It's time for the good old boys to realize that women like Susan have qualifications and can be an asset on the board. But alas, this is South Carolina which seems to be first in backward thinking.
Downtown is just annoying now. The new hotels going up look like Any-Where-Ville U.S.A. No imagination.
Because what we need is keep those vacant parking lots and industrial blightsores? Right? (I'm not saying all development is on vacant/underutilized land, though)
The Peninsula had over 70,000 people in 1960, now it has around 35,000. More building should be done, so more people can work and live in the Peninsula (not just college students), not in sprawlville that is much of the metro region.
Mark Brandenburg did not go visit the victim without Rosa knowledge. Then the email from him to higher-ups put them on notice. Looks like a cover-up to me. Attorneys do what they are asked to do. That's what they are supposed to do. I don't think he is the only culpable person in this fiasco.
By the way, since there is not a "camp" anymore, why will they institute a child protection program and hire a child protection employee??? Is this to protect cadets?? Aren't they or shouldn't they already be protected??
I personally don't want anyone dumping chemicals on my head who doesn't know what they are doing and I expect my government to make insure that I don't have to personally make sure that the people who are in "the business" are qualified to do their job.
Billy, I don't know where you get your idea that paramedics need less training than cosmetologists do. By my calculation to get a degree from TTC as a paramedic one needs over 3000 hours education and training.
Oh, come on now, Mat. Who needs data when you can just make shit up? Then again, most of the people that actually think teaching abstinence alone will solve all the problems also believe that the Earth is only 6000 years old. Science, data, and studies are all evil, I tell ya what.
"With the CDC reporting that almost 75% of teens (17 and younger) nationally surveyed are not having sex...."
"56.5 percent of teens in high school in S.C. say they’ve had sex at least once. The national average is 47.4 percent."
You know there are adults that are easily manipulated into just taking the condom off and finding themselves in sticky situations (no pun intended). What more the kids?
I mean be honest. The kids who are the STI statistics are the ones who started off the sexual encounter with a condom on, but were coerced or manipulated into taking it off for a more "pleasurable" or "natural" experience. Who is going to be more at risk of contracting an STI? A kid who is never taught the value of abstinence and the parent is ok with the child having sex with numerous people just as long as there is intention to use condoms and birth control? Or the kid who is taught to save sex for their spouse? Statistics tell me that the person who saves his/her self for their spouse will be less likely to contract an STI. (And don't try bringing up unfaithful marriages that may have resulted in someone contracting an STI because that is not the norm.) Our kids deserve to know that it is possible to AVOID sexual relations until they get married so as to avoid disease and unwanted pregnancy, but instead Planned Parenthood needs to make money off of disease, birth control, and abortion.
The kids are not getting STD's because they took a class emphasizing abstinence. They got the STD's because they started out with a condom like their sex ed teacher said to, but then boyfriend says "baby it doesn't feel as good with it on, I wanna feel you, I love you." Teach your kids to AVOID the risks instead of trying to merely reduce the risk. Common sense.
Almost all of these comments are obviously from the Planned Parenthood Network and/or their supporters. Ya'll need to get your facts straight and stop repeating the mantras from Planned Parenthood. They make money off of sex, so it is a conflict of interest for them to be pushing sex education on middle and high school students!
Since Heritage Keepers has never been taught at Wando High School, it must have been the "safe sex" education taught that was incorrect and had medically inaccurate information. Suicide is not even part of Heritage Keepers curriculum. Even the teacher from Fort Moultrie in the article admits that East Cooper schools have teachers willing to teach middle and high schools "safe sex", including the instructions on dental dams for oral sex.
Also, research conducted by Doug Kirby, a Comprehensive Sex Ed advocate, shows that students are no less likely to use condoms if they hear an abstinence message. Condom education and condoms are everywhere. With regards to Comprehensive Sex Education, there is no "normal emphasis on abstinence" unless you mean telling students at the beginning of sex class that abstinence is the safest and then moving on into "safe sex" with detailed instructions on how to use dental dams for oral sex, and acting out erotic sex play.
The Heritage Foundation (not Heritage Keepers) did a study (http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2…) on high school students that were not having sex compared to those having sex and using protection. The students not having sex, at all, were far more likely to do well, graduate on time and go to college. The sexually active students, even those using condoms or taking contraception, were far more likely to not graduate and/or not go to college. So, academic achievement is VERY connected to sexual activity because sex brings drama and it is hard to focus on academics if involved in sex and the hook-up culture. So, if any of you are interested in students graduating and doing well in their academics so that they are not on welfare and draining your wallets, you had better stop condoning and pushing sex on these teens.
With the CDC reporting that almost 75% of teens (17 and younger) nationally surveyed are not having sex, it would seem that the adults in their lives would be supportive of abstinence rather than condemning it and pushing them into sexual activity to match with what is coming out of Planned Parenthood, the Department of Education, the media and Hollywood.
A crime was committed. Someone in the Citadel brass was apparently aware of it and failed to report it to the police. Not a cover up? More like obstruction of justice if not misprision of a felony. That someone should be in jail right along with Reville.
there are more empty houses in the USA then there are homeless you do the math !!!
more empty houses then homeless ...you do the math !?!
Did any of these great minds consider the traffic implications of cramming 14 multiple bedroom units onto a street that is already narrow and crowded as it is?
Where will these 20-30 new vehicles park? How much worse will the intersection at Simons and King St. get?
And what considerations have been made for the current residents of this neighborhood who for the most part won't be moving into hip homes starting in the low $200s?
It sounds to me like the diverse perspectives at these charrettes wasn't quite diverse enough.
Please don't destroy my neighborhood. I moved up here to get away from the likes of St Phillips and Cannon streets. Plus, I really hope the developer is considerate of the current residents, many of whom have lived in this part of town for generations, and doing things that support/give back to the community. What plans do they have other than to cram as many homes as possible on this lot in the name of making money?
Design by committee insures there is no brilliance.
there may be a way to create consumer licensing boards to replace the expense of state regulators on hair & cosmetology industry... TURNING IT OVER TO THE INCOMPETENT AND THEOCRATIC DHEC is NOT the way to go.... DHEC PUBLISHES an insane booklet backed by a law requiring all women seeking abortions to "hold in their hands for one hour".... as if forcing women to read would lead to publications in Spanish or audio talking books for the blind.... this book includes the possibility one might die from pregnancy but does not list the most common deadly condition of ECTOPIC embryonic goo growing outside the uterus likely rupturing a fallopian tube leading to sepsis and death. But the government is promoting fake clinics and religious adoption businesses. As for hair, I'd like all barbers and hairstylists taught and inspected to use clean equipment that I won't get germs from the previous clients. Go figure you idiot gov't slashers like Nimrata Haley and the "conservatives" here in City Paper
As a licensed, practicing Esthetician, I am allowed to pierce the skin with a sterile lancet. Blood generally becomes present at the site. I know the difference between sanitizing and sterilizing. I know the OSHA guidelines for blood born pathogens. I do Brazilian waxing. I DO NOT "double dip". Do you know why that's important? We aren't worried about competition, there's plenty of it out there already. Most people don't realize how involved certain aspects of the cosmetology field are, but don't trivialize it when you don't know it.
You're right, JLL. Absolutely - one of the top reasons we moved from where we were, to where we are, was to get away from HOA's Nazi totalitarianism (namely CMG). Hell, I'd take Spruill Ave over getting a ticket because someone saw yesterday's paper in my driveway today. Keep up the good work. As an engineer/designer in the lowcountry myself, I'll testify that if anyone is looking for a great realtor/builder, I highly recommend Jennifer!
