Rundown Charleston City Council takes step to reinstate mask mandate

Charleston Pro Bono attorney Nicole Paluzzi said the number of people in Charleston seeking eviction aid may triple in 2021

Thousands facing eviction after moratorium ends By Skyler Baldwin

News 09.22.2021

Housing services, nonprofit organizations and advocacy groups throughout South Carolina are dealing with staggering numbers of renters facing potential eviction after the end of a moratorium that had kept thousands safely housed through financial hardships levied by the pandemic. “We’re seeing increases across the board — everyone who has any sort of stake in housing, supporting housing, increasing inventory, anything, everybody is seeing an increase,” said Charleston Pro Bono attorney Nicole Paluzzi. “It’s almost all related to eviction for nonpayment of rent or rental assistance.” Before the pandemic and subsequent eviction moratorium, South Carolina was already deeply entrenched in a housing crisis — evicting more tenants per capita than any other state from 2000-2016, according to a study by Eviction Lab. And now, landlords have the green light to let off the brakes. Roughly 739,067 rental households in S.C. are behind on rent or report low confidence in ability to pay rent, with 107,652 households reporting no confidence at all

We knew it was coming, and when it came, it hit hard.” —Nicole Paluzzi

as of Sept. 17, according to U.S. Census Pulse data. Of renters behind on payments, 152,612 reported they would likely be evicted within the next two months.

Assistance available in SC

The South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority (S.C. Housing) has distributed more than $19 million in rental assistance through its SC Stay Plus program, launched in May in preparation for the end of the initial eviction moratorium. And plenty more is still available, with $272 million allotted to the program by the U.S. Department of Treasury. “Our program, and others like it ... will help people go back and pay that past-due rent, even if they’ve already been evicted,” said S.C. Housing chief communications officer Chris Winston. “Otherwise, it’s almost impossible to find safe housing anywhere else.” The SC Stay Plus program had given money to more than 4,000 households in the state as of Sept. 9, Winston said. Separate programs funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development had distributed an additional $10 million. The state General Assembly tasked S.C. Housing as the administrator of the state and federal programs, but counties with populations over 200,000 can apply to run separate local programs. Charleston and Berkeley counties both operate local programs. Charleston’s Emergency Rental

Assistance Program (ERAP) was awarded $12.4 million from the U.S. Treasury to stabilize housing in the county. Renters in need of assistance can fill out applications online, and assistance provided by S.C. Housing’s averages about $4,000 per household. “Our focus is on people who may be at risk now who are being evicted,” Winston said. “And you can self-attest all of those items. If you’ve been impacted by COVID financially, and you say you’re at risk of being evicted, we don’t require any sort of documentation for that anymore. We want people to get their applications in.” Charleston County’s ERAP applications are also available online, or renters can call (855) 452-5374 for help.

Too little, too late, sometimes Despite millions of dollars available in financial assistance, some couldn’t get enough to cover their debts — others sought help too late. Paluzzi, who works closely with the Charleston Housing Court to keep tenants in homes, said she is seeing numbers roughly consistent with the previous peak, seen in January. “We knew it was coming, and when it came, it hit hard,” she said. Even with as much outreach and information sharing as possible, Paluzzi said, not everyone was able to avoid an eviction notice. “There are

Charleston City Council passed a citywide mask mandate up for first reading during its Sept. 14 council meeting. The mandate would require residents to mask up when indoors around other people, with some exceptions. The measure passed 10-3, with Councilmen Kevin Shealy, Karl Brady and Harry Griffin voting against. “I don’t love the fact that we’re asked to do this. I don’t love the fact I have to vote for it,” said Councilman Mike Seekings. “But I do like the fact that we can do a very small part on getting us back on the road of recovery.” Griffin voiced concerns that the language included in the measure set dangerous precedent and allowed for abuse of penalties levied against those who do not abide by the mandate. Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg clarified that as a first reading, no such fines would be levied against anyone until it passes a second and third reading, likely at its Sept. 28 meeting. The measure will likely be amended between readings. —Skyler Baldwin

Hollywood looking for deal on tragic Murdaugh saga

6

Big-budget producers are already circling in South Carolina, anxious to turn the tabloid-ready Murdaugh murder mystery into must-watch film or TV. True-crime junkies have followed the tragic saga of the powerful Murdaugh family for weeks, starting most recently with the double murder of Maggie Murdaugh and her son Paul — members of an influential family that has figured in Hampton County legal circles for generations. Local news updates on the case are re-reported almost immediately by national outlets, and the story has reporters from The New York Times competing with TV, print and online media for new details out of rural South Carolina. Alex Murdaugh, Maggie’s husband and Paul’s father, turned himself in Sept. 16, accused in a fraud scheme after reportedly admitting to stealing law firm money to finance a drug addiction and then trying to fake his own killing to allow his other son to collect a life insurance payout. He has denied connection to his wife and son’s unsolved deaths. South Carolina’s Fits News has covered Murdaugh drama for years and is compiling one of the most exhaustive collection of reports on the latest developments. Will Folks, founder of the site that’s had an inside track on politico news and gossip for 15 years, said he’s fielding calls from people wanting scoops or a piece of the story’s blockbuster potential. “Two types of vultures are in the area right now, the national press and the Hollywood producers,” Folks told the City Paper by phone Sept. 16. “I get it— there’s money to be made, but my focus is, right now, on getting the story right.” “There would be a lot of names people would recognize,” Folks said. “But again, that’s just not where my head’s at.” Mandy Matney, Fits News’ only other writer, has leveraged her coverage of the case by spinning off the Murdaugh Murders Podcast as her own business alongside her day job. Matney could not be reached for an interview, but remarked on Twitter that she’s turned down national media inquiries to discuss the case. Folks isn’t blind to the fact the grisly story is tailor-made for mass consumption. “I think it absolutely will be on the screen. And I’m sure somebody will write an amazing book — maybe I will, one day,” Folks said. “There’ll be a time to delve into the commercial aspect of where this could go.” —Sam Spence

