Re: “The Case Against Wal-Mart

I think the expansion is a terrible idea. Not only will undermine the sustainibility of the James Island business community and destroy some very ecologically important areas, it will also change the character of the people who live on James Island. Easier access to downtown and a giant Wal-Mart are harbingers of the homogonized, materialistic, unaware and uncaring types. If you really are interested in getting dirt cheap, high-quality then food join a CSA. They DELIVER fresh local poduce to your door every week and usually for less than half the price you would pay at the stores. It's the ultimate in convenient, fresh, sustainable and cheap eating. See the article "Harvest of Plenty" in this weeks edition for more information.

Re: “Harvest of Plenty

This is fantastic! I recently moved here from Seattle where I was a CSA member and loved it. Every week a box of fresh, beautiful produce arrived on my doorsetp. Everything tastes SO much better when it is fresh out of a garden. No mushy peaches or tasteless tomatoes. Not to mention fruits & veggies are more nutritious when picked at their peak and consumed right away. It also challenged my culinary skills - occasionally there would something I didn't recognize but figuring out how to prepare it was fun. Dinner was once again an affair to look forward to. I ate better, learned new techniques and felt more connected to the farming community - if there was a hail storm, I'd fret about the field crops just as much as my car's paint job. All in all, the CSA is a wonderful way to improve the quality of your life and health and that of the community too. I will be joining poste-haste!

Re: “Bicycle Thieves

I just moved here a few weeks ago from out of state, along with my beloved Specialized Expedition. I had been told to register it with the police but before I got around to it (it seemed like an odd thing to do coming from a city of 2 million where I'd never had a problem) - it disappeared off my gated front porch. In broad daylight and while I was home! Welcome to Charleston. I called the police who tried really, really hard to convince me not to bother them with filing a police report as I was never going to see my bike again anyway. For a city that prides itself on being genteel, I truly do not understand why they seem to do nothing to stem the epidemic. At a minimum there should be a database accessible to citizens of bike serial numbers that pass through pawn shops. Something to help those of us who have been robbed. If you see a really nice brilliant blue and silver Specialized with a sticker from Gregg's Cycle on it, let me know... Thanks
