MY TURN: Fairfield Teacher Village is solution for housing

By Dr. Sue Rex, special to Statehouse Report

WINNSBORO, S.C. | Teachers are leaving their profession in increasing numbers. At a time when students, their parents, and communities need experienced and talented teachers as perhaps never before, the profession is falling short of attracting the quantity and quality of recruits needed to ensure our nation’s future.

Enrollments in teacher preparation programs in colleges and universities continue to decrease. This diminishing supply of “new blood” in the profession’s pipeline is increasingly alarming because more experienced teachers are now retiring early, or simply leaving the profession for other careers.

The reasons given for not pursuing a career in teaching and the reasons given for abandoning that career are both familiar and new. They include: poor pay and working conditions; lack of administrative support; student behavior; and insufficient professional autonomy. But, more recent reasons also include: the risks and the demands created by the pandemic; inability to afford to live near their work; price of fuel; and inadequate professional and emotional support.

So how can a district, or state, or a nation for that matter begin to address such a complex and varied set of circumstances? Thanks to the informed generosity of Dominion Energy and the visionary leadership of educators and community volunteers, Fairfield County is pursuing a unique approach to addressing a number of the causes of the shortage.

The Fairfield Teacher Village will be the first of its kind in South Carolina – and one of the very first in America – when it opens next summer. It is coming at a time when the U.S. is needing to aggressively and creatively address so many of our problems. This one, however, having the quantity and quality of teachers to adequately prepare our children for our collective future, must be solved for the others to be resolved. The need is urgent. Thankfully, Fairfield is an example of educators, corporate and business leaders, and community volunteers showing that they-and all of us-are up to the challenge.

The concept being pursued is designed to give this underserved rural school district not only an “incentive” package to competitively attract the quantity and quality of teachers it needs; but, even more importantly, to create a “community” of early career and experienced teachers who, together, can address more effectively many of the other concerns that are causing teachers to leave the profession early.

The Fairfield County School District Education Foundation is a nonprofit corporation established to support the mission of the Fairfield County School District. The Foundation’s signature initiative, originally envisioned by Superintendent Dr. J.R. Green, is to creatively address the state’s growing crisis of recruiting and retaining outstanding teachers to rural districts, beginning with Fairfield County.

Over 70% of Fairfield County teachers do not presently live in our county, which means, among other things, that they do not spend their money in our county. Our foundation hopes by providing affordable, attractive housing for interested teachers they will choose to not only live in Winnsboro but to shop and support local businesses, engage in the community outside of the school day and participate in unparalleled opportunities for teachers to collaborate.

The Fairfield County School District Board of Trustees has donated 22 acres of land for the project. The Foundation received from a county legal settlement with Dominion Energy an earmarked $2.2 million grant to complete phase 1 of the project. This money will be used to complete the infrastructure for 30 homesites and the initial construction of eight to 10 homes. We hope the first group of teachers will be able to become residents during the summer of 2023. In the meantime, additional funding is being pursued, which will allow phase 2 to begin with the building of20 additional homes and a clubhouse.

When fully implemented, the “Fairfield Teacher Village” will be a newly built single family rental community dedicated to housing Fairfield County classroom teachers. Retaining Fairfield classroom teachers will be a priority; but depending on housing availability, new Fairfield County teachers will also qualify as residents of the Village. Not inconsequentially, the addition of this community of college educated full-time residents within the town limits of Winnsboro will also have a welcomed and significant positive economic impact.

WINNSBORO – Winnsboro’s Paul Dove was named the state’s top Lion on Saturday.

A Lion for 31 years, Dove, 78, is currently a past president of the Winnsboro Lions Club and has served in every Lions Club office over the years except one – that of International Director.

“He says he’s not going there,” said Bobbie Dove, his wife and fellow Lion. “It’s time for him to slow down. But he doesn’t seem to be doing that. He just goes, goes, goes,” she said with a smile.

Dove’s volunteer career in Lions began in the Marion Lions Club in 1984. He joined the Winnsboro Club in 2009.

Since then, he has served as Club President (2011-2012), Zone Chair (2013-2014), 2VDG, District D (2014-2015), 1st VDG District (2015-2016), District Governor, District 32D (2016-2017), District Administrator for District 32D (2017-2018), MD 32 Vice Council Chair (2018-2019), and MD 32 Council Chair (2019-2020).

Dove has served on the Board of Directors for Lions Vision Services (2016-2017), (2019-2020), as the District 32-S Global Service Team Coordinator, 2017-2021, and received the International Presidents Award for his performance in that position.

