This journey ends, a new one begins I’ve dreamed about retirement for many years, but now that the time has come, I’m a bundle of emotions. Monday was my last day with Swartz Media. For the first time since I was a teenager, I’m unemployed. That’s a little scary. It is also freeing and exciting to begin a new chapter in my life. Certainly my dreams of the retired life are idyllic. For

me that means traveling all over the world and living the life of leasure. It also means taking time to relax, breathe in fresh air, smell the roses, take walks on the beach and watch the setting sun. The

second part is certainly more attainable for me. By the time this paper hits the streets I will be in Louisville, KY, where my nephew is graduating with a master’s degree from Southern Seminary. While there, family members and I plan to enjoy some sights around this area. Before returning home, some of us will go on to visit The Ark in Williamstown, KY, and the Creation Museum near

Cincinnati, OH. A few more trips are planned for the summer, including a visit to New York City with a sister, her husband and daughter. I also plan to spend more time with my four granddaughters, Ana, 4, and Olivia, 9-months, who live in Florence and the twins, now 13, of Angier, NC. One of them thinks she wants to stay with me all summer, but I’m not sure she will.

retired life, I am also a little sad to leave the work I have enjoyed, co-workers I have loved, and the readers who have been so kind. I will surely miss what has to be one of the most fulfilling occupations. I must express my heartfelt gratitude to each and everyone who has been so gracious to me over the past 30 years. May God bless you and keep you in his hands!

A few more trips are planned for the fall. After that I’m open for whatever comes up. I do have a “to-do” list of things I want to do around my home, but I’m told by other retirees that I will have less time than when I worked. I also hope to continue writing, especially once the newness of retirement wears off. Though anticipating the

Hartsville Montessori announces new owner

Rousseau will also continue pursuing National Association for the Education of Young Children accreditation and ABC Quality certification on behalf of MDAH, as well as assist in developing curriculum and certifications/ trainings for faculty. Twenty-seven children (ages 6 weeks to 6 years) are now attending the school in three multi-aged class-

rooms, newly renovated and outfitted with hands-on learning materials that encourage exploration and experimentation emphasized in the Montessori method. Classrooms boast a low studentto-guide ratio, in which teachers are learning guides who foster non-competitive, creative learning environments where students can work and explore at their own pace. Montessori Day Academy of Hartsville is located at 103 Campus Drive inside St. Bartholomew Episcopal Church and is Hartsville’s only Montessori school. The school incorporates the time-

from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with an active and dynamic extended day program from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Summer enrollment also has a halfday option from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. For more information, visit the school website at www.montessorihartsville. com, email enrollment@ or call Heather Byrd at 843245-7320. Registration is open for summer semester, as well as the 2018-19 academic school year. Applications are available electronically on the website and available through email by request.

MDAH intentionally attracts and supports a diverse student and parent body. Before the start of the summer semester and in anticipation of the 2018-19 academic school year, families will have the opportunity to tour the school and talk with staff at an open house planned for May 30th.

Hartsville Middle, Hartsville High band programs awarded highest state honor The Hartsville Middle School and Hartsville High School band programs recently received the highest statewide honor available when the S.C. Band Directors Association (SCBDA) awarded both the Outstanding Performance Award. Kevin E. Horton, awards chairman for the SCBDA, congratulated the two bands on the accomplishment. “Both Hartsville High School and Hartsville Middle School have earned the points necessary to receive the SCBDA Outstanding Performance Award for the 2017-2018 school year,”



Horton wrote in a letter. “Your outstanding marching,

concert and individual student performances are a tes-

tament to the high-quality of teaching taking place in the band departments at each of your schools.” The SCBDA Outstanding Performance Award is the highest possible award given to a band program in the state of South Carolina. Points accumulate through participation and ratings earned at the state-sponsored events such as high school marching band championships, All-State and AllRegion Band, concert performance assessments and the Solo and Ensemble Festival.

Gifted and Talented students travel to Savannah More than 100 fifth-grade students who participate in the Darlington County School District’s (DCSD) Gifted and Talented program traveled to Savannah, Georgia, recently for an exciting opportunity to broaden their learning experiences. The annual Gifted and Talented field study took students on a dolphin “eco-cruise” as well as a trolley tour of the Historic District in Savannah. Marisa Johnson, coordinator of arts and innovative

programs in DCSD, said the


successful trip always proves invaluable for students. “It's one of the best tools that we can use to provide students with exposure to the real world,” Johnson said. “When students step

out of the classroom to learn, they get a chance to witness connections between what is happening at school and in everyday life.” Teacher and parent chaperones helped the 110 students make the trip, which also included a guided tour of the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force. “We had an awesome time, and we will continue to work to provide fresh and engaging learning opportunities for our students,” Johnson said. For more information about the Gifted and Talented program in DCSD, please call the Office of Arts and Innovative Programs at 843-398-2242.

