In some ways we're approaching the start of my calendar year - work-wise, anyway.

The recent, huge, nearly 100-page Best of Savannah issue and accompanying awards party which happened last week mark the busiest time, the high-water mark as it were, of Connect Savannah's year.

The annual free SCAD graduation concert in Forsyth Park - featured on our cover this week and for which this year there's an extraordinary amount of buzz - has become our final landmark pending the arrival of the summer months.

For us, summer isn't only vacation time, but a planning and incubation period when we prepare to roll out new features, strategies and content plans for the fall.

This summer we're working very hard on several new and very significant content upgrades for the fall which I have every confidence will be received with open arms by our readers.

Best of luck to all recent SCAD grads, and remember: If the brutal job market gets you down, there are lots of entertainment options in Connect Savannah to distract you!

  • Editor's Note: Tourists in our own hometown?

    Downtown is now ringed with hotels, many of which have been allowed to rise higher than traditional building designs we’re used to in the historic district. Like tree branches competing for sunlight, this “race to the top” means the Savannah skyline is increasingly like a walled city. Or, as some critics observe, a gated community for tourists.

  • Editor's Note: Strategizing the Strategic Plan

    One could easily argue that a hundred grand is chump change compared to the amount of wasted money and bad PR — water/utility billing software fiasco, cough-cough – that comes from an overall lack of a sane and cohesive strategy. But we already have an elected City Council, a very highly paid City Manager, and a second, lame-duck City Manager still on payroll through the year.
