REVIEW: Inside the O’Briens

REVIEW: Inside the O’Briens

Inside the O’Briens: I recently read the new book by Lisa Genova, called Inside the O’Briens. I loved her first book, Still Alice, as well. Genova is a neuroscientist, and although she writes fiction, her books explore various neurological issues, and it’s obvious that she knows what she’s talking about.

FOCUS: In race to move Charleston forward, keep it together

By Leon Stavrinakis, candidate for mayor of Charleston | Forty years ago, Joe Riley left the legislature to become mayor of Charleston. We have all been witness to the kind of difference proven leadership can make as we watched him lead Charleston’s transformation into a diverse, economic powerhouse led by thriving hospitality, booming manufacturing, growing knowledge based, high-tech industries and the most unique quality of life anywhere.

As Mayor Riley steps away from the stage, it’s time to ask ourselves what we need for our city to continue to be the special place we all love.

Three letters on Cuba column

Three letters on Cuba column

We totally agree with what you have said. We visited Cuba in early March with a group and were enchanted. Loved it. Do not want too many changes to take place, though perhaps opportunities for improvement for the lives and comfort of the Cuban people who were quite wonderful.

HISTORY: South Carolina’s connection to Barbados

HISTORY: South Carolina’s connection to Barbados

S.C. Encyclopedia | One of the enduring myths of American history is the centuries-old assertion that the thirteen original colonies were “English” colonies. While they were governed by the English, the colonies were not peopled only by individuals of English ancestry.