The event will feature more than 20 curated vendors, including Grease Kelly Vintage, Embellished Premium Apparel, Butter Fruit Frog Jewelry, Bitty Chip Cookies, and other community-based businesses offering clothing, accessories, records and home decor. Guests also are invited to visit neighboring restaurants Rebel Taqueria and Machu Picchu

Charleston City Council opted against making the city’s Special Commission on Equity, Inclusion and Racial Conciliation a permanent fixture in the city at last Tuesday night’s meeting after protracted debate over amendment proceedings. “Do we want a mechanism, a body, that considers in our future a more equitable, a more inclusive city and policies that would lead us to a more equitable place?” Mayor John Tecklenburg asked the council prior to the vote. “That’s why we would form this commission, to continue the work of considering things that would make Charleston a more equitable and just place.” Tecklenburg expressed concern regarding the wording of the ordinance, making it seem as though the recommendations of the special commission had been accepted or approved, which would trigger “No” votes from some council members. But a suggested amendment that would strike a number of phrases from the ordinance to clear that up failed, allowing council members to vote on the ordinance as previously amended. The measure ultimately failed 6-7, with votes in favor coming from Councilmembers Dudley Gregorie, Carol Jackson, Robert Mitchell, Jason Sakran, Keith Waring and Tecklenburg. Public comments regarding the motion were divided, with many residents offering support for a permanent commission, and others claiming it would not be a good fit for the city. —Skyler Baldwin

Alliance for Full Acceptance gets new leader North Charleston-based LGBTQ+ advocacy group Alliance for Full Acceptance (AFFA) announced Monday it has hired Holly Whitfield as its new executive director. She comes to the Charleston area from Charlotte, with hopes of further expanding AFFA’s impact statewide. Whitfield, 52, originally hails from Indiana, and has spent time working in education, health care, fundraising and nonprofit leadership. She most recently worked as executive director for Shepherd’s Center of Charlotte, a nonprofit that provides senior services. Before that, she worked with Charlotte’s Time Out Youth, which served LGBTQ residents aged 11-20. Whitfield has two grown children and will live, with her wife, in West Ashley. In Charleston, Whitfield takes AFFA’s reins in its 23rd year, with aspirations to

increase the organization’s reach. “Even with all of that foundation, I think that the biggest thing is: Our society is in a place where there are a lot of uncertainties,” she told the City Paper via phone Sunday. “I think that the biggest [goal] is to grow and grow the organization to have maximum impact. And that is continuing not just in Charleston or South Carolina but as broad as we can in the neigh- Whitfield boring states as well. And so I just think that greater outreach and cultural awareness is highly important in diversifying some of our programming.” Whitfield is the first woman and first

person of color to serve as AFFA’s executive director. The group’s previous leader, Chase Glenn, left earlier this year to become director of LGBTQ+ Health Services and Enterprise Resources at the Medical University of South Carolina. AFFA is one of the most active LGBTQ groups in South Carolina, involved with advocacy efforts at the state and local level. It was one of the coalition groups involved in drafting hate crimes legislation passed by the state House of Representatives and has facilitated LGBTQ training for Charleston Police Department in recent years. The group’s work remains important in the local community, Whitfield said. “Like many of the organizations that represent a marginalized community, it’s just so important that we all can come together and be part of a community.” —Sam Spence

just limitations to getting the information out to the individual.” Paluzzi said Charleston Pro Bono tracked roughly 85-100 eviction cases in previous years. The county will likely see triple that total this year, despite evictions having been on hold until August. Charleston Housing Court has been helping renters facing eviction remain in place since the pilot program began in October 2019. If you fear you don’t have the means to pay rent, or that you might be evicted unlawfully, Paluzzi recommends calling the Trident United Way housing hotline at 211, which helps to triage the situation and send callers to various organizations equipped to handle specific situations.

Affordable housing available, more on the way

When all else fails, and eviction is unavoidable, other groups are looking to help get people back on their feet. The Charleston Housing Authority (CHA) has recently opened a new public housing complex, Grace Homes on Cooper Street, and has continued work on other programs to unveil sites and units as well as refurbish old ones. But incoming CEO Arthur Milligan stressed timing is of the essence. When people reach his agency needing help, they can face processing and wait-times — CHA can’t place people in emergency housing. Milligan “If you think that something’s coming, the idea is you go out and get an application from somebody,” he said. Applications can range from being placed in public housing to getting assistance in your current situation. But unlike some programs with hundreds of millions of dollars at their disposal, CHA only has so much to give. “The hard thing is going to be, when you talk about housing, is the numbers,” he said. “Once these spaces are filled, the only thing you can talk about is putting people in shelters, and nobody wants to talk about that.” “It’s scary, because we don’t have all the answers, and the logic is not necessarily going to be what we think it will be,” he said. “There are going to be times when all of us are going to have to put our heads together and ask, ‘What can we do?’ ” The Charleston Housing Authority oversees 2,620 affordable housing units, with 1,407 of those being public housing and 1,213 being workforce housing. Applications for housing and assistance can be submitted through the Housing Authority’s website: chacity.org.

We aren’t sure what make-out sleep-away camp he’s going out to, but we’re still waiting on our invite. A downtown woman pulled over for suspected driving under the influence denied having consumed any alcohol that day, but later told officers she couldn’t have been the one driving the car because she was “too drunk.” Police noted as well that she was the only occupant of the vehicle. Police responded to a party of roughly 100 people at a downtown home, where no partygoer would give up the identity of the property owner. Not to be defeated, officers opted to disperse the event entirely. Party poopers.

