Re: “Martha Lou's second location will open Wed. April 5

Let me start by saying 'The food was good'. frankly some of the best fried chicken I have had.

However, I had a bad experience at Martha Lou's.The 'Lunch' was $14.00 which includes a meat and three sides. Different options are available on different days. Includes a drink. That is a lot of food.

We arrived at 11:30am and, apparently, the meat had not finished cooking, which meant a longer than anticipated wait. No one ever took our drink orders, and so we had nothing to drink while waiting. When the waitress finally took our order, we got the meat and three sides (Fried Chicken, red rice, baked macaroni, and Lima beans). I then asked for a side piece of cornbread to go with my Lima beans, on the menu for 75 cents. The meal arrived on a styrofoam platter and was very hot and tasty. The sweet tea was Lipton instant tea with lemon. I really do not like lemon in my tea, but the tea was cool and I was thirsty, so I said nothing of it.

When it came time to pay my bill, I was expecting to pay $14.00 plus the 75 cents for my cornbread, plus tax. Instead I was told my bill was $21.00. It seems that at Martha Lou's they include the 3 CHEAPEST sides as part of your $14.00 meal, and then charge you the full price for the most expensive side as an extra cost. So instead of my 75 cent piece of cornbread, I was charged extra $5.50 for the baked macaroni. No offense, but for $5.50 I would expect a much larger portion of macaroni than the two spoon fulls you get.

That said, I am willing to try the new location, because, as I said, the food was very good. I will not be ordering cornbread though :-)

Re: “Two years after Walter Scott’s death, what has changed?

Guilt or innocence has yet to be determined for Walter Scott's killer, however, no one ever seems willing to address the factors that lead up to nearly 100% of these shootings.

Fighting with an officer.
Running from an officer.
Drug possession.
Outstanding warrants.
Previous arrests.
Commission of a crime.

While none of these initially should lead to a death sentence, it is these facts that initiate the encounter that ultimately leads to most police shootings. People need to understand you do not fight the law on the street, you fight in court. That may not be your preferred option, but it will not lead to your being shot in the street.

When the officer says 'Stay there', do not flee, approach the officer, or go somewhere else.

When the officer says, 'You're under arrest', you cooperate. The time to question the arrest is at the station, not in the street, and preferably with a lawyer present.

When the officer asks a question, answer it, even if it is , 'I do not know'.

Be respectful, even if the officer is not. His disrespect can be brought up to the judge later, or at the station if you wish to file a charge against the arresting officer. If you do not resist, and cooperate with the officer,; then the officer has no justification to use force.

Respect is a two way street. For someone to be respectful to you, you must be respectful to them. Lack of respect generates anger. Anger in you, anger in the officer, and this anger leads to violence, which can lead to injury or death. Be respectful to the officer. It costs you nothing. It shows you have a higher character, and may even get you a warning instead of a ticket.

Re: “For what it's worth, Thomas Ravenel thinks John Tecklenburg is the nation's worst mayor

Now wait a minute y'all, lets get to the bottom of this mystery. Tommy - you mean they will not allow you to cut your grass, trim your shrubbery, wash your sidewalk, plant flowers, power wash, or repaint your shutters? Because that's "maintaining" your property. What exactly wont they let you do? Reopen the Hamitic Hotel? Paint the place emerald green? Make the place into a bar or restaurant? Perhaps they won't let you "renovate" your property the way you want to, due to historic preservation. I've seen them stop plenty of us from "renovations" for preservation reasons, but I have yet to see them stop anyone from "maintaining" ones property. If they are actually preventing property maintenance on the Faber House please feel free to share so we can all take umbrage with them.

Re: “Charleston Planning Commission rejects plan to curb hotel growth on peninsula

Here's an idea: let 'em build all of the hotels they want. It won't be long before the peninsula has so many vacancies that some of the hotels will close, then the city has pre-made shells to create low-income housing.

the really sad part of the story is that he thinks people care about what he has to say...and he's right.

Re: “For what it's worth, Thomas Ravenel thinks John Tecklenburg is the nation's worst mayor

I was born and raised on Johns Island. Lived there for 27 years until I went into the military. I am so sorry that the poor little rich drunk pervert can't maintain his family "historic" property. Others of us whine with you...NOT!
That property and others were built by slaves and yet you are still whining. Put down the liquor and get off your butt and correct what needs to be done to it.

But didn't the article say that your brother owns the property? I'm confused.

Yes, I am quite sure that is the case. The City is against you maintaining your historic property. Sounds legit.
