The word “conservative” has been used as a bludgeon to undermine the bona fides of Donald Trump. The National Review, the scriptures of the conservative doctrine, has published a radical denunciation of Donald Trump. The editors and contributors of that publication have joined together to reveal the warts and blemishes of Mr. …

The excitement and energy of the presidential campaign also comes with worry over low voter turnout and political apathy, especially among millennials. My AP government class at Wando High School poses no such threat to democracy.

If a few officials were upset, and these are the same people that planned, scrutinized and approved the shocking pop-up box condo apartment complex, then I applaud the new council. Shock `em.

I have a differing opinion on the office building/parking garage being built near Shem Creek. There will be two floors of offices, which could be occupied by folks who live down the street at The Boulevard, The Groves or the Old Village. These folks could ride their bike to work, stop at Vintage Coffee to grab a cup, swing by Page’s Okra …

In a recent “Sully’s Scoop” article in the Moultrie News, a Mount Pleasant resident asked how the town can use results of a 2009 traffic study to evaluate the impact of proposed new developments. Good question!

Eminent domain allows a government body to buy land for the public good. The office building at Shem Creek is not for the public good.

Lucy Beckham has likely been more of a positive influence on more people, students and citizens of this community - perhaps the entire state - than any other single person in the state of South Carolina. In honor of Lucy, the least we can do is change the name of the high school - that she built, nurtured, cultivated and loved with every fiber of …

On Dec. 4, the East Cooper Newcomer’s Club packaged and sent 20 boxes of baked goods to our soldiers overseas. This is done monthly through our Treats for Troops initiative. We bring the boxes to the Isle of Palms Post Office, and Dave, a post office employee, takes care of us. He is always fun and makes the task easier.

I was recently quoted in the Post and Courier as saying that more green space in our Town is more important than more ball fields. It’s much more important than ball fields and here’s why.

In the Nov. 19 Post and Courier there is an article discussing the reasons for the failure of the Mount Pleasant Referendum. First off, I want to say that I voted for the referendum and supported it. There is a quote in the article by the co-chair of the Mount Pleasant Community Arts Core Committee, “Too many items were included. More than …

There was only one new Sullivan’s Island Council member who stuck by their campaign pledge at the Tuesday, Oct. 20 council meeting. All council members had been contacted with letters outlining controversial procedural issues in dealing with zoning changes and precedent- setting long range planning which ignored future impact. The irony of …

We can help the Town of Mount Pleasant get their priorities straight. Don’t get me wrong, I think recreation is important and it would be great to have additional facilities. But it’s not at the top of the list right now. Voting Yes on this referendum is sending the wrong message. We need the Town Council focused on managing growth …

First let me say that I do not believe that the members of city council have horns and tails. I do believe that they think differently than I do on certain subjects. I do believe in capitalism but not at my expense. Why do I have to pay to have someone else move into Mount Pleasant? I do believe in growth for Mount Pleasant but not the high …

From what I read in a recent letter to the editor, candidates are damned it they do and damned if they do not. If the writer feels that no one can give him the iron-clad guarantee that everything will be fixed, and that none of them are aware of the “cutsey” “big picture”, may I suggest that the next time I see a …

The election is nearly a month away and it is still impossible to distinguish the messages of the candidates. They all are going to “work for us” They are all going to make MP the “best place to live as it once was” They are all going to “lower taxes”,” handle money responsibly, “widen …

Remember all the pie in the sky, ‘recycle baby, recycle baby; it’s green baby, its green baby; no more climate change’ and all the other wonderful statements by our paid advisers, consultants, and experts as they walked away with a nice bag of change after agreeing with the politicos who wanted those conclusions in the first …

Isle of Palms managed parking is a plan to waste our tax dollars. Council paid Stantec thousands of dollars last Memorial Day (2014) to study what we already knew about parking and traffic. Now they want to spend $1.2 million of our money over 10 years to implement a plan that will do nothing to alleviate the traffic problems. But it will add 180 …

It was recently reported that SCE&G has increased electricity rates for its ratepayers by 26% since 2010 (“Big utility rate hikes need more scrutiny,” Post & Courier, June 28) marking the seventh such rate hike tied to the construction of two nuclear reactors at V.C.
