2012 PGA Spectators Arrive at Walterboro

More than 200,000 people will make their way to Kiawah Island for the 2012 PGA Championship in August, a seven-day affair that is expected to be the largest sporting event in South Carolina history. Many of them, participants and spectators alike, will be introduced to the Palmetto State when they touch down at Lowcountry Regional Airport in Walterboro.

Lowcountry Regional, just 51 miles northwest of Kiawah, is the state’s largest general aviation airport. With three runways ranging in length from 5,500 feet to 6,007 feet, it can easily accommodate all corporate jets, as well as the popular Boeing 737. And, according to Walterboro Economic Development Director Hank Amundson, the airport already has a history with golf tournaments, helping to serve the transportation needs of people attending the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, and the Heritage, in Hilton Head, South Carolina, in April 2012.

“That was the busiest April we ever had at the airport,” Amundson commented. “Some people took a helicopter from here to Augusta, while others got there on smaller planes.”

He added that rental cars are available at the airport and that a limousine service also will provide transportation from Walterboro to Kiawah.

Walterboro Tourism Director Donna Laird cited several other reasons why flying through Walterboro might be more fun and less frenetic than using a larger, more congested commercial airport such as those in Charleston and Savannah. For example, pilots can call ahead and order lunch from one of many local restaurants, and passengers can walk right from the plane to their ground transportation. The airport also has a pilot’s lounge and a flight planning room, “just to make the whole flight experience less stressful,” Laird pointed out.

“A Lufthansa pilot who landed his own plane here told me there isn’t any place easier to fly into,” she said.

Possibly more important than convenience, though, is the cost of putting Lowcountry Regional Airport on your travel itinerary. There is no landing fee, and ramp charges are waived for pilots who purchase fuel, which is $1 to $1.50 per gallon cheaper than at other airports in the area.

“We have reduced our fuel prices to the lowest in the region for commercial airports,” said Bill Young, mayor of Walterboro and, since 1989, vice chairman of the Walterboro-Colleton Airport Commission. “And, since the privacy and convenience we offer is attractive to many travelers, a number of well-known celebrities fly in and out of Lowcountry Regional.”

The airport, no more than a rough landing strip in the 1920s and 1930s, earned its place in American history during World War II, serving as a training ground both for the Tuskegee Airmen, the nation’s first African-American military aviators, and Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle’s Tokyo Raiders, who avenged the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Today, according to Young, the airport is primed to serve as an economic engine for Walterboro and its environs and fully prepared to offer financial incentives to pilots and to companies that choose to locate to the area. For example, aircraft that use Lowcountry Regional as their home base earn a property tax reduction from 10.5 percent to only 4 percent.

“Two jets from Columbia recently relocated to our airport, saving their owners about $70,000 a year in taxes,” Young pointed out.

He added that incentives also are available to help pay for construction and infrastructure costs for companies that move to the area surrounding the airport, along with tax credits worth up to $4,500 for each job created. In addition, as a member of the Southern Carolina Alliance, Colleton County can offer “additional benefits and opportunities.”

“We see Lowcountry Regional as an opportunity to bring in good paying jobs for our citizens and to broaden our tax base,” Young said. “We believe that we have much to offer aviation-related industries as South Carolina expands into the aeronautics arena.”

Improve Your Game with Golf Tec

If you have been frustrated with your golf game lately, it is time to let a Golf Tec professional guide you in the right direction.

“We identify the first flaw in your swing and work from there rather than trying to work from the end result,” explained Sean Petrone, franchise owner and director of instruction for Golf Tec in Mount Pleasant. “A lot of others offer band aids after only a few lessons, but that doesn’t happen here at Golf Tec. Our sessions typically take a year to complete and it’s a lot of hard work.

“It’s definitely a process to teach the correct technique,” said Petrone. Starting with a full swing evaluation, instructors at Golf Tec will figure out each individual’s goals and make a diagnosis.

