room. The competition is not against each other, it is against the clock. Participants are locked in a room and have 60 minutes to search, find, decipher and connect the dots of clues to solve a series of puzzles which lead to the means of escape. They must work cooperatively to be successful using logic and reasoning to find the way out.

Cypherspace Room As an elite team of astronauts chosen by NASA, your mission is to retrieve a probe that has been collecting data from a wormhole in deep space for the past one hundred years. You must achieve this before your space ship is destroyed by the radioactivity.

Keeping up in our fast changing world of devices ‘Our world is quickly changing and it is doing so right before our eyes. Many electronic items and services that were once so necessary to us no longer exist. I am thinking of: Film cameras and camera shops that developed and printed our photos. Telephone booths and pay phones seem to have disappeared. In London, however, they have found a new use for their iconic red

phone booths. Some have been painted black and converted into a WiFi and phone charging station. We no longer have to remember phone numbers because we store them in our phones and press the name to connect. Typewriters have also become obsolete. Instead of typing classes, we now have keyboarding classes.

Music technology has moved from records, to 8track cartridge tapes, to small cassettes to CDs. Recorded movies have progressed from Beta and VHS tapes to DVDs, and now they may be streamlined and downloaded on computers, IPads and even smart phones. Through this evolution we lost our record shops and video stores, and gained the ability to watch a movie anywhere we want by just a click of our TV remote or other devices. Ironically, record albums seem to be making a comeback and we can once again find turntables to play them on.

Remember, Walkmans and MP3 players? Gone. Now we have iPhones with ear buds. No need to tape songs on the radio, because we can hear whatever we desire from numerous apps. Short hand seems to have disappeared with speedwriting. Communicating by phone seems to be “old school,” especially with our youth. Talking on the phone is quickly being replaced by texting. Notice how every organization or agency is an acronym? Maybe it’s just me, but it seems people spout off initial letters as if

everyone knows what they are talking about. We now have ecards, and invitations and “thank you” notes are being emailed. Books, thank goodness, are still popular but they have to compete with ebooks which are cheaper and don’t require space to keep them. We can find them easily on our devices without leaving our home, download and read right away. Who uses encyclopedias today? We just go online or Google whatever information we need or want to know. We even find tutorials online on how to build, make, fix or repair things.

In this 21st Century, we communicate by text, Facebook, Twitter, Messenger or a myriad of other apps. Even social media is constantly changing. In the 1990s, chat rooms were popular, but they were quickly replaced by Myspace, blogging and instant messaging, such as Yahoo Messenger. Then came Skype and Linkedin in 2003, FaceBook in 2004, YouTube in 2005, and Twitter in 2006 followed by Instagram and Snapchat. Whew, I can’t keep up! And, I can’t even begin to imagine what changes we will witness in the next 10 years.

Darlington High names Heilbronn varsity boys’ basketball head coach Darlington High School announced that Anthony Heilbronn, a social studies teacher at the school, will serve as the new varsity boys’ head basketball coach. Heilbronn served as an assistant coach with the team for seven years, and he takes over after the retirement of longtime head coach Ken Howle. Darlington High Principal Cortney Gehrke praised Heilbronn’s ability to coach and mentor studentathletes. “Coach Heilbronn’s proven commitment to our students, whether that be in the classroom, as athletes or in life, speaks to the outstanding character with which he will serve our basketball program,” Gehrke said. “We look forward to the team’s success under his leadership.”

Coming Soon... Watch for our EGG HUNT CONTEST in the March 14th edition of the Hartsville News Journal. Find the eggs hidden throughout the newspaper to win one of four $25 gift certificates toward the purchase of your Easter dinner!

ANTHONY HEILBRONN Heilbronn is originally from Flushing Michigan, and he graduated from Grand Valley State University with a bachelor’s degree in Social Studies. He later earned a Master of Science in Education in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.

“I’m truly at a loss for words right now as this opportunity is a dream come true,” Heilbronn said. “I’ve dreamed about this moment since I was younger, and thanks to Mrs. Gehrke and Coach Phil Jones, I’ll get to experience that. I’m excited to get to work and very thankful that I get the opportunity to do what I love for a living.” During his seven years with the boys’ basketball program at Darlington High, Heilbronn spent six as the lead assistant coach. He previously served as head track and field coach at Hartsville High School for three years, and he is currently in his fourth year as an assistant coach for the track and field program at Darlington High.

