as her name. Sugar is an ambassador in her little community, checking
on others as she collects cans to recycle. Not seeing her own
needs, she reaches others with a smile. Without the watchful eyes
of her volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers, Sugar's need may have
gone unnoticed until it was too late.
an eviction notice appeared on the door of Sugar's dilapidated
home in an isolated section of Mount Pleasant, S.C. The house
had fallen into disrepair and a sapling had sprouted under the
floorboards and grown into a tree in her front room. When the
house was condemned, Sugar faced being uprooted from the community
she loved. Two very special volunteers could not let that happen.
Undaunted by the challenge of finding inexpensive housing, they
went door to door looking for options. They negotiated with the
landlord of a mobile home park, rehabilitated an empty trailer,
and found secondhand furnishings. Now they continue to deliver
healthy meals to Sugar in a home that is safe and affordable.
These volunteers kept Sugar in her neighborhood so she can still

Shop puts used
sports gear back into play for needy kids
By ANN THRASH, contributing editor
16, 2010 - Kids can outgrow sports obsessions as fast as they outgrow
clothes. One day they're into skateboarding or playing soccer, and
seemingly the next they've moved on to wakeboarding or surfing --
and the once-beloved equipment Mom and Dad shelled out plenty of
cash for is left gathering dust in a garage or closet.
off, then, to Air & Earth, a Mount Pleasant wind-and-water-sports
shop, for coming up with a community-minded way to help reuse and
repurpose sports gear, just in time for the holidays. The company
is sponsoring its second "13 Days of Christmas" event,
a drive to collect used and new sports gear and "active"
toys to help local kids in need.
year's "active green" drive collected more than 1,000
items that were distributed to 27 families who were overlooked or
otherwise not a part of other local charities' holiday efforts.
year's drive started on Dec. 1 and runs through Monday, Dec. 20
- so this weekend, the last one before Christmas, would be an ideal
time to check your garage, attic and closets and create some space
for this year's goodies by donating your "preowned" sports
items to Air & Earth.
MIGHT NEED HELP?
Faucheron and Adam Von Ins, founders of Air & Earth, want
to hear about local families and kids that need some help
this holiday season and that might be candidates to receive
the items collected in the shop's sports-gear drive, "13
Days of Christmas." If you know of such a family or child,
e-mail Faucheron and Von Ins at email@example.com
or call 388-9300.
year we collected used skateboards and gave them to kids who desperately
wanted to skate, but had no chance of getting one. Even though it
was used, they were so happy," says Elea Faucheron, who founded
the company along with Adam Von Ins. "And it allowed donating
families to give without spending cash; one man's junk is often
another man's treasure."
its dual focus on exercising and recycling, the sports gear/toy
drive is a great fit with the mission of Air & Earth. "Since
our prime focus is helping kids be active, we are specifically searching
for used sporting goods items in good condition that we can recycle,"
says Von Ins.
adds, "We know there are plenty of locals with old stuff just
gathering dust. If you have a skateboard, surfboard, skim board,
body board, snowboard or kiteboard just sitting around, please donate!
We're also collecting things associated with these sports, like
used helmets, pads and wetsuits."
& Earth is also working with several local organizations, including
Windwood Farm Home for Children, East Cooper Community Outreach
and Louie's Kids, to collect specific other items, including weights,
exercise bands, jump ropes, exercise balls, basketballs, baseballs,
footballs and bike helmets.
are some more particulars about the drive if you'd like to contribute:
being accepted (new or used but in good condition) include skateboards,
wave boards, inline skates, longboards, surfboards, stand-up paddleboards,
wakeboards, kiteboards, snowboards and snow skis); team sports
items (football, basketball, baseball, soccer and volleyball);
and accessories for the above items and sports, such as helmets,
wetsuits, pads, etc.
play items (new and in original packaging) are needed as well.
Items being accepted include board games, playing cards, and art
and school supplies.
help you get a new toy or a gift, Air & Earth will give a
$5 gift card to each donator and offer some special deals for
grownup kids. You can learn more at the company's
Web site or Facebook

United Way has set a $10.5 million fundraising goal for this year,

Beautiful program gets national honor
Charleston Beautiful received the Keep America Beautiful President's
Circle Award the 57th annual National Conference in Orlando, Fla.
The President's Circle Award recognizes exemplary performance made
by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit to reduce litter,
minimize waste and recycle, and beautify their local communities.
qualifying for a President's Circle Award, Keep Charleston Beautiful
has met the national organization's standards of excellence by conducting
an annual Litter Index, calculating the affiliate's cost/benefit
ratio, and engaging volunteers to take greater responsibility for
their community environment.
Litter Index measures litter from year to year, identifies "hot
spots," and tracks their progress in remedying the problem.
The index takes into account litter, graffiti, overall lot condition,
illegally posted signs, and natural resource degradation. Twenty-five
locations are surveyed annually, five from each of Charleston's
different Geographic regions, West Ashley, James Island, Daniel
Island, Johns Island and the Peninsula.
The cost/benefit analysis measurement tool determines the dollar
value returned to the community for every government dollar invested.
In 2010 more than 4,000 volunteers donated over 9,000 hours of service
to Keep Charleston Beautiful. For every dollar that Keep Charleston
Beautiful received, a value of $4.73 was put back into the community
though services and projects.

Canto, by Ann Patchett
in the world did we miss this charming, warm, neat bestseller by
Tennessee writer Ann Patchett? "Bel Canto" offers a gripping
storyline involving a world-class opera singer, a major Japanese
business executive, a translator who speaks more than a dozen languages,
a birthday party in a banana republic and a hostage crisis. From
cover to cover, it is a wonderful read that offers insights into
life, death and human nature.

the Sabal palmetto, bends without breaking
Carolina's state tree is the Sabal palmetto, so designated by a
legislative act approved by Governor Burnet R. Maybank on March
17, 1939. The palmetto has appeared on the state seal since the
Revolutionary War and on the state flag since 1861. The word "palmetto"
comes from the Spanish palmito ("little palm"), and the
origin of Sabal is uncertain.
palmetto is a branchless palm with long, fanlike evergreen leaves
that spread atop a thick stem, or trunk. Botanists do not consider
it a true tree since it lacks a solid wood trunk. The palmetto's
range is the coastal area from North Carolina to Florida and the
Florida Panhandle. It can grow as high as sixty-five feet, and mature
South Carolina natives average thirty- to forty-feet tall.
popular name "cabbage palmetto" comes from the terminal
bud, or heart, of the stem. This can be eaten raw or cooked, and
its taste resembles that of cabbage. Removal of the heart kills
the tree. In the past some native Americans and European colonists
also ate the ripe black berries, and these are still a favorite
is a wind-adapted species, and its soft trunk and strong root system
allow it to bend with high winds without breaking or being uprooted.
Spongy palmetto logs were used in the construction of the Sullivan's
Island fort (later called Fort Moultrie) that absorbed British navy
cannonballs, without shattering, in the battle of June 28, 1776-giving
South Carolina troops the victory that is commemorated on the state
seal and flag. The Sabal palmetto is also the state tree of Florida
and appears on Florida's seal and flag.

have value and will generate revenue that flows back into the county.
Recycling also provides jobs in addition to many environmental and
health benefits." Here are her tips:
