SNEE FARM: Although it’s probably one of the least well-known federal historic sites in Charleston County, Snee Farm in Mount Pleasant is a lovely place for a hike and a history lesson. The Pinckney family owned the farm from 1754 to 1817, and it was a favorite among Charles Pinckney’s seven plantations. Pinckney was a governor of South Carolina, and a participant in the nation’s Constitutional Convention. Photo by Marsha Guerard.

Summerville Med Center remains confident in expansion plans
By BOB BEHANIAN
Special to Charleston Currents

Editor’s Note: The controversy over hospital expansion in Summerville and hospital construction in Berkeley County has stretched on for months. On Monday, Charleston Currents presented one aspect of this story, the viewpoint of Roper St. Francis Healthcare regarding its plans to build a hospital in Berkeley County and its opposition to the Summerville Medical Center expansion. Today, we present the viewpoint of Summerville Medical Center regarding its expansion application. That application is currently in a 120-day period of review to allow public comments.

JULY 28, 2011 — Summerville Medical Center is confident that plans of a $26 million expansion will be upheld by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. We also believe the expansion is necessary based on data from the state’s health plan.


Behanian

The most current South Carolina State Health plan lists Summerville Medical Center as the only hospital in the area with a bed need. All others have a bed surplus.

When identifying a bed need at Summerville Medical Center, the state’s Health Plan took into account two additional hospitals being built in Berkeley County. Roper Hospital is using a non-existent facility (proposed to be built in Carnes Crossing) to oppose the necessary expansion of Summerville Medical Center, an existing facility with a current bed need.

When applying to build in Carnes Crossing, Roper stated its hospital would have no adverse impact on any other area hospitals. Roper’s current opposition to SMC’s expansion is inconsistent with its Certificate of Need application.

Summerville Medical Center is the only hospital in Dorchester County.
Roper has never operated or owned a hospital in Dorchester County.
SMC is not relying on the population statistics in Berkeley County to justify its expansion in Summerville.  Rather, SMC is relying on the DHEC-published State Health Plan, which shows a bed need at Summerville Medical Center.


Caputo

In 2010, Summerville Medical Center provided almost $13 million in charity and uncompensated care and contributed $6.6 million in taxes.

It is estimated this expansion project will create 50 jobs within the facility and 250 construction jobs. The construction will add 30 medical/surgical beds to the 94-bed facility, and convert 18 semi-private rooms to private rooms. Construction will take approximately 36 months to complete.

Plans include a three-story patient tower that will be connected to the existing hospital on each level. Mindful consideration is being used in the design and planning in order to prevent disruption to patients who are hospitalized during construction.

“We are confident that our decision to expand meets the healthcare needs of our community,” Lou Caputo, Summerville Medical Center CEO, said.

Bob Behanian is director of public relations for Trident Health System.

Summerville Medical Center is a 94-bed, acute care hospital located in the Oakbrook section of Summerville between Ladson and Trolley Roads and is part of the HCA hospital system.


The iPad ejection seat: There’s an app for that
By MARSHA GUERARD, editor

JULY 28, 2011 — As our own contributing editor Peter Lucash notes below, the iPad has made a huge dent in personal computer sales nationwide. I suggest that it’s also making a dent in personal fitness.


Guerard

I live in a Mac family. I’m writing this on a big-screen iMac, I play solitaire on a Macbook while my husband checks email on his, we stay in touch on our iPhones, and we travel with an iPad. There’s no question that Apple sent PC sales in our household plummeting.

But there’s something about the iPad that singles it out, even in this Apple haven. It’s simple, elegant, easy to use, endlessly amusing with thousands of applications available. It’s incredibly useful on trips, as we hunt for great restaurants or places to visit. And I tend to reach for it more often at home than I do my comparatively heavy MacBook.

But the last two weeks have left me uneasy. I discovered an app called Pepperplate that allows me to save recipes from several websites to my iPad for use offline. It’s quick, easy, and addicting. I give it four stars, but I am saddle sore after spending hours building a library.

