A Note from John McCann: New Town Manager Comes with Local Knowledge and Experience

A Note from John McCann: New Town Manager Comes with Local Knowledge and Experience

Hilton Head Island Town Council voted in December to offer the Hilton Head Island town manager position to Marc Orlando, who most recently served as town manager for Bluffton. Our action represents one of the highest duties of Town Council in employing a manager and determining what skills, experience, and personality are best suited to meet the needs and opportunities of the Town of Hilton Head Island.

News from “The Sound”: Taking the music of the Lowcountry beyond our shores

News from “The Sound”: Taking the music of the Lowcountry beyond our shores

Late 2020 and early 2021 have seen an endless and varied list of music projects flow through my recording studio, “The Sound.” 2020 ended on a high note with the manifestation of a brand new, non-profit philanthropic endeavor: the Hilton Head Island Music and Arts Coalition (HHMAC). HHMAC focuses on addressing the needs of children in our community via the local Boys & Girls Club, Backpack Buddies, and the Beaufort County PTA. In its burgeoning online fundraising event known as “We Are the Island,” I was tasked with finding a safe and socially distanced recording and production process in which more than 45 singers, one rapper, three 10-person choirs, nine drummers, 10 guitar players, one pianist, bass player, organist, trombonist, and accordion player, would all appear together performing one song, the apt and timely Burt Bacharach classic, “What the World Needs Now.”

It was a night not so long ago, more or less the same as any other night at Nunzio Restaurant + Bar. The wine was flowing, uncorked and poured with practiced ease from a carefully curated collection that takes center stage right as you walk in. The food was as sublimely delicious as ever, each dish chosen to represent the pinnacle of Italian techniques and local flavors. And the conversation buzzed, as it tends to when diners are enjoying a meal to remember.

The Voice of Experience: After a quarter of a century, Gina Faucette-Farbman has seen it all when it comes to Hilton Head Island real estate.

It might be one of the most well-worn tenants of the real estate industry, but there truly is no substitute for experience. Especially when it comes to buying and selling on Hilton Head Island, the best aspect a realtor can bring to the table is knowledge: what communities offer which amenities, where buyers can find the best value, how much sellers can expect their property to be worth … it all needs to be on command at a moment’s notice.

Love and Marriage (And Everything in Between)

Love and Marriage (And Everything in Between)

As Paul McCartney once co-wrote, “All you need is love.” Of course, he would later go on to write, “You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs.”

His wild swing in perspective here more than likely boils down to one thing: sometime between writing those two songs, he got married. Because marriage and love are two different things.

Love is a fleeting rush of dopamine, a temporary fluttering of butterflies, a silly infatuation. Marriage is something much stronger. Marriage is all that’s best about love—the selflessness, the devotion, the absolute inability to live without another person—but aged like wine.

If love is the block of marble, then marriage is the sculpture. And the couples on the following pages have created some beautiful works together.
