The Charleston Chronicle marks 50 years
SC ranked among worst states for millennials South Carolina was ranked the 9th worst state for millennials in a recent study conducted by WalletHub based on 34 metrics used to determine affordability, education and health, quality of life, economic health and civic engagement. No. 43 on the list, South Carolina reportedly has some of the lowest civil engagement in the country, ranked just above Alabama and just below Rhode Island. The state also received low scores in quality of life and education and health, but landed in the middle of the pack when it came to affordability and economic health. Washington, D.C., Washington state and Utah were the top three districts on the list while Mississippi, New Mexico and West Virginia took the bottom three spots. —Samantha Connors
Community newspaper’s milestone comes amid uncertainty
By Barney Blakeney
The Charleston Chronicle is celebrating a half century of being the community paper of record for local, state and national issues pertinent to concerns and issues confronting Charleston’s Black community. Retired Navy journalist James J. “Jim” French established what has become one of South Carolina’s premier publications and one of the most-esteemed Black newspapers in the country — The Charleston Chronicle — some 50 years ago, Aug. 19, 1971. French died July 31 at age 94. A Kansas City native, French moved to Charleston during the late 1960s while still in the Navy. Retiring here in 1969, French began French publishing The Chronicle two years later. French cut his teeth as a writer while still in high school, but it was in the Navy where French honed his skills. While in the military, French was a photojournalist. He also was a manager for radio and television stations on naval bases in Spain, Cuba and Puerto Rico. While serving at various naval stations around the country, French also worked part time for Black newspapers such as Detroit’s Michigan Chronicle. He eventually borrowed part of that name when establishing his own paper. A staunch advocate for civil rights and the Black community, French drew upon his experiences as a Black man coming into adulthood in an America immersed in the Jim Crow era. The son of a pool-hall operator and a domestic worker, French grew up in relative poverty as the second youngest of Tom and Anna French’s 10 children who survived infancy. In 1948, the Navy became an attractive option for young Jim, who often recalled the abhorrent smell and taste of blood while working in Kansas City slaughterhouses. But the service also presented challenges for a Black man in the early days of a formally integrated military. He began as a waiter in Annapolis. He would recall

that it was a white chief petty officer who recognized his writing abilities and made it possible for him to join the Navy press corp. That off-chance interaction would ultimately lead to French being named among the nation’s premier Black newspaper publishers. Although the paper French founded would eventually enjoy prestige and prosperity, facilitating its start was a challenge. French began publishing a paper that would become The Charleston Chronicle from the kitchen of a North Charleston apartment. He called that paper The Checkerboard, named for the black and white checkered CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Paratroopers from the 1-504th, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division assemble Aug. 14 at Joint Base Charleston in preparation to fly to Afghanistan
Charleston-based C-17s, airmen involved in Afghanistan evacuation The first images were released last week showing Charleston-based airmen preparing supplies and soldiers for transport to Afghanistan, as American military personnel mobilize to evacuate people from the war-torn nation now under Taliban control. Charleston-based Air Force personnel have been involved in operations in Afghanistan for years, but the Defense Department was tight-lipped about local involvement in the current operation in Kabul. Images published yesterday show Immediate Response Force troops from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division assembled Aug. 19 at Joint Base Charleston awaiting transport, along with Charlestonbased airmen from the 437th Aerial Port Squadron loading vehicles into a C-17 cargo jet. Paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne, based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, have been involved with securing the Kabul airport, according to the Department of Defense (DoD). As part of the military’s Immediate Response Force, the 82nd’s 1st Brigade Combat Team remains on high alert and able to mobilize worldwide within 18 hours. U.S. troops are deploying to Afghanistan after the country fell under the control of the Taliban amidst the American withdrawal from the nation after a 20-year conflict that began after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. American military personnel have been pulling out of the country for months, but
U.S. leaders admit the nation, including the capital of Kabul, fell to the Taliban faster than expected, leading to the deployment of the Immediate Response Force. Charleston-based Air Force reservist Ed Sutton, a C-17 pilot, tweeted that he was among the local personnel headed back to the Middle East, but no official word had been handed down from government officials until the photo release Aug. 18. About 20 C-17s were landing in Kabul every 24 hours, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said last Wednesday. President Joe Biden has authorized up to 6,000 military personnel in Kabul as the evacuation continues. C-17s are doing the bulk of the large-scale evacuations, with hundreds of people packing cargo bays for transport out of the country. The commercial airport in Kabul is said to be one of the only ways in or out of the capital without encountering Taliban militants. The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III jets based at Joint Base Charleston are some of the U.S. military’s biggest and most used heavy cargo aircraft, and fly routine domestic transport jobs along with strategic airdrop missions in conflict areas. It is the same type of aircraft pictured in the widely seen video showing people clinging to its landing gear, but that C-17 is not based in Charleston. —Sam Spence See more photos at charlestoncitypaper.com.
B of the lotter Week
Engineers and county officials dusted off plans for the long-running, controversial project to extend Interstate 526 last week for the public to review, and you have new chances to weigh in. State and local officials said at an Aug. 19 press conference they’re as confident as ever that the project will go through, despite years of waffling from politicians and residents over whether it’s a good idea. Here are five things you need to know about the newly revived I-526 project: • Officials are collecting comments for a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. As part of the latest public comment period, Charleston County and S.C. Department of Transportation are collecting comments to consider and incorporate into a new Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement that will lay out the expected changes that may come from the project. One public hearing is planned for Sept. 14 in West Ashley where people will be able to speak and ask questions. Two community meetings are planned Aug. 31 on Johns Island and Sept. 1 on James Island. You can find out more info, review the maps and plans, attend the public hearing virtually and submit a comment online at scdotmarkclark.com. • The plans haven’t changed much. Minor changes have been specific intersections and the proposed multiuse path that will parallel the highway. But overall, the path of the project is the same “Alternative G” that last got a major look in 2016. • There’s no price tag yet. Estimates made in 2014 put the cost of the project at between $725 million and $772 million in 2019 dollars. The county and state have allocated about $736 million for the project so far. • There’s a bike and pedestrian path. The existing I-526 loop has been criticized for its lack of pedestrian access, but existing proposals include a 12-foot “multiuse path” that engineers said would be separated from traffic along much of the extension. Some worry it still may not be wide enough. • Critics are still urging the project be scrapped. Analysts from the Coastal Conservation League directed supporters to urge the state and county to shelf the plan for good, calling it a “last-century highway project that benefits few and impacts many” in an email blast to supporters. —Sam Spence Find out more about I-526 at scdotmarkclark.com.

