Well, when I first moved here from Manhattan, I kind of freaked when I saw those poor horses in this heat. In Manhattan, the horses by Central Park are ordered to be taken off the streets when in hits 90! And the sun is not as strong up there as it is down here. I did take a few rides here and spoke with the carriage riders and asked about how they treated the horses because I was very concerned about them. They were kind enough to explain how they rotated them and brought me to the stables and showed me how they cooled them off on a continuous basis. They get sprayed with cool water after each trip. The horses are worked for only 3 weeks at a time and then sent back up to a farm and hv 3 weeks off. However, I am glad they decided to do this new practice. Everyone had told me I would get used to the heat here. Sorry, I hv been here 9 years, and I still cannot deal with the heat here. I stay inside during the summer. It is the humidity that is the killer.
Kathleen Wilson said she wasn't ready to take a position on whether a development moratorium was the right move.
Recall her or vote her out !
The paaaage of this cynical, cruel ordinance gives Charleston the dubious honor of enacting the HARSHEST temperature ordinance in the nation. The temperature gauge is located FOUR stories atop a hotel. Not where the horses work. No other City in the US requires FOUR readings.
As for the cost of the Ad, part of the Animal Society's mission is to speak out for animals when they see abuse. Surely the Counciman understands that. And while we are at it, ask the Councilman how much the City pays the Animal Society to accept stray animals off the streets of Charleston? Maybe there needs to be a course for Councilmen on City obligations met and unmet before remarks are hurled at public meetings.
To the "all those people hollering" guy: No one can address every animal situation in the world. It takes money, time and volunteers. I am a volunteer for animals at Charleston Animal Society. You can help, too, by volunteering. And you can, as an individual, make a formal complaint when you see animal neglect or abuse. It will definitely be addressed. "Saving one animal won't change the world, but it will change the world for that one animal." Do what you can to make a difference.
All these people hollering about what's best for the carriage horses just cracks me up! Why don't they holler about the fancy-pants show horses out at the big horse show on Seabrook Island every summer? Those horses come from all over & spend their days sweating bullets while they jump over huge fences at breakneck paces.
Let's not forget the cute little ponies being shown off by their cute little riders. The ponies are also sweating up a storm, as are the kids.
Now THERE'S a bunch of critters we should be looking into!
Oh reeeeaaalllyy? Too little, too late. The Charleston Planning Commission is waaaay late to the party.
Legalize recreational use. Far less dangerous than alcohol, which IS the deadliest drug known to mankind and IS the "gateway" drug to more dangerous chemical (man-made, not natural) based drugs and prescription drugs, all of which can lead to overdoses, including alcohol. Marijuana, by comparison, has no overdose threshold, leaves the user cognizant, if not a little over-elated, but in control of their faculties. TV really is not representative of it's true affects as they just want to satisfy a viewing audience. It is a vaso-diolater reducing blood pressure while lessening work for the heart. It is a happy substance and the only anger and violence that is a result of marijuana is the "so-called" drug war - the illegality of it. Marijuana was made illegal and into a schedule 1 drug back in the 60s so the "prudes" could control, through legal intimidation; the "liberal hippies" and the "brothers and sisters", and had nothing whatsoever to do with danger of its use. Instead the use was a danger to controlling the masses, which is how our political system works - all about power and control and not about what is BEST for our citizens.
He is a genius...
Will he be signing with the Philadelphia Eagles at the completion of his sentence?
Ron liberate, some of us do.
Would be nice if we took violence against women as seriously as we do violence against dogs.
Why is it to run concurrently with his weapons & drug charges? Essentially, he received no sentence for animal abuse. I assume the judge could have had the abuse charge be served consecutively? If so, total BS!
I can't comment on any factory connection, so please stop asking even though it's on the list of prepared questions I gave you.
Is there video or audio of this talk somewhere on line?
Harry Truman once said "you can't make money in politics unless you're a crook" or, maybe it was "an honest public servant can't become rich in politics"
Great step in the right direction, but a $100 fine for tickets people are making literally thousands on scalping for single events isn't enough. Should be mandatory 30 days in jail. Once again, glad someone is taking a step in the right direction in helping preserve an amazing music scene. Thank you Senator Matthews.
Sounds like racism against whites.
Survivalist communities? Ok, whatever your god told you must do, jump on it, as long as you don't involve tax-payer funds.
Jim Deminted, more like. Fomenting anger and mistrust in our NON-partisan Justice and Intelligence communities is anti-American and unpatriotic. Perhaps he, too, is complicit in collusion or at least complicit in supporting collusion.

Fascinating! It's almost like a wizard from the1800's reached through, in infinite jest, to articulate whimsically through Dustin. Huzzah!
