Much has been rightly said about recent attacks on conservative, libertarian, and other non-leftist speakers on college and university campuses around the country. The elements of intellectual intolerance, the willingness to shout down any ideological critic or opponent, and the resort to incidents of on-campus violence to prevent invited speakers from addressing students have been pointed out to represent a dangerous totalitarian streak among “progressives” and even more radical leftists.

U.S. Rep. James Clyburn visited Charleston Thursday and offered up a history lesson many may have missed: Thomas Edison, a white man, invented the light bulb, but Lewis Latimer, a black engineer and son of escaped slaves, invented the carbon filaments that allow the bulbs to stay lit for days. "We enjoy the illumination here because two people put aside their individual differences and decided it was more important to light the world than to divide by their own personal prejudices," Clyburn said, glancing up at the chandeliers hanging above the nave of Emanuel AME Church, on Thursday evening.

2. South Carolina's at-risk drivers linked to disadvantaged communities and schools

From the small wooden crosses that dot South Carolina highways to the broken glass and oil stains that litter intersections across the state, every driver knows how to identify the scene of a collision. But what can be learned if instead of focusing on where an accident took place, we examined the communities that produced these unfortunate drivers and pointed them in the direction of a crash? That's exactly what one local researcher did — and what he learned is that drivers who experience a collision have more in common than just a roadside accident. In earning his PhD from Clemson University, Dr. Kweku Brown aimed to identify what communities throughout South Carolina were home to a high density of drivers involved in crashes and see what, if any, characteristics they shared.

2. Former legislator says corruption probe won’t affect his Citadel appointment

A former state legislator does not expect his ties to a political consulting firm named in a State House corruption probe to affect his appointment to The Citadel’s governing board. Former state Rep. Jim Harrison, now the state code commissioner, told The State he has testified before a statewide grand jury investigating State House corruption about the Richard Quinn & Associates consulting firm. However, the Richland Republican, a former part-time Quinn employee, said he has been assured he is not a target of that investigation.

1. A one-stop smart home shop to help you care for mom and dad
Allison Dean Love was getting nervous. She hadn't heard from her mother, Amelia, in a few hours. There were no emails or phone calls. No one else could get in touch with her either. Concerned, a cousin went out to Amelia Dean's 1948 ranch-style house and found the 82-year-old on the floor and dehydrated. She doesn't remember what happened, but her family estimates she'd been down there for about six hours. Love and her husband, who live in South Carolina, raced back to the small town of Columbia, Tennessee -- Love can remember every minute of that awful day like an episode of Fox television show " 24," she said.

1a. Trump’s economic warfare targets innocent bystanders
An often forgotten truth is that it is not just military warfare that can cause injury to innocent bystanders, the same inescapably happens in economic warfare initiated by governments, as well. But in the latter case the human "collateral damage" is a targeted victim. On March 29, 2017, "The Wall Street Journal" ran a story highlighting the Trump Administration’s likely intention on getting tough in trade talks about American beef sales to the European Union. Being more in tune with "nature" and the "natural" than the United States, the European Union long ago imposed trade restrictions on the importing of American beef that have been bred with the use of artificial hormones.

Pro tip: If you're walking through Uptown Greenwood this summer and see Rusty Wilson sprawled on the ground in front of the district’s nature fountain, don't disrupt him. He's likely saving a life... Dennis Forsythe, a biology professor at The Citadel, has undertaken a project to document the migratory patterns of butterflies across the Carolinas. In March, he published his "24th approximation" focusing mainly on North Carolina, as county records for the Palmetto State are less thorough.

1A. Key Moments Since 1992, 'The Year of the Woman'
A record 47 women were elected to the House of Representatives, 24 for the first time, in what became known as "The Year of the Woman." Women also won an additional four seats in the Senate, with Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein and Carol Moseley Braun joining the incumbents Nancy Kassebaum and Barbara Mikulski... After winning a two-year legal battle against the Citadel, 19-year old Shannon Faulkner of South Carolina was the first female cadet to join the all-male military academy in its 152-year history. After spending most of her time in the infirmary, citing physical and mental stress, and needing protection by federal marshals, she left school. Today, about 180 undergraduate women are enrolled at the Citadel.

2. Charleston ready to move by bike
Some local officials have led people to believe that only a tiny minority of the public likes the idea of converting one lane of the T. Allen Legare Bridge over the Ashley River for bicycle and pedestrian use. So elected officials who have opposed it insist that they're doing the will of their constituents. Look again. Recent research by Charleston Moves and The Citadel shows those who want the lane converted, and who feel strongly enough to write their County Council representatives about it, outnumber those who wrote to say they oppose it by 10 times, 856 to 84. Those who support the plan also include several neighborhood associations, high profile businesses, including MUSC and about 30 leaders in the tech and creative industries.

David and Mary Hazel Small are busy people. David is a broker-in-charge at Intracoastal Realty, Mary Hazel is the chief financial officer for New Hanover County Schools, and together they have three kids. Yet each year they take days of precious vacation time to manage the cadet escorts for the N.C. Azalea Festival. The cadet escort program remains one of the deep-rooted traditions of the Azalea Festival. Either Virginia Military Institute (VMI) or The Citadel sends eight seniors to escort the Azalea Festival queens. This year, based on a rotation, all cadets will be students at VMI. Two of them hail from Wilmington.

Most students work hard in school hoping for a scholarship to help with some of the cost of a higher education. Full scholarships are hard to get and the completion can be tough. For one young man at Hedgesville High School, the dream was realized times three. Sabastien Morel has always been a determined and hard working student. He has worked hard on his grades, donated time to civic duties and excelled in high school sports. That all paid off when he was recently accepted into the Citadel, West Point Military Academy and the Naval Academy - all at the same time.

6. Who Is Landon's Boyfriend Drew On 'Southern Charm'? He's A Big Part Of Her Life
On April 3, the Southern Charm gang returns to Bravo for their fourth season, back for more wild adventures in the Holy City. And judging by this season's trailer, things are about to get a little crazy. So far, we know that the main cast members set to return this season are Landon, Kathryn, Craig, Cameran, Shep, and Thomas, though not much has been mentioned about any newcomers. The show will pick up where it left off last season, and it looks like most of Landon's storyline will revolve around her new business venture, as she's creating a startup. However, there also may be potential for fans to meet someone who may or may not be her new love interest on the show: Drew. But just who is Landon's boyfriend, Drew?
