Latest BAR challenge worries some, but authority clear, city says By Sam Spence

News 10.06.2021

The most recent challenge to Charleston’s venerable Board of Architectural Review (BAR) worries some in the preservation community, but current and former city officials say its authority is clear despite the new appeal. Twice denied by the BAR, the Georgiabased developers of the property at 295 Calhoun St. downtown have appealed the board’s decision, requesting a start to mediation required before taking the city and the board to court. It’s not the first time a developer has appealed a BAR decision, but a potential revolving door for developer approvals resulting from private negotiations could represent a concerning trend, preservationists and one former city architect told the City Paper.

On Calhoun Street

Slated for a 2-acre strip of property near the medical district between Calhoun Street and a tidal basin known as Alberta Long Lake, the proposed eight-story mixed-use building drew criticism from preservationists before the its first denial in April and again in August. Despite city staff’s recommendation for conceptual approval, BAR members unanimously voted against the

While the occasional challenge is part of the process under state law, we believe that the BAR is stronger today than it’s been in many years and that it will continue to protect our city for generations to come.” —Jack O’Toole, City of Charleston spokesman

initial proposal, pointing to the building’s “significantly different scale” compared to nearby Harleston Village properties. When the applicant, an affiliate of developer Augusta Southeastern, returned in August, the board again unanimously rejected the proposal, siding with city staff who said the builder did not incorporate enough of the board’s recommendations. Eddie Bello served as Charleston city architect from 2000 to 2010 and sat with the Aug. 26 BAR-Large committee as an

alternate, making the deciding motion to reject 295 Calhoun St. plans. Bello said his vote boiled down to Southeastern’s secondround plans looking similar to the first. “I think the board has been very clear on what they need to do. They just didn’t do it,” he told the City Paper. Bello said it’s “frustrating,” as an architect who has worked within the BAR his whole career, to see projects go “around the system.” “It seems like they just said, ‘OK, we’re not even going to bother. Let’s just go straight to court,’ ” he said. Periodic appeals are to be expected, according to Charleston city spokesman Jack O’Toole. “While the occasional challenge is part of the process under state law, we believe that the BAR is stronger today than it’s been in many years and that it will continue to protect our city for generations to come,” he told the City Paper in a statement. Jason Long, a Southeastern vice president, said after the project’s two denials, the BAR format could benefit from some changes to “facilitate communication.” “It has been difficult to navigate the process without being permitted to meet with BAR members outside of the formal meeting,” he told the City Paper.

Queen Quet, also known as Marquetta L. Goodwine, founded the Gullah/ Geechie Sea Island Coalition in 1996 to protect Gullah/Geechee culture. The Order of the Palmetto is one of many honors for the chieftess and head-of-state for Goodwine, who advocates for the preservation of Gullah/Geechee Goodwine culture as well as advocating for environmental justice. McMaster’s recognition came for “a lifetime of extraordinary achievement, service and contributions on a national or statewide scale,” he said.

Lawsuit filed over state permit for Gadsden Creek construction

6

A lawsuit filed Oct. 1 contests construction plans around Gadsden Creek on the west side of the Charleston peninsula. The suit, filed by the South Carolina Environmental Law Project (SCELP) in state Administrative Law Court, is a formal objection to a permit issued by the state Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) that would allow construction to move ahead on the WestEdge development, affecting about four acres of tidal creek wetland. SCELP is representing the Friends of Gadsden Creek advocacy group in the proceedings. “We are alarmed that the state agency charged with safeguarding our precious coastal tidelands issued a permit that allows for the complete destruction of a tidal creek so that slightly larger hotels, condos and office buildings can be built,” said Ben Cunningham, an SCELP attorney. Historically, the area served as a working waterfront before it became a landfill, and much of the land that exists today is built on top of unstable humancreated land. A low-lying area along the Ashley River, flooding remains an issue in the immediate and surrounding areas, which includes the Gadsden Green housing complex. Developers say improvements in the area could remedy some of those problems, but activists say continued building only adds pressure to low-income communities nearby and could exacerbate flooding issues. Early phases of the WestEdge project have already been completed, with the construction of apartments, shops and a Publix grocery store anchoring the complex at Spring Street and Lockwood Drive. DHEC granted a Critical Area Permit and Water Quality and Coastal Zone Consistency certifications in July, paving the way for the project to move forward. Michael Maher, CEO of WestEdge Foundation Inc., said the lawsuit does more than just delays the project. “Of course we are disappointed, as the filing will delay works that will bring needed flooding and contamination relief to the Westside neighborhood,” he told the City Paper in an email Oct. 1. Cunningham called the reaction “more of the same from WestEdge,” and said the construction runs afoul of high-profile plans to make the Charleston peninsula more resilient in the face of sea level rise and climate change. The suit triggers an automatic stay on construction, according to Cunningham, while the case progresses through Administrative Law Court. —Sam Spence

