A round of applause for DI’s first ‘Brouhaha’ Mardi Gras celebration! Life on Daniel Island is pretty good, but on February 28, it got even better. I’m talking about the Brouhaha Marching Band Mardi Gras Parade and Celebration ending at Guggenheim Plaza. Where to start? First and foremost, there...
Restoring hope and opportunity is critical to lifting up our communities who feel like they have been left behind. We have people all across the country living paycheck to paycheck who are forced to make choices no family should, like whether they should pay for heat in the winter or purchase...
Thank you for the opportunity to serve our students and teachers on the Berkeley County School Board. I also want to thank The Daniel Island News for allowing me to provide my first quarterly update as your School Board Representative. Student Achievement - The Number One Priority My top priority...

RE: "TIME FOR A GRAND PARK ON DANIEL ISLAND" I love the concept of a grand park for the southern tip of Daniel Island as presented by Rep. Sanford. As a New Yorker, my life in Manhattan was incredibly enhanced by Central Park. It was my playground. But wait, Rep. Sanford mentioned that “traffic is...
The first time I heard the expression, “Abs are made in the kitchen,” I was watching a highlight video of the 2015 CrossFit Games. Here were some of the fittest athletes in the world - all with washboard abs, all lifting incredible amounts of weight, all serious athletes. Yet, one of these strong...
