A first time for everything Since having moved to South Carolina I have experienced my share of “firsts”. These “firsts” range from new restaurants, new words, and overall new experiences. I wanted to talk about some of these experiences that I have had. Some were good, some were great, and some are things I probably will not try again. The first “first” I experienced by coming to South Carolina was the trip itself. This was my first time driving for more than five hours in a car. It was also my first time going through as many states as I did to get here. The trip consisted of nearly 13 hours on the road through four different states; Penn-

Philip Maenza Editor

sylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and then finally South Carolina. In hindsight the trip probably would have not been as bad if not for my cat getting motion sick for the whole ride. Thirteen plus hours on the road is hard enough, but it’s even worse when you have a grumpy, confused, and car sick kitty. This is one such first that I would not like to experience again. I think in the future that air travel will

be my preferred mode of transportation. Another “first” that I had was going to the beach. I never had the opportunity to go to the beach before I moved to South Carolina. For many of you I am sure this sounds bizarre, but sadly it’s true. This was one of my “firsts” that I would definitely try again and again. I enjoyed the sun, the sand, and of course the water. I now understand why everyone up North is always raving about their week vacations to the beach. It does make me wonder with the beach only an hour away from Florence, how is everyone not there every day? Well, maybe in time the novelty will wear off,

but for now I certainly am appreciative of the close proximity of the beach. I think I am slowly beginning to pick up a slight accent from my past few months here in Florence; at least that’s what my mother tells me. On a positive note, I think I have finally mastered the appropriate use of “ya’ll”. I have a question. If you were to go to a grocery store what would you put all your groceries in? A buggy, of course! That was a first for me! I had never heard that word used before to describe a shopping cart. There are many other words that have been pronounced differently that made me take a second and think of the

strange nuance of language and regional pronunciations. A final “first” for me, which by far has been my favorite, is all the first times at different restaurants. The first time I had Chick-fil-A was when I moved down here. Let me tell you, it was a religious experience. In fact, there are a lot of restaurants I have enjoyed as some of my “firsts” such as Cook Out, Hardee’s, and Zaxby’s. By far some of my other favorite places have been the local diners in the area. The family setting and homemade style food is an area where the North is seriously lacking. I have a new appreciation and love of sweet tea, but that was not the case

when I first moved down here. The first time I had sweet tea, I am not going to lie, it was a little too sweet. I actually poured some of it out and added a little bit of water. The look on the faces of the table next to me let me know right away that I committed the eighth cardinal sin. I have grown to love all the new experiences that are put before me. I liked to treat each new “first” as a fun challenge and a way to grow myself as a person. What are some other “firsts” I need to experience now that I live in South Carolina? Let me know!

America is in a dilemma, and South Carolina is no exception. The growing economy is out pacing the ability to supply skilled employees needed to man the rapidly growing economic machine. Nowhere is this more evident than in the welding industry. The rapidly growing economy, combined with the everincreasing retirement of the “Baby Boomers,” is leaving a shortage of qualified and skilled welders to help repair and rebuild our crumbling infrastructure; maintain our ever-growing power, natural gas, and petrochemical industries, and fill the void in our shipbuilding industry. Power companies, using nuclear energy, fossil fuel, and hydro, are constantly competing for pipe welders and fitters from an evershrinking pool of trained, qualified workers. Every 16–18 months, nuclear power sites must shut down, to replace

nuclear rods. During these outage periods, pipewelders and pipefitters visit the sites to make necessary repairs. Florence-Darlington Technical College offers a number of programs to support power industry workforce demands, beginning with the Construction/Pre-pipe welding program, which prepares students for lucrative and rewarding pipewelding careers. The Construction PrePipewelding program teaches students both stick and TIG welding, and students who successfully pass an assessment at the end of the class are eligible to enter into the college’s Pipewelding program, considered the “Masters degree of welding.” No prior welding experience is needed to enter the Construction Pre-Pipewelding program. The entire Construction Pre-Pipewelding and Pipewelding courses can be com-

