I moved here nearly 30 years ago and immediately got rid of my bike because I didn't feel like dying while riding Riding on 6 inches of bumpy shoulder next to an open ditch it is not my idea of a relaxing bike ride. Nearly 30 years later there's been no improvement. I can appreciate those who try but it still seems like a nonsensical undertaking, not if you value your life.
I moved here 30 years ago and got rid of my bike - thinking I was too young to die. I didn't like riding on six inches of shoulder and anticipating falling in an open ditch. I still feel that way. No progress in 30 years.
it's only a matter of time and rational erosion that mothers will be allowed to "put down" children up to 3 months of age to protect the health of the mother ie. mental health,like post partem depression,which can certainly be VERY INCONVENIENT for some women.
No new roads should be build without proper shoulders AND a proper bike lane. Period. It's not hard people.
Any thing that keeps MORE people from coming here, I'm all for. Unless they all ride bikes!
Charleston is nice for tourists, but besides being a pretty place, visually, offers very little for residents, and its obvious that this is in line with the city's priorities. Biking here is possible, as in there is concrete in places. I ride knowing that if i get hit by a car, at least it'll probably be from behind, so I probably won't see him or her coming. But as a bicyclist who follows the rules, I am usually treated as a second class citizen. Getting heckled and having things thrown at me regularly is worse than the non-existent bicycle infrastructure. But, like most issues in the region, it comes down to education, and this should not be mistaken with time spent in school.
It's nice to see something different than the usual food review in this paper praising every single restaurant as the best thing ever. (See the article about Le Farfalle's $50 cheese).
She obviously had issues before she went there , the food is outstanding !
Ah, get off your political high horses! Must sting, huh? The crux of this article reveals just one thing. The middle class can NEVER afford such luxuries since we are bearing the entire nation's tax load, while the rich live off of our backs paying hardly anything - courtesy of the GOP.
vivaladreamer said, "There is an erroneous perception in the community that BLM is anti-police".
That is laughable. Wake up lady! Either you have no idea what is going on in your own supposed moment or you are not very smart. Nicest way I can say it.
Another reason venues don't want hip hop culture is because they don't make any money off the crowd. Ask anybody that owns a bar or music venue. Go ahead and ask
Yes, political comments shouldn't be addressed regarding this culinary experience.
It's CRYSTAL clear this event was singled out by CPD due to its connection to Black Lives Matter. There is an erroneous perception in the community that BLM is anti-police, and its obvious the powers that be at CPD subscribe to that flawed way of thinking. This was a way for Captain Searson and the department to flex their muscles and head BLM off at the pass. Period.
Additionally, to use circumstantial evidence from a completely different event, featuring a completely unrelated group of artists, presented by a completely different group of promoters to justify "safety concerns" for this event is both discriminatory and egregious.
CPD would do well to stop crimininalizing black folks and the Music Farm would do well to stop simultaneously poaching and marginalizing hip hop culture.
All Lives Matter!
Randall, I'll let the editor know.
I can't believe the CCP "editors" let you put in that asinine comment about trump supporters. Really distasteful
I believe the Gospel tells us "Let he who has not made a typo cast the first misplaced modifier." I stand by that.
Safe spaces are very important to people, Kinsey Giddick! You have violated the sacred safe space of the food section with your triggering words! Oh, the blog post about this will. be. seething!
But, seriously: "weather the truffle could improve..." Don't set yourself up like that.
If they aren't worried about "safety concerns" why should the CPD? Sounds to me instead of saying CPD helped to make them safe, they are saying the police made up reasons to keep them from having their concert. By all means... Let them have the concert and when the shooting begins, lets all meet for coffee and cake and they can take care of themselves.
The video clearly showed that the cop tried to kill Scott. I don't care what happened before that. I think 30 years in prison for the cop is fair for both.
The Trump reference in your dinner review was inappropriate.
I won't continue to berate you as I can see I am not the only one who feels this way.
Time to take a refresher course in journalism.
