Re: “New SmartCards now available for peninsula's parking meters

All while there are raising rent costs for downtown shopkeepers! Brilliant! That has to be the best way to tank our local economy! good job. There will be plenty of more parking spots in a few years if they keep up decisions like this.

We should have more free parking on the penninsula, unless you guys continue to want retailers on king street to close down every year

Re: “New SmartCards now available for peninsula's parking meters

Greedier and Greedier.


You people are asking too much from your citizens.
They are trying to kill off our businesses downtown so Tanger outlet can take it all! Pigs!!

Like people are going to continue to want to go downtown if after a while they start realizing it is at least 8 dollars a pop to find a garage just to go shopping.

Re: “An open letter to Scrooge McTrump

In retrospect I think Trump was just telling people what they wanted to hear on the Yorktown, as he hasn't been as HORRIBLE as OBAMA who acted opposed. What scares me is how OBAMA could allow the creation of ISIS, and use it as a pretext to commit genocide on the Syrian people.

It hasn't even been a year under Trump's administration, and ISIS is almost extinct. He didn't allow this terroristic genocidal group of jhadists to continue for 8 years of his presidency by acting as if it were an uncontrollable accident (The OBAMA ADMINISTRATION secretly coordinated, helped create, and funded ISIS).

Trump just seems to call out a problem as he sees it when he comes across it, and he is demonized by the WAR MONGERING MEDIA for doing it.

Re: “Best of Charleston 2018 nominations are open with a few new categories

Best dance studio deserves to be in the categories. So many of them like Dance Lab and others put themselves out EVERY year for performances at your events and others that its insulting theyre not included.

Also best Barber (different than Hair stylist)

Re: “School board members' kids shouldn't get special treatment

Why do we even have magnet schools for bright children? They then have the advantage of a better education than the rest of the children, who after all, are more needy of a good education than the bright children. Now if we were to spend less money on magnet schools than on other schools, less money on salaries of teachers in magnet schools, then I guess I could understand the need for magnet schools, to try to benefit the less bright kids. But that is not what is happening. Just because I was a bright kid, that does not mean I should have benefited by having good teachers. I would have done well in school even with poor teachers.

Re: “Charleston-based Yik Yak co-founder set to launch The Q, a competitor to HQ Trivia

"All that growth has made it hard for the game to keep up, leading to a ton of laggy video, unhappy players, and even canceled games." Guess, what the same thing happens with this app, but instead of 200,000 players there's barely 1,000 and it is still super laggy. This app is such a blatant and pathetic ripoff of HQ.

Re: “Wood & Grain is pizza heavy, but itโ€™s the seafood that shines

This reviewer must have eaten at a different restaurant than the one I have come to know and love. One can almost sense that she was in a bad mood before she ever even looked at the menu. Whoever heard of grousing over the location of a place, as if it were a sin to be located in a strip mall? Famous French chef, Ludo Lefebvre (featured on the Netflix, Mind of a Chef) has two restaurants in a strip mall in LA. He praises such a location because of the freedom it offers to express yourself with less financial pressure. I can only assume that Ms. Wolf must have been with less-than-intriguing dinner guests the night she ate there if all she could do is gaze out the window at the parking lot.
But, on to the food... The ceviche is perhaps the best Ive ever had anywhere. The menu clearly states that it has habanero. One could simply request the dish without it. As I have aged, I have become less tolerant of heat than I used to be, and this dish had just enough habanero to enhance the flavors without being obtrusive. The octopus was incredible! Portion size was enough that all 5 members of our party had a nice sample the first night we went there. The salad that Ms. Wolf complains about as being over-dressed is heavenly! Every pizza we've ever gotten there including the Margharita was exceptional.
Why should anyone complain that they are given choices of seafood, salads, and pizzas? I cannot for the life of me see why Ms. Wolf would rather have limited choices so that she could label a restaurant more efficiently. Ms. Wolf, I hear a Dennys calling your name. That would perhaps be more to your liking.

Re: “School board members' kids shouldn't get special treatment

"Allowing one minority into the school because her father is on the school board will do nothing to curb the lack of diversity in Charleston's elite magnet programs. That can only be accomplished by publicly identifying this lack as a problem and crafting policies that combat it."

These schools have certain standards that need to be met to get in. Maybe these standards need to be lowered.

Re: “An open letter to Scrooge McTrump

Thank you Jeremy. Well said. Unfortunately you are correct about Senators Scott and Graham who have turned their backs on their constituents with their tax giveaway to the rich at the expense of their constituents. Shame on them.

Re: “History Commission approves toned-down version of Calhoun plaque

Interesting. From a DEMOCRACY PROTECTING FREEDOM OF SPEECH

You guys at City Paper now love all of our national news trends! Following all the trends NATIONAL NEWS does just like your supposed to even if it is veiled racism.
Charleston City Paper even went as far as using computers to applaud Barrack Obama a few weeks ago in an article for "speaking so well"(even though on the surface the title acted like it was lauding Nikki Haley).

https://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/TheBat…

IT IS LIKE A MODERN DAY ARTICLE IN EUGENICS. You people need to check your moral compass before you sign your soul over to the devil to do his publicity.

These robots were programmed racist obviously. Most robots I know just like to do their job.

Interesting hypocrisy.

I thought our government supported FREEDOM OF SPEECH and FREEDOM OF INFORMATION????

So are we supposed to think Russian NEWS can be described as HACKING our elections?
