ROCK HILL, S.C., Oct. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 15th, open enrollment for Medicare will begin. Thousands of South Carolinians will once again face the challenge of finding the right Medicare coverage, including the need to decide between Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans. While the primary focus will be on medical and prescription coverage, it is important not to ignore the potential impact of dental coverage.

Continue Reading

Most Medicare participants fail to understand Medicare does not include routine, preventive dental procedures that are critical to longevity and overall health. Currently, Medicare benefits only apply to surgical dental procedures carried out in hospitals. As a result, seniors must either pay for dental services completely out-of-pocket or try to find a Medicare supplement that provides high-quality, affordable and accessible dental care.

Unfortunately, this is extremely difficult. Most Medicare dental supplements are low-cost and poorly designed. In addition, these plans have very limited networks of inexperienced dentists.

"We know the problems seniors face, which is why we created our VIP Smile Club," commented Dr. Paul Coombs at Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry of Rock Hill. He continued, "Many struggle to find experienced and knowledgeable dentists to provide the care they need at a reasonable rate. Our VIP Smile Club offers the best of both worlds – friendly, personalized care at a consistent, monthly fee."

Furthermore, the negative impact of poor dental care on the overall health of seniors can be significant. A range of statistics tell the story:

While dental membership plans, the common term for the VIP Smile Club, have existed for more than 20 years, most patients are unaware of this option. At the same time, ease of use and enrollment are two of the most significant benefits. Other facts to know about the VIP Smile Club at Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry of Rock Hill include:

As seniors consider the benefits of the VIP Smile Club or membership plans in general, it is important to keep a couple of dates in mind. Open enrollment for Medicare starts on October 15, 2021, and ends December 7, 2021. This is the time to drop an existing dental supplement that is not working and to enroll in a better form of coverage. Families interested in learning more should feel free to contact Coombs & Ross Family Dentistry in Rock Hill via their website or by calling 803-592-6201.

ROCK HILL, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – The art scene in Rock Hill is about to get even bigger as world-renowned artist, Shepard Fairey comes to town.

According to leaders with the city of Rock Hill, Fairey plans to pain a large-scale mural on a wall located at 153 East White Street in downtown Rock Hill.

You may see him in action October 16th through the 19th.

This mural will add to Rock Hill’s Mural Mile Project.

While Fairey is in town, 60 art pieces have been chosen for public display and sale for a limited time.

Those interested can view the air October 17th through October 31st, Wednesdays through Sundays at the same location from 4 PM until 8 PM.

To learn more about Shepard Fairey visit: www.obeygiant.com and watch CN2 News Monday, October 18th at 6 PM.

“I’m very excited to paint a mural and exhibit my art in Rock Hill because I grew up spending a lot of time with family in the city and surrounding countryside,” said Shepard Fairey. “My mural celebrates various aspects of Rock Hill’s industrial history while also sharing my philosophy of open-mindedness, creativity, and adaptive disruption to progress into the future. I look forward to a great dialogue with the people of Rock Hill,” Fairey said.

“This project is a very important step in the further development of the “Mural Mile” in Rock Hill. The “Mural Mile” stresses the need to make art accessible, with murals on multiple buildings throughout the historic Old Town area. “We are so excited that an international artist of Shepard Fairey’s caliber has chosen to share his work with our Rock Hill community,” says Cathy Murphy, Downtown Development Manager for the City of Rock Hill. “This endeavor will truly bring attention and credence to our ‘Mural Mile’ project being completed over the next few years.”

A line of dozens of Rock Hill residents and employees extended far in front of the city’s Sports and Event Center early Thursday morning. Several had a steamy coffee in hand. Most made small-talk as the line slowly funneled inside.

The residents, dressed in ties and heels, weren’t there for a sports event. They were there for the mayor’s once-every-three-years key influencer breakfast.

“It’s going to be a great day,” Mayor John Gettys told those at the breakfast.

Inside, the line continued around a table covered in pastries and coffee. The small-talk carried on as people settled around several circular tables.

The breakfast, which drew about 100 people, provided a chance for city employees and residents to discuss Rock Hill’s future and honor influential residents who’ve had an impact on the city.

