N NEWS DOTTIE’S SET UP AN OUTDOOR VACCINE STATION AT ITS JAMES ISLAND PHARMACY Ruta Smith

Get the Stick

Locals line up to receive vaccinations, supplies remain limited BY SKYLER BALDWIN

South Carolina entered phase 1B of its vaccine distribution on March 8, as thousands of vaccine doses bound for the Palmetto State meant some healing was on the way after the year-long pandemic. But, the bumpy rollout that followed boils down to supply, medical professionals say. “We’ve been anxiously awaiting the vaccine for months,” said Dottie’s Pharmacy co-owner Scott Farfone. “And, we didn’t get allotted enough, but there’s a nationwide shortage. There’s only so much to go around.” Dottie’s reached maximum registration for its 300 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine two days before the eligibility rules were set to change. Co-owner Dottie Farfone said she doesn’t think they will be getting any more either, due to the short supply and other issues. “The major caveat right now is that we are working through a waiting list from phase

1A of about 25,000 people,” said Heather Woolwine, public affairs director at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. “So other than a few thousand phase 1B doses for teachers that we did last week in partnership with Charleston County School District, we are not scheduling new phase 1B patients at this time.” The weight of the challenges doesn’t just fall on those trying to get their vaccines. “The toughest thing is having to tell people we don’t have any more,” Scott Farfone said. “It’s just really frustrating to turn people away and tell them we don’t have any vaccines. People are anxious. Some understand, and some are angry, and, they show that. But, we all just have to be patient. It’s been just as frustrating for us as health providers.” Dottie’s isn’t the only local pharmacy that’s run into shortage-caused problems. “It’s certainly not as easy as we would

like,” said Delta Pharmacy pharmacist Jennifer Ogburn. “We are trying to utilize an online scheduling system and release appointments as we know we have available vaccines. Those appointments fill up within an hour.” Short supply hasn’t been the only hurdle to jump over for local distribution. Scheduling and online challenges have plagued those giving the stick since the initial rollout. And when it comes to smaller distribution sites, limited staffing is taken into consideration just as much as limited supply. “We are trying not to overwork our staff, obviously,” Ogburn said. “This is an additional burden on top of our normal activities and volume. We are trying to do a reasonable amount, and it’s been a great amount so far, but we can’t overwork ourselves.” For smaller pharmacies or care providers, it’s simply a matter of space. “We aren’t in a large facility like a hospital where we can spread people out,” Ogburn said. “We have a couple who just received the vaccine, and now, they have to wait 15 minutes, so we can only schedule people every 15 minutes or so at the earliest.” Dottie’s hasn’t had the same software

“People are anxious. Some understand, and some are angry, and, they show that. But, we all just have to be patient. It’s been just as frustrating for us as health providers.” —Dottie’s Pharmacy co-owner Scott Farfone

troubles that pharmacy chains like Walgreens have been reporting. “We actually purchased a state-of-the-art scheduling system,” Dottie Farfone said. “We’ve been doing COVID testing since September using online platforms. We knew we wanted something that was going to be super easy, and after doing it this week, we could probably do triple the volume because we’ve gotten it down so quickly.” Despite the rocky start, providers have said being able to give the vaccine has been a rewarding process. “There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the joy on people’s faces after they get the vaccine,” Scott Farfone said.

How to get your vaccine 1

Ensure you’re eligible for the vaccine under either phase 1A or 1B of South Carolina’s rollout. Health care workers, those age 55 and up, those of increased risk for severe symptoms, frontline workers, caregivers for at-risk children and more are eligible.

2

Make an appointment with a vaccine provider to guarantee your spot on the list. Many providers are no longer accepting new appointments, but online resources like DHEC’s vaccine locator can help you find a provider: vaxlocator.dhec.sc.gov. If you’re not having any luck, check the websites of local pharmacies near you. Some may be taking names for waiting lists.

3

If you need to make two appointments (the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines both require two shots), try to schedule the second shot at the same place.

4

If you need to reschedule, remember to cancel your initial appointment to make room for someone else.

NOTE: DHEC vaccine FAQ, and Phase 1A and 1B guidance can be found at scdhec.gov. The federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the U.S., and providers can be reimbursed for vaccine administration fees by the patient’s public or private insurance company or by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.

More than 2.7 million South Carolinians found themselves medically eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine last week, only to find that getting an appointment for that shot in the arm has proven difficult.

AFRICAN AMERICAN CEMETERIES RESTORATION PROJECT LAUNCHING IN CHARLESTON

The African American Cemeteries Restoration Project launched Saturday morning with a press conference at the cemeteries for Morris Street Baptist Church and Union Baptist Church, located near the intersection of Oceanic and Mechanic streets. The established Cemeteries Restoration Fund, to be maintained by the Gullah Society, will support the restoration of historically significant African American burial grounds in the Lowcountry. “This project is central to the core of the mission of the Gullah society to preserve African American burial grounds,” said Gullah Society President Johanna MartinCarrington. “The Gullah Society has done very impressive work in this mission, yet there is still so much work to be done.” Local genealogist and historian Grant Mishoe announced during the conference the discovery of two gravestones belonging to Pompey Grant and Samual Ferguson, two former slaves who served in the U.S. Colored Troops, established in 1863 by the War Department. “They both would join the ranks of over 178,000 former enslaved men and freedman to create the U.S. Colored Troops,” said genealogist and historian Grant Mishoe. “These men would serve in 175 regiments, making up an approximate one-tenth of the entire union army.” The graves were discovered in a line of trees just behind the podium at the conference near the Morris Street Baptist Church and Union Baptist Church cemeteries. It is presumed their families were also buried there, Mishoe said. —Skyler Baldwin

