#4 Hurricane Hint – Clean Out the Basement

You need to be prepared for flooding on the ground floor of your home.  Now is the time to clean the basement.  Discard the boxes that you’ve been piling up down there.  Move yard chemicals and fertilizers up onto a shelf.  Get rid of old cans of paint and chemicals (You can take them to Seabrook’s Recycling Center).  Get everything up off the floor so that it doesn’t become saturated or worse, requiring a toxic waste clean-up following a flood.

While you’re in the basement, make sure nothing is blocking your flood vents and that they work properly.

Remember, be prepared; stay safe.

Ron Ellis, Coach Grant & Pres. Blasch

Grant said he and his assistant coaches recruit players who are more than just talented athletes on the courts. Their team members must be community oriented, trustful and have the drive and desire to excel academically. Over the summer months, players are involved in community service projects and serve as interns in addition to their physical training routines.

Earl Grant has signed a 5-year contract with the College of Charleston through the 2022 season. He encouraged all exchange members to come down to the TD Arena on George Street this fall, support his basketball players and capture their winning spirit. Grant considers himself to be “The Luckiest Guy in the World” having grown up in North Charleston and having the privilege to coach in his hometown. Go Cougars!

MUSC Seabrook Talking Circles, June 29

Medical University of South Carolina Health officials want to hear about health issues from local residents through a series of Lowcountry forums scheduled to begin later this month.

The 90-minute forums, or talking circles, will include eight to 12 participants with the goal of helping MUSC Health representatives better meet community health concerns. These forums will provide a health consumer’s perspective and enable MUSC Health providers to improve programs based on the input they receive.

The initial talking circles will be formed with volunteers age 65 and older. Individuals of any background or health status are welcome to attend. Meetings are planned to be held several times each year.

“We have found that asking our consumers of health care what they need and how to remove barriers to health is a critical first step,” relates the talking circle coordinator Philip Smeltzer. The insights provided by talking circle participants typically yield discoveries that program leaders would have overlooked without the firsthand input of consumers, according to Smeltzer.

The first meeting will be held at Kiawah Island on June 28, 2017 at 2:00 pm in the Kiawah Council Chambers. On the following day, June 29, 2017 Seabrook residents will meet at 2:00 pm in the Osprey Room at the Lake House.

Volunteers may contact MUSC Health Population Health at (843)792-6637 or
