Charleston and Greenville were listed among 52 places around the world as places to visit in 2023 by The New York Times.

Greenville was listed as 14th, Charleston 32. They were two of 10 U.S. locales on the list.

First place was London, which The Times said offers something for everyone as it undergoes a transition citing new shopping, entertainment and history opportunities and of course the monarchy itself with the coronation of King Charles III.

Of Greenville, lifestyle journalist and podcaster Ari Bendersky wrote, “Set in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville has established itself on the culinary scene.

”The quaint city of about 70,000 has more than 200 restaurants — 85 percent of which are local,” he wrote.

He said people might visit Greenville for outdoor adventure, but they’ll leave after experiencing foods from around the world, including the second location of Charleston’s Lewis Barbecue; Mr. Crisp for seafood, Keipi for Georgian khachapuri and ancient wines; Aryana for Afghani and Califas for Mexican birria tacos.

He quoted Sid Evans, the editor in chief of Southern Living, as saying “The food here is adventurous, and the chefs have embraced the global influences shaping the modern South.”

Charleston was added to the list due to opening of the $100 million International African American Museum.

“Charleston’s brutal history of slavery can be overshadowed by a romanticized portrait of a city with charm, award-winning restaurants and plantation gardens,” wrote Lauren Matison, a freelance writer whose work appears in numerous national travel magazines.

The museum will will help “display the city’s complicated past.”

The museum was built on what was Gadsden’s Wharf, where an estimated 30,000 African captives landed.

“The sleek, single-story building floats atop 18 pillars clad in tabby, a kind of concrete made from oyster shells, and houses a genealogy center, a social justice action lab and 10 exhibit galleries that include stories of slavery and the Great Migration,“ she wrote. “A public outdoor space offers an African Ancestors Memorial Garden featuring indigenous plants like Lowcountry sweet grass and Canary Island palm trees.”

Both cities have made dozens of best of lists over the years, including Conde Nast’s 10 best small cities in the United States.

With London as No .1, the Times named its top 10 places to visit this year as Morioko, Japan; Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park in Arizona; Kilmartin Glen in Scotland; Auckland in New Zealand; Palm Springs, California; Kangaroo Island in Australia; Vjosa River in Albania; Accra in Ghana; and Tromso, Norway.

Other United States destinations include Tucson, Arizona; the Alaska Railroad; Louisville, Kentucky; Macon, Georgia; Grand Junction, Colorado; American Prairie in Montana; New Haven, Connecticut; and the Black Hills in South Dakota.

3 UFO sightings reported across the Lowcountry last fall

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Three residents in various areas across the Lowcountry reported UFO sightings to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) last fall.

The first was reported off Edisto Island in October – the witness described seeing a light that appeared above Botany Bay during the day on October 15.

“Taking pictures at Botany Bay on South Carolina coast we noticed a light which appeared in some photos but not all of the same scene,” the witness reported. “Light appeared to be moving in live pictures and then disappears.”

Two photographs were provided which appear to show a teal-in-color spec of light high above the beach.

Another sighting was reported in Summerville just a week before the Thanksgiving holiday. “While sitting out by the fire just after 8 PM, I looked up to see two glowing orange lights flying over our house. There were three of us who saw them, and we all agreed that they were distinctly orange in color,” the witness described in their report to the NUFORC.

According to the witness, the lights appeared to be flying low but quickly.

“The first ones didn’t seem to blink or flicker. There were no aerial navigation lights either- red or green or white. They did not bob or weave. There was no noise associated with them,” the witness wrote.

The witness said there were airplanes flying in other directions with sound associated with the flyovers. But these were different.

“The first two flew parallel to one another and then seemed to curve slightly toward the south. They were coming from the west and flying towards the east. We then looked up and coming over the crest of the house were three more of these flying lights,” the witness reported.

The witness continued, “They were flying roughly in a triangle, and again they were glowing orange with a steady light. As they disappeared behind the pine tree boughs … another one came over the house.”

A third sighting took place over Holly Hill just a day later. It was described as a diamond-shaped figure that hovered above one area and made “sudden upward jerks” at times.

“I was leaving home to go to my mother in laws approx. 9:00 p.m. on November 19, 2022. It was dark of course. Sky appeared to be clear with only stars visible. When I got to the end of my road at the stop sign, I noticed this diamond shape object with flashing lights just hoovering- it had lights of red and blue flashing then green would flash at different times,” the witness wrote.