Darlington County Board of Education names chief financial officer

The Darlington County Board of Education announced the hire of a new district chief financial officer (CFO) as well as the retirement of two long-serving principals. Renee Douglas, who served most recently as a tax analyst for Sonoco Products Company, will be the district’s new CFO. Douglas will begin her new role with the Darlington County School District (DCSD) by the end of February. Dr. Bill Boyd, interim superintendent, said the district is excited about Douglas leading the district forward. “Renee Douglas brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our Business Office,” Boyd said. “The Board has the utmost confidence in her ability, and we are thrilled for her to join our team.” Douglas, who is a certified public accountant, has worked for Sonoco since

RENEE DOUGLAS 2012, preparing extensive quarterly and year-end tax provisions. She served as the director of finance and information technology for the city of Hartsville from 2005-2012. Before working for the city, she accumulated 18 years of service in public accounting in Hartsville, Darlington and Florence. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis on Accounting from the

College of Charleston, and she has completed 40 hours of continued professional education per year to retain her certification. She also completed the Government Finance Officers Association of South Carolina training program offered by the University of South Carolina, which included classes in financial planning and budgeting, capital planning and forecasting, financial management, governmental accounting and financial reporting and auditing. DCSD also announced the resignations of Donna Barrett and Garry Flowers, two longtime principals in the district. Barrett, who has served as principal of Carolina Elementary School for 20 years, and Flowers, principal of Lamar Elementary School for the past 18 years, will both retire at the end of the school year. Boyd thanked Barrett and

Palmetto Hands Fine Craft Exhibit at Hartsville Museum

The Hartsville Museum is excited to present the 2017 South Carolina Palmetto Hands Fine Craft Exhibit opening March 1. Organized and presented by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department, this unique exhibit offers fine craft artists from across South Carolina the opportunity to exhibit their inspiring objects in the media of clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood and three-dimensional mixed media. Each year thousands enjoy the refined talents of South Carolina fine craft artists featured in this exhibition. This exhibit features 18 artworks from fine craft artists that participated in the annual South Carolina Palmetto Hands Juried Fine Craft Competition & Exhibition. As the state’s only fine craft competition and exhibit, objects are pre-juried and awards are determined by a different juror

each year. Applicants are asked to submit works in the categories of clay, fiber, metal, wood and 3D mixed media. Cash awards are then made at the discretion of the show juror and pieces are selected for this exhibit, including the Best in Show. The 2017 best in show prize was awarded to artist Jocelyn Chateauvert for her beautiful forms and knowledge and control of her medium. Chateauvert handmakes abaca paper and dyes with various pigments before constructing her elaborate and organic sculptural forms. Her winning piece, William Morris Reminded, showcases her approach to her pieces. “The ritual of hand papermaking is ancient, scientific, and rhythmic. Air-drying these pieces adds the unexpected: the paper shrinks, twists, and cockles, forming three-dimensional shapes of subtle

design. Stretching and shaping each surface by hand forms the piece to its final expression,” said Chateauvert. 2017 South Carolina Palmetto Hands Fine Craft Exhibit will be on display through the end of March. The exhibit is a part of a traveling exhibition program offered through the South Carolina State Museum. The Traveling Exhibitions Program gives galleries, museums, and art centers across South Carolina the opportunity to request the exhibit to tour their facilities, thus providing additional exposure for the selected artists. For more information, visit the Hartsville Museum online at hartsvillemuseum. org or call 843-383-3005. Be sure to follow Hartsville Museum on Facebook for updates on the exhibit.

Flowers for their many years of service to the district. “We are extremely fortunate to have had Mrs. Barrett and Mr. Flowers educating and preparing the children of Darlington County for so many years,” Boyd said. “Their leadership and guidance will be missed, but we appreciate and thank them.” Barrett began her career in DCSD as a resource teacher at West Hartsville Elementary before transitioning to Washington Street Elementary as a coordinating teacher. She has 30 years of service in DCSD. Flowers taught sixth, seventh and eighth grade students and worked as assistant principal at the for-

mer Darlington Junior High School before taking over at Lamar Elementary. He has

more than 20 years of service in the district.

