Some state lawmakers, even those who are otherwise relatively sane, say an extensive knowledge of the law isn’t a requirement for a good judge. Perhaps they’re projecting.
The next Baxter-Patrick James Island branch is more than a library. It's a community gathering place, and a history museum.
When Chief Eddie Driggers retired, Mayor Keith Summey had the brilliant idea to forego a national search and instead promote Burgess. He was a great pick. Which is why Gov. Henry McMaster last week nominated him to lead the state Department of Public Safety.
Keith Waring, the only City Council incumbent to survive a challenge from one of the group’s candidates, says local politicians should take heed.

The state Department of Transportation shouldn’t be surprised about all this flak over its plans to “improve” Highway 61.
Harris Street, where Wendell Gilliard remembers the vegetable man hawking produce every morning of his childhood, is the same street where, two weeks ago, a young man was murdered.
