Upstate — South Carolina Edition 2013-14

The staff and management of Black Pages USA express warm thanks to everyone who helped make the 2013-14 Upstate Black Pages a success. We also utilize this page to emphatically convey special sincere thanks to our major corporate advertisers. The involvement of major corporations clearly indicates their willingness to support Black business development while marketing quality products and services. The reinvestment of a portion of revenues back into the local Black community makes good business sense for major corporations and is a smart investment. This investment is also indicative of a very strong commitment to the development of a more prosperous Upstate community in general, thereby promoting a better quality of life for everyone. Again, we thank you.

Thank You

Upstate — South Carolina Edition 2013-14

From The Publisher... RISK VS. REWARD Risk vs. Reward? The question that would be entrepreneurs ask themselves when exploring potential enterprises and business opportunities. Like any seasoned gambler, the questions of risk loom large……what are the risk associated with leaving the comforts a bi-weekly paycheck? Is there a market for my product or service? Can I make the venture successful for the long term? The risk vs. reward question grows larger once those businesses are established and the question centers on opportunities for growth. The rewards are immeasurable…….economic stability, job growth, wealth generation, etc. The question of Risk vs. Reward can also be extended to our communities. What are the risk of not supporting minority owned businesses in our communities vs. the rewards for doing such? The answer seems simple to us……. when we fail to reinvest or in some cases invest in businesses in key areas, those businesses failed, jobs were lost or were not created and then became dilapidated or created the wrong type of business activity. When we support the business in the publication or AA business in general, we do so to the reward of generations to come. We simply must bear this in mind………when we don’t support these businesses and they fail, we have no one else to blame other than ourselves. We realized in 1990, the reward of promoting minority owned firms greatly outweighed any risk associated. Friends, Thank you for supporting the Upstate Black Pages. We thank God for his grace, mercy and favor! Please reward us by telling our advertisers that you found them in the Black Pages – they will appreciate and so will we! Thanks to so many of you, we’re rewarded daily, weekly, monthly and annually! ©Thomas Media Group, LLC — 2013-14 — All Rights Reserved

Select Health of South Carolina

Dean E. Jones Executive Director

Select Health of South Carolina operates the state’s oldest and largest Medicaid health plan, First Choice. Founded in 1995 by South Carolina native J. Michael Jernigan, the homegrown company provides access to quality health care for underserved families. Select Health’s mission is to help people get care, stay well and build healthy communities. The team of more than 315 associates at Select Health supports the mission through their daily work. In the Upstate, Marguerite Nivens takes serving her community very seriously. Marguerite is a community events coordinator at Select Health. Since joining the team in 2006, she has helped others learn about the First Choice health plan and the services it provides by organizing and participating in health events in communities with the greatest need. Although Marguerite lives in Simpsonville, SC, her job takes her all over the Upstate. A typical day includes reaching out to various community partners to plan and coordinate health- related events designed to improve people’s health and overall quality of life. Her goal is to empower community members with health education and links to community resources available to help them. Marguerite answers questions about the First Choice health plan and encourages people to make healthy lifestyle choices. “I love the fact that Select Health takes a proactive role to ensure our members’ health and wellness, such as making phone calls to remind parents about their children’s immunizations and well- child check-ups,” said Marguerite. “This helps children develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime. To hear members say they ‘have never had a health plan care as much as First Choice’ is very rewarding to me.” Marguerite was born in Asheville, NC, in Buncombe County. She graduated from West Charlotte High School in Charlotte, NC, and attended UNC Chapel Hill, in Chapel Hill, NC. She is married with two sons, and enjoys cooking and traveling.

Dean received his B. S. Degree in Social Sciences from Elon University, Elon, N.C.