pleted in approximately six to seven months, a much faster rate to good employment than the typical degree-seeking route. Pipewelders in the nuclear industry have particularly bright prospects for wages, earning anywhere from $25 to $40 per hour, in addition to a daily $100 to $120 per diem payment, which is tax free, provided the individual does not work greater than 364 days per year. FDTC will offer the Construction Pre-Pipewelding class each month the remainder of this year, through November. Summer class start dates for the course are June 4, July 9 and August 6, and scholarships may be available. For more information, or to register for a Construction Pre-Pipewelding course, contact Lou Ann Dayton at 843-413-2720 or LouAnn.

Police Department to participate in the Buckle Up South Carolina Campaign

The Hartsville Police Department will be participating in the annual Buckle Up South Carolina Campaign. HPD wants our citizens and visitors to be safe, so expect to see an increase in enforcement and education during this time. If you would like to know updated information about new safety belt requirements and guidelines, please visit Did you know? “South Carolina has a primary safety belt enforcement law. Under the primary law, a law enforcement officer has the authority to stop a driver if the officer has a clear and unobstructed view of a driver or occupant of a motor vehicle not wearing a safety belt or not secured in a child restraint system.” Safety Belt Facts: Safety belts are the single most effective safety device for preventing death and injury, estimated to have saved 12,584 lives among passenger vehicle occupants age 5 and older in the United States in 2013. If 90 percent of motorists on our nation’s roads buckled up, 1,600 additional fatalities and 22,000 additional

serious injuries could be prevented each year. In South Carolina alone, an estimated 108 additional lives and 1,006 additional serious injuries could be saved (a monetary savings of $247 million). Every hour, at least one person dies in this country because he or she didn’t buckle up. Failure to use a seat belt contributes to more fatalities than any other single traffic-related behavior. Research has found that proper use of lap/shoulder belts reduces the risk of fatal injury to front seat passenger car occupants by 45 percent and the risk of moderate-tocritical injury by 50 percent (for occupants of light trucks, 60 and 65 percent respectively). To get the most benefit out of your safety belt, you should wear it low over the pelvis with the bottom edge touching the tops of the thighs. The shoulder belt should be worn over the shoulder and across the chest, not under the arm and over the abdomen. Make certain that the shoulder belt is not worn so loosely that it slides off the shoulder. Preg-

nant women should wear the lap belt below the abdomen and the shoulder belt above the belly. Even if your car has airbags, always wear you safety belt. Airbags are supplemental restraint systems designed to work with safety belts, not in place of them. They help protect adults in a frontal crash, but they do not provide protection in side and rear impact crashes or in rollovers. Fear of entrapment during vehicle fire or submersion is not a valid reason for not wearing seat belts. Only onehalf of one percent of all crashes ends in fire or submersion. Most crash fatalities result from the force of impact or from being thrown from the vehicle, not from becoming trapped inside the vehicle. Ejected occupants are four times as likely to be killed as those who remain inside the vehicle. Safety belts should be worn at all times, even on short trips close to home. Three out of four fatal crashes occur within 25 miles of the crash victim’s home. Most crashes causing death or injury occur at speeds below 40 miles per hour. Child Safety Seat Facts:

In South Carolina, during 2014, 11,877 children under age six were occupants of a vehicle involved in a traffic collision, an increase of 3.4 percent from 2013; 11 of those children were killed. Only 7 of the 11 children were in a child safety seat. Child safety seats, if used correctly in passenger cars, reduce the risk of death by

71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers. In light trucks, the corresponding reductions are 58 percent a nd 59 percent, respectively. Only about 15 percent of people in South Carolina use child restrains properly, however. Observations conducted in 2012 showed that if a driver is wearing a seat belt,

91 percent of the time toddlers will also be restrained. If the driver is not wearing a seat belt, however, only 68 percent of the time will toddlers be restrained. For more information about the Hartsville Police Department’s programs, follow the department at @HartsvillePD on Facebook or visit

