The next stop for the project named The Atlantic is the Planning Committee of council and then to the full council for consideration.
The National Response Center (NRC), a branch of the U.S. Coast Guard, collects information regarding hazardous waste spills. By law, oil companies are required to report all spills to the NRC. However, even the NRC admits that only a fraction, 25 percent by some estimates, of actual oil spills are reported.
Approximately two years ago, I wrote a letter here that questioned two issues in the design of the widened Highway 17.
We live in a world of GPS mapping, yet the Town of Mount Pleasant seems unable to locate one of its most important zoning boundaries – one designated to protect historic Shem Creek.
After reading the recent articles in the Post and Courier concerning South Carolina being rated No. 1 in the percentage of DUI fatalities nationwide, I’d like to make a suggestion using a course of action that has proven to be successful.
For a change I just finished reading the Post and Courier’s Feb. 9 article about the Charleston City Planning Commission meeting on the Sgt. Jasper redevelopment plan and once again public participation broke down into an “unseemly vocal wrestling match”. If I am to understand the article, the meeting was so unruly that the …
We have followed with interest the articles by Prentiss Findlay and Robert Behre on The Atlantic project on the causeway in Mount Pleasant.
To the Mount Pleasant Town Council, Mayor Linda Page, and the residents of Cooper Estates, Millwood and the Groves:
“Tales of Valor,” a fascinating story by Sully Witte in the Feb. 4 Moultrie News. If it were “fleshed out” a bit more, it would make a first-class novel. Or movie. Let’s see, George Clooney? Nope, too old. Bradley Cooper maybe.
My name is Mike Poirier and I own Mount Pleasant Music on Lansing Drive. I am a lifetime resident. My business and others in the Lansing Plaza will be negatively affected by this plan.
The following Pastoral Letter from the Right Reverend Charles G. vonRosenberg has been issued this afternoon. A letterhead copy is attached, and you can also find this on our website. Thank you.
Thanks Moultrie News for looking at the future on Sullivan’s Island and emphasizing quality of life. The island has an opportunity to focus on the issues stated in Dustin Water’s article of Jan. 7, 2015. Islanders voted for a quiet, family-oriented residential community that considers visitors as fellow stewards and not blaming them …
The Moultrie News recently had some very interesting discussions by some of the town leaders.
Will Rogers once said, “It isn’t what we don’t know that gives us trouble; it’s what we know that ain’t so.”
The movement to “Save” would be much more effective if there were sound alternative plans to the current cries of “Stop.”
As an elected Mount Pleasant Town Council member, I steadfastly oppose a proposed change in our law offered by Mayor Page that would require an elected council member to have the backing and support of two additional members of Town Council before an item could be placed on the regular agenda for Town Council meetings. I urge my fellow council …
It’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those about our health. Although gun violence remains the leading cause of death among young people, our most dangerous weapon is still our fork. Forty-five times as many die of chronic diseases linked to a diet containing animal products, sugar and salt.
A recent letter to the editor titled “Body camera” deserves comment. When law enforcement employs deadly force against the public, the officer involved is but one, albeit critical, link in powerful fundamental web of responsibilities. The public remains armored by constitutional liberties and protection, and only under the most dire and serious of …
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This piece of ancient wisdom is so meaningful to us at Louie’s Kids this time of year. What we know 14 years later in the childhood obesity crisis is that it is more worthwhile to teach someone to do something than to do it for them.
“When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.” – Matthew 2:10-11
Each year, East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO) provides portable oil filled heaters to our low-income elderly clients. In the past, we have purchased heaters from a “big box” store. They gave us a 10 percent discount.
Soon President Obama will pardon two turkeys to promote the turkey industry. Every one of us can exercise that same pardon power by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance. It’s a most fitting way to give thanks for our own life, health and happiness.
It was with great sadness I learned of the elimination of the College of Charleston swimming and diving team. More and more, college swimming and diving teams are being cut across the nation due to so called “budget constraints.” Clemson cut their program in 2012. Their excuse was Clemson could not afford to build a 50-meter pool in order for the …
It has become obvious that the two-party political system has been corrupted. Technology provides us with a simple and effective solution to the level of corruption that now exists between both parties and the press whose responsibilities have been compromised. The common denominator in this political corruption, and abdication of moral judgment …
I am often critical of our local and national government agencies for how slowly the wheels of bureaucracy turn and how long it often takes for positive action to occur. But I also believe in quickly giving praise when praise is due. Here is a great example of a super quick “government” response that had an immediate and drastic impact on the …
I am a bit disappointed at the ill-advised letter that was published in the Oct. 25 issue of the Post and Courier, as it questions the validity and purpose, either directly or indirectly, of the current Mount Pleasant Town Council and mayor. Last I looked, there were close to 80,000 people living in this town and less than 4,000 signatures, or …
I would like to take a moment to thank my fellow council members for supporting the efforts of residents of the north area of Mount Pleasant to place a roundabout rather than a traffic light on the corner of Bessemer Road and Park West Boulevard. As a resident of Park West, I drive that road nearly every day and endure long lines of traffic.
(Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to an article written by Suzannah Smith Miles entitled “Our historic plantation lands.”)
