Mark Smith is qualified candidate   My wife, Billie, and I have lived on Daniel Island for 21 years and watched with wonder as our community has grown and prospered. In order to keep good, healthy and prosperous growth in the future we must elect the best leaders we can, and that is why I am...
One of the things I like most about this dish, besides the amazing flavors, is the quick prep and cook time. Everything you need to prepare it is right here on Daniel Island.   I created this dish after having it in Rome in a small restaurant on a rainy summer evening about 15 years ago. It was...
In September, the Union Times announced it was closing its doors after 170 years, citing the economic effects of COVID-19. It’s a sad thing when newspapers like the Union Times close, but it’s no longer shocking. Newspapers have been plagued by declining circulation numbers and shrinking...
Jen Gibson offers real solutions   I read last week’s Point/Counterpoint with great interest, eager to hear what the Statehouse District 99 candidates had to say about Charleston-area infrastructure. Jen Gibson laid out a well-researched plan to address not only maintenance of current roads...

Democrat Jen Gibson and Republican Mark Smith are running for the South Carolina House of Representatives District 99 seat left vacant by Nancy Mace, who is running for U.S. House of Representatives. The candidates were invited to share their thoughts on securing financial support for Charleston-...
We woke up on Sept. 18 to a world without Ruth Bader Ginsberg. I lost another piece of my heart, similar in proportion to the one I lost when my mother died. I never met RBG, but I knew her.   Like my mom, she was small but mighty. Also like my mom, she took care of us. She fought for justice...
Yesterday, I almost gave out my credit card number to a phone scammer.     My cell phone rang just after 4 p.m., and though I didn’t recognize the number I chose to answer it thinking, as I do, that it might be a prospect (I run a sports marketing company and, from time to time, we receive...
