PLEASE JOIN THE Friends of the McCormick Library on August 17 at 6:30 pm
as they host South Carolina author Stephen Patterson. Patterson will talk about his
novel The King’s Last Ride. The book takes the reader on an adventure to Memphis,
Tennessee in August of 1977 when fans of Elvis Presley were stunned to learn of his
death. How could the King of Rock ’n’ Roll possibly be dead? When it came time
for his funeral, many had questions that would remain unanswered, only adding
to the rumors and speculation that the news was a cruel joke. The funeral was
celebratory and tragic, but was it real?

Stephen Patterson discovered his love for music and music history while working
in radio. The King’s Last Ride is his second book and first novel. He lives in Chapin
with his wife and children.

The presentation will begin at 6:30pm at the McCormick County Library. Books
will be available for purchase and signing.•

SLV RjOoiDn&s withGUN CLUB



FOR THE SECOND year the SLV Rod & Gun Club Fishing Committee
was asked to take the 4H kids out fishing. They spent the day Monday
learning how to make plastic worms, took casting lessons and were taught
how to tie fishing knots on hooks & lures by Jamie Pohlman and her team
from the Clemson University Extension.

On Tuesday we all met at the Dorn boat ramp. Boats were provided
by Dave Kelley, Josh Sandt and Bob Vose. Everyone met at the crack of
dawn (6:00 am) for a morning of fishing. All of the kids had a great time
with every child catching several fish. Along with the captains there was a
Clemson advisor in each boat. We also had 3 additional volunteers that knew
the lake well and they put us on fish almost immediately and we caught fish
and practiced catch & release up until the time we called it quits for the day.
As we released the strippers a few died but the kids had a great experience
seeing the eagles dive down, pick up fish and take back to their nest, so
no fish were wasted and the cycle of life was completed. The volunteers
helped the kids bait the hooks, take fish off of the hook etc., and they also
contributed 9 dozen blue herring for bait. So a big thanks to Jack Alfredson,
John Hofman and Dave Tuttle.

The 4H members participating included: Hunter Barnes, Alex Brown,
Jon Cason, Jordan Chamberlain, Kendall Long, Layla Maston, Eli McKay,
Jax Reichert and Larry Smith.

I want to send a big thanks out to the boat captains, (for them using their
boats and their fishing gear) along with the Clemson advisors and ALL our

JDLHS Look to Transition


A GROUP OF 25 brainstormed for close to three hours in June on
ideas to transition John de la Howe School into an agricultural education
program. The meeting took place on the John de la Howe campus and
included local and state leaders, agricultural education instructors, public
educators, Clemson Extension officials along with staff and trustees of the
220-year-old school. Input was shared as John de la Howe prepares to seek
proposals for a feasibility study that would be submitted to the school’s
trustees to determine what agricultural education programs could be offered
on the 1,200 acre campus, plus what types of students could be served. The
JDLHS trustees will report the findings, including costs and a five-year-plan
for the proposed transition, to the South Carolina Senate Finance Committee
and House Ways and Means Committee by December 1. Currently, John
de la Howe serves children from across South Carolina with behavioral,
academic and family challenges, providing them with a safe place to heal,
grow and make lasting changes.•

Runs the RapidsOutdoorAdventureClub

OUR AREA IS full of so many outdoor adventures for Savannah Lakes
residents to explore and enjoy! The Outdoor Adventure Club recently took
advantage of one of those resources by driving a short hour and fifteen
minutes to Bowman, Georgia. Nestled in the rolling foothills, the Broad
River offers a great beginner experience to kayaking in whitewater. There
are two outfitters along this section of river who will provide you with a
kayak, paddle, PFD, and shuttle service for a very reasonable price.
On June 14, thirteen brave souls, of all different levels of experience,
took the journey down the river for a full day of fun including a lunch break
on a rocky shoal. We all got sufficiently wet,
which was a great bonus on a warm summer day.
“This is an Everyone learned a lot about how to “read the

the trip. Levels can fluctuate greatly with rain
amounts and can make the river go from being unable to navigate at all in
late summer, to rising up into Class III and IV rapids in the early spring. The
Broad river in Georgia eventually empties into Lake Thurmond just below
the Lake Russell Dam on the northern end of our lake. Early June seems
to be the best time to hit the water at just the right level and temperature,
but with all the recent rain that has begun to recharge our reservoir, the
whitewater season may extend longer this year. Check it out.
If you discover a local adventure that you would like to share, the Outdoor
Adventure Club is always looking for new outings to add into our calendar
of events.•

Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among
robbers, who stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by
chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him he passed by on the other
side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other
side. But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was; and when he saw him, he had
compassion, and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; then he set
him on his own beast and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the next day he
took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him; and whatever
more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ Which of these three, do you think,
proved neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed
mercy on him.” And Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”•

Pets of the Month


THEY CALL ME Tipsy and despite my name, I do not have a substance abuse problem (catnip
excluded). I am a mellow kitty who is equally content flying solo as communing with other
friendly cats. I cannot comment on dogs as I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting one
in person. Perhaps a laid back pooch with good breath and limited drool would be OK. We
can give it a shot. My birthday is 3/19/14, I have all my vaccinations and motherhood is but a
fond memory. I am ready to settle down in a loving home and look forward to meeting you
and your lap.


MY NAME IS Nova and not to brag but I was voted “most favorite dog to walk” at the shelter
that has cared for me while I’m waiting for my furever home. I guess that’s because I am so
easy- breezy and like to be with people. I also adore treats and being loved on. I know a trick
or two and am ready to add to my repertoire. I am a healthy 55 pounds and 3 years young. All
the details have been taken care of for you – shots –spaying – even micro-chipped so we will
never lose each other. The only thing missing is you. What are we waiting for?•

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. • August 2017 • 27

Complete care,
close to home.

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;
and, together, we are able to offer both general services and the extra skill associated with a specialist.
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
an orthopedic specialist, Orthopaedic 1-877(-2262693-B) ONE
Associates of the Lakelands is local
healthcare worth asking for.

Board certified orthopedic surgeons.
