OUT OF ALL THE SMART HOME technologies available on the market, smart lighting is one of the easiest to integrate into your home. Smart lighting can be controlled by voice command through your smartphone or a smart home hub (like Amazon Alexa), making them relatively easy to manage. They are also among the most affordable smart home devices, starting at about $10 per bulb. One of the most useful aspects of smart lighting is the ability to control the lighting while you’re away from home. If you leave for work and leave the lights on, you can easily turn them off with a few taps on a smartphone app. Consumers can schedule lighting to turn on or off at certain times of the day, depending on their preferences. For instance, turning off all the lights at home just before bedtime or scheduling the lights to turn on just before returning home from work. Many smart light bulbs have motiondetection technology that can sense if a person is in the room or nearby. This feature

SC   dialogue

Pay it forward have modernized communications in the region. Unfortunately, there remains limited access to dependable electricity in rural villages. So, while there are plenty of cell phones, charging the devices is difficult and expensive. However, one bright local teenager figured out how to turn a mattress into a mobile phone charging station. The mattress was equipped to absorb the sun’s abundant thermal energy during the day, provide power to the family’s phones and still serve its primary purpose at night. It’s an innovative technology he shared not only with his fellow villagers but also with surrounding villages. Rural communities in South Carolina are certainly blessed with many more resources than most African villages, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have our share of so-called “deserts.” Many cooperative members live in food deserts, where the nearest grocery store or supermarket is more than 10 miles away. This problem is exacerbated by overlapping transit deserts, where there is little access to transportation. Only a handful of our small towns have thriving local media outlets, like weekly newspapers or hometown radio stations, creating what some call news deserts. The term could be applied to a myriad of needs that burden many of our rural communities—health care, housing, education, infrastructure and much more. One resource we do not lack in South Carolina is young, innovative minds. Our state boasts three of the best public honors colleges in the nation. Students come here from all over the country to be a part of the elite programs at Clemson University, South Carolina State University and the University of South Carolina. They are joined in those classrooms by bright South Carolinians, some of whom have seen or even experienced firsthand the troubles that grip their hometown communities. Unfortunately, many of these students tend to take their intelligence and skills elsewhere once they graduate. The Charlottes, Atlantas and New Yorks are benefitting from our state’s top honors programs at the expense of the McCormicks, Barnwells and Ridgelands. That’s why The Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina has partnered with those three universities’ IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA, MOBILE PHONES

honors colleges in a new initiative called Pay it Forward. Beginning this academic year, honors college students will have the option to compete for cash prizes by solving distinct, reparable problems facing rural South Carolina. In lieu of writing a senior thesis or submitting a capstone project, participating students will select and research one of the dozens of rural challenges and propose a solution. A panel of judges representing the electric cooperatives will determine individual school winners and award them $1,000 prizes. The overall winner will receive a $5,000 prize. In addition, the winning projects will be featured in an upcoming edition of South Carolina Living magazine. We’re asking the students to address a particular problem in one of our cooperative-served communities and propose a solution that could be replicated across the state. A future architect from Pelion might figure out what to do about aging schools in Williamsburg. A young writer from Beaufort and an engineering student from Illinois may collaborate on improving economic development in Hopkins. Not only does this initiative create the possibility of improving rural health care or developing an educated workforce, but it also increases our chances of keeping some of these great young minds in South Carolina. I truly believe that if these students make such intellectual investments in our communities, they are more likely to stick around. By calling the program Pay it Forward, we’re recognizing that these honors students can use some of the advantages with which they are blessed for the benefit of many in the disadvantaged areas of our state. By challenging them with real, local problems and incentivizing them toward solutions, we’re investing in an intellectual infrastructure that can pay dividends for years to come. Innovative and community-focused thinking solved the problem of rural electrification more than 80 years ago. I’m hopeful it can do the same for the important issues facing our state today.

MAKES 12–16

1 store-bought pizza dough ½ cup pizza sauce, store-bought 1 cup sliced black olives and/or other favorite pizza toppings 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese Olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Separate dough into 12 pieces and roll out into ¼-inch-thick rounds— or roll out and cut into rounds using a 3-inch cookie cutter. Place onto sheet pan. Top each with about 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce followed by olives (and any of your other favorite pizza toppings) and cheese. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil. Bake until dough is golden brown, about 12–15 minutes (watch closely). Let cool slightly before serving. 10

15 baby red-skinned potatoes, washed and cut in half 2 tablespoons olive oil 6–8 slices crispy bacon, crumbled

3–4 scallions, white and green parts thinly sliced 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese Sour cream, optional

Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with olive oil. Place cut side down on a baking or cookie sheet. Bake until tender, about 25 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Using a small scoop or spoon, scoop out the center, and using a paring knife, cut a thin slice off the bottom so the potatoes will not roll around on the plate. Fill each potato with some of the crumbled bacon and scallions and top with cheese. Place back in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese, about 5 minutes. If desired, garnish with additional bacon, scallions and sour cream. Serve at room temperature.

