Union leader reorganizing

Every morning, Mary Moultrie walks into a King Street office and faces the black-and-white images of her famous past. The photographs that line the walls tell a story of one of the most troubled times in recent Charleston history: picketing workers in white uniforms, thousands of people marching down Calhoun Street, petite women tussling with police officers. The photographs won't let her forget. They remind her why she's here.

Each patient beyond the fourth requires a sitter, and when a sixth patient arrives, a security guard must also stand duty.

Officials release tape of mother's 911 call

GOOSE CREEK â€" It was a desperate mother's call for help as her son lay cold and motionless on a mattress in the family dining room. "I think he's dead!" Loretta Lake cried out to a 911 operator. Officials on Friday released the 911 recording in the Oct. 16 case of a brother accused of killing his sibling by striking him in the head with a cast-iron frying pan.
