Newton Farms Coming to Island Center
N E W G R O C E R Y S T O R E C O MI N G T O R E P L A C E R E D & WH I T E
BY HANNAH DOCKERY
C
hanges are coming to the
Isle of Palms. On January
2, Pastime Amusement
Company announced that
Newton Farms, a subsidiary
brand of Piggly Wiggly, would
open a new location in the
Island Center where the Red &
White stood for over 50 years.
Leonard D. Way, Vice President
of Pastime, hopes that the
new grocer will exceed the
expectations of island residents
as well as visitors. “I really think
Newton Farms is going to bring
the area an amazing shopping
experience for the Isle of Palms,
Sullivan’s Island, and all the
local residents throughout the
year. It will help foster a good
base for each other,” Way said.
Though it’s hard to replace
the iconic Red & White, Newton
Farms will meet the need for an
island grocery store. Offering a
gourmet shopping experience
that combines healthy and
original items with necessary
staples, the new store will feature
fresh, local produce, full-service
meat and seafood counters,
a bakery selling made-from-
scratch breads, a foral station,
and an eat-in deli with Southern
dishes and made-to-order
sandwiches. “We were conscious
of the fact that not three minutes
away, you have Piggly Wiggly,
Bi-Lo, and Harris Teeter,” Way
said. “Newton Farms will bring
something different. Something
to ft into the niche of the Isle of
Palms.”
The frst Newton Farms
opened in Freshfelds Village,
at the intersection of Kiawah
and Seabrook Islands. “That
location has proven to be quite
successful,” Way commented.
The announcing of Newton
Farms coming to the Isle of
Palms is just a piece of the
much larger puzzle as the Island
Center redevelops. Three of
the center’s existing tenants
will be relocated to a new,
four-bay retail building that is
currently under construction
and expected to be completed in
March of this year. The existing
buildings and parking lot will
receive an upgraded makeover.
Construction of Newton Farms
will also begin this year, with
an anticipated opening date of
summer 2014. “It will bring a
new vibrancy to the shopping
center and to the area, hopefully
bringing back retailers,” Way
said. “Overall, it’s about a great
quality experience. And that’s
what you’re going to get.”
Though after all is said and
done, the entrance to the Isle of
Palms will certainly look a little
different, Way assured that the
character of the Isle of Palms
would be preserved.

I
n 2012 the Community of Dewees celebrated our 20 Years. With
the dawn of 2013 propelling us forward into another decade, I
spent New Year’s Day reminiscing through dusty memorabilia.
Holding memories, some personal to me, others capturing an earlier
era, I chanced upon an early writing that has become something of a
mantra for those of us who found Dewees, loved her and took her as
our own.
From a Hugo ravaged maritime forest along a small barrier island,
we have evolved into a thriving community: Treading softly, living
fully, embracing the future.

Beauty is a commonplace sight in the
Lowcountry of South Carolina; but like a diamond,
it is measured by its intensity, clarity and brilliance…
Such is the nature of Dewes Island,
A priceless gem inviting you inside her soul…
Not to be dominated, but to be coexisted with
and marveled by.
Perhaps the thing I love the most about
The Island is my relationship with her…
Trusting and defenseless,
She offers to me her deepest secrets.
I, in return, can offer her little,
Save for the promise that I view her welfare
as my individual responsibility, and that
I will educate those who walk her shores to
the essentiality that they tread softly.
But to the Island that promise is enough.

t’s a new year, which means a time of change. A time to reinvent
yourself; a time to improve. It’s impossible to not think about
things in a larger perspective this time of year. No matter how
successful, happy, or satisfed we are with life we are forced by
society to think about what else we could be doing. I’ve succumbed
to this thought process and it got me thinking about this column.
How could it be better? What should I change? So I’ve decided to
ask you.
What is it in 2013 that you want to learn? How to cut basil into
chiffonade ribbons? Or how to make a sweet or savory souffé?
Lets make this year about learning and growing in our culinary
experiences. I’ll pick through suggestions and make what you are
asking for. Whether its something I’ve made before or whether I
have to learn as I go.
While you sit and ponder about what to suggest, nibble on
this simple toast recipe. I modeled this after watching the movie
Kate and Leopold—he makes a version of this toast for her. While
you’re munching and sipping, I’ll be waiting. Send suggestions
and comments to lowcountrybites@gmail.com.

