Facts at a Glance
Millions of Americans rely on expert chiropractors, like those at AlignLife, to help alleviate back pain and range of motion. Visiting a chiropractor in Cityname can do wonders for your pain, but it can also be incredibly effective for other maladies:
Chiropractic Care Helps Lower Blood Pressure: Clinical trials show that spinal alignment and manipulation can be as effective at lowering blood pressure as some blood pressure medications.
Chiropractic Care Reduces Inflammation: Studies show that regular care from a chiropractor reduces inflammation in your body. Inflammation can wreak havoc on your body and is linked to cancer and heart disease.
Chiropractic Care Improves Nervous System Disorders: By removing pressure on nerve fibers and increasing blood flow to the brain, chiropractic adjustments are shown to reduce the symptoms of neurological conditions like fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy.
Chiropractic Care Reduces Acute, Chronic Pain: Regular adjustments help alleviate back and neck pain, but they also help relieve pain associated with sciatica. This intense pain stems from a pinched nerve in the spine and can be a chronic condition without treatment.
Chiropractic care offers wide-ranging wellness benefits in addition to back pain relief. A few additional benefits include:
- Immune System Support
- Improved Athletic Performance
- Elimination of Vertigo or Dizziness
- Better Lung Function and Reduced Asthma Symptoms
- Better Balance
- More Flexibility
- Ease Pregnancy Discomfort
- Improved Sleep and Vitality

MetaLife vs. Other Weight Loss Systems
There are dozens if not hundreds of weight loss programs available today. Unfortunately, many of these systems create more problems than they do solutions. Often outdated and unhealthy, these programs should be avoided entirely if you're focusing on long-term weight loss and improved wellbeing.
Let's break down the many misconceptions associated with popular weight loss programs:
Low Calorie Diets
Reducing calories to very low levels causes your body to go into "starvation mode." It also lowers your metabolism, which limits your body's ability to burn fat. Low calorie weight loss systems often cause the much-dreaded rebound weight gain.
Low Protein Diets
There is no way of knowing if your body is burning fat or muscle on a low protein diet unless you monitor it. MetaLife is the only weight loss system that tests body composition on a weekly basis. This ensures you lose fat instead of muscle, and you keep it off for the long haul.
Low Fat Diets
Low fat diets usually equate to high sugar diets. Diets high in sugar cause weight gain instead weight loss, and increase your risk of diabetes, inflammation, and pain. Low fat diets also cause hormone imbalances which create fatigue, insomnia, mood disorders, and even a lack of sex drive.

Local high school duo angles for spot at the bass fishing national championship

ST. GEORGE — Jordan Werner and Cutler Labrum are going from Utah to South Carolina to catch some bass.
And chase some of their dreams along the way.
The duo will represent Red Rock Bass at the 2022 Abu Garcia Bassmaster High School National Championship at Lake Hartwell in Anderson, South Carolina Aug. 11-13.
“I’m pumped. It’s gonna be awesome,” Labrum said. “I’m nervous and excited all at the same time. I definitely think we can win if we put our heads in it and just grind out there.”
The occasion marks the first time since 2014 that Utah will send fishermen to compete in the high school national championship.
“It’s awesome to represent the place you’ve lived your whole life in a place you’ve never been to,” Werner said. “I’m looking forward to winning. Me and Cutler are about just as good as everybody else.”
The duo earned the qualification points necessary to go to South Carolina over the course of 10 bass fishing tournaments staged at Sand Hollow, Gunlock Reservoir and Quail Reservoir. They finished in the overall top two in every tournament.
“They really handled a lot of adversity,” Red Rocks Bass coach and boat captain Clif Gallagher said. “They did a really good job of learning how to fish together.”
Gallagher started the club four years ago when he encountered two kids fishing in a pond on a golf course and it inspired him.
“Fishing is universal,” he said. “Anyone at all can take a fishing pole to a river or a lake, throw in a line and make friends. Everyone fishes- men, women, children, handicapped, all ages, all kinds of people. It’s the universal language.”
Red Rock Bass is about more than just fishing.
“It’s good for the community, I really believe that,” Gallagher said. “It gives these kids something to do, gets them outside and off their phones. They learn about teamwork and it’s open to all levels and abilities.”
As captain of the boat (named “The Linda K” after his mother), Gallagher is tasked with driving the pair around Lake Hartwell as they seek the best holes. He can also offer advice on fishing techniques and patterns.
Up to 275 clubs and schools are expected to compete in the national championship. Gallagher said that most high schools in the South have their own sanctioned fishing teams like any other sport, but in other regions around the country, high-schoolers compete on club fishing teams.
“There will be colleges there; scholarships are available,” Gallagher said. “And there’s prizes to compete for as well.”
Werner attends Hurricane High School. A friend told his dad about Red Rock Bass and they went to check it out.
“And I got hooked, first meeting of the year,” Werner said. “I fished the first tournament and it has just gone from there.”
He added that he fishes tournaments with his dad as well and he hopes to fish professionally someday.
Labrum goes to Crimson Cliffs High School and had an early start in the water like his partner.
“I’ve grown up fishing with my dad. We’ve just always been around it,” Labrum said. “Mostly trout fishing when I was growing up but the past four or five years I’ve gotten into largemouth and bass fishing in general.”
He went on to say that he wants to turn pro someday as well, but he also has hopes that he can go to college and fish too.
In the meantime, the anglers will prepare to represent Utah at the national championship. Anyone interested in helping Labrum and Werner get to South Carolina can look up their GoFundMe project.

