Murrells Inlet Messenger
The local newspaper for Murrells Inlet and Garden City Beach
APRIL VOL. 3 NO. 3
We are calling this 27th issue of the monthly
Murrells Inlet Messenger our book issue.
We didn’t plan it that way – it just happened.
We were contacted by the South Carolina
Academy of Authors with a big story about
the inlet’s Mickey Spillane. A local author let
us know she won a book award. The Murrells
Inlet History Project’s provided a story on the
Wayside Restaurant, which will – someday be part of another book by Murrells Inlet native Steve Strickland. And, Claude Bachand,
a Murrells Inlet man, sent us a story about his
authoring a book about living with a loved
one with Parkinson’s.
Then there are book themes:
You can read the MI 2020 update, and our
community events pages and briefs, and fill
up your date book with upcoming events.
And, want some help with your own financial books? Edward Jones and Wells Fargo
financial advisors offer some good tips inside.
I’m running out of ways to connect everything in the April edition to books. So, enjoy
this 27th issue of the local monthly newspaper
for Murrells Inlet and Garden City Beach that
encourages, informs and inspires the community: the Murrells Inlet Messenger.

MI History Project: The Wayside Restaurant
By Steve Strickland
The Wayside Restaurant was located in the
same building as the Hot Fish Club.
It was constructed in the early 1940’s by Jamel
Lokey’s family (he was married to Pat Morse,
Clarence “Beau” Morse’s sister).
Jamel Lokey was from the Greenville, S.C., area
and moved here after graduating high school.
Clarence and his family had their house and
oyster roast beside Lokey’s, where Morse Park
is located. George “Son” Morse and his wife,
May Wesley Morse, lived in a three-story house
located on the site of Russell’s Seafood Grill.
Lokey’s stayed open for several years and was
operated by Ruby and Esau Lazarowitz and by
Ida Pearl Lee (of Lee’s Inlet Kitchen) during the
early 1950’s. The restaurant survived Hurricane
Hazel in 1954 with minimal damage, having no
water enter the building during the storm surge
due to its location on the crest of a small hill.
Jim and Lucy Vereen Bailey bought the building after Hurricane Hazel and opened it initially
as the Angler’s Club (a bar and grill) but changed
the name to the Wayside Grill, and the menu to
traditional Murrells Inlet seafood. Lucy Vereen
was one of Sam Permenter Vereen’s daughters
(her sisters included Francis Vereen, who married Judge H. K. Wilson, and Teeny, who married Mac Oliver). The Vereen’s of Murrells Inlet
descended from John Fletcher Vereen, a Civil
War veteran who owned the Ark Plantation (we
know this area as Surfside and Garden City).
Jim and Lucy Vereen Bailey operated the Wayside Restaurant for about eight years. The Wayside was kept in the Vereen family when they
sold it in 1963 to Lucy’s nephew, Sam Vereen,
who ran it for another 20 years.
Wayside was run as a family operation, with
in-laws and children involved in keeping the

The Bachands: life, love and Parkinson’s
What would you do if your wife was diagnosed
with Parkinson’s disease?
Claude Bachand found out, starting in 1998.
In 2008, his wife, Dotty, died.
In 2012, he published “Please Stop,” a memoir
about their lives, their enduring love, and how
they coped with Parkinson’s.
About half of the memoir is set in South Carolina, primarily in Murrells Inlet, where the couple
lived during the years Dotty was afflicted with
Parkinson’s. Claude, 76, still lives in Wachesaw
A former journalist and public relations and
marketing man, Claude describes their pasts
growing up in a small mill town, their meeting
and marriage and life before Parkinson’s, and
how they dealt with problems related to her mobility, balance, eating and drinking:
For example, at the movies, they’d sit in the
back row, in case Dotty’s dyskinesia began; they
asked waitresses to bring Dotty’s iced tea with a
lid and straw, in case she knocked the drink over;
Claude Bachand, memoir writer and inlet resident
and Claude carried four handkerchiefs with him
at all times, handing one to Dotty if she began
He also rushed her to the emergency room at
Waccamaw Hospital twice after serious falls.
Dotty was diagnosed and treated originally by

