Women in Sports: Rachel Uremovich

Success is All in Your Mind!

How do you measure success? It’s probably not exactly the same for any two people. While athletes measure success by wins or their personal best, a business owner may measure success by the amount of money the business nets every year. Regardless of how you measure…

It Could Be Worse

An Interview with Kathryn Wall

Jeffrey Robinowich

Highly Wreck-A-Mended When you walk into Morris Garage and Towing, just off SC 46 on the edge of “Old Bluffton,” you immediately know this is a no-nonsense place that fixes cars. NAPA signs hang on the walls. Work orders and car parts litter the counter. Tinkering…

A Town Is Born: Part II

When it came to those who favored incorporation, there were fundamentally two camps: those who wanted to control growth, mostly retirees, and those who wanted to control how the island was growing. By 1983, developers on Hilton Head had a very bad name. And anyone…

Operation R & R: Reconnecting at the Beach

Phillip and Misty Rabon finally got what they wanted—a little R&R with the kids, at the beach, at the Sea Crest—reconnecting. They had never been to Hilton Head Island, though they live only about 80 miles down the road. The Rabons, with four-year-old daughter Aubrey and…

It's Spring: Think Albarino!

As March roars in, it’s time to start thinking about the warmer weather and those wonderful “porch-friendly” white wines. If you are a Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio drinker, or if you are looking for an alternative white wine, then an Albarino is great selection—think crisp…

Heaven on Hilton Head

The Heavenly Spa by Westin Their hands moved like professional harpists over my body, face, and scalp, applying natural lotions and masks so soothing that I melt like butter into the table. The hot stones being pressed and rolled over my legs created a cleansing sensation…

Let's Take a Ride

What seems like something of a dream became a reality over a century ago for two young men tinkering with engines in an old 10×15-ft. wooden shed. What came about in that old Milwaukeean wooden shed in 1901 was pure destiny—even to those who don’t…

Can I Really Get in Trouble for Downloading Copyrighted Music?

I’ve been asked this question numerous times and the answer is really: who knows, but why risk it? The problem is people generally get wrapped around the idea of: “I like it, so it should be legal.” As a former police officer, I found that…

Editor's Note: March 2008
