Reader targets pedestrian and cyclist safety I read with interest the recent story regarding the cyclist accident and pedestrian safety fears as well as the letter to the editor by Greg Turner on the “mystery” of who and why we are getting a traffic circle to replace traffic lights. I have been a...
Reader questions Rep. Nancy Mace’s support of education Representative Nancy Mace made a statement of support for educators on May 1. Sadly, her actions speak louder than her words. Not one of the multiple bills she has introduced in the 2019-2020 House address any issues with K-12 education. The...
Let’s hear it for teachers! On May 1, I was excited to take my three children in 5th, 7th and 10th grades on a field trip to experience our democracy in action. We traveled to the State House in Columbia with 10,000 teachers and supporters for the SC for Ed rally. It was incredible. The energy was...
Administration transparency My friends call me a news junkie. Not so anymore.

Thank you for allowing me to represent you on City Council for the past 12 years. It’s been my honor and my pleasure. Speaking of...
As Sue, Iggy and I travel across the country, one thought seems ever-present in our minds: What’s for dinner? Well, to be honest, we also wonder what’s for lunch. And, we start every single day by wondering what’s for breakfast. But, those questions have easier answers. Breakfast is usually a...
The art of renewal This time of year traditionally ushers in a sense of renewal and revitalization. Many religious traditions include a component of rebirth and the natural world itself begins to blossom and flourish around us. From putting away last year’s financials after filing the tax return...
