The centerpiece featured the growing popularity of city youth recreation and athletic programs on Daniel Island. The city recreation department introduced its fun to Daniel Island kids in 2001 through its “Recreation in a Bag” program, a mobile mini-festival that traveled to various Charleston neighborhoods. The department opened its office in the municipal building in September 2004.

A string of thefts on the island prompted Charleston Police to send a warning to DI residents. Former Lt. Byrne reported to The Daniel Island News that three teenagers had been arrested on various charges related to the recent crime spree. According to Byrne, the crime uptick on the island began around spring break time. With summer vacation fast approaching, Byrne urged parents to keep kids busy with activities such as work, sports, camps and other activities. He also suggested they pay close attention to what their children are up to.
The centerpiece was all about beer with an article that included an interview with Daniel Island resident Hank Hanna, who was dabbling in brewology and had partnered with a neighborhood friend to take garage beer-making to another level.