MI races are a success, more fun to come
By Sue Sledz
Murrells Inlet 2020
The skies cleared and a beautiful sunrise appeared over the marsh for the 2012 South Atlantic Bank Race for the Inlet on March 24, as 450
runners and walkers, from all corners of South
Carolina, ten states and Canada took to the beautiful oak-lined streets to complete the 5K and 8K
And, the following morning, 123 cyclists
whirled off from the Grand Strand Bicycle Shop
at Woodside Village to participate in the 2012
Inaugural Ride for The Inlet event. Cyclists had
their choice of an 8-mile, 26-mile or 65-mile
route that took them through the backroads of
Georgetown and Horry counties. Murrells Inlet
2020 sincerely thanks our sponsors and donors,
our army of volunteers, the Georgetown County
and Horry County Sheriff’s Offices, Murrells
Inlet/Garden City Fire District, and the Grand
Strand Bicycles Cycling Club/Racing Team for
all their help in making these events huge successes.
As for future events, keep in mind...
On Saturday, April 7, MI 2020 is hosting the
Marshwalk Masters, so put on your knickers and
putt yourself through the marshwalk and stop
at restaurants along the way. Lowest individual
score winner receives $500 cash, with additional
2nd and 3rd place and best dressed golfer prizes. Cost is $20 per player (over 12) and $15 per
player (under 12). Visit the Events page at www.

form and get more details. It’s guaranteed a fun
time for all!
On April 22, MI 2020 invites every Murrells
Inlet resident to spend a morning giving back to
the inlet we all love. Please join our community
at the 21st Annual Spring Tide, South Carolina’s
longest running community clean up day. The
“Day for the Inlet” is that one day in spring when
hundreds of volunteers gather together to comb
the creeks and streets of Murrells Inlet to pick
up litter. Volunteers should meet at Morse Parking Landing on Hwy. 17 in Murrells Inlet at 9:45
a.m. to get their clean-up assignments. Bring
boots, boats, bug spray and gloves. The clean-up
continues until 1 p.m., when all the workers are
invited back to the Hot Fish Club for live music
and some light-hearted festivities. Dozens of restaurants will compete in the “Best Damn Chowder Cook-Off” during the afternoon to feed the
volunteers. If you have never participated, then
this is your year to catch the fever! And if you
helped out in previous years, we know you’ll be
back … because you care. Contact Murrells Inlet

If you’re like most people, you think estate investment planning is only for the wealthy. The truth is
that everyone — regardless of how much money they
have — needs an estate investment plan. Here are a
few frequently asked questions about estate investment planning, along with the answers that may help
you better understand this subject:
What is an estate plan? An estate investment plan
is a program for the management and distribution
of your assets upon your death, as well as instructions for handling your affairs should you become
unable to do so while you are still alive. Your estate investment plan should include a will and/or a
revocable living trust as well as updated beneficiary
designations for your 401(k), Individual Retirement
Account, savings bonds and life insurance policies.
Both a durable power of attorney and a health care
power of attorney should also be created. Your Financial Advisor can help you work out the details of
your plan and can also help keep it up-to-date.
Why do you need an estate investment plan? An estate investment plan can not only potentially reduce
the taxes your heirs must pay on assets they receive
from your estate, but can also ensure that your accumulated wealth will go to the individuals that you
intend to receive it. In addition, an estate investment
plan can help avoid probate proceedings, an often
long and expensive process that can open your financial matters to the public.
What is the difference between a will and a revocable living trust? Basically, a will is a legal document
that directs how your assets will be distributed among
family members, charities or others upon your death.
It is important to update a will periodically to reflect
any material or personal changes in your life.
A revocable living trust (RLT) is an entity, like a
corporation, that holds and owns your assets, while
you are alive and continues to hold your assets after
your death. Like a will, the RLT directs how your
assets will be distributed at your death, but because
ownership does not change at your death, it can do
so without the expense, delay or publicity of probate
court. A revocable living trust gives a trustee the right
to make decisions for you if you become incapacitated while a will has no effect until your death.
What is a durable power of attorney? Whether you
create a simple will or a revocable living trust, it is
important to have a durable power of attorney. A durable power of attorney is a document that designates
a person who can sign on your behalf and handle
your financial matters in the event of your incapacity.
A durable power of attorney becomes void at death.
Having a basic estate investment plan can help ease
stresses on your family, especially during a difficult
time. Your Financial Advisor, with the help of your
tax and legal advisors, can help you take necessary
steps today to ensure that your wishes are carried out
and that you and your loved ones have the peace of
mind you would want them to have.