Primerica is committed to taking Wall Street to Main Street by helping middle class families obtain financial independence. “We strive to educate families on the fact that it doesn’t take a huge amount of money to begin an investment account. It is a family responsibility to adequately protect your loved ones in the event of a premature death especially in today’s society”. Losing a family member is always difficult but when the family is left adequately protected and can “carry on” financially, it makes a huge difference. “Building our Primerica business has been one of the greatest aspects of our lives”. Although Entrepreneurship comes with responsibility, it has allowed the Watt’s the freedom to travel, adequately care for aging parents as needed and help so many others begin to live their goals and dreams. The Watts are excited about their business plan which includes a tremendous expansion and development of additional successful leaders. Primerica is a Main Street Company for Main Street North America. Our mission is to help families earn more income and become properly protected, debt free and financially independent.

Regina Lewis University of South Carolina here was never a question as to whether Regina Lewis would go to college.

T

It just happened sooner than anyone might have expected. Lewis entered first grade at age four and in 1980 was a University of South Carolina freshman at age 15. “The agreement was that I would live at home, so Mom dropped me off at campus and picked me up every day for the first year,” Lewis said. With a bachelor’s degree in psychology at age 19, Lewis continued her studies at the University of Maryland law school in Baltimore. After graduation she landed a job at a large law firm. “And I did not enjoy it; it was not for me,” she said.

The practice is strong, and Lewis looks back with satisfaction on the different pathways she chose in her legal career.

A year later, she found her joy — and took nearly a 50 percent pay cut — when she went to work at the House of Ruth, a nonprofit group that assists victims of domestic violence. Lewis later returned to South Carolina and made partner at a prominent firm, then opened an all-female firm, Gaffney Lewis & Edwards LLC, in Columbia, focusing on corporate defense.

W illis H. Cr osby, Jr., Ed.D., CCAM SHARE r. Willis H. Crosby, Jr., the oldest child of gospel legend Willis H. Crosby and Alwillie Hardy Crosby, was born on July 31, 1941 in Anderson South Carolina. During his boyhood on an Anderson County farm, Dr. Willis H. Crosby Jr. knew little of poverty.

D

“Oh we were poor kids - but we didn’t really know that we were poor until much later only because we felt so loved,” he notes, recalling an upbringing short on material possessions but long on family values. What’s more, his parents passed along three things that money cannot buy: a love of learning, a strong work ethic, and an unwavering adherence to the Golden Rule. “My mother and father gave us everything we needed to become successful.”

Crosby believes that most people want to be self-sufficient but many lack the resources, both internal and external, to do it on their own. Through SHARE, many of these low-income individuals and families are given the opportunity to help themselves. In 1999, the National Head Start Association recognized SHARE Head Start Program as one of the first ten Head Start Programs in the nation designated as National Head Start Program of Excellence. SHARE Head Start was recertified as a National Head Start Program of Excellence, in 2002, 2005 and 2008. In 2009, Governor Mark Sanford designated SHARE Head Start to represent South Carolina in the National Center of Excellence competition. Under Dr. Crosby’s nationally recognized leadership, SHARE generates over $75 million per year to the local economy in terms of goods purchased, jobs generated and taxes paid. The National Community Action Partnership, America’s largest anti-poverty network, awarded SHARE the inaugural Award for Excellence in Community Action in August of 2003. SHARE was selected as a National Head Start Association Outstanding Head Start Grantee for 2005 due to its success in areas of program management and service to children and families. He is married to Dr. Margaree Seawright Crosby, Professor of Education Emerita at Clemson University and President/CoOwner of the WILLMAR Group.

Benson and Melody Watt Primerica Financial Ser vices enson I. Watt, III, Senior Vice President with Primerica Financial Services, the largest independent financial services marketing company in North America has been providing financial services to clients in South and North Carolina for over 20 years.

B

In 1996, the Watt’s began their business in the upstate with the primary goal of correcting an injustice that was plaguing the African American community. African American’s were “targeted” and encouraged to purchase small burial policies with the sole purpose of burial only. There was purposely no planning involved to cover household expenses in the event of the household bread winner’s death. This lack of planning and education has had a devastating effect on past generations and continues in today’s society. Benson and Melody have dedicated their lives to helping right this wrong. They believe that it has been far too long that people of color and people of poverty have purchased life insurance without the proper education when it comes to income protection. As we fight to correct any injustice we must be certain that the ladder is against the right wall; and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7. A true weapon against poverty is financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Teaching families how to “take control” of their financial life and prepare a roadmap to financial freedom for generations to come is the Primerica mission. Passing a legacy of wealth to the next generation along with financial literacy is the most powerful way to advance the agenda of equality. One without the other is like standing still in a relay race. Moving toward to financial freedom with Primerica Financial Services !

