The City of Charleston is in the process of forging a new comprehensive 10-year city plan, and city leaders are weighing changes and suggestions based on land and water analysis and other flooding data. Changes and proposals primarily revolve around rezoning the greater Charleston area based on elevation, hydrology and flood-risk data research. Those behind the proposals hope the changes will highlight parts of the city that are most vulnerable to tidal flooding and stormwater, as well as identify other areas better suited for future dense development. “This is a complete rethinking of the future of the city of Charleston,” planning director Robert Summerfield said during the June 30 joining workshop between City Council and the city’s planning commission. “The approach this team has taken — the very concept of addressing land use and future development based on sea level rise and the impact of uncertain weather conditions caused by climate change — these are things the rest of the country, even other coastal communities — they’re not there yet. This community, this city, is leading on that thinking.” The 88-page Charleston City Plan addresses existing conditions, community

priorities and recommendations for nine distinct elements: • Population • Natural resources • Cultural resources • Economic development • Transportation • Community facilities and priority investment • Housing • Land use • Resilience and equity The plan cites research conducted by a number of institutions in Charleston and abroad, including the city-commissioned Dutch Dialogues reports and a racial disparities study conducted by the Avery Institute in 2015. However, with information drawn from so many different places, some are seeing gaps in the planning process that they say should be filled. “Criminal justice and criminal justice reform was a major portion of that disparity study,” Charleston City Councilman Dudley Gregorie said during the meeting. “The study clearly talks about that system and how it has been negative in many ways toward certain populations. So my question

is: Is there a reason why we excluded certain things like public safety?” “I see it as a major part of any comprehensive plan that is being done through an equity lens,” he said. “Somehow, this should talk about how we are going to do things to foster greater and better relationships with our public safety department.” The plan primarily focuses on how city government should operate, but equity was a high priority in its development, according to Summerfield. “The community has already been dealing with the ramifications of not paying close enough attention to underrepresented communities, but then that responsiveness within this plan to equity and social injustice that’s been highlighted over the last year and a half,” he said. “That has gone into this plan. And that’s different from what’s come before it.” The majority of the two-hour workshop, however, focused on affordable housing and commercial development. “There is no city in the state that’s doing a better job at running a housing and community development department than the City of Charleston,” Councilman Ross Appel said during the workshop. “We are CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

Keith Benjamin’s last day as the City of Charleston’s director of transportation is July 16. Benjamin, who has worked in his role for four years, said he is leaving “for personal reasons” in a June 7 email addressed to Charleston City Council. Benjamin said he was proud of his team’s work that “set a new precedent in how transportation is defined in our city and larger region.” During his time as director, the city received $18 million in federal funding for a dedicated bike and pedestrian bridge over the Ashley River. Asked what his next move was, Benjamin told the City Paper, “At this time I am staying prayerful and considering my options with my family.” The new director will oversee a department of 67 full-time employees with an operating budget of $5.6 million, according to a brochure accompanying the job opening. —Sam Spence

Two Charleston-area men were the first sentenced to federal prison for their roles in King Street violence following May 2020 protests over the killing of George Floyd. Abraham Jenkins, 26, and Kelsey Donnell Jackson, 28, pleaded guilty in October 2020 to offenses related to violence and destruction along King Street in downtown Charleston, according to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Jenkins was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison, DOJ announced July 8. Jackson will spend 24 months in federal prison, DOJ officials announced July 12. Tearra Na’Asia Guthrie of Charleston also pleaded guilty last Jenkins year and was previously sentenced to time served, restitution and fees. A total of six people were dealt related federal charges. The night of May 30, 2020, a group of people took to upper King Street downtown, breaking windows and setting fires following a day of protest marches throughout downtown in which hundreds of people demonstrated against the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis a few days earlier. Over the course of the night, DOJ said Jenkins damaged a police car, sprayed a fire extinguisher at officers, threw a water

Broken glass and graffiti were left after violent protests on King Street last year bottle at an officer and threw a burning T-shirt into the broken back window of a Charleston police patrol car. According to DOJ, Jackson livestreamed himself while traveling downtown, pointing a gun at the camera and making provocative statements about police. Jackson also committed vandalism, assaulted civilians and attempted to set a police car on fire. Last year, Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds said he believed offenders from the May 30 events would spend “many years in prison for their actions,” according to ABC News 4. On July 8, he remained resolute, with more sentences likely down the road: “More

work remains to be accomplished as we continue investigating and prosecuting those violent offenders responsible for the significant destruction of property, assault on our citizens and attack on our officers.” Charleston police drew criticism for its handling of the May 30 violence. A day later, officers in riot gear shot pepper balls and tear gas at peaceful Marion Square protesters. Frank Knaack, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina, pointed to an “enduring disconnect,” on Chief Reynolds’ part, “between what happened on the 30th versus what happened on the 31st.” —Sam Spence

McMaster may face 2022 opposition from two sides S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster is seeking reelection in 2022 but is expected to face strong opposition from Democrats and perhaps from his own Republican Party. A lot of eyes are on Republican John Warren, an Upstate businessman and political newcomer who has not held elected office, but was able to secure a runoff four years ago against McMaster. McMaster, then running for his first full term after ascending to the office when Gov. Nikki Haley left to become U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, won the primary runoff, but not by much. He received 54% of the vote.

Will Warren run again?