‘Onion Made Goodness’
Pawleys Island Specialty Foods, the creators of Palmetto Cheese who
were featured recently in USA Today, announced the newest addition to
their product lineup: OMG! Onion Made Goodness, a caramelized onion
dip with a kick.
The dip, created by Pawleys Island natives Laura Tiller and Kelli Blair, is
loaded with real onions and big on flavor. It was created out of their love
for food and entertaining.
Laura, as a single mom of three boys, started a business making dinners
for friends and families out of her home kitchen. Kelli gave her a recipe
for a caramelized onion dip as a potential menu item. The caramelized onion dip became a regular offering and quickly became a favorite amongst
friends and locals. Based on this demand, the two friends decided to offer
the dip to local markets.
In June 2011, OMG! became available at Get Carried Away Southern
Takeout, a new business in Pawleys Island. This outlet features many local
products, and OMG! became one of the best selling items during the busy
tourist season. In order to keep up with demand, Laura and Kelli began to
produce OMG! in the kitchen of Get Carried Away after hours.
In an effort to expand OMG’s distribution, Laura and Kelli turned to Brian and Sassy Henry, owners of Get Carried Away Southern Takeout and
Pawleys Island Specialty Foods, a wholesale food producer based in Pawleys Island and the creators and marketers of a popular brand of pimento
cheese called Palmetto Cheese, The Pimento Cheese with Soul. They were
interested in the marketing expertise, production resources, and distribution channels established by the Henrys through the successful growth of
Palmetto Cheese. Consequently, Pawleys Island Specialty Foods acquired
an ownership interest of OMG in March.
OMG! will be marketed, distributed, and sold under the banner of Pawleys Island Specialty Foods and offered to grocery stores throughout the
Southeast, including all Piggly Wiggly stores.
Founded in 2006, Pawleys Island Specialty Foods continues to market
current, and identify new, products and assist them by offering production
resources, distribution channels, sales relationships, and brand marketing
expertise. Visit www.omgdip.com for more information.

Editorial/Opinion: something to think about this Easter
By Tim Callahan
It’s time to celebrate the Easter story.
But, is it fact or fiction?
Here are some things to consider to help you
decide if Jesus Christ was the main character in
a story designed to fool the masses into joining a
religious cult, or truly the Son of God:
A Jewish carpenter from a cult has a special day
for him 20 centuries after He died?
Why did Jesus not save himself from torture
and execution and back down from his claims
as the Son of God and that He needed die to repair man’s broken relationship with God? Why
would He die horribly for a lie?
Why would 12 men, His disciples, allow themselves to be tortured and die for a con?
How did 12 uneducated and stubborn men run
with a made up story and turn a Roman world
upside down in a matter of a few years?
Why have more than 5,000 full or partial copies of Scripture been found spanning 2,000 years
and yet they still tell the same stories. Why not
embellish? Take out or put in? Why not spice
it up? Why not downplay the bad parts? If you
were writing a book to con the masses would
you include Jesus’s agony in the garden? Peter’s denial? Thomas’s doubt? Judas’s betrayal?
The disciples’ fear, hiding in closed rooms after
Christ’s death? The disciples thick-headedness
that caused them to only really believe after they
saw the resurrected Christ. (He had been telling
and showing them who He was for the previous
Why would Paul run with a lie and subject him-
self to being beaten, whipped, stoned and left for
dead, chased through towns, jailed several times,
tortured and killed?
Why does anybody need a Savior? People are
basically good with a few bad apples thrown in,
right? (Well, have you’ve kept all the ten commandments? I haven’t.)
Why does anyone have to follow commandments? Think of your town, your state, your
country, your world without laws. Maybe they
are for our own protection and good, not to spoil
Was the world created out of nothing? A creation without a creator? If we are all here because gases exploded in a big bang, where did
the gases come from? Who made the gases?
If man is ever evolving, getting bigger and
stronger and smarter, why haven’t we seen drastic physical changes in man over the last several
thousand years. And why have there been more

history combined? Is that evolving?
Finally, why is Christianity the one religion
where God came down to man, and man doesn’t
have to work his way to God and paradise and
Jesus did the work for us on the cross. Remember the story of the thief on the cross recorded
in Luke 23:39-41? Jesus told him, “Today you
will be in paradise” because the dying man believed Jesus was who He said He was. The thief
had nothing to commend himself to God but Jesus. Didn’t Jesus simply say, as recorded in John
3:16: “He who believes in me shall not perish
but have everlasting life”?
What if the story is true? What if Jesus was who
He said He was? What if he was fully man and
fully God, died for our sins, and rose from the

