The quote you cited is a thought-provoking one; your point is well taken. My problem is with this idea (I'm paraphrasing) "if people can't be bothered to acquire a Photo ID, they must not be too interested in having a vote". With all due respect, I can't disagree with that more strongly. The people who have *the least* chance of ever being disenfranchised (the Bushes, Clintons, Kochs,…

South Carolina's own State Law Enforcement Division (headed by the state's Republican attorney general) went through those (supposed) 35,000 votes with a fine-toothed comb... and eventually found no reason to believe that any fraud had occurred. The vast majority of that 35k figure you mentioned was eventually determined to be simple cases of human clerical error by poll workers; those happen…

I used the word "freely", which does NOT mean "I got an ID for free". As to your other point, all I'll say is that your experiences are not mine, and mine are not yours... Whether you want to believe it or not, there are Americans who through no particular fault of their own, are not capable of acquiring an ID.

Plan Commission approves zoning changes for Cathedral of Worship

2 years, 5 months ago by Jamie Busen, QuincyJournal.com and WTAD News

Subdivision and church in the works on South 36th

The Quincy Plan Commission in brief session Tuesday night supported several requests.

The Commission voted for a zoning change and subdivision approval for an area west of South 36th Street and north of the Chapel Valley subdivision. Bishop E.L. Warren, with The Cathedral of Worship, asked for a zoning change to single-family residential from rural for a 12.55 acre, L-shaped parcel. The remaining acreage of the parcel doesn't need a zoning change. They've plans to build a worship center in a later phase of development.

Warren has been planning for the past two years for this 27-lot subdivision, to be known as Kingdom Estates.

According to paperwork prepared by the City's Planning and Development staff, the lots will be arranged along a street extending west from South 36th Street, then curving to the south and ending in a cul-de-sac.

Warren, who had numerous chairs in Council chambers filled in support of him, did not address the Commission himself. Tony Crane with Architechnics told the members that Warren held a neighborhood meeting in September where he talked with area residents about the plan. It was attended by about 60 people, Crane said. No one spoke against his requests. The Commission's recommendations will go before the City Council Monday night for final action.

Former Mayor Chuck Scholz spoke on the record in support of Warren.

He said Warren and his Church have done positive things for the community and his ministry was important.

"I have full confidence this will be a high-quality development and I urge the Commission to grant the petitioner's requests," he said.

Commissioners also gave their support to a request from Blessing Hospital. Officials want to build a 160-stall parking lot that would be located at the northwest corner of North 11th and College Ave. and the southwest corner of North 11th and Elm.

They also approved a special permit to Jerry and Julie Smith, who will be moving their Advantage termite and pest control business from the 900 block of Maine to 634 South 11th St.
