Series: All!Scripture: Matthew 13:1-17Acts 2:37-38, 3:19, 8:22, 20:21, 26:20Title: What is Repentance?Heavy credit: David Platt and Douglas Sean O'Donnell (See below for bibliography)Summary of chapter: “John the Baptist begins his ministry and baptizes Jesus. The Holy Spirit descends upon Jesus and God declares that he is pleased with his Son.” (Outline Bible)Bottom Line: Repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of living. Entering the Kingdom of God requires repentance of sins.Story: CWP letter, finger prints and my trip to the Goose Creek police department on a Friday afternoon. (3:58)“Lord, keep me close and keep me clean.” -Dr. Bill Bennett, pastor and professorDiscussion questions for group and personal study:Note: We encourage you to use our sermons and discussion questions to gather with some friends and talk about the passage together. Pray and ask God to guide you. He is faithful. Questions? Email us at info@GraceToday.netFind our sermons, podcasts, discussion questions and notes at https://www.gracetoday.net/podcastGoal: The goal isn't to ask every question. The goal is to encourage people to engage the scriptures together.1. Why is it significant that John's first command had to do with repentance?2. What is the difference between regretful confession and true repentance?3. How are some church attenders similar to the Jews who counted on family heritage for salvation?4. How would you counsel someone who professes Christ but shows no marks of repentance?5. How did the arrival of the kingdom point to the nearness of both salvation and damnation?6. How would you explain to a non-Christian that a"hellfire and damnation" sermon expresses love?7. Explain why John's baptism and Christian baptism appear to exclude infants.8. How are all three members of the Trinity present in Matthew 3:15-17?9. Why was Jesus baptized if He had no sin?10. What is the difference between resolving to be good before salvation In resolving to be obey God after salvation?Scripture:“In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' ” John's clothes were made of camel's hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. People went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region of the Jordan. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.' I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”” Matthew 3:1-7, 9-17 NIV https://matthew.bible/matthew-3-17Opening:"…Additionally, the ancestry was important to demonstrate that Matthew's Gospel did not pertain to a mythical character or hero. To the Jew, the ancestry testified to historical reality.Several years ago a friend of mine, a missionary with Wycliffe Bible Translators, worked among a people who had never heard the gospel in their language. The people could not write or read, so all their communication was oral. The missionary's first task was to learn the language of the tribe. Then she had to change that oral language into written form and teach the people to read and write it. It was a laborious task that took many years. Only after all that was accomplished could she undertake the task of translating the Bible into this language. She began with the Gospel of Matthew. To expedite the project she skipped the genealogy to get to the meat and substance of the story of Christ, and then she sent her translation work off to be printed by a publisher in a distant city. She waited months for the first copies of Matthew to arrive at the compound, and when the trucks came in with the Bibles, or, at least, the Gospel of Matthew, the people were much more interested in the trucks than they were in the translation. After having spent ten years on the project, she was crushed when she saw that the people didn't care at all.Nevertheless, she persevered in her task, and in the second edition of Matthew she included the genealogy. When that arrived the missionary explained the genealogy to the tribal chief, and he said, "Are you trying to say that this Jesus you've been telling us about for ten years was a real person?" She replied, "Yes, of course." He said, "I thought you were telling us a story about some mythical character."Once he understood that this Christ was real in space and time, the chief came to Christ, and shortly thereafter the whole tribe came to Christ.”—Douglas Sean O'DonnellOutline based largely on David Platt and Douglas Sean O'DonnellI.

They will likely not be threatened or abandoned because of this.In other countries, they would do this a great personal threat to their literal lives.Why do it then? Because they have come and seen who Jesus is and what he's done. God has opened their eyes to see clearly. And they have believed what they have seen as more evidence that all God has said is trustworthy.What about you?What do I want you to know? The gospelWhat do I want you to do? Believe and receive the gospel and live accordingly. It's more than a game-changer. It's true life-change. Transformational.At the end I will invite you to do what many in this room have already done. To consider who Jesus is and what he's done and then responding as you see fit.My hope is that by believing you'll find true and abundant life in his name. At the very least, I hope it will lead to more conversations about this for you in the near future.We're going to look at this through the eyes of a couple of women who witness stuff before anyone else does.

