April 28, 2011

Two of Callawassie Island’s challenging  Tom Fazio courses will be the setting for a May 2 Golf Tournament  benefitting Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse (CODA).

The format will be a men’s  and ladies’ Best Ball Scramble (Shamble) on Callawassie’s “Dogwood” and “Magnolia” courses. Registration is at 11 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Boxed lunches, greens fees and carts are included in the cost. Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres  and prizes will follow the event.

When designing Callawassie’s three courses, Fazio took advantage of the island’s natural beauty to create visual drama and superb playability. Magnificent live oaks and magnolias, as well as freshwater ponds and the surrounding saltwater marsh, come into play on most holes. The courses were just renovated in 2009.

For 25 years CODA has been the only provider of emergency shelter and outreach support for victims of domestic violence and their children in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties. CODA relies on community contributions to provide the comprehensive services offered, including emergency shelter for adults and children fleeing abusive situations.

Team up for  CODA at Callawassie, May 2. To reserve a spot, call 770-1074 x221 or go to and pay with Paypal.


Largest King Mackerel Fishing Tournament in South Carolina designates Lt. Dan Weekend as Beneficiary

April 21, 2011

Captain Nick Russell, of Port Royal, SC designated the Independence Fund and the Lt. Dan Weekend as beneficiary of all proceeds raised from the inaugural “American Wounded Veteran’s King Mackerel Fishing Tournament” scheduled for 8-9 July. The tournament offers the perfect opportunity for both local sport fisherman, and those from out of town to participate in this event specifically designed to support some of the most severely injured veterans from the current wars.

“They fought for us, let’s fish for them,” said Russell, a professional sportsman, Marine veteran, and exuberant supporter of the troops.

Russell came up with the idea for a fishing tournament last year after serving as a volunteer during the Lt Dan Weekend (LDW) where he served as a “go to guy” for many of the veterans and their families.

“There were so many different activities taking place throughout the weekend that it could have overwhelmed anyone, especially those veterans attending who have Traumatic Brain Injuries,” said one LDW committee member. “Having someone like Nick as a part of it, whom these veterans could relate to and instantly bond with was a Godsend.”

Russell says the payout for the Fishing Tournament will be $30,000…the biggest payout to date for this type tournament in South Carolina. “What is especially unique about this tournament is that there will be multiple weigh-in points along the coast, something that will make it even easier for those of us who love to fish to support our wounded troops,” he added.

LDW2 is scheduled to take place from 14-18 September and will be centered around more than one hundred severely injured veterans and caregivers who will descend upon the Lowcountry for four days of events and activities designed to foster their healing and provide the opportunity for a grateful community to express their thanks. The highlight of the event will again be a concert performed by well known entertainer, Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band in Beaufort’s Waterfront Park. Tickets are available at, along with more details on the tournament.

“Gary obviously liked what he saw take place last year or he would not be coming back,” Russell said. “It’s an experience you will never forget.”

Beaufort High School

With BHS Coach David Riedmayer (321.0381) and Teaching Pro Warren Florence (441.0871)

Morning QuickStart Tennis

April 21, 2011

Quick Start Tennis, also known as “10 and Under Tennis,” is a competitive play format that features modified equipment and courts, allowing kids to rally and play the game of tennis earlier than the expected advanced lesson training. With shorter and narrower courts, lower nets and lower compression balls, kids build the confidence and ability to cover the entire court. Now, children 10 and under can compete and play, moving their way through a progressive court system until they reach the traditional court size where tournament ages 12 and up play and compete. Please have on sunscreen. Bring a hat and water bottle. No flip flops.

Ages 5-8 9 – 10 a.m. $80

Ages 9-11 10 –11:30 a.m. $120

5 total hours 7.5 total hours

Afternoon Intermediate & Advanced

Intermediate Ages 12-16 3 – 4:30 p.m. $120

Advanced Ages 12-18 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. $175

The Beaufort Tennis Camp afternoon session narrows in on the more serious-minded tennis athlete. While this group of players will strive for improvement – and not without laughs and fun – high performance tennis is the priority. We will continue to focus on the whole player by advancing:

· Technical development and sound technique; Good footwork and conditioning

· Court consciousness in doubles and singles; Point set up; Shot making and closing

· Consistency; Patterns of advanced play; Match philosophy

· Honesty; Sportsmanship; Character

Three Compete in Masters Weightlifting Championship

April 14, 2011

Larry Deloach, Teddy Binett, and Clint Silon

Although Team Beaufort Weightlifting is comprised primarily with youth, adults often train and compete as well.  On April 1st – 3rda Masters Weightlifting Championship event was held in Savannah, GA.  Masters weightlifting is the Olympic sport of weightlifting for persons 35 years and older.  The ultimate sport of strength and power should not be confused with power lifting, bodybuilding or general weight training.  The weightlifting consists of 2 events: the snatch and the clean and jerk.  Masters weightlifting is a committee within USA Weightlifting, which is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sport of weightlifting in the U.S.

Three “seasoned weightlifters,” Larry Deloach, Clint Silon, and Ted Binnett that competed at the Masters for Team Beaufort.  Teddy Binett won Silver, Clint Silon won Bronze and Larry Deloach came in 5th place. Also, I have attached a fundraiser flyer that Team Beaufort will be hosting a car wash on April 15, 2011 at Advanced Auto on Robert Smalls Parkway, 3:00-8:00.  Any “plugs” you could give would be helpful as you know we are TOTALLY non-profit!  J

Thanks again for all of your support!

Coach Drafts Honored

March 10, 2011

On Saturday, February 12, Battery Creek High School hosted a special banquet honoring the 27 seasons John Drafts coached basketball at the school.

Numerous colleagues, former players, former teammates, current students and alumni gathered for the 4-hour event that began in the John J. McVey Performing Arts Center.

As a surprised Coach Drafts entered the spacious auditorium with family in-tow, the theater’s speakers bellowed the theme music of the 1977 film classic, “Star Wars.”

The host, Darrin Moultrie, comically introduced several speakers that included fellow coaches Greg Elliot and Wilbert Bryant, along with the honoree’s brother, Bryan and the coach’s two sons, Trent and Collin.  Former basketball player, Greg Gilbert c/o 1994, spoke about the impact Coach Drafts has had on his life.

A tribute video followed with many interviews including segments about Coach Drafts as a Teacher, Coach, and Athletic Director. Those featured in the video were former players, fellow staff members and colleagues.

After the tribute video, the man of the hour and family were escorted out of the John McVey Auditorium to the Battery Creek High School Cafeteria to greet their guests before entering.

The host announced that, as according to the program, there would be a speech by Coach Bruce Beasley, Beaufort High Men’s Basketball Coach.  As the crowd looked around they noticed that Coach Beasley was not in attendance, yet all of a sudden he appeared on the monitors in the cafeteria.   Coach Beasley joked about losing to Coach Drafts the last four times their teams played and never being able to get him back due to his retirement.

It was a night well deserved for a man that has impacted so many people in such a positive manner.

Hope Gray leaps above Riverview defenders to score the final basket of the season in Beaufort Academys 28-4 victory.

In their final game of the season the Beaufort Academy Middle School girls beat Riverview Charter School 28-4.  After being held scoreless in the second quarter the BA girls exploded with a twenty point second half.  The Eagles were sparked by their trio of sixth grade guards.  Hope Gray and Amanda Kahn had eight points apiece, and Mary Keane chipped in with six.

With the victory, Beaufort Academy finished the season with a school record of eighteen wins.  The 18-6 record was a reflection of a balanced offense and intense defense.  The Eagles outscored their opponents 631-363 over the course of the season.  The leading scorers were Mary Keane and Hope Gray, who averaged 5.9 and 5.4 points per game respectively.  Mary and Hope were joined by Amanda Kahn and eighth-graders Casey Kahn and Bridget Baggerly in a smothering defense, which held their opponents to15 points a game.

With three starters and a solid roster of players returning , Coach Bill Gabrielson looks forward to another great season in 2011-2012.

Team SC 14U defeats Sarasota, FL Meteors

By Bobby Youngblood

January 6, 2011

Bobby Youngblood is founder of Hardball Elite, a recruiting agency that assists athletes as they strive to play at the next level. Coach Youngblood is one of South Carolinas most recognizable baseball figures. He has spent 32 years as a college, select travel, american legion, and high school coach. Youngblood was also managing partner of The Sports Academy, South Carolinas first indoor training center of its magnitude.