A downtown man stripped down to his socks and underwear during a police interaction on a public sidewalk, admitting only after being almost naked that he “probably had too much to drink.” RUNNERS UP Police found a number of pills that were presumed to be ecstasy, printed with the word Tesla, as well as the car company logo. Well, we guess it was only a matter of time before Elon Musk moved on from flamethrowers and space travel. A loss-prevention officer stopped a man from stealing nearly $800 in merchandise, including a shopping cart. The man said he had been stealing from this particular big-box store for years and that he would be back. A West Ashley man received a call from an unknown number and was crypitcally told, “They are slashing your tires again.” When the man went outside to check his truck, his tires had already been slashed.

I-526 is back: 5 things you need to know
Former SC Rep. Sellers announces new children’s book
Former S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers, who has become a fixture on cable TV news, announced today he’ll release a new children’s book, Who Are Your People?, next year. “One of my dreams has always been to write a children’s book that allowed children to see themselves in it,” Sellers said in a press release. “Who Are Your People? is a book for dreamers and comes at a critical time when learning about your history and believing in yourself is so important.” The book, illustrated by Reggie Brown, was created as a tribute to communities who come together and develop young people, remember those who came before and set the pathway for the current generation. In it, Sellers takes readers on a trip through history, “from cotton fields to sit-ins to the present day through the eyes of a young father and his children,” according to the press release. Who Are Your People? is set to release Jan. 11, 2022. Preorders are available now. —Eric Johnson

tablecloth of his wife’s kitchen table. In his early days in Charleston, French worked as an ad salesman for Charleston’s Black-formatted radio station, WPAL-AM. When it came time to create his newspaper, relationships he had as a salesman for WPAL helped get the paper off the ground. An outsider in Charleston’s intimately connected business and social circles, French won the favor and confidence of two prominent Black businessmen: Benjamin “Bennie” Brooks and his younger brother Albert Brooks. The brothers vouched for French when he sought a business loan from a local bank. Starting out as a one-man operation in a small storefront at Cannon and King streets downtown, French sold ads, gathered news, took photos, laid out and distributed his own newspaper. Committed to the credo of the Black press — to serve as advocates and informers for Black communities — French and his paper quickly earned a reputation as a voice and venue for the Black community. Naomi White, along with Mary Moultrie, was one of the first nurses to walk out of the wards at the Medical College at the beginning of the 1969 Charleston hospital strike, recalled French offered his office as a meeting place for
organizing nurses. Future Charleston city councilman and state Senator Robert Ford came to Charleston as an organizer for the United Methodist Church Black Community Developers Program working with the striking nurses. He found a home at French’s paper selling advertising. Ford’s aggressive and relentless methodology earned him a seat on Charleston City Council and ultimately, in the South Carolina Senate. He was equally aggressive as an ad salesman. The relationship was reciprocal: The paper offered Ford a platform. Another preeminent advocate for the paper was the late Rev. Fredrick Douglass Dawson, who had an unshakable sense of right and wrong. Often picketing for fairness in advertising for the paper and economic justice for the Black community, French recognized Dawson’s support and activism by naming the conference room at The Chronicle’s office on upper King Street in Dawson’s honor. The paper’s history is marked with support from local Black churches, which served as the paper’s primary distribution point when circulation was at its highest. Cornerstones of the community, the leaders included United Methodist Church ministers Frank Portee and the Rev. Willis Goodwin, Baptist minister the Revs. A.R. Blake and Ed McClain and Presbyterian minister the Rev. Robert R. Woods — all of
whom gave the paper personal support as well as that of their congregations. With French’s unique ability to identify talent that could help in the development of the paper — writers such as yours truly, Jesse Taylor, Hakim Abdul Ali, Beverly Gadsden Birch, Tony Robertson, Bob Small and various syndicated writers — the paper became a mainstay representing excellence in journalism and Black advocacy. The legacy of The Chronicle has been entrenched in a philosophy of freedom of speech. French channeled that right through The Chronicle’s pages to those who agreed with him and those who didn’t. Despite the financial hardships of pressing forward in an often hostile business environment, the paper earned recognition from the National Newspaper Publishers Association, S.C. Press Association and The Charleston Branch NAACP, among others. But after all that time, the future of the newspaper is uncertain. The newspaper’s website was online until recently, but headlines dated back more than a year. Current operators of the newspaper did not answer questions for this story. French relinquished daily control of the business in 2015 to his two grandsons, Tolbert and Damion Smalls, who were unreachable for comment for this story. They are the third generation of Frenches to work at the paper he established in 1971.

