Former UPS store owner thanks customers   It has been my privilege for the past 10 years to serve the residents of this beautiful island.  Turning this enterprise over to its new owners was the toughest career decision I ever made.     I have had retail experience in five states but I...
Thank you to The Daniel Island News for allowing me to provide this county update.   I am happy to report that because of the competent professional leadership of Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb and the cooperation of my colleagues on County Council, District 2 has some exciting...
In our attempts at creativity and coming up with ways to not beat our heads against the wall during the pandemic, I wonder how many boomers (including me) decided to start a small business.   There are even some nifty acronyms for us — SIB (seniors in business) and NDY (not dead yet).   ...
