FEEDBACK: Likes wind alternative, but worries about birds

FEEDBACK: Likes wind alternative, but worries about birds

Brian Koller: My big concern if wind energy is used of off the S.C. coast is, will we have any sea birds left after a few years? I’ve read reports that said where other areas have had massive bird kills after the wind turbines were installed. I don’t know if the birds ever get used to the blades, but hate to see a pile of dead birds off the coast. Otherwise I believe wind is a great alternative for fossil fuels.

FEEDBACK: On the VAT, dogs

FEEDBACK: On the VAT, dogs

I enjoyed Senator Hollings piece on “Understanding Washington” and I agree with many of his observations. I’m far less enthusiastic about his suggestion that we institute a VAT (value-added tax) — essentially a sales tax — as a substitute for a dramatic reduction in corporate taxes. As any economist will agree, VAT, or sales taxes, are extraordinarily regressive.

FEEDBACK: Animals are loving, loyal, resilient, forgiving

Bryan Cordell: Everything you wrote I have found to be true, and because my long-time girlfriend runs a rescue agency, I have blessed over the years with lots of friendships with lots of dogs. Oftentimes, I see them in the worst conditions imaginable and it never ceases to amaze me how loving, loyal, resilient and, most importantly, forgiving, animals can be.

FEEDBACK: WalletHub says its study isn’t flawed

FEEDBACK: WalletHub says its study isn’t flawed

I want to make sure you don’t think we merely took a survey of taxpayers’ opinions and left it at that. We actually contrasted it with the ITEP’s 2015 Report and its measurement of South Carolina’s tax regressiveness. This nationally renowned report also fails to address your points, but that does not mean it’s “flawed.”

Gov. Nikki Haley at her 2011 inauguration.

LETTER: Haley on way to backache with so much posturing

I found your article [Brack, Haley’s ambition puts DHEC between rock, hard place] to be amazingly accurate and a reflection of my own thoughts about our governor.