Those who attended the two-hour breakfast were tasked with answering the question of the morning — What makes Rock Hill, Rock Hill?

On a stage at the front of the room, Gettys spoke with the four influencers who would be recognized.

Gettys sat on the stage in an armchair flanked by Bishop Herb Crump and Rev. Steve Hogg.

The two pastors met in 2004 when Freedom Temple Ministries, founded by Crump, was destroyed by fire. As a result, First Baptist Church, led by Hogg, sold its Main Street building to Crump’s congregation.

“Rock Hill is a place that’s not a perfect city, but it’s a progressive city,” Crump, from New York, said. “What a better story of unity, progression and a willingness to embrace differences than a Kentucky pastor and a New York pastor working together to make what I think we both believe to be one of the most recognizable transactions in the history of the city on Main Street?”

Crump said in order for the city to continue moving forward in establishing its own identity, Rock Hill leaders should not shy away from acknowledging the city’s historic and present racial and social injustices.

“In order for us to move forward, we have to continue in the efforts that were started by the previous administration and continued by this current administration of addressing real issues and not sugar-coating our efforts of addressing real issues affecting each and every one of us.”

The hundred in the crowd clapped. Some stood.

Hogg said, as the city continues to experience its immense growth, he urged city officials to be aware that parts of the city will not be equally impacted.

“We need to think about the people who are displaced as we grow,” he said.

“Absolutely!” Rock Hill NAACP President Norma Gray, who sat in front of the stage, said.

Dawn Johnson, who has served as chair of the city’s Economic Development Corporation, said she is doing exactly that.

During the breakfast, Johnson, founder of Rock Hill’s Black Economic Leadership League, discussed her efforts to bring more business development to the south side of Rock Hill.

“How can we do something uniquely different for this side of town, but have the same quality, growth, opportunities and jobs?” Johnson said.

Clinton College President Lester McCorn also is working to make sure the south side of the city sees the same development as the rest of the city. Thursday, he highlighted the Clinton ConNEXTion Action Plan, a partnership between the city and community partners, to bring more jobs, housing and businesses to historic Rock Hill neighborhoods.

The plan, established earlier this year, works to ensure those in the historic area in and around Clinton College, one of South Carolina’s eight historically black colleges and universities, have equitable access to resources and opportunities.

“HBCU’s are often in neighborhoods that are challenging, distressed,” McCorn said. “HBCUs have wonderful opportunities if they are positioned to bring economic and community development to those neighborhoods and lift them up.”

The plan has further established Clinton College as an essential aspect of the city, McCorn said.

“Not only is Clinton College punching far above her weight, Clinton College is literally changing lives,” he said.

Clinton ConNEXTion has already made an impact, McCorn pointed out.

He highlighted the city’s effort to create a new tax increment financing district in the south side of Rock Hill. The city is seeking $225 million for its south side redevelopment plan — as part of Clinton ConNEXTion.

“If we want to be ‘Rock Hill For All,’ we have to make an extra effort to make sure that happens because absent that vigilance and accountability does not bring about equality,” McCorn said.

The funds would go to improvements to the area’s streets, utilities, storm water and assist with property acquisition.

York County Council will discuss the proposed TIF during its Oct. 4 meeting. Rock Hill will hold a public hearing on the TIF on Oct. 11.

“This is the perfect moment,” McCorn said. “The stars are aligning in Rock Hill. This is our moment.”

The crowd clapped.

“I think that is our story in Rock Hill now,” Gettys said at the end of the breakfast. “It’s an explosion of opportunity and an explosion of colors … all the development, people that are coming in, engagement from so many that haven’t engaged before, so that really is our charge as we leave here today.”

High-end townhomes and new homes near the Catawba River are the next part of residential growth in Rock Hill.

The city planning commission met Tuesday night. In addition to mostly industrial projects covering about 2,500 acres along I-77, the commission heard current and coming plans for homes.

Integrity Development Group applied to annex and rezone 23 acres along West Main Street and Heckle Boulevard. The property has frontage on both roads, but doesn’t include their intersection. The site is adjacent to Herlong Ridge community, just south of Huntington.

