Rundown Charleston police chief to undergo ‘rigorous’ cancer treatment


Teacher surveys reveal grave concerns in classrooms, lack of innovation

News 11.10.2021

By Skyler Baldwin


Responses to a survey from 853 educators in the Charleston County School District (CCSD) detail a bleak education experience on both sides of the teacher’s desk, with concerns ranging from the number of responsibilities levied on teachers to impact from and response to the pandemic. Put together and submitted to district leaders by the Charleston Teacher Alliance (CTA), the report highlighted a number of findings and included quoted responses from anonymous teachers gathered between Sept. 30 and Oct. 12. Normally conducted during winter, CTA director and Moultrie Middle School teacher Jody Stallings said he had been hearing and experiencing many of the reported concerns earlier than expected. “The sooner you attack these problems, Stallings the better chance the kids have to learn,” he said. “It’s a long year, and to be as stressful as it has been this early — usually the first of the year is a sort of honeymoon phase; it’s not usually until the end of the year you hear that twothirds of teachers are ready to give up.” And it seems the CTA and teachers have some backing of higher-ups. In a letter response to the report, CCSD Board of Trustees Chairman Eric Mack summarized

priority concerns and relayed his appreciation for the CTA’s work compiling the survey results. “You have our assurance that we take these concerns quite seriously and that we will work over the coming weeks to implement measures to alleviate stressors to the extent feasible,” Mack wrote. But according to survey results, only 21%

of teachers who responded believe CCSD officials value their teachers and 13% feel supported by the school board Mack leads. Numbers vary by school, with one reporting 0% of respondents feeling supported by district leaders. “Last year, we started with a real spirit CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

Some of the survey responses by anonymous CCSD teachers “When 40 minutes of your time is spent on duty, it takes away time from helping your students. I have turned students away who were asking for extra help, I have turned students away who came to me crying, and I have not had the opportunity to pull a student aside for a brief conference because of duty.” “Teacher morale is lower than I have ever seen it, and I’ve been in education for 31 years. With substitute teachers not being available and teacher absences high, teachers are covering other teachers’ classes during their planning periods, giving them no downtime. Often, these classes have been left with no lesson plans for the students.” “I will be leaving the profession this year after more than 20 years. The amount of work unapologetically being put on teachers is unacceptable.”

“I think about quitting on a regular basis.” “We are drowning in the pressure! I have been a teacher for 28 years and this has been one of the worst I have ever had. More and more is being asked of us, and we are more micromanaged than ever before … We don’t have time in the day to breathe. Our students are listening to teacher-directed instruction almost all day long, and I feel like we are ‘burning and churning’ a generation of students whose attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. “ “There is just too much to do and too many non-teaching demands being put on teachers. Most parents are great, but the ones who aren’t behave so poorly it’s hard to continue as a teacher. The attacks are vicious, and my principal says nothing to defend us or to quell the storm.”

Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds on Nov. 3 announced he will be undergoing treatment for cancer. In a video message first reported by the City Paper, Reynolds said after a visit to the doctor four weeks ago for back soreness, he found Reynolds out he had cancer. Reynolds wrote in a memo to Mayor John Tecklenburg and city officials that after consultation with MUSC physicians, his “rigorous treatment plan” will include surgery and chemotherapy. No other details about his diagnosis have been provided. “While this news was met with equal parts shock and sadness from myself and my family, it was also met with our collective resolve to confront this challenge head-on,” he said in the memo provided to the City Paper. Reynolds will continue to serve in his capacity as chief, he said, but other senior personnel may step in periodically as needed. —Sam Spence

“As a pediatrician, families trust me to be honest with them . ..” MUSC pediatrician Dr. Annie Andrews became the first Democrat Nov. 8 to announce a bid for the 1st Congressional District against Republican U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace.

SC government to have extra billion in cash in coming year

Lowcountry Local First encourages local holiday spending Lowcountry Local First’s (LLF) Buy Local Season campaign launched Nov. 1 and will run through the end of the year. The organization’s annual buy local effort aims to emphasize the benefits of shopping at local businesses and encourage the community to support independent retailers. “We believe our dollars are actually votes for the kind of place we want to live in,” said Jordan Amaker, LLF director of marketing, in a press release. “Every dollar we spend with a local business — be it retail, with a service provider or an experience — has the power to recirculate throughout the community, being passed along from local business to another and supporting a healthy local economy.” The theme “Buy Local, Feel Good” was chosen for 2021 as a reminder that buying local is a feel-good activity. It gives local business owners a sense of accomplishment and pride while also reminding shoppers that buying local is a rewarding experience that enhances our community. To incentivize shoppers, LLF will host five happy hour events with raffle prizes for shoppers who bring their receipts from participating local businesses. Prizes include Croghan’s jewelry, autographed books by local authors, Charleston restaurant gift cards, spa treatments and more. Each Saturday through Dec. 11, LLF will host a happy hour in a different part of town from downtown to Summerville, rewarding shoppers who purchased from local businesses in that area. This Saturday’s is 4-5 p.m. at Florence’s Lowcountry Kitchen in Mount Pleasant. —Samantha Connors

Roper Hospital to leave peninsula Roper St. Francis Healthcare, which runs one of the three hospitals in downtown Charleston’s medical district, announced plans Nov. 3 to move its flagship hospital off the peninsula, citing the threat of continued flooding, earthquakes and other natural disasters. The company’s long-term Roper St. Francis Healthcare (RSFH) 2030 plan focuses on “moving Roper Hospital from the Charleston peninsula so patients can more easily access care closer to where they live and work,” according to a press release. A location for the new hospital will be announced “in the coming weeks,” according to the release. “Whether you live in downtown Charleston or the farthest reaches of Berkeley, Dorchester and Charleston counties, Roper St. Francis Healthcare will be a short drive away to serve your health-care needs,” said Dr. Jeffrey DiLisi, RSFH president and CEO.

