Listen to Beaufort County Sheriff P.J. Tanner about potential problems with the proposed Ironman Triathlon route.
Tanner is performing the job we elected him to do. Citing public safety needs along the proposed route, our sheriff's objections should take precedence.
Maintaining access for ambulances and fire trucks along U.S. 278 throughout the event should concern everyone, including the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.
I for one do not want to be held hostage by any event that jeopardizes public safety requirements or creates gridlock on the island.
Never miss a local story.
