Florence Tennis Association unveils youth tennis program The Ron James Youth Tennis Program held its first on-court clinics for area children June 24 at the Dr. Eddie Floyd Florence Tennis Center. Certified tennis instructors led the children through an hour- Girls University students take part in a stacking drill. long regimen of warm-up drills, coordination exercises, and practice on forehands and backhands. The small group clinics moved quickly and everyone had a great time. The program’s first six-week session, which includes Tuesday and Thursday clinics through the end of July, will cover the basics of tennis strokes, singles play, and the rules and etiquette of the game. Thirty-nine students from Girls University and 19 from the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee, all of them newcomers to the sport of tennis, are enrolled in this first session, and organizers hope that most of them will continue after the school year begins and the program shifts to after-school clinics. They will be joined by youngsters from the City of Florence After-School Centers as soon as the City lifts COVID-19 restrictions on the use of buses.

Florence Little Theatre to open new season in September with ‘Glorious’ The curtain will rise again at the Florence Little Theatre in September. “Glorious,” the first of three productions for the coming year, will run from Sept. 10-18. “Glorious” is the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the worst singer in the world. The second show, Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” is scheduled to run Nov. 12-20. The third production will be Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” Its show dates are April 1-9, 2022. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Florence Little Theatre was forced to cancel its entire five-show season in 2020. “Glorious,” written by Peter Quilter, will be directed by Will Bynum and Larry Chewning. The production is being underwritten by Habitat 2000. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors 62 and over, and $15 for students and children. The show is recommended for ages 12 and over The show takes place in New York in the 1940s. The performer everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Known as ‘the first lady of the sliding scale’, she warbled and screeched her way through the evening. But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics. Instead, she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Based upon a true story, the play spins from Florence’s charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in this hilarious and heart-warming comedy.

Mosquitoes another threat of the season Summer has officially arrived. We’ve already seen the impact of the weather, in terms of both seasonal storms and a tropical system. But summer brings another unpleasant reality that is due renewed focus: mosquitoes. In recognition of National Mosquito Control Awareness Week (June 20-June 26), the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control released a list of tips to help prevent bites from mosquitoes. Fighting mosquitoes is important beyond the obvious fact that no one wants to be bothered by the blood-sucking insects. At least 61 different species of mosquitoes exist in South Carolina, but fortunately, not all of these bite people. Mosquito bites can not only cause itchy welts on the skin, but they can also cause serious health issues by spreading diseases. The most common diseases that could potentially be carried by mosquitoes in South Carolina include West Nile virus, eastern equine encephalitis virus, La Crosse encephalitis virus, Saint Louis encephalitis virus, and dog/cat heartworm. “As warm weather arrives and people encounter more mosquitoes, protecting yourself from bites becomes more important,” said Dr. Chris Evans, state public health entomologist with DHEC’s Bureau of Environmental Health Services. “DHEC’s surveillance program helps identify cases of West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne diseases in our state. Most mosquitoes are just a nuisance; however, we detect West Nile virus in mosquitoes in our state every year.” The American Mosquito Control Association recommends three “Ds” to keep mosquitoes away: • Drain: Empty out water containers at least once per week. • Dress: Wear long sleeves, long pants, and lightcolored, loose-fitting clothing. • Defend: Properly apply an EPA-registered product that contains a repellent such as catnip oil, citronella/citronella oil, DEET, IR 3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, picaridin, 2-undecanone, or wear permethrin-treated clothing. With all repellents, be sure to follow product label instructions. Local governments also play a key role in protecting residents through mosquito control and cleanup efforts that eliminate mosquito breeding habitats. Mosquitoes can lay eggs in as little as a bottle cap of water. Get rid of standing water that can regularly accumulate in buckets, flowerpots, grill covers, tires, trashcan lids, outdoor toys, and other yard decorations or debris. Pet and livestock owners should take steps to protect their animals. Last year, from June 24-Dec. 4, DHEC detected eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus in 17 horses in 10 counties, 13 of which occurred in the summer. Vaccines can be effective in protecting horses against EEE and West Nile. Pet and livestock owners should consult with their veterinarian. Despite being pro-active against mosquitoes, staying inside during the peak mosquito-biting times of dusk and dawn is the primary way people can reduce their chances of being bitten. And if you go outside during those hours, wearing long pants and long shirts (yes, even in the heat) is your best bet against the bite.

