Mayor
Tony
Watkins
revealed he would not seek a
fourth term during an
impromptu announcement at
the beginning of the Darlington
City Council meeting on
Tuesday, June 2.
In his inimitable, storytelling way, Watkins shared the
news as the second half a twopart announcement, after confirming that the sale of the
property behind Walgreens on
Main Street was “done deal” by
former owner Scott Bortz, and
that Bortz had indeed closed on
the property with Walmart.
“This will issue in a new economic transformation for
Darlington, that will come in a
different stages – one, the
arrival of Walmart. And two,
the arrival of other businesses
being attracted to this area by
Walmart.”

Speaking to Darlington
City Council during their
June 2 monthly meeting,
Mrs. Betty A. Mack spoke
during the public participation portion of the meeting
with a tremulous voice.
“You hear my voice,

is terrible. I don’t know how

there is something coming in

What can be done about it?”

“It’s not moving. It’s filed

Unlocking the mysteries of teen angst
by Samantha Lyles
Staff Writer
[email protected]
If you've ever dealt with a
stubborn, grouchy, or hyperemotional teenager or adolescent, you may have asked
yourself, “Why are they
behaving like that?” Author
and teacher Dr. Dave Walsh
provided some insight on
that topic during a speaking
engagement June 5 at
Hartsville's Butler Heritage
Foundation, an event presented by Darlington County
First Steps and the South
Carolina
Campaign
to
Prevent Teen Pregnancy.
Walsh is one of the leading voices on matters of children, parenting, and family
life. He is a faculty member at
the University of Minnesota,
and the author of numerous
books – including one titled
“Why Do They Act That
Way?” - that tackles the science behind teen angst.
During his address at
Butler, Dr. Walsh explained
that although the external
factors of each kid's life can
vary greatly, their internal
struggles are nearly universal. He points out that the

OP-ED
The Swimming
Hole (Wash-Hole)
By Bill shepard
“Home was a swimmin’ hole, a fishin’ pole, and the feel of a
muddy road between my toes.”
The lines above are borrowed from one of my favorite songs.
I wish I had written them first. They speak my sentiments well.
Say the word, swimming hole, in the presence of any group
of old folk who grew up on the old mill village in Darlington,
and minds go scurrying off to a spot on Swift Creek. One could
find a piece of Octagon soap lying on a log or stump most any
time. It would be where a previous bather had left it after taking a cool water of the creek.
It is doubtful that any person living today could find the
place, but at one time it was a popular spot.; the best recreation
place that could be found, especially in the summertime. One
person recently wondered if I had a picture of the wash hole,
and I do have but it is locked away in my mind. I remember the
place well, and in my childhood frequented the place every
chance I had. My memories of the place go back more than four
score years.
I was the youngest of the three Shepard boys; we were like
three peas in a pod. Where you saw one, the other two were
there also. Mama would never allow it to be any other way. If
one went to the wash-hole for a swim, the other two went
along. That was true when we were six, nine, and twelve. Our
sister was born when I was six years old, and she was a welcomed addition to our family, at least most of the time. I say
most of the time, but there were times when we wanted to go to
the wash-hole, and Mama would say, “Rock your sister to sleep
and then you can go.” My older brother would rock and sing
lullabies, but Jenny’s eyes would just get bigger. It was those
times we would have sent her back if we could have. Mama
would finally finish her work and come to our rescue. We would
be off to our favorite spot in the summer time. There was seldom a time one could go to the wash-hole and find no one
there. A huge cypress tree stood at the very edge of the water, it
was the place we would hang our overalls before plunging into
the water. There were dozens of nails driven into the tree for
that purpose. When there were enough boys present, a game
called “Alligator” would be in process. One boy would be the
alligator until he could tag another one. The one tagged would
then become the alligator.
At a place where the water was deepest a log lay across the
stream. It had been there longer than anyone could tell. Most
likely in decades past a storm had blown the tree down. That log
was designated as the “safe” place from the alligator when playing the game. Just a simple game, but hours could be spent
while playing.
For as long as I visited the spot, girls were not allowed. My
sister has informed me that after my time, girls began visiting
the place and she was among the number. It is doubtful that
anyone has been there in a long time, decades!
Memories of the place live on in the minds of those who
enjoyed swimming in the waters, and playing the game
Alligator. If anyone reading this article has memories of the
wash-hole, why not share them with the rest of us? We would
like to hear from you!
The Fishing Hole
By a slow moving creek in my home town,
Boys would come from the village around.
With a crooked cane pole and black flax line,
We would crowd the bank in the summer time.
School was out the last day of May.
In between chores there was time to play.
With a can of worms and a fishing pole,
We would head down to the old fishing hole.
When I was a boy, hours were spent,
Finding much pleasure and it didn’t cost a cent.
And I don‘t regret, now that I’m old,
The time that I spent at the old fishing hole.
The slow moving stream still flows along,
But beside its banks, there isn’t a throng.
For times have changed the boys that be…
They are at home, watching TV.
Poem by Bill
Mr. Shepard is a native of Darlington, S.C., and a current resident
of Piedmont, S.C. Signed copies of Mr. Shepard’s books “Mill Town
Boy” and “Bruised” are available for purchase at the News and Press

decades, and we are delighted to share them each week.
Cruelty to animals
People around the world
have been touched by the case
of Caitlyn, a dog found in
North Charleston with electrical tape wrapped so tightly
around her muzzle that it cut
off blood flow, damaging the
dog's mouth tissue and trapping her tongue between her
teeth for perhaps several days.
It's good news that a suspect in this case has been
arrested. Even though South
Carolina was recently ranked
45th for animal protection
laws out of 56 jurisdictions
studied by the Animal Legal
letters to the editor
Defense Fund, giving Caitlyn's
abuser a substantial sentence
that includes jail time, counseling, and a ban on owning
animals would send a strong
message that cruelty won't be
tolerated.
The link between cruelty to
animals and interpersonal
violence is undeniable. The
FBI uses reports of cruelty in
assessing suspected and
known criminals, and the
American Psychiatric
Association identifies cruelty
to animals as one of the diagnostic criteria for conduct disorders. Medical experts and
law-enforcement officials
agree: Cruelty to animals is a
big red flag.
I urge readers to report all
cases of cruelty to animals
immediately—for everyone's
safety. To learn more, visit

