FEEDBACK:  Comments on what to do about Confederate monuments

FEEDBACK:  Comments on what to do about Confederate monuments

Bryan Harrison, Charleston: “As a history lover and admirer of sculpture, this great-great-grandson of a Confederate soldier who owned no slaves wants peace and tranquility. A lifelong champion of civil rights, I am now being painted with same brush as Nazis and Ku Kluxers. [Charleston Mayor John] Tecklenberg’s idea and your article is a welcome statement. ” Also, letters by Ken Kammer and George Graf.

FEEDBACK:  State should consider bottle bill for roads

FEEDBACK:  State should consider bottle bill for roads

Frank Scalise, Powdersville: I believe the State of South Carolina has to consider a bottle bill and an increased tax on fast food. All proceeds of unreturned bottles and fast food tax should go to road clean-up with county and local roads as the main focus of clean-up. Just as not everyone has children in school but still is taxed to provide an educated society for our future, not everyone litters but we need to do something to provide a clean planet for our future.

FEEDBACK:  Text of the week

FEEDBACK:  Text of the week

SENN:  Andy Im  just getting around to reading old newspapers. As you may know I have always been a Henry supporter. But to say that the female candidate “charmed her way into the wallets of republican businessmen” rather than she earned their respect enough to give her money is totally sexist! And here I thought Liberals were not supposed to be sexist!
