Bekker, White Rabbit kick off Charleston Ballet Theatre season

By KYLE BARNETTE
Charleston Ballet Theatre
Special to CharlestonCurrents.com

OCT. 11, 2010 - Starting the season a bit later than usual this year has allowed the creative minds at Charleston Ballet Theatre to come up with an unusual pairing for the unprecedented feat of opening two major MainStage productions just two days apart.


Barnette

We kick off our 24th season this week at The Sottile Theatre at College of Charleston with the live music extravaganza Ballet Unplugged Live! That will be followed two days later by the premiere of a new full-length adaptation of the classic Alice in Wonderland.

Charleston Symphony Orchestra Concert Master Yuriy Bekker will direct an all-star lineup of chamber musicians, including famed pianist Andrew Armstrong and violinist Alan Molina.


A member of the Charleston Ballet Theatre goes unplugged in honor of the company's late benefactor, Jon Burgin.

They will accompany the CBT dance company live for four powerful and personal ballet masterworks including a new piece from Resident Choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr entitled Seasons of the Sun. The piece is a tribute in memory of longtime friend and Charleston Ballet Theatre benefactor Jon Burgin, with the other three selections representing Mr. Burgin's personal favorites over the company's 24-year history.

The one-night event celebrates the excitement of artistic collaboration and the immediate emotional impact of live music and dance. Audience members will be invited on stage after the performance for a toast in honor of the man of the evening, Mr. Jon Burgin.

Following the Thursday event two days later is the premiere of Jill Eathorne Bahr's latest full-length ballet, Alice in Wonderland, featuring fantastical new costumes by Joffrey Ballet costume designer Travis Halsey. Inspired by the surrealism of Cirque de Soliel, Bahr and Halsey spent many weeks corresponding via Facebook on the designs for The White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat and The Caterpillar along with an entire deck of cards portrayed by students of the CBT Dance School.

IN THE LIMELIGHT

Ballet Unplugged Live! -- Oct. 14, 7:30 p.m., The Sottile Theatre

Alice in Wonderland -- Oct. 16 & 17, 3 p.m., The Sottile Theatre

Tickets: $20 -- $45 (child/students $10 off)

Box Office: 723-7334 or online here

Mad Hatter Tea Party: $20 per child (parents free)

Stunning colorful backdrops, a giant Mad Hatter tea party and music by French composer Francoise Poulenc add to the madness that will take over The Sottile Theatre Oct. 16 and 17. A Mad Hatter Tea Party will be held on stage following the Saturday show where kids can interact with the cast, explore Wonderland, play games, enjoy goodies and much more.

A big season is ahead for us at CBT and we are thrilled to kick it off with such a busy and varied week of dance entertainment. There is so much more ahead for us this season, including Rocky Horror and The Nutcracker, two very different holiday classics that have become time-honored traditions for the city of Charleston. We can certainly assure that we have something for just about anyone at CBT this year.

Kyle Barnette is administrative director of Charleston Ballet Theatre.

Highway officials fail on Interstate traffic snarl
By ANDY BRACK, publisher

OCT. 11, 2010 -- Maybe it’s not only the political system that needs to try something a little new. Maybe state highway officials need an injection of common sense following a Thursday accident that blocked traffic on Interstate 26 for hours.


Brack

Are the South Carolina Highway Patrol and state transportation officials so incompetent that they can’t efficiently reroute traffic from an interstate to parallel roads around an accident?

The answer, it appears, is “Yes, they are that challenged.”

Keep in mind that these are the folks who supposedly will be in charge in the event of a hurricane evacuation.

Motorists sat for hours on Interstate 26 on Thursday evening following a 9 a.m. wreck involving three tractor-trailers, a car and a minivan. One person died and four were hurt. Cleanup of the accident took a very long time, in part, because one of the trucks was carrying batteries, which gave authorities environmental hazard concerns.

Still, you’d think that after it was obvious the wreck wouldn’t be cleaned up for hours that traffic engineers would do more than post a few signs to reroute traffic. You’d think they would be more proactive in multiple ways to allow motorists to get to their destinations so they wouldn’t be stuck in vehicles.

