The two buses were carrying a total of around 100 people to the Cup, Jones said.

I was absolutely thrilled Saturday with the C-I's win of the Reid Montgomery FOI award from the S.C. Press Association. It was a real surprise. A good number of papers in this state spend a lot of their time on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and open government issues. Some of them file FOIA requests right and left. Some papers' stories end up setting legal precedents.

Wednesday's episode of the CW's Arrow is a perfect example of why I watch the show. Such shows -- based on the Green Arrow character from DC Comics -- may be fluff but, in this case, it's intelligent fluff. The writing and acting is spot-on and the producers have paced the first two seasons in a way that doesn't drag things out, but keeps you guessing along the way.
I have said before -- in fact, not that long ago -- that covering tragedies is no fun. This is especially true when the tragedy takes place where you live, or at least close by. When you can say that you either know the people involved, or are friends of their friends, it hits you even harder.
