When Mavis Staples says you're black, you're black

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

The title track of the great Mavis Staples' new album, If All I Was Was Black, is a stunning song. Over a raw, gritty R&B track that hearkens back to the early 1970s heyday of Al Green and Sly Stone, Staples, still a strikingly powerful voice at the age of 78, rides the song's infectious groove, asking "If all I was was black/ Don't you wanna know me more than that?"

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 09:19:00 -0500

Robert Miller, a longtime member of the Charleston Transportation Committee, was replaced by lawmakers on Wednesday after "offensive comments on Facebook" were brought to the attention of local members of the state Senate.

Miller subsequently removed some of the posts, Grooms said, "but nonetheless, he was replaced today as a member of the Charleston Transportation Committee."

State senators from Charleston County have approved former Mt. Pleasant town councilman Paul Gawrych to assume the position, Grooms says. more…

Ex-rep. at center of a corruption probe avoids jail after years of investigations and people aren't happy about it

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 15:52:00 -0500

The way we've seen it over the past 24 hours, it seems that many people thought that former state Rep. Rick Quinn (R-Lexington) should have spent at least some time in jail after he became the focus of a years-long corruption dragnet in Columbia, charged with using his Statehouse position to pocket some $4 million.

But during a 10 minute hearing in a Beaufort courtroom yesterday, Judge Carmen Mullen quickly dispensed with the case that at one time looked like it might be the 'big fish' state investigators craved. more…

Mick Mulvaney on taking over as top Trump wrangler: "I don't want that job"

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 14:09:00 -0500

Former S.C. Congressman Mick Mulvaney said on Sunday that he doesn't want to become White House chief of staff, and we can't blame him.

Late last week, as details emerged about who among the West Wing top brass, including Chief of Staff Mike Kelly, knew that one of President Donald Trump's top aides was accused of serial spousal abuse, the New York Times reported that Trump had begun asking friends what they think about Mulvaney. First-hand confirmation of the president's thirst for validation had not apparently reached the former Upstate congressman by Sunday, when he told "Face the Nation" he hasn't talked to anyone about taking the job. more…