OP-ED
Why am I running for Mayor?
By Gloria C. hines
Growing up on Pine Street
in Darlington, S.C. watching
my mother, Mrs. Cropsy L.
Cheesboro helping people
throughout her lifetime, made
me want to do the same. My
mother, better known as Mrs.
Cropsy, was a caring person,
who always saw the good in
others. When she helped people, she never expected anything in return. Even after her
death, people would continue
to tell me about her kindness
around the community. While
this was my mother’s legacy, I
am continuing my own legacy
in the year 2015.
Let me introduce
myself, I am Gloria
Hines.
I am a motivator and a
leader. I’m an advocate for
those in need of someone to
speak for them. I am the voice
that is not afraid to speak the
truth even when the truth
sometimes hurts. God has
given me this opportunity to
run for mayor, and I am ready
to accept the challenge. I am
prepared for the role of
mayor. I have been a member
of City Council for the last 14
years, I play an integral role in
the Mayo Alumni Association,
I am the Vice President of
Federated Organizations of
Darlington, President of
Round-O Missionary Baptist
Church Pastor’s Aide, Member
of the League of Women
Voters, as well as being a volunteer with the Darlington
County Voting Commission.
While taking on these many
roles in this community, I am
also a business owner- since
1987.
My number one vision for
Darlington was to bring
Walmart to our city. I have
helped bring this to reality.
My vision now is to build up
an infrastructure to attract
even more new businesses.
Previously, two comprehensive plans were completed for
Darlington in order to stimulate growth in our city. We did
not use these plans or ideas to
grow our city. Our comprehensive plans were actually
used in Virginia successfully.
We must return to these
plans, which may add quaint
shops and businesses to
Darlington to bring downtown back to life. Yet, I cannot
do these things alone. It takes
the focus of the entire com-
munity to stand together and
help bring the “Pearl of the
Pee Dee” back and make
Darlington shine. We must
leave a broken past and come
into the future together as a
community.
We can do this by voting
for Gloria Hines for Mayor!

specifically the vital male
hormone testosterone - in
boys, noting that with the
onset of puberty, massive
surges of testosterone can
occur seven times per day.
Since the cerebral cortex is ill
equipped to handle these
surges, a lot of testosterone
winds up in receptors located
in the amygdala, a little
almond-shaped brain bit that
plays a key role in processing
emotions, especially fear
response and aggressive
behavior.
When testosterone surges,
Walsh says a young male's
brain is unable to rationalize
his emotional responses, so
he could shut down and withdraw from company, make
impulsive and irrational decisions, or be easily provoked
into fighting. Testosterone
surges also cause a heightened, sometimes embarrassingly persistent, interest in
sex.
In young females, the hormonal onslaught comes from
two messengers: serotonin (a
mood
stabilizer)
and
dopamine (which promotes
emotional bonding). Walsh
says these chemicals can
cause girls to feel overwhelmed by small crises –
finding no milk in the refrigerator, or being unable to
locate a favorite pair of pants
– and they can exaggerate the
depth of emotional connections in friendships or
romance.
Walsh shared a story from
a male student who recognized the role of hormonal
flux in his teen behavior. The
boy had ceased participating
in family activities and preferred to spend time alone in
his room, citing that he was
angry all the time and didn't
want to be around people.
When his mother questioned
him about his behavior, the
boy answered in a most hurtful way.

special source revenue credit

taxes on the R&D expansion.
Other ordinances receiving
third and final reading
approval included:
No. 15-17, providing for the
issuance and sale of a $2.1 million general obligation bond to
purchase equipment for the
Darlington
County
Fire
Protection District, including
safety gear (breathing apparatus, thermal imaging cameras),
staff vehicles, a new dual-purpose tanker engine, and tanker
upgrades.
No. 15-16, laying out guidelines for regulating renewable
energy for residential, commercial, and other uses in the county.
Second reading approvals
included No. 15-18, which
would authorize Darlington
County Board of Elections and
Registration to conduct municipal elections for the Town of
Lamar.
Council also approved contracts with two vendors:
Intercontinental Commercial
Services (ICS) will provide janitorial services for county facilities at an annual cost of
$130,548; HMES will provide
“He told her, 'Mom, I just
don't like you,'” said Walsh,
adding that the student
planned to call his mom,
share what he had learned,
and apologize.
Dealing with adolescents
and teenagers who are barraged by neurochemical
impulses is no easy road, but
Walsh recommends early
preparation for this difficult
journey.
He notes that when a child
is born, only 17-percent of the
brain's 100 billion neurons
are pre-wired, meaning there
are 1,000,000,000,000,000
possible configurations available. That's a quadrillion
chances to set associations,
patterns of behavior, and
countless crucial qualities
that can help a child survive
and thrive.
“The neurons that fire
together, wire together,” said
Walsh. “Whatever the brain
does a lot of is what it gets
good at.”
So if a baby learns that crying out in distress prompts a
parent to hold them close and
soothe their fears, they may
be more apt to trust parents
during their teen traumas.
Conversely, a baby who cries
for help and receives hostility
or is ignored learns that no
one cares about their pain,
and that child may be more
likely to suffer through adolescence in silence, or to recklessly act out.
Walsh says parents who
are
present,
attentive,
attuned, and responsive can
give a child a great head start
on emotional health, and can
provide steady guidance until
the youth's cortex fully
matures and allows them to
self regulate.

