The 11th hour of
the 11th day of the 11th month
By MARSHA GUERARD, editor
11, 2010 -- I can't help thinking on Veterans Day of the two veterans
I knew best: my dad and my brother.
served in the Army Air Corps during World War II, a tail gunner.
He was small and wiry, a perfect fit for folding himself into that
tiny, exposed bubble hanging below the back of the plane for flights
over Italy. Those flights took him farther than he'd ever imagined
from his home in tiny Cumberland Gap in the coal mining region at
the border of Kentucky and Tennessee.
big brother was a Marine and volunteered to serve a tour in Vietnam
soon after graduating from high school in Cincinnati. He wanted
to get it out of the way -- waiting to be drafted would have meant
a longer tour anyway.

my dad, he traveled farther than he'd ever imagined to end up in
Vietnam. He came back whole, but never the same. He became an accountant,
married and had two children, divorced. He died in an accident at
36 while working in Saudi Arabia.
I visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.,
I think about how, in a way, my brother's name could be etched there
-- because the boy I knew never returned from Vietnam, really.
Veterans Day holiday began as Armistice Day in 1919, commemorating
the time one year earlier when fighting ceased between the United
States and Germany on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the
eleventh month. Congress changed the name in 1954 to Veterans Day,
to honor not only those who fought in World War I, but in World
War II and all the nation's wars.
Kenneth A. Brooks in his Army Air Corps
of the local Veterans Day observances took place this past weekend.
But if you'd like to stop for a moment today and honor those who've
served our nation throughout its history, Patriots Point Naval &
Maritime Museum is opening a portrait exhibit to highlight veterans
in all branches of the service. The ship is open from 9 a.m. to
6:30 p.m., and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., guests will have the opportunity
to meet veterans who served in World War II through the Vietnam
War eras, as well as veterans who were photographed for the project
and a group of the photographers who participated in the project.
All will be on the ship to answer questions and discuss their work
and life stories.
Today on Veterans Day, museum admission is free for veterans and
active duty military. Normal rates apply for other guests. The exhibit
will be onboard the USS Yorktown through the winter holidays.

dad, my brother and all of the veterans who have served this nation.

we really need a little Christmas -- right this very minute?
By ANN THRASH, contributing editor
11, 2010 - There it was on TV on the morning of Nov. 1, a few short
hours after Halloween: the first holiday commercial of the 2010
season. It was for a product that I'm sure says "Season's Greetings!"
to you as much as it does to me: Pampers.
the same ad they used last year (and maybe the year before) -- babies
sleeping to the barely sung, almost-whispered tune of "Silent
Night." Verily, I say unto thee: Nothing says "sleep in
heavenly peace" like a dry diaper.
hours, there were more such holiday-oriented commercials, largely
from national merchants such as Home Depot and Overstock.com ("Ho,
ho, ho, the big, big O, Overstock-dot-com," to the tune of
rush to the holidays drives me crazy, annually. It briefly crossed
my mind to start a Facebook page called "I Refuse to Patronize
Any Business That Runs Holiday Ads Before the Week of Thanksgiving."
Wouldn't you know it, there actually IS a page called "Holiday
Commercials Should Be Played ONLY During the Holidays." But
as I was on the verge of "friending" it, it occurred to
me: Lighten up, Ann. Those advertising dollars, whether spent on
TV, online or in print publications, do get people out to shop for
deals, and that's good for the economy.
is two weeks from today, Hanukkah starts at sundown in three weeks,
and Christmas is six weeks from Saturday. So the reality is that
"the holidays," broadly speaking, are here. If you think,
"Well, not quite yet," realize this: The annual Festival
of Lights at James Island County Park kicks off tomorrow at 5:30
p.m. If you live in that neck of the woods and are dreading the
traffic tie-ups that are likely to increase in the weeks ahead,
just remind yourself that the festival has become a regional tourist
draw, and those folks will be leaving some cash behind in Charleston
County before heading home.
holidays are indeed good business for the Lowcountry. Several years
ago, the Charleston Convention and Visitor's Bureau set up a great
Web site devoted to holiday activities and promotions around
town. You've gotta love the slogan of the "Christmas in Charleston"
campaign: "Sleigh bells ring, children sing and Santa has a
tan." The campaign is working, too: Witness that Charleston
got a plug in this month's Travel & Leisure magazine as one
of "the Best Places to Spend the Holidays."
you're still having trouble getting your jingle bells on, like I
was, maybe you just need a little nudge. Here are a few happenings
coming up between now and Thanksgiving to get you in the holiday
state of mind. To be honest, I still need a little convincing myself
-- so I might see you out there.
19-20: Charleston's Holiday Market,
North Charleston Area Convention Center. Specialty shops, boutiques,
arts and crafts, seasonal stuff, toys, etc. Santa will be there,
too, for photos with the kids.
20: Towne Centre Christmas Tree Lighting,
6 p.m. in front of Belk. Other than the tree-lighting at the Festival
of Lights on Friday night, this might be the earliest such event
in the Lowcountry.
21: Hospice Candlelight Memorial Service, 5:30 p.m., Colonial
Lake. Much different than the other events mentioned here, this
candlelight service is a moving memorial that ultimately brings
a message of hope to those who attend. At the ceremony, luminaries
are arrayed around Colonial Lake in honor of those who have passed
away. The individuals' names are printed on the luminaries, and
if you reserve one by Nov. 15, your loved one's name also will
be printed in a program that's handed out at the service. The
short memorial service includes music, readings, and quiet time
for thought. Go to the Hospice
of Charleston Web site for more information. Contributions
for luminaries will support Hospice's efforts to expand access
for low-income, uninsured patients; to support bereaved families
with communitywide events such as the candlelight memorial and
a camp for bereaved children; and community education.