I have been around for fifty-six years.  Baseball was not a priority in South Carolina for a lot of those years.  Gratefully, for a number of reasons, baseball became a priority about fifteen years ago.  We can, as aforementioned, cite a list of factors.  However, a deep talent pool of impact players will always be my favorite factor to talk about.

The next wave of talent could very well be present in our 2014-2016 classes.

Baseball people are already aware of the depth of talent that exists throughout our state especially in these age groups.

Team SC American used a solid effort to defeat one of the nation’s elite teams, the Meteors of Sarasota, Florida 8-7.

The grit and determination of both teams was impressive.  Neither squad was in mid season form from an execution standpoint.  After all, it is late December.  However, foot speed, arm strength, bat speed, baseball instincts, and a love for the game were all on display for this outstanding group of players.

Zack Heaton singled to lead off the bottom of the second for Team SC.  Matt Pike reached on an error and Ryan Maness singled to tie the score 1-1.  Hunter Zajicek reached on a fielder’s choice to drive in the second run for a 2-1 lead.  Brandon Jenkins singled in a run before Chris Brown walked and Grant Fuller was hit by a pitch.  Jake Mueller was also hit by a pitch.  Jake Mueller was also hit by a pitch setting up a sacrifice fly by Carson Gregory.  Steven Calcutt singled for the seventh run.

Speedster Tyler Tyson had scored the first run of the game as he tripled leading off the Meteor first.  Andrew David drove in Tyson with an RBI groundout.

Tyson tripled again in the third to drive in Brandt Burrows who had reached on a fielder’s choice.  The Meteors scored four times in the top of the fourth cutting the SC lead to 7-6.

Jonathon Diaz doubled to score Jason Heinrick and Donovan Petrey.  Heinrick had reached on an error and Petrey walked.  Cody Brickhouse singled in the sixth run.

Heaton replaced SC starter Pike and recorded a strikeout and groundout, after issuing a walk, to retire the side.

Andrew Filipkowski walked to lead off the Meteor fifth.  Tyson singled for his third hit.  Mike Campoamor drove in the tying run with a grounder to short.  Heinrick walked and attempted to steal second.  Team Carolina’s “text” book execution in first-third defense retired the side with no further damage.

Carson Gregory

Gregory blasted a triple with one out in the bottom of the fifth.  Calcutt and Glover were walked intentionally to load the bases.

Meteor closer Jon Register was summoned from the bullpen.  Register’s frame and arm action were very impressive.  He touched 85 mph on the radar gun.  However, Pike calmly stepped to the plate and smashed the game winning hit to left field.

Matt Pike

Pike started for Carolina and touched 79 mph.  His curve had good “bite” and his mound presence was excellent.  Heaton came in to end the Meteor rally with good command of a “running” two-seamer.

In summary, Carolina has a talented squad.  They have nice lefty-righty balance and hitters who approach game situations well.  However, finding a way to win was what impressed.  The game ended after five inning due to time limit rules.

Their moves are then graded and compared to the other competitors in their respective divisions. Weapons Kata is the same thing, except the use of a martial arts weapon is now being graded.

Classical Tae Kwon Do Studio Opens in Beaufort

September 10, 2010

“Classical Instruction in the Art of Tae Kwon Do” is the motto of Beaufort’s newest martial arts studio, Beaufort Family Karate.  Tim Snyder, owner and instructor, has been studying Tae Kwon Do for nearly twenty years, and his Black Belts are certified through the World Tae Kwon Do Federation in Seoul, South Korea.

After moving to Beaufort in 2008, Snyder formed a martial arts class through the YMCA since no local school offered the traditional style of Korean Tae Kwon Do in which he trained.  As his YMCA program grew, he was invited to teach after-school classes at local schools, and he starting thinking about turning his leisure pursuit into a business. With the support of his family and the encouragement of his master instructor, Sixth Degree Black Belt David Gladwell, Snyder opened Beaufort Family Karate in May 2010.

“I never dreamed I would operate my own studio,” said Snyder, “but I wanted to take my teaching to the next level, for my own kids and for the community.  I tell parents that Tae Kwon Do will change their kid’s life. I believe that with all my heart. I tell adults that Tae Kwon Do will improve their balance and flexibility and is a great way to get fit.”  The studio offers an All Star program for kids 4-7, beginner classes, family classes, and adult classes, as well as private lessons and birthday parties.

“Tim is a fantastic teacher,” said his wife, Julie. “We have six kids, so he is a natural with children. And he is also very good at relating to his mature students and keeping the classes challenging, but not overwhelming. I am amazed at what he is accomplishing with his students.  So much so that I just started taking lessons too.”  The school holds monthly tests for students who are ready to earn their next belt.

As a stand-up martial art that can be practiced life-long, Tae Kwon Do is now an official Olympic sport, with an estimated 50 million students worldwide. Literally translated “the way of the hand and foot,” Tae Kwon Do cultivates poise and concentration, while increasing strength and agility.  Rooted in self-discipline, respect, perseverance and integrity, Taekwondo is a nonaggressive and ethical system of self-defense.

Beaufort Family Karate is located at 745 Robert Smalls Parkway, in the Furniture Warehouse Design Gallery Perimeter Walk. Classes are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings. The school’s website is

Team Beaufort Boasts Three National Titles

August 19, 2010

2010 has been a busy and fantastic year for Beaufort’s weight lifting team, Team Beaufort, who’ve won three national titles.

In March, Team Beaufort, comprised of high school students from Beaufort High School, lifted in the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio.  The team finished as runners-up in the Werksan High School Challenge. Lifting in this event were Seth Andrews, Delvin Broussard, Jonaithan Morgan, Cody Martinez, Lee Carey, Michael Mattis, James Washington, Stefan Moser and Alex Silon.

In June, Team Beaufort was on the road (or air) again and competed in the School Age Nationals.  This event was held in San Francisco, California.  Team Beaufort won the overall National Championship.  Lifters had to meet a national total in the combination of two lifts, the snatch and the clean and jerk.  Both lifts are Olympic-style lifts.

The School Age meet hosts the best athletes in the country.  Male and female lifters from all across the country made their way to San Francisco, California. Athletes that competed were Abby Silon, Tucker Deloach, Dylan Williams, Malcolm Simmons, Andrew Jezewski, Jesse Sanborn, Lee Carey, Howard Graham, Alex Silon and Stefan Moser.  These athletes, who range from 9 to 17 years of age, won this National Championship.

Just recently in July, Team Beaufort hit the road again and lifted in the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) Junior Olympics in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  The 11 and under boys won the National Championship in their age bracket. They were  Casey Simmons, CJ Cummins, Omar Cummins, Joe Fosnight, Tucker Deloach, and Dylan Williams.  The 18 and 19 year old boys also won the National Championship in their respective age bracket. They were Michael Mattis, Alex Silon, Stefan Moser and James Washington.  James Washington was also named the best lifter of the AAU.  Other lifters that won in their age and weight bracket were Abby Silon, Lee Carey, Howard Graham, Jesse Sanborn, Andrew Jezewski and Malcolm Simmons.

Highlighting this team in 2010 with individual honors was Alex Silon. He was selected to represent the US at the 17 and under Pan American Games in Chiclayo, Peru.  Another lifter, James Washington, was selected as the best high school lifter in the country. Also in 2010, James won the USA Weightlifting Junior World Nationals 20 and under National Championship.  He was also a qualifier for the Junior World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.  He won the Bronze Medal at the US Weightlifting National Championship open division.

Team Beaufort could not have made this fabulous representation without the exceptional dedication from the lifters, parents and the COACH.  Coach Ray Jones has taken care of these lifters ranging from age 9 to 18 and coached them in the aspects of lifting with the proper techniques and exceptional sportsmanship.  Coach Ray Jones deserves more than just a pat on the back or a hand shake.  He’s led these athletes to the national spotlight and made competitors and winners out of  these young boys and girl from Beaufort.

In October, Team Beaufort will host their 2nd Weight Lifting event.  This event hopes to draw some of the best athletes on the east coast for competition. If you have any questions or would like to support Team Beaufort please feel free to contact Ray Jones at 843-812-6671.