else would like to address

as she approached the council.
“Good afternoon,” said
Jett. “We are on the same
road, with the ditch. I talked
to the man that was at the
ditch, and he said that some
waste was coming in there
from somewhere. So I’m just
asking you, did you all know
waste was coming in your
ditch? Why you didn’t tell

“We have to do some furthe... we are working with

results of that. We will tell

there. Now, how we handle
that may become a legal act.”
Jett continued.
“I see y’all are at the one
point, but the ditch goes all
around and we’ve walked
back there. One day it was so
bad I called Gloria Hines, she
got off the job and we walked
all that way and we found a
pipe running and something
that was coming out of the
hole running in to that ditch,

is coming from the oil mill.
I’m not afraid to say it. That
drain was coming from the oil
mill running into that ditch

not, I’m going to call alone

In his retirement, Watkins
took on a second job at the
Darlington Library branch.
“This is the first time I have

“If you will recall, that
morning I talked to you, and
you said something about
calling DHEC, I said please
do that. Because sometimes
in addition to what we are
going to do, as the administration, it does not hurt that
citizens call. Because they pay
very close attention to what
citizens say and they say we
are hearing this from so yes,
we are aware of that and we
are going toward that to ve
sure we have a very, very
good case at that and proven
by to see that it is.”
Councilwoman Hines
added, ”Well, I hope this time
we go all the way with it
because I brought to council
more than one time. We
talked about it in the work
session, and I told you before
I know Miss Jett and her family has a problem with it, they
live on it. And I’m on Pine
Street and as I told you my
son in law comes to town - he
has asthma so bad he can’t
stay at my house. We’ve had
to take him to the Emergency
Room twice.”
Watkins replied, “ I think
the odors I heard about were
particulate matter that were
being released into the atmosphere which is a little different situation than this. And
something and it’s not just an
isolated problem. It’s not
going to happen overnight.
And we can’t just fix your
problem because there is a

and whet happens upstream
affects you, and when it goes
downstream, it affects others.”
City manager Howard
Garland asked Water and
Sewer Director to comment,
and he said that DHEC had
been down there and tested.
“Is there fecal matter?”
aksed Garland.
“Yes.”
In other public comments,
Linda Humprhies was victorious in saving her beloved Oak
tree on Oak Street in a plea to
have it removed from the list
of trees that may need to be

KeepiNg the Faith
Keep Moving
Imagine that you are on
your way to a much anticipated beach vacation. After
hours of hard traveling you
rub your bloodshot eyes and
see a glorious sign that says,
“Beaches.” You are overjoyed.
But how strange would it be,
if when you saw that sign you
immediately stopped the car
and began unloading all of
your vacation wares as if you
had actually arrived at your
destination?
How bizarre, if you and
your family started setting up
beach chairs and umbrellas,
if you began unpacking coolers, baiting fish hooks, and
slathering on the sun block
right there beneath the sign?
Would it not be false to start
calling and texting everyone
back home to tell them that
you were safe at the beach,
when in fact you were only
camping at a mile marker
along the way?
Of course it would, yet
many people of faith do
exactly this sort of thing
when it comes to reading
their Bibles. They see the
Scriptures as the end of their
spiritual journey, not the
road sign along the way,
pointing them to a much
more magnificent destination. What exactly is the Bible
pointing us toward? In a
word, Jesus.
In one of the more lofty
concepts of the New
Testament, John wrote, “In
the beginning was the Word.
The Word was with God and
was God. That Word became
flesh and dwelt among us.”
The true Word of God, by the
Bible’s own testimony, is not
a written document. It is a
Person. It is the one we call
Jesus. Thus, the Bible is
always pointing to him as the
supreme authority for faith.
He is “The Word of God for
the People of God.”
Let there be no doubt,
road signs will point you in
the right direction, but you
can’t camp out in the median.
If you do, you might get run
over; distract other travelers
along the way; create a good
deal of confusion; and you
certainly aren’t going to get
anywhere. In fact you’ll miss
out on what this journey is
about.
It is right to be called
“People of the Book,” that is,
lovers of the Bible. But let us
remember that we are not
Biblicists, because the Bible
itself isn’t the end of our convictions. We are Christians,
followers of Jesus who are
always heeding his voice and
moving in his direction, the
author, sustainer, and perfecter of our faith.