Messenger wins state press awards
The Murrells Inlet Messenger won third place
for best newspaper publication in 2011 among
associate and individual members of the South
Carolina Press Association.
The Messenger’s first published book, “Murrells Inlet: Memories, Memoirs and Miracles,”
won first place for best innovative concept. Designer Nathan Kirk’s beautiful cover helped garner that award, along with 70 stories from the
past pages of the Messenger, including 22 local
business stories. The local businesses featured
also made the book idea a success as they preordered 20 copies apiece.
The Messenger came away with four awards,
matching 2010’s award totals, in a highly competitive environment as associate and individual
members have far fewer awards to compete for
than weekly and daily newspapers.
Editor/Publisher Tim Callahan also won third
place for best editorial/op ed, “What is the Burgess Community?” and third place for best feature story, an article on the Christian Counseling
Center’s Johnny DeLoache chance meeting with
basketball legend Pete Maravich.

Edward Jones: Earth Day lessons can apply to investors, too
April 22 is Earth Day. Started in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day is designed to
create awareness of the Earth’s environment and
to encourage conservation efforts. If you and
your family participate in Earth Day events, such
as helping clean up a local park or taking materials to a recycling center, you know the benefits
of doing your part to improve your surroundings.
But are you doing everything you can to upgrade
your environment for investing?
Actually, as an investor, you can learn a lot
from the lessons of Earth Day. Here are just a

Diversify. If you’re familiar with Earth Day,
you know that it involves multiple activities, including educational programs and do-it-now action steps. This variety is necessary because protecting our environment is a complex challenge.
Meeting your short- and long-term investment
goals can be challenging, too, but you’ll have
a better chance of success by diversifying your
investment dollars across a range of vehicles,
such as stocks, bonds, government securities and
certificates of deposit (CDs). Diversification can
help reduce the impact of volatility on your portfolio — and high volatility can be an obstacle
for some people trying to follow an investment
strategy. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss.)
Seek growth opportunities. Some people plant
trees on Earth Day, hoping to watch them grow
over the years. As an investor, you, too, need to
plant “seeds” today in the hopes of growth in
the future. That means, among other things, that
when you purchase growth-oriented investments
for the long term, you need to try to stick with
them and not “uproot” them after short-term declines in price.
Develop good habits. If you attend an Earth
Day program, you will learn about many ecofriendly habits you can develop, from using
energy-efficient light bulbs to recycling old
computers and other electronic devices. To invest successfully, it’s important to develop good
habits, such as staying invested in all types of
markets, seeking tax-advantaged investments
and reviewing your portfolio regularly to make
sure it’s still appropriate for your risk tolerance,
time horizon and long-term objectives.
Avoid “toxins.” At some Earth Day events,
you can learn about “green” substitutes for toxic
chemicals in common household cleaners. When
you invest, you may also want to avoid “toxins”
— or at least “toxic” behaviors, such as chasing
after “hot” stocks that are inappropriate for your
needs or trading so frequently that you run up
big fees, commissions and taxes.
Think long term. Above all else, Earth Day is a
reminder to us that we all want to leave a healthy
planet to future generations — which means we
need to make moves that are beneficial for the
environment over the long term. When you invest, you also need to focus on the future. That
means following a long-term investment strategy
and not getting sidetracked by short-term events,
such as political crises and economic downturns.
Earth Day comes once a year, but its lessons
can have a lasting impact on our environment.
When you apply these same lessons to your own
investment environment, you may be able to
achieve some healthy results.