SC transparency law keeps public in the dark I

Views 09.22.2021

f someone on Charleston City Council were to be under investigation by the State Ethics Commission right now, you would not know about it. Why? Because South Carolina law prohibits public knowledge of potential ethics violations by public officials, unless the commission’s secret vote deems the claims worthy. To put it bluntly: Transparency law in the Palmetto State is nothing more than reputation protection for state politicians. For most legal questions, even those involving people in power, have the same starting rules. Any time a legislator or councilman is arrested for drunk driving, for example, an investigation is conducted. If a mayor rear-ends someone on Broad Street, the police are called, blue lights and all, to write a report. Guilty or not, the matter is public and the process runs its course equitably. But if you file an ethics complaint against any elected official, the potential crime becomes secret — nobody with any knowledge of the complaint can discuss it, thanks to South Carolina’s secrecy protections for politicians. The procedure for filing a complaint is simple enough: If someone suspects a public official is in violation of state law, he or she sends their concerns to the State Ethics Commission. The commission looks into the complaint and decides whether to bring formal action. But state law keeps even the allegation of a possible impropriety under wraps until ethics commissioners meet — behind closed doors — to consider the facts. It’s all done in secret. It’s all done outside of the scope of public scrutiny, just to decide whether the complaint is legitimate enough to subject

public officials to the same treatment they’d get for drunk driving or a wreck. It should make you mad, this perverse concoction of hogwash, horsefeathers and cow manure. What’s even more maddening is if someone dares disclose the complaint before it’s blessed by the commission, the law requires that the complainant face jail time or a fine. To top it off, if ethics commissioners decide the alleged misdeeds did not veer outside South Carolina’s broad ethics rules, the whole thing disappears and is stricken from the record. Luckily, a lawsuit filed last month in federal court is challenging South Carolina’s opaque transparency rules. An anonymous whistleblower who had a complaint dismissed by the State Ethics Commission wants to tell the world about allegations that sound an awful lot like a textbook case of corruption. The commission even substantiated the whistleblower’s claim, but said it didn’t amount to a potential offense. But under state law, the anonymous person is sworn to confidentiality, even if it’s in the public’s interest to speak out. “If this is the law in South Carolina, the public, the press and the General Assembly should know, first and foremost, so this massive loophole can be closed,” the Aug. 25 complaint reads. Maybe one of your councilmen is under investigation right now. Maybe not. But shouldn’t you have the right to know about allegations against people who have submitted themselves to higher standards as public servants? Of course, particularly given the state’s lax ethics rules. Our politicians deserve scrutiny. Change the law.

OPINION

Road reforms bode well for SC future, if we stick to it By Marvin Pendarvis Facing a future characterized by natural disasters induced by climate change, it is our responsibility to be as environmentally responsible as possible. Posterity will judge us for what we do now and the lives of countless innocent people depend on it. That is why it is so heartening to see the progress our Department of Transportation has made in recent years in terms of improving bicycle and pedestrian paths.

Blazing a trail many other agencies could follow, and giving reasons for optimism that in the near future, green options for transportation will be the norm in South Carolina, making it easier for everyone to participate in saving the planet. Our greatest accomplishment on this front in the past year was the legislature’s passage of the state’s Complete Streets bill, which will reduce the necessity of carbon-based transportation by leaps and bounds. By ensuring most new roadways have bicycle paths and pedestrian walkways,

we will have created a network of corridors connecting the entire state. The new connections will make walking and biking a plausible option for many who did not previously have easy non-car commutes to work or school. It will now be possible to make the majority of our transportation carbon-neutral. Many of the improvements are not only to help commuters, but also to expand the recreational avenues across our area. The West Ashley Greenway, in particular, comes to mind. It is not only a benefit to our environment, but also the health of our citizens that free, clean and beautiful means of keeping an active lifestyle are expanded. Especially with the prospect of a pandemic with no foreseeable end due to antivaxx sentiment allowing for new variants to evolve and many other emerging health concerns. Staying healthy is no longer a personal virtue, but a public duty. To that end, it behooves us to make these improvements. The end result of the trend these bills are forging will be a new South Carolina — a labyrinth of green alongside the old matrix of gray to dominate the significant portions of people’s lives spent commuting and exercising outdoors.

Many of the improvements are not only to help commuters, but also to expand the recreational avenues across our area.

Adjacent communities will no longer be separated from one another by major construction projects, as has happened with a focus on car-first transportation policy. This will be a place where the air, the land, the wetlands and the waterways will be cleaner, and without oil runoff and exhaust fumes currently poisoning our region. In short: We are making South Carolina a healthier, more verdant and more vibrant place. For a state known by all the metrics in which it lacks progress, these changes are a pleasant counter to that narrative. They’re an indication that South Carolina could soon proudly claim designations reserved for the places that score high in quality of life, the environment and human vitality. These are small steps in the direction of transforming this place into one known for its hope and for the glowing radiance of its human goodness. With a little more work, people will look here to see a vision for what this country could be and an example for other communities to follow.