“He has not decided yet,” said a Warren spokesman. Warren is the former owner of Lima One Capital, a successful mortgage finance company based in Greenville. In 2018, he ran against four other Republicans to get into the the runoff against McMaster by securing

27.8% of the vote, second to McMaster’s 42.3%. Other GOP candidates included then-current Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant of Anderson, former Lt. Gov. Yancey McGill of Kingstree and former agency head Catherine Templeton of Mount Pleasant. Last year, Warren started South Carolina’s Conservative Future, a political action committee to help financially boost Republican candidates. He also has used the group to urge the legislature to adopt stricter abortion Warren measures and to elect conservative judges. Warren recently launched a new initiative labeled “Accountability for Taxpayers” and delivered a slew of attacks on the current administration. “We promised to expose problems created by the career politicians in Columbia

— specifically wasteful spending and corruption,” he said in a post. “Unfortunately for the people of South Carolina, there are more examples than we could possibly count, but first up on the list: South Carolina’s 2021-2022 budget.” Despite the state having a $1.7 billion surplus this year, taxpayers are getting nothing in tax relief, Warren said. Instead, “politicians have used our money to help themselves to a pork spending buffet.” Examples he listed include: $5 million for an opera house; $200,000 for a food and wine festival; $550,000 for an art park project; and $250,000 for a tennis center. While Warren is the most talked-about potential GOP challenger for McMaster, legislative sources also point to possibilities that other candidates from the right might take on McMaster in the 2022 primary, including Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey, Templeton or a right-wing activist CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

A downtown man told officers that a woman had brandished a knife at him, and when he asked, “What are you going to do, stab me?” she attempted to stab him. This man is probably unaware of how close he came to having the best worst last words in history. RUNNERS UP Officers reported receiving a phone call from a woman who told them that, while living in California, she had encountered issues involving her daughter’s father’s daughter’s stepbrother and an Arizona police department. Could anyone follow that? A downtown officer in a parked car watched as a man turned into a gravel parking lot, and slowly rolled his car forward into a ditch. The obviously drunken driver told the officer he was “just power sliding, man.” During a sobriety test, a man suspected of driving under the influence in West Ashley told officers maybe he was the sober one, and everyone else was drunk. Officers did admit they hadn’t thought of that before.

leading the way in city-sponsored, citybacked, city-funded, city-incentivized affordable housing.” But, he said that it would be extremely difficult for the city to reach its 2030 goal of building 16,000 new affordable housing units in Charleston by 2030, an average increase of 94 units per year. And, he said, the actual number of needed affordable housing units is probably much higher. “It’s a supply-and-demand problem,” he said. “We have to get more supply on the market, and it’s got to come in all forms. It’s that data point, that ... there’s only so many affordable housing units the City of Charleston can bring on board.” “We have a pricing problem,” he continued. “In any other market … If there’s a pricing problem, you have to find what’s

The Democratic field

6

Even if McMaster makes it unscathed through the GOP primary, three Democrats have already launched campaigns, which could prove difficult for a state dominated by GOP voters. No Democrat has been elected governor in South Carolina in more than 20 years. All statewide offices, most of the congressional delegation and majorities in both state legislative chambers are held by Republicans. But two high-profile candidates say they are up for the challenge. If elected, Sen. Mia McLeod, D-Columbia, would be the first AfricanAmerican woman to hold the office in South Carolina, a feat that could turn out more Democratic voters. She was first elected to the state House in 2010 and then to the Senate in 2016. She serves District 22, which includes parts of Kershaw and Richland counties. McLeod didn’t mince words when she gave the Democrats’ response to McMaster’s 2021 State of the State address. She called McMaster’s effort to manage the state’s COVID-19 outbreak a “colossal failure.” While Democrats have not had much success with the governor’s race over the last several years, McLeod said she is ready. “I’ve been fighting the status quo for 10 years, and I’m still fighting, taking on the fights no one else will, even when I fight alone,” McLeod told her supporters during her announcement. Another Democratic fighter in the race is Joe Cunningham, a former congressman

wrong with that to find why there’s a supply and demand distortion.” Appel said the problem is far beyond Charleston, and that it will take time for the housing market here and abroad to heal. Commercially, areas along upper King and Meeting streets were designated by city leaders as ripe for dense development moving forward, as well as land along Sam Rittenberg Boulevard and Bees Ferry Road in West Ashley; areas on Maybank Highway on James and Johns islands; and properties along Interstate 526 and Clements Ferry Road on Daniel Island. The Charleston City Plan is not a legally binding document, but it has influence on laws and regulations made by city leaders. Charleston City Council is expected to take a vote on the new plan this summer, and more changes are expected to come. The most recent version of the draft can be found online at charlestoncityplan.com. from Charleston who has already proven he can win election in a deep-red state. In his 2018 run for Congress, he won a Republican seat held previously by former Gov. Mark Sanford. Cunningham is ignoring naysayers who say a Democrat can’t win a statewide race. “We’ve heard that before,” Cunningham said in his announcement. In 2018, thanks to many of you, I flipped a congressional district that had not voted for a Democrat in 40 years—the district that Donald Trump won by 13 percentage points. On election night in 2018, the experts gave us a 9%, not 90%, chance at winning. But we won then, and we’re going to do it again.” But two years later, with the help of the presidential election in November 2020, former state GOP Rep. Nancy Mace of Daniel Island, defeated Cunningham to win the seat back for Republicans by fewer than 6,000 votes. Democratic activist Gary Votour of Columbia, who describes himself as a health care and social justice activist, has also entered the race. He is relatively unknown in South Carolina politics.

McMaster’s campaign

McMaster won his first full term, defeating Democratic challenger James Smith by about 8 percentage points. Its website boasts about a strong and vibrant South Carolina economy under his leadership, with 45,000 new jobs and more than $13.5 billion in new capital investment in the state. McMaster says the state has made transformative investments in the classroom by expanding full day 4-year-old kindergarten, raising K-12 teacher pay and placing a school resource officer in every school. He says colleges and universities are becoming more accessible and affordable due to his tuition freeze and by his doubling of funding for needs-based financial aid for in-state students. —Al Dozier

