The Colleton County High School Band of Blue Marching Band is among the best in South Carolina, and two of its divisions recently medaled, coming in second place at separated competitions.
First to win was the Band of Blue Varsity Winter Guard in the 2023 Carolina Winter Ensemble Association Championships that took place April 1 at Winthrop University. Its second-place finish was in the Scholastic AAA class.
More than 80 schools, from Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee, competed against CCHS and other South Carolina high schools.
On April 15, the Band of Blue Winter Percussion team earned its silver medal at the 2023 Carolina Winter Ensemble Association Percussion Championship, which was held at Dorman High School, in Spartanburg.
In addition to placing second in the Percussion Scholastic A Class, the CCHS Winter Percussion was promoted to the A Class Division, having competed in the Novice class and winning in 2019 and 2022.
“We have a strong tradition,” said Tom Finigan, who heads the music department at the high school. It’s a tradition that goes back to the 1940s, when the then-high school traveled across the U.S., to cities such as Chicago.
Following desegregation, when the two high schools merged (with a third school based in Ruffin added in 1980), Bill Young Jr., now mayor of Walterboro came up with the band’s name. According to Finigan, who first was a member of the band under Young, and later his assistant, the name was the same as the one at Middle Tennessee State.
“However, you say Band of Blue and most people in the state think of Walterboro,” said Finigan.
Through its various stages, the Band of Blue has appeared in parades and events nationwide, including the Orange Bowl, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Tournament of Roses (in Pasadena, Calif.), and several times at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
The band, in its various makeups (Marching, Concert/Symphonic, Jazz, Winter Percussion, and Varsity Winter Guard) currently is composed of 140 students, a far cry from its first year of existence, 1973, when it totaled 18 students; at its largest it numbered 260 students.
Next on tap for CCHS and the Band of Blue will be hosting the Class 5A Division of the South Carolina Band Directors Association. CCHS will not be competing since it is in a different division.

WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCIV) — A new halfway house and treatment center coming to Walterboro is concerning those who live near the property.
Shield Ministries plans to use a vacant church campus off Barracada Road near Highway 17-A to help men enrolled in the organization's treatment and reeducation program.
But neighbors say they’re worried because a majority of the men in the program are registered sex offenders.
"We help them transition from the devastation of their past into a thriving future," said David Truluck, the executive director of Shield Ministries.
Shield Ministries said their focus is on reforming and preventing recidivism in men who have dealt with poverty, addiction, and violence.
The non-profit currently has two facilities in North Charleston and plans to open their third.
"We found this facility in Walterboro in Colleton County that was secluded, but not isolated, and would allow us to take these young men out of the environment that consistently contributed to their going back to prison," Truluck said.
In Shield Ministries' 2021 annual report, out of 60 participants, seven graduated the 18-month program.
70 percent of this year’s applicants are registered as sex offenders. Truluck said there will be between 40 to 50 men living at the Walterboro location.
Residents in the neighborhood are concerned about their children’s safety.
"How is it a good idea? Tell me how this benefits us as a county, as a community in any way, shape or form. There's no upside to this. It's not financial for us, not financial for anybody," said Nikki Nettles, a neighborhood resident.
"For them to all be in one place and to have to deal with it all in one place; I just think that's too much of a threat for the community," resident Lisa Langdale said.
Truluck said the men who have graduated the program have a zero-recidivism rate.
Truluck himself is a registered sex offender, something else that concerns residents.
"I worry. We already have a lot of people that walk up and down the road and now we're going to change the dynamics of who it is walking up and down the road, and that really worries me," Nettles said.
Dr. William Burke, the president of Southeastern Assessment, said their first obligation is public safety.
"We will be taking them to work, bringing them back to the facility. If there's any need for them to go into the town, we would take them so they would always be supervised by a ministry staff member," Truluck said.
Dr. Burke said every participant is polygraphed every six months, drug tested at random, and their telephone and internet usage is monitored daily.
If they don't follow protocol, they are kicked out of the program.
"It means that they are arrested, and they are scheduled to go before a probation board and or go before a judge to for them to determine do they go to prison or do they get another chance to back out in public," Dr. Burke said.
Dr. Burke said in order to prevent recidivism, they must provide a place for people to control their behavior.
"We don't want to be a community liability. We want to be a community asset. And we stress accountability and responsibility. And we have we make it clear that the men are going to be held to a high standard. If they do not meet that standard, they will be expelled from our program," Truluck said.
But residents don't want that happening in their backyard, near their children.
"Our plan is to stop this, but if we can't, then what do we do? We have to educate, we have to help each other," Nettles said.
Shield Ministries said they are still in the development stages, so there is no timeline as to when the facility in Walterboro will open.
A community meeting to discuss the halfway house is scheduled for Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. across from tractor supply on Bells Highway in Walterboro.

WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCSC) - Ring camera footage from a Walterboro home appears to show a dog being run over by a U.S. Postal Service driver who did not stop or slow down, a Colleton County woman says.
The dog, Yogi, survived but awaits surgery that could result in his leg being amputated. If not, a BluePearl Pet Hospital in Summerville says because of his poor quality of life, he might have to be euthanized.
“She’s been delivering our mail for over a year,” Paula Gouge, Yogi’s owner, said. “She knows my dogs. She’s pet my dogs before... And I don’t know if she might have given him treats in the past and he was running for a treat.”
BluePearl Pet Hospital says Yogi suffers from a dislocated hip, broken femur and lower spine and internal injuries. The family has been in contact with Officer Suzi Reeves with Colleton County Animal Services, who is handling the case.
“Officer Reeves told me that we did nothing wrong,” Gouge said. “We did not break any laws. We do not have to keep him on a leash.”
Matthew Breen, managing partner of Lowcountry Law, LLC, says the family can decide to sue this driver for negligence and depending on what the solicitor decides, the driver could face charges as high as a hit and run.
“Yes, they might have needed to restrain their animal,” Breen said. “But at the same time... that doesn’t give us an excuse, ‘Well, that dog doesn’t have its leash on and it’s outside the road. I can just run it over and kill it.’”
He says it’s important for pet owners to be diligent.
“You want to make sure that you protected your pet to the greatest extent that you could, and if they’re injured, that you can recover civilly against the wrongdoer who injured your pet,” Breen said.
Reeves says the driver will face at least two citations under the proper care of animals under the Colleton County Code of Ordinances. She says the driver has been identified and she claims she didn’t know she hit the dog.
“He’s only eight and a half years old,” Gouge said. “He’s not done. I just pray that he can get better and be a miracle dog and run around on three legs.”
The Walterboro Postal Service declined to make a comment because the case is under investigation. The postal service Southern Area Corporate Communications says they’re still reviewing the video and gathering additional details about the incident.

WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCSC) - Colleton County has two large industries coming around Walterboro in the near future and county officials are already thinking about how this is going to affect housing.
Pomega Energy Storage Technologies, a subsidiary of Kontrolmatik Technologies that makes lithium-ion batteries, is investing $279 million to build a facility located in the Colleton Industrial Campus near Walterboro.
“That is the largest economic investment of a company coming to this county in history,” Colleton County Councilman Scott Biering said.
This industry will bring in 575 jobs, but that’s not all. Biering says Boise Cascade Company, a leading manufacturer for building materials, will also bring in 30 additional jobs and developers have already sent in applications.
“I think there’s two developments, like maybe 100 houses per development,” Biering said. “And that’s a big deal for us.”
Mark Wysong, the president of the Colleton County Chamber of Commerce, says this will bring greater prosperity to the city of Walterboro.
“Right now, that’s one of the biggest challenges that we have in Colleton County is affordable housing,” Wysong said.
Wysong says these industry jobs will increase the median income within the county, improving the housing market overall. Biering says there are roughly 9,000 people that leave every day to go work in neighboring counties and they want to try to keep those people a little closer to home.
“There’s not been a whole lot of homes and developers in this area for a long time,” Biering said. “So, this is something new to us to have this amount of interest.”
Wysong says he knows locals will want to keep their small town the way it is, but no one should have to worry about losing it.
“While retaining the small-town feel, I think these new developments coming in will adopt that look and feel, so you retain this really small neighborhood community,” Wysong said.
Biering says these housing developments are only in the planning stages, and nothing has been approved so far.
“We like to live, work and play here,” Biering said. “We’d like to keep it closer to the center. So, I think the housing will be a big plus in that direction.”
Biering says Pomega is hopefully expected to break ground in 2024.

SOUTH CAROLINA (WCIV) — It’s amazing. It was already 15 years ago, I did a story on an aspiring singer/songwriter leaving for Nashville after his time as a Clemson Tigers long snapper. It worked out pretty well for that guy- Lee Brice.
This week, we do the same story. A former Clemson long snapper, leaving to follow his music dreams in Nashville. Walterboro’s Jim Brown.
If passion could be purveyed, Jim Brown has always found a way to do it.
Walterboro's Jim Brown follows in Lee Brice's footsteps, gunning for a music career. (WCIV)
“I sing vocally very gritty and aggressive," said the Pinewood Prep grad.
If purpose and passion meet, Jim Brown will find a way to connect them. In his fifth year at Clemson, he was awarded a scholarship by Dabo Swinney.
The Walterboro native has a deeply rooted passion, and now, is his time to shine.
“I taught myself how to play guitar in HS after an ACL injury, bedridden for two weeks so I picked up a guitar and learned to play. When football was over, just latched on to it— all music. Singing vocals, piano, music theory, songwriting- started diving as deep as I could and it sort of got me to here," he said.
Construction consultant is the title that pays the bills for now. But Jim Brown is ready for that chord progression to take the next step. Similar to going from walk-on to scholarship player.
“I’m not trying to be the next Chris Stapleton, but I want to make music that hopefully relates to people on some level," Brown said.
Music, can always take you home. His first single is doing just that.
“The Devil and the Gavel” is his ode to the Murdaugh murders saga in his hometown of Walterboro.
“In Charleston I played a lot of gigs, covers around town and on weekends, Thursday, Friday, Saturday at Edisto Beach and Walterboro. Now, more songwriting. At the end of the day, what I want to do is release music that I have, keep playing. I know its something I’m fortunate to have, and kind of let people know this is my thing," Brown said.
He doesn’t know Lee Brice. He’s never met him. But he hopes his passion will help him follow the same path.
