In 2020, Nancy Mace boasted of her success in passing her S.C. bill which protected over 1,000 South Carolina female prison inmates should they be pregnant while in prison. I have not read how many prisoners were pregnant in S.C. prisons and just how many of those women were actually shackled...
I never thought in 2021 I would write about a vote regarding statues in the U.S. Capitol, but here we are.    Last month, in overwhelming bipartisan fashion, the House of Representatives voted to relocate 14 statues throughout the U.S. Capitol.    Lost in the discussion was the main...
Danziger honor well deserved There are so many “bad” things in the world these days. Poverty, gun violence, discrimination, climate change, divisiveness, violence against “the others,” warfare, etc. Who among us has not read this morning’s headlines and wished that they could do something to make...
There were multiple winners of last week’s Mystery Photo Contest who correctly identified the picture as one of the fountain spouts as part of the new waterfront park. Congrats to Nancy True, Shatara Young, Karen Fedder, Blaire Layton, Dianne Buck, Lavya Garg, and Tom McCurdy for their accurate...

If you were there, you know exactly what I mean. In addition, seeing...
Lieutenant Matt Wojslawowicz, Team 5 Commander with the Charleston Police Department, recently addressed “Ding, Dong, Ditch” activity in a letter to the Daniel Island Property Owners Association:   “The Charleston Police Department has been made aware of a recent uptick in the number of...
Can you answer these questions?    1. Who won the Race for the Cure in 2010?   2. When was Jane Baker hired to lead the POA and who did she replace?   3. What citizen group did Pat and John Dietz start in 2007?   The answers to these questions and more are available at...
  Only one non-fiction book this month and it is a fast and entertaining read, “Best Seat in the House” by Jack Nicklaus II. Not a golf book, rather a tribute to Jack the parent who made a herculean effort to be there for his five children in spite of the demands of travel. Barbara is his...
