Helping homeowners to avoid foreclosure
By VALARIE M. WILLIAMS
Executive director, S.C. State Housing Finance and Development Authority
Special to Charleston Currents

JUNE 24, 2013 -- Retirement nest eggs, children's college funds, rainy day savings, valuable equity in a home -- many South Carolinians have worked their entire adult lives to build these critical financial safety nets. But due to the lingering effects of the recession, most notably continued unemployment and underemployment, many hardworking people who are responsible homeowners and have been for years are concerned about paying their mortgages and are often using every bit of savings to try and keep their homes.


Williams

Fortunately in South Carolina, we don't believe that unforeseen, catastrophic economic events that are beyond a homeowner's control should cost them their homes or savings. Many of these homeowners -- our friends, neighbors and even families -- could be eligible for financial assistance through the South Carolina Homeownership and Employment Lending Program (SC HELP).

Launched in early 2011, SC HELP is a foreclosure prevention program backed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the S.C. State Housing Finance and Development Authority. SC HELP has already assisted over 5,000 homeowners in our state, helping to keep their mortgages from slipping into default or foreclosure. Financial aid through SC HELP has provided a lifeline for our state's families, communities and economy.

June is National Homeownership Month and it's important to understand that the effects of widespread foreclosure are far-reaching: Families are stressed and displaced; homes are left vacant, potentially resulting in increases in crime and a devaluing of surrounding homes; tax revenues used to support our schools and critical services are negatively impacted.

It is imperative that we, as citizens of South Carolina, support the work SC HELP is doing to slow the tide of preventable foreclosures in our state. Support begins with understanding who qualifies and what kind of assistance is available through the program.

In order to apply, homeowners must be faced with at least one of the following qualifying hardships:

  • Unemployment
  • Underemployment
  • Reduction of income for self-employed
  • Death of a spouse
  • Catastrophic medical expenses
  • Divorce

Available assistance includes:

  • Reinstatement Assistance: Helps to pay arrearages and bring the loan current.

  • Monthly Payment Assistance: Assists homeowners with monthly payments for a period of time while they seek employment and return to self-sustainability.

  • Transition Assistance: Provides funding to assist families as they transition from homeownership in cases where the mortgage cannot be salvaged and the homeowner is able to negotiate a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.

If a neighbor, co-worker, employee or even a family member is facing one of these hardships and struggling to keep up with their mortgage, it is imperative that they immediately begin the SC HELP application process. Lenders begin the foreclosure process quickly and SC HELP can most benefit homeowners who seek assistance before the foreclosure process begins.

While SC HELP cannot help everyone, even homeowners who don't qualify for funds through the program can find local resources, agencies, assistance and tools for their individual situations at SCHELP.gov.

Responsible homeowners all over South Carolina have worked hard all of their lives to support their families, and in turn, SC HELP is available to provide eligible homeowners with assistance that keeps families in homes and neighborhoods, communities and savings accounts intact.

  • For more information or to start an application, go to SCHELP.gov. Homeowners without Internet access may call toll free at 1-855-435-7472.

Brookgreen Gardens offers enchanting, marvelous outing
By ANDY BRACK, editor and publisher

JUNE 24, 2013 -- One of the most enjoyable outings our family has had of late is a visit to Brookgreen Gardens in northern Georgetown County.

If you haven't been there, you might not realize what you're missing: More than 1,000 magnificent outdoor sculptures in formal gardens, a zoo with native animals in outdoor habitats, a butterfly house and more. Since 1932, Brookgreen Gardens has also served as an outdoor museum filled with majestic trees and blooms of all sorts of seasonal flowers.


"Fountain of the Muses"

But front and center are the captivating sculptures throughout the 9,100-acre attraction, reportedly the largest collection of outdoor sculpture by American artists in the world. Among the offerings:

  • The Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington Sculpture Garden, designed in 1931 in the shape of a spread wing butterfly by Anna Hyatt Huntington, the renowned sculptor who envisioned Brookgreen Gardens. This garden features a golden statue of Dionysus as well as the Peace Garden Room for children and a kitchen garden with local herbs and flowers. There's a sculpture center and sculpture court at either end of this garden.

