Colors run the show
he Wells Gallery at Te Sanctuary
Resort is featuring new works
by artist Junko Ono Rothwell
in August and September.  Rothwell
received her art degree from Okayama
University in Japan; soon after she came
to the United States to attend art classes at
Cornell University.  Rothwell, originally
a pastel artist, is a native of Japan, and
now lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia.
Rothwell routinely vacations on Kiawah
and Folly Beach, and her most recent
trip to the Lowcountry has provided the
muse for her showing at the Wells Gallery. 
Tese landscape paintings still refect the
artist’s cultural heritage most notably
in her use of space and shape – which
echoes Eastern art, yet her color palette is
strongly infuenced by her American art
experience.  She uses bold bright colors in
contrast to the more delicate tones often
associated with Asian art.  She is a master
at capturing changing color and light as
she paints en plein air.
“When I was an art student in Japan,
I used darker colors. But after I moved to
the U.S., I often went to museums where
I learned to use brighter colors,”Rothwell
said. Rothwell uses color to bring out
the mood, movement, and energy of her
works. Rothwell said, “I do not block each
color, but try to fow colors over the entire
paper to create the feeling of movement. 
Color brings each painting to life. I am
always impressed at how the sun lights
up the marsh and changes its colors and
moods at diferent times of day and during
diferent seasons of the year.  Weather
patterns also dramatically change the look
of a marsh.  In summer, I always love to
paint big white clouds foating over the
distant marsh.  And in November, the
marsh glows with a lovely yellow-orange
cast.”  It is for a marsh scene that Rothwell
is best known on Kiawah – a large colorful
marsh owned by the Sanctuary Resort
brightens their east wing and draws in
locals and visitors alike.  
Rothwell’s work has appeared in Best
of Pastel (Rockport Publishers, 1996),
Portrait Inspirations (Rockport Publishers,
1997), Te Best of Sketching and Drawing
(Quarry Books, 1999) and Pure Color
(Northlight Books, 2006).  She was one of
four artists featured in the “Unforgettable
Landscapes: Diferent Approaches to
Light and Texture” article in Te Pastel
Journal (May/June, 2000).  Rothwell also
illustrated a children’s book in Japanese:

or over 25 years, the Seabrook Island
community, with the support of fans
and businesses in the Low Country,
has held one of the most popular tennis
tournaments in all the South. It attracts
over 250 players in age groups starting at
35 years-old and older. (Yes, there is an
over-80s category.) Te tournament has
brought in some of the highest ranked
amateurs in the United States including
Charleston’s own Diane Fishburne,
Susie Peifer and Brenda Carter. Other
locals have had a good deal of success.
Recreational players like Margo Heyd and
Hutchie Cummin have been fnalists in
women’s 70 doubles, while Joan Johnson
and Linda Saver won the women’s 65s.
Linda Lefer and Abbie Dickenson met
two of the South’s top-ranked players,
Betsy McCall and Brenda Carter, in the
women’s 60s championship. Maureen
O’Berg has collected a number singles
titles, as has Ron Grof. Andrea and
Harvey Hines have had wins in both
mixed doubles and singles competition.
And the list goes on. Low country players
are welcome to enter!
Known locally as “Te Fleming,” the
event is named after the late Alan Fleming,
a long-time resident and tennis player, and
father of Peter Fleming who won doubles
championships at Wimbledon and the
US Open. Tis year’s event runs October
6-9, beginning early in the morning and
throughout most of the day. Spectators
are welcome – no ticket required.
Tennis is fun; supporting one of
Charleston’s most deserving charities
is even better. For over 20 years, “Te
Fleming” has raised money for the
Hospice of Charleston Foundation.
Last year $37,500 went to support the
invaluable work of those “angels” who
provide compassionate end-of-life care to
families throughout the Low Country.
So folks here in the Charleston area
have a chance to enjoy the South Carolina
sunshine (bring a parasol) while watching
frst-rate tennis from among over 400
diferent matches, and enjoy the gentle
and lovely atmosphere on Seabrook Island
– all while munching a lunch you can
purchase at the newly renovated Tennis
Center, located just inside the Seabrook
gate. Just tell the gate personnel you’re
there to play or to watch the tennis. It’s
free park and there is no admission fee to
watch the matches.
Te deadline for entering the
tournament is Tursday, Sept. 29th.

