Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

What a breathtakingly honest and humbling article. I really respected you as a professor while at Vandy. Seeing you become a mother now and facing what you're facing only increases my admiration of you. I don't believe I could be as poised as you've been. You're thought of and prayed for often. I do believe there is a heaven and I have faith I'll see you there!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, you have created a legacy for your family and friends that will always live in their hearts. You are brave, you are honest, and I know you are loved. I am only a follower of yours, but I've lost two very close people to brain tumors, and both of their passings were serene and calm. May your courage continue in those you love, and know that people you didn't know existed are thinking of you and sending their love. I hope the way you lived your life is a comfort for those who will feel your absence, and be reassured that your kindness will never cease to be. Laurie Notaro, Oregon

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Can't wait to see how much this reduces auto traffic now that everyone can ride their bikes to work. Hopefully City Council is adding additional bike racks to handle what's sure to be a massive influx.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Thank you for sharing your life with us, Alison! Tracy Moore has shared your columns with friends here in California, and they're always amazing. Sending you, Maybelle, and your family all of the beauty, peace, and love I can muster. Your razor-sharp analysis, your kindness, and your generosity all endure.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, It has been years since we have seen each other but I have read several of your blog entries. I came to know about them through Curtis Young's post on Facebook. Each made me smile and tear up at the same time. This column was the same experience. I smiled when you mentioned your mom and it brought back memories of your family at church (and seeing you all walk together to church). I know your daughter will be so proud to say that you are her mom. I am proud to say that I know you. Many prayers for you, Maybelle, Brian and all your family

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

The study actually did monitor traffic volume on the James Island connector. It found the following: "The traffic volumes and magnitude of morning peak hour traffic on the James Island Connector were more consistent across the three periods evaluated, which indicates that there was not a shift of traffic from the Legare Bridge to the James Island Connector Bridge in order to avoid the lane closure."

The complete study is available here:

Re: “This is Charleston's opportunity to lead by example — once again

Wow!
"I am not offended, that's for weaklings."
along with smirking condescension, hey, just add "If you don't understand. I'll scream a little louder" and you've got the Citadel trifecta.

Hi Alison, Said a prayer for you at Ralph's donuts. First time back in Cookeville in 7 years. As you say, until we meet again.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Hey kids, just read on governing.com that of all 50 states SC is 4th in per-capita bicyclist deaths over the last three years. So here's our chance for Charleston to make us #1 in another category!

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

Uh-oh.

Get ready for the comments to be closed for no good reason at all.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Unfortunately, in this case, I believe that somebody will die. That bridge isn't very safe in morning rush-hour traffic in a car, much less a bike.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

They didn't due a study on the traffic onto the Connector during this trial period. It was backed up all the way to Harbor View Rd every weekday, because drivers on Folly Road avoided the traffic going towards the Ashley Bridge. There are 300 new apartments right where they want to make it one lane. REALLY?
