Family Circle Cup Ball Crew dreams come true
By MORGAN RAINER
Family Circle Cup
Special to Charleston Currents

FEB. 3, 2011 - Every young athlete has his or her fantasy. Being a member of Jeff Gordon's pit crew. Being a flower girl for Tara Lipinski's Olympic gold medal performance. You know that fantasy - the one you sat in class daydreaming about while you were supposed to be reading "Old Yeller."


Ranier

For a 9-year-old tennis player from Charleston, being on the other side of the net of a World No. 1's forehand winner was the ultimate dream.

In 2004, Steven Weaver was given the opportunity to turn his tennis daydream into a reality. Now a Family Circle Cup Ball Crew veteran, Steven is 16 years old and just as enthusiastic about being a ball boy as he was seven years ago. Oh, and he has chased down the balls of not one, but two former World No 1's.

"The most memorable match I was a ball boy in was definitely the Serena Williams vs. Maria Sharapova quarterfinal match in 2008," Steven said. "Serena has always been my favorite player in the WTA, so I was very excited to be a part of that match."


Steven Weaver (right) and Joseph Kennedy take time out from their work on the Family Circle Cup Ball Crew.

Ball Crew members at the Cup play an important role at this Women's Tennis Association Premier event and are essential to the success of the tournament. Because this year's tournament does not coincide with a school break, Family Circle Cup has a significant need for daydreamers and tennis fans of all ages to be on-court with the superstars of women's tennis. This unique volunteer opportunity offers access to matches, players and promises to turn those daydreams into memories that will last a lifetime.

Family Circle Cup is in the process of recruiting more than 200 adults and juniors, ages 11 and up, for the Ball Crew. Weekly training sessions will be held at the Family Circle Tennis Center from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. every Saturday through March 26. A final, mandatory training session will be held on Friday, April 1. All participants are needed at the week of the Family Circle Cup (Saturday, April 2 to Thursday, April 7), and an All-Star Team will be selected on ability, performance and attitude for the quarters, semis and finals, April 8 to April 10.


The Family Circle Cup Ball Crew had the opportunity to work with current World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki at the 2010 tournament.

Ball Crew applications are available on-line at FamilyCircleCup.com or at the Family Circle Tennis Center.

"Not only did I get to miss school, but I got to meet some of the best tennis players on Tour and had the opportunity to see that they were just normal people doing their job," Steven said. "It is a neat experience and I would encourage anyone to do it."

Family Circle Cup ticket packages and individual session tickets are available now. Fans can visit FamilyCircleCup.com for continuous updates on ticket information and player commitments as the tournament approaches.

Morgan Rainer is a PR/Communications Intern in the Communications Department at the Family Circle Cup.


An evening where one tweet led to another
By MARSHA GUERARD, editor

NOTE: Charleston Currents Editor Marsha Guerard today starts a weekly column that will appear here each Thursday.

FEB. 3, 2011 - In five minutes, the Yellow Warbler perched two feet to my left will tweet her very own version of a status update.

I'm not talking about the Twitter kind of tweeting, either. This is the Real Thing -- well, sort of -- a bird sounding off to let me know that the hour has reached 10 a.m.

I have an Audubon clock ticking away on the wall next to my desk here in my office. Twelve different species -- including the Carolina Wren who built her nest at 7 o'clock -- alert me to the passage of time by singing me into the next hour.

Most of the time, the loud call takes me off-guard and I jump out of my skin. This is a good thing, however, because I work at home and I have a tendency to forget the time and give in to the one zillion distractions that a terrific computer with a fast Internet connection can provide.

Sometimes it's an email from a friend, sometimes it's cyber-window-shopping at fancy Web sites such as Gilt or HauteLook. (I have two slim daughters who are my grown-up version of Barbie dolls. Fun to dress.)

Last night, my distraction ironically turned out to be birds. While setting up an RSS feed so I can quickly peruse news articles pertinent to the varied editing work that keeps a roof over my head, I happened upon the Web site of the American Birding Association. I'm not sure how I managed to get there, since most of my feeds come from sites with back-to-nature names like "Supply Chain Digest" and "Federal Reserve Bank Economic Highlights."

But once I was through the door of the American Birding Association, I was off and surfing to dozens of avian roosts on the Web. Working for a living flew right out the window.

I love to watch birds, although I am a novice when it comes to real birding. I have a "life list" of birds that includes molting Wood Storks (not that pretty a sight, I might add), the Bald Eagle, the Roseate Spoonbill, even the Tufted Puffin -- a pretty rare find for a girl from South Carolina.