Beaufort Team Places 3rd at Division II National AAU Basketball Tournament

August 12, 2010

Front Row left to right: Calvin Atkins, Jr., Dante Smalls, Simeon Daise, Head Coach David Francis. Back Row left to right: Rakeem Palmer, Matthew Wade, Ruben Francis, Wayne Bryant, Jr., Dymonte Gwathney

The Unit, a Beaufort AAU team, won third place August 1 in the Junior Boys’ Basketball Division II National Championship at the AAU National Tournament in Orlando, FL.  The 10-member team played nine games during the tournament from July 27-August 1.

“We started off by losing three games in pool play to see who we would be matched up against in bracket play,” said Coach David Francis of Port Royal.  “But we didn’t go down in defeat.  Our initial losses made us have to play the toughest teams in order to win the championship.  We went on a four-game winning streak in single-elimination games.  This took us to the semi-finals.”

The Unit lost in the semi-finals to a team from Raleigh, NC and advanced to consolation games for third or fourth place.  “In the end, we won 54-50 to a team from Long Island, NY,” Francis said.  “We eliminated teams from Richmond, VA; Indianapolis, IN; Augusta, GA and Columbia, SC.  We played hard.  We could’ve gone all the way, but the trophy we received is no small thing.  It reads ‘National Championship’—not ‘Beaufort Championship,’ not ‘South Carolina Championship’ but ‘National!’  We’ve reached this pinnacle in only our second season.”

Francis cited team ship as the key to The Unit’s success.  “I give the guys props for coming together, working as a UNIT, and realizing it takes more than one individual to make things work,” Francis said.  “It has to be done as a group.  They learned what helping their teammates means.  Each player was team captain.  We worked together.”

Team members are  Ruben Francis; Jordan Adderly; Calvin Atkins, Jr.; Wayne Bryant, Jr.; Simeon Daise; Dymonte Gwathney; Tyrone Holmes, Jr.; Rakeem Palmer; Dante Smalls; and Matthew Wade.

“We are thankful,” Francis said, “to our all of our contributors and sponsors, particularly the following individuals:  Pastors Randy and Theresa Roberts of Love House Ministries, Drs. Claude and Ardra Davis-Tolbert of Coastal ObGyn, Bryan Cooler of Stokes Used Cars, Michael Coxwell of Stokes Honda, Tim Stewart of  Butler Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep and Republic Waste.  A HUGE HEARTFELT thanks go especially to Minister Dennis Stormer of Love House Ministries and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.  We will start getting ready for next season soon.”

Habersham Hosts Serving for Backpacks

August 5, 2010

Habersham’s tennis complex has been alive this past week with the sound of childrens’ laughter, the thwack of tennis balls, and the voices of three young coaches.  Thomas Low, Reid Dillon, and Patton Hearn, all students at Charlotte, NC’s Myers Park High School, were in Habersham to teach some local kids the fundamentals of tennis, while at the same time, take donations and raise awareness about the Backpack Buddies Program, a Lowcountry Food Bank endeavor that provides food backpacks for young people at risk of hunger.  Thomas, Reid, and Patton held a similar clinic a few weeks ago in Charlotte, raising money for the local chapter of Second Harvest.  The clinic was such a success that they decided to spend a week in Beaufort and share their love of the game of tennis and their giving spirit with our children.

For four days, Thomas, Reid, and Patton taught the kids the basics of forehand, backhand, and volleying.  The kids then played a variety of games designed to reinforce their newly learned skills.  The ninety-minute clinic typically ended with the younger kids (ages 6-13) hitting balls with the older boys.  Maya Dixon, age 12, said, “I loved it!  Today we learned approach volleys, something I’ve never done before.”
Deb Loesel, from the Lowcountry Food Bank, spoke to the kids on the last day about the difference their donations will make in the lives of kids just like them.  The money and food raised this week will buy food every weekend for the entire school year for three fortunate children.  She thanked Thomas, Reid, and Patton for being such good partners and for coordinating this fun event.  Charlie Bowden, age 6, said, “I can’t believe it’s over.  It’s cool that I got to help some other kids.”

Caroline Carmody Named Girls Player of the Year

By Wendy Pollitzer

July 22, 2010

Caroline Carmody recently won the SCISA 2010 A-AA Girls Player of the Year at the High School Sports Report’s annual Spring Sports Banquet at Seawell’s Restaurant in Columbia.

Carmody, who will be attending Wofford College in the Fall, played Soccer for Beaufort Academy for 4 years. She started with PALS when she was 10 and then moved on to the Blue Crab United League. In addition to playing Soccer, Carmody also played basketball and volleyball for BA. She also takes tennis lessons and enjoys swimming. Caroline is a natural athlete and ambitious student.

When asked with whom she’d like to share this award, Caroline did not hesitate, “I definitely want to share this award with my family, but also all of my teammates. We worked really hard this year, and everyone on the team deserves this award.”  The BA Girls Soccer team also won the State Title this year, which she’d also like to share with BA alumni who went to State for the past 12 years.

“All of these girls deserve this Title. We all played together at some point and learned from each other. We’ve basically had the same core team for many years,” explains Carmody.

Attaining this prestigious award from SCISA (South Carolina Independent School Association) is an enormous feat for modest Carmody.  “I was not expecting to win at all. Achieving Player of the Year for all of the State is a true honor. Actually, it’s awesome,” says Carmody.

Congratulations Caroline for a deserving award, and Good luck at Wofford!

New Look For the Y!

July 22, 2010

For the first time in 43 years, the YMCA has unveiled a new brand strategy.  It will become ”the Y” with a brand new logo that is vibrant and contemporary.  The reasoning behind this plan is to change the way the Y talks about itself so that people better understand the benefits of engaging with the YMCA.

The Wardle Family YMCA is recommitting itself to strengthening the foundations of our community through a renewed focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. “This is a very important time for the Y,” said Mike Bostwick, CEO of Wardle Family YMCA.  “We are the same YMCA with the same Christian principles and practices; however, we are eager to freshen up our logo and image. Although the logo change will be a gradual process, our members, our staff and our youth programs will remain constant here at the Y as we work even harder to meet the everyday needs for a quality life here in our community!”

The Wardle Family YMCA is located on 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal.  New members are always welcome.  If you would like a tour of the facility or more information, stop by 7 days a week or call 522-9622 to speak with one of our friendly staff.

Jered Kraszewski

Paul Kraszewski

As if having some of the area’s best fitness trainers isn’t enough, Get FIT on Lady’s Island features a trainer who also graduated from the Culinary Institute of America. Paul Kraszewski brings an added layer to the services offered at Get FIT, services now available online. The Get FIT website ( features a new tab called Nutrition. There you’ll find articles about diets and eating, as well as a budding list of tasty – and reasonably healthy – meals. The first recipes take advantage of the Lowcountry’s seafood with meals based on shrimp and scallops. “We live in busy times, and many of our clients asked for advice and ideas on how to eat healthier meals that are still really tasty,” said Jered Kraszewski, owner and head trainer at Get FIT and its sister site, City FIT in the City Loft Hotel in historic downtown Beaufort. “It’s one thing to be on a strict diet alone, but when you are trying to prepare meals for a family, that’s a different story,” he said. “The fact that my brother is an excellent chef and understands nutrition, on top of being a great health instructor, is something we want to share.” While personal trainers aren’t uncommon, having one with a degree from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, makes this team a little different. Paul Kraszewski attended Western Connecticut State University for two years, studying management and playing football. He decided then that, along with fitness, his passion was for cooking. That took him to the Culinary Institute of America where he graduated in two years as a chef. Initial recipe listings at include:

  • Scallops Miami
  • Turkey and Three Bean Chili
  • Spicy Pepper Shrimp
  • Seared Scallops & Tropical Salsa

____________________________________________________________________________________________ Beaufort River Swim will be held in June May 20, 2010 This 3.4 mile swim in the Beaufort River, from Port Royal Landing to the dock in downtown Beaufort, is sponsored by and in benefit of the Beaufort County YMCA’s “Learn-to-Swim” program. Beat the Bucket!   The folklore is that if you tossed a bucket in the water at Port Royal Landing, it would take one and a half hours to get to downtown Beaufort.  True or not, more than a few swimmers crow about ‘beating the bucket.’   Clearly, this is ‘with the current.’  Only a fool or super-something would try to swim against this current! This is the fourth year of this swim.  The first year, we had 38 swimmers; the second year we had 76 and last year we had 93.  We continue to grow and will hopefully get more than one hundred this year! While everyone would like to win the much coveted ‘bobble head’ for winning their age group – most just swim for the fun of it.  The bobble head is this cute, little android-looking creature – with a big head, goggles, and a little body on a starting block.  Needless to say, the head bobbles – and these are great trophies to bring home to the kids. This year’s river swim is on June 19th at 9:15AM.  (Full low tide will occur at 9:31.) For additional information email ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Championship Sports Series May 20, 2010 Now is the time to sign up for the 2nd Beaufort Water Festival Championship Sports Series sponsored by Beaufort Memorial Hospital.  Register your team early, as space is limited!  Teams will be required to participate in at least 10 events.  Leader board positions will be posted nightly during the festival for competition tracking.

