I want to change my vote from NoMo to Upper Edge
Ima, Aside from there being no other viable alternatives until now, I'd go out on a limb and say that part of the reason why NoMo has stuck around like it has is that 1) it's pretty silly and fun to say and 2) because there was so much outrage about it. NoMo obviously wouldn't be the name of an area of town that extends well beyond the short Morrison Drive corridor (and even smaller North Morrison Drive area), which is why the city created the survey. There'll be a lot more going on in this area of town in the coming years and I suspect a name will come about organically as it continues to grow. We don't have a dog in the fight besides not wanting a crummy name. But feel free to conspire away.
As I commented on the original column last week, " I always felt it an interesting piece of arrogance that CP staff felt they had the right to name a neighborhood."
So I guess, technically, they've changed course asking their readers to name it, although CP is still pulling the strings.
Well this sucks. Sounds like they'll be trying to move the strip clubs, prostitutes, drug dealers and pimps out of the area. This is evil white gentrification! I say we import some of those bus loads of illegal aliens that Obama strategically buses around to districts to artificially build a Democrat majority (the new gerrymander). Or we can bring in some Syrian refugees to rape women, throw rocks at gays, and then invite their 12 year old Muslim brides over later since marrying little underage girls is widespread and common in this beautiful diverse Islamic culture (I'm like soooo tolerant and diverse and stuff *smug smug*) when we aren't mutilating women's genitals as is custom in Muslim culture and accepted by smug, tolerant liberal democrats because we at least pretend to care about women even though Democrats opposed the 19th amendment and tried to prevent women from having the right to vote to begin with (darn those Republicans!).
Charleston likes to spend millions of dollars debating bridges and roads instead of actually building them. See 526. I vote no to all this. I've rode a bike across the West Ashley bridge as it is. It's manageable. My commute to work is tolerable. I didn't choose to live too far out in the boonies. And unless Councilman Rodney Williams is physically disabled, he should actually take his @$$ to the council meetings and be there physically. The rest of us don't get to phone into our jobs. Show up! I know Barack Hussein Obama gets to phone into his job from the 9th hole at the golf course at Martha Vineyards while people are drowning in Louisiana or getting their heads cut off by ISIS thugs he and Hillary armed, but Charlestonians expect more from our politicians.
If you don't want gender to be a consideration in the application process, nor race, then stop asking for such information. The government tries to collect this information to use against us. Opt out. It's collected by race hustlers like Barack Obama. Gender isn't a choice. Nor is your race. 99.9% of people are born either male or female and their reproductive organ is the indication. Only mentally ill liberals believe that your gender is an emotional choice. The reality is that it is determined by your anatomy. Very, very few people are born with both organs or with hormone imbalances so severe that they are not clearly one nor the other. It seems that the Democrats are the ones who do not believe in science and reality.
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.