Then there’s Words With Friends, an app that lets my best friend (I have called her Poodleface for about 25 years) and me play a Scrabble-type game all evening while we’re watching TV in our respective living rooms. I even play this game with strangers online.

When I went to bed last night, random words flashed across my brain and I felt as if I was caught in a metaphorical lightning storm. I was stiff and exhausted from having moved very little all evening, but still, sleep would not come while I mentally rearranged letters.

I’m sure there’s an app for this — one designed to make me long for exercise, one that works as an ejection seat from my easy chair. It’s too bad you don’t have to at least take a stroll when you go to the App Store.

NAACP president to Haley: What would Gandhi do?

In his keynote address Monday during the First Plenary Session of the 102nd Annual NAACP Convention, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous challenged South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley on her decision to allow the Confederate Flag to fly in front of the South Carolina Statehouse.


Jealous

“Perhaps one of the most perplexing examples of the contradictions of this moment in history is that Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s first Governor of Color, continues to fly the Confederate Flag in front of her state’s capitol,” stated Jealous. “Given the similarities between our struggles to end slavery and segregation, and her ancestors’ struggle to end British colonialism and oppression in India, my question to Governor Haley is one that Dr. King often asked himself: ‘What would Gandhi do?’”
 
The flag has been flying atop the House and Senate Chambers since 2000, following a compromise that moved it from atop the Statehouse dome. Nevertheless, the NAACP has been engaged in an ongoing boycott of the state since 1999. Also, the National Collegiate Athletic Association refuses to bring tournaments to the state because of the flag.
 
New 9-1-1 Center to open in 2013

Local city and county officials broke ground Tuesday for the building planned to house the county’s Consolidated 9-1-1 Center and Emergency Operations Center.

The 38,000-square-foot structure is scheduled to open at 8500 Palmetto Commerce Parkway, North Charleston, in the spring of 2013. The new building will enable the full consolidation of 9-1-1 and emergency dispatch operations in Charleston County, and will also serve as the new location for the County’s Emergency Operations Center. 
 
An Intergovernmental Agreement signed in January 2008 joins all local jurisdictions within Charleston County in the plan toward consolidating 9-1-1 and dispatch services. Steps toward consolidation have already been taken, with some jurisdictions opting for early consolidation into the current center located in the County’s Lonnie Hamilton, III Public Services Building in North Charleston. The remaining jurisdictions plan to transition their dispatchers to the new Consolidated 9-1-1 Center once it is completed.
 
The nearly $27 million building is designed to be occupied during disasters, with the ability to withstand winds of 191 mph and resist earthquake forces. The first floor will be at elevation 49 feet, which is outside of the 500-year flood plain.
 
Blackbaud opens office in Mexico to serve nonprofits

Blackbaud, Inc., has opened an office in Mexico City, hired a new local team, and written a reseller agreement with EXITE.TI to support the growing Latin American philanthropic sector.

“We are investing in growing our presence in Latin America with a new office and a dedicated team to better serve our existing customers and to meet the increased demand for specialized nonprofit software,” said Fernando Ferreira, Blackbaud Latin America’s business development manager, who is based in Mexico. “We are also pleased to announce our partnership with EXITE.TI, who will be the official reseller of Blackbaud products in the region.”
 
Blackbaud has been investing in the region since the introduction of eTapestry Español, its first Spanish-language software, in 2010. With this new partnership, EXITE.TI will handle the sales and support of Blackbaud products in Mexico. More than 40 nonprofits in Latin America, including small to mid-size organizations and American schools, use Blackbaud products.

State sales tax holiday Aug. 5-7 may be small business boon

The August sales tax holiday will be a big help to small businesses still struggling to recover from the economic recession, says J.J. Darby, state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, South Carolina’s leading small-business association.

The holiday is Aug. 5-7. 

