The $47M renovation of USC's (now) old law school was approved. The CHE is still holding hostage the purchase of the land just south of the UofSC Bookstore on Assembly though.

I don't think we've discussed this yet. Given that Greenville is the bigger system, it seems like they may pull more of the administrative positions in their direction over time. I doubt there will be any huge layoffs. I also don't see this having much trouble with regulators.

If USC is smart, it will try to leverage its med school at Greenville and its connection with Palmetto Health to brand the new system as Palmetto-USC Hospital System or something in that vein. The system would be seen as a teaching system (helpful for magnet accreditation) and the school would benefit from potentially insourcing a lot of the research, which helps with the goal of eventually being admitted into the AAU.

I cant believe I haven't heard about this till now, but apparently the city of Columbia is designing a new flag. They've narrowed it down to 19 flags and we have the chance to vote on what we like the best. Take a look:

There are a lot of good ideas, but I really, really liked design #11. The very last design (#19) was the most bland, IMO.

Question about the SC Aquarium in Charleston?!?!

My cousin and her husband were conversing about the SC Aquarium and how it was a disappointment on Facebook. They said it was nice but small and not really worth the price or time. Comments from her friends stated they should visit the ones in ATL, Cape Fear and Chattanooga because they were way better. She stated that it shouldn't have been in Charleston to begin with and would have been better suited for Columbia. It got me thinking, because my better half took our son there last year and left with the same sentiment and basically said the aquarium should have been in downtown Columbia instead like the one in Chattanooga is. My cousin and her family just moved back home from the West Coast and felt like having that Aquarium right along the canal with EdVenture and the SC State Museum would have been the best fit.

I guess i'm wondering if Columbia was ever even considered for the Aquarium and do anyone agree with what my fiancee and my cousin's family were saying?

I haven't been to the aquarium yet, but from what I've heard, I feel it might not be former Mayor Joe Riley's best accomplishment. Maybe he should have gone big or gone home on that project.

My spouse and I had reason to be on Killian Road today. It's changing. We drove into Columbia on Two Notch Road from Clemson Road, however, and OMG - SMH. It has gone down so much in just two years. I don't know what it would take for it to ever start to come back. It is downright depressing. The part of it that is closer to Taylor Street has improved some, but the rest is awful.

It's been bad for a long time. I don't think much has changed in two years.