Robert, Dataw Island A: A long time ago there was a Saturday Night Live routine where Fernando Lamas said, “It is better to look good than to feel good.” The truth is, looking good and feeling good are connected. Health is a broad term – it includes physical health as well as mental health, which is tied to self-image. Ask anyone who was overweight and then trimmed down – they’ll say they not only feel better walking up stairs and carrying in the groceries, but they feel better about themselves. They have more self-confidence, and they tend to be happier. Put another way: Belly fat, often called visceral fat, is the dangerous fat that builds around your internal organs. It’s not the soft, jelly-like fat you can pinch. Sometimes it actually feels hard. By increasing your exercise and decreasing your food intake, you can lose this fat. You’ll see some change when you get on the scale, but mostly your body will notice a difference as the internal organs aren’t so densely packed and can function better. Will you look more fit? Perhaps. Will you feel better? Probably. Will your body perform better and likely bring you longer and better life? You bet. There’s nothing wrong with working out to look better, because the side benefits of good health will also occur. The same way, if you are exercising because a doctor recommended you lower your cholesterol or improve your heart-lung capacity, you’ll probably also be pleasantly surprised to see your jeans fitting better, your bathing suits looking nicer and your attitude growing more confident. What’s the best way to gain good health and a tighter, more confident body? Anything that gets you moving will help, along with improved eating and less alcohol drinking. A simple walk around the neighborhood each night after dinner is a great start. Walking into a gym for the first time can be intimidating, so a great way to test the waters is to take a group exercise class. These classes typically range from 30-45 minutes and are designed for a range of people, from first-timers to experienced athletes. You’ll likely get a good mix of cardiovascular, strength and stretch conditioning. There are a couple of approaches to group classes that are somewhat new to the area, including Functional Fitness which incorporates common movements used in daily life; Boot Camp, a fun take-off on the military training routine that uses a lot of bodyweight exercises rather than gym equipment; and Cardio Strike classes, which blend basic martial arts moves and non-stop action to create a great way to torch the fat and tone the tummy. Any of these classes, or working out on your own or with a trainer, will bring great results – whether your goal is to look good, to feel good or just to be good. Jered Kraszewski is owner and head trainer at Get FIT, located on Lady’s Island behind Video Warehouse. He is a Nesta Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant.

The regatta was held on Saturday, April 10 in Port Royal Sound. This is a PHRF regatta for sailboats 20 feet in length or longer. Two classes of boats raced in ideal conditions. Class B was for racing boats and Class C was for cruising boats. A good turnout of thirteen boats raced with five in Class B and eight in Class C. Two races were held for each class with the first being an around the buoys race in Port Royal Sound and the second was a race across the sound and then up the Beaufort River to the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club. The wind was blowing at 12 to 18 MPH out of the Northeast to make for excellent sailing. In Class B the winner was PRIME MERIDIAN II with Julian Levine as skipper.

Experienced lacrosse players and coaches will be present to teach new players. Experienced players will have the opportunity to enhance their skills and will play some “small-sided” limited contact games. Rising 7th graders and older are invited. We hope to have a JV and Varsity team in Spring 2011 so we really need younger players to come out and learn to play this exciting sport. No charge for participation. Lacrosse practice sticks and balls will be provided. Medical release forms will need to be signed by parents/guardians of all participants. Players should wear appropriate shorts/shirts and shoes/cleats and bring water. Any questions, please call or email David Cherry at 522-1620 or _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Wahoo Madness and Dreams of the May Cobia Run by Capt. Tom Thomas Apr. 22, 2010 WAHOO is the one of the fastest fish in these waters with top speeds of 50 miles per hour!  It is listed as one of the fastest fish in the world.  A huge Wahoo can spool a 50W Penn reel with 80-pound monofilament line in less than 1.5 minutes.  A Wahoo strike is the most awesome thing in saltwater fishing.  We recently had our best two days of Wahoo fishing ever!  I call it “Wahoo Madness”.  We found a huge school of feeding Wahoo and they were ferocious.  At first light, they cleaned off my Tuna rigs with 300- pound monofilament and 200 pound fluorocarbon lines in less than 5 minutes.  We immediately switched to all wire and we were reeling in doubles in no time!  No one on board got to rest or take a break for over 5 hours.  When the action was over we had 7 large Wahoo in the box.  Two were huge 55 and 57 pounders.  The average fish was in the 40-pound range.  We finally got a drink of water and a sandwich before we headed home.  Everyone on board caught the largest Wahoo of their life.  Two caught the all time biggest fish of their life that day.  We all decided that was our best day of fishing in Beaufort, South Carolina. The next day we had a triple with just three people on board!  Everyone was fighting a 40- pound class Wahoo at the same time.  Mates Mills and Taylor did a great job and we got all three of them in the boat!  The bite only lasted for 5 minutes.  We finally picked up another huge one just before we decided to call it a day and head back to the hill! Taylor Thomas caught a huge 56.74 pounder and edged me out by .2 pounds in the Beaufort Sportfishing Club’s year round tournament.  We currently have 9 first place categories!  The Hilton Head Wahoo Shootout is coming up in two weeks and we are hoping for good weather and the hot fishing to continue. The water temperatures are rising fast now and by the time this hits the stands the Cobia run will be in full swing!  Beaufort Cobia fishing is some of the best in the country and it also ranks as one of the best places for Cobia fishing in the world.  They will start in offshore waters in mid April and will peak in the Broad River in mid to late May.  Water temperatures of 68 degrees will bring them in and I believe that they spawn around 69 degrees.  Beaufort has the State Record fish and it keeps getting beaten in Beaufort waters.  I believe two or three State Record fish were caught last year.   They head back out to sea and can be caught over structure throughout June and July. Wahoo is my favorite fish to eat!  I love it grilled over a charcoal fire and then I make a grilled Wahoo salad for later.  You can’t beat it.  Ask your favorite restaurant for grilled Wahoo.  Saltus and Breakwater currently have fresh local Wahoo.  Cobia is a great tasting fish as well.  I think grilled is the best tasting and blackened is good, too. Get your boat ready or book a Charter now!  You don’t want to miss this awesome action.  Topgun Charters will be fishing for Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi and Cobia during May out of the Downtown Marina! You can contact me at (843) 812-2934,, or visit my website at Come try us out!  You can also try Port Royal Landing Marina for inshore and near shore Charters as well. Tight lines to ya! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Mark Anderson to Play in Bill Verity Cup Apr. 22, 2010 The Beaufort Area Boys & Girls Clubs will be holding the Bill Verity Cup Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament at Sanctuary Golf Course on Cat Island.

For several years, Foster has sailed successfully and has been awarded the Top Junior Skipper Award at the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club (BYSC). He has claimed both the North Carolina and South Carolina State Championships in the Junior Laser Radial Fleet.  He has also been awarded the 2008 and 2009 South Atlantic Yacht Racing Association(SAYRA) Radial and Junior Radial Champion.  In addition to winning the SAYRA awards, he has also won the Laser District 12 (NC, SC & GA) Radial and Junior Radial fleets for 2008 and 2009.  He recently placed third in the Carolina Yacht Club Easter Regatta, he knows he has to move a little faster to keep his titles this season! Marshall served as co captain of his high school sailing team for three years and qualified as an 8th grader for the National Great Oaks Invitational regatta in New Orleans.  The Club 420 was the boat used for high school sailing.  His hope was to continue high school sailing when he transferred to the high school but starting a team has not been easy.  “Sailing is a great sport where girls and boys can compete equally.  I just wish the local sailors and schools would support it like they do in other areas of the state”, reports Foster. Many inland high schools, as well as coastal schools send teams to compete in the Inter -Scholastic Sailing Association (ISSA).  Our district is South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association(SAISA) and includes NC, SC, GA, and upper FL.  Additionally, sailors who want to continue the sport in college can find a variety of schools with teams.  The College of Charleston has a strong men’s and women’s team, well ranked nationally. In addition to sailing fast, sporting clays has also been a favorite way to enjoy shooting.  His 3 man squad was the 2009 State Junior Varsity Champion. He is working hard to become the varsity state champion this year.  Like sailing, this was a difficult sport to try to start at the high school level.  He found that there were no teams in Beaufort so he joined the Back Woods Quail Club in Georgetown, SC. His 3 man squad won their first match at Hermitage Farms in Camden, SC.  He will compete this weekend at Rocky Creek in Richburg, SC on a squad that includes a girl, Rachael Hemingway.  “I am glad she is on my team, she is a really good shot”, grins Foster.  This is another sport where the girls and boys can be equally competitive.  The State Championship will be held in May at Back Woods Quail Club. Interested sailors and shooters should contact the head coach at their high school, home school, or church. Too Heavy to Hold. Apr. 15, 2010 Ladys Island local residents Jim Gettys, Sam Chestnut, Captain Ralph Worrell, and Captain Frank Gibson display a few of their Wahoos caught off the Beaufort coast line near the Gulf Stream. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Donate to YMCA-Make a Difference!

