I just got back from vacation at our favorite location, Charleston, SC. We had a blast and my son got to do two of his favorite things; walk in front of Rainbow Row and “Ride-on-a-boat.” The smiles on his face were priceless, or it will feel like that when we get the credit card bills next month. But even while I was gone, big things were happening in Greenville. So I will just make a few observations.
The new inland port that is coming brings up a few questions. How are we going to handle the additional traffic? I was comforted this morning when I read in “The Greenville News” that the South Carolina DOT is on top of it and is making plans. They can’t say how many additional trucks will be involved or what their traffic plans are, but with their record of bringing great ROI, doesn’t it make you feel very comforted they are at the helm? (Port reference intended.)
My son is excited about seeing the boats he saw in the port at Charleston, in Greenville County. I will let you explain that to him.
I was also happy to see Governor Haley is getting her re-election campaign together. Let’s see, we just closed state employment offices in 17 counties, the most rural and often with the highest unemployment rate, because they did not have enough traffic to call for keeping them open. So to get Mrs. Hailey to keep her job, we call that retention; she is planning to hire 32 people. Good God!!! Thirty two people per participant!. No wonder they closed the offices down. I just hope she hires local…and the unemployed. Then we should be proud of her.
