The Most Exciting Live Entertainment Game in South Carolina

If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled, pulse-pounding way to have fun all day, grab an axe and get your throw on at Lumber Jill’s! Axe throwing is the newest, most popular live entertainment game in the Lowcountry. It’s kind of like darts…but with axes! Axe throwing is great for a few hours of amusement, stress relief, team building, and even corporate events in Daniel Island, SC. Whether you’re looking for a great way to celebrate the weekend or want a new idea for your company event, Lumber Jill’s has got you covered.

The Lumber Jill’s revolution began after co-owners Jill and Heath spent a date night with friends throwing axes in Charleston. After having so much fun, the entrepreneurial couple quickly realized they could create their own take on axe throwing. Soon after, Lumber Jill’s was born!

The name Lumber Jill’s isn’t just a play on our co-owner’s name – it involves a really interesting piece of history too. Across the pond, the Women’s Timber Corps “manned” the lumber yards in England while the men were serving in WWII. They affectionately became known as Lumberjills, Britain’s answer to Rosie the Riveter. Without these brave ladies, Lumber Jill’s wouldn’t exist. We would be remiss if we didn’t salute them for the example they set!

At the end of the day, we want to provide every one of our guests with an outstanding axe-throwing experience. So, grab your friends, co-workers, family, or favorite people and join us for an axe-throwing party you won’t soon forget.

Why is Axe Throwing in Daniel Island, SC So Popular?

Axes haven’t been this popular in America since “The Shining” hit theaters way back in 1980!

In cities all around the nation, axe-throwing facilities are popping up left and right as a fun, healthy way for people of all ages to congregate and enjoy a night of friendly competition and stress relief. In the last few years, the sport of axe throwing has exploded – so much so that the World Axe Throwing League was assembled in 2017 to coordinate international axe-throwing competitions. Since that time, many axe-throwing events have popped up on national TV stations like ESPN.

Axe Throwing
But why is axe throwing so popular? Here are just a few reasons why Lumber Jill’s and axe throwing as a whole is a hit in South Carolina:
stress-relief
Stress Relief

Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in Daniel Island is for stress relief. We’ve even heard some customers say it’s a cheaper form of therapy! In reality, axe tossing gives you a therapeutic release that is hard to replicate. A few hard throws with an axe and your body releases a flood of endorphins, which help increase your energy, improve your mood, and facilitate healthy blood flow. If you have pent-up anger, nothing feels better than chucking a heavy axe at a target. Hitting a bullseye is even better!

Exercise

Since axe throwing is such an exhilarating activity, many people don’t realize that they are exercising their arms, legs, abs, pecs, and even back when they come to Lumber Jill’s. Like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, axe throwing works several muscle groups at once. These exercises strengthen your core and help define your muscles. When coupled with a healthy diet, regular axe-throwing activities can even help you shed a few pounds.

Our knowledgeable axe-throwing coaches are trained to keep a keen eye on every axe thrower, whether they’re solo or with a group. If, for ANY REASON our coaches feel like a person shouldn’t throw an axe, they will not be permitted to do so. To help keep our facility safe, please refrain from bringing your own axe to Lumber Jill’s. The same goes for any other kind of throwable object.

We offer shoe rentals for $3 per person.
Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow outside axes at Lumber Jill’s. The same goes for any other object like throwing stars or throwing knives. We’ve got all you need to have the time of your life, including throwing axes.

A Midwest company has purchased 215 Benefitfocus Way, the 145,800-square-foot building on Daniel Island for $61.5 million.

CBRE arranged the sale of the Class A corporate headquarters office building, which Benefitfocus leases long-term, CBRE said in a news release.

Chicago-based Zeller, an office owner and operator that’s been active in the Southeast since 2017, purchased the four-story, single-tenant property from an undisclosed seller.

The acquisition is part of a long-term commitment to invest in “growth-oriented markets with high-quality assets,” according to the release.

“Charleston’s impressive demographics, specifically job growth and population growth, continue to attract new capital sources from outside of the market,” CBRE's Patrick Gildea said in a statement. “Class A properties with nearby amenities continue to be the top targets for capital.”

Gildea, Matt Smith, Grayson Hawkins, Charles Carmody, Chip Shealy and Cathy Delcoco represented the seller. The company’s Southeast Institutional Debt and Structured Finance Team, lead by Harris Ralston and C.J. Kelly, represented the buyer in the debt financing.