‘My body, my choice’ Hundreds march Saturday to support reproductive freedom More than 600 people, many shouting “My body, my choice,” marched Oct. 2 from Charleston City Hall to the U.S. Custom House to support reproductive rights. On Saturday, women’s rights advocates gathered at 11 a.m. in Washington Square next to Charleston City Hall for pep talks and prayer, which was led by the Rev. Thomas Dixon of North Charleston. They left around 11:30 a.m. and walked along Meeting Street bearing placards and wearing lots of white clothing. It took about eight minutes for the line to turn the corner from Meeting Street to Market Street as participants headed to the Custom House. Across the state, hundreds more were expected at similar rallies in Columbia, Greenville and Myrtle Beach to send a strong message against a restrictive abortion measure, known as the “fetal heartbeat” law, that state legislators passed in February. “The marches this weekend continue to

highlight the still heinous attitudes toward women in South Carolina,” said Charleston women’s right’s advocate Jennet Robinson Alterman. “Consider that women did not serve on juries until 1969. We have among the highest rates of infant and maternal mortality in the U.S. Spurred on by restrictive anti-abortion legislation passed in Texas, South Carolina and other states, marchers also rallied in Augusta, Savannah and Charlotte and in scores of Women’s March events across the nation. At the Custom House, organizer Erica Cokley of Charleston shouted messages of support for reproductive freedom as the crowd, comprised mostly of women, made noise with call-and-response shouts. Earlier this week, Cokley, a member of Charleston County School Board, said the march was a national call to action after passage of the Texas law that bans almost all abortions. —Andy Brack

The landmark Charleston Place hotel officially got a new owner Friday. Beemok Capital, the family office of local billionaire businessman Ben Navarro, reported its deal to buy the hotel was completed, putting the hotel under local ownership for the first time in its 30-year history. City Paper was first to report the arrangement to sell the property to Navarro in August. Financial terms were not disclosed. Sources told the City Paper in June the 433-room hotel was ready to be dealt for up to $500 million — $1.2 million per room. Navarro cheered the transaction in a press release and said the newly formed Beemok Hospitality Group will get to work in the next 18 months to “revitalize” the complex, which includes the hotel, conference space, restaurants and retail space. “We intend to deploy significant investments at the property, while also honoring its unique heritage and overall identity that has solidified Charleston Place as one of the most iconic hotels in the Southeast,” Navarro said. The group also owns Hotel Domestique in Travelers Rest and controls the Daniel Island tennis complex that plays host to the WTA 500 Credit One Charleston Open (formerly Volvo Car Open). The Charleston Place first opened as a hotel operated by The Omni in 1986. French luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton acquired Belmond’s worldwide portfolio of highend hotels and resorts in 2019 for $3.2 billion, including Charleston Place. In August, Mayor John Tecklenburg said it was good to see the hotel going to a Charleston-area owner. —Sam Spence

SC mask mandate ban paused after disability lawsuit A federal judge ruled late Aug. 28 a South Carolina budget proviso violates the national Americans with Disabilities Act since it effectively bars some students from participating in school by prohibiting school districts from enacting mask mandates. Analyzing claims from Disability Rights South Carolina and parents who filed suit against Gov. Henry McMaster, Attorney General Alan Wilson and several school district leaders, U.S. District Judge Mary Geiger Lewis ruled the governor and attorney general denied the children in question “meaningful access to in-person education, programs, services and activities” because of the budget proviso. Lewis’ order grants the defendants’ request for a preliminary injunction, with a

full hearing on the matter pending. A short item tacked to the state budget passed earlier this year prohibits public school districts from using state funds to enforce mandatory masking. Charleston County School District is among the districts that have passed mandates anyway, drawing legal challenges and protests from anti-mask parents feeding off national political furor around masking. “This case presents a legal question, not a political one,” Lewis wrote in her ruling. “And, the question is quite simple: whether the Court will allow Defendants to continue to discriminate against the minor plaintiffs here based on their disabilities. The answer is, of course, a resounding, ‘No!’ ” Lewis continued:

“It is noncontroversial that children need to go to school. And, they are entitled to any reasonable accommodation that allows them to do so. No one can reasonably argue that it is an undue burden to wear a mask to accommodate a child with disabilities.” School districts across South Carolina have struggled to adapt student experiences as COVID-19 infections surged among school-aged children who are too young to be vaccinated. Medical professionals say the state has likely passed the peak of the latest COVID-19 variant spike, but even among those old enough to be vaccinated, hospitalizations and deaths remain high as new infections wane. —Sam Spence

The system

Created in 1931 with the nation’s first local historic preservation ordinance, Charleston’s BAR has maintained strict review over construction on the peninsula — a first-of-its-kind extension of the city’s zoning authority. But in 2016, after 85 years, the board saw a fundamental shift. Following protracted regulatory jousting between city planners and the Beach Company, which sought to redevelop the dated Sergeant Jasper apartment tower alongside Colonial Lake, the two parties landed in state court. After a circuit judge ruled the BAR overstepped its authority in denying Beach Company’s plans, a subsequent settlement approved by city council cleared the way for the large development still underway today. In exchange, the ruling that would have reined in the BAR was vacated. In the months that followed, the city approved clear design standards that now serve as the guide for the BAR. Property owners still have the right to appeal BAR decisions, and city officials have approved other negotiated settlements with developers initially spurned by the board.

Long-term impact

Former Charleston city planner Jacob Lindsey, now in Boulder, Colorado, said the new BAR guidelines give the city ground to stand on in case of a challenge. Problems arise when the guidelines aren’t followed, Lindsey said. “That poses a long term threat to Charleston’s ability to regulate architecture.” But the settlements run counter to the spirit of the BAR, preservationists say, and present a tough balance for local leaders who may want to avoid drawn-out lawsuits that suck up city resources. Brian Turner, advocacy director for the Preservation Society of Charleston, sees a possibility of long-term consequences. “The city mediating and settling cases and not supporting the BAR’s decisions, over time, certainly sends a message [that] if I’m a developer’s attorney, and I think I can get my project through in a way that I can’t in the administrative process, that I can get it through in the political process,” he told the City Paper. City spokesman O’Toole said the BAR remains the “first and best line of defense against inappropriate development in the downtown area.” And local laws are the city’s chance to help improve quality of life for residents. “Getting great architecture for a city is really hard,” Lindsey said. “That’s why the BAR exists — to push back against those tendencies and hold everyone accountable for a higher quality built environment.”

