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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant, 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 Mount Pleasant 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.

Common Questions. Helpful Answers.

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.
The easiest, fastest way to book your axe-throwing lane is to make your reservation online. Walk-ins are welcomed, but we cannot guarantee that we will have a spot open for you or your party. For inquiries about corporate events, facility rentals, or large celebrations, please contact us directly at (843)-879-3030.
We suggest you wear something that you find comfy and easy to wear for a few hours. Don’t wear anything that will restrict your movement. The biggest “no-no” we have in terms of dress code is open-toed shoes, which are not allowed. If you pop in for a last-minute axe-throwing session, and need a pair of shoes, don’t fret. 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.

Lowcountry doctors share advice on which COVID-19 test might be best for you

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – People are asking which test is the best to take as COVID-19 cases rise across South Carolina and the demand for testing continues to grow.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – People are asking which test is the best to take as COVID-19 cases rise across South Carolina and the demand for testing continues to grow. Currently three options are being offered including PCR lab tests, rapid tests and over-the-counter at home options. Doctors say there are benefits to each version.

Doctors say the type of test you need and when to take it depends on your symptoms and exposure to COVID-19. Another factor in the decision is availability of tests and where they’re being offered. Doctors say finding a test may be a challenge but say any test is better than none.

“Yeah we can’t keep them in stock, we got 250 in about an hour ago and we’re down to the last few,” says Chad Straughan, a Pharmacist at Tidewater Pharmacy.

From PCR tests to rapid tests and at home options, Straughan says the most effective option is the hospital offered PCR lab tests.

“Gold standard is going to be the PCR test so that’s the one the hospitals are doing,” says Straughan. “The sendoff, it takes typically 24 hours to get back and it takes it down to the DNA level.”

The next two options aren’t as accurate. Straughan says at-home options and rapid tests work best days into showing symptoms or exposure and can still return false negative results.

“If you are symptomatic at that point in time, you’re feeling like you might have a slight fever – some type of headache, you know again – typical COVID-19 systems is when you need to test to see if you have it,” says Straughan.

With at-home tests becoming harder and harder to find, Straughan says people should wait to purchase tests until they’re showing symptoms of COVID-19.

“Most often with these quick at home tests, they’re going to be false negatives because people are testing a little too early,” says Straughan.

At home tests can require varying instructions and attention to detail. Dr. Kay Durst, a Family Physician with Roper Saint Francis Hospital says it’s important to not check the test too early or leave it sitting out. She says it’s also important to consider testing more than once over a period of several days.

“You get the swab and you do it in the nose like the different tests say, usually around some of them up to 15 seconds between both nostrils, it’s very important,” says Dr. Durst.

As the demand for testing has increased since holiday travel, Dr. Durst says more testing sites are popping up and recommends sticking to a health provider to get your test.

“I would make sure you go to a reliable site to get tested,” says Dr. Durst.

As for when is the best time, Dr. Durst says if you’re sick or having trouble breathing to visit express care. If you were exposed but feel fine, doctors say to wait five days before heading to a testing site. Dr. Durst says for this, any test would work.

“At least if you could get the rapid test or the at home is better than nothing,” says Dr. Durst.

Health officials are urging anyone looking for a test to not show up to an emergency room or hospital but to instead call your doctor and schedule a test or go to a local testing site to avoid overwhelming hospitals.

Sapakoff: The perfect fit to lead the S.C. Athletic Hall of Fame

Some people get bored in retirement. Andy Solomon established a board.

A friend asked if he was crazy to accept the role of South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame executive director at a busy time when the organization is lobbying for a permanent museum site.

“Of course,” replied Solomon, 66. “But life’s too short. Let’s have fun.”

He’s the perfect person to take over for Ephraim Ulmer, who stepped down as SCAHOF executive director after 25 years. No one in South Carolina is more connected to more South Carolina sports things than Solomon.

He was the first sports information director at College of Charleston, his alma mater, the first SID at Winthrop and worked at Charleston Southern and Limestone.