Reject I-526 extension ere we go again. County and state leaders are pushing another misguided attempt to extend Interstate 526 when there are better options. Give it a rest, guys, and spend the money better, smarter and broader. The extension’s new plan, which is almost exactly like an old plan to connect West Ashley to Johns Island and James Island, will end up costing $1 billion with Charleston County taxpayers footing a whopping part of the bill. A dozen years ago when it looked like the roadway, which has been discussed since the 1960s, would move forward, the cost was about a third of that. There’s another difference this time: The state’s financial commitment is capped. If there are cost overruns — and there are always overruns — county taxpayers will be holding what could be a very large bag. Extending the interstate is a bad idea for multiple reasons, including what the Coastal Conservation League rightly describes as a “last-century highway project that benefits few and impacts many.” First, the extended roadway — which isn’t even an interstate, but a parkway — will open up Johns Island to even more development. That quickly will clog the road making traffic just as bad — or worse — than it is now. Second are various environmental concerns: Noise, wetland destruction, pollution and more. Third is the simple notion that the billion-dollar bucket of money could be redirected to be used in
multiple smarter ways to improve our quality of life. For example, highway officials could build a flyover to Johns Island off U.S. Highway 17 to speed traffic. Or, instead of building bigger, wider roads that studies show do not reduce congestion, S.C.’s highway-happy DOT can help double down on expanding transportation alternatives to complement the game-changing bus rapid transit project in the works down Rivers Avenue. And more than anything, they could spend money on where we know now it’s eventually going to be needed — to mitigate future flooding impacts all over the county. Just look around in your neighborhood and compare how waters are higher in bad storms than they were just a few years ago. It’s not going to get better. So if we want to keep living here, we need to adapt. And that costs money to the magnitude of what it would cost to extend the interstate about 10 miles. Scrap the project. Don’t sign a blank check on our future. Throw away the same drawing board that’s been used for years by waffling county and state officials. Road builders always want to build more roads. This time, let’s do something different. Regardless of whether you agree with us, let public officials know where you stand on the extension. The public comment period is open until Oct. 15. You can learn more online (scdotmarkclark.com) and have your say there, or you can attend any of three public meetings — Aug. 31 on Johns Island, Sept. 1 on James Island and Sept. 14 in West Ashley.

VaLind a Miller,
South Carolinians should expect civility, not promote incivility By Andy Brack Politics has always been an occasionally nasty business. Alexander Hamilton died in an 1804 duel with Aaron Burr. A South Carolina congressman caned and nearly killed a Massachusetts senator in 1856 over slavery. A mob of zealots upset by presidential election results stormed the U.S. Capitol earlier this year in an attack that led to five deaths. Fortunately in America, these bloody internal conflicts aren’t the norm. Unfortunately, today’s polarized and charged political environment is making it harder for leaders to govern — particularly when the leaders seem to be more worried about the next election than governing. Just look at local meetings that should be routine. Political party meetings are being hijacked more often by partisans who want to wrest control of their faction from another. In the S.C. General Assembly, there’s far less personal interaction among elected officials on different sides of the aisle, leading to rancor and lack of trust. And in Charleston this week, a city council meeting over
an equity report and mask mandate turned into a five-hour embarrassment of emotional outbursts. The Charleston meeting led four state officials to make a statement decrying “appalling” behavior directed at doctors and health professionals who spoke about the need for more masking to protect the community from the spread of COVID-19. “We can disagree with each other without losing our civility,” said state Sen. Marlon Kimpson and Reps. J.A. Moore, Marvin Pendarvis and Deon Tedder, all Charleston Democrats. “Shouting insults and going so far as to spit on someone who has a different view than you is barbaric and disgusting. “We need to lift up doctors and healthcare professionals in our community. We need to surround them with support and show our appreciation for the sacrifices they’ve made throughout this pandemic.” Unfortunately, we live in times of incivility. We all need to chill out and take a breath. Wasn’t there someone long ago who said, “Love thy neighbor as thyself?” Two former state senators on different sides of the aisle say civility is a key to getting things done.

emerges is something a little bit better for everyone. “Columbia’s just becoming a mini-version of Washington in a lot of respects,” said Larry Martin of Pickens, a Republican who served in the state House and Senate from 1991 to 2016. “It’s just harder and harder for folks to get along.” He urged newly-elected officials to try to get to know their colleagues in other parties to develop personal relationships and build trust. Former state Sen. Phil Leventis, D-Sumter, reflected that doctors spend thousands of hours learning their profession and gaining expertise. But in politics, too many people run roughshod over learning issues and developing the expertise to participate intelligently in public debate. One thing that would help, Leventis said, is if people would focus less on the liberties offered to citizens and more on their responsibilities as citizens. “They get so hopped up about their liberties that they forget what their obligations are to the system and the process.” Hear, hear.

