Charlie's CCP Stories

  1. Animal Society Fights Overcrowding

    Space is running short at the Charleston Animal Society's (CAS) 31,000-square-foot facility on Remount Road, as a predictably busy summer season of fostered pets has been augmented by a pair of issues no one saw coming.

  2. Charter a course for a day of deep-sea fishing

    Summertime in the Holy City is all about the water, whether you spend it relaxing by the pool, reading at the beach, or casting a fly into a lake. But for some water-sport enthusiasts, no summer pastime satisfies the soul as much as a day spent deep-sea fishing. Regardless of whether you fish from your own boat, a friend's, or a chartered vessel, the experience of hooking a mahimahi is unlike any other.

  3. Charleston's three water parks will help keep you cool

    Summer has taken hold here in the Lowcountry. School is out, the mercury's rising, and parents without a plan are once again being confronted with the daily challenge of finding something for their children to do. Luckily, one sure thing is still out there guaranteeing a day of fun for the kids and a little sun for mom and dad: water parks. Parents searching for a daily activity can still turn to the Splash Island Waterpark in Mt. Pleasant, the Splash Zone Waterpark on James Island, and the Whirlin' Waters Adventure Waterpark in North Charleston for a guaranteed good time with their kids this summer.

  4. Do you have what it takes to catch a catfish with your bare hands?

    Some people fish with a rod and reel. Others with a cast net. Some have even been known to use a stick of dynamite. But nothing compares to the sheer craziness of noodling.

  5. Blotter: Like Shooting Lobster in a Barrel

    Threat o' the week: "People in this country get shot for hanging up the phone on someone else! I'm coming down there to pick up that live lobster, and I'm going to shoot all of you!"

  6. County Parks moves ahead with skatepark

    Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) Executive Director Tom O'Rourke announced last week that his organization is going ahead with its plan to install a state-of-the-art skateboarding park at the base of the Ravenel Bridge in downtown Charleston.

  7. Blotter: TP, Schlitz, and a pack of Fig Newtons

    Shoplift o' the Week: A roll of toilet paper, two 32. oz bottles of Schlitz, and a pack of Fig Newtons from a downtown convenience store.

  8. School teacher Craig Jelks to run against Mayor Riley

    Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. has saddled up for another re-election campaign, his ninth as an incumbent. Nine times he's been challenged, and nine times he's bested the field. And though the fraternity of failed challengers to Riley is as diverse as it is large, it's unlikely he has ever run against a candidate like Craig Jelks.

  9. SCSPA Unveils Union Pier Plans

    Last Wednesday, the State Ports Authority (SPA) presented to the public preliminary design plans for the new Union Pier cruise ship terminal. The concept presented to the public represents a significant chapter in what has become a saga on how to best use the more than 60 acres of waterfront property.