Including Petrone, who has given over five thousand golf lessons, the Mount Pleasant team of Golf Tec professionals includes Boykin Powers – one of only seven PGA Master Teaching Professionals in South Carolina – and Simons Cuthbert – a class A PGA Professional.

The five factors of Golf Tec’s proven path to learning a better golf swing are fact-based diagnosis, sequential lessons, video-based practice, advanced retention tools and precision matched clubs. “We help you learn through all five senses,” said Petrone.

Golf Tec also provides motion measurement sensors, digital video, TOUR video comparisons and the capability of biofeedback beeps to fine tune a particular issue.

Clients of Golf Tec range from beginners to professionals who make their living at swinging the club. “Everyone, at some point in their game, wants to learn new techniques so they can play better.”

With over three million golf lessons given and a 95% success rate, it is no wonder Golf Tec has been coaching across the country for sixteen years. If frustration is working its way into your golf game and you would like to arrange for lessons; or to register for a free Momentum Newsletter, visit Golf Tec online at or call (843) 654-1046.

Restoring the Soul: The Gardens of I’On

I once read that beauty is the most powerful thing in the world, able to heal, soothe and restore the hearts of those in its presence. Homeowners in I’On, located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, understand the power of beauty in its truest sense. Behind the gates of the neighborhood’s Charleston-inspired houses, the gardens of I’On are as diverse as their owners. In a single afternoon, visitors to I’On’s gardens can be transported from an Italian hideaway to a creek-side retreat, from a magical courtyard to the tropical West Indies.

Creek-side Retreat Brooke

Niznik’s creek-side retreat is stunning. Stepping through the door onto the side porch is like walking into a wardrobe and finding Narnia. The lush garden is reminiscent of a flourishing creek-side habitat. A magnificent oak sweeps across the span of the garden, blessing it with cooling shade. Beneath it, hibiscus, begonias and impatiens thrive around a small fountain in the center of the garden, providing the sound of a bubbling creek. Bright pink stargazer lilies infuse the garden with their refreshing aroma. A bench at the gate invites visitors, and, at night, tiny white flowers throughout the garden glow and light the way. Toward the back, banana trees and ferns surround a small sitting area. Another world waits through a small gate at the back of the garden. A small spot of grass with a bench creates a park-like atmosphere beneath the pine trees, perfect for Brooke’s playful dog. Wild plants and exquisite purple flowers reach for the sky as they border the area a beautiful Narnian meadow.

Italian Afternoon Retreat

When planning her garden, Mary Hewlette wished for an afternoon retreat. Her back porch sits on the I’On walking path, where visitors regularly stop for a cold glass of water on a hot Carolina afternoon. But since the sun is simply too warm there, the garden was created on the other side of the house. As you enter the scrolled iron gate, you are greeted by pink salvia mixed with white angelonia in pots along the path and creeping fig lining the steps. To the right sits a fountain, bubbling happily, while four crepe

myrtles tower over each corner of the garden, providing afternoon shade. To the left, an apricot antique climbing rose drapes over a wooden pergola. Beneath the pergola is the afternoon retreat—on the wall, an ancient Italian frieze overlooks a cozy iron table and four chairs.

West Indies Oasis

Gail Summars’ home, white with bright teal shutters, draws its inspiration from the West Indies. Unlike other gardens, hers is surrounded by a white concrete wall with a gate next to a fountain set into the back wall. Palm trees, with hidden lights to brighten the garden in the evening, proudly line the walls, while banana trees provide cover for the ferns that mark the path. Purple yuccas stand tall in pots along the central path, as vivid blue plumbagos brighten the way throughout the summer.

Garden Courtyard

Heidi Woody has created her own world behind the white wooden fence covered in Lord Banks rose and plumbago. The gate swings open on a garden courtyard with a classic fountain as the centerpiece. Four white crepe myrtles surround the fountain, providing shade for the area. Grassy spots next to the fence receive shade from corner trees and provide a lovely spot for Heidi’s children to play

East Cooper Montessori Charter School

“No one knows we’re back here,” says Jody Swanigan, founder and principal of East Cooper Montessori Charter School.

