With a spectacular 2015 NBA Finals in the rear-view mirror, it's officially time for everyone to gear their hoops-related energies toward the draft. By this time of year, most of the major draft storylines are well-established. We know the March Madness heroes, the international prospects are less of a mystery, and the general mock draft hierarchy has taken shape. It's time to break down some bold predictions and draft-night incidents brewing under the radar. Most prognosticators foresee the New York Knicks selecting Duke forward Justise Winslow, Kentucky center Willie Cauley-Stein or even Chinese League product Emmanuel Mudiay. Those would all be solid picks for Phil Jackson and Co. , but what if they want something better than solid. Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis has arguably the highest ceiling of anyone projected to land in the No. 4 range. Jackson has already talked about free agency as the primary rebuilding tool for the franchise, so New York should feel gutsy enough to gamble on Porzingis. Knowing how much Porzingis is in demand, Jackson could even select him with the hopes of generating better offers.
65 mph winds creating freak waves that slam cars in Chicago and an early snowfall in the Sierra Nevada: Wacky weather greets a change of season as clocks go back this weekend 23-foot waves entirely cut off Chicago's Lakeshore Drive and at one... Winds gusting up to 65 mph caused Lake Michigan waves to slam into the Chicago shoreline, sending water onto part of Lake Shore Drive. The waves which were up to 23-feet high slowed traffic and prompted the cancellation of a Halloween attraction. At one point cars were in a single-file line as waves crashed across the three lanes closest to the water. At one point, waves reached the southbound side, causing traffic in both directions to stop.
At that time the area was known as Cayce Crossing, named for Billy Cayce, a prominent citizen. West Columbia originally was known as New Brookland after all the creeks in the area before adopting its current name in 1936. It began as a village mainly for textile mill workers. Both cities struggled with periodic flooding from the Congaree River until the Lake Murray dam upstream was completed 84 years ago. Chapin plays a much larger role than its population of 1,700 suggests, serving as the commercial hub of an area of more than 50,000 residents on the north side of Lake Murray. The areas are popular with residents who want a quasi-rural lifestyle, yet are close to downtown Columbia. We love our zoo and we follow debates over at the State House because — let’s face it — that’s a zoo, too. But for all the contradictions, Columbia is a great place to call home. The central business district extends from the Vista to the west, Main Street in the middle and Five Points to the east. Main Street has made its own comeback in recent years, energized by new restaurants and shops, a Saturday.