Basking in the sunshine of summer “Summer’s here and the time is right, for dancing in the street.” Written by Marvin Gaye, William “Mickey” Stevenson and Ivy Jo Hunter, Martha and the Vandellas made Motown magic in the summer of 1964 when they topped the charts with this timeless classic. “Dancing in the Streets” has been rerecorded by countless artists from nearly every genre. The list includes Brenda Lee, the Everly Brothers, Petula Clark, Little Richard, The Mamas and the Papas, The Kinks, David Bowie and Mick Jagger, The Grateful Dead, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Tim Curry, Van Halen, Black Oak Arkansas, The New Christy Minstrels, Gary Glitter, Phil Collins, and most recently in 2019 by an artist who goes by the name of Garou. What has given this great, up-tempo little ditty such incredible staying power? Because it speaks the truth – well, almost the truth. The truth is, summer is here and the time is right not just for dancing, but for ANYTHING! That’s right, my friends. Summer is the perfect time of year, and for more reasons than I could possibly count. If
Bob Sloan Editor
I had my way, the weather outside would be a sweltering, sizzling, sun-baked 90plus degrees year-round. I know there are many out there cheering the hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer right along with me, but I also know there are quite a few others who would beg to differ. They’d rather have the fall breezes, winter chills or, spring showers. Well, they are all wrong. As far as seasons go, summer is the undisputed G.O.A.T. I have compiled a very short list, in no particular order, of a few of the things that make summer so great: The Beach: The sand and surf are great any time of year, but add the summer sun and you have reached Nirvana. T-Shirt, Shorts and Flip-Flops: Empty out that closet and donate everything other than these three items to Habitat or Goodwill.
Tan Lines: Enough said. Ice Cream: This frozen treat is always 100 times better in June, July and August. If you get more than one scoop you better eat it mighty quick. Summer Thunderstorms: “The devil’s beating his wife!” That’s what my stepdad always used to say. There’s something mesmerizing to me about feeling the sun and rain beat down on you at the same time while cracks of thunder can be heard in the distance. Grilling: Gas or charcoal, it doesn’t matter. Slap some burgers, chicken, or steak on the grill and you are positively golden. Everything tastes better cooked on open flames. Like ice cream, grilling is a year-round delight, but do it in the summer and you’re next level. The Music: Pop in those earbuds and jam! The sounds of summer are the best. Nearly every year there’s that one song, or possibly two, that carry you through the season. Imagine strolling down the boardwalk with your Raybans on, listening to Don Henley and The Eagles sing about a “Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.”
Watermelon: That beautiful green gourd is the perfect summer fruit. Any way you cut it, getting a good bite of crisp watermelon, letting the juice drip down your face, and then spitting out the seeds will bring the kid out in the best of us. Soft Tops: Having once been the owner of a Jeep Wrangler, I could preach on the glory of top-down driving for hours on end. Crank up the radio and let the wind blow those blues away. Longer Days: I don’t know about you, but I hate it when it’s November and at 5 p.m. it’s dark outside. I’d be a happy camper with 9 p.m. sunsets in December or January. This list could literally go on and on, but I’ll stop here. I leave you with these words from that sage of immense enlightenment, Chance the Rapper: “Do you remember, How when you were younger, All the summers lasted forever?” If only it were true.

A year of barriers and distortions The year 2020-2021 was a school year like no other. Plexiglass and masks put literal barriers between us all, making it harder than ever to connect. We had stickers on the benches in the cafeteria to remind kids not to get too close. Only half the kids could go to recess at a time. We had to re-think everything, but, somehow, we got it done. We kept our distance and learned that some connection was better than none. We adjusted to our new normal. We adapted and moved through the year. In October, one of my shy little girls hung back at the end of class. She asked me to take off my mask. I must have
Tammy Davis Guest columnist
looked confused, so she said it again, “Will you take your mask off? I want to see what you really look like.” We were six feet apart, so I slid my mask down and smiled at that dear sweet child. She nodded and ran on to lunch. I had made a bulletin board with photos of the students without masks, but I hadn’t thought to include photos of the teachers. I should have. That little girl needed what we all need – connection.
Sharing hugs and smiles feels natural. Elbow bumping and “smiling with our eyes” does not. For nine very long months, we did what we had to do to have face-to-face instruction. In order to make the class sizes smaller, we taught five classes instead of four. We housed half the kids in study hall, so the others could have PE. Assemblies and class meetings went virtual so rather than sending kids off to the auditorium we kept them in our rooms and logged on to Zoom. Despite the changes and challenges, we had an oddly wonderful year. This bizarre year reinforced what we already knew: some connection is
better than no connection at all. A co-worker picked the perfect word for this year: distorted. He perfectly described the way the plexiglass often distorted the view of the students. He joked about constantly asking a child to move to the left or to the right because of a reflection that blocked his view or because it looked like the child had three faces. The plexiglass kept us safe, but it was often like teaching in a fun house hall of mirrors. Why in the world did we do all this? Because we believed in the importance of connection, even a distorted one. See DAVIS, Page 5A
E D I TO R I A L “The truth shall
set you free” “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” These words are found in the Bible in Leviticus 25:10. These words also are found inscribed on the Liberty Bell, which is a symbol of liberty that we hold dear in America. Another symbol of liberty in America is the Statue of Liberty, which represents hope to all who love freedom. We celebrate our liberty every Fourth of July. This day is named Independence Day because on July 4th, 1776, America declared her independence from British rule. Liberty, or independence, is defined and understood by some to mean to be free to do whatever one pleases. We are only free to do what is right. For those who think they can do what they want to do; laws have
been instituted and established by God and ordained of God to limit this type of freedom. Laws are made for the well-being and welfare of all. When we choose to obey the law, it is good and we don’t have to fear the law. When we choose to disobey a just law there is a price and penalty to pay. Laws should apply justly to all, but sometimes this is not the case. As a great preacher once proclaimed, “There will be a payday someday.” The spiritual law of “sowing and reaping” is found in Galatians 6:7-8. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption (death), but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” This is a spiritual law with no exceptions. Man will reap the consequences of
what he chooses. Patrick Henry said, “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!” He was referring to the physical man. True liberty is found only in Christ Jesus. Joshua 24:15 reads, “Choose you this day whom you will serve; but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” The Declaration of Independence declares that governments are instituted among men to secure “certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The Cross of Christ is the symbol of freedom to those who are saved and are set free by His blood. “Know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” Carl Redding Florence

