I keep trying to stay upbeat. Remember that wonderful Shirley Temple song, "Be Optimistic" from the 1930's movie "Little Miss Broadway"? I shoot for that only without the dimples and curly hair. Some days that quest seems to get a tailwind behind it, like this little gust.
Editor's Note: This summer, LowCountry Habitat for Humanity's ReStore will celebrate 10 years in operation as the Beaufort area's "store that builds houses." LowCountry Habitat, the northern Beaufort County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, was founded here in 1990. The local Restore started officially in 2004. To celebrate this 10th anniversary, the Restore will hold an "Upcycled Art Auction" Saturday, August 23, at the Shed, 809 Paris Avenue in Port Royal. This is the site of the ReStore's former location. As a run-up to this event, Lowcountry Weekly will feature four articles – one per month – about different aspects of the ReStore. This first article explores the history of the local ReStore.
When student art is chosen for the cover of a book, it's worth celebrating. Furthermore, when a local school is chosen as a model for study in colleges nationwide, it's time for a community to be proud. Lady's Island Elementary School (LIES) is that school and they are celebrating being on the cover of a just released college text on arts integration. The cover shows student art photographed by Eric Smith of Captured Moments in Beaufort.

Let's cut to the chase. Right now you're wondering, "So how's the spaghetti at the Spaghetti Club?" It's the obvious question. The short answer is assolutamente fantastico, un lavoro d'amore. And as my colleagues noted many, many times during this meal, both the meatballs and the Alfredo Sauce are "to die for." To. Die. For. But we'll get to that.
The first thing you notice as you walk into the Spaghetti Club is the gorgeous pine bar and the rustic mass that frames it. This time-worn collection of brick, board and plank looks as if it might have once served in some ancient and storied Lowcountry watering hole – a speakeasy, perhaps – rescued from the wrecking ball to be pieced back together on this genteel corner of Habersham.
Santiago Sosa and Erin Dailey prepare to bring Shakespeare's ultimate power couple to the stage at USCB. By Margaret Evans, Editor
On April 23rd Shakespeare Rep will celebrate the Bard's 450th birthday with a new production of Macbeth at the USCB Center for the Arts. We recently caught up with Santiago Sosa and Erin Dailey – Macbeth and Lady Macbeth – to talk about the production . . . among other things.
It's Friday morning and deadline day for this sprawling thing I euphemistically call my column. It's also the second day of spring – March 21st – and all of creation has risen to the occasion. Outside my window, the "we need you, we need you" bird has returned to seduce me from my grim task. (My old pal Jim Tatum tells me that's the cry of the Carolina wren, and I have no reason to doubt him.)
