The loss of a beloved pet As much as I love writing stories each week to entertain and inform, sometimes life can throw you a curve ball. Being a pet lover is a blessing and a curse. We get to laugh and play with them and they in return give us their unconditional love, but we also must deal with the reality that one day we will lose them. Time for some therapy. It is natural to feel devastated by feelings of grief and sadness. While some people may not understand the depth of feelings you had for your pet, you should never feel guilty about grieving for an animal friend. There are healthy ways to cope with your loss, comfort yourself and begin the process of moving on. Set aside time to grieve. Give ourselves time to feel, experience, and let the emotions we are experiencing

William Mingus Editor

release at regular intervals along our journey through grief and on a daily basis in the beginning. Otherwise, you might find yourself stuffing your emotions which can cause more pain down the road. Reflect on the life shared between yourself and your beloved pet. Active reflections can be hard, when we take the time to purposely reflect in this manner, try to focus on what positive memories were shared. Maintain a routine for your living pets as best you can. Animals thrive on routine and while we grieve our

pets experience the loss of their companions too. Routines allow us a sense of structure and familiarity, although the first few times can be painful, these immediate triggers can reduce over time. Memorialize the memory and love of your pet. Saying “see you later” to ones we love can be a crucial step in moving through the grief experience. Sometimes we don’t always get to say goodbye and not having that closure can leave an empty feeling. By memorializing your pet, it gives you some form of closure. There is never a wrong way to memorialize the beautiful experiences and life that was shared. One thing that always gives me a sense of comfort is a poem, no one knows who wrote it but it brings comfort in times of loss.

The Rainbow Bridge Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play

together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous

reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together... In memory of our beloved Pearl

Students from Mayo High School participate in S.C. STEM Signing Day Two Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology seniors recently participated in the Third Annual S.C. STEM Signing Day, presented by Boeing South Carolina, BMW Manufacturing Co. and the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance. The University of South Carolina Alumni Center hosted the event. Mariscia Mark and Yorel Stevenson joined 92 other students from around the state April 10 for the prestigious ceremony. Mark and Stevenson were chosen for the occasion based on criteria set forth by the S.C. Manufacturers Alliance. STEM Signing day recognizes students in South Carolina who have pursued STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) during their high school careers. The stu-

the S.C. Future Makers initiative using the Tallo career portfolio platform. Mark will attend the University of South Carolina and study nursing, while Stevenson will attend Tuskegee Uni-

versity and study aerospace engineering. “Boeing is honored to recognize the achievements of some of the top students across South Carolina as they commit to careers in

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math,” said John Blazey, vice president of Boeing Global Engagement. “This event demonstrates Boeing’s commitment to STEM education and ensuring that South Carolina’s future workforce remains strong and thrives.” “STEM Signing Day honors our talented South Carolina students. At BMW, we strive every day to make the best and most technologically advanced automobiles in the market, the BMW Ultimate Driving Machine,” said Scott Medley, BMW’s Human Resource Department manager. “We are proud to recognize so many young people that have worked hard to achieve excellence in STEM disciplines.” “S.C. STEM Signing day was created to recognize the fact that there’s so much talent and opportunity in South

Plant workers employed before 1981 diagnosed with various cancers are entitled to special benefits. Lung cancer, esophageal cancer, laryngeal cancer, pharyngeal cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, rectal cancer, and mesothelioma are frequently caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos-laced products were used for decades at Sonoco. Neither employees nor management were aware of the asbestos

risk. Asbestos is a mineral that in its natural state is harmless. It becomes harmful when it is pulled apart or ground up into flexible fibers. Then, when inhaled or swallowed, microscopic asbestos fibers may be permanently affixed to body tissue. Over many years, these fibers may cause genetic changes that can lead to cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, “It can take from 10

to 40 years or more for asbestos-related cancers to appear.” To compensate cancer victims and the families of deceased cancer victims, federal bankruptcy courts have required asbestos manufacturers to set aside hundreds of millions of dollars in private trusts. Through these trusts, cancer victims can receive money damages by the filing of timely, detailed, and accurate claims.

2019 STEM Signing Day – South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster (center) joins dozens of students from across the state who participated in the Third Annual S.C. STEM Signing Day at the USC Alumni Center on April 10. Two students from the Darlington County School District, Mariscia Mark and Yorel Stevenson, were invited to participate. dents also plan to continue STEM education at two- and four-year colleges. The students were identified through

Carolina,” said Sara Hazzard, President and CEO of the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance. “We are very proud to celebrate the achievements and future steps of some of our state’s brightest minds – students who will lead the way as we advance innovation and technology in the 21st century.” The South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance is the only statewide organization dedicated exclusively to the interests of manufacturers. Its mission is to elevate the quality of life for all South Carolinians by advancing the state’s manufacturing industry. The SCMA membership is comprised of more than 200 manufacturing companies that represent more than 80,000 associates in South Carolina. For additional information about the SCMA, please visit www. myscma.com.

Norris Injury Lawyers has announced a specific initiative to assist Sonoco employees in recovering money set aside for them in these asbestos trusts. Cancer victims or the families of deceased victims who worked at the plant before 1981 may call 800-478-9578 for a free evaluation of their claim. Additional information is available at getnorris.com/ asb.

Municipal Court payments now accepted online Sonoco workers diagnosed with cancer secure cash benefits from multiple private trusts

The City of Hartsville is now accepting payments online for tickets issued by officers of the Hartsville Police Department. This convenient service will make payments easier for those that wish to conduct business online rather than over the phone, by mail, or in person. The payment portal will accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover, or American Express cards. A small fee applies to each online payment. This service only applies to tickets that begin with

ticket number 201911 or 7102p, have Hartsville Police Department listed as the Agency/Troop vertically on the right side of the ticket, or have the trial court listed as Hartsville Municipal. The online payment portal may be conveniently found on the City of Hartsville’s website at hartsvillesc.gov/ government/municipal-court. The City of Hartsville is excited to make this process more convenient for individuals wishing to pay their fines online.