Roper Hospital is a 332-bed facility that opened in its current Calhoun Street location around 1950. RSFH operates four other hospitals in the Charleston area. Roper’s move comes as Charleston leaders, along with the federal government, scramble to address the long-term impacts of climate change on the peninsula, where water levels are rising and sunny-day flooding is a common occurrence. City-contracted consultants evaluated the medical district as its own distinct challenge in compiling the exhaustive Dutch Dialogues report that charts recommendations on how to live with water as one of the impacts of the changing climate. But while Roper may be eyeing plans elsewhere, the Medical University of South Carolina, which has the largest footprint in the medical district, continues its expansion downtown and last year opened its new children’s hospital tower. —Sam Spence

Bowden, Parker set to join Charleston council


Charleston City Council will have two new members in January, with Stephen Bowden and Caroline Parker unseating first-term incumbents Nov. 2. Across the river, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie cruised to reelection as well. One-term Charleston City Councilman Harry Griffin conceded shortly after the polls closed to challenger Bowden, a county public defender, wishing him good luck and thanking supporters. “Thank you, District 10, for giving me the greatest honor of my young life. It has been a pleasure serving you these past four years,” Griffin wrote on Facebook. “Congratulations to Stephen Bowden and best of luck.” By the numbers, Bowden trounced Griffin in the low-turnout election, earning 934 of

1,514 votes cast — 61.7% of the vote. On James Island, Councilwoman Carol Jackson lost to challenger Caroline Parker by more than 120 votes. Downtown, longBowden time Councilman Robert Mitchell won reelection against retired marine engineer Tim Weber. With all precincts reported, Mitchell led Weber by 53%. Election results showed Haynie defeating Landing 58.1% to 40.4%. Brandon Armstrong, a third candidate, picked up 1.4% support. Over 1,570 people turned out for the



Mount Pleasant election, the highest vote total of any Charleston-area municipal election. Landing, a financial planner by trade, also ran unsuccessfully in 2020 for the Republican nomination for the 1st Congressional District race eventually won by Nancy Mace. —Sam Spence

South Carolina economists are expected to announce that state lawmakers will have an extra billion dollars to spend in the 2022-23 budget thanks to federal pandemic relief funds and better-thanforecasted tax revenue collections. The state Board of Economic Advisers will release projected revenue numbers during a 1 p.m. meeting on Nov. 10, according to two Statehouse insiders who asked not to be named. “We’re on a sugar-high,” one analyst observed. “Part of it is due to underforecasted revenues” because economists widely predicted state revenues to take a big hit because of the coronavirus pandemic. But that didn’t happen. While some businesses across the state continue to struggle with revenue shortfalls, they appear to be the exception, as highlighted by a number of trends: • Booming port. Activity through the S.C. Ports Authority, one of the state’s strongest drivers of economic activity, is at an all-time high thanks to longterm strategic investments that make Charleston’s deep port an attraction to global shippers. “S.C. Ports has the berth availability, cargo capacity and fluidity to handle the record cargo volumes and unprecedented amount of retail imports flowing into the Port of Charleston,” S.C. Ports President and CEO Jim Newsome said last month. • Return of tourism. Walk the streets of any coastal town and you’ll find crowded restaurants, bars and hotels — a sure sign that tourism is back. • Low unemployment. The state’s unemployment rate is 4.2% now, three times lower than what it was at the peak of the pandemic. Low rates mean residents are bringing home paychecks and, in turn, boosting local and state tax revenues. • Big surplus. Not only is $1 billion in extra revenue projected over the next year, but the state also had $1.02 billion in unspent cash at the close of the 2021 fiscal year in June. That gives state lawmakers an enormous pool of money to make investments in education, roads, health care and more. Part of South Carolina’s positive cash flow comes from $13.7 billion in federal funding received in recent months, including $8.9 billion from the American Rescue Plan Act passed by Congress and $2.7 billion from the CARES Act. —CP Staff


of collaboration, ‘This is a new thing; let’s work together and make the best of it as we can,’ ” Stallings said. “This year, it was sort of the sense of, ‘Well, this is just another year.’ Then the delta variant came in, and it wasn’t a normal year. Losing that spirit of collaboration has really cost us.” Stallings said the majority of the problems stem from the unexpected continuation of the pandemic due to the delta surge. “It thrusted itself on us suddenly,” he said. “It had felt like things were winding down, and then it immediately became our focus again without us being able to anticipate it. We all had this idea that the vaccines were going to fix everything, but they didn’t. We did have kids in quarantine. We did have kids in hybrid classrooms, and that startled everybody. We thought it was going to be back to normal, and it wasn’t.” And while some saw opportunity for positive, and in some places radical, change in the education system, the pandemic being brought back to the forefront left little opportunity for innovation. “There were some changes the district was thinking about bringing in, but the first thing we heard was that we had to hold off on that stuff — we couldn’t try too much at once,” Stallings said. And with students coming in after a year of well-documented educational hardship, teachers are reporting higher levels of student need, and greater concern regarding discipline. “Students are just bringing a lot of baggage with them,” Stallings said. “When you realize how much more your kids need from you and how much more difficult it is to teach through the other issues … it’s just a bombardment of things all at one time. You feel like you’re under siege.” According to survey responses, 79% of teachers say their students’ needs are greater than last year. All the while, teachers are reporting concerns with having to learn and implement new curriculums, tech systems and duty responsibilities and attend more meetings than ever before. And the issues are compounded by a notso-new problem: a shortage of vital staff. The existing teacher shortage has only been exacerbated by the pandemic, and with support staff shortages being reported across the nation, including nurses, subsittute teachers and even bus drivers, teachers feel more alone than ever. “CTA provides the only opportunity for me to voice my concerns and difficulties with the district,” one anonymous survery response reads. “I feel as though the voices of teachers are mostly ignored in favor of what the district would like to do.” “We are overworked, underpaid and under-appreicated,” reads another. “It is demoralizing.”