Michael: Hey, everyone, and welcome to another episode of the Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum and today with me, we have our certified agent Joe Porter for the Charleston, South Carolina Market. He's going to be talking to us today about all the things we need to know as investors before getting involved in that space. So let's get into it. Joe Porter, what's going on, man? Thanks for taking the time to hang out with me today. Joe: Hello, you're welcome. Thanks for having me. Michael: My pleasure. I am super excited to talk to everybody with you about Charleston, South Carolina. Tell us a little bit Joe, first off who you are, where you come from? How long have you been an agent? And are you an investor personally, quickfire questions to get started… Joe: Absolutely, ready to go. So I moved to Charleston to attend the College of Charleston about 22 years ago. And like many other people, never left. I came from the Washington DC area and visited the region one time and never looked back. So shortly after graduating from the College of Charleston, I was one of the many residual recipients of ninja loans, okay, so, you know, I knew a ton of people who needed rooms for rent, and I got the bright idea, let's buy a house. And I was working at a bartender out on Folly Beach at the time, and was making tips and Wells Fargo decided to give me $200,000, which I bought my first house with that sort of kicked off my real estate career. Once I found that house, I kind of got the bug and never stopped looking. So I went in from there and got my real estate license. I'm not a very sales oriented person. So I knew from there, I wanted to embark on sort of the investing side of things. So I signed on as a buyer for: the we buy ugly houses franchise home investor. Michael: Okay. Joe: So that sort of gave me the framework of looking how to, you know, analyze a deal, the repairs, and how to present an offer to the seller. And right about that time, I established a brokerage to sort of dovetail my, you know, investing, dealings and offers to then list retail, I experienced some success there. And then the bottom of the market fell off and I just had a bunch of listings and no buyers. At that point, I guess this was around, you know, 2000/ 7, 8, 9 I came up with a bright idea to start buying houses. So I put together a little mean, machine of a crew with the idea to have the acquisitions improvement and management all under one umbrella. And we started buying houses, okay. So the first house I bought was in North Charleston, it was a single family detached home for $12,000. Michael: What? Joe: It pulled… Yeah, oh yeah. Someone had yanked all the copper plumbing out of it, all the copper wires. It had been, you know, sitting vacant as a foreclosure, you know, owned by, you know, the Bank of New York and so that was the first house. And we went in, renovated it, rather quickly. And, you know, rented it out and that was my proof of concept. I said, this works out great. You know, at the time, I rented it out for $800 a month. Today, I still have that house, you know, what now almost 15 years later, and it's a 1200 a month rental for me. Michael: And what did you spend on the rehab? Do you recall? Joe: You know, at this point, I did everything myself. You know, I knew enough to be dangerous, but now, I know I really didn't know anything about renovations and construction. So I cut some corners but you know, and I was buying used materials, things like that. I spent about seven grand on the rehab Michael: So you bought it for 12, put seven into it and then rented it for a 50. Dude… Joe: Yes, and didn't take an accountant to, to like those returns. Michael: That's incredible. I don't think I've ever heard of it like, that's like a 4% plus property. Joe: Yes, indeed. So after that, you know, I brought in more people on the construction side to help me out, we put… put a crew together, and I continued to participate in the labor, we bought one house after another. And then, you know, we did about 10/ 12 houses a year. And I currently own and manage about 55 rental units in the Charleston area. So they're all scattered site, single family detached. And, you know, so I spent a solid about eight years just doing that cumulating. And then, since the market has shifted, I've focused more on my brokerage activities, I brought my wife, Claire in on the business, and she helps with buying and selling. So last year, we did about 15 million in transactions, but 50 sites. Year before we did about 14 million. So right now, we are solely focused on the brokerage activity. And if you know something should present itself from an acquisition standpoint, we jump on it, our business model is, you know, will present when we go on a listing appointment, will present an array of options. So, you know, first option is, you know, hey, I see what you got, we could sell it as is, for this price, we can also help you with some of the repairs, and we'll pitch in on the repair costs, bring our crew in to help maximize the cost of the or maximize the value, we do a cost value approach there. And then the third and final option, when it's appropriate, we can buy directly from you, no commissions, no closing costs, you know, on your timeline, whatever, whatever you want to do there. So doing that we have, we'll add a couple to the portfolio, we'll buy maybe one or two a year that will be flips, and then we'll list you know, about 50 years. Michael: Joe, this is amazing. Man, there's so much here that I want to unpack, we'll have to have you back on just to talk about that side of your business. But I want to, I want to shift gears here a little bit and talk about Charleston, as a market so that all of our listeners can get an idea of what they could expect why they should be excited about the market. So can you give us just some high level overview of: Are people moving to Charleston? And if so why? You know, what companies are headquartered there? What jobs are available for folks? Joe: Yes, so the secret is out on Charleston. It is currently, I think ranked the 12 fastest growing metro area in the United