Skin cancer prevention With over 5 million cases diagnosed in the United States each year, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers and 85 percent of melanoma cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. By raising awareness of the dangers of unprotected exposure and encouraging sun-safe habits, we can change behaviors and save lives. With the incidence of this disease reaching epidemic levels, we can’t do this work alone. We need your help. May is Skin Can-

William Mingus Editor

cer Awareness Month and the perfect time to get involved. Melanoma - The most dangerous form of skin cancer, these cancerous growths develop when unrepaired DNA damage to skin cells (most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or tanning beds) triggers mutations (genetic defects) that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and

form malignant tumors. These tumors originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis. Melanomas often resemble moles; some develop from moles. The majority of melanomas are black or brown, but they can also be skin-colored, pink, red, purple, blue or white. Melanoma is caused mainly by intense, occasional UV exposure (frequently leading to sunburn), especially in those who are genetically predisposed to the disease. An estimated 192,310 cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in the U.S. in 2019. Of those, 95,830 cases will be in situ (noninva-

sive), confined to the epidermis (the top layer of skin), and 69,480 cases will be invasive, penetrating the epidermis into the skin’s second layer (the dermis). If melanoma is recognized and treated early, it is almost always curable, but if it is not, the cancer can advance and spread to other parts of the body, where it becomes hard to treat and can be fatal. While it is not the most common of the skin cancers, it causes the most deaths. An estimated 7,230 people will die of melanoma in 2019. Of those, 4,740 will be men and 2,490 will be women. Since its inception in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has always rec-

ommended using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher as one important part of a complete sun protection regimen. Sunscreen alone is not enough, however. Here are some other tips to protect your skin. • Seek the shade, especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. • Don’t get sunburned. • Avoid tanning, and never use UV tanning beds. • Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses. • Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resis-

tant, broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating. • Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months. • Examine your skin headto-toe every month. • See a dermatologist at least once a year for a professional skin exam. With the summer coming, be cautious about your time in the sun.

Darlington Raceway to host American Blood Drive event on May 21 Another great tradition returns to Darlington Raceway, for the first time since 2015, as the track will partner with the South Carolina Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross to host a blood drive event on Tuesday, May 21 from 2 p.m.–7 p.m. From 2005-2015, the track hosted an annual blood drive event which experienced tremendous success by collecting thousands of units of blood. Each donated unit can potentially save the lives of up to three recipients. “This is a community event we hosted for 10 years and we are pleased to bring

it back in 2019,” Darlington Raceway President Kerry Tharp said. “It’s an important initiative for our track and the American Red Cross is a tremendous community partner. We hope donors will come out and donate blood to support this event. Blood donations help patients who undergo surgeries, have chronic illness, traumatic injuries or cancer treatment. By rolling up a sleeve, you can help a loved one or neighbor in the South Carolina community and beyond.” For each donation, fans will receive the following: • Behind-the-scenes look at the Lady in Black, includ-

ing access to the Walk of Champions • Opportunity to take a pace car ride around the Darlington oval • Free admission to the track’s museum, which can be redeemed up to a week after the blood drive. The museum is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. • $5 Amazon gift card (*gift cards will be delivered via email within 14-30 days post-donation. Donor must have a valid email address on file with the Red Cross) The blood drive, which will take place from 2 p.m –7 p.m. on May 21, is now accepting appointments. To reserve your donation time,

go to www.redcrossblood. org, click on the Make an Appointment link and enter the sponsor code: DARLINGTONRACEWAY or call 1-800-REDCROSS. Appointments are encouraged in advance. Since 2005, Darlington Raceway’s blood drives collected over 2,000 units of blood for the South Carolina Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross, potentially saving the lives of over 6,000 people in our local community. The American Red Cross South Carolina Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to approximately 40 hospitals. More than 350

blood and platelet donations are needed every day to support patient needs. Accident victims as well as patients with cancer, sickle cell disease, blood disorders and other illnesses receive lifesaving transfusions every day. There is no substitute for blood and volunteer donors are the only source. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Platelets can be given safely every two weeks, up to 24 times a year. Most healthy people age 17 and older, 16 with parental consent, who weigh at least 110 pounds, are eligible to donate blood and platelets. Donors who are 18 and younger must

also meet specific height and weight requirements. Darlington Raceway’s award-winning throwback campaign is The Official Throwback Weekend of NASCAR featuring the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500® on Sunday, Sept. 1, at 6 p.m. on NBCSN. The NASCAR XFINITY Series Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200 will race on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 4 p.m. on NBC. Tickets are on sale now by calling 866-459-7223 or visiting DarlingtonRaceway. com.

Coker continues efforts to make college education affordable, accessible On National College Decision Day (May 1), Coker announced it has lowered the credit cost for its online undergraduate degree students from $619 a credit hour to $425 a credit hour, a more than 30% reduction in online program tuition pricing, in a continued effort to make a college education more affordable, accessible, and convenient for the modern-day student. The price decrease will take place at the start of the 2019-2020 academic year. The price decrease affects all Coker students enrolled in the college’s entirely online undergraduate degree programs––B.S. in business management, B.S. in criminology, B.S. in psychology, and B.S. in sociology––and includes students enrolled in entirely online articulation agreements with Coker––Aiken Technical College, Horry-Georgetown Technical College, and Richmond Community College (Hamlet, N.C.). “The opportunity to complete a degree in a format that is accessible can make a tremendous difference for many students,” says Tracy Parkinson, vice-president for strategic partnerships and special assistant to the president of Coker College. “As we offer more options for students who would best benefit from an online program, we want to be sure that the program is also as accessible as we can make it from a cost standpoint.