Hitting the reset button on Charleston City Council W

ith two new faces set to join Charleston City Council come January, it’s time for Charleston elected officials to double down to make progress on fundamental issues that affect people across the Holy City. It’s time for active leadership that shrugs off political hijinks and stops running in place, just to make it to the end of a meeting. Here are two ways council can start to regain the trust of local residents:

Readdress equity commission

Views 11.10.2021

There’s no way around it: City council screwed up its handling of the report compiled by the Special Commission on Equity, Inclusion and Racial Conciliation. A year after it created the commission and asked it to unearth hard truths about how and where city government systematically disadvantages its own residents, council members cried crocodile tears over just how serious the findings and the recommendations were. In a shameful, inscrutable political move, council members (and the challengers eventually elected) threw up their hands at mentions of critical race theory and reparations. Race-baiting conservative and so-called progressive members of council united with dishonest disavowals of the commission they created, successfully sinking the group’s report and possibly its existence — along with any goodwill that remained. City council must revisit the special commission report. Take it seriously. Look beyond kneejerk fear of right-wing puppets who will criticize with dog-whistle talking points. Show some guts. Smart, dedicated people who share the city put their time and energy into this report. It deserves your consideration, not unilateral dismissal. Instead of arguing about what you don’t like,


grow up and agree on what you do — and start implementing those recommendations in an orderly, sustained manner.

Figure out public meetings

City leaders must figure out a good way to meet in person again. Remote meetings were necessary and did the job for a while, but it’s time to get into one room consistently and address urgent issues that have backed up. Furthermore, council must run its meetings in a more orderly manner, not letting side issues skew discussions for hours on end. Residents need to have a way to speak face-to-face with the people who represent them. Yes, the historic council chambers at city hall may still be too small for local COVID-19 counts, but there is a way to do it. Find a convention hall, a gym, anywhere so people can comfortably and safely attend public meetings if they desire. Attempts at finding a satellite home for council have sputtered so far, from an outing overrun by anti-maskers at Daniel Island’s new rec center to a poorly lit and miked retreat into Festival Hall downtown. Smaller board and committee meetings should be even easier, yet most are still held via Zoom. (For what it’s worth, North Charleston City Council never met remotely, and made do with meetings in city-run event space at North Charleston Coliseum.) Next, improve video archives of meetings. In September, council signed off on spending $54,000 to record and broadcast remote meetings, but the livestreams that many residents rely on still look and sound like home movies. Come on. All of this shouldn’t be so hard. It has been 18 months, after all. Figure it out. Get to work.

SC gun shop’s abusive product represents real threat to democracy By Andy Brack

Quite a few people would hit the ceiling. Somewhere, there would be blood in the street. Most likely, the store would face a riot reminiscent of what happened Jan. 6 when right-wing, authoritarian zealots stormed the U.S. Capitol in a fury of treasonous gall now seen as the most serious threat to our democracy in generations. So now, let’s turn to a surprising story last week in Columbiabased newspaper The State. Seems like the Einsteins at gun shops operated by Palmetto State Armory are offering a gun accessory for AR-15s with three settings that slam President Joe Biden, not Trump, just like in the imaginary example above. Protests? Riots? Nope. Reactions are giggles or intelAll Americans must lectual disappointment or cries that a business has far take this kind of overstepped the bounds of decency. But no violence. In other words, many South Carolinians just shake seditious nonsense their heads and think, “Well, that’s the way it is here.” Unacceptable. It shouldn’t be this way. We shouldn’t more seriously. So blithely accept such obscene criticism of Biden, much shame on Palmetto less any president or elected leader. All Americans must take this kind of seditious nonsense more seriState Armory for ously. So shame on Palmetto State Armory for this this latest incendiary latest incendiary entry into the marketplace. It’s vile, wrong and highly inappropriate. It further fans the entry into the flames splitting our country. marketplace. That’s why we suggest all South Carolinians — gun owners and those who don’t own guns — should boycott the business, which is preying on people’s political opinions to do what it really wants to do — sell more guns and make more millions a year by arming South Carolina. Don’t Palmetto State Armory’s customers realize they’re being used by the company’s clever marketers? We support responsible gun ownership. But anyone who crawls out from under a rock just to sell something that says “F@CK! JOE! BIDEN!” is the lowest of the low. It’s not funny. It’s not something children should be subjected to. It’s certainly not something that would make a grandmama proud. About the It’s virtually impossible to talk with any of the leaders at Palmetto writer … State Armory.

We tried to send a message through its lobbying publisher of firm, Nelson Mullins, which has received $100,000 in the last year to Charleston represent the company on federal gun issues. Again, nothing.

Unfortunately, some of them are more interested in dividing America. Just look at how U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina has been wearing a “Let’s Go Brandon” mask. The phrase is a politically abusive meme among right-wingers that is nothing more than more coded ridicule of Biden. Stop fomenting division. Start making American work by pulling out the partisan earplugs, listening and compromising. That’s the real American way.

If you checked out artist Kala Kannisto’s V mask from the movie, V for Vendetta, you might marvel at the way light reflects off the porcelain finish of the mask. You’d then have your mind blown when you realized that it’s not a light reflection, but an intentional makeup effect. “That’s a hard effect to get right,” Kannisto said. Kannisto finished the makeup at home and was about to post her work on Instagram, only to have her power go out. She sat in her car, charging her phone, as the power company arrived to restore service — “slumped down in my car, hoping that strangers didn’t see a scary V for Vendetta!” The concern is valid, because Kannisto’s makeup designs are immaculately done. Her instagram page (@kmk.creations) is full of her incredibly detailed makeup effects. She’s done dozens of character faces and effects makeup, from Disney villains like Ursula and Maleficent to original creations like mermaids. Kannisto recently did a run of 31 different looks on Instagram to celebrate October and Halloween. “I honestly started out of boredom, during quarantine,” Kannisto said. “It was something that I always wanted to try and I always had an interest in. I’ve been inspired by people over the years and never really had the time to sit and teach myself how to do it. So I really Kannisto utilized that time at the start of COVID and did everything to stay busy and learn something new and have an artistic outlet.” A big Disney fan, Kannisto started her makeup journey with an Ursula look, from the Disney classic, The Little Mermaid. Originally posted in March 2020, her initial take on the character is big and bold, with cartoon lines and big features. Revisiting the character a few months later, Kannisto gave her a more natural look but added octopus arms to the shoulders to embody

