TODAY'S FOCUS
'Divas,' premieres and partnerships mark CBT season
By KYLE W. BARNETTE
Administrative director, Charleston Ballet Theatre
Special to CharlestonCurrents.com

SEPT. 10, 2009 -- When our resident choreographer, Jill Eathorne Bahr, decided upon her lineup for the 2009-2010 Charleston Ballet Theatre season, she was hoping her decision to add three new works would generate interest and create a certain amount of buzz. And when the premieres of "Motown Mania," a celebration of the influential music of the Detroit-based scene, and "Zorro" arrive in early 2010, those shows will have a lot to live up to in that respect because they will be following a highly-buzzed-about and glamorous season opener, "Decadent Divas."


Barnette

"Decadent Divas" is a tribute to some of the greatest female entertainers of the past century, from Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand to Whitney Houston and Madonna. It's a labor of love from Bahr honoring influential, strong-willed women who have blazed a trail not only in the music industry, but in the fields of fashion and dance as well.

In planning her play list to represent the 12 divas featured in the dance production, Bahr was both methodical and totally random in her selections, often citing the opinions of friends, family, staff and even passers-by on the street and those surrounding her in a local restaurant or two. Her journey of whittling down her selections became a show of its own, as Bahr recalls. " 'Decadent Divas' became the newest craze topic of discussion around the town," she says. "Countless coffee table discussions, luncheon gossip sessions, cocktail hour opinions ... I listened, I debated, I polled, I lobbied to everyone. I even ignored everyone, drew straws, and then I just closed my eyes, took a deep breath and picked."

Think of the word "diva" and many things come to mind: a strong-minded woman, a difficult and demanding person, or someone with loads of talent and the ability to maintain a certain "air" about her. But when discussing the word and its true meaning, one Web site (http://www.divasthesite.com) has criteria that are simple and best fit the CBT definition of the word: one with "extraordinary glamour, mystery, a liberal sprinkling of tragedy and most of all endurance throughout the years."

Glamour and fashion became a resounding theme with CBT's upcoming production and the significant influence many of these women have had on the world of style and fashion. Charleston Ballet Theatre was lucky enough to find a kindred spirit in the guise of locally and nationally celebrated couture designer Mary Porter.

Porter, a Charleston Fashion Week rising star long recognized for her elegant and glamorous couture gowns, was quick to offer her services. At first she was generous enough to simply allow CBT to use some of her already built designs to represent some of the divas, but her passion for the project eventually led her to commit to designing and building all of the women's costumes for the entire production. On opening and closing nights of the show, Porter will even be hosting a mini-runway show to coincide with the theme of the evening's main event.

Collaboration has become a hallmark this year with Charleston Ballet Theatre, with pairings of the ballet's shows with opening-night events and other specials meant to offer CBT patrons a full experience. Neighboring Fish Restaurant will be hosting a post-show "Diva Rendezvous" following all four evening performances of "Decadent Divas" on Friday and Saturday nights. Attendees of the show will be invited to cross the street for a complimentary array of fine cheeses and will receive diva-themed cocktail specials while mingling with the show's dancers and grooving to the sounds of a live DJ.

As for the rest of the 2009-10 season, Charleston Ballet Theatre will premiere several new shows, including the aforementioned "Motown Mania" and "Zorro," which will be performed in the Memminger Auditorium complete with audience interaction, costume events, and music choreographed to the sounds of the Gypsy Kings among other notable Latin music artists. "Rocky Horror," an annual favorite, will be back for a two-week run in late October, and "The Nutcracker" will expand to performances at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in addition to its annual holiday run at Gaillard Auditorium.

Mystery solved and another Chamber of Commerce moment

By ANDY BRACK, publisher
CharlestonCurrents.com

SEPT. 10, 2009 -- We were surprised when no one supplied an answer, guessed or made up something out of whole cloth about the Ashley cream sign pictured in our Aug. 31 edition.


Brack

So we started snooping around. After asking a few people whether they knew what the old advertisement referred to on the side of a store at the corner of Spring and Coming streets, we decided to call our friend Nic Butler, archivist at the Charleston County Public Library.

