For some rather industrious Daniel Island and Cainhoy peninsula youngsters, earning some extra cash goes well beyond a neighborhood lemonade stand.   Today’s youth are stretching their entrepreneurial muscles as well as showing a penchant for philanthropy.   In this week’s issue, pages 18...
This is a bonus month for non-fiction lovers.   This first book is somewhat controversial because the author refuses to say which parts are fiction, if any. “Homeland Elegies” by Ayad Akhtar has generated significant interest. He is a Pulitzer Prize winner for a previous play so certainly has...