The witness told the NUFORC that the object did not appear to be a plane because it just didn’t change positions or seem to be moving closer or further away.

“This diamond shape object was just hoovering after watching it for approx. 10 minutes; it had me kinda shooken [SIC] up so I left to proceed to my mother in laws … I tried to catch video and images. But nothing compares to the naked eye.”

These accounts were reported to the National UFO Reporting Center, which was founded in 1974 by UFO investigator Robert J. Gribble. The center’s primary purpose, according to the center’s website, is to receive, record, corroborate and document reports from individuals who have been witness to unusual, possibly UFO-related events.

The center has processed over 150,000 reports since it was established.

Charleston Water System ‘only a few steps away from a catastrophe’

A “perfect storm” of frigid temperatures and the holidays has caused a water crisis in the Lowcountry, according to officials with the Charleston Water System.CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A “perfect storm” of frigid temperatures and the holidays has caused a water crisis in the Lowcountry, according to officials with the Charleston Water System.“We are absolutely still in a crisis, and frankly only a few steps away from a catastrophe that would be a boil water notice,” Charleston Water System sp...

A “perfect storm” of frigid temperatures and the holidays has caused a water crisis in the Lowcountry, according to officials with the Charleston Water System.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A “perfect storm” of frigid temperatures and the holidays has caused a water crisis in the Lowcountry, according to officials with the Charleston Water System.

“We are absolutely still in a crisis, and frankly only a few steps away from a catastrophe that would be a boil water notice,” Charleston Water System spokesperson Mike Saia said.

Currently, 100 million gallons of water a day are being used in the Lowcountry, while normally they use about 30 to 45 million gallons. That’s 50 to 60 million gallons of water being spilled mostly due to leaking pipes, broken irrigation systems and other effected systems.

Saia said that if the number gets to 105 or 110 million gallons of use, that will exceed the plant’s ability to treat the water adequately and they would need to issue a boil water notice.

Saia said many people in the Lowcountry have not insulated their pipes and have not been dripping their pipes overnight. With the holidays, many are away from their homes and businesses. If residents have an issue, plumbers are unavailable.

Antonio Inzillo is one of the many Lowcountry families dealing with burst pipes this week. On Christmas morning, he noticed water spraying all over the side of his Goose Creek home. He said he felt helpless, especially because he has a three-year-old.

Inzillo has been calling plumbers for 24 hours, but no one has answered the phone. With research and the help of friends and neighbors, he’s been trying to fix it on his own.

“We have a 3-year-old. I don’t want to make him suffer on Christmas. I don’t want to suffer on Christmas, I’m sure you don’t. I guess the most helpless thing is not having an answer and not knowing what to do,” Inzillo said.

One of the biggest issues they’re seeing right now is broken irrigation systems. If you have an irrigation system in your yard, this is the time to disconnect it from your water supply even if you do not have a leak.

Saia said customers are the cause and solution of the current situation. He says thousands upon thousands of lines have busted under people’s homes. The water system is dealing with a huge backlog and 200 to 400 calls a day. But he says that number is actually astronomically higher because phone lines are jammed.

“We urge everyone to check your home, check a business or a building that you may not have been to in a while,” Saia said. “Check for a water leak, running water under your home. You often can hear it in the pipes in the building, and if you find it, turn that water off using your shutoff valve, which is typically located in a hose bibb closest to your water meter. If you can’t do that, open the lid on the water meter, there’s a little nut in there, a quarter turn on that will turn it off. If you can’t do either of those, the most important thing to do at that point is to call us.”

Right now, the water is safe, according to Saia.

“We’re hoping not to get to boil water notice,” Saia said. “But that has major implications in your home, restaurants, hotels. It would require about three, maybe three and a half days of boiling water for use of doing dishes or brushing your teeth or cooking.”

Customers need to solve their leaks in the next two or three days because the warmer temperatures could bring additional water main breaks, according to Saia.

William & Mary Tribe (8-10) vs. College of Charleston Cougars (18-1)

The Line: College of Charleston Cougars -16.5 / William & Mary Tribe +16.5; Over/Under: +144.5 (Get latest betting odds)

The William & Mary Tribe and the Charleston Cougars meet in college basketball action from the TD Arena on Monday night.