I was surprised myself to find a school inside I’On. I’ve passed the entrance to the Mount Pleasant neighborhood many times, and I’ve noticed the Charleston-style architecture of the homes and the compact shopping area just off the Mathis Ferry Road roundabout. So when a co-worker mentioned the school, I had to see for myself.

Tucked into a tiny corner of the neighborhood, the school doesn’t look like much at first glance, but I see a rendering of its dream leaning on an easel as I enter the office. A volunteer is bustling around as Jody chats animatedly on the phone.

“Let me show you around the school,” Jody says, after I explain my mission to her. I’m working on a series of articles destined to become an I’On lifestyle magazine. She’s thrilled at the chance for publicity that will further her mission. It is clear that Jody loves educating children and that she sees something special in each one of her young charges. Normally, she wouldn’t allow an interruption like this at the beginning of the school year, she explains, but she can’t resist showing me the students interacting with their teachers.

“We’ve been raising money for a new school building,” Jody told me. “We’re not there yet, but people help out in many ways. For instance, the deck we’re walking on was donated.”

84 Lumber chipped in with the initial deck two years ago; this year, the school was lucky enough to receive another donation from Guy C. Lee, which extended the deck to include two additional classrooms and a technology lab. The East Cooper Montessori Charter School was founded in 2003 with 44 students and has been growing steadily since. The lower and upper elementary schools, which serve grades 1 through 7, share the current complex of mobile classrooms, but everyone anticipates the opening of the new building for the 2007-2008 school year.

A common misconception about the school is that it is private.

“We’re a public school,” Jody laughs, “but no one seems to know that. Just last week, a parent in I’On called to ask me what the yearly tuition was.”

East Cooper Montessori is part of the Charleston County School District but, as a charter school, operates independently. While not necessarily separate but equal, Jody likes the fact that she can lead the school the direction she wants. As she leads me from classroom to classroom, I can see the students actively engaged in learning, although it hardly seems like work. In one room, a teacher is on the floor with her group of children; in another, a teacher challenges the older students.

It’s a different way of educating, to be sure, but 100 years of successful learning is proof that it works. The premise of the Montessori method is that children are respected as being different from adults as well as from other children. In addition, proponents believe that young children possess an extra sensitivity to learning. Seeing it in action was a learning experience for me. It almost made me wish my kids were still in school. Almost.

I’On Lifestyle is Very Eventful

I’On presents a modern take on an old-fashioned concept, featuring old-Charleston-style homes on tree-lined streets, an air of neighborliness and an array of special gatherings. Since many of them are open to the general public, even people who are not residents of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood have ample opportunity to experience the I’On lifestyle.

Some special events actually take place outside the confi nes of I’On, such as the Halloween treat “Poe— Back from the Grave,” marking the anniversary of Edgar Allen Poe’s death and taking place on Sullivan’s Island, where the prolif c writer spent time serving his country.

Other events are less eerie but guaranteed to provide a fun time for all who attend. Thursdays in October are set aside for “Markets in the Square,” while First Friday draws a crowd for a cocktail party each month. On a lighter note, every second Tuesday is set aside for a women’s coffee. While some events are solely for I’On residents, others, such as the Thursday markets, are designed to encourage participation from the general public.

If music is your love, you’ll want to learn more about I’Onissimo. For the last four years, talented I’On residents and friends from “outside” have taken great pleasure in presenting community concerts for all to enjoy. From a small, core group, I’Onissimo has grown to more than 35 musicians and is believed to be the only neighborhood- based organization of its type in South Carolina. Supported by the I’On Trust, I’Onissimo is dedicated to bringing music to adults and children in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

I’On offers so much more than music. The event schedule includes a quarterly lecture series and holiday celebrations such as the Fourth of July CelebratI’On, which features a parade, fireworks and a band blast. During the Christmas season, you’ll have the chance to enjoy the Holiday Tour of Homes.

