Issac Bailey blog | Atlantic Beach had no Bikefest problems. Gov. Haley should meet with Myrtle Beach officials instead.

Gov. Nikki Haley’s scheduled meeting this week with Atlantic Beach officials highlights part of the absurdity of the discussion surrounding the annual Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest. That small town had no problems during Bikefest yet it is where South Carolina’s governor has chosen to go to urge the town to shut down maybe its only reliable money-maker, and it is being blamed for what happened in the much larger and better-resourced Myrtle Beach.
