FEEDBACK:  A glimmer of hope

FEEDBACK: A glimmer of hope

Michael Kaynard, Charleston: “Over the past 18 months or so, our country has had to endure some of the most polarizing rhetoric in recent history. I have tortured myself by listening to an overload of trash talk that resulted in the election of Donald Trump as our next president. There has been a great deal of anguish over this result and many seem to have lost hope.”

FEEDBACK: On books for kids, President Obama

FEEDBACK: On books for kids, President Obama

George Graf: What a fabulous program. Getting children to enter pre-school or kindergarten on a much more level playing field is key to helping the early disadvantaged to keep up with their peers. Pouring money into school “catch up” programs for the lives of the disadvantaged students only seems to make a small dent in closing their peer gap.

FEEDBACK:  Thanks for the reminder

FEEDBACK: Thanks for the reminder

From S.C. Rep. Dwight Loftis: Thanks for reminding us of McMaster’s position from his 2010 race for Governor. You referenced his statement that “the governor’s race is not about individuals but about this state.” It is incumbent that every person elected to public office adopt this priority. To your another point, which is crucial to our state, “he urged long-term thinking and development of a unified, strategic plan for South Carolina”.

FEEDBACK: Comments function being tested at CharlestonCurrents.com

We’ve resisted turning on the comments function on the CharlestonCurrents.com website because of all of the spam that comes through. But we turned them on recently and got seven comments to last week’s commentary by Andy Brack on not getting conned in a local school board race.

FEEDBACK: Not very good neighbors or agency

FEEDBACK: Not very good neighbors or agency

P.C. Coker, Charleston: It is things like this [Photo: Good neighbors?] that have completely eroded the quality of life in downtown Charleston and particularly south of Broad and east of Lenwood and the French Quarter. Elected officials don’t care either, yet we elected a new mayor last year to supposedly bring some of this under control. Instead we see city council overriding him at every turn because only one of them lives downtown so the others are only looking at how much money comes in.

FEEDBACK:   Shorten presidential selection process for our sanity

FEEDBACK: Shorten presidential selection process for our sanity

Michael Kaynard, Charleston: “No one can say that this presidential race hasn’t been interesting. I believe most will agree that it has been one of the ugliest and most divisive political cycles in modern times. Decades ago, due to limitations in communications, the best way to reach large groups was through rallies and TV ads. Today with the Internet, one can reach huge numbers of people almost instantaneously. …”
