Vibrant is akin to "vibration", so it describes sound and pulsating energy more than color.
Any word aficionado has to acknowledge that words gain new meanings and change over time. Ergo, Local. What local meant in our area has changed a lot from 1920, to 1960, to 1980, to 2013. Back in the 70s, a local business in Charleston was probably owned by a local family (Condon's, Kerrison's, Krawcheck, Tanenbaum). Now, for every old family local business that managed to survive national chains arrivals and our recent Renaissance, there's 10-20 (probably more) local businesses that are the creation of transplants. The business is local, the jobs are local, the tax dollars are local, even if the creators aren't. Transplants chose to move here, they love it here, and they brought energy and fresh ideas with them. What a boon for all of us. Historically, Coastal cities have always been in flux, that's part of what has made their cultures interesting than more homogenous cities found inland.
In defense of buggy code. Has anyone not noticed that Bill Gates has made a fortune off buggy code. Will we ever see a headline, Microsoft Windows releases final version? Maybe when a new method of making computers renders it obsolete and it is replaced by the Doors.
Its not called the Nanny State for nothing. Pretty soon a proctologist will have to supervise every BM. I mean seriously, didn't Elvis die on the potty from a heart attack brought on by straining due to constipation?
The contact information on the facebook page is for the two federal representatives that cover the CBP location who have nothing to do with state DHEC policies. Governor Haley's info is on there and it would be good to put the info for the state senator and representative that cover this district. I am not sure who they are otherwise I would post it here and there.

This is our most favorite art gallery not just in Charleston but in the US. The art collection is smart, interesting and something for everyone. The owner is so wonderful and have introduced us to so many fabulous pieces. I have my absolute most favorite pieces from this gallery. This is a must do!!!!
I am a RN who works at both a local hospital and Charleston Birth Place (CBP) and I can definitely say CBP is a safe place for low-risk mothers to give birth. The midwives at CBP are so knowledgable and take excellent, competent care of the mothers and babies at CBP. I will choose to give birth at CBP someday and I am urging DHEC to keep the CBP open. The regulation needs to be changed, not the CBP.
Both of my children were birth center babies (at Women's Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill, NC). As a mom and as a birth doula, I strongly support free-standing birth centers and the midwives who staff them. Not only is it important to give women choices in their birth setting and care providers, but it is also important to support a model of care that obviously works. For low-risk women, a birth center birth attended by a CNM is one of her safest options. The statistics coming out of birth centers nationwide are all telling the same story: low Cesarean rates, low transfer rates, extremely low emergency transfer rates, and better outcomes for both mom and baby, even when compared to similarly low-risk women in the hospital setting. More bureaucratic involvement by individuals NOT trained in maternal health means less choice for moms and worse outcomes for moms and babies!
Question: does the Preservation Society board approve the material that Evan Thompson provides to the City Paper as free content? Do his opinions reflect positions taken by the membership?
Blah blah blah. The Board of Architectural Review website shows all submitted documents for every agenda item. The Preservation Society website hasn't been updated since 2011. It's pitiful to rely on Facebook and City Paper for a public presence, while publishing the "quarterly" Preservation Progress twice a year. You need to establish institutional credibility before you propose a revamped website (expensive, donor-supported) as a solution to anything.
The Preservation Society claims Charleston Cottages as a priority. What's become of the NR nomination you were preparing? Houses on Lee Street are selling right now, and they will be renovated without review because there are no federal tax incentives for complying with preservation guidelines.
Finally, kiss my ass. "Similarly, to the extent possible, BAR members should avoid taking on controversial projects as part of their professional work they know will come before the board."
Glenn McConnell is an ethically-challenged public servant with no place in academia. The SC Historical Society is still reeling from Nancy Hawk's decision to buy the Tower Collection of Civil War books and art, even though McConnell bailed them out by purchasing that 2nd-rate stuff with state funds. Where is that crap now?
What kinds of Confederate memorabilia will the College of Charleston waste its money on if Glenn McConnell gets access to that checkbook?
Took a bike in for repair in August and got it back in November. No progress reports from the Service department. When we would call to get info it was wrong information and we were lied to frequently about the service. Never will I go back for any service or sales again. I feel the management staff did not care about my concerns nor did they do anything about them.
My wife had some children born in a hospital and then some at CBP. CBP was an incredibly wonderful experience compared to our hospital births. There is so much of a difference that I do not see us going back to a hospital experience. They follow the rules and regulations strictly and would never take the chance of risking a mother's or baby's life. No matter where one decides to deliver, there is always risks and there is nothing DHEC can do about that. Let the patients decide!
It would be wonderful if S.C. DHEC would lead the charge in recognizing the many positive benefits to the community which are offered by birth centers such as Charleston Birth Place. Hoping that the decision makers will follow the current threads and that sane decisions will prevail. Let's keep wonderful, natural birth options available for women in South Carolina and across the nation.
I am so thankful for the option of delivering my child at Charleston Birth Place. Statistically, they are a safer and more cost effective option for healthy, low-risk pregnancies. For any future pregnancies I may have, health-permitting, I would seek only this model of care. The midwives at CBP have been the best health-care providers I have ever experienced.
It was a different time. People were uneducated and stubborn. I believe that through time slavery would have dissipated either way. However, that's my biased opinion.
What's NOT a biased opinion, is that The Union wanted power to the gov., while The Confederacy wanted power to the people. In the long run, the war was more about Industry and Currency, rather than the exaggerated cruelty of slavery..
Those with position can really twist the big picture and easily fool a downtrodden people. Hell, look where we are today in America. If they use television to dumb us down and subliminal messaging to manipulate us, what else do you think they're scheming behind their stiff suits and ties?! Kittens and sunshine??
This new interpretation is forcing birth centers to adhere to rules that hospitals themselves don't even abide by. The regulation has been in place since 1991 and the Charleston Birth Place has been in compliance with it since it's inception in 2007. The fact that a government agency can change their mind in the blink of an eye is more than concerning. This is about protecting women's choices, and so much more!
Dude is awesome!
Opening up to a nationwide search raises the overall quality of applicants and moves the college forward. I can't believe that a president of an institution of higher learning wouldn't be subject to the same rigor as for its academic faculty searches.