Why these locals want you to get the vaccine Summerville couple ‘living proof’ vaccine works By Skyler Baldwin
ummerville resident Steven Cogley and his wife Cynthia both came down with COVID in April last year, just when things started to get serious, he said. She couldn’t breath and was ultimately hospitalized for 10 days, unsure of what the future held. Even after Cynthia’s eventual recovery, her breathing problems persisted for months. And it was only after her long recovery that vaccines became widely available. “Of course, everybody had that, ‘Oh, I don’t want to get that,’ sort of attitude,” Steven Cogley said. The idea of an experimental vaccine gave him pause — he wasn’t the only one. “I didn’t want to grow a third leg or an arm,” he joked. “I didn’t want to be a part of one of those — 20 years from now — commercials: ‘If you or a loved one …’ ” But remembering what his wife went through, and the fear he felt when she was in the hospital, he caved to her advice. “She talked me into it, and we both got the vaccine.” Shortly after getting the stick, Cogley’s wife left for a trip with family members,
Seeing what my wife went through last year in the hospital — I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.” —Steven Cogley
four of whom had not yet been vaccinated. All four ended up contracting COVID, while Cynthia, despite an eight-hour car ride with them, remained COVID-free. Steven Cogley was shocked. “That made me a believer right there,” he said. Cogley said after that he made a point to tell his friends and family to go and get the vaccine because it works. “Seeing what my wife went through last year in the hospital — I wouldn’t wish that on anyone,” he said. “It’s truly a frightening thing — to be in the hospital by yourself not knowing whether you’re going to live or die. If something as simple as a vaccine would prevent that, just do it. We’re living proof that it works.”

One-time vaccine skeptics lining up for their shots By Samantha Connors
ottie’s Pharmacy on James Island has seen a noticeable increase in vaccine appointments and COVID-19 testing over the last several weeks. Prior to the recent rise in cases, Dottie’s Pharmacy was doing about five vaccine appointments per day — now it’s up to around 40. “We have a mobile lab in our parking lot, which has enabled us to do rapid COVID testing and PCR testing since the beginning of the pandemic,” said owner Dottie Farfone. “The number of people coming for COVID tests dropped down for a while obviously, but now we’re back to equal numbers of tests per day, if not more than we were doing during the height of 2020.” Aside from testing services, Dottie’s Pharmacy also offers all three vaccines currently available. To encourage vaccinations, they’ve partnered with businesses, homeless shelters and local organizations, like James Island Outreach and Barrier Island Clinic, bringing their mobile operation on-site. For some, the issue of getting vaccinated is simply more about scheduling. People with jobs and children may have a difficult time finding opportunities to get the shot during business hours, which is why Farfone says they’ve been adamant about mobile vaccine clinics at people’s place of work, making it more convenient for those with busy schedules. She says many com-

panies are even offering incentives to their employees, like extra vacation days, if they get vaccinated. For others, the adversity to vaccines has more to do with uncertainty about potential long-term side effects. “Mostly it was people waiting to see what kind of effects that other people were going to have from the vaccines,” said Farfone. But she encourages people who are fearful of adverse reactions to talk to their pharmacists on staff. “Pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare providers in our country,” she said. “If you have questions about it, we’re here to answer them, and we’re not going to be judgmental.” Farfone believes more people who were previously skeptical will feel more comfortable getting the stick now that the Pfizer vaccine is fully FDA-approved. “We just want to get as many vaccines in as many people as we can to try and end this pandemic,” she said.

North Charleston doctor offers vaccine facts and guiding hand By Skyler Baldwin
CP: For so-called “breakthrough cases,” overall, that figure is somewhere closer to three-quarters of patients not fully vaccinated — is that what you’re seeing? Strange: I’m an ICU physician, so recognize that most of the breakthrough cases of people partially or fully vaccinated tend to be mild and therefore don’t end up being in the hospital. So, the patients that make it to the ICU and therefore are at risk of losing their lives, are individuals that didn’t get vaccinated, for the most part.
CP: By the time patients see you in the ICU, how long have they been admitted? Strange: The average patient has had symptoms about five days by the time they make it to the ICU. Just anecdotally, there was one girl that came into Trident hospital yesterday for the first day and died last night with her COVID pneumonia. So it can happen very quickly, or it can be a little bit more imbulent.
reputation of respect and trust among the community. He said all it takes is an honest discussion with someone you trust, and for a lot of younger people today, that can be the biggest hurdle — relationships with health care providers are rarer today than they used to be, he said. From sitting in barbershops and answering questions from curious acquaintances to scheduled appearances on radio shows and at public demonstrations, Bell is always ready to share the power of vaccines. He also gave a short presentation Aug. 21 at MUSC busting some common myths. “You need to be very, very upfront, and you need to let people know you’re aware of the distrust that has gone on for decades — centuries even — and then you need to pivot from that and try to explain, in a way people can understand, why you trust the vaccine.”
Dr. Thaddeus Bell, a private physician in North Charleston, makes radio appearances from a small studio at his office
CP: When you interact with COVID patients, what’s their outlook on the disease now that they’ve been affected by it personally? Strange: We get to talk to the survivors, and they are routinely changing their tune. And what we try and help them focus on is to let them head back out into the community with a message they can spread to their friends and family about vaccination. There have been some individuals that have taken it really, in a very positive way, to recognize that, “Yeah, I wish I’d done this before,” “I was just afraid before because of all the side effects that I hear in the news,” and those are the easiest people to convert. And then there are others that are anti-vaxxers in a much more strong way, and they’re much more difficult to convert. And yet, some of them do. CP: What keeps you going? Strange: We’ve had five pregnant patients in our ICU over the past two weeks at MUSC. And three of them have had C-sections and are still alive. Two of them still are carrying their babies and are still alive. We have a 100% success rate of pulling them through. They wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for us. Editor’s note: Responses have been edited for clarity.
r. Thaddeus Bell, a North Charleston private practice doctor, has heard just about every myth and untruth there has been to share regarding the coronavirus and the vaccine in his interactions with patients and other medical advocacy groups in the Lowcountry. Figures showed the Black community in particular seemed far more hesitant to receive the vaccine or seek other treatment for COVID symptoms, especially early on. Bell points to a historical mistrust of medicine due to cruel pasts regarding poor treatment of minorities at the hands of medical professionals. On top of that, more recent history has also served to sow division. “We had a lot of misinformation being given about the vaccine, and all the other social issues Black people were dealing with at the time — Black Lives Matter, George Floyd, everything — all of this kind of came to a head and caused a lot of mistrust among African Americans,” he explained. Social media as well, he continued, has not been a friend to the discussion. “It has propagated a lot of myths and untruths regarding the vaccine,” he said. Some people he has spoken to believed the vaccine was just a way for the government to control or directly harm the Black community, a fear Bell said is not baseless when you look at the historical context. “As it turns out, all of it was untrue,” Bell said. Bell said he has had great success leading people out of these pits of uncertainty, particularly because he has garnered a
City Paper: What is the state of things right now at MUSC? Dr. Charlie Strange: On a given day, we run numbers of ICU beds that are full most of the time, but the difference is that more than half of our ICU beds are full of previously unvaccinated COVID patients. So with 100 ICU beds, that means more than 50 of them are filled with patients that, with the vaccination, probably wouldn’t have been there.