Cliff Daley Owner and head chef at Daley’s Concessions, the family corn dog business that’s been feeding festival crowds for nearly 60 years. HOMETOWN: Columbia. JUST FOR KICKS: Daley earned an athletic scholarship to play soccer for the University of Alabama–Huntsville and tried out for the 1976 U.S. Olympic team. “If it hadn’t been for that scholarship, I’d have probably joined the service and gone into Vietnam.” FAVORITE FESTIVAL: The S.C. State Fair. Daley’s Concessions has been a part of the event for 50 years. “It’s like a big family reunion.” HIS GO-TO MEAL?: “It’s hard to beat a good hot dog, especially with homemade chili and onions and a little slaw.” CLAIM TO FAME:

SOUTH CAROLINA LIVING  |  OCTOBER 2021 | SCLIVING.COOP

It was the winter of 1975 and Cliff Daley faced a life-changing decision. He and his wife, Kim, had just married. She was a geologist, he an executive at a multinational corporation. But in January, his father, Zanelle, died of a heart attack. His mother, Dorothy, was caught in Alzheimer’s, in need of constant care. The couple considered the bright yellow concession trailer Cliff had helped his father build in 1962 and one where he still worked weekends, serving handdipped corn dogs. “We said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to commit to it or go on and get out,’ ” Daley recalls. “We committed.” The Daleys left their jobs, landed new fair contracts and invested in equipment. Today, three generations of Daleys operate the Daley’s Dogs trailers that are beloved fixtures at festivals throughout the Southeast. “This concession has held my family together. We’ve been able to grow as a family and work together,” Daley says. His children “grew up in these wagons. They learned people skills. They learned how to serve a good product and take care of customers.” Cliff is the “Betty Crocker” of the business, safeguarding the family recipe for the traditional batter while also experimenting with alternative flavors like the now-popular jalapeno corn dog. “We’ve done it all,” he says, citing the Elvis corn dog—banana-flavored batter and slathered in peanut butter—that won the Most Creative award at the North Georgia State Fair. The pandemic hit the business hard as fairs and festivals were canceled or postponed. “We were very fortunate to stay afloat,” Daley says, crediting the family’s religious faith, as well as a small business loan and generous friends, for seeing them through. Today, they’re stocking up for the 2021 S.C. State Fair (scstatefair.org), scheduled for Oct. 13–24. “One thing about COVID, we tried to find something good in it, and that was people helping people and our faith in the Lord,” Daley says. “Every time we prayed at night, there was hope.” —MICHAEL BANKS | PHOTO BY MILTON MORRIS


The best seats in the house Rock Hill’s Kounter restaurant writes a new chapter in S.C. civil rights history BY CELE & LYNN SELDON PHOTOS COURTESY OF KOUNTER

The common noun refers to a long, flat-topped fixture in a building, across which business is conducted. The verb means to act in opposition to something. And, yet, for the Rock Hill restaurant, Kounter, the word stands for both in the continuing quest for racial equality. Situated along Rock Hill’s Main Street, Kounter occupies the former McCrory’s Five & Dime, a local institution that opened in 1937, selling everything from shoes and clothing to housewares and penny candy, and complete with a popular lunch counter serving up hamburgers and ice cream sundaes. That counter became a historic icon of the 1960s civil rights movement on Jan. 31, 1961, when students from Rock Hill’s Friendship Junior College sat down and refused to leave until they were served.

Grow wild with native asters

OCTOBER IN THE GARDEN n While cutting back herbaceous perennials as the first frosts start nipping at their leaves, don’t be so quick to whack away at the plumes of ornamental grasses. These fluffy tufts can not only survive the coming chill to flaunt their special beauty in the winter garden, but they can also be used to accentuate indoor arrangements during the coldest months.

Jindai is a shorter cultivar of the six-foottall Tatarian aster from eastern Asia.

TIP OF THE MONTH Although not native to our shores, the Tatarian aster (Aster tartaricus), imported from eastern Asia, is certainly another fancy-flowering possibility for your fall garden. And it will be hard to miss because this impressive aster can reach up to six feet in height—that’s a biggie! For gardeners faint of heart or lacking in space to accommodate such a sizeable plant, the popular cultivar Jindai restrains itself to around three to four feet high, but what it lacks in stature, it makes up for with an impressive purple coat of autumn blooms on sturdy stems. Jindai is normally an easy find both online and at local garden shops.