One of makeup artist Kala Kannisto’s latest pieces is this massive-scale depiction of Venom, titular character of the Marvel franchise the character. A side-by-side of the two versions show the growth Kannisto made in just those first few initial months. “I posted it in this Disney World Facebook group that I’m part of, and people loved it,” Kannisto recalled. “I had thousands of likes on it, and I was just completely blown away. I guess people might like this so maybe I should put it out there more formally.” Kannisto, who also paints in watercolors and teaches salsa dancing, pivoted her arts-focused Instagram page over primarily to the makeup effects. Most of her knowledge comes from trial and error. She takes inspiration from other artists, seeing things that she wants to achieve and challenging herself to recreate them. Her hardest challenge turned out to be her personal favorite: an eye-popping rendition of the comic book character Venom. Painted on a friend, the creation covers the model from face to chest, showing the titular Marvel antihero with a snarling, tooth-filled mouth and the model’s face barely visible. The application took between three and four hours to complete — a video of the application can be viewed on Kannisto’s page. Her process depends on the look she’s doing. For pretty makeup, Kannisto typically works on the eyes first. For more intricate looks, she goes with a rough outline and focuses on lighter colors before darker ones. Kannisto looks at this makeup chapter

of her life as an endearing hobby. “It doesn’t feel like work to me. It feels like a relief — kind of like my down time.” However, she has been brought on to do makeup effects for others. She has been commissioned to do other work, including a great Beetlejuice and Lydia couple’s costume. Doing elaborate makeup effects on other people poses unique challenges. “With other people, the work that you’re doing is so intricate and detailed, you’ve gotta pay attention to every inhale, every movement,” Kannisto said. “If you’re working on their eyes, their eyelids will flutter. There’s a lot of other factors at play.” She’s not bothered by it, though: “More fun for me, I think,” she said Kannisto has seen an influx of people asking for her assistance, especially as Halloween approached. She also gets requests from friends for makeup for weddings and events. She’s hoping to be able to shift her talents into working in theater and film. Now that Halloween is over, she’s looking forward to new challenges. Building prosthetics is something she’d like to focus on, and she’s got several new character looks in mind. She hopes her successes inspire others to take a creative leap. “Having an artistic outlet is extremely important. You should always take the time to pursue something you want to. I hope this encourages someone to try something new.”

CofC to honor late playwright College of Charleston Theatre and Dance will honor David Lee Nelson, the late alumnus and playwright who has continued to have an impact at the College since his September 2020 death from colon cancer. Performances of Nelson’s A Sudden Spontaneous Event are set for Nov. 19-Nov. 21 at the newly renovated Sottile Theatre on King Street. Reprising the lead role of Carol will be Joy Vandervort-Cobb, the originator of the role. Nelson graduated from the program in 2000 and proved a prolific writer for stage well beyond his departure from CofC. —Sam Spence

! s g i D n i n e e As S “A Taste of Living in Charleston is a must-have to bring a bit of Charleston to any Kitchen...” —Nathalie Dupree “...So refreshing! Bobby shares generations of recipes and stories passed down to him, which I learned upon moving to Charleston are markers of classic Southern Cuisine.” —Brett McKee


Fast Unstuffed Turkey Serves 12-15 | From New Southern Cooking, 1986

Thanksgiving with

Nathalie Dupree From Staff Reports


ward-winning cookbook artist Nathalie Dupree says her top Thanksgiving tip is something that doesn’t directly involve cooking food: On the big day, make sure to put a cooler or big bin in an out-of-the-way place so you can store dirty pots, pans and utensils. By doing this, you’ll keep your kitchen relatively clean as guests buzz around in anticipation of the main event. Dupree, a Charleston foodie icon who moved to Raleigh earlier this year, has cookbooks filled with great recipes that will enliven any Thanksgiving meal.

“This is a desperation turkey. It’s for those times when you can’t cook ahead, when you somehow ruined your first turkey, or when you have only two hours to cook everything.” 1 turkey, 12-14 pounds ½ cup butter 1 medium onion, chopped 1 medium carrot, chopped 4 or 5 sprigs of fresh rosemary, or 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary 4-6 cups of chicken or turkey stock Salt Freshly ground black pepper Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Butter a piece of aluminum foil and place in the bottom of a roasting pan. Place the turkey, breast up, on the foil and rub all over with butter. Place some of the onion and some of the carrot and all of the rosemary inside the turkey. This isn’t stuffing; it’s added for flavor. (Dressing, she explains elsewhere, is baked beside a turkey and is Southern; Stuffing, baked inside the bird, is Northern.) Pour in stock to a depth of 1-2 inches up the sides of the turkey. Now turn the turkey breast side down, so the juices from the turkey and the stock will keep the breast moist. Sometimes, a turkey doesn’t want to stay put, in which case, you leave it breast side up. Roast for 1 hour. There will be a lot of steam in the oven. Carefully remove the turkey from the oven, closing the door rapidly so that very little steam is released. If the stock has boiled down to less than 1 inch, add enough to bring it up to 2 inches. Then, turn the turkey breast side up, and return it to the oven. When the oven has returned to a temperature of 500 degrees, reduce the heat to 450 degrees and roast for 1 hour more. Remove the turkey; check for doneness with a meat thermometer or by piercing to see if the juices run clear. Let sit 30 minutes before carving. (You can add remaining stock to pan juices and reduce for a rich and flavorful sauce.)