Student Volunteers who will be helping with Heads Up: SERVICE WINNERS from left to right (front): Charlotte Cannon, Kelsey Butler, Julie Edwards, Khushboo Arora (Back): Charlotte Bellomy, Marian Hohenwarter, Malcolm Kates, Addie Everidge and Chelsea Bellomy

Service Winners is a tennis event created by Marian Hohenwarter, a junior at Beaufort High School and upcoming number one player on the Beaufort High girls’ tennis team. Marian, daughter of Mark and Susan Hohenwarter, wants to “enthuse the community about tennis, especially young kids.” She says, “ Tennis teaches lessons that allow you to stay disciplined throughout life. It’s also a great way to stay in shape and remain healthy.” This event’s purpose is to raise money for the Saint Vincent De Paul Society food distribution center located adjacent to the high school. The society collects money and distributes food to needy locals. Another purpose is to spark an interest in tennis in the community. Attendants of this donation-only tennis clinic will be divided into three groups based on current skill level. However, those who have never played tennis before need not be hesitant! All that is needed is a racquet and a willingness to play. Age does not matter. Hohenwarter explains that this is the first event of its kind in Beaufort. “ I would love for it to get popular and have it be a monthly get-together. People will be able to see how they’ve improved.” There will be drills developing strokes and tennis related games for each group led by members of Beaufort High’s very own boys’ and girls’ tennis teams. Parents are encouraged to bring their young, aspiring tennis players to this relaxed, fun filled afternoon Sunday, April 11th from 2:00pm to 5:00pm! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Beaufort Youth Place in Soccer Tournament Apr. 8, 2010 The Beaufort Crew U-14 and the Beaufort Wild Boyz U-11 participated in the Spring Fling 3v3 tournament in North Charleston on Saturday April 3, 2010.  The Beaufort Crew took first place in the U14 division.  The Beaufort Wild Boyz took third place in the U10/U11 division.  Both teams qualify for the state championship and the 3v3 World tour nationals.

The sun smiled brightly upon the 16th Annual Waste Management CAPA Golf Challenge on March 19th and 20th on Dataw Island. Seventy golfers played the Cotton Dike Course on Friday and 51 golfers played the Morgan River Course on Saturday.  Friday evening, the players, sponsors, spouses and guests enjoyed an evening together at the Hilton Garden Inn of Beaufort while local singer, Susan Hollingsworth, entertained them all. “We really appreciate the relationship we’ve built with the Dataw residents and club. Not only did they open their golf courses for two days, some of their residents volunteered countless hours to the event. The management and staff of the Hilton Garden Inn provided a top notch evening event. A big thank you to Waste Management, our title sponsor, with whom we’ve had a rewarding 16-year relationship. Without the help of the countless CAPA volunteers, board members, Exchange Club members, and others dedicated to breaking the cycle of child abuse and neglect in our community, this tournament would not be a success,” said Golf Challenge Coordinator Jessie Chapman. The CAPA Golf Challenge netted over $16,000 this year. Congratulations to this year’s winners: The Friday Team Winners (Cotton Dike Course):

  • 1st Place: Bryan Rushton, Shawn Heimbach, Tyler King and David Blankenship

Marc W. Fisher, Jr. President Sea Island Rotary Club _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Lacrosse in Beaufort By Thomas Gruel Mar. 25, 2010 The fastest sport on two feet is quickly becoming the fastest growing sport in America.  Lacrosse, a sport that was created by the Native Americans, has found a strong following among American teens within the last ten years with many high schools and colleges adding programs to their athletic departments. In 2000, only 1273 high schools in the U.S. had registered lacrosse programs.  In 2007, that number had grown to 2612 with numerous programs sprouting up outside of the northeast (the hotbed for Boys High School Lacrosse).  Beaufort has recently joined the act, forming the Beaufort Lacrosse Club. The Beaufort team, consisting of over 20 kids from Beaufort High, Beaufort Academy, and Battery Creek, started practice Feb. 1 and has played three games so far and numerous scrimmages. “We have a lot of games on our schedule against teams from Charleston and from Georgia,” defenseman Morgan Martinez said.  “There is a lot of travelling involved, but all of us really enjoy it.” Martinez became involved with lacrosse at a young age with his brother, yet fell out of the sport because the club he was going to play with folded.  The opportunity to play for a local team was a quick sell to the senior who also has played football and soccer during his high school career. “A lot of my friends were getting involved with this local team, so I thought that I should give it a try,” Martinez said.  “The sport itself is one of the roughest out there, but it is completely worth it.” Lacrosse is becoming popular all over the US for many different reasons.  Martinez explains that the speed of the game easily appeals to the younger crowd along with the competitive nature of the sport. “There are no breaks at all,” Martinez said.  “Each team always has an opportunity to score and each team normally averages close to ten goals a game.” The game has gained national attention thanks to media coverage of several professional games as well as college playoffs.  The growth of youth programs has also drawn more kids to the sport, allowing them to learn the rules and become more involved at a young age. “The sport is kind of a mixture of hockey, football, and soccer,” Martinez said.  “We use skills from all of these sports in lacrosse.  We want to create a program that will last for awhile here in the Lowcountry.” The Beaufort Club team plays in Myrtle Beach this weekend and continues to play games through the end of April. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Athlete of the Week-Garrett Jepson Garrett Jepson of Lady’s Island Elementary set two individual division records at Stackfest 2010 by winning the 3-3-3 in 2.34 and the 3-6-3 in 3.25.  He also won his division in the Cycle with a 9.13.  His doubles team came in second in its division and his relay team, Hot Pink, was the overall fastest of the day setting a new overall state record.  He was the all around champion of the meet and set a new school mark of 14.72 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Arsenal vs. Celtic Festival: Serious about Soccer Mar. 18, 2010 A great time was had by all this past Saturday as Savannah Celtic FC visited Beaufort Arsenal FC for a morning of soccer.  In all, fifty players participated from Beaufort and Savannah. Savannah Celtic brought 5 teams in the U7 through U10 age groups to play against Arsenal at Basil Green on what turned out to be a gorgeous spring day.  Varsity players from both Beaufort High and Battery Creek soccer teams worked as referees for the event. In the U7/8 divisions, the teams played 3v3, and in the U10 division they played 6v6.  All age groups experimented with playing the ‘Four Goal Game.’ Beaufort Arsenal FC’s Director of Coaching, Chris Jenkins, explained, “We have used the ‘Four Goal Game’ for several years during practice. We borrowed the structure and rules of the game from the world renowned Dutch Football Federation, which has used this game for over twenty-five years as a core element of its National Team training.  The reason we play the ‘Four Goal Game’ at the U10 and under level is because we want to foster dynamic and creative players who are able to navigate through their opponents’ defense by using the whole field.  Young players who are still developing the ability to control the ball must learn to move and pass in all directions, not just in straight lines toward a single goal; the Four Goal Game facilitates this learning process.” Another unique aspect of the competition was that Beaufort Arsenal and Savannah Celtic agreed beforehand that they wanted to create a positive atmosphere in which to play soccer.  Parents were given flyers explaining the rules asking them to encourage the players (with enthusiasm!) but not to instruct or criticize them from the sidelines. “That’s a new idea for most of us, myself included,” said Karen Bhoi, who has three boys in the Beaufort Arsenal FC program, “but it is a good one.  It gives the players the freedom to make their own decisions on the field, and by allowing that, they learn faster.  They become better players because they feel that they own the game.” Overall, it was a great day of fun for everyone with the score-line showing that Beaufort Arsenal FC had the edge on the competitions with nine wins, four losses and one tie. “However,” Chris Jenkins noted, “we measure our success more by the quality of play and the level of enjoyment of the players, and both teams put on a fine exhibition of youth soccer.  Winning in and of itself doesn’t mean everything at this level. It is more important to develop confident, thoughtful and creative players.” Beaufort Arsenal FC formed in the wake of the dissolution of Blue Crab United soccer club in 2008.  Many of the current players were members of that same club. Beaufort Arsenal FC currently have forty-six players in ages from U-14 down to U-7 with four head coaches and several volunteers across the groups.  For more information on their program please see their website at _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Athlete of the Week-Carson Gregory Mar. 11, 2010 Congratulations go out to 8th Grade Lady’s Island Middle School student Carson Gregory for making the Beaufort High School JV baseball team! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Beaufort High Softball Teams Begin Season Mar. 11, 2010

