Scuda's comments are contradictory to what it seems he intended to insinuate. I am familiar with the building. It was built by Mayor Francis Coleman in the early 1950's and served as his office. What is now Half Moon Outfitters and previously served as the home to Napa Auto Parts was then Mr. Coleman's driveway. The building has housed many different small businesses since then, including a woodworking shop, alteration shop, consignment shop and a few others. As to the lingerie shop next door, as a resident I would have been more concerned with that buildings previous tenant erecting what mirrors a training camp for the taliban in the lot behind it devaluing any nearby property. Can't imagine how renovating and updating a building built in the 1950's would devalue anything within proximity, rather the effect on the community will be quite the opposite. I am sure the the longtime residents of this neighborhood appreciate the fact that folks like Mr. Scott move here from off and label themselves preservationists. Clearly they need help preserving their neighborhood that has somehow gotten along for over 200 years without them. These folks obviously have plenty of spare time, I suggest they buy all the property for sale in the area and as the owners they could do what they see fit with it. I can think of a few businesses that this area needs, first being a non-profit support group for men with unusually high levels of estrogen. I think its a refreshing departure from the more recent norm. Would have been interesting to see the reaction of these folks to the Mount Pleasant that was actually a town comprised of people from the area. I am sure they would have picketed the Dart Garden, the water park and the metro men would have certainly sported their skinny jeans and PETA signs when Channel 2 had an elephant housed at the base of the Grace.
Is that a man in the Barbour jacket? If so, the depicted limp wrist is certainly fitting. I hear that Barbour jackets can at times be purchased at sporting good dealers and have seen pictures of people in them with firearms, oh my. Must be the model reserved for lads that fancy tea parties. Good luck Mr. Braxton, look forward to placing orders.