Mystery Plant
he cacti are plants that demand
attention, for several obvious
reasons. Tey are fascinating
succulents with spectacular fowers, and
they characterize special habitats, dry ones
(and not just deserts). Tey are commonly
equipped with formidable hardware, in
the form of spines, which, depending on
the species, can be dangerous. Tere are
nearly 2,000 diferent species of cacti, and
they truly form an “all-American” plant
family, occurring naturally only in North
and South America. (Actually, there is one
true cactus species that is apparently native
to Africa. But that’s one out of 2,000.)
Te spines of cacti are modifed
leaves, which provide protection. Many
cacti (certainly not all) have their stems
fattened into characteristic “pads,” with
the spines projecting from the individual
nodes. Of course, spininess in cacti varies
among species, and even as an efect of
age, with older pads often eventually
losing their spines. In addition to spines,
some cacti, including this week’s Mystery
Plant, and its relatives, come equipped
with clusters of tiny, barbed bristles, called
glochids. Glochids are often gold and
shiny, but barely visible, on the surface of
the pads. When these get into your skin,
they will be there for a while, often causing
serious irritation. With many cacti, it’s the
glochids which are the problem, more
so than the spines, and if you intend to
handle cacti for whatever reason, you
should use gloves.
Our Mystery Plant is one of the “prickly
pears” native to the southeastern USA,
Bermuda, and the Atlantic coast of South
America. Magnifcent yellow fowers are
followed by soft, red, seed-flled fruits,
which technically are berries. Te plants
like to be near the coast, and commonly
behind beach dunes. It is often found
as a resident of shell rings or middens
constructed by early native people. Sure
enough, there is considerable evidence of
the importance of this plant in the diet of
Native Americans. Te pads themselves,
as well as the berries (historically referred
to as “tunas”) were eaten raw or cooked,
and were sometimes dried for later use. Of
the several native species of Southeastern
prickly pears, this one is the largest,
sometimes becoming a shrub.
Cacti are notorious for having spread
themselves around the world, of course,
with the intentional (or sometimes
accidental) help of humans. Our Mystery
Plant was introduced into Australia in the
early 1800’s, with the idea that it would
make a good source of fodder for cattle
(and it was grown as a kind of “living
fence.”) Te plants did so well that they
took over the landscape as one of the
world’s worst weeds. Ultimately, the cactus
was brought under control by introducing
a special cactus-eating moth. Ironically,
our native Southeastern populations of
this cactus are now under serious threat
by the same moth.

ust when you thought you could take a break from fnancial drama, following
the resolution of the debt ceiling issue, here comes Act 2: the downgrade of the
U.S. long-term credit rating. As a citizen, you may be feeling frustrated. And as an
investor, you might be getting worried. But is this concern really justifed?
Certainly, it was news when Standard and Poors (S & P) lowered the U.S. long-term
credit rating from AAA to AA+. Tis was, after all, the frst time that the U.S. has
lost its AAA status since its initial publication 70 years ago. Furthermore, S & P put a
negative outlook on the rating, which means that further downgrades are possible. But
despite these developments, there’s no reason to think that the sky is falling in on the
investment world. Consider the following:
• “Downgrade” doesn’t mean default. Rating agencies such as S & P assign ratings to
bonds to help investors measure credit risk — the chance that they won’t receive timely
payments. Te downgrade to AA+ just means that investors would be slightly less likely
to receive future payments than if the bond had an AAA rating. Tis is far diferent
from a default, which would result in investors not receiving current payments.
•  U.S. credit rating is still high quality. S & P didn’t change the U.S. government’s
short-term credit rating, which applies to debt maturing in less than one year.
Furthermore, even the long-term rating of AA+ is still considered high quality. Also,
keep in mind that two other major rating agencies, Moody’s and Fitch, both afrmed
their AAA rating on the U.S., although Moody’s has a negative outlook on its rating.
  • Downgrade was not a surprise. Because the downgrade had been rumored for
weeks, the fnancial markets may have already “priced in” some of the impact. While it’s
possible that interest rates may rise, it’s also important to note that similar downgrades
of other countries’ debt in the past have not resulted in signifcant rate jumps. As for the
stock market — which was already volatile, partially due to the debt ceiling issue — the
negative reaction we've seen to the downgrade will likely be short-term.
Tis downgrade should not o be as calamitous as we’ve been led to believe. Corporate
profts, always a key driver of stock prices, are still strong, and with the market correction
we’ve seen in the past couple of weeks, many quality stocks now appear to be   more
attractively priced — which means it may actually be a good time to look for investment
opportunities that make sense for you,  rather than heading to the “sidelines.”