Asset allocation Many investment professionals believe that proper asset allocation is more important than selecting individual investments. In fact, according to a study by Ibbotson Associates, as much as 90% of an investor’s returns may be attributed to asset allocation. So what exactly is asset allocation? Put simply, asset allocation involves splitting an investment portfolio among asset classes, primarily stocks, bonds, and cash. These asset classes can be further broken down to encompass a number of different investments. Each asset type responds differently to shifts in the economy and financial markets. One type may be up while another is down. Therefore, a balanced portfolio may experience less fluctuation in times of volatility in times of volatility. Your asset allocation strategy will hinge on a number of factors, such as your age, time horizon, risk tolerance, and investment objectives. As such, you
John Brand Financial Advisor
should review and update it periodically. As you get closer to your goals or experience life changes, you will likely need to adjust your asset allocation accordingly. For assistance in developing an asset allocation strategy for your portfolio, contact a financial advisor today. Asset allocation does not ensure a profit and may not protect against loss in declining markets.

Teachers and students weren’t the only ones who had a disconnected, disjointed, distorted year. We were all in this mess together. No proms. Postponed weddings. No family reunions. No big Thanksgiving gatherings. No Easter egg hunts and beautiful church services. It feels like we are finally coming back. Hopefully I won’t have plexiglass or masks when I go back to school in August. I won’t need a bulletin board to know what my students look like.
When I separate kids, it will be because they are too loud, not because I’m worried about germs. We will gather together in the auditorium as a middle school, and it will feel good and right. We will send all the kids out to recess. They will play together, and they’ll connect. And, I’ll be thankful that there is nothing separating us from one another.

The Ron James Program, a member of the United States Tennis Association National Junior Tennis and Learning network, is designed to bring the health, fitness, and sportsmanship benefits of tennis into the lives of children who would not normally have access to the sport. It works closely with its partner organizations, the City of Florence Athletics and Sports Tourism Department, the Boys and Girls Clubs, Girls University, the City of Florence AfterSchool Program, and the Florence Tennis Center to integrate on-court activities and learning opportunities— with the goal of helping young people reach their personal objectives and live more rewarding lives. Funded by generous local donors and by grants from the South Carolina Tennis Patrons Foundation, the USTA Foundation, the USTA Southern Section, and the Florence Tennis Association, the program is currently managed by the FTA Board, which assures its sustainability and enables it to solicit donations as a non-profit organization. However, plans call for making the program a separate non-profit with its
own community-based Board of Directors within two years. “Our long-term strategy is simple: we intend to make this a self-supporting entity and a permanent part of the area tennis community,” said former FTA President Paul Pittman. “All of us in the FTA love the sport of tennis and we want to make it available to others who will enjoy it as much as we do.” Ernie James, another former FTA President, added
“We believe that bringing tennis into the lives of children without charge and with fun and teamwork included is one of the best things we can do for our community and for its future.” The program is named in honor of educator, coach, and tennis professional Ronald Avan James, who died unexpectedly in 2019. The FTA is an award-winning all-volunteer non-profit organization that works to grow the game of tennis in
the greater Florence area by conducting leagues, clinics, tournaments, and other activities and working with area governments and businesses to make certain that first-rate tennis facilities are available to the public. For additional information, contact FTA President Kevin Light by phone at (843) 6679804, or by email at email@example.com, or Past President Paul Pittman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