EXPANDED OVERDOSE REVERSAL DRUG DISTRIBUTION APPROVED BY SENATE

4

A proposal that would require opioid prescribers to also prescribe an overdose reversal medication was approved by the South Carolina Senate last Wednesday. Supporters say Senate Bill 571 would expand availability of the emergency medication naloxone, commonly called Narcan. The bill is in part a response to the recent rise in overdoses in the Palmetto State before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The increase reinforces what health advocates are calling a critical need to expand access to overdose reversal medications for at-risk patients. “The opioid crisis has reached an epidemic level across the country and South

Carolina has not been immune from seeing increased deaths due to opioid addiction. This bill, when passed, will save lives,” S.C. Sen. Katrina Shealy, R-Lexington, said in a press release. Overdoses in the state remained 50% higher in 2020 than the same time in 2019, according to data from the S.C. Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services. In May 2020 alone, emergency personnel responded to 915 suspected opioid overdoses in South Carolina — the highest monthly number ever recorded, a press release said. “South Carolina’s commitment to eradicating the opioid epidemic has been

steadfast, but there’s more work to do,” S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster said in a press release. “Increasing access to these lifesaving therapeutics would be an important step in the right direction, and I hope to soon have the opportunity to sign this legislation into law.” The bill’s House equivalent, H.3366, has been referred to the House Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee. The two bills align with recent actions that the surgeon general, CDC and FDA have taken to expand access to and use of naloxone, according to a press release. —Skyler Baldwin

LGBTQ, OTHER PROTECTIONS STRIPPED FROM PROPOSED SC HATE CRIME BILL

Advocates worry that South Carolina’s LGBTQ community may not be protected by a proposed hate crime law after a Republican-controlled subcommittee stripped provisions that would strengthen penalties for crimes committed because of gender and sexual orientation. As originally proposed, H.3620 spells out protections for people victimized because of their “race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, or physical or mental disability.” A House subcommittee unanimously approved an amendment Thursday that removed language related to sexual orientation, creed, gender, age and ancestry. S.C. Rep. Chris Murphy, R-Dorchester, told a House Judiciary subcommittee the amendment was designed to give the bill a better chance of passing the House before the April 8 deadline to be considered in the Senate. “I think this amendment will go a long way to alleviating a lot of the concerns of our membership,” Murphy said, not referring to any specific concerns. Thursday’s move came as lawmakers in the House and Senate consider prohibitions on transgender youth participation in school sports and penalties for doctors who provide some medical care for transgender minors. The bill’s chief sponsor, S.C. Rep. Wendell Gilliard, D-Charleston, told The Post and Courier seeing the bill advanced without protections, was “bittersweet.” FBI statistics show around 17% of hate crimes committed in South Carolina in 2019 were motivated by sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, three of the protected classes removed with Murphy’s amendment Thursday. The bill heads to the full House Judiciary Committee next, where members could choose to reinstate its original language. Subcommittee members explained that a recent U.S. Supreme Court opinion in an employment discrimination case could mean the bill’s new language will be interpreted to protect sexual orientation or gender identity. But relying on a judge’s interpretation of a new South Carolina law is not enough, one leading local LGBTQ advocate said. “It’s not an appropriate assumption to make that the Bostock [Supreme Court] case would apply to this law,” said Chase Glenn, the executive director of the Alliance for Full Acceptance. “I don’t want to be in a position where I’m expected to trust that S.C. courts (and law enforcement, for that matter) are going to interpret that way.” South Carolina is one of three states in the U.S. without a law that adds penalties for crimes motivated by hate. Over the past year, a bipartisan group of lawmakers and statewide business groups like the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce have called for leaders to pass a hate crime law. —Sam Spence

“very, very skeptical” —S.C. Rep. Micah Caskey, R-Lexington, said people should be skeptical of efforts by energy companies to maintain the status quo as Dominion Energy reportedly pushes back on some members of the public who filed to speak at a hearing that could raise solar energy prices.

One man told police that while riding his moped, an unknown man on the sidewalk whipped out a knife and said, “You’re writing checks you can’t cash, and I’ll cash it for you.” The would-be victim reportedly drew his own knife and said, “Let’s do this.” Life really is an action movie.

While completing a Breathalyzer test, a suspect admitted to having had a “couple of beers at a friend’s place” before hopping behind the wheel. The report did not mention the person weighed 30 pounds, but they blew a .26, so they couldn’t have weighed much more. A downtown man found himself the victim of the greatest car thief in Charleston, as they made off with his car after he left it in a parking garage with an empty fuel tank. He returned with a gas can and found the car missing. While breaking up a physical altercation outside of a downtown bar, police used pepper spray and shouted, “Move away.” One of the men involved reportedly ran, which to be fair, is exactly what police told him to do.

Police confronted a man who they said smelled of marijuana. The man explained he was waiting for his cousin to get out of school so they could have a “smoke sesh.” At least they care about education. Officers arrested a woman in West Ashley after a routine traffic stop led to the discovery of eight unpaid violations. Crime always catches up to you, even when you’re doing 85 in a 60. A man reported that an unknown silver truck wouldn’t allow him to merge onto Highway 17 leaving Mount Pleasant, and that the truck sped ahead of his vehicle and brake-checked him. We could fill this entire page with stories of how terrible driving in Charleston is, but we’ll leave it at this.

