FLAGS UNFURLED:
A long line of flags seems to honor Memorial Day by snapping to attention in the wind along the walkway to the Yorktown on Sunday morning at Patriots Point. The maritime museum will mark Memorial Day today with a 9 a.m. ceremony at which retired U.S. Marine Corps Col. Myron Harrington will speak about sacrifice. See the calendar for details.

TODAY'S FOCUS
Health care law impacts insurance for 2010 college grads

By REESE McFADDIN
President, Workplace Benefits
Reprinted with permission

Editor's note: May and June's graduates are probably thinking about kicking back and relaxing for a little while now that classes are out, but their parents might have their minds on some of the financial issues that arise with a graduation, including what it all means for the student's health insurance. Reese McFaddin, owner of Workplace Benefits on Daniel Island, wrote a recent blog post on what the new health insurance reform legislation means for parents and students. We thank her for letting us reprint it today.

MAY 31, 2010 -- It's May and for many young people it's graduation time! College graduation is a huge accomplishment and an exciting time. But for me, all I remember is being scared to death. I did not want to leave my friends and certainly was not ready for the grown-up world, which was defined by my father saying, "It's time to get off the payroll."


McFaddin

As if getting off the payroll and graduation weren't daunting and depressing enough, many of us also had to quickly scramble to find health insurance within weeks of graduation. Our only options were finding a job or purchasing an individual policy.

Now that health reform is the law of the land, a college-age child will be able to stay on his or her parents' plan until age 26. As it stands now, this will be in effect beginning September 23, 2010.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina and United Healthcare are ahead of the curve and are allowing young adults in this category to be covered on their parents' plan (individual or group) effective June 1, 2010.

As mentioned before in a previous blog post, this guideline is only defined as being under the age 26, and the young adult does not have to be in school. The IRS has not further defined "dependent." In other words, the law doesn't mention anything about the dependent having a job, being married, or being supported with "X" amount paid per month.

Things to consider if you have a graduate in the family:

  • Do you have one child already on your employer plan? If so, it's probably more cost effective for all of your dependent children to stay on your policy.

  • Is this is your last or only dependent child? Then an individual plan might be a better financial option, as it is cheaper and the child can keep it past the age of 26 (regardless of marital or job status). However, if your child has pre-existing health issues, then staying on your group plan will be best.

Congratulations, 2010 graduates, on the next chapter of life -- and being able to stay on the payroll until you are 26! Please keep in mind, the points on this blog post are subject to change and may be interpreted differently by the IRS and the insurance carriers. This is just a general outline from what we tentatively know right now.

Recent poll still has us scratching our heads
By ANDY BRACK, publisher

MAY 31, 2010 - With about a week before the primaries, a new InsiderAdvantage/ Statehouse Report poll still has us flummoxed.


Brack

The poll, taken the night following the May 25 headline-grabbing accusations that GOP Rep. Nikki Haley had an extramarital affair with a blogger in 2007, showed voters still preferred her over three male opponents. Of the respondents who said they would vote in the Republican primary, just over 30 percent said they'd cast ballots for Haley, compared to 20 percent for Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and 14 percent each for U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett and Attorney General Henry McMaster.

With South Carolina being such a "family values" state, it's tough to explain why Haley would keep the lead. Either Republican respondents weren't overly concerned about the allegations involving Haley or they had not had enough time on the night the poll was taken to process what the allegations of impropriety meant.

Or maybe the folks being surveyed were sick of the smarmy side of politics. Just look at how they responded when asked whether they would be more or less likely to vote for a candidate accused of having an extramarital affair. Some 18 percent said they'd actually be more likely to vote for someone who had an affair - certainly a response that is counterintuitive in this conservative state.

Regardless of the truth of the allegations involving Haley, her campaign ought to worry a little because 45 percent of respondents said they wouldn't vote for or would be less likely to vote for a candidate who faced allegations of an affair.

An old rule of politics is that perception is more important than reality. In the days ahead, if the Haley campaign can't corral this scandal, it might end up having a lot of problems.

Other results of the poll found Democratic Sen. Vincent Sheheen of Camden leading in his party's primary for governor. Of those who said they'd vote in the Democratic primary, 26 picked Sheheen and 17 percent tapped state Superintendent Jim Rex. Charleston Sen. Robert Ford nabbed 12 percent. Some 45 percent of voters said they didn't know who they'd vote for or had no opinion. In other words, two weeks out, the election was wide open.

The race for lieutenant governor was an even bigger wild card. In a four-way GOP field, former Mount Pleasant Sen. Larry Richter had 16 percent. Others in the field: Florence councilman Ken Ard (13.7 percent); Orangeburg lawyer Bill Connor (11.3 percent) and Columbia businesswoman Eleanor Kitzman (5.1 percent). Some 53.6 percent of those polled had no opinion or didn't know who they would pick on June 8.