Yam Souffle

Serves 4-6 | From Nathalie Dupree’s Southern Memories, 1993 Dupree explains this is a light dish that came from one of her students. If you can’t find canned yams, you can use sweet potatoes.

TOPPING 1 cup chopped pecans ½ cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ½ cup all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons butter, melted ¼ cup flaked coconut Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Drain the yams, reserving about 1 ½ cups liquid. In a large bowl, mash the yams with 1 cup reserved liquid, adding more if needed for a smooth consistency. Add the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt; mix well, and pour into a greased casserole dish. Rūta Smith file photo

How a school trip changed Sean Hawkins’ life By Andy Brack

It’s fairly safe to say that most school field trips are endured by students, but generally don’t have life-changing impacts.

Enter Sean Hawkins, then a 16-year-old student near Houston. Being in Texas, it wasn’t out of the ordinary for his class to visit a slaughterhouse. “It had a tremendous impact,” recalled Hawkins almost 40 years later. Not only did he become a vegetarian (“It was an ethical decision”) but he gravitated toward a career of helping animals live better lives. Today, he’s chief development officer of the Charleston Animal Society, one of the Lowcountry’s largest and most visible charities. These days, Hawkins laughs at the memory of becoming a teenaged vegetarian in a home of meat-eaters. “As a kid, I didn’t like vegetables. All I ate was mac-and-cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. For the first couple of years, I drove my parents crazy.”

Digs 11.10.2021

Volunteer to pet professional


As a student, Hawkins often volunteered at a Houston-area animal shelter. “I just enjoy dogs and cats,” Hawkins said. “Being a vegetarian, I learned to respect and love other animals as well. I think that every species we share the planet with should be able to live free from harm and suffering.” In college at the University of Houston, he was hired by author and humanitarian Cleveland Amory to establish dog and cat sterilization clinics across the nation for the Fund for Animals, an affiliate of the Humane Society of the United States. By the late 2000s, he was living in Los Angeles, where he developed a still-popular television show, the Hero Dog Awards, with the American Humane Association for the Hallmark Channel. It showcased eight categories of hero dogs in a 2011 media blitz that he said generated 1 billion earned media impressions, 6 million Facebook page views and 600,000 votes from people who love dogs. About the same time, he met Erik Sandoval, a television reporter and anchor today in Orlando. They later married and see each other every two weeks.

Hawkins and his dog, a goldendoodle named Oh Be Joyful, enjoy frequent outdoor activity.

Hawkins’ career continued to surge as he became head of the humane society in Santa Barbara, California, in 2017. He set up a structured fundraising program that boosted donated revenue by 150% to $1.5 million and greatly increased adoptions at the shelter.

Being a vegetarian, I learned to respect and love other animals as well. I think that every species we share the planet with should be able to live free from harm and suffering.” —Sean Hawkins

But when his contract was about to expire, he said he started passively looking for a new challenge that would be closer geographically to his husband. Then came the chance to talk with peers in Charleston. The president and CEO, Joe Elmore, is known nationally for what he’s done at the Charleston Animal Society, Hawkins explained, but he didn’t know Elmore on a personal level. But after four months of interviews, he was offered and accepted the job to be chief development officer.

Working creatively to generate success Hawkins moved to Charleston in February 2020, just before the pandemic hit. He and his dog, Oh Be Joyful, got

an apartment in Mount Pleasant and started enjoying runs and play times around the old Pitt Street Bridge and on the beach at Sullivan’s Island. Then came what might be the toughest thing for a fundraiser — the order to stay home and not interact directly with the new people he needed to meet and know to help his organization be successful. “I have spent my first 20 months in Charleston in lockdown,” Hawkins said. “I am by nature a very social person. It was really challenging to be in a new community and not be able to go out and meet people.” But long-time sheltering in place followed by a careful return to the society’s shelter in North Charleston brought a couple of benefits. First, it allowed him and his dog to explore the riches of the area’s outdoors when they just had to get out of the house. Second, it provided the impetus for the creativity to raise money to benefit animals in new ways. For example, the organization’s successful annual in-person chili cookoff went online. It also was packaged with a new rescue brew beer contest in which residents nominated a dog or cat to be the society’s spokesdog and spokescat. The event was a hit — without lots of the upfront costs and risks of a real event — raising about $66,000 in 2020. This year’s recent second contest more than doubled the amount of donations. Hawkins said he is enjoying — finally — meeting more people throughout the Charleston area. “I feel as I am just now, 21 months later, starting to benefit from the beauty and nature that Charleston has to offer,” he said. “There is very much a sense of community,” later adding, “This community is incredibly generous. “I really like it here. It’s been a challenging couple of years for fundraising, but we’ve done OK. Nobody’s done a playbook on fundraising during a pandemic!”

Poinsettias are plants, not holiday trash By Toni Reale, special to Digs In the next few weeks, garden centers and grocery stores will be filled with America’s favorite holiday plant, the poinsettia. Its timely crimson leaves are a hallmark of the season and embellish everything from clothing to U.S. Postal Service stamps. These plants are thoughtfully gifted to friends and loved ones around the holidays but often Reale treated as disposable, like most seasonal decor. However, with a little care, these plants can easily and successfully be enjoyed all year round.

In the late 1820s, a Charleston native and U.S. ambassador, Joel Roberts Poinsett, traveled to Mexico on a diplomatic mission. Legend is that Poinsett came across the (now-called) poinsettia plant, likely in winter at a local market. Fascinated with horticulture, Poinsett sent clippings, seeds, and roots back to his greenhouses in Poinsett South Carolina and to a well-known botanist friend in Philadelphia who was successful at cultivating the plant. In 1829, this exotic plant made its debut at the first public show of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. The plant’s popularity skyrocketed. It now is the most sold potted plant in the U.S. and Canada. In

2019, sales of poinsettias contributed over $170 million to the U.S. economy. It’s a huge economic driver for the six-week period leading up to Christmas.

