Editor’s Note: By the time you read this edition of the paper, the Volvo Car Open will be over. The street will be open, the grounds packed up, and our first memories of the newly named tournament will be fresh in our mind. Last week we interviewed fans, residents, tournament staff and tournament...
My exhaustive research, dating back to 40,000 B.C., reveals that (stunningly) men and women have been playing together for a long time (a fact, I suppose, for which we should all be thankful). But in the world of sports, it’s a rare day that the genders mix. Tennis may be the only haven. So when...
This year ushers in the first ever Volvo Car Open on Daniel Island. For the first 15 years that the tennis tournament was played on Daniel Island, it was known as the Family Circle Cup. As a tribute to the past, we asked fans, players, volunteers and event staff to reflect on their most vivid...
Historians insist that the 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us – an age of unprecedented promise and peril as we begin to “fuse the physical, digital and biological worlds,” in the words of Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. What characterizes the 4th...

The brainchild of island resident Fred Danziger, sponsored by The Daniel Island News, and embraced by local high schools around the lowcountry, a...
Library Parking Only The best time for me to visit our beautiful island library is early afternoon. Unfortunately, it’s the favorite time for parents and caregivers of children at DIS to park their cars there, too. Some are even bold enough to park directly next to a sign stating “Library Parking...
“When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.” – Benjamin Franklin I keep waiting for that moment. I keep waiting for a candidate to walk on stage and openly explain – without hesitation, with no hint of trepidation – that they’ve changed their mind. Our candidate might then explain why, based...