Get Ready

A child’s primary identity comes from the parent. It’s only at ages 3, 4 and 5 that kids even begin to think about color. Black kids need to see themselves reflected in all we expose them to, especially books and dolls. Also be aware of some of your own attitudes about skin tone, hair texture and the like. Too often, Blacks unknowingly translate negative messages to children.

Children attend classes from 7:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The program implements the High/Scope Curriculum which is a nationally recognized curriculum framework appropriate for young children. In addition, the program utilized the Second Step and Growing Readers curricula.

The Growing Readers curriculum focuses on literacy development and experiences for preschool children. The lessons include alphabet recognition, phonological awareness, and critical thinking skills related to early literacy. Also included in the daily classroom activities are a nourishing breakfast, lunch and snack. Children receive medical and dental screening and followup care as needed. Comprehensive services are also provided to children with special needs.

Don’t graduate with a dead-end diploma. by Greenville Technical College

It’s easy to assume that the credits you earn at one college will transfer to the next. But that’s not always the case. If the college you attend isn’t regionally accredited, the credits you complete may not be accepted elsewhere, and if you decide to continue your education at another institution, you may have to start over.

©Thomas Media Group, LLC — 2013-14 — All Rights Reserved

That’s what happened to Avery Martin. He started at a college in Charlotte. When he decided that he wanted to pursue another major somewhere else, he found that his credits wouldn’t transfer, so he had to start from scratch. He enrolled at Greenville Tech and transferred to USC Upstate, and since both colleges are regionally accredited, the transfer process was seamless the second time around. In December, he’ll reach his goal, completing a bachelor’s degree in education.

If the credits you earn at one college don’t transfer to the next, and you want to earn a bachelor’s degree, you’ll have to start over. There are several accrediting bodies, and they’re not all the same. Learn about regional accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the body that awards accreditation to Greenville Tech, Clemson, USC, College of Charleston, and most other wellknown four-year colleges in South Carolina. Take approved classes at Greenville Tech and you won’t finish with a dead-end diploma.

Greenville Tech has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges since 1968. This year, as the college seeks reaffirmation, one component of the process is a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), something designed to enhance the education offered. Greenville Tech’s QEP defines a new process that will match student interests and abilities with the right academic program. Called “Steer Your Career,” the plan is designed to ensure students make well-informed decisions.

Jones Leads Workforce Investment Board to Partner with Greenville Tech

Dean E. Jones The Greenville County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and Greenville Tech are both dedicated to the same cause: making a connection between qualified people and jobs. So it makes sense that the college and the WIB often work together. Dean Jones, executive director of Greenville County Workforce Investment Board, serves on Greenville Tech’s governing board. In that role, he has the opportunity to help the college fulfill its mission of driving personal and economic growth through learning.

www.blackpagessouth.com

The bottom line for both WIB and Greenville Tech is connecting people with opportunities. Working together, the two organizations can better meet the needs of people who need jobs and businesses that require a pipeline of qualified workers.

The two organizations partner in many ways. Jones was instrumental in working with college personnel to write a grant that was recently funded by the Department of Labor. The college will receive $14.1 million to lead a consortium of colleges across the state in developing programs focused on advanced manufacturing. The Greenville County Workforce Investment Board also works with Greenville Tech in administering the Workforce Investment Act program. People in need of career development services are referred to Greenville Tech for training, and WIA funds allow hundreds of students to attend the college each year.

Greenville Tech is a member of the board working on the National Fund for Workforce Solutions grant administered by the United Way of Greenville County. The college, the WIB, and other partners will work to promote sectorbased training that addresses skill shortages. Jones is part of the planning group for the Catalyst for Change initiative. Created by a group that also included the late Curtis Harkness and Pastor Curtis Johnson, the initiative will target southern Greenville County, seeking to develop a community based strategy that will focus on developing skill sets for youth and other workers within a targeted area as a means for attracting new business and industry.