Members-only events include Kids Night Out, oyster roasts, margarita mixers and a New Year’s party. Located on Hobcaw Creek, the Creek Club offers fabulous views of the surrounding marshes from spacious porches. It is the perfect place to plan a special event—for instance, a wedding or something more casual, like an oyster roast. The Creek Club is available to the public, and fees and requirements are posted on the Web for your convenience.

Shopping in Mount Pleasant, SC

Towne Centre

Towne Centre hasn’t been around long, but it has become the place to shop for East Cooper residents. And no wonder, with shops to please everyone, including most of your favorite national chains such as The Gap, Barnes & Noble and Bed Bath & Beyond. There are also local boutiques such as Shooz, Copper Penny, Palmetto Moon and the Sand Dollar Gift Gallery.

It’s easy to spend a full day at Towne Centre – and not just during the holidays. An outdoor mall with tree-lined sidewalks, you’ll find upscale shopping mingled with stores that appeal to the younger set. Families with young children will appreciate Baby Bloomers for gifts and apparel, while teens will head straight for Old Navy or American Eagle. Women will find an impressive array of shops that cater to their style, including Chico’s, White House/Black Market and two recent additions, J. Jill and Coldwater Creek.

After a shopping expedition, it’s time to relax in one of the many restaurants, such as LongHorn Steakhouse or Hatchell’s American Tapas Tavern, perhaps followed by a movie at the Palmetto Grande.

In addition to individual store promotions, Mount Pleasant Towne Centre offers special holiday events throughout the year.

Belle Hall Shopping Center

Just a bit newer than Towne Center, Belle Hall Shopping Center has become a main attraction where Long Point Road meets Interstate 526. Anchored by SteinMart at one end and PetSmart and Ross Dress for Less at the other, Belle Hall includes a variety of local and national shops. Eye care, dentistry and financial planning services co-exist with boutiques such as Belladea, The Coastal Cupboard and Sassy’s. You’ll also find jewelry stores, shoe shops, menswear and the all-important grocery store.

As with Towne Centre, it’s not all about shopping at Belle Hall. When it is time to eat, Belle Hall offers an eclectic variety of dining experiences, including Dog & Duck pub, Six Tables, Brixx Pizza and Beef O’Brady’s. Personal care is important, too, and you’ll find salons, from budget to upscale, as well as a spa to pamper yourself, Urban Nirvana. Fitness Now is there to help you keep in shape.

Similar in style to Towne Centre, Belle Hall is an open-air mall with trees and walkways.

Coleman Boulevard and Pitt Street

Before the Isle of Palms Connector was built, Coleman Boulevard was Mount Pleasant’s main thoroughfare and the primary route to the beaches. Though there was never a specific shopping district, a variety of shopping centers served the needs of East Cooper residents. One of the largest is the Sea Island Center, where Chuck Dawley Boulevard and Ben Sawyer Boulevard meet.

Another major shopping center on Coleman is the Moultrie Plaza, across the street from the soon-to-be-rebuilt Moultrie Middle School, where you’ll find a fitness center, an antiques and crafts mall, a variety of smaller boutiques and a restaurant or two. Just down the road, a new breed of boutique is cropping up: live/work developments.

The original shopping district in Mount Pleasant was Pitt Street in the Old Village. Decades ago, you could find a grocery store, a doctor’s office, post office and much more, including the Pitt Street Pharmacy. This beloved drug store, with its fountain drinks and old-fashioned malteds, remains a favorite and is well worth a visit. Other shops in the Old Village include the Village Bakery, Expectations Studio, Out of Hand and the Old Village Post House restaurant.

The Market at Oakland

The site of a former working plantation dating back to 1696, The Market at Oakland promises to be one of East Cooper’s most popular retail shopping districts. Following the design of Towne Centre and Belle Hall, The Market at Oakland is an outdoor, mall-type center anchored by a Super Wal-Mart and Kohl’s department store. In between will be a tree-lined pedestrian shopping village.

