Here's today's highlights from the Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette:
Former state Sen. John Kuhn throws his hat into the ring, officially entering the 1st Congressional race with an event at 9 a.m. at Squat & Gobble, 1231 May River Road in Bluffton, followed by an appearance at 10:15 a.m. at the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park in Beaufort. Reporter Gina Smith will ask Kuhn how he plans to rise in the crowded field. Check back on our website later today for that story, and follow Smith at ,a href="www.twitter.com/GinaNSmith">twitter.com/GinaNSmith.
G. Love (born Garrett Dutton and of G. Love & Special Sauce fame) talks with Lowcountry Current about turning 40, social media and what he thinks about on stage. The troup continues to tour in support of 2011s Fixin to Die, but plays new songs from their forthcoming album and hits like Cold Beverage and Babys Got Sauce, too. The play at Charlestons Music Farm tonight, and Jacksonvilles Freebird Live on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. Copyright 2013 The_Island_Packet. All rights reserved.