NEWS AND PRESS | DARLINGTON, S.C.
Church of the
Week
Continued from 1A
talk about many other
impressive churches that all
South Carolinians should see
and learn more about. Today
starts that expansion, it’s time
to venture out a bit and learn
more about beautiful church
buildings that you may have
seen or certainly should see, as
well as learn a little about
them. Don’t worry though, we
still have more in Darlington
County to discover, so keep
reading, we will come back
home.
Invariably when someone
around here finds out that I
know something about old
churches they will ask about
two churches in particular. I
can hear them now, “Oh you
look for old churches do you?
What do you know about the
one on the back road to
Florence, near the interstate?”
Knowing full well which one
they are asking about I’ll say,
“What’s the name of it?” Their
reply is like a recording, “I don’t
know the name, but it’s that
pretty white church with the
red roof.”
“That pretty white church
with the red roof” is our subject
for this week and its name is
Pisgah United Methodist
Church.
Pisgah’s striking
appearance and its highly visible location does indeed make
it hard to forget, even though
its name may not be known by
all that drive by it. Along with
its “post card setting”, Pisgah
also have many interesting historical facts and the past and
present congregation is to be
commended for their efforts to
retain those records and to
maintain their building for all
to enjoy.
The founding fathers of
Pisgah had their roots deeply in
grained in this area, which was
a part of the Darlington District
even before the Revolutionary
War. Their attempt to organize
into any type of church or religious affiliation seemed to be
somewhat scattered and held
several different names until
February 6, 1806. The name of
Pisgah is not associated at all
with this date, but there is
record of the Darlington
WEDNESDAY JUNE 10, 2015 | PAGE 5A
District Court reading a “citation” on the estate of a
deceased person at “Russell’s
Church”. A “citation” was
always read at the nearest
“church” or “religious gathering place” to where a deceased
person lived.
So where did the name
Pisgah come from, stay with me
we’ll get there. In December of
1813 Dempsey Russell gave
land for a building to be built
and used as a church. A one
room meeting house was soon
built and the congregation
began to gain new members
and grow with enthusiasm.
Between 1814 and 1840 this
congregation is mentioned in
records as “Russell’s Meeting
House”, or the “Society at
Russell’s”. As the political climate in America began to
change so did the climate and
personalities in most churches.
By 1840 there was not a single
Russell on the church roll here.
The name of “Pisgah” was
adopted, possible because the
31 members felt like it sounded
more Biblical. From here forward the name of Pisgah, in
one form or another, has
appeared in the official records
of this church.
Now that we all know the
name of “That pretty white
church with the red roof”, lets
learn about the building. Even
though the membership of
Pisgah experienced a slight
decline in enrollment after the
War Between the States when a
new church was formed at
Wilson’s Crossroads, soon to be
Florence, the original Russell
land was maintained and a new
one room church building was
built in 1878 or 1879 for $850.
In November of 1913, one hundred years after the first land
was donated by the Russell
Family, the Hoffmeyer family
donated 4 more acres of land
for the purpose of building the
present building.
This wonderful Carpenter
Gothic church building was
made basically ready for its
first service on Easter Sunday,
April 12, 1914; but not without
problems. The first problem
occurred very early into the
building process, even as the
lot was being cleared for the
new building. A tree that needed to be removed was accidentally dropped on the 1879
church building, partially
demolishing it, so the congregation had no place to worship
during the construction of the
new building. In spite of a few
minor setbacks as a result of
the ongoing WW I, progress
began to appear until work
stopped in October of 1913.
The original builder quit, just
walked off the job, never to
return. So the next challenge
was to find another builder.
Lucius Patrick Raines, a local
builder who had recently finish
Mt. Elon Baptist Church in
Lydia, was talked into completing Pisgah for the fee of $1,075.
In December of 1913 work
resumed.
A big plus for Mr. Raines to
be able to finish the building,
that someone else started, was
that the building committee
did have a good set of building
plans to build by. A local mail
carrier, L. McDuffie Hicks, had
a sincere interest in architecture and had recently completed a correspondence course to
become a trained architect. As
one of his first projects, he
drew a detailed set of plans for
the present Pisgah Church.
Even with the first service
being held on Easter Sunday of
1914, the building was not
completely finished until June
28, 1914 when the congregation celebrated with a
Centennial Celebration Service
in their new building, which at
that time had a value of
$10,000.
As with many
churches, this figure may not
have been a completely accurate figure; because many
members gave time, talents
and materials towards the completion of their beloved church
building.
The present congregation,
in keeping with its over 200
year tradition of loyalty to their
church, continues to do an
exemplarily job of maintaining
their building at 621 N.
Ebenezer Rd., many times over.
Hopefully now after learning
more about the trials & tribulations that have faced this
church; next time you view it, it
will be seen as more than “That
pretty white church with the
red roof”, and you will not need
to wonder “What’s the name of
it?”

Susan Johnson Memorial
Scholarship Grant awarded to
Stephen C. Parker
The Susan Johnson
Memorial Fund Committee
has announced that Stephen
Clayton Parker has been
awarded the 2015 Susan
Johnson Memorial
Scholarship Grant in the
amount of $4000.00. This
non-repayable grant is
awarded annually to a graduate or former graduate of
Darlington High School
(Formerly St. John’s High), or
a graduate or former graduate from the Darlington Area
Attendance Zone of Mayo
High School for Math,
Science, and Technology,
Trinity Collegiate School who
intends to pursue further
education or training leading
to a career in health care.
Factors considered in the
selection of the annual recipient of this award include academic standing, extra-curricular activities, character, and
recommendations from the
principal and/or faculty of
the schools mentioned.
Stephen Clayton Parker
lives with his father and
mother and is graduating at
this time from Mayo High
School for Math, Science and
Technology in the Class of
2015. Stephen is active in the
community by participating
in Earth Day, Salkehatchie
Summer Service, and completed a project at Bethea
Retirement Community for
his Eagle Scout service project. He is a member of the
National Honors Society,
President of the Mu Alpha
Theta Math Honor Society,
Star Student and Junior
Marshal at Mayo High School
for Math, Science and
Technology for the Class of
2014.
Stephen plans to attend
Presbyterian College in
Clinton, and major in PreMed/Biology, and has later
plans to attend medical
school with the desire to specialize in pediatrics.
He indicates there are several reasons why he wants to
enter the health care field.
“The primary reason for
me wanting to be a pediatrician is that I have a passion
for children,” said Parker. “I
believe that children are society’s future. I also feel this
career field would always
have something new and
exciting to see and deal
with.”
The Susan Johnson
Memorial Fund was established in 1968 in memory of
Miss Susan Johnson, who at
the time of her death was an
outstanding senior at St.
John’s High School and was
active in her church and community. Miss Susan Johnson
was the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. W. Richard (Dot)
Johnson.
This fund is administered
by a committee operating
under the supervision of the
Session of the Darlington
Presbyterian Church.

