On the wings of an Angel: Charleston County's giant Angel Oak may soon get new neighbors - a lot of neighbors. But, as the The Charleston City Paper reports, "Last-minute petitions look to stall Johns Island development" that would place a 600-unit Angel Oak Village on 21 acres near the popular oak.
Save The Angel Oak protesters try to make it clear the Angel Oak won't be cut down. But they still don't like the development.
The argument against the project is kind of like NIMBYism (Not In My Back Yard), if your backyard was acres of woods and your home was an iconic tree. The Angel Oak is almost like a second home for Samantha Siegel. She spent three months writing a book at its trunk.