Tips For Avoiding Foreclosure by Jil Littlejohn, President & CEO Urban League of The Upstate, Inc.

If you are unable to make your mortgage payment:

1. Don't ignore the problem. The further behind you become, the harder it will be to reinstate your loan and the more likely that you will lose your house.

2. Contact your lender as soon as you realize that you have a problem. Lenders do not want your house. They have options to help borrowers through difficult financial times.

3. Open and respond to all mail from your lender. The first notices you receive will offer good information about foreclosure prevention options that can help you weather financial problems. Later mail may include important notices of pending legal action. Your failure to open the mail will not be an excuse in foreclosure court.

4. Know your mortgage rights. Find your loan documents and read them so you know what your lender may do if you can't make your payments. Learn about the foreclosure laws and timeframes in your state (as every state is different) by contacting the State Government Housing Office.

6. Contact a HUD-approved housing counselor.

9. Avoid foreclosure prevention companies.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds free or very low-cost housing counseling nationwide. Housing counselors can help you understand the law and your options, organize your finances and represent you in negotiations with your lender, if you need this assistance. Find a HUD-approved housing counselor near you or call (800) 569-4287 or TTY (800) 8778339.

You don't need to pay fees for foreclosure prevention help--use that money to pay the mortgage instead. Many for-profit companies will contact you promising to negotiate with your lender. While these may be legitimate businesses, they will charge you a hefty fee (often two or three month's mortgage payment) for information and services your lender or a HUD-approved housing counselor will provide free if you contact them.

7. Prioritize your spending. After healthcare, keeping your house should be your first priority. Review your finances and see where you can cut spending in order to make your mortgage payment. Look for optional expenses-cable TV, memberships, entertainment--that you can eliminate. Delay payments on credit cards and other "unsecured" debt until you have paid your mortgage.

8. Use your assets. Do you have assets--a second car, jewelry, a whole life insurance policy--that you can sell for cash to help reinstate your loan? Can anyone in your household get an extra job to bring in additional income? Even if these efforts don't significantly increase your available cash or your income, they demonstrate to your lender that you are willing to make sacrifices to keep your home.

10. Don't lose your house to foreclosure recovery scams! If any firm claims they can stop your foreclosure immediately and if you sign a document appointing them to act on your behalf, you may well be signing over the title to your property and becoming a renter in your own home! Never sign a legal document without reading and understanding all the terms and getting professional advice from an attorney, a trusted real estate professional or a HUD-approved housing counselor.

5. Understand foreclosure prevention options. Valuable information about foreclosure prevention (also called loss mitigation) options can be found online. www.blackpagessouth.com

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them — work, family, health, friends, and spirit — and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the four other balls — family, health, friends, and spirit — are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.” — Brian Dyson, CEO, Coca Cola www.blackpagessouth.com

First Choice by Select Health of South Carolina We help people get care, stay well and build healthy communities.

First Choice by Select Health of South Carolina is the state’s oldest and largest Medicaid health plan. Select Health began offering First Choice in 1996. Through the years, Select Health has remained true to its mission: To help people get care, stay well and build healthy communities. Our focus on preventive care, education and personal empowerment leads First Choice members to improved health and a better overall quality of life. That’s why the First Choice health plan covers important well visits, preventive tests and screenings. In addition to standard Medicaid benefits, members of First Choice receive many expanded benefits and services like health education and nurse advice and support for free. They also have access to an extensive provider network of more than 8,000 primary care physicians and specialists in all of the state’s 46 counties.

www.blackpagessouth.com

Bright StartSM – This program is designed for pregnant women and their children. A dedicated team of nurse care managers, physicians and support staff connect First Choice members to helpful resources and services that assist women throughout their pregnancy and baby’s first year of life. We provide one-on-one care management for high-risk pregnancies. And if a baby is born prematurely and requires neonatal intensive care after birth, Bright Start staff continues to work with the families until the child’s first birthday, reminding parents of important well-child doctor’s visits and vaccination schedules. Staff also advise members and respond to any questions and concerns, especially when parents are learning to navigate the health care system with a new baby.