The William & Mary Tribe will try to build on a 69-67 win over UNC-Wilmington in their last matchup. Anders Nelson leads the Tribe in scoring and assists with 11.4 PPG and 4.7 APG while Gabe Dorsey has 10.6 PPG. Ben Wight has 10.4 PPG with 4.7 RPG while Noah Collier has 9.2 PPG as well as a team-high 8.5 RPG to lead the Tribe in rebounding up to this point in the season. As a team, William & Mary is averaging 69.1 PPG on 43.4% shooting from the field, 36.2% from three and 67.1% from the foul line this season.

The Charleston Cougars will look to build on their 78-60 win over Elon last time out. Dalton Bolon leads the Cougars in scoring with 13.5 PPG and Ryan Larson has 11.2 PPG while also posting a team-high 4.1 APG to lead the Cougars in the assist department while Reyne Smith has 10.7 PPG. Ante Brzovic has 10.7 PPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for the Cougars this year while Jaylon Scott also leads Charleston on the glass with 5.2 RPG so far this season. As a team, Charleston is averaging 80.2 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field, 32.9% from three and 74.3% from the foul line this season.

William & Mary is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. Charleston is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss while the under is 9-0 in their last 9 home games.

I get the case to be made for William & Mary here as this is still a big number for conference play, but I have to roll with Charleston here. The Cougars have simply been the better team overall and have been one of the elite teams in the CAA for some time now. I just see no reason to step in front of Charleston up to this point so give me the Cougars big here.

Charleston port’s rail yard, once chugging along, now moving at high speed

A Port of Charleston rail yard that’s been on the drawing board for more than a decade is suddenly on a tight construction schedule.The State Ports Authority this week approved a slew of contracts totaling nearly $137 million with an eye toward getting a new train hub serving its container terminals open a little over two years from now.The newest deals represent the biggest step to date toward wrapping up the project, officially known as the “Navy Base Intermodal Facility.”“This is a really excit...

A Port of Charleston rail yard that’s been on the drawing board for more than a decade is suddenly on a tight construction schedule.

The State Ports Authority this week approved a slew of contracts totaling nearly $137 million with an eye toward getting a new train hub serving its container terminals open a little over two years from now.

The newest deals represent the biggest step to date toward wrapping up the project, officially known as the “Navy Base Intermodal Facility.”

“This is a really exciting day for us as we embark on a project that handles about 25 percent of our business and will give us the ability to increase that marketshare,” said Barbara Melvin, the SPA’s president and CEO.

State lawmakers budgeted $400 million over the past two years to pay for completion of the rail yard, which had made steady — but slow — progress under previous owner Palmetto Railways, a division of the S.C. Commerce Department. Melvin has said a near-dock rail yard, which Savannah and other competing ports already have, is the last key asset needed to keep Charleston among the nation’s busiest commercial waterfronts.

With the funding now in hand, the SPA is under the gun to deliver the rail yard, where miles-long trains operated by Norfolk Southern and CSX Corp. will load and unload cargo containers.

“When the state allocated the $400 million for this project there was an expectation that, even though we knew it was a tight time frame, that we could handle our first train in July of 2025,” Melvin said, adding the latest contracts are an example of the SPA “working very diligently” to meet that deadline.

The biggest chunk of money from the deals approved this week — about $119.7 million — will go to Landmark Construction for site development on the former Navy base. The work will include construction of utilities, a storm water drainage system, paving, signage and rail-mounted gantry crane foundations.

North Charleston-based Landmark, the lowest of three bidders, also will build 11 rail tracks within the property where cargo will be processed. Another four arrival and departure tracks the company will install will provide access at the northern and southern ends of the yard.

In addition to the Landmark contracts, the SPA’s board approved a half-dozen deals totaling nearly $17.3 million:

The flurry of contracts follow nearly $47 million the SPA’s board agreed to spend in September for six specialty cranes made by an Austria company that will lift containers on and off railcars.

The SPA has also spent about $10 million to settle lawsuits over land acquisition and condemnation issues related to property it needed for the project.

Trains carry about one-fourth of the 2.8 million 20-foot containers that move through Charleston’s port each year, and the SPA wants to boost that number to reduce truck traffic. Part of that effort will include a barge system that will move containers by water from the Wando Welch Terminal in Mount Pleasant to the Leatherman Terminal, where they will be put on trains at the new rail yard. The General Assembly has set aside $150 million for that project.