For example, a mother with two young children hit the traffic impasse around 4 p.m. around mile marker 135 headed toward Columbia. By 8 p.m., their car had moved about five miles. Because they couldn’t get out of the car, which the driver said moved slower than a walking pace, one kid couldn’t hold it and used the bathroom in her pants. The other one didn’t fare much better. Cell phone service was intermittent because so many people were making calls.

By our calculation, one mile’s worth of cars in two lanes is just over 500 cars. With vehicles moving at best at 2 miles an hour, somewhere around 500 to 1,000 cars were exiting the Interstate every hour.

With that much of a clog over hours and hours, you’d expect state officials would have figured out a way to move things along more quickly.

And while all of this is bad enough, what is really worrisome is to recall how bad traffic has been in recent hurricane evacuations. Thursday’s experience on Interstate 26 doesn’t convince me that South Carolina is ready at all to deal with unexpected traffic surges and clogs.

All I can say is this: “Lord help us” (in more ways than one.)

(The mother sitting in the car said “Amen” when I read this column to her. Then she added, “If you were running a business like this, people would be fired.” )

League launches statewide campaign for judicial diversity

Less than one-third of South Carolina's state judges hired through the merit-selection process are women. Yet, women make up 35 percent of the lawyers here, and account for 52 percent of the state population.


Zia

Only 9 percent of those judgeships are occupied by a minority.

The League of Women Voters of South Carolina kicked off a campaign Friday to examine the need for a diverse and independent judiciary. A panel of speakers met for hours in Charleston to discuss the issue and the next steps to reform.

"As of June 2010, 56 out of 186 judges in the state of South Carolina were women, and women represented only 6 out of 46 judges at the Circuit Court level," said Barbara Zia, president of the League of Women Voters of South Carolina. "Additionally, there are only 17 African-American, and no Latino or Asian judges out of 186 throughout the state. We can do better."


South Carolina state Rep. Chandra E. Dillard of Greenville, former Family Court Judge Frances P. Segars-Andrews, senior investigative reporter Rick Brundrett with the S.C. Policy Council's "The Nerve," and state Rep. David Mack of Charleston discuss the issue of "How Can We Achieve this Vision of a Fair and Balanced Judiciary?" during the event sponsored by the League of Women Voters of South Carolina on Friday at the Charleston Museum Auditorium. Photo by Julie Hussey, Civic Communications Inc.

The state's Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Administrative Law, Circuit Court and Family Court use the merit-selection process and election by the General Assembly. Probate Court judges are elected by popular election. Masters- in-Equity are appointed by the governor with advice and consent of the General Assembly.

While six states explicitly require diversity among nominating commissioners, South Carolina does not. Ten states that use merit selection have adopted provisions that prohibit discrimination in the nominating process. South Carolina has no such provision.

The national League of Women Voters has worked to promote a fair and impartial judiciary for more than 10 years, Zia said. In 2009, a two-year campaign began focused on the judiciary in the state of Kansas.

"After the successes of this project in Kansas, we are excited to launch the campaign in South Carolina, and help America fulfill its promise to provide equal justice for all," Zia concluded.

Charleston starts bike enforcement initiative today

Motorists and bicyclists on the peninsula can expect warning citations starting today and continuing through the week if they violate the city's revised Bike Ordinance or other safety laws. After that, the tickets will carry real consequences.

From December 2009 through July 2010, there were three fatal collisions in the city of Charleston that involved an automobile and bicyclist. In each, the bicyclist died.

Since July, city officials, staff and members of the biking community have met several times to produce an educational initiative for motorists and bicyclists; in particular, when interaction between the two occurs.

Several steps for improvement have been taken to date:

  • The Charleston Bicycle Ordinance has been amended and enhanced to improve safety measures; particularly on the peninsula.

  • Enhanced communication continues to occur between city officials and those involved in the bicycling community.

  • The city is creating a Bicycle/Driver Education Campaign to begin soon.

The enforcement initiative will focus on the area west of King Street between Spring and Broad streets.

Goodwill trains, places disabled people in jobs

A vast, untapped workforce of willing and able workers can help area businesses succeed in the competitive federal marketplace -- and Goodwill Industries of Lower South Carolina would like to introduce them.

October is Disability Awareness Month and Goodwill officials point out that through the AbilityOne Network, people who are blind or have significant disabilities can find employment and gain independence. AbilityOne is a federal program and as part of the network, Goodwill provides jobs and training opportunities for more than 350 Lowcountry residents.