Children’s health – Because doctors need to see babies more frequently (recommended at 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months and 30 months), First Choice also covers these important milestone visits for its tiniest members, as well as annual

Below is a list of health and wellness offerings for First Choice members: •

In Control – When First Choice members with diabetes participate in the In Control program, they learn how to manage diabetes so they can live healthy, active lives. With the help of a Select Health nurse, they get needed care plus education about medicines, diet and testing supplies. Additionally, all First Choice members with diabetes receive a free glucose monitor.

Breathe Easy – This program teaches First Choice members of all ages about asthma and how to control it. They learn what triggers asthma as well as how to stop an attack, control symptoms and use medicines effectively. Breathe Easy is an excellent resource for parents of children with asthma or members who are diagnosed with the disease.

First Choice also offers a variety of specialized programs and support to address the specific needs of its members. Members enrolled in these care management programs receive tailored information to help them manage chronic illnesses and diseases. Select Health care managers and medical directors help to

support the health of First Choice members with complex medical needs through educational materials, advice and even reminders about doctor’s appointments and follow-ups.

well-child visits for members ages 3 through 19 years. And because children are active and accidents sometimes happen, First Choice members under 21 can get a second pair of replacement eyeglasses with no co-pay if their first pair is lost or damaged.

©Thomas Media Group, LLC — 2013-14 — All Rights Reserved

Women’s health – First Choice understands how busy the lives of South Carolina women can be, which is why we help them stay on top of their health. We send reminders about annual well-women exams, including important preventive screenings like a Pap smear, pelvic exam and breast exam. First Choice promotes mammograms to women who are considered high risk for breast cancer at age 35. We advise all other women to begin receiving mammograms at age 40. A mammogram is an x-ray used to locate small or indistinctly shaped breast lumps that may not be felt during a breast exam. Members also receive a complimentary copy of the First Choice Woman magazine, an annual publication designed exclusively for our female members. The magazine includes a variety of tips for women on-the-go, including healthy recipes, exercise tips, parenting advice and disease-specific information.

www.blackpagessouth.com

All First Choice members have access to: - A secure online member portal that contains their up-to-date health information - The First Choice Nurse Help Line, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week - Free language services available to all of its limited English proficiency members through the use of telephonic interpretation services and the availability of bilingual representatives.

First Choice is South Carolina’s hometown health plan. We strive to give our members access to quality health care while providing the encouragement and tools that make the journey to a healthy lifestyle easier and the end result empowering.

Keeping Healthy – 10 Tips from Fred Volkman, MD, Pediatrician and Chief Medical Officer at Select Health 1. Wash your hands often using soap and water. If you can’t wash your hands, hand sanitizer is a great back-up. 2. Sneeze and cough into your elbow rather than using your hands. This way you are not transferring germs when you touch doors or other common surfaces. 3. Do not share drinks or eat off of someone else’s plate. 4. Keep up-to-date with vaccines and preventive age-related health screenings. We all should visit our primary care physician once every year. 5. Establish a relationship with a primary care physician you like and trust. 6. Participate in physical activity that increases your heart rate for at least 20 minutes each day. 7. Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables to ensure you are getting recommended nutrients. At least half of our plates should contain fruits and vegetables at each meal. 8. Drink plenty of water – stay away from sugary sodas and fruit juices. 9. Build a network of positive people including family, friends and coworkers. 10. Laugh often – enjoy all of life’s blessings.

A Moment in Black History...