EDITORIAL

ou’ve heard Democrats and Republicans rail against earmarks. Commonly derided as wasteful or selfmotivated, earmarks do indeed sometimes show hints of corrupt forces at work within our institutions. But like them or not, approving the tidal wave of earmarked spending in state and federal budgets each year represents one of the very few times Republicans and Democrats actually work together. At worst, an earmark abuses the public’s trust in government by using tax money to curry political favor, all hidden within government bureaucracy. At best, targeted appropriations pump resources into worthy community projects that may not normally get the time of day for any number of reasons — timing, competing priorities, petty issues and even a state’s politics. Yes, a few earmarks can be what some call “pork barrel” spending — wasteful and irrelevant — but basic earmark criticism is over process — funding approved outside normal procedures. At one time, when government moved along slower than it does now, earmarks served as a way for lawmakers to deliver benefits for their constituents. These days, intransigence and frustration rules. Earmark popularity in Washington exploded through the 1990s and 2000s with bad actors drawing criticism leading to Democratic reforms in 2007 to increase transparency behind the funding requests. The number of earmarks dropped. But in 2010, new tea party members doubled down, enacting a meaningless “earmark moratorium” — an easy talking point since most tea party members don’t believe in the governing part of government anyway. Not surprisingly,

Y

earmarks never really went away and government dysfunction spiked. The ideological wandering continued in 2016 when Republicans, back in power, abandoned their moratorium — among other things. Now, earmarks are poised for a comeback, with liberals and conservatives seemingly ready to give up on a decade of disingenuous debates over deficit spending and moral high ground. Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, for one, has always been an earmark supporter. Rural pockets of South Carolina between Paxville and Nixville, often left out of major projects, have reaped hundreds of millions in Clyburn earmarks. “These are communities which were systematically denied state and federal resources for decades. I believe as their representative, my work should be transparent and open, so it can be held up to public scrutiny. If the projects I have funded don’t meet with their approval, voters may speak their mind every two years in November,” Clyburn said back in 2008, as earmark hysteria was ramping up. Last month, Gov. Henry McMaster vetoed $152 million in state earmarks and the legislature promptly overrode him, another rare show of bipartisanship. On the left, critics correctly point out that earmarks could signal a return to old, familiar institutions just as the liberal progressive movement shines a light on the discriminatory systems that protected those in power over the last century. Safeguards must protect against that kind of backsliding. But we are in need of a reset. Transparent and accountable earmarks represent a way we can begin rebuilding trust in our government.

*Of course there’s a caveat in South Carolina. The S.C. Department of Administration’s salary search portal of the 23,328 state employees who earn more than $50,000 does not include people who work at several agencies, such as the legislature, the courts, Santee Cooper and the S.C. State Ports Authority. And we know some of those folks earn money by the bucket. Among those who earn far more than Gov. Henry McMaster, who is simply designated as an “agency head,” are football coaches, university administrators, college professors and hundreds of other agency leaders. Even in the governor’s office, four people are paid more than the statewide elected head of the executive branch, including the governor’s chief of staff ($193,545), chief legal counsel ($139, 528), deputy chief of staff ($128,484) and senior education adviser ($120,000). This week, we learned five agency heads who After state already earned far more than the average state employees busted employee and average family in South Carolina got raises that can best be described as obscene. These their butts during agency directors included: the pandemic, these S.C. Office of Regulatory Staff Executive Director Nanette Edwards, who now earns $265,000 a year (a raises seem like a 48% raise); slap in the face. S.C. Department of Administration Executive Director Marcia Adams, $284,679 (a 27% raise); S.C. Department of Corrections Director Bryan Stirling, $250,000 (a 25% raise); State Fiscal Accountability Authority Executive Director Grant Gillespie, $245,000 (a 22% raise); and S.C. Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall, $298,000 (a 19% raise). A little over a year ago, Hall got a 32% raise, according to news reports. The folks who voted for the raise are on the state Agency Head Salary Commission, a panel made of four House members, four senators and three people appointed by the governor. The panel includes three Democratic legislators and five Republicans. The only person voting against the raises was Senate President Harvey Peeler (R-Gaffney) who suggested raises could be spread out over three years. “It’s not the people,” Peeler said. “We have great people. They’ve earned their pay, but it’s just the numbers. It’s hard for me to justify this time.” Yep, he’s right on target. In a time when the vast majority of state employees earn less than $50,000 and who get small raises every few years, it’s hard to feel comfortable about any individual five-figure raise. Furthermore, it just doesn’t look good. After state employees busted their butts during the pandemic, these raises seem like a slap in the face. About the The agency head pay hikes predictably raised the ire of the state writer … Democratic Party, with Chairman Trav Robertson one day calling Andy Brack is for McMaster to explain why his appointees deserved big raises. The publisher of next day, Robertson turned it up a notch, calling on the governor to Charleston direct them to refuse the pay increases. Like that will happen. City Paper. He also called on the state to double the minimum wage paid to many state workers to $15 per hour: “The work our state employees do is imperative to the success and health of our state, these administrators included, but to have their pay raised so dramatically while many of their subordinates make poverty wages is bad form and stinks of corruption.” He’s right about one thing: The whole mess reeks.

AT HOME IN THE LOWCOUNTRY

The critic who defines minimalism By Andy Brack

Stepping into Jim Voigt’s brick ranch home in North Charleston is (understatement alert) an exercise in ultimate minimalism.

The distinguishing feature of the empty front room is the gray shag carpet marked by parallel sweep paths from a vacuum cleaner. The walls are empty. A nearby dining room has a marble table with four chairs. Again, nothing is on the walls. Next door atop a counter is a dorm-size refrigerator, but it’s unplugged and empty. Beneath is a dishwasher replete with the stickers that were on it when it was installed 15 years ago. Down the hall on the left is a brown-themed bathroom (one towel). Across the way is a bedroom that’s empty, except for eight stacks of CDs. Then there’s the actual bedroom, which features a king bed and wall-mounted TV. A third bedroom almost screams: THE STUFF IS IN HERE. But there’s little more than several more stacks of CDs, albums and a Fender Stratocaster guitar from 1985 that ground out punk tunes three decades ago. Oh, there’s carpet. It’s still gray. Folks, you’re in the spartan home of a minimalist par excellence, the legendary Charleston broadcaster The Critic, afternoon DJ on 105.5 The Bridge.

Neither the small refrigerator nor the dishwasher are used in Voigt’s home. He eats and drinks out.