Way to go Lilly! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ DRUG-FREE Athletic Performance Enhancement By Dr. Jennifer Wallace Mar. 4, 2010 Your jaw is the key and you can now unlock the power that you never knew was there! No one has ever told you that relaxing your jaw could help you perform better, have they?  That’s because no one knew!  Hundreds of years ago, a few people were on to something: Ancient Greek athletes bit down on leather straps for an added edge during competition; Viking and Roman warriors clamped down on leather bits for focus on the battlefield. They knew that they had something that worked, but the concept itself never evolved, until now. Performance Mouthwear has been engineered to unlock your true power and potential. Performance Mouthwear is a completely new category of performance gear designed for all athletes who are looking to get better in their chosen sport.  These skills and abilities are all in you, but unbeknownst to the average person, it is blocked by one of the human body’s instinctive reflex systems, teeth clenching. With safe, custom-built Performance Mouthwear, athletes in any sport—from football to golf, hockey to running, cycling to basketball, and yoga to baseball—can capitalize on this innovation that reduces Cortisol (the stress hormone) and Lactic Acid which in turn increases a person’s performance levels. While traditional athletic mouth guards provide protection, Performance Mouthwear, which includes mouthpieces and mouth guards with patented technology from Bite Tech, does more: It enhances performance. Your dentist will make accurate impressions of your top and bottom teeth. A bite registration will be taken as well. The process is completely painless and usually takes less than 20 minutes. The normal time for the lab to fabricate your Performance Mouthwear is about 2 weeks. The Under Armour Performance Mouthwear (UAPM) is powered by Armourbite Technology.  Armourbite has fifteen years of research and development as well as approval of satisfied Professional, Collegiate, Amateur and Novice athletes.  The technology is patented.  The performance is proven.  The advantages are undeniable. It is not only backed by some of the biggest names in pro sports, it’s also recommended by dentists, pro trainers, strength coaches and wellness experts. UAPM is being used by many professional and Olympic athletes to improve their performance at the highest levels. “I tried it, not only on the field but off the field during workouts. I could feel the difference in my endurance. I was stronger, my body felt better.” Adrian Peterson, Running Back, Minnesota Vikings and UAPM Bitetech Investor. “It has increased my strength, power and heightened my accuracy.” Hunter Mahan, PGA Pro. “The weights didn’t feel so heavy.” David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox. “I have noticed feeling more relaxed while riding.” Sarah Haskins, Pro Triathlete, US Olympian. The Scientifically proven advantages of wearing the UAPM – Reduced lactic acid keeps the muscles stronger for a longer period of time – Lower Cortisol production reduces the “stress response” (decreased heart rate, etc.), which allows the athlete to perform more effectively under less physiological stress. – Faster reaction times (important for sports like baseball and tennis, which are defined by extremely short “decision-to-action” responses) -UAPM will improve the physiological performance of all athletes, and help them participate in their sport at a higher level. There are studies published in peer-reviewed journals to support these claims. Visit the “Science & Research” section on UAPM is a DRUG-FREE performance enhancement! Dr. Jennifer Wallace practices full scope general and cosmetic dentistry. She is well versed in every aspect of dentistry and would not promote a product in which she does not believe in. The research speaks for itself with the Under Armour Performance Mouthwear, and it is great for ages 8 years and up. Schedule your appointment with Palmetto Smiles of Beaufort, the only authorized provider in Beaufort, and experience peak performance for yourself. We welcome you, your friends, and your family to visit our website or contact our office today 843-524-7645 to find out more information about this exciting new product. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Beaufort Equestrians qualify to go to Zone Championships Feb. 25, 2010

Meredith Robinson

Alicia Pinckney Story and Elise Marshall

Two Beaufort Equestrians competing on the Storybook Farm Riding Team have not only qualified individually to go to the Zone Championships, but also assisted their high school and middle school teams in qualifying.  Meridith Robinson, a Junior at Beaufort High School has been the consistent high point rider in the intermediate equitation division on flat and over fences. Throughout the season, Elise Marshall, a home-schooled 8th grader, has also been the high point rider for her future novice equitation flat and fences divisions. Beaufort native, Coach Alicia Pinckney Story is very pleased with her entire team, as this is their first year competing. There are 8 riders on each of her teams who are allowed to attend a maximum of 5 Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Shows in an effort to qualify to go to the Zone Championship. The First and Second place riders in each division at the Zone Championships, which will be held Feb. 27 at Storybook Farm on John’s Island will then qualify to go to the National Championship in Atlanta. Storybook Farm is also home to the College of Charleston Equestrian Team and coached by Bob Story. IEA offers both Hunt Seat and Western Shows for Middle and High School riders from public, private and home schools. Athlete of the Week-Justin Parker Justin Parker signs with Clemson by Thomas Gruel, Beaufort High School Feb. 25, 2010 As the months turned into weeks and weeks into days, linebacker Justin Parker knew that his decision about what school he wanted to play football for was quickly approaching.  After numerous visits and countless phone calls from the likes of coaches such as Steve Spurrier and Dabo Swinney, Parker was ready to choose. On Feb. 3, national signing day, Parker sat at a table with his mother and father with three hats in front of him.  All 3 represented his top college choices: Clemson, South Carolina (USC), and Louisiana State (LSU).  And after placing the Clemson hat on his father and the USC hat on his mother, Parker pulled his own Clemson hat from his lap, placing it on his head and signaling to the anticipatory crowd that he was headed to Death Valley. “Clemson is where I felt the most comfortable,” Parker said.  “I saw a lot of things that I liked such as the small town atmosphere and the fact that Clemson graduates almost all of its seniors.” Under Armour’s Jaw-Dropping Technology Now Available to Beaufort Athletes Feb. 25, 2010 Visiting the dentist’s office has long been proven to improve a person’s overall health and prevent future dental issues.

