Letter To The Editor: Boy! Are Politics Dirty

Kaye Smith, “cutter.” That’s the label a few of my fellow residents have bestowed upon me. “Less than transparent” is another descriptor recently used by Billy Want in an opinion piece in the Post and Courier. Rarely am I called “duly elected councilwoman”, that one seems to be a hard pill for a few people …

Letter To The Editor: Long-term Outlook

We remember Sullivan’s Island of the 1970s, when the primary residences were small homes and beach houses to which Lowcountry owners retreated in the summer months. We remember the beginnings of the land trust and the development of a maritime forest to protect and conserve our natural habitat.  We were here when Hurricane Hugo hit …

Letter To The Editor: A New Motto

Another election already! They seem to come so often and they often seem the same. This election is not that. This election will be momentous for the island’s future. When I served on Town Council I defended the motto that Sullivan’s Island was first and foremost a single family residential community. I believe now a …
