BRACK: City must find courage to stem growth of hotels

BRACK: City must find courage to stem growth of hotels

By Andy Brack, editor and publisher | It’s pretty sad – and kind of amazing – that a 10-year-old can reach a common-sense conclusion that seems to elude a majority of Einstein members of Charleston City Council and its planning commission.

“Daddy, we don’t need any more hotels,” my daughter said while looking recently at the skyline pollution of crane after crane.

No, honey, we don’t. What we need are city leaders who will start listening and thinking about the continuing glut of hotels and what greed to build more will cause down the line.

CARTOON:  Another hotel?

CARTOON: Another hotel?

Talented Columbia cartoonist and Statehouse Report fan Robert Ariail sent along this Charleston-centric cartoon, blending the demolition of a historic house that can’t be saved with the ever-present shroud that developers keep erecting more hotels on the peninsula, leaving many residents feeling that the historic area is becoming more of a museum than a city. Thanks, Robert!

MYSTERY:  This one will be tough

MYSTERY: This one will be tough

We’re betting none of our readers have actually seen this building, but maybe the computer wizards will be able to figure out where it is using Internet smarts. Two clues: First, it’s not in South Carolina. Second, it’s not associated with Red Roof Inns (the expert searchers might understand this.)

Send your best guess to: — and make sure to include the name of the town in which you live. There might even be a special prize for this one.