Many asters save their regal shows for the arrival of autumn. ROYALTY IN THE GARDEN New England aster is one of the easiest native asters to find at local garden shops. Mature plants top out at five feet in height and reward gardeners with an explosion of starry purple blooms in fall.

that does best in well-draining sites. Although not as readily available at local garden shops as its New England kin, it is not hard to find online. Climbing aster (Symphyotrichum carolinianum). While typical asters are somewhat mounding in their growth habit, climbing aster is a rambler. Behaving like a vine, this pretty can stretch out to over eight feet long, making it a perfect candidate to doll up a bare trellis or clunky fence in the fall with sweeps of pleasing, pinkish-purple blossoms. In spite of it originating in the Southeast, climbing aster is not a usual offering on the web or at local nurseries, which is unfortunate, but I have found that haunting native plant sales at this time of year is a good way to find this fun plant.

n Bagworms been bugging your evergreen pride-and-joys such as cedars, arborvitaes or junipers? Insecticides are more effective when applied in the spring, but what can you do now? Simple—if you see any bagworm bags (which contain moth eggs) dangling on branches like ugly, brown, oblong Christmas ornaments, snip them off and toss away in a trash bag.

lighting up the landscape in flaming colors is seasonably enjoyable, I also temper such brightness with cooler hues in my garden. Purple is an excellent counter-color, and it is served up in heapin’ helpin’ portions with asters, many of which save their regal shows for the arrival of autumn. When it comes to asters, I tend to lean toward native selections showing off their finest flower exhibits in my garden. Need examples? Below are three pretty picks to consider for your autumn landscape. New England aster (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae). From big-box hardware store nursery centers to online garden shops, this is probably the easiest indigenous aster to find, and for good reason: It can stretch to about five feet high and wide while saluting the approaching autumn with an explosion of starry purple blooms. True to its tough native roots, New England aster is drought-tolerant and also deer-resistant. In addition, it is an early autumn favorite of lingering bees and butterflies. Plant breeders like it, too, and have created many cultivars, with the dwarf Purple Dome (two feet tall and wide) probably being one of the more popular selections. Aromatic aster (Symphyotrichum oblongifolium). Automatic in its appeal to gardeners, aromatic aster is as advertised with pleasantly scented leaves that serve as a solid green backdrop for a profusion of dazzling lavender flowers. Although usually short in stature—about three feet high and wide—this native aster makes up for it v­ isually with its bloom boom that starts in September and usually lasts until November. Aromatic aster is a sun lover

Drop the reins and grab your hoop BY JAN A. IGOE

read this, a pumpkin or two may be grinning from your porch, but deadlines come early in magazine land, so I’m writing this column as the 2021 Summer Olympics draw to a close. For two weeks, I was riveted. Five new sports made their debut for a total of 339 medal events comprised of popular sports, unpopular sports and sports inspired by psychedelic mushrooms. As mushroom sports go, the modern pentathlon wins the gold medal. The original Greek version featured running, jumping, spear hurling, discus throwing and the first known (or rumored) wardrobe ­malfunction. While sprinting down the stadium field, one athlete blew right out of his loincloth, which featured the Nike logo. Since all the competitors and spectators were men, they decided to ditch regulation attire and have everyone compete naked. Today’s modern pentathlon ­combines running, swimming, shooting, equestrian skill and fencing. Worthy ­disciplines, yes, but no less random than accounting, brain surgery, jazz saxophone, dog grooming and hopscotch to many viewers. That’s because the ­pentathlon is based on survival skills for a 19th-­ century cavalry officer, according to theguardian.com. Of course, a soldier had to be adept with his revolver and saber. He might even have to swim across a river to evade the enemy and flee on the nearest trusty steed. Today, not so much. Here’s where it gets crazier. All the Olympic equestrian events are “BYO BY THE TIME YOU

All the Olympic equestrian events are “BYO horse” except this one, where there’s a little speed dating in the mix. horse” except this one, where there’s a ­little speed dating in the mix. Pentathlon competitors are paired with a random horse by lottery—aka sheer luck—20 minutes before they’re expected to jump over obstacles as if they’ve been practicing for years. Seems like a good way to get killed if you ask me, which no one did. Imagine being assigned a new doubles partner right before your championship tennis match. Maybe you’ll get Roger Federer. But you might get a lemon like Artem Bahmet, the mysterious Ukrainian player who seems confused about which end of the racket is supposed to hit the

ball. (Either way, you wouldn’t have to convince them to jump over the net with you on their back.) But pentathlon athletes have to do exactly that. And the 1,400-pound-ish beast they’ve just met may not be in a jumping mood. He or she might be in a bucking mood. Or an “I’m not going anywhere until I’ve had my coffee” mood. In Tokyo, several horses put their hoofs down, smashing the Olympic dreams of their flustered riders. Athletes can train for any contingency except a first date with an obstinate horse. When the Olympic committee does ask me, I’ll suggest replacing the whole horse fiasco with Unicycle Hula Hooping. It will be easier for viewers to appreciate the difficulty in that sport than, say, artistic swimming, where the women look unhappier than those horses. No one wearing a nose plug has ever looked happy. Once they make the switch, you’ll never see another rider whipping (or a coach punching) an innocent unicycle. Should we still need more “wow” factor, we can bring back loincloths, which had roughly the same amount of fabric as the women’s beach volleyball outfits. Just saying. JAN A. IGOE ,