That was before Solomon worked for 27 years at The Citadel while spending a lot of time at South Carolina and Clemson as an NCAA Baseball Tournament site representative.

Solomon’s gregarious networking is perhaps best summed up in his role in growing a breakfast club composed mostly of former coaches. Participants in the group originally formed by Lowcountry insurance agent Tom McQueeny vary, but those who attend or have dropped by at Page’s Okra Grill in Mount Pleasant include Les Robinson, Ralph Friedgen, Al Skinner, Roy Williams, Bobby Johnson, Bobby Cremins, Teddy Valentine and Fisher DeBerry.

No wonder Solomon earned the nickname “The Facilitator.”

In his new gig, The Facilitator is looking for a facility.

First SCHAOF goal: get the honoree train back on schedule after the 2021 ceremony was canceled because of COVID-19. The seven-member Class of 2020 includes Todd Ellis, C.J. Spiller, Gaylord Perry, Dan Driessen, Roberta Williams, Peter Boulware and Ed Lynch and will be inducted at the 60th annual SCAHOF banquet on May 23 at the Columbia Convention Center along with a four-member Class of 2022 to be named Jan. 20.

Second goal: a museum.

“We have two options,” Solomon said. “Do it ourselves or get the state legislature to help us.”

Solomon is leaning legislature, hoping there is COVID-19 money available to help a non-profit organization raise approximately $2 million and do something good for the Palmetto State.

A big check from a corporate sponsor, however, is welcome.

The state athletic halls of fame in North Carolina (Raleigh), Georgia (Macon) and Virginia (Virginia Beach) have museum sites. Solomon thinks South Carolina sports enthusiasts deserve one, too.

“It’s a preservation of history,” said Solomon, a Charleston native. “It’s a preservation of athletic history and it’s a preservation of heroes and legends. In South Carolina, we take our sports pretty seriously and we need a place to showcase that history.”

The strength of the SCAHOF has always been a sweet unison of achievement celebration (Solomon hopes to occasionally hold the annual ceremony away from its Columbia base with stops in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Greenville and Rock Hill).

The fun of sports glory ranges from football to horse racing (though no horses have been inducted).

From baseball to NASCAR (no cars either).

Typically, Solomon said, over 200 nominees must be whittled down to class of inductees every given year.

SCAHOF flaws have included athletes and other contributors slipping through the cracks. The classic case is someone from a small town in South Carolina or somewhere outside Columbia (home of most board members) who didn’t play in college in the state.

Art Shell, one of South Carolina’s two or three most accomplished athletes and also an NFL head coach, was selected for Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement before he was honored by the SCHOF. Shell grew up in North Charleston and went to Maryland State.

Hilton Head’s Dan Driessen, 70, is way overdue as part of the 2020 class: 1,464 hits over 15 Major League seasons from 1973 to 1987, including key roles on Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine teams that won the 1975 and 1976 World Series.

Somehow, Mike McGee is not in. The late former University of South Carolina athletic director is right there with Dabo Swinney and Dawn Staley among the most important figures in Palmetto State college athletics over the last half-century. He hired the Gamecocks’ most successful football coach, Steve Spurrier, and two-time College World Series winner Ray Tanner, among other accomplishments.

The SCAHOF should have a better understanding of pop culture.

Darius Rucker and other Hootie & the Blowfish band members haven’t just done a lot for charity with their golf tournaments (including a popular college tournament and the jovial Monday After The Masters) but have represented the state around the world as superfans.

Bill Murray’s impact as the Charleston RiverDogs’ Director of Fun, as guest picker on ESPN’s GameDay and as a Charleston sports ambassador is very SCAHOF worthy. He was inducted into the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame in 2012 for his contributions to baseball in Charleston and elsewhere.

Rucker and Murray displays would sure be fun at the new museum.

Again, Solomon is the ideal facilitator for all this.

He pushed for Driessen’s induction for years. He saw Murray in action while working for the RiverDogs and knows the importance of a good athletic director.