Zeller currently has 1.3 million square feet of assets under management in the Southeast.

Allegedly fraudulent COVID testing site received more than $120M in federal reimbursement funds

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- A COVID-19 testing company with hundreds of pop-up locations across the country, including one on Clements Ferry Road, is under investigation in several states amid allegations of fraudulent testing and unfair trade practices.

Now, Lowcountry residents who visited the site are questioning the company’s intentions.

“My concern is were they actually using real tests and what are they going to do with my personal information,” Brickyard Plantation resident Cathy Young said. “Were they primarily just trying to be reimbursed for these tests or were they selling the information online to other people?”

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Covid Control’s partner lab, Doctors Clinical Lab, has received $122 million dollars in federal reimbursement cash through the Uninsured Relief Fund.

The personal information handed over to the company has also raised concerns. Upon arrival to the site, test-seekers are asked to scan a QR code and enter their name, date of birth, insurance information, home address, driver’s license number, a picture of photo identification, and signature.

Daniel Island resident, Tara Sahn, used the QR code to register but said she then decided to get tested elsewhere. Later that night, Sahn received an email with negative test results for a test that she never took, complete with a timestamp of when the test was taken and when it was processed.

“I was surprised,” Sahn said. “I never got tested there, so how do you have a result for me?”

Young and Sahn are just two people among hundreds across the country who have lodged complaints against the Center for Covid Control. The Illinois-based company offers free same-day rapid testing with results in less than 20 minutes, according to their website.

In recent weeks, the Oregon Department of Justice, Illinois Attorney General, and multiple other states have opened investigations into the company which received an “F” rating by the Better Business Bureau. The company has since issued a temporary pause on operations due to “unusually high patient demand” and to focus on retraining staff.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control does not have Center for Covid Control listed as an official testing location on its website and said the Clements Ferry Road site is not certified to operate in South Carolina.

DHEC also reports the department has not received test results from Center for COVID Control’s Charleston site which has been open for five months. All cases of COVID-19 are required to be reported to DHEC.

Young and Sahn both said they are searching for answers and are eager to see the investigations into the company unfold.

“I would like to see this pursued and ensure that this can’t happen again to somebody else, that these sites are policed and that there’s more information put out there about how to ensure that a site you find is legitimate,” Young said.

The Federal Trade Commission has released tips to verify whether a COVID-19 testing site is legitimate.

BE alum sets golden standard at Notre Dame

Like so many players who have played under the golden dome before him, University of Notre Dame football player Leo Albano gives his school a rousing thumbs-up for its football and academics. But the former Bishop England standout student-athlete, who is a senior academically in South Bend, takes it one step further.“Notre Dame totally exceeded any expectations I had in terms of faith, football, academics, the family aspect,” Albano said. “Everything was what you would expect and only dream about and then some.&rdquo...

Like so many players who have played under the golden dome before him, University of Notre Dame football player Leo Albano gives his school a rousing thumbs-up for its football and academics. But the former Bishop England standout student-athlete, who is a senior academically in South Bend, takes it one step further.

“Notre Dame totally exceeded any expectations I had in terms of faith, football, academics, the family aspect,” Albano said. “Everything was what you would expect and only dream about and then some.”

Albano recently concluded his career as a member of the Fighting Irish football team. His academic and athletic success germinated at Bishop England, where he was all-state in three sports, including football, baseball and basketball.

As a football player at BE, Albano rewrote the school’s record book. He set school records for a single season in rushing with 1,639 yards in 2017. He also set the school record for touchdowns in a single season with 28.

Albano also owns two career records. He scored 67 career touchdowns and owns a school-best 4,017 career rushing yards. He had nearly 7,600 total yards.

When it came time for Notre Dame to cast its recruiting nets, Albano’s senior year (2017-18) at BE, coach Brian Kelly saw that Albano’s skills, passion, dedication and work ethic would make him a perfect fit for the fighting Irish. Albano joined the Fighting Irish as a preferred walk-on and most of his time was as a member of the scout team. But Albano continued to work hard, and he made the traveling squad his senior year, quite a Rudy-esque accomplishment for a walk-on.