States, we have about 38 people a day moving to the region. Especially over the past two years, we've seen a bit of a migration of both, you know, people trying to leave more crowded, you know, urban environments, or baby boomers coming to retirement age. And so those are the type of migration that we're seeing in the area. You know, Charleston, people might know it, as, you know, the historic downtown. You know, 20 years ago, our economy was based on tourism, and hospitality. So we were, you know, just in that service sector, and that was about it. But since then, you know, our economy has exploded, we now are anchored in manufacturing. So the state of South Carolina is very sort of, you know, company friendly. We're offering incentives for companies to move here and set up shop. You know, there's not a lot of labor unions or, you know, thing it's a right to work state, so companies like that. So that's lured Boeing from Seattle, to North Charleston. Volvo's setting up here, Mercedes, Daimler, Chrysler, Bosch, new core. Those are examples of some of the companies here in the Charleston area in the manufacturing sector. We also have a military presence. Okay, we have a joint base, that's Air Force. We have a naval, naval weapons station, and a nucular submarine school based in Goose Creek, which is just 15 minutes north of Charleston. And there's also going to be developing one of the larger Coast Guard schools here, so we have military and then education, my alma mater, College of Charleston, the Citadel and the Medical School of South Carolina. You know that along with our port activity, so Charleston, has just completed a port deepening. So that makes us the deepest port on the east coast. So lots of importing, exporting, is bringing a bunch of, you know, auxilary businesses with it to the… Michael: Yeah, oh my gosh, that's really interesting. I had no idea. So…okay… Joe: …there's a lot happening here. Michael: Uh, yeah, sure, sounds like it. Joe, I'm wondering if you could do a screen share and kind of give everybody who's watching this online, a visual tour of the city, if you will. And if you could share with us, where do you like to look for your investments? And where should folks be looking for there's based on if they're targeting cash flow, or some appreciation potential? Joe: So one of the things I like about Charleston is, you know, our sub markets, okay, this is a unique region that's geographically defined by all this water here, okay. So if you could see my cursor, here, we have the downtown Peninsula, okay. So everybody knows, the historic Charleston downtown. There is a district within the Peninsula downtown, that's been designated for short term rentals, okay. And as a result, you know, prices are up your average property will sell for over a million dollars. But that's situated in the middle of the peninsula here where, you know, you know, vacationers guests can come and, you know, walk the city, which is very walkable, you can see it's not very big the, the downtown Peninsula, okay. You know, one of the things that makes Charleston so unique is the fact that they've kept all their historic buildings. So there's buildings, you know, 1800s just beautiful along the battery here, which makes it a big attraction. They also have lots of rules to what you can and can't do with properties. So, for example, we have a height restriction. The buildings cannot be higher than the large, you know, the tallest church steeple. So they call it the holy city, you look at the skyline, and you see nothing but church steeples, okay, downtown. So as a result, they have lifted the height restriction, we call this the neck area, which is part of the Peninsula, that sort of, you know… isn't very wide. And so there's a bunch of growth here in this area, where, you know, there's some high rises, some more development happening, as opposed to the downtown area, which you know, was full about 200 years ago. Michael: Okay. Joe: Then, of course, you have your barrier islands, okay. This is a great place for short term rentals. So we have Folly Beach out here, we have Kiawah Island. And to the north here, we have island homes, and Solomon's Island. These are excellent places to invest in that beach house. Okay, I got one on Folly Beach, where it's a five bedroom, three and a half bath, where we'll do $100,000 in gross rental revenue this year, from our season that's getting ready to start in mid-March and go through September. Michael: Holy smokes, and what do you buy it for Joe? Joe: I bought that house for just over a million dollars. Michael: That's incredible. Joe: And then we have our more suburban communities to the south James Island. That's where I live most of the year. John's Island, one of the largest Sea Islands on the East Coast, that's mostly residential and upcoming area. A lot of this, you know, you could drive not very far outside of Charleston, say 30 minutes to get you through Johns Island, and to more rural places like Guatemala, where you think you're in the middle of nowhere, but you're still a stone's throw away from Charleston. One area of significant growth would be the Somerville area. Okay. So some of these manufacturers that I'm talking about Volvo Chrysler, Daimler, they are setting up shop along this I-26 corridor. And so as a result, we're seeing a lot of newer developments such as: Next in, you know, nicely done, new schools that are becoming great areas to invest. For example, you might see a, you know, three bedroom, single family home, new construction in the mid three hundreds low for hundreds come available, that type of property would rent for about $2,200 a month. Michael: This is great, this is great. And do you have more like entry level price point neighborhoods and suburbs? Joe: Yes. So entry level for Charleston would be right around that mid $300,000. So there's areas Mount Pleasant would be the most sort of desirable suburb. The entry level there is about 700,000, James Island entry level about 400,000. Now John's, we still were in the three hundreds. And then areas north North Charleston, this area of Goose Creek. This outlined area