©Thomas Media Group, LLC — 2013-14 — All Rights Reserved

Contractors In 1890 Thorny Lafon (1810-93) was thought to be the first black millionaire. He was a New Orleans real estate speculator and moneylender. He was recognized as a community activist and philanthropist before the Civil War when he was still a young man. He was listed as a merchant in the New Orleans City Directory in 1842; in 1868 the directory listed him as a broker, and he was considered the city’s second leading black broker until 1870. As his wealth grew he gave freely to those less fortunate, including religious and anti-slavery causes, and supported the Lafon Orphan Boys’ Asylum and the Home for Aged Colored Men and Women, both of which he founded. The Thorny Lafon School, dedicated in 1898, made him the first black man and the second black person in New Orleans to have a school named for him. The Wall of Fame at the 1939-40 New York World’s Fair listed his name along with those of other blacks, Native Americans, and foreign-born Americans who were notable contributors to American process and culture. He lived frugally, and provided for his relatives, and friends, but he left the bulk of his estate to charity.

Since opening for business several years ago. I have tried many other advertising mediums and put thousands of dollars into flashy, but useless display ads all over the Upstate. Return on investment is now the only factor I consider when advertising. For this reason, the Black Pages is the source that I have utilized consistently and will continue to utilize. I can truly say that no other form of advertising has provided me with as much return on investment as the Black Pages. It has provided me with immediate results since day one. In the insurance business, the quantity of business is very important. However, the quality of business is the key to longevity and profitability, and that is exactly what I get from my BP customers. I estimate that 95% of my customers that I obtained from the Black Pages during my first years of operation are still with my agency today. These loyal customers have become the foundation on which my agency continues to grow. My BP customers understand the challenges that I face as a minority business owner, as well as, the logic and importance of recycling dollars in our communities. I also appreciate the professionalism and expertise that my sales associate has demonstrated over the last few years. His advice on ad size, content, and placement has helped my marketing program. I continue to utilize the BP as the foundation to my advertising program. Walter Jamison — Allstate

Horace Alexander, Jr. WLAS WLAS Smart Radio Network is a GLOBAL network with the ability to expand your advertising reach over the internet with a banner ad, a button ad or by sponsorship. WLAS can develop a marketing formula to give your business or organization expanded presence. WLAS has a holistic format, playing classic and today’s R&B, Gospel, Jazz, Hip-Hop and a variety of shows. WLAS target market covers both the I85 and I26 corridor—from Athens, Georgia to Charlotte, North Carolina and from Columbia, South Carolina to Asheville, North Carolina. WLAS Radio was started in 2010 by L.A. Sounds as an alternative for local artist seeking mass exposure. It was 2011 when WLAS partnered with a small radio station out of Charlotte, North Carolina to oversee operations of its Anderson, South Carolina station, powered by a small tower with the potential of 6,000 watts. What began as a partnership between a Charlotte radio station and a local studio has grown within a relatively short period of time to include a staff with more than fifty years of radio broadcasting experience. WLAS General Manager is Horace Alexander, Jr. a native of Cincinnati, Ohio who resides in Anderson, South Carolina. He is married to Tammy L. Alexander and they have six children and six grandchildren. Horace enlisted in the United States Marine Corps after graduating from T.L. Hanna in 1987 and was honorably discharged after completing his tour of duty. Early on in his life Horace always felt the need to help others; a call that lead him into full-time ministry as the pastor of New Beginning Outreach Baptist Church in Seneca, South Carolina. WLAS is an extension of his outreach ministry. Horace has worked in higher education for many years as an adjunct instructor and career counselor; his background, experience and research has lead him to the belief that people will be satisfied with work when they find the kind of employment they would accept for free and let their paycheck be a bonus rather than the motivation for working. If there were a phrase or common statement you would hear Rev. Horace Alexander, Jr. say, it would be “Pursue you passion because jobs come and go, but a career lasts a lifetime.”

be a mentor.

What Good Does It Do? Studies show that kids who are fortunate enough to have mentors are more likely to stay in school, achieve their goals, and avoid unsafe activities. According to one research study*, young people who meet regularly with their mentors are: • 46% Less likely to use illegal drugs • 27% Less likely to begin drink alchohol • 52% Less likely to skip school • 33% Less likely to hit someone

What You Can Do Together Many people would like to be mentors but dont know what mentors do. Just hanging out and talking with a child does a world of good.