Sharon Graci discusses PURE Theatre’s past, present and future

Arts 09.22.2021

By Kevin Wilson

PURE Theatre artistic director Sharon Graci said there wasn’t anything outside of theater she considered doing. As she recalls, “When I was 13 years old, my parents sent me to classes at the local community theater, and I just never stopped being a part of it.” In reality, Graci’s story isn’t that simple. There has been plenty of preparation and evolution unfolding behind the scenes that eventually opened doors leading to her current role. Graci Graci told the City Paper she initially trained as an actor at Point Park University, and it was only about 20 years ago she really started to shift her attention toward directing, specifically new play development. These days, she usually gets to call her own shots, since PURE is a professional

regional theater founded by Graci and her husband, Rodney Lee Rogers, back in 2003. “We produce contemporary theater, and we mainly just wanted to join the party already happening here with Charleston Stage and Village Rep, and Footlight Players and Midtown Productions,” Graci said. “In the past 18 seasons, we’ve produced more than 70 regional premieres and over two dozen world-premiere plays.” Graci said her ever-enigmatic team adheres to three guiding principles — promises actually — that they make to the audience: to only tell stories worth listening to, to constantly strive for excellence and to always endow attendees with something noteworthy to talk about when they leave the theatre. “After almost two decades, we’ve maintained a consistent vision of success that focuses foremost on increased relevance and deep connection with our audience, and we’ve established ourselves as a gathering place where the wider community grapples with our divisive issues, mines our collective purposes, and seeks out common ground,” Graci said,

adding that, “I think what is most important to me is that we use drama wisely and that PURE’s work is a catalyst for inclusion, awareness, acceptance, action and change.” PURE Theatre’s new season titled “Emergence,” is all about coming out of the darkness into the light. “It’s concerned with what it means to become, to arrive somewhere different, with an illumination that wasn’t there before,” Graci said. The season will open at the Dock Street Theatre and Cannon Street Arts Center with a one-person play featuring one of PURE’s original core ensemble members, David Mandel. The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey runs for six performances at the end of September and beginning of October. The company also has a new program in the works, the Fall Nights series, happening outdoors at Battery Gadsden on Sullivan’s Island, with two featured plays, Constellations, with core ensemble members Paul Rolfes and Camille Lowman and Buyer & Cellar with core ensemble member Brannen Daughtery. Finally, according to Graci, PURE will finish 2021 with Little Gem, a play featuring two core ensemble members, Sullivan Hamilton [Graci’s daughter] and Camille Lowman, and directed by core ensemble member Cristy Landis. In the end, Graci said she couldn’t be happier about the road she has taken or the future of PURE Theatre. “There was a time when I was really wrapped up in this idea of a career that people could look at and say that I had achieved something of note,” she said. “If this all ended tomorrow, I can tell you from the most honest place within me, I am happy to have taken this ride. I made beautiful things for a living with people who I love for an audience that challenges and inspires me in a city that moves me every day, and I am grateful beyond measure.”

OCTOBER 14 JAMES ISLAND COUNTY PARK

Plenty of people picked up new hobbies during the COVID-19 shutdown — some tried their hands at bread-baking, while others dusted off their golf clubs or started a home renovation project. Lowcountry Fungi co-owners Jonathan Cox and Benny Mosiman started an indoor mushroom farm. “Many years ago, I was part of the Charleston Permaculture Guild and loved making mushroom logs and just did it casually,” said Cox, who also owns local kombucha company One Love. “When COVID happened, pro- Cox duction from One Love kind of slowed down. So mushrooms came up, and I saw that there wasn’t really a good gourmet mushroom farm in Charleston.” An idea started to form, and Cox hit the road in summer 2020, learning the ins and outs of indoor mushroom farming from Myers Mushrooms owner Eric Myers in Wichita, Kan. Cox and Mosiman then built their own 1,000-foot facility in the same

Johns Island warehouse as One Love, where they grow five mushroom varieties: blue oysters, lion’s mane, king trumpet, pioppini and black pearls. According to Cox, growing indoors allows for more quality control. “Indoor farming is a much more controlled environment, but it allows you to grow a variety of mushrooms as well as a much higher quality than outdoors,” he said. “We’re creating a perfect environment, so it’s a much more efficient system.” But how exactly does the duo grow mushrooms? According to Cox, “It’s not a very simple process. Mushrooms start off as mycelium, which is kind of like the seed, and you grow that onto substrates — like woods or waste products. It consumes all the energy from that substrate.” Made of oak sawdust and soybean hulls, Cox’s substrate is placed in a plastic bag where the mushrooms grow. After the bags are run through a steam sterilizer to kill competitive micro-organisms, they are inoculated with the mycelium. The bags are then sealed for 4-6 weeks, allowing the mycelium to colonize the substrate. Still with us? Once the bags are fully colonized, Cox takes them into his 200-square-foot “Grow Room” — which mimics a forest

A la carte W+F culinary village in North Charleston for 2022 The annual Charleston Wine + Food Festival’s culinary village has a new home at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, festival organizers announced last week, saying “the move accommodates the festival’s steady growth.” W+F is scheduled to take place March 2-6, 2022. Marion Square has been the culinary village’s home since the inaugural 2005 festival. Marion Square will still be utilized as a venue — a “free, community event” will be announced at a later date, and “dozens” of other W+F events will be held on the peninsula. The festival will feature nearly 100 events in total — the full schedule will be announced Oct. 17, and tickets will be available starting Oct. 21.

with 95% humidity and a temperature in the high 50s — and cuts open the bags. Exposure to oxygen, cool temperatures and high humidity stimulates the mushroom growth. Once harvested and packaged, the mushrooms are ready to be sold to trendy downtown spots like 167 Raw, Babas on Cannon, Basic Kitchen and Daps Breakfast and Imbibe. “People like our mushrooms because our grow room is top-notch,” Cox said. “Growing them in cold temperatures and harvesting them young are definitely reasons why chefs love our mushrooms over most [others'].” Folks who keep it local when purchasing mushrooms from Lowcountry Fungi are positively contributing to the environment. Every three pounds of mushrooms produce six pounds of compost — Spade & Clover Gardens owner John Warren picks up this compost for use on his Johns Island farm. “He breaks it up and tills it into his soil,” said Cox, adding that the compost helps with water retention and pest management. “It adds life to the soil.” Another reason to keep it local is mushooms’ short shelf life, Cox said. “The main reason to buy local is mushrooms don’t last through distribution really well, so the sooner you can consume after harvesting, the higher-quality they’re going to be,” he said. “The shelf life is going to be better when it’s coming 20 miles down the road as opposed to 100.” Fungi fans can purchase Lowcountry Fungi’s mushrooms at the downtown, West Ashley and Sea Island farmers markets, along with Lowcountry Street Grocery and Veggie Bin on Spring Street. Moving forward, Cox plans to add medicinal mushrooms and “value-add” products like mushroom patties and mushroom-infused coffee. “Value-added products are my main focus, as well as teaching workshops on how to grow your own mushrooms at home and gardening with mushroom compost.”