Whether online or face to face, it's crucial to try to make the bachelor's degree a viable option for as many students as possible.” For working adults and/or digital natives, completing a degree online may be the most practical way to boost their careers. “Online learning is answering a longstanding problem in higher education,” says Coker President Dr. Robert Wyatt. “It provides flexibility, convenience, and accessibility for busy adults, and Coker’s unique approach to student and faculty collaboration and engagement make it a great option.” Coker has also taken steps to be a transferfriendly school by establishing bridge and articulation agreements with several community colleges in the Carolinas, giving associate degree graduates the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degree in just two years. Earlier this year, Coker was included in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online Programs rankings in the category of Best Online Bachelor’s Programs. One thing that makes Coker’s online programs unique is that all of Coker’s online

undergraduate students are assigned a student success coach. Their student success coach will help them tackle obstacles that might keep them from completing their degree, connecting students with the resources they need to be successful. They work directly with students to answer questions, provide clarity, walk them through confusing procedures, and foster a connection between the student and Coker’s digital community. The cost for Coker graduate degree programs and traditional undergraduate degree programs remains unchanged. Students in onsite bridge programs will see a slight increase in cost-percredit to accommodate the new tuition structure; however, financial aid options, including price-sensitive support like the South Carolina Tuition Grant, will continue to be available for these students and will be adjusted in eligible circumstances. Additionally, Coker College’s Annual Scholarship Fund awards over $10 million in scholarships each year, placing the net price of Coker’s private education on par with that of local public universities.

She said everyone had a great time and that the district is fortunate to find such strong community support for early childhood reading success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students worked hard to be successful in this program, and it was wonderful for the All In Foundation and Clemson University to recognize them,â&#x20AC;? Keels said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They saw how valuable reading is not only from their teachers but also from the perspective of other adults. It is critical that we motivate and prepare our students to be strong readers very early in their education.â&#x20AC;? St. Bartholomewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church in Hartsville helped make the trip possible for the Darlington County School District students through a monetary donation

The American Legion at 100

The American Legion was formed by combat troops of the American Expeditionary Forces in Paris, France, a century ago. Weary and homesick, these American Legion founders restlessly awaited passage back to the United States and a return to their civilian lives after World War One. As they waited, they had time to think about what they would do after discharge from service: support their wounded comrades, honor the fallen, care for the surviving spouses and orphans and protect the democracy they pledged their lives to defend. These troops envisioned a different kind of veterans association. It would be like none before it, nor any that would follow. The American Legion would be built on strengthening the nation – not serving themselves – through four primary pillars of volunteer work. The pillars are veterans, defense, youth and Americanism. The early American Legion fought for creation of the U.S. Veterans Bureau in 1921, the Veterans Administration in 1930 and the Department of Veterans Affairs in 1989. Empowered by its federal charter, signed into law on Sept. 16, 1919, The American Legion organized an army of expert service officers to provide free healthcare and benefits assistance to veterans and their families. The American Legion also found jobs for hundreds of thousands of veterans in the 1920s and fed entire communities during the Depression.

Post 53 Legionnaire members are pictured holding the Legion centennial flag during the March 2019 meeting. From left to right are: Mike Kirk, Mike Jackson, John Benjamin, Ron Fenner, Preston Gainey, Jim Ousley, Bruce LaDue, Phil Whittle, Red Rowzee, Bob Hart, Leroy Brown, Larry Stegner, Ken Lefew, Larry Lynch, and Furman Smith Large in number and staked to thousands of local communities worldwide, The American Legion family – which came to include an American Legion Women’s Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion – was uniquely positioned to positively impact tens of millions of lives. The American Legion would further strengthen the nation by its commitment to fitness, discipline and teamwork through a national youth baseball program, sponsorship of thousands of Junior ROTC programs, Boy Scouts units and Junior Shooting Sports teams. The American Legion fought for decades for “Universal Military Training” and out of that movement came the Reserve Forces Act of 1955 – establishing the modern Reserve component of the U.S. military and a more

effective National Guard, which have proven so vital to American strength, especially in the War on Terrorism. The American Legion Legionnaires have also proven uniquely well-suited to handle life-threatening catastrophes – fires, floods, tornados, mine disasters, superstorms and even a terrorist attack. In 1927 and 1937, two of the most devastating floods in U.S. history destroyed homes and farms,

claimed hundreds of lives and left thousands homeless. The American Legion mobilized rescue crews, provided communications, found stranded families, fed and sheltered them. In time, deadly hurricanes Camille, Hugo, Katrina, Irma, Harvey, Florence and others have devastated countless homes and lives, and The American Legion has responded quickly with tens of millions of dollars in cash grants from its National

Donate A Boat

Emergency Fund. The purposes for which The American Legion has associated together over the last century have proven timeless. At this very moment, a new American Legion post is taking shape on the campus of the University of Illinois to support student veterans using their Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. Like thousands of other American Legion posts around the world, it is named in honor of a fallen wartime soldier. In this case it is National Guard Sergeant Shawna Morrison, whose life was taken by a roadside bomb in 2004 in Iraq. Shawna joins thousands of others who made the ultimate sacrifice from every war era and are now enshrined by The American Legion. To preserve the memories and incidents of our nation’s associations in the great wars, The American Legion has stood as the conscience of a grateful nation, through honor and remembrances of all who gave their lives or were taken prisoner of war so others might live in freedom.

Among the 10 lines of The American Legion’s mission statement – the Preamble to its Constitution – only one is even loosely dedicated to self-interest – “to consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.” The other nine lines speak to The American Legion’s broader purpose – to strengthen the nation. As new posts begin their journeys into The American Legion’s second century, they inspire a renewed vision that is equally timeless and built to serve generations of Americans yet to come.