He played in four games this season for the Fighting Irish, who began the season with Kelly at the helm of the program, and concluded it with Marcus Freeman as head coach after Kelly departed to coach at LSU.

Albano played in four games, and carried the ball for the first time in his career in his last home game in South Bend. He gained a yard. He also saw special teams’ action in road victories.

“Playing in those games was really a crazy experience,” Albano said. “I got to play in two of the most hostile environments in college football (Florida State and Virginia Tech), and just to see all of the hard work start to pay off was really rewarding. I am just thankful for the opportunity.”

Albano has a 3.33 GPA, working toward a bachelor of science degree in chemical and biomolecular engineering. After college, he’s planning to use his chemical engineering degree in the oil and gas industry or the chemical industry. He has no set plans yet though.

Albano has played on Notre Dame teams that have qualified for the College Football Playoffs and major bowl games.

The final game of the season was a loss to Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl, spoiling Freeman’s head-coaching debut. Still, Albano says Notre Dame made the right hire.

“I think the team responded remarkably to coach Freeman,” Albano said. “You can really tell he cares about his players and wants to prepare us to the highest degree. He does a fantastic job of motivating and just getting people where they need to be and making sure everyone knows their role and competes as hard as they can in everything they do.”

Leo is not the only Albano on campus. His sister, Emma, is a member of the Bishops’ track and field team after a most impressive prep career.

“I see my sister about one to two times a week on campus whether that is in passing or at Sunday Mass,” Albano said. “Hopefully with more time this semester I will be able to spend even more time with her.”

Philip Simmons wrestling team offers promising group of grapplers

From the 106-pound weight class to heavyweight, Philip Simmons High School wrestling coach Anthony Sardelli has some athletes who have personality – and talent.

Take 106-pounder Alex Watson, who is in his first year in the program. Sardelli first saw Watson on the football field and could only dream of what he could do on the wrestling mat after seeing a dose of Watson’s athleticism. Despite being a wrestling newcomer, Watson is currently ranked fifth in the state in Class AA-A by SCMat.com. and owns a 20-3 record.

And then there’s the heavyweight Abram Wright.

“He’s like a big teddy bear until the match begins,” Sardelli said. “Then a switch flips, and he’s on the go. He’s another outstanding leader.”

Welcome to Sardelli’s world. He’s the coach of the No. 8 team in the state among Class AA-A teams. The Iron Horses are a group that doesn’t have a long history because the school has been open only a few years. But the Iron Horses are getting to the top with one eye

on the competition and the other on COVID-19 pandemic.

Two seasons ago, the Iron Horses sent seven wrestlers to the state. However, that number dropped to only four last winter as COVID-19 affected the schedule and the number of playoff entrants was limited.

This season, the Iron Horses have seven wrestlers who are ranked in the top 10 of the 14 weight classifications. That’s not too bad for a program that Sardelli built with a somewhat different recruiting pitch.

“If you’re breathing, fairly athletic and not playing basketball, I’m going to recruit you,” was Sardelli’s pitch in the hallways of the school a couple of years ago.

Freshman Jimmy Chambers finished third over the weekend in the Skip Parker Invitational, which was hosted by Fort Dorchester High School. He’s currently ranked No. 7 in the state in the 113-pound division.

Sophomore Drew McDonnell is ranked third in the 120-pound division. He was a state qualifier last winter in the 106 class.

Zion Beaufort has been slowed by injury for most of the season, but is ranked No. 5 in the state after qualifying for the state last winter at 120 pounds.

Senior A.J. McLanahan is ranked No. 3 at 132 pounds after qualifying for the state last winter at 138 pounds.

“He’s the rock of the team,” Sardelli said of McLanahan. “He’s the best leader I’ve ever been around. He sets an example by the way he works and never stops grinding.”

Sophomore Isaac Schimpf was a state qualifier at 170 pounds last winter and will bid for a state title in the talented weight class.

Wright, the heavyweight, is currently No. 6 in the state.

The Iron Horses have some stiff competition in the Lower State this season, including Berkeley County foes Cross and Timberland.

Timberland and Philip Simmons will battle for Region 6-AA supremacy.

“To win the Region 6-AA championship, you have to beat one of the best teams in the state,” Sardelli said. “You have to be one of the best teams in the state to win the region.”