SAPC Studios is new voice in music ed chorus By Michael Smallwood SAPC Studios is the latest player to strike up the band in the local music education market, joining a series of new outlets for artistic expression in the area. “Music has been a passion of mine my whole life,” said Heather Reed, director of music for St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and the founder of SAPC Studios. “[At] 4 years old, I started singing and performing, and it’s just been the love of my life ever since. A few years ago, coming out of being a wedding planner, I had what you might call an epiphany.” That epiphany was to teach music. After earning a degree in music education from Charleston Southern University, Reed got the job directing music at St. Andrews but felt she could be doing more. “We’ve been working through the pandemic on, ‘how do we connect with our community? How do we do more than just live within the confines of just the church building? How do we reach beyond that?’” SAPC Studios was born out of that brainstorm. Launched earlier this year, the school uses a flexible schedule to find the best possible learning time for its students. Teachers work directly with families to find a perfect time for lessons. The focus is on private lessons that cater to the needs of each individual learner, Keller James Photography instead of a rigid program.

Mabel Mae’s online bakery catering to new moms
Charleston Grill closing temporarily with staff shortage Fine dining restaurant Charleston Grill announced a temporary closure last week, citing local labor shortages as the reasoning behind the decision. The Grill plans to reopen Sept. 1, a spokesperson confirmed to the City Paper. “Due to an ongoing shortage of highly trained and experienced staff, we have taken the decision to temporarily close the restaurant for the month of August,” the restaurant — which closed March 2020-October 2020 due to the pandemic — said in a statement. “Despite our strong desire to continue with our service, we cannot compromise on the quality that our valuable guests have come to expect from us.” The Charleston Grill reservation team has contacted guests affected by the closure and will announce a reopening date in the coming weeks. —Parker Milner

Mabel Mae’s Bakery owner Niki Dube turned baking into a full-time gig during the pandemic, but her 13-month old company is different from the countless small-batch bakeries that popped up over the last year and a half. Sure, she sells an assortment of dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan baked goods, cakes and bars — and they’re delicious — but what really sets Mabel Mae’s apart is its healthy snacks for new mothers. “Another component that I do is lactation treats for new moms because I struggled in the beginning,” Dube said. “I made my own lactation treats because everything on the market right now is just full of inflammatories and junk that new moms don’t need.” Dube, who launched Mabel Mae’s in July 2020, specializes in those lactation treats, along with healthy versions of blueberry lemon bars, scones, cinnamon buns, muffins, cookies and more. All products are made in a commissary kitchen and can be purchased online. “Treats and healthy living are two of my favorite things, and kind of that homage to a balance is what I wanted to focus on,” said Dube, who launched her company shortly after the birth Dube of her daughter, Mabel, and the death of her mother, Mae. “I made a decision that I was either going to crumble from everything happening or I was really going to challenge myself and, do something that my mom would want to do.” “She raised us very holistically, and she always baked our cookies with applesauce,” said Dube of her mother, who taught her how to bake. “She taught me to blend health and treats together.” Since first popping up at the Holy City Farmers Market last summer, where she still sets up shop every Wednesday afternoon, Dube has expanded her operation by
Mount Pleasant gastropub opens Sept. 1
Mabel Mae’s sells vegan, gluten-free goods and lactation treats for new moms getting her products into Hustle Smoothie Bar in Mount Pleasant Towne Center. She hopes to show that “whether you have food sensitivities [and] allergies or not, natural, gluten-free and vegan treats can taste and feel as indulgent as any other dessert out there,” she said. While Dube’s product line now runs the gamut, her vision for Mabel Mae’s started with her lactation treats, made using “nutrient-dense foods.” Online and at Hustle, Dube sells lactation cookies, white fudge caramel lactation bars, golden milk brownies and blueberry cashew granola, all of which are geared toward feeding new moms. According to Dube, the lactation products are “essentially treats that are full of galactogogues, and galactogogues are natural foods that help boost, increase and
maintain breast milk production.” “Whether they are struggling with production or they just want something that will nourish themselves, that’s what I aim to give them because new moms are so hungry all the time and the treats that I provide are full of protein and fiber,” she said. While she can’t promise results, Dube said she’s received positive feedback from new mothers and other customers. “So far, all of the moms I’ve worked with have seen production increases, which makes me so happy,” Dube said. “I’ve been working at this really hard, so I’m just so grateful that all corners of Charleston seem to be truly ready just to accept gluten-free and vegan into their lives.” For more information or to place an order, visit mabelmaes.com.
Mount Pleasant gastropub Bull & Finch will open Sept. 1 at 1710 Shoremeade Road, offering beer battered fish and chips, braised short ribs, duck fat fries and more from executive chef Brandon Buck.

