n the race for economic success, the August unemployment statistics had South Carolina tied with the District of Columbia for fourth place – from the bottom. In spite of Boeing, in spite of Amazon, more than one out of every ten South Carolinians who wants a job can’t find one. As virtually everyone knows who picks up a newspaper, turns on the television or fires up the Internet, America is consumed by the debate over how to restart the economy. There are three implicit assumptions:

Rural Revival

If we could grow more food in South Carolina’s rural counties and produce more specialty products statewide for our hungry metropolitan markets, we could create jobs of all sorts. Anne S. Malarich

Like the rest of the country, South Carolina has experienced an explosion of interest in local food, but there is not enough available for consumers, restaurants and schools. So, on one side there is a huge demand made up of diverse buyers. On the other side, there are suppliers with the skill and resources to produce. It’s getting clearer what a new economy might look like. One more point about the statistics. Things are actually worse than they seem. In South Carolina, our 11.1 percent statewide unemployment figure hides far more discouraging numbers in rural counties. In Marion County, for example, PERCENTOFJOBSEEKERS ONEINFIVE HAVENOTBEENABLETO find work. If South Carolina’s economy is suffering generally, our rural economy is on life support. This, of course, brings us back to food. Food is grown on land, and rural South Carolina, if it has little else going on economically, has land in abundance. Imagine doubling the PERCENTAGEOFFOODWEEATnFROMTOPERCENTnCOMING from South Carolina farms. Then imagine if we could add VALUETHROUGHSPECIALTYPROCESSINGANDBRANDITh3OUTH #AROLINA'ROWNv 4HEREAREABOUT PEOPLELOOKINGFORJOBSIN3OUTH #AROLINA7ITHCOUNTIES THATSANAVERAGEOF 

people per county – just a few more people than the new North Charleston Boeing plant will be employing once they are fully up and running. If we could grow more food in South Carolina’s rural counties and produce more specialty products statewide for our hungry metropolitan markets, we could create jobs of all sorts. It’s not hard to imagine a few thousand in each county, especially in rural South Carolina – a Boeing, if not for every county, maybe for every two or three counties. This is where GrowFood Carolina comes in. As you will read in this issue, GrowFood will serve a critical role in connecting small farmers in the Lowcountry with consumers – providing crop planning, marketing and distribution necessary to get the most value from local produce. It will sell wholesale to grocery stores, restaurants and institutions. Unlike the Council of Economic Advisors, we don’t PRETENDTOKNOWEXACTLYHOWTHINGSWILLPLAYOUT7ERENOT expecting to create another Facebook, or another Lehman Brothers. Our goal is to provide the best support possible to ensure that South Carolina’s farmers will be able to meet a growing demand for locally grown, healthy food, and to contribute to an economic recovery that is broad, real and enduring.

n a sweltering hot August day in Charleston, some 50 or so people gathered at 990 Morrison Drive to see an old warehouse coming to life. Farmers, food

retailers, restauranteurs, neighbors, community groups and state agriculture officials toured the 10,000-square-foot facility, as workmen with Taylor Construction prepared to install a giant refrigerated cooler – its 800-square-foot outline marked off in blue chalk on the concrete floor.

The warehouse – a project of the Conservation League’s nonprofit GrowFood Carolina program – will be all about aggregating local produce for wholesale distribution, connecting local farmers to area retailers, a missing link in the growing local food movement. It is the first “local food Kate Parks

hub” to be established in South Carolina. But Sara Clow, general manager of GrowFood, cautioned the enthusiastic crowd. “We are starting small, with just a few growers and a few customers,” she said, “and we will build from there as word gets out.”

GrowFood Carolina

WHY a Local Food Hub? Currently, the majority of food travels long distances through a centralized network of a few large-scale producers, a few large-scale processors, and a few large-scale distributors. This has contributed to a precipitous decrease in small and mid-sized farms, hurting rural economies and minimizing the availability and diversity of local products for the local consumer. Transitioning from a predominately global food supply to a more regional network of small and mediumsize farms in the U.S. requires new infrastructure and new models.

WHAT

is a Local Food Hub?

There are many different models of food hubs, depending upon location and need. The current working definition by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is: A centrally located facility with a business management structure facilitating the aggregation, storage, processing, distribution, and/or marketing of locally/regionally produced food products.

“South Carolina was one of 39 states with an increase in farm numbers between 2002 and 2007, rising at least 5%.” – U.S. Department of Agriculture

Cruise Ship Standards

State Legislators Weigh In

L

ast month, Charleston City Council missed a golden opportunity to resolve the dispute over cruise ship standards. Instead of adopting an imminently reasonable and legally defensible plan as proposed by the Historic Charleston Foundation, council members approved, by an 8-3 vote, an “inconsequentialâ€? and “inadequateâ€? ÂœĂ€`ˆ˜>˜ViĂŠÂŤĂ€ÂœÂŤÂœĂƒi`ĂŠLÞÊ>ĂžÂœĂ€ĂŠÂœiĂŠ,ˆÂ?iĂž]ĂŠÂşĂœÂ…ÂˆVÂ…ĂŠÂˆĂƒĂŠ most notable for what it would not do.â€? (quotations from two Post and Courier lead editorials). By contrast, the proposed Historic Charleston Foundation ordinance would have legally limited the number of cruise ships to the maximum number that the SPA says it wants – no more than 104 per year, only one at a time, and only up to 3,500 passengers apiece. Its passage would have resulted in the removal of Charleston from the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Watch List,â€? and likely would have resulted in the termination of the lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines. In the absence of meaningful leadership from the city’s elected officials, we may have to look to our state representatives for guidance. Here’s what a few have said on the matter:

