  • School district former CFO to appear in courtSchool district former CFO to appear in court

    The former chief financial officer at the Berkeley County School District will be in court Tuesday. Brantley Denmark Thomas, III will be in court for what’s called a change of plea hearing at 11:00 AM in Charleston. Judge David C Norton will preside. He faces federal charges, including fraud and embezzlement. Officials say 61-year-old Thomas took more than $800,000. Prosecutors say Thomas overpaid vendors and then took the refunds and used them for personal expenses. Thomas was fired in February 2017 during an investigation of the school district’s finances. Thomas’ lawyer, Matthew Hubbell, said Thursday his client has accepted responsibility and is cooperating with authorities.

  • After more than 40 years, Navy hero’s headstone finally honors his bravery in WWIIAfter more than 40 years, Navy hero’s headstone finally honors his bravery in WWII

    BEAUFORT, Sc. (WSAV) – The Beaufort National Cemetery is a final resting place for about 20,000 soldiers who fought for our country– one being William Pinckney, whose headstone has never really reflected his sacrifice, until today. “He really never mentioned anything about his medals or awards or anything like that,” said Pinckney’s great nephew, William Mulligan. Everyone who knew him remembers him as a humble man. The Beaufort native joined the United States Navy in 1938. “African Americans in the 1930’s and 40’s, the first thing that they were assigned was to be a cook. So he was a cook aboard the USS Enterprise,” said Beaufort Historian and USCB professor, Larry Rowland. But no matter their assigned job, every sailor has a battle station. “He could be a cook during the day, but he could be a gunner during battle,” said Rowland, “His battle station was in the ammunition handling room of the USS Enterprise.” It was October 26, 1942 during the Battle of Guadalcanal, “the ship took several bomb hits. One of the bombs penetrated the deck and blew up in the ammunition handling room,” Rowland said. Of the 6 men in the room, only Pinckney and one other, Petty Officer Bagwell, survived the blast. “Petty Officer Bagwell tried to climb up the ladder out of the whole ammunition holding room, and the latter was on fire and he fell back and passed out,” Rowland said, “Well Bill Pinckney was the only other sailor alive down there and he picked up Petty Officer Bagwell, put him on his shoulders, climbed a burning ladder delivered him to go to the medical station on the hanger deck of the ship, and then went down, back in to get the other sailors out of there.” Pinckney was awarded the Navy Cross, the second highest recognition to the Medal of Honor. “He was only the second African-American in Navy history to receive that award,” Rowland said, “And he was only one of four African-Americans in all of World War II to win the Navy Cross.” But while working on a book, Rowland visited Pinckney’s grave at the Beaufort National Cemetery and noticed the honor was not on his headston.e “It just said William B. Pinckney with the correct dates and ‘Purple Heart,’ Rowland said. So he contacted the cemetery’s superintendent, Sonny Peppers, and within two week, “Navy Cross” was added. “It’s an honor to know that the Beaufort community sought to honor him by placing his award on his headstone,” Mulligan said, as he stood with another one of Pinckney’s great nephews and a neice. Neither Rowland nor Peppers know why the award wasn’t originally put on the headstone, Rowland says that’s a question that had to be answered in 1976. The Beaufort Rotary Club is holding an official ceremony for the community to honor Pinckney on February 10th at 11 a.m. at the Beaufort National Cemetery. When the humble Pinckney was asked about his service, “he frequently said, ‘Oh I was proud to serve,” Rowland said. Today, “Proud to Serve” is the motto for the USS William Pinckney guided missle cruiser in the United States Navy, currently deploying in the Pacific Ocean.

