FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - The official start to summer is just around the corner and as the temperatures rise, so do the number of crowds at local beaches. So, to help keep our beaches clean, one College of Charleston graduate student is at the forefront of a global initiative to clean select beaches in honor of World Ocean Day.
Cheyenne Cunningham realized last year that there weren’t any United Nations registered world ocean day events in either of the Carolinas. So, she decided to create her own.
Myrtle Beach, Folly Beach, Maui, and the Galapagos islands are the four locations where Cunningham has organized beach clean ups. Wednesday at Folly Beach, 20 participating organizations and about 150 people are expected to clean up the beach. They’ll be focused on four centralized locations that require the most attention.
Cunningham says although Folly Beach is clean, on weekends and holidays the trash can pile up and a few of the reasons are because of overflow and crowds.
“We’re going to be looking at the roadsides, we’re going to be looking at the boat launch, and we’re going to be looking along the public beach access and the public easements where sometimes it’s hard to keep the litter under control,” Cunningham says.
The goal of this initiative is for people to be aware of how they handle the environment and to respect the coastal ecosystem.
Beth Autlav has grown up going to Folly Beach, she says she’s noticed over the years with more and more people traveling here the trash negatively impacts the wildlife.
“Without our oceans, we really aren’t going to do well, are we? A lot of the beach animals come up. Like right now it’s sea turtle season and when they are in the ocean a plastic bag will look like jellyfish, so a lot of these animals are getting torn up by that,” Autlav says.
The cleanup at Myrtle Beach will start at the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The Folly Beach cleanup will start at the Tides Hotel from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Construction on new Folly Pier still on schedule, projected to open spring 2023

FOLLY BEACH — Fishermen and beach lovers will have to wait at least one more year before they can soak up the views and make record catches from the new Folly Beach Pier.
The replacement project that started in Oct. 2020 is expected to wrap up next spring. Right now the work is on schedule, and county park officials are crossing their fingers in hopes that no unforeseen circumstances arise.
After nearly two decades of operation, the iconic pier closed right before construction on the new piece began because of heavy damage from shipworms. The effort to replace the pier is expected to take 28 months and cost $14 million.
The new pier will look similar to the last one with fishing stations and an architectural diamond at the end. But improvements will include unobstructed views of the ocean, more covered fishing areas and better pedestrian access.
The structure is being built with cement pilings that are stronger, resistant to marine worms and expected to last more than 60 years.
Crews are currently working to construct the new walkway, said Bruce Wright, the pier replacement project manager. Substructure for the end-of-pier diamond head is complete, and the gazebo is being built there.
“The gazebo is the big thing that they’re working on, finishing up on that,” Wright said.
The diamond head will be close to completion once the gazebo is done, except for the addition of electricity and lights.
Parking at the pier is still at half-capacity. Part of the lot is being used as a staging area to hold the contractors’ equipment and supplies. The full parking lot probably won’t reopen until the last part of the replacement project is done, according to Wright.
“We’re just hoping that we have good weather and nothing unexpected or unanticipated (happens) during the remaining construction of driving the piles and doing the construction of the walkway,” Wright said.
If things go as planned, the pier should be ready for the spring 2023 opening.
The first part of the structure reopened to visitors about a year ago, and the Pier 101 Restaurant recently began serving customers again.
While work continues, nostalgia lovers can take advantage of the opportunity to claim a piece of the old pier.
Charleston County is selling slices of the pier’s pilings for $75 each, with proceeds benefiting the parks foundation. The pieces are cylindrical slabs, or cross sections, of the pile. Each piece will vary in diameter and be less than 10 inches thick. Many of them will include distinctive patterns from marine borers.
The Park and Recreation Commission has sold 1,500 pieces of the pier so far. Because of the limited quantity, the initial batches were offered to those who had completed an online interest form, said Sarah Reynolds, spokeswoman for Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission.
Only 5,000 total pieces will be created. Since each one is handcrafted, production will take time. The next batch is anticipated to be completed in the coming weeks, and will be available for purchase to the general public at that time, Reynolds said.
Those who are interested in collecting a piece of the old pier’s pilings should follow the PRC’s social media accounts or join its email list to learn when the pieces will be ready for sale.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — The Fourth of July is expected to be a busy time for popular beach communities in the Lowcountry!
Visitors from near and far are expected to travel to areas like Folly Beach, Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island to soak up the sun, relax in the sand and take in the holiday's festivities.
Below you can find special information on the three areas for Independence Day Weekend, as well as links to other helpful tips for visiting the beach this summer!
A fireworks display is being planned by the Folly Association of Business for Monday, July 4.
The show will begin at sundown and should be visible from anywhere in the community.
The pyrotechnics will be launched from 3rd Block West, with the parking and beach areas here closed from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.
Visitors of all ages are invited to attend.
The Folly Association of Business will conduct a beach sweep right after the display, as well as the following morning, to clean up any debris or trash from the event.
A golf cart parade will take place on Isle of Palms at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 4, with staging of the carts scheduled for 9 a.m. at 4th Avenue and Charleston Boulevard.
Golf cart operators are reminded that they must have valid driver's license, a permit from the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles and proof of insurance. Carts may be operated along a secondary highway or street within four miles of wherever the vehicle is registered, or from the ingress/regress of a gated community where the cart is registered. Golf carts may only be operated during daylight hours.
The City of Isle of Palms has a fireworks show planned for 9 p.m. that same night in the Front Beach area.
The show, sponsored by the city, will result in the closure of the beach between 21st Avenue to 13th Avenue at Sea Cabins starting around 6 p.m. so organizers can set up for the event. Visitors will be allowed to stay inside the Isle of Palms County Park area or behind the restrooms to view the show.
Officials are reminding residents and visitors that all other fireworks are strictly prohibited in the city.
City officials said there will be extra personnel over the weekend in anticipation of "a significant influx" of visitors.
A golf cart and bike parade will kick off the holiday on Sullivan's Island, with the event beginning at Sunrise Presbyterian Church and ending at Sullivan’s Island Elementary School. Those interested in participating in the competition must register at Town Hall through July 1. A limited number of registrations will be available at the starting line until 8:30 a.m. on the Fourth of July itself.
Those who do not register can join the parade after the registrants, but will not be considered in the judging.
Festivities will follow the parade and refreshments will be served while the winners receive their ribbons.
The town's Independence Day party at the park and fireworks will also return after a multi-year absence.
Attendees can gather starting at 5:30 p.m. and should bring a chair or a blanket. The Shem Creek Boogie Band will play music, and fireworks will start around 9 p.m. During the event, dogs will not be allowed in the park, and alcohol is prohibited.
Outside of the town's display, fireworks are not allowed on Sullivan's Island. Extra officers will be assisting with traffic and law enforcement throughout the weekend. Residents and visitors are encouraged to bike or walk to events.
Pittsburghers hit the road for vacation travel amid surge in gas prices