going to Stagecoach to shop for
clothing, and it’s incredible to now
see our products on the shelves
in such a well-respected retailer.
We look forward to continuing
our partnership with them.”
Customers can purchase
Loggerhead Apparel by visiting

T
he Crepe (or Crape) Myrtle (Lagerstroemia
indica), originating from China and
Korea, was introduced circa 1790 to
Charleston, South Carolina and is one of the
most planted decorative trees in the United
States. Also known as ‘Southern Lilac’, this
fast-growing, deciduous tree does best in
warm summer areas and their long bloom
season is one reason for their attraction. The
fower colors include pink, red, purple, and
white, depending on the variety. Most grow
15 to 25 feet tall and wide, with some shorter
varieties growing only 3 to 5 feet tall. Dwarf
varieties can be grown in containers.
The foliage is attractive in the fall and
the textured bark provides winter interest.
Once the fowers die back, the seed will grow
readily the next year. Crepe Myrtles, with full
sun and well-drained soil, make a beautiful,
low maintenance addition for any garden.
Even so, many people like to prune Crepe
Myrtle trees in order to neaten the look of
the tree or to encourage new growth. If you
are looking to perform general maintenance
on your tree, the ideal Crepe Myrtle pruning
time is late winter when the tree is in its
dormancy and the leafessness permits an
easy view to all of the branches. It also blooms
on new growth, so pruning now won’t reduce
blooming; it should actually increase it.
Here are a few things you want to know,
should you wish to prune your Crepe Myrtle:
To begin, select the tools you’ll want to
have; for a smaller Crepe Myrtle: 3/4" to 1"
Bypass Pruners, for a larger Crepe Myrtle:
1-1/2" Lopper Pruners, pole pruners, or
a pruning saw to cut branches more than
1-1/2 inches thick and gardening gloves are
recommended.
Make note that the most daunting and
incorrectly practiced aspect of crepe myrtle
care is pruning. Pruning is often done too
heavily and gives meaning to the term "Crepe
Murder.”
Start by tracing down from the top of the
stem (from the seedpods), to where that stem
meets a branch. Make a cut about 6 to 12
inches or so above the intersection - never
below the intersection. Bend over the tip,
making your cut right at the point where the
stem starts to bend. Repeat until all stems
have been cut. Two new stems will emerge
from beneath your cuts. By using this method
of pruning you will be promoting twice as
many branches every season, which means
a fuller canopy and twice as many blooms.
To continue "cleaning up" your Crepe Myrtle
tree, prune suckers that grew from the trunk
base, and twiggy growth that emerged up
and along the main trunks.
Wrong-season pruning would mean
November and December. If you trim the
Crepe Myrtle in the last two months of the
year, and then we get a warming trend in
January or February, the trees might start
putting on new growth that will be highly
susceptible to freezing weather should
it come on the heals of a warm spell. New
growth will also tend to draw the cold right
into the plant, causing needless damage to a
tree that should be resting in dormancy.
When it comes to pruning Crepe Myrtles, it
would be better to leave them alone than to
prune them improperly. We've all seen over-
pruning. People chop back Crepe Myrtles
below the knuckles each and every year.
Many people who butcher Crepe Myrtles
when pruning say it’s because their plants
get too big. All that this means is that they
chose the wrong plant for the wrong spot.
So go ahead, follow the guidelines above
and trim your Crepe Myrtle now. As for those
notable blooms . . . well, you may not see
them now, but we all know that ‘Good Things
Come to Those Who Wait!’
If you don’t have a Crepe Myrtle yet and
you would like to plant one, call PLEASANT
LANDSCAPES for advise on the variety and
characteristics best suited for your landscape.

