I, myself wouldn't donate even if I were offered a million in cash on the spot. But that's anotherRead More story. What grabs my craw is, people have to be lured and bribed in order for them to give. If it's a good cause, then people should volunteer more often. Not just when there's a "Drive" with a possible reward. I know many will disagree with me but I'm looking at it from an altruistic angle. You know?!

The Mount Pleasant Police have finally found their calling, I hope they remember to rinse afterRead More applying soap, but they may have to call SLED or Sheriffs Office to help with rinsing, but you never know it may be a civil matter. They may not be able to get involved.

I would like to kindly comment that your headline is completely inappropriate and terriblyRead More offensive. Many of us in this town love Nick, have known him his entire life, and support Nick and his family through this horrible accident. There is NO "setback".... and you should not use your media and headlines to sensationalize this personal life challenge. As far as Nick's progress, there have ONLY been miracles, forward progress, and rejoicing, because Nick is alive, and his major organs are intact, and there is no brain damage. He is waking up. Losing his leg is a negative, but NOT a setback. Nick will overcome the loss of a leg, and live a full life, despite the fact that he was recently at deaths door.

I'm sorry if the headline offends anyone. My coverage of this incident is simply to inform theRead More public about a well-liked person's medical progress after a very public and tragic accident. I appreciate your feedback, but a headline calling this most recent development a 'miracle' would be outrageously offensive, in my opinion. Please email or call me if you'd like discuss the story further: adam.crisp@patch.com or 843-416-8707.

Well said Laurie Bixler! 21 days later he is still FIGHTING HARD and it is a MIRACLE he is ALIVE! NoRead More brain damage, strong heart, and a STRONG WILL TO LIVE! As Laurie said losing his leg is a negative, but he will adjust with the help of so many people who love and care for him! He will comeback from this better than ever! Please don't use his personal struggles to make your TMZ type headlines.....

That is a solution. There is another affordable, environmentally friendly solution... it is calledRead More paper bag. www.paperbag.com?

JoSCh - I was all with you until you said "people let their pit bulls run wild on theRead More beach". #1, of the million times I've been to the beach, the loose dog culprits are always retrievers, boykins, or small dogs. If I have seen a pit bull, I don't recall. But it pisses me off that so many people disregard the leash laws so I can't bring my well behaved pit bull on the beach because god forbid some loose dog run up to him & they scuffle because the other dog has no manners in greeting - it would be my dog's fault because of his breed. What BS. Go to the dog parks people! & it's not just about my pit bull (who by the way, I refer to as a dog); I can't take my mutt there either for the same reason. Their safety, & my peace of mind is more important than an idiot who doesn't care to follow the law. There's absolutely nothing wrong w/ my dog because he comes from a certain breed. He's 12 yrs old, has had a host of health issues, is now a lazy senior citizen, & has always been a loving, cuddly dog. Dog's are individuals, just like people (but not "like" people - as in, I don't think they are people). You can't lump them together because of what you've seen a few do. Otherwise, all pugs would be sketchy & untrustable, goldendoodles would be my least favorite because 2 have snapped @ me, miniature poodles & chi's nip anything that moves, retrievers are always rude in their approach to other dogs & their owners think the earth revolves around them & leash laws don't apply.

Jamie, I'm sure your pitbull is a great dog, but I wasn't trying to make this a my team/your teamRead More argument. Pitbulls are the poster dog for aggression, and were easy to use as an example because everybody knows it. You being in denial about it because you have a nice one really doesn't make sense. We selectively breed certain traits into them and pitbulls were bred to be aggressive. It's not their fault, not your fault, but it DID happen. And that isn't to say that other dogs can't be aggressive, even the most gentle dogs can be in certain situations. My hound mutt will also put rude or scared dogs in their place. That's just how dogs are and have been for millennia. I just don't care how the other dogs owner reacts when I let dogs fight. They're better at conflict resolution than we are.
