Savannah Valley Trail Donation Boxes

ON AUGUST 12, the donation boxes for the Savannah
Valley Trail that Kevin Freeland, son of Allen and Judy of
McCormick designed and made as his Eagle Scout project
were installed. Kevin who is a senior at Wardlaw Academy
in Edgefield has a long history of scouting. He first became
a cub scout in the 3rd grade, then becoming a Weblo in 5th
grade. This was a year long project that he designed and built
with some assistance from his fellow scouts from Troop 911 in
Greenwood. Kevin will be reviewed by the Scout Board and
will be recognized at a Court of Honor for his achievement.
At the ceremony his parents will both receive pins. In his free
time, Kevin enjoys shooting sporting clays and will go straight
into the airforce after graduation. The donation boxes will be
a great asset to the trail which is funded entirely by donations.
The SVT board will have a booth at the Gold Rush Festival in
September and hope to see you there!!•

keep in mind that although some swim aids
look like PFDs, swim aids are NOT PFDs
in several aspects.

First, swim aids provide the swimming
child with additional floatation only.In
contrast, a Coast Guard approved PFD not
only provides additional floatation, but also
has the floatation distributed to keep the
child’s head above water.The necessity for
this is obvious.

Second, an approved PFD has more
secure zippers, buckles and straps that, if
the PFD is properly worn, will stay on the
child if the child hits the water with some
impact.To make sure the PFD is properly
worn, tighten the straps firmly, and pick up
the child by the PFD.If the child does not
slip down so their chin does not touch the
PFD, then the straps are adjusted properly.

Third, and of personal economic
importance, the South Carolina (and
Georgia) Department of Natural Resources
requires approved PFDs and does not
recognize swim aids as approved PFDs.
This is quite clear if you unzip a swim aid
and read the warning on the inside; “Use
Only Under Competent Supervision/ Not
To Be Used In Boating.”If you examine the
label of an approved PFD, then you will
find the Coast Guard approval number and
the acceptable weight range of the user.•

The left Stearns Glow Bug is a Coast Guard
approved PFD where as the blue Speedo on
the right is a swim aid. Notice that although
the two look similar, the PFD has more
floatation in the shoulders and stronger
straps and buckles. • September 2017 • 21

every Wisdom from Dr. Benjamin Mays

Welcome to by REV. KINSLER
Lutheran Church By The Lake
ith the recent events in Charlottesville VA and
Highway 378 & Twelve Oaks Drive the continued American struggle with race
relationships in our great nation, I would like to
Sunday Morning - 8:15 & 10:15am share some wisdom from Dr. Benjamin Mays.
Sunday School Adults - 9:15am Dr. Mays was born in 1894 in Greenwood
County. During his formative years he spent a
Youth Fellowship Wednesday - 4:15pm significant amount of time in McCormick SC.
Dr. Mays earned a Ph D. from the University
Pastor Jim Kinsler of Chicago in 1934 and was President of
864-391-3000 Morehouse College in Atlanta from 1940 to 1967. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a graduate of Morehouse, remembered Dr. Mays as his “spiritual mentor” and
“intellectual father.” Throughout his career Dr. Mays received 56 honorary
“Building relationships with God and neighbors” degrees, published 2000 articles and wrote nine books. In his 1957 book,
Good Shepherd Catholic Church Seeking to be Christian in Race Relations, he states:
“But no belief in God is adequate unless it is a belief in a universal God; who
Invites you to attend services is a God of justice, mercy, and love. God cannot be a racial nor a national god.
Wed & Fri - 9am God cannot be a class god. God must be god for all peoples. The God whom
Sat - 5 pm Christians worship is that kind of God -- a universal God, a God of every nation,
Sun - 11 am race, and clan. When we lose sight of this fact, only a god of a particular nation,
culture, or race is left.
The Rev. Robert Sayer, pastor “This light broke upon Peter in his experience with Cornelius when
Confessions: Sat 3:30 - 4:30 he exclaimed: ‘You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a Jew
Hwy 221 North, McCormick to associate with or to visit any one of another nation; but God has
shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean... Truly I
852-4722 perceive that god shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who
fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.’ Acts 10:28,34-35.
“The light broke upon the Apostle Paul when he smashed the bonds
of the law and discovered that God was God for peoples and said: ‘For
in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of
you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither
Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither make nor
female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus’ Galatians 3:26-28.
The true Christian can believe in no other kind of God. In dealing
with people, Christians see them first as human beings, children of one
God, and second as members of a particular nation or race.”
One of most significant teachings of Jesus concerning our relationship with
others came about when his disciples asked him to teach them to pray. In
Matthew 6:9 and Luke 11:2 our Lord instructs us to begin our prayers to God
with this simpleaddress, “Our Father.” First, this address reveals the nature of
our relationship with God. God is our Father, and we are the children of God.•

Pets of the Month


OK, maybe “hate” is a bit strong, but I must state firmly that I am not a big fan of felines. I’ve

heard many stories of innocent dogs framed by something the evil cat did. Just saying.
But I digress. My name is “Roxy,” and I’m a 2-year-old 55-pound bundle of joy. I love sitting

on laps and cuddling. I am quite intelligent (that’s the Labrador in me) andhad professional
training at PetSmart. I like to play and wrestle with other dogs but prefer a laid back dog that
is happy to be my side kick. I am a great listener, and treats make my tail do the happy dance.
I am spayed, micro chipped and vaccinated. So pretty much I’m the total package. The only
thing missing here is you!


MY NAME IS Elke, and I am about half way through my nine lives. I was what they call a
“TNR” (trap-neuter-return) kitty living outdoors and enjoying the free food the good people
of the Humane Society of McCormick County left for us. But life on the streets can be tough;
and when it became too unsafe to live under the stars, I was brought to the shelter. And
clearly I was meant to be an indoor kitty! I love people and being pampered with a session of
brushing and stroking. You already know I’m spayed; and at 3 years young, I am fully grown.
However, many lives I have left; and I’d love to spend them all with someone special to call
my own. Let’s give love a chance!

Please leave a message at 864-391-2349 or email us at if you are interested in learning more about our available dogs and cats.

We are local surgeons who live and practice full-time in the Lakelands community. We care for all our
patients here at the region’s largest referral hospital. You and your family members don’t need to
travel out of town. As your hometown orthopedist, we are proud to serve you and your physician when
surgery is needed.

High-quality and safe care for our patients is our highest priority at Self Regional. In addition, you have
access to a wide array of specialists, normally only available in much larger, metropolitan areas.

Our surgeons are board certified and several have received fellowship training in a subspecialty area;

Our subspecialties include:

• Minimally invasive surgery
• Arthroscopic surgery

(microscopic joint surgery)
• Hand, foot and shoulder surgery
• Sports medicine
• Total joint replacement

When your physician recommends Nonereefdeerdra. l

Associates of the Lakelands is local
healthcare worth asking for.
