TODAY'S FOCUS
Chamber launches support campaign for cruise terminal plan

By ROBERT W. PEARCE JR.
Chair, Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce

AUG. 30, 2010 - The South Carolina State Ports Authority has spent a great deal of time and energy over the past year engaging the residents of the Charleston region in discussions about the redevelopment of the current Union Pier cruise terminal located at the busy end of Market Street downtown.


Pearce

After hosting numerous meetings with the public and with affected separate groups, the SPA has proposed a plan which would move the cruise ships calling on Charleston away from this very busy Union Pier area and free up that area for redevelopment for the benefit of the general public.

In addition, the new cruise terminal to be developed further north of Union Pier would be a one-berth terminal. Yes, that is correct: Only one cruise ship at a time could call on Charleston. That sounds like the best of all scenarios, with a move north to free up additional space for the public to enjoy and with a one-ship structural capacity limit.

Despite the hard work of the SPA in listening and responding to comments and suggestions about this plan, there have recently been a few negative statements in a couple of letters to the newspapers. Here is a response to those letters.

The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce has launched a campaign to educate the community about the cruise ship industry and to encourage support for the redevelopment of the Union Pier cruise ship terminal as proposed by the SPA because it is a good plan which balances all citizens' desire for more and better job opportunities with a plan which reduces car, train and ship congestion in our fair city.

The Chamber believes it is important to speak up and support the SPA in its efforts to build a new passenger terminal to support the cruise business, allowing the non-maritime redevelopment of the Union Pier property, because of the broad economic contribution of both the Port and the cruise industry to Charleston. The cruise ship industry has been serving Charleston since 1973 and today has an estimated $37 million annual economic impact on the Charleston region and employs over 400 people locally.

A recent survey found that 33 percent of cruise visitor are coming to Charleston for one to two nights ahead of embarkation and staying in area hotels, dining out and visiting attractions. More importantly, an estimated 40 percent of visitors are coming to Charleston for the first time. Once a visitor experiences Charleston, they are highly likely to visit again according to the survey, increasing their spending and economic impact in the area. In fact, 87 percent of those surveyed said they absolutely would be returning to Charleston to visit again.

According to the SPA, there are 94 cruise ship visits expected in 2011. Contrast that with the over 200 visits per year by the very large car-carrier ships which will no longer tie up in this area of the port but will be moved north, away from residential neighborhoods, to the Columbus Street terminal.

As mentioned, the Union Pier plan proposed by the SPA will open up significant downtown acreage to redevelopment and provide waterfront access for both residents and visitors. The proposed redevelopment also greatly enhances traffic management for cruise passengers - an issue the Chamber knows concerns both downtown residents and businesses. All of the car, van and truck traffic carrying passengers, luggage and supplies for the cruises will be moved north, thankfully into a less-congested area. In addition, the move of the car carriers to Columbus Street terminal as part of this plan will remove a further estimated 1,800 cars weekly from the area.

Another benefit of the SPA's plan is that, with the move of the car carriers, there will no longer be any car-cargo rail activity south of Charlotte Street any longer, eliminating the multiple train switches that block traffic and cause congestion in the area, often more than once daily.

The Port -- whether cargo business or cruise oriented -- is a major economic driver of our economy and has been such since our wonderful city's founding in 1670 as a port city in the New World. We need to do all we can to support this vital economic engine while at the same time being mindful of protecting our incredible quality of life here. The SPA plan for the new cruise terminal and related relocations does that. A new one-berth cruise terminal moved north from the current congested Market Street location along with the move further north of the car-cargo port business is an excellent plan which balances the interests, and in fact enhances the interests, of all concerned.

It is critical that we, as community and business leaders, support the Port as it brings much-needed jobs and money to our economy, while also effectively managing the responsibilities that come with it. The Chamber is committed to supporting our Port, our region, our lifestyle, and our businesses.

Gulf photos make impact over three months
By ANDY BRACK, publisher | permalink

AUG. 30, 2010 -- Today marks the 100th photograph posted to our BetterGulf.org photo blog that tells stories in pictures about what's happening along the Gulf of Mexico following the big April Deepwater Horizon well disaster.


Brack

Since the beginning of June, the site has offered a new photo every single day. Viewers can see images of oiled and dead birds, fish kills, brown marshes and goo on beaches. There have been breathtaking aerial shots of a sea covered in an oily sheen, marshes colored brown by oil and thick black smoke from oil burn-offs.

But there have been more optimistic photos too -- shots of workers working in burning sun on white sandy beaches to clear tarballs and goop. You've been able to see Coast Guard images of people cleaning oiled birds, eventually setting them free. Thousands gathered in hundreds of places to celebrate Hands Across the Sand to raise awareness of dangers inherent in drilling oil. The Sierra Club placed 10,000 small American flags on the National Mall in Washington to send its message.

