I was ashamed to be a councilman after the vote taken at the council meeting on June 14 regarding the final reading of an ordinance to amend the town’s Comprehensive Plan that would allow Trident Academy to sell their property to a developer who would build 19 homes, preserve the school’s future and provide two acres of green space …

I’m dismayed, but not surprised, with the continuing dishonesty of some media outlets and anti-gun advocates, including some politicians, who continue to report on and condemn the so-called “Charleston loophole” in existing U.S. gun laws. Some of these people claim vociferously that this “loophole” allowed an …

Many in Mount Pleasant are unhappy with congestion and traffic; on June 16 we can try something a little different. North Mount Pleasant residents who work downtown can ride CARTA’s Express 2 bus from the Oakland Walmart park-and-ride lot for free. The No. 2 also stops at the Wando Crossing Walmart, and all the other Mount Pleasant routes …

I would like to respond to a recent letter to the editor, titled “Baloney.” In an amazing tirade, the author blames “right wing politicians,” the “tea party,” the “nutty right” and anybody else who isn’t some kind of left wing extremist or “progressive” for causing the …

“The debate is settled,” says Obama. You can bet that when anyone says the climate debate is over, the issue has become political. I’m already a skeptic when today’s global warming hype centers on the theory that CO2, as a pollutant, is the sole driver of global warming. CO2 is a trace gas and not a pollutant. Without …

At last Tuesday’s council meeting, May 10, the most important project to date involving our infrastructure in regards to improvements to Coleman Blvd. was voted on and passed by a 5-4 vote. The vote should not have been that close as needed drainage and safety measures to Coleman Blvd. that have been in the making for nine years were the …

How disappointing to see that your newspaper chose to print the ‘conservative cartoonist’ Catalino cartoon of Hillary (actually looked more like FDR’s wife, Eleanor) on the same page that included letters to the mayor from local second-graders. I imagine there were a lot of kids reading the Letters to the Editor page last week, …

Charleston is by far one of my favorite cities in the U.S. Every time I visit, I am captivated by its history, architecture, delicious southern cooking, and beautiful sunsets. Much of the city’s charm comes from the community’s sense of Lowcountry pride. Interestingly, I have noticed that the cultural identity of many locals is …

Recent headlines, appropriate for April Fools Day, proudly proclaim that the legal fight over Shem Creek and a proposed office building has been resolved. Resolved? Since when do taxpayers have to pay $9,000 in legal fees for a frivolous and ridiculous lawsuit brought by the Save Shem Creek group and you call that resolved? There are four new …

I would like to take this opportunity to say the town of Mount Pleasant has changed - changed for the worse. I live next to the construction going up on the corner of Rifle Range Road and Coleman Boulevard. This has been a headache for over three months now. The construction begins promptly at 7 a.m. and goes until way after dinner time, 7 - 8 p.m. …

I understand what State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman is talking about in the March 15 Post and Courier front-page article, but sometimes you really wonder when it is time to stop talking and getting quoted and quit while you are ahead. The less said, the better.

Monday, March 21, 2016 10:22 a.m.

The March 16 Post & Courier article covering short term rentals, as discussed at the Mount Pleasant Planning and Development Committee on March 15 contains just enough to wonder if anyone has a clue about anything.

The Save Shem Creek Corp. recently released a YouTube video that is an apparent historical documentary on the politics surrounding Shem Creek. I’m usually very suspicious of anything with seemingly political overtones and always want to see the facts before I form an opinion. Unfortunately, the facts found in this video have left me feeling …

Republican politicians and candidates like to talk about the responsibility of the government to the voters. However, they now seem to feel no responsibility at all to the voters who elected President Obama by a majority of both the popular vote and the electoral college. These voters elected him to a four-year term which is not yet over. These …

I agree wholeheartedly with the criticisms expressed in Moultrie News Editor Sully Witte’s editorial this month on the “secret meeting” to vote on conducting due diligence on “improvements” to Shem creek. Aren’t there more pressing problems that need to be addressed by our cash-strapped town? Do council …

A recent letter to the editor contains many innuendos couched in words like “there is a perception” or “it would seem prudent” in explaining what really are disappointing half-truths, couched in a sarcastic tone, concerning the Mayor of Mount Pleasant and the fact that her last name is the same as two businesses on …

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.