Dove has sponsored a total of 12 Lions and is currently the Guiding Lion for the SC Cyber Lions Club. Both are flourishing and growing. He has also been instrumental in bringing Vision Screening to the Fairfield County Schools.

“Without his determination and leadership, it would not have happened and those children having referrals would not receive treatment or glasses,” said fellow Lion Rhett Hair.

Dove continues to serve his community by delivering Meals on Wheels, working with the County Food Bank collecting and delivering food as needed each week and managing the Winnsboro Lions Clubs Eyeglasses Recycling program. He also works with the County’s Recycling Program for Plastic, Glass and Cardboard.

For recognition of his outstanding service to Lions Clubs of South Carolina he was inducted into the SC Lions Hall of Fame in 2020.

For his service as a Lion he has received the Melvin Jones Fellow, Progressive Franklin Mason Fellow, District Governor’s Certificate of Appreciation, District C, 2017, Multiple International Presidents’ Certificates of Appreciation, International Leadership Award, 2013-2014, the International President’s Award, 2017-2018 and the International Leadership Award, 2019-2020.

He has also been involved locally with Eagle Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, and has served as sponsor of Fairfield County’s WW II Memorial monument, Board of Directors of FOSCL (Friends of SC Libraries) Friends of the Fairfield County Library, Fairfield County Library Commission and immediate past chair, Marion County Library Board of Trustees.

Dove is a member of the Mt. Sion Society, Friends of Mt. Zion Institute, Member of Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce, First United Methodist Church, Salkehatchie Summer Service volunteer, Francis Marion University (FMU) Board of Trustees, the University of North Carolina (UNC) Alumni Association, Omicron Delta Kappa and Bet Phi Mu Professor Emeritus at Francis Marion. Dove is a graduate of Erskine College, University of South Carolina and University of North Carolina.

Referred to affectionately by his fellow Lions as the Lions’ Lion, “Dove is the kind of Volunteer Leader that we all strive to be like,” Hair said. “He deserves to be recognized for his lifetime of service.”

A new outdoor music venue is opening on Friday at Carolina Adventure World in Winnsboro, SC.

WINNSBORO, S.C. — The Arrowhead Pavilion at the Carolina Adventure World (CAW) opens on Friday. The venue is expected to bring thousands of tourist to Northeast Winnsboro, near Lake Wateree.

"I would hope that it puts Winnsboro back on the map again," said Connor Little, who lives in Fairfield County. "I feel like the bigger names, that go to the concerts, are definitely going to bring more people, which could bring more people here."

The CAW have remodeled the existing facility into the outdoor facility where performers will come entertain thousands of people.

Rodney Atkins will be the first performer, on April 1 at the CAW Country Concert Series breaking in the new stage.

With more people coming to Fairfield County, that could mean more revenue.

“Hopefully what it’ll do is change people’s perception in their minds that there’s so much to do in Fairfield County, if you know where it is," said Gene Stephens, President, Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce. "Having them come to our county, they see how special it is, our ultimate goal is to have them move to Fairfield County. We want to grow."

Stephens explains the music pavilion will have a big economic impact for the County and is a kickstart to years of development.

"You will start to see us expand in the next 5 to 10 years with accommodations, with hospitality, with all kind of different venues to support people and tourism," Stephens said. "So yes, that will have a big economic impact, almost like a jump start to that process."

The owner of Southern Entertainment, Bob Durkin said the Arrowhead Pavilion is one of many projects to bring more tourists.

"There's a ton of renovations going on out here," Durkin said. "Making more camping spots, making the trails obviously better to ride with UTVs and you'll be able to rent the guided tours in May and June. But on top of that, we've also added a new restaurant called arrowhead tavern right outside but just everything you see right here. So I mean this is a gorgeous part of South Carolina."

He told News 19, their first goal is to get more exposure for the venue.

"Eventually the revenue will come," Durkin said. "Right now, if we could just add 500 or a thousand more people and eyes to expose them to this place and they’ll see what the beauty is all about, see how great they are."

Traveling from North Carolina, Garrett Smith and Chris Frampton are visiting CAW for the weekend.

"We definitely like the family atmosphere," Smith said.

"Yeah the family atmosphere is really nice," Frampton added.

They hope the Pavilion will bring in more excitement to the area and more tourists like them.

Fairfield County Council says the town owes over $60K

WINNSBORO, S.C. — Residents in the Town of Winnsboro could lose their trash services, or be paying more for trash pick up."I really don't feel that they should be charging for this service at all," said Winnsboro Resident, Jeneria.

WINNSBORO, S.C. — Residents in the Town of Winnsboro could lose their trash services, or be paying more for trash pick up.

