Re: “James Island gains a fast/casual spot with Hen and The Goat

James Islanders are tough on restaurants that don't know what they are and jack up the prices on their food like generic King Street burger joints for the touristas. Prime example was the recent closure of Stereo 8, a place with lots of promise but lack focus, so-so food and over priced offerings. It last less than a year.

Hen and Goat take notice

Re: “The birth of a new environmental movement

I guess Mr. Woods doesn't even bother to read his own hometown paper regarding this environmental disaster:

"Clean-up crews are racing to clear acres of debris at the largest Dakota Access protest camp before the spring thaw turns the snowy, trash-covered plains into an environmental disaster area. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Friday that the camp, located on federal land, would be closed Feb. 22 in order to prevent injuries and significant environmental damage in the likely event of flooding in this area at the mouth of the Cannonball River in North Dakota.

Without proper remediation, debris, trash, and untreated waste will wash into the Cannonball River and Lake Oahe, the Corps said in its statement.Those involved in the clean-up effort, led by the Standing Rock Sioux, say it could take weeks for private sanitation companies and volunteers to clear the expanse of abandoned tents, teepees, sleeping bags, blankets, canned food, supplies and just plain garbage littering the Oceti Sakowin camp.

Its unfortunate. Again, that just goes against what theyre fighting against, is leaving that stuff and abandoning it and obviously the environment the river, Scott Davis, North Dakota Commissioner for Indian Affairs, told KFYR-TV in Bismarck."

Re: “The Codfather brings proper fish and chips to North Charleston

Best fish and chip I've had. I lived in Scotland for 2.5 years and have been all over the UK. Adam knows what he's doing and takes pride in his food. Can't wait to try the pies! Highly recommend and a must visit for anyone to Charleston!

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Texas retained it's right to sovereignty, which is why it is the only state flag that can be flown at the same height as the US flag.
And the Corwin Amendment was passed by the 36th Congress and ratified by 6 states, not enough to make it law. However, it STILL sits on the books and can be ratified if states choose. Case in point, MD just rescinded it's ratification in 2014. Texas also reconsidered ratification in 1963.
So...Congress needs to remove it from ever possibly being ratified. Think about that.

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Thank you for trying to educate and inform people with some facts and truth and while it is true that SC cited the failure of the federal government to enforce the fugitive slave act in its secession document, North Carolina, Virginia and the Cherokee nation did not. The causes of secession and the war are numerous and complex and not as simple as people are told to believe they are and that the ludicrous and ignorant comparisons to the Confederacy and the Nazis and the swastika to the battle Flag are little more than thinly veiled efforts to make anyone tht feels pride, honour or in fact anything positive about the Confederacy automatically as a Nazi, racist and something to be ashamed off.

Why is it to run concurrently with his weapons & drug charges? Essentially, he received no sentence for animal abuse. I assume the judge could have had the abuse charge be served consecutively? If so, total BS!

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

I can relate to both sides my degree is in Hospitality Management and worked in the industry for many years. I have also chaired many charity events. I wouldn't dream of asking any business for a donation unless I was a regular customer. That goes for restaurants and retail alike. I also encouraged my fellow committee members to Do the same. While I can appreciate some of what this woman from the PR firm has to say, a lot of it is crap. First of all a donation of a gift certificate can be beneficial to a restaurant in several ways. First it can introduce the restaurant to customers that may not be familiar with the restaurant. Second a restaurant writes a gift certificate for $100, hard cost to the restaurant is no more than $35, yet they can write off the full amount as a donation. Let's not forget the small business Anthem. Patronize small local restaurants instead of chains because the owners live and work in the community. Money made here stays here. I'm guessing as a PR firm you have sung this song more than once. Well that's how people get the idea to ask a business to give back to the community.

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

Good points all.

But I do have a suggestion for chefs, restaurants, and other small businesses: don't just wait around for the next freebie request. Have a philanthropy strategy. Know what you want to support and why, then stick to it. Be sure it aligns with your business plan (you have a plan, right?), then create a budget (how much you'd be willing to donate in any one year), then implement the plan. NOW you have a construct for what you will, AND what you won't support, and by how much and how often. This way the next time you have to say, "Sorry, can't do it," it's not because you're just burned out by requests. It's because you ARE doing your part in the community, without putting yourself out of business. Just a thought.

Re: “Bipartisan 'disturbing schools' legislation passes an important procedural hurdle

I was bullied mercilessly in my class, in Prague, from 6th grade to 9th, when we escaped to Austria. I was being assaulted, slandered, ridiculed, by most of the boys in my class. It was hell, I was sometimes suicidal. They were criminals, they deserved to rot in prison. But we students had a no tattling policy, so the teachers did not know. The boys were all of them white. But they were vicious criminals.

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

I work for a non profit ministry that helps sex trafficking victims and am responsible for marketing and soliciting businesses and churches for contributions. Donations and help from our community are vital to carry out our mission to help the women and children we serve. We do our very best to promote businesses who contribute to our cause. As a new and young organization with very limited funds we have to ask for the help of our local businesses and churches. And to expect something from us in return is not realistic and just wrong. Not all organizations can patronage at every restaurant that offers to help simply because their funds our limited as well. I give of myself and out of pocket to this ministry and other charities because it's the right thing to do and don't have any expectations for anything in return other than to help others. In the article I am hearing "what is in it for me as a business", and how "annoying" it is to receive X amount of request weekly... The bottom line for us, as a non profit, is that without organizations like ours and businesses willing to contribute to our causes, there will be countless women and children who won't get the help they need. So donations are crucial to it's survival. We need to focus more on what the charity stands for and who they will be impacting rather than, what it will do for my business, and my bottom line if I help. Also If restaurants and businesses don't have the money, time or have exhausted their resources they should simply POLITELY decline or ignore the request and leave it at that... Trust me we understand that you can't help everyone! As an organization we too have been asked to help other orgs and have had to respectfully decline some request because we have stretched ourselves thin. We ask for donations because our charities depend on them to live out our mission. And personally speaking we are grateful to all of the businesses that give of themselves so that the people we serve can get the help they need. It's a selfless thing to do. Acalades and profits for your business as a contributor are a bonus, but should always be last of expectations when giving fully of yourselves to help the community and our fellow man. Whether you have a business or not, giving back is what God has called us and purposed us ALL to do! It's everyone's responsibility to help those in need.

Re: “Chef Justin Pfau departs Harold's Cabin

No loss. One of the worst meals I ever had. There were 4 of us and we all but one thought terrible. The three desserts were terrible. They served this light green slime under beignets. We tasted it and had no idea what it was. It had a grainy texture. We found out it was " basil creme fraiche". What??? R u kidding me??? God awful. I make my own and know the consistency. That was not creme fraiche. I hope they find a better replacement. Just keep it simple!!! Make a great hamburger for goodness sake!!!