Other highlights of the InsiderAdvantage/Statehouse Report poll:

  • Wrong direction. South Carolina is headed in the wrong direction, according to 50.2 percent of respondents. One-fourth said it was heading in the right direction. Another quarter said they had no opinion. The results from the May 25 poll are dramatically different from a December InsiderAdvantage/Statehouse Report poll in which 39 percent of respondents said the state was headed in the wrong direction.

  • Mine, not yours. South Carolinians tend to think their legislators do a better job than the legislature as a whole. Almost half of respondents (49.5 percent) rated state legislators as a whole as below average or failing. But only 34.4 percent said the state legislators for their district were below average or failing. Conversely, 26.8 percent graded their legislators as outstanding or good, compared to 15.4 percent of respondents who rated all legislators as outstanding or good.

Mt. Pleasant ER nurse honored for Adopt-A-Highway work

An Emergency Department nurse from East Cooper Medical Center has picked up an award for his efforts to keep the Lowcountry clean. Jeff Hunter, RN, was recognized with an Adopt-A-Highway Award at the annual Community Pride Luncheon earlier this month. Community Pride is a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental stewardship among all citizens of Charleston County.


Hunter

What started as a simple healthy activity to promote his overall wellness turned into a personal endeavor on Hunter's part to create a cleaner and greener community. "A couple of years ago, I got on a health kick and began to walk to work," he said. "I noticed a ton of garbage on the road and decided to adopt a road and pick up trash while on my way to the hospital."

Hunter adopted Bowman Road as part of the Adopt-a-Highway program. More recently, he has adopted Mount Pleasant's Hospital Drive, where East Cooper Medical Center is located. He will patrol both Hospital Drive and Bowman Road for the next two years.

"We are very proud of Jeff and happy our community acknowledges his efforts to beautify our neighborhoods. He also works very hard in the emergency room, always with a smile," says Janie Sinacore-Jaberg, CEO of the hospital. "He's a special human being, and we're very lucky to have him as part of our family."

Vintage kitchen items to be offered at culinary group's sale

Vintage cookbooks, silver serviceware and linens will be among the offerings at the annual Culinary Tag Sale sponsored by the Charleston chapter of Les Dames D'Escoffier, a worldwide philanthropic society of professional women leaders in the fields of food, fine beverages, and hospitality.

SC ENCYCLOPEDIA
Medal of Honor recipients

Approved by the United States Congress in 1862, the Medal of Honor is America's highest award for military valor. Thirty native South Carolinians have been awarded the medal for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity" above that of their comrades in arms. On rare occasions the Medal of Honor has been awarded for individual exploits taking place in peacetime. Among them is Shipfitter First Class George Huber Wheeler of Charleston, who received the award for extraordinary heroism during a fire at Coquimbo, Chile, on January 20, 1909.

The first South Carolinian to receive the award during military action was Ernest A. Garlington of Newberry, who earned the honor for "distinguished gallantry" against the Sioux Indians at the Battle of Wounded Knee on December 29, 1890. Early in the following century, naval surgeon Middleton Stuart Elliott of Beaufort and Commander William A. Moffett of Charleston each received the decoration during hostilities against Mexican forces at Vera Cruz in April 1914.

Eight South Carolinians were awarded the medal during World War I, including three who made the supreme sacrifice. Six recipients were members of the 118th Infantry, which received more Medals of Honor than any other regiment in the American Expeditionary Forces. Among them was Providence native Corporal James D. Heriot of the Thirtieth Division. Heriot made a lone thirty-yard dash against a German machine gun nest and forced the team to surrender, only to fall himself later that day. In 1991 the sisters of Corporal Freddie Stowers of Anderson County were presented a posthumous award for his extraordinary courage while attempting to destroy a machine gun that had pinned down his men during World War I. Stowers was the only African American from the war awarded the medal.

While serving in Nicaragua between the world wars, Marine Corporal Donald L. Truesdale of Lugoff saved the lives of the members of his patrol by shielding them from the shock of an errant grenade on April 24, 1932. During World War II five South Carolinians were awarded the medal for courage and self-sacrifice. Marine Sergeant Robert A. Owens of Greenville made a charge against a well-placed Japanese gun that was wreaking havoc on American landing operations in the Solomon Islands on November 1, 1943. His sacrifice silenced the gun and paved the way for a successful invasion.

During fighting in the Korean War, three of the four South Carolina recipients were presented the honor posthumously. The fourth, Marine Staff Sergeant Robert Sidney Kennemore of Greenville, miraculously survived the blast of a grenade on which he had thrown himself to protect his platoon. Seven native South Carolinians were awarded the Medal of Honor during American involvement in Vietnam. The last Medal of Honor action of the Vietnam War occurred on Halloween night 1972, when Greenville native Petty Officer First Class Michael Edwin Thornton saved the life of his team leader Lieutenant Thomas Norris. Thornton's is the rare case of one Medal of Honor recipient receiving the award for saving the life of another recipient.