in gray here is the Naval Weapons Station. So this is a great area for rentals, and buying newer homes in Goose Creek, where you can get a house in, you know, around 300 to 350,000 and have a bunch of good renter's here. There's also some areas of North in the south end of North Charleston that are quite popular. This area is referred to as Park Circle, sort of Old North Charleston community developed in the 40s, 50s. And then these areas here where I own a bunch of rental properties, this is called Dorchester Terrace Waylon, where you could still get a house for under 200,000. This was all developed in the 30s and 40s. Because we had the naval base, huge naval base here on the Cooper River. So the houses are 80 years old, but they represent a good location and, you know, high demand for rentals. Michael: Fantastic and Joe, can you give everyone listening and watching an idea of some traditional things to be aware of if they are going to be thinking about investing in Charleston? So for instance, how do property taxes work? And then what kind of natural hazards or catastrophes are known to hit the Charleston area and that people should be aware of? Joe: Okay, well, I'll start with, with the second question here, of course, with all the water, okay, flood insurance, okay. Lots of properties, lots of areas are in flood, well, everything's in a flood zone, but a lot are in A, E, V zones, that would represent, you know, flood risk, and therefore, most properties carry flood insurance. Michael: Okay. Joe: Certainly the ones on the barrier islands do downtown, there are certain areas to be aware of where there's drainage issues. However, in the suburbs here, you get a little bit out of you know, that this 526 corridor here, your typical flood insurance policy in A zone will run you about $700 a year. So nothing, you know, cost prohibitive. However, if you get into some of these beach or low lying areas, you're looking at, you know, 2500- 5,000 a year, as well as you know, the risk of flooding. So there's always something to be aware of. That's one of the first questions I'll ask property owners or sellers: Okay, do you have an elevation certificate detailing how high your house is in relationship to the base flood elevation? And how much is your flood insurance policy? And is that policy assumable? So that's one thing to be aware of, in this area. Property taxes to address that are, I would say relatively affordable or cheaper than other areas. So your average price home, you know, say 350,000, which is the median price here in Charleston, your property taxes will be about $5,500 a year. So I think that's relatively pretty, you know, affordable. Michael: Got it, got it. So like one and a half percent 1.4%, roughly, of the purchase price, Joe: Correct, yeah. And so, um, we do a point of sale assessment. So a property's value is reassessed at the point of purchase and it's assessed for that amount, and then from there, there's a cap it can't, the value cannot go up more than 10% and then it's milled down from there. So it's not that you're there's a cap that it'll jump 10%, is the assessed value. So once you're there, you're locked in, basically, you know, incrementally increase if the, you know, if the market continues to do so. Michael: Okay, got it. And everyone's talking right now we're recording this middle of February, about how crazy and red hot the market seems to be. And we always like to remind folks that hey real estate is done locally and so well, one market might be red hot, others might be less so. So talk to us a little bit about what you're seeing in the Charleston market, how much supply do you have? How fast are these homes going for? And kind of that, what percentage of the list price are they moving at? Joe: So we've had a similar supply and demand dynamic as most markets, we have very little supply in high demand. Currently, in our more Tri County area in the MLS, there's about 900 properties for sale, if you strip out new construction or proposed construction, it comes closer to 500. Okay, that would represent under one month of inventory, so about three weeks. So you know, if another house doesn't come online, in three weeks, we'll be down to zero. So I've never seen it this low. So it's definitely inventory is constrained. As a result, you know, we've received, we've, you know, had basically 22% price appreciation over last year, so prices are skyrocketing. And, you know, it is a tough market. It's, you know, but investors who are willing to, you know, take on maybe a house that needs repairs, or act quickly, or have the ability to, you know, go in on an offer cash, they certainly have a leg up in this environment. Michael: Okay. Okay, and where are you coaching your buyers to do to win offers? Joe: As quickly, of course, sometimes, will awaive appraisals, or put in appraisal buffers, stating that, you know, if we are going to use financing, you know, we'll be able to kick in extra money towards the down payment. Sometimes we'll pitch a cash offer and be able to submit proof of funds in in, you know, saying we're willing to close with cash, and then we'll substitute with financing at the closing. Other times, we'll you know, say we're, you know, based on a walkthrough inspection, or you know, you do enough due diligence upfront that will buy the house as is. Average days on market are about three. So the speed of which you act is, is very important. And then average selling price to list price is about 98%. So, you know, if you're going to, you know, make an offer, you better bring it. So that's some of the things we do to coach our buyers in this market. Michael: It makes total sense and great insights. Joe, I'm curious to get your opinion kind of thoughts around as you're looking at properties to post to Roofstock because you're obviously our certified agent out in the Charleston market. What is it that you're looking for what makes a great investment property, in your opinion? Joe: One thing I'm super excited about is, Roofstock short term rental market, okay. And we don't have Charleston online quite yet, but we're working towards it. But I think