Marcus King Band returns to the Holy City By Kevin Wilson Marcus King is a 25-year-old master musician whose old-soul vocals and bold guitar playing have put him firmly on the path toward greatness. Nashville-based but Greenville-raised, King’s sound is an amalgamation of Southern rock, blues, gospel, country and ragtime. King credits having been raised in South Carolina with setting him up for success. “There must be something in the water in the Upstate, or maybe it’s in all that mustard barbecue sauce,” he told the City Paper. “Whatever it is, that environment seems to have had the same impact on me as it did on the Marshall Tucker Band, all the great Piedmont blues acts, and even Gram Parsons, who lived in Greenville for a brief period during the 1960s. I’m proud to come from that region and to be a part of such a rich tradition.” For nearly a decade now, King has been relentless in building his fanbase and ensuring a legacy of his own through his strong presence on stage and on vinyl as both a solo artist and frontman for the Marcus King Band. Partnering with different producers has certainly helped King to achieve his multifaceted, forward-looking vision along the way. Early on, he collaborated with Warren Haynes of Gov’t Mule, and recently, the direction of his 2020 solo LP, El Dorado, was mapped out by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. “I had primarily known Dan as a performer and as a friend, but once I moved to Nashville, I thought it would be great to get to experience how he works as a producer. His approach is hands-on, but at the same time it’s not overbearing,” King said. “To me, Dan is like the captain of an old warship. He always knows where we are going, and he gives clear instructions for how to get there. But he also allows you to be spontaneous and creative throughout the journey.” El Dorado, which contains such standout tracks as “Wildflowers and Wine,” “One Day She’s Here” and “Too Much There must be something in the Whiskey,” revealed King’s talent as a songwriter and brought water in the Upstate, or maybe him one step closer to becoming it’s in all that mustard barbecue a household name, earning a Grammy Award nomination for sauce.” —Marcus King Best Americana Album. He’s not slowing down, but King is hesitant to say precisely what comes next. He’s been busy prepping multiple solo records for release in the coming year. There’s also a chance of a joint effort with fellow Nashville musician Billy Strings. “We are both very open to the idea of making music together—

Pulse Charleston Jazz Orchestra announces season 14 Raised in Greenville, Marcus King is making a return to S.C. for two local performances Sept. 27 and 28

Charleston Jazz Orchestra will kick off season 14 in February 2022 with singer/saxophonist Camille Thurman. The series will continue with the presentation of two famous Duke Ellington suites and tribute shows in honor of Miles Davis and Chick Corea. The 16-piece orchestra led by maestro Robert Lewis just welcomed two new players, saxophonist Lauren Meccia and trombonist John Yeager. CJO considers it a milestone to have two female musicians in the orchestra, now that Meccia is joining longtime member, trumpeter Cameron Handel, said executive director Tatjana Beylotte. —Chelsea Grinstead

Hot Mustard delivers retro instrumentals Instrumental duo Hot Mustard released the debut album, Mother Sauce, earlier this month. Guitarist Jack Powell and bassist Nick Carusos present a late-1960s and early-1970s funk and soul sound on the intricate tracks layered with ambient melodies and boom-bap drum beats. Trumpeter Jordan McLean of Afrobeat band Antibalas and trombonist Dave “Smoota” Smith of TV on the Radio recorded the horn section featured on the album in Brooklyn, New York. Powell then arranged and mixed the final product at his home studio, Opus Thimble Studios. —Katherine Jordan

we just need the stars to align so that we can get it scheduled,” he said. In light of all the recent restrictions associated with the pandemic, for now at least, King said that he is just happy to be able to put the band back together for a nationwide tour and to once again play the music he loves with the people he likes most. Fortunately, that endeavor will land The Marcus King Band back in town for two distinct performances at the Charleston Music Hall, Sept. 27 and 28. According to King, his plan for the first evening is to feature a three-piece configuration, and for the second night to play a more raucous set with the full ensemble.

Haunters set for Big Gun Burger stage Indie punk outfit Haunters started out as a solo project of local guitarist Jonathan Minor in 2016, and then bassist Brendon Shealy and drummer Jeff O’Brien came on board. The three-piece will celebrate the cassette release of EP, Long Days//Sleepless Nights, with a free show at 10 p.m., Sept. 29, at Big Gun Burger. Released separately through 2021, the five tracks will be available for the first time as a compilation. The cassette will include a bonus track, and following the show, the newly assembled material will be out on all streaming platforms. —CG

Reflections of singersongwriter Becca Leigh Local singer-songwriter Becca Leigh Nicholson wrote down a meditation about a year ago: “Work within your means, think/ dream outside your means, slowly expand the circle of possibility.” Recently, she came across it again. “I feel like that’s my mantra that I apply to all aspects of my life at this time,” Nicholson said. There was a time when she put a lot of pressure on herself to do things a certain way with her songs, whether that was recording a certain amount of time after writing or releasing a certain amount of time after recording. “I’ve come to realize that any version of the music that I’m making in whatever form it is in is valuable,” she said. “I don’t have to follow this formulaic approach or schedule in order to create something that reflects my artistry and who I am as an artist and what I’m wanting to put out in the world.” Under the moniker Becca Leigh, Nicholson’s cerebral, folksy compositions on the 2015 EP, Doxologies, will bring you into a state of introspection if you are listening closely. And with another five-song EP in the works, she will open for local rock band High Divers Sept. 25 at the Pour House— just her and her electric guitar. Songwriting is how she steps outside of her own head for a little bit, channelling her thoughts into a creative outlet. Melody, flow and emotional tone are the things that come together for her to make a song. “I think our genre titles need to be updated. I tell people most of the time I’m a folk singer, which is totally not even true — it’s just the closest translation of what I do.” Her new home-recorded project is one long piece of music broken up into five parts, she said, each one representative of the transfor-