Solomon worked on the SCHOF board of directors for 15 years and closely with Ulmer since 2018. He’s well-acquainted with his revised board and executive committee, a steadfast group of more than 60 people.

All of them, including Solomon, serve as volunteers.

Mostly, Solomon knows how to (gently) twist arms to get SCAHOF things done as a tribute to the past and for sports fans of the future.

“I have a Political Science degree from College of Charleston and a Masters in History from Winthrop,” Solomon said with a chuckle. “In this job, I’m using my college degrees.”

‘It was just appalling’ Renter fights for repairs on Mount Pleasant apartment

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Ben Byrd was excited to move into a new Mount Pleasant apartment.

“You know, it seemed like a really good deal,” Byrd said. “We were told, ‘you are going to be on the water in a nice new place,’” he added.

Byrd toured a unit at Edgewater Plantation off of I-526 and leasing agents quoted him $1,600 a month in rent. “It was beautiful, that is what they sold us on- they said this is the exact unit you are going to move into,” he said.

But less than a week before move-in day, Byrd said he was told he had to move to a different unit and that his rent would be going up to $1,900 a month.

“They called me and said, ‘hey, there is a problem with that unit, they are going to switch you to a nice newer more renovated unit,’” he said.

Byrd visited the new unit to take measurements days before he was scheduled to move in. “It was just like appalling. It smelled like urine and cigarettes, soft spots on the floor. There was trash everywhere,” he said.

He jotted down a list of necessary repairs. His primary concern was floor repair for the soft spots in the hall and kitchen. The management company said repairs would be completed in two days but Byrd said the crews never came.

“I started emailing them about it and didn’t get an answer. As we were unpacking the floor collapsed and I cut my foot open,” he said.

Four weeks went by without any repairs. News 2 contacted Edgewater Plantation’s parent company, Carroll, about the promised repairs and within days the floor was repaired.

“Resident experience is a top priority at Edgewater Plantation, and we take all resident matters very seriously. We have been in the process of assessing all subfloors throughout the property and making all necessary repairs. As a result, we have enlisted a qualified contractor to evaluate what subfloors need to be replaced and are working through what needs to be done. Mr. Byrd was notified prior to moving in that this project was currently underway. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, there have been delays in receiving the materials and the materials that were proposed to repair the subflooring were inconsistent with the current plan. As a result, our team provided a temporary solution so Mr. Byrd could occupy the space until the proper flooring arrived. It is important to us to provide the best resident experience and offer full transparency. We are working with Mr. Byrd to find a solution and to quickly provide the updated subflooring that was discussed prior to move-in.”

Edgewater Plantation Management

Byrd also reported growing piles of trash from the alleged valet trash that is included in rent.

“Additionally, we recently replaced the trash compactor due to issues that were brought to our attention. Unfortunately, the pandemic has created staffing challenges for every business, but we have invested in additional resources to help ensure the property is well maintained for residents, guests and staff. We encourage our residents and staff to always place trash in the compactor instead of placing it in front of it.”

Edgewater Plantation Management

News 2’s investigation revealed Byrd is not alone. Edgewater Plantation’s parent companies, Arium Living and Carroll LLC, have racked up more than 100 complaints on the Better Business Bureau.

Both companies have earned an “F” ranking on the site.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story stated Mt. Pleasant town council voted to approve the annexation. This decision was not approved, but it was deferred.

Mount Pleasant town council deferred its vote on the annexation of the Phillips community at tonight's meeting.

This decision was reached to give the town one month to investigate the annexation. According to Mayor Will Haynie, if Charleston County approves the Phillips community's historical designation, then Mt. Pleasant may not annex it. This decision will likely be on the agenda in September.

After stopping Highway 41 from widening into the Phillips community, residents are now worrying about the annexation.

“They’ve been battling Highway 41 widening in their community for 15 years," said Jason Crowley, senior director of the Coastal Conservation League. "And now within days of getting some good news on that, they are now trying to save their identity by trying to stop this annexation.”