Jim “The Critic” Voigt will tell you he has hundreds of favorite songs. We asked him to narrow it down to his top 100 now. “I’m not saying they’re THE greatest,” he qualifies. “But they’re MY favorites.” To make the exercise a challenge, we asked for the songs in order of preference. His list includes 20 songs from the 1950s and ’60s as well as 20 each from the four decades that followed. Enjoy: 100. “Evil” - Interpol 99. “Alone again or” - Love 98. “Favorite shirt” - The Figgs 97. “Stay with me” - The Dictators 96. “The new world” - X 95. “Inside of love” - Nada Surf 94. “Simmer down” - The Wailers 93. “Haven’t got a clue” - Dramarama 92. “Radio radio” - Elvis Costello 91. “Everyday things” - The Plimsouls 90. “Baby goes to 11” - Superdrag 89. “Break on through” - The Doors 88. “American music” - Violent Femmes 87. “Dreaming” - Blondie 86. “Touch me I’m sick” - Mudhoney 85. “King of diamonds” - Motopony 84. “Jailhouse rock” - Elvis Presley 83. “It’s a shame about Ray” - The Lemonheads 82. “Down on the street” - The Stooges 81. “Absolutely sweet Marie” - Jason and the Scorchers 80. “Keg on my coffin” - The Push Stars 79. “I’ll feel a whole lot better” - The Byrds 78. “Jimmy’s fantasy” - Redd Kross 77. “Ridin’ in my car” - NRBQ 76. “In between days” - The Cure 75. “Hate to say I told you so” - The Hives 74. “I saw her again” - The Mamas & the Papas 73. “Time bomb” - The Old 97’s 72. “Marquee moon” - Television 71. “If I should fall from grace with God” - The Pogues 70. “Better off now that you’re gone” - Will Hoge 69. “Hot fun in the summertime” - Sly & the Family Stone 68. “Evangeline” - Matthew Sweet 67. “Dance the night away” - Van Halen 66. “How much more” - The Go-Go’s 65. “She doesn’t like weed” - The Dugans 64. “Sunday morning” - The Velvet Underground 63. “Breed” - Nirvana 62. “Roadrunner” - The Modern Lovers 61. “Another nail in my heart” - Squeeze 60. “I need love” - Courtney Jaye 59. “It came out of the sky” - Creedence Clearwater Revival 58. “Backwater” - The Meat Puppets 57. “Don’t come close” - The Ramones

What The Critic Missed

The beauty of lists of favorites is they are personal choices informed by a life of listening. A value of lists is that they may open new tunes and bands for you to experience, just as The Critic exposes listeners to every week through his Sunday “The Critic’s Choice” radio show (105.5 FM, The Bridge). For example, we’d forgotten how good some songs are (“God only knows,” “Gardening at night”) and we found some bands not on our radar (Blue Mountain, Will Hogue, The Hives). So we hope the list sparks some thought — and some discussion — about what songs or artists The Critic failed to include. For example, where are tunes from The English Beat, XTC, Foo Fighters, Cake, The B-52s, The Jam, the Allman Brothers, Romeo Void and The Police? But then again, what would you omit? You can listen to the Critic’s 100 top picks online at charlestoncitypaper.com. —Andy Brack

THE LOWDOWN ON THE CRITIC Birthplace: Massapequa, N.Y., home of Jerry Seinfeld, Alec Baldwin and the Baldwin brothers, and the rockabilly band, The Stray Cats. Education: “One year at the University of Maryland. I remain a college dropout.” Profession: Radio deejay with 96 Wave (1992-2007) and 105.5 The Bridge (2008 to present). Past profession: Musician/ guitarist/vocalist for several garage/punk bands. You might be surprised to learn: “In the band days, we got to play at CBGB’s and other legendary venues in New York. We also opened 96 Wavefest at Brittlebank Park in front of 40,000 people. And we once had the pleasure and honor of opening up for and meeting the Ramones, who turned out to be very friendly and personable.” Book on bedside table: In Polite Company by Charleston’s own Gervais Hagerty. Something I have too much of: “There is no one more minimalistic than me. The only possessions I have in abundance are my albums and CDs — and I need to downsize on those!” Hobbies: “I try to start each weekday morning with a workout in my home gym known as The Pain Cave. Then it’s a couple of hours of listening to music to play on Sunday morning’s Critic’s Choice program.” Three people I’d like to dine with: Chrissie Hynde, Hank Aaron, Paul Westerberg. My philosophy: “ ‘Have a good time all the time.’ Actually, I stole that from This Is Spinal Tap. How about, ‘Make the most of your 24 hours.’ I think that’s original. Could be stolen, too, though.”

Air plants can thrive in your homes By Toni Reale, Special to Digs Air plants are miraculous pocket-to-palm sized plants with incredible diversity. There are more than 700 species of air plants in the world including one iconic to Southern landscapes: Spanish moss. All air plants are members of the bromeliad family and the genus tillandsia. Despite the name, air plants need a bit more than air to survive and thrive. These unique plants are epiphytes, meaning they do not root in soil, but grow attached to other plant life, such as trees. In their natural habitat, they get all of their nutrients from rain and any debris carried by air or clustered near it. Air plants don’t have a traditional root system. Instead, they absorb nutrients through Reale trichomes, which look like tiny white hairs on the surface of their leaves, giving them their silvery-like appearance. Trichomes aren’t hairs at all. Rather, they are tiny vessels made of living and dead cells that funnel water and nutrients into the plant. The dead cells absorb and store water for future use. According to the Toronto Botanical Garden, the amount of trichomes varies per species depending on the environmental conditions of their native habitat. Tillandsia that look more “fuzzy” have more trichomes and are native to more desert-like environments. The fewer trichomes on a plant means that its natural habitat is more tropical. The general amount of trichomes influences the type of care that specific species of air plants require. The more fuzzy, the more sunlight it can take and the more drought-tolerant that plant can be.

