You covered a lot in that one.....If we have so many problems, why are people pouring here? We have always done the best we can and will continue to do so for ALL our citizens and visitors. I am an optimist and believe our best is yet to come. I would same the same....just take a breath and let Charleston evolve a bit at a time. Heck , we are only 346 years old! Remember our Motto."AEdes Mores Juraque Curat"...."She guards her buildings, customs and laws."
It's gonna be a landslide in November. Dems will take back the Senate for sure, and maybe even the House.
We have been called the "friendliest city" not the "perfect city". I don't believe any municipality could earn that award.
Totally agree, and found our time in Charleston riddled with guilt... friendliness is not enough when a huge amount of your neighbors are in desperate need, Friendliness in not enough in the face of public schools systems failing kids and I would love to see more honest journalism expose the actual needs in the greater Charleston area to create a fulfilling large community of citizens that all benefit from the commercial/tourist opportunistic accolades that may bring tax revenue and help local business -- but Charleston's layered levels of neglected sectors need focus and care and cure and the entire community will benefit...ignore this type of journalism and the problems at your peril...
This is an excellent development... This company had no right to deny him benefits. When officer Slager is acquitted I hope the city is prepared for THEIR lawsuit. Maybe they can get part of the Six Million from the family back to pay Slager's award.

Well Stephanie, if you really think that way, maybe you should do something to actively change it instead of passively writing hateful articles. For one, I smile and say hi to people all the time, I help lost looking people on the street, and have offered rides to more than a few people in town.
What a sourpuss!! Try living in NYC or any other city up North!
Its the neck, always has been, always will be, at least to us from here. Don't give a rats ass what y'all want to "rename" it, we are still calling it the neck. I think I'm going to start randomly renaming stuff for no good reason too. Starting with the Market Street Area. Instead of Little Italy like NYC, it will now be known as Little Buckeye or maybe Little Toledo, how about Little Cincinnati?
For past 12 years i have heard older black folks in my neighborhood (North Central/ Huger Street....represent!) refer to this area as the the Neck. where is Murrays Meats? used to be on Rutledge where Jamals is located, but now it is up on the Neck. sometimes they say up the Neck instead of up on the neck, but regardless it is already the neck part of the Peninsula. I, too, am tired of the inventa a culture mentality pushing ut towards NoMo which is so 1980,s lamo, ya know. just my .02.
It's called constructive abandonment and it can also be considered as cruel and inhumane treatment. Depending on the state constructive abandonment can be legitimately used as the basis for a fault divorce.
I have to agree with Ima, I never heard anyone outside of the city paper call it anything but "the neck".
Fixed, thanks. Good to hear from you again today, Ima!
"Journo Ron Aiken has stayed on reported of impropriety inside Richland County government since leaving the SC Policy Council's The Nerve and founding Quorum Columbia, uncovering new allegations that county recreation officials were selling moonshine and counterfeit electronics out of their government offices"
Perhaps, if the reporter doesn't understand sentence structure and grammar, we should hire an editor that does?
Doucheborough seems proper. :)
I guess you dont want to correct you error?
Keep it NOMO, or rename it Upchuck.
Addlestone Library is in Harleston Village, not Radcliffeborough, but we appreciate the shout-out!
All of these suggestions are actually more contrived than the original premise. What about “Doucheborough”, or “ Northdouche”, or “Uppermorrisonashleycooperdouche”? You know, something more fitting for the consumerist, invent-a-culture aspect of the exercise?
