Will they wash my walls?

Yes, companies and caring workers like Dana, and he is a professional, who provide these kind of services are indispensable and invisible until we need them.

Jeebus! You people really need to learn how the world turns.

Jennifer: though you're new and don't know much at this point, you're doing valuable work (mucho re useful than the experts here), keep it up.

Yes, crony capitalism is alive and well in SC, but I give her a pass because she went to Clemson and I find her pleasing to the eye.

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

And the self congratulatory phrase "young professional" is wearing thin. Just when is the cut-off for young? 40? And when does a job rate "profession" status - is it the suit? If a plumber makes more than a MBA, is he/she a professional?

Touche'. But have you ever written anything productive or even positive? Your most recent 10 posts are sarcastic, sassy, and holier than thou. Has anyone in this world ever done or said anything that meets your approval?

Or are you just a sassy guy? Is that it? You're a sassy guy?

Getalife did you make that account just to call me and a few others out? Thanks! I'll let the irony slide because I'm honored.

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

2 months, 18 months. Who's counting?

(running on 4 years, up in here, almost 2650 posts - almost 2 per day! wow, I must have had NOTHING BETTER TO DO (well, largely, I didn't, but that's another story))

Tax incentives aren't exactly illegal, but they are often misunderstood - and almost always "secretive". Remember that there were members of the SC legislature saying they weren't sure of all of what Boeing was given to come here in 2009? That was a pretty extreme package of incentives (and was repeated earlier this year, as well).

There are different forms of incentives and some might be good and some might be bad, but it's hard for us mere mortals to know. Ms. Brown probably isn't in danger of losing her job because she only mentioned what most of us already know - that governments hand big business incentive deals and that's just the way it is.

You know, 'cause they're "secret" and all that. Because that's how businesses and governments operate in a "democracy" (or, if you insist, a "republic").

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

Geezus, what is this? The "smart asses who are perfect at their incredibly important and legitimate jobs and think they sound really smart by criticizing other people" bitch and moan comments section?

The girl said she's new to the job so she's in the learning phases...learning what Charleston has to offer, learning about industry, learning about tax incentives. It comes down to whether you want your city to have an office that makes these types of efforts or not. I see value in their efforts, it's clear you do not.

And I think your tax incentive conspiracy theories are a waste of time.

BTW, what type of person makes 713 comments to the Charleston City Paper in two months anyway? Sounds like somebody either unemployed or with a truly illegitimate job that makes it possible to sit at your computer, criticizing others all day.

And, now that she has exposed her boss for using our tax money for secret incentives; so much for her job.

If Paul Bowers wants to do something actually useful he could use the FOI act to find out just what kind of secrets this government agency is hiding.

Not only getting paid. Getting paid a lot more than she is apparently worth. Another Iot from the land of Id?

Re: “Keeping businesses happy so they stay in Charleston County

"as existing industry specialist"

"a really impressive manufacturing facility where I had no idea that we made that in Charleston"

You heard it here first, folks - this industry specialist is ignorant about industry. I tried to make a drinking game out of all the buzz words in this article, but I got drunk pretty fast, then cried a lot over the realization this person is getting paid to do what she considers to be a legitimate job.

Re: “High school educator leaves School of the Arts for a state with better pay

As a recent graduate of SOA, I'm saddened by Mr. Donnellon's decision to leave (though I completely understand the reasons behind it). As a future educator, I must admit that it is rather daunting to begin a career in teaching because (if you are a good teacher for the most part) you will usually have long hours and an inadequate salary. That being said, my comment to those who believe Mr. Donnellon is "whiny" or "greedy" is that he is by far one of the hardest working and most dedicated teachers I have ever had and I believe he deserves better wages. It is a shame that such a dedicated teacher as Mr. Donnellon (among others) would even have to consider relocating to be able to support a family. It is my opinion that if teachers had better salaries, they would hold themselves to higher standards.
