Letters to the Editor: Colonial Lake's plants are in flower - Charleston Post Courier
Many citizens have found a way to contribute to the beauty of this park, the Colonial Common, a 1768 grant from the British Crown to the people of Charlestown.Cash and securities may be donated to the Charleston Parks Conservancy or to the city of Charleston (FBO Colonial Lake Park). Volunteers are always welcome.Many plants need watering year-round. We work this park every Tuesday and Thursday morning.The vision for the Colonial Common will be furthered when work commences on Moultrie Playground. Hundreds of volunteers and donors are needed and invited to participate in this grand civic improvement. Join me and so many others. Yours is a gift to future generations.MICHAEL MASTERRutledge AvenueCharlestonRepeal ‘CON’ lawThe Oct. 17 Post and Courier reported on the “turf war” in which local hospital systems are engaged to stop each other from building facilities or providing services in Berkeley and Charleston counties.Hospital systems use the state Certification of Need law to stymie competitors’ plans while they proceed with their own.
Charleston hospitals at war over MUSC's plans to build in Berkeley CountyWorse, they use the CON process and considerable resources to keep independent, cost-effective, high quality options from operating in our communities.The reason, as stated in the article, is that competition would have financial consequences for the established companies.We think the consequences of the CON law are far more detrimental to patients than competition might be for feuding health care systems.We have the ninth most restrictive CON law in the country and, as a direct result, insufficient numbers of surgery centers, addiction treatment facilities, birthing centers and other services.South Carolina has an estimated 6,331 fewer hospital beds than needed, 10-19 fewer MRI facilities than needed and 33-44 fewer CT scanners than needed.Rural patients travel farther for routine procedures and treatments, and urban patients are artificially limited to expensive, hospital-owned facilities.Charity medical care, a condition of the CON law, is less in our state than in non-CON states, according to a study by George Mason University Mercatus Center (bit.ly/36tcacm).The end result chokes off options for patients.

Flowers out, tech in: Massive Kendall Square-like development in South End nears approval
Several major office projects, including in Charlestown, Brighton, and Dorchester, have taken a similar tack, trying to attract companies that want to recruit urban workers but avoid the hassles and higher costs that can come with the city's core business districts.The 4,000 to 7,000 jobs that Abbey Group hopes to bring to a somewhat isolated part of the South End could put more traffic on already-busy streets. Transportation studies estimate the project, fully built, would generate more than 5,000 car, taxi, and ride-share trips per day, along with 2,300 commutes on public transit - despite being a walk of about three-quarters of a mile from both the MBTA's Back Bay and Broadway stations.
Traffic concerns were a consistent issue through months of public meetings, and Abbey Group managing partner William Keravuori pledged "significant contributions" to improve transportation in the neighborhood. They include funding to rebuild Albany Street in the area with bike and bus lanes and to finance other street improvements, as well as to extend the South Bay Harbor Trail for pedestrians and bicyclists through the area.The developer has also promised to work with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority to improve bus service or provide commuter shuttles - commonly used in the Seaport, Kendall Square, and Longwood Medical Area - to subway and commuter rail stations.Despite that, neighborhood groups worry
Exchange South End could still overwhelm nearby streets, and they're seeking firmer commitments from Abbey Group on transit improvements - including, perhaps, for help with an onramp to the expressway."We have substantial concerns as a group as to what 1,200 vehicles (the project would include nearly 1,200 parking spaces) added to the neighborhood will do to already choked streets and highways," leaders of the Washington Gateway Main Street group wrote to the BPDA on Monday. "WGMS strongly recommends that the proponent more directly address connectivity issues around the site."
Both the potential job growth and the traffic worries reflect the rapid changes underway in the neighborhood.The development site isn't far from the always-under-construction Boston Medical Center and is across the street from property where a 650-unit apartment building, Harrison Albany Block, is planned.p...

Daughter visits parent's grave on Mother's Day to discover it turned into a BUILDING SITE
Irene Hayward was well-known in Shipley, West Yorks., as the owner of a local shop which she ran until she retired and has been buried at Charlestown Cemetery in Baildon, near Bradford, West Yorks.
Mrs Coles, a retired shop worker, said she had ordered a headstone two weeks ago.
She said: "You have to wait until a grave has settled before you can put in a stone and I dread to think what would have happened to it, it would probably have got smashed."
Mrs Coles' husband, John, 66, rang Bradford Council bereavement services in search of an explanation.
He said: "They were very nice and apologetic, basically saying it shouldn't have happened and that park workers had back-filled the grave because the gravediggers weren't available.
"They also said it would all be made good."
However, despite promises, the following afternoon the rutted and muddy site remained unchanged and covered with mounds of soil.
The council has now apologised and tidied up all three plots.
A spokesman said: "The way this area was left following the infilling of a new grave was totally unacceptable and we accept that the problem was made worse because of the timing, coinciding with Mothering Sunday.
"Problems were caused by saturated ground, the snow on Friday and a shortage of staff in Charlestown Cemetery, although this does not excuse what happened and we would like to apologise to all visitors to the cemetery and particularly to the family members whose plots were affected.
"We have done our best to restore the area as soon as possible but because of the condition of the ground, it will take a while for us to get it back to its best.
"We will continue to work on the area until everyone is satisfied with how it looks."
Mrs Coles said she was glad the council had responded swiftly to the problem but said it "shouldn't have happened in the first pl... (Express.co.uk)Feb 3, 2016

Nancy enjoyed many years of work as an information specialist at IBM, where she made many lasting friendships. Nancy had a way of making friends wherever she went. It was not unusual to see her extend her hand to a new face, exclaiming, “Nancy Melagrano, how do you do?”
Nancy loved to travel. She spent much time vacationing in Europe and on the island of St. Martin. She... (Lewisboro Ledger)