So what did I learn from an evening spent bird surfing? I learned that it's great to be distracted every now and then by something you truly love, be it a bird, a pet, or a family member. Birds not only remind me of the passage of time -- they remind me that time is a precious commodity and should include your passions as well as practicality.

U.S. transportation secretary visits state on green mission
By GREG GARVAN, contributing editor

FEB. 3, 2011 -- Proterra, an electric bus company in the Upstate, had a visit last week from the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood as he promoted a goal of having one million electric vehicles on our highways by 2015. Proterra is another part of the Clemson International Center for Automotive Research, and an example of how Clemson continues to lead us here in South Carolina into a greener future.

Slow Decadence: Slow Food/Charleston announces its green approach to Valentine's Day: Slow Decadence Valentine's Celebration at the
Dock Street Theater on Church Street in downtown Charleston. The two-hour event will start Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Local mixologist Boris Van Dyck of Icebox Bar will mix up cocktails designed especially for the occasion, as well as wine and non-alcoholic beverages. A selection of love songs from 1670 to 1970 will be performed by the Unwind Duo, featuring Helen Greenfield on cello and Steve Green on guitar.
Cost is $25 for members, $35 for non-members. More.

Methane methodology: Biogas = Animal waste produces methane gas, which can then be used as a fuel for electricity. In Costa Rica a few years ago, we spent some time on a 2-acre organic commercial farm powered only by cow methane gases. Santee Cooper and Clemson are working with Burrows Hall Farm to use their hog waste to produce fuel, and it is expected that by this summer at least 90 homes will be powered using hog waste. The excess fluids from the process will either be used as fertilizer -- organic, of course -- or returned to the hogs. Talk about a sustainable green cycle!

Citadel features critic of intelligent design at Darwin Week

One of the nation's leading critics of intelligent design theory will speak Feb. 10 as part of The Citadel's observance of Darwin Week.


Pennock

Robert T. Pennock, a professor of science and philosophy at Michigan State University, will speak at 6:30 p.m. in Grimsley Hall's Graham Copeland Auditorium. Pennock is best known for his expert testimony in the landmark Dover, Del., school board case testing the constitutionality of teaching in public schools the theory of intelligent design, which argues that the universe is so complex it must have been created by an intelligent being.

Pennock testified that intelligent design is not science but religion.

Pennock has been teaching at Michigan State since 2000. He is a lifetime member of the National Research Council of the National Academies of Science and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His book "Tower of Babel" was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award.

Parks Conservancy offers classes for home gardeners

Happy Birthday to trailblazer Dr. Catherine McCottry

Physician Catherine Mae McKee McCottry was born on Feb. 3, 1921, in Charlotte, N.C. McCottry attended Barber Scotia Junior College at Concord, N.C., before enrolling at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte. She later became that school's first alumna to earn a medical degree. After completing a biology bachelor's degree in 1941, McCottry was accepted at the Howard University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. Dr. Charles Drew, who developed blood banks, was one of her professors and influenced her surgical skills.


McCottry

McCottry graduated in 1945 and trained in several residencies, specializing in obstetrics and gynecology at New York's Harlem Hospital, Charlotte's Good Samaritan Hospital, and Chicago's Providence Hospital. In 1946 McCottry began practicing medicine in her hometown and was the first black woman physician there. She received her professional license in 1950. She married Turner McDonald McCottry, a Charleston native and graduate of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tenn. They had two children.

Moving to Charleston in 1952, McCottry joined her husband, who established a general practice with obstetrics and gynecology services. He became chief of staff at the McClennan-Banks Memorial Hospital. The couple were Charleston's first African American team of physicians, and she was the city's first black woman to practice gynecology and obstetrics. Catherine McCottry became noted for her direct patient care services and was a leader in the drive to integrate hospitals in Charleston in the 1960s. She retired from practicing medicine in the early 1970s but continued her medical service in other forums. Her husband died in 1996.

Throughout her career McCottry emphasized public health education, especially for sickle-cell anemia, which affects primarily blacks. She served as chairperson for the health committee of the African American sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha. Many of her educational initiatives addressed young women. McCottry implemented prenatal-care counseling programs for pregnant teenagers. She lectured about prevention, symptoms, and treatments for the American Cancer Society. McCottry also taught young adults about hypertension and stress reduction.

McCottry received numerous awards and accolades for her volunteer and professional work. National politicians including President Bill Clinton, Senators Ernest Hollings and Strom Thurmond, and Congressman James Clyburn wrote commendation letters accompanying the Women Who Make a Difference Award. In 2000 Charleston mayor Joseph P. Riley proclaimed that May 23 was Dr. Catherine McCottry Day. McCottry also was featured in that year's BellSouth Corporation's African American History Calendar.