Residents of a downtown apartment were abruptly introduced to their upstairs neighbors when the ceiling caved in, dropping more than a dozen people into the living room. That’s one way to bring the party to you. RUNNERS UP Probably a prank, but that’s actually a bomb: A woman in a West Ashley pharmacy drive-thru returned a plastic tube full of fireworks instead of medication, but had forgotten to light the fuses. A young man was spotted on security footage stealing books from a downtown bookstore. There’s some good and bad here — on one hand, stealing is wrong, but on the other, at least kids are reading again. A West Ashley woman was scammed out of $2,000 by an unknown caller who claimed to be from Amazon. The woman described the caller as having an accent that was “either Mexican, Indian or Japanese.” Well, that narrows it down.

Buy local? Invest local, too. W

Views 10.06.2021

ith the holiday season already ramping up, get ready to hear a lot about the value of consumers buying locally, particularly with lots of foreign-manufactured goods stuck on container ships off the California coast. But there’s another important kind of “local” too — investing locally to grow jobs, boost economic stability and keep dollars circulating in the Lowcountry, instead of flowing into corporate coffers of businesses that put profits about our region’s interests. So we offer a big tip of the hat to Charleston billionaire and philanthropist Ben Navarro for buying the iconic Charleston Place hotel and keeping it local. Financial terms weren’t disclosed, but the cost is thought to approach $500 million. Over the next 18 months, Navarro’s Beemok Hospitality Group says it will work to revitalize the hotel complex, which includes conference areas, retail space and restaurants. “We intend to deploy significant investments at the property, while also honoring its unique heritage and overall identity that has solidified Charleston Place as one of the most iconic hotels in the Southeast,” Navarro said in a press release. Navarro is making a huge investment in the future of downtown Charleston, just as he has by purchasing a tennis complex on Daniel Island and by underwriting hundreds of thousands of dollars of college scholarships for Charleston County High School graduates. All of this investment illustrates Navarro’s faith that the local economy will remain strong. It also should send a clear signal to other investors, large and small, to step up and make more local investments. Don’t send your investments and charitable dollars out of the area. Rather, make our community stronger by investing in home-grown for-profit

companies and nonprofit organizations. There are plenty of local leaders who are putting their money here where it counts. Celeste and Charles Patrick have fueled several restaurants and nonprofits that make a difference. Attorney Ed Bell, an owner of the City Paper, is the driving force behind the newly invigorated Charleston School of Law. Other leaders seed good works. Billionaire Anita Zucker is a critical supporter behind educational improvement. Former Benefitfocus co-founder and CEO Shawn Jenkins gave millions to MUSC to create a state-of-the-art children’s hospital. Local philanthropists like Mason Holland, Nella Barkley, Carol Fishman, John Rivers, David Savard and Roger Jones are vital stimulators behind arts and education initiatives. Herbert Drayton III, current chairman of the Coastal Community Foundation, says there are broad opportunities for local investors with cash to make a difference in the Lowcountry. “There’s a lot of cash in this community, and I believe if these folks are really intent on investing in this community, there are opportunities to invest in,” he told the City Paper. Examples: Agriculture, including the nascent hemp industry; renewable energy, including innovative battery storage solutions; and technology, such as gaming innovations. Through the years, Charleston has accumulated a lot of charitably minded people. Let’s hope they’ll be inspired by Navarro to use their business skills and capital to step up and invest more in local businesses so we can keep more of our local money local. And as they boost local commitments, they should make sure these companies hire diverse local vendors as partners. That way, more people can succeed.

Equity commission remains ready to address racial justice issues By Seven commission members

• Black people earn 60% of what white counterparts earn. • 56% of Black residents has low or no access to healthy foods. • 42% of Black children under age 18 are living below the poverty line, compared to 11% of white children. • 83 officers of color out of 400 sworn police officers as of 2015. • The 2014 Black inmate population in Charleston County jail was 65%, though Black residents make up only 28% of the population. • Black students in the county graduate high school at a rate of 75% while white students graduate at a rate of 91%. • A disproportionate percentage of Black Charlestonians lack health insurance or a regular source of care. If we are indeed ready to move forward as a collective, we must first acknowledge the harm that has been done to Black and Brown people. City council must reconsider its action. It must accept the ordinance to create a permanent Commission on Equity, Inclusion and Racial Conciliation and begin deliberation on the recommendations contained in the commission’s report. Then, we can authentically and collaboratively reimagine systems that support liberty and justice for all. It is time for the city of Charleston to not just be the No. 1 tourist destination in the world but also the No. 1 city in the world for racial equity, inclusion and justice.

About the writers … Kimberly Butler, Daron Lee Calhoun, Tracy Doran, Jerome Harris, Alvin Johnson, Felice Knight and Crystal Rouse are community members appointed to Charleston’s Special Commission on Equity, Inclusion, and Racial Conciliation.