Do you know what is planned at Byerly Park and the new water park? The City of Hartsville has applied for an alcohol permit for the sale and consumption of alcohol on the premises! What has been a wonderful place enjoyed by the whole community is in jeopardy if this goes forward. Alcohol imperils drivers and guardians, affects judgement and reason needed to be vigilant, and puts children and adults at risk. This increases the possibility of a tragedy related to alcohol that could have been prevented. All of the six county water parks in Charleston and Greenville do not permit alcohol. Think about the pervasive influence of alcohol already in our area. There are 34 establishments around our city selling alcohol for consumption on the premises besides the liquor, grocery, pharmacy, and convenience stores. Stand for the legacy for whom the park is named, Dr. W. L. Byerly, who gave his life in service for the health of Hartsville. Hold high the standard for this lovely park to be a place where life is celebrated, families strengthened, and the community made stronger. Written protest form ABL-20 may be downloaded from the SC Department of Revenue website and must be postmarked no later than March 9, 2018 at 5:00 pm. You must live in Darlington County or reside within 5 miles of Byerly Park to protest the license. To be valid, you must also agree to be present at an administrative hearing as notified, or be subject to a fine if a no-show.

Coker provides students with iPads Coker College has partnered with Apple to provide incoming first-year students with their own iPads. Students who enroll at the college’s Hartsville campus will receive a brand new device, preloaded with the programs and apps required for success in their classes. When students graduate from Coker College, the iPad is theirs to keep. This initiative begins with the 2018-19 academic year and will continue in future terms. Coker College administration hopes it will introduce new ways of learning and foster effective integration of technology in the classroom. Professors will utilize iPads, as well as Apple TV, to provide a 21st-century

learning experience and equip students with the skills for success in a technologydriven world. Susan Henderson, Chief Academic Officer and Dean of the Faculty at Coker College, is co-chairing the AccessCoker Committee on campus and believes this initiative will prepare students for the collaborative aspects of their future careers. “iPads will encourage collaboration in and outside the classroom,” she explained. “They will help students discover new ways of learning and remain more connected to the campus community.” Henderson and the faculty at Coker College are excited to embrace the new opportunities at hand, and

explore new ways that this tool can enhance and support teaching and learning. “Coker College is known for active, student-centered classrooms with round-table collaboration,” said Henderson. “Faculty members, student success staff, and athletic coaches are engaging in professional development opportunities and finding unique ways to implement iPad technology in their work, with the goal of keeping students on the cutting edge as they move toward careers.” The college is dedicated to successful implementation of this program across campus and continued exploration of innovative teaching and learning elements.

The possibility cannot be dismissed. Sensitive financial and medical data pertaining to your life may not be as safe as you think, and thieves may turn to a vast resource to try and mine it – the Social Security Administration Consider three facts, which in combination seem especially troubling. One, Social Security’s databases contain sensitive personal information on hundreds of millions of Americans, both living and dead. Two, more than 34 million Americans interact with the SSA online. Three, nearly 100% of Social Security benefits are disbursed electronically. The more you reflect on all this, the more you realize that cybercrooks could take advantage of you by creating a bogus online Social Security account in your name, in order to steal your benefits and/or your personal data. Creating and maintaining a MySSA account may lessen the threat. Last year, Social Security advised all

John R. Coble III Coble Wealth Management

current and future benefit recipients to set up and actively use an online profile. The agency’s blog noted that this simple move could “take away the risk of someone else trying to create [an account] in your name, even if they obtain your Social Security number.” This is a case where you want to be first rather than second. Setting up a MySSA account is easy; the first step is to visit Whether you have an existing account or not, you will want to review your mailing address, date of birth, and other essential pieces of information. If they are not correct, they demand attention. Are you working full time in your late sixties? Then be

vigilant. If you have reached Full Retirement Age (66 or 67) without filing for retirement benefits, your Social Security profile may be especially tantalizing to a cyberthief. In this circumstance, you are eligible to receive up to six months of benefits retroactively, as a lump sum. That could mean a payday of more than $10,000 for a criminal who assumes your identity. Make no mistake, cybercrooks have exploited Social Security accounts. While the SSA told Reuters this year that the incidence of fraud is “very rare,” a 2016 audit by the Office of the Inspector General found that during 2013, around $20 million in Social Security payments were directed to the wrong parties. That swindling involved about 12,200 MySSA accounts – less than 2% of the total in 2013, but certainly enough to raise eyebrows. The SSA tightened authentication standards in