Local singer-songwriter Becca Leigh said she thinks music genres can be more nebulous than some think mational phases in Chinese medicine theory: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. “I didn’t do anything to it. It’s very raw,” she said. “I wanted to do it in one take, but it was too hard, so I did it in two separate takes.” She first realized music didn’t have to have a particular definition when she started listening to Sufjan Stevens around the time of his 2005 album, Illinois. “I had never heard anything like that in my life. That was the door opening for me,” telling herself, “‘OK, music can sound like whatever you want it to sound like, it doesn’t have to be a genre.’ I started writing songs shortly after that.” Nicholson said she was hard on herself after her first failed attempt at an album a few years back, but these days, her approach at the moment is to keep doing what she’s doing. An album will come when the time is right. “Try not to put a timeline on your healing or anyone else’s healing,” she said. —Chelsea Grinstead

Run clubs lead to accountability, social interaction and sometimes, marriage

 S

By Parker Milner

tep out your door any day in most corners of Charleston and you'll see someone out for a jog. And at least six days a week, local runners convene in at least 10 different organized run groups ranging from serious training runs to a few drinks after a couple labored miles around a brewery. Locals join Charleston area running clubs and groups for a multitude of reasons, but the majority show up on a weekly basis for two main reasons: accountability and social interaction. “When you get more people together, everybody’s encouraging everyone else,” said Steve Griffin, who leads Jimp Running Club. “And sometimes, when I run by myself, I may talk myself into cutting the run short.” The weekly cadence Charleston running groups stick to allows runners to get into a routine, and for most groups, signing up is as easy as showing up. Several local groups like the Park Circle Pacers cater to all types of runners by hosting different-format runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays each week. Pacers co-founder Virginia Clauser calls the kidand pet-friendly “Thirstday” 1-mile or 5K jaunt that starts and ends at Commonhouse

Aleworks a “fun social run.” “A big part of why I go to the clubs is for the social aspect,” said Erin Atkinson, a College of Charleston graduate who regularly runs with the Pacers on Thursday evenings. “Especially since the pandemic, I work from home, so it’s just kind of nice to get out of the house and see people’s faces.” You don’t have to sign-up to join a Pacers run, but the group’s Commonhouse sponsorship provides members who pay an annual $25 fee with shirts and discounted rates on local races, a focal point for members who attend the group's two other runs — a Tuesday track workout and a Sunday morning long run. “That’s actually one of our most popular runs right now,” said Clauser, referring to the Sunday 5- and 8-mile sessions. “That just goes back to the reason why we started the running club — misery loves company. By providing these three weekly runs, we give everyone the chance to come run with someone.” Fleet Feet also offers runs for folks with varying goals in mind, said Amy Minkel, who owns the running store’s three local locations in Mount Pleasant, Summerville and Carnes Crossroads.

Park Circle Pacers meet Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays “From the time we opened our first location in the Charleston area eight years ago, we had a run club from the beginning, starting from folks who were just looking to get off the couch to those who were training for marathons,” she said. Runners can show up to Fleet Feet’s three locations on Monday evenings for a 3- or 5-mile run, and this fall, the store’s “Fall Pub Run Series” will feature routes that start and end at specific venues like Holy City Brewing, the location for the next 3-mile pub run Sept. 29. In addition, those looking to train for longer distances like the Bridge Run can get special training pro CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

grams for $115 (including the race fee). “If there’s a local race that we can encourage them to participate in, that’s typically what we do. It’s another way to also have that accountability,” said Minkel, who brings in local experts to make the programs. “For the bridge run, everyone is typically training for a 10K. It’s just a great way for us to support such a great local race.” Like the pub runs, many local group runs end with a shared beer or cocktail with fellow runners, adding a social element to the exercise. The Charleston Beer Runners start at Hampton Park before finishing at a different bar or brewery every week, while breweries like Frothy Beard, Low Tide and Estuary Beans & Barley host their own runs. For runs that conclude with a cold beer, make sure you pack a large water, and some may want to consider bringing along a spare shirt to change into (this City Paper writer recalls a muggy outing with Charleston Beer Runners that ended at Recovery Room). A little perspiration didn’t stop Amy Embry from meeting her future husband, Aaron, at Taco Boy after a 2017 Charleston Beer Runners meetup. Amy, an O.G. member of the 7-year-old group, says joining “was one of the best things I ever did.” “[Aaron] started running with us every week, and then he proposed to me during a run,” Amy recalled. “I think back then there were maybe 10-15 people in the group — other than that, I’ve never been in a running group before. I used to be a very shy person. I didn’t like to run.” Now married, the couple still attends Charleston Beer Runners regularly, and Aaron works as the point person for the group’s cultural and community initiatives. He says CBR makes a concerted effort to make the group a place for everyone. “Because so much of running is about community, I think running groups need to make sure that they’re diverse and inclusive,” he said. “It’s all about community, and it’s all about building each other up.” The local running community has, of course, been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, said Griffin, who has yet to restart Jimp, which normally runs a 5-mile route that starts at The Aquarium parking garage. For now, Griffin meets a group of four at 5:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at Colonial Lake. They run the bridge once a week, and Griffin plans to complete the Bridge Run. He looks forward to restarting Jimp when the time is right. “It was always fun meeting new people. Every time we’d meet, we would never know who was showing up, so it was always good to introduce Charleston running to them,” he said. “I miss that for sure.”

