FEEDBACK: New woodworking group starting in West Ashley

FEEDBACK: New woodworking group starting in West Ashley

Michael Kaynard, Charleston: “My interest in woodworking was purely defensive. I knew my wife would be retiring within the year and I needed a hobby.  When I was turning 65, I asked for a chop saw for my birthday. What I really wanted was a miter saw but didn’t know enough about tools to ask for the right tool.

“Now it’s been a year and a half or so and I have reached my limit of incompetence. I don’t like reading text or watching YouTube to learn new techniques. I need to be shown how to do things.”

FEEDBACK:   Three letters on guns and violence

FEEDBACK:   Three letters on guns and violence

Katharine DuV. Beard, Camden, S.C.: “Thank you for this paragraph in your article on gun control, ‘But don’t be fooled that banning bump stocks, which isn’t being completely pooh-poohed by the NRA, is real gun control. It’s a temporary concession to quell debate on bigger issues of real gun control. It’s part of the political game in Washington that assumes if you throw a little red meat to the voters, they won’t look at doing something more substantive and with more scope.’”

Other letters from Ben Moise of Charleston and George Wilson of Stone Mountain, Ga.

FEEDBACK:  On how things were and “barbaric” gun solution

FEEDBACK:    On roads and “Summertime”

FEEDBACK:    On roads and “Summertime”

Frank Scalise, Powdersville, S.C.: I believe the State of South Carolina has to consider a bottle bill and an increased tax on fast food. All proceeds of unreturned bottles and fast food tax should go to road clean-up with county and local roads as the main focus of clean-up. Just as not everyone has children in school but still is taxed to provide an educated society for our future, not everyone litters but we need to do something to provide a clean planet for our future.