Social Security Online Claims and Services: A Safe and Convenient Way To Do Business by: By Chris Jenkins, Public Affairs Specialist, Social Security Administration

According to a recent survey, Social Security’s online retirement benefit application once again ranked at the top of all Federal government websites in customer satisfaction. Millions of people have taken advantage of this by simply clicking www.socialsecurity.gov. Here are some of the services available online:

©Thomas Media Group, LLC — 2013-14 — All Rights Reserved

Apply for benefits and Medicare. You can apply for Social Security retirement, spouse, disability benefits, and Medicare over the Internet. If you are applying for disability benefits, you will need to complete the disability report, which is also available online. Disability appeals claims can be filed online too. After filing, you can check online for the status of the application. Documents will be signed electronically. Personalized Retirement Estimator. This tool allows you to get an immediate and personalized estimate of your potential Social Security retirement benefit. If the information you enter matches our records it is combined with other information, including your yearly earnings, to provide a quick and reliable online benefit estimate. The Retirement Estimator allows you to compare different retirement options by www.blackpagessouth.com

changing your “stop work” dates or expected earnings. To protect your privacy, only your benefit estimate is provided. Help with Medicare Extra Prescription Drug Cost. If you are eligible for Medicare and Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage), you may also be able to receive ‘extrahelp’ in paying for the monthly premium, deductibles, and copayment. This is available for people who have limited income and resources. Business Services Online (BSO). Registered users may request, activate and access various BSO services and functions such as verifying Social Security numbers and names of employees, sending W2 and W2c forms to Social Security and more. Social Security Statement Online. You can get your Social Security Statement online. It provides: Estimates of the retirement and disability benefits you may receive; A list of your lifetime earnings according to Social Security’s records; General information about Social Security for everyone; The opportunity to apply online for retirement and disability benefits; and A printable version of your Social Security Statement.

Black Pages

To get your Statement online, you must first create a ‘my Social Security’ account with us. Once you have an account, you can view your Social Security Statement at any time. To create an account, you must provide some personal information about yourself and give us answers to some questions that only you are likely to know. Next, you create a username and password that you will use to access your online account. This process protects you and keeps your personal Social Security information private. Also online you can find the nearest Social Security office, change your address, phone number, or direct deposit information, and much more. So whatever your business needs with Social Security maybe you can save a trip to the local office by checking out our website at www.socialsecurity.gov. Feel free to contact us at 1 (800) 7721213 between the hours of 7 am and 7 pm Monday through Friday for help and information.

WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council).

Assess the needs and objectives of departments regarding their supplier requirements and identify appropriate M/WBE suppliers Increase participation and bring awareness by creating and implementing programs, tools and events that market the value of supplier diversity

GHS Expectations GHS demands the best products and services at the lowest competitive price in order to pass those needs on to our patient base. Each company is measured against the same set of high expectations and standards regardless of size and/or classification.

Who can participate as an M/WBE? A minority or woman-owned business is a for-profit enterprise, regardless of size, physically located in the United States or its trust territories, which is owned, operated and controlled by minority group members. "Minority group members" are United States citizens who are Asian, Black, Hispanic, Women and Native American. Ownership by minority individuals means the business is at least 51% owned by such individuals or, in the case of a publicly-owned business, at least 51% of the stock is owned by one or more such individuals; further, the management and daily operations are controlled by those minority group members. The M/W/VBE should also be certified by an authorized organization such as the NMSDC (National Minority Supplier Development Council), CMSDC (Carolinas Minority Supplier Development Council) and/or

10 Tips for Preventing Back Pain by Absolute Medical Clinic 904-743-2222

1. Listen to Your Back- Pain is a warning sign. Your body is telling you that you have already or are about to cause damage. If what you are doing hurts then STOP. Do not try to push through the pain. 2. Drink Plenty of Water- Our bodies are comprised of approximately 70% water. Water keeps us pliable rather than stiff and rigid. Drinking water enhances the height of intervertebral disks, keeping them the healthy shock absorbers that they are. Water is necessary for nearly every bodily process so it is good to have in generous supply, try to drink half of your body weight in ounces per day.

