Less than a week after the horrific shooting spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and staff members, a coalition of 16 news outlets and organizations filed a motion with the criminal court overseeing the prosecution of the shooter, arguing that...
Editor’s Note: This week we provide our readers with responses from Berkeley County elected officials Councilman Josh Whitley, Supervisor Bill Peagler and Sheriff Duane Lewis to The Daniel Island News reader survey on gun violence solutions.

Be aware of your surroundings. Especially in parking garages. This is a mantra I’ve had in my own head since I first learned to drive a car over 35 years ago. It’s advice I passed along to my children, particularly to my daughter, but also to my sons. And, I recently posted to the fridge in my home...
Support Federal Assault Weapon Registry Assault weapons are weapons of mass murder.

Small, weekly (or non-daily) publications are a form of public service. They bring us “good news” and recognize the efforts of hometown people who make a difference. On...
What a whirlwind the first two weeks in the S.C. State House have been! We appreciated the cheers from the gallery, from folks all across the state who were there to show support at my swearing in.