  • Two huge pieces of sculpture that attract kids and adults -- "Pegasus" just off the southern wing of the main sculpture garden and "Samson and the Lion" in the nearby Palmetto Garden.

  • "Diana of the Chase," in a pool in the Diana Garden, adjacent to a gorgeous Live Oak Allee garden of trees planted 300 years ago when Brookgreen was a working rice plantation.

  • "Fountain of the Muses," a showcase for modern sprites dancing whimsically across a pool in a special garden.


"Pegasus"

Brookgreen Gardens got its start after a 1929 visit by the wealthy Huntingtons, who originally bought the four plantations that make up the property to be the site of a winter home. Soon however, Anna Hyatt Huntington (1876-1973) realized the area would be perfect to highlight her sculpture and that of others. Mrs. Huntington, the first woman artist to be elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, has sculptures and monuments of magnificent athletic horses and other subjects all over the world, including Washington, D.C., New York, Connecticut, Cuba, Spain and Argentina.

A visit to Brookgreen Gardens is well worth it. As a bonus, your ticket ($14 for adults, $7 for kids) is good for a full week to encourage you to return if you're vacationing nearby and are looking for something to do to augment trips to the beach.

EARLIER THIS MONTH, two former gubernatorial candidates - one Republican, another Democratic - were evangelizing in Charleston about the benefits of a new political party for South Carolina, the American Party.

Oscar Lovelace, a Newberry doctor, and Jim Rex, a former state superintendent, say they're frustrated with how our two-party system fails to perform and, instead, ends up perpetuating the same petty politics that have limited the state for decades.

"This system is not going to improve if we leave it up to the duopoly," or two parties, Rex said at the Charleston organizational meeting. Lovelace added, "If gridlock doesn't work in your home or your business, why should we expect it to work in our government?"

Both men, who said they realized that they agreed on a lot more than they differed when they got to know each other, pointed to multiple problems in government at state and national levels: the corrupting influence of money, legislative logjams, career politicians, partisanship and the lack of real transparency and accountability.

FEEDBACK

$25 is more than you might think

To the editor:

$25 as a minimum state tax payment may seem inconsequential to you and me, but it's a mountain for someone surviving on unemployment or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or welfare. It's food for a week or more for one person - perhaps two children. We are just coming out of a horrendous recession, and it's dismaying to see so many attempts to demonize those in need (cutting Food Stamps, drug tests for unemployment compensation, etc.). I understand your concept, but in reality, it just piles on for those who are surviving on the edge - and those are the ones you are seeking to target (those most likely not to have to pay a tax).

-- Susan Breslin, Folly Beach, S.C.

Lots of folks not required to file

To the editor:

Many of those, especially people over 65, who pay no tax also aren't required to file. If they now must do that to pay a minimum, a large part of that $25 might be used to cover the cost of having the SCDOR process the returns, especially if people mail them in as I do.

By the way, many of those who pay no SC tax are those of us who have much of our income earned in another state. That's offset by all the North Carolinians and Georgians who work and pay taxes in SC. Will you make them pay a minimum? What about students who don't earn enough to need to file?

Those are examples that occurred to me in just a few minutes; others will have many more. In the 35+ years I've been preparing taxes, very few attempts at tax simplification have done anything but add complexities. That doesn't mean that I favor a flat tax, but it does make me sympathize with the reasons behind that drive.

Goodbiz Summit promoted sustainable businesses
By GREG GARVAN, contributing editor

JUNE 24, 2013 -- Last week's "Goodbiz Summit," sponsored by Lowcountry Local First is part of the movement to promote sustainable businesses that are succeeding and sustaining. Among the topics covered were how to create an impactful business, creating a local supply chain, "benefit corporations" or B-corps.