Avery Research Center Receives Rare Recording of MLK Speech in Charleston as Part of New Collection

Capping a week of Juneteenth celebrations across the United States, the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture is pleased to announce receipt of materials that will offer new insights into pivotal moments in the fight for civil rights in the South Carolina Lowcountry, including a rare recording of a speech made by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. during a visit to Charleston less than a year before his death.
The Eugene B. Sloan Civil Rights Collection constitutes an extraordinary archive of audiotapes, photographs, correspondence, ephemera and objects from award-winning South Carolina journalist and editor Eugene B. Sloan. Preserved by Sloan’s immediate family over more than five decades, highlights of the collection include three exceedingly rare and historically significant audio recordings:
Generously donated by Lisa Berman, review of the interviews and transcripts is currently underway. They will be accessible in the spring of 2023 to the CofC community and the public on Aviary, the audiovisual repository and platform for the Lowcountry Oral History Initiative. The collection also features artifacts and personal papers connected to Eugene Sloan and his family, including the Hasselblad camera he used to photograph King and other notable civil rights figures, as well as a personal recording Sloan made in the early morning hours after King’s death in 1968.
“The gift from Lisa Berman of the Eugene B. Sloan Civil Rights Collection is a perfect match to the mission and focus of the Avery Research Center,” says CofC President Andrew T. Hsu. “The Avery Research Center is a premier repository for Black history in the Lowcountry and having the 1967 recording of Martin Luther King Jr. in Charleston is an incredible addition to our world-class collections at the Avery Research Center.”
The Eugene B. Sloan Civil Rights Collection will also serve as a complementary element of Documenting the Arc, the Avery Research Center’s oral history project documenting the ongoing fight for equality in the Lowcountry. Supported by the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Documenting the Arc collects interviews focusing on the grassroots demonstrations and organizing efforts in late 2014 through the local George Floyd protests and civil unrest that marked the summer of 2020, emphasizing the period between the killing of Walter Scott and the massacre at Mother Emanuel AME Church.
“The artifacts from the Sloan collection also demonstrate how intricately connected the Charleston peninsula and the Sea Island communities (especially Johns and Wadmalaw islands) were to one another and to the ongoing work toward justice,” says Tamara T. Butler, executive director of the Avery Research Center and associate dean of strategic planning and community engagement. “We are honored to be the stewards of this collection as it is an important thread of the civil rights tapestry that we weave together at the Avery Research Center.”
The Avery Research Center publicly announced the donation on Saturday, June 25, 2022, during the annual meeting of the Avery Institute of Afro-American History and Culture, a separate nonprofit organization providing support to the Avery Research Center’s programs, operations and efforts to acquire archival collections. The meeting also inaugurated the Avery Institute’s Curatorial Committee, which will collaborate with Avery Research Center faculty and staff to design upcoming exhibits for the center’s historic building at 125 Bull St. in downtown Charleston.
“The Sloan collection would be a treasured and powerful addition to the holdings of even the largest academic library,” says John W. White, dean of libraries. “The conviction shared by Lisa Berman and the Sloan family that the Avery Research Center is the best steward for these materials is a testament to the institution’s ability to connect meaningfully with communities in the Lowcountry and around the world. We could not be happier to have the Sloan collection forever preserved and made available right here at the Avery Research Center.”
Visit The Ruins Of This Abandoned South Carolina Town