Charleston is the No. 1 city in the world, according to Travel + Leisure. Yet, we still have not reckoned with our historical ties to slavery and the legacies thereof. On June 9, 2020, Mayor John Tecklenburg and Charleston City Council passed an ordinance to create the Special Commission on Equity, Inclusion, and Racial Conciliation to “review city policies, practices, budget and other matters … related to addressing racism and racial inequities.” Furthermore, the mayor and city council charged the commission with making “recommendations to the City Council on ways to promote racial justice and racial equity in the city.” The city’s manager for equity, inclusion and racial conciliation, Amber Johnson, solicited expert volun- Instead of embracing teers from seven sectors to advise the work: housing a spirit of truth and and mobility, economic empowerment, health disparities and environmental justice, criminal jusconciliation, city tice, youth and education, history and culture, and council has censored internal review.

City council’s rejection of the commission’s report directly contradicts its stated commitment to address the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and present-day racially biased public policy, as was expressed in its 2018 apology for slavery. Instead of embracing a spirit of truth and conciliation, city council has censored a healthy discussion of possible solutions to blatant racial justice issues that have plagued our city for centuries.

KNOWING WHAT GOES IN THE BIN KEY TO CHARLESTON RECYCLING SUCCESS

N

estled off Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston, a short walk away from the landfill, sits the 82,000-square foot Material Recovery Facility (MRF), its warehouse walls lined with stacks of thousand-pound bales of recycled cardboard, newspapers, plastic and metal. It’s a sight — and smell — to behold. “It wasn’t until someone came in and said, ‘Hey, do you know there’s an odor in here?’ And I was like, ‘No!’ But there’s a landfill behind us, so that doesn’t help,” said Charleston County deputy director of public education and administration Shawn Smetana. Christina Moskos, program director for Charleston County’s MRF, opened in December 2020, said while the new facility is state-of-the-art, it still has a lot of limitations that it’s important for Smetana those in the Lowcountry to be aware of, lest they do more harm than good when it comes to recycling. Recycling is only as impactful as the people that buy into it, she said, both literally and figuratively. If residents treat their blue bins like a second garbage can, the program wouldn’t be as successful as it could be. But with full participation and a little diligence, a Moskos real difference could be seen. “Everything we receive here that is recyclable at our facility is given a new life, as opposed to ending up in a landfill,” Moskos said. “That’s the whole point behind it really — to save landfill space.” The confusing part, Moskos said, is that technically, the vast majority of materials can be recycled in some form or fashion. But recycling programs vary program by program and county by county, so things that could be processed elsewhere may not be able to be recycled in Charleston.

By Skyler Baldwin

Moskos said that if you aren’t sure whether or not a material can be recycled, it’s best to leave it out. “We coined the term ‘wish-cycling’ — people who say, ‘Oh, well this is a bulky plastic item or a metal item like a car part. I think it can be recycled; I’m going to put it in my cart, and you know, fingers crossed,’ ” she said. “That’s definitely detrimental. Contamination can harm our processing equipment, it can cause worker safety issues and it can devalue the material itself.” The value of the material is important, as it is the pri-

State-of-the-art processing equipment

Contaminants are made even more problematic by the facility’s system that automatically sorts and bales different recyclables, manned by a crew that helps to sift out nonrecyclables and stack thousands-pound bales of cans, cartons and paper. Lasers and robotics are able to sort cardboard, aluminum and other items swiftly and accurately, so long as materials are properly disposed of (don’t crush your cans, y’all). “The processing equipment here is really state of the art,” Moskos said. “We’re really utilizing the County Council’s vision of a regional recycling facility here. We’re accepting material from neighboring counties, and it’s all great.” And the MRF was built to handle the volume. The technologically advanced system is able to process 25 tons of recyclable material per hour, about five times faster than operations in other facilities, according to county officials. The whole process begins at the curb, where material is collected from more than 130,000 homes’ blue recycling carts, using side-loading trucks. It’s then taken directly to the MRF and processed and sorted according to type before being baled. Remanufacturers then buy the bales and begin the process of turning it into something entirely new. Similar processes are used across the country to recycle tons of tons of materials. According to county officials, nationwide:

“It’s so important that citizens understand how to recycle, how to recycle correctly and how to avoid contamination,” Moskos said. “ ‘Recycling-streaming contamination’ sounds like a big, scary phrase, but really, it just means any item that is not accepted for recycling here in Charleston County.” These contaminants include plastic bags or film; hoses, cords and belts, which can get tangled in the machinery; scrap metal; construction debris; clothing and textiles; medical waste; and food waste. These items entering the system can damage the machines or pose health risks for workers who hand-sorted through material.

mary source of revenue for the MRF. Once it’s processed, it is sold to remanufacturers. Exact costs and revenues for the new facility aren’t yet available. The MRF is able to recycle paper products like magazines, newspapers, office paper, envelopes, junk mail and paper bags; plastic bottles and containers; paperboard and flattened cardboard; aluminum, tin and steel cans; glass bottles and jars; and cartons for milk, juice, stock or even eggs. But Moskos said the MRF has gotten all sorts of items people attempt to recycle, including a sword, whole animals, air conditioning units and car parts, all of which pose a risk to the people and machines. “I see it happening every day,” Moskos said. “I can vouch for the fact that recycling is happening, but the reality of it is that we do receive items that are put in their carts at the curb that are not accepted at our program, and we have to dispose of those.”