Post 13 baseball opens 2015 season
By Mike Weatherford
Contributing Writer
@darlingtonpride
Gearhart new DHS varsity baseball coach
Dennis Gearhart
will be the new varsity
Baseball Coach at
Darlington
High,
school
officials
announced
today.
Gearhart, who teaches
fifth grade St. John’s
Elementary School,
has been Darlington
High’s head junior varsity baseball coach
since 2008.
“Coach Gearhart
has been part of the
Falcon family through
coaching for more
than eight years now.
He knows our program, our students,
and our focus,” said
Dr. Greg Harrison,
principal of Darlington
High School. “Coach
Gearhart has the skills
and knowledge to take
our baseball program
to the next level. I’m
excited to see the next
chapter in Darlington
baseball under his
leadership.
He’s
proven himself to be a
hard worker and dedicated to our students.
We believe he is the
perfect fit for where
our program currently
is, and to help us fulfill
the vision we have for
Darlington
High
School baseball.”
“This is always
something I’ve wanted
to do,” said Gearhart.
“I’ve always loved
baseball and have
played my entire life. I
feel this is the best way
for me to give back to
the game I love, and to
instill that love in my
players. I was lucky
enough to be a part of
Darlington
High’s
coaching staff straight
out of college and I’ve
seen the way the program has grown. I look
forward to helping it
continue to grow.”
Gearhart, a math
and science teacher,
Have you seen our new website?
www.newsandpress.net
believes academics are
a key part of a successful team and he plans
to work closely with
his players and their
teachers to make sure
his players are as successful off the field as
on, in terms of both
academics and discipline.
He has extesive
coaching experience
at Darlington High. He
served as the head junior varsity and assistant varsity baseball
coach since 2008; and
also an assistant varsity and head junior varsity football coach
Post 13 Junior Legion baseball sponsored by the
American Legion opened in
Darlington this week with two
close losses from drastically
different styles of games. Post
13 lost to Post 53 from
Hartsville in a 2 to 0 pitcher’s
duel on Monday the 1st. Then,
on Friday June 5th, they lost
to Post 1 from Florence 18 to
15 in an eight inning shootout.
Monday’s game saw Post
13, coached by recently
appointed Darlington High
School varsity baseball coach
Dennis Gearhart, held to 5 hits
and no runs in 7 innings, after
being held in check by
Hartsville pitcher Garrett
Gainey. Two of those hits were
collected by leadoff man Jared
Boswell, who along with his
two singles, made an unbelievable diving play in center
in the 5th inning to stop a
Hartsville rally.

Darlington trailed the
majority of the game but tied
things up at 14 in the 7th with
a gutsy suicide squeeze call by
Coach Gearhart with catcher
Cameron Norris at the plate.
Norris laid down a perfect
bunt to score Jake Jones who
was three quarters down the
line when the bunt went down
and scored easily.
“We showed a lot of fight.
We never gave up and we
never will”, Coach Gearhart
was quoted as saying.
Pitching duties were handled by Brycen Brown, Rylan
Weatherford and Jake Jones
who combined to strike out 5
on the night.
Post 13 next plays home
against Marlboro on Monday
the 8th and then Wednesday
the 10th at home against
Cheraw. The remaining home
games are Monday the 15th
against Bishopville and Friday
the 26th against South
Florence. Admission is $5 and
the concession stand is second
to none.
Post 13 is coached by
Dennis Gearhart, Danny
Williamson and Barry Brown.

and Tommy Williams picked
up the other three Post 13 hits.
Jake Jones and Bryant
Huggins handled the pitching
duties. They combined to give
up only 4 hits while striking,
out 7.
“We were right there in it
the whole time. We just have
to get those timely hits. We
will be fine though and no one
will out work us.” Coach
Gearhart said after the game.
Friday’s game was a little
more offensive minded with
Post 13 scoring 15 runs on 15
hits after trailing 9 to 0 after
the first inning of play. Again,
Darlington was led by leadoff
man Jared Boswell who singled and scored on three separate occasions, and made a
running catch on a well hit
ball to center field with his
back to the infield. Other contributors were Matthew
DeMaurice who went 2 for 5,
Jake Jones at 2 for 6, Eric
McElveen at 3 for 5, Cameron
Norris at 2 for 4, Rylan
Weatherford at 1 for 3 and
Bryant Huggins at 2 for 4.

