Re: “The invisible damage done by Charleston's smoking ban

I was told I had emphysema in 1987 when I was 45 years old. I smoked for 30 years, but quit smoking as soon as I was told that I had COPD. Quitting smoking was the hardest thing I ever did. But I knew I would die if I didn't. My health was getting so bad that I needed oxygen 24/7 and was down to 92lbs. Thankfully, in 1999 I got lung volume reduction surgery. It saved my life. I no longer needed oxygen and was able to climb stairs, dance, and travel the world. That good fortune lasted for almost 13 years. I am now back on oxygen 24/7 and can't climb stairs, dance or travel the world. i searched for alternative treatment Online i was introduced to Health herbal clinic by a friend here in the United states she told me they have successful herbal treatment to Emphysema and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the COPD herbal formula and commenced usage, its totally unexplainable how all the symptoms totally dissapeared, my cough was gone and i no longer experience shortness of breath(dyspnea), contact this herbal clinic via their email Info@ healthherbalclinic. net Or website www. healthherbalclinic. net Herbs are truely gift from God

Re: “After 16 years in business, Cypress restaurant will close for good Sun. May 28

It's sad to see Cypress close. It was always one of our favorite places. Craig's passion for food, and especially charcuterie, will be missed.

Re: “Come to Rodney Scott's for the 'cue, stay for the catfish sandwich

I have been here a few times now and have tried the pork and the catfish along with greens. It has been great every time I go. Rodney's is only one of two Q places I frequent and you are definitely missing out on great cooking if you have not been yet. Thank you for coming to Charleston Mr. Scott! We love your family's cooking!

Re: “Come to Rodney Scott's for the 'cue, stay for the catfish sandwich

Putting in a word, here, for the ribeye sandwich and the potato salad, which is a mustardy rendition that could have appeared at any of the church picnics of my childhood. Those greens are truly a masterpiece, and the catfish sandwich is a good reason to go there. I agree that the BBQ pork is hit or miss and kind of depends on the time of day. But it's full of flavor, and the prices are right. I love the place!

Re: “Former owner of La Fourchette plans new French restaurant on Bogard

I knew Perig Goulet well from his days at La Fourchette. He's an arrogant, moody, average at best French chef who has a big chip on his shoulder because he has never been a success in his culinary career now approaching his late 50's. I wish he would have left Charleston and brought his "skills" to another city, but we'll have to put up with another one of his attempts at failure. Nothing to see here.

Re: “New ad from McDonald’s UK provides a startling glimpse into South Carolina life

We've never heard of the "South Carolina stack"! She may have had one, at a different restaurant. By the way we've lived in South Carolina for over 40 years and visit our Micky D's (McDonald's) quite often.

Re: “Charleston diners, stop asking servers this question

The thing is that the typical level of "service" is, in my experience, so execrable that when people encounter somebody who is half on the ball they can only assume that they're on the way to something else.

Re: “The Agenda: S.C.'s radioactive landfill; New ethics probe bigger than 'Lost Trust'?; Moped rules sharpened

The Savannah River Site in Aiken, SC? You mean the one Barack Hussein Obama "scrapped"? Obama's best buddy, Vladimir Putin, backed out of a treaty with the U.S. to safely dispose of 34 metric tons of weapons grade plutonium (SOURCE This is after Obama did Putin a favor by backing out of the missile defense system in Eastern Europe which Putin opposed (OBAMA-RUSSIA COLLUSION!). Obama did Putin many favors, only the FAKE NEWS media never wanted to report it. The plant is Aiken, SC was abandoned by Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood counseled administration.

World Food Program? Listen, most of us are having a hard enough time putting food on the table for our own families. I mean, those of us who aren't stealing from taxpayers and having taxpayers pay for our own meals via the food stamp program which should be renamed the "rob peter to pay for paul's food program." If you are such a bleeding heart humanitarian, try reaching into your own pocket to provide food for the whole world. There's so many redundant food welfare programs (both private and public) it is hard to believe anyone is actually starving in America. In matter of fact, we have an obesity problem. Most of the people on food stamps are obese. What part of 'America First' do you not understand? Because Venezuelans voted in a Communist (Hugo Chavez) and there wasn't any incentive for anyone to go into business and open a bakery because, you know, "capitalism is evil," now it is my responsibility to feed all the commies in Venezuela because their government rationed bread lines stretch miles? Where's all the liberal democrat progressive neo-marxists who supported Hugo Chavez? Sean Penn, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Campbell, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, Courtney Love, Jesse Jackson, and the rest of the liberal losers?

And where in the Constitution does it say that it is the Federal Government's job to feed the rest of the world? Do you even know what the enumerated powers are? These are charity functions that government not only should NOT be doing, but isn't even GOOD at doing! Every welfare program government operates has a ridiculously high overhead. Only a small fraction of the money government spends on these welfare programs actually makes it to the people who need it! I urge you to start your own not-for-profit and engage in these philanthropies yourself if you believe so strongly in them! If only Democrats donated as much in charity as Republicans did...Or, here's an idea; donate to the Clinton Foundation since they're supposedly saving the world. You can contribute alongside the $143.5 million the Foundation received from investors in the Russian company Uranium One. Russia-Clinton Conspiracy!

Could you imagine if Trump had received $140+ million from Russian donors? All you have are allegations that someone in Russia might have paid a few thousand dollars for Flynn's travel costs. You alt-left snowflakes are hilariously hypocritical and conspiratorial.

And regarding mopeds, how long until you liberal democrat progressive neo-marxist fascists require us to register bicycles and scooters? Maybe I should register my push lawn mower too? More laws, more fees, more permits. "Gub'mint keeps me safe!" It's what you guys love. How many extra bureaucrats should we hire to administrate the new moped rules? Add 40% extra for the cost of their benefits. You guys claim to be against the "one percent" but continue to empower them and increase the debt you owe to them.

Hate to see this place go, one of the classics in Charleston, unlike some of the newer offerings!

Re: “Halls Chophouse adding 34 seats with addition of new upstairs dining room

The tourists flock to this place, while the locals laugh! Forget about the Charleston version of the Adams family that runs the place, the weirdest, most eccentric people you will ever meet, but the drinks are way overpriced, like double other places, and the steaks are mail order Allen Bros. steaks marketed as some amazing cuts of beef. Tourists are so dumb they think the Halls family i.e. Adams family are Charleston natives, little do they know they came here in 2009 after one failed business attempt in the hospitality industry after another in multiple US cities. Sadly, the jokes on us, the people of Charleston.

Re: “School superintendent faces backlash over teacher evaluations, blames staff miscommunication

Teachers should be evaluated. Test scores should not be the only evaluation but they should be a 50/50 part of it. Teachers are there to educate, so I think it's fair to have test scores as part of their evaluation.
