Re: “Café Kronic

This little cafe is about to be little no more. They are moving to where D&B's Cheeseburger's used to be behind Walgreens, a few doors down from Mondo's Delight and Terrie's Sports Bar. I love this place and excited for them to have a bigger place to serve more locals and tourist at. They have an amazing staff, who are all so nice and sweet. I hope this restaurant continues to do well and even better once in its new place. If you have not tried them out please go and do not waste anymore time. This cozy laid back atmosphere yet superb customer service along with amazing cuisine is what I think to be the best on James Island. Rooting for this Cafe all the way!! Love this place! Keep Going and make it happen!!

Re: “Folly Beach Residents Report Police Harassment

I am so on the fence about this one. I have had numerous cases of getting pulled over and having a cop (in particular this one on a motorcycle) he had 3 others cars pulled over and stopped me with his palm and yelled HO! and I stopped and he continued to tell me to pull over then made me wait to tell me what I had done wrong til he had given all other 3 cars a ticket also he ended up pulling another person behind me and they had to wait until he was done with me which this took about 1 hr and 25 mins or so for all of us to get out of this. It was at an intersection between Riverland drive and Maybank HWY and when he finally to to me what I had improperly put my blinker on too early and also turned into the farthest left hand lane too early ("before it was a lane, too not close enough to the dotted line) such bullshit. Anyways he gave me the ticket and was mean to me and I even told him honestly I said I am getting ready to run out of gas and I need to turn around because I already missed my class and I am late to work have to get my work clothes and he told me to stop talking unless I wanted to go to jail. He then went to his motorcycle and wrote up my tickets which were like 2 differrent tickets and made me wait there anothe 35 minutes and I was late as hell to work. Anyways another time I ran out of gas in middle of night in what my mom referred to as crack villed and they stopped had this bright ass light in my eyes asking me why I was squinting. "I cant see duh". But this was on James Island as well and they were so nice waited with me til my mom got there , she gave me gas they noticed that my tags were out and let me go though. They were actng like they had to protect me which was really nice. I am so in between on this issue becuae I have experienced mean unfair cops and then nice protective community serving cops too. Seems that maybe its a stereotypical thing these cops are doing most the time. They need to realize that not everyone is the same and do not judge a book by its cover. I agree that the new officers are more accustomed to large crimes and people that will steal from their own mother if they wanted to . But it is not quite like that in james island folly beach .. I think they need to embrace the community and maybe get to know us better with civil acknowledgement or conversation instead of assuming the worst in us all.. I believe the cops are out of their normal element and this wont stop until we stand up and make them aware of it so I like this article and do love having good cops whop do their jobs and are sweet hearts and would do anything to make sure you are safe we can not forget about them but the ones out of place and sternly taking a likng to assuming and harrassing and just general stereotyping need to learn a lesson here. Get accustomed to this community or get out plain and simple.