some of the higher rate of return will be in this Isla palms, Folly Beach, Keola, on the short term rental side, as well as downtown Charleston. The numbers that are being produced here are amazing. So once we get the short term rental stuff up and running, I'd love for everybody to you know, hone in on, on some of those properties. Because, you know, we have properties on Cuba, for example, that are producing over well over $350,000 a year on a short term basis. Michael: Holy smokes and what are the list price on some of those just to give people some perspective? Joe: So that particular one I'm referencing, it's called the ocean blue and it's listed on our website: http://kiawahislandgetaways.com/ . And that was a million dollar, it was $1.4 million attached, so it's condo regime stuff, oceanfront home, that the owners spent a million on the interior. I mean, this thing looks like it's out of Southern Living… Michael: Holy Smokes… Joe: …and that's on Kiawah Island, which is a resort, I don't know if anybody saw the PGA Championship on the ocean course here. This past year Kiawah Island has five amazing golf courses, they have great amenities pools and a very nice beach. It's very walkable, there's, you know, parks and pass throughout the island. And so that's a nice spot for everybody to know about. But back on, you know, the majority of people doing the long term, buy and hold investing, I am on the outskirts of Charleston. Okay, so I'm looking at this more entry level pricing for the area around 350 and below, I'm looking for some of the newer builds, I'm looking for houses that are not in, you know, flood zones, not within expensive HOA areas, and ones that are within the path of progress. So, for example, this Summerville area here that is continuing to grow and flourish. I'm posting things in Goose Creek by the Air Force Base Hanahan, you know, that have good school districts, I'm posting those type of properties where there's been a strong demand for that type of housing, and strong growth in that area. Michael: Love it, love it. Joe, this has been super insightful man, I'm curious to know, though, in your opinion, how can buyers be best prepared to work with you in the Charleston market? Joe: Well, I think, you know, come and visit, you know, come, come take a look for yourselves. And I'd be happy to show people around and, you know, show them the different areas, you know, back to my point about these different sub markets. Okay, so, you know, we have these islands and sub markets, and each one has its own little flavor, each one has its, you know, is unique for different reasons. So, it really depends on, you know, whether the investors, you know, purely return driven, or maybe they want to have a place they can stay sometimes when they visit, there's, there's a lot of different angles here. So it really comes down to the investors, you know, needs, and, you know, from there, we could turn them on to different areas. So, come and visit, come hang out with me, that would be one suggestion, you know, and then, you know, get, make sure to have all your ducks in the row. And, you know, make sure of course, financing, if you're going to finance a property, you know, proof of funds ready to go and be ready to pull the trigger, you know, I'll be able to do a walk through inspection, I'm underwriting these properties for repairs, I have a strong knowledge base of, you know, the rental market, and know when it's appropriate to push on that rental price. And where we can eke out some more money and have a pretty good understanding of, you know, where the activity is, and where the growth is going to be. So, you know, give me a call, you can get in touch with me, you know, my website: http://lighthousecharleston.com/ , or email me at: email@example.com , and we can, you know, further the conversation, but, you know, in short, you have to act fast, and throw your hat in the ring to get in. I do think that, you know, we had a little bit of a law, as many markets did, you know, ended December, early January, but then, you know, really started pick up this first year, lots of activity, you know, more houses are being built, you know, you know, sellers now, you know, we're trying to convince, you know, people who are ready to exit the market to do so. So, you know, there'll be more opportunities coming and so just, I'm on the MLS checking every single day, you know, what's being listed, and posting those opportunities straight to Roofstock. So you're getting the, you know, up to date information because once something's posted, you'll probably see it go pending within a day or two. You know, you'll see multiple offer scenarios. One other tool we're using, you know, we're introducing escalation clauses. So we're setting a cap on the purchase price, based on you know, what type of return you want, or you know, the deal itself where it's priced, and we're saying we'll beat the next offer by, you know, depending on the price point 1000, $5,000. And so that way you're not going in blind leaving money on the table, we're just escalating that purchase. Michael: That's great, that's great. Joe, this has been super insightful. I know I'm getting really excited about the Charleston market, definitely want to be in touch with you. Thanks again for coming on, I appreciate you. Joe: My pleasure, thank you for having me. Michael: You're welcome and I will talk to you, I'm sure, take care. Okay, well, that was our episode, a big thank you to Joe for coming on. I know, I got super excited about the Charleston market, I need to do some more research on my own. Looking forward to seeing many of you out there. As always, if you liked the episode, please feel free to leave us a rating or review wherever it is, you listen to our podcasts, and we look forward to seeing the next one. Happy investing…