One handgun was stolen from a downtown man’s apartment, and another was stolen from a vehicle parked downtown. A manager at a downtown arts and crafts store reported a suspected theft of a can of paint. They claim a shopper put the paint into their buggy, but when they checked out, it was nowhere to be found. No theft could be seen on security tapes, and the can was not found anywhere else in the store. Drug dealers may have found a new vehicle of choice in Charleston, as two separate reports of criminal drug possession included a description of a black Hyundai Genesis. Way better choice than the Charger — the Hyundais are turbocharged!

Rays and Rates SC must commit to renewable energy, reject solar rate increase

T  

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 03.17.2021

he cost to produce solar energy is getting cheaper, but Dominion Energy wants to make it more expensive for normal consumers who want to add renewable solar power. The South Carolina Public Service Commission (PSC) must reject Dominion’s proposed solar net metering rate changes this month. It’s sad, but in recent years, South Carolina power companies have done absolutely nothing to earn the trust of local residents. SCE&G hiked electricity rates over and over to raise billions for the doomed expansion of the V.C. Summer nuclear plant, leaving its customers holding the bag. Now comes its successor, Dominion, which knows that solar power is less profitable for it and that its proposed changes would raise prices for customers who want to get off the grid with solar and buy less of Dominion’s electricity. The utility claims it is requesting the change to make sure solar customers still cover their share of costs for maintaining the company’s infrastructure. Solar customers would still be able to sell excess power back to Dominion under the proposed arrangement, but with added fees. One critic testified that added charges would decrease the value of residential solar by 55%. Solar hardware vendors in the state say the market for their products could dry up if new costs eat into consumers’ returns on investments. Duke Energy worked with environmental groups to craft its own solar net-metering plan for its S.C. customers. Dominion has chosen to roll the dice with state regulators. Dominion must have PSC approval for a solar rate structure by May 31 as part of the 2019 Energy Freedom Act passed in the wake of the V.C. Summer boondoggle. S.C. Sen. Tom Davis of Beaufort, the libertarian-leaning author of the law who is no fan of overregulation, did not mince words about the intent of the new rules in 2019.

“It is a first and important step away from the energyproduction monopolies that have saddled South Carolinians with some of the highest electricity bills in the nation, and toward real competition through an open market of many buyers and many sellers that will provide downward pressure on the cost of producing energy,” Davis wrote. Not only does Dominion’s proposal appear to be a shameless cash grab, it flies in the face of the reality of technological innovation, climate change and South Carolina regulators’ purported prioritization of renewable energy sources. The price of solar generation has dropped 45% over the past decade, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. South Carolina was the seventh-highest solargenerating state in the nation last year and is poised to double in size again over the next five years — if solar power remains affordable for consumers. Another Statehouse critic of Dominion said consumers should be wary of the company’s efforts to maintain the status quo. “You should be very skeptical of anything that looks like an institutional effort to cement its legacy practices in the midst of a shift in the power generation paradigm — very, very skeptical,” S.C. Rep. Micah Caskey, R-Lexington, told The State on March 12. Three months ago, public service commissioners unanimously rejected Dominion’s proposed renewable energy plan that was decried by conservation attorneys as a “‘do-nothing’ plan” because it did not consider possible options, leaning heavily on fossil fuel energy. Dominion’s current proposal is just as short-sighted and blind to reality. South Carolina regulators must follow their own principles and deny Dominion’s proposed solar net-metering plan.

A FEW WORDS | BY ANDY BRACK

Pay What? Why state budget reporting matters Media have gotten so streamlined that only one newspaper wrote a story last week when the S.C. House Ways and Means Committee approved a $9.8 billion budget. That’s billion with a “B.” And that “B” means that it matters. But without reporters meticulously covering what’s going on with your state tax dollars throughout the whole process — and not just at the end when all of the deals have been cut — then there’s a better likelihood that someone will stick a pet project or two in the budget. “When every daily newspaper had a Columbia bureau, competition was fierce,” recalled Sid Gaulden of West Columbia, who staffed a bureau with me years ago. “Everyone wanted to beat everyone else on just about every story — big or small. Unfortunately with the demise of The State, coupled with the lack of bureaus from Spartanburg, Greenville and even Myrtle Beach, no longer does that competition exist.” (Note: The State was the newspaper that wrote the 2021 budget story!) It’s a sad state of media affairs, but it should be expected as newspapers cut budgets and people to cover the Statehouse. There may be another reason too — a new breed of editor has probably bought into a long-held belief that people don’t care about stories with numbers in them, which is something also perpetuated by some lazy reporters who don’t like math.

What’s even more disconcerting about the whole mess is press officials across the country celebrate Sunshine Week starting March 14 to pay tribute to the importance of free public information at a time most outlets aren’t covering the budget, one of the biggest and more important bits of free information there is. In the old days of 30 years ago, a phalanx of reporters covered the Statehouse with a thirst for breaking news and beating the other guy. There were budget stories all over the place. Yes, they were hard to put together and often, there seemed to be no need for them. But it was important to get legislators on the record to make sure they had the people’s interest at stake. Budget-related stories can have impact. Remember when cell phones were all the rage? It was a status symbol for someone to have a car phone or a bag phone. After churning out dozens of Freedom of Information requests to state agencies, it was easy to spot abuse — officials who were spending thousands of state dollars on cell phones, including one guy who spent beaucoup state dollars calling his wife many nights on long drives to his home. “While I can’t claim to have inside knowledge, I get a strong impression the TV stations here are not staffing legislative coverage on a sustained basis,” said retired TV reporter Jack Kuenzie of Columbia. “Management