Offshore Winter Wonderland by Taylor Thomas Feb. 11, 2010 Sea condition: 1 foot; Destination: a ledge 100 miles out;  Species: Blackfin Tuna; Boat: TopGun 5; Date: Jan. 28, 2010. We were all at the boat by 4 a.m. excited and ready to make the 3-hour journey to our Tuna spot. We had no idea what the day was about to behold. We always start off each trip with a prayer and the playing of the song “Danger Zone,” most commonly known from the movie Topgun.  Once we got to our destination we got out five rods and started rigging up for the Blackfin. The lines were in the water by 7:30 a.m.  We started trolling up and down the ledge at 8 knots for two hours with no strikes or even a glimpse of a fish coming up to the surface.  We were all starting to get discouraged, then in the snap of a finger Blackfin were jumping out of the water in every which direction chasing bait to the surface; it was a sight to see. We started trolling closer to where the schools we surfacing; within minutes the drag started screaming and we were hooked up with our first fish of the day.  Vickie Dispoto was the first angler up to bat; they always say women first. She fought the Tuna around 15 minutes and was getting tired but the fish wasn’t giving up quite yet. Minutes later I gaffed the Tuna and got him in the boat. We bled it and put it on ice. Vickie was so excited her smile was from ear to ear and it was her first Blackfin. We then started trolling around again waiting for the next strike. Throughout the day we all got to catch a Tuna. We caught 7 ranging from 20 – 30 Lbs. The biggest catch of the day was caught by Capt. Tom Thomas, which weighed 32.4 Lbs. It was only 7 Lbs. shy of the South Carolina State Record. We all had an awesome day of fishing and I will never forget that day. Offshore fishing in the winter off the coast of South Carolina still produces many fish to catch like: Tuna, Wahoo, Grouper, Snapper, and many other species as well. I encourage everyone to go offshore fishing at least once in their lifetime.  If you’re looking for a charter I recommend Topgun Charters, which is located at the Downtown Marina. You can reach Capt. Tom Thomas on his cell at (843) 812-2934 or send him an email at You can also view his website  I hope everyone has a great year of fishing.   Catch’em up! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Get Fit Facts How long does it take to get back in shape? by Jered Kraszewski Feb. 11, 2010 Q: I’ll admit it, I’ve been glued to the couch for too long. My wife says it’s time to get up and get some exercise – how long until I’m in decent shape? I’m probably 30 pounds heavier than I should be, maybe a little more, and I’m 45. Travis, St. Helena Island A:  As with all problems, the biggest first step is admitting there is a problem. So, congratulations for taking that first step! Trust me, you aren’t alone. About this time of year, millions of people across the country, and thousands right here in Beaufort, are coming to the same conclusion. A season of holiday eating, of watching football and basketball on TV with a bowl of cheese nachos or popcorn in our lap, coupled with the cold weather we had to start the New Year, it all takes a toll on our bodies. With springtime just a calendar page away, now’s a great time to commit to getting back in shape. What’s your first move? If it’s been awhile since you exercised, or if you are 20 or more pounds overweight, go see your doctor for a check-up. That gives you the peace of mind that your body is ready to shed that weight and your doctor can advise you of any exercises you need to avoid – or ones you should emphasize. Now, your basic question is how long will it take to get back in shape and to lose those 30-plus pounds. The answer is that it depends on how committed you are to exercise and proper nutrition. Here’s where a certified trainer can help a lot. He or she can guide you through the proper exercises, tell you what to do at home such as walk or jog, and can also help with some nutrition tips. Here’s a short version of what we might recommend, depending on what your doctor says and other assessments we would do for you:

  1. Try a group exercise class once a week. This is a great way to get motivated with other people, to learn new movements and to have a lot of fun in 45 minutes to an hour. These classes typically work your whole body and include cardio, so you’ll be helping your heart and lungs get back in shape at the same time you are losing weight and toning your muscles.
  2. Try one-on-one training or our tag-team training for more focused instruction
  3. In between, try going for a walk around your neighborhood with your family. If you can make this a family tradition twice a week, you’ll find the kids sleep better, they develop healthy habits and you lead by example.

As you build your strength and endurance, you can try running around your neighborhood or the local high school track – the active you are, and the more often you are active, the quicker you’ll shed those unwanted pounds.

Moving with purpose-the Nia technique by Dragana Pavic-Zappia Feb. 4, 2010 With a philosophy rooted in “the joy of movement,” Nia teaches people of all lifestyles to use the sensation of pleasure as a map toward physical, mental and emotional health. The mood is set by taking a deep breath, setting focus and intension for the practice. Students are invited to smell the moment, and then consciously step IN, step into Now. Class begins with soothing sounds and warm-ups through breath, visualization and slow movement. Feet, which we call,  “the Hands that touch the Earth,” are planted and strong, but soft and fluid as the body warms up. Three movement forms are integrated to create diversity of movement and expression. Martial Arts emphasize focus, intent and precision. Tai Chi, the slow Dance, Tae Kwon Do, the dance of precision, and Aikido, the dance of spherical harmonious motion are separately utilized. Dance Arts emphasize expression. Jazz, with its fun and showmanship energy, Duncan Dance, with its spirited honest movement and Modern Dance, free expression creating shapes through space are all integrated in the hour-long class. Healing Arts, the body integrative movement form, emphasize healing. Moshe Feldenkrais, which expresses the energy of conscious feeling of movement, the Alexander Technique, which expresses the movement from the top of the crown and Yoga, the conscious dance of alignment are all taught as well. Nia KATA (routine) is a one-hour long exercise or practice expressing the energies, voices and sounds of these forms. You’ll hear students shouting YES! with the kicks of Tea Kwon Do or NO! with the chopping motion of arms, whispering with the dance of Tai Chi, and singing like sounds to express energy of Aikido. Sounding is a wonderful way to express emotions, and release tension and stress, combined with movement and sweating…watch out!!! Students are encouraged to move with their range of motion and comfort with their intensity level and to listen to the voices of their own body saying, “Yes, this feels good!” Class cools down with the sounds of music and moving meditation. The group then moves into floorplay and ends with a dynamic step out of the practice and into the rest of the lives with the words, “Keep Dancing Through Life.” There is NO competition in Nia class. Everybody is encouraged to express themselves through their own body language, through their own movement. They make their own dance, listening to their body and loving their body just the way it is!!! Joy is the soul and source of Nia, Joy of Movement being principle number 1 of 13 principles. Joy is not a technique or method, it is a sensation and attitude for Life. Nia is for everyone! Classes are attended by bodies of all ages, shapes and sizes and people from all lifestyles, professions and movement backgrounds. Athletes, Dancers, Fibromyalgia and Alzheimer patients are all side-by-side.  Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, Nia provides a platform for exploring and aligning every aspect of the human experience. For more info about Nia go to or visit You may also call Dragana Pavic Zappia, Licensed Nia White Belt at (843) 476 1388. If you are an innovative and creative soul, dance to your own beat, crazy about art, are a free thinker, create your own style, dig music, love moving, sweating and living out loud, you will surely fall in love with Nia! Dragana Pavic-Zappia teaches Nia at Yoga Chandra Center for the Healing Arts on Lady’s Island. Classes are held on Tuesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 11am. There is also a Nia New Moon Celebration every New Moon. The next celebration will be on February 14th at 2pm. It will be called, Moving with Purpose for a higher purpose-Dance for Haiti, open to Universal Joy and Love. A $15 donation is suggested.

How can I make exercise classes and personal training fit together without overdoing it? Sandi, Lady’s Island A: This is a dream question for someone in the fitness business! But, you bring up a good point – can there be too much of a good thing? The short answer to your question is you certainly can enjoy group exercise classes and working out with a personal trainer, if you take care of your scheduling and listen to your body. You don’t say how old you are, but that will weigh in to our discussion, too. Here’s what I mean. If you are 25 years old and have been exercising, your body can adjust to handling more work – and more workouts – a lot easier than the body of someone who is 45 or 60. At the younger age your body can accommodate the increased workload and continue to grow stronger. In fact, mixing up your workouts is a great way to spur muscle growth or fat loss. At the older age, tendons are more brittle, the growth hormones aren’t as high, and the muscles seem like they stay sore longer, right? That makes it a little more challenging to find safe and healthy ways to increase your exercise regimen without paying a price in injuries. What I’d suggest would be finding two or three exercise classes that you enjoy and that fit in with your fitness goals. For instance, if you want to lose weight, a “power class” of using light dumbbells and bodyweight resistance combined with aerobics is a good choice. If you mainly want to improve cardiovascular endurance – to strengthen your heart and lungs – an indoor Spinning class would be one way to go. Other options include Pilates, kickboxing or mixed martial arts, and boot camp classes. Find a couple you like and see how the exercise class schedule lines up. Basically, I’d suggest you take two group classes a week and work out with your personal trainer once or twice a week. That leaves three days for other activities – a neighborhood walk with your family, a light run with a friend maybe. You need a least one day of rest to help your body recuperate – and maybe another day off if you are older and not used to so much exercise. Be sure to tell your trainer, or your training partner, that you are taking group classes, and explain what type of class it is. This will help your trainer better understand your body. This is important so that he or she can tailor a workout that won’t over-stress the same muscle groups you worked out in group class. For instance, if you took a Spinning class on indoor bikes, your trainer may want to emphasize upper body work, knowing your legs and cardio system got a good workout the day before. Group classes are fun and bring an added element of social enjoyment to exercise. It’s also an inexpensive way to improve your fitness level. Personal training allows you to work one-on-one with an expert to help you reach your fitness goals. Put them together and you’ve created a unique way to get fit!