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of February 21, 2022. This revised episode from February 2018 is part of a series this year of winter-relatedepisodes. MUSIC – ~15 sec - Lyrics: “Mama, oh mama, it was out by the water's edge.”This week, that excerpt of “Waters Edge,” from the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Va.-based band, The Steel Wheels, sets the stage for going to a water body's edge to explore freezing water. Have a listen for about 15 seconds to the following mystery sounds, and see if you can guess what cold-water experience was taking place. And here's a hint: the speaker and the water were both running. SOUNDS - ~15 sec If you guessed, wading into an icy river, you're right! You heard me at the edge of the New River in Giles County, Va., on January 1, 2018, wading—very quickly!—into the partially iced-over river. After nighttime temperatures in the teens or lower for several days, about half of the river's surface in some locations on that New Year's morning was covered in ice.Rivers throughout Virginia will freeze during notably cold winter spells, but it's not a routine occurrence. River freeze-ups are really noteworthy in the tidal sections of the James, Rappahannock, and other Commonwealth rivers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed; in those sections, the water is somewhat salty, called brackish, so it has a lower freezing point. When rivers do freeze, ice typically forms first at the river edges, where in slow currents surface water can lose heat to colder air while not being mixed with warmer water. This border ice can also form in slower currents around rocks or other obstacles well away from shore. In stronger currents that keep the water mixed, if the whole water column drops just below the freezing point, ice can form around tiny particles; this type of ice is called frazil. Sometimes frazil gets transported to the river bottom and attaches there, forming what's known as anchor ice. If the water keeps losing heat to colder air, these and other kinds of ice can accumulate horizontally and vertically, eventually covering the river and perhaps filling much of its depth.Ice may also be carried along by the current, particularly after warming temperatures break up a solid ice cover. If these ice floes get blocked by natural or human-made structures, ice jams can occur. Ice jams can block a river's flow, leading possibly to upstream flooding. And when an ice jam eventually breaks, it can suddenly release large amounts of water and ice, causing possible hazards downstream. Thanks to Blacksburg friends for recording the New Year's Day New River wade-in. Thanks also to The Steel Wheels for permission to use this week's music, and we close with about 15 more seconds of “Waters Edge.” MUSIC - ~16 sec – Lyrics: “Mama, oh mama, it was out by the water's edge.” SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT ICE IN FLOWING WATERThe seriousness of the threats river ice can pose is highlighted in the following information from the National Weather Service, Chicago Forecast Office, “Volunteer River Ice Spotter Network,” online at https://www.weather.gov/lot/river_ice_spotter_network, accessed 2/17/22: “The National Weather Service (NWS) Chicago/Rockford, IL, office uses information from volunteer spotters along area rivers to monitor the development of river ice which may lead to flooding. Ice jams are often localized and may occur away from river gauges. River ice spotters share important information such as extent of ice cover, ice cover trends, and location of ice jams which is very important for issuing timely warnings. “River ice can be a serious problem during some winters. Chronic ice jam locations on the Rock, Fox, and Kankakee Rivers have up to a 1-in-2 chance of experiencing an ice jam in any given year, and almost a 1-in-3 chance of experiencing ice jam flooding in a given year.” The Chicago office is one of several NWS offices that seek river ice spotters in winter.SOURCES USED FOR AUDIO AND OFFERING MORE INFORMATION Kevin Ambrose, The Potomac River has a history of disastrous ice floes during a rapid thaw, Washington Post, January 10, 2018.

Congresswoman Nancy Mace grew up in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. She is the daughter of a retired Army General and a retired school teacher. Before being sworn into Congress, Nancy earned accolades as one of the most fiscally conservative members of the South Carolina General Assembly. She is also one of the most pro-conservation lawmakers in that state. She grew up in Goose Creek, South Carolina, and dropped out of high school at the age of 17. She immediately became a waitress at the Waffle House. After earning her high school diploma a few months later, she entered The Citadel (the Military College of South Carolina), where she was the school's first female to graduate from its corps of cadets in 1999. In 2004, Nancy earned a master's degree from the University of Georgia. She is the author of In the Company of Men: A Woman at The Citadel, published by Simon and Schuster in 2001. In 2008, she started her own company. Her background in business is in technology, PR, and marketing, and more recently, commercial real estate before coming to Congress. Amongst her other achievements and responsibilities, Nancy is a single mom of two children, aged 12 and 14. She also has two cats, Tyler and Tiger, and a puppy named Liberty. In this episode… Being the first female to graduate from The Citadel, Congresswoman Nancy Mace was taught a lot of valuable life lessons. She learned the importance of being courageous, confident, and believing in herself. Now she's here to empower women to speak up for themselves, for others, and to give a voice to the voiceless. Nancy advises fellow women leaders to never quit until they achieve what they want. Other people's opinions and perceptions should never define who they are or what they are capable of doing. If a woman doesn't believe in herself, then others will not believe in her and her abilities. Congresswoman Nancy Mace is Andrea Heuston's guest in this episode of the Lead Like A Woman Show where she talks about being the first female to graduate from The Citadel and how that impacted her work in Congress. Nancy also talks about her experience growing up in a military family, the lessons she learned from working as a waitress at Waffle House, and how she runs her own business. Stay tuned.