Gomillion - Byrd
Miss Kayla Rebecca Gomillion of Auburn, Alabama, and Wesley
Richard Byrd of Dallas, Texas, were united in marriage on May 9,
2015, at Kiesel Park in Auburn, Alabama. Pastor Brandon Isbell performed the ceremony.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Max (Janie) Gomillion of Jay,
Florida. She is granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Max Ray
Gomillion of Jay, Florida, and the late Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wesley
Porter of Florence, Alabama.
The bride received a BA degree in Human Development and
Family Studies at Auburn University. Before her marriage, the bride
worked as a transition job coach at Opelika High School and
Auburn High School. She is pursuing her masters degree in School
Counseling from Auburn University.
The bride wore an ivory lace-overlay mermaid gown with sweetheart neckline, traditional lace straps, and re-embroidered lace
appliques. The bride’s bouquet was wrapped and flowing with tatting hand- made by her great-great grandmother, the late Mrs.
Mattie Mason Hendrix of Florence, Alabama.
The groom is son of Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Wesley (Susie) Byrd of
Darlington, South Carolina. He is grandson of Mrs. Richard G.
Williams and the late Mr. Williams of Darlington, South Carolina,
the late Mr. and Mrs. Bryant H. Harrill of Bennettsville, South
Carolina, and the late Mr. S. Wesley Byrd of Darlington, South
Carolina.
The groom received a BS degree in Construction Science and
Management from Clemson University. He is employed as superintendent with Robins & Morton at Children’s Medical Center of
Dallas, Texas.
The bride’s sister, Mrs. Summer Gomillion Walker, served as
Matron of Honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Kirby Byrd Boyce, sister of

Mrs. Courtney Patrick Henson, cousin of the bride, Miss Brittnay
Renee Hammac, Miss Jenna Nicole Nash, Mrs. Jane Dowling Smola,

Woodard, cousins of the groom, Mr. Edwin Fuller Bryant, Mr.
Jonathan Sterling Holder, Mr. Kenneth Wayne Richardson, Mr. Kipp

A reception followed at Kiesel Park. The couple honeymooned in
St. John’s, Antigua. They currently reside in Dallas, Texas.
A rehearsal dinner party was given by the parents of the groom,
Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Wesley Byrd, in honor of Miss Gomillion and
Mr. Byrd on Friday, May 8 at Kiesel Park.
Friends:
It is that time of year
again, my favorite of all
time, magolia, hydrangea
and gardenia season!
And, I must admit, I
swipe magnolia blossoms
and have been known to
swipe a gardenia or two.
I’ve only swiped a
one...okay, two hydrangeas
in my nefarious past, only
because they are noticeable
when swiped, so I only have
snipped two from homes
that were for sale.
Now, swiping gorgeous
blooms is not anything to
brag about. Especially not
publically, and in a paper
that prints the booking
reports.
But, I have such a strong
love of the scent of magnolia blooms, and gardenias,
that I just - can - not - resist.
I try to walk away without taking one when I take
my little white Schnoodle
Taffy on her early morning
walks. But then, I get
tempted, and I turn back for
one long inhale of whichever heavily fragranced bloom
that is within reach.
And, I tell myself, just
one.
And I am careful to only
snip the gardenias on bushes that have an overabundance and take the one
closest to the ground, or
way behind the bush that
won’t spoil the view for others who enjoy them as
much as me.
And, as far as magnolia
branches are for someone
to reach that barely graces
5’5” in my preferred walking shoe, white Keds or flip
flops, I rarely manage to
reach one, but when I do, I
take great care to only take
one that is again, hidden
from view and from a tree
that has plenty more for
others to enjoy.
When I confess my sins
to others, many roll their
eyes and say, “Magnolia
trees are so messy! Why on
earth do you love THEM?”
And I answer...”You have
obviously never smelled one
up close!”
When challenged, my
magnolia hating friends are
surprised.
The scent of a magnolia
blossom is heavy, sweet,
and lemony. It is what I
imagine heaven will smell
like each morning as the
angels fly among the puffy
clouds on their way to choir
practice.
And the gardenia, well,
that scent is timeless. My
great-grandmother had
many little tiny bottles of
the scent from the 1920’s
that were saved when she
died much too young from
a tuberculosis update when
my Mum was only 3 years
old, and her little brother
was barely 6 months old. I
have one of Grandmother
Josephine’s tiny gardenia
perfume bottles on my
dresser.
And as legend goes, she
used to swipe tomatoes
fresh off the vine on her
way to school some mornings and eat it like an apple.
So, I blame my impulsive
bloom swiping on her, and
pray that God forgives me.
I am really sorry, God.
See you next week!

Endless Yard Sale
makes filming stop
in Florence
The
Great
American
Country television show
Endless Yard Sale will make a
stop in downtown Florence
on June 20th 8am - 2pm. Yard
sale vendors are invited to
participate.
The South Carolina
episode of Endless Yard Sale
will feature three teams of
shoppers on their adventure
to find unusual antiques and
collectibles. Teams will start
their journey in Florence,
head over to Georgetown,
make a stop in Berkeley
County,
and
end
in
Charleston.
Teams will be searching
for the best bargains and
receive on the spot appraisals
for antiques, vintage items,
and memorabilia. Vendors
will line Dargan and Cheves
Streets with their best-kept
items up for sale.
The team that has the
highest appraisal on their
purchases will have a head
start in picking out their next
treasure. In the end, one team
will prove that they're the
smartest bargain hunters.
"Our office is always excited to hear that Florence will
be included in film productions,"
notes
Florence
Convention and Visitors
Bureau
director
Holly
Beaumier. " The Endless Yard
Sale
airing
on
Great
American Country is a great
way to build awareness of
Florence,"
Beaumier says there is an
opportunity to build off of
this this one time filming by
extending the stops along
Highway 52, similar to the
Longest Yard Sale that runs
along Highway 127 from
Michigan to Tennessee. "In
the future, we may coordinate an annual Highway 52
yard sale running from
Mount Airy, NC to Charleston
- tying together all the towns
along the way."
The Florence CVB is seeking vendors for the filming on
June 20th. If you have
antiques, collectibles, or
unique items that you would
like to sell, here’s your chance
to be in the spotlight. Booth
spaces can be reserved with a
$15 fee which benefits
Harvest Hope Food Bank and
takes care of the garage sale
license. Please contact the
Florence Convention and
Visitors Bureau to reserve
your booth space, or visit
www.visitflo.com.