In any case, you never want to overreact to any one piece of news. If you were to
make big changes to your investment strategy, you’d likely incur fees and expenses —
and, even more importantly, your portfolio might no longer be positioned to meet your
long-term goals. You’re much better of by sticking with a strategy that’s based on your
individual needs, risk tolerance and time horizon. Tis can be challenging, especially
in light of the screaming headlines. But remember, although past performance isn't
indicative of future results,  the U.S. fnancial markets have seen plenty of traumas in
the past, and have survived — and usually, eventually prospered.

Don’t Let Downgrade Deter You From Investing
8 August 19, 2011
f one of your loved ones was doubled
over with chest pain, having what
appeared to be a heart attack, or
witnessed someone sustain severe injuries,
you would probably call 911 so they could
receive medical attention as quickly as
possible. What if you observed someone
suddenly lose the ability to speak, move
parts of his or her body or have trouble
seeing? Would you react the same
way? Te answer is probably yes, if you
recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Knowing what symptoms to look for
and reacting quickly may save a stroke
victim’s life and may increase their
chances for a successful recovery. Every
minute counts when someone is having
a stroke, yet the average stroke patient
waits more than 12 hours before going to
an emergency room and many wait much
longer, sometimes an entire day.
Strokes occur when blood fow to
the brain is interrupted. When a person
begins sufering a stroke, brain cells in the
immediate area begin to die because they
stop receiving the oxygen and nutrients
they need to function. Tis is why
immediate medical attention is necessary.
“Stroke patients who receive treatment
within the frst hour of onset have the
best chance of survival and prevention
of disability,” said Dr. Taylor Sanders,
an emergency medicine physician at East
Cooper Medical Center. “Te window of
opportunity to treat the majority of stroke
patients is between three and four hours.
After six hours, studies show that there
may be little to no beneft.”
If you have any of these symptoms, call
911 immediately:
• Sudden numbness or weakness of
the face, arm or leg.
• Sudden confusion, trouble
speaking or understanding.
• Sudden trouble walking, dizziness
or loss of balance or coordination.
• Sudden trouble seeing in one or
both eyes.
• Sudden, severe headache with no
known reason.
Remember, not every stroke suferer
will have all of these signs and sometimes
the symptoms will go away only to return
again. Call 911 right away if you or any
one you know have one or more of these
symptoms. Te sooner medical treatment
is given, the better the chances for survival
and healing.
Seeking Indigo, located on Upper
King Street in Charleston, SC is a center
for physical and spiritual awakening that
ofers reprise from whatever burdens we
may carry or pains that may trouble us.
From the outside, Seeking Indigo
presents itself as a beautifully appointed
retail space with an array of hand selected
handcrafted treasures from Indonesia
and India as well as many unique locally
made products. Much of what they sell
has a deeper message, a hidden purpose,
or an interesting story of how it arrived
at Seeking Indigo. From Himalayan rock
salt lamps to the root structure of a teak
tree that was unearthed and hand carved
into a Medusa. Each item invites the
shopper to experience a journey with a
soulful story that reaches the far corners
of the globe., there is much to explore and
learn at Seeking Indigo.
Te front of the house, known as the
Center for Artful Living also sports a
wellness bar, where the compassionate
and well-trained staf ofers consultations,
intended to guide clients towards the right
service to meet their needs. Opposite the
wellness bar is the aromatherapy bar,
where Master Aromatherapist, Heather
Howell, works with clients in the creation
of a tailor made scents. One of Heather’s
special talents is the ability to re-create
the scent of other perfumes using 100%
natural essential oils. On Tursdays,
Seeking Indigo also ofers tarot readings
by Franklyn, whose intuitive gifts have
aided many in their “seeking” process.
At the back of the 6,000 square foot
facility, rests the hidden world spa and
wellness center ofering a protective and
dreamlike environment for healing of the
mind, body, and spirit. “Whether one
is looking for improved health, how to
live life with more passion and vitality, or
to address a specifc challenge they may
be having, Seeking Indigo has created
a unique experience for our clients to
relax and for true healing to occur,” says
visionary and manager Kathryn Peters.
To be led into the back room is to be taken
to a diferent world. Your guide, who will
lead you through the wellness center, will
encourage respectful silence and ask for
the removal of shoes. Tis ritual helps
prepare guests to enter the sanctuary.
When the carved Indonesian
Greybog doors glide open and you enter
the sanctuary, you will stand before
an impressive statue of the Buddha
surrounded by tall pillar candles. Te
room is dimly lit and faintly perfumed
with the oferings that are left on the
altars and the faint aroma of ginger and
citrus. Meditation music flls the space.