Coker College Enactus third in the nation

Coker College Enactus was named third in the nation at the Enactus United States National Exposition held May 20-22 in Kansas City, Missouri. There are 440 Enactus teams that compete in regional competitions across the country. The top 100 go on to compete at the National Exposition and the final four teams present in front of more than 1,000 people. Andy Burkemper, assistant professor of business administration and Coker Enactus co-advisor, says, “Our Coker students are incredible. They have such a passion for taking on big issues and major challenges that people encounter around the world. I am so impressed by their creativity, tenacity, and ability to solve problems with their entrepreneurial mindsets. I can’t even describe how well our students have represented Hartsville and all of South Carolina during this year’s competition.” Enactus is an international organization that connects student, academic and business leaders through entre-

preneurial-based projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities. Guided by academic advisors and business experts, the student leaders of Enactus create and implement community empowerment projects around the globe. Coker is one of 440 active Enactus teams in the United States and currently has 42 participating students. The national competition gives teams the chance to represent the collective impact of their community outreach and life-changing outcomes. Projects are evaluated on how successful they are at using entrepreneurial concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living for those in need. “I am so grateful and proud of the impact that my teammates are having on people’s lives in Hartsville and around the world,” says Henrik Hellbe (‘18), Coker Enactus Executive Council Member and Presentation Team Member. “Being named third in the nation is a

wonderful confirmation of how we are empowering others and improving lives in a sustainable way. I can’t wait to see how the team continues to elevate and expand our projects in the near future.” During this academic year, Coker College Enactus was involved with a variety of projects: Aquaponics in Myanmar, a sustainable ecosystem where fish and plants are grown together in one environment, has meant improved food security and helped raise much-needed funds for a local non-profit center. Clean Water in Myanmar has provided five gallons of clean water every day to 70 families, improving 350 lives. Women’s Empowerment in Myanmar consists of installing a local business for producing low-cost sanitary napkins, which will reduce the risk of illness, create a new business, empower women with consistent income, and help remove the shame women of the country have surrounding their monthly menstrual cycles.

Rent-a-Fridge allows Coker students to rent a mini-fridge during the academic year, providing a more affordable and convenient option for students as well as recurring revenues to support ongoing Enactus projects. Kids Can partners with Carolina’s Kids, a local nonprofit, to enhance funding needs and nutritional values of the organization’s weekend food bag initiative for local children, as well as created and launched a food pantry at Hartsville High School. Summer Business Academy, sponsored by Wells Fargo, jump-starts high schoolers’ college education by earning three credit hours at Coker College, completely free of charge for all participants. Ubuntu-Blox is a wooden press that turns recyclables into sturdy bricks that can then be used for construction purposes, including building houses. The six presenters for the national competition were Hannah Baird from Fort Mill, South Carolina, Lexi Baugh-

Francis Marion names Heart of the Pee Dee scholars Francis Marion University has named five South Carolina students as Heart of the Pee Dee Scholars for the coming academic year. The recipients will pay no tuition during their FMU career as long as they maintain at least 3.0 grade point average. The Heart of the Pee Dee Scholarship is a long-standing program at FMU and a significant part of the University’s commitment to providing a superlative education to students from the Pee Dee. Deserving recipients are

selected each year by area guidance counselors who attend become a part of the program by attending the annual fall guidance counselor breakfast hosted by FMU. The students are individuals who counselors believe might not attend college without the Heart of the Pee Dee assistance. This year’s recipients were Samuel Georgia of Latta, Briana Wheeler of Lake View, Sabrina Stanley of Hartsville, Fantasia Toney of Hartsville and MyKenna Blankenship of Darlington.

