Arlene Heape Hull has written a wonderful homage to her grandfather Artie Mitchell Heape who served in two wars and was chief of police in Beaufort.  Her book “A Low Country Man and his Life” gives a fascinating account of the times and her grandfather’s contribution to shaping modern day Beaufort. Here are some pics from the book signing.

A bike shop is coming to the old bus station at the Northeast corner of Boundary and Charles streets. The Lipsitz building on Bay Street has finally been bought: all the old vinyl siding will be stripped off and six new residential condos will go upstairs. A wine store by the owners of Griffin Market will open in part of the downstairs as they look for a tenent for the big part of the store.