Care for the long-run

The poinsettia, euphorbia pulcherrima, is native to tropical dry forests from Mexico to Guatemala. These forests are warm yearround and endure long spells without rain. Knowing a plant’s native environment is important to caring for it at home because it is up to plant parents to replicate natural conditions as much as possible for the health and longevity of the plant. LIGHT AND TEMPERATURE: Poinsettias will thrive in your home with roughly six hours of medium-bright indirect light. Don’t put them in a window where light intensity is high because the leaves can get burned and the soil dries out too quickly. Avoid drafty areas and vents as this plant prefers temperatures ranging between 55 and 70 degrees. WATERING: Stick your finger into the soil of your poinsettia. If the soil is dry up to your first knuckle, it’s time to water your plant. Bottom watering is the best way to hydrate the soil of these (and most) plants. Simply take the plant in it’s nursery pot or a pot that has a drainage hole and put it in a tray (or sink) with an inch or so of water. Let the plant’s roots soak up what it needs. You’ll know that the plant has been fully hydrated when the top of the soil is wet. Avoid overwatering by using the finger trick described above. FERTILIZING: Poinsettias can benefit from a little water-soluble fertilizer at every watering during the holiday season. This care regime can keep the crimson leaves of this plant vibrant and healthy until about March.

Leaving poinsettias in the window is fine, so long as it’s not too cold or sunny.

After the leaves fall

When the leaves begin to fall, cut back on watering and fertilizing. It is at this time that the plant is going into dormancy. Trim back the plant a bit, leaving about half of the buds. Your plant will go through a period of resembling sticks, but do not throw it out. This is part of its cycle. Water and fertilize when the soil is dry and come May you’ll start to see new growth. When the plant has many of its leaves (they’ll be green at this time) back, repot the plant in a well-drained pot that is one size up from its current size. This will encourage growth. Anytime that night temperatures are consistently above 55 degrees, you can place your plant in a shady spot in the yard

and enjoy it throughout the summer. To get the poinsettia to turn that crimson red again in time for the holidays, it will need a minimum of 14 hours of darkness each day. Place a bag over the plant at sunset and take it off the next day (14 hours later) or take it in and out the closet. By mid-November, the leaves will start turning red and you can start the care cycle over again and enjoy it for many seasons to come Toni Reale is the owner of Roadside Blooms, a flower and plant shop in Park Circle in North Charleston.

Where to find some of Charleston’s best every day


By Parker Milner

even days, seven different burgers in Charleston … go. Ask 10 Lowcountry residents to name their picks, and you’re sure to get 10 different lists, showing Charleston’s versatility in the burger department. Here at the City Paper, we’ve made it our mission to sample as many local burgers as possible — it’s a tough job, but someone had to do it. With such stiff competition in town, we thought: “What if we combed the long list of burger pop-ups, new restaurants, weekly oneoffs and old standbys and suggested one for each day of the week?” Below, you’ll find just that, with classic beef, turkey, vegan and even shrimp burgers making the City Paper’s Burger Week lineup. This week’s meal prep just got a little bit easier — now, all you have to do is venture out and see what our city has to offer between two buns.

Have a hankering for Sunday brunch? Fear not, owner Joey Ryan gives guests the option to add a fried egg to any of his four staple burgers: the Gobble Gobble, Spicy Gobble Gobble, Moo Moo and Veggie. According to Ryan, “Our signature ‘Gobble Gobble’ pairs great with an egg.” To make the Gobble Gobble turkey patty, Ryan combines ground turkey with organic vegetables before topping with white cheddar, arugula and lemon aioli. The response to this family recipe and other Gobble Gobble burgers “has been amazing” since Ryan parked the truck on Huger Street, he said. “We are getting busier and busier and are very excited about our future in Charleston.”

And messy. Like, really messy.

FRIDAY Cabin Smash Burger

Harold’s Cabin 247 Congress St. Downtown Harold’s Cabin reopened in downtown’s Westside neighborhood after an 18-month pandemic-prompted closure with a new 12-item menu that includes a revamped Cabin Burger, a longtime staple at the local favorite. It’s an unembellished take on a cheeseburger, and one that’s executed to perfection. “We did a lot of research on the burger,” said Harold’s Cabin owner John Schumacher, adding that they started with a double patty “but couldn’t dial it in.” Bun, burger, cheese, onions and pickles combine to form one cohesive bite that’s jumping with flavor. “Oftentimes, when you see a burger on a menu, the proportions are off. What I mean by that is sometimes there is too much meat or too much bread,” Schumacher said. “Besides the overall flavor, one of the critical aspects is the burger-bun-condiment ratio. All the ingredients have to be harmonious; the first bite has to be the same as the last.”

According to Schumacher, the hardest part about crafting an elite burger is choosing the trimmings. For Harold’s, he found a trifecta that just works. “After multiple tastings we zeroed in on cheddar, caramelized onions and dill pickles,” Schumacher said, adding that the burger is the restaurant’s top seller since it reopened in September. “The last two facets that helped take it over the top was [our] ‘Comeback Sauce’ and one [member] of our kitchen staff, Derek, makes an incredible onion bun. So far the customer response has been overwhelmingly positive.”

SATURDAY Backyard Burger

Ted’s Butcherblock 334 East Bay St. Downtown Ted’s is known for its gourmet greats — provisions, sandwiches, soups, charcuterie and more — but punch your ticket to “Ultimate Burger Saturday” for one of just 48 burgers that owner Ted Dombrowski grills on his Big Green Egg. The weekly tradition started in 2014, Dombrowski said. “The way we started doing it was we did tributes to known burgers around the country,” he said. Tributes to In-and-Out’s “animal style” and Matt’s Bar & Grill’s “Juicy Lucy” led to today’s Ted’s offering — a new special burger every month along with a classic “Backyard Burger,” both of which are made using patties ground the night before each Saturday service. “I think the biggest difference is because we cut meat everyday,” said Dombrowski, who combines steak trimmings with chuck and brisket, forming the mixture into seven-ounce patties. “There’s trim from cutting steaks, and that all winds up in the burger blend.” In November, Ted’s specialty burger is topped with bacon, pickled red onions and gouda cheese sauce.

