All this newspaper coverage is overdramatization and sensationalism. Folly is still a great place to live with wonderful people and total lack of pretention. Joel Flores said to me one night in "The Dolla": "Folly Beach is the only place I've ever been where eccentricity is not only tolerated, it's encouraged." I couldn't agree with him more.
I had a friend who lived on Jasper Street. I remember sitting in lawnchairs in her back yard drinking beer and watching the bumper to bumper traffic crawl toward the bridge. Then I moved to Folly. Go figure.
Paul Bowers, I am wondering why you chose to talk with a few disgruntled opponents of the alcohol ban rather than to the hundreds of Folly residents who support the ban and a return to sanity at Folly Beach. Regarding the tax revenue, you failed to mention that due to last spring's warm weather the beach was very busy beginning in March and this year we had a very cold and rainy spring. Most residents also support Tim Goodwin, who is not at all the person you seemed to want to portray him as. I feel the article was biased and unnecessarily fuels the notion that Folly Beach is a nasty place to live. I can assure you that Folly is still "Folly" and I agree wholeheartedly with Driftaway's comments.