East Bay Deli continues to expand 20-years later By Parker Milner Lowcountry residents know where to go when they want a hearty, made-to-order sandwich reminiscent of what you’ll find at a New York deli. With favorites like “The Carolina” and “The Club Calhoun,” East Bay Deli has become a household name in South Carolina since opening its first store Sept. 11, 2001 at 334 East Bay St. Now with 11 shops in the Charleston and Columbia markets, founders Daniel Jaicks, Charles Lee Jr. and marketing director Joanna Jaicks are approaching their 20th anniversary in September with plans for more growth. The City Paper caught up with Joanna Jaicks to hear more about what the last two decades have been like at the successful sandwich shop. City Paper: What do you think made East Bay Deli a success early on? Joanna Jaicks: You had your sub shops, but there were no actual delis. It did kind of have a lot to do with the fact that no one else was really doing that. My husband, being from New York originally, he knows what real delis are like, and there’s a significant portion of people from the North that move down to this area. He just kind of felt like that was a missing component that we could put down here that could have a little bit of a Southern flair.
CP: How much has the menu changed in the last 20 years? JJ: We have a couple of the original menus, and we have things on that menu

East Bay Deli has expanded to 11 locations since its 2001 opening that we still have to this day. Like “The Citadel”, which is our No. 1 selling sandwich, and “The Chief Reuben.” Those have been on our menu from the beginning, and then, obviously, the menu has grown since then. CP: Day one must have been even more memorable given the tragedy that occurred. What do you remember about that day? JJ: My husband said what he remembers is that Muzak, which was the music system we used when we first opened, switched over to play the national anthem, and he had never heard them do anything like that before. I actually worked at the deli for a few months to try to get it off the ground, and of course, that was a very insane and crazy day. What I remember most is people coming in and everyone seemed dazed. We had a radio playing because we didn’t have TVs yet and everyone was listening for updates.
CP: How did the COVID-19 pandemic impact East Bay Deli? JJ: We’re really blessed because we already had a website — we’ve had it for years — and we already had online ordering in place and delivery. I know that a lot of places were scrambling because they didn’t have a lot of that setup and we did, so we basically just continued on. The only thing we had to do that was easy to implement was just adding curbside, so we really didn’t miss a beat.

CP: Future plans? JJ: The plan is to continue to add stores. I don’t know how many that will be, but they do plan on opening some more. I think we’re looking at one or two more sort of in the Charleston area, and eventually, we might look upstate in Greenville. We don’t want it to be like a Walgreens or something where there’s one on every corner, but we have sort of our own process of looking at areas.
CP: After opening the newest East Bay Deli in Cayce, S.C., in June, there are now 11 locations. How has this changed operations? JJ: Because of the size that we have expanded to, and now because we’re in two different markets, we’ve grown to the point where we have a director of operations for each market. We have an area supervisor for each market as well, and they oversee the management and everything. It’s gotten to the point where we had to add those roles that are over the [store] general managers.
The plan is to continue to add stores. I don’t know how many that will be, but they do plan on opening some more.”
CP: When did expansion become part of the conversation? JJ: Originally when we opened up the first store, there were no plans to have more than one. You just don’t know how it’s going to go. A few years in, we were doing well enough with the first one to the point where we were like maybe we should do a second one. And we did; it was actually on Market Street. We had that open for a couple of years, but that one did not do well because there was no parking. So we closed that one, but then we opened up our third one in North Charleston in 2006 or 2007. We were getting ready to open one in Mount Pleasant, and we closed that second one in downtown Charleston, and we transferred all those assets to the Mount Pleasant store.