The Material Recovery Facility houses an education center, complete with a wall of fast facts and do’s and don’ts when it comes to recycling in Charleston

• Paper material is made up of more than 33% recycled paper products • About 120,000 aluminum cans are recycled every minute • More than 600 steel and tin cans are recycled every second • An estimated 80% of all glass containers recovered for recycling are remelted in furnaces and used to make new glass products.


The Material Recovery Facility (above) uses state-ofthe-art processing equipment, including robotics and optical sorting

One of the many strange and/or dangerous items to come through the recycling center was this Bowie knife, safely pulled off the line before it could do any damage

The MRF is not just a functional recycling facility. A large portion of the building is dedicated to an interactive education center, with visual aids, games and examples to teach kids and adults about the impact of recycling as well as the dos and don’ts. “One of the selling points of this facility is that we have a state-of-the-art education center,” Smetana said. “We’re really looking forward to, when the pandemic allows, having schools back in here to do education programming.” An entire wall is decked out with fast facts, display cases of recyclable materials and more. The aforementioned sword recovered from the recycling line is on display in a sealed plastic case, as an example of what not to toss in your recycling bin. Smetana said while everybody should understand the recycling process and do their parts, the education is really geared toward kids. “Once the kids understand how to recycle correctly, they’re usually the ones directing the household,” he said. “And we have great opportunities for education here ... A lot of it is just looking to see what can be recycled and what can’t be.”

Born during pandemic shutdowns, Be Well Collective is looking beyond COVID for how it can help build community

Be Well Collective offers movement, mindfulness and meaningful connection

Arts 10.06.2021

By Chloe Hogan

14

Katy Firth and Kristen King formed Charleston-based virtual wellness project Be Well Collective in April in response to a changing landscape in Charleston’s wellness community. When COVID hit, many local yoga studios temporarily closed. Firth and King, who met seven years ago at Holy Cow Yoga Center, missed their sense of community, so the pair began taking regular walks together as a socially distanced activity. The conversation would often turn to concern about the local wellness community, with many teachers displaced. Firth and King wanted to provide a solution for students who were missing their fellow yogis and to bring together teachers to share their gifts on one virtual platform. But the mission of Be Well Collective extends past yoga, aiming to meet the needs of the community through its mission of “movement, mindfulness and meaningful connection.” Offerings encourage connectivity with classes like Yoga for Self Care, Mindfulness 101 and Relax and Renew. “During the pandemic, people have gotten even more stressed and anxious,” Firth said. “So we want to provide a space

for people to sit, breathe and figure out ways to calm ourselves. And that doesn’t have to just be physical movement.” Firth moved from Boston and did yoga teacher training in 2013 at Holy Cow, where she established relationships that she and others missed during COVID shutdowns. “There’s not that space where they see and talk to each other,” she said. That in-person studio experience is what Firth focuses on replicating virtually with Be Well. Sarah Hogan teaches a beginner yoga class, which starts at just $5. “I want to appeal to beginners and people who have been curious about yoga but have held themselves back out of fear — maybe they feel that they don’t belong or don’t fit a certain ideal of what a ‘yoga practitioner’ looks like,” she said. Hogan invites her students to be comfortable in their own spaces, to turn off the camera if they want to — the virtual element may help to encourage those who haven’t felt comfortable or encouraged in an in-person studio, she believes. King channels her background in nursing and health promotion into teaching a donation-based yoga class for cancer patients and survivors that can be done

from the comfort of a chair. A class that’s specifically designed for a student’s needs can help them feel cared for “spiritually, physically and emotionally,” she said. To transition virtual classes to in-person sessions, Be Well has collaborated with organizations to host events with the added element of connecting with nature. One class on Johns Island is hosted outdoors at Sea Island Savory Herb Farm. Firth and King hope to expand Be Well’s scope, possibly adding Tai-Chi, Chi-Gong and maybe even cooking classes. The collective is also seeking diverse wellness practitioners and remains open to suggestions on what classes participants would like to see. The founders see potential for a physical studio but for now are focusing on growing their community. “There are so many great yoga studios in town and a big wellness community,” King said. “But we wanted to create a space where everybody feels welcome. So if you don’t like hot yoga, or power yoga — they’re great, but they’re not for everybody — we wanted to create a space for anybody who thought maybe they didn’t have a place in this community.” Learn more at bewellcollective.com.

Greg Sestero will be at The Terrace Oct. 9 to present The Room and Miracle Valley (above) rare bird. With hopes of finding fame, fortune and a way to fix their relationship, the couple find themselves facing their own demons while trying to escape a sinister cult. Sestero visited a dazzling array of locales to make the film, including the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home, Falling Water. But more than anything, Sestero said he got to tackle his favorite genre, ’70s horror, and a subject that has often interested him: cults. But while the Jonestown massacre, the Manson murders and the Miracle Valley cult are equally repellent and fascinating, Sestero was more interested in how they flourish in the first place. “Cults will bind people together, traffic people, but this cult is very different. It almost ties into a type of trafficking that we've never really come across, blood trafficking,” he said. “I read this article that was really fascinating, late one night, in a hotel in Iceland. I couldn't really sleep and it was snowing outside, and I came across a piece about rare blood types and people using their blood to heal things. There are very few people out there that have a specific blood type, and that really fascinated me. That's kind of what I tried to tie in with this film.” With his first film completed and making the rounds, Sestero, who also stars in the film, reflected on the directing process: “It's a lot of mental preparation, and a lot of studying of what each scene wants to say and how you're going to approach it,” he said. “I think a big part of making a film … is casting the right people,” he said. “You can let them do their thing, and you can just guide them, and they can step down to just be themselves.”