had zero interest in process/policy stories with sound from suits. Bad TV.” Gary Karr, who worked for The Greenville News before going to the AP, said he recalled sitting in the House Ways and Means committee room for hours as lawmakers plowed through the various departments. “Budgets are the main way governments express their priorities, so it’s sad to see that the day-in day-out government process stories get such short shrift,” Karr said. Former Associated Press reporter Trip DuBard enjoyed the “treasure hunt (that) it was to find the baloney in the budget.” At one point, two senior Democratic state Senate budget writers, both of whom are dead, blocked DuBard from attending a budget subcommittee meeting. “When it was finally released, there was — as I remember — a tax increase [Sen. James] Waddell had slipped in ... Robert Ariail had a great cartoon showing Waddell and [Sen. Jack] Lindsey feeding the taxpayer into a sausage-making machine. The result was that they had to back down and retract the tax increase.” Budget stories matter. Let’s demand more so we can all follow the money. Andy Brack is publisher of Charleston City Paper.

outh Carolina has 28 micro-distilleries, none of which can serve customers after 7 p.m. or on Sundays, like breweries and wineries can. In fact, these small businesses can only sell their own brands of liquor. Food and cold beer are out of the question, too. The puzzling restrictions faced by the state’s distilleries, which say they support 20,000 South Carolina jobs, are causing even more damage to a group that shifted operations to produce much-needed hand sanitizer as sales slowed to a trickle during the pandemic. But, a bipartisan bill sponsored by nearly 30 state lawmakers could address what spirits industry leaders say is a fundamental issue of fairness. “When we looked at parity, and that’s the main thing we are looking at is partial parity with the breweries, most legislators that we’ve talked to have said, ‘That makes sense,’” said High Wire Distilling owner Scott Blackwell. “(Distilleries) are great for the community, they employ people, and are places where a lot of people take their dog and kids. The breweries get a lot more locals because of the friendliness of the laws. Without tourists in this town, it’s crushing.” Blackwell serves as president of the South Carolina Distillers Guild, a 3-year-old group of volunteers that’s been fighting for parity since its inception — the pandemic made its mission more urgent, Blackwell said. High Wire, Charleston Distilling Co., Twelve 33 Distillery, Palmetto Distillery, Six & Twenty and Burnt Church Distillery are leading the charge to get the S.C. MicroDistillers Parity Act, H.3769, signed into law by this summer. continued on page 10

tially closes the gap.” State Rep. Wendell Gilliard, D-Charleston, is hopeful one of the bills will pass by the April 10 deadline to be considered by the other chamber. “I believe that competitiveness is always good for business, and to me, that makes all those types of businesses competitive. It’s a win win situation, and I think it’s coming at the right time,” Gilliard told the City Paper. The bill’s chief sponsor in the House, S.C. Rep. Leon Stavrinakis, D-Charleston, did not respond to requests for comment. According to the latest statistics from the S.C. Brewers Guild, the number of South Carolina breweries has more than tripled since 2013, meaning more production, distribution and revenue for brewers and distributors. Still, Bennett knows the bill will face opposition from liquor distributors, who think the relaxed laws will dip into their margins. He hopes these folks will realize that making distilleries more viable businesses will help the industry as a whole. “We have some pretty strong pushback from people participating in the three-tier system,” said Bennett, referring to the state’s system that requires alcohol distributors to serve as middlemen between wholesalers and retail businesses. “The beer distributors are probably in agreement that it’s helped their industry. We’ve got a good story to tell.”

off-premises consumption from three bottles to 9 liters

Why it matters

continued from page 8 The Distillers Guild didn’t include everything on its wish list in the new bill, filed in the state House and Senate, but it does address many of the limitations placed on the business. Currently, South Carolina distilleries are treated like liquor stores, meaning hours of operation are limited to 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. “We’d like to be open on Sundays and stay open a little later — another hour or so,” said Charleston Distilling Co. owner Steve Heilman, who serves as the Guild’s treasurer. “Not too many people want to go drinking at 9 a.m.” Although several local distillers also want to extend bottle-sale hours and push for other items like self distribution, Blackwell said, the Distillers Guild came up with “realistic” requests in the bill. The big-ticket items include:

• Expand hours to seven days a week, but follow Sunday retail sales restrictions

• Allow outside beer and wine for on-premise consumption

• Increase tasting limit from 3 ounces to 4.5 ounces

• Allow tastings to occur in tasting rooms,

Republican Sean Bennett, the Senate bill’s lead sponsor, helped S.C. breweries pass the so-called Stone and Pint bills, which increased the amount of beer breweries could sell and patrons could consume onsite. Bennett started working with the distilleries toward the end of 2020, before filing the bill in January, he BENNETT told the City Paper. “I’m really relatively hopeful, mainly because we’re not trying to do anything different. We’re really just trying to bring the micro-distilleries to the same level of parity with the breweries,” Bennett said. “As an effective advoKIMPSON cate for an industry that has a significant footprint in Charleston and North Charleston, my job is to break down the arcane barriers that, in my view, no longer need to exist,” said S.C.