April Punsalan says edible goodies can be foraged all over the Lowcountry, even along the roadsides of James and Johns islands

Walk into the produce aisle of a grocery store and you’ll find plenty of edible plants — lettuce, broccoli, oregano, kale — which in a lot of cases, aren’t locally grown. But walk outside almost anywhere in the Lowcountry, and there are plenty of uncommon — and unused — plants that are just as tasty and beneficial to our bodies, according to seasoned botanist April Punsalan. For over 25 years, Punsalan spent “thousands of hours” studying herbalism, botany and ethnobotany, learning about different plants and medicinal benefits. Using all the experience and knowledge over the two decades led her into her current venture, Yahola Herbal School, an online botany course “dedicated to teaching you how to connect with your local flora to improve your health.” “I feel like after studying plants for 25 years, the next 25 years I just need to teach,” Punsalan said about starting the school. “Because I’ve learned so much that it’s time to share it. It’s just the perfect time.” With her knowledge of plants, herbs and foraging, Punsalan views the outside world as a “natural grocery store that exists naturally beyond four walls” — a way to reconnect with Earth and what it produces.

Connection and reconnection is Punsalan’s ultimate goal with not just the idea of the natural grocery store, but also all the courses in Yahola Herbal School. “My biggest fear is that if we don’t connect with it, it’ll be gone,” Punsalan said. Constant urban and suburban development throughout the Lowcountry — check the weekly City Paper crane counts for an idea of just how much — concerns Punsalan, as the native plants in the area are being paved over, bulldozed and not being rescued for future growth. “They say you should be living for seven generations,” she added. “And my biggest goal, or biggest emphasis, is to teach people at least 25 plants, or up to 50, that you can forage and use as food and medicine, that you can connect with all the time.” According to Punsalan, many plant species found in the produce section of the grocery store come from only a handful of families. The mustard family, or brassicaceae, for example, produce broccoli, kale, spinach, cabbage, arugula and horseradish, to name a few. “We’re only eating from this small select group of families and aren’t getting the phytochemicals we need that are cancer-fighting,” she said. “We’re leaving our bodies vulnerable by only eating from these small groups.” “We have a strong dependency on the grocery store — even me!” Punsalan added.

WEST ASHLEY 817 Savannah Highway | (843) 225-GENE | GENES.BEER

In your backyard Here’s a selection of a couple of herbs and native plants native in the Charleston area that can be used in cooking, according to Punsalan. (Of course, always be cautious when consuming foraged herbs and plants.) Eastern Horsemint (monarda punctata), a knee to waist-high plant with pink and yellow flowers and grayish green leaves. If in doubt, crush a few leaves, and if it smells like oregano, you’re right on the money — Eastern horsemint is highly aromatic. It is considered by Punsalan as a “native oregano” that can be used in tomato-based dishes like spaghetti or pizza. It’s found in coastal dunes, maritime forests and roadsides on Johns and James islands from August to October. The plant is naturally antimicrobial and can help to relieve gas and headaches. Red Bay (persea borbonia) is a small tree with thick, leathery dark green and gray leaves. Red bay is also highly aromatic — crush a few leaves and if it smells warm and spicy, it’s a red bay. The plant can be used to flavor soups, stews and bean dishes. The tree is found along coastal sand dunes and maritime forests, and grows along Folly Beach’s Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve Trail year-round. But the species is declining due to development pressure on the coast, according to Punsalan, so it’s recommended to only take what’s needed. Red bay is also antimicrobial and can be used to make teas to relieve nausea, diarrhea, constipation and appetite loss. Yaupon (ilex vomitoria) is the only caffeinated plant in North America. It’s a shrub or small tree with leathery, elliptical leaves that are compacted and arranged alternately along the stem. New stems are often red, while older ones are gray to light beige in color. Small white flowers form on the shrub in the spring, while from October to November produce red holly berries. It can be found year round — best in June — in maritime forests, along beach trails in Sullivan’s Island, Folly Beach and Isle of Palms, as well as along roadsides in neighborhoods like Riverland Terrace.

A la carte


“As a forager and a botanist, it’s funny [to me], because I’ll say to myself, ‘Oh, I want to make a smoothie. I have to go to the grocery store.’ And then realizing now, I can just go outside and harvest, or forage, what I need.” “The times that I’ve done that, I’m very impressed or amazed by what’s available at all times, especially in Charleston.” A lot of the native flora in Charleston, said Punsalan, can be found in empty lots, county parks, maritime forests, roadsides and even the perimeter of your yard. Nevertheless, foraging for these plants is a “tricky situation.” “We’re not really encouraged to forage in those areas, but we can a little bit,” Punsalan said. “No one has said anything [yet].”

