Re: “UPDATED: Sidi Limehouse reacts to closure of his Rosebank Farms produce stand

Why does the Town need to find him another location? He is a private business person who rented space. When ownership changes sometimes those agreements go away. He could have bought the property himself or started looking for a new location when he found out the property was on the market.

Re: “UPDATED: Sidi Limehouse reacts to closure of his Rosebank Farms produce stand

This whole sneaky deal sucks. Sidi has been a fixture going on and off Kiawah for years. TOKI owes him some simple common courtesy despite what they may believe. I bet they will try to find a decent location for him in the area due to squawking already going on. They better let him bring the chickens wherever he goes as the chickens rule! As for the ganja trouble Sidi had many moons ago, I also have a few reefer infractions in my distant past as well #sosuemebigdeal. Who cares? Its now legal for recreational use in Washington and Colorado, meaning Sidi and I were recreational pioneers.

Re: “¡Ask a Mexican! has a taco lesson for us all

I'm in Atlanta, where we're drowning in authentic taquerias (I'm not complaining tho) and yes, smaller is authentic. I pay $1 - $1.25 each so it's easy to get a nice variety on one plate. They usually come 'naked' (meat only) and you add a cilantro/onion mix, radishes, pickled things, salsas, limes, etc. to your liking.

Fish Pimp, until you've ridden across that sidewalk at rush hour you're really misinformed.

Ron Liberte, Don't be mad that I look good in spandex and you don't.

Katie, Nice article, even if your organization stupidly opposes finishing 526.

Re: “South Carolina's war against 'equal protection under the law'

VaSteve: how can you equate 12 years of Reconstruction with the approximately 250 years of slavery plus the approximately 90 years post Reconstruction -- until the Civil Rights Act -- when African Americans were treated as fourth class citizens? If it makes you feel better, I think "your side" got the better deal.

I learned that "two wrongs don't make a right" in Sunday school. You must have been ironing your white robe that day and missed the class.

We need to remember Wilson's waste of taxpayer dollars when we go to the polls on November 4.

Re: “¡Ask a Mexican! has a taco lesson for us all

And yeah City Paper, how dare you write so much about an internationally famous chef who released a cookbook and opened a brand new restaurant in the space of two weeks. NOBODY's interested in that news.

Re: “¡Ask a Mexican! has a taco lesson for us all

Labor costs are a valid point, particularly in light of Raskin's article in the P&C about fair labor violations. The biggest fines were of Mexican joints. I think she missed the story on that one. She could have cracked the taco pricejacking epidemic!

Re: “Upper King must secede from the City of Charleston

Re: “Bicyclists and pedestrians should not be treated like second-class citizens

All that I asked for was data that substantiate your claims. You are either unwilling or unable to provide such data and therefore one must conclude that the needs of your clients are not legitimate causing you to have to lie about it. Just repeating that the Ashley River bridge is unsafe over and over does not make it so.

You have not provided one shred of evidence to convince anyone that the changes you are arrogantly demanding are even necessary.

Re: “Three weeks into radiation and chemo and I feel like shit

Been through all that years ago..(surgery, radiation, chemo). It's most likely the steroids you are receiving causing the rage!!! Using foul language isn't helping the situation any. Try some deep breathing exercises and get yourself a support group!

Re: “UPDATED: Sidi Limehouse reacts to closure of his Rosebank Farms produce stand

Very sad, and I hope Sidi finds land to lease because year after year this is the best CSA to get food from and I'll be sad to miss it in 2015. While progress and development are inevitable I believe it is important to take the proper steps to preserve what has long made Charleston such a desirable place to visit. Rosebank Farms is certainly of those pieces.

Re: “Upper King must secede from the City of Charleston

Paris, I agree with some of your points. Specifically that this moratorium takes attention away from the real pressing issues of public transportation (which the city desperately needs), and that the Charleston City Council seems hell-bent on keeping Charleston stuck as a small, backwards, quaint village instead of moving forward.

I don't agree that the decision should be left entirely to business owners. Business owners are notoriously terrible at making decisions that are in the best interests of everybody instead of just themselves. The hallmark of an effective government is that it is able to balance the needs of the community with the needs of the economy. I've lived next to bars before. Sometimes it was great and everyone was respectful and the neighborhood clicked really well. Other times, the only thing that kept the bar from staging concerts on their patios at 3am (this was in NYC, where bars stay open until a reasonable hour - 4am) was noise ordinances. The moratorium was an extreme solution, and one that failed to find the right balance, but saying that the city should never regulate how businesses are run is just ludicrous.

Re: “City extends King Street bike parking restrictions south of Calhoun

Ima, that is exactly what I have suggested repeatedly to the city. We need to know how many are necessary, then get the correct amount installed, and then enforcement would be a little more appropriate.

Re: “Upper King must secede from the City of Charleston

It doesn't matter how many bars there are. I'm not sure how it can be said that a city can have a limit. Bars will either do well and stay open or they will close. Business owners should be able to do what the choose when it comes to deciding their bar or store hours because at the end of the day the only people truly suffering from lack of sleep are the business owners and people in food and bev and we don't mind. I live above a bar on upper king and I have no problem going to sleep, leaving my house, being in my neighborhood. As a business owner as well working a block away, we are all here because we enjoy this environment and want to make it a stimulating place to be. My main frustration with this ban (although it does not apply to my bar) is that it was not driven by a general concern for everyone's safety and well being. They should be more worried about creating a more efficient public transportation system. That would lessen traffic, parking situations, inebriated driving, and public drunkenness. It's shit like this that keeps Charleston from growing and advancing into modern times. Chris Haire, please keep us updated on how we can save our stifled freedoms.