    HOLLYWOOD, S.C. (WCBD) – American Red Cross disaster-trained volunteers are assisting a family whose home, located on Ernestine Road, was damaged by a fire this morning. The Saint Paul Fire Department responded to the blaze. The Red Cross is helping three adults and five children by providing financial assistance for food, clothing, lodging and other essentials, and comfort kits containing personal hygiene items. We are now entering the coldest months of the season, which means the threat of home fire deaths is still very real. When heating your home, please remember that space heaters need just that: space. Be sure they are three feet away from anything that can burn: furniture, bedding carpets, rugs, and curtains. Children and pets should be kept away so they do not get burned. Make sure the space heater is off and unplugged before leaving a room or falling asleep. It is important to plug the space heater directly into an outlet and not an extension cord. Before you plug it in, inspect the power cord before each use. If the cord is worn, broken or loose have the appliance professionally repaired or replace it.

Scientists are recruiting African-Americans to test vegan versions of the food that sprang from Sunday church gatherings after slavery was abolished. Subjects will be assigned into two groups. One will eat a healthy take on soul food that includes animal products like meat and dairy. Another group will be assigned a plant-based diet.

    CHARLESTON, S.C.

His passion, his blood, sweat, and tears, and his ultimate sacrifice are forever an integral part of our country’s history. He taught us about the strength to love in the face of hate, saying ‘darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.’ He showed us resilience in the face of adversity and injustice by working every single day for equality and unity. He used his faith to remain hopeful that one day, children of color would be able to achieve their dreams. Because of Dr. King’s unending quest for justice, our American family is better off. Today, nearly 50 years after his death, we should continue to live out his legacy every single day. At gatherings across the nation Monday, activists, residents, and teachers are honoring the late civil rights leader ahead of the 50th anniversary of his assassination in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that jury foreman Gerald Truesdale provides that detail. He’s the first panel member to discuss the decision sentencing Roof to death for the 2015 Emanuel AME Church murders. Truesdale says he noticed Roof smirk after being cursed by a survivor of the slaughter. He noted Roof showed no remorse and appeared mentally challenged after the woman hearing her son plead for life yet be killed anyway, then smearing blood on herself and playing dead. Truesdale says he developed a blank stare that allowed him to watch Roof and witnesses without giving away his emotions. ___ Information from: The Post and Courier, http://www.postandcourier.com

    South Carolina lawmakers have a decision to make: Is the electric chair an appropriate method of execution, or is it antiquated and barbaric? A bill discussed Tuesday by state Sen. William Timmons, R-Greenville, would allow the state to electrocute death row inmates if lethal injection drugs remain unavailable, even if the inmate chooses lethal injection. Plagued by gruesome, botched executions since its inception in the late 1800s, critics say it should be abandoned as cruel and unusual.

  • Black officials uneasy about plaque for Calhoun monumentBlack officials uneasy about plaque for Calhoun monument

    CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Black members of Charleston’s city council say they’re unlikely to support a new plaque for the John C. Calhoun monument even though it’s supposed to add context about the politician’s support for slavery. Council member Robert Mitchell says there are no words that can change his feelings about Calhoun, a vice president and South Carolina native. Mayor John Tecklenburg wants to confront the racism in the city’s past by adding more historical context to Confederate monuments. The state’s Heritage Act forbids the removal or relocation of any Confederate memorials without a two-thirds vote of the Legislature. Council member William Dudley Gregorie says the city should challenge the Heritage Act. The council has deferred proposed wording for the plaque until its next meeting. ___ Information from: The Post and Courier, http://www.postandcourier.com

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — It’s just two months away from filing, and South Carolina has not passed a law to allow candidates for lieutenant governor and governor will run on the same ticket. The Senate passed a bill last year establishing the rules called for in a 2012 constitutional amendment that voters approved. But the House version includes a proposal to raise pay for other statewide officials and judges. A conference committee meeting scheduled for last week was canceled abruptly. Republican Sen. Chip Campsen of Isle of Palms tells The Post and Courier of Charleston that it’s absurd the House is holding the bill hostage for pay raises. Republican Rep. Murrell Smith of Sumter says if lawmakers are going to give the lieutenant governor a raise, they should review all officeholders’ salaries. ___ Information from: The Post and Courier, http://www.postandcourier.com