2017. It added security codes to help certify the legitimacy of MySSA account users. It regularly analyzes MySSA transactions for fraud. What should you do if you suspect fraud? If you log in and it appears your monthly benefit has not been sent to you, contact the SSA at 1800-772-1213 or call your local SSA field office. In addition, you can activate the “Block Electronic Access” option on your MySSA account; that will prevent anyone, you included, from accessing your Social Security records via computer or phone. Electronic access is only restored when you get in touch with Social Security to confirm your identity. Establish an online Social Security account and keep checking it. In logging on regularly, you may do your part to help the SSA detect and ward off criminals who could use your identity to collect or file for benefits. Could your personal information soon be stolen?

Spiritual buffet I love going out to eat with friends and family and one of the best places to go is a good ‘ole buffet. Walking in you see and smell the steaming smorgasbord of delectable delights to choose from. There is so much to select that you can hardly decide what to try first. Unlike a food buffet, we can’t just pick and choose what we want because the scriptures say that we must eat the whole roll.

LESLIE B. WILLIAMSON mouth it will be sweet as honey.” The angel instructed him to eat the entire scroll and not leave anything. In other words, we can’t pick and choose what God wants

us to partake. We either eat it all or none at all. Sometimes we want to treat our walk with Christ just like a buffet where we can choose what we encounter on this journey, but in order to be prepared, we have to consume it all. It may be bitter or unpleasant going down, but in the end it will do us good. We can’t afford to be selective about how God molds us. Just understand that no matter how tough it may seem, it is for our good and we will benefit from it! ©3/2/18 LBW

Children’s Trust awards $75,000 Three schools in S.C. will be gifted a DON’T QUIT! fitness center to Darlington County First Steps

Children’s Trust has awarded a $75,000 grant to Darlington County First Steps to implement the Strengthening Families Program (SFP) this year. The program’s first 14-week cycle will be delivered this spring at West Hartsville Elementary School. Another cycle will take place in the fall. SFP is an evidence-based program that works closely with families with children ages 6 to 11 to develop positive discipline practices, stay resilient in tough times, reduce conflict, improve parenting skills, and assist children with social skills, relationships, and school performance. All of these factors play an important role in keeping families strong while protecting against potential child abuse or neglect. “With the capability to deliver evidence-based programs and community-based prevention services, Darlington County First Steps is a proven partner that operates with fidelity, transparency and integrity,” said Sue Williams, CEO of Children’s Trust CEO.

“We are proud to support them in this important work within their community. Our experience has proven that when we invest in South Carolina’s communities, all of us working together can create long-term sustainability and impact.” Children’s Trust is supporting the Strengthening Families Program in 24 counties across the state. Our organization provides training, collects data and monitors the program to ensure it reaches maximum potential. The Duke Endowment and the S.C. Department of Social Services are the funding partners in this effort. “We are so excited to be a part of the Strengthening Families Program and to have a partnership with Children’s Trust, Darlington County First Steps and The Child and Family Resource Foundation,” said Julie Mahn, principal of West Hartsville Elementary. “The program began on Feb. 22 and will run for 14 weeks. Staff from the Child and Family Resource Foundation has been in our school since the

fall working on this program. We have had lots of interest from parents, and we already have a waiting list for Cycle 2.” A county partner of South Carolina First Steps serving Darlington, Hartsville, Lamar and Society Hill, Darlington County First Steps strives to ensure the most efficient resources and information are available so families in these communities are strong. Program services focus on family well-being, school readiness, parenting skills, reproductive health, and contraceptive education. The Child and Family Resource Foundation has a multilayered approach to providing psycho-emotional and social support for children in the local community. The Foundation’s programs include grief camps, mentoring programs, hosting community dinners, assisting teen moms with physical and emotional support, and Back to School backpack programs for Title I schools.