Plans include 90 new townhomes. The land is largely wooded now, with one home on a parcel. Access would come off Main, via a new public road.

“This would be a new public street that would come in and extend all the way down, with on-street parking on both sides,” said City Planner Dennis Fields.

Most of the frontage along Heckle sits in or near floodplains.

“There would be a lot of areas that they would not be able to disturb,” Fields said.

Lennar Homes would build the project. Johnnie Hastings with developer Integrity Development Group said the new sites won’t be typical townhomes.

“These are going to be three-story townhomes,” Hastings said. “They will start at a purchase price of $350,000. They are two-car garage.”

Canopy Realtor Association collects home sale data in the Charlotte and surrounding regions. Through August, the more than 1,300 closed sales this year in Rock Hill averaged $285,000.

There will be a fence and landscape buffers around the property. Hastings said initial thoughts were for 120 townhomes, but his group settled on 90 units to allow the alleyways and other features required by the city.

Rock Hill City Council will hear the project as early as this month, and will have final say on the annexation.

The new home portion of Marvell is ready to move forward, too. The community at 2114 Riverchase Boulevard will be a mix of boutique apartments and homes along the Catawba River. The entire property was zoned a year ago to allow those uses. The city approved site plans for the apartments, a first phase that involves the reconfiguration of Riverchase Boulevard, in September.

Now the Charlotte-based property owner is ready for the home portion. It will have 69 lots on 19 acres.

Another project will have to wait a bit longer. The planning commission had an application for property at Laurel Creek Drive and Twin Lakes Road on its October agenda, but it was deferred until November. CH Acquisitions has almost 32 acres there and plans to annex and rezone the property into a master planned development.

Hundreds more homes and townhomes are in the York County development pipeline, though many of them may wait just a little longer before construction.

The county planning commission meets Monday night. New residential projects in Fort Mill, Lake Wylie and western York County come up for decisions.

Here’s a look at the new projects proposed thus far:

▪ Lennar Carolinas wants to build another 118 townhomes in Fort Mill. The 20-acre property at S.C. 160 West and Lighthouse Avenue is just south of the North Carolina state line.

Fort Thrill RV Park is the owner. Two parcels there are used now as a campground and RV park. A stream runs through the site. One parcel includes a small pond.

A submitted site plan shows the main access off S.C. 160 West. New roads run into three cul-de-sacs, one of them a connection to neighboring property along Lighthouse. Some townhomes would back up to properties on Jefferson Place and Ruth Lee Court.

▪ Almost 400 new Lake Wylie homes are up, again, for an extension. Walton Development asked for and received approval for the Meriway Pointe subdivision in 2015. Since 2017, Walton has asked for and received a one-year extension each year to build the project. The one requested now would run through Oct. 12, 2022.

Original plans involved 449 new home lots on 213 acres. Walton went through mediation with the county. An agreement reached put the new number at 399 homes. Meriway Pointe is on the west side of Charlotte Highway, just south of the Three Points intersection of S.C. 49, 274 and 557. It runs along Crowders Creek.

Vested rights are given for construction projects when approved by the county. They typically last two years. Developers can come back and requests extensions. Vested rights give a time period to begin and complete construction. Longer vested rights periods can be negotiated with the county through development agreements.

A Sept. 28 letter from Walton Development to county officials outlined the cause for delays thus far:

“Due to the complex nature of the development process, continued land use regulation changes in the county, current market conditions, discovery of an eagles nest on the property, we are still working through the details of this project to allow us to move forward with construction,” it reads.

The developer has put $1.5 million into the project already, according to the letter.

▪ The Heartland Acres subdivision is a planned 29 homes on 55 acres. It’s in the Ebenezer area of western York County, off Balmoral Drive. Heartland Acres would extend from the existing Wellington Heights subdivision on Adnah Church Road.

A site plan shows two entrances off Balmoral, onto an extended cul-de-sac. Home sites would be an acre or more each.

▪ Rock Hill Charm Development applied to put 13 new homes on 48 acres for the Royal Pine subdivision. The site is on Glasscock Road, near its intersection with Old Friendship Road in the Catawba area. The site is north of Glasscock, south of the Springwinds subdivision. Lots would be at least an acre each.