The 325-acre Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site in Dorchester County, South Carolina dates back to 1697. Then Dorchester was a busy trading town, but it was abandoned after the Revolutionary War. Today, where the town was, are historical ruins that shed light on colonial South Carolina's early history. These ruins are an old brick bell tower of Saint George's Anglican Church, a cemetery with 20 burial sites, an old and partial log shipping wharf, a trail with kiosks, and exhibits depicting the history of a village that was once there, and vast land with archeological treasures.
Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site's History
A Congregationalist (descendants of puritans) group that sailed from Massachusetts and settled in Carolina started the trading town of Dorchester in 1697. The town's proximity to Ashley River made it a vibrant trading hub for nearly a hundred years, but after the Revolutionary War of 1775 to 1783, it was abandoned. Forest grew in the area where the town was, and later it became a protected historical site with archeological ruins of its heydays. At Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site, there are also deeds, diaries, wills, and letters all well-preserved, plus ongoing archeological research and excavations, that inform how life was when the town existed.
The structures and buildings at Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site are called tabby structures. Tabby is a mixture of water, sand, whole oyster plus crushed and burned oysters. These materials were formed into a lime mixture and played a similar role to concrete or cement mixture and were used to build walls.
What To Do At Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site
There are engaging activities available for visitors at the Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site. These include:
After Saint George's Parish was formed in 1717 a church was built and completed in 1720 at Dorchester trading town. The sanctuary was 50 feet in length and 30 feet in width. As the congregation grew they enlarged the church and added a bell tower in 1751. A place was also set apart for a cemetery to bury church members. After the town and church ceased to exist after the Revolutionary War, local families used the cemetery to bury family members.
Tombstones at the site date from 1772 until 1920 and are all over this historic site, with some near the bell tower. Visitors are not allowed to stand, sit or lean on these historic tombstones. Brushing or wiping them to see what's written is also forbidden, but photography is allowed. Visitors keen to learn how to preserve old cemeteries and tombstones like these can contact the South Carolina Department of Archives and History by calling (803) 896-6196.
To understand the town's rich history there are sites called stops from A to I within the park that depict how it functioned and changed during its existence.
At Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site programs are available that permit visitors to participate in archeological digs. The digs reveal the early life in the old colonial town and the American South. There also are educational programs on weekdays and weekends for schools dubbed "Discover Carolina Programs." This site is also ideal for picnics, photo shoots, and geocaching, especially for families with children. During the low tide, visitors can see the log wharf on the Ashley River. Pets on leashes are allowed in outdoor areas.
Dorchester County voters could see penny tax on ballot this fall

(WCSC) - Dorchester County residents are likely to decide in November whether to vote for a penny tax, but a yes vote will not mean they will pay any extra money in taxes.Dorchester County residents have paid a one-cent sales tax since 2005.

ST. GEORGE, S.C. (WCSC) - Dorchester County residents are likely to decide in November whether to vote for a penny tax, but a yes vote will not mean they will pay any extra money in taxes.
Dorchester County residents have paid a one-cent sales tax since 2005. That extra penny from every dollar funds road work. Council Chairman Bill Hearn says the penny tax has created millions of dollars for major projects.
“Some of the projects people would remember would be Dorchester Road and Highway 78, which is still in process. The Berlin Meyers phase three, which was at the top of the priority list, people will remember that has been recently been approved. And we’ll get started here very soon,” Hearn says.
But that penny tax program is set to expire. So Dorchester County voters will decide in November whether to essentially replace that the expiring funding source with a new one.
“It will end in April of 2024, and this penny will take the place of the existing penny in May of 2024,” Hearn says. “So if it passes in the November referendum, it will replace the old penny with a new penny with a new set of projects.”
Hearn says the sales tax brought in about $7 million in its first year in 2005, and that total has since more than tripled.
“Which is great news, except for the fact that the county is running up against the statutory cap, meaning the Department of Revenue caps our ability to collect money and do projects,” Hearns says.
If it passes, the one-cent sales tax will be in place for 15 years, starting in early 2024.
“We need this new penny and that gives us the ability to do a new set of projects. We’re literally limited,” Hearn says. “Going forward, people probably wonder why we haven’t finished Highway 78 Or why we haven’t worked on Maple Street extension or why we haven’t done Orangeburg Road. It’s because we are limited under the old penny the replacement penny will enable us to do those projects.”.
Council members will have a first reading of the referendum at Monday night’s council meeting. They will revisit the plan twice at future council meetings and plan to post the information on the county website before people see it on election day.
The current total program estimate is about $1.5 billion dollars over 15 years. The plan also includes funding for dirt road improvements, an Eagle Chandler Multi-Use Path, pathways, bike trails and the Greenbelt.