An artist’s ambition always has a starting point. Greg Sestero has been noodling on film ideas his whole life, culminating in Miracle Valley, the film he's touring through Charleston this week. For Sestero, best known as Johnny’s duplicitous best friend Mark in the so-badit’s-good classic, The Room, one of his early bolts of inspiration came thanks to a trip to the most magical place on earth and Kevin McAlister. “I had gone on a trip to Disney World as a kid. I was, like, 12, and I came back ,and I was just so, you know, to be back in the real world. So I started writing a script [and] combined the two things that I Sestero love the most at the time: Home Alone and Disney World. I wrote a script that had a role for myself opposite Macaulay Culkin and we were based in Disney World on vacation. I was an older friend, and we were fighting off the bad guys. I’m using all the rides there and recreating scenes,” Sestero told the City Paper. “I tracked down [director] John Hughes’ production company in Illinois and sent him a script, and in my package, I put in there that it'd be a really good crossover marketing for Disney and Home Alone to come together. And now they're doing that. But back in the early ’90s, it was a far-fetched idea. But that's kind of what I was like, I’d love to tell stories and make movies.” Sestero will visit the Terrace Theater Oct. 9 to present The Room and Miracle Valley, based on a 1982 shootout in Arizona where law enforcement faced down a religious cult. Now touring his film throughout the country, Sestero recalled his last visit to the Lowcountry for his book, The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made. “I came to visit in 2014 when the book first came out,” Sestero remembered. “What I noticed, looking back, is obviously how good the food is, the bars and the scene downtown. I love live music, I guess I felt like I was in a Southern Disneyland. It felt like something caught in time that was just so much fun.” The book recounts the events that led up to the creation of the 2003 disasterpiece and has since been adapted into a successful film starring James Franco. In Miracle Valley, an obsessive photographer and his girlfriend are invited to a desert getaway in search of an ultra-

Torrey Sanders, expeditor at Babas on Cannon, compared the job to going to a party you only sort of had a hand in planning

Babas expeditor Torrey Sanders stays busy

Cuisine 10.06.2021

Think of an expeditor, or expo, as a fixer, problem solver, a jack of all trades. It’s a role Babas on Cannon’s Torrey Sanders, 28, was prepared for after serving as a manager at Black Cat, a 28-year-old Washington, D.C., music venue. “I’d been working in the music industry leading up to COVID,” Sanders said. “I was doing a lot of what I do at Babas, just in one of these institution dive bar spots. I was kind of like the answer to the band’s tour manager.” Sanders coordinated with Black Cat’s rotating lineup of bands and spent time behind the venue’s bar, while also working as a marketing manager for a different venue group. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Sanders realized she was ready for a change of scenery. “I used that downtime to figure out what was next,” said Sanders, who moved to Charleston in 2020. “I wanted to get back into hospitality leading up to that. I had been going to Babas as a customer, and I saw that they were hiring back in May. I was like, ‘I want to work somewhere that has a culture.’ I just loved the stuff that they make.”

Babas hired Sanders just before Memorial Day 2021, and she says it took a month to find her footing at the Europeanstyle cafe, where owner Edward Crouse takes attention to detail to another level. Sanders recalls pulling her first shot of espresso and perusing Google Docs, recipe books and sticky notes with intricate details on how Babas operates. In July, she officially became the expo, a role that’s in place at casual and fine dining restaurants to ensure guests are happy and food is delivered on time. According to Crouse, Sanders “presides over the guest experience in the evenings for us as our expo as we do not have typical servers, hosts [and] floor managers positions.” She describes it less formally. “Being an expo at Babas is like you are arriving at a party that you sort of planned, but you also had a bunch of other co-hosts and the party is in full swing,” said Sanders, whose shift starts at 2 p.m., seven hours after the all-day cafe/bar opens. Dishwasher’s broken? “Find Torrey!” A table outside is getting rowdy? “Where’s Torrey?!” You get the point. “Basically, you’re the host of the party/

problem solver filling in the holes when they arise,” Sanders said. It’s a high pressure, exciting, dailychanging role in which Sanders thrives, according to Crouse. “She brings great vibes, curiosity and passion every day. She never loses sight of the guest experience,” he said. “She sees that execution and technique are critical to the quality and consistency we provide, but she understands those elements are a means to an end that the goal is to always show folks a good time.” Sanders cautions those considering entering or re-entering the food and beverage industry to be careful about where they choose to work. At Babas, the customers, culture and compensation are top-notch, she said. “I’m very pleased with the pay that I’m getting — it feels very competitive. I’m making more than a salaried marketing role back in D.C,” she said. “After working a nineto-five, there’s just something that I always love about walking into a space and being like, ‘OK, what do I need to do?’ So I think for people who find themselves doing better at work that is more people-focused, I would highly recommend it.”