Darlington High School Class of 2015
Remarks from Dr. Greg Harrison, Principal
Heart of the Falcon
The Heart of the Falcon
Award is presented to the one
senior that demonstrates
Falcon PRIDE. Perseverance,
Respect,
Integrity,
Dependability, and Excellence
are qualities that this senior
possesses.
I would like to share some
teacher comments about this
student:
“He is one of my best students, he always has a smile.
He’s polite, compassionate,
and a role model for others”.
“This young man is a true
example of being humble, and
I enjoyed working with him
this year.”
“He leads by example by
showing others confidence as
a leader.”
“His motto is: Work hard to
be the best, strive to stay the
best, be the one to look up to,
enjoy yourself through it.”
As the Principal, I personally will miss this young man’s
leadership around school. He
truly is a perfect example of
Falcon PRIDE, and every time I
see the JROTC uniform
around campus or the presenting of the colors at a game, I
will think of this young man.
I am honored to present the
2015 Heart of the Falcon recipient Michael Rice.
To the Class of 2015:
It has been a great year at
Darlington High School.
For the first time in school
history, Darlington High
School earned national recognition by earning a Bronze
award by the U.S. News and
World Report, as being one of
the Best High Schools in
nation, and State of South
Carolina.
Darlington High School
received an Excellent report
card rating from the South
Carolina State Dept of
Education; a 5 star rating, for
the 3rd straight year in a row.
We have a 93% graduation
rate, one of the highest in the
state of South Carolina.
We were awarded the
Palmetto Gold Award from
State Dept of Education for
Academic Achievement and
Closing the Achievement Gap
for the 3rd consecutive year.
For first time in school history, one of our graduates will
represent Darlington High
School in the Miss South
Carolina Pageant. We wish
you the best of luck to Murphy
Lee.
Our senior class, Class of
2015, was awarded more than
5.1 million in scholarships.
This was a school record.
Students in the Early
College Program can earn an
Associate’s degree, a 2 year
college degree, while on the
campus of Darlington High
School and taught by our
highly qualified teachers. This
is at no cost to parents, a savings of up to $20,000 to
$75,000 in college tuition
fees.
Our students were also
involved in giving back to our
community through service
projects:
•
We raised over $7000
and 175 volunteers served
more than 108 needy families
a meal at Christmas.
•
Students raised $800
for a mammogram scholarship at McLeod Cancer
Treatment Center.
•
Students raised over
$1,800 for Darlington County
Relay for Life, American
Cancer Society.
•
Students volunteered
at local nursing homes playing
bingo and giving out prizes to
residents.
•
Students organized a
bake sale for UNICEF, which
provided 88 vaccines to children in 3rd world countries.
•
Students volunteered
at local elementary schools
awards programs, field days,
and reading activities.
•
Thanksgiving carnival for Salvation Army,
Hospice Care, care packages
for U.S. soldiers across seas,
Darlington Christmas Parade,
and Red Cross blood drives,
recycling, Anti-Bully Orange
out week, Voter Registration,
and who can forget “Flo the
Purple Toilet” that visited
many homes in our community to raise money for Relay for
life. The list goes on and on.
To the graduates, as you
leave Darlington High School
ask yourself: What am I doing
to increase hope in the world?
What am I doing to teach
someone else what I’ve
learned? Am I demonstrating
Falcon PRIDE?
A great scholar once stated,
that a long journey begins
with a single step.
The
graduates
from
Darlington High School Class
of 2015 are taking a giant step
in the right direction.