Great starter plants

Although the biology of air plants seems complex, air plants are excellent starter plants for the beginner plant parent. The most important thing to consider when adding an air plant to your collection is placement. Lighting is key, and too much light will burn the plant; too little will not provide optimal growing conditions. Air plants in general thrive in bright yet, indirect light. As a general rule, these lighting conditions can be found 3 feet to 5 feet away from a southern or western facing window. If placement is limited in your home, monitor the sunlight coming in through the panes over a few days to determine where optimal lighting would be. Since tillandsia do not require soil and therefore remove the

Spanish moss is a member of the pineapple family. need for a pot, they can be fun to style in your home. Many find hanging plant holders, glass globes, corks and even sea urchin shells to display air plants. A quick scroll on Pinterest will be sure to inspire. Keep in mind that glass globes or terrariums amplify the sunlight that reaches a plant, which means you may have to adjust the placement of your plant. A proper watering and fertilizing schedule will ensure your air plant lives a long, healthy life. At Roadside Blooms, we give all of our air plants a weekly bath. Using room temperature tap water, we submerge our plants for thirty minutes to one hour. Then, we shake off any excess water and gently dry upsidedown overnight before placing them back into their holders or containers. Because trapped water can rot the bottom of the stalk. Every other week, we spray a small amount of tillandsia-specific fertilizer into the water before dunking. This is because they are not getting the same amount of nutrients in your home as

they would outside. Your persistent care will pay off as most air plants flower annually. Some go through a blushing phase where the plant will turn a little pink or red before it flowers. Unfortunately, after the mother tillandsia blooms, it dies, but offspring grow in its place. Don’t throw out any “dead”-looking air plants after they flower. Keep caring for them as you would if they were still alive because they are working hard to grow their “pups,” or baby plants. They are slow growers, but once you see those baby tillandsia growing underneath the leaves of the mother plant, the care was worth it. Toni Reale is the owner of Roadside Blooms, a unique flower and plant shop in Park Circle in North Charleston. It specializes in weddings, events and everyday deliveries using nearly 100 percent American- and locally grown blooms.

SOUTH CAROLINA DEVELOPS

A NEW METHOD OF

EXECUTION

… AGAIN

South Carolina’s electric chair dates back to 1912, when the state conducted its first electrocution execution

Photography by S.C. Department of Corrections

outh Carolina convicted two men to die by electrocution for the first time in 1912, and Tench Boozer needed to figure out how to do it. As the state electrician, Boozer was among those involved with fine-tuning the newly adopted “death chamber.” “I will appreciate very much any information you may decide to forward me,” he wrote his Massachusetts counterpart. More than a century later, South Carolina officials are still trying to figure out the best way to end the lives of fellow citizens sentenced to die at the hands of the state. South Carolina law gives condemned criminals the ability to choose the method by which they will die. Until this year, the default was lethal injection, and the electric chair was a second option. But as public support for capital punishment waned, pharmaceutical companies became unwilling to ship states the deadly cocktail of drugs needed to end a life. For a decade, S.C. leaders have been clamoring to figure out how to restart executions. This year, lawmakers finally passed a bill that reconfigured the state’s death penalty rules. Electrocution is now the state-endorsed execution method if lethal injection isn’t available, and the new law introduced a third option: firing squad. With an amended statute nominally in place, state-retained lawyers notified the South Carolina Supreme Court on May 19 that the S.C. Department of Corrections (SCDC) “is now able to carry out executions by electrocution.” Brad Sigmon, who pleaded guilty to a 2002 double murder in Greenville County, was the first scheduled. But with lethal injection unavailable and the state’s new firing squad not yet assembled, the high court vacated Sigmon’s execution order. Right now, South Carolina Corrections

officials are in the process of developing protocols for a firing squad. They say they are consulting with other states with similar policies.

Literature or drawings

Tench Boozer signed letters simply as, “State Electrician.” He would hold the post for just seven years, appointed in 1911 by Gov. Coleman Blease at age 25. He died in 1918 at 32 from pneumonia brought on by epidemic Spanish flu. Boozer’s duties ranged from the statehouse to the death house. Blease was notorious in his own time as an amoral demagogue whose naked class appeals to conservative white mill workers and urban anti-prohibitionists alike turned off even Ben Tillman, the violent, virulent former governor and U.S. senator. And while lynching and state factories devoid of health and safety laws were OK in Blease’s book, death by hanging was just too much. “It seems to me that this is a much more humane manner of execution than the barbaric form of hanging,” Blease wrote to lawmakers Jan. 9, 1912, according to the Charleston News and Courier. The law swapping the gallows for the electric chair, passed March 2, 1912, was hailed in the paper as “one of the most important measures passed by the General Assembly in many years.” A week after the law was passed, with executions already on the books for June, Boozer got to work. “I will appreciate any literature or drawings of your chair and electric apparatus, also of the death chamber,” Boozer wrote to the Massachusetts state electrician, according to letters filed as part of Sigmon’s federal appeal. State officials purchased their new electric chair from New Jersey-based Adams Electric Company in May 1912 at a cost of $2,800, according to The News and Courier. The apparatus required additional electricity at the penitentiary when power itself was still relatively scarce — some rural South Carolinian areas would not be electrified for 20 more years. By all accounts, the chair purchased in 1912 is the same one used today, though some elec-


Arbitrary

In 1972, as now, there was concern about disparities in death penalty cases. Justice Thurgood Marshall noted varying experiences across the board in cases involving the death penalty, particularly when it came to class. “It is the poor, and the members of minority groups who are least able to voice their complaints against capital punishment,” Marshall wrote in a concurring majority opinion in Furman v. Georgia. Ruling that death penalties were doled out arbitrarily in Georgia, the Furman decision effectively halted capital punishment in the U.S. until Gregg v. Georgia ruled in 1976 that new changes made state law more universally applicable. Marshall remained unconvinced in dissent. Many of those disparities are still with us today. More than half of South Carolina’s 37 death row inmates are Black, according to the SCDC, while Black South Carolinians make up just 27% of the population. A victim’s race in a S.C. capital case can also be an indicator of whether a death sentence will be handed down. According to the Death Penalty Information Project, of the 43 executions performed in South Carolina since 1977, nearly 70% of the related crimes involved white victims. Those statistics are not lost on death penalty critics, who echo Marshall’s stance on its arbitrary nature. “In reality, the likelihood of receiving a death sentence in South Carolina is not primarily based on the facts in your case, but rather on the race and gender of the victim, the location of the offense and the solicitor in office at the time of the offense,” American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina executive director Frank Knaack wrote in a February City Paper op-ed.

