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 Ladson, 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 Ladson, 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.

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

Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in Ladson 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!

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.

We understand that axe throwing isn’t your typical date night or even guy’s night activity. We get it – you’re hurling real axes at a target that is only a few feet away. On the surface, that can sound a little scary. But don’t worry, many of our first-time guests have questions about how our process works too.

This is a great question and one that we receive quite often (crazy, right?). Axe throwing at Lumber Jill’s is absolutely safe. In fact, safety is our #1 priority and has been since day one. 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.

Ladson area records two earthquakes in one morning; experts point to increased monitoring

SUMMERVILLE — In less than a week, the area surrounding the Golf Club at Westcott Plantation in the Ladson area recorded three minor earthquakes.But experts said it’s not something residents should start sounding an alarm over.“You’re seeing the result of increased monitoring,” said Steven Jaume, a professor with the College of Charleston’s Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences.On July 16 at around 11 p.m., a 2 magnitude earthquake was recorded near Dunbury Drive in Summe...

SUMMERVILLE — In less than a week, the area surrounding the Golf Club at Westcott Plantation in the Ladson area recorded three minor earthquakes.

But experts said it’s not something residents should start sounding an alarm over.

“You’re seeing the result of increased monitoring,” said Steven Jaume, a professor with the College of Charleston’s Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences.

On July 16 at around 11 p.m., a 2 magnitude earthquake was recorded near Dunbury Drive in Summerville. Later on July 22, two more were listed near the same area — 1.3 magnitude temblor near Thornton Drive and a 1.1 minor earthquake near Oak Leaf Road.

The three reports aren’t unusual since the area regularly sees small movements, Jaume said. There was also one that took place on July 21, but experts said it was too small to be recorded.

“Most of them go unreported because they’re too small,” Jaume said.

More survey materials mean recordings of these events will likely increase. Jaume, along with his colleagues at C of C and Georgia Tech, installed four permanent seismometers in the area, one of which streams data live.

Seismometers are used to track the motion of the ground during an earthquake. The additional monitors by Jaume and his colleagues were funded by the U.S. Geological Survey.

A similar program was planned 10 years ago with Virginia Tech. That equipment had to be taken to Virginia following the 5.8-magnitude temblor in that state in 2011.

But the main reason gathering that data is so important dates back to the 1886 quake in the Charleston area that led to the death of 100 people. It was a 7.3-magnitude temblor regarded as the largest earthquake in the Southeast.

Nine of every 10 brick buildings were leveled in Charleston and nine of every 10 in Summerville were damaged.

Experts still aren’t precisely aware where the fault is since the earthquake happened before the use of seismometers. The increased monitoring will help with that.

It will also help builders make better earthquake preparations.

“We don’t have the level of detail we would like to have,” Jaume said.

If residents do feel an earthquake, they’re advised to report it to the U.S. Geological Survey at earthquake.usgs.gov/data/dyfi/ to help with data collection.

Though residents shouldn’t be alarmed by the recent earthquakes, experts said it is a reminder to be prepared for an inevitable larger event. They advise families to add earthquake preparations as part of their emergency preparedness kits.

The South Carolina Emergency Management Division lists some helpful preparation tips on its website at scemd.org.

Unlike a hurricane, people can’t see an earthquake coming days in advance, Jaume said. So it’s best to be prepared.

A South Carolina man is facing a felony assault charge after authorities say he beat and choked his 72-year-old mother unconscious Thursday after telling her he had wrecked her car and she began to cry.

The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office said in a release Friday that it has charged Jerry Lee Wood, 45, of Ladson, with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

The felony charge carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison.

Deputies were dispatched to Mickler Drive around 7:20 a.m. Thursday. When authorities arrived about 10 minutes later, Wood’s mother told deputies she had just been assaulted by her son inside the home where they both live.

She told authorities her son got home around 7 a.m. after taking her vehicle without her permission. When Wood told her he had wrecked the car, she looked outside through the blinds in her living room and saw the damaged car.

That’s when she began to cry. But when she told her son that he was going to have to pay for the car, Wood lunged at her, according to an incident report.

The elderly woman told deputies her son knocked her phone out of her hands and began punching her in the face. She said Wood then knocked her to the ground and got on top of her.

He grabbed her by the hair, according to the incident report, and started banging her head against the ground.

That’s when she said her son told her he was “going to kill her” and that this was “her last day to live,”according to the incident report.

Deputies said Wood then began to strangle his mom until she lost consciousness.

When she regained consciousness, the woman saw Wood get off her. After he walked to the bathroom and shut the door, she told deputies that’s when she fled.

She called 911 from a neighbor’s house. When EMS arrived, she was transported to Summerville Medical Center for treatment.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Lt. Rick Carson said in a statement that the victim suffered “significant injuries in addition to being choked into unconsciousness.”

Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies approached the home where the alleged assault took place and tried to talk to Wood.

Deputies say he refused to come out, shouting, “You better not come through that door mother (expletive).”

Deputies again tried to talk to Wood through the door.

Wood refused to comply and continued to shout, according to deputies.

“I have a bomb and a hostage,” Wood warned, according to deputies. “Get off my property mother (expletive).”

After their unsuccessful first attempt, deputies returned hours later with an arrest warrant.

Wood continued to say he had a bomb inside the house, and deputies decided to kick in the front door of the house.

They found Wood sitting on the couch in the living room. Deputies cuffed him, put him the back of a patrol car and drove him to the Summerville Medical Center after he told them his right foot might be broken.