Passing through the sanctuary, you
enter a surprising large high-ceilinged
space, which possesses the ambiance of a
temple. “We put a great deal of intention
into every detail when creating the space
borrowing inspiration from many sacred
structures from afar,” says Peters. Tis
area contains two treatment rooms topped
with magnifcent tented ceilings, where
customers can enjoy the ministrations of
the experienced staf. From conventional
massage to Reiki therapy, Seeking Indigo
ofers an array of services for to suit a
variety of needs and comfort levels.
Seeking Indigo ofers over 60
treatments including a hyperbaric oxygen
chamber, Acupucture, Reiki, Qi Gong
massage, Ayurveda, Yoga, and a multitude
of other modalities to assist in eliminating
stress in ones daily life.
Te best way to experience a glimpse
into this Zen paradise is to attend one of
their Tursday night Wellness samplers.
Limited to only 20 guests, each client is
given a preselected agenda where they can
explore mini treatments while enjoying
organic food and home made kombucha
(a fermented tea for health and vitality).
As the samplers take place only once a
month – the third Tursday evening,
you’ll want to book far in advance as each
one is sold out.
Katherine Peters, managing director
and visionary of the project, along with
Blake Kingsbury, who is the owner
and focuses on the philosophy of
the company, opened Seeking Indigo in
2010. “We had no idea if Charleston was
ready, but we were willing to give it a try”
says Peters.
Now Peters and Kingsbury are working
on a third component to compliment
their downtown retail and wellness center.
Retreat centers, which will be on an island
just of the coast of Charleston and on a
farm in North Carolina, are intended to
be a weekend retreat for clients seeking a
total transformation. Tey hope to have
the center for “integral living” open in
“Tis is only the beginning, a new
paradigm that will evolve in many
directions over the next few years. Seeking
Indigo ofers an environment ready for
anyone to explore alternative approaches
to mind-body-spirit health and wellness,”
says Peters, “By bettering ourselves and
living life authentically, awake, aware and
alert, we seek to be change agents in  a
world ready for true evolution.”

August 19, 2011
n Wednesday, September 14th, the exclusive Briar’s Creek course on Johns
Island will serve as the site for the 16th annual Sea Island Habitat for Humanity
Golf Beneft. Te golf beneft has been one of the most important fundraising
events for the afliate, and this year’s goal will to be fund an entire house for an area
family in need—a $60,000 goal!
“Tere is such a great need for afordable housing in our area,” says Molly Cofey,
Advancement & Communications Manager for SIHH. “It is through events such as
the golf beneft that we are able to help raise the much needed funds for our projects and
help more local families in need.”
All proceeds from this year’s event will go towards building a safe, afordable and
energy-efcient home for a local family. Since 2008, Sea Island Habitat has been
building all homes to meet Energy Star and EarthCraft certifcation levels and has built
291 homes in the area since its start in 1978.
“As an afordable housing provider, we want to ensure that our houses are not
only priced reasonably, but are socially and environmentally responsible,” said Steve
Yeomans, Construction Manager for SIHH. “By making our homes sustainable, we are
not only helping to reduce our ecological footprint, but we are making the maintenance
of our homes more afordable for our homeowners in the long run.”
In addition to the day’s round at Briar’s, the popular and fun event will also feature
a hole-in-one challenge, putting contest, Beat the Pro hole, and other contests thought
the day. Each player will receive a convertible Vantage wind shirt along with a boxed
lunch from Newton Farms and a dinner reception after the day’s round as part of their
entry fee.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available and individual non-sponsor tickets are $375
per person. Tis event has sold out EVERY year so make sure you register early and help
Sea Island Habitat build a house with a golf club. For more information on the event or
to register, please contact Molly Cofey at 843-768-0998 or via email at advancement@
Habitat for Humanity
ccording to Safe Kids, USA, motor vehicle crashes is
the leading cause of death to children between the
ages of 3 – 14. Astonishingly, for every fatality, 18
children require hospitalization and more than 400 receive
some type of medical treatment.
Whether it is a child seat, a booster seat, or the use of
seat belts, all 50 states have some type of motor vehicle
child restraint law. It does not matter how good the restraint
system is or the laws, the restraint system must be used properly
to be efective. Properly installed/used child restraint systems
reduce fatal injures by 72% for infants, 54% for toddlers, and
older children are 28% less likely to receive a fatal injury while using a proper restraint
system than using seat belts alone. It has been estimated that 73% of the child restraint
systems installed have at least one critical installation component installed improperly,
such as a loose safety belt, or loose harness straps (baby seats). Te rear seat of the
vehicle is the best location for any child safety seat.
