CHARLESTON, SC -

According to the Charleston Solicitors office, a judge has issued an order to quickly transfer Veronica back to Charleston after a missed visitation on Sunday.

Read more about Veronica's story here.

Back in July a state court finalized Veronica's adoption to the Capobiancos on James Island.  The court approved a transition plan to help make this a smooth move back to Charleston for the toddler.  The visitations are meant to get Veronica reacquainted with her adoptive parents.

According to the Cherokee Nation, Dusten Brown is at a 30 day training for the Army National Guard.  They say he informed the court of the training.

Colonel Max Moss from the Oklahoma National Guard released this statement Tuesday:  "Dusten has been gone since July 22. This wasn't a two week training, just to clear that up.  Oklahoma national guard won't interject at this time into the matters involving baby Veronica and natural father, Oklahoma guardsman Dusten brown, who is attending military training out of state until August 21st. While we respect the request by judge Martin to enforce his order we believe it inappropriate for the Oklahoma national guard to take action in this matter until such time as it's been fully litigated by all parties.  There are other legal mechanisms available to the state of South Carolina to enforce the court order that have nothing to do with the national guard or specialist brown military service."

An attorney for the Capobiancos would not confirm whether that meant that the transition plan will completely change.

Attorneys for Brown have until 9:30 Tuesday morning to surrender all knowledge of where he is located.  The order was also sent to the Army National Guard where Brown is a guardsmen.

    April 20th is the day marijuana advocates have long used to promote the drug's legalization. At a smoke shop on Folly Road Sunday, no customers would discuss marijuana use, but admitted to waiting outside four hours before the store opened its doors so they could invest in deals on pipes. Meanwhile in Denver this weekend, business is booming. The state claims millions of dollars in revenue since pot was legalized and the once feared crime increase has not materialized.

    Beer bill aims to bring big brewers to South Carolina

    A bill filed this week could be a game changer for South Carolina beer breweries. "It will increase production, right now they're limited to 2,000 barrels of beer a year. This would really raise the stakes to 500,000," Brook Bristow, attorney for the SC Beer Association said. Bristow wrote the bill that's called the "Stone Bill," intended to lure Stone Brewing to the Palmetto State. They're a west coast brewery looking to expand on the east coast.
