Liberals will resist Trump’s tyranny. Will you?

That may not be the shadow of the Third Reich I see coming over the hill, but the reverberation of stiff-legged men in jack boots pounding the pavement in unison is unmistakable. When H.L. Mencken wrote that “Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under,” he was forewarning us of the possibility of an American president with a predilection for tyrants. When President Trump finds dictators like Erdogan of Turkey and psychopaths like Duterte of the Philippines praiseworthy, is he merely acting the diplomatic oaf, or is he expressing admiration for a role he foresees for himself?

Myrtle Beach area has too much crime, pays cops too little

It doesn't take very long to realize Myrtle Beach is a high-crime area. The low-life are snatching purses in broad daylight at our shopping malls. It would be nice to hear about a crime being stopped in the act, not after it had been committed. There seems to be a lack of police presence at our malls, and as a result, the bottom feeders are free to do as they please.

Let tourists pay for the roads

What's wrong with you folks? We have more than a million tourists driving to the beach every year; hundreds of out-of-state trucks driving on our roads everyday; and no telling how many out-of-state cars driving through South Carolina daily.

Beach tents help prevent skin cancer

As I sit back and watch the controversy unveil regarding the use of tents on Surfside Beach, I am continuously amazed and a bit appalled by the lack of good judgement. As a healthcare professional myself, and the wife of a spouse who was diagnosed with melanoma (malignant skin cancer), I would hope that educated council members, with a remit to serve the welfare of their community, would apply some sense of reason.