Leading up to the race, two locals in training agreed to share their preparations: Experienced athlete and USCB Professor Robert “Chip” Landrum and Merrill Lynch’s Lauren Pearson, a rookie to the biathlon and mother of a nine-month-old child… Robert Landrum Monday, 14 December Took advantage of a break in the endless rain to run the ol’ stand-by, the Port Royal Perambulation, with the howling hound-dog.  4 miles, including 3 trips up the tower, the Sands beach, the boardwalk sprint, and all the woods.  Resolved to lift but never got to the gym. Tuesday, 15 December Swam, 2050 yds.  Resolved to lift but really couldn’t after the swim.  I gotta be more regular with the swimming, considering the surgery that didn’t quite fix my left shoulder. Wednesday, 16 December Lifted, finally.  And the rain fell… Thursday, 17 December And the rain fell, cancelling biking or running. Friday, 18 December One last run in intermittent rain with the dog before I leave for Colorado.  With the injunction to never run the same route twice in a row in mind, we went the long way through Mossy Oaks, then round the skatepark, not quite 5 miles. Saturday, 19 December Travel, no workout. Sunday, 20 December Skiing at Loveland Basin, 12,000 feet above Beaufort. Monday, 21 December Run, 35:00 round the park.  Had to walk several times, let’s blame it on the altitude. Tuesday, 22 December Went to lift at the Y, but the sight of an empty lane drew me into the pool for a mile.  Began with a 600, and descended in length with greater intensity for a total of 1850.  Swimming at altitude is always a bit discouraging. Wednesday, 23 December Lifted at the Y, thanks to the YMCA international co-operation agreement. Thursday, 24 December Furiously shopping and driving around.  No workout. Friday, 25 December Christmas day, freakishly cold outside, who’re you kidding?  No workout. Saturday, 26 December Got a late start to Wolf Creek.  Once there competed in the recreational skier’s triathlon: RUN to the hot tub, SWIM across it, RUN back to the house.   No Workout. Sunday 27 December Wolf Creek ski area, good snow and newly tuned boards.  Bang bumps and climb for freshies, all at 11,000 feet.  Then come down with a wicked, nasty sore throat, thanks to sister’s adorable kids. Monday, 28 December Lie in bed and mope, sick. Tuesday, 29 December Wolf Creek beckons, climb for fresh off-piste snow.  From the top of the lift about 30 minutes of chest-pounding labor brings one to the peak above the area.  The San Juans appear to the south, the Sangre de Cristo range is windblown to the east, and in the Collegiate Peaks shine hazy in the north.  This is not training, this is why we train. Thirteen turns and we’re back to the in-bounds terrain. Wednesday, 30 December Lift at the Y. Thursday, 31 December Ride the bike, through ice and snow, to the Y to lift.  The sinuses are not yet recovered to the point of running. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Beaufort High hosts Lowcountry Wrestling Tournament Jan 7, 2010 Saturday, Beaufort High will host five teams in the annual Lowcountry Wrestling Tournament, including region powerhouse Fort Dorchester, ranked #1 in AAAA competition.

Current members are encouraged to come and try the new classes, too – and if they bring a friend who joins, the members will receive $50 toward one-on-one training, Kraszewski said. The “fit” in Get FIT stands for “Fully Integrated Training,” Kraszewski said, which is the philosophy behind his approach to health and fitness at the new gym. “We are starting our Shirt Advancement System (SAS) that gives guidance and reassurance to our new members, while still offering fitness goals that would challenge the fiercest of triathletes,” Kraszewski said. “Experienced members become leaders in the classroom and welcome newcomers in with assistance and setting the example during class workouts. We have set the steps aside and are taking group classes to the next level. “Each shirt level will be accompanied by a fitness test to show the members progress and demonstrate the ability to perform at levels never seen before,” he said.  “Usually people are welcomed to the gym with a trip to the scale, some poor version of a body fat percentage measurement, followed by a lecture on how out of shape and overweight they are. We don’t see the world the same way at Get FIT. “We believe that just showing up to the health club should be rewarded. Positive reinforcement during exercises are found here, no scales or lectures that you need to lose weight. Instead of the lectures, let’s get started. There is something for everyone, every age, and every price range. “The classes are fun, innovative and take place in various spaces such at the downtown Waterfront Park, the FIT Pit, the beach, and of course in our new sprung floored group classroom that’s designed to protect hips, knees and ankles during exercise,” he said. Kraszewski – pronounced kra-SHEF-ski —  is owner and head trainer at Get FIT / Lowcountry Health and Fitness. He brings more than nine years of Marine Corps fitness and martial arts experience. Kraszewski played football in high school and at Bryant College in Rhode Island. He left school to join the Marine Corps and later earned his bachelor’s degree in business management with a concentration in exercise science. While in the Corps, he was in charge of the Body Composition Program. At Camp Lejeune, Parris Island Recruit Depot and Camp Hansen in Japan, he ran the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, a mixture of martial arts designed for deadly consequences. Jered is a black belt instructor in mixed martial arts. He was medically retired from the Corps in 2008 as a staff sergeant. Kraszewski is a Nesta Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant. Throughout Saturday’s grand re-opening, free Fit Fare and beverages will be available, along with other health-related information. The event is free and open to the public. “This new program is designed to adapt to our trying economic times,” Kraszewski said. “I did away with the contracts for training because who knows what they will be doing in six months? The group classes are taught by multiple health specialists to ensure proper form, motivation, and that we raise the quality control in class environment. “We understand that not everyone can afford to do one on one sessions, and even though these are very much a part of our health club, it is not necessary to pay for them to get the personal touch here. “We are raising the bar across the board for quality health clubs in the Lowcountry,” Kraszewski said. “We believe people deserve a high quality, clean and friendly environment to embrace their fitness ambitions and longevity desires.” Saturday demonstration classes The following group classes will be demonstrated at Saturday’s Get FIT event located on Sams Point Road behind Video Warehouse, with regular class times listed: 7 a.m. Saturday: Mas Que Bastante (Mon-Wed-Fri, 6 a.m.) Trainers Paul Kraszewski Jr. and Josh Quesada combine their backgrounds of soccer, football, and core specialty to offer a challenging and fun total body workout 8 a.m. Saturday: Elasticity (Tues, Thurs, 8:30-9 a.m.) Trained dancer Deanna Kraszewski and her husband Jered team up for this pairs stretching class that works on lengthening and stretching the body’s muscles.  By using a partner, you’ll see increased range of motion, lower back pain relief – and you’ll feel the stress melt away… 8:30 a.m. Saturday: Spinstrong with Sherry DeKoster, director and educator of the Spinstrong indoor cycling program 9 a.m. Saturday: Body Mind Soul (Mon, Fri, 8:30 a.m.) Jered Kraszewski and Josh Quesada team up to offer a 30-minute core intensive workout followed by 15 minutes of Thai flow stretching and ending with a 10-minute meditation to live music.  This class will have you in like a lion and out like a lamb! 10 a.m. Saturday: Teen Time (Fridays, 4 p.m.) Paul Kraszewski leads this program focusing on the necessary speed, endurance, and power necessary for teen athletes to compete at the high school and collegiate levels.  Bodyweight training helps the teens build strength without worrying about heavy weights that can stunt growth plates and potentially cause injuries.  An assessment is available for parents that helps determine which sports the teen is most likely to excel at based on a 21- point review. 10 a.m. Saturday: Total Body Pilates (Weds. 8:30 a.m., additional classes pending): Pilates trainer Debbie Amrhein offers a Pilates-based class that includes total body strengthening and toning techniques as well.  Bands, free weights, and the most current Pilates techniques combine for one great workout. 11 a.m. Saturday: Core Attack (Tues, Thurs, 4 p.m.) In a total body core workout led by Jered Kraszewski, you’ll be in and out of the fitness center in 30 minutes with a stronger core of abdominal and lower back muscles – and a better outlook on life.

Beaufort’s U10 semi final game was against Sumter.  The field was in very good shape considering the rain and the game was shortened from the regulation 4 ten minute quarters to 2 fifteen minute halves.  We won 3-0.  Goals were scored by Matthew Campbell, Jack Gambla, and John Bell.  Beaufort’s defense was very strong and prevented any shots on goal. The final game was against Lancaster in the afternoon.  The weather was greatly improved (no rain, sun shining, but still cold) which allowed us to play the regulation 4 ten minute quarters.  The field had several large puddles on one end near both sidelines. When the ball hit those puddles it would just stop.  We were attacking that end of the field during the first half of the game, and the standing water caused us severe problems moving the ball to the goal. In the second half we were able to attack the favored end of the field without the puddle impediments and score.  We won 2-0.  Goals were scored by Reese Bowles and Matthew Campbell.  The defense played strong again shutting down Lancaster’s offense.