Delays stretching to three years
PETER LUCASH, contributing editor
11, 2010 - The Charleston plant may be ready soon, but industry
publications are reporting that Boeing is telling its customers
that the 787 Dreamliner will be delayed further, making the project
three years behind schedule- - and costing Boeing a small fortune
in penalties to customers and lost orders.
Week, the leading industry publication, reports that Boeing
has told customers there will be more delays for the new plane in
addition to those already announced. More.
magazine reports that Korean Air has been told to expect a 10-month
delay into 2012. Boeing has denied the report, and says that it
will still deliver the first plane in the first quarter of 2011
to All Nippon Airways. The report suggests that the ramp-up of production
will be slower than planned, which could explain the delays in later
the electrical problem on Tuesday resulting in smoke in the cabin
- and a declared emergency -- does not help matters. Stay tuned.

Church tied to education in South Carolina
escape racial discrimination in Philadelphia's Methodist Church,
Richard Allen, a former slave, organized the African Methodist Episcopal
Church there in 1787. It is the oldest African American religious
denomination and existed mainly in the North before the Civil War.
denomination's origins in South Carolina date to 1818. In 1817 the
attempt of white Methodists in Charleston to control the activities
of black church members precipitated a mass exodus of 4,367 from
the church. The following year many went on to establish the African
Church, which was affiliated with the AME denomination. At this
time Charleston's membership was second only to that of Philadelphia,
and it was the southernmost branch of the denomination. Suspicious
of its northern connections and the autonomy the church represented,
white authorities routinely harassed its members. Church leaders'
involvement in the 1822 Denmark Vesey slave conspiracy led to destruction
of the church and dispersal of its membership.
1863 the church was reestablished in South Carolina when the first
AME missionaries, the Reverends James Lynch and James Hall, began
their operations in and around Port Royal, Edisto, and Beaufort.
On May 15, 1865, in Charleston, Bishop Daniel Payne organized the
South Carolina Conference, which originally also included North
Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. African Methodism grew rapidly and
was black Carolinians' second largest denomination at the end of
the century. In 1880 with 300,000 primarily southern members, the
first bishops for the South were elected. All had important ties
to South Carolina.
Methodism promoted education, and churches frequently housed secular
and Sunday schools. To raise the educational level of ministers,
Payne Institute was established in Cokesbury in 1870. Relocating
to Columbia in 1880, the school was renamed Allen University and
was the first college controlled by African Americans in the state.
South Carolinians were also in the forefront of the denomination's
missionary efforts. In 1878 the AME Liberian Mission Church headed
by the Rev. Santania Flegler departed Charleston with the Liberian
Exodus participants. Bishop Henry McNeal Turner's efforts organized
the denomination in Sierra Leone and Liberia in 1891 and southern
Africa in 1896. In 2004 one-third of the denomination's 3.5 million
members were Africans and the church was growing most rapidly in
western and southern Africa. South Carolina, which constitutes the
Seventh Episcopal District, had the third largest membership of
the church's 19 districts.
"the Gospel of Freedom," African Methodist ministers have
played important roles as secular leaders. Between 1868 and 1876
seven AME ministers were elected to the South Carolina state legislature.
Church leaders used their offices to articulate community grievances
and to protest against lynching and racial discrimination. In 1948
the Reverend Joseph DeLaine organized black parents against racial
discrimination in Clarendon County's public schools. The resulting
litigation was one of the cases decided in the U.S. Supreme Court's
famous Brown v. Board of Education decision. The mission of the
church has always been broadly based, and its resources have been
deployed to address a range of social problems, including HIV-AIDS,
health-care disparities, affordable housing, and foster care.

Event on Nov. 15. Since she's talking about what blocks women's
wisdom in the workplace, we thought we'd ask her how to demolish
those roadblocks. Here's her response:
As women strive
to use their leadership talents, they often are playing on an unequal
field of power and influence. The adaptation to a more masculine
style and the energy drain that comes from trying to get and keep
your voice in the room make it imperative that women learn to balance
your attitude about power.
Do you sidestep visibility and recognition when they come your
way? Or can you, even if uncomfortable, say "yes" to
the credit others are trying to give you? Say "yes."
by knowing and responding to others' interests while keeping your
own needs clearly in mind. Does the other want recognition? Connection?
Success? You can help provide that. In exchange, what do you want
from the other? Tell people. Remember the workplace is based on
a strong network
of women colleagues and friends. Use the network. Call others
and tell them what you want and need and ask for their help. Solicit
their support in meetings so you can speak your wisdom.
women and men mentors

Others can help open the way for you. In turn, notice who you
and notice women role models.
How do they gain influence? Communicate confidence? Sometimes
you just have to act confident until you feel confident. Remember
that women connect and nurture each other to relieve stress. Keep
