Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

I live in North Carolina and this is the first year we have had the noseeums here.
I am the only one besides my grandson they bite. I have been trying to get them out of my house and it does not seem to be working. I purchased some spray over the internet and we spray every time we leave the house. My husband never gets bitten, this I do not understand. I know I have as much as 100 bites and I am sure when we had the last bad storm that came up from Florida that is where they came from. NC does not spray even for mosquitoes and they use too.
Would love to see that change, I contacted my county commissioner to no avail, he will not get my vote next time.

Re: “Local company Canna Bonez makes Cannabidiol oil-infused dog treats

Wow, that's awesome! I never thought of, with marijuana becoming kind of normalized, something coming out for dogs. I hope it can help a lot of anxious little doggies.

Here's some good reads on CBD's historic use and current day research being done on it.

CBD helps a lot with epilepsy and anxiety. The problems are reasons CBD is being considered as a medicine for people; and now dogs!

Way cool. Take care

Re: “Finding peace and quiet in an Edisto River treehouse

Here it is, six years after this timeless article and interesting comments. I was alerted to this treasure while watching Treehouse Masters.
Are any of your treehouse beauties accessible to people with disabilities? My Godmother and I are nature lovers but both of us now use canes, crutches &/or walker depending on the severity of our pain levels.
Do you know of anyone who has handicapped accessible treehouses available in the SC, NC, GA AREA?
Thank you for your dedication to our precious and threatened world.

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Randall, the culture and the frequent lack of a two parent family is due to the fact that many in those racial communities live in poverty. That is why more needs to be done to spend on education for those races, than for us whites and Asians. So with more education, they should catch up with us in income, culture, and in having two parent families.

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Tom Martin- So we should spend more money on educating blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, Eskimos, Hawaiians, than we spend on educating whites and Asians, until they catch up with us. Really?

It is not the failure of the educators, its culture and lack of a two parent family. If you use your brain its easy to see, not just throwing money at a problem. Nothing can be done and it will never get better, my opinion.

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Ever-increasing crime.
Ever-increasing crime.
I read this sentiment all the time, and while I'm not surprised it doesn't make it true. Violent crime peaked in this country in the mid-90s and has fallen since. There are periods of up-drifts. There are certain crimes that jump against trends, and murder is currently one. However, we are not in the war zone that was the 80s and 90s. North Charleston used to be, for the record, reliably in the top 5 nationwide for violent crime and that has decreased as well, dramatically, for a variety of reasons including economic opportunity.

On the flip side, however, the community that cannot trust its police force to not react to a report of "mugging by 30-something black male" by treating any black male of any age as a prime suspect is a community held hostage by both the criminals that can exploit seeming anonymity to LEOs and the police themselves. Would you call the police to report a break-in if you justifiably feared that they might come in and arrest your own son or nephew because he fits the description of a "usual suspect?" The good people of North Charleston do want criminals investigated, caught and prosecuted within the confines of due process. But the trust cannot come when they feel that they're just as likely to be victimized as the criminals they report. The current USDOJ doesn't like that reality, so they'll wallpaper over it once again. I hope that makes you feel safe.

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Dale, of course a higher percentage of blacks than whites are committing crime in North Charleston, that is because a higher percentage of blacks is poor. So likewise for example a higher percentage of American Indians are committing crime in America, because many are poor. Of course few of those live in North Charleston. So they complain against the police mainly in states like Arizona, New Mexico, South Dakota. Races won't be equal in income until they are equal in education. So we should spend more money on educating blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, Eskimos, Hawaiians, than we spend on educating whites and Asians, until they catch up with us.

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

Look at the high percentage of the group who is doing the killings, robberies, and other crimes within the city. And then see the percentage of complaints against the police. Any correlation?

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

To the previous commenter: There is plenty of a crackdown on crime in North Charleston. But when a police officer misbehaves, he or she ought to be punished. After all, when some people, like many in the minority communities, feel they can't trust the police to do a good job, then they are less likely to report crimes to the police and fewer crimes get solved. And you want to use the National Guard? Is that even legal to use National Guard soldiers for law enforcement? What about the posse comitatus laws?

Re: “The slow death of the North Charleston Police Department’s federal review

This is political reteric. What is needed is a crackdown of the ever increading crime in North Charleston, tougher sentenses, and a constant presence on the streets of Law Enforcement. This can only be acvomplishrd by the State's National Guard to patrol the streets 24/7, until the danger to private citizens is reduced.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

Interesting article. But why the LGBQT slant? The underlying issue has little to do with that...or the headline should be rewritten.

The first two photos look like glamour shots and poor Bob just gets to stand there.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

Predictable contributors saying "get a job you lazy kid" without reading the article where they talk about them having jobs. But it was so easy back in the day. Just ten years ago, rent was 40% less than it is now, while income has only gone up 13% to compensate. Since I graduate college, tuition has gone up by about 300%! What is wrong with these freeloading kids these days? Harumph indeed. Why don't they have the wherewithal to personally drive market forces themselves?
