    Chris Hernstrom was brewing in the craft beer mecca of Bend, Ore., when an ad caught his eye: Want to live somewhere gorgeous and make beer for a small community? "It just seemed like an interesting challenge to come out to basically the exact opposite of Bend, some place where the brewing industry is still in its fledgling stages," Hernstrom says.

  2. 80 Years On, Dominicans And Haitians Revisit Painful Memories Of 'Parsley Massacre'

    10.07 / 13:42 etvradio.org Etvradio.org - South Carolina (SC)
    Even before Dominican dictator Rafael Trujillo carved it in blood, the 224-mile border dividing the island of Hispaniola between Haiti and the Dominican Republic was complicated. Tensions between the two countries stemmed back to a 19th century war. But in many ways, the border, which existed mostly on paper, was a notably seamless site: Children crossed back and forth freely to go to school on one side and home on the other. Sprawling cattle ranches spanned the divide, and Dominicans and…

    10.06 / 23:28 etvradio.org Etvradio.org - South Carolina (SC)
    Mar-a-Lago, President Trump's private club and winter White House in Palm Beach, Fla., is a casual place. And so, it seems, are any official records of those who visits him there. There "is no system for keeping track of presidential visitors at Mar-a-Lago, as there is at the White House complex," Special Agent Kim Campbell said in a legal filing . She said the Secret Service conducted a lengthy search, only to find "there is no grouping, listing, or set of records that would reflect…

  12. Consumer Watchdog Proposes New Rules On Payday Lenders

    10.06 / 18:18 etvradio.org Etvradio.org - South Carolina (SC)
    Many payday lenders could go out of business if rules made final this week by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau go into effect. But the changes face stiff headwinds from Republicans in Congress. One new rule would require payday and auto title lenders to determine whether a borrower can afford to repay in full within 30 days. That could thwart a business model that consumer advocates say relies on the rollover of unpaid loans with the accumulation of exorbitant fees and interest…

    When Kim Jong-nam was killed in what appeared to be a chemical weapons attack while transiting through an airport in Malaysia in February, it captured the world's attention . Eyes immediately looked toward his reclusive homeland and his younger half-brother, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who has been consolidating his power by ousting, even killing, possible rivals. But Kim, of course, didn't kill his half-brother himself. Two women were suspected of delivering the chemicals that…

    10.06 / 11:22 etvradio.org Etvradio.org - South Carolina (SC)
    "S" is for St. Mark's Parish. In the 1730s lowcountry planters began moving inland and petitioned to have the inland area separated into a new entity—Prince Frederick Parish. Beginning in 1750, an influx of new settlers from Pennsylvania and Virginia moved into Prince Frederick and soon the frontiersmen outvoted the lowcountry planters. In 1757, St. Mark's, the colony’s first—and largest-- backcountry parish was created as much to protect established lowcountry interests as to promote those…