"I really don't feel that they should be charging for this service at all," said Winnsboro Resident, Jeneria. She wishes to keep her last name anonymous.

Jeneria said she pays the town a monthly fee to pick up her trash.

"The waste from our citizens, we send out trash trucks, we collect it, we aggregate it, and then we dump it in their facility," said Jason Taylor, Manger for the Town of Winnsboro."

Taylor said in the past, the town never had to pay to use the county dump.

"The county passed a unilateral fee without giving the town any notice, proper notice that we feel," Taylor said.

Last year, the county send the Town a bill charging $61.83 per ton of trash. Fairfield County's Deputy Administrator, Synithia Williams, confirmed with News 19, Winnsboro has never been charged for trash drop offs in the past.

But with the newly added feel, the town owes more than $61,811.75 According to County Council Chairman, Moses Bell, the fee was included in last years budget.

If the bill isn't paid, the Town will lose services to the county facility. Taylor said if Winnsboro does pay for the usage, residents could see an increase in their trash pick up fees.

Taylor adds, currently town residents pay $7 a month for trash pick up. Town Council has made a resolution, stating they will not pay the bill.

"I just really feel they could be trying to help with other things going on in our communities than to be fighting over trash," Jeneria said.

If services are cut off, Williams said residents are still able to drop off their residential waste to any of the County’s recycling drop off centers for free.

Another Winnsboro resident who wanted to remain anonymous said, without trash services, it could lead to more problems for the town.

"They'll basically let them pile it up in their backyard until something happens. It will be a lot of roaches, a lot of vermin, mice, rats. It just comes with the trash," the resident said.

The town is expected to pay the bill by March 30. Both the county and the town hope to have a mutual resolution before the deadline.

South Carolina cities, towns still recovering from tourism loss after COVID

Some towns and cities are finally seeing a boost in visitors after being nearly empty for the past year due to the pandemic.WINNSBORO, S.C. — After a year of COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns, some towns and cities are finally seeing a boost in tourism."We’re starting to get back to some normalcy, especially since the town dropping off the face mask ordinance," said Gene Stephens, president of the Fairfield County Chamber of Co...

Some towns and cities are finally seeing a boost in visitors after being nearly empty for the past year due to the pandemic.

WINNSBORO, S.C. — After a year of COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns, some towns and cities are finally seeing a boost in tourism.

"We’re starting to get back to some normalcy, especially since the town dropping off the face mask ordinance," said Gene Stephens, president of the Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce.

Stephens said downtown Winnsboro is regaining the amount of traffic it had before the pandemic.

"Winnsboro has been down for a little while, as far as a few years," Stephens said. "We actually did, during the pandemic, we did three ribbon cuttings on Main Street right here in Winnsboro. Some new businesses opening up during the pandemic."

He said Fairfield County had six ribbon cuttings for new businesses during the pandemic.

The owner of Pauling's Barbering Services in Winnsboro, Clarence Pauling, said business is slowly returning but their numbers aren't close to where they were pre-pandemic.

"Business was relatively good before the pandemic came on," Pauling said. "It’s not bad now, but it’s not as good as it was."

Pauling told News 19 they were able to stay in business thanks to proper budgeting.

"It comes from budgeting, you know," Pauling said. "At a certain time, you put money back, just in case hard times do hit. It isn’t so much as the money, it isn't so much as people. It's because people are scared to spend the money. They know they have to put it back because you don't know what's coming next."

Stephens said boutiques have bounced back to pre-pandemic sales, but service businesses like insurance companies and restaurants have been a slower recovery.

"Employment is the biggest issue we are facing," Stephens said. "Restaurants are having troubles getting the employees that they need."

Stephens said Winnsboro has been gaining more traffic and hoping to have a more consistent flow of visitors. To gain more traffic in town, he said they held an event in April that brought over 500 people to Winnsboro.

"We’re starting to see more traffic," Stephens said. "It’s starting to pick back up but having consistent traffic down here, especially in our downtown area and even our bypass, all that comes from promotion, doing different things to let people know, ‘OK, these businesses are still here.'"

He said Fairfield County has been hosting and planning more events to bring more traction into the Winnsboro community. Some of the events include a farmer's market, food truck events, setting up bounce houses for kids, and more.

On July 17, the county plans to have a Christmas in July event to bring more visitors into the town. Pauling said the town of Winnsboro will continue to grow stronger and get back to the way it was before the pandemic.

"Winnsboro has had a lot of ups and downs, losing Mack truck, losing Walmart, and a couple of small businesses that were here," Pauling said. "But Winnsboro isn't going anywhere. It's the people, it's our resolve that keeps us going."