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries mythologist Joseph Campbell advised us to love our fate. He said we should tell ourselves, “Whatever my fate is, this is what I need.” Even if an event seems inconvenient or disruptive, we treat it as an opportunity, as an interesting challenge. “If you bring love to that moment, not discouragement,” Campbell said, “you will find the strength.” Campbell concludes that any detour or disarray you can learn from “is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege!” Few signs of the zodiac are inclined to enthusiastically adopt such an approach, but you Aries folks are most likely to do so. Now is an especially favorable time to use it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The brilliant Taurus dancer and choreographer Martha Graham spoke of “a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action,” adding that “there is only one of you in all time.” She added, “It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” But even if you do this very well, Graham said, you will nevertheless always feel “a divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest” that will fuel you. This is the perfect message for you Tauruses to embrace in the coming weeks. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There’s growing scientific evidence that we make ourselves stupid by complaining too much — or even by listening to other people complain a lot. Excessive negative thoughts drain energy from our hippocampus, a part of our brain that’s essential to problem-solving. This doesn’t mean, of course, that we should avoid dealing with difficult issues. But it does suggest we should be discerning about how many disturbing and depressing ideas we entertain. According to my reading of the omens, all this will be especially useful advice for you in the coming weeks. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your brain contains one hundred billion nerve cells. Each cell has the potential to be linked with tens of thousands of others. And they are always busy. Typically, your grey matter makes a million new connections every second. But I suspect your number of connections will increase even beyond that in the coming weeks. Your most complex organ will be working with greater intensity than usual. Will that be a bad thing or a good thing? It depends on whether you formulate an intention to channel your intelligence into wise analysis about important matters — and not waste it in careless fussing about trivial details. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “You should have a sticky soul,” counsels author Elizabeth Berg. “The act of continually taking things in should be as much a part of you as your hair color.” I especially endorse that attitude for you during the next four weeks, Leo. Your task is to make yourself extra magnetic for all the perceptions, experiences, ideas, connections, and resources you need most. By September 23, I suspect you will have gained an infusion of extra ballast and gravitas. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “I sing like the nightingale whose melody is crowded in the too narrow passage of her throat,” wrote author Virginia Woolf. That was an insulting curse for her to fling at herself. I disapprove of such behavior — especially for you in the coming weeks. If you hope to be in alignment with cosmic rhythms, don’t you dare say nasty things about yourself, even in the privacy of your own thoughts. In fact, please focus on the exact opposite: flinging praise and appreciation and compliments at yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The blogger at www-wlw.tumblr.com says the following are the top tender actions. 1. Fastening clothes or jewelry for your companion. 2. Letting them rest their head on your shoulder. 3. Idly playing with their hands. 4. Brushing a leaf out of their hair. 5. Locking pinkies. 6. Rubbing their back when you embrace. 7. Both of you wearing an item that belongs to the other. Dear Libra, I hope you will employ these tender actions with greater frequency than usual in the coming weeks, Libra. Why? In my astrological opinion, it’s a

ripe time to boost your Affection Quotient with the allies you care for the most. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Naturalist Henry David Thoreau wrote in his journal, “I feel slightly complimented when nature condescends to make use of me without my knowledge — as when I help scatter her seeds in my walk — or carry burs and cockles on my clothes from field to field. I feel as though I had done something for the commonweal.” I mention this, Scorpio, because the coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to carry out good deeds and helpful transformations in nature’s behalf. Your ability to collaborate benevolently with plants and animals and elemental forces will be at a peak. So will your knack for creating interesting connections between yourself and all wild things. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have never heard of Sagittarian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). At age 16, she experienced a splash of acclaim with a show in Paris. Famous artists Pablo Picasso, Henry Matisse, and George Braques came. They drew inspiration from Mahieddine’s innovative use of color, elements from her Algerian heritage, and her dream-like images. Picasso even invited her to work with him, exulting in the fresh perspectives she ignited. But her art never received the full credit it warranted. In accordance with astrological omens, this horoscope is a small way of providing her with the recognition and appreciation she deserves. It also authorizes you to go out and get the recognition and appreciation you deserve but have not yet fully received. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “Who knows what is unfolding on the other side of each hour?” asked Capricorn poet Juan Ramón Jiménez (translated by Capricorn poet Robert Bly). “How many times the sunrise was there, behind a mountain. How many times the brilliant cloud piling up far off was already a golden body full of thunder!” Your assignment, Capricorn, is to imagine what is unfolding just beyond your perception and understanding. But here’s the twist: You must steer your mind away from inclinations to indulge in fear. You must imagine that the events in the works are beautiful, interesting, or redemptive. If you’re not willing to do that, skip the exercise altogether. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup,” wrote author Wendell Berry. I mostly agree with that sentiment, although I will also put in a good word for certain kinds of arguments. There are moments when it’s crucial for your psychological and spiritual health that you initiate a conversation about delicate issues that might lead to a dispute. However, I don’t think this is one of those times, Aquarius. In my astrological opinion, picking dew-wet red berries is far more sensible than any argument. For further inspiration, read this testimony from actor Natasha Lyonne: “I definitely would rather take a nap than get angry.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): For painter Vincent van Gogh, love wasn’t primarily a sentimental feeling. Nor was it an unfocused generalized wish for health and happiness in those he cared for. Rather, he wrote, “You must love with a high, serious, intimate sympathy, with a will, with intelligence.” His love was alert, acute, active, and energized. It was animated with a determination to be resourceful and ingenious in nurturing the beloved. For van Gogh, love was always in action, forever moving toward ever-fresh engagement. In service to intimacy, he said, “You must always seek to know more thoroughly, better, and more.” I hope you’ll make these meditations a top priority during the next seven weeks. Homework. This is what I do to earn a living. Let me know what you do. Newsletter@ FreeWillAstrology.com