If you missed it, check out this Facebook page and make some connections of your own.

As Charleston grows, one of the things that can help that growth be sustainable and long term is to help businesses that are making a dollar, while also making a difference in social impact. Our business, in its third decade, has been part of that world for a long time. There is lots of room here in the low country to grow this movement, and we hope you'll use your dollars to help grow 'Goodbiz.'

  • The next Good Business Workshop is July 25 and will help businesses learn how to become vendors for the state's growing film industry. More.

GOOD NEWS

Hollings to get top French honor today

Retired U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings is scheduled to receive the highest honor from France, the Legion of Honor, during a 2 p.m. ceremony today at the Dock Street Theatre in Charleston, as first reported Friday by our sister publication, Statehouse Report.

During World War II, Hollings, now 91, served as an officer in the U.S. Army's 323rd and 457th Artillery units. He received a Bronze Star for meritorious service for support of combat operations in France and Germany. He also served in northern Africa. Hollings, a former South Carolina governor, served in the U.S. Senate from 1966 to 2005.

Friday is Carolina Day, marking 237th battle anniversary

Carolina Day, celebrated June 28 to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Sullivan's Island, is filled with events in Charleston and on Sullivan's Island this year, the 237th anniversary of the event.

On June 28, 1776, the 2nd South Carolina Regiment, under the command of Col. William Moultrie, fought a day-long battle despite being outmanned and outgunned by nine British warships. At the end of the day, the patriots prevailed, winning the first victory in the American fight for independence and preventing the British from gaining a foothold in Charleston for four years. Also, the victory gave confidence to colonial leaders a few days later as they considered the Declaration of Independence, dated July 4 but signed throughout the month.

Among the events:

  • Downtown commemoration by the Palmetto Society and the S.C. Historical Society with a 10 a.m. church service at St. Michael's Church, 71 Broad Street; an 11 a.m. parade from Washington Park to White Port Garden; and an 11:30 a.m. wreath-laying ceremony at Jasper Monument. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Michael S. Kogan, a professor at Montclair State University, where he served for 24 years as chairman of the Department of Philosophy and Religion. His family roots go back in Charleston to the mid-eighteenth century, and he serves on the board of directors of the Spoleto Festival USA and the Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina.

  • Revolutionary War-era demonstrations, starting at 10 a.m. with a final presentation at 4 p.m., Fort Moultrie, Sullivan's Island. Living historians will portray members of the 2nd South Carolina Regiment and provide demonstrations of 18th century weapons, medical programs and camp life as it was in 1776. There also will be musket drills for children.

Magnolia History Fair bridges past, present on July 6

More than 40 local businesses, organizations and institutions with historic ties to the Lowcountry will convene July 6 at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens for a history fair.

"It is truly awesome that all of these organizations will be in one place for a History Fair," said Lisa Randle, Magnolia's director of research and education "This affords the historians, researchers and visitors the opportunity to learn about one another in a convenient and festive outdoor setting. Whether you are a professional or novice at history, history will come alive at this event."

Groups will offer information and presentations on rice cultivation, African-American genealogy and history, Native-American culture, military and Southern history, the workmanship of legendary blacksmith Philip Simmons and South Carolina's links with Barbados. A representative of the national heritage corridor, created by Congress in 2006 and dedicated to the preservation of Gullah-Geechee culture, will also participate in the day-long fair.

The fair will showcase well-known names in education, religion, business, social services, the arts and tourism, including Charles Town Landing State Historic Site, a state-owned park on the grounds where the Carolina Colony was founded in 1670.

Magnolia was founded in 1676, a century before the Revolutionary War, and its gardens were opened seven years after the Civil War. "Magnolia has seen this nation through its birth, wars, the Civil Rights Movement up until today," Magnolia Executive Director Tom Johnson said. The gardens at Magnolia were first established around 1685 and opened for a fee in 1872, establishing Magnolia as Charleston's first tourist attraction.