5K Training with Catherine Hollister

Rūta Smith

Blue Sky Endurance owner Catherine Hollister can help you get ready for your first run or triathlon Blue Sky Endurance’s Bridge Run program implements a schedule with two days of speed running and one longer, endurance-focused run each week in addition to personalized “homework” for training days. Hollister emphasizes a training program for a 5K is inherently unique to each person, but offers a sample training guide and tips to help beginners get a sense of the routine, though she encourages new runners to seek out coaches and groups to individualize their program and help with motivation. —Samantha Connors MORE: Official Bridge Run training program: bridgerun.com/training

CONGRATS BRIDGE RUNNERS!

Sample 5K Training Program STAGE 1: WEEKS 1-4 Focus on building up your endurance and strengthening specific muscles (core, knees, hamstrings, etc.) to prepare for quicker speed runs. Run at least three times per week with rest days or cross training in between. Hollister says at least one rest day per week is required. She recommends crosstraining on non-running days to build muscles in other areas of the body that will help with running. Cross training can include any other physical activity from cycling to weight training. Example Day 1, Week 1 Start by running for 5 minutes. Walk for 1 minute. Repeat three times. Then, add 1 minute to your running time on each run day but continue to walk for 1 minute following your run. Repeat three times. Once you reach 10 minute runs, replace three repetitions with two. STAGE 2: WEEKS 5-10 As you build stamina and become more accustomed to regularly running with walking intervals, incorporate longer run days.

Example Week 5 Day 1: run 20 minutes, walk 1 minute, run 5 minutes Day 2: Rest/cross-train Day 3: Run 15 minutes, walk 1 minute. Run hard for 2 minutes, walk for 2 minutes. Repeat three times. Day 4: Rest Day 5: Run 25 minutes Day 6: Rest/cross-train Day 7: Rest STAGE 3: WEEKS 11-12 In the final weeks leading up to a race, runners should begin re-introducing quick repetition runs again and taper back distance while still practicing good running form. Doing a short, easy run the day before a race is recommended to keep muscles loose yet prepared for run day. Training for a 5K is dependent on the individual’s strength, endurance and experience, which is why training with a pro or a running group can help runners to identify individual areas of improvement and strengthen overall form and stamina prior to the race itself.

Catherine Hollister has been running in some form since she was 18, but discovered a love for triathlons later in life. Now 52, she's the owner of Blue Sky Endurance in Mount Pleasant. “I had run the Boston Marathon, and I was looking for the next hard thing, and I thought a triathlon would be a challenge,” she said. “So I started training for my first triathlon in my early 30s, and I just got hooked.” After participating in several triathlons since, Hollister realized Charleston did not have a one-stop store where triathletes could buy all their gear. She opened Blue Sky Endurance in 2015, selling running, biking and swimming equipment and offering training programs — including a 12-week Bridge Run program designed for runners of all experience levels. Though the program is a group activity, it’s very much individualized based on peoples’ experiences and running challenges. Her biggest advice to first-time 5K runners? Identify your barriers and find a solid solution to overcome them. “I think you have to be really honest with yourself,” said Hollister. “Usually people know why they haven’t trained for a 5K before, whether it’s because they don’t have enough time or don’t have the discipline to get out the door. Ask yourself why you don’t like running, then find the solution to help you get there.”

AFTER THE RUN

What’s driving 10 years of growth for Charleston’s beer industry? Cooper River Bridge Run Fun Guide 09.22.2021

By Parker Milner

harleston’s craft beer industry continues to grow, with breweries consistently opening, and old standbys like Palmetto and Holy City Brewing expanding operations. In fact, the industry that accounts for $905 million in economic impact is affecting all levels of the state’s three-tier system, as breweries, distributors and retail shops small and large try to get a sip from the growing growler. Today, the tri-county area counts 37 breweries, according to South Carolina Brewers Guild executive director Brook Bristow. “If we go back to 2011, that was the year Westbrook and Holy City opened,” he said. “Before them, all we had were Coast and Palmetto.” The last decade’s growth is due in part to changes in state law that enabled breweries to sell and brew more beer. Perhaps the biggest shift came in 2017 when it became legal for brewpubs like Edmund’s Oast to distribute through wholesalers, a change that has helped newcomers grow fast. “Based on our run rate this year, we’re going to sell 6% out of our taproom — everything else is out the door,” said Edmund’s Oast operations director Timmons Pettigrew, referring to the group’s King Street Extension brewery, which

opened in 2017. “Our physical footprint here in the facility is large, so we always knew that distribution would have to be a huge part of the puzzle.” The 2017 shift allowed local brewpubs — places with a permanent food service provider — to utilize the three-tier system. Essentially, Edmund’s Oast, for instance, must sell its beer to a wholesaler, who distributes it to retail shops for sale to consumers. According to Pettigrew and brewing director Cameron Read, Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. has brewed over 100 beers since opening in 2017, and it now distributes in eight states. Producing 90 barrels of fruited sours each week — amounting to about 29,760 12-ounce cans — beers in this category are currently Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co.’s top seller. As a whole, the industry’s impact is up 28% from $650 million in 2017, and while 2020 was a down year for most independent breweries, the state is becoming an attractive investment opportunity for bigger brewers looking to focus on wholesale distribution. In November 2020, Mark Anthony Brewing — producer of White Claw Hard Seltzer — announced a $400 million investment to build a production facility in Richland County. Locally, the area’s oldest independent brewery got