In addition to Wal-Mart and Kohl’s, a branch of Wachovia bank is already in operation. New stores include Goin’ Postal, GameStop, Bear N’ Friends Toy Shop, Rita’s Italian Ice, WineStyles and Tresses.

The Market at Oakland will cover approximately 75 acres and include about 415,000 square feet of retail space and about 36,000 square feet of office space. The remaining 225 acres of historic Oakland Plantation will be set aside as a conservation easement.

Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant

No article on shopping East of the Cooper is complete with a mention of Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant. Founded by the Ward family, the shop had humble beginnings in a former clothing store located in Moultrie Shopping Center. Assisted by daughters Lynn, Karen and Anne, Gwynn’s expanded from a small clothing boutique into the area’s first department store.

Today, Gwynn’s is located in the Village Pointe Shopping Center and offers a full line of designer wear and accessories for women, men and children, along with elegant housewares. Service has always been a priority at Gwynn’s, and current owner Marshall Simon has taken that commitment to a higher level, often holding trunk shows and other special events. Gwynn’s also offers online personal shopping via Webcam and will even accommodate fashion or gift emergencies.

Karen’s Korner Frame and Art Gallery, Mount Pleasant

With walls covered with beautiful interpretations of the Lowcountry, Karen’s Korner is a breath of fresh air. Twelve different artists are represented, each offering their own view of the beaches, marshes and landmarks of coastal Carolina. There are original paintings in oil and in watercolor, as well as framed photographs that reflect the many moods of the region. Other artists have produced sculpture and pottery.

Karen Boals, owner of Karen’s Korner Frame and Art Gallery, enjoys showcasing the work of local artists. She pointed out the fine photography of Marc Epstein and Scott Henderson, along with short anecdotes about each one, before moving on to a display of exquisite pottery.

“This is by Matt Hunnicutt,” Karen said. “He’s only 17 and has been creating pottery since he was 5. He’s very talented.”

Original paintings also are available in a variety of styles, from classic scenes to explosions of color. Artists include Carol Ann Curran and her son, Kevin Curran, who sometimes choose similar subjects to paint but who bring very different styles to their work.

But lovely discoveries are not all that is in store at Karen’s Korner; Karen and custom framer Terri Schlein take the art of framing to a higher level. With hundreds of moldings from which to choose, even a simple frame job can seem overwhelming. When asked what is most important at Karen’s Korner, Terri is quick to say “personal service.”

“We know how to manage the chaos,” Terri laughed. “We’re happy to help choose the frame or, if people have special requests, we’ll help them find whatever they want.”

Both Karen and Terri agree that a frame should enhance the art rather than compete with it.

“No one should say ‘that’s a beautiful frame’,” Karen said. “The frame and art should work together seamlessly.”

In addition to a large selection of moldings – from Roma, a premier molding, to frames suitable for your child’s artwork – Terri and Karen offer custom framing services such as French matting and shadow boxes.

“Art is an emotional thing,” Terri said. “There is often a story behind what is being framed.”

With nearly 50 years of framing experience between them, Karen and Terri take great pride in making customers happy.

That is an art in itself.

Karen’s Korner Frame and Art Gallery is located in the Gateway to the Beach shopping center at 1405 Ben Sawyer Blvd. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, visit

Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival, Mount Pleasant

The Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival provides an excellent opportunity to take advantage of great food and entertainment and a vast array of the Charleston area’s signature souvenir, all the while enjoying coastal Carolina’s near-perfect late-spring weather. But the event, held each year in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, also can be a learning experience, a chance to delve deeply into the history of a people and an art they have practiced for more than three centuries on two continents.

“The festival serves as a venue to educate locals as well as tourists about the heritage of the Gullah-Geechee people, their culture and traditions,” according to Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival Project Director Thomasena Stokes-Marshall. “We also have entertainment, gospel songs, folklore, arts and crafts, and, of course, the largest display of sweetgrass baskets anywhere in the Lowcountry.”