He admitted that he had been curious when he saw the photo, but figured he wouldn't enter the contest as he had an unfair advantage over other readers -- all of the resources of the library.

It turns out the old sign- - obviously left in its original state over the years to preserve its faded charm -- is an advertisement for Ashley Ice Cream.

"The Ashley Ice Cream Company appears in the Charleston city directories of 1922 through 1945," Butler said. "Their offices and 'factory' were at 572-74 Meeting Street, but I imagine they were supplying corner grocery stores around town.

"They weren't the only ice cream business in town, though, so the painted sign at the corner of Coming and Spring Street was undoubtedly a form of advertising."

Former U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings, who was born the year Ashley Ice Cream got started, remembered the treat well, noting it was delicious and had several tasty flavors.

"Everybody ate Ashley Ice Cream," he recalled. "Very popular; it was the most popular of all."

Between the end of World War II and 1948, something apparently happened to the brand as another ice cream company - Swift's - is listed as occupying the address that Ashley had for more than two decades.

Mystery solved!

In this space, we were planning to ask all of those people lathered up about President Obama's Tuesday's speech to the nation's students how they felt now that it had nothing to do with socialism, foisting liberalism on impressionable minds or other blather spewed by right-wing nuts on radio and television.


Congressman
Manners

But then came along GOP Congressman Joe Wilson of Lexington who apparently couldn't control himself Wednesday night during a joint session of Congress. Wilson, if you haven't heard by now, shouted "You lie" at Obama during a major address on the need for health care reform.

Good one, Joe. Not that South Carolina didn't already have egg on its face and look like a banana state thanks to its philandering governor. Not that we didn't already have an image problem.

At least Wilson had the decency to apologize. The only winner in the whole dumb mess was Democrat Rob Miller, who apparently raised more than $100,000 online after Wilson's inappropriate remark.

Now, for those of you who didn't listen to Obama's education speech, here's a snipped that sounds … almost Republican … in its call for students to be responsible:

"But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life -- what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you've got going on at home -- none of that is an excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude in school. That's no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. There is no excuse for not trying.

"Where you are right now doesn't have to determine where you'll end up. No one's written your destiny for you, because here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future." Read or watch full speech.

GOOD NEWS
Mt. Pleasant Farmers Market adds a month to its season

Patrons of the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market will have an extra month to enjoy fresh local produce and the market experience this year. The market, which was originally scheduled to end its season on Oct. 20, has been extended until Nov. 24, town officials say.

"It was at the request of our vendors, since we were delayed opening this season due to Moultrie Middle construction," Ashley McKenzie, the town's community development and tourism officer, tells Charleston Currents in an e-mail. "The market times have changed to 4 p.m. to dark. There are lights under the pavilions, so we are encouraging customers to come past dusk!"

The town will again hold a special Holiday Farmers Market and Craft Show in December. It's planned for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 12.

County leaders to salute good business news from 2008

Charleston County Council will hold its sixth annual Industry Appreciation Week Breakfast next week with the theme "Challenging Times: Innovation Required." More than 100 local business executives, elected officials and economic development allies have been invited to help the county salute the companies that drive the area's economy.

In conjunction with the event, the county released some good economic news from the past year. During 2008, businesses within Charleston County invested $128 million and created 737 new jobs, according to the S.C. Department of Commerce. Also in 2008, Charleston County businesses ranked seventh among the state's 46 counties for new-job creation and ninth for investment. County officials also noted that companies such as Delfin USA, 2 AM Group, Inc., Cummins, Arcadia Publishing, Charles River Labs and BAE Systems all relocated or expanded facilities here, and that, over the past 16 years, county-based businesses have created nearly 17,500 new jobs and invested nearly $3 billion in Charleston County.

During the breakfast program, recognition will be given to several Charleston County-based companies that have gotten awards or accolades during the past year. The county will also present the 2009 S.C. Ambassadors for Economic Development Award to Sergio Fedelini, vice president of Mediterranean Shipping Co., in recognition of his contributions to the business climate in Charleston and the state.

