Re: “Robert Lange Studios

RLS is truly a wonderful place to hangout and enjoy some great fine art. Every aspect of the gallery is beautiful - especially the spirits of founders Robert & Megan. Whether you are a high end collector looking for the next masterpiece, or just looking to take a break and enjoy your latte, definitely stop in to look around. There is no prejudice or judgment here - simply love and kindness, so make sure a visit here is on your to-do list next time you are in the area.

Re: “Support your neighborhood cafe, or you may lose it

Affordability is the main reason I don't go to neighborhood places like Park Cafe, Little Jacks, Edmunds, B&B, etc on the regular.... they are just too pricey for regular dinner meals, regardless of how tasty their food may be. A couple $3 tacos with free chips and salsa from Santis is definitely more accessible.

Re: “What can Charleston learn from what East of the Cooper has lost?

Even though a thousand new residents will be less than a mile from a large commercial area (Town Center) full of shops and restaurants, I guarantee nearly everyone will still drive across Highway 17 because so little is done to create safe ways to cross. Just like Park West and Carolina Park, once again the City (and State) missed a great opportunity to properly plan and build smart development. Surely residents of Mt Pleasant will continue to complain about the "increased traffic" caused by "high-density housing", yet none of these complainers will be advocating for more sidewalks and crosswalks, expanded bike paths, dedicated transit lanes or other safe alternatives. Housing is not the problem people; lack of safe, modern infrastructure is what's really causing the Charleston region so much pain.

Re: “State lawmaker takes aim at rising rents

Rather than interfering with the housing side of the equation, elected officials should address the lack affordable wages instead. And as nofaith said earlier, there are plenty of houses in the region below the median price; they just aren't necessarily in the heart of the area. If the State/County actually invested in better transit options, people could live where they could afford it, while still easily get to/from their jobs. That said, there definitely needs to be more "affordable housing" as well, but developers can only contribute so much. The government will need to pay for most of it, which can easily be done if they stopped focusing over a billion dollars in road expansion projects (which only fatten the pockets of preferred contractors/politicians' families.) There is no one fix for this issue and it will take a combination of changes.

Re: “Ginny Deerin for Charleston Mayor

Great endorsement, not only because Ginny is a well qualified leader, but because she is a wonderful person with great compassion for all people. Our city will continue to improve ad grow in a positive direction with such a good-hearted, caring and strong leader like her.

Re: “Mayoral candidates talk nightlife at first-ever F&B forum

Ginny Deerin is clearly the people's mayor who will work to make a positive difference - especially for F&B people. Leon is ego-driven and just trying to pad his resume as a career politician (while also repaying some political favors he owes his buddies in Columbia)...and John just wants the inside track to development projects for he and his friends.
