Lowcountry Broil

What’s with the traffic lights along Ribaut?
Thank you for allowing us to Sound Off!!! My complaint is the wait time at the traffic signal on Ribaut Road and Spanish Point Drive. Also all along Ribaut Road to Boundary Street. Please, does anyone care? Is there anyone there? Help us save gas and time. Lowcountry Broiled.

Get well soon, Mr. Mobley
Mr. Mobley at Mobley’s Shoe Repair (Beaufort’s only cobbler) has been in the hospital for a few weeks and is slowing getting back to work. What a wonderful man with such a wonderful heart for people.  He is a real craftsman in the shoe/leather repair business. l wish him well and hope he quickly recovers back to his 100% form!

Properly identify building’s history
I have seen more than one article regarding the opening of Lowcountry Produce on Carteret Street and would like to clarify one fine point since it has been referred to continuously as the old city hall.  For the uninformed, and newcomers, and the GenX and I generation, the building was originally built in 1917 as the U.S. Post Office, and was used as such for a lot longer than it was the “old city hall.” If my memory serves me correctly, the city did not start using it as city hall until the late 1970’s.  For a town that dwells upon its history, how did this small bit of history evade detection?

How do you feel about the situation at Beaufort High School? Did you get a boot on your car parking downtown or would you like to thank a stranger for a random act of kindness? Here’s your chance to sound off about what you love and hate. Send your comments to LowcountryBroil@gmail.com and you could see them in our new column called Lowcountry Broil. Don’t worry: They’re all anonymous. (Any specific negative references to people or businesses will not be published.)
