Thanks for letting people know, Kinsey. Many people were able to watch online.
Yes, the pumpkin patch will remain open in October as normal.
Will the pumpkin patch and festival still be on?
WOO HOO!!! SC claims 1.1% of the fastest growing businesses in the US... no wait.... SC is 2% of the states..... nevermind
"NoMo no more"?
NoMo never was except in the City Paper. I always felt it an interesting piece of arrogance that CP staff felt they had the right to name a neighborhood.
My suggestion would be Hipsterhaven
I always thought as Upper Morrison, or Cool Blow. Guess UPMO be out!
Instead of Upper Edge, I just like North Edge. A lot easier and rolls off the tongue. The Drum is also way better than NoMo. I wish as a city we steered away from recycled terminology that's slightly adapted to fit us: "Silicon Harbor", "NoMo"... it's a poor attempt and completely unoriginal. Let it die here and now.
Others to throw on the pile:
- Union Village - plays on the North/South and the decidedly different vibe up there as opposed to historical Charleston (more tech, culinary influence of North and West Coast, architecture, and commerce). Also, this area is a lot more of a melting pot between races, cultures, and especially ages in comparison to King St Corridor and south.
- Bridgeport - It's just by the Ravenel, the Naval port is part of this area (not as inspired but no one can argue with the applicable nature of the name)
Millions of dollars for a "temporary bike lane" !
Build a new bridge without obstructing traffic flow and connect bike lanes form South Windermere and Highway 61.
"It’s on a state road in the city and would be paid for with money from the county’s half-cent sales tax."
NO I-526, a NO vote on the sales tas referendum, NO bike lane
That's a stretch. I'm not for the bike lane at all, however...
The quoted section on the rules of order refer specifically to attendees of the meeting, in person, in the room. They do not in any way imply that the meeting cannot be attended via telephone. If they deem that the phone was an issue, then it's not Williams' vote that is at issue, it is the rest of the voters for violating the rules or order.
Awful awful awful. So tragic. And yet this post has 100 likes?
Great time to go out and buy a computer or really good Ipad, as with the schools being started this week, all the electronics stores, and the Staples, etc... are having some great sales. He could easily find a good lap top for under $500.00 I hope to see more of his stuff in the coming years.
We lit a candle http://www.fieldofcandles.com/Candle/Profile/54468 for Alison. LightACandle in her memory, too, or at least share this one.
Rest in power, Alison. Such a loss.
Hire Quintin. Or post his videos and pay for the rights. His interviews are wonderful. Follow him. I love how Quintin continues to prove that it's not the camera but the person behind it. Quintin is a great journalist and Charleston is lucky to have him. I hope more will seek out his work.
Can't love this anymore. Thank you Dustin for your well written story about Q - and whoever pitch this story as a cover deserves free hugs forever!
I first met Alison during the #FightForCofC movement. I've always swam against the tide, fought for what I believed in, worked in politics, etc. I originally went to USC as a cheerleader, and served in the US Navy. I still have that intense and stubborn pride to this day for both. I didn't have that for CofC when I moved back to Charleston to pursue a teaching degree... Until that movement... Until I met people like Alison. She had this glow about her. She exuded rays of positivity, and more. All of this even while battling this battle and battling another on the side. I am very saddened that we have lost such an amazing human being, but then again, I have a bit of happiness in knowing that the pain for her is gone. Rest in peace Alison! We'll see you again soon!
A huge loss for us all and a real lesson to me of how to live a life worth living. We are promised only the breath we are breathing now... Not five minutes or five days on. I think Alison understood that and lived that way: doing the things she needed to do and saying the things she needed to say. A tearful farewell and a prayer of thanksgiving for the life she lived and the love she gave!

While I didn't agree with many of Alison's beliefs, I have always respected her willingness to stand up and fight for causes she believed in. My full sympathy to her family and friends, and also to the rest of us because too often these days people are only willing to whine and complain about things. We need more Alisons with the balls to fight for everyone else
