Re: “VIDEO: Biking across the Ashley River bridge

What can be scarier than the bridge itself is crossing the road on the West Ashley side if you're headed down Folly Road.

I was wondering what I said about this in this story from 2007, and found this...

"I even enjoy crossing the narrow sidewalk on Highway 17 over the Ashley. It's nice to feel what the water and wind are doing, and it gets me inspired to kayak or sail after work (alternative transportation methods that ironically require my car to utilize)."…

What's scarier than any of that is riding a motorcycle across the grate in the middle of the bridge. Talk about squirrelly

Re: “The Oxford American gets a grip on Alabama

The undeniable highlight of the compilation has to be "Rubber Room" by Rev. Fred Lane and Ron 'Pate's Debonairs.

Re: “Escaping to Charleston's mother colony, Barbados

Thanks Charles - that generalization was gleamed from notes taken during a tour at CharlesTowne landing, and I evidently messed it up or didn't write down enough when I went back to it later. Correction noted!

Re: “S.C. offshore drilling debate continues with new emphasis on natural gas

A decision in Virginia this week could indicate that S.C. has little to gain monetarily from drilling in federal waters off our coast. Congress, not the MMS or S.C., will make the decision of who gets what. Although the current figure is tentatively set at 37.5 percent (the story says 'up to 50' because Sen. Jim DeMint has a bill in Congress to set it at that), with the federal budget the way it is, it could be nothing.

Bill to funnel offshore drilling royalties dies in the Senate

Legislation that would dedicate future royalties from possible offshore drilling for natural gas and oil more than 50 miles off Virginia's coast to a variety of state efforts was killed by a Senate panel today.

Del. Chris Saxman, R-Staunton, carried the bill, HB1633, which would have directed a portion of future drilling royalties to transportation, energy research and Chesapeake Bay cleanup programs, among others.

The long-running offshore drilling debate intensified last year as gas prices surged. Also last year, presidential and congressional moratoria that had prevented drilling were lifted. Around the same time, federal officials indicated that offshore activity could begin by 2011.

President Barack Obama's administration hasn't been as hawkish on offshore drilling as that of his predecessor.

Earlier this month, Obama said he wants a more comprehensive strategy for energy development before East Coast offshore drilling is approved.

Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple, D-Arlington, called Saxman's bill unnecessary at present.

"It doesn't affect Virginia's position on offshore drilling," she said, calling the future royalties that would be dedicated by Sawman's bill "mythical money."
