On the front page of the Feb. 19 Business section, there was an announcement that Gildan, a clothing company, plans to expand on Clements Ferry Road.

It said Gildan filed an application with the Army Corps of Engineers for a permit to fill about 2 acres of wetlands for construction.

Silly me, I thought that we in the Lowcountry had learned some lessons about conservation, particularly of the wetlands.
