Reader Feedback: Hurricanes, Road Repaving

We asked readers to weigh in on hot topics. Here's what they had to say.

Cathy spoke out against the SCPD's efforts, saying: "Leave us boaters alone SCPD. 99.9% of us practice safe boating. Look somewhere else for your salaries and pension money, On another hand get a real job where you have to work for a living and have to produce. Loose the God complex you all walk around with."

Other readers, such as Rob, disagreed. "I hope you don't meet that .1% (and I think it's slightly more) on the waterway. I don't want to see anyone meet their God prematurely," he wrote.
