Letter To The Editor: Don’t Dump on Sullivan’s Island

Dear Editor, The referendum lawsuit on the proposed Sullivan’s Island School should go before a judge this February. Instead of pausing, the school board has proceeded with dumping tons of concrete into footings for the not yet fully designed school. It begs the question. Why would the school board not wait until February when a …

Letter To The Editor: There Ought To Be a Law…And There Is!

Dear Editor, Ever wonder why ridiculously and patently out-of-proportion buildings have not been built on Sullivan’s Island? Because the Town of Sullivan’s Island has local laws (ordinances) designed to prevent just that…and in the not-too-distant past, members of Town Council honored their Oaths of Office and abided by the ordinances passed by previous Town Councils. …

Letter To The Editor: Perkis and McGee

Dear Editor, “So why not look at something altogether different?” That’s the question posed in last Sunday’s Post & Courier’s editorial entitled “Sullivan’s Island school: another idea.” The editors of the Post & Courier suggest considering the idea of relocating the new Sullivan’s Island Elementary School (SIES) to the playing fields in Stith Park, the …

Letter To The Editor: View from the Beach?

Dear Editor, Misrepresentations abound about Sullivan’s Island Elementary School! Take a look at this rendering of the “view from the beach,” pulled from one of CCSD’s own documents. As is obvious from the rendering, much of the proposed school is clearly visible from the beach. Sullivan’s Island residents have been assured over and over by …