Best practices

Access to current state execution protocols is “restricted,” SCDC spokesperson Chrysti Shain told the City Paper in June. But 2002 procedures also marked “Restricted” — obtained as part of a Freedom of Information Act request and filed in federal court by attorneys for Brad Sigmon — mapped out, down to the minute, how executions were carried out in the Palmetto State at that time.

On the day of their execution, inmates set to die by electrocution had their head and lower-right leg shaved, took a shower and wore pants cut off at the knee (to ensure contact with conducting strips on the chair). Once inside the execution chamber, the inmate was strapped in and outfitted with a leather cap studded with a brass electrode and lined with copper mesh and a sponge soaked in ammonia chloride. Sigmon’s attorneys believe the cap to have been purchased by the state in the 1980s from Fred Leuchter, a self-taught execution expert who made a career out of advising states before publishing his own analysis questioning the Holocaust. Shain said she had “no information” on Leuchter’s past with the department. At the appointed time, three executioners chosen from SCDC employee volunteers stand behind a one-way mirror facing the condemned inmate. Each pushes a red button at the far end of the room. All three buttons are capable of starting the deadly 2,000-volt cycle, according to another SCDC document filed by Sigmon’s attorneys, “but only one is active during an execution” — a psychological sleight of hand. In Utah, five firing squad officers stand 25 feet from an offender and are similarly equipped with blank rounds. Utah is one of three states that still use firing squads that South Carolina is turning to for guidance. “We’re looking at best practices and what’s been done in other places to create our policies and procedures,” Shain told the City Paper. There is no expected timeline for the policy’s development.

Appetite for punishment

From her time as a criminal defense attorney, Cameron Blazer describes navigating a “deeply punitive” justice system that prioritizes retribution over prevention. “I, every day, am up against that punitive culture in our criminal justice laws and in the environment of criminal justice. And it extends far beyond the most serious part of criminal punishment,” Blazer told the City Paper. Gov. Henry McMaster noted the adjusted state law could be some consolation to victims’ families and loved ones. “This weekend, I signed legislation into law that will allow the state to carry out a death sentence. The families and loved ones of victims are owed closure and justice by law. Now, we can provide it,” he tweeted May 17. But that closure may still be elusive, Blazer said, with each death penalty case drawing close scrutiny and challenges. “The finality that people desperately seek, when they have been through an awful tragedy, is not going to come to them in any speedy fashion through the death penalty, nor can it or should it, given how bad we are at imposing it.”

trical components have been updated. Some parts were being adjusted soon after executions began, according to letters between Boozer and Adams Electric. “Secure and send me two sets of sponges, as thick as you can get them,” he wrote Aug. 13, 1913. Sponges are still used to ensure an electrical connection between the chair and the inmate’s bare head. The day South Carolina’s new execution law was passed, two men were sentenced to death by electrocution. By June, there would be at least four others, according to news reports. Five were Black, one white.

Danielle LaVia was busy living in New York City prior to landing in the Lowcountry in 2017, honing her skills as a writer, performer, educator, director and producer. She is proud to now call Charleston home, but she told the City Paper that it didn’t take long before she began noticing there was something missing from the local arts scene. In fact, this realization was the impetus behind LaVia launching the Charleston Playhouse, the region’s first professional Equity musical theater company, where players are represented by the Actors’ Equity Association labor union. As LaVia recalls, continually confronting the gap in the theater community was initially a source of frustration, but she eventually used those challenges as inspiration in creating the city’s first Equity operation, where she’s now the executive artistic director. “I was frequently speaking with theater professionals here about how frustrated we were that Charleston didn’t have an Equity theater. I must have had that conversation 15 times. Then, a former colleague of mine called me one day telling me she has had enough of New York and wanted a better quality of life close to the beach, while still being able to continue her career as a performer. She asked me to tell her about Charleston’s Equity theater, and I regretfully told her we didn’t have one,” LaVia said. “I told her she was preaching to the choir, and that I wondered why every single day. Then, I hung up the phone that day and decided I was going to make it happen.” This is not to say that big things were not already happening here in terms of theater. As LaVia explained, it was more a matter of securing justice for those already working in the industry. “Charleston has a ton of theater companies, and they are all doing great work. However, it is time to start compensating our professional artists with what they deserve and to begin giving them the

Danielle LaVia hopes a new Equity theater will increase representation for BIPOC performers and in company leadership opportunity to make a living here, instead of being expected to show up and perform as a labor of love,” she said. Knowing what she wanted to do, LaVia began exploring the feasibility of implementing her dream. “I spoke to many executive artistic directors and founders of theater companies across the country over the last few years and really took the time to dive into my due diligence,” she said “I wanted to make sure I didn’t rush the process. I spent over two years behind the scenes bringing this idea to fruition; making sure I had the right team, support, venue, timing, etc.” Acknowledging that she proudly heads up a small-but-top-notch team, LaVia identified one crucial collaborator along the way: “I spent a while trying to find the perfect partner to walk through this huge undertaking alongside me. I reached out to many friends, having them hook me up with professionals in the area, and vetted them in a sort of secret way until I felt that they were someone I knew would fit this role perfectly. Thomas Keating, our current producing director, was that person. Thomas is the yin to my yang.” LaVia said she and Keating are, in turn, hoping that other theater lovers in the community will rally around them to help get the Charleston Playhouse fully up and running. “We are in the process of doing everything in our power to get funded and ready to

jump into production in 2022, and we are actively looking for individual donors and corporate sponsors in our area who would like to be a part of bringing Charleston Playhouse to life from the ground up.” According to LaVia, Charleston Playhouse has two objectives that sets it apart. The first is to increase representation of BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of color) performers on the stage and in positions of leadership in Charleston’s theater scene. The second major priority for Charleston Playhouse is to make sure that artists and local theater professionals are receiving what LaVia sees as a long-overdue, welldeserved and competitive weekly salary, while also positively affecting the overall economic growth for the city of Charleston. Even in the midst of challenging times, LaVia is encouraged by everything that has come together for Charleston Playhouse thus far, adding that there has already been an outpouring of support from performers and professionals with ties to the area who are currently living in places like New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, waiting for a company like this to finally come to Charleston so that they can afford to head back home. The Charleston Playhouse will announce its 2022-2023 season at its Cabaret Gala on Dec. 4. For more information visit charlestonplayhouse.com.

