The condition of Zimmerman's head didn't support the claim that it was being beaten against the ground. His head supported the supposition that he did himself some damage to create justification after he shot to kill an unarmed kid, who was being hunted down despite explicit police instructions to cease and desist.
To be fair to the Dorchester County GOP (and I'm a Charleston Democrat). they don't have any control over who's on their executive committee. He may have been "elected," but he also may have been the only person to show up at the precinct reorganization from his precinct. The party structure is a vestige of the old days, when precincts had lots of officers (and money) and were the "go-to" guys for citizens who had problems. Those days are "gone with the wind."
@ Terry: it's not difficult to get a building permit, as long as you aren't looking for a variance. Several (8-10) houses have been built this year. But duplexes are limited to a small area near Center Street. Depends on where the lots your family has looked at are located.
You left out one simple fact that explains a whole lot about what you've "reported" (especially what you've quoted): municipal elections, including mayoral elections, are coming up next April. Eddie Ellis is doing the usual: campaigning by high-decibel insult. When it's over (and he loses, as he always does when he runs for mayor), he'll go around and apologize, and blame it all on his girlfriend-of-the-moment. And Carl Beckmann, who didn't believe for a moment that he wouldn't be reelected (as an incumbent candidate, he got 18% of the vote) is once again entertaining delusions of grandeur, or at least revenge. And Greta Anderson is believed to be running for Council. It's Follitics.
The council was not divided. It was a unanimous vote. Eddie Ellis has just swung into crazy mode, which he does every time he runs for mayor (i.e., every chance he gets). Toni's contract was requested by her lawyer, and written by her lawyer. But she doesn't like Goodwin and decided to try to take him down on her way out. Her only problem: people overwhelmingly like Goodwin. They are rallying around him now, big time.