“Our country may be two years into the economic recovery, but small-business owners are still worried, especially when it comes to consumer spending,” Darby said. Weak sales continues to rank as the No. 1 challenge facing the nation’s small businesses, according to NFIB’s Small Business Economic Trends Report for July.

“The sales-tax holiday is really going to make a difference, because it’s going to help families stretch a dollar, and it’s going to put people in the mood to shop,” he said. “We’re hopeful they’ll use this opportunity to support the local economy and shop at small businesses.”

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses account for 97 percent of all employers in the state and employ about half of the state’s private-sector workforce.

“The bottom line is that the more we can encourage people to spend and to shop at small businesses, the more jobs we can save and create, and the faster our economy will get back on track,” Darby said.


Memminger School began as a school for girls

Founded in 1858, the State Normal School at Charleston (now Memminger School) owed its existence to a reform movement that simultaneously erected a modern public school system for the white children of the city, the first in South Carolina. The school was begun by Christopher G. Memminger, a state legislator and chairman of the Charleston school board.


Memminger

Patterned after schools in the northern states, the mission of the Memminger School (as it was called after 1876) was to train female teachers for the state at large as a department of a new city high school for girls (the Charleston High School was then reserved for boys only). The first principal was Frederick A. Sawyer, a native of Boston and future U.S. senator for South Carolina.

Memminger got initial support from state funds and drew students from outside the city. However, the school came to rely primarily on local gifts and taxes. Admission depended on entrance tests and was usually free. The curriculum included courses in education theory and practice, teaching advanced studies in the humanities, mathematics, and science. Eventually, Memminger expanded its scope, providing departments of instruction in domestic science and business. After years of declining enrollments variously attributed to the admission of women to the College of Charleston and wider opportunities for women in the private economy, the flagship Normal Department was discontinued in 1932. By then the school had educated thousands of teachers, business and professional women, and housewives.

In 1933 Memminger was reorganized as a comprehensive high school for white girls, offering classical, general, and prevocational courses. In subsequent decades, as secondary schools of Charleston were integrated by gender and race, Memminger emerged as the name of an elementary school.

A streetcar named Blurry


Publisher Andy Brack, in New Orleans for a wedding, snapped this street car on St. Charles Avenue as it was headed one way in the rain as he was headed another direction. Regardless of the iPhone photo's quality, it's not hard to see that lots of people use this mode of transportation, something that Charleston used to have.

5 on how to avoid being greenwashed


Harvey

Greenwashing is the practice of marketing a product or company as environmentally sustainable when it is not (or isn't as eco- friendly as presented). Just as the production and availability of organic and environmentally sustainable products have grown, so has the practice of greenwashing. Here are 5 tips to avoid being greenwashed when you're shopping for legitimate environmentally friendly products:

  • Check for a certification seal from an accepted, independent group. Many companies make organic or eco-friendly claims without certification, and sometimes even create their own certification seals. EnergyStar, Green Seal, Water Sense and USDA Certified Organic are all credible certifications.

  • Read the label closely. A few greenwashing red flags for ingredients include: fragrance, parabens, phlates, artificial colors and petroleum. Avoid products if the label includes phrases like “caution,” “keep out of the reach of children,” “use in a well ventilated area” or “may be harmful to pets.” Companies sometimes try to stretch the organic content out of ingredients by adding botanical oils to water, so avoid products that use the phrase “aqueous infusion of.” Also, don’t be fooled by labels that include green hues or images of nature.

  • Be wary of generic claims like “pure,” “all- natural” or “earth-friendly.” These claims may be found in advertisements and on packaging, so make sure to investigate the product further.

  • Examine the product’s packaging. Just because the product is green, does not mean the packaging is green. Is it made from recycled paper or other recycled materials? Can it be recycled?

  • Just because a product contains fair-trade or organic ingredients, does not make it organic. To obtain an USDA Certified Organic certification, a product must contain at least 95 percent organic ingredients.