Stephen Washington is in new territory

High Water Festival returns in 2022 after 2-year hiatus After canceling the 2020 and 2021 High Water Festival due to the pandemic, event organizers announced Wednesday plans for a 2022 festival. The event will take place over two days April 23-24, returning to North Charleston’s Riverfront Park on the bank of the Cooper River. The fest’s Instagram announcement posts promise an exciting mix of artists to “make up for lost time.” To keep up with the latest information about the festival, follow High Water Festival’s Instagram and Facebook event page or sign up for the newsletter at —Samantha Connors

By Chelsea Grinstead Growing up listening to everything from Aerosmith to Alanis Morissette to Pharrell, Charleston native Stephen Washington would try to figure out how songs were put together, an innate curiosity that has driven him in his capacity as both musical director and keys player for local supergroup Quiana Parler and Friends over the past 13 years. Currently, Washington is working on his EP, Son of a Preacher, which will travel the edges of gospel, country and rock like Gary Clark Jr., but the ultimate feel will be soul. “It’s going to be an honest EP,” he said. “I believe in transparency. I’ve written songs in some of the most difficult moments in my life, and I was afraid to share it.” But he’s come to find that in talking about what is personal, we realize it’s universal. He’s always felt wired differently, Washington said, and he struggled with accepting his path was pointed toward music. “It took a lot of failing and bad decisions. It took a lot of frustrations, it took a lot of disappointments. I had this feeling, this instinct that this is something I wanted to do. There are so many things that have transpired in my life that have happened that made me want to feel like I should give up.” With a background in producing and playing for gospel musicians Travis Greene and K.J. Scriven and local band collective BlackNoyze that has seen collaborations with names like Snoop Dogg and Rihanna, Washington thinks that when it comes to putting out songs, it all comes down to intent — that music will achieve what the artist sets it out to do. A lasting positive outcome for the audience means producers and artists have to start with a respect for the attention that needs to be given to the impact of the song outside of material profits, he said. “Music is so powerful that anyone that wants to participate in that experience has to understand that there’s a level of accountability that comes with it.”

Local musician Stephen Washington will host a new Ohm Radio show, Steve’s House, and continue work on his debut solo EP, Son of a Preacher There’s value in simply trying to be aligned and centered, regardless of what you’re doing and what’s going on, he said, because it gives you a better perspective of what’s going on in the world. “Every individual will go through something where it will leave a wound. And sometimes, if you just leave it untouched or you’re never allowed to heal, it distorts your thinking, it distorts your perspective and you see the world in such a way. And then, we build society, family, relationships — we get married — off of unhealed wounds.” He sees hurt people hurting people as the force behind chaos and trouble, and he’s been there himself. “I’ve hurt someone because I was hurt. And healing is something I had always been an advocate about. It’s not easy, and sometimes it’s lonely. It takes you being brave enough to deal with the things you’ve been trying to not deal with for so long. Finally getting to this EP, to me, has been something that has been long overdue but was a

chance for me to dig in and deal with some of the issues that I’ve been hiding from.” And of course, because music is a natural pain relief, Washington has shows planned before 2021 is up. He will perform in Charlton Singleton’s Holiday Spectacular, Dec. 11 at Charleston Music Hall, and has plans in the making for a show at Pour House Dec. 26 with local altfunk group Psycodelics. Outside of music, Washington is stepping into another area with his new radio show, Steve’s House, at 1 p.m., Tuesdays starting Nov. 9, on Ohm Radio. It comes naturally to him to host the show, considering his work as a producer usually starts with a good talk. “Normally when I’m going into a song with an artist I talk to them first, try to get an understanding and see what it is we are trying to say. Then when it makes sense, the process is much easier to get to that emotional point where we have something. There has to be a bonding, a fellowship.”

To celebrate the release of his album, World on Fire, singer-songwriter Doug Walters will take the stage at Pour House for a solo acoustic show, threading the needle of an original setlist with well-loved covers. His newest album is a catch-all for blues, country and mountain folk music in the same vein as Tom Petty, Bob Dylan or Neil Young. He produced World on Fire, on which he also played bass, electric guitar and percussion, with contributions from Jonathan Lovett on keys, Jeff Caldwell on vocals and Alan Brisendine on sax, with engineering by Jeff Leonard. —Chelsea Grinstead

Tommy Brown to perform debut show at Forte Jazz Lounge Nov. 12

As part of season two of the PURE Concert Festival produced by Zandrina Dunning, the Nov. 12 performances are in collaboration with Brown’s own creative consulting business, WeCre8. “I’m going to tell a story,” Brown said. “I wanted to keep it themed around love — that’s something we could use a lot of right now. It’s been a crazy couple of years, a crazy couple of seasons. —CG

Country artist Johnny Dailey captures scenes of Charleston Singer-songwriter Johnny Dailey, an Alabama native who spent 10 years in Charleston before moving to Nashville in 2018, just dropped a music video for his recent single, “24,” with scenes interweaving Holy City-scapes of downtown and Folly Beach. After being on the local music grind here, Dailey realized a chance of scenery was due, and so the family moved to Nashville. He ended up signing a publishing deal with global giant Warner Chappell Music and began scoring cowrites. Now he’s beginning to release his own music, including the country ballad “24,” with a music video that doubles as an ode to his wife as well as Charleston. “I wrote that song about three years ago with Daniel Roth and Vicki Davis,” Dailey said of the sessions with Nashville songwriters. “We just got together and were talking about life. Daniel had just had a baby, and I just had a baby. A lot of life events just happened. We started talking about how if you only had a certain amount of time, who would you give it to? If we knew that tomorrow was our last day, who would be that one person that we would want to spend our time with?” It’s potentially tricky territory for a song given its unabashed sentimentality, but the song moves well thanks to the classic country wordplay around the “24 hours” concept and Dailey’s easygoing delivery. As a performer, he’s been well-seasoned by his years gigging in Charleston. “I was playing gigs around [the city] — on Folly Beach, in Mount Pleasant, downtown — trying to play any cover gig I could get,” he said. “I was mostly writing alone, just trying to come up with good ideas and hone my craft and learn how to write a song.”

Kirsten Balani

Country artist Johnny Dailey explores the concept of running out of time in his new single, “24” With the video for “24,” Dailey worked with the local Thomas Brothers production company to capture the local spirit and character he encounters when he visits with his wife, playing up the romanticism of the lyrics with sweeping footage of the city and the beach interspersed with his own home videos. “Me and my wife love Charleston, and she grew up going there on family vacation,” he said. “It’s the first little vacation we took while we were dating as well, so we’ve got a lot of good memories there.” Dailey, whose previous single, “Burns Like Whiskey,” has already earned him some buzz, hopes to follow up these records with an EP early next year. —Kyle Petersen
