OK Ace - You're obviously a tad smarter than the average evicted tent city resident. So lets play. Explain to me please why it's wrong to have an otherwise unoccupied and unused space made available for local businesses to sell their wares? I'm thinking you're also against farmers markets. You know the ones that are so popular and all over town. And especially the empty space the town of mt p is going to use for the shrimpers / fishermen. You know the one I speak of? The one that the the town of mt p uses for a farmers market on tuesdays. And since you're an insurance expert, tell us what it should cost to insure a shrimp trawler. And while you're at it what should the shrimpers / fishermen do for a living instead of shrimping, according to you. Please please, everyone is anxiously waiting.
Unfortunately, those boats aren't insurable to cover damage, fires, water hazards, sinking, etc. Moreover, the amount of liability insurance the town required them to carry was cost prohibitive. That's why that dock sits empty
I don't understand what you say is a "problem"?
This is a very good thing and I hope it catches on and gains momentum. It's a fabulous way for residents (and non) to learn about our fresh and sustainable seafood. I see nothing but positives about this.
I agree with what you stated. Th North Mt Pleasant crowd handily voted all of their resident incumbents out. So yes, you are correct, it wasn't nearly just about the parking garage. Which is the crux of my opinion of this ill reputed article. People in all parts of Mt Pleasant want things to change. The "opposition" and big media who are owned from developer $$ want people to believe that Save Shem Creek is just about a small zealous grop not wanting a big parking garage. However, and especially since social media, people are able to get the real story, and not just what big media and big advertising are paid to try and make you believe. What City Paper, P&C, Charleston Chamber of Commerce, etc, have failed to notice, understand, and admit, - is times have changed, people are smarter and more well informed. Basically their lying and promoting untruths strategy has failed and backfired. The tragedy is they still refuse to listen to the citizen (voters) voices and continue to believe that spending enough mone will get them what they want.