The 2012 SCAA Inductees are:
Frank Morrison “Mickey” Spillane attained
mythical status in the
annals of popular fiction. Considered the
king of the pulp novelists in the post-WW
II period, he sold an
estimated 200 million
copies worldwide. By
1980, Spillane was the
author of seven of the top 15 all-time bestselling
fiction books in the U.S. Despite critical condemnation, Spillane explained the extraordinary
appeal of his novels with typical frankness: “I’m
a writer, not an author. The difference is a writer
Born in Brooklyn in 1918, Spillane moved to
Murrells Inlet in 1954. From 1983 until his death
in 2006, Spillane shared his waterfront home
with his third wife, Jane Rogers Johnson. The
house was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989
but was rebuilt.
After service in the Army Air Corps during
WWII, Spillane wrote “I, the Jury” in 19 days.
The novel sold 6.5 million copies in the United
States alone, and introduced Spillane’s most famous character, hardboiled detective Mike Hammer. Although tame by current standards, his
novels featured more sex than competing titles,
and the violence was more overt than the usual
detective story. The Hammer novels spawned
two television series and multiple movies. He re-
ceived an Edgar Allan Poe Grand Master Award
After his death, his friend and literary executor,
Max Allan Collins, began the task of editing and
completing new books and reprints.
Franklin Burroughs (b.1942, Conway, S.C.),
is the Harrison King McCann Research Professor of the English Language Emeritus at Bowdoin College where he has taught for 30 years.
A graduate of the University of the South, he
earned M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at Harvard.
Burroughs writes eloquently about the natural
history of his childhood home in Horry County
and his adult home in Maine. His work has been
honored with a National Endowment for the Arts
fellowship, an Editor’s Prize from the Sewannee
Review, and the Cecil Woods, Jr. Award for creative nonfiction. He lives in Maine.
Marian Wright Edelman (b.1939, Bennettsville, S.C.) is the founder and president of the
Children’s Defense Fund (CDF).
She has received numerous awards, including
the Albert Schweitzer Humanitarian Prize, the
Heinz Award, a MacArthur Foundation Prize
Fellowship, the Presidential Medal of Freedom
and the Robert F. Kennedy Lifetime Achievement Award for her writings.
Charles W. Joyner (b.1934, Myrtle Beach,
S.C.) is Distinguished Professor of Southern
History and Culture Emeritus at Coastal Carolina University. He also taught at the University
of California, Berkeley, the University of Mississippi and the University of Alabama. He was
an associate of the DuBois Center at Harvard

Brenda Varnum, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Murrells Inlet, recently attended the Edward Jones' "Women's Leadership Forum" at the firm's headquarters in St. Louis.
The leadership forum, held to recognize successful female Edward Jones financial advisors, provided Varnum with advanced training and networking
opportunities in which she shared business-building strategies with her colleagues.
"I found this forum extremely beneficial, particularly when we heard from firm leadership about how important it is that Edward Jones be an inclusive
firm and meet the needs of the diverse communities we serve," said Varnum.
"This forum gave us the opportunity to learn best practices, business-building ideas and strategies that have helped these financial advisors achieve a
certain level of success and better serve their clients," said Amy Williams, a former Edward Jones financial advisor who now is responsible for the
Women's Leadership Forum. "We can now document these ideas and use them to support other financial advisors as they provide excellent client
Firm leadership found the forum beneficial for both clients and associates.
Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm's business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which
they live and work. The firm's 12,000-plus financial advisors work directly with nearly 7 million clients to understand their personal goals -- from college
savings to retirement -- and create long-term investment solutions that emphasize a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy. Edward Jones
embraces the importance of building long-term, face-to-face relationships with clients, helping them to understand and make sense of the investment
options available today.

Joyner is perhaps best known for his book
“Down by the Riverside: A South Carolina Slave
Community” (University of Illinois Press, 1984).
It won the National University Press Book Award
and has been called “the finest work ever written
on American slavery.”
Among his many awards, he won the South
Carolina Humanities Council Governor’s Award
for Lifetime Achievement in the Humanities. In
addition to his writing and teaching, Joyner has
produced award-winning films and television
and radio programs about the South. Most recently, he co-edited (with Vernon Burton) Gale’s
new “Slavery & Anti-Slavery Transnational Archive,” an acclaimed four-part digital series.

Sam’s brother-in-law, Ray Abbott, started
working at Wayside with Sam around 1967 and
he went on to open the Ship’s Log Restaurant
with Mike Strickland in Garden City in 1980.
The kitchen was usually staffed with eight to
nine people on busy days, including a fry cook, a
broiler cook, a couple prep folks, a couple dishwashers, a breader, and a salad girl. Some of the
kitchen help included Joe Pickett, Mary Herriott,
Viney Judge, Betty Jo Holmes, Vermell Sands,
Daisy Grate, Viola Carr, Ellen Carr, Sarah Gary,
Mary Lena Sparkman and Debbie Sparkman.

Wayne Ammons, Clebe McClary, Jimmy Strickland and Glenn Ammons.
A menu from the Wayside Restaurant in the early 1960’s included a Deluxe Shore Dinner (clam
chowder, shrimp cocktail, fried fish, scallops,
oysters, shrimp, deviled crab, lobster tail, cole
slaw, French fries, ice cream, and tea or coffee)
for the princely sum of
$3, or the smaller Seafood Platter for $1.50.