Post House executive chef Nathan Hood grew up on Isle of Palms

By Parker Milner Nathan Hood was raised on Isle of Palms, but he spent his free time in historic Mount Pleasant, steps away from where he now helms the Post House kitchen. “I literally grew up in the Old Village, and now my kids are playing in the same marsh and creeks that I did,” said Hood, who assumed the role of executive chef in February. “It’s a fulfillment you didn’t even know existed until you watch your kids do it.” After working in kitchens in California, Connecticut and even Hawaii, Hood’s return to Charleston is a full-circle moment. At 15, he started washing dishes and peeling shrimp at Long Island Cafe before a friendship with the children of Frank Lee, the long-running Slightly North of Broad chef, who eventually helped him get his foot in the door. The chef even taught him a few things along the way, Hood said. “I started learning the brigade system, and just how cool that operation is,” said Hood, referring to the regimented French system in which cooks perform tasks at given stations.

“It’s like stepping into a different world.” It was a world where Hood felt at home, so much so that he took on a second job at the Old Village Post House, where he worked the lunch service before heading downtown to S.N.O.B. for dinner. A lot has changed at the 125-year-old establishment, thanks to Basic Project owners Ben and Kate Towill, who totally revamped the inn and restaurant before reopening in August 2020. “It’s pretty insane to be back in that building. It was good back in the day, but if you wanted to eat good food, you went downtown,” said Hood, who moved back to Charleston shortly after the onset of the pandemic. “We came down just to visit, and that’s when I really saw how well they redid everything. I went in to say hi to [former executive chef Evan Gaudreau] in the kitchen, and he was like, ‘You should really meet these guys.’” A meeting one week later with Ben Towill led to a sous chef position, which turned CONTINUED ON PAGE 24

into a promotion to executive chef when Gaudreau left. Since taking over, Hood has made his mark on the kitchen, too, starting with weekend brunch. There’s a benedict, quiche and shakshuka on the mid-morning menu, but the fish sandwich is the brunch dish Hood is most proud to serve. “Every time I’ve been away from Charleston, I’ve just really wanted a fried fish sandwich,” said Hood, but “every time I came home, there wasn’t a really good [one].” On those days, Hood would pick up a piece of grouper from Abundant Seafood and cook one up at home. His Post House iteration — fried in a “hybrid beer tempura batter” and placed inside a Brown’s Court bun with lettuce and an acidic green tomato tartar sauce — evokes memories of a family fish fry after a day on the water. “We have people come back every Saturday and Sunday just for the fish sandwich,” Hood said. While the “backbar cheeseburger” is a favorite on the medium-sized Post House dinner menu, seafood is the real star, as Hood’s experience cooking with the Lowcountry’s bounty is put on display. Lately, fresh pasta is popping up on the menu, a skill Hood — who spent time in San Francisco at Quince, a three-Michelin-

starred California-Italian eatery — is able to showcase thanks to a new pasta extruder and semolina flour imported from Italy. As the new Post House approaches its one-year anniversary, the restaurant has become a place where Old Village families wander down the street three times a week, sitting down at a table next to a couple from New York who drove across the Ravenel Bridge from their downtown hotel. Hood feels at home in the space, even more so now that his brother Davis has joined the team as sous chef — how about that for full circle. “We keep the menu small and then change it up all the time. It’s really fun to have bosses that love that stuff,” Hood said. “The idea of the food is a coastal tavern, and the idea of a tavern is not pretentious, super approachable … for everyone.”

Williams duo a Charleston Grill fixture since 1996

Lost Tribe will create magic at the Pour House Local swamp-rock group Lost Tribe will return to the Pour House deck stage July 22, bringing with it a set list brimming with new original songs, including “Poison Pill,” “Old Elijah” and “Juke Joint.” The band, fronted by lead singer Allison Forbes, possesses a bewitching blend of sounds: part Southern-rock, part blues — with a touch of transcendent psychedelia. The group, which also includes lead guitarist Seamus Gillen, bassist Matt Goodrich and drummer Jason Benton, is ready to, as Forbes put it, “create magic and pull magic from the crowd” on a stage that has meant so much to the band over the years. —Kate Bryan

By Vincent Harris There are musicians with regular weekly gigs, and then, there is Bob Williams. He’s played at the Charleston Grill Sunday nights since 1996. That’s right; for 25 years, Williams has played his classical guitar at Charleston Grill on Sunday nights. For 20 of those years, he’s been accompanied by his son Michael on violin. “It started with me playing at the Palmetto Cafe years ago, when I first moved here,” Bob Williams said. “I was playing for a seafood buffet that they had on weekends. They were making a change at the Grill on Sunday nights and the manager heard me and said, ‘Let’s get Bob over here.’ So I moved from the Palmetto over to the Grill.” When he first started playing, Bob did jazz standards, playing solo and slowly building a loyal following with his tasteful-buttasty style. “At that time, the Sunday nights were laid-back and certainly not the large crowds we have today,” he said. “It was known as the easier, slower night, so me playing solo fit. And of course, I played the style that the Grill was known for, playing jazz standards and nice restaurant background music. It fit very well in there.” After five years or so, Williams decided to bring his son Michael, then in the 10th grade, onstage to sit in for a night. At least, that I’m never was the original plan. “He played pretty good, and I bored with thought it would be kind of nice,” it; I’m always Williams said. “I brought him in one night on violin, and everybody developing new started clapping and the manager said, ‘Bring that kid back in here!’ arrangements. I didn’t expect that. I thought it It stays fresh, would be kind of a nice thing to do one night, and he’s been there so I don’t see with me [for] 20 years.” stopping.” These days, though, you’re just as likely to hear the Bob —Bob Williams Williams Duo play a Red Hot Chili Peppers song as you are a classic Sinatra tune. “Well, things have changed in 25 years, right?” Bob said. “Back when I started, this was in the days of what I call ‘basic restaurant jazz’ being played in the area, and the Charleston Grill certainly had been known for legendary quality jazz music down through the years. Then we started incorporating some of the popular songs and songs that a lot of the people at the Grill grew up with.” Once they started playing both standards and hits, the floodgates opened for the duo — at the Charleston Grill and around town. “Before long the staff would come up and say, ‘Hey, here’s a list, I want you to try to learn some of these.’ So we started shifting to a mix of renditions of popular songs. We’re on classical instruments, so it comes up very refined. Then brides and wedding planners started coming to us from all over the place saying, ‘I want you guys to play because I want some contemporary songs.’ ”