For those who tire of eating, playing games, listening to music and looking at baskets, the festival offers another interesting option. Two films will be shown: “Grass Roots: The Enduring Art of the Lowcountry Basket,” and “Bin Yah: There’s No Place Like Home.”

“Grass Roots” follows Mount Pleasant basket makers as they harvest sweetgrass, weave their baskets and discuss the meaning of their work.

“Bin Yah” is a documentary that considers how growth and development have threatened historic African-American communities in Mount Pleasant. In the words of local African-American residents, the film “explores the culture, the history, the importance of land and the concept of home, giving a voice to those who seldom have a chance to be heard.”

The festival is scheduled from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, but the festivities actually get underway Friday at 6 p.m. in the Cooper River Room at the Visitors Center. “The Real Taste of Gullah Cuisine,” in its second year, will feature the creations of some of the area’s top chefs, including Kevin Mitchell, an instructor at the Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College. The evening’s activities include an unusual fashion show – featuring hats, evening purses and table vases made of sweetgrass. Musical entertainment will be provided by vocalist Zandrina Dunning, violinist Daniel D., Devon Gary on the saxophone and poet Samara Simmons. To complete the evening, world-renowned artist Jonathan Green, whose studio is on Daniel Island in nearby Berkeley County, will speak on Gullah culture.

The fun continues Saturday afternoon, but, in the morning, attendees will have the chance to listen to and talk with area scholars during a seminar concerning health, education and land issues in the African-American communities along the Gullah-Geechee Heritage Corridor. Established by Congress in 2006 to recognize the important contributions made to American culture and history by African- Americans originally brought to the Southeast coast as slaves and their descendants, the corridor runs from Wilmington, North Carolina, to Jacksonville, Florida.

An important part of that history has to do with sweetgrass baskets. Through oral history, the technique can be traced from West Africa to the plantations in the South to modernday South Carolina. Though baskets were made to store food during and after the era of slavery, they were not sold commercially until well into the 20th century. As the story goes, according to an article written by J.V. Coakley, Ida Jefferson set up the first sweetgrass basket stand on Highway 17 in the 1930s after losing her job as a day laborer. The road had been completed recently and tourists had started to use it to travel from the North. Her immediate success spawned competition from other basket makers. Today, dozens of artisans sell their baskets along the stretch of Highway 17 that runs through Mount Pleasant.

Atlantic Game and Tackle, Charleston, SC

“We are one of the bigger suppliers in the country for offshore supplies and bait shipping,” said Jeremy Burnham, a partner in the business, which is located in Mount Pleasant.

“We specialize in all offshore fishing, from the coastlines of North Carolina to Florida, and we ship to places like Costa Rica and Panama,” Burnham pointed out. “With South Carolina having a great fishing for dolphin, sailfish, blue marlin and grouper, we stay pretty busy with fishing supplies year-round.”

And if, for instance, you remember at 3 a.m. that you forgot your bait, an associate will meet you at the store to provide everything you need to complete your fishing trip.

Atlantic Game and Tackle is more than a fishing supply store. Deer and duck hunting, two popular outdoor sports in the Lowcountry, are another of the company’s specialties.

“We sell everything you could possibly need for your hunting outings,” said Burnham. “We have weapons, ammunition, deer corn, stands, all types of cameras – including infrared and motion sensor – and archery supplies. We even have a 30-yard indoor archery range. We’re the only archery store for 35 miles.”

Atlantic Game and Tackle carries archery products from top manufactures such as Mathews, Hoyt and BowTech, and apparel from Under Armour, Drake Waterfowl and Avery. Pistol and rifle enthusiasts will be familiar with names such as Beretta, Benelli, Browning, Glock and Ruger; Atlantic Game and Tackle has these products and many others in its extensive inventory.

Our caliber of products, knowledge and service is for the true sportsman or sportswoman who wants nothing but the best to enhance their sport.”
