Johns Island toll road unlikely

A toll road probably isn't in the cards for Johns Island. Elected officials from the southern end of Charleston County say they're still considering building a road that spans a part of the island â€" just not one people have to pay to drive on. At a Wednesday meeting called by Charleston Mayor Joe Riley to open a dialogue about a future road on the island, Riley met with Charleston County Councilmen Paul Thurmond and Curtis Inabinett, and the mayors of Rockville and Kiawah and Seabrook islands.

Riley to meet Obama team

Charleston Mayor Joe Riley is expected to join a delegation of mayors today in Chicago to discuss urban policy with a senior adviser to President-elect Barack Obama. The U.S. Conference of Mayors Working Group on Urban Policy will be giving input to Obama transition team officials, who are developing plans for a new office on urban policy in the White House. "This is an incredible opportunity for cities to be a part of the national agenda," Riley said in a prepared statement.

Lloyd reverses game decision

SLED Chief Reggie Lloyd has reversed himself, nixing a consent agreement he signed last month involving a video game supporters say is based on skill, not chance, to win. The move came after Gov. Mark Sanford raised concerns about a deal Lloyd signed covering Chess Challenge II, a video game already in circulation.
