Re: “McLeod Plantation to grow Sea Island cotton for the first time since the 1920s

Fascinating story. I wonder what it would take to turn Sea Island Cotton into a major crop?

Re: “Meet the producers behind some of the Holy City's most extraordinary recordings

It's seeing articles like this that remind me how there are so few female music producers in the industry (5% or less), and even less that are celebrated or recognized. Maybe the dudes that are featured here can consider contributing to Women's Audio Mission or WomeninMusic and do what they can to close the gender gap:

It would be great if CCP could address this, too.

Re: “Mayor of New Orleans makes the case for removing Confederate monuments

Grandstanding hypocrite. Remove some old generals monuments but leave intact the statute and the main named square of the individual responsible for personally directing the extermination of the Creek, Seminole and Cherokee tribes, the man who created the Bataan Death March of the 19th century, the Trail of Tears, that bastard, Andrew Jackson.

Oh I wish I could be there. CHS and the Night Market mean the world to our son. Thank you, Charleston, for being such a wonderful, welcoming, open place.

Re: “S.C. attorney general joins nationwide investigation into opioid manufacturers

"As one of a handful of states where the amount of painkiller prescriptions outnumbers residents"

Whoa, say what? How does that happen legally? We getting out of state patients who come here for pain killer prescriptions? Sure would have liked to hear more on that point in this article, but they make the statement, and just let it hang.

Re: “Dylann Roof didn't win, but did we?

I agree with Jamie, I am glad this article, and the others were written. It is good to have open dialog to better understand each other. So many disagreed with my above comment, but apparently dialog is not what they wanted to have. So I sit here scratching my head over what it was they particularly disagreed with... and why.

Re: “Dylann Roof didn't win, but did we?

KJ, I feel hopeful just knowing that your brilliant and brave soul publishes this kind of work in Charleston. Thank you for being the necessary voice that names the exact things everyone needs to understand.

Hope, love, and equality are not secessionist values.

Re: “The Exposure Myth

I would donate work, and get frustrated with the $$ they got, auctioning the pieces.

I began just donating cash, and keeping my work.

Lately, though.. there's a cause I am devoted to that I DO donate to. They get the $$ I believe the work to be worth, and it gives me pleasure (though the 'exposure' part is ludicrous) to be able to help them make some money. For them, I donate without expectation of anything.

it's a well that's running dry, generally. New paradigms are needed. Artists seem to donate work that haven't sold for a while (understandable) and the whole auction becomes tired looking.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

let's back up to that cleanliness thing... the glass looks dirty so you don't want your lips to touch it, but if you have a straw you're willing to drink the liquid in the dirty glass???
..and Liberte, are you saying that Waffle House is dirty and unhealthy?

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

Vito, I blacklisted myself from Hall's four years ago after three uniformly bad experiences over a six month period, and William, I and many others can easily afford to eat at Hall's but choose to give our money to half a dozen other local places that serve superior quality meals and sincerely respect and appreciate their customers. Glad-handing snakes in the grass with offerings on the higher end of mediocre are not for me, I prefer the real thing.

In my expierence those that complain about Halls generally can't afford it. Never ever have I had a less than excellent meal or service. Might due Summerville some good to provide some quality non chain options to their residence finally!

Maybe LocalHutch could post his real name so the Halls could make sure to blacklist him from any of their establishments....
