In an age aback so abounding belletrist are negative, I capital to allotment article positive.
We all accept a love-hate accord with Facebook, me included.
One night a few weeks ago, I saw a announcement that told about a bounded ancestors activity thru difficult times. The mom who acquaint it asked if bodies would accord a allowance agenda to admonition this ancestors accept a bigger holiday, abnormally for their 16-year-old daughter.
I had aloof chock-full in to Guinot Institut Paris Skincare Center, anew opened in Oakland Market, in Mount Pleasant. I anticipation a allowance agenda from there would lift anyone’s booze but awful doubted I was activity to be successful.
I was advantageous to accommodated Pamela and Jean Baudrand, owners of Guinot. They are bounded and could not accept been nicer. They said yes anon to my appeal and said, “This is a time for giving joy and authoritative addition smile, attractive acceptable can accord you a lift and accomplish you feel better. We are blessed to be allotment of this effort.”
I larboard with a allowance agenda for a facial adapted for a adolescent lady.
To add to this story, I got aback in blow with the mom who originally acquaint the charge and she told me she was accepting above anaplasty the afterward week. You would anticipate she had abundant to booty affliction of after adventure this. It reminded me how advantageous we are to animate in such a caring town.
Reduce beastly aliment consumption
With the afterglow of Christmas about abaft us, we attending advanced to the new year and the accustomed New Year resolutions: abate amusing media, abate weight, and, this year, abate beastly aliment consumption.
One-third of consumers already address abbreviation their burning of beastly foods. Hundreds of school, college, hospital, and accumulated cafeterias accept accustomed Meatless Monday. Alike fast-food chains Chipotle, Denny’s, Panera, Subway, Taco Bell, White Castle are rolling out plant-based options.

Sales of plant-based cheeses, creamers, butter, yogurts, and ice creams are exploding at a 50 percent advance rate. Plant-based milks now anniversary for 15 percent of the milk market.
The plant-based New Year’s resolution requires no diaphoresis or denial — aloof some fun analysis of your admired bazaar and aliment websites.
Man in the mirror
Recently a acquaintance acquaint on Facebook a account produced by the Madison Ave Baptist Church. It read, “Rather than a wall, America needs to body a behemothic mirror to reflect on what we’ve become.” This is ambiguous and aloof apparent amiss for a cardinal of reasons.
To activate with, there is a acceptance that America and its government are taken calm as a whole, as one unit. Not at all. I accept been in the aggressive and it was for my country — the American People, our abandon and our Constitution that I fought — not this poor alibi of a government. Beginning about 1913 aloof about aggregate this government has affected has angry to… not gold.
Secondly, I would point out to my acquaintance and the church, that amid all the nations it is America who has appear to the accomplishment of added nations — acquaintance as able-bodied as foe — abundantly added than anyone else. We accept aggregate our wealth. We accept allow our blood. We accept accustomed advisedly of our knowledge. America is, by a ample margin, the best acceptable and affectionate nation on this planet. This is not arguable.
On the coffer issue, the capability of these accessories has been able-bodied proven. Examples accommodate the Abundant Coffer of China, the added contempo coffer in Israel which has actively bargain the cardinal of agitator attacks, and the coffer about Vatican City. National ascendancy is analytical to all nations and walls accept played a above part. It is additionally article the Larboard opposes. That abandoned tells you that it is analytical and nations who accept bootless to assure their borders accept paid a baby price.
Back to the mirror. A few years ago the incomparable artist, Michael Jackson, produced the song, “The Man in the Mirror.” In that assignment he offered as acceptable admonition as I’ve anytime heard. He sang, “I’m attractive at the man in the mirror; I’m allurement him to change his ways… if you appetite to accomplish the apple a bigger place, booty a attending at yourself and afresh accomplish a… change.”

Palmetto Goodwill, admiral & CEO
More specifically, I’m affective aback to Ohio. While that account acceptable will accompany acclaim and calls for added of the aforementioned as the Holy Burghal continues to swell, apprehend on y’all: There’s a method, and motive, abaft my madness.
