His sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, recently ran for a congressional seat in the state’s first district, but lost to Mark Sanford.darius-rucker

    Porter ‘Guad’? ‘Really? It’s Gaud.

    Rucker went to Middleton High, which operated 1970-2000. Now the former Middleton building is used for West Ashley Middle. The MIddleton district merged with the St. Andrews district to make way for the new West Ashley High.

    Rucker and the other members of H&tB have held a Homegrown Concert series for 10 years, making lots of school supplies available to Charleston’s kids. http://bit.ly/OkoWvj
    H&tB have also run the Monday after the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am golf tournament in North Myrtle in April. http://bit.ly/11E0Lmx

      Apologies for the misspelling and thanks for catching it. Sorry to ruffle your feathers.