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries poet Anna Kamienska said her soul didn’t emanate light. It was filled with “bright darkness.” I suspect that description may apply to you in the coming weeks. Bright darkness will be one of your primary qualities. And that’s a good thing! You may not be a beacon of shiny cheer, but you will illuminate the shadows and secrets. You will bring deeper awareness to hidden agendas and sins of omission. You will see, and help others to see, what has been missing in situations that lack transparency. Congratulations in advance! TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “There is something truly restorative, finally comforting, in coming to the end of an illusion — a false hope.” So declared author Sue Miller, and now I’m sharing it with you, Taurus — just in time for the end of at least one of your illusions. (Could be two, even three.) I hope your misconceptions or misaligned fantasies will serve you well as they decay and dissolve. I trust they will be excellent fertilizer, helping you grow inspired visions that guide your future success. My prediction: You will soon know more about what isn’t real, which will boost your ability to evaluate what is real. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Afghan-American novelist Khaled Hosseini writes, “People mostly have it backward. They think they live by what they want. But really what guides them is what they’re afraid of — what, they don’t want.” Is that true for you, Gemini? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to meditate on that question. And if you find you’re motivated to live your life more out of fear than out of love, I urge you to take strenuous action to change that situation! Make sure love is at least 51 percent and fear no more than 49 percent. I believe you can do much better than that, though. Aim for 75 percent love! CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Sometimes, dreams are wiser than waking.” Oglala Lakota medicine man Black Elk said that, and now I’m passing it on to you. It’s not always the case that dreams are wiser than waking, of course, but I suspect they will be for you in the coming weeks. The adventures you experience while you’re sleeping could provide crucial clues to inform your waking-life decisions. They should help you tune into resources and influences that will guide you during the coming months. And now, I will make a bold prediction: that your dreams will change your brain chemistry in ways that enable you to see truths that until now have been invisible or unavailable. (PS: I encourage you to also be alert for intriguing insights and fantasies that well up when you’re tired or lounging around.) LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Don’t hope more than you’re willing to work,” advises author Rita Mae Brown. So let me ask you, Leo: How hard are you willing to work to make your dreams come true, create your ideal life, and become the person you’d love to be? When you answer that question honestly, you’ll know exactly how much hope you have earned the right to foster. I’m pleased to inform you that the coming weeks will be a favorable time to upgrade your commitment to the work and therefore deepen your right to hope. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “To be truly visionary, we have to root our imagination in our concrete reality while simultaneously imagining possibilities beyond that reality.” This shrewd advice comes from author bell hooks (who doesn’t capitalize her name). I think it should be at the heart of your process in the coming days. Why? Because you now have an extraordinary potential to dream up creative innovations that acknowledge your limitations but also transcend those limitations. You have extra power available to harness your fantasies and instigate practical changes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Some people are crazy drunk on rotgut sobriety,” wrote aphorist Daniel Liebert. I trust you’re not one of them. But if you are, I beg you to change your habits during the next three weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you have a heavenly mandate to seek more than the usual amounts of whimsical

ebullience, sweet diversions, uplifting obsessions and holy amusements. Your health and success in the coming months require you to enjoy a period of concentrated joy and fun now. Be imaginative and innovative in your quest for zest. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scottish Poet Laureate Jackie Kay, born under the sign of Scorpio, writes, “It used to be that privacy came naturally to everybody and that we understood implicitly what kind of things a person might like to keep private. Now, somebody has torn up the rule book on privacy, and there’s a kind of free fall and free for all, and few people naturally know how to guard this precious thing, privacy.” The coming weeks will be a good time for you to investigate this subject, Scorpio — to take it more seriously than you have before. In the process, I hope you will identify what’s truly important for you to keep confidential and protected, and then, initiate the necessary adjustments. (PS: Please feel no guilt or embarrassment about your desire to have secrets!) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “All our Western thought is founded on this repulsive pretense that pain is the proper price of any good thing,” wrote feisty author Rebecca West (1892– 1983). I am very happy to report that your current torrent of good things will NOT require you to pay the price of pain. On the contrary, I expect that your phase of grace and luck will teach you how to cultivate even more grace and luck; it will inspire you to be generous in ways that bring generosity coming back your way. As articulated by ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, here’s the operative principle: “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “If you don’t ask, the answer is always no,” declares author Nora Roberts. In that spirit and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to be bold and lucid about asking for what you want in the coming weeks. In addition, I encourage you to ask many probing questions so as to ferret out the best ways to get what you want. If you are skilled in carrying out this strategy, you will be a winsome blend of receptivity and aggressiveness, innocent humility and understated confidence. And that will be crucial in your campaign to get exactly what you want. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Few persons enjoy real liberty,” wrote poet Alfred de Musset. “We are all slaves to ideas or habits.” That’s the bad news. The good news is that October is Supercharge Your Freedom Month for you Aquarians. I invite you to use all your ingenuity to deepen, augment, and refine your drive for liberation. What could you do to escape the numbness of the routine? How might you diminish the hold of limiting beliefs and inhibiting patterns? What shrunken expectations are impinging on your motivational verve? Life is blessing you with the opportunity to celebrate and cultivate what novelist Tim Tharp calls “the spectacular now.” Be a cheerful, magnanimous freedom fighter. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The brilliant Piscean composer Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849) wrote, “I wish I could throw off the thoughts that poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.” What?! That’s crazy! If he had been brave enough and willful enough to stop taking pleasure in indulging his toxic thoughts, they might have lost their power to demoralize him. With this in mind, I’m asking you to investigate whether you, like Chopin, ever get a bit of secret excitement from undermining your own joy and success. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to dissolve that bad habit. Homework. Hold your own hand, and tell yourself what you will do to end a nagging discomfort in your life. https://Newsletter.FreeWillAstrology.com.

