Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

Charleston's printed accolades are not doing more harm than good. Yes, our infrastructure is suffering and it has been for a long time. Luckily the gas tax passed and road projects will start churning in the next few years. Like the writer states, the Rust Belt cities have lost key industries and now those cities are noticeably shrinking. Therefore, I would think it would be wise to not shew away tourists as tourism is a key industry of Charleston. Charleston is a wonderful place that is full of activities and entertainment. We should be happy that we live in a place that is on the rise, unlike the rust belt.

That's because 526 is a solution for the terrible traffic through the Savannah/Folly/Maybank corridor. The land it is cutting through is already developed or already planned to be developed.

Re: “Jury sides with family of CofC grad Sarah Jones in wrongful death lawsuit

Let me get this straight. A film crew, knowingly, trespassed onto railroad property to shoot a movie. They filmed on a live railroad and believe it's the railroad company's fault for the killing? It would take a train at least a mile to stop at that speed and they should stop because some people want to shoot a movie? Screw that. Get the heck out of the way.

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.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham reserved in reaction to WaPo scoop; Gowdy out of FBI running; SC-5 runoff today

I read through the NC voter ID laws and I don't understand what the big deal was. They offered free ID's to anyone who didn't have a driver's license, passport, etc. People over 70 weren't required. Absentee ballots were still a thing. Showing an ID to go vote doesn't seem like a crazy concept to me.