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of September 27, 2021. This episode is part of a series this fall on water connections to the human body and human biology. This week, we start with some mystery sounds. Have a listen for about 25 seconds, and see if you know the body system you can hear at work in all of these sounds. And here's a hint: it'll be a show of strength if you guess this. SOUNDS - ~23 sec If you guessed the muscular system, you're right! Walking, dribbling a basketball, lifting weights, and jumping rope all involve some of the over 600 skeletal muscles in the human body. Skeletal muscles, also called striated or voluntary muscles, are one of three muscle types in the body. The other two are smooth, or involuntary muscles, found in internal organs; and cardiac muscle in the heart. Whatever their location or function, muscles have several important connections to water, including the following six. First, water is a major component of muscles, making up over 70 percent of muscle mass. Second, cell volume, that is, the space within cells, is affected by the amount of water that cells contain, or the cells' hydration state. This is believed to be related to muscle strength and contraction capacity by affecting the shape and function of muscle proteins. Third, water is the medium containing all the dissolved biochemicals that the body needs to function, including those involved in muscular contraction and in nourishing muscle cells. Fourth, water is involved in reactions that release energy from the molecule ATP, and water is associated with the important energy-storage molecule glycogen. Fifth, water helps regulate body temperature, including the heat generated by muscular activity. And sixth, water helps lubricate moveable joints, the structures upon which skeletal muscles act to move parts of the body. Overall, water plays a significant role in muscle strength and function, and muscle, in turn, is an important area of water storage for the body. We close with some music whose title speaks of one of the most common uses of our muscles. Here's the closing 25 seconds of “Walk This Way For Awhile,” by the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Va.-based band, The Steel Wheels. MUSIC - ~25 sec – Lyrics: “…you walk this way for awhile; will you walk this way for awhile? I think you will, I know you still, I hope you will.” SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

IMAGE Structure of a representative human skeletal muscle. Illustration from National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute, SEER Training Module, “Muscular System/Structure of Skeletal Muscle,” online at https://training.seer.cancer.gov/anatomy/muscular/structure.html. EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT THE HUMAN MUSCULAR SYSTEM The following information is quoted from the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute, SEER Training Module, “Muscular System/Introduction” online at https://training.seer.cancer.gov/anatomy/muscular/. “The muscular system is composed of specialized cells called muscle fibers. Their predominant function is contractibility. Muscles, attached to bones or internal organs and blood vessels, are responsible for movement. Nearly all movement in the body is the result of muscle contraction. Exceptions to this are the action of cilia, the flagellum on sperm cells, and amoeboid movement of some white blood cells. “The integrated action of joints, bones, and skeletal muscles produces obvious movements such as walking and running. Skeletal muscles also produce more subtle movements that result in various facial expressions, eye movements, and respiration. “In addition to movement, muscle contraction also fulfills some other important functions in the body, such as posture, joint stability, and heat production. Posture, such as sitting and standing, is maintained as a result of muscle contraction. The skeletal muscles are continually making fine adjustments that hold the body in stationary positions. The tendons of many muscles extend over joints and in this way contribute to joint stability. This is particularly evident in the knee and shoulder joints, where muscle tendons are a major factor in stabilizing the joint. Heat production, to maintain body temperature, is an important by-product of muscle metabolism. Nearly 85 percent of the heat produced in the body is the result of muscle contraction.” SOURCES Used for Audio Ann Baggaley, ed., Human Body, Dorling Kindersley Publishing, New York, N.Y, 2001.

TODAY'S TEACHER: TIFFANIE KESSLER AT DEVON FOREST ELEMENTARYTiffanie Kessler is a 4th grade teacher at Devon Forest Elementary in Goose Creek, SC. She's been teaching for 12 years.Last year was rough on everyone – one of her student's lost their mom to Covid and she's had students suffer in their education because of the quarantine. She used a lot of supplies last year, but they couldn't share supplies, so once supplies went out, they stayed out. So she needs lots more supplies!Here's her wish list!Tiffanie also went on a personal journey and lost over 100 lbs. and became a runner and a hiker. She used her new found fitness to become one of the coaches for the running club for the 4th and 5th graders! Can you help her out and buy one or two items off her classroom wish list?We'll feature another teacher tomorrow – it could be you!

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 8-3-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of August 9, 2021. This revised episode from February 2015 is the last in a series of eight episodes this summer related to watersheds and river basins. MUSIC – ~12 sec – Lyrics: “Take me down to the riverside.” This week, that excerpt of “Riverside,” by the Rockingham County- and Harrisonburg, Va.-based band, The Steel Wheels, opens an episode giving musical tour of some of Virginia's major river watersheds. Have a listen for about 90 seconds to parts of six other songs, and see if you can guess the six Virginia watersheds being represented. Three may be obvious, but the other three may challenge your musical and hydrological knowledge. MUSIC – ~ 94 sec “Shenandoah” by Timothy Seaman – ~18 sec – instrumental. “Sandy Boys” by Sara Grey – ~11 sec – Lyrics: “Do come along, Sandy boys, waitin' for the bug-eye-boo.” “Banks of New River” by Whitetop Mt. Band – ~13 sec – Lyrics: “I'm sitting here on the banks of New River.” “Clinch Mountain Quickstep” by Timothy Seaman – ~14 sec – instrumental. “Rappahannock Running Free” by Bob Gramann – ~10 sec – Lyrics: “I love the Rappahannock and its waters running free; the rapids of this river, that's where I want to be.” “James River Blues” by Old Crow Medicine Show – ~10 sec – Lyrics: “James River blues.” “All Quiet on the Potomac” – ~18 sec – instrumental. You heard parts of “Shenandoah,” performed by Timothy Seaman; “Sandy Boys,” by Sara Grey, referring to the Big Sandy River; “On the Banks of New River,” by Whitetop Mountain Band; “Clinch Mountain Quickstep,” also by Timothy Seaman, selected here for its connection to the Clinch River; “Rappahannock Running Free,” by Bob Gramann; “James River Blues,” by Old Crow Medicine Show; and “All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight,” by Chloe Benner and Stewart Scales. The watersheds of these rivers are part of 14 major watersheds in Virginia, as identified by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. Wherever you are in the Commonwealth, you're in one of the those watersheds, as well as being—in turn—in one of the larger watersheds of the Chesapeake Bay, Albemarle Sound in North Carolina, the Atlantic Ocean, or the Gulf of Mexico.