New Year,
New Companion
TIPS ON TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW PUPPY
BY DR. SHANNON BARRETT
A
new dog comes with a lot
of joy and often, a lot of
questions.
Whenever adopting a new
pooch, there are three major
topics you should discuss
with your veterinarian: diet,
preventative care, and training.
If you have brought a new
puppy into the house, it is very
important that you have him
checked out by your veterinarian
and discuss a vaccine schedule.
Puppies should have their frst
set of vaccines at 6-8 weeks of age
and then receive vaccines every
3-4 weeks until they are at least
16 weeks old. Until they receive
their fnal vaccine series, which
includes rabies, they are not
fully vaccinated and should not
be taken to public places. Prior
to the fnal vaccine series, they
are still at risk for many diseases
including parvovirus, which can
be very diffcult and costly to
treat. Once they receive their fnal
vaccines however, they can be
socialized and visit restaurants,
parks, and the beach.
Socialization and training are
very important for all new dogs,
whether a puppy or fully-grown
dog. Training classes at PetCo or
PetSmart allow for group training
whereas some local trainers
offer one-on-one training. The
most important part of training
is using the techniques learned
during class on a daily basis and
getting your pooch out in public.
Public socialization is crucial so
they can learn to obey commands
amid distractions and be exposed
to new sights or sounds. The
lowcountry has lots of dog friendly
restaurants and events for you
and your new friend. Keeping
your dog active will also keep
them from becoming overweight,
which can extend their life spans.
Nutrition is one of the most
important aspects of your dogs
care. Feeding your dog a high
quality diet is vital to their good
health. Some of my favorite brands
are Royal Canin, Wellness, Blue
Buffalo, and Science Diet. Avoid
feeding table scraps, especially
if they are high in fat. If you like
giving “people” food as a treat,
there are some acceptable items
such as raw baby
carrots, raw green
beans, and cheerios
(avoid the honey nut
type). Establishing
good eating habits as
soon as you bring your
dog home will help
keep them healthy,
and prevent unwanted
begging.
Along with proper
nutrition, your veterinarian will
also discuss heartworm and fea
prevention. There are several
products available. My favorite
is Trifexis, which is monthly pill
that prevents heartworms, feas,
and some intestinal parasites.
New puppies can be started as
early as eight weeks of age as
long as they are an appropriate
weight. Adult dogs should be
tested for heartworms prior to
starting preventative. Dogs in
the lowcountry need this pill
every month, even in the winter
months! It is also very important
to have your new dog or puppy
screened for intestinal parasites.
Many of these parasites can be
spread to humans and have the
potential to cause severe disease
such as seizures or blindness.
All new dogs should have an
intestinal parasite screening at
their initial visit and then every
year thereafter.
One of the most important
things you can buy for your pooch
is pet insurance. This should
be one of your frst purchases.
I have pet insurance on my dog
and it has already paid off. I like
VPI but there are also many other
good insurance options. Make
sure your insurance covers breed
related diseases. For instance,
certain diseases that are common
in German Shepherds would not
have been covered if I did not
have an insurance company that
covered breed specifc diseases.
The cost to insure my 4-year-old
dog is about $200 a year. He just
tore the ACL ligament in his knee
and required surgery. I took him to
the specialty hospital for surgery
and the cost was around $3,000.
VPI reimbursed me $2,600. I was
very glad I had insurance! The
only caveat is that new policies do
not cover pre-existing conditions;
therefore, it is important to get
a policy as soon as you adopt a
new dog, before any injuries or
illnesses occur.
Whether you have added a
puppy or adult dog to your family,
you have many years of laughter
and sloppy kisses ahead of you.
Make sure you start off on the
right paw with good training and
preventative care. Remember,
“Dogs are not our whole life, but
they make our lives whole.”