At the History Fair, Magnolia will be joined by its Ashley River neighbors Drayton Hall and Middleton Place under the banner of the Historic Ashley River Plantation District. Randle said, "These plantations have been together on the Ashley River for centuries. Now they are coming together to tell their unique histories."

On July 6, free garden admission will be offered to firefighters, law enforcement officers, emergency medical technicians, physicians, nurses, and active duty military and immediate family. Valid identification is required.

Joyland
By Stephen King

Everyone has heard of Stephen King. I have read many of his novels but never one like "Joyland." It took me back to being 21 again when, you might recall, as a very confusing time of life. When you pick this book up, don't have any other plans for awhile as you will not want to put it down.

It is set in North Carolina at an aging carnival by the sea. It is sweet and sad, all at the same time. For me, it took me back to a kinder, gentler time, but it soon became a "dark and stormy night."

It's a book about coming of age, lost love, found love, a boy and his dog. Are you hooked yet? You will be from page one. It is one that will remind you about how novels used to be written.

What are you waiting for? I just returned it to the library.

S.C. ENCYCLOPEDIA

Fort Moultrie

This was the site of the June 28, 1776, American victory in the Revolutionary War. Fort Moultrie I, the Revolutionary War-era fort, was replaced in 1798 by Fort Moultrie II, which was followed in 1809 by Fort Moultrie III, which served as a military post until 1947.

Fort Moultrie I was located on Sullivan's Island at the mouth of Charleston harbor. Construction began in February 1776 on the then-unnamed palmetto log and sand fort. A square fort with corner bastions, its walls were five hundred feet long, more than ten feet high, and sixteen feet apart, with the space between filled with sand. On June 28, 1776, Colonel William Moultrie commanded the half-completed fort, which mounted thirty-one cannons and a garrison of more than four hundred soldiers. In the nine-and-one-half-hour battle, nine British warships with almost three hundred cannons were defeated. After the victory, the fort was completed and named in Moultrie's honor. After the war the fort was not garrisoned and fell into disrepair.

Completed in 1798, the second fort was a five-sided brick, timber, and earthen structure with walls seventeen feet high and sixteen mounted cannons. Built near the site of the 1776 fortification, Fort Moultrie II was almost destroyed by a hurricane in 1804.

The third Fort Moultrie was completed in 1809 on the site of the 1798 fort. It had five fifteen-feet-high brick walls and originally mounted forty cannons. When South Carolina seceded on December 20, 1860, Fort Moultrie III was commanded by Major Robert Anderson, who transferred his command to Fort Sumter on the night of December 26. South Carolina troops moved into Fort Moultrie the next day, and on April 12, 1861, it played a major role in the bombardment of Fort Sumter.

Though heavily damaged by Union bombardments during the Civil War, Fort Moultrie played a key role in the Confederate defense of Charleston harbor. After the war, the fort was repaired but not garrisoned, and by 1887 it was once more in need of major repairs. In 1897 the fort was again garrisoned. After the Spanish-American War in 1898 concrete batteries were built and other improvements were made inside the fort. The army also purchased land on Sullivan's Island to construct more batteries and other structures, establishing the Fort Moultrie Reservation. During World War I as many as three thousand army personnel lived on the reservation. After the war it served as a U.S. Army National Guard and Civilian Conservation Corps training facility.

During World War II the garrison was increased and its defenses improved. While no combat occurred, German U-boats mined the harbor entrance in September 1942. In 1944 an army-navy command post was constructed inside Fort Moultrie to provide a single location to direct the artillery defending the harbor and control the shipping. The Fort Moultrie Reservation was deactivated in 1947 and its buildings sold to private individuals or given to the state of South Carolina. In 1960 Fort Moultrie was transferred by the state to Fort Sumter National Monument, a unit of the National Park Service.