Musical theory with Americana artist
Jordan Igoe By Chelsea Grinstead It’s hard to say what music first inspired soulful singer-songwriter Jordan Igoe, but it was her family that instilled in her the tendency to use instruments to process life. She comes from a musical family — her mom loved to play pop and classical music on the piano, and her grandfather was a concert pianist. She started writing songs when she was about 15 — after watching her older sister Jessica Daisi play guitar and compose. Her first song was a therapeutic exercise called “Father Oh Father” that sprang from her efforts to journal her emotional journeys, including the one with her dad. Her initial musical inclinations like being in guitar club at school and leading worship at church have developed into artistic instincts 20 years in the making. A lot of the time her songwriting starts with a melody, and when she starts playing something she likes on the piano or guitar, the words will follow. Asked to describe her sound, Igoe told the City Paper, “There’s a little bit of blues and a lot of old country.” Although she’s been surrounded by creative people both male and female, she does realize the gap that exists in the music Joseph Nienstedt industry for women performers. “I feel like a lot of women are Jordan Igoe will play Awendaw Green Sept. 15, more emotionally driven, and men are more ambition driven. with upcoming performances with psych-folk group With girls, you have to have a baseline — a certain amount of belief in yourself.” It all comes down to confidence. She thinks it’s Susto’s Justin Osborne been part of our culture and society for men to be more prevalent For Igoe, her sonic evolution has come in music, but that it is changing. “I feel women are getting more not only from working with others, but and more independent.” Though she bills as Jordan Igoe, she had a core because it is inevitable. “I’ve read a lot of group of musicians that have stuck with her, first and research on songwriters and composers, and foremost her sister, followed by pedal steel guitarist the way that their writing shifts through a Charlie Thompson, guitarist Josh Roberts and bassist lifetime is all similar even though they are Corey Stephens. from drastically different genres of music.

Pulse Fabulist FM drops new alternative album Fabulist FM, aka singer/guitarist John Haas, dropped Mansions from Matchsticks, eight tracks he describes as “Talking Heads meets Foo Fighters with a healthy dose of synth pop.” His first foray as Fabulist FM was back in 2018 with Roots Cracked, produced primarily on an iPad. Between playing with swamp rock band Rusted Revolution and performing solo acoustic sets around town, he was inspired to start writing the songs that ended up on the new album. “I grew up listening to punk, new wave and alternative, and I bring that into my music.” —Chelsea Grinstead
Catch Benz.Birdz. at Tin Roof Multi instrumentalist Ben McCoy is Benz.Birdz., and he’s playing Tin Roof with Mike Brown, Bishop, K. Rich and Romeo Walcott Thursday. His sound has been called funhouse rock. “Someone also said ‘Ben Folds, but shoegaze,’” he quipped. McCoy has been under the moniker Benz.Birdz. for about three years, but he’s been making music for himself and with other projects much longer — like producing and engineering for socially conscious experimental hip-hop act Bishop, who will share the stage with him Thursday. The 8 p.m. show at Tin Roof in West Ashley is $10 at the door. —CG

Tucked next to a Vanderhorst Street courtyard just off King Street, Kudu Coffee & Craft Beer is the place to stop if you need a recharge or an adult beverage (or a delicious locally made pastry or sandwich). In 2014, Kudu stepped up its game, offering 20 beers on tap with the occasional kombucha and local soda and pouring cask-conditioned beer from a hand-pumped engine. And while you won’t find Wi-Fi, you will find a nice wine selection. General manager Andrew Mauldin surveyed the staff to put together a Kudu Top 5 Playlist. Here’s what the team came up with: “9 to 5” - Dolly Parton “Back Pocket” - Vulfpeck “Heaven or Las Vegas” - Cocteau Twins “Homerun” - Nice as F**k “Come on Home” - Lijadu Sisters
Local hip-hop artist Anfernee is on the up and up “I just want people to love each other and have a good time listening to my music,” said local hip-hop artist Anfernee. “That’s always the goal, no matter what genre I’m pursuing or what style. Whatever people want to call it — it’s just to make people feel something.” The emotional component of sound occurred to him as a kid when he was mesmerized by a seemingly mundane TV advertisement. “I saw a Burger King commercial with Minnie Riperton’s ‘Loving You,’ and I knew at that moment that I wanted to do that, that I wanted to sing. That’s when I was like, ‘Okay, I want people to feel what I’m feeling.’ ” Through a childhood interest in poetry, he discovered that he wanted to do more than just put words on a page waiting to be read. His first EP, The Conspiracy, was released in 2016, and that year he opened for Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan at Columbia’s Spring Out Music Festival. He followed up with a dance-centric collaborative album with French electronic duo Adamandy, Nice, Pt. 2 in 2017 and with a darker, more introspective record, H.Art, in 2020. In April 2019, Anfernee was on the bill at Cultura Festival, the Royal American event produced by Charleston artist Matt Monday to showcase the city’s burgeoning rap scene. “We were all trying to break the cusp of being local artists and get to bigger media,” he said. Earlier this year he opened for Riff Raff at The Main Course in Columbia. He focused on fine-tuning his writing craft when the pandemic set everything back last year, and he started an internship at Charleston’s Truphonic Studios to learn the ins and outs of the industry. With additional singles and music videos in the wings, he has planned a Sept. 10 show at Pour House with fellow rapper Tyrie. Anfernee intends for his blossoming
Anfernee has put out three albums so far and plans to head up his Sept. 10 show at Pour House with new releases success in the scene to serve as a symbol of perseverance to anyone struggling to make art as a way of life. “I was literally homeless, and I made it all the way to where I am now,” he said. “I just want people to know that as far deep down you are in the trenches, there is somebody who has been there and understands. I feel you, and I want you to know that I relate to you, and we are in this together. We’re all still climbing trying to get to the top. If I got to this point ... then you can do whatever you put your mind to.” —Kate Bryan
