Virginia sleuth solves tough mystery
Last week’s mystery was one of the toughest ever.  It sought the location of a portrait of retired Democratic U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings of Isle of Palms was one of the toughest in a long time. 

Chris Brooks of Mount Pleasant  got a half mark for knowing that the portrait was moved from what was the Hollings Judicial Center before it was renamed for the late federal judge Waties Waring.  Upon the renaming, which was requested by Hollings (the only time a federal building has been renamed like this), the portrait was moved to Columbia.

But only one Currents reader — George Graf of Palmyra, Va., — knew that the portrait is now in a room in a new part of the Thomas Cooper Library at the University of South Carolina that is named in honor of Hollings.

PHOTO:  Riding piggyback?

PHOTO: Riding piggyback?

Hanahan photographer Chuck Boyd was driving in Raleigh for a Rolling Stones concert when he did a double take after he saw what looked like a small car riding piggyback on top of a van. “Moments later, I saw it really was a transport truck hauling a load of cars to a dealership,” he wrote. “I caught it at just the right angle to create a silly illusion.”
