The People Who Staff Tidelines

Tidelines has decided to run feature articles on the people who staff Tidelines. Our readers may get to know the two staff writers for Tidelines, Barbara Burgess and Sally Kimball, as they are out in the community conducting interviews to write their stories or do their podcasts. However, it is the editors of Tidelines who work behind the scenes posting stories, correcting on line referrals, checking up on the facts of the story, that do all the hard work of bringing Tidelines to the readers. Therefore, we wanted to feature each one of them in a story that will tell you more about them and bring them from behind the camera to the forefront.

Our first such story is about Dennis Pescitelli, the founder and driving force behind Tidelines. His story appears below. Watch for this feature in the future and get to know the Tidelines staff.

Exchange Club Yellow Ribbon Story Worth Sharing

Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club member, Roger Steel, recently discovered an interesting story about a ribbon attached to one of our flags that had been on display for the Veteran’s Day memorial holiday. Roger spoke with David, who works at the cart barn at the Seabrook Island Club, while storing the flags after they had been taken down. David commented that he had taken a picture of a ribbon that had been attached to one of our flags and sent it out on his Facebook account. Subsequently, Lori Benjamin, who works in the office at the Club saw the photo of the ribbon on Facebook and immediately recognized the name on the ribbon as a friend of hers from when they were both young. Lori said that the parents of this fallen warrior had always been like “God parents” to her. This story of a special coincidence is a reminder of how closely we are all related in various ways and that we can never know how we may positively impact those around us.  Please read Laurie Benjamin’s email to Roger Steel below:
