Re: “The Agenda: Graham skeptical of Obamacare repeal; Pols settle on 12-cent gas tax bump; Tebow boosting Fireflies

1) I hope Gov. McMaster doesn't veto the gas tax increase.
2) S.C. State students are objecting to Gov. McMaster because he belongs to an all-white country club. These same students that go to a 95%+ black school. Seems like a bit of a double standard.

Re: “Charleston City Council set to discuss temporary apartment moratorium on James Island

There are some obtainable solutions to relieving traffic congestion on Folly Road. First, build the I-526 extension. Second, widen Riverland Drive (and possibly re-route it on the southern end so it's not so awkward with Grimball Street) from it's beginning up to Central Park Road. Maybe even widen it all the way to Maybank although I don't think this would help much. These are very realistic solutions and they would help with the traffic on Folly Road a lot.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Again, I say, if you want old Mt. P, come to Edenton, NC. Bring your businesses and families here. You will never look back. I know I'm not!!

Re: “Severed human foot found at Charleston City Marina

I knew I left that damn thing somewhere in town, been hopping around for the last couple of days. Where can I pick it up, I have the other shoe.

Re: “Severed human foot found at Charleston City Marina

Guy ask me the other day if I could give him a hand tying his boat up, I told him to pull up another foot or so. Maybe he took it to literally.

Mt Pleasant has absolutely no charm. It's become sterile and impotent.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

This is a great article. I truly wish that other journalist and news outlets would focus as much time and resources on focusing on issue pertaining to growth instead of simply acknowledging that it is occurring. The cost of living is unprecedented. The median home cost is seriously out of this world and the constant drove of Ohio / Michigan folks has destroyed any small town feel the TOMP may have had. There is a paradigm shift when a place that was always known as the most desirable place to live is now the least desirable. This is becoming the definition of the Charleston area. A sad, yet true definition.

Re: “Snakebite reports are up in S.C. and increased flooding and development could be to blame

one of the puzzles that I'm confronted with is this: the rise of the sea level. just 15,000. years ago the coast line here in Charleston was 50 miles further out to the east. when y6ou calculate the rate of the ocean moving in to where it is now the ocean would have to move in .0478 ft. per day ( 262,000 ft/50m. divided by 5,475,000 days in 15,000 years) = .0478ft./day. so therefore if the same trend was continuing assuming there was not an increase or decrease in the rate of ocean insurgence upon the land,well in the just the last 20 years or 7300 days the ocean would have had to move in shore ( .0478ft/day x 7300 days = 348.94 ft. or in 80 years , many people here in Charleston can certainly remember back that far ,well that means the ocean water would have had to come in 1,395.76 ft. just 200 ft from a 1/4 of a mile!! think about it

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Anyone that says that what is going in Mt.Pleasant is even remotely planned is out of their mind. It is utter chaos! That's the only way to describe what's happening in Mt.Pleasant. You can call us South Myrtle Beach.

Re: “Why didn't any white officials attend the Nehemiah Action?

Okay, so the white leadership won't deal with the nice church folks from CAJM. Who will they deal with, as they will eventually deal with someone.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Linda Page I cannot express how disappointed I am. Development is one thing but unchecked development that threatens our natural resources, fishing, wildlife, is not ok. You should know better but I suspect there's money to be made if you keep saying yes to developers. You may want to listen to your constituents.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Ms Barrett, your opinions are suspect since you make money off of unchecked development. Mount Pleasant is only so big and you cannot cram people into every square inch... That makes it unpleasant. It is NOT nostalgia that we long for, it's some breathing room and a return to the things that we so love about Mount Pleasant. Keep cramming people in and it will become like any other crappy place on the map with overcrowding in schools, too much traffic and no sense of community. Why don't you take yourself back to where you came from instead of trying to change our town to your liking?

Good commentary. I was there, too, saw the same things, and was deeply disappointed in our elected officials with pale complexions.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Cities and people are the same, growing old is a bitch, but pineing about the past and complaining about the present doesnt do you much good. Mt. Plastic has been an enthusiastic cheerleader in its promotion and growth, a way that is rather alien to us over on "the other islands". It projects treadiness and then seems shock when Ohio and Michigan carpetbaggers are drawn to it.

Re: “Escaping to Charleston's mother colony, Barbados

At least a few readers have spotted some of the mistakes in this article, like the capitol of the Island and the side affected by the Saharan dust, but some of the history is accurate, which is great, but the comment about Fox news and the people of South Carolina is certainly uncalled for.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Linda Page. Why does the comprehensive plan change so often at the whim of developers? You have lost all credibility