artifacts CHARLESTON ARTIST ON NEW GROUND WITH $ 69M AUCTION

Building Blocks

A Charleston-based digital artist who goes by Beeple became one of the most commercially successful living artists ever on Thursday, when a mosaic of his digital artwork sold for $69.3 million at Christie’s auction house. But while the art created by Mike Winkelmann is provocative and complex, the way it was sold is what’s gotten the most attention. Beeple’s “Everydays: The First 5,000 Days,” was sold as a non-fungible token (NFT), a relatively new approach to selling digital goods that certifies ownership of a digital asset. By selling digital goods as NFTs, Winkelmann and others believe things like his artwork can retain and appreciate in value, making them collectable — and earning its creator a commission in perpetuity. A series of single-image NFTs that Winkelmann sold as $1 proofs of concept last year have gone to resale for thousands of dollars, sending the artist a cut of sales automatically with each transaction. The record-breaking sale puts Winkelmann alongside art-market darlings Jeff Koons and David Hockney, artists whose works routinely sell for millions of dollars. —Sam Spence

Raishad Glover’s retro cubes are more than meets the eye BY HEATH ELLISON

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 03.17.2021

March 18-April 8 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Free The George Gallery

12

South Carolina artist Raishad Glover threw everything and the kitchen sink at his latest exhibit — but George Gallery guests might not realize it on initial inspection. Retro Cube Series seems easy to dissect at first glance: Each painting is a cube with a unique gradient stripe over it, with part of the shape’s exterior peeled away. But the more you look, the more there is to analyze. “These cubes act as a foundation, building blocks for family and community,” Glover said about the exhibit. “They work inside of each other, and then, you have the space around you that plays upon that. That black space around it — who knows? That could be another cube inside of a cube.” The artist’s use of negative space, visible brush strokes on the background and strips of color going through the white cubes imbue the sense of purpose and movement. Femininity is a prevailing theme throughout the series, according to Glover. Beeswax, a tongue-in-cheek reference to the queen bee, was used to create the cubes, while the exterior border of the shape resembles a honeycomb. “I think it adds a certain type of texture to it, another layer of texture,” he said. “Beeswax also has an iridescent look on it. It’s supposed to represent the idea of human tissue in a way.” On each cube, a missing portion of that outer layer reveals a series of smaller cubes within. Skin is a motif for some of Glover’s work; one piece at the George Gallery is an image of a skin cell, turned gray. According to the artist, this plays on identity and race “in an optimistic way” by turning the skin cell to a neutral color. The latest exhibit was crafted with some eclectic materials, including hemp board, watercolors and graphite. Glover’s background in mixed mediums helped inform how these paintings came together. “I like to dip into a little bit of all types of styles from black boxes to photography to lenticular to painting to performance art sometimes,” he said. “But, I like to look at it through the

lens of paint.” Although the paintings’ color palettes seem simple at first — a black background, white cube and a few slashes of color — Glover chose everything carefully. “I usually base [the strip of color] on color theory, principals, elements of design,” he said. “I play with those intuitively … I’m a big fan of grayscale, but when you add color to it, you advance upon the story, and it gets more personal.” Glover compared his works to sculptures because of the varied use of materials, instead of typical paint and canvas. Each started off as a sketch before he expanded on and edited them through computer software. After that,

the construction would begin. Glover, who holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale and teaches at Claflin University in Orangeburg, said themes of family and community are often present in his work. The feminine perspective in Retro Cube Series was inspired by Glover’s mother, he said, while the repetition of the cubes is a nod to his triplet siblings. Retro Cube Series is one of Glover’s first forays into op art, images that use optical illusions, and he believes it will influence his future work. “I’m working on a new series,” he said. “I’m still playing with different types of styles and concepts, but right now, I’m going to stick with the cube paintings for a while.”

The Charleston Horticultural Society will kick off “Spirit of Plantasia,” a month of events celebrating Lowcountry gardening, April 1. Garden enthusiasts will be able to purchase plants online April 1-20 or participate in events like social-distanced garden tours. “While we have experienced a variety of challenges, like all nonprofits have over the past year, we have found creative ways to fulfill our horticultural educational mission and get beautiful plants into the hands of as many Lowcountry gardeners as possible,” Horticultural Society director Kyle Barnette said in a press release. The Horticultural Society will partner with local artist Tate Nation for the event. Tickets and the full schedule can be found online at the Horticultural Society’s website. —Heath Ellison

JULIAN LIPPE ADDED HANDMADE PASTA TO THE STEMS & SKINS MENU IN OCTOBER 2020

On a Whim Stems & Skins expanding menu with modern plates from chef Julian Lippe

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 03.17.2021

BY PARKER MILNER

14

Stems & Skins executive chef Julian Lippe quickly climbed the ranks in the restaurant industry thanks in part to two influential kitchens, and he’s bringing what he learned to the Park Circle wine bar that’s becoming a dining destination, adding allure to a spot serving natural wines, classic cocktails and craft beers. You’ll still find the tinned seafood, cheese and charcuterie Stems & Skins patrons know and love, but these days, Lippe puts his skills on display with heartier plates like deconstructed seafood lasagna, seared brussels sprouts with miso and thyme butter, short rib agnolotti and more. “I think people are maybe starting to treat it more like a place to have dinner as opposed to a place to have an after-dinner drink, which I think is the goal,” Lippe said. “To be the evening and not the nightcap.” Lippe first realized his passion for cooking while attending Florida State University, and after graduating, the Florida-born chef moved to Philadelphia to work at a restaurant called Pennsylvania 6. “That was a raw-bar, steak-chophouse place,” said Lippe, who joined Pennsylvania 6 when he was just 23 years old. “That was my first sous chef position, which was way too early.” The now-30-year-old chef moved on to

Philadelphia kitchen Vernick Food & Drink, where owner Greg Vernick helped Lippe reach new heights. “I would say that place is what took me to that next level of just cooking and understanding what that meant,” he said. “That’s kind of where I embraced the idea of trying to do things perfectly.” Lippe moved to Charleston in 2018, and his journey to Park Circle had one last important stop — FIG, where he worked on the line under executive chef Jason Stanhope. The acclaimed restaurant provided chefs the tools needed to eventually set out on their own, Lippe said. “It’s really organized, and you’re pushed really hard. I was fortunate enough to experience that at Vernick, so it wasn’t a total culture shock to get pushed like that,” Lippe said. “You’re surrounded by incredible cooks, you’re led by an incredible chef and everyone gets pushed to be the best version of themselves.” Last year, Lippe and his fiancée moved from downtown’s Eastside neighborhood to Park Circle on a whim, and he decided to look for work closer to his new home. “I’d heard about Park Circle, but I never came up here,” Lippe said. “I never got too much farther than Santi’s. Now, I don’t go further South than that — that’s my marker.”

