Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

very well written and honest. I moved away from Charleston, from my home state, in search of a place where people are trying to do better. it's always hard to come back to see that things are still so backwards there.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

You covered a lot in that one.....If we have so many problems, why are people pouring here? We have always done the best we can and will continue to do so for ALL our citizens and visitors. I am an optimist and believe our best is yet to come. I would same the same....just take a breath and let Charleston evolve a bit at a time. Heck , we are only 346 years old! Remember our Motto."AEdes Mores Juraque Curat"...."She guards her buildings, customs and laws."

Re: “Stegelin: What do you have to lose?

It's gonna be a landslide in November. Dems will take back the Senate for sure, and maybe even the House.

We have been called the "friendliest city" not the "perfect city". I don't believe any municipality could earn that award.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

Totally agree, and found our time in Charleston riddled with guilt... friendliness is not enough when a huge amount of your neighbors are in desperate need, Friendliness in not enough in the face of public schools systems failing kids and I would love to see more honest journalism expose the actual needs in the greater Charleston area to create a fulfilling large community of citizens that all benefit from the commercial/tourist opportunistic accolades that may bring tax revenue and help local business -- but Charleston's layered levels of neglected sectors need focus and care and cure and the entire community will benefit...ignore this type of journalism and the problems at your peril...

Re: “Both sides to settle in Michael Slager’s lawsuit against police group

This is an excellent development... This company had no right to deny him benefits. When officer Slager is acquitted I hope the city is prepared for THEIR lawsuit. Maybe they can get part of the Six Million from the family back to pay Slager's award.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

Well Stephanie, if you really think that way, maybe you should do something to actively change it instead of passively writing hateful articles. For one, I smile and say hi to people all the time, I help lost looking people on the street, and have offered rides to more than a few people in town.
