PHOTO: This story won’t have a happy ending

Charleston isn’t New Orleans. Spotted near Marion Square in two locations on Saturday were Booze Pop vans – portable places that adults could purchase frozen cocktails on a stick. What could be a worse idea than providing another way for tourists on a hot day to party on streets crowded by people and too many cars? This won’t have a happy ending. Note to City Council: Is this the kind of town you really want visitors to see? (On the other hand, maybe we’ll lose our top travel ranking and life downtown will become more Holy City than Disney City.)

PHOTO ESSAY:  Magnolias in Hampton Park

PHOTO ESSAY: Magnolias in Hampton Park

Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard took an annual trip to Hampton Park over the weekend to photograph magnolias in all of their glory. He writes, “Magnolias vary a great deal. Some are beautiful when they first bloom and others when they are near their end. They are all beautiful in their own way. I think there is a parallel that can be drawn regarding people. Embrace the beauty in all of us, no matter how different we are.”