“I made the decision to leave FIG, not with any animosity or anything. I just felt like I wanted to cook my own food, and the idea was to do private dining,” said Lippe, who ventured into Stems & Skins to pick up some shifts to supplement paychecks from the private dinners. At the interview, Stems & Skins co-owners Matt Tunstall and Justin Croxall told him they were looking for a new executive chef. Unprepared for this type of interview, Lippe recalls mentioning that he wanted to serve handmade pasta off the cuff — this blank canvas dish has become a staple on the dinner menu. “The pasta thing was just kind of something I mentioned when they interviewed me, and it’s kind of stuck,” he said. “People like them. It’s fun, it’s rewarding — I find it very cathartic to make.” Lippe praised the work of former Stems & Skins executive chef Greg Marks but says there’s “more fluidity” to the menu now. Tunstall agrees. “Bringing chef Julian on has completed our team and has helped propel us into our next phase,” he said. “Stems & Skins has always been a place to have a ‘snack’ and a great drink, pre- or post-dinner, in this neighborhood. Now, you can spend your entire evening with us.”

After Eastside Bagel, a popular neighborhood bagel shop on Line Street, announced that it would permanently close in mid-January, coowner Jesse Warnock immediately started on plans for his next venture — Dos Taqueria. Since then, Warnock has been finalizing the menu and giving the former bagel shop a facelift with a small outdoor seating area and new takeout window installed in the freshly painted door. Dos Taqueria announced its opening last Tuesday via Instagram with a photo of the crew in the kitchen along with the simple caption, “Slingin’.” Open 7 a.m. — 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Dos Taqueria features a breakfastand-lunch-focused menu with a combination of burrito and taco offerings and a variety of fillings, from carnitas and chorizo to chicken tinga and charro beans. Tacos range between $3 and $4 — except for street tacos, which are two for $5. Former Eastside Bagel regulars can expect to see familiar faces as Warnock has kept on much of the same staff. And, those in the neighborhood still accustomed to grabbing their morning coffee from the former bagel shop can swing by Dos Taqueria in the morning for hot coffee, cold brew, the latest addition, Horchata cold brew. To try the new menu, visit the taco shop in person or call the Taco Hotline (843) 410-8782. —Samantha Connors

PADDOCK & WHISKY LOOKS TO PARK CIRCLE FOR SECOND LOCATION

Paddock & Whisky owners Chris Van Liew and Reid Stone are expanding their reach with a new Park Circle bourbon bar, set to open this summer. Located at 1074 East Montague Ave. — at the corner of Chateau and East Montague avenues near Basil and Stems & Skins, in a former bank building — Paddock & Whisky Park Circle will feature a 48-foot bar and full food menu. Taylor Garrigan, executive chef of Home Team BBQ, is consulting on the project. Paddock & Whisky opened on James Island in 2018, bringing an enviable bourbon selection, cocktails and local pop-ups to Maybank Highway. The new space will feature the expansive bar, a 1,600 squarefoot dining room and private tasting room in the former bank’s vault. “Our space on James Island is really just all bar and a patio,” Van Liew said. “I really wanted to kind of take that to the next step, pairing it with a full kitchen and back of house.” Garrigan will develop the menu before handing the reins to another chef to handle day-to-day operations, Van Liew said. Look for Paddock & Whisky Park Circle to debut in June or July. For more information, visit paddockandwhisky.com. —Parker Milner