nterstate 73 was first proposed in the 1970s by Senator Robert Byrd and other West Virginia powerbrokers as a means to channel economic development into their struggling region, via a multi-billiondollar interstate highway stretching from northern Michigan to the coast of South Carolina. Remarkably, the I-73 boondoggle is still alive and kicking and threatens to usurp some $2.4 billion of transportation monies in South Carolina alone, while wreaking havoc in the small towns and farming communities of the Pee Dee. The South Carolina stretch is divided into two projects: the “northern segment,” which runs from Rockingham, N.C. across the border to I-95 in South Carolina; and the “southern segment,” which extends from I-95 near Latta to S.C. Highway 22, known as the Conway Bypass just outside of Myrtle Beach. While the states of Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina are mostly upgrading existing roads, South Carolina politicians and highway commissioners are insisting on a brand new interstate, one that is not ranked as a priority in the state’s transportation plan. South Carolina’s budget woes alone

beg the question of why we are not following the model of these wealthier states to the north; but the fact that a much cheaper, more effective alternative exists simply defies reason. Namely, a four-lane route already runs between I-95 and Myrtle Beach: S.C. Hwy. 38/U.S. Hwy. 501. For a cost of approximately $150 million, this existing road corridor could be upgraded to an expressway, connecting tourists from I-95 to the Conway Bypass (S.C. 22) – versus the $1.2 billion required for the I-73’s southern segment alone. Inexplicably, DOT commissioners are plunging ahead and voted (without advance public notice) to approve borrowing $105 million – in “good faith” – to build an interchange for I-73, without the faintest idea of when or from where the funds will come to build the rest of the road. While the problems with the proposed interstate have been crystal clear for years (the Conservation League has opposed I-73 for more than a decade), South Carolina’s political leaders – with a few notable exceptions – have blindly pledged their allegiance to this wasteful project. Alaska has nothing on South Carolina’s “interchange to nowhere.”

A Worthy "Agenda" DOT Commission Chairman Danny Isaac has accused Commissioner Sarah Nuckles of having “an underlying agenda,� in response to her efforts to make DOT more transparent and accountable in its deliberations. In the Q & A below, Commissioner Nuckles explains her “agenda.�

Q: DOT has been in the news recently regarding budget shortfalls and closed door dealings. What has gone wrong? A: South Carolina has the fourth largest highway system in the nation, yet instead of adequately maintaining and preserving what we have, the DOT Commission is diverting monies away from road resurfacing and bridge repair in favor of building or widening new roads that are not critical needs, or are not ranking priorities, and for which we have no funding. &URTHERMORE THEWAYTHATTHE DOT reform legislation was written WHICHLEFTSOMELOOPHOLES COUPLED WITHTHE3TATE)NFRASTRUCTURE"ANKWHICH does not require ranking prioritization),

means that priority rankings can be manipulated, or not used at all, for transportation projects that may have little to do with need and merit, and everything to do with politics and the biggest match. As to the recent DOT cash flow problems, that is the result of a lack of internal controls and procedures, and nothing else. Q: Chairman Isaac (who resides in Myrtle Beach and represents the 1st District), along with a few Horry County and Pee Dee politicians, have compared I-73 to I-85 in the Upstate. A: There is no comparison between ) AND) ) LINKSTHEECONOMIC centers of Montgomery, Atlanta, 'REENVILLE 3PARTANBURGAND#HARLOTTE – major metropolitan areas in one of the Southeast’s most important manufacturing and industrial corridors.

C OA S TA L C O N S E RVAT I O N L E AG U E

Q. Can you describe for us your philosophy and “agenda� as a DOT Commissioner? A: I take a conservative approach. Most importantly, South Carolina’s transportation needs must be met in a fair and equitable manner for everyone, based on a quantifiable and objective basis that applies to the state as a whole and as the law requires.

Planned Giving Leaving a Family

Legacy by Catherine McCullough, Senior Development Officer Like many of you, I find one of the most compelling arguments for being a conservationist is my hope that my current actions will help protect the Lowcountry landscapes, waterways and communities that I love for my children. I grew up jumping over waves in the surf on the Isle of Palms, counting dolphins and pelicans from the bridge at Shem Creek, marveling at the gardens of Magnolia Plantation and, of course, eating a lot of fried shrimp and Johns Island tomato sandwiches. These simple, but extraordinary experiences are an integral part of why my husband and I have chosen to RAISEOURFAMILYHEREIN#HARLESTON7ELOVETOSHARETHE Lowcountry with our children and we are passionately attached to the idea that they will be able to share it WITHTHEIRS7ETRUSTTHATBYSUPPORTINGTHEWORKOFTHE Coastal Conservation League that we will leave a gift to our children that is immeasurable.

In recent years, planned gifts have been recognized widely as a powerful tool for those of us who want to support nonprofit organizations, but also need to be concerned about current financial obligations. And yet, many young families are still reluctant to make a bequest, as they feel they need to leave these assets to their children.

Alarmed by the closure of several miles of the river’s prized oyster beds last year, town officials set to work on a May River Action Plan to save the May, a river that has been synonymous with life in Bluffton for centuries. The Action Plan’s technical and implementation committees took note of a much anticipated case study completed last August by Dr. Fred Holland, retired director of the NOAA Hollings Marine Laboratory and an authority on tidal creek estuarine systems. Dr. Holland was able to scientifically demonstrate that if development is shifted away from the more highly sensitive areas of the May River watershed to less vulnerable locations, the community could significantly diminish stormwater runoff volume and fecal coliform loadings – major culprits in the river’s steady demise.
