Re: “City Council to consider changes to tour guide licensing laws

The lawsuit is bogus! I'm all for freedom of speech - if you want to give a free tour of Historic Charleston, that's fine and dandy. You can say anything you want. You don't have to worry about the accuracy of your remarks. But if you are planning to take peoples' hard-earned money, you must know your facts! Would you pay an unlicensed plumber to replace your water heater? Or how about paying the neighborhood kid to maintain the neighborhood golf course?
We expect our licensed tour guides to represent our fair city in its best light. This includes consistency from tour guide to tour guide. If Mr. Mc Namara's clients can't handle this, they're in the wrong business.

Re: “Beach Co. announces judge’s decision on Sgt. Jasper appeal

The Beach Company is famous for giving us front beach houses in the dunes at Isle of Palms - houses built on sand. Hurricane Hugo showed us the folly of that!

Re: “The Agenda: Dylann Roof in court today; Whole Foods planning Charleston store; Trump as Perot?

Roof should be sentenced to being the Sexton for Emanuel AME for the rest of his life - if they'll have him. What better way for him to serve the people he tried to obliterate? He should be provided with housing, food and clothing, and a modest income to cover expenses. And, he should wear an ankle monitor that can't be removed.

Re: “Breaking down the proposed I-526 extension

Those of you who were here when a route was first proposed around Charleston to James and Johns Islands may remember the hullabaloo. The SC Highway Dept. planned to build a highway through what is now the Cactus Car Wash and K-Mart, the subdivisions behind K-Mart (including mine), across Elliots Cut, onto James Island (through Riverland Terrace), and then over to Johns Island, and then back to the mainland.
The neighbors were not very happy with that plan. They got together and planned an alternate route that went through less-developed land and did not involve crossing Elliots Cut. Their route would cost less money and serve more people more efficiently.
The almighty Highway Dept. was incensed that ANYONE had the temerity to stand up to them! The battle was joined. The citizens won, and lost.
The Highway Dept., and the State of SC stalled for 45 years. The land was developed. Kiawah and Seabrook Islands were developed. Folly Road went from two to four lanes for most of its length. The citizens' route is now embroiled in controversy.
We still have no good way to evacuate the islands before a hurricane. I've lived through Gracie and Hugo, and the hurricanes inbetween and since. I can swap horror stories with anybody.
Let's get a good, safe, FAST evacuation road built NOW. It will serve double duty by smoothing transportation around the islands and West Ashley daily. The Snowbirds can just grouse!