Economic Development Director J. Steven Dykes will offer an update of 2008 and 2009 economic activity, and Dr. Frank Hefner, director of economic analysis at the College of Charleston, will deliver a keynote address titled "Economic Outlook: It's Still Hurricane Season," with insights into the effects of continuing economic uncertainty even amid the improvements that some economic sectors are seeing.

County offering 40-pound bags of compost for $2

Charleston County's Environmental Management Department is now selling 40-pound bags of compost for $2 per bag. The compost is made from residential yard waste that is picked up at the curb by the various municipal trash hauling companies. Residents can purchase the compost at the Bees Ferry Landfill Compost Facility, 1344 Bees Ferry Road, west of the Ashley, and at the Charleston County Recycling Center at 13 Romney St. downtown.


You can buy a 40-pound bag of compost for just $2 at the Bees Ferry Landfill Compost Facility and at the Charleston County Recycling Center. (Charleston County Photo by Robert Ballard)

The landfill will be selling the compost from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturdays. Customers should first go to the scale house (the small white building at the front of the landfill) and get a receipt to be presented at the compost facility where purchasers can pick up their bags of compost. To get to the compost facility, turn right as you drive in and go all the way to the end; follow the road around to the left, and the compost area is on the right.

At the Recycling Center on Romney Street, compost will be available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. Citizens should pay first at the front office, then drive to the pile of compost bags at the shed to load bags into a vehicle. The shed is at the front of the Recycling Center to the right, in between the electronic and cardboard containers.

For questions, call Bees Ferry at 571-0929, the Recycling Center at 720-7111 or go online to http://recycle.charlestoncounty.org.

Free peripheral arterial disease screenings to be offered

Trident Health System will offer free screenings for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) screenings at Trident Medical Center's Ambulatory Care Center from 8 a.m. until noon Sept. 12. "A simple screening exam called an ABI - ankle-brachial index - can accurately detect PAD in most cases," says Dr. Joseph Mullaney, an interventional radiologist for Trident Health System. "This test takes only a few minutes and is completely painless. We call it 'noninvasive testing' because it requires no injections or other invasive procedures."

PAD affects 8 million Americans and is the most common form of peripheral vascular disease. If left untreated, it can lead to complications of the toes, feet and legs. To register for the screening, call Consult-A-Nurse at 797-FIND (3463) or, for more information, go to http://www.TridentHealthSystem.com. A lipid and glucose profile will also be available by appointment for a fee of $20.

REVIEW
Conroy's 'South of Broad' is a letdown

What a disappointment! Another dysfunctional family drama! Grammatical errors and -- heavens to Betsy -- a drink made with cocktail onions is called a "martini." Bin Yuh's know it is called a "gibson."

-- Jean Townsend, Johns Island, SC

HISTORY SPOTLIGHT
South Carolina Society

The South Carolina Society is a social and benevolent organization established in Charleston in 1737. Its membership has included gentlemen of the highest rank in the history of both the city and the state.

The society was founded by Huguenots, mostly artisans and small merchants, who gathered weekly at a local tavern and collected funds for the relief of their distressed countrymen. From this practice they earned the title "Two Bit Club," but the present name was adopted in 1737 along with its first set of rules. Within a few years the French character of the society was diluted by the admission of English, Scots-Irish, and Scots members. The society's stock steadily increased through the collection of fees, interest on loans, rents on leased property, and donations. It was incorporated in 1751.

In the mid-1740s the society began funding the primary education of orphans among its ranks, and by the 1760s it employed its own schoolmaster for this purpose. In 1804 the organization built its own hall on Meeting Street, which was designed for use as both a school and a social hall. After the state established free primary education in 1811, the society closed its classroom, but it opened male and female secondary schools in 1827. The society's principal era of activity came to an end around 1840, when the advent of public secondary education rendered these academies unnecessary. Despite its withdrawal from educational endeavors, the organization continued to extend monetary assistance to the families of members in need.

During the Civil War the society's hall was severely damaged, its records burned, and much of its invested funds lost. Reorganization and repairs were gradual, hampered by economic difficulties and natural disasters. During the early twentieth century the society scaled back its membership, and public programs gradually superceded its tradition of extending charitable assistance. The South Carolina Society is now primarily a social organization. Due to the great demand for inclusion, only descendants of early members are admitted.