The local craft beer industry’s growth is being fueled by distribution, which makes sense, given only a limited number of people can stop by a single brewery taproom on a given day. For small wholesalers which handle distribution, it’s an uphill battle to compete with bigger operations deeply ingrained in the market. But, Low Country Craft Distribution co-founder Greg Montieth told the City Paper there’s more market share now than in 2016 when the company opened with two breweries. “It was a lot of cold-calling at first, but we started having breweries reach out to us,” he said. “A big turning point for us was during the pandemic last year.” The shift occurred when Advintage Distributing, one of what Montieth described as “the big three” distributors, purchased Low Country Craft’s main competitor. The other two widely known Southeast distributors, Southern Eagle Distributing and Lee Distributors, combine to represent a mix of smaller craft breweries like Palmetto and Commonhouse Aleworks as well as Anheuser-Busch, Molson Coors and other domestic and international conglomerates. State Sen. Sean Bennett of Summerville,

who sponsored two 2017 bills that made it legal for breweries to sell liquor and participate in nonprofit events, says the power of those multinational brands can be felt within the S.C. market due to the three-tier system. “The distributors themselves get a lot of push from the big manufacturers that almost treat the distributors like the distributors sometimes treat small brewers,” said Bennett, recognizing that the three-tier system is something the state is committed to for the foreseeable future. “We have distributors that have invested hundreds of millions of dollars over the years, and I recognize that it is an important piece of the economy.” Low Country Craft now services 30-plus breweries, most of which are the small businesses in danger of getting swallowed up by the three-tier system. “The demand is incredible. We had an explosion in breweries that we represent,” Montieth said, describing why smaller breweries turn to Low Country Craft. “Sometimes they get lost in the shuffle, just because they’re such an insignificant part of their overall business.” Southern Eagle and Crown Beverages merged in 2018 to form Southern Crown Partners, a company that distributes an average of 47,000 cases daily in South Carolina and Georgia. Southern Eagle is one of Anheuser-Busch’s oldest continual distributors in the country, a profitable partnership that helps fund other divisions of the company, craft brands director Matt Galentine told the City Paper. The wholesaler represents five craft breweries in Charleston, and Galentine’s division is broken into three groups: onpremises (bars/restaurants), grocery stores and convenience stores. When it comes to finding space for products at big box grocery stores, Galentine said it’s their job “to get all this beer out there, and then the customer makes the decision on what they want to purchase.” “Retailers are open to making room on the shelf.

an infusion of outside cash from North Carolina-based Catawba Brewing Co., which purchased Palmetto in 2017. Catawba co-owner Billy Pyatt said the company “immediately put $1 million of equipment in” for a new brewhouse and tanks, with another $500,000 spent on a new canning line during the pandemic. “Today, there’s much Pyatt more beer being made in that building than was ever before,” Pyatt said. “We’ve become a real integral part of [the distributors’] business plan.”

more of a corporate level within the chain, and then when they do that, that’s typically set for a year,” he said. For smaller retail shops like Park Circle’s Brew Cellar, the increase in breweries has led to more variety, allowing co-owner Ryan Hendrick to better serve regular customers. “There are a lot more Hendrick options now, that’s for sure. The odd thing is we’ve gone to mostly seasonal stuff from the local breweries because they’re out there a lot more,” he said. “We can’t compete, necessarily, with grocery store pricing, so we specialize in rotating seasonals.” Each week, Hendrick receives emails from distributors “listing what is interesting.” Bigger breweries have representatives, but others do not, so Hendrick stays up to date by checking social media. “We tend to jump at whatever their newest releases are because those are more readily available than they were seven years ago,” Hendrick said. “It makes it more interesting for a shop like us that has repeat customers.”

Trickle-down?

Well-established businesses with deep pockets stand to gain from the craft beer industry’s growth, but what about small breweries in the area? Indigo Reef Brewing Company was relying on taproom sales at the start of 2020, but that all changed after the pandemic. After closing for 61 days, owners Chris and Nicole Ranere talked to their distributor, Low Country Craft, to arrange for a mobile canning line to come to the brewery to help sell more beer through distribution. “We worked with them to get those cans out, and it really worked well,” Chris Ranere said. “We found that it worked so well that we did it again, so we actually looked at canning lines of our own.” When the couple opened Indigo Reef in June 2019, a canning line was in their three-year plan, Chris Ranere said, but a Small Business Association loan helped them purchase one just before their first anniversary in 2020. Looking back to February 2020, Indigo Reef had $4,469 in sales from distribution — that number dipped to just $450 in April due to bar and restaurant closures. But once they added the canning line, the Raneres started to notice a shift. In March 2021, Indigo Reef made $12,500 from distribution, which now accounts for about 50% of sales, Chris Ranere said in July 2021. But taproom sales are still key for small breweries like Charles Towne Fermentory, where 70% of the sales take place on-

premises, founder Adam Goodwin said. Fermentory can produce between 120-130 barrels in a given month, about a third of what Edmund’s Oast produces over the same period in sours alone. “Selling it direct-to-consumer helps us handle the increase in cost of producing beer right,” Goodwin said. “We obviously have a small space, so we’re limited on what we can actually produce here. That limitation for volume production creates more of a situation where we want to create this space so we’re attractive to the community.” Goodwin would like to see some legislative changes to give small breweries more control over sales and distribution. “As soon as a brewery sells the beer to the wholesaler, it becomes the property of the wholesaler, and at that point, we don’t have a whole lot of influence on where it goes,” Goodwin said. “I think if you create laws that are beneficial for small breweries, you’re going to make the state more attractive for out-of-market brands.” Fermentory’s West Ashley neighbor Frothy Beard Brewing Company recently opened a second location in Bennett’s Summerville district, but the three-tier system means it must use a distributor to transfer beer between locations, Bennett said. While the senator views distributors as essential parts of the industry, he thinks some small changes are in order. “I look at it from a small business standpoint — the small business guys are the ones hindered by the distributors,” he said. “The problem is every time you try to do those small incremental things, it’s perceived by the distributors as your ultimate goal is to destroy their livelihood, and that’s not the case.” This story origianlly ran in the July 28 issue of City Paper and has been updated since.
