Father figures: figuring it out You know Father’s Day is fast approaching when the commercials for grills, tools, and cars all start airing a little more frequently. Father’s Day from the view of capitalism is all about getting the ‘right gift for dad’. Some argue that the right gift is something heartfelt while others argue for a more practical gift, such as power tools. Regardless of the gift that you decide, the day is ultimately a time to reflect on fathers and the impact they have had in our lives. The thing that the commercials don’t show you is that not every person has the same narrative when it comes to the subject of ‘fathers’. Some people didn’t have a father in their lives. Fathers come in all sorts of different forms such as teachers, neighbors, uncles, or in some cases fathers can come in the form of a mother. The truth is people can have multiple father figures in their lives that fill all

sorts of different roles. Personally there for been many people in my life who have been father figures to me other than my own biological father. During college I had a professor who was very much a father figure to me. His name was Professor Douglas Gaerte. He was the chair of the communication department and my academic advisor throughout my undergraduate career. I spent many afternoons in his office talking about politics, communication theories, and of course our mutually favorite TV series, AMC’s The Walking Dead. Gaerte showed such kindness and interest in my life. He provided me with advice about

both academics, friendships, and my future. I look up to him immensely as an educated person who lives truthfully, kindly, and purposefully. It was his influence in my life that has given me the confidence to start my master’s degree and pursue a career in journalism. Another father figure I have in my life was not even someone who was old enough to physically be my father. A friend of mine, named Kevin, had a very big impact on my life in a very fatherly way. Kevin was a friend from college and ultimately a roommate by my senior year. Kevin is an old soul. He often jokes about “being a 40 year old man trapped in a 20 something year old’s body”. As a result of his more ‘mature’ personality, he was often very fatherly to me in our friendship. Kevin helped me with my car issues, made sure I was taking my medicine and getting to sleep on time, and

always screened my friends to make sure they were “good influences” for me. This friendship allowed me to have a father-type figure in my life that has benefitted me greatly despite the closeness in age. Despite there being many different types of father figures out there, often the main focus of Father’s Day is biological fathers. Keeping this in mind I feel like it is important to talk about my father. First of all, we share the same name, which was always very stressful growing up. My father is a 5 foot tall Italian man with a mustache and a love for pasta and meatballs. He is a pastor and an avid NFL fan, specifically the Buffalo Bills despite their tendency to avoid winning games. Growing up my father and I never really got along.

As he learns to love and accept me and I him, we can hopefully have a stronger relationship in the future. That all being said, Happy Father’s Day to every father figures out there.

That’s not to say that we were hateful towards each other, we are just two very different people. Despite our indifference towards each other during my childhood he was always there doing his best to provide for me and my siblings. He was able to afford to send us to private school, we never worried where our next meal was going to come from, and he always made sure that Christmas and our birthdays were extra special. He would often go out of his way just to make sure we were happy. My relationship with my father has changed a lot over the years. Our sense of indifference has begun to disappear and we are actually becoming a lot closer. Over the years I know it hasn’t been easy on him, but I feel that we are both coming

social, and civic opportunities, as well as about its rich cultural history. Site visits included the Robinson Nuclear Plant, Kalmia Gardens at Coker College, Butler Heritage Center, and many others.

Duke Energy employees awarded Jordan, Jewel win Keep Darlington County Beautiful art contest for nuclear industry innovation Duke Energy employees from Robinson Nuclear Plant received a Top Innovative Practice (TIP) award for the development of a control room glasstop simulator during this year’s Nuclear Energy Assembly, hosted by the Nuclear Energy Institute in Atlanta, Georgia. The Nuclear Energy Institute is the nuclear energy industry’s policy organization. Nuclear operators regularly train on a nuclear plant’s control room simulator, which mirrors the actual control room exactly. With an upcoming upgrade to the Robinson plant, the team looked for an additional way to train operators so they would be ready for this plant upgrade. As a solution, a first-of-a-kind engineering project was designed that fully replicates the control room training simulator through digital glasstop panels, allowing operating crews to train well in advance of plant modifications. “Thanks to our talented, experienced and industryleading team, we have a vital tool for training employees on a platform that can be maintained and sustained effectively for years to come,” said Ernie Kapopoulos, site vice president of Robinson Nuclear Plant. “Innovations like the ones recently recognized by the industry help ensure nuclear power plants will continue to provide carbon-free, reliable electricity to customers for years to come,” added Kapopoulos. Duke Energy was one of 12 awardees recognized at the awards in Atlanta. The award-winning Robinson team includes Dilip Sun-

Keep Darlington County Beautiful announced recently the two winners of its annual art contest. Maggie Jordan of Hartsville High School earned first place in the event, and Hannah Jewel of Hartsville Middle School earned second place. Students who choose to participate in the contest must create works of art using Palmetto Pride’s colors of blue and green as well as the organization’s slogan of “Keep Darlington County clean in 2018.” The contest aims to promote the importance of not littering. This year’s contest generated hundreds of entries from 4K through 12th grade. The organization printed the artwork of Jordan and Jewel on official t-shirts. Both students also received gift cards, hand-delivered by Gary White and Renee Howle from Keep Darlington County Beautiful. Each year, Palmetto Pride funds the cost of gloves, vests, trash grabbers and trash bags when Keep Darlington County Beautiful participates in the Great American Cleanup throughout April, May and June.
