Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Fountain Wharf, on Charleston, South Carolina&#x27;s historic harbor, will serve as the headquarters of the Lowcountry #Getcovered Surge Center
Charleston, SC- You can take public transit to sign up for secure access for healthcare for your family in Charleston, SC while planning your trip online, learning what the ETA for your bus at your stop is in real time and perhaps a side trip to Charleston’s holiday shopping district.  The Lowcountry #Getcovered Surge Center provides in person certified healthcare Navigator support to any client who wants to find out what their options are under the new law at no charge.  Persons planning to visit the center should call ahead to make an appointment at (843) 475-2859, however walk in Navigation sessions which may require some waiting are also available.  The center will be open weekdays until Dec. 20, 9 am to 5 pm.

Hungryneck Straphangers, a public transit advocacy group in Mount Pleasant, has put a web page online providing detailed instructions and interacting trip planning links at http://busec.org/... for public transit trips from all parts of the Lowcountry now.

The http://busec.org/... webpage includes preprogrammed links for transit trips from major bus stops in the area using Google Transit.  There is also a link to bus tracker, which allows riders to find out the exact arrival time of their bus at their stop based on real time GPS bus location and movement data and background Google maps traffic information.

Full information on the Lowcountry #Getcovered Surge Center can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/...

While people going to the center are downtown, they use the Free Aquarium DASH bus line to complete their trip, which runs from the Vistiors Center to the Surge Center’s location at Fountain Walk, next to the SC Aquarium.  Other Free DASH bus lines can take visitors to the City to shopping on King and Market Streets, to the nearby Medical Complex and to parks and historic sites around Charleston.

Clients can also drive to the Surge Center.  Parking slips for the adjacent garage can be validated for clients.

A one page summary of the Center and it's operation is available online in PDF as well.
