Richardson family extends huge thank you for supporting their family after the death of their children
One year ago on November 18, 2012 a tragic car accident took the lives of two loving children of ours Matthew Richardson, age 19, and Kelvin Richardson, age 17.
At that time we received an overwhelming number of cards, money, flowers, food, and visits from people we knew as well as a great number of strangers. We didn’t have a chance to send thank you notes to a lot of the people who reached out to us, and we didn’t have return addresses and so forth, but it’s never too late to say “thank you”.
We don’t want to individually give names because we may miss someone, but we do want to say thank you to EVERYONE, no matter what you did then and are still doing for us now.
We, the parents of these children, express our SINCERE THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR ALL YOU DID TO SHOW LOVE TO US DURING THAT TIME. Thank you all for your continuing prayers, support, and love that you are still showing to us, the parents, and our surviving son Tony and granddaughter Mellody.
The process of healing is still taking place and as the days go by sweet memories will linger, but the hurt will fade.
THANK YOU!
Reverend Tony Bernard, Mrs. Karen and Tony, Jr Richardson

Thank you Daniel Island
   On behalf of the Cub Scouts Pack 519 and Boy Scouts Troop 519 out of Holy Cross Church Daniel Island, we wish to extend a huge thank you to those who gave their support to the Scouts at the First Annual Park Day BBQ. Whether you purchased a BBQ plate, BBQ by the pound or gave a donation, we thank you. We are proud of the 80 Cubs Scouts and 25 Boy Scouts that are part of the Daniel Island Scout family. We are fortunate to live in such a great community that values programs such as scouting.
A big thank you to all the parents of the Scouts. We thank you for your involvement with the BBQ and all Scouting activities. You are an integral part of scouting and a wonderful role model for our Scouts.

Burglary prompts increased police presence and police advice great resident awareness
The Daniel Island area has been fortunate to have had predominantly minor incidents reported to police for an extended period of time. However, there was a reported burglary recently.  On Wednesday, November 13 between the hours of 10:45 am and 2:45 pm, residents reported an unknown subject (s) forced entry through the rear patio door of their residence. Although there were no electronics taken, the residents advised that jewelry and a Louis Vuitton suitcase were taken. 
Officers have increased their presence in the immediate and surrounding areas in an effort to identify possible suspects. Unfortunately, officers do not know all residents in the area so please be patient if an officer makes contact with you. Officers are also exploring additional avenues that may assist in identifying possible suspect(s). Be reminded that we are approaching the holiday season, which traditionally yields an increase in crime. Let’s work together to combat that “tradition” in this area. Please utilize all the preventive maintenance that you have to secure your property including locking car and residence doors, setting alarms and being observant.
We (police) have periodically been receiving calls for suspicious people and vehicles throughout the community and I ask that you encourage your neighbors to continue their efforts in contacting the police regarding any suspicious people and/or activity. Unfortunately, there is a lot of construction going on in the community, which brings in a multitude of various people.  However, please do not disregard the young female or male (non-workers) that you may have noticed awkwardly walking around a particular home or the lawn service employee that you noticed came back after the rest of his co-workers have completed the work.   
Please be advised/reminded that The Charleston Police Department has joined the Consolidated Dispatch Center as of last week. Therefore, the phone number residents should call for non-emergency situations has changed to 743-7200.  911 will continue to be the emergency number for emergency situations.
Thank you!!
Respectfully,
Lt. K. Rivers