Charleston restaurant group takes on first SC lodging since venturing into hotels

A Charleston-based company with multiple restaurants in the Holy City has taken on its first hotel property in South Carolina.
Indigo Road Hospitality Group said this month that it added a 56-room boutique lodging that’s under construction in Georgetown to its lineup of hotels. Called The George, the Front Street hotel will include an outdoor bar and a full-service restaurant that the firm will manage.
Indigo Road operates restaurants like Oak Steakhouse, O-Ku and Indaco in downtown Charleston and recently opened some new dining concepts in town, including Maya, a Mexican eatery on King Street, Brasserie la Banque, a French restaurant on Broad Street, and The Kingstide, a waterfront restaurant on Daniel Island.
The company’s restaurant holdings extend to cities around the country, particularly in the Southeast, like Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh and Washington, D.C.
The hospitality group led by Steve Palmer announced it was venturing into the hotel business in early 2020 with projects in development in Asheville and Savannah. The group now lists eight lodging projects on its website, including The George. Other in-progress hotels Indigo Road has in its porfolio are a 125-key property in Naples, Fla., a historic hotel in Iowa that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and an adaptive re-use of Asheville’s historic Flatiron Building.
Along with its restaurant, The George will have a waterfront event space along the Sampit River and a lawn for lounging and games.
The hotel will occupy the site of the former Georgetown Times offices and will have direct marina access. The bar and restaurant will be on Front Street, the city’s main thoroughfare for local shopping and dining.
Larry Spelts, who heads up Indigo Road’s lodging operations, said The George will be the company’s first hotel holding in its home state.
Georgetown is about halfway between South Carolina’s two top tourist destinations — Myrtle Beach and Charleston.
“We’re honored to be given the opportunity to deliver our experience-driven, high-touch hospitality in such a beautiful city,” Spelts said.
Mount Pleasant-based Jenny Keenan Design, the same interior designer behind The Spectator Hotel in downtown Charleston, will be working on The George, which will take inspiration from Georgetown’s “maritime legacy” and the “casual lifestyle” of the nearby Lowcountry barrier islands.
Joe Keenan of Winyah Hospitality is the developer of the project. The firm paid $1.7 million for the property last year. Work began in February, and the hotel is expected to open in 2023.
Under new management
A Pee Dee-based hotel group with multiple holdings in the Charleston area can now count another Lowcountry lodging among its slate of properties.
Raines Hospitality out of Florence now has a Fairfield Inn and Suites in North Charleston in its portfolio. The 84-room, Marriott-affiliated lodging at 2540 N. Forest Drive is near Northwoods Mall and Ashley Phosphate Road.
The hotel is the seventh Charleston-area property for Raines, which has a secondary office in Mount Pleasant. Other lodgings it manages in the Lowcountry market include a pair of recently-built Cambria hotels, in Mount Pleasant and in Summerville, and a Hyatt Place hotel at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre.
The property is the fourth where Raines will be the third-party manager. It came under new ownership in March 2022 after a $6.06 million sale to an affiliate of locally based Trishul Hospitality.
Most of Raines’ portfolio is made up of operator-owned hotels, but managing partner Grey Raines said in a statement about the Fairfield deal that, while the company hasn’t “talked much about it,” third-party management has been a “major focus and will continue to be.”
“While we own the majority of the properties in our portfolio, our decades-long experience as an owner puts us in a better position than many of our competitors, as we know how owners think, what they need, and how to execute,” Raines said.
Raines Hospitality is planning “minimal renovations” to the North Charleston hotel, like new TVs, cosmetic upgrades to bathrooms, new seating for the lobby, landscaping and a “refresh” for the parking lot, sidewalks and curbing.