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The price of gas has flowed into almost all areas of life, but right now, a lot of the focus around gas prices is centered around summer vacation and travel plans.
KDKA's John Shumway just returned home from his annual pilgrimage to South Carolina. During his travels, he paid as little as $4.39 for gas and along the way, he checked in with some Pittsburghers who also were on the road.
Shumway and his family hit the road with around $80 worth of gas in the tank, rolling through West Virginia, and taking note of prices as they went.
While in Wytheville, Virginia, he ran into Frank Pidro, a Cecil Township resident, and together they commiserated as they filled their tanks.
"It's Virginia, they are always cheap, or great, but 4.50 a gallon? And we're happy?" Pidro asked.
Pidro says that gas prices do have an impact, but feels that it has a higher impact locally and that while on a road trip, you just kind of have to take it on the chin and deal with it.
Other local travelers headed south, like Will Crumrid of Washington, Pa. says that the declining gas prices aren't the only highlight of the drive.
"I love it. Easy, drive beautiful mountains on the way down and easy ride," Crumrid said.
And of course, the sun and sand on Folly Beach near Charleston at the end of the drive tend to make you forget how much more you paid for gas.
Donna Fiorentini, a Bridgeville resident, says their family made the drive down to celebrate an engagement.
"After being locked up for the past two years, we were ready to go," Fiorentini said.
Shumway says he didn't have to look hard to find folks from Western Pa. on the Carolina shores from Hilton Head to the Outer Banks -- it sure didn't seem like anyone was letting the high price for gas stop them from hitting the beaches.
John Shumway joined KDKA in October 1988 as a General Assignment Reporter. During his years at KDKA, he has anchored the morning and weekend news and is currently a featured General Assignment Reporter on the station's 4, 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.
Five Legendary Moments In The Rock Star Life Of Rob Gronkowski | Say Goodbye To The Life Of The Party

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski has retired from the NFL, again. But this time it seems like this is for good. Gronk is quite possibly the greatest to play the position, and is bound to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
In 11 seasons, he compiled 621 catches, 9,286 yards, and 92 TDs. He’s a four-time Super Bowl champion, five-time Pro Bowl and four-time All-Pro honoree.
As prolific as he was on the field, Gronk was the man off the field. A legendary partier and someone that loved to have a good time. Here’s a look back at five legendary moments in the rock star life of “Gronk.”
#5. Gronk and Big Papi like Dunkin’ Donuts
Gronk and Boston Red Sox slugger David “Big Papi” Ortiz got together for a new Dunkin’ Donuts commercial called “Dunkin’ Paradise.” The ad capitalized on the oversized gregarious personalities of the two New England sports heroes and the ubiquity of the Massachusetts based coffee and doughnut company.
#4. Gronk judges Isle of Palms bikini contest
It was the summer of 2015 and Gronk was fresh off his first Super Bowl title as the New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks. Gronk and his crew popped up on Folly Beach in South Carolina. The TE agreed to be a judge during a bikini contest at the Windjammer on Isle of Palms.
#3. Gronk makes his WWE debut
A lifelong wrestling fan, Gronk made his WWE debut at WrestleMania 33 in 2017. He teamed up with star and friend Mojo Rawley to help Rawley win the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
Gronk has gone on to make several more appearances on WWE properties, including SmackDown. He hosted WrestleMania 36 and won the WWE 24/7 championship.
#2. White Tiger on “The Masked Singer”
Gronk competed on the reality singing competition “The Masked Singer” during season 3 and advanced to Super Nine.
He performed hits like “Ice Ice Baby,” “Good Vibrations,” “We Will Rock You,” and “I’m Too Sexy.”
#1. Gronk vs. Shaq dance-off
Ever wonder what it’s like to see two giant humans in a dance off? In 2018 at Shaq’s Fun House in Miami the basketball legend and Gronk showed off their moves on stage.
Shaq hosts an annual Super Bowl party the weekend of the big game in the host city. It’s part festival, part carnival, with live musical performances food and booze.
The former Patriots and Buccaneers tight end is headed for Canton as soon as he becomes eligible. He’s had a remarkable career on the football field, but his life off the field has seemingly been as much if not more fun.
If there is a Hall of Fame for partying and enjoying life, Gronk would be a first-ballot member in that one as well.
In the past several years we’ve seen networks shell out huge dollars to retain the broadcast services of former players. Gronk would be a welcomed addition to any studio show or game day broadcast team, if he so desires.
He has so many interests in addition to football it’s safe to say his post-playing career as some form of entertainer will go well.