Gary was born in Goose Creek, Texas to a middle-class military family. He became active in football, where he got a college scholarship to Oklahoma State University. He became interested in acting and eventually starring in small roles, and exploring his love of music on recordings for musicians such as Leon Russell. His first major role in his acting career was Kris Kristofferson’s manager in the blockbuster “A Star Is Born”. But his big breakthrough was playing the iconic Buddy Holly, in “The Buddy Holly Story”, where he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. Since then, Gary has been acting for 51 years, starred in over 170 films, and has been playing music since 1962. Along with his newfound fame, came excessive partying and drug use. Gary abused cocaine heavily, which led to overdoses and some of the lowest points of his life. On December 4, 1988, Busey was severely injured in a motorcycle accident in which he was not wearing a helmet. His skull was fractured, and he suffered permanent brain damage. His road to recovery was tough. Eventually, Gary needed help. In 1996, Busey publicly announced that he was a Christian. Busey cites the motorcycle accident, as well as a 1995 cocaine overdose, as events that strengthened his religious faith. During the filming of the second season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2008, Busey was referred to a psychiatrist on the show, Charles Sophy. Sophy suspected that Busey's brain injury has had a greater effect on him than realized. He described it as essentially weakening his mental "filters" and causing him to speak and act impulsively. In writing his book “Buseyisms”, Gary was recorded using a tape recorder, just saying what was on his mind, and what phrases worked for him in positive ways. For example, his ‘Buseyism’ for the word ‘Sober’ is “Son of A Bitch Everything’s Real” He says the best way to stay sober is to get out of your own way. Gary also shares some stories from some of his most famous roles and films, including Point Break, Rookie of The Year, Lethal Weapon, Under Seige & more.

“S” is for St. James Goose Creek Parish. A long rectangle extending northwestward from the Cooper River through modern Charleston, Berkeley, and Orangeburg Counties, St. James Goose Creek was one of the ten original parishes created by the Church Act of 1706. By 1672 a group of settlers from Barbados had settled with their enslaved property on Goose Creek, a meandering tributary of the Cooper River. The “Goose Creek Men” were experienced colonists and accomplished planters and they quickly came to dominate the colony both politically and economically. Colonial Goose Creek was the most prosperous and populous community outside Charleston, attributes that are reflected in its ornate parish church that was completed in 1719. With the abolition of the parish system in 1865, St. James Goose Creek Parish became a part of Berkeley County.

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of April 12, 2021. This revised episode from April 2013 is part of a series this year of spring-related episodes. MUSIC – ~ 18 sec – Lyrics: “I went outside, the rain fallin’ on the branches bare. And I smiled, ‘cause I could feel a change in the air.” That’s part of “The Coming Spring,” on Andrew VanNorstand’s 2019 album, “That We Could Find a Way to Be,” featuring Kailyn Wright on vocals. It opens an episode about the feathered “changes in the air” that take place each spring in Virginia. We start with a series of mystery sounds. Have a listen for about 15 seconds, and see if you can guess what’s making these three different high-pitched songs, each heard just once. And here’s a hint: These small creatures make big journeys, twice a year.SOUNDS - ~12 sec If you guessed warblers, you’re right! And if you’re an experienced birder, you may have recognized the songs of a Bay-breasted Warbler, Palm Warbler, and Tennessee Warbler. These three species breed in Canada and the northern United States, but they winter in Central and South America, and they’re among the birds that may pass through Virginia during spring or fall migration. Virginia’s location along the Atlantic coast and Chesapeake Bay allows Commonwealth birders to have a chance to see songbirds, waterfowl, and birds of prey that migrate along the broad, eastern North American route known as the Atlantic Flyway, one of four main migratory routes on this continent. For example, while about 100 bird species breed in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, over 200 species have been identified there, particularly during the spring migration from April to June. The Colorado-based organization Environment for the Americas, which has helped coordinate an annual World Migratory Bird Day, has called bird migration, quote, “one of the most important and spectacular events in the Americas.” Virginia’s part of that spectacle, every spring and fall. Thanks to Lang Elliott for permission to use the three warbler species sounds, from the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs. Thanks also to Andrew VanNorstrand for permission to use part of “The Coming Spring.” We close with part of another song, whose title captures how many people may feel about spring’s arrival after a long winter. Here’s about 20 seconds of “At Long Last,” by the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, Va.-based band, The Steel Wheels, from their 2011 album, “Live at Goose Creek.” MUSIC – ~ 22 sec – instrumental SHIP’S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech’s College of Natural Resources and Environment.

Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this show. In Blacksburg, I’m Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.
