Lt. Dan Weekend organizer has sharp words for downtown Beaufort merchants

Surely you'll recall how the Lt. Dan Weekend and the Independence Fund to support injured veterans was a huge aspect of this year's Shrimp Festival.

Well all that was done in hopes of not only a good time but raising money and while the festival was a success for the group ($112,078 raised at cost of about $90,000, according to the group) organizer Steve "Luker" Danyluk is none too happy with the response of the downtown merchants and is chastising them for an "abysmal" monetary contribution.