He was later booked at the L.C. Knight Detention Center in Summerville.

On Friday morning, a judge set Wood’s bond at $150,000.

The investigation is ongoing, and the sheriff’s office said additional charges may be coming.

Here's where Clemson transfer players have landed as Minnesota adds a former Tiger

Minnesota football will try to plug in one Clemson transfer to replace another on the defensive line.Darnell Jefferies, a junior with two years of eligibility remaining, announced Monday on social media that he would play for the Golden Gophers next season.“I am blessed and excited to announce that I will be committing to the University of Minnesota,” Jefferies posted on Twitter just one week after officially entering the transfer portal.If he is able to reach success anywhere near that of form...

Minnesota football will try to plug in one Clemson transfer to replace another on the defensive line.

Darnell Jefferies, a junior with two years of eligibility remaining, announced Monday on social media that he would play for the Golden Gophers next season.

“I am blessed and excited to announce that I will be committing to the University of Minnesota,” Jefferies posted on Twitter just one week after officially entering the transfer portal.

If he is able to reach success anywhere near that of former Clemson player Nyles Pinckney with the Golden Gophers, they will have successfully filled a need again. Pinckney transferred to Minnesota as a graduate student at this time last year and became a key piece of a strong defense and a nine-win team.

Pinckney started all 13 games for Minnesota (9-3), which went 6-3 in the Big Ten and smothered West Virginia, 18-6, in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl in Phoenix. He finished with 29 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble. The Gophers ranked second among Big Ten teams in scoring defense and total defense.

Jefferies appeared in 15 games (118 snaps) as a redshirt freshman in 2019 but his playing time dwindled recently. He had 17 snaps in this season’s opener against Georgia and the following week against South Carolina State but had just seven snaps the rest of the season and one game on special teams.

Some Clemson transfer players still seeking a home

Of the 11 players who left Clemson during the season, all but quarterback Taisun Phommachanh and tight end Jaelyn Lay have found new homes. Lay and Jefferies announced their departures following the Tigers’ Cheez-It Bowl victory against Iowa State in Orlando, Florida. They followed Phommachanh and wide receiver Frank Ladson leaving after the regular season. Ladson has committed to Miami.

Three players are headed to South Florida, coached by former Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott, who has been in Tampa for two years. Scott has welcomed wide receiver Ajou Ajou, running back Michel Dukes and safety Ray Thornton. Ajou had six catches in 12 games, Dukes just two carries in one game and Thornton got 74 snaps in 12 games while also being a key contributor on special teams.

Running back Lyn-J Dixon, who was expected to be the starter to replace Travis Etienne this season, quit the team after only three games and has committed to West Virginia. He rushed for 1,420 yards with 13 touchdowns at Clemson and his per-carry career average of 6.5 yards is behind only Etienne in program history (minimum 1,000 yards).

Offensive lineman Paul Tchio is headed for Georgia Tech, safety Joseph Charleston to Missouri and linebacker Kane Patterson is enrolled at Vanderbilt.

Among the players who had the most success after transferring from Clemson following the 2020 season were cornerback Derion Kendrick and running back Chez Mellusi. Kendrick a key starter for Georgia in Monday night’s national championship game and was defensive MVP in the Orange Bowl semifinals victory against Michigan. Mellusi led Wisconsin with 815 yards (4.7 per carry) and five touchdowns before suffering a season-ending injury in November. Defensive lineman Jordan Williams started for Virginia Tech but opted out of its bowl game to prepare for the NFL draft.

Todd Shanesy is a 30-year veteran of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal now focusing on Clemson athletics for the USA TODAY network.

Ladson residents concerned over growing litter problem, calling on officials to help

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD) – When driving down Stoney Road or Heaton Drive in Ladson, you’ll notice trash lining the street. But residents say it’s getting worse, and they’re not sure who to turn to.

According to Ladson resident, Amanda Collers, people have started dumping tv’s, mattresses, and even couches on the sides of the roads.

“We can’t get help from the county, getting it picked up. And we can’t collectively as a community, haul those things off,” Collers said.

Collers and other community members clean the litter themselves. They joined the nonprofit, PalmettoPride, which provides safety equipment for residents to pick up litter a few days during the year.

Aside from that, Collers said residents also go out at least once a month to collect trash on their own.

However, she said they are struggling to find help with the bigger items.

“A few years ago, we had assigned people who would contact the (Charleston) county when we had big things, and they would come out here and pick it up and now we’re having trouble getting them out here to have it picked up,” Collers explained.

When asked about this issue, Charleston County officials told News 2 Stoney Road and Heaton Drive are state roads. Officials said the county steps in if the trash is on private property.

County officials released a statement to News 2:

“If a property owner leaves trash for collection for more than 48 to 72 hours, then they are in violation of Charleston County ordinance. To address trash left on private property, residents can call Charleston County Code Enforcement. A code enforcement officer shall serve written notice on the owner of the property requiring the owner to abate or remove the litter within 15 calendar days from the date of the notice.”

Collers also said she and other community members have reached out to the South Carolina Department of Transportation. She said they told residents to submit work orders online.

On Friday, News 2 reached out to SCDOT about the issue. They said they hadn’t received any recent reports of litter, however, they said district employees inspected the area and removed what they could accommodate in their truck. They submitted a work order for the rest of the trash.

They advise residents to report issues on state roads at 855-GO-SCDOT or click here.
