Re: “Crossfit Integrity

Wondering about the above review. I've been a member of Integrity since 2011. The warm up is anywhere from 15 to 20 min, and is based on the WOD. Brian, the owner, is present during the classes that are being coached (which I think is awesome). If he finds that you are using poor form or doing a movement incorrectly, he will point this out, and have you drop down in weight or offer suggestions for improvement. This keeps you from getting injured, and also helps you to avoid those horrific "no reps" during competitions. If your "habits from your old box" include poor form or movements, Brian is doing you a favor by offering suggestions for improvement, and your inability to accept constructive criticism is nothing short of immature. I'm not competitive, just there to stay healthy, but I really appreciate the attention to form, movement, and the positive and friendly attitude and acceptance of everyone and spirit of community at this gym. I started at the age of 39, am now 45, and have yet to have an injury due to anything I have done at CrossFit Integrity, and I've pushed myself pretty hard. I think that speaks well to some excellent coaching. The coaches encourage you to do your best and keep going. I'm really thankful for the level of health and fitness I have achieved at CFI. I'd encourage anyone to give it a try at the community classes on Saturday mornings at 9:30 am, and see if it's a good fit for you.

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.

For anything to be real, it must be composed of atoms and neutrons and such - physical matter, that is. Gods can ONLY be imagined - and feared where Christianity is concerned.

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.

All I want to do is maintain my property and the City won't let me. We need a new Mayor

Re: “Rise in S.C. tourism among African-Americans following Confederate flag removal

Rise in S.C. TOURISM AMONG AFRICAN-AMERICANS
My family came into Charleston for a family reunion. Ive lived here all my life and never wanted to take a tour here in Charleston. Most of us local African Americans dont even consider it. But they wanted to do a African American tour so we called up the visitors center and they happily gave us the instructions that all African American tours leave from the CVB bus shed. When we got there we asked about African American tours and they gave us 2 options. Wow out of all these tour companies they only gave us 2 that were Black owned??! Ouch! They quickly referred Al Brown of Gullah tours. I know Alphonso Brown him being my band teacher in school. We all at the school knew of his gay relationships and would often tease him as young children tend to do. He is a leader in the church choir which is also very common for gay men, no big deal. So when the CVB recommend his tour I was a little slow and saying yes. My family however not knowing his background wanted to give it a try. After taking his Gullah tour, my family which is all Gullah we were all very disappointed that we got very little Gullah history and got plenty laughs and jokes. We understood that a gay man would have a different way of telling African American Gullah history.
So we went back to the CVB and said we would try Al Millers tour. We happily paid and took his tour. WOW, this guy is extremely flamboyantly gay. He is not even Gullah yet he was giving a Gullah tour. How is the only 2 African American tours the City of Charleston offers are 2 Gay men?? This is a problem. How do we only have 2 black gay men teaching on the history of Charlestons African American history for all the world to learn about? Charleston is the #1 city in the world for tourism which is the history of that city and we all know our history is SLAVERY! Yet the City of Charleston only promotes to Gay African American tours? God please help us!! Why is nobody talking about this. This is the main reason black people in Charleston HATE Charleston tourism. We continue to learn that nothing in Charleston has changed. Shame on this holy city.

Re: “James Island residents call for moratorium on new apartments

The irony is that the Charleston area needs people to build lots of little cheap apartments, so the poor people don't have to spend most of their income on rent, it is terrible. Rents are rising faster than inflation. But if more roads are needed to handle the traffic, let's build more roads. But it seems like most in the state legislature don't want to increase the gas tax even a little bit, to pay for more roads. And yet gas is cheap nowadays. People are buying gas guzzlers, like SUV's. It's terrible.

Re: “Herb Silverman's newest essay collection suggests how we can be "good without God"

Yes, Ron, I have read that joke before. I sure wish there would be more common ground. But many Christians are prejudiced against atheists, thinking that since an atheist is not obeying any God, he or she must be more immoral than Christians. Many would not even vote for an atheist for President, or even other offices. Though some atheists are so extreme, they think all religions are dangerous. Meanwhile in the land of my birth, which is now the Czech Republic, atheists are frequently getting elected, no problem, after all only about 20% of Czechs are still Christian. And the murder rate in the Czech Republic is much lower than here in America. True, there is more corruption in the Czech Republic, but that is because it is a poorer country than America. In general, the poorer the country, the more corruption there, because the salaries are lower, so more temptation.