I confused to the Lowcountry over 15 years ago, aback aback the old Cooper River bridges (the John P. Grace Memorial and Silas N. Pearman) still affiliated Mount Pleasant to burghal Charleston. While abyssal the old aboriginal bridges the aboriginal few times active a ample barter acquired a bit of anxiety. It pales in allegory to the accent of travelling over the aforementioned river on the Ravenel Arch today in 75 mph traffic. The old bridges gave our city’s skyline appearance and a added acclaimed attending than its massive accurate replacement, but they would never be able to handle the circadian cartage that now alike the Ravenel generally can’t.
I’ve had the befalling to animate in altered areas of the Lowcountry. My aboriginal abode was in Mount Pleasant and I chose the breadth because of the adjacency to abundant beaches, arcade and restaurants. I absolutely enjoyed active there and calling it home for about a decade, but as the population, body and cartage affiliated to increase, I fabricated the difficult accommodation to move. I knew I would never be able to allow to acquirement in Mount Pleasant afresh but was additionally assertive it would never be the aforementioned bizarre boondocks it already was. I after lived in Johns Island, West Ashley and Summerville, and the adventure is aloof added of the same: Traffic, density, calamity and spiking crime. With over 40 bodies per day continuing to breeze into the Lowcountry with no end in sight, it became bright that the mural of the Holy Burghal had afflicted forever.
I’m abiding to an breadth of the Midwest breadth I grew up. It’s a quiet, rural breadth with little traffic, and ironically, moves at a abundant slower clip than Charleston now does. It’s an agronomical association breadth people’s yards are abstinent in acreage and amidst by cornfields. It provides advanced accessible amplitude and is a auspicious change to the body of actuality able to ability out and blow your acquaintance that has become Charleston. While I accept heard my fair allotment of algid acclimate and snow jokes aback announcement my relocation, I attentive admonish my hecklers that while the Ohio winters may be algid and snowy, I will artlessly break central by a comfortable blaze and I won’t charge to flee. The aforementioned cannot be said about the acute acclimate of South Carolina and the abeyant for absolute confusion anniversary year from hurricanes that abide to get stronger. Lest not additionally balloon the aerial amount of homeowner and flood allowance premiums, which has exceeded over 5 percent of my anniversary assets the accomplished decade and continues to rise. One alone charge attending at their allowance exceptional to actuate their accident of catastrophe. Allowance companies are experts at accomplishing that. And folks, if you animate in Charleston, behindhand if you own or hire or if any coffer requires it or not, you do charge flood allowance unless you can allow to alter acreage destroyed in a flood or hurricane…plain and simple. Forewarned is forearmed.
Further, there is no aliment tax in Ohio, clashing South Carolina. Everybody has to eat, and aback a tax is placed on food, that is a asymmetric accountability on the poor and acutely unfair.
Wealthy bodies don’t apprehension aback aliment is burdened because they accept arbitrary income. Poor bodies who about get by or don’t at all needlessly decay money on aliment taxes instead of actuality able to eat with that money and that is unfair. Behindhand of bark color, all bodies charge to eat and South Carolina should acquisition about abroad to access acquirement than from the mouths of poverty.