Guardian ad Litem celebrates collaborative efforts during National Foster Care Month Not all children have a safe and happy upbringing. Some children need our protection because of abuse and neglect. There are currently more than 4,000 children in South Carolina who are in foster care. Foster parents become the temporary parental figures for children who are removed from their homes. Adults working with foster children include foster parents and volunteers with the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program. Volunteer GALs are trained to conduct independent investigations and make recommendations to the Family Court about what is in the child’s best interest.

Foster parents are a primary source of information about the well-being of the child. The collaboration between foster parents and volunteer GALs improves the quality of child advocacy, ensuring that children’s needs are met. Ultimately, this collaborative effort between foster parents and GAL volunteers can enhance the chances of a positive outcome and help children quickly find a safe and permanent home. Volunteer GALs are trained to become the voice of a child in Family Court proceedings. They listen to a child’s wishes and share those with the Family Court. The free, 30-hour volunteer GAL training teaches

Career specialists from around the Pee Dee and from the Santee region traveled to Hartsville to learn from Orlowski, who also serves as the president of the S.C. Career Development Professionals Division of the S.C. Association for Career and Technical Education. The instruction in Hartsville served as follow-up training to an intensive workshop in March, hosted by armed services representatives from Fort Jackson in Columbia. During that session, Dr. Khadeejah Timazee and Shantelle James with U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command at Fort Jackson provided guidance for understanding the ASVAB and its Career Exploration Program. “These workshops, in collaboration with Regional

s, w e n l a c o l r o u rce f o s p o t ’s r t s. a o e p r s d n a The a s e r featu

Small portions In the history of the Pentecostal church, there is a term that is used to refer to fasting as “turning down your plate”. Fasting is not practiced as much as it is needed in my opinion, nor is it done appropriately in correspondence with the scriptures. Many use fasting as a means to obtain material things instead of spiritual things. Fasting is not something done to appease God, but it is done to discipline your spirit man so that we can be more like Christ. We should never use fasting as a way to manipulate God to do something that we want Him to do and sadly, this is what so many have been taught. Many times instead of turning down our plates, we add to our plate. Recently I received several phone calls from people in distress, seeking guidance and advice. They shared their dilemmas and situations that slowly tried to creep up on my plate. I felt myself trying to take on and solve their issues instead of seeking God on their behalf. Then I had an epiphany! Why was I allowing other people’s

LESLIE B. WILLIAMSON issues to be served up on my plate and I didn’t have to eat it? I had made my plate a platter, slowly making room for everything that was not meant for me to consume. It was a choice that I had made. As a co-pastor and counselor, I have to listen to the cries and concerns of others, however I cannot afford to make them my own. Now that I had this revelation, I decided to make my portion sizes smaller and symbolically chose a small dessert plate to hold smaller portions. Something that would not fill me to the point that I am too full and have become miserable because I had overeaten. We need to learn how to

turn down our plates and not allow the situation of others to become our own. We find ourselves taking ownership of something that is not even meant for us simply because we don’t know how to spiritually say, “No thank you”. Now this doesn’t mean that we don’t care about people and their situations or don’t want to speak wisdom and give them Godly counsel. It

just means that we need not depend on our own emotional investment, but trust God to take care of the situation! Even when someone may ask us to do something for them, know when to say, “I don’t have room for one more thing on my plate right now.” You have to preserve enough of yourself. God is the only one who is

omnipresent and omnipotent. It is humanly impossible for us to be. So as you continue in your walk with Christ, understand that it is He who has all the answers and the power to make things better.

If you learn how to turn down your plate and eat in smaller portions, you will be more effective in your spiritual vocation. Be encouraged and keep moving! God loves you so much!

Pet of the Week This lovely two tone girl has love and energy to spare! A skilled leash walker who eagerly stepped out of her kennel, she nicely dialed down once in our front field and did a wonderful time greeting other dogs with a steady wagging tail. A great choice for a family with slightly older kids, she would be wonderful sharing her space with other dogs and possibly even cats. Alexa is a friendly, playful gal who would be perfect as a hiking or running companion! She is a 1-2 year old hound/lab mix and weighs 42 lbs.