HHS Principal’s Remarks
“Loving Hands”
by Dr. Charlie Burry
To the Hartsville High
School Class of 2015
Each morning during the
school year we have a cdharacter education quote or
Thought for the Day that we
include with the Pledge of
Allegiance to the Flag and our
Red Fox Pledge of Honor. It
also has been my practice to
ask the senior class to endure
one last Thought for the Day
during
the
principal’s
remarks at their graduation
ceremony.
Many of you are probably
thinking right now the same
thing that the church congregation thought when the
preacher stepped to the pulpit
and said, “I’ve got so much to
say that I don’t know where to
start,” and a voice from the
back of the church responded,
“Somewhere near the end
would be good.”
Well, I won’t start somewhere near the end, but I will
try to be brief and to-the- point
with my message to you.
Tonight, as I did at last year’s
graduation, I’m going to tell you
a story. The story is not mine; I
got it from a Facebook post by a
friend of a friend.
I’ve
researched it, but have not
been able to determine the
identity of the original author.
I have changed the story just a
bit to suit my writing style, but
most of it is closely paraphrased from the Facebook
post. So, give it a listen and
maybe you’ll see a little of your
past . . . and your future . . .
somewhere in it. The story goes
like this.
A young man who had just
graduated from college was
applying for an important position with a large company. He
did well in the first interview
and had been called back to
meet the company president for
the final interview that would
determine whether or not he
got the job. The company president looked at the young man’s
resume’ for a few minutes, and
was pleased with what he saw.
Then he asked him, “Did you
receive a scholarship to help
you pay for college?” The
young man replied, “No.” The
older man continued, “So, it
was your parents who paid for
your studies?” “Yes,” the young
man replied. “Where do your
parents work?” the company
president asked. The young
man answered, “My father has
his own shop, and he’s a carpenter. My mother is a housewife, and she keeps a big garden for our family.” The older
man then asked the young man
to show him his hands. The
young man’s hands were soft
and perfect.
The company
president asked, “Have you ever
helped your father in his shop,
or worked with your mother in
her garden?” The young man
replied, “No sir, never, my parents always wanted me to study
so that I could go to college.”
The company president said, “I
have a request. When you go
home today, ask your parents to
let you wash their hands for
them. Then come back to see
me tomorrow morning.” The
young man left feeling that his
chances of getting the job were
good, but he was puzzled about
the
company
president’s
request.
When the young man
returned home, he first asked
his mother if she would allow
him to wash her hands. His
mother thought it was a strange
request, but she agreed, so with
mixed feelings she showed
her hands to her son.
The young man slowly
washed his mother’s hands. It
was the first time he noticed
that they were rough and hard,
that they had so many scars,
and that her fingernails were
torn and ragged.
Then he went to his father
and asked if he would allow
him to wash his hands.
That’s when he saw that his
father’s hands were much
rougher, with big callouses,
and even more wounded than
his mother’s hands.
After washing his father’s
hands, the young man went to
his room in silence and in deep
thought. He thought about why
his parents’ hands were so
rough and hard, and what had
made them that way. It was the
first time that the son had ever
realized what it had meant for
his parents to work hard every
day to pay for his education, his
school activities and his future.
Later that night, the young man
and his parents talked for a
long, long time. The next
morning the young man went
back to the office of the company president. The older man
noticed tears in the young
man’s eyes when he asked him
what he had learned when he
went home the night before.
The young man replied, “I
learned that without my parents, I would not be where I am
today. I learned of the hard
work and the sacrifices that my
parents made for me, and that
a person does not get anywhere
in life without the help of others. I gained a greater appreciation for family, and teachers
and others who have helped
me throughout my life.”
Then the company president
said, “That is what I look for in
my employees. I want to hire
people who appreciate the help
of others, people who are
grateful for the hardships of
others on their behalf, and people who are willing to help others in return. The job is yours.“
As you’re maybe taking a
look at your own hands right
now, we should keep in mind
that in today’s world of work,
this story is not a perfect analogy. In our present economy,
there are many jobs that
require long, hard hours in difficult working conditions that
might not involve real physical
labor. Instead of rough and
wounded hands, the labor
might manifest itself in mental
fatigue or emotional stress.
That kind of work, so demanding over a period of many
years, also takes a harsh physical toll on a person in ways not
as easy to see as a pair of calloused hands.
Keeping that in mind, let’s
think for a minute about the
people who have had a hand in
bringing us to where we are
tonight. None of us got where
we are by ourselves.
We had biological parents
who gave us the genes and the
characteristics that made each
one of us a uniquely talented
person in an interestingly
diverse population. We are
products of our experiences
with those who cared for us
throughout our childhood
years.
We have been influenced by those in our extended
families, church groups, educational
experiences
and
extracurricular activities, and
maybe even the world of work.
We have had people in our lives
that set examples for us and
inspired us. There are those in
our lives who disciplined us to
be who we should be, and
challenged us to be better than
we thought we could be.
How have your parents’
hands or the hands of others literally or figuratively helped
you to be the person you are
now, and the person that you
will be in the future? In addition to working for your wellbeing, did they also work on
your character? Did they insist
that your behavior meet their
expectations with your personal and social life, and have
there been consequences when
you failed to do that? If you got
in trouble at school, did they
encourage you to accept the
responsibility and learn from
it? Did they ever take away any
of your privileges or restrict
what you were allowed to do?
Did your parents teach you the
value of money by setting limits
on your spending and telling
you to get a part time job if you
wanted more? Did they insist
that you show them proper
respect, and by doing that also
teach you to respect your teachers and other adults? Did they
encourage you come to school
on time, have good attendance,
and do the best that you could
in your schoolwork? Here at
school, did your teachers have
high expectations of you in the
classroom? Did they require a
strong work ethic, and encourage you to read and write and
think when you really didn’t
want to? Did your coaches and
instructors push you to be more
successful than you thought
you could be? Looking forward, the most important question is this: What kind of person, citizen, spouse, parent,
employee and life-long learner
will those hands have helped
you to be? And finally, when I
asked a minute ago if those
who helped you worked for
your wellbeing as well as on
your character, are those two
things really any different?
Tonight when you meet your
parents and other family members after the ceremony, take a
look at their hands. They may
or may not be visibly wounded
or rough to the touch, but I
hope they will always remind
you -as the young man seeking
the job in tonight’s story
learned -to appreciate the help
of others, to be grateful for the
hardships endured on your
behalf, and to be willing to help
others in return. If you live
your life based on those ideals,
you will help make our world a
better place, which is what a
truly educated person should
do. Now, as you commence on
the next leg of your life’s journey,
remember
whose
rough…and loving …hands
helped to set you on your way.
Tonight those hands applaud
you, wish you Godspeed, and
they are folded in silent prayer
hat a greater being will continue to hold you . . . in the palm
of His hand.

professional life experiences. We
are proud to say this class will