Lost Cosmonauts will return to rock the Tin Roof

Ashley Rose Stanol

Some of the big names Bob Williams said he has played for include Bill Murray, Pharrell and Saudi Arabian royalty Over 25 years and more than a thousand gigs, you meet a lot of people. But there are a few folks that stand out to Williams. “We’ve got a couple from Asheville who come in regularly,” he said. “I’ll immediately go into a song or two that they like, and they feel very special coming into the Grill knowing, ‘Hey, they’re already playing my song up there.’ So it becomes a special night for certain people.” Then there are faces that are familiar to millions. “I was speaking to one of the customers, and one of the staff came up and said, ‘I just want to tell you that Bill Murray and Paul Shaffer just came in,’ ” Williams said. “They were seated at the back wall, and I said, ‘This should be good.’ I told Michael, ‘Let’s set up and do a few of our standards and then we’re gonna go into some contemporary pieces.’ And after a couple of songs, I said, ‘OK, let’s do ‘Snow’ and ‘Rosanna.’’ Which is the Chili Peppers and a Toto song.” The reaction from Shaffer and Murray was immediate. “Paul Shaffer turns around and starts looking,” Williams said. “So then a staff person came up and said, ‘Bill Murray wants you to come over and have dinner with them.’ So we took a break and went over there and sat down with Bill Murray and Paul Shaffer.” So, it’s no wonder that even after 25 years, the word “retirement” isn’t in Williams’ vocabulary. “I’ve been playing since the ’60s,” he said. “I saw (classical guitarist Andres) Segovia play at 92 years old at the Gaillard Auditorium years ago, so I see myself continuing. The music is always changing. I’m never bored with it; I’m always developing new arrangements. It stays fresh, so I don’t see stopping.”

Groovy rock band Lost Cosmonauts will headline a show at the Tin Roof July 17. The four-piece, composed of frontman Chris Patterson, bassist Todd Few, drummer Rob Fabian and guitarist Dickie Brown, has a heavy, melodic sound that infuses shoegaze elements. Local indie rock act Olive Dares the Darkness, which has been described as “the illegitimate love child of Madonna and Nine Inch Nails,” includes singer/ keyboardist Becca Darling, guitarist Mike Baum, drummer Danielle Carlson and bassist Mr. Minister. —KB

Persona La Ave assembles a full band of locals Dylan Dawkins, the multiinstrumentalist behind Persona La Ave, will play his first show at The Royal American since the prepandemic days July 16, supported by Savannah-based bands Chipper Bones and Basically Nancy. Dawkins’ eclectic work weaves funk, acoustic, experimental and ambient elements. The Persona La Ave discography is prolific and brimming with collaborations. The Persona La Ave band on July 16 will feature drummer Brett Nash, bassist Aaron Utterback of Human Resources, guitarist Paul Nederostek of Dead Swells and keyboardist Baraka, aka Geoffrey Dean. —KB

The visions of Zandrina Dunning

Ashley Rose Stanol

Artist-turned-producer Zandrina Dunning said the pandemic gave her the space and time she needed That and the chance to share her knowledge. “Knowing your worth and knowing what you deserve — I’m trying to share that information with people even when they’re just getting their start. If the talent is there and the drive is there, why not skip a few steps? If I can offer the opportunity, I’m going to spare others some of the experiences I had.” Dunning’s musical inclinations were sparked as a child, when her mom bought her records and kept their home dancing. “My eyes were always open to everything — and my heart,” Dunning said. And as a single mom, she is inspired by her daughter London’s journey in the arts. “We look up to one another. She just goes with the flow. She’s following in my footsteps.” —Chelsea Grinstead

“When you have to sit and think about the things you have going on and how you can make an impact, there’s no better time than the present,” said local singer-songwriter Zandrina Dunning, who’s been omnipresent on the scene since 2013 as a show producer with her company, the ZD Experience. It turned out, 2020 was her time to act on goals she’d written way back when. The unprecedented pause in live music gave her the space to cultivate concerts and tribute shows to serve as a balm to the city’s aching entertainment industry. She helped organize The Potluck Concert Series to stream musician showcases during the pandemic. “Everyone was doing porch concerts and giving people the opportunity to make donations. Creatives will always try to find a way to make something happen,” she said. The shows she organized at Forte Jazz Lounge in 2020 grew into the PURE Concert Series and Festival last April, benefiting Charleston’s Walk for Autism organization, which will return for its second season on Nov. 12, with soul artist Thomas Brown. Her Anita Baker tribute show last June at Charleston Music Hall will be followed by a tribute to Tina Turner Sept. 3, starring rock/soul artist Lafaye. Dunning’s passion for curating shows is derived from having come into music at a young age. “Getting into the professional music scene, I was mistreated year after year,” she said. “I wanted to show people that I wasn’t just a girl out there trying to get every gig I can — that was a huge turning point for my career: not accepting certain treatment.” As a producer, making her network accessible to other artists and exploring what works for the local market is what drives her. “For them to trust me with their careers and to be able to work with peers on that level is a beautiful thing,” she said.