5. Sleep Properly- Sleep in a comfortable position. On your side in the “fetal” position is usually the least stressful on your back. Sleeping on your front puts most stress on your back and neck and can lead to pain. Using a pillow at the right height to support your neck and between your knees is also important. 6. Avoid Long Periods of SittingSitting loads the spine and compresses the disks, leading to disc problems. If you sit for long periods of time, force yourself to get up from your seat as much as possible and move around. And gentlemen, take your wallet out of your back pocket before you have a seat. 7. Have a Six Pack- Of Abs! Your stomach muscles are the core of your fitness. Exercise and activity keep the muscles of the spine strong too. Include stretching in your fitness program to avoid stiffness which will add to back pain.

4. Lift correctly- You don’t have to lift something heavy in order to hurt your back. Picking up something light incorrectly is far more likely to hurt your back than picking up heavy objects correctly. When you pick up anything, no matter how heavy, get it as close to your body as possible and keep your back as straight as you can.

8. Pay Attention to Your PostureMaintaining good posture while you’re sitting and standing can be essential to preventing back pain. When you have good posture, the spine is properly aligned allowing muscles to relax.

10.

3. Maintain a Healthy Body Weight- Maintaining a healthy weight is generally an excellent way to prevent all kinds of diseases and discomforts. For the spine, it avoids compression and loading of the intervertebral disks, and prevents postural abnormalities.

9. Manage Stress effectively- The stresses in our daily lives affect our body by tensing muscles. Relieving stress can reduce the back pain that is caused by these tense muscles. Find your own way to relax on a daily basis whether it is massage therapy, acupuncture, or just a relaxing walk around the neighborhood.

Constipation:

©Thomas Media Group, LLC — 2013-14 — All Rights Reserved

By: Shanta’ Johnson Essential Cleansing Center

Constipation is defined as a condition where the fecal matter is so tightly packed together that bowel movements are infrequent and incomplete. Constipation causes much difficulty and straining and produces dry hardened feces. The accumulation of old hardened feces sticks to the walls of the colon, interfering with the proper function of absorbing the remaining nutrients. The environment inside the colon affects the whole body system through blood stream and cells. A build up of toxins and impurities in the colon slowly poisons the entire body, this is called autointoxication. A healthy bowel should experience a movement for every meal eaten, but when bowel movements occur less often than food intake, it is considered constipated. Since most Americans eat three meals a day, they should have 3 corresponding bowel movements. However, many people experience one or fewer bowel movements each day. The the typical American diet consist largely of processed foods, refined sugars and starches which wreaks havoc on the body. Such high-fat, high-sugar food lacks the fiber and essential fatty acids necessary for proper bowel maintenance and greatly attributes to constipation.

www.blackpagessouth.com

Although a poor diet is one of the more common causes of constipation, other contributing factors can include lack of exercise, especially (cardiovascular), the use of certain medications, changes in routine, lack of time and environmental influences. Cardiovascular exercise stimulates the flow of lymph throughout the body, which is necessary for healthy peristalsis. It has also been shown that exercise accelerates food transit time through the large intestine. A faster transit time means less time for water to be absorbed in the colon, resulting in looser stools that are more easily passed. Medications such as anti-depressants, antihistamines, cold, pain, high blood pressure and high cholesterol drugs; antacids that contain aluminum, diuretics and antibiotics may also cause constipation in a number of different ways. Such medications can decrease digestive enzyme activity, obstruct nerve impulses, relax intestinal muscles, which leads to a decrease in peristalsis and kill healthy intestinal flora, all of which can greatly increase the likelihood of constipation. U. S. Surveys recently indicated that Constipation is the most common digestive complaint, resulting in about 2

million annual visits to the doctor. However, most people treat themselves without seeking medical help. Approximately $725 million dollars are spent on laxatives yearly. Constipation is a very serious condition that in many cases, can lead to deteriorating health but many people accept occasional constipation a part of everyday life. This condition should be taken seriously because the environment inside the colon directly affects the overall general health of a person. Colon Hydrotherapy is not just for people looking for relief from constipation although it is very affective. It is for everyone who is interested in having a healthier more efficient body.
