Re: “Charleston city leaders clash over specialized audit for racial bias in police department

@localhutch, if this "minor league bunch of complainers" is made up of Charleston taxpayers (spoiler: they are) then they ARE funding whatever the city does. It makes sense to me (and to the principles of civic engagement) that they have a strong voice in whatever that is. The public servants of Charleston should remember that.

Re: “Charleston needs an all-ages, mid-cap venue that caters to all genres

WTH? The Charleston Pour House is a 400 to 500 person venue that hosts hip-hop, punk rock, EDM, indie, Americana, country and so much more. The only genre I can think of that doesn't happen there is death metal. It's one of the best venues in the country (and has been voted so). Yes, there are cover bands sometimes, but it's also a venue that has fostered many of Charleston's finest. Shovels and Rope used to play in the Cuban restaurant that was part of the venue 8? years ago. It's 7 minutes from downtown. There's free music nightly on the smaller of the two stages. What more can you ask for?

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg thinks body cameras keep black people safe

"Further, given that officers are rarely indicted for and almost never convicted of killing Black people, even with video evidence, could it be that there is a concern that body cam video doesn't necessarily facilitate accountability, therefore there's little reason to file a formal complaint when nothing gets done? I'm not sure how else to say this, so here goes: Body cameras do not protect Black people. Video evidence does not ensure justice."

FACTS.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: The End, Again.

Thank you for making me laugh after every episode. I love Southern Charm but I think I love your recaps even more! Both are crazy fun.

Re: “The Agenda: Tebow promoted from Fireflies; Haley booed at NYC Pride; Nuclear plant without timeline

Pretty low of the gays to boo Nikki Haley! Give me a break. Shows how stupid they are. And narrow minded. She is the first UN Ambassador that stuck up for Israel and gave it to the UN for being anti Semitic for all these years. And this administration will not stand for it. Not like the last administration.

Shows absolutely no class on the gays to boo her. She had done nothing wrong to them, other than to be appointed by him. Did they forget she took down the confederate flag at the Capital. What narrow minded nudnicks.

Re: “Charleston County School Board gives initial approval to $14,000 pay increase for board members

Always thought these positions were part of volunteer/community service. Even though I do not reside in Charleston County, I found the comments of the school board member who is a barber re his income/ etc. to justify the increase in CCSB members' "salary increases," a sad excuse. My father always said, "If you can't afford to do it, don't and don't make excuses for any of it."

Re: “UPDATE: 30+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

I remember when I was a kid back in the 1960's we had paper straws in school for our milk. I think we should look into going back to those. They were lightly waxed as I recall to help them hold their shape. They could be made of recycled paper and they would be sustainable and biodegradable. Sometimes the old ways really were better!

Re: “The Agenda: Tebow promoted from Fireflies; Haley booed at NYC Pride; Nuclear plant without timeline

St. Lucie (FL) Mets and fans got the "promotion". With all due respect to TT, you don't promote a lackluster player so the only reason I can fathom is other teams in more respectable states want to "cash in" on his celebrity. Unless TT requested the change himself, of course, but we don't know because few details have been reported. Anyway, Good Luck, TT, and hope your game improves.

Re: “Rutledge Cab Co. offers up a hearty take on the doughnut burger, but is it worth the experience?

dustin waters? this is the same guy who critiques "southern charm"? his desire to fall short of dave barry is groan worthy as it is. to have any opinion on food made by professionals is not laughable but sad for a paper who desires any respect...this guy does not deserve a pulpit...he needs a bus pass.

Re: “Gentry Bar & Room packs flavor, but lacks focus

All you need to know about this place is it is run by JD Madison (same actor seen sometimes on the Southern Charm tv show). Go to www.charlestoncounty.org and look up the public records under the Clerk of Court section under this guys name. No commentary needed by me.