Investment Mistakes to Watch For
at Different Stages of Life
BY DIMI MATOUCHEV
A
s an investor, how can you avoid making mistakes? It’s not
always easy, because investing can be full of potential pitfalls.
But if you know what the most common mistakes are at different
stages of an investor’s life, you may have a better chance of avoiding
these costly errors.
Let’s take a look at some investment mistakes you’ll want to avoid
when you’re young, when you’re in mid-career, when you’re nearing
retirement and when you’ve just retired.
When you’re young …
Mistake: Investing too conservatively (or not at all) — If you’re just
entering the working world, you may not have a lot of money with
which to invest. But don’t wait until your income grows. Putting
away even a small amount each month can prove quite helpful.
Additionally, don’t make the mistake of investing primarily in short-
term vehicles that may preserve your principal but offer little in the
way of growth potential. Instead, position your portfolio for growth.
Of course, stock prices will always fuctuate, but you potentially
have decades to overcome these short-term declines. Since this
money is for retirement, your focus should be on the long term,
and it’s impossible to reach long-term goals with short-term, highly
conservative investments.
When you’re in mid-career …
Mistake: Putting insuffcient funds into your retirement accounts
— At this stage of your life, your earning power may well have
increased substantially. As a result, you should have more money
available to invest for the future. Specifcally, you may now be able
to “max out” on your IRA and still boost your contributions to your
employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as your 401(k), 403(b) or
457(b). These retirement accounts offer tax advantages that you may
not receive in ordinary savings and investment accounts. Try to put
more money into these retirement accounts every time your salary
goes up.
When you’re nearing retirement …
Mistake: Not having balance in your investment portfolio — When
they’re within just a few years of retirement, some people may go to
extremes, either investing too aggressively to try to make up for lost
time or too conservatively in an attempt to avoid potential declines.
Both these strategies could be risky. So as you near retirement,
seek to balance your portfolio. This could mean shifting some of
your investment dollars into fxed-income vehicles to provide for
your current income needs while still owning stocks that provide the
growth potential to help keep up with infation in your retirement
years.
When you’ve just retired …
Mistake: Failing to determine an appropriate withdrawal rate
— Upon reaching retirement, you will need to carefully manage
the money you’ve accumulated in your IRA, 401(k) and all other
investment accounts. Obviously, your chief concern is outliving your
money, so you’ll need to determine how much you can withdraw
each year. To arrive at this fgure, take into account your current
age, your projected longevity, the amount of money you’ve saved and
the estimated rate of return you’re getting from your investments.
This type of calculation is complex, so you may want to consult with
a fnancial professional.
By avoiding these errors, you can help ensure that, at each stage of
your life, you’re doing what you can to keep making progress toward
your fnancial goals.

COMPUTER CORNER
I
have received numerous
complaints about the new
Windows 8 operating software
and again will caution you about
it. Recently a client received a
notice on the computer stating they
could "upgrade" to Windows 8 for a
very low fee and decided to accept.
The person was basically in tears
about the changes, how Microsoft
Works was no longer available,
some documents (possibly all) were
missing and nothing worked the way
it did before.
Be very wary of the Windows
8 upgrade, make sure you know
what you are doing, or contact a
professional for advice. To reverse
this process is not easy, if you do
not back up all data (pictures/
documents/music/etc) it may be
lost and all added software such
as Offce or some other program
could be deleted and need to be re-
installed. You are starting like a new
computer.
A well-respected radio computer
host has stated that an upgrade
to Windows 8 can be a daunting
experience for the novice. I
completely agree and have had
several clients that wanted 8 removed
and 7 installed. If considering a new
computer this year, a look online for
a Windows 7 laptop or desktop could
be a good bet, especially for "baby
boom" generation.
A couple of other things to be on
the lookout for are those phone calls
or emails you receive informing you
of the "thousands" of viruses that
have infected you computer. They
are scams that prey on your fears.
If you have a good virus protection,
either paid or free, that you keep up-
to-date will help with most. If you
are not sure DO NOT BUY it and call
your computer professional or me
for advice. As always I am happy to
answer your emails or calls about
questions or you can write this
paper.
Happy New Year to all and best
wishes on your computing world.
Look forward to some good
questions and helping you out. If you
need immediate assistance you can
always call Rent A Bob at 822-7794
or email at rentabob@live.com.
