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. …”

FEEDBACK:  Retrofit for bike lane would be bad

FEEDBACK: Retrofit for bike lane would be bad

Alan Hopkins, James Island: “If we repeat it often enough, it must be true! In the case of the Legare Bridge retrofit, a bike path at the cost of a traffic lane adds an unhealthy increase in commuting time to those using the Maybank to Folly corridor as well as the entire Folly Rd corridor. “

Hollings

FEEDBACK: Readers enjoy Hollings’ wit, colorful language

J.J. Anderson, Charleston: “I really enjoyed this article. The phrase, “You don’t know from sic’ em,” I suspect to be a shortened version of the phrase, “You don’t know sic’ em from come here,” referencing the command to a dog to get after someone or something. A command used to release a dog to attack and the “come here” portion is hopefully self-explanatory. ” Letters also from three other readers.

FEEDBACK:  Vote on the bike lane

FEEDBACK: Vote on the bike lane

Judy Carberry, Charleston: “Why not have the people vote on the bike lane in lieu of having the council decide everyone’s wishes? The entire time that lane was shut down, there were precious few people riding bikes, especially during the rush hour. I saw the picture of three bikes and how many cars? I would be interested to know how many days someone had to wait to even get a picture of the three riders. “

FEEDBACK:  Elmore is a hero among us

FEEDBACK: Elmore is a hero among us

Kay Chandler, Mount Pleasant on a hero: “His name is Joe Elmore of the Charleston Animal Society. His article on the carriage trade industry told in depth of the serious and sad conditions the animals face daily. I was born in Charleston and grew up downtown where we would see a real carriage with a few tourists or a bride and groom riding around the Battery.”
