'“Menu inflation is the only way to cover it,” said Keener...'
Well, not being a cheap bastard is another way to cover it. But then again that's probably why I'm not a business owner.
folly beach has no shortness of money. The $480 ticket my brother in law got for parking to close to a fire hydrant on their visit from atlanta. We had to dig through an over grown palm tree and bushes to take a photo of it. Just so we could prove it was completely invisible to the public. how do the fire fighters hook a hose to it??? It took two people to hold back the plant life to get a befor and after photo. Folly Beach shame on you! i lived on folly for one year and moved away because my rental house had sewage back ups all the time. Folly refuses to get public sewage for fear of developement. yeah lets keep useing 20th century septic tanks!!! Folly beach cares not one bit about anything but tourist dollars and ticket money...suck it Folly Beach..I go to IOP if i want to go to the beach now....
Can a pop culture joke be both timely and untimely at the same time?
WJH, you are right. But these people also chose to serve and should theoretically be held to a higher standard of behavior and intelligence than those whom they represent.
The first step is admitting you have a problem.
$7 to park is bullshit.
Service in local government is incredibly stressful now. These people are easy, vulnerable targets. Unsupported by the massive resources available to Congressman and Senators, including the protective bubble of staff to deflect the anger of the public, these people pick up their own phones, at home when they are with their kids. Not everyone is good at this, but we need to be grateful and positive when we can be. These are the people who pick up the trash, make sure the sewage gets pumped away and that the stoplights work. They don't get to blame it on the Republicans or the Democrats when it doesn't work. They can't hide behind a website and a call management center. As budgets are cut and infrastructure wears out and everything in range is defunded, they have less to work with. Lets remember to say thank you.
It's all BS. This town is so overbuilt with hotels it like a Monopoly game board; there's no way they can be anywhere near the occupancy rates they claim to justify the prices they ask. Some local thread keeps pushing the new construction in order to have continued construction so the replacement cost is high and the hotels preserve the higher cost occupancy rate. Take a look around; is this place hotel overbuilt or what?
Is Mr Bubbles Chris Collins? He seems to have the same level of competency with the English language.
It costs the school district about $50k a year to keep that building in good enough shape for it to be occupied. They charge the church about $7k a year that they are constantly late on paying and are constantly in violation of their lease agreement. Several months ago the church gave notice that they would not be staying there and the school district accepted the notice, including Chris Collins by his vote. Any legal costs for this borne by the district should be charged back to Mr. Collins.
Racism means that discrimination happens because of ethnicity. As in: I see you, and you're an Eskimo, and I hate Eskimos because I'm racially prejudiced against them so I'm not going to hire/date/help/etc you.
The de facto meaning in 21st century America, though, is that certain cultural and behavioural choices are associated with certain races. So, if you disagree with those cultural or behavioural choices you are therefore a racist (AS LONG AS they are not the "white" set of cultural and behavioural choices, then it's ok and not racism).
If your cultural and behavioural choices do not align with those conventionally assigned to your race (ala Tim Scott) but they do align with the "white" ones, then it's not racism to disagree with them and use words like "race traitor" or "Uncle Tom" - it's just snarky and clever and we're, like, totally cool with it you know dude?
Driftaway, I know you want to be offended and roll out the righteous "us evil gays" lines and all that...but can you at least wait until there is actually cause to? Localhutch's post was in no way, shape or form such a reason. Just because someone disagrees with you, and you're gay, it doesn't mean they are anti-gay.
ps - If you disagree with me, then why do you are you bigoted against Citadel graduates? Stop the hate! :)
Let me get this right. A community is paying all they can afford to in truth be Taxed twice on a public property that no one really care about. Am I some what close here? Now the community has to hire an attorney to take back the use of the building that is publicly owned. I say open the doors. Let grandma have her 85 birthday. So what. May you should start eating the birthday cake and back off the Kool-Aid everyone seems to be drinking these days. I have a History question has everyone forgotten what buildings where first used to start schools? The Community, The People, The Government.
My issue isn't understanding how Crisis Ministries didn't notice the money missing (but $4.5 million a year, wow)....
My issue is how the bank didn't notice this a lot sooner....
"between Dec. 13, 2011, and June 3, 2013, Libby 'took checks belonging to Crisis Ministries, and made them payable to [different] vendors, totaling $96,199.01, and then deposited said checks into a personal bank account, belonging to her, and once in her possession used said money for her own personal use.'"
Now, if I read that write, she was writing checks from the CM checkbook payable to someone who was not herself and then still somehow getting them deposited into her account?
Yea, that would require either extreme incompetence on the part of the bank, or complicity somewhere inside the bank.
Are you for real?
Is Carl Weathers involved?
"...more salad than boozy."
But entirely bourgie.
"I'd like to see the breakdown of those contributions."
Me too. It's a shame we don't know any journalists.
This article makes stay at home moms and retirees sound like a bunch of bored, petulant children with too much time on their hands. You live at the goddamn beach people - just go enjoy it and calm down!
Well, Thanks for the clarification Tarafan.
I may have mentioned the wrong poster. The person I mean is that idiot wearing those glasses that always comes in with the LGBT view of everything and how Folly is still Folly.
Yeah pal. You are still and asshole and an idiot too!