Governor Henry McMaster is pleased to be joined by South Carolina Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman to announce that fitness icon Jake Steinfeld, Chairman of the National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils (NFGFC), has kicked off 2018 by selecting the State of South Carolina for its 2018 DON’T QUIT! fitness campaign. The NFGFC will deliver a stateof-the-art DON’T QUIT! Fitness Center to three schools for demonstrating leadership in getting and keeping their students fit. The nomination process opens today and will run through Friday, April 6. Anyone can nominate a school by visiting “Childhood obesity is a serious problem that can follow a child into adulthood. I’ve declared war on this preventable disease and I’m inspired to see elected leaders like Governor McMaster immediately jump on board to join the battle and welcome us into his state.

with recognizes that obesity is neither a democrat nor republican issue, it’s a kids issue and all have vowed to do everything possible to help,” said Jake Steinfeld. “So far we’ve delivered DON’T QUIT! Fitness Centers in 24 states and Washington, DC and the response from students, teachers and communities has been unbelievable. Kids are excited about working out and being physically active and, as a result, their academic performance and self-esteem has skyrocketed. Now, South Carolina schools have an opportunity to make a change that will have a lasting impact on kids well into their future.” “Teaching young people healthy habits at a young age has proven to be one of the most effective ways to encourage health and productivity later in life,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “The work that Jake and his team are doing around the country is something that South Carolina is proud to be a part of and a cause everyone can support. Our young people are the most important asset in our state and country, and we must do everything we can to support them and provide them with every opportunity for success.” “The health of South Carolina’s students has a strong impact on their success in the classroom and throughout their lives,” said South Carolina Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman. “I applaud Governor McMaster for recognizing the importance of ensuring our students are healthy and ready to learn and partnering with the National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils to bring this exciting opportunity to South Carolina schools.” The National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils program will make its way into all 50 states in the coming years. Each fitness center is financed through public/private partnerships with companies like The Coca-Cola Company, Anthem Foundation, Wheels Up, and Nike, and does not rely on taxpayer dollars or state funding. TuffStuff Fitness International provides all of the fitness equipment, which is manufactured right

here in the United States. The Foundation’s goal is to build a nation of the fittest, healthiest kids in the world. “I have witnessed firsthand the positive impact fitness centers have had on students and their communities. When you provide schools with the tools and inspiration, you’ll be amazed by the changes that take place,” continued Steinfeld. “Our children are our most precious resource and by providing them with a strong foundation in health and fitness, we can feel confident that they’ll excel beyond their wildest dreams.” Physical activity and exercise are shown to help prevent and treat more than 40 chronic diseases, enhance individual health and quality of life, and reduce health care costs. In schools, studies show that physical activity improves academic achievement, increases confidence and self-esteem, reduces discipline problems, cuts absenteeism, and fosters better interpersonal relationships. For more information about the NFGFC or to download a nomination form, visit About The National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils The National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils (NFGFC) seeks to encourage and reward innovation in the field of youth fitness by awarding fitness centers to schools that use new and unique methods to promote student physical activity and wellness. The NFGFC envisions a fitness center in every school in the U.S., helping to build a nation that—through innovation and a “DON’T QUIT!” attitude— boasts the fittest kids in the world. Since 2012, the NFGFC has delivered fitness centers in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Georgia, New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, California, New Mexico, Connecticut, Virginia, Illinois, Arkansas, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Washington, Wisconsin, Arizona, Maryland, Louisiana, Oregon, and Colorado. In 2018, we will gift fitness centers to four more states including South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kansas.

Anti-diarrhea drug trend a new threat A new trend has caught on across America. The over the counter drug Imodium AD has been being abused to create an opiate-like high. In some cases, heroin addicts have attempted to use the drugs to get through opiate withdrawals. In others, it is people looking for a legal high. The drug is taken in very large amounts sometimes 200 times the recommended dosage. The drug taken in such large amounts can be extremely dangerous with the potential to cause fatal overdose. This has resulted in the Food and Drug Administration or FDA releasing warnings over the last several weeks. One doctor at Baycare Clinic in Wisconsin detailed the dangerous effects of the

drug.. “The biggest safety issue is what happens to the heart. It disrupts our electrical pathways in our heart. When it happens, it’s like flipping a switch. It’s not like you feel a little bit worse and a little bit worse and then you die. You just collapse,” he explained. As a result, the FDA is currently working with the producers of Imodium A-D to limit the doses that come in a pack to prevent the abuse. However, it is unclear yet if further action will need to be taken. The FDA has not made any decision to pull the medicine from the shelves. For the meantime, Narconon Drug Rehabilitation would like to warn you to keep an eye out for those buying Imodium A-D.