Through the months, I've been struck by the generosity of photographers along the Gulf coast who share their work. Among the most notable:

  • Drew Wheelan, American Birding Association. For weeks since the spill, Wheelan has been documenting the impact of the spill on wildlife, particularly migratory birds that roost along the Louisiana coast. He's offered touching pictures of oiled birds, fish kills, dismantled boom that wasn't doing its job and dead wildlife. Through the months, the spill has had physical, as well as emotional, impact on Wheelan, who had to leave the area for several days after getting sick from noxious fumes.

  • Photojournalist Zoriah. The war photographer went to the Gulf on his own dime to uncover the untold story of the spill. He's rewarded viewers with an image of a toe tag being put on a dead bird, another of a carcass collection sign and another of a bird being cleaned. In coming days, he expects to put a photo essay on his blog.

  • Terri Garland. The Southern photographer highlighted the impact of the storm on people with portraits taken against a black background. Adjacent to the photo, she offered the impact written in their own words.

  • TedX Oilspill Expedition. Three photographers, including Pinar Ozger and Kris Krug, swept into the Gulf in July and took amazing photos of oil burning in the Gulf, the sheen that dotted the sea and other photos that showed the impact.

  • Richard Shephard. The Massachusetts photographer used an ultralight plane in June to take gripping photos of oil pools along the Louisiana coast and more.

  • Jane Fulton Alt. This conceptual artist from the Chicago area covered models in a nontoxic but oily-looking substance and had them stand in Lake Michigan to demonstrate how everyone had a responsibility in the spill because of the nation's addiction to oil.

  • U.S. Coast Guard. Day in and day out, photographers with the U.S. Coast Guard have documented the agency's efforts to help clean up the spill and coordinate help.

TEACHER UPDATE: Last week's commentary urging readers to thank teachers garnered a lot of comment at our sister newsletter, StatehouseReport.com. And thanks to publication of it in The (Jesup, Ga.) Press-Sentinel, we made contact with three former classmates who helped identify members of the class. Of the 26 people in the photo, we know who 23 are -- and probably will be able to find them for a possible book project. Only three more to identify. Neat.

Former student's letter meant a lot to her

To Charleston Currents:

Thank you for your commentary this week. I, too, wrote my favorite teacher about 20 years after I had his class. I still have the letters we exchanged.

I'm also a former teacher (now administrator) and I received a phone call last spring from a student I taught 30 years ago. I hadn't seen or heard from her during that time. What a surprise! I can't begin to describe how much it meant to me.

-- Dr. Janice H. Poda, Deputy State Superintendent of Education for Administration, Columbia, S.C.

Scout's project lights up Lowcountry Children's Center

Boy Scout Jack Schaaf and a group of about 30 volunteers slipped on their safety glasses Saturday to complete the third phase of an energy efficiency upgrade for the Dee Norton Lowcountry Children's Center.

The 16-year-old Academic Magnet High School student's Eagle Scout project involves retrofitting the Upper King Street center's lighting system for energy efficiency. In addition to upgrading the ceiling lights, all desk and table lamps, exit lights and specialty lights were replaced.

Advanced programmable thermostats are part of the project to control the large heating and air conditioning systems more efficiently after hours and on the weekends when the facility is not in use saving on costly utility bills.

The project is expected to save the Lowcountry Children's Center $100,000 over a 10-year period. As with many nonprofit organizations, such savings are a huge budget boost, Center Director M. Elizabeth Ralston said Saturday. "We don't have a lot of money" in the annual budget.

In addition, the project will show a substantial reduction in greenhouse gasses, one of the city of Charleston's goals for all city buildings.

"I am so proud of this ambitious young man who volunteered his time and effort to upgrade one of our city buildings," Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. said. "His project will benefit the children of the Lowcountry as well as the environment for years to come."

Local chef launches 'underground' supper club, L.I.M.E.

L.I.M.E. (Local. Impromptu. Moveable. Evening.) is Charleston's newest underground experience created by local chef Renata Dos Santos. L.I.M.E. seeks to provide guests a fun and memorable top-secret dining experience where they can enjoy a stellar meal while making new connections over food. The first installment of L.I.M.E. will take place at 5 p.m. Sept. 18.


Dos Santos

Dos Santos will serve as the chef for this initial event, and there will be a guest mixologist. The L.I.M.E. location will only be revealed two days before the event via email to confirmed guests.

L.I.M.E. will incorporate the traditions of local and sustainable dining, and adhere to the Slow Food mission of reconnecting locals with the people, traditions, plants, animals, and waters that produce our food.

The name for this new club is derived from the term "lime," which is Trinidadian slang for a group of friends hanging out together. A "lime" can be large or small, pre-arranged or impromptu, and always involves food and beverages. Dos Santos is from Trinidad and to her, "liming" is an outlook on life that values good times with good friends.

Tickets to the September L.I.M.E. are $125, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Simply Divine Garden, a local non-profit that plants personalized organic gardens at the homes of people undergoing treatment for cancer. Tickets can be purchased online.

Trident doctor uses device to combat sudden cardiac death

A Trident Medical Center physician is the first in the Lowcountry to use an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, a new and smaller medical device implanted in the body to help regulate the heart's rhythm.