Crowley has been in contact with the residents of Phillips community and he says the annexation could hurt something they’ve been fighting for.

“If the annexation goes through with the town of Mount Pleasant, that would remove about 20 acres from review of any future potential development which could negatively impact the design and feel of this community," Crowley said.

The feel of the community goes back generations. The historically Black community has families owning the land all the way back in the Reconstruction Era.

The community is hoping to get on the historical district list in Charleston and be recognized nationally for its history. The community is one vote away from completing the process to become a Charleston historic district which would allow them to review any renovation plans within the area to keep the historic feel.

But annexation could ruin those plans.

“When my forefathers bought the property, they brought it from an eight and half acre lot to 35 acres," said Richard Habersham, the president of the Phillips Community Association. "And we have maintained these properties ever since 1875.”

Habersham said the association is firmly against the annexation.

“Why should one property owner hold the rest of the community hostage because you want to make a dollar,” Habersham said.

The annexation itself could pull 19 acres of land from the Phillips community for renovation.

Habersham says the renovations would hold other residents in the neighborhood “hostage,” putting a lot of red tape in front of them for simple things like water and sewer services.

The Phillips community has held off renovations from the surrounding neighborhoods for years but says that this 19 acre plot of land in the middle of the community would affect the whole neighborhood.

“Give them a chance or give the next generation a chance to develop their own property, you know like my forefathers did,” Habersham said. “Let it be a part of the community, I can’t go in Park West and change their designation. I can’t go over there and change how the property is listed. But they want to come in our community and change our community to conform to Park West.”

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — A major fire consumed multiple businesses along the 700 block of Johnnie Dodds Boulevard in Mount Pleasant early Thursday morning.

Multiple fire crews responded to Lafayette Village sometime around midnight.

Flames were seen shooting through the roof of Jean's of Mount Pleasant Bridal Shop. The fire also involved Auto Money Title Loans which is located next door. A third business was also damaged.

ABC News 4's Eli Brand was one of the first people on the scene and called 911. Dispatchers said his call was one of the first that they received regarding the fire.

The fire was large enough to produce a glow in surrounding neighborhoods.

ABC News 4 Chief Storm Tracker Meteorologist Dave Williams could see what was happening from his home.

Officials say area apartments were evacuated as a precaution. Power lines and trees in the area caught fire, officials said.

There were no reported injuries, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Neighbors were allowed to return to their homes just before 2 a.m. , according to Williams.

ABC News 4's Dean Stephens reported on the arrival of multiple first responders to the scene.

No one was inside the buildings at the time of the fire, the fire department confirmed.

ABC News 4 Producer Christian Galvano shared the following video and information shortly after the fire started. He reported being able to feel the heat from the sidewalk.

Fire engines didn't stop shooting water towards the buildings until around 2 a.m. As many as six fire trucks were still on scene at that hour.

Charleston County EMS also responded to the scene.

One Mount Pleasant firefighter on the scene was treated by EMS for a shoulder injury, according to the Mount Pleasant Fire Department. The firefighter was treated and resumed working at the scene, officials said.

Just after 6 a.m., crews began to leave the site of the blaze.

In a statement posted to social media, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie wrote, "We are thankful there were no injuries & saddened at the loss of 3 of our businesses. We appreciate the teamwork of all partner agencies who responded."

The mayor spoke to ABC News 4 around 7:20 a.m., noting that fire officials had not yet determined what caused the flames to spark.

He said he spoke to Jean earlier in the morning and noted that she was most concerned about the hundreds of wedding dresses ruined by the fire.

"Her first concern is her clients, is her customers, and their biggest day — their wedding. And she's feeling their loss more than her own. But she's that type of person," Haynie stated.

Jean told Haynie that she planned on reaching out to manufacturers to help replace the lost dresses.

The mayor said it was now time to recover and to help restore these businesses.

At 11:40 a.m., ABC News 4 flew over the site of the fire with a drone as business owners and community members began the recovery process.
