3/2/11. As described in Dave Moulton’s (former bicycle frame builder and current resident of Charleston) blog, the terrible incident of a motorist intentionally driving into a group of school children in Summerville is making international headlines, framing the US as car-obsessed. Fortunately in this incident, none of the children were seriously hurt and the driver is facing serious charges. There were no sidewalks available for the children to walk on.
3/11/11. Randy DuTeau, event manager with the Augusta Sports Council, shared a fantastic op-ed piece to the Augusta Chronicle about efforts of advocates in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA).
