Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg's honeymoon period is over

As John Tecklenburg begins his second year as Mayor, Dwayne Green's question, "Where do we go from here?," is a timely and fair one. In racial relations, the Mayor has the opportunity to make progress that's often been promised -- well before Tecklenburg took office -- but not delivered. The Illumination Project for better police-community relations was inaugurated under former mayor Riley's administration, but Tecklenburg can be instrumental in making this undertaking an action program that delivers results. As one part of IP, Police Chief Mullen is leading the way in the Charleston Police Department building a first-class, interactive website that really engages the community. We need much more data and other information about crime and prevention, and the website should be the place for the local citizenry to find everthing and use it to help develop solutions that make police and community true partners. If Tecklenburg can make the Illumination Project an action program that delivers results, he'll have gone a long way to answering Dwayne Green's New Year question.

CORRECTION: It's not the old junk n jive location (that's next door to Oak barrel). It's the old Andilinis "corporate headquarters" and most recently warehouse for Charleston's ahoe Company.

This may be the most self-unaware white persony thing I've ever read - and I've been reading City Paper for many years.

Way to really condemn this asshole, Cid. Domestic violence is not partisan. But only one political party consistently makes an effort to be hypocritical in telling other people how to live their lives while engaging in the behaviors they publicly claim to abhor.

Philip must have been served some sour grapes the last time he went to a rich white investor-owned restaurant.

It's not left or right, it's just the criminal justice system doing what it's supposed to do. If he's convicted then I hope he's punished severely.

Whenever you expose the obvious hypocrisy of a rethuglican, they start screaming "leftist rag". So I guess any "rags" that report FACTS are "leftist". So facts are "leftist" and "fake" is "right"? NOW it all makes sense!

He just seems to want to return to a time when America was great.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

Please tell me about any local coffee shops that stay open into the night like Starbucks? The only ones I know of nowadays close their doors pretty early. I'd happily support local coffee shops over corporate ones, but I'm having a difficult time finding ones that fit my schedule.

Jeeze Mr. Hammond, are you saying that you agree that Mr. Corley's behavior? That punching a woman in the face, pointing a gun at her and threatening her to kill her, plus allegedly cheating, is acceptable and people that don't agree are leftist? What reason do you have to try to disparage this paper? I hope you would not punch a women in the face or threaten to kill someone with that gun in your picture. Mr. Corley does not sound like a good person to me.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

You are eating at the wrong places. When you buy a glass of wine you are not just paying for that glass. You are also paying for the electric bill, the storage space required, the employees that order the wine pour and wash your dirty glass which also includes the water bill. You are also confusing what restaurants should stop doing as to what customers should stop doing. And if you think all shrimp and grits are the same you absolutely do not know what you are talking about. If you plan on coming to my workplace you better make a reservation at least 6-8 weeks out during the summer make it 12. You don't get that kind of business for serving average food. As far as recognition for teachers doctors and scientists there are awards and recognition you just choose to write about something else and not them.

Oh really? Then I guess you prefer the alternative of caring for, housing, feeding, and healing expensive horses.....the glue factory.

Re: “We owe the hospitality industry more than parking tickets

Here's a hint, genius. Park in places where it's legal and you won't get a ticket.

Works for the rest of us when we're downtown.