Job and training opportunities for the disabled have been provided through Goodwill's commercial service contracts, such as janitorial, commissary shelf-stocking, mailroom, switchboard and food service, to government installations including the Naval Weapons Station, SPAWAR, Beaufort MCAS and Shaw AFB.


Smith

According to the ADA National Network, more than 54 million people or nearly one in six Americans have some form of physical or mental impairment that substantially limits their daily activities, including working, walking, seeing, hearing or caring for themselves.

"Despite their circumstances, people with disabilities have unique skills and talents," said Robert Smith, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Lower South Carolina. "Many people with disabilities need little, if any, accommodations to perform their jobs."

Last year, Goodwill was able to place more than 1,000 people into new jobs and served over 19,000 in South Carolina. To find out more about the AbilityOne Network and Goodwill, go online.

Bishop John England embraced American democracy

John England was born in Cork, Ireland, on September 23, 1786, the eldest son of Thomas England, a successful tobacco merchant, and Honora Lordan. He received a good education in Cork's Protestant schools. After initially preparing for a legal career, England decided to study for the priesthood and was ordained in 1808. In Cork he served in various parishes and headed the diocesan schools and seminary. He edited a patriotic secular newspaper and was prominent in the movement for Catholic emancipation and opposition to the British government's attempt to veto bishops' appointments.


England

In 1820 Pope Pius VII appointed England the first bishop of the Diocese of Charleston, encompassing the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. At England's arrival in Charleston, the diocese had three priests and five thousand Catholics. The Catholic community was disorganized and had experienced years of dissension and schism. England addressed these problems with tact and energy, earning the nickname "Steam Bishop." He traveled repeatedly to all corners of his huge diocese, set up parishes, recruited priests, and established a boys' academy in Charleston and a seminary to train new priests. In 1829 he founded the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady of Mercy. England was one of the first Irish American bishops and became an important leader of the Irish community nationwide.

England's modern views on education and free expression and his experience of British persecution of Irish Catholics led him to embrace American democracy and influenced his vision of a free church in a free society. He was the first important American Catholic theoretician of freedom of religion and separation of church and state. In 1822 England founded the first regularly published American Catholic newspaper, the United States Catholic Miscellany.

In 1826 England became the first Catholic priest to address Congress. There, he asserted that Catholicism and the Constitution were compatible: "I would not allow to the Pope or to any bishop of our church, outside the Union, the smallest interference with the humblest vote at our most insignificant balloting box." To reconcile traditional Catholicism with American democracy, England established a diocesan constitution. Under these new regulations, parishes elected lay vestries to take care of the church's financial and physical needs. Lay delegates and clergy met in annual conventions to deliberate and pass resolutions for the bishop's approval. This system was successful in promoting Catholic unity and support for the church, but subsequent bishops ignored England's example.

England abhorred slavery but stated that his church permitted retention in servitude of descendants of those originally enslaved. He hoped that American slavery would not continue, but he saw no quick end to it. He worked to improve the condition of blacks. In 1835 he established a Charleston academy for free colored youths, but threats of white mob violence forced its closure.

Affable and sophisticated, England was well received in South Carolina society. He was active in the Charleston Library Society and the Literary and Philosophical Society, serving as a curator of the latter's natural history museum. His health declined during 1841, and he died in
Charleston on April 11, 1842. He was buried in the crypt of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Charleston.

Five great cuts of beef

Downtown Charleston's neighborhood butcher shop and market, Ted's Butcherblock at 334 East Bay St., is celebrating its fifth anniversary with an all-day block party from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16. The event includes a cookout of hog, ducks and oysters, live music by The Bushels, and beer and wine samplings throughout the day. Cost is $12 per plate. For more info, click here.


Dombrowski

In honor of his fifth anniversary, we decided to ask the Butcherblock's owner, Ted Dombrowski, for his five favorite cuts of beef.

5. Beef Short Ribs - Perfect for braising during the cooler weather

4. Beef Teres Major - Not quite as tender as filet, but great flavor and half the price.

3. Beef Brisket - The best cut for smoking all day, and ideal when you're feeding a crowd.

2. Beef Hanger Steak - The perfect cut when you want to cook a great steak in a short amount of time, whether on the grill or on the stove.

1. Bone-In Ribeye - By far the most flavorful cut. I like to grill rib roasts for the holidays.