An implantable cardioverter defibrillator

ICDs monitor the heart's rhythm for very fast and potentially dangerous rhythm disorders and then deliver therapy when they detect abnormal heart rhythms. The ICD features advanced battery technology and circuitry that allows for the smallest device footprint in the industry and rapid charge times.

"In some patients, conventional ICDs don't provide enough energy to reliably defibrillate patients who are experiencing cardiac arrest," Dr. Harold Stites, cardiac electrophysiologist with Arrhythmia Specialists of Charleston, said. "In these instances, we have had to implant additional shocking coils or patches."

The Fortify ICD's narrow shape allows surgeons to implant the device using a smaller incision. It can improve patient comfort by reducing the bulk of wires in the patient's chest.

About 325,000 people per year in the U.S. are struck with sudden cardiac death.

'Marvel at what survives …'

The Aiken-Rhett House, located in a block-long lot at 48 Elizabeth St., is one of the most historically significant properties in Charleston.

The house and its outbuildings are one of the most complete and best preserved urban domestic complexes of the antebellum era. John Robinson, a wealthy merchant, began construction of the house in the suburb of Wraggborough around 1818.

By the early 1830s, the house and lot had become the property of William Aiken, Jr., a congressman, governor, and one of the wealthiest planters in South Carolina. Aiken dramatically altered the property, moving the entrance from Judith Street to Elizabeth Street, adding an eastern wing, enlarging the kitchen and slave quarters, and building a chicken coop, cowshed, and privies. In the 1850s he renovated these structures and added a northwest wing to house his art collection. With the exception of the cowshed, all of these additions and outbuildings have not only survived but also have remained largely unaltered since the 1850s.

Following the death of Aiken and his wife, the property was inherited by his daughter and her family, the Rhetts. In 1975 descendants transferred the site to the Charleston Museum, which operated it as a museum and planned to restore the house to its antebellum splendor. Twenty years later, however, the museum sold the site to Historic Charleston Foundation for $600,000. The building's unrestored and unaltered condition
attracted HCF, which saw in it a unique opportunity to understand and present antebellum urban life and the African American heritage of Charleston to the public. The foundation has no plans to restore or furnish the Aiken-Rhett House complex and instead invites visitors to "marvel at what survives from the nineteenth century rather than search for what is missing."

Run over to these five runs


Shore

Greg Shore is a local running coach certified by USA Track and Field and the Road Runners Club of America. He serves on the board of the Charleston Running Club and is the Director of Training for the Charleston Marathon. Coach Greg writes about running at CharlestonRuns.com.We asked for his five favorite local races.

  • Hell Hole Swamp Gator Run and Walk - I love small towns in South Carolina and every one of them seems to have a festival of some sort. Jamestown, at the intersection of Highways 41 and 17A, has the Swamp Fox Festival, named for Revolutionary War general Francis Marion. As early as 4:30 a.m., people begin lining the race route. Not because they're road race fans - they're there for the parade that starts after the race. The race starts with one of the local men firing his shotgun and the 10K run goes through the national forest. Race Director Michael Lake gives out the awards afterward, but not before he reads the poem he writes while the race is being run. The awards are creative - stuffed gator heads mounted on cypress. (The gator heads are harvested from an alligator farm in Florida.) Local runners head to Jamestown just to attempt to win the coveted trophies.

  • Cooper River Bridge Run - Come hang out on the first Saturday in April with 40,000 of your closest friends. It's fun to run and walk on the 'Cuz'way the other 364 days of the year, but this is a great party at America's seventh-largest race. My personal hint for a stress-free experience for locals: Pick up your race packet in the weeks before the race at Bridge Run HQ in Mount Pleasant so you avoid the race expo downtown. After the race hint: Be a member of the Charleston Running Club (you can join at the race) so you can get a free, fresh cooked post-race breakfast. No need to shove your way through the crowd to get to pawed-over bagels and oranges.

  • Carolina Children's Charity Run/Walk - There's only one race through Hanahan each year and this 8K is it. The volunteers are top-notch - I think because they're passionate about the Children's Charity. The age group prizes run three deep and with a small field, many who have never won anything in a race have a chance to walk away with some race day booty.

  • Turkey Day Run and Gobble Wobble - This 5K runs through downtown Charleston on Thanksgiving morning. It is the third-largest race in the area, with over 4,000 finishers. It's a great way to burn off just a few calories before you head inside to consume an obscene amount of food. I would say it's the friendliest race for families and dogs. They even have a separate finish chute for strollers so folks don't get tangled up at the finish line.

  • Bulldog Breakaway Series - This is a new series of five 5K races held every other Tuesday evening during the summer on the Citadel campus and through Hampton Park. The field is small and very friendly and the race management, handled by Citadel coaches Jody Huddleston and Kris Kut, is outstanding. It's fun to head out there and see how you improve from week to week.

Links to all of these races and other local races can be found on the Charleston Running Club Web site.