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Poet Ocean Vuong speaks of the Hawaiian word kipuka. It refers to a patch of earth that doesn’t get covered with lava when an active volcano exudes its molten material. “Before the lava descended,” Vuong writes, “that piece of land was insignificant, just another scrap in an endless mass of green.” But now that piece of land is special, having endured. I encourage you to identify your metaphorical equivalent of kipuka, Aries. It’s an excellent time to celebrate the power and luck and resilience that have enabled you to persevere. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Extraordinary things are always hiding in places people never think to look,” writes Taurus author Jodi Picoult. Luckily for you, Taurus, in the near future you’ll be prone to look in exactly those places — where no one else has thought to look. That means you’ll be extra likely to find useful, interesting, even extraordinary things that have mostly been hidden and unused. You may also discover some boring and worthless things, but the trade-off will be worth your effort. Congratulations in advance on summoning such brave curiosity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “When we ask for advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice,” said Gemini author Saul Bellow. So if you have come here today to read my horoscopes, it’s possible that you’re seeking an accomplice to approve of you making a decision or a move that you have already decided to do. OK. I’ll be your accomplice. But as your accomplice, the first thing I’ll do is try to influence you to make sure your upcoming actions serve not only your own selfish interests (although there’s nothing wrong with that), but also serve the interests of people you care for. The weeks ahead will be a favorable time to blend self-interest and noble idealism. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A character in Barbara Kingsolver’s novel The Lacuna is told to “go rub his soul against life.” Now I’ll advise you to do the same. Why? While it’s true that you have a beautiful soul, you sometimes get in the habit of hiding it away or keeping it secret. You feed it a wealth of dreams and emotions and longings, but may not go far enough in providing it with raw experience out in the messy, chaotic world. In my judgment, now is one of those times when you would benefit from rubbing your soul against life. Please note: I DON’T mean you should go in search of rough, tough downers. Not at all. In fact, there are plenty of pleasurable, safe, educational ways to rub your soul against life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you love the work of self-help author Paulo Coelho, you might be inclined to adopt his motto as your own: “Being vulnerable is the best way to allow my heart to feel true pleasure.” But maybe you wouldn’t want to adopt his motto. After all, what he’s suggesting requires a great deal of courage and daring. Who among us finds it easy and natural to be soft and receptive and inviting? And yet according to my analysis of the astrological omens, this is exactly what your assignment should be for the next two weeks. To help motivate yourself, remember the payoff described by Coelho: the possibility that your heart will feel true pleasure. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo author Michael Ondaatje celebrates “the hidden presence of others in us — even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border we cross.” As you approach your own upcoming border-crossing, dear Virgo, I encourage you to tune into memories about seven specific people who over the course of your life have provided you with the most joy and the most interesting lessons. Close your eyes for 20 minutes and imagine they are all gathered together with you in your favorite sanctuary. Remember in detail the blessings they bestowed on you. Give thanks for their influences, for the gifts they gave that have helped you become your beautiful self. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “A balance that does not tremble cannot weigh. A person who does not oscillate cannot live.” So wrote biochemist Erwin Chargaff, who did crucial research leading to the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure. Since you’re

By Rob Brezsny

the zodiac’s expert on balance and oscillation, and because these themes will be especially meaningful for you in the coming days, I’ll ask you to meditate on them with extra focus. Here’s my advice: To be healthy and resilient, you need to be aware of other possibilities besides those that seem obvious and simple and absolutely true. You need to consider the likelihood that the most correct answers are almost certainly those that are paradoxical and complicated and full of nuance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In her poem “Sandra,” Scorpio poet Ariana Reines testifies that she has too many feelings — and that’s not a problem. On the contrary. They are her wealth, she says, her “invisible splendor.” I invite you to regard your own “too many feelings” in the same way, especially in the coming weeks. You will have opportunities to harness your flood of feelings in behalf of transformative insights and holistic decision-making. Your motto: Feelings are healing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Historian and author Thomas Berry described “wildness” as the source of our “authentic spontaneities.” He said it’s “the wellspring of creativity” at the root of our lust for life. That’s a different definition from the idea that wildness is about being unruly, rough, and primitive. And Berry’s definition happens to be the one that should be central to your work and play in the coming weeks. Your assignment is to be wild: that is, to cultivate your authentic spontaneities; to home in on and nourish the creative wellspring of your lust for life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Some of the great discoveries in the history of physics have been made while the trailblazing physicists are lolling in bed or in the bathtub. They have done the research and carried out the rigorous thinking, and are rewarded with breakthroughs while relaxing. I think that will be your best formula for success in the coming weeks. Important discoveries are looming. Interesting innovations are about to hatch. You’re most likely to gather them in if you work intensely on preparing the way for them, then go off and do something fun and rejuvenating. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): My typical horoscope is an average of 108 words long. In that limited space, I can’t possibly tell you all the themes and threads that will be active for you during the upcoming phase of your cycle. I have to make choices about what to include and what not to include. This time I’ll focus on the fact that you now have an opportunity to deepen your relationship with your sense of smell — and to purposefully nourish your sense of smell. Your homework: Decide on at least five scents with which you will cultivate an intimate, playful, delightful connection in the coming days. (PS: You may be surprised at how this practice will deepen your emotional connection with the world.) PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): No one had ever proven that there was such a thing as electromagnetic waves until Piscean physicist Heinrich Hertz (1857–1894) did so in 1886. He was the innovator who first transmitted and received controlled radio waves. Alas, he didn’t think his breakthrough was useful. In 1890, he confessed, “I do not think that the wireless waves I have discovered will have any practical application.” But other scientists were soon capitalizing on his work to communicate long distances. Radio broadcasts were born. I will encourage you not to make a Hertzian-type mistake in the coming months. Always follow through on your initial labors. Have faith that the novelties you dream up will eventually have practical value. Homework: If you believed everything you see in the “news,” you’d be so full of despair you couldn’t move. Describe how you protect yourself. Truthrooster@gmail.com

It sounds foreign to hear that a band is releasing a new album these days, but Charlestonbased punk rock band Blue Ricky will do just that on March 17. Nearly a year-to-the-day after most Charleston venues shut down, the crew will celebrate the release of Aversion Therapy at Tin Roof. The band consists of Ben Somewhere on guitar, Scott Brawner on bass and Roger Mindwater on drums, with all three contributing vocals to varying extents (Aversion Therapy is full of punk harmonies and inunison choruses). Blue Ricky is very much a punk band, but it makes a point of not carrying the anger and aggression that comes with the punk-band label. “Since the beginning, we’ve never wanted to be angry or tough. For us, the point is to have fun, and sometimes, fun is loud and raw,” Brawner said. “It sounds angry, but in early punk, I feel that it was really just about moving past the bullshit in your everyday life,” Mindwater said. “It can be just raw enthusiasm.” Aversion Therapy is the band’s second release, the first being the 2019 EP, Let’s Go to the Show. Both projects run heavily on late 1980s and ‘90s punk energy and style, with a straightforward missile of electric guitar, bass and drums. Simply put, it’s no-frills punk music that doesn’t exist within any of the genre’s many subcategories. It’s a niche that’s somewhat reflective of Charleston’s music community.

