Can you answer these questions?
1. Who won the Race for the Cure in 2010?

The answers to these questions and more are available at thedanielislandnews.com.
The Daniel Island News’s website contains stories dating back to 2005 and is an excellent resource available to the community for free.
If you are looking for historical information, the status of island developments, sporting news, or more, you can search our digital archives. Similarly, if you have a question about something happening more recently, are out of town, don’t subscribe to our e-newsletter (The Current) or otherwise missed an edition of the paper, you can find up-to-date news and reporting online as well.
Last week, a reader emailed asking us to write a story about what’s going on with the construction at the Volvo Car Stadium. I quickly went to our website, entered “Volvo Stadium” in the search box, and was able to provide her with links to several stories our staff already wrote.
The Daniel Island News’ online search function is easy to use. Simply go to thedanielislandnews.com. The search bar is at the very top right of every page. Its functionality is similar to many other search functions and engines you probably already use, like Google. You can use quotation marks around names or other words if you want to only find those words in a particular order. Once you’ve found a list of articles, there are advanced functions that help you narrow your search to your specific need.
In addition to our online search function, the website also contains full reproductions of the print edition dating as far back as Sept. 18, 2015, when we launched a new website and added the e-edition function.
If you are working from a computer, you can find the e-edition link directly above the letter “D” in The Daniel Island News masthead. If you are accessing the paper’s website from your phone, click on “select a page,” and then select “e-Edition.”
NEW, IMPROVED E-EDITION IS IN THE WORKS
We plan to implement a new interactive e-edition format in the near future. The new e-edition will be more reader friendly and have multiple options on how to view the stories, including as if reading the print paper.
The e-edition also includes additional benefits for our print advertisers as the links and email addresses in their ads will contain active hyperlinks.
We will launch the new e-edition as soon as we have at least one advertising sponsor to help us cover the costs of the new technology and the time needed to update it each week. The main sponsorship opportunity includes a position at the top of every page and is an excellent way to both brand your business and market specific services.

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION PHOTOS
It’s not too late to have your graduating high school senior’s photo published in the paper. We are thankful to Tumbleston Photography and Josten’s for providing the headshots for Bishop England and Philip Simmons and school administrators and parents from other schools who sent in their photos. If you haven’t sent in your photo, you can still do so. Please send your photos to email@example.com
by Sunday, July 4, so we can include them with others we’ve collected and publish them in the July 8 edition of the paper.
