The Bank of South Carolina Corporation also announced a new future banking office at 1730 Maybank Highway on James Island. The bank will occupy an existing building, which will undergo renovation next year, and anticipates opening in the second quarter of 2023.
Fleetwood S. Hassell, President of the Bank of South Carolina, stated, "We are encouraged with our earnings to-date despite relatively low loan demand. Nonetheless, considerable contributions provided by our mortgage operation have helped to offset the impact of compressed lending margins. We have processed all forgiveness requests related to round one of the PPP program, and we are actively assisting clients with round two. The bank remains well capitalized by regulatory measures, and we'll continue to manage our expenses closely.
As we approach the second anniversary of the opening of our North Charleston office, which continues to grow and prosper, we are pleased to announce further growth within our market. This new office on James Island will not only allow us to better serve our existing clients on James Island and the surrounding islands, but it affords us the opportunity to introduce our kind of banking to new clients as well. We look forward to the future opening of this office and to finishing out another successful year."

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The James Island Yacht Club was founded in 1898. But more than 100 years later, the by-laws regarding its male-only policy have yet to change.
According to a statement from the James Island Yacht Club, the female spouses of the members have become more “involved and are an integral part of the Club,” but they are not considered members.
“The James Island Yacht Club is a family-focused social organization run by its membership as outlined by the Club by-laws. Potential new members of our Club must be sponsored by a current resident member. Our Club was founded in 1898 as a male-only organization and over time females have become more and more involved and are an integral part of the Club. Females of the Club have full access and use of all JIYC facilities and participation in all social activities.”
Females are only offered access to the Club facilities and able to participate in social activities if their male significant other is a member.
In 2020, the members of the club voted to potentially change the club by-laws to make women full members. But when the men voted, it did not pass.
“While this motion was thoroughly debated it did not garner the necessary % of votes required to change the Club by-laws. The by-laws govern our Club and changing them is the only way to change our membership practices. Proposals to change the Club by-laws are brought up from time to time, often taking multiple attempts to garner sufficient membership support for implementation.”
The Chair for the City of Charleston Commission on Women Jennet Robinson Alterman calls this discrimination.
“It’s discrimination, plain and simply,” Robinson Alterman said. “And although it is legal discrimination because it’s a private club and they’re pretty much allowed to do what they want to, just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s right.”
The CEO of South Carolina Women and Leadership Barbara Rackes says she is surprised to learn there are still clubs in South Carolina with these types of laws.
“What do you think about your daughters,” Rackes asked. “Are you going to tell her that in order for her to be a member she has to be married? Do you really want you daughter to be precluded from joining the club you like so much?”
As the by-laws of the club currently stand, no women will be able to vote on this matter until the men-only members vote to include them.

JAMES ISLAND — Authorities have arrested a man who barricaded himself inside a Briarfield Avenue home, accusing him of attacking his wife and then detonating a Molotov cocktail near her and sheriff’s deputies.
The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jonathan Andrew Hill, 36, on Oct. 8 and charged him with four felonies.
Hill was charged with two counts of possession of an explosive device and one count of intentionally causing an explosion in an attempt to injure people or a building. He was also charged with first-degree domestic violence.
Hill was acting manic and throwing items in his house at 4 a.m. Oct. 8 and subsequently got into a verbal dispute with his spouse, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Hill pushed his spouse and stomped on her face and chest. He then hit her several times with a belt, ultimately strangling her with it, the affidavit said. The victim was able to run outside the house and seek help, it said.
If convicted of first-degree domestic violence, Hill could face up to 10 years in prison, according to the S.C. Code of Laws.
Deputies went to the James Island home at about 7 a.m. in response to reports Hill was violent toward his spouse. Deputies met the spouse outside the home when they arrived.
Hill had barricaded himself in the house, according to another arrest warrant affidavit. Moments after their arrival, Hill opened the front door and threw a flaming incendiary device, often referred to as a Molotov cocktail, in the direction of the spouse and deputies, the affidavit said.
The device exploded on the driveway near the deputies, the affidavit said. No one was injured, said Capt. Roger Antonio, sheriff’s spokesman.
Hill then escaped through the house’s back door. Deputies later searched the home and found two additional cocktails manufactured inside the residence, the affidavit said.
If convicted of intentionally causing the explosion to cause injury, Hill could face up to 25 years in prison.
Hill appeared for a bond hearing Oct. 9. He was denied bail on all charges. He is currently being held at the Charleston County jail.
Charleston and North Charleston were among the top 10 cities in the state with the highest number of people contacting the National Domestic Violence Hotline during 2020, according to the S.C. Attorney General’s Office.

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The Barrel on Folly Road is a mostly open-air space that often hosts live music, events, food trucks, and guests and their dogs.
The city of Charleston’s Director of Livability and Tourism Dan Riccio says in June the city started receiving complaints and concerns from nearby residents about guests of The Barrel parking in their neighborhood and along the roads.
He says city officials inspected the business and issued two citations on June 25. One was from the Fire Marshal for over occupancy and the other from zoning for not meeting parking requirements to accommodate all guests. Riccio says The Barrel’s occupancy exceeded 100 people, with the requirement for the business set at only 49.
Legally right now there’s only 16 parking spaces to accommodate that he says.
Riccio says even though it is an outdoor space they still have an occupancy load. He says they have never been approved for the outdoor area through the zoning department.
Riccio says they are working with the owner and zoning officials to develop a plan to bring the business into compliance with zoning and occupancy requirements and legally accommodate guests.
He says this is a common concern and process they get from the public on a regular basis.
Zach Barrack says he’s been coming to The Barrel for the past few years. He says he usually parks down the road behind The Barrel where no houses are or parks at a friend’s house and walks. He says he’s never had a resident complain to him.
He says he can’t wait for The Barrel to open back up.
“I’m definitely confident in their abilities. They seem to have a good plan in place from what I’ve heard, so I’m definitely confident,” Barrack said. “I mean, there’s no way the city can shut down a place that’s not only a great place for the humans, but a great place for the dogs. And especially with it being open air with COVID and everything going on.”
Riccio says another court hearing will be in two weeks.
Chad Reynolds, the owner of The Barrel, released the following statement:
As far as occupancy goes, I am working to comply with what the City is requiring in order to increase my occupancy. The Certificate of Occupancy from 2013 states that it is only 49, including the yard. I questioned that last part in a meeting with Zoning in late 2019 and was told that they didn’t have the same requirements for outdoor patron use areas back in 2013 when my plans were approved. Regardless, I’ve hired a design professional who is working with me on a plan that will create more parking spaces on my property thus decreasing my yard space, but also increasing my occupancy. We just have to find that balance. But yet I worry that, given how badly my neighbors behind me seemingly want The Barrel gone, I might be fighting an extremely difficult battle as they have linked up with some folks with a lot of pull in our community. I hope this isn’t the case, but it is this fear that is causing me to lose sleep at night.
To the insufficient parking citation, for 6+ years my patrons parked in the right-of-way down Battery Island Dr. and along Folly Road with no issues. At least none that I was made aware of. But a unilateral decision was made many months ago to completely surround my business with 17 No Parking signs. Starting at the Folly Boat and going around the corner pretty far down Battery Island Dr. But rather than fight this action, I am willing to sacrifice valuable yard space in order to hopefully make everyone happy. I hope to have a site plan submitted to the City by Friday.”