“Music is going to do what it’s always going to do,” said guitarist Lee Barbour, a staple in Charleston music not only as a songwriter but as a producer, composer, Ohm Radio co-founder and ringleader of jazz ensemble Gradual Lean. “It’s going to uplift people. It’s going to help people. It’s going to make them feel things they may not have been able to feel before they heard it.” He believes music reminds us all that it will always be there to be counted on. “We are the ones changing. Our culture is changing and this pandemic has changed the way we relate to each other. Music is a constant.” The first time he heard jazz was a When Harry Met Sally soundtrack on tape. “The sound of the bass really moved me, all the arrangements. I didn’t know anything about it, but I knew that I really liked it and was really attracted to it.” He ended up coming back to jazz in college, studying it in lieu of classical music, drawn by the improvisational nature of the genre that was similar to the jam music he was fond of. These days, Barbour navigates the throes of time management that inevitably come with being a musician and a parent. His role as a dad has honed his ability to focus when he has the chance to write a chart or compose, even if it’s only 20 minutes. Gone are the days of having six or seven hours in the studio to explore different patches or build out arrangements. “What I really didn’t see coming is how much I would open up as a person, how much having a child has really opened me up as a musician. I think that’s really

Guitarist Lee Barbour turns to more eclectic music projects upon the release of Influencers, his new record that interprets classic jazz standards affected my music and how it’s coming out. It’s just a lot of weight that came to me kind of quickly, and I had to learn how to deal with it and it made me so much better in that I had to be vulnerable and responsible — it just naturally deepened my emotional intelligence.” The odd thing about Charleston to Barbour is that there really isn’t a music industry despite the saturating talent. He’s been working with now-local producer Majeed Fick, who spent years in the L.A. and Miami scenes, and hopes that as new projects are released with a measure of success, they can create a production model and network to benefit local musicians. “The infrastructure wasn’t there when I was young and coming up, and I guess I figured at some point there would be something, and there still isn’t,” Barbour said. “It’s become clear that no one is coming to save us, and we have to do it ourselves — and that’s fine.” One of his current projects is a jazz album, entitled Influencers, an amalgam of jazz standards from the likes of Duke Ellington, John Coltrane and Miles Davis.

“I did some light arranging, but mostly I just wanted to play the songs and let them stand on their own and really show off the composers of these tunes and just play the tunes and improvise over them. I wanted to honor the composers who were original influencers of jazz and who wrote main tunes for jazz musicians to interpret.” For the new album, Barbour put together two bands of local musicians that included Jonathan Lovett, Demetrius Doctor, Quentin Baxter, Charlton Singleton and Ron Wiltrout. Mixing the project was a virtual collaborative process with Fick. “We were mixing by phone in tandem with our computers. I would say, ‘Oh right here turn the sax up.’ It was extremely time intensive mixing this album because it was all done pretty much after the recording,” Barbour said. Centering his attention on increasing his skillset as a guitarist requires him to wear many different hats as he books gigs for himself and his various projects while producing new original music — what he calls “electronica indie jazz.” Barbour has tracks in the works with local singer-songwriter Heather Rice, his shape-shifting group Polyverse featuring Snarky Puppy trumpeter Justin Stanton and Kebbi Williams of Tedeschi Trucks. “I wanted to honor the lineage that I’ve learned so much, and now that I’ve done that it just feels like the doors are wide open.”

Leopard and the Diamond Sky releases debut album, Magick Psychedelic pop-rock outfit Leopard and the Diamond Sky has a distinct, multifaceted vision of what music can be. Formerly Community Pool, the band went through a transformation during the COVID-times of 2020, deciding on a different name to usher in a new era of music making. “It was a departure from what was before, and a name that felt more fitting,” said Matt Varner, also known by his artist moniker Leopard Lee. The band’s current iteration consists of Varner and longtime friends and collaborators drummer John Gornati (who goes by J Renaldo when recording music) and bassist Russell Green, plus the addition of keyboardist Erel Piro. Not only does each member provide vocals, but they are also all multi-instrumentalists, often trading off playing each other’s instruments live. Leopard and the Diamond Sky’s longawaited debut album, Magick, dropped Oct. 1. It was recorded at and released through the Secret Cottage, the band’s home recording studio that also serves as a record label and creative collective. “In the modern world, the music/arts industry is very large and saturated and Secret Cottage is sort of our own little universe,” Varner said. “It’s the umbrella we operate under and an avenue for promoting all of the projects born in and around the cottage.” Magick is a nine-song album that combines elements of classic poprock with dreamy electronica. The lo-fi soundscape is also peppered with references to New Wave and the shoegaze-era, achieved with authenticity through the use of the vintage recording gear at the Secret Cottage studio. “I imagine it could potentially be some-

Local dream pop outfit Community Pool reemerges as Leopard and the Diamond Sky what jarring to someone upon first listen of the album if they were not familiar with what we’re about,” said Varner. “I love music that sounds like it’s from a different time — whether it be the past or the future — or maybe both at the same time. Trying to emulate that is what I’m after.” Fans can expect to experience Magick live toward the end of this year. Leopard and the Diamond Sky intends for the experience to be multidimensional, employing alternate personas to push the boundaries of what it means to see a band live. “Leopard Lee to me is like Ziggy Stardust to Bowie. It’s a character I play, but very much a reflection of part of my inner self,” Varner said of his alter-ego. He and the group are looking forward to creating an immersive experience for concert-goers. “I’ve always been attracted to making it more than just a band.” —Kate Bryan
