TEN YEAR AGO In the December 7, 2006 edition of the paper the top news story was the holding of the first “drawing” for the Parkside Condominium project, an affordable housing initiative on Blakeway Street. A total of 17 units were spoken for after the drawing, which allowed qualified applicants...
It’s not easy to open a discussion about teens and addiction. Yet it’s a discussion that needs to happen - and it did at a Teens and Substance Abuse Forum at Bishop England High School on Tuesday evening, November 29. The panelists for the program, which was sponsored by The Daniel Island News,...
Yikes! Just when my emotional equilibrium was flummoxed by the Angie and Brad breakup, some fancy-pants astronomers at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have introduced a new zodiac chart.