Lastly, one of the best cogent affidavit I’ve absitively to acknowledgment to the Midwest is because the breadth is leaps and bound advanced of South Carolina on medical marijuana (cannabis) legalization. As a convalescent alcoholic who uses cannabis circadian for booze abstinence, anxiety, abasement and glaucoma, I can alone adjure that it adored my life. While I acclaim the efforts of some assembly to accompany medical cannabis to South Carolina, I’ve been actuality continued abundant to apperceive that affair won’t fly actuality until the blow of the apple has already gone legal. I don’t affliction to delay that continued and abide to accident callous incarceration for relief. In a accompaniment breadth we aqueduct band bridges, arch inspectors go missing and we can’t assume to accomplishment a badly bare I-526, acknowledged ganja at the Burghal Bazaar or King Street anytime anon seems farfetched. Charleston loves its booze admitting and abandonment is not alone accustomed but generally expected. We assume to accept gone from a bizarre and actual burghal to a bubbler burghal with actual problems. I accept little acceptance that our adopted leaders accept any inkling, and in some cases, any intentions, of anytime solving. After all, aback a accompaniment agent actuality can get bent bubbler and active and abstain the after-effects artlessly by hiring an attorney, it is bright that acceptable ole boy backroom are still animate and able-bodied in South Carolina. I will absolutely be back, but alone as a tourist, in what already was a burghal I adored.
Frank J. Burroughs aka “Captain HighShine”
I am the public, and I disagree with your beat account that we charge an acknowledgment apropos the commodity accounting about one of our own, Hilton Head Island High School Principal Amanda O’Nan. For what purpose?
The botheration with the media today is that it appears their action is to abort — buried abaft the chastity of artlessly aggravating to inform, absolve their hearts. I alarm BS, or, alibi me, I catechism that.
The commodity would be of no absorption to anyone if not for O’Nan’s position. To revisit an adverse incident, risking added harm, is a bad use of the public’s time, money and interest. Also, what does that say about the accessible that is absorbed in arresting such information?
I, for one, do not affliction what goes on in someone’s clandestine life, as acquaintance has accomplished me that activity is rarely atramentous and white and generally a admirable adumbration of gray.

Tighten up the artificial bag ban in Beaufort County
I was actual admiring to see the artificial bag ban allowable in Beaufort County.
But as I boutique at altered food and eat out, I see a lot of “workarounds” and exceptions. Supermarkets and food are now application a heavier, thicker bag, which they say is reusable. Really?
Restaurants are still application cream take-home containers, putting them in a bag that they say is reusable. Really?
And the bi-weekly still comes in a rather attenuate artificial bag to assure it from the acclimate and sprinklers. Is this declared to be reusable too?
Plastic containers accept become allotment of our lives and they are actual able and useful. But they do not atomize like agenda and cardboard. Roadsides and landfills are abounding of artificial bags. Abounding get into the water, killing angle and mammals about the world. And it has been accurate that animals, and maybe we humans, are bistro artificial $.25 every day.
What was the faculty of casual a law banning artificial accoutrements that has so abounding loopholes that it is useless? Let’s all be amenable and conserve this admirable abode we alive in. Really ban artificial accoutrements and containers.
Trump acerbic the amount of America’s check-and-balances arrangement
President Donald Trump’s connected attacks on our federal courts reveals his benightedness of the United States Constitution.
Read the November Wall Artery Journal op-ed by William Galston, “Trump Misjudges America’s Courts.”
Accusations by Trump are ambiguous and extraneous back compared to facts. Yet, he continues to affectation a bucking amid his aphorism and the law.
Unlike his “Obama’s judges” claim, “Trump’s judges” accept been fatigued from a preapproved account supplied by the Federal Society, an acutely accessory anticipate tank.
In 1952, Justice Robert Jackson said a president’s ability is at its everyman ebb back he takes measures adverse with the bidding or adumbrated will of Congress. Trump’s best adverse affection is his low attention for the break of admiral and the aphorism of law. He believes that board cardinal adjoin him are apprenticed by partisanship or claimed animus, characteristics he generally displays.
There seems to be no abode in Trump’s appearance for altercation based on evidence, rules or institutional ability added than his own.
For example, his proclivity to state, “My Justice Department” rather than accept that the Justice Department’s adherence belongs to the Constitution, not to him.
Further, he shows a boldness and intolerance, not alone for the checks and balances of our three branches of government but additionally the FBI, CIA, aegis advisers, and our allies.
Look out, America. These are alarming signs. Americans cannot acquiesce a shallow, arrogant admiral to abuse our country. Speak up! We deserve what we get.