Te St. Johns Fire District, along with other area fre departments, and in conjunction
with Safe Kids Trident Area is hosting a Seat Technician Certifcation course in August
and September. Tis certifcation course is only available to the area fre service
personnel, but each course cumulates with a safety seat check station that is open to the
public. Personnel certifed in the course will be available to install a new child safety
restraint device and inspect one that has been previously installed. Te course will also
allow certifed technicians to conduct an installation or inspection at fre stations in the
surrounding areas.
Te frst safety seat inspection station will be held at St. Johns Fire Station 1 at 3327
Maybank Highway on August 25th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Te location of the
check station will be at Roper St. Francis Hospital in West Ashley on in September 10
from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Another artist featuring new works is Rick Reinert, a Charleston artist, is once again
partnering with the Wells Gallery at Te Sanctuary Resort, on a new show of works. 
Tis dual show featuring works by Reinert and Atlanta based artist Junko Ono Rothwell,
focuses on representations of the Lowcountry – one of Reinert’s favorite inspirations. 
Rick Reinert’s formal art training took place at Western Kentucky University in the
1970’s which gave way to independent study resulting in various one-man shows in the
1980’s including those in Germany and Toronto, Canada which featured his large, bold
expressionistic work. 
Rick renewed his commitment to painting a number of years ago and since, his
work has refected both his passion for expressing light and shadow in nature and
surroundings while striving for purity in color and brushstroke. Reinert has achieved
a unique and distinctive painting style because of constant self-teaching and study.
Recently, his painting “Ships of the Heartland” was a top 100 winner in the 2008
Paint American competition and he has been chosen as a featured artist in the Gadsden
Museum of Art Southeastern Plein Air Festival in Gadsden, Alabama. His work has
been included in “Oil Painters of America” 2008 National Exhibition, of which he
is also an associate member along with the American Impressionist Society.  Reinert
has been featured twice in “American Art collector Magazine” and the February 2009
edition of “Sunshine Artist” featured him as their cover story.  He has won “Best of
Show” and numerous place awards for his artwork which hangs in private and corporate
collections in the most U.S. States, Europe, Canada, South America and Asia.
“Nature and sunlight have provided me with the ultimate reference library. I believe
that it is possible to study painting for a lifetime and never have to venture more than
one square mile for constant challenges and a wealth of subject matter. Every day ofers
unique and exciting opportunities for the artist who follows the light,” says Reinert. 
Reinert’s work is bold and his contemporary impressionistic style has made for
interesting and unique images of Kiawah and the Lowcountry.
Admission to the art show is free. for more information call 576-1290. Te Opening
Show is August 19 from 5-8:00pm. Rothwell and Reinert will both be in attendance.

ou really should you know! When
you get that email that did not get
caught in the spam folder that say’s
you WON $20 million, you are the long
lost descendant of “pick a name”, etc. you
do NOT need to look further. Regardless
of the content it’s not true, no one is giving
you a million, billion or even $20,000,
PERIOD! It’s all fake, they know after 20
years all the buttons to push and will use
them. Really you should know better and
take it from Rent A Bob it’s all fake.
I say this because it seems the scams
seem to rise in volume in direct proportion
to everyone’s need for money. Remember
the old adage that if it sounds too good
to be true it is… even if it’s written. Te
scammers (spammers) have all kinds of
statements, all of which have gone around
at least a thousand times (or it seems) and
you would think everyone has seen them
all yet people still fall for them. Please
don’t let this happen to you. Emails are
a great tool, make you close to friends
and family, businesses, but with the good
comes the bad - spammers, viruses, bad
Another email that you should NEVER
respond to is anything from you bank,
401k, savings & loan, anything that asks
for you username, password or account
number. If a bank needs to speak with
you the email will never have you “click”
on something or ask for info they should
already have. A valid email might state
that you need to contact them at some
number, login to your account to review
something, etc. but not give information.
If you are ever in doubt look up the
number of your bank, etc. and call that
number. Inform them of what you have
received and ask if it is valid.
So remember that a “gift” of money is
always a fake and do not trust an email
from a business asking for info they already
have. I know I have had several columns
on emails but the dangers are real. So as
you have always heard “You should know
I look forward to any comments or
questions so please give me a call or email
anytime. I am happy to give advice or fx