SC ranks No. 9 in national review of state transparency websites State Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom’s S.C. Fiscal Transparency Website ranks No. 9 nationally in a new report evaluating the quality and user-friendliness of all 50 states’ transparency websites. South Carolina received a “B+” – earning 87 points – in a report issued by two nonprofit good-government advocacy organizations, U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) and Frontier Group. The report lauds South Carolina as an “advancing state” in the field of government financial transparency available online, noting that the Palmetto State employs best practices with a variety of its website features. In one example, the evaluation included an unannounced search for six specific expenditures. South

Carolina is one of only three states whose website “proved comprehensive by hosting all six of the test expenditures in an easily accessible format in the online checkbook for fiscal year 2017,” the report says. It also notes that: South Carolina is one of only six states that “post a citizen-accessible financial report on their website,” referring to South Carolina’s 2017 Popular Annual Financial Report http://www. F Y 1 7 PA F R _ w i t h C o v e rPages2.pdf prepared by Eckstrom’s office. The number of openrecords requests declined significantly after Eckstrom launched the Palmetto State’s transparency website in 2008. That noteworthy decline continues, with the

site providing a wealth of spending detail and other financial information available to anyone online, thus rendering many requests for information no longer necessary. South Carolina is among a handful of states that “created and update their websites with funds from their existing budgets.” “Some states have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on their transparency websites,” Eckstrom says, “but we’ve always used existing internal resources for our site to save taxpayers money. This report proves that it’s not necessary to spend lots of money on a high-priced website to provide high-quality information to the public.” Eckstrom’s staff is working to achieve an “A” for the Palmetto State in the 2019

evaluation. “We could make an ‘A’ this coming year if we receive credit for new information we’ve recently added that provides details on financial incentives the state awards to attract film productions in South Carolina,” he says. Eckstrom has pioneered transparency in South Carolina since launching his office’s site in 2008. He credits the teamwork and dedication of his staff, which built and maintains the site, for making it one of the best in the nation. “A lot of work goes into keeping the site up to date and constantly improving it with information that’s not just new but that’s also useful to the public,” he says. “My staff tackles that challenge head on.” The report ranking South Carolina No. 9 in transparency is on the PIRG web-

Beware of lifestyle creep “Lifestyle creep” is an unusual phrase describing an all-too-common problem: the more money people earn, the more money they tend to spend. Frequently, the newly affluent are the most susceptible. As people establish themselves as doctors and lawyers, executives, and successful entrepreneurs, they see living well as a reward. Outstanding education, home, and business loans may not alter this viewpoint. Lifestyle creep can happen to successful individuals of any age. How do you guard against it? Keep one financial principle in mind: spend less than you make. If you get a promotion, if your business takes off, if you make partner, the additional income you receive can go toward

John R. Coble III Coble Wealth Management

your retirement savings, your investment accounts, or your debts. See a promotion, a bonus, or a raise as an opportunity to save more. Do you have a household budget? Then the amount of saving that the extra income comfortably permits will be clear. Even if you do not closely track your expenses, you can probably still save (and invest) to a greater degree without imperiling your current lifestyle. Avoid taking on new fixed expenses that may not lead

to positive outcomes. Shouldering a fixed mortgage payment as a condition of home ownership? Good potential outcome. Assuming an auto loan so you can drive a luxury SUV? Maybe not such a good idea. While the home may appreciate, the SUV will almost certainly not. Resist the temptation to rent a fancier apartment or home. Few things scream “lifestyle creep” like higher rent does. A pricier apartment may convey an impressive image to your friends and associates, but it will not make you wealthier. Keep the big goals in mind and fight off distractions. When you earn more, it is easy to act on your wants and buy things impulsively. Your typical day starts costing you more money. To prevent this subtle,

daily lifestyle creep, live your days the same way you always have – with the same kind of financial mindfulness. Watch out for new daily costs inspired by wants rather than needs. Live well, but not extravagantly. After years of law school or time toiling at startups, getting hired by the right firm and making that career leap can be exhilarating – but it should not be a gateway to runaway debt. According to the Federal Reserve’s latest Survey of Consumer Finances, the average American head of household aged 35-44 carries slightly more than $100,000 of non-housing debt. This is one area of life where you want to be below average.