Darius Rucker has picked up just about the only honor he hasn’t already been bestowed as a Charleston native: Southerner of the Year. The country artist was granted the title by Southern Living magazine last week. After growing up in Charleston and cementing a solid early career as a splashy pop rock musician in Hootie & the Blowfish, Rucker has transformed himself into a bonafide country superstar. In 2012, Rucker was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, the pantheon of country music fame. He’s also made a point to use his fame to give back, reportedly raising over $2 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital over the years. “This is the toughest time we may have seen in the history of our country. Even when things are good, it’s amazing how many people could use help,” he told Southern Living editor Sid Evans. As 2021 Southerner of the Year, Rucker follows the 2020 honoree, another country star you may have heard of: Dolly Parton. —Sam Spence

“You have so many people from so many places here that there isn’t really a definitive sound,” said Somewhere, who originally hails from Louisiana. “Charleston itself is a welcoming place where you don’t have harsh winters and things like that, unlike really punk cities like New York and D.C. “It’s environmentally laid back here. People are really supportive here. I remember right off the bat when we first started this project we had people asking if we wanted to play shows with them. That’s not something that you can expect in a lot of other environments where it can be viewed as competitive.” That joining of a traditionally aggressive type of music with a warm climate, tourist destination city like Charleston is really the crux of Blue Ricky’s style. It’s the same punk that you know from your old Ramones cassettes, but it comes with a clear intent to have a good time while rapidly bobbing your head back and forth. Aversion Therapy was a self-driven project for the trio; it was recorded entirely in the band’s practice space at Mindwater’s home and was mixed by Brawner. The decision to record there was born out of necessity, after canceling their tour last year. “It didn’t take us very long to do because it was all at our own pace, and it sounds exactly how we wanted.” Mindwater said. Specifically, they recorded 18 songs in two sessions in addition to a little added time for overdubbing. “We never wanted to sound too big; we really just wanted it to sound honest and kind of raw,” Brawner said. For folks who hope to hear that “honest

“We never wanted to sound too big; we really just wanted it to sound honest and kind of raw.” —Scott Brawner

and raw” sound, you can stream a handful of tracks from Aversion Therapy on the band’s SoundCloud page, but to experience the whole album, you’ll have to get a physical CD. “We want people to experience it physically,” Somewhere said. “It has full liner notes, artwork, photos, and we wanted to take it back to that original framework that we all had growing up.” “I remember as a kid getting records and unpacking it all and looking at the liner notes,” Brawner added. It made you realize how much effort went into it.” Some will be less comfortable about venturing back into cozy Charleston dives like Tin Roof, but Somewhere said it’s been a trustworthy place in his experience. “I’ve played some solo shows since the beginning of the pandemic, and the Tin Roof is the one place I’ve been where they will seriously tell you to leave every time if you’re not wearing a mask.” But if you prefer to stream the new music online, the guys in Blue Ricky are perfectly cool with that too. “Anyone listening to it online is gravy,” Brawner said. “If we sit around in a room for the next 10 years and play music, that’s cool with me — just as long as we’re doing what we want to do. There’s no ulterior motives to it for us.”

Charleston Music Hall will celebrate the release of the vinyl recording of a fall benefit concert in April, after the pandemic stalled shows at the downtown venue. The Music Hall will release The Stage Sessions, Volume 1 April 2. The show, occurring a year after the hall shut its doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, is a reprisal of the show recorded six months earlier for Stage Sessions, on Sept. 9, 2020. The event and the record features 10 local artists, including Marcus Amaker, Mel Washington, Babe Club and more. The original recording took place in an effort to continue making music after six months of the COVID-19 shutdown. It includes a wide range of genres from modern hip hop to classic folk to spoken word to capture Charleston’s diverse musical offerings. The show will start at 8 p.m., with tickets starting at $20 — a $45 ticket also gets you a vinyl copy. Tickets will be sold in pairs or blocks of four to ensure social distancing protocols. A portion of proceeds will benefit artists. —Katherine Jordan

Flip the Script Honeypot drops 4th single ahead of album release Honeypot has dropped one last EP before the Charleston rock band’s album release on March 21. “Shut Your Mouth” is the last release of a string of singles off the band’s upcoming album, On the B Side. The latest song leans into a hard-rock sound, though the band usually plays with an indie-rock vibe. The band describes “Shut Your Mouth” as an “anti-love song about volatile relationships.” Guitarist and vocalist Frank Hartman, who is an attorney by trade, offers strong guitar riffs while singing the satirical song about a troubled relationship. Hartman told the website Concert Crap that the song “addresses long-term couple dynamics where someone seeks solace in substance abuse. As one person shrinks, the other looms larger to fill the void. But, with a funny backdrop.” “Shut Your Mouth” isn’t the first Honeypot song to spin a serious issue. In fact, it’s kind of the band’s stock and trade. “On the B Side,” the title track from the upcoming album, looks at celebrity and fortune. Two other tunes from the album, “Fake News” and

“Over the Line,” both look at the legacy of former President Donald Trump and political division. “Shut Your Mouth” is the fourth single to be released from Honeypot’s new album. Stream On the B Side starting March 21 on YouTube and Spotify. —Katherine Jordan
