"There's too much information clutter in today's society. CharlestonCurrents.com will cut through the clutter and provide thoughtful commentary from community leaders as well as news briefs and information that are hard to find in traditional media."

-- Editor and publisher Andy Brack of Charleston

The online publication, edited by seasoned Charleston journalist Andy Brack, includes several fresh features to connect readers better with what's happening in the Charleston area. Among them:

  • TODAY'S FOCUS: Each issue is headlined by a community commentary by a key leader on a subject of interest throughout Charleston. For example, during election time, there might be a column by a noted local political observer. Or at the approach of the spring gardening season, CharlestonCurrents.com may provide an expert's advice on how to get ready for planting.

  • THE LIST: Each issue includes a fun list of something pertinent to Charlestonians. It might be a community leader's list of five accomplishments, a chef's five favorite wines or a writer's five favorite beach novels.

  • GOOD NEWS: Our staff sorts through the jumble of information from arts groups, area attractions, government agencies and nonprofit organizations to distill the most important and interesting bits of news that are underreported in traditional media.

  • REVIEWS: CharlestonCurrents.com frequently publishes reader reviews of neat books, area restaurants, performances and more to help all readers keep ahead of what's happening in the Charleston area.

  • SPECIAL SECTIONS. We have lots of routine contributors that make the publication interesting:

    • Contributor Greg Garvan gives frequent updates on environmental and green news impacting the region.

    • Historian Doug Bostick provides a monthly look at what was happening 150 years ago during the Civil War.

    • Photographer Michael Kaynard blesses the publication with great photos taken throughout the Lowcountry.

  • COMMENTARY: Publisher Andy Brack provide weekly commentaries on issues of community importance